Classical music has been a timeless component of history and culture. However, many kids don’t get the exposure they should to this genre of music. How great would it be if your children could have this experience at their fingertips?

Pet Dog Cat Training Leash Heavy Duty Braided Lead for Small, Medium and Large Dogs 4ft /5ft /6ft Long


Looking for a durable short training leash for your dog? The Whiteleopard Pet Dog Cat Training Leash is a good training leash. It is very short so I would only recommend for training. It is a bit short for every day walks. I like that the leash is strong and seems sturdy.  The leash is braided leather, and the clamp is a really heavy duty one. I think it depends on the size of dog on which leash you will receive. The one I received is best for a small/medium dog.  It is 4 ft. I think next time I would order the next size up which is 5 ft. It is also available in 6 ft.  It is easy to use and I do recommend!

Another Astonishing Marvel Fantasy – X-Men: Apocalypse


The new X-Men: Apocalypse comes out May 27 and, according to our reporters, is worth the wait. The storyline follows Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe who has amassed the powers of many other mutants, becomes immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Morgan B. comments, “There are so many eye candy moments and graphics that are truly some of best that I have ever seen. I need to watch this movie again just to catch them all. They are so amazing. Every minute is shock and awe.” See her full review below.
X-Men: Apocalypse
By Morgan Bertsch, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 11

Marvel has come out with another astonishing film, X-Men: Apocalypse. After the first five minutes of the movie, I wanted to yell, “Rewind it!” I want to see that again.
There are so many eye candy moments and graphics that are truly some of best that I have ever seen. I need to watch this movie again just to catch them all. They are so amazing. Every minute is shock and awe. The stunts are fabulous and make all the mutants’ super powers come to life. Mind boggling graphics and mouth dropping stunts, now that is what I call a movie.
The story line starts in ancient Egypt when the first-ever mutant thinks he is a God because he possesses super strong powers. Apocalypse thinks he is the ruler of the world. He can transfer his conscience into other mutants and gain their powers, which enable him to live forever. He believes that the world that is ruled by the weak should be ruled by the strong. This is why he decides that he will start an apocalypse and the weak will die and the strong will live. Apocalypse plans to rule the entire world.
My favorite character and scene is the moment when Quicksilver saves as many students as he can from death using his power of super-fast speed. I laughed during this scene because he ate pizza at the same time he was rescuing them. And, of course, the slow motion graphics are stupendous.
My favorite character, because I am a girl and believe in girl power, has to be Jennifer Lawrence who plays Mystique. Her costume is awesomely cool. Her character is a strong, believable leader who stands by her principles. She also has my favorite super power, transforming herself into other people.
On the other hand, I do love Evan Peters who plays Quicksilver who is absolutely dreamy. I have a huge crush on this humorous, adorable, dreamy gamer. He is a snazzy dresser. Kudos to the custom designers and make-up artists who help bring his character credibility. Magneto is at his best when he is angry and we gain insight into just how deep his issues go. Ben Hardy as The Angel is simply stunning. I want his wings, both sets. They are simply amazing. In this film, we meet some new characters and an abundance of super powers, which makes you wonder which one would be right for you. There are guest appearances, which brought applause and cheers from the audience at my screening. Sorry, no spoilers. I can’t tell you more than that.
The story line answers many questions about the origin of the X-Men and how they became who they are. It answers many questions, which have arisen from previous X-Men movies.
I recommend this film for ages 10 to 18 because the story line is too complicated for younger audiences and there is a fair amount of scary violence. Oftentimes the characters are in great peril and danger. I rate this film give 5 out of 5 ever changing mutant stars. It opens in theaters May 27 so, if you like action and adventure, comic-book based films, be sure to check it out.


Itch Season is here! Is Your Family Covered? Earth’s Care Anti-Itch 1 oz Sport Tube is a must-have for the Summer!

unnamed (1)

Common spring and summer conditions like bug bites and rashes are here! Unfortunately, many OTC products use artificial active ingredients to combat minor skin issues. This summer, environmentally conscious consumers can take a natural and portable approach to their summertime skin care with the Earth’s Care Anti-Itch 1 oz Sport Tube.


The convenient new size builds on the success of Earth’s Care’s 2.4 oz Anti-Itch product.

With the average traveler, backpacker and sports enthusiast concerned about weight and bulk when packing, the new 1 oz Anti-Itch Cream provides portable relief from minor skin problems such as insect bites, rashes caused by plants, sunburn, and minor cuts and scrapes.


Earth’s Care proprietary Anti-Itch Cream uses ingredients sourced from nature, including camphor, menthol and Almond Oil.  Both menthol and camphor have been proven to alleviate itching: menthol provides a dual cooling/warming effect while camphor soothes the itchy area. Both work quickly and naturally to desensitize sensory nerves so the itch sensation is suppressed. The products are free of petrolatum, artificial colors or fragrances, parabens and phthalates.

I received samples and this is a Must-Have for Summer beach bags and summer outings! I have tried it on insect bites too and it really works well! I highly recommend!

More info:

Earth’s Care Natural Products, Inc. is a manufacturer of over-the-counter (OTC) products with virtually all “sourced from nature” ingredients that match many mainstream OTC drugs for comparable indications. Their Anti-Itch cream is ideal for combating minor skin irritations without the steroids and other chemical active ingredients found in typical OTC anti-itch medications.
