Lil Rinser Splashguard

I receved a Lil Rinser Splashguard for review this week from Pat at  Thanks chris for sending it to us.

Picture of the Lil Rinser we recieved

The Lil Rinser Splashguard is a shield you put around your childs face when rinseing there hair in the bath tub to keep soap and water out of there face. It has a soft comfortable handel, a soft rim that bends and flexes to your little ones head, the rim diverts water away from there face. the Lil Rinser comes in four great fun colors we got the purple one its a great color that my 4 year old was excited about. It sells for about $10.00 at  you can also get them on amazon and babys r us

Neither of my gilrs like water being pored over there heads my two year old is the worst, I have to say i wasent shure it would really work. I bought a cup thing at walmart about a year a go that is supost to have a splash guard thing on it to keep water out of your little ones face and it was a total flop for us so when the Lil Rinser came this week I expected it to be a flop too. Ok I was completely wrong the Lil Rinser was great it kept the water and soap out of my two and four year olds face.

 I tried it on my two year old first sliped it on around her forehead I had her hold it because she is in the me do it stage.  she giggled and kept saying no bubbles in my eyes momma as i was rinsing her hair. Her hair rinsed easily the soap came right out and we didnt have any leaks. Next up was my four year old she said Momma this thing ROCKS! why didnt we get this before. I ask her if she was getting any bubbles in her eyes and she told me nothing at all.  The next night i had Nana try it I did not even explain how it worked just to see if she could figure it out. She said it was easy to use but the only problem she has was she didnt get all the soap out of her hair right above her ear.

So the Lil Rinser will be staying in our bath tub It worked great for us It was easy enough for Nana to use, it was flexable and comfortable, and It will be a product I recomend it to parents that have little ones that dont like water in there face.

JuJu Menstrual Cup

I wanted to send a big Thnaks to Brenda from the JuJu company for sending me the JuJu menstrual cup to review.

First the Facts and stats on the JuJu Menstrual Cup.
The Juju Menstrual cup is a cup that is used instead of a Pad or tampon it is rinsed and reused and can last up to ten years. So your saving lots of money in the long run  They are currently selling for $55.99 on there site The JuJu cup is currently no for sale in the USA or Canada but they hope tobe able to sell to the USA and Canada soon.
the JuJu cup comes in two sizes Model 1 for children who DO NOT have children and are under 30 years of age. Model 2 is for women over 30 years of age and or have had a child.
They are a silicone cup, and is 100% hypo-allergenic and contains no additives such as dyes.
Model 1 Capacity is 20ml with a 40mm diameter, rim to base of the cup is 46mm and rim to stem is 65mm
Model 2 Capacity is 30ml with a 46mm diameter, rim to base of the cup is 50mm and rim to stem is 69mm
My JuJu cup came in a great box that opened like a flower which i thought was cool There pouches come in three great colors blue green and a purple sorta color. There pouches are very well made they are a satin type material and they are lined so there is no raw edge on the inside of your pouch.
I have been using my JuJu cup exclusively for two cycles now I am a mommy so they recommend the size 2 cup for me. I am able to use both the model 1 and the Model 2 cup with out and leaks.  The model 2 cup Feels Firmer to me than the model 1 cup does so the bottom is a bit harder to pinch than the model one but I can still remove it Just fine. The stem of the JuJu cup is triangle shaped and soft and flexible The stem on the Model 2 is a bit long for me but its soft and flexible enough that i haven't felt the need to trim it.  the grip on the JuJu cup is a cute flower design but Its not very raised so it can be a bit slippery to grip and its the only real thing i can say needs improvement the flower design of it is great but it needs to be a bit more raised.  the Suction release holes are around the upper part of the rim instead of under it like my femme cup and they are smaller. The JuJu cup does have the JuJu name on the inside around the rim but i don't have any trouble cleaning it i simply rinse mine with a mild soap and water if i find any thing in the suction release holes i fill it with water place my hand on top and squeeze the bottom and it forces water through the holes and cleans them quite well.
I am please with both sizes of the JuJu cup and both sizes are comfortable for me to use I use the Model 2 cup For the beginning of my cycle because it has a larger capacity and the model 1 Cup for the rest of my cycle. I typically empty my cup once a day or twice a day depending on if i feel like it or not. I have yet to experience any leaks. I recently Helped my dad build a shop and went an entire day from 6am to 5pm with out emptying it or even thinking about it I completely forgot about it its that comfortable and easy to use. If i had been using a pad or tampon i would have had to change every 2-3 hours.
I hope you found the review helpful and if you have any questions feel free to email me or leave a comment.

