REVIEW: Ruckus Mobile Media Apps- fun for kids!


Looking for some fun iPhone apps?  I was able to try out a few from Ruckus Mobile Media and they are really great original apps for kids!  Your able to enter into the stories by reading, seeing, tilting, touching and turning with these creative apps.  Whether you want to hear the stories by celebrities or Grandpa, some give you the chance to do both. :)  These are the ones I tried:


Andrew Answers is a fun story about a boy and his journey to the Oval Office.  As Andrew goes to different places there are fun mazes to do!  You just move your phone around to get him where he needs to go.  (I kept trying to move him with my finger :)  This is fun for both of my young kids as a narrator tells the story.


Velveteen Rabbit is another great story that is nice to have at your fingertips.
There are 3 ways to use it.  You can listen to Meryl Streep read it, record a voice reading the story (love this feature!), or you can read it.  I love these three options!
The same options are available for Johnny Appleseed and John Henry.  All great stories that are familiar, and are good ones to share with our kids.


Present for Milo is entertaining for my 18 month old.  It's not only a cute story, but you can also touch the different pictures in the story and they move or make a sound.  Kind of like a fancy pop up book. :)  My son LOVES this!  All apps are $3.99 and you can preview the featured apps.  They have lots of other stories to check out.  The apps work on the iPad, iPhone, Droid, and other mobile media platforms.

You can follow Ruckus Media Group on Facebook and Twitter.  I was given the above apps to review.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
