BeginAgain Toys

Free For All received  sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own! No financial compensation was received.

Are you looking for the perfect Easter gift? Look no further BeginAgain Toy's has everything you could possibly imagine. I really love that BeginAgain has a wide selection of wooden toys and all their toys are very durably made!

We were able to try the Dive Pals Dunk and Dive Set. I loved the durable plastic they are made of! What could be better for bath and pool fun than a master diver accompanied by his pals, a shark & octopus? My kids have hours of fun with these adorable characters made from all natural rubber. They just dunk & dive! Large openings help toys to dry thoroughly, preventing black mold build up.
They are dishwasher safe for easy clean up! Cute characters help build imaginative, story-telling skills for kids. Let them play pretend again and again!

Sierra my youngest daughter loves cooking so the Alphabites A-Z Puzzle was perfect for her! It isn't just a great wooden puzzle but an actual cooking range. It even includes a little spatula to flip the food while cooking on the stove top built in the puzzle box. 

I love how BeginAgain makes the most of every part of this puzzle. The skillet and stove built into the wooden puzzle box and the puzzle pieces to cook with. It is the perfect puzzle for the little budding chef!  This alphabet puzzle serves up learning and role-play fun. Each of the 26 puzzle pieces is a food, condiment or cooking tool, and each is labeled with its full name. From "Apple" to "Zucchini," kids can play with their food and learn letters too! Made from eco-friendly rubber wood with non-toxic, child-safe stains,

Candy Japan Easter Gift Guide Review

Free For All received  sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own! No financial compensation was received.

Try something out of this world? Well at least out of this country! Candy Japan offers a twice monthly subscription box so you can experience tastes from Japan. Japan is known for its funky and unique candies like the different Kit Kat flavors. I tried Key Lime Pie Kit Kats and they were amazing! Candy Japan brings you Japan's candies in a monthly subscription box. Try all the latest and newest Japanese candies every month! Best of all it is priced low and delivered right to your door. You can also cancel anytime. 

What do you typically get in a box?

Each month Candy Japan sends you two boxes of candy, so you'll get surprises often. The amount of items in each box varies based on how big the candies are, but usually the two boxes will have a total of 3 - 6 items with a typical total weight around 500 grams (about 1 pound).

My kids loved our box this time! They have candies we have never seen let alone tried. It is a really different experience and would make a great gift. Especially great for Easter basket stuffers as the candies are so unique and something you sure won't find here. Our favorite was the box to make your own candies. It came with three tubes strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate and a mold. You mold and create your own little candy pieces in just a few steps. It was very simple, easy and fun for the kids. 

Make sure you check out Candy Japan for Easter or anytime. Purchase one subscription anytime for two monthly shipments for only $29 and free shipping! You can purchase below and follow on social media below:

Mukikim Easter Gift Guide Review

Free For All received  sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own! No financial compensation was received.

With Easter quickly approaching I wanted to introduce you to my newest wonderful toy manufacturer! Mukikim prides itself on things that make you smile and their new toy lines do just that! We got to try out toys from the Construct A Truck, spyX and Mini Flyer lines!

Just like most boys my two sons love anything that flies! I was so excited when they got to try the mini flyer! They have several different fun designs! We tried out the jokey face design and I loved the ease and simplicity with which my kids could fly the mini flyer. It isn't one of those flying contraptions you can barely steer and end up crashing everywhere. The mini flyer's sensors detect when it is ready to hit the ground and it basically stays in the air and hovers while you steer. It is fun, simple and easy for kids to operate! Mine really enjoyed the mini flyer.

The spyX line of toys includes anything and everything you can imagine for the budding little spy. My sons really enjoy walkie talkies so they wanted to try the spyX Walkie Talkie out. They have a really nice range and the audio is very clear. My boys like playing hide and go seek with their walkie talkies.

The Construct A Truck line is the most educational toy in my opinion that Mukikim offers. Kids can actually break down and reconstruct their own trucks with Construct A Trucks. It is great for imaginative little minds! My boys play with their Construct A Truck most I think mainly because it is so hands on.

Mukikim has several other lines of toys. Be sure to stop by Mukikim when shopping for Easter this year and follow them on social media below:

I really wanted Sierra to stand out for Easter and be the cute baby everyone talked about!

I love the Patucos Casual Knitted Baby Dress in camel and beige colors. The dress is fitted at the top but stretchy with beautiful lace overlaid sleeves and skirt. Their is a ribbon that runs through the waist making the fit look even nicer. My two year old looks like a petite little doll in her dress. I am so excited to see everyone's Easter reaction! To top things off I paired the dress with the Classic T Strap Mary Janes in white. The strap is decorative and easy to get on and off of Sierra making dressing simple and easy. These are the classic shoes I wore as a baby. They are back and in popular demand. I love seeing Sierra in some of the same styles I wore as a child. The dress includes a lovely hair bow that is a perfect match with her shoes and dress.

Crayola Easter Gift Guide Review

Free For All received samples to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own.

This Easter don't forget to check out everything Crayola has to offer! Crayola is always our go to brand for Easter basket stuffers they have chalk, paint, crayons just about anything you can imagine to fill a basket! It is the first brand I think of when shopping for kids gifts! 

