Dinosaur T-Rex Room Guard with Motion Sensor

I received this product for free to review.
OK this toy is really cute! There are some things to keep in mind though... I tested this toy out because I have multiple children so I was wondering how much trouble this was going to cause. The batteries screw in which you know is kind of a pain but a huge bonus in the long run since the kids can't take out the batteries themselves. The projection works great, its easy to focus it with the arm of the T-rex and the on and off button is easy to use. Its cool that they store the disks inside the back of him too but the latch is a little hard for me to get open so I'm hoping they will be able to do it themselves. I know this toy is supposed to be mostly just standing there while you use the features of it but kids tend to actually play with toys and well one of mine likes being mean to his brothers so... The claws on the feet are a bit sharp and could stand to be filed a bit. And aside from the focus arm for the projector the jaw is the only other part that really moves. It can bite. Not just fingers inside the mouth either pretty much anything that you put it near. Of course the jaw doesn't move on its own and uncreative mean kids could simply use it as a blunt object but I also worry about potential Dino attack play potentially leaving real bite marks and bruising. The Dino alarm feature is pretty cool too it roars in a few different ways but keep in mind if the feature is turned on it will continuously make partial roaring sounds as long as the toy is in motion which could definitely get annoying fairly quickly. The disks also are a bit difficult to get in and out of the projection slot. I'm kinda going to have to recommend this for older children or those without siblings or as a great gift for someone else's kids. I do think mine are going to have a lot of fun with this and heck I may too (already thinking of setting it up outside the hall to scare the heck out of them if they decide to sneak out of their room at night before giving it to them) the pictures of the dinosaurs are cool but I do wish it said the names on the image so I don't have to look it up every time they ask "what kind is that one" I recommend grabbing some rechargeable batteries to go with this one too. I will be adding some pictures and videos later but as I've just finished checking it out myself... I figured I should go ahead and post this. If you'd like to pick one up for yourself you can grab it here.

BeeSili Super Silicone gloves

Hey everyone!
Now this one I'm doing for a very awesome company so if you want the businesses you deal with to have a social conscience this is a good one! See they actually do a lot of work for people with PTSD. They evem have a program that helps people deal with it so that's just awesome! The product in question is pretty freaking cool all by itself too. I was going to do a video with it showing how crazy heat resistant they are but I have been dealing with an abscessed tooth and am in a lot of pain so you'll have to take my word for it for now. The first thing I did with it was used it in place of a spatula when browning beef just cause I could. I also used them to drain spaghetti in the pot. My only issue with them is I couldn't take a pot lid off with them on so unfortunately I can't toss my old potholders in favor of these but hey I can grab a baked potato out of the oven and that's good enough for me! Theres really much more positive to say but my head feels like its going to explode so If you'd like to try one yourself you can pick it up here. (Pictures when the face swelling goes down)

Hey everyone! Its giveaway time!! And this one is a good one too!! If you have little ones you know there's never an end to the bedtime storytelling. We love it too of course but sometimes your throat gets sore. This reading app is so cool! There are tons of stories at many different reading

levels and there are options to either read it yourself on your own, have it read the stories aloud to you while you turn the pages or to read the entire book automatically. They are beautifully illustrated too and the kids can save their favorites to read over and over again. Now this is a subscription service but you have the option to pay monthly or yearly or even get a lifetime membership or just use it for free (though you only get one story a day that way) they have the app available for both android and apple. The kids really love it! They read or listen to the stories all the time. I love how its all clean stories and nothing is too scary. Plus the fact that they can read any story in it regardless of the level since the app will read it to them. I like getting to cuddle with them and enjoy the story too. They honestly listen better when the tablet is reading than when I am. I think its because it doesn't wait for them :-)  So this company is awesomely offering one of my readers a free 3 month subscription!! Just use the handy widget below and share this out so more people get the chance. In the meantime you can always check out the app for free here! Good luck!
