Animal Cafe from Reading Rainbow DVD


I recently got to review Animal Café DVD which is out now with a SRP of $6.99. This includes four episodes and books featured in this DVD are “Animal Cafe,” read by Martin Short, “The Tortoise and the Hare,” read by Gilda Radner, “Ludlow Laughs,” read by Phyllis Diller, and “Giving Thanks: A Native American Good Morning Message,” read by Nicholson Earl Billey. Airing on PBS from 1983-2009, and hosted by LeVar Burton (“Roots,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) for its entire 26-year run, the program garnered more than 200 awards, including 26 Emmys and a Peabody Award. To learning about comedy in one episode, to profiling people who have occupations in the evening and early morning in another, LeVar takes children on fun-filled learning adventures they won’t forget. 

My Opinion: This is 120 minutes so each day you can have a new nap time story read to you by an actor which is a unique approach. I really like this DVD and found it to keep kids attention the whole way through and such imagination and creations.

You can find this at Target and other retailers from PBS Distribution.

    Royal Posture



    I suffer from back, neck and circulation problems. I never realized I also slouched so much when sitting or walking not sure why I do but I realized that can’t be good for you. I recently discovered Royal Posture which energizes and aligns your spine. It helps to improve posture as poor posture can strain your neck and back. Royal Posture comes in two sizes S/M unisex for men waist size 25-36 and women size 0-16, L/XL men’s waist size 37”-58” and women size 18-38. The way you wear it is over clothes or under clothes whatever you are comfortable with you slide your shoulders in adjust the straps if needed and loop the waistband strap around your stomach trough the metal ring , fold the strap over and finally fasten securely.


    My Opinion: I got the size S/M which is the wrong size for me so I was not able to try it out accurately. I do like the idea and the way it is designed to fit to help with neck pain and back aches as I do suffer from them severely. The Royal Posture is a great price for what you get.

    blu Plus+ Xpress Kit



    My husband is a smoker but not everywhere he goes can he smoke and I honestly can’t stand the cigarette smell so this is also a great option for him to have and it is called blu Cigs if you have not heard of them you have to check them out! I got the blu Plus+ Xpress Kit this contains 2 blu Tanks, blu Plus+ Battery and a USB Charger with classic tobacco of 2.4% nicotine. With our improved e-juice formula, Classic Tobacco tanks give you a fantastic, mild and real tobacco flavor.
     I also got Limited Release Carolina Bold Tanks which comes with 3 tanks which has approximately 1650 puffs and 2.0% nicotine and the boldest tobacco flavor yet and especially for smokers who want an e-cigarette with full-flavored and now you can have an intense tobacco experience with the perfect marriage of robust flavor.


    My Husband’s Opinion: It is nice and small so you can take it anywhere and fits perfectly in a pocket or in the case alone. You can charge in the car or on a computer USB port so that is a plus as well. I found the flavors to be pleasant but found they did not last as long as they should.

      SpyX Night Mission Goggles Holiday Gift Guide 2015


      I recently got SpyX Night Mission Goggles from Mukikim and I have to say these are very interesting and let you see up to 25 feet away in the dark! High-tech night vision goggles feature twin light beams and a comfortable headset that is adjustable with battery pack, Cool flip out scope is perfect for precision daytime snooping. What could be more fun? SpyX surveillance, communication and concealment equipment is the next generation of cool spy toys. Taking design cues from cutting edge technology and real field equipment, SpyX products are designed with a rough, tough look that every budding spy will appreciate.

      My Opinion: I think anyone who loves to be a detective or outside at night might enjoy these for seeing wildlife or spying on someone. I always thought being a spy would be neat but never pursued it. I know two people in my family who may also enjoy these my dad and nephew. I found the Spy X Night Mission Goggles to work well and I was able to see from a far away distance and adjusted large enough to fit on my head.
      To learn more visit http://www.mukikim.com/spyx.html

      Christmas is right around the corner so buy some for your son or a friend who enjoys this type of thing maybe even a hunter.

      Hammermill Laser Print Paper from Shoplet



      We all make copies rather you are at home office or work out of the home at an office. I was recently sent a ream of Hammermill Laser Print which is 28 pounds, 500 sheets of paper and 81/2 by 11 with 98% brightness. Super-smooth surface produces amazingly sharp images even up to 2400 dpi. Radiant white shade for superior image contrast will ensure that your presentations and proposals make a great impression with a 99.99% JAM-FREE Guarantee, Acid-free for archival quality. This product was made from wood that came from a certified managed forest.

      My Opinion: I print a lot of coupons, recipes and resumes as needed and here are my findings I found this paper to be brighter and thicker then my old copy paper with more sheets then my old ream I buy with twice the cost. I had no jams happen to me either but I normally do not one sided anyways.

      You can also find Cleaning Supplies, Medical Supplies and Office Furniture to make an office look nice.

