Spintales Duvet


I was lucky enough to be chosen to host a #Spintales Party through #Tryazon, and everyone who attended had a ton of fun! The following picture was taken at the beginning, before all of my guests came, but you get the idea!!




Have you ever heard of Tilt Textiles? Tilt Textiles is the creator of Spintales, and here is a bit of background on them:

TILT Textiles, Inc (www.tilttextiles.com) is a smart home textile company, focused on seamlessly integrating technology into textiles to create delightful and meaningful experiences for kids and families. SpinTales was the first brand launched by TILT for Holiday 2016. There are currently two SpinTales products available and each product comes with 3 FREE stories! 



I got chosen to review the Spintales Duvet, which also comes with the most gorgeous pillow sham. This is what the blurb about it is on Tryazon:

You can experience classic fairytales in a new way on this Enchanted Duvet. Everyone’s favorite, Little Red, is one of the stories included. Help Little Red find her way to Grandma’s house on the other side of the forest. Beware of the wolf...he likes cookies and he’s a little bit ticklish! You’ll soon discover if this wolf is really all that bad. The second story is about Jack, a curious boy who loves magic. Join him on an adventure up the beanstalk, all the way to the sky and back. And if you love to build, you will love the third story about the three pigs. Help the pigs build their homes and huff and puff along with the wolf who tries to blow their houses down.





The kids at the party definitely had favorite parts... my girls loved building the house with the pigs from 3 Little Pigs, and my youngest thought it was hilarious that the Wolf was ticklish! Her giggle was adorable...


I can honestly tell you that even the adults who came to our party had fun using it! It definitely seems futuristic, is super interactive, and a fun way to learn and play! I cannot wait to see what Spintales come up with next!

EQtainment - The Q Wunder Movement Party

I was so happy to be chosen to host the #EQtainment - The Q Wunder Movement Party through Tryazon! I knew that introducing these products to my younger children who are 3 and 6 was going to be wonderful for our family, and I couldn't be happier with the results.



About The Q Wunder Movement Party, from Tryazon.com: "Parents, did you know that social and emotional skills, not academics, have been found to be a better indicator of a child’s future success in their career, relationships, health, and happiness? If not, it’s time to join a movement!

Thanks to Sofia Dickens, a Harvard alumna, mother of 3, and Founder of EQtainment, helping your child learn self control, problem solving, manners, empathy, resilience, leadership and social skills has never been more simple and fun. Through a specially developed app, kids show, games, story books, and more, you can help them on their way to school readiness and the development of these crucial like skills. Your house party guests will be the first to preview/download the new Q Wunder app and kids show, featuring celebrity guests and the animated monkey "Q"."



So, are you having issues with your children learning manners, or worried they are not clever enough at problem solving? Or are you just looking to have fun with your children, while learning life lessons as well? If any of that applies to you, you should definitely check out Q!

Sterno S'mores Maker

This Sterno S'mores Maker made making S'mores more organized, more fun, and MUCH easier to clean up! This container holds marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate separately, and I got to get it all organized before the kids even saw it. It held enough for all of the kids to make one S'more, then I quickly refilled for them to make more.






The best thing about this is the fire can in the middle that was super easy to light, and lasted at least 45 minutes. So much less worry than a bonfire! I wasn't scared even once that my kid was going to fall in while trying to roast the perfect marshmallow!

Overall, this Sterno S'mores Maker makes making S'mores easier, more organized, and much safer, plus it can be used in ANY environment :)

Thanks to Tryazon, I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions stated are 100% my own.

THE Fun Yard Game.. Mölkky!

From the Tryazon Site: Mölkky is an updated version of an old Scandinavian "throwing game" called Kyykkä that has been around for hundreds of years. Without age or fitness restrictions, and suitable to most outdoor spaces, Molkky is an easy, go-to game on any day. All over the world, Mölkky is enjoyed for its casual, easy game play, as well as in serious, top tournaments and championship competitions. 

From my own experience: Mölkky went from being something I've never heard about, to being THE game that my family and friends play at gatherings.. no joke! After the first round of the game, we just couldn't get enough. 



Our get togethers are all about family and fun, and this game is perfect for that! It can be a fast paced game where the adults get very competitive, or a leisurely game including kids and friends of all ages! 



The only 'rule' of this game when we play is that you cannot go over 50 points, because if you do, you have to start back at 25! I can honestly say that this is the most fun yard game that my family has played. And, we have played a lot of yard games like Hillbilly Golf, Yard Bowling, Bean Bag Toss, and Bocce Ball. 

Not only is this game fun and interactive, the game itself is rugged and durable, and will last a lifetime! It's made of wood and thick twine.. so believe me when I say, it will last! So get your game of Molkky and prepare to have a blast!

#Tryazon Spring Cleaning Party with #FullCircle Products!

Full Circle is an Eco-Friendly cleaning brand that makes stylish and kid safe products that I personally think should be in every home across America!


The following are sentences from the Tryazon page that really got me interested in the Full Circle brand: --"Every product is carefully forged by using safe, plant-based materials, and by paying close attention to every detail of the cleaning task at hand.They are proud members of the BCORP family and aspire to make the world a better place through their cleaning products. "


After hosting my #Tryazon Spring Cleaning Party, I threw out every cleaning product in my home, and have replaced them with the all natural, kid safe recipes I made in my own kitchen. Thankfully Full Circle sent me a little recipe booklet with kid safe, eco-friendly recipes for every cleaning product I will ever need! Not only were these recipes quick and easy, they are also super inexpensive! Our cleaning products now consist of recipes made with lemons, baking soda, vinegar, ect. No longer do I have to open the windows when cleaning, because I'm scared of the fumes my children might breath in. I no longer send them to their room until the floor dries after mopping it because I'm scared of the chemicals that will stick to the bottom of their feet and absorb into their little bodies. No, now I can let them help me, and they LOVE it! 


Besides being kid safe, their products LOOK neat! Wood and bright colors, neat shapes.. they have it all! My favorite product so far is the bottle brush. It is super sturdy, and after using it, it stands by itself to air dry. I don't have to worry about laying it down on a towel to dry like my old plastic one, that always seemed to have a funky smell that I couldn't get rid of. Plus, the brush itself is so thick and durable, and cleans like a champ!

My guests were just as impressed and excited about Full Circle products as I am, and we can't wait to order more!

Programming FUN with Ozobot!

So, check out how easy it is these days to learn about programming thanks to these little guys called Ozobots! I was one of the lucky few chosen to host a Tryazon Party featuring Ozobot and my 12 year old son and his friends had a blast learning!

video

As you can see, it is as easy as 1-2-3! Each Ozobot comes with a maze and a skin, which is a cute little cover, and it's own carrying case. Each also includes a ton of information, the sites where you can go to learn about your Ozobot, the app names you can download, and even instructions on how to keep him clean!

We learned a lot about programming and code, color language, and codes... Static Codes and Flash Codes. It was amazing to watch our Ozobot  read a color sequence and then execute the Ozocode demand!! That is what he was doing in the video... he had written a code, then holding the Ozobot on the screen so he could read it, and then.... watch him execute it!!!

video

I forsee the boys and girls playing with Ozobot from a long time to come... and Congrats to Brock for winning his own Ozobot!!!

Thank you Tryazon for introducing us to another amazing prodct!!
