Better Family Road Trips with a LUNCIA Cooler

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Summer is the time for road trips! Whether it's a day trip to visit one of the many interesting cities or towns in our state, or a weekend trip to another state, it's always a good idea to take along food and drinks rather than repeatedly stop into convenience stores or fast food joints. The bigger your family, the more money you can save by taking along your meals, snacks, and drinks.
This LUNCIA Cooler is, by far, the best cooler we've ever taken on a road trip. There are so many fabulous features in the LUNCIA Cooler! It is expertly designed with airtight zippers to prevent the loss of cool air and minimize any water leakage. It also has a T-shaped zipper slider and serrated zippers for smooth opening and closing.
Designed with bands at the front for hanging handy items, and a bungee cord for hats or helmets, LUNCIA Coolers have thought of everything! Buckle stabilizers at the front and back can be used to attach the cooler when cycling, and adjustable straps at the back are for an umbrella, extra clothes, or even a picnic blanket. The secret pocket at the back is convenient to store bank cards, keys, and other essentials.
The surface and lining of LUNCIA Coolers are made of double-sided waterproof fabric. Without adding volume to the cooler or occupying the inner space, the high-density compact foam provides an effective insulated compartment. Your items will stay cool in a LUNCIA Cooler for up to THREE DAYS! You can easily carry this lightweight LUNCIA Cooler by its adjustable shoulder strap, two side handles, or the comfort strap at the top.
Look how much ROOM is inside! I dropped a whole watermelon in it (see photo below) to give you some perspective on its size. LUNCIA Coolers are designed to serve up to four people for three days. That sounds like an invitation to the perfect weekend road trip. Take your new LUNCIA Cooler to the beach for a weekend of fun in the sun or take it along in the boat on a fishing trip. It's perfect for picnics, outdoor sporting events, concerts in the local parks, and so many other exciting adventures. I know you'll love the LUNCIA Cooler as much as we do!

PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station Playset

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you are worried that your children will be susceptible to "summer brain drain" then I have the perfect solution for you! The beloved and recognizable PLAYMOBIL brand is launching a new Mars Mission line this spring. The timing of this launch is perfect since Mars and Space Exploration are topping lots of news stories these days. Plus, July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon.
Leading the new line of PLAYMOBIL playsets is the amazing Mars Space Station. It's equipped with all the tools needed for space exploration. Inside, the astronauts can enter the central command station or choose one of the modules equipped with everything from sleeping compartments to a lab for analyzing samples. It even features functioning lights so the astronauts can find their way back to the station. The attention to detail in the PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station is amazing!
The PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station took several hours to assemble. It comes in many small pieces because the construction of the playset is part of the fun. It also comes with a booklet filled with detailed images of how to construct the Mars Space Station. My husband wanted to build it, and he spent two full evenings putting it together. The pieces snap together easily, and no glue is required.
I think the Mars Space Station is the perfect rainy weather toy to pull out and keep kids busy, focused, and engaged when they cannot play outside. It is designed for ages 6 years and up, but I think kids under age 10 years might need a bit of mom's or dad's help to get it assembled. PLAYMOBIL did a wonderful job designing this toy and I know children are going to love playing with it!
The PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station playset is a wonderful way to keep your kids involved in STEM projects over the summer. Even beyond the joy of playing with the astronauts in this extensive space station, I can see this as the starting point of an entire summer filled with exploration of space, the planets, the stars, and more.
Here is the description by PLAYMOBIL of the Mars Space Station:
"Venture into undiscovered worlds with the Mars Space Station! Equipped with all the tools needed for space exploration, the station is ready for a successful mission! Thanks to the functioning lights beneath the central hub, astronauts can easily find their way back to base. Then, enter the illuminated station interior via the front ramp and through the secure rotating hatch. Once inside, astronauts can enter the central command space, from which all missions are monitored, or choose one of the modules, equipped with everything from sleeping compartments for the crew to a lab for analyzing samples. The two free docking stations allow the crew to connect external equipment, such as the Mission Rocket with Launch Site and the Satellite Meteoroid Laser (each sold separately).
During their down time, the astronauts can keep in shape with the station’s fitness equipment. To access the interior, pull off the station’s removable roof and get hands on with all aspects of the mission. The movable laser gun helps protect against unknown elements, while the alarm lights and sound warn against any threats. Other sound effects, including radio contact, jet propulsion, and background space noises, add to the fun and bring the mission to life! And, what would space adventures be without a trusty robot to guide you? The included robot may be a machine, but watch out for all its different faces. Turning its eyes will change its facial expression. Set includes two astronauts, one robot, space station, computer, tools, food supplies, space crystals, telescope, video recorder, and tons of other accessories."

