Review: Lottie Doll

  

 Toys that keep my children's imaginations going strong are toys I adore. I also love, love, LOVE toys that are age appropriate. Why make children grow up faster then they need to? When I found out about Lottie, a doll based on 18th months of research working with girls, parents, retailers, industry experts, child psychologists and child nutrition experts I was intrigued. 100 action points were incorporated into Lottie's development. Three of the most strong points were;

  • Girls being concerned by body image from a young age
  • Girls being prematurely sexualised
  • Girls missing out on their childhood
To address these issues, Lottie has been based on the scientific proportions of a 9 year old child, with the exception of her head (which has been increased to accommodate hair play). Lottie does not wear jewelry, makeup or high heels. Lottie can stand on her own two feet, has vibrants colors on her clothing and are mostly activity based. All clothing is in line with those of a 9 year old instead of an adult. Lottie wears pretty dresses and hard-wearing clothes for outdoors play. Lottie allows girls to be girls and enjoy their childhood.
Lottie’s motto is ‘Be bold, be brave, be you’.

About Lottie      Launched in August 2012, Lottie™ is a new, innovative doll for children aged 3- 9. Since her debut, Lottie has won 19 awards in the USA, Canada and UK, including 5 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Awards, generated international press coverage and been the beneficiary of positive parent and blogger reviews. Lottie is now on sale in 30 countries.
Lottie is fun and educational; an affordable, aspirational ‘pro girl’ doll.

Lottie's Key Features

  • Child-Like Body-Lottie’s body is based on the average proportions of a 9 year old girl, developed alongside academics in the areas of child psychology and nutrition. Lottie represents a healthy view on body image, and is a positive role model.
  • Age Appropriate-Lottie is all about doing many of the activities a real child her age would do, and is not concerned with growing up too quickly. Lottie doesn’t wear make-up, high-heels or jewellery.
  • Ethnically Diverse-Lottie dolls come in a range of diverse eye, hair and skin colours.
  • Relatable-Lottie wears the kind of clothes that kids wear in real-life, whether that is
    pretty party dresses, hard-wearing clothes and boots to get muddy outdoors, sportswear or fun dress-up costumes! Lottie is doing all the activities that ‘real’ kids do; be they ‘girly’ activities like ballet, or imaginary tea parties, getting muddy outdoors, being sporty and active, as well as robot- building projects, to stargazing and fossil-hunting. Imaginative dress-up play too, whether as a Queen or a pirate or superhero. Lottie represents all the positive, different facets of childhood, without limitation.
  • Tactile Fabric and Hair-Lottie’s hair is made from premium quality Saran, which has a wax component and a silky texture which means it does not tangle or knot. Lottie’s clothing is composed of tactile fabric, with great attention to detail, and has Velcro fastenings, easy to dress and undress.
  • Bendable Knees-Lottie encourages children to be active and outdoorsy, she has bendable knees, and ball socket hips and arms. Lottie’s head can move from side to side, and Lottie can do the splits, all of which help for gymnastics, karate and playing with friends.
  • She can stand on her own-She’s 18cm tall, and can stand on her own two feet

My Review
   I was sent an Autumn Leaves Lottie doll as well as Biscuit the Beagle Dog accessory set to review. Autumn Leaves Lottie comes wrapped in a coat, scarf and hat. Lottie's full outfit includes boots, a long sleeved t-shirt with a removable patch, a corduroy skirt and striped leggings. Lottie loves to explore with her dog Biscuit the Beagle and together they love to play in the leaves and get muddy on their outdoor explorations. Biscuit the Beagle accessory set comes  with Biscuit the Beagle Dog figure (who can be dressed in different outfits), a dog bag for Lottie to carry Biscuit in, leash, outfit, dog bed, bone and drinking bowl. I absolutely love that Lottie is a doll made for little girls-the doll doesn't dress provocatively, wear makeup or have an unrealistic body frame. In all there are thirteen different Lottie dolls to collect. My daughter absolutely loves her Lottie Doll and Biscuit the Beagle Dog. It is so fun to see her pretend and use her imagination with the doll. My three year old son even loves Lottie--even though his sister doesn't appreciate him stealing the doll when she is at school. I am thinking of purchasing a Finn doll for him. I am so glad that my daughter has a doll that is made for her age group, that dresses appropriately and is a "pro girl" doll. If you have a girl that loves dolls I highly recommend checking out Lottie.

