I love The Moodsters because emotional well-being is so important!

The Moodsters has created a revolutionary category for kids with a mission to enhance children’s social and emotional development to help their (emotional intelligence) EQ!

The Moodsters Feelings Notebook and Feelings Crayon Set is a new creative tool to help kids express what they are feeling. This fun product includes:

  • Five jumbo feelings crayons, one representing each emotion,
  • A 50-sheet Feelings Notebook for kids to draw and color their feelings.

This one is just great for young children to express their feelings!

($11.99, Available at your local Target and ToysRus or and


I also love  The Moodsters Plush Characters and Sticker Activity Books are based on the five lovable Moodsters detectives – Coz, Lolly, Quigly, Razzy, and Snorf – that each personify an emotion that all children experience in their everyday lives including happiness, anger, love, sadness and fear. Additional details include:

  • Each plush character features sayings specific to the emotions they represent
  • Comes with a fun and educational activity book to learn about each feeling

How I wish they had been made when my son was much younger! I really love these plush characters and think that young kids will too!

Back-to-School also means new clothes and new haircuts! But, what about new Shampoos and Conditioners?

These ones are a must-try!




Fresh Monster believes there shouldn’t be any tradeoffs when it comes to keeping kids clean and safe. Natural products should work just as well as conventional ones—and safe, toxin-free formulas needn’t be a costly luxury. Created by moms who have worked on the front lines of haircare (and know firsthand about the harsh chemicals lurking in personal care products), Fresh Monster offers a full line of toxin-free haircare made just for kids. All-natural botanical extracts; safe, plant-based cleansers; and fragrances blended from all-natural ingredients, never from chemicals.

I received samples and I love that these do not have any harsh chemicals and that they work well and smell great! I also like that they have No sulfates, parabens, No phthalates, No dyes, No synthetic fragrances, No BPA, No soy or gluten. Even my 12-year-old son is fine with using this line up of products so it’s not just for little kids!
