Get Ready for Summer with ToySplash!


It’s almost summer! We’re on count down to summer vacation in my house! Two more weeks of school and then time to hit the pool and the beach! Looking for pool toys or Inflatable Tubes for the river? ToySplash has you covered! We received a really cool River Rat Tube that is just great for adults and older kids! It is made with 14-guage vinyl on top and 16 guage on the bottom. It is very durable and comfortable and even has an all around rope to keep a friend in tow. It is even on sale right now for $9.99 so you save $5.00.


They also have fun kids’-size pool goggles that feature colorful starfish, dolphins or fish. These are fun and colorful designs that protect your child’s eyes. We received the Starfish/yellow goggles and they are cool! They also come in Dolphin/pink and Fish/Blue. Great for children ages 4-10. They are also on sale now for $2.97!  These are only two of the fun products you can find at ToySplash! Check out their website to see all that they offer!

Self Disclosure: I received products to facilitate this review but any opinions are my own.


Celebration of America Music for Little People sponsored Feature


This patriotic collection is aimed at giving young listeners a taste of good old American music. The tracks are by folk and country artists, as well as a few orchestral and choral pieces. Some of the highlights are Nickel Creek’s peppy take on “Home on the Range,” the Weavers’ “This Land Is Your Land,” LeAnn Rimes’ “God Bless America,” and the Limeliters’ “America… More the Beautiful.” The tone of the record is reverent, yet light enough to keep young listeners interested. Perfect for the Fourth of July.My son and I received this fun CD and love it!