Post: Celebrate the Holidays with BJ's Wholesale Club


   I have a confession to make; Earlier this week I stepped into a BJ's Wholesale Club for the first time in my life. I really didn't know what to expect--but the idea I had concocted in my mind was a warehouse full of file cabinets, conference tables and other office items. I was ecstatic when I walked in to discover a huge warehouse full of delicious and fresh food, packaged grocery items, brand name clothing, brand name shoes, DVDs, toys, the latest gadgets, TV's, Cameras and SO much more.


  You know that feeling you get when you watch Charlie Bucket first see the huge chocolate room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? That was the feeling I got when I walked into BJ's.

My three year old son accompanied me as we walked around the warehouse. A huge outdoor Frosty the Snowman greeted us from atop a shelf singing his theme song. As we went down the aisles we found a huge roll of reversible Holiday wrapping paper (375 feet) that could definitely wrap all of our presents this year.Holiday wreathes, battery operated candles and a wide array of gifts for family, friends and acquaintances were shelved in the neatly organized aisles. We next came upon my son's favorite aisle-The Toys!  I was really surprised to find so many amazing and popular toys available at BJ's (and for such low costs!). 

The difference between BJ's Wholesale Club and it's competitors is really clear to see. BJ's carries the MOST product variety of any other wholesale club with more than 7,500 items, including smaller packaged staples in addition to bulk sizes. So if you need a gallon of milk-BJ's has it. Don't want to buy ten bags of potato chips? At BJ's you can just go home with one bag!  BJ's is also the only wholesale club to accept all manufacturers' coupons in addition to in-club coupons and for greater convenience, offers the MOST payment options including Apple Pay and EBT. 

BJ's is the perfect place to shop for all of your Holiday shopping because not only can you get all of your food shopping done there you can also get your gifts, decor, clothing, gadgets and wrapping all in the same place! Talk about a stress free Holidays! 

BJ's Wholesale Club has put together a list of the top 10 Toys for this Holiday Season to help those buying for kid's to get the latest and greatest toys;

1. KidKraft Super Expressway Train Set and Table
2. Disney Frozen Sing and Swing Olaf
3. B Kids Giraffe Fun Station
4. Disney Large Plush
5. LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra Super Bundle
6. Transformers Age of Extinction Stomp and Chomp Grimlock
7. Squishy Sand
8. Spirograph
9. Doc McStuffins Check up Set (Lambie or Stuffy)
10. Disco Party CD+Karaoke (Hello Kitty or Monter High)

With the help of my kids I decided to put one of the items on BJ's top Toys to the test. We decided to test out the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra Super Bundle. The LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra Super Bundle comes with everything you need to get started using the LeapPad Ultra (plus more!). The LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra comes with a secure browser (Wi-Fi with Kid-Safe web), a high resolution 7" backlit resistive touchscreen (making it easy to little fingers to use the controls.   Provided in the Bundle is;

  •  A LeapPad Ultra Learning Tablet with a Green, LeapPad Ultra Gel Skin to protect the LeapPad Ultra from damage. 
  • $30 Digital Download Card to download LeapFrog Games/Books/Music and more!
  • 8 GB of on-board memory which holds up to 40,000 photos/140 Game Apps
  • The battery is rechargeable (which means NO more batteries!)
  • Front and Back cameras
  • A cord to charge the LeapPad Ultra and a cord to connect it to your computer using USB.
  • LeapPad Ultra works with LeapFrog's library of 800+ educational apps, games, eBooks, videos, music and more.
  • LeapPad Ultra includes 11 apps (onboard and downloadable): Photo Fun Ultra, Art Studio Ultra, Pet Pad Party, Utility Suite, Pet Chat and more.
Upon opening the box I was a bit nervous that the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra might be a bit difficult to set up. Thankfully it wasn't and I had it up and running within a number of minutes. When first turned on the LeapPad Ultra asks your location, name of your children, their ages, and if you currently have a LeapFrog account. After answering all the questions it sets different accounts for each of your children. This for me is a lifesaver because both of my children
become concerned if their game progress is being erased by the other--with the LeapPad Ultra that is never the case. My kid's love the many apps that come preloaded on the LeapPad Ultra. Pet Pad Party was one of their favorites where they can create their own pet, feed it, wash it and play games with it. My son created his own green robot and my daughter created her cat. They love checking up on their petsfrom time to time to see what their pets need. It is a fun and easy way to teach them a bit of responsibility. Using the bundles included $30 Digital Download Card I was able to browse through LeapFrog's large variety of games, music and e-books. I was surprised to find that you can purchase digital albums for your children to listen to through the LeapPad Ultra such as Frozen and Mary Poppins. After browsing my children decided to get two fun and educational games; Disney Pixar Cars 2 and My Little Pony; Friendship is Magic. Both games teach mathematic skills through a series of different games featuring my kids favorite characters. 

I love that the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra not only teaches reading, writing, math, science, history and other skills but also does wonders for hand/eye coordination. 

A top 10 toy? Yes, BJ's Wholesale has picked a winner! My kids absolutely adore their LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra. They actually love taking turns and watching the other play. WHAT? Peace on earth? No, but at least peace in my home!

Oh and remember how I told you that BJ's Wholesale Club carries delicious and fresh food? I tried their Coconut Cake and let me tell you--it was SO good! They also carry Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake in the freezer section! I can't wait to shop for my Holiday meals at BJ's--everyone will be so impressed and I will be saving lots of money! For example; See that meal in the picture? All items were purchased a BJ's for WAY less than what you would pay at a regular grocery store! Let me just say that steak/mozzarella cheese/spinach pinwheel was delicious!

Make sure you head on over to your local BJ's Wholesale Club to see all they have to offer. Right now BJ's is offering a FREE 60 day Membership to join click here. If you love BJ's Wholesale Club as much as I do you will definitely be purchasing a year membership after your sixty day one runs out!

Review: Agraria Home



  I am a candle-a-holic. There I said it. I love. love. love. candles. Being a candle lover I have tried hundreds (yes, hundreds) of candles from different companies. I have been on the lookout to find my favorite candle. That my friends is no easy task. First, the candle must smell AMAZING...not artificial, not too sweet or too spicy...it has to be just right. Second, the candle must make the room smell beautifully-yet, it must not smell so strong that you feel sick. Third, it must be beautiful both the candle itself and its packaging. 


A bit about Agraria

    Many fans of Agraria have fond memories dating back to 1970 of discovering the Taylor Street boutique on Nob Hill. The Taylor Street boutique was an eclectic mix of antiques, books and one-of-a-kind gifts,...oh, and of course Agraria potpourri, candles, incense, sachets and bath and body products. As interior designers, Maurice and Stanford believed that "no great house is ever completely decorated until it has its most important decorative accessory-home fragrance."

  The first two products-Bitter Orange Potpourri and the Balsam Perfume Candle were designed to combine the spicy citrus of bitter orange and the sweet woody notes of the balsam. Doing so creates an even richer, mysterious and more unique fragrance experience. The founders often said "they mix and mingle marvelously."

Geraldine Stutz, the legendary President of New York's Henri Bendel, believed that "the way a house smells is one of the most important elements in decorating." When she put Agraria at the front door in 1974, The New York Times referred to it as "Park Avenue Potpourri."

As the doors opened and closed all day long, the luxurious scent of Bitter Orange poured out onto the street luring the well-helped clientele inside. Many years later, Vogue magazine quoted Michael Kors: "I thought 57th street was heaven. I smelled the Agraria potpourri wafting out of Henri Bendel, but I just though the street smelled good." In 1985, Agraria moved to the front door of Bergdorf Goodman.

Today you can find Agraria in the finest department stores and gift shops around the world...from San Francisco to Shanghai, Miami to Milan, Dublin to Dubai, and London to Los Angeles.


My Review
   Ladies and Gentleman, I can say that I have found the perfect candle. Agraria Home Crystal Cane Perfume Candle in Bitter Orange is the one. This candle smells absolutely divine-imagine clove and orange combining itself into a smell so decedent and divine that it makes you swoon. That for me is the perfect scent. When lit the candle burns clean and makes the room smell amazing. The beautiful creamy orange colored candle is encased in a gorgeous crystal holder and topped with a silver plated lid containing the Agraria crest.  All Agraria candles are made of a special blend of vegetable-based premium soft waxes. The burn time is approx. 25 hours.

I would love to get a few more items from Agraria under the tree this Christmas....(hint, hint!).

Review: Schoola



Launched in San Francisco in 2012, Schoola was founded by Stacey Boyd, who is a parent, former teacher and a principal, to create new opportunities for raising money for school programs that foster children’s creativity.  She recognized that art, music, physical education, and foreign language are essential for kids; yet schools across the country are consistently experiencing funding cuts for these indispensable programs. Schoola provides a much needed solution— enabling parents to donate their children’s pre-loved clothes to the online store at Schoola.com and then 40% of each sale is donated to the school of their choice.  Over 300 schools all across the U.S. have received the proceeds from these clothes and Schoola continues to develop innovative ways to raise funds for a continuously expanding network of schools.


Schoola has clothes at a significantly reduced price from all sorts of brands, like Gap, Nike, the Children’s Place and Gymboree. You can read more about the featured programs and see the schools in your state that are benefitted here: http://www.schoola.com/schools. Additionally, you can browse all the clothes for girls here: http://www.schoola.com/stitch/shop/girls
 and boys here: 



My Review

  I was able to purchase two different items from Schoola. The process was extremely simple and fun. I love that I can choose the brands I want and the size I am looking for right away by using the search criteria that schoola has built into the website. I purchased a Madras Blazer for my son and a Madras dress for my daughter. Both items are in extremely good condition and smelled freshly laundered when they arrived. I can't wait for my daughter to wear the dress next summer and my son has already worn his blazer to church and gotten many compliments on it. Schoola is the perfect way to give back this Holiday Season. I have been compiling many clothes that my children can no longer wear and plan on donating them to Schoola.

Post: LG OLED the Ultimate Display at Best Buy


We may not have cable in our home but our TV is still incredibly important to all of us. We watch many movies together as a family and its fun to gather around a big screen to do so. Sadly, our old TV is on the outs. While shopping at Best Buy the other day my family and I happened to notice the LG OLED TV. You see, it is hard not to notice it-it is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point, the picture quality is unbelieveable and the Infinite Contrast ranges from the most blazing whites to the darkest blacks. The colors thanks to LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers incredibly bright and vibrant colors. Oh and that's not all, you can also find content faster thanks to webOS. I swear LG OLED is perfection.
I can write all I want about it here but the LG OLED is honestly something that needs to be experienced to be believed.  My husband was in awe as was I and our children. At Best Buy’s everyday price of $3,499.99 you save $500!  To learn more about LG OLED at Best Buy click here: LGOLEDatBestbuy.com

I have many holiday gifts from Best Buy on my wish list and the LG OLED is just one of them. What do you have on your Best Buy Holiday Wish List?

Review: l'asticot



         Where can you get high quality clothing that is kind to young skin and good to the environment? l'asticot that's where!

