Our Generation Doll Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I know a lot of little girls this Christmas are asking Santa for a doll. I know that my little girl who is five years old is in love with dolls. As a mother I am always looking for the best ones out there and that are appropriate for my daughter. When I came across Our Generation Dolls I was impressed with the message that their collection gives young girls. 

Our Generation has a wide variety of dolls. They have a regular collection, deluxe dolls, specialty dolls, hair play dolls, and retro dolls. It very hard to choose from because there are so many cute choices that would make any little girl happy.

We were able to review Coral from the deluxe doll collection. I was not sure what to expect when we received her because I never had an Our Generation Doll before. When she came in the mail I will admit she was pretty decent size and well packed in her box. On the box it showed the doll and what she came with. When we unboxed Coral she was in a plastic wrapping so she was protected during her travel. I also noticed that she had one around her head to keep her hair nice during shipping. When we took her out she had a suffer outfit which is very cute. What I also like is you can change the outfit if you like to and it came with a change of clothes. She also came with flip flops which are very cute also. I knew she came with a surf board but was not aware that it was actually that big. It also comes with a string on the surf board that you can attach to her foot. It makes it more realistic. 

What really sells this doll for me is that she comes with accessories. Which many other dolls do not or you have to pay for the extras. We took another little bag out of the box and it had a snorkel and goggles. I really like the set and think the doll look cute with the snorkel and goggles. Then there was another little bag in the box with Corals accessories and her book. Which my daughter loves reading the books. In the picture on the side or a little below shows all the accessories that come with Coral. It comes with snorkel kit and flippers. Another outfit and a hat. 

I was quite impressed with the doll quality. It was made well and will last a long time. It does bend which is good. All the accessories where easy to put on Coral and had no problems with them. The book is fantastic and tells her story. Overall I would highly recommend this collection for your little one. Overall you can't go wrong the doll looks amazing and she is reasonable price with accessories. I would check out your local Target and pick one of these amazing dolls up now before it is to late.

his year, let the experts at Safety 1st make this season a little less stressful.

6 tips for holiday travel with kids
By the experts at Safety 1st

Traveling with kids is no easy task. Parents should get a medal for pulling it off successfully! Here are some of Safety 1st’s tips for doing just that: 

Prepare beyond packing the suitcase
1.    Prepare your child – Holiday parties can cause sensory overload for young children. It’s good to talk about the upcoming trip days, even weeks, in advance. Show photos of family members or friends your child has not met yet. This way, the new face may not seem so unfamiliar.

2.    Prepare the guest room – If your child will be sleeping in a Play Yard during the trip, use it for bed or nap time the entire week before. This will help him or her get used to a new sleep environment. 

3.    Keep tabs on your explorer – In any home, sharp corners are inevitable. Soften the edges of an unfamiliar house with Foam Edge Protectors or an Expandable Table Edge Bumper. The Lift, Lock & Swing Gate is great for blocking off new staircases that your little one may want to venture down

Time to hit the road! 
4.    Before you head out - check in with a local Child Passenger Safety Technician to ensure your child’s seat is installed correctly. You can visit a local police station, fire station, AAA office or Safe Kids Chapter for guidance.

5.    On the road - The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises children remain rear facing until the age of two. According to a study in the Journal of Injury Prevention children under the age of two are 75 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. For older children, the AAP recommends they ride in boosters until the age of 12 or are 57 inches tall. Booster seats reduce injury risk by 59% compared to just seat belts alone.
6.    In the skies - If you are flying, check to make sure your car seat is FAA certified. If it’s not clearly labeled contact the manufacturer. The Safety 1st Store ‘n Go Booster can hold your child’s travel essentials and it’s FAA certified.

PlaSmart Magic Canvas (Holiday Guide 2015)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I have a preschooler at home and sometimes I dread when she takes out her markers and paper because she gets it absolutely everywhere. She tries to be so good with them but she has accidents and marks something.

When I found this product from PlaSmart Toys I knew that it would be the perfect match for her. The Magic Canvas is for children ages 12 months and up. This canvas features a double sided canvas and comes with one stylus. What is so unique with this product is that you fill up the stylus with water. After filling it up your child can color on the Magic Canvas. Than when your child does that magic colors will appear on it. How neat is that? Very simple to use with no hard work. All you do is fill it up and have a lot of fun drawing. I can actually let my daughter sit alone and doodle without watching her every move. This toy brings a lot of fun, creativity and no mess which every mom loves. You can find this product on and this would make a great holiday gift!
