NekLight: Hands Free Light Anytime Anywhere

Another one of those "I never knew I needed this until I had it items," the NekLight is my new favorite household gadget. Its unique design has an adjustable neck cord (with safety release) that slips right over the head. It also has a stabilizing clip that can hold the light flat against your body and keep it from bouncing about. The light is super bright and lights up to 200 feet ahead of you. It uses 3 AAA batteries that last over 150 hours. The NekLight is waterproof and lightweight, making it great for sports like an early morning bike ride or jog & night time walks after dinner! There is also a strap accessory that can convert it into a head light. The NekLight can stand alone for use on a table and it can also be clipped to a belt. It's uses are really limitless. I think it's a great item to add to emergency kits. Put one in each of the kids rooms, it would be safer to put this around the neck and then your child would be hands free to walk to safety in an emergency. Keep one in the car too and if you're going camping, make sure everyone has their own. Your midnight trip to the potty will be much more enjoyable. Also, a great trick or treat light! I could go on and on, but I'll stop now.

Also made by NekLight is the PupLight, a great light up collar for your furry friends.

Everyone needs a NekLight visit the site today and light up your life at night!

Just Me Music: Elmo Said Me...Nolan!

Looking for a super fun way to entertain your little one? How about that lovable furry red favorite that lives on Sesame Street? My 2.5 year old really loves to watch Sesame Street. My 5 year old still does too, but I know he'd never admit to it. He just watches "because his brother wants to." Their favorite part has always been Elmo's World. So, when my son's Elmo personalized music CD from Just Me Music came, I figured I'd surprise him and stick it in the car's CD player. When Elmo came on saying "Hi Nolan" I've never heard him laugh harder. It was hysterical. He kept saying over and over, "Elmo said ME, Nolan." We then proceeded to listen to the rest of the songs which are super fun. Elmo and his Sesame Street pals sing some great tunes directly to your little one. The sound quality is fabulous, and the names fit in so smoothly. The grand finale was spectacular, the personalized Elmo's World theme song. "La, La, La, La, Nolan's World."

If you've got a Sesame Street/Elmo fan in your household, this CD is a must have. Worth every penny and there are hundreds of names to choose from. Just Me Music also has personalized CD's featuring The Wiggles, Veggie Tales, & Barney. Oh, and keep an eye out, the Disney Princess Tea Party, Winnie the Pooh & Friends, and Mickey & Friends versions are on their way!

Purchase today, a Just Me Music CD will be a perfect addition to any Easter Basket!

Oliver's Labels: The Way Kids' Stuff Finds Its Way Home!

I was recently introduced to Oliver's Labels and I have to say they are truly the best labels on the market. Not only are they durable and super cute, but Oliver's Labels have something that I have never seen on any adhesive children's label. Their Found-It Tracking System is an online lost and found service that never shares your personal information. The website address and a nine digit tracking number are on each label, so if something is lost, the "finder" can visit the site and report it. Oliver's Labels acts as the liaison, so your missing item can safely find its way home.

Oliver's Labels come in several different themed designs. We have the Outer Space and Transportation designs and absolutely love them. I am particularly fond of the mini bag tags and the large bag tag. I put the large bag tag on my son's back pack and the mini tags on a few of my youngest son's diaper bags. The colors are vibrant and the artwork is very well done. Oliver's labels are super handy, you can purchase their original labels, shoe labels, iron-on clothing labels and lots more! I I definitely recommend purchasing one of savings packs, like the starter or sampler pack. It saves you lots of money, and you get a great variety of products.

Oliver's Labels would make a GREAT gift for a new mom and would definitely be appreciated at the next birthday party you attend. I have even used some of the labels for my own items. I stuck one on my digital camera and put one on my cell phone too! If for some reason you do not want to use the tracking system, you can order all products without it. However, there is no additional charge to have and use the tracking system on your labels. I'm so excited to be the first person to review this fabulous product, keep an eye out, Oliver's Label's is going to take over the world of labeling. Just remember you saw it first on Swanky Moms!