When I think Easter I always think outdoors! Chalk is one of the first things that comes to my mind because kids can decorate the whole outdoors with chalk. This year we tried the Crayola new Frozen and  Despicable Me Chalk Shapes! What child doesn't love these iconic characters. They are perfect for getting the creative juices flowing! The 64 Count Ultimate Sidewalk Chalk Collection has every color in the rainbow and more!

The one thing I asked for from Crayola that really sparked my interest was the Rainbow Rake. I wasn't disappointed. It was just as great as I imagined. My two year old loves to play with the boys but hasn't really developed the dexterity yet to hold chalk for as long as the boys. With the Rainbow Rake she goes around making design after design and can play with chalk just as much as the big kids!

Crayola is a brand I grew up with and to me it is iconic. I want my kids to enjoy the same fun I had with Crayola product's as a child and I want your kids to enjoy Crayola also. Crayola is truly the perfect Easter basket stuffer for kids! So make sure you are following Crayola on social media below to stay up to date on contests, coupons, new products, discounts and so much more!

Great Pretender's Easter Gift Guide Review

Easter is one of the holidays we go all out for! Almost as big as Christmas! This year we got to try Great Pretenders. My daughter especially loves dressing up and so do my boys. It's the one "play time" activity that never fails to keep their attention. They have a huge toy trunk full of Super Heroes, cops, firemen, Star Wars characters and so many more. 

Check out The Great Pretenders Story:

Once upon a time, there was a mom troubled by the lack fun and imaginative toys for her children. Baffled by this, she set out on her ambitious journey to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child's imagination. Fast forward; her endeavors transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children.

We at Great Pretenders believe that “dress-up” is so much more than just putting on a costume, as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio says:

“Pretend play is not just great fun. It’s the way kids develop imagination and creative thinking skills and try out being big and powerful. Pretending also brings the world down to the child’s size and understanding. It’s a way to develop communication skills and an outlet for expressing feelings and fears.”

The Great Pretenders Commitment:
At Great Pretenders, we are constantly on the hunt for great fabrics, trims and findings which can be transformed into inspiring pretend-play toys for children. Not only do we aim to provide the best value for your dollar, we strive to be as innovative as possible in what we make. For example, all of our products are easy-care and with maximum sizing flexibility. We also also make great strides on the creative end – our popular reversible costumes & capes are fan-favorites and have won several acclaimed toy awards.

For 2013, we completely redesigned our brand from top to bottom. First off, we have launched this new website to make your shopping experience fun and enjoyable. Along with this are new graphics that have greatly enhanced the look and feel of our products which can be found on our meticulously designed packaging. And perhaps most important of all, there are many great additions to the product range, like a complete line of Great Pretenders jewelry and accessories!

Great Pretenders truly wants your children to enjoy imaginative, fun, dress up play. They allow kids to make their dreams come true; allowing them to become that princess or superhero they dream of! I fell in love with all of the coloring and design your own items Great Pretender's has! We tried the Colour A Princess Fairy Box, Colour An Apron, Colour A Skirt all of which are items your child can personalize on their own. My daughter loves them! Each set comes with markers so your child can decorate however they like! I loved the apron most as my daughter really enjoys cooking with me. She not only got to cook with me but we also designed her a one of a king apron!

My daughter really enjoys books and any type of little animal so I was so excited when we got to try the Mini Meiya the Mouse Gift Set! The mouse is actually made of a plastic fac and then the body is cloth. It makes a perfect night time cuddle for Sierra my daughter. She loves reading her little book and snuggling her mouse. 
The last thing we tried was the Butterfly Dress Doll Outfit. My daughter has so many dolls and none of them have clothes. Great Pretender's also has matching outfits for your daughter so she can match her doll! I love this outfit it is whimsical and great for dolls. It even includes butterfly wings!

You can check out more from Great Pretenders below or follow the link to check out all of the amazing products that are perfect for Easter. Whether you're looking for a birthday gift, a Holiday gift or  just something fun for imaginative play, you can find it all on Great Pretenders.

Knot Genie Detangling Brush Easter Gift Guide Review

Free For All received a sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received.

Do you struggle with hair brushing time with your little one? It is always a dreaded war here in my household with my two year old. We have tried detangling sprays, being easy when we brush everything you can imagine! Nothing seemed to help! I saw Knot Genie and wondered could this brush really be the answer? Knot Genie isn't a miracle worker but it does make brushing so much easier and less painful for my little one. Which is great because our next option was cutting her gorgeous hair and I really didn't want to do that.

Knot Genie just makes sense! The brush is hand held so my daughter can brush mostly herself the bristles are flexible and softer causing less pulling and pain. My daughter tried it herself first and saw she could brush with the Knot Genie. It was something new and different for her. She loves it. The Knot Genie offers a 100 percent satisfaction back guarantee. There is even a Knot Genie for pets!

Make sure to check out Knot Genie with Easter so close this would be a perfect basket stuffer! Also be sure to follow Knot Genie on social media below:
