I recently received a set of Bumkins Bibs from BetterClothDiapers.com.
They are wonderful! They fit our granddaughter perfectly, and have come in handy when doing arts and crafts. Not a drop of paint on her pretty clothes! The bibs also wash up nice, unlike other bibs we have purchased. They look great and are made of the highest quality. Which makes them worth the cost.

SoapTime Products Review & Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.


Our little one is about to start preschool next month. One thing I remember about our older daughter starting school is the spread of cold and flu germs. The best way to battle the spread of these germs is by teaching kids to wash their hands properly. With the help of SoapTime® we’ve been able to do just that while also keeping it fun.

SoapTime® is a patented system that provides a multi-media “Edutainment” experience that makes wash time FUN! Children are encouraged to wash their hands while learning proper wash time (:20 seconds). It’s great for children of all ages, especially between 2 ½ & 7 when they are initiating independent hand washing & need encouragement to get to the sink. They are engaged by lights, musical & educational content while learning Healthy Habits for Life!

The full Soap Time set- 3 uniquely Themed Bottles: ABC, Earth, and Elephant, each recognized by the SmartBase®. All bottles have educational themes narrated by our very own, Professor Goodhabits. The music was written, produced, & recorded by Brian Vander Ark, of the Verve Pipe. ABC’s theme is language, Earth’s theme is nature, and Elephant’s theme is wild kingdom.

SoapTime soap dispensers look adorable in our bathroom. The music and lights are a great way to encourage our four year old to take her time while washing her hands. So much fun that SoapTime has fast become a favorite by all kids visiting our house.

SoapTime is currently available at select Bed, Bath and Beyond retailers. Go here to see if there is a location near you that currently carries SoapTime. They will soon be available nationwide!

You also have the chance to win a full set of 3 SoapTime products here on my blog! To be entered simply leave a comment below saying why you’d like to win. One winner will be chosen and contacted by email on September 1, 2011.

Jake and the Never Land Pirates, DVD & Music Soundtrack

A new soundtrack and DVD inspired by Disney Junior’s #1 series Jake and the Never Land Pirates, are planned to set sail this September with Walt Disney Records’ album release of eighteen hook-filled songs from the series on September 20 and The Walt Disney Studios “Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away!” DVD release featuring seven episodes from the series on September 27.

Jake and the Never Land Pirates is cable’s #1 series among Boys 2-5 and is on track to be Disney Channel’s #1 preschool series ever. It is the most co-viewed series among all Disney Junior and Nickelodeon series, with 47% of Moms watching with their preschooler. A music-filled interactive treasure hunt, the series introduces a crew of kid pirates – leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby – and follows their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Smee, from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.” Every episode features the animated Sharky and Bones characters as they pop up throughout to perform original pirate ditties, and each episode concludes with a live action music video featuring The Never Land Pirate Band.

Written and performed by Loren Hoskins and Kevin Hendrickson, a.k.a. Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band, the album features 18 swashbuckling tracks sure to thrill any young pirate. Also included are downloadable activities and games to plan the perfect pirate party, a Sing-Along version of the show’s theme song and a bonus track from a future episode. The deluxe edition includes a pirate bandana. The album arrives at stores and online retailers September 20.

The album features a variety of songs that kids and parents can enjoy together. Songs include the kooky, comical “Hot Lava,” “Aw Coconuts,” “Pirate Password,” and the arrrghhh-rated “Talk Like a Pirate.” Some songs refer to popular characters in the show, such as “What’s Cookin’ Smee,” “Captain Hook (Is A Cranky Crook),” “Tick Tock Croc” and “Bucky’s Shanty.” Others capture the island spirit of Never Land, such as “Castaway on Pirate Island,” “Shipwreck Shuffle” and “Never Sky,” as well as the “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” theme song. All songs can be heard in episodes of the show.

Portland, Oregon-based Hoskins and Hendrickson have been creating pirate rock music for kids of all ages for more than a decade. The duo produced four previous children’s albums and even led their own pirate band. The pirate rockers also provide the musical score for “Jake and the Never Land Pirates.”

The Jake and the Never Land Pirates soundtrack will be available wherever music is sold on September 20. For more information on Walt Disney Records’ releases, please visit www.Disney.com/music , become a fan at www.Facebook.com/disneymusic and follow at www.Twitter.com/disneymusic .

