Goody Bug Kid's Review and Giveaway!

Positive reinforcement has never been easier. We tried out the Goody Bug system. I was amazed at how well my kids took to using this system. I am not going to lie at first I was very skeptical. I have a 3 year old who is currently potty training with little to no success. Goody Bug turned this around. I picked snails because my babies love Gary on SpongeBob. They have so many choices though. I like the cute ladybugs awfully well to! My favorite thing about the Goody Bug System is it isn't rewarding just one good behavior but a pattern of good behaviors. Gavin figured out pretty quick a full chart meant a prize. We had tried giving candies when he went to the potty even toys and it worked for a day or so but you run out of toys and candy. With the Goody Bug System you set up what the prize for a complete chart is game time or a special toy your child wants. I am so impressed I have asked for mom to purchase one for Christian for Christmas. They have been sharing this chart it is time for both to have one! Please check out Goody Bug's Facebook page and go to Goody Bug's website and purchase your own Goody Bug today! One lucky winner will win a Goody Bug JUST ENTER BELOW!

Tek Recon Blaster Review and Giveaway!

What's more fun than watching your 3 and 5 year old battle it out? Mine loved having epic target shooting contests with their Tek Recon Blasters! I loved watching how much fun they had. I did however make mine wear protective eyewear when shooting. It takes 2 seconds to put on them and is necessary when shooting a wayward NRG round could go anywhere. Better safe than sorry. I was amazed at the technology Tek Recon had to offer. I thought my kids were getting a toy gun. What we got was an actual online gaming experience. The live action online gaming app enhances the battling experience taking gaming to a whole new level. We connected our smartphone and the kids went wild. The app uses mobile and GPS technology to allow multi player/team battles to life! The best part about the app is it is free! My kids have had hours of fun with their Tek Recon Blasters and me and the hubby even got in on the play a little. Tek Recon wants you guys to get it on the action enter below for your chance to win a Tek Recon prize pack complete with extra ammo! Make sure to like Tek Recon on facebook and follow on twitter! Watch all the awesome Tek Recon videos on YouTube and check out Tek Recons site to buy!

Refresh-a-Baby Review!

Have you ever been in the car trying to scoop baby formula into a bottle pour in the water shake it up all in an effort to soothe a crying baby. If so you will appreciate Refresh-a-Baby. Refresh-a-baby offers you a solution to the baby bottle battle. Eliminate all those steps by having your formula pre-measured and all you have to do is pour the pre-measureed formula in a water bottle and pop on your refresh-a-baby. Mine are out of baby formula but still my smallest drinks bottles. It ios always a battle to keep from spilling in the car. We took our Refresh-a-Baby for a try. We travel 3 hours to my families for Thanksgiving so when Gavin wanted a drink I was ready I handed him a water bottle with his Refresh-a-Baby. He loved it not only was there no spills but we found it also adapted to many of his kiddie juice drinks as well as sport drinks. I really love Refresh-A-Baby. It is something I would not only buy for myself but would reccomend to anyone who wants to keep their car interior spot free. Give Refresh-A-Baby a like on facebook and a follow on twitter. Watch out for tommorrow as Refresh-a-Baby has graciously offered to give one reader a set of Refresh-a-Babies! All Holiday Gift Guide Contests will open tommorrow!

Glitterin's Review!

Science meets fun in this amazing Glitterins Magical Optical Science Toy-Deluxe kit! My kids were in awe at first they didn't understand how I was making rainbows with them and then I went into details about how the light was making the rainbows. There are so many awesome activities you can do. It comes with tons of different images to use from dolphins to snowflakes. My kids favorite was the spider web. Then you can also make art with tape it is so easy and it is so beautiful. I am taking the smaller kit we received the Glitterins Living Rainbow Kit with Bonus for my sons class we have set up a science lab date and I can't wait to share this with them. This is something all ages to can enjoy. My kids are 3 and 5 and they had no trouble; it made them feel so grown up that they could see the rainbows and make them on their own. The rainbows we made are in the pics below! This is a 2013 Holiday Gift Guide MUST HAVE! If you buy your kids one thing for Christmas buy them a Glitterins kit they can learn and have fun at the same time!

Therafit Shoes Giveaway!

This review and giveaway is being hosted by The Illustrated Mom and sponsored by Therfit Shoes.

I was intrigued when I found Therafit Shoes because of my bad back. The appeared like they would be very comfortable and perhaps help me straighten out my back when I walk. Therafit kindly sent me a pair of my choice to review so I picked the Silver Sandals. They arrived really quickly and I was so impressed with how they looked! They are so pretty!


I received my Therafit shoes about 15 minutes before I had to go walk two miles to get my son from his bus stop, a mile each way. I debated... Should I try the new shoes with such an adventure? Most of the time new shoes hurt until you break them in, but I had faith in Therafit. So I did it. I slipped them on and prepared for my two mile walk.


They looked so adorable on my feet! And they are the most comfortable shoes I have EVER worn. No bull. So I got ready to set out on my adventure. Not only did my feet not get sore from wearing new shoes, but they NEVER hurt from the shoes at all. Not even after getting back home. To this day I wear my Therafit shoes every single day and they have done nothing but make my feet feel great and they DO help my back!

I recommend Therafit shoes to everyone, not just those with back problems. Your feet would thank you big time! They have so many styles to choose from too, sandals, tennis shoes. I honestly can't even fathom wearing "regular" sole shoes ever again!

Check out Therafit at this links here:

And now to even more exciting news from Therafit! They would like to give one lucky Illustrated Mom follower a free pair of Therafit shoes of their choice! I am SO thrilled to be able to offer this to all of you!!! Remember, you can't win if you don't enter the contest below! It's super easy to enter!

Bycicle Playing Cards Review!

When I think of the upcoming holidays my first thoughts go to my family around the table in a massive Poker game! There is only one brand of cards we would ever use Bycicle Playing Cards! Bycicle cards have so many amazing designs as you can see from the amazing sets below they sent my family to enjoy this holiday season! I can remember when my granny first taught me to play rummy I was probably 7 and I still love playing with her today! I can not wait to show off these awesome sets at Thanksgiving! I broke out my first set this weekend and we enjoyed a fun filled friendly game of 5 car draw! The only thing better than a card game here in Eastern KY is a card game with a nice adult beverage. I love drinking Strawberry Daquiri's and playing cards with my girlfriends. Bycicle Playing Cards bring back so many great memories for me. I am so glad to be able to share Bycicle Cards with my fans. Check out all the styles they have to offer and any information you need on how to play cards here on Bycicle website.
