Hudson Glow Rattle - Interactive Teether and Rattle from Kid O

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
At first, your baby's needs are fairly simple - milk, love, touch, sleep, and clean diapers. In just a few short weeks, your baby is already craving mental stimulation, through interactions with others and their environment, in order to create brain connections that will last for a lifetime. A parent's job includes providing baby with developmental toys and activities that stimulate all the senses - hearing, seeing, touching, tasting, and smelling.
Hudson Glow Rattle by PlayMonster Kid O is a wonderful, interactive teether and rattle that will help to stimulate four of baby's senses. This adorable puppy is sized perfectly for the littlest hands at just 4"x3"x2" and it will fit into any bag for easy portability. Hudson's legs are made of a firm, textured material that is perfect for grasping, holding, and teething.
Inside Hudson's body are tiny beads that responds to baby's every move with a soft gentle rattling sound. All of the toys made by PlayMonster Kid O are tested by an independent lab for safety, and are made with no PVC, BPA, Phthalates, or lead. And just look at that sweet puppy face! Hudson is designed for ages 6 months and up; perfect for my sweet granddaughter.
Hudson has a special glow too! Just tilt Hudson's green legs down and his spots glow green, then tilt Hudson's red legs down and his spots glow red. This helps develop baby's eyesight, motor skills, intelligence, and cause-and-effect concepts. I'm very impressed with how much thought went into designing this toy. Hudson Glow Rattle gets five stars from me! Christmas isn't far off, so order today!

My PromotionDotCom Fall Wish List

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my post. 

As much as I love my backyard, summer is just too hot and humid to really enjoy being outside. The weatherman is saying this is our last week of near 100 temperatures, so I am looking forward to spending my fall evenings sitting on my back patio, burning wood (and marshmallows) in our fire pit, and relaxing while I watch the leaves fall from the trees. We've spent so much time indoors working on the renovations to our farmhouse, that we've really neglected the yard this first year in our home. I just discovered Promotion.com and I'm working on a wish list of items I need (and a few things I just want). You won't believe the bargains on Promotion.com!

1. A Wooden Wishing Well

Every farmhouse needs a wishing well, don't you think? This wooden wishing well is a beautiful addition to any yard, front or back, and even comes with a hanging planter bucket. This artful design gives you the opportunity to decorate with the seasons. Fill it with pumpkins for fall, plant a poinsettia in the bucket for winter, and fill the well and the bucket with vines and flowers for spring. There are so many possibilities!
2. A 43-Gallon Compost Tumbler

Okay, so compost is not pretty, but this composting tumbler will make your spring flowers grow like crazy and your summer vegetables tastier. Don't throw away kitchen scraps; just toss them in the compost tumbler with cut grass and fallen leaves (and chicken droppings). Turn it every couple of days and in just weeks you can feed your plants with compost.
3. A Chicken Coop

Ever since we moved into our farmhouse last fall, I've wanted a small flock of chickens. This fancy 60" Large Deluxe Wooden Chicken Coop is like a high-class hotel for chickens! It's also a great home for ducks, rabbits, quail, and more. It will keep the chickens safe when they aren't roaming the yard, gives them a place to lay their eggs (and an easy-open door to collect them), and honestly, it's the cutest chicken coop I've ever seen.
4. A Wooden Garden Bridge

For some, a wooden garden bridge may seem frivolous, but for me, I know exactly where I'd put this charming 5-foot long wooden bridge. I live in a small town of 250 people, so we don't have sidewalks or even pavement on our street. We do have a drainage ditch for rainwater that runs alongside the gravel road, and our mailbox is on the other side of the road. This bridge would be absolutely perfect perched over the ditch, so I wouldn't have to leap over it to get to my mail! Can you imagine how pretty it would be with holiday garland draped over the railings?
5. An Outdoor Water Fountain

A water feature in the yard is like the cherry on a sundae! I absolutely love the style of this 2-Tier Outdoor Barrel Waterfall Fountain with pump. It's perfect for a farmhouse, or any house for that matter. It provides the birds and squirrels with fresh moving water and offers the peaceful sounds of a waterfall. Set it up on your patio or tuck it into a flowerbed so that flowers grow up and around it during the spring and summer.
6. A Wooden Wagon Flower Planter

I think this is one of my absolute favorite items at Promotion.com! It's a beautiful wood wagon with wheels that roll, a handle that moves up and down, and even a couple drain holes, but I can see this wagon as so much more than a flower planter. This is the perfect home decor item for a farmhouse! I can put it in my entryway for fall, filled with pumpkins. I can put it near my Christmas tree and fill it with gifts. I can put it in my kitchen to hold cookbooks and large serving trays that don't fit in the cabinet. I can put it in the bedroom, drape a blanket over the side, and fill it with throw pillows. I think this will definitely be the first thing I get from my wish list!
7. A Wood Ladder Step Stool

My kitchen desperately needs a step stool because I have upper cabinets that I cannot even touch if I'm standing on the floor. I have nine foot ceilings and the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling. We had purchased a metal one that is just too heavy to lug around and too big to store in the kitchen. This Folding Multi-Functional 3-Tier Ladder Wood Step Stool is lightweight, sturdy, and beautiful. Plus, the lower steps fold up into the stool so that it becomes a handy extra seat! 
8. A Waffle Maker

Okay, so I really don't NEED one, but this Stainless Steel Waffle Maker does more than just four waffles at a time. Did you know that you can cook other things on a waffle maker? Scramble up some eggs, pour it on the waffle maker, then add shredded cheese, and chopped meat and veggies, for a waffle omelet. Need something fast and filling? Toss a bunch of tator tots on the waffle maker, and add some cheese and bacon bits to make baked potato waffles. You can even use prepackaged items like pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough or pre-made cinnamon roll dough. The possibilities are endless (and delicious)!

9. A Food Dehydrator

This food dehydrator is the ultimate food-saving kitchen tool. This 5-Tray Food Dehydrator with Timer Temperature Control can help you reduce your food waste, help you keep your summer fruits and vegetables in storage longer, and help you have healthy foods available when your family wants a quick snack. Make delicious dehydrated fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, seasonings, and even crude medicines. Just think how much money you will save!
