What I think

These bottles are ridiculously adorable.  I just love them. They are about the size of a single serve milk bottle you would buy at any store. So they fit in little hands easily. The kids love them and look so cute drinking out of them. The bottles are made from a thick glass, so I feel safer letting the kids use them because they are less likely to shatter if dropped. They came with some cute straws that fit that vintage look, the straws are paper though so you will want to find a source to get more. I am fairly certain you can find reusable milk caps for these to make them into lunch box bottles too. I love the way they look and they really fit with the country chic vintage vibe that is so popular right now.

So flipping cute!
So flipping cute!

I think these look awesome as is, but you could put chalkboard labels on them and maybe a jute bow and use them for a country party. I have just the two kids but then I have my two kids I do care for here alot so having four of these works for us. I may do the labels just so they can tell their drinks apart. They all want to use these at lunch every day.  So this is a definite DO, as they are requested EVERY SINGLE DAY! 🙂

What I think

I enjoyed testing these brushes out. The kids were all more than happy to help with that. So we had a limited color palate to use and had to get creative. I got out the face paints and the brushes and some paper towels and the kiddos picked out what they wanted.

The tiny person was easiest he just wanted some balloons. So we got to work. Now the face paint kit I used is like a Halloween monster man kit so it is the hard thick stuff not true face paint. This made me worry that I wouldn’t be able to get a good idea of the brushes abilities.  I worried for nothing. The fact that it was a bit harder to get started did not affect how well the brushes worked at all.

I had to work the paint a bit to get it easier to spread and after that it wasn’t so bad at all. The brushes worked very well. They were all very soft and did not irritate the kids in any way.

There was no problem with shedding bristles. Not on the kids skin, nor in the paint and for sure not when I was wiping the paint off with paper towels. I really gave some good tugs too. Shedding bristles is a pet peeve of mine so it is one thing I rigorously test out on any kind of paint brush.

The selection of brushes is a great beginner or standalone kit. You have the perfect sizes and shapes to meet all the needs. From some thick brushes for filling in large spaces to a very fine tip for delicate lines. These will of course work better with better face paints but they did a great job with what I had on hand too.

This company is great too and they want you to love your product so they offer a lifetime satisfaction guarantee. That is pretty awesome. We obviously had a great time, so this goes in the DO column.

With all the love I can muster on a Monday morning,

Backyard fun, thumbs up!
Little Dude says backyard fun, thumbs up!

And now for the fun part!! I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review, this is that honest opinion.

When I ordered this product, we were very excited for it to come. Little Dude likes to doodle and this looked so fun. So we trooped outside with my friends kiddos and tested these bad boys out. I figured since they were a form of chalk that they would be fine on the sidewalk.

We did learn that they can make a much prettier picture on smooth surfaces. The rough concrete also could shred the tips if pressed to hard. So we moved to the smoother part of the walk, my steps.

This section worked much better. The flow was smooth and our little artists were able to get more creative and add more depth to their work. Next Little Dude asked me to put his favorite, a creeper from Minecraft, on his bedroom window. So we tried that out and it was fun too.

We all agreed there were a couple things we would change about this product. We really wanted a black one and the caps are designed in a way that if you do not put them on carefully, they can damage the tips. So we would love to see that changed so that the younger kids with less dexterity won’t have as much trouble recapping them.

So the basics are, this item is a ton of fun. The kids loved them. They were easy to prime and the color flowed out well. The reversible nib made it so they could be more precise or broad, depending on what they wanted. They clean up as easy as chalk but are much more versatile. Little dude and his friends all agree with me that this is a great product.

So we say in unison, this is a do!

Always, (oh that one brought on the HP feels in this geek girl)

Chef Buddy Perfect Picnic Pop-Up Food Covers and Buffet, Set of 3

Chef Buddy Perfect Picnic Pop-Up Food Covers and Buffet, Set of 3

So here it is, our first posted review!!!! Yay!!  Ok, Moving on.

I ordered this for my son, Big Dudes, birthday party. I thought the blow up bar would be perfect to hold our food items that needed to be chilled on top of ice. I was so excited to find an inflatable buffet that came with pop up covers to keep the bugs out of the food. My big mistake was not paying attention to the dimensions.

So, the product arrives and I did not bother to open it prior to the party. This was mistake number two. I usually am much better at planning things I swear.

The day of the party, we head over to the park we rented a spot at. I start to unload and set up and that is when I finally open this product. Out pop the three mesh food covers. They are perfect. Three different sizes but even the smallest is quite large. We could have easily fit a regular round layer cake under any of them.

This is where I got a little disappointed. I pulled out the inflatable buffet and start to blow it up. It doesn’t take long and I have it laid out on the counter. Sadly, I seriously overestimated the size. This however was all my fault and does not reflect on my review of the product. The amazon listing did in fact state the dimensions are 39.5 inches long by 18 wide and you have to take out the few inches the rim take up as well. So, the usable space was not what I had pictured.

However, It did hold up well. The product is made from a durable material. We had no problem with leaks or punctures. We filled it with ice and food and enjoyed our party.  So basically my only problem was I didn’t order two.

This product is definitely a do!

5 out of 5 stars.