      Cafe Wall Caddy



      I am a coffee/ hot chocolate drinking and I own a Kuerig and next to my Keurig I have all my boxes of drinks for it but it is crowding up the counter space I need to find another type of solution. I recently discovered Café Wall Caddy for Beratak Industries. This Café Wall Caddy stores your K-Cup coffee pods on the wall, right next to your coffee maker. No more trying to figure out how to squeeze one more things onto your already over-crowded counters. With no more fumbling around to find the flavor you want. They’re all right there, displayed neatly on your wall, right next to your single-serve coffee maker. This Café Wall Caddy comes in two sizes Small which holds 12 or Large which holds 22.

      My Opinion: I got the color white and size Small which holds the 12 but it has expandable and attachable to make it larger on the top and bottom o hold 22. This is applied around your electric outlet which is nice to make it more like a work of art instead of looking boring. Again easy to install, made in the USA and no wall damage. I really like this idea and concept.

      Power Perch from Beratek Industries


      If you are like me your bathroom sink is crowded with clutter everywhere and have a hard time finding one thing every morning such as the nail clippers as it is hiding under something on the counter or in the basket. I am honestly tired of so much clutter in my bathroom. I recently discovered Power Perch from Beratek Industries and this is an ingenious idea as you can add a shelf to any outlet rather it is in the bathroom for a razor to go on, a smart phone, toothbrushes and more. It does not damage any walls, easy to install, Made in the USA and very convenient. It comes in the color white but you can ask them via email what other colors they may have.

      My Opinion: So I turned off the electricity to the room to add my Power Perch and had a hard time deciding where to put it as I have a clutter bathroom sink but also so many electronic devices to plug in I was unsure where to put it so I opted for the bathroom for now. It fits snug and I found it very easy to install. I got the white which seemed bright to me so I like the idea about other colors as I would like a cream, tan or a wood looking option. It also easily sits a 6 inch kindle on the shelf if you are wondering about size.

      RingStix Lite



      I recently discovered a new game for the family it is called Ring Stix it is an outdoor game which two players can play. How it works you hold a Ring Stix in each hand so you can visibly see Ring Stix written. You then pull your hands apart when you shoot and parallel to shoot to the other player the last step is you catch it with one or both your stix. This game is great for hand and eye coordination and exercise outdoors. I got the RingStix Lite which comes with 4 Stix (Orange, Green, Blue, and Purple), 1 Red Ring,  which you can shoot up to 30 yards, Age 6+, Full Set for two Players.


      My Opinion: These look like swords to me as they are curved at one side and come in great bright colors. I did find these easy to use after practicing for a bit and so much fun I was able to get my exercise I need and don’t but also if I wanted to use these in the water they float so I love it.
      To learn more visit http://www.ringstix.com
      They also have RingStix Standard, Carrying bag and more.

      Dark Was the Night Out 9/1/15


      Coming out on DVD September 1, 2015 from RLJ Entertainment and Image Entertainment is Dark Was the Night which is directed by Jack Heller and stars Kevin Durand (The Strain), Lucas Haas (Solarbabies) Bianca Kajlich (Rules of Engagement TV Series), and Nick Damici (Stake Land).
      Maiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent, hard-working people but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding the isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires. Sheriff Paul Shields and his deputy struggle to confront their own personal demons while facing down a new breed of raw terror that is possibly older then humanity itself and much, much hungrier.

      My Opinion: I was sitting on the couch watching this movie and cuddling up to my yorkie Fiona as I was so tense watching this wondering what was going to happen and all the twist and turns this movie had had my heart beating very fast. I really enjoyed this movie but the ending was unexpected. This movie runs 98 minutes long.
      There are also special features included with this DVD Behind the Scenes: A Trip to Madien Woods and Q&A with the cast of Dark Was the Night.

      Kitchenne Groovy Pop Molds



      It has been hot and humid here what we call the dog days of Summer which I would gladly take over the cold and winter that is coming sooner then I want it to .  I eat a lot of ice cream during these hot days and they can make me gain weight so I am think Popsicle or frozen yogurt may be better alternative. I recently found Kitchenne Groovy Pop Molds which they sent me to review on my blog.  This Set Contains 6 Individual Ice Pop Molds (2 Yellow, 2 Pink, 2 Green) Plus Yellow Base Tray to Keep Molds Upright In the Freezer. So this will make it easy to fill, easy to freeze and easy to slide out when frozen. Each mold has a built in drip guard to keep hands and clothes free from messy melting. The ice pop molds are also BPA Free, Dishwasher Safe and Made from Polypropylene Plastic.


      My Opinion: I really like how I can make a healthy pop at home as I can add organic ingredients or less sugar then buying them at the store. The pops sit perfectly fine in the holder and I love the bright colors.
