 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Book
With a simple shake or tap, the readers help Anna and Elsa put Olaf together again! In this truly hands-on interactive picture book, the readers play a part in the storytelling. Through instructional text, children learn numbers and directions such as up, down, left, right, clockwise, and counterclockwise. Toddlers will enjoy the feeling of creating the story and the element of magic and wonder.




My Take on the Book
If you have a young child who enjoyed watching the movie FROZEN, I would encourage you to take a look at this book. The author has written a read aloud story that is also a learning tool for your child.

The interactive part requires your child to shake, tap, count, and learn directions such as up, down, left, right, clockwise, and counterclockwise. 

This reading experience will produce so much fun , some learning, and laughter too. I will guess you will read this story often.

Book Review - Henry Hugglemonster Henry Loves Beckett

Henry Hugglemonster Henry Loves Beckett

 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Book
Henry and his big sister, Summer, team up to throw their monsterdog, Beckett, the most roarsome birthday party ever! But something strange is happening: all of the pets' noisy toys are disappearing. When Henry investigates the mystery, he finds a fuzzlebird who wants peace and quiet for her newborn baby. Luckily, Hugglemonsters always do the right thing, and Henry finds a solution to make his furred, feathered, and monster friends happy, and still have the best pet party ever!




My Take on the Book
Henry has a pet named Beckett. Beckett is celebrating his birthday with a party. Henry and his friends play games, sing songs, and are generally making a lot of noise. Ivor , Henry's little brother hates loud noises and so does baby Fuzzlebird.

You and your child will enjoy watching mother Fuzzlebird as she tries to keep the noise lowered for her baby.

Henry is sensitive to the noise because it hurts the babies and thus he changes the party for them. What a great lesson to teach our children. 

We all need to take into consideration other people's sensitivities and respect their rights too.
The book includes over 60 stickers, beautifully illustrated pages, and sentence structure appropriate for young children. 

This story could certainly open up an avenue for a discussion along the theme.

 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg


About Sturdi
Sturdi Products® Inc. has been an innovator in the pet product industry for over 20 years, designing a full complement of functional yet stylish accessories and carriers that save owners time and money while bringing them peace of mind. The holidays can be a stressful time for pets as they travel to unknown destinations and are surrounded by a cast of nice--but sometimes surprising--new friends. With the ingenious pet travel and transportation solutions from Sturdi Products® Inc., owners can ensure an easy and fun transition to new situations for their dogs, cats, and other pets.

 
From airplanes to automobiles the SturdiBag™ Pet Carrier has everything folks need for a smooth and worry free journey with their best pal in tow. This all-encompassing travel carrier features their patented and award-winning flex-height design that allows the bag to gently contract inward for easy maneuverability and storage when not in use. Made with a durable 600 Denier Polyester and featuring mesh windows with retractable privacy flaps, each bag is built to last while providing the utmost comfort and stability for its occupants.

Once pet owners have arrived at their destination, the SturdiBag™ Pet Carrier can continue to lend them a helping hand. Boasting a feather light


construction and adjustable four-point padded shoulder strap and handgrip, this bag allows pet owners to carry demurely sized cats and dogs with ease. When the festivities get into full swing, it gives wary pets a safe and sheltered spot to retreat to out of the limelight, complete with a cozy interior fleece bed.

Their lines of innovative travel, emergency preparedness, and pet show exhibition products are constantly evolving to ensure that pets and their owners have the safest solutions right at their fingertips.

My Take on the Sturdi Pet Carrier
So often the pet carriers that I have had in the past have always been hard sided and you can tell, not very comfortable for the pets themselves. We try and pad them the best that we can, but it does not always work. What is great about these carriers is that they are built for comfort. The first words out of my mouth when I saw this, was kitty condo! As you can see from the pictures above my youngest cat already loves this and sees this as her new domain. I like that because this means that she will not be as frightened to be in this as she sometimes is in the carrier we currently have, especially if we keep it out so she can use it when she wishes. All-in-all, I can say that I am very impressed with the overall design of this and can tell that it will last for a long time too. If you have a pet, I would definitely recommend this to you as it is different than others I have seen and is truly made with comfort and security in mind.

BudStraps . . . the power to move, the key to change #dadchat


 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg


About Budstraps
Say goodbye to distracting tangled cords and earbuds that won’t stay put. Get fuss-free movement in your day-to-day world with Budstraps—the innovative new way to keep earbuds (and frustration) in place.

In a twist from typical Kickstarter videos their explanation of BudStraps is entirely visual. This 90 second video has less than 15 seconds of product talk, but not a single word explains what the product does. The pop video makes it impossible to walk away without a perfect understanding of what BudStraps does.

BudStraps is an amazing new tool which allows you to simply clip your earbuds around your neck and go. A lightweight neoprene strap that sits comfortably on the back of the neck, Budstraps are ideal for runners, bikers and drivers that need one ear open for optimum safety, but don’t want the hassle of a dangling bud or tangled cord. Simply clip those favorite earbuds into the strap and instantly simplify any run, ride, walk, workout or gaming session. With Budstraps, you’re free to clip, go and forget about those buds. If a bud falls out, it’s kept close and easily retrievable rather than falling the full length of the cord and often-times taking its companion earbud with it. Budstraps are designed to empower, providing confidence and uninterrupted focus on what’s important…a distraction-free run, ride or workout!



Made of super soft nylon-coated neoprene, Budstraps wash easily with soap and water and come in a variety of colors to suit any taste or mood. Plus, because Budstraps make earbuds so easily accessible and safer to use, the need for tucking cords into shirts and bras is gone, and the days of popped earbuds hitting the dirty ground are a thing of the past.


A former builder of Hollywood props, sets and models, Budstraps creator Bill Woodward is no stranger to great design. With inspiration for creating Budstraps stemming out of his own struggles with unruly earphone cords, Bill set out to solve three basic needs: eliminate tangles, prevent the accidental yanking out of earbuds, and the ability to keep earbuds close if they are removed temporarily. Now, with the valuable input and guidance of Bill’s friend, Jared Green, BudStraps has become a remarkable and sought after new product that accomplishes those original needs and more.

Support Earbuds, Support Convenience, Support Safety! This ingenious tool launches on Kickstarter.com this Monday, November 17, and now is your chance to get in on the action. Those who help back BudStraps will get the product before anyone else, and at a special price. The funding BudStraps receives will go to purchase an injection mold for the BudStraps clips and to help design a lighter sweat-resistant neck band.

Even musicians are getting behind BudStraps! Rising Pop-Star, Noel Bean, shares her support through the use of her song “Let’s Go” in BudStraps’ Kickstarter video. Check out the video and show your support at Budstraps.com/Kickstarter and check out the music of Noel Bean at www.beanmusic.com!

My Take on the Budstraps
These straps are SUPER soft and easily connect to your ear buds to make working out that much easier. So often when I have worked out I have fought with my ear buds to keep them in and around my neck, especially when doing something that requires more movement - no more. With BudStraps you simply connect them and you are off. Since starting to use these I have had no problems with losing my ear buds and instead they stay where they are supposed to (on my neck), and even if they do pop out, they are not going far due to the strap itself. This was a great product that is long overdue!
