The Oogieloves Big Balloon Adventure! FREE Printable Coloring Book & Giveaways!

The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure is a new movie that is coming to a theater near you on August 29th!  What is different about this movie is that it's interactive.... In a movie theater!!  I don't know about you but I rarely take my 3 & 4 year old to movies because they won't sit quietly for that long and often times there are scary or inappropriate parts.

This movie is ratedGGG with no villains or evil to conquer.  Just a fun time with balloons and obstacles.  What a great idea to have a G rated movie for kids that encourages them to get up and dance, sing, and cheer!  Just the fact that I didn't have to worry about keep my kids quiet or from getting up and down from their seats was LIBERATING! :):)

The people behind the Oogieloves really want to create a quality movie experience for kids and I believe they have done it!  The characters are fun and the guest stars were awesome! Watch The Oogieloves Big Balloon Adventure movie trailer.

Find it on Etsy GIVEAWAY: Mystic Orb Hand Carved Necklace! -CLOSED-

Review by Aimee Winner

One of the things I love about working with many of the people on Etsy is how "real" these people are.  They are small companies, making their art with their hands, and generally love what they do.  The family of Mystic Orb on Etsy, Jeff, Taryn and Bracken, love the earth, and make beautiful items that are quite raw, earthy, and gorgeous.


I have never owned anything hand carved....until now. I received a beautiful hand carved tree necklace for review from Jeff, part of the literal family of Mystic Orb and Wooly Moss Roots on Etsy carved one specifically for this review, and one for the winner of our Mystic Orb giveaway! How cool is that!?
They are both so beautiful in the picture.....but even more gorgeous around your neck.  When I received mine I wore it right away. I like this particular necklace a little shorter than others; this is achieved easily by moving the back of the necklace forward or back.  I must say there is something special about wearin…

Stove in a Can Review + Giveaway!

I did a post about the Stove in a Can last week and here are my pictures of us using this awesome invention!!  I was amazed with how fast it boiled water!  It took about 5 minutes!  To start it was as simple as crumbling and clean up was just as easy!  Especially in comparison to building a fire the normal way.

This is such a great gift idea!  But only after you get one for yourself.  Whether it's for peace of mind for an emergency or for camping and fun.



All you do to start it (after fully reading the instructions of course :)) is crumble up as much as you need of the fuel cell while inside the can and then light it up.  --included are waterproof matches but we used our handy lighter since we were using it at home.


Then you put the ring and the lid on and place your pot on top.  Super easy and it was boiling in minutes!


This is my son saying "cheese" if you can believe it...  When you're all done you take off the ring and smother the fire with the lid...DONE  The…

GIVEAWAY: The Gruffalo's Child DVD & Book! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

The Gruffalo's Child is just as cute as The Gruffalo!  Both have soothing, beautiful music and are narrated by an all-star cast.  My kids absolutely love this story!  My 2 year old son wants me to read him the book all of the time!  I've never seen him like this with a book...movies sure, but this book must speak to him..lol  THEN after I read it to him he wants me to read it again!  I always have to cut him off at one reading per sitting.  I love the story too but come on.

The story on the DVD is narrated by Helena Bonham Carter and it starts with the Gruffalo telling his little girl about "The Big Bad Mouse."  This show makes my kids giggle and gasp.  It's 40 minutes long which is a perfect amount of time for me to get the kitchen cleaned. :)

DVD Synopsis
In The Gruffalo's Child, the Gruffalo tells his child an extraordinary story of “The Big Bad Mouse,” warning her never to go in the woods alone because there is a terrible creature lurking there. Wai…