Clothes that last longer put less strain on the environment. L'asticot uses robust natural materials such as organic cotton jersey and organic will. All garments meet the Global Organic Textile Standard, the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers.  l'asticot refuses to use any chemicals in its dyes that could be hazardous to health. The colors in l'asticot's fabrics are kind to the most sensitive of skin. Laboratory tests have even shown that garments using potentially hazardous chemical-based dyes would have to be washed at least 11 times to reach the same skin tolerance levels as a l’asticot garment at the time of purchase. Need proof? So did l'asticot, so they got themselves Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification to be totally sure. The organic wool they use is also 100% natural, with no viscose yarn added. It is treated naturally and chemical hormones, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are strictly out of bounds. As well as keeping little ones warm while allowing their skin to breathe, it is hypoallergenic and acts as a humidity regulator.
 l’asticot clothes and accessories in a family-owned facility in Portugal that has the European Ecolabel (No PT/016/04). L'asticot knows exactly who makes their products and visits them regularly – so they also know exactly who designs and markets their goods in Switzerland and beyond. How many other kids’ clothes labels can tell you what football team the person who made your t-shirt supports?

My Review
    I was sent two garments from l'asticot to review; Kid Pyjama and Dress. Both items are beautifully made and incredibly comfortable (according to my kids!). My son loves to zip up his Kid Pyjamas all by himself and is proud of it. I love the nesting dolls fabric that covers the pajamas and lines the dress... it is so unique and adorable. The Dress is very versatile and can be worn with leggings, tights, a short sleeved shirt or a long sleeved shirt. Both items are incredibly soft and the colors are bright and vivid even after washing. It is difficult to find clothing that can keep up with my rough and tumble toddler boy and my active girl. I am so glad I found l'asticot because their clothes are some of the best quality clothing I have EVER reviewed. Beautifully made, beautifully designed, eco-concious, health-concious, comfortable, soft.....what more could you want?

Post: Don't let them go...Vote for your Favorite Frozen Fan!

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Kohl's. I received Kohl's gift cards to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating" 


   Last month I introduced you to the favorites in the Kohl's "Sing your "Frozen" Heart Out Contest". Kohl’s Department stores in partnership with Disney has announced that America now has the power to decide which “Frozen’ fans will be part of a Kohl’s Holiday commercial!

Nearly 4,000 “Frozen” fans submitted videos of themselves singing "Let it Go" for the Kohl's Sing Your "Frozen" Heart Out contest, and the favorites have been narrowed down to 10 finalists and you get to vote for your favorite.


All you need to do to vote is visit Disney.com/FrozenFriday to cast your vote. You have until November 23rd so act fast! On Sunday, November 23rd, the finalist with the most votes will have their performance air in the Kohl's Holiday commercial airing during the American Music Awards. Don't forget to vote for YOUR favorite and tune into the AMA's on November 23rd at 8pm ET on ABC to see if your FAVORITE performer WON!

After watching all of the videos my top pick for the "Sing your "Frozen" Heart Out Contest" is....

drum roll please.....

      Dax and Allayna!!!!!!

I love how they stayed true to the story of Frozen by dressing up as Elsa and Olaf and even having a cute winter wonderland background! There little dances were adorable to watch and I loved their beautiful little voices. 

I am looking forward to watching the AMA's and seeing who won. I am also hoping that Katy Perry wins for Artist of the year. I really like her music and who she is as a person and performer. 

With the Holidays right around the corner, there is tons of Disney "Frozen" merchandise available at Kohl's and Kohls.com. From Elsa and Anna dolls, an Elsa evening dress with matching tote to a Anna and Elsa snow globe...you can be sure to get your favorite holiday gifts for the Frozen fan in your life at Kohl's.  We decided to stop by Kohl's to take a look at some of the items available. I am loving the Disney/Kohl's Jumping Beans 'Frozen' line. I especially loved the little details on the girls dresses (seen in picture at right). Do you have anything special from the Disney's Frozen line at Kohl's that is on your Holiday list?
