Revisiting a Favorite: Sweet Pea3 Kid's MP3 Player

Although the favorites have changed throughout the years, my boys have been listening to music since conception! In fact, even at ages 4 & 6, they still listen to the same classic lullaby CD every night. Whether it's their own room, grandma's house, or on vacation, they want their "music." In the past, we'd lug a portable CD player, but now, we've got the ultimate solution! You MUST check out the SweetPea3 by SweetPea Toy Company. It's an MP3 player for tots ages 0-8. Yes, 0-8! The rubber coated MP3 unit is super easy to use and the sound is fantastic. The player comes with three playlists. It hooks right into the computer with it's own USB cord. When you sync it to your computer, 3 folders come up. Each one is a playlist and you can drop and drag your music into the playlists you desire. So simple!

On ours, playlist one consists of some fun songs that came preloaded on the unit. I then added some of our own favorite fun songs like the entire They Might Me Giants "Here Come the ABC's." Play List 2 consists of some of my 6 year old's favs like Beastie Boys & Kiss. The third playlist is our "bedtime" music. My boys bring the SweetPea3 everywhere. It's lightweight and easy to operate.

The SweetPea3 comes in two colors, blue & violet, and takes one AA battery that will play 40 hours. The unit also comes with an AC adaptor (great for bedtime listening) and stores up to 4 hours of music. All files must be MP3 files, the easiest way to obtain them is to load your own cd's onto your computer and then transfer them to the unit. It takes just seconds! The user manual is very easy to follow and the company's customer service is fantastic. Best of all though? Grown ups control everything. There's virtually no way for kids to mess this thing up! The menu must be accessed by a specific pressing of keys. This is where the volume and playlists are chosen. The only thing little fingers can do is press play and move the arrows to forward to the next song, or go back to the last.

Visit the SweetPea Toy Company online store today and pick up your own SweetPea3. You will wonder how you ever got along with out it. Everyone I know wants ours! My sister even tried to take it from my boys. She has a 1 month old and wants to hang it from her carseat so my nephew can listen to his lullabies in the car while she enjoys her own music up front. Honestly, everyone can use a SweetPea3. From the crib to the car, the SweetPea3 will keep you rockin... or relaxing!

Make Your Party Perfect with the Aloha Chiller!

Recently, I scoured the Los Angeles Gift Show only to find a small handful of products I felt that were a must share with Swanky Moms around the world! The Aloha Chill'R was definitely my favorite find. Invented by a team of Swanky Moms on the beautiful island of Oahu, The Aloha Chill'R was created out of necessity. With a lifestyle that includes beach parties, ball games, and get togethers with friends, the creative mommy duo got fed up with warm pot lucks and set out to solve their problem!

I too, love to throw parties and when I saw this product, I knew it was a hostess must have. Simple, sturdy & sleek, the Aloha Chill'R is made of clear high grade acrylic and will keep your party food fresh, cool, and pest free! Simply add ice to the bottom container and fill the inner compartment area with your favorite party foods you'd like to keep chilled. Perfect for any salad, green, pasta or fruit. Also great for salsa and dips. Really the serving possibilities are endless! Available in 2 sizes, the small Aloha Chill'R has 2 compartments, while the large holds one big single dish. I love the fact that the Aloha Chill'R is clear, this accentuates the food and makes the product work with any type of party. Whether you're hosting a Star Wars birthday party for your 5 year old, or holding an elegant bridal shower for your little sis, the Aloha Chill'R will fit right in! Another feature I love? It stores so nicely, the lids fit right into the unit so it is nice and compact, not another bulky item to add to your cupboard. One use and the Aloha Chill'R will forever be a fixture of your party hosting days.

Visit the Aloha Chill'R site today and be sure to pick up both sizes. After all, you never know what you're going to be asked to bring to the party!
