This tent is a lot of fun. You can set it up in the backyard for the kids to play in, use it on your camping trips or even to change in at the beach for the day. It is also fun to set up inside the house for the kids to have their own “room” when they come visiting grandma or if they want a neat playroom for the day. Continue reading
The Zoodinos website states: ‘Dinosaurs come alive for kids in our new Dinosaurs book series from Zoobooks. Each edition in the Dinosaur series follows the award-winning Zoobooks approach: combining spectacular scientifically-correct illustrations and vibrant photos. Simple, interactive text encourages discussion and learninG.”
I am actually very impressed with these magazines and my homeschooled grandchildren will have a blast learning about dinosaurs from these colorful, well written magazines.
There are poems and stories that are fun and interesting. The pictures are very realistic and engaging. A plethora of scientific information adding fact to fictional stories bring the dinosaur era alive for young aspiring minds. Continue reading
Just right for taking a walk with my dog in the park, I can carry his treats and some of my things. It is well sewn. Color: Black
I was looking for a way to take my things with me when I walked the dog in the park without having to either stuff it in my pockets and risk it falling out or getting stuck using my large purse and having to drag that around with me with only one hand left to try to hang on to the dog’s leash.
This mini backpack is just perfect for what I needed and I can adjust it so if the dog has lots of energy like at the beginning of the walk, I can wear it across the body so it stays put.
After my dog has run some of his energy out, I can move the mini backpack so it is over one shoulder.
There is plenty of room in this mini backpack for my keys, wallet, phone, book, chapstick, dog treats, comb, and headscarf.
It’s not quite big enough for a water bottle, and the front pocket could have held a little more if there weren’t tucks in the fabric on either side of the bottom, but the backpack is very well sewn and the zippers slide easily.
The reason I chose this brand is because I purchased another backpack from them and was very happy with the quality.
I have purchased other backpacks and they were made out of thin mesh material that fell apart when I tried to clean them, but the backpack I bought from this company held up very well and I can clean them, too.
This is a must for everyone’s emergency preparedness kit. It is well made, 2 power sources and bright.
This is a very strong, sturdy, BRIGHT tactical flashlight. With all the storms and flooding in Texas, I figured we better get our self-reliance situation taken care of so this flashlight is now in our emergency preparedness kit.
It comes in a green water resistant case with a snap down lid for easy access and a cord for easy access to grab and go.
The flashlight has two power sources – the larger rechargeable battery that comes with it and it also takes 3 triple A batteries, that I have in it now. Continue reading

Comfortable secure fit, excellent sound – a great value for the money.
These are exceptional headphones with quality sound and comfortable fit. They are unique in that you can turn them on and off by touching them together – so convenient. The storage case they come in is well designed and fits in my pocket without taking up too much room. I love the pockets inside the case so when I open it the headphones just don’t fall out, they are secured and easily accessible.
I will say this – if you try them out and don’t like the fit or think the sound just isn’t precise enough…change the tips for a smaller size. That happened to me. I simply tried them out with the tips that came with them on it and was sad because they wouldn’t stay in and the sound seemed mediocre. After double checking the box, I found the little zip lock package with the extra tips in them and quickly changed them out so the smallest size was on the headphones. WOW! What a difference. The smaller tips allowed the headphones to go further into my ear and the sound became high quality with great bass and clear treble. I can actually shake my head and the headphones stay in. I love them! Continue reading
Great value for the money, these headphones are uber comfortable and have amazing sound quality.
These are super comfortable headphones with phenomenal sound. I am sitting here jamming out to “Sunshine in my Pocket” music and the bass
is great, the treble is clear and the beat just keeping me going. It
It was so easy to bluetooth these headphones, I just slid the power button to the right and waited until it flashed red and blue, then I went to my iPhone 6 plus to the bluetooth setting and the headphones
immediately bluetoothed. I am very happy with these awesome headphones and am working better with music that I can actually hear properly. Continue reading
I love my new power screwdriver. It fits conveniently in my hand and tucks in my tool kit because of its size and design. It is pink and white, my favorite colors and has all the screwdriver tips … Continue reading
This backpack is very well made from durable material and the stitching is excellent. There are no loose threads anywhere. There are a variety of pockets of various sizes.
