Music and Lights Comfy Car from Playgro

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Baby's got a new ride! The Music and Lights Comfy Car from Playgro is filled with amazing activities to keep your little one busy for hours. This adorable plush car is the perfect place for baby to practice sitting up or for older babies to take the detachable steering wheel for a spin, honk the horn and explore the fun light and sound effects!
It even comes with baby's very own side mirror to help them learn about reflections and encourage imaginative play. And when it is time to go on a “road” trip, baby can bring along their favorite toys in the convenient storage pouch in the back of the car! Available in red or pink, this cute Comfy Car provides stimulating play in a safe environment.
The base of the Comfy Car provides an open space for little feet to kick with glee and allows the toy to grow with your child. It encourages both fine motor skills and large motor skills, and the friendly "face" makes baby smile. Turn the wheel, crank the gear shift, twist the key, and drive like mom and dad!
Designed for ages 6 months and up, the bright colors and musical features of this stationary car will help develop baby's imagination. Baby will love the sound of the horn beeping, the indicator clicking and the rattling balls spinning.
Easily detach and attach the music and lights driver toy with velcro straps to strollers or a carseat for another way to play on the go. The Comfy Car is soft and squishy, but sturdy enough to support a sitting baby. It's wonderfully constructed and has lots of great features to keep baby entertained.
Learn more about the wonderful Music and Lights Comfy Car from Playgro at www.playgro.com. You can purchase it at Amazon.com and it's coming soon to Buy Buy Baby Stores. Playgro products are always fabulous and I highly recommend this one!

GOTTA HAVE IT for the Modern Traveler

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
When I travel, there is so much to carry, so I simply love it when a company creates something that makes traveling easier. The Hydaway Collapsible Bottle is a genius idea! Since you cannot carry a water bottle through the airport security anymore, it is such a hassle carry along an empty water bottle and at the outrageous price airports sell water for, I often have to wait until beverages are served mid-flight for a drink.
The Hydaway Collapsible Bottle is the perfect solution! Small enough to fit in your pocket at just over an inch thick, it pops up into a water bottle in seconds. It comes in lots of great colors and you can choose from 12oz or 21oz. All Hydaway lightweight, collapsible bottles feature an easy to use, flip-up straw for quick sips, a carabiner-friendly carry handle, and come with a watertight guarantee. They are also BPA-Free, taste and odor-free, and are dishwasher safe.
Don't travel anywhere without a Hydaway Collapsible Bottle. Toss one in your lunchbox, handbag, backpack, and car so you always have one handy. When you're done drinking, just press it down and stow it away for next time. Get one for everyone in the family. Hydaway bottles can help us to reduce waste and keep plastics out of landfills. I love my Hydaways!

Antsy Pants Build and Play Kit

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Children love to play pretend. It helps them to understand the world around them when they use their imagination. Pretend play allows them to be someone other than themselves and to try on other types of roles. The new Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits allow your child to be both the builder as they construct a number of different play structures, plus hours of play once it's built!
I received the small Antsy Pants Build and Play Kit plus a Tent Cover to try it out for myself. I initially though the small kit would contain the pieces for only the tent, but I was delighted to discover that it contained enough building pieces for several different structures. The covers are sold individually, so you can purchase several different covers using just the one main kit.
There are also two other building kits, in medium in large, which will provide even more building pieces, as well as expansion kits and other accessories. If you're on a budget, you can stick to one small kit and one cover. The small kit came with an instruction booklet with easy to understand step by step assembly.
Simply choose what you want to build and the booklet will tell you which poles and which connectors to use to build that structure. My tent took about five minutes to completely assemble. The connector pieces easily snap into the poles and are secured by a little bump that fits into a hole in each pole.
I could easily see a child as young as five being able to assemble this on their own, but having an extra set of hands would certainly be helpful. The structures are safety rated for children as young as three for play. I found no pieces in the kit that posed a choking hazard either.
Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits allow children to construct tents, lemonade stands, farmers' market stands, donut shops, and so much more. For even more creative fun, there is a creative cover so your child can use markers to make their own play structure. Endless imaginative toys that require no batteries are the best kind of play for a child!
The building pieces are made of plastic and the play covers are made of polyester, making the pieces easy to clean if necessary. The tent cover is brightly printed with snow-capped mountains, stars, and a twinkling moon. The cover wraps all the way around the building pieces, providing a three-sided cover with a front and back opening.
The cover easily slipped over the building pieces and the cover even has edges that wrap slightly around the structure, making it even more sturdy. I can easily see this being a permanent fixture in a child's bedroom and my own kids would have chosen to make their beds in this tent when they were small. It's the perfect spot for my grandkids to play and sleep when they come to visit!
Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits and Covers are available exclusively at Target and Target.com. When you purchase your child Antsy Pants products, Antsy Pants will help national non-profit KaBOOM! build playgrounds for kids living in poverty across America.

This might just be the cutest backpack I've ever seen in my entire life. Puku Pals are a line of premium backpacks for kids and they come in four charming styles - owl, bunny, monkey, and bear. These backpacks are sized just for kids, but there is plenty of room for everything kids need to carry. This owl's big eyes and pointy little ears make me smile.