Waterproof Smock Bib - Baby To Love

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Nearly everything a baby or toddler does is messy. When my granddaughter was here in January, mealtimes were delightfully chaotic. Her parents had gotten into the habit of just taking off her clothes before meals, and they remarked they wish they had a bib that covered everything. I'm so excited that I get to send the Baby To Love Waterproof Smock Bib to them!
It is made of waterproof material, with gathers at the wrist and velcro at the back, so it can completely cover your child's shirt and arms, and when the child is placed in a highchair, it also covers their lap. It can easily be wiped down after a messy meal with a cloth or sponge, or you can toss it in the washer.
The pink heart smock is perfect for little girls and Baby To Love also offers one for boys with blue stripes. This waterproof smock is also perfect for early learning art activities, water table play, exploration with slime or shaving cream, and so many other wonderfully messy learning opportunities.
This wonderful smock bib from Baby To Love solves the problem of messy food and fun by protecting your little darling from destroying every piece of clothing. Just think how many less extra outfits you'll have to carry in the diaper bag! This Waterproof Smock is the perfect gift for parents of babies and toddlers.

PittMoss Organic Potting Mix

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
PittMoss is an organic potting mix made from recycled cellulose fibers, like newspaper. It keeps material out of the landfill, which allows gardeners to have good stewardship of our planet. The unique physical, chemical, and biological properties of PittMoss maximize the use of nutrients and water.
PittMoss is a next-generation growing media. Not only does it reduce the need for applied chemicals and water, it is made from organic and natural materials. PittMoss can be used in so many different ways. Whether you're an avid gardener, a specialty grower, or you like to mix your own potting or gardening soil to perfection, using PittMoss can dramatically improve your results.
The first thing I noticed about PittMoss was its lightweight properties. Carrying a bag of PittMoss is so much easier than carrying a bag of regular potting soil. It's also an easier medium to work with when planting, especially in planters, like my planter wagon of strawberries. PittMoss is easy to handle, easy to move around, and easy to spread around plants.
PittMoss is also less dusty than a peat-based blend. The surface area of PittMoss encourages a better balance of air and water, which acts like a probiotic for plants, helping them grow bigger and better. The recycled ingredients of PittMoss are also free of pests, insects, and diseases. I love working with PittMoss!
I've gotten around a dozen tiny strawberries from my two strawberry plants before adding PittMoss to the existing potting soil I used when I planted them a month ago. I'm so excited to see if the addition of PittMoss increases the size of the berries. I'll update my post in a few weeks to let you know!

MagnaReady Men's Flannel Shirt #review #fathersday

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
To the unknowing eye, a MagnaReady shirt looks just like any other dress shirt hanging in the closet. Same collar and cuffs, same row of little white buttons down the front. But, those buttons are merely for looks. Hidden inside the placket of a MagnaReady shirt are powerful magnets that link together for a secure closure. Decorative buttons grace the exterior of MagnaReady shirts for a crisp and professional appearance without the hassle of manipulating tiny buttons into buttonholes. Available in short and long sleeve versions for men and in long sleeves for women, MagnaReady shirts can also be used as adaptive clothing for people with disabilities or conditions that limit mobility.
In the photo below, I used different lighting so I could show how magnets actually replace buttons on these dress shirts. My husband absolutely LOVES this MagnaReady flannel shirt! In fact, he liked wearing it so much the first day, that he wanted me to wash it so he could wear it again the next day. I thought it was great fun to walk up to him and rip open his shirt, then let it fall back together and magnetize itself back together!
MagnaReady dress shirts are wrinkle-free and stain resistant with barrel cuffs and a spread collar. For even more convenience they are also machine washable. Simply press the shirt closed so the magnets are stuck to each other and the shirt will tumble around the wash cycle without attaching to the machine. MagnaReady men’s shirts are available in a variety of patterns and solids in more formal long sleeve versions and casual short sleeve styles. MagnaReady women’s shirts are available long sleeved in white and stripes. These shirts are a fabulous idea for Father's Day!
