Review: TheRealToothFairies.com

Written on November 15, 2010 by Kevin.

Does your daughter know who their real tooth fairy is? Kids have always known that when they lose a tooth, the tooth fairy comes to collect and offer up some money. No one has really known much about this mysterious tooth fairy but TheRealToothFairies.com is changing all of that. In fact, did you know that there is more than one tooth fairy? TheRealToothFairies.com has all of the scoop.

TheRealToothFairies.com was offered to us for review recently and we have spent the past couple of weeks checking it out. You begin the journey in the fairy Royal Castle Towers where you and your child (daughter) take a moment to create a login and customize an avatar. While the customization is thin, it gets the job done. The next step is to take the Royal Quiz which helps match her to their own personal tooth fairy.

A large focus for the site is the Kindness missions which you participate in activities such as giving a flower away, caring for a pet or helping wash the dishes. You earn tickets, ribbons and charms as you record each kindness done. Tickets can be turned in for online rewards and decorations for their personalized space. A kindness kit can be purchased which includes things such as ribbons, charm bracelet, kindness charms and two fairy gift bags. This would work great as an upcoming holiday gift.

TheRealToothFairies.com offers a series of Tooth Fairy related story books which we had fun reading to Kaitlyn. She enjoyed having us read them to her a few times over. These books retail for $19.99 on their website.

Did your daughter know that the real tooth fairies were in a band and had their own music studio? They currently offer 8 magical songs (99 cents per) for your daughter to dance and sing to. You can also check out their music videos, including lyrics, for free. Kaitlyn is a huge fan of catchy music and this definitely was a hit for her. The music videos kept her focused.

Overall, we all were really pleased with what TheRealToothFairies has to offer. It really is the total package when it comes to the tooth fairy. It is a great, safe website for children to go and have tons of fun. While this website is still in its infancy, it provides a lot of entertainment and with its expansion to hands on books and kindness kits, it really gives your daughter something to hold on to. Their kindness missions and magic letters really give your girl something to look forward to and believe in. If I had been searching the Internet and come across this website, it would have definitely peaked my interest. Sure, the VIP account does require a fee but even if you are not interested in that type of thing, the freebies are plenty. This site is definitely geared towards little girls but poking around and you will see mention of a Boys website as well. Unfortunately it is not up at this time. I am certain it will have as many great things as this one does.

TheRealToothFairies has offered a great prize pack valued at $75 which includes all the necessities to get a jump start in the magic world known as TheRealToothFairies.com. To enter, head over to TheRealToothFairies.com and let us know which Fairy your daughter got paired up with. I will close the giveaway at the end of Friday the 19th. Good luck!

The winner chosen randomly was #13, Tina68. Congratulations! I hope your daughter enjoys the package.

Review: Clic-it Diaper Bag System

Written on November 14, 2010 by Kevin.

This diaper bag is great!

My wife is not one to get too excited about any of the items that we receive to review (thats mine and the kids job) but this one definitely changed her. Welcome the Clic-it smart diaper bag system, a way for all mothers (and fathers) to better organize their diaper bags. Instead of having one bag with everything thrown in, you get to choose what parts of the system you want to use on that given day. The Clic-it system allows you to put your accessories exactly where you want them which allows you to always find what you are looking for. The days of looking for a loose pacifier in the bottom of the bag are gone. Here is how it works...

You purchase the messenger style diaper bag and then each accessory separately depending on what your needs are. Their accessories include a bottle holder, insulated tote, pacifier holder, diaper & wipes case, organizer pouch, gadget case, key ring and even a changing kit. Each of these items securely clip onto the diaper bag in whichever position you feel best with. How great is it that you don't have to waste valuable space in a bag with something like a bottle holder that will never be used?

What made my wife so excited about this was her discovery that it attached perfectly to our double wide stroller. She can securely keep it where she needs it and be able to insulate Kaitlyn's Epipen so that it doesn't become unusable. Gone are the days where we had to reach down under the stroller to grab small stuff like water bottles, Epipen or keys.

Without a doubt this has to be one of the best diaper bags currently on the market. They call it a diaper bag system and that couldn't be more spot on. It really does provide something for everyone and maybe best of all, its not super feminine. Dads won't have to be looking over their shoulder when they wear this one.

Thanks Team Mom and Clic-It for providing this review opportunity. You definitely made a big fan out of both of us.

Clic-It is kicking off their "Gearing Up for Baby" contest from November 15 - December 24. Log onto www.clicitbag.com for details on how to enter for a chance to win a prize pack including a new Clic-It diaper bag and accessory assortment (retail value: $117.00).