Beeboo: BIG Bubbles BIG Fun

Who doesn't love bubbles? Who doesn't love BIG bubbles? Well, with Beeboo Bubble Solution, you can make the biggest bubbles ever! I'm talking Guinness Book World Record bubbles. Extreme Bubbles, Inc. is the Minnesota based company that manufactures Beeboo Bubble Solution. On October 9th, 2005, they obtained the record for the largest free floating soap bubble. The bubble was made with a Beeboo wand and had a volume equivalent to 788 gallons! When I found the Beeboo site, I knew we had to give these super bubbles a try. Beeboo Bubble Solution is a concentrate. Mix one bottle with 14 cups of water (we cut ours in half to make two bubble sessions out of it) and you're good to go. I can't tell you how much fun this was for the whole family. As you can see by the pictures, my boys couldn't get enough, but I think it was my husband that had the most fun! The Beeboo Bubble Wand was extremely easy to use, and our giant bubbles got lots of attention from the neighbors. Their bubble starter kit would make a great gift. Unique and so much fun! They've also got a family pack which would make a great Father's Day gift. Buy dad something fun he can share with the whole family. Perfect for a day at the beach, park, or do it like us and stick to the driveway. Wherever you are, keep the camera handy, Beeboo Bubbles will inspire lots of smiles and laughs.

2 Red Hens: Shopping Cart Nest

As a mom, I think one of the greatest inventions ever made is the shopping cart cover. We've all seen the specials that show how many germs are lurking on those things and unfortunately, it's one of baby's favorite places to put their mouths! The problem with most cart covers is the fact that you feel like you're on your way to a slumber party carrying those pseudo sleeping bags around. Not to mention they take up a ton of space in the car. Well moms, I've found the perfect solution! Known for their super cute diaper bags, 2 Red Hens has also created the coolest shopping cart cover ever. It's called the Nest and although it is super compact, it fits full sized shopping carts. The whole thing folds into a cute little 8x8 inch zippered square that is small enough to keep just about anywhere. Keep it in the car, or toss it in the diaper bag, it also doubles as a high chair cover while dining out. The fabric your little one sits on is super soft fleece and the outside of the case is coated to make it waterproof and easy to wipe clean (it's machine washable too). The Nest comes in tons of great fabric choices and also has a great carrying strap with a hook, so you can attach it anywhere you want. Don't be confused by the size, remember that good things come in small packages!

Ditch the sleeping bag and visit the 2 Red Hens site. Your little chick will stay clean and comfy in their very own Nest.

Skipping Hippos: The Perfect Poncho

If you don't have a little girl, this item will make you wish you did. Skipping Hippos ponchos are a great alternative to jackets and sweaters. Why, you ask? Well, for one, it eliminates shoving little arms into little sleeves, and second, have you ever seen a jacket or sweater as cute as this? Toss the jackets and sweaters, it's time to try a poncho! Skipping Hippos is the dream come true of Swanky Mom Jolie Fay. Jolie was inspired by a quote from her childhood. There it was on her mother's sewing room wall, "She who dies with the most fabric wins." Jolie has followed in her mother's footsteps and now abides by the same motto. Her beautiful ponchos are made of high quality fleece adorned with perfect little trims. Each poncho has a tiny tassel on the hood and pom pom trim around the bottom. Just throw it over that cute little noggin and you're good to go, cute, warm, and fuzzy. The ponchos come in sizes 6-12 months through 4T and are available in a variety of really great colors. My personal favorites are the Sabine and Olive.

Spring is here, celebrate with a Skipping Hippos poncho. They're so cute, you'll wish they had them in your size!

The DaysAgo Digital Timer

We've all said it, "When did I open up that....?" Well, you can now answer that question with the DaysAgo digital timer. Created by 2 moms, Deborah Stephens and Kathleen Whitehurst, the DaysAgo timer was originally designed to keep track of when baby food was opened. With freshness dates of just a few days, busy moms often forget when a jar was opened. I used to do this all the time. When my boys were babies, I threw away countless "mystery date" jars. Now, moms can relax, pop on the magnetic or suction cup based timer and with the touch of a button, you will know exactly how many days your food has been opened. What's fabulous about the DaysAgo timer is that it has SO many uses. I am obsessed with when I opened up my condiments. I've seen way to many of those shows about "What's growing in your fridge?" The days ago can keep track of Mayo, Salsa, and anything else you're a little unsure of. They also have a super helpful area on their site that tells you the "lifespan" of most foods. Available in 4 colors with either a magnetic or suction cup back, the DaysAgo timer can be purchased online as well as in 100's of retail stores. This great little gadget is a must have for every household. The DaysAgo Timer would make a wonderful addition to a "new mom" gift basket, It's the perfect little item you never knew you needed, until now!

