Rainbow Brite Adventure Pack Review and Giveaway

You want a blast from the past?!  Do you remember Rainbow Brite and all her friends?!  Most of my friends are older than I am, so they all probably remember Rainbow Brite better than I do.  I know I had a Rainbow Brite doll, because I remember twirling her long colorful hair while watching boyish cartoons in my brother's room.  But I do remember watching the show!  In my self defense, I was only 4 or 5yrs old when the show went off the air, so my memories are very vague and tiny snap shots!  

I was given the new Rainbow Brite Adventure Pack from the wonderful MomSelect to review.  I didn't know whether the boys would watch the show or not, but they thought it was kinda neat since it was a show that Mommy watched when she was little.  I think Peanut loved watching Twink and Starlite more than the actual show.  And of course, they loved dancing to the song!  After a while, Bubbie said it was a girly show, but I enjoyed the walk down memory lane!  

Hallmark has a really neat website with games and activities and short stories!  Also, coming to a story near you, the Rainbow Brite doll that even comes with its own Twink sprite!  

If you would also like to take a walk down memory lane, leave a comment and I will send you your very own Rainbow Brite Adventure Pack which includes a short animated story, games and puzzles, the theme song and much much more!  I have 9 to give away so comment away!!!

I was given 1 cd to review and 9 to giveaway by the fabulous MomSelect!  Thank you for this opportunity!

Suave Wash Them Grow Review and Sweepstakes

I don't know about your kids, but mine LOVE body wash and special bath soaps!  Mostly because of the "character" or animal on the front!  They couldn't care less about the smell or if it cleans them or not!  Because of that, when I saw the opportunity to participate in the Suave Kids Wash Them Grow program, I jumped at the chance.

We received 4 bottles of Suave Kids Body Wash and they immediately chose their favorites!  Bubbie loved the Berry Body Wash.  To us it became the "monkey" one that smells like strawberries!   Peanut, even though he was sick, chose the Free and Gentle Body Wash, "the seal", which is a favorite for me,  because it is dye free and won't irritate the kids skin!  

Along with the 4 bottles of kids body wash, I also received some Bath Tips from Other Moms.  Here are a few:

  • Water guns are a fun accessory in the bath!  My 2 kids play together in the tub- it makes them laugh and its a great bonding time for my boys.
  • Homework, Shower then Dessert.  No Shower No Dessert.
  • To get soap out of her hair we practice the back float.
  • We're so busy that often bath time doubles as story time before we send the kids off to bed.  It kills two birds with one stone but also is fun family time at the end of a long day. 
In addition to being able to use these great products that my family already uses, I am also allowed to tell my readers about a fun contest going on called Wash Them Grow Sweepstakes.  You have the chance to win weekly prizes.  Not only do you get a chance to win, but I do too! The MomSelect blogger who drives the most traffic to the sweepstakes will win a year’s supply of Suave Kids® products and a $100 gift card to Build-A-Bear Workshop – and you’ll get to choose 10 of your readers who will each win the same fantastic prize!

A big thank you to the friends at MomSelect and Suave for allowing me to review and link to this contest!