Garanimals Clothing

Today I am Doing a review on Granimal kids clothes. I wasn't planning on doing a review on them but due to the great customer service I received I decided a Review was in order.

I recently bought a pair of granimal pants for my daughter at walmart. The seam came apart the first time i washed them she hadn't even got to put them on yet. I was a bit upset that they fell apart and wasn't planning on buying any more Granimal Products. I decided to contact customer service about the problem. They were very polite and wanted to know the UPC number from the item that I had the problem with. I then received a note back saying they were going to send me a replacement item and ask what size and color I would like. I replied back that a 3t was the size I had bought and they had been a pair of grey pants. About a week later I received a package in the mail Containing not one pair of pants that i thought I was getting But three Complete Outfits. I am completely impressed with the company they not only had great customer service but they stood by there product and sent me sent me a bonus for the trouble. I can now say I will be continuing to buy Granimal products.

I hope you found this review helpful and will continue following my blog for more great reviews.

Bumbo Baby seat

Picture is from the walmart website

today's review is the Bumbo baby seat.

The Bumbo is a seat designed for small baby's who can not yet sit up on there own. It providees them with proper support and alignment.  The Bumbo can be found at most stores that carry baby products. this is the original bumbo site they run about $44.00 at walmart and that includes the tray.

We have had our bumbo for several years now the coating has woren down some where there legs sit. But you have to know this has gone thought 6 kids counting mine and my sisters kids.  It has been a well loved seat.  It has done its job well My daughters were able to sit up in it at about 3 months and we used it tell they were about 8-9 months when they both learned to twist side ways and pop them selves out of the seat. The tray was very handy for small gerber puffs and diced veggies it was also a great play place to put toys for them to play and kept them in the seat a bit longer once they learned to pop them selves out of it. 

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful if you have any questions please feel free to ask

There was a recall on them a couple years a go it was for the addition of a sticker warning parents to put the bumbo on the floor. Aparently there were a few parents who didnt use commen sence and placed it on tables chairs coutches etc with baby in it and they fell off and babys got hurt. There was never actually anthing wrong with the seat. Just be smart and think when you use it and youll be fine.

Over all its a great seat for small babies my girls loved it I would recomend it. The only down side to the Bumbo baby seat is its a bit on the pricy side.

Cloud B Twilight Ladybug

Today's Review is the Twilight Ladybug
by Cloud B product
 This is there site if you'd like to check them out.  It sells for about $29.95 but we got ours locally at a conservation center and i believe we paid $25.00 for it. They also have Twilight sea Turtle that is very cute also. We bought the Lady Bug for my daughter last year because I call her lady bug.

What it is and How it Works:
This is a cute lady bug that Lights Up to project a full night sky on the ceiling and walls of your child's room. You have three colored light options that will project different colored stars. You can select which color you like on the back side of its shell. You have the options of Blue, Green, or Red. My daughters like the blue the best but then again they pick blue for everything. The shell illuminates to give off a soft glow which is a great night light for mom. Its just bright enought for me to check if there covers are on with out waking them up. It has an automatic 45 minute shut off that is nice because it saves on batteries. It runs off three AAA batteries. They last quite a while for us and we use it every night at bed time and then some times during the night if i need to check on her. Batteries usually last us 6+months.  There is a flap you can open on the bottom to access the battery compartment it does require a small screw driver to open it.  The Lady bugs dimensions at 14in long 5.5 in tall so its a decent size Ladybug. The body is a soft plushie but it does have a hard shell so i wouldnt recomend sleeping with it in bed.We have the red shell and black body lady bug but they now have a pink and green lady bug that you can now choose from.

Things I liked about the Twilight LadyBug
  • Night Sky projection
  • Soft glowing shell
  • 45min auto shut off  turns back on when you press the moon which is easy to feel in the dark.
  • the batteries last quite a while for us I think this set is curently going on 7 months
  • Its cute
Things I did no care for about the Twilight LadyBug
  • The Red and black coloring on the Shell scraches my daughter droped it on the tile floor and now his shell is scratched up.
  • I wish the stars rotated.
  • Priced a little High
Over all Its a great product My daughter really Enjoys it. It gives her something to watch at night while she is trying to fall asleep and it allows me to be able to check on her with out disturbing her.

I hope you enjoyed my review of the Cloudb Twilight ladybug and will continue to follow my blog for more great product reviews.