This backpack is one of my favorites because of the security pocket for my wallet and plane tickets are easily accessible to me, but not to anyone else. The pocket is right over my lower back on the inside of the backpack so I just slide my hand between my back and the backpack, grab the pull tab on the zipper and easily open the pouch to get my ID and airline tickets.
The straps are all padded and very comfortable. There is a lot of room inside the backpack with diverse pockets and spaces for everything I need to fit. Continue reading
This ibagbar backpack is perfect for my needs. The best part, for me, is the waterproof bottom so when it set it down, it doesn’t absorb liquid or allow dirt to stick to it and can be wiped off quickly with a wet wipe.
The straps are very comfortable and well made.
The zippers have tabs that are easy to grab to open the backpack and get my airline tickets quickly at check out.
The backpack is a good size to hold my laptop and a perfect size for sliding under my seat on the plane.
The color gray goes with everything and looks good in a business environment as well as travel use. Continue reading
This is a good anti-theft backpack with the embedded zipper in the
front pocket and zipper placed under the flap on the stop. This
backpack is great for carrying my laptop and looks business like with
its minimalistic design.
The material it is made of will hold up well to constant use and the
color hides the dirt.
The inner lining is a pretty teal color and is much better than the
traditional black lining that makes everything disappear into a black
hole. This color will help me find what I need quicker.
The handle on top is comfortable and easy to grab when I am in a hurry.
The straps are padded and intelligently designed with a black mesh
backing for comfort.
There are three panels of padding on the back of the backpack to
provide protection for my laptop.
The only negative comment I have is that since the backpack was made
to make it harder for thieves to steal things from it, the enclosed
zipper is a bit of a struggle to pry it out of the enclosed flap and
dig the zipper out of the channel. That’s the trade off you get when
you try to make it harder for others to get into your backpack, it
also makes it harder for you, and takes longer to access what is in
the backpack. Continue reading
I am really thrilled with my new TOCODE sports camera. As I unboxed it and realized just how many accessories came with it, I got more and more excited.
Everything was packed carefully and in their own individual zip lock bags. The case it came in was a high quality very well made case with Styrofoam cut own protection inside the case for everything to fit into place.
The camera has four modes – video, photo, time lapse and burst photo mode. In burst photo mode the camera takes 3 photos in 1.5 seconds.
To charge the battery on the camera I used the included USB charger and cable and plugged it into the power strip on the back of my work table. I did notice that the camera got very hot to the touch when charging but cooled off fairly quickly when it was unplugged. Continue reading
I got the prettiest wind chime that is made of lovely clear nicely detailed hummingbirds. What is even better is that it is a solar wind chime that lights up! The humming birds stay lit for up to 8 hours when the wind chime has fully charged by the sun through the solar panel that the hummingbirds are suspended from. Continue reading
These earbuds are comfortable, easy to use, lightweight and stay put.
These earbuds are so convenient and comfortable.
When I got them, the first thing I did was put the smallest tip on the earbud so it sat in
my ear properly.
With the loop over the top of the ear, my earbuds stay in the ear easily instead of falling out.
The left earbud is the main one and I can use it while the other one is charging. I love the
carry case they come in so I can keep it handy in my purse.
One of the things I love about this set is that there are no double sets of tangled cords because the earbuds come with a USB split cord for convenience. These earbuds are lightweight so I can wear them for a long time without any problems, The sound is acceptable and phone calls are clear.
The instruction paper that came with it is easy to understand and has
visual aids as well as text. Continue reading
This personal safety alarm is LOUD and lightweight so it can easily be tucked in my pocket when I am going out by myself to secure the property, especially at dusk. There is a convenient mini flashlight on the end that you turn on by pushing the small oval button. It can go on a keychain or simply hang it by the door to grab when you need it. Continue reading
This CD player is very impressive for the quality of sound, versatility, and ease of use. It can be wall mounted and comes with the hardware and mounting plate on the back of the CD player but I prefer to … Continue reading
Sugar just got a new pet car seat. It’s pretty convenient as it can be unzipped to be used as a cover for the seat in my vehicle so her hair doesn’t get all over it, or it can be zipped up and make a box type seat for her to sit in. The back is rubberized so it stays put and doesn’t slide around and it is really well made with good stitching and quality materials. Yay for a cleaner vehicle!
