Holiday: Get in the Spirit with DohVinci #HGG14

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received for this post. A product was provided for my review.

DohVinci is the newest craze from Hasbro. From the makers of play-doh, DohVinci is a 3-d design kit for kids.


I received the DohVinci Deluxe Styler tool to share with my kids. The deluxe styler tool come with 4 different design tp, to help you create the perfect design. Design tips include a star, heart, flower, and butterfly. Plus with the styler tool you get 3 deco pop colors.

My kids have been wanting DohVinci since I showed them pictures rom Toy Fair. They love Play-doh, but it’s to messy and they rarely ever get to play with it.
DohVinci is Play-doh made easy, as it is in a tube. It comes out through the slyer gun for easy designs, and litte clean up. The DohVinci compound will dry overnight, and you should be able to hang your picture on the wall. My daughter just loves it.



Some downsides to DohVinci: The Deco Pop tubes are very small, and my kids went through them in less than a hour. We also noticed that the designs we made started to crumble after a week, not to bad though.

Skippy Peanut Butter On Waffles #HormelFamily

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

Skippy peanut butter is now a part of the Hormel brand, and are coming out with new options like the Chocolate peanut butter. My daughter loves it on a peanut butter and jelly. Her favorite food to put it on is Waffles. Every morning for the past week, she has been eating waffles with chocolate peanut butter.




I am going through a jar of peanut butter a week, but I just can’t help the smile it brings to her face. Plus the biggest upside is she is actually eating (she is very picky).

What is your favorite way to use peanut butter?

Every time we go to Best Buy we have to stop and look at the TV’s my kids are fascinated with them. The bigger the better and now even thinner is better. They would stay there all day watching these TV’s light up if they could.

The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors.

The LG OLED TV offers:

  • Infante contrast ratio and stunning color, gives a more natural up close viewing.
  • 4 color pixel technology enhances color and technology.
    Super thin design

    Your first kiss. A baby’s first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG’s latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you’ve ever seen.

    Having great theater technology in a TV, is big in my house as we have bad eyesight and like to sit away from the TV. So having great picture quality is everything we look for.
    I can only imagine getting to watch awesome movies on the LG OLED, it would be a movie theater experience in my own living room.

    You can get the LF OLED TV at Best Buy’s everyday price of $3,499.99 ($500 savings). Find out more here.


    Twitter Party:

    Best Buy is hosting a LG OLED Twitter party on December 4th at 7PM CST. Join in the fun for a chance to win Best Buy gift cards, and other great prizes. Use the #HintingSeason with your wish lists from Best Buy.

    We attended the KidzVuz Holiday party yesterday and it was so much fun. This was out 3rd KidzVuz event.

    There wasn’t as many toy brands as in the past but that didn’t mean my kids didn’t take full advantage of everything else they were showcasing.


    16 Handles Fro-yo. My kids loved them, and all the topping they were able to add.


    HP Stream computers and Tablets. These Computers and tablets are perfect for little hands. It’s already on my daughters wish list.


    Hot Chocolate with Keurig

    We got to spin a Wheel with Stop and shop and win prizes. Plus lots of Coupons. (I love Stop and Shop, only place I shop for groceries)

    We didn’t get to see all the brands, and of course my camera died before I could get all the pictures I wanted. But I can’t wait to hear more from the brands, and new products.

    Have your kids signed up for KidzVuz and shared their opinions yet?

    Holiday: My Little Pony Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks Movie

    Disclosure: no formal compensation was received for this post. A product was provided. All opinions are 100% my own.


    The girls of Canterlot High are back, and this time they’re rocking guitars! In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Canterlot High (CHS) is hosting a musical showcase, and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. But when The Dazzlings, a new girl group, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands, tensions mount between the competing musical acts. A now-reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that The Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister than just being named Best Band at Canterlot High. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to restore harmony to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.

    ** My daughter is the biggest My Little Pony fan and she was super excited to hear about the new Rainbow Rocks movie and toys. So many new characters have been added, which means new friends and adventures. You still get to see the ponies though as the Equestria Girls call on Princess Twilight Sparkle to help them. My daughter keeps telling me this movie is much better than the first one and wants to watch it everyday.

    My Little Pony Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks is now on dvd and blu-ray.

    Running time:70 minutes


    Will you be picking up this movie for your My Little Pony fan?