Bumpy Name Orbit Labels: Keep Track of your Sippy Cups & Much, Much More

Looking for a fun way to keep track of stuff? Check out the Bumpy Name Orbit Label. Created by Brenda Lee Feldman, the Bumpy Name was born out of necessity. When markers washed away, and adhesives started curling up, she knew there must be a better way to label her little one's drink and snack containers. This one of a kind label is super unique. It's made of FDA compliant, non-toxic material that is both dishwasher and microwave safe. The rubbery band fits snugly around containers, so it can not be easily removed by the owner's cute little hands. The Bumpy Name label features your child's name in text and also in braille, which is really fun for kids to learn. It sparked a great "teaching moment" with my 5 year old. We discussed what braille is, why some people use it, etc. It was really great. The Bumpy Name label has tons of uses. For infants and toddlers they are great for bottles, sippy cups, & snack containers. For youths and adults, they're great for water bottles, drink containers, and misc items like sunscreen bottles, flashlights, and other household items. My 5 year old likes to wear his as a bracelet. Bumpy Name labels come in over 200 popular names. If you can't find the name you are looking for, you can have them custom made with up to 2 lines of text. The second line is great for a phone number or allergy alert. Visit the Bumpy Name site today & pick some up for yourself and your little ones!

Baby Fabulous: Put Their Name in Brights!

Baby Fabulous is beyond fabulous! Their Name in Brights blanket is definitely the most amazing personalized item I have ever seen. These super hip blankets come in two sizes, small and large. I definitely recommend the large, it's big enough for a grown up, which means plenty of maximum cuddling space for little ones, with room for those unexpected growth spurts. What I love about the Name in Brights blanket, is that the patterns and color choices make it a blanket that will last way beyond babyhood. In other words, the perfect blanket from CRADLE TO COLLEGE. This is a blanket built to last, its construction is flawless, the fabrics are beautiful, and I can't even describe how yummy soft this thing is. I have to say, I have my own, with my name on it. It's my couch blankie, perfect for watching my favorite shows! I am pretty positive that everyone in the house will eventually have their own, because they are constantly trying to take over on mine. The Name in Brights blanket is a must have, super special keepsake that will be treasured forever. Shower your loved one with a Name in Brights blanket and you will definitely be remembered forever as the one who gave them their favorite blankie. Baby Fabulous also offers gift certificates, so if you don't know the baby's name yet, you can still give the best gift ever.

Yoga Ma Baby Ga: Yoga for Two

I am due in three months, and am already thinking about how to get back in shape. That's why the DVD "Yoga Ma Baby Ga" is so appealing. It guides you through a 55-minute-long yoga routine developed by teacher and mother Jo Ann Colker Arison, who pays attention to new mothers' special needs (Kegel exercises, not-quite-healed Caesareans). The video has three modes for mom, baby, and mom/baby together. Not that your baby is ready for yoga just yet -- instead, soft music and photos keep her interested while you work out to the picture-in-a-picture workout instruction. Arison looks like the routine has worked for her, and I hope it will work for me as well!

DLL Rainwear: Hip Rain Gear for the Whole Family

With April Showers on the way, you will definitely want to check out DLL Rainwear. This amazing site has everything you need for a rainy day. DLL offers the best selection of rain gear I have ever seen, including raincoats, rain boots, umbrellas, & clogs. What caught my eye though, were the Mommy & Me rain boots. As a mom of boys, there aren't many "mommy & me" items on the market. However, rain boots are a perfect Mommy & Me item! My boys and I have the Tattoo City rain boots in Blue. They are super cool, sporting vintage style tattoos including the famous "mom & dad" in a heart. The quality is fabulous too, they have an adjustable buckle on the side that can give them a custom fit, and they are super comfy. My boys love them. In fact, the first day we got them, my 3 year old wouldn't take them off. His quote of the day, "Look at my cool blue boots." The motto here is who cares if it's raining, the boots are cool, wear them often. If you've got boys, you must also check out the Tossed Skulls, perfect for the little pirate in your life. For you mommies of girls, the Giant Cupcakes are a must have. Visit the site today and start Puddle Stomping In Style!