What To Expect The Second Year Book Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

Heidi Murkoff’s What to Expect has delivered again. Announcing the arrival of a brand-new member of the What to Expect family:
What to Expect the Second Year. The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 9.7 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums). Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.

Heidi Murkoff, author of “What to Expect” also has an informative What to Expect Preganancy and Parenting website that offers useful tips on preconception, pregnancy, your baby’s first years and through the toddler stage. This site includes a helpful community message board where new and expectant mothers can share ideas and tips.

Five Dollar Shake is proud to have partnered with WhattoExpect.com to help spread the word of this amazing and helpful website.

I also have a couple of copies of What To Expect The Second Year to share with my readers!

It’s A Pillow, It’s A Pet, It’s A Pillow Pet Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed.

“Since 2003, Pillow Pets have been bringing smiles to the faces of all ages. The concept for the snuggly companions was the brainchild of a San Diego-based mother of two, who had grown tired of picking up stuffed animals strewn across her children’s rooms. What began with the simple goal of transforming a simple stuffed animal into a functional item for children has grown into an amazing jungle of popular retail and wholesale products.”
Pillow Pets are now available in a variety of fun pets, jungle animals, farm critters, even sea creatures – 20+ different animals to choose from. Pillow Pets are great for nap time, great for bed time and just a lot of fun during playtime. Easy to take on the road so your child can enjoy them in the car or even on a plane. Pillow Pets are machine washable and very durable so they will last through plenty of play and even through messes and spills.”

Pillow Pets have become a huge deal in our house! Our three year old granddaughter hasn’t gone a day in the past year with out loving her Purple Fluffy Bunny, or napping with her Patriotic Pup. Now she takes her newest love, Magical Unicorn (pictured below) with her almost every where she goes.
When it comes to loving Pillow Pets – she is so not alone. Pillow Pets are super cute, really soft and comfy to lay on. Making it easy for kids of all ages to love!

Safety 1st Complete Air Car Seat, Review & Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered.

With another Mother’s Day just behind us I can’t help but think of all the nice gifts we receive as mom’s. But no jewelry, flowers or trips to the spa could be more of a gift then knowing our children are safe. That is why when I had the opportunity to review a Safety 1st Complete Air Convertible Car Seat, I took it very seriously. This is not a product I am willing to just kick out a fast review on. I have to feel 100% behind some thing so important. That is why I used the Safety 1st Complete Air Convertible Car Seat for over two months before attempting to write this review.

Safety 1st brings revolutionary Air Protect™ Side Impact Technology to your family with the Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat. As a convertible car seat, the Complete Air™ will keep your child protected through two separate stages: from 5-40 pounds as a rear-facing infant car seat and from 22-50 pounds as a forward-facing toddler car seat. With up-front harness adjustment and one click LATCH system, you’ll appreciate the convenience features offered by the Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat just as much as the added safety.

The Safety 1st Air Protect Car Seat was very easy to install and along with top of the line safety features is also holding up when it comes to durability, comfort, and longevity. Made of the highest quality, this is an outstanding car seat. At first I was a bit concerned of our little one feeling too restricted by the air filled side cushions surrounding her head but that has not been the case at all. Becca seems to be very comfortable and enjoys riding in this car seat. Which is a great feeling for us. It’s such a comfort knowing this car seat will keep her safe until she reaches 50 pounds.

Safety 1st is also on top of keeping infants safe when it comes to car seats. Their new OnBoard 35 Air Protect Infant Car Seat brings revolutionary protection to infants all the way from a tiny 4 to a full 35 pounds.

# Featuring Air Protect™ revolutionary side impact technology
# Immediately reduces side impact forces through the precise release of air
# Extended use from a tiny 4 to a full 35 pounds
# 17% more leg room than most infant car seats
# Customizable insert and low harness slots make the seat ideal for preemies and adjustable for growing babies
# Carry Curve™ Handle features ergonomic design
# Base Belt Lock easily secures your vehicle seat belt during installation
# One Click LATCH installation system
# Styles: Silver Leaf (Black/Gray), Rio Grande (Green/Brown), Ella (Pink/Gray), McKenna (Black/Gray)
# MSRP: $179.99 at Babies”R”Us and Target

The generous people at Safety 1st have given me the opportunity to giveaway an OnBoard 35 Air Protect Infant Car Seat to one lucky family. Enter to win by visiting the Safety 1st website. Watch the video and take a look around. Then return here and leave a comment on this entry saying something you have learned. (this is mandatory)
