Just Buzzin' By: Clean Tables, Clean Clothes, Clean Floors...OH MY!

I was recently introduced to a fantastic company called Just Buzzin' By. Founded by super swanky, super smart, scientist mommy Sriti Fusillo, Just Buzzin' By allows moms to feel good in many ways. As if it weren't enough that your floors will stay spotless with their super cool splat mats, your tables will be sticky no more with their adorable place mats, and your little one's clothes will be crumb free with their snap pocket bibs, Just Buzzin' By goes above and beyond any other company to create portable, durable, and stylish products that are completely safe for your favorite mess makers. All of their products are made from PVC-Free, Pthalate Free, Lead Free, Non-Toxic materials. I know, you're sold already, but guess what? There's more! All products are wipeable, machine washable and available in 20 pleasing patterns.

So, follow in my footsteps and toss that piece of junk splat mat you purchased at your local baby store. Replace Big Bird with Big Style. I am in love with our camo splat mat. It is now a permanent fixture under our indoor easel. Its generous size allows no spills to make it on to the wood floors and it looks cool too. I prefer mine under the easel, but there are tons of other uses I can think of. I just may need to get a second one! Bring it to the park (wet grass will no longer mean wet butt), use it at amusement parks (folds up small, it will fit in the stroller basket and the whole family will stay clean on the parade route), stick it under the high chair (messy eater, easy clean up), great for sporting events (cover those dirty bleachers) and on and on and on.....

To place your order, contact Just Buzzin' By directly & celebrate Earth Day with a purchase that will last a lifetime! Use the code "swankymom" for 15% off your order!

Lego Duplos: Dino Lovers Rejoice!

Who doesn't love Legos? I mean, they're the gift that keeps on giving, put them together, play, leave them out for a few days, put them away and rediscover them again a few days later. My boys, ages 4 & 6 are obsessed with their Dino Valley Duplo set. This is literally one of the very few toys that does not initiate fights. Their cooperative play is unbelievable with this set. I LOVE that the instructions are easy enough for my oldest to understand and he helps my little one put together the entire set. Set up takes them about 15 minutes, but then they will play for at least an hour! It cracks me up listening to them. I mean the "cavemen" are having dino races, the dinos are cooking up some dinner, and everyone naps around the "fire." I've actually sat down and joined in several times. You should hear their cavemen bedtime stories! It's a great time and their creativity just blows me away. The set is so detailed, everything from the steak to the "fur" blankets makes Dino Valley the ultimate gift for kids ages 3-6. Just for boys? No way, we recently had a party at our home and the little girls loved playing with it too.

Visit the Lego site today and create some prehistoric playtime for your little ones! All Duplo Dino sets can be purchased directly from Lego.

Little Jet Set: Making Travel Fun & EASY!

It's that time of the year, a few months until summer, time to plan that family vacation! Maybe you already have your travel plans, a trip to Disneyworld? Family Reunion? Cross country in the motor home? Whatever it is that you are planning, do not leave home without visiting Little Jet Set. This fantastic site caters to the needs of traveling families. From suitcase solutions (you must see the Trunki) to travel friendly toys and sleeping solutions, Little Jet Set is your one stop shop for all of your on the go needs.

I always buy a few "surprise" toys before a vacation, especially when there is an airplane ride involved. There's nothing like the distraction of a new toy. But do you need to be planning a vacation to shop at Little Jet Set? Ummm, No Way! Think car rides to Target and evenings out to dinner (you know those waxy crayons only keep them occupied for about 2 minutes and after 3 minutes, they're broken into 100's of pieces).

When our Automoblox from Little Jet Set arrived, I knew they'd be a boredom buster and immediately put them in my purse for a trip to dinner. They are small, lightweight, and look ultra cool. After ordering some Happy Face Pancakes at IHOP, I busted out the Automoblox and VOILA! Happy Kids = Happy Parents. We had so much fun interchanging all of the parts. My boys were creating all sorts of new vehicles, "double cars", "limos", "mini cars" and more. It was great!

Little Jet Set is genius, visit today and have happy travels always!
