Whether you like to coordinate your multiples like me, or you have a daughter who likes a multitude of solid color options to mix and match, you're going to love basics by kidpik (who provided us with some clothes in exchange for this review.) Offering the best in cute & fashionable basics for girls sized 4T - 16 - no logos, prints, or graphics - you can mix and match and let your girls show off their own style (without breaking the bank)!
We're talking buttery soft and comfy materials, in a rainbow of colors, at a price point that will make your wallet do a happy dance! As a mom of twins, their "Buy 2 get 30% off" deal for nearly every item is right up my alley, but their regular rates are great, too! For example, seamless tank tops (in 20 colors!!) for $7.50 (2 for $10), long sleeve layering tees for $10.50 (2 for $15), super soft skinny jeans for $22.50 (2 for $34), t-shirt dress for $14.50 (2 for $22), fun fringe denim shorts for $17.50 (2 for $25), and glitter sandals for $25 (all shown in the above image).
Check out my girls modeling the Coco Swing Top in Provence Blue ($10.50, 2 for $18) and Tie Front Skort in Pink Peacock ($15.50, 2 for $22). I love the skort - fun like a skirt and practical like shorts! I think it looks best with a fitted shirt tucked in (so you can see the adorable tie front), but I was happily surprised that the swing top actually works well in or out! Both are super duper soft, especially the skort, made of rayon spandex jersey. They're adorable and welcome additions to my girls' spring and summer wardrobe! The sizing was spot on, as well, my girls are in between 3T and 4T so we went with size 4 and it'll definitely fit through summer and probably even next year (now that's a great bang for your buck, am I right!?)

I recently posted about my concerns over the typical (quite revealing) swimwear options available for young girls these days (read more here) and my hunt for more conservative and sun safe options for my toddlers. I did find a few options, one of them being UV Skinz, who sent us some great children's sets for review, and will be giving away a full children's swim set (hat, top, bottom) to one lucky reader!! Watch our fun unboxing and swimwear fashion show, keep reading the rest of our review, and enter to win in the app at the bottom of this post!
Founded by Rhonda Sparks after losing her 32-year old husband to Skin Cancer in 2001, UV Skinz produces UPF 50+ sunwear for babies through adults, aiming to provide families with "peace-of-mind in the sun". You'll find great styles in everything from swim suits and rash guards to sun hats and cover ups to dresses and hoodies!
Our 3 year old twins received adorable swim sets from UV Skinz Girls' Seaside Breeze Collection. Emi got the purple-hued Hibiscus Floral Stripe design and Mia got the Pink Flamingo Stripe design in: Swim Shirt ($28.95), Swim Skirt ($29.95), and Sun Hat ($24.95). The skirts have built in bikini bottoms and an adjustable tie on the inside. The skirt provides extra coverage (from the sun, etc), as well as the "fun" skirt factor that some little girls (like my Mia) can't get enough of! We haven't had a chance to wear them in the sun or water yet, but they're absolutely in love with their new outfits and demanded wearing them around the house for 3 days straight, I kid you not, you can even see them donning their swimwear in our latest cooking video LOL!! That's definitely one perk of these modest swimwear - you can wear them in the water, on the beach, and once dried off, even straight into the shops and restaurants - no cover up needed!
Our 6 year old son received a set from the Boys' Seaside Breeze Collection - the Jaspe Royal Turtle Sport Sun & Swim Shirt ($31.95), Board Shorts ($26.95), and Snap Back Hat ($19.95). The board shorts have velcro and tie, are nice and long (knee-length) for maximum sun coverage, and are adjustable inside so you can make them snugger or looser, which is not something I've seen in swim shorts before and is great!! They also have built in mesh underwear which I know some people don't like (inspect before each use to make sure there are no holes that could entrap anything, or cut them if super paranoid), but they're required in NYC public pools so I was grateful to see it! The hat is adjustable in the back, and has a moisture-wicking terry cloth sweat band.
The designs and the quality are top notch, and the sizing seems to be correct as well. The shirts are a great length, we've had some rash guard shirts that were a bit short, leading to their bellies hanging out, but these are perfect! The only negative is that the necks are cut pretty small, meaning my kids aren't able to get them on and off over their heads by themselves, but on the bright side, they're fitted and tall, meaning more sun protection (without need for regular sunblock applications) for those delicate little necks!
You can purchase UV Skinz on uvskinz.com and Amazon (affiliate link), but you can also win some in our giveaway here!! Open to US residents ages 18 and over, one lucky winner will receive a hat, swim top, and swim bottom set for boy or girl in their choice of size. Don't forget, the more actions you take in the below app, the more chances you earn to win! Good luck!! Giveaway ends at 11:59PM EST on Thursday, April 11.
I ran across EzyRoller at the 2019 Toy Fair New York (check out my highlights post and video here!!) and knew it would be a hit for my whole family. I was thrilled when they offered to send us a couple in exchange for review, and even more thrilled that they are GIVING ONE AWAY to one lucky reader!!! Watch our fun demo & review video, keep reading, and enter to win your own EzyRoller Classic in the app at the bottom of this post!!
It's hard to explain exactly what an EzyRoller is, there is a great demo video on their website that will give you a better idea!! But basically it's low-to-the-ground ride-on that you maneuver with your feet, not by peddling, but by kind of swerving them left and right. It's so easy, even my 3 year old twins got the hang of it quickly!
There are 5 EzyRoller models:
Our EzyRollers were surprisingly pretty quick and easy to assemble, just a couple of minutes to snap and screw parts together (1 tool required and included). It was also easy to change the length of our classic on the go, meaning the adults and the kids could share it, just screwing in and out the extension rod in just a minute.
I believe your environment will have a big impact on how fast you're able to go. I expect you'd get the best performance on smooth flooring such as in a gymnasium. We took ours out for an inaugural spin at a local park with a roughly paved track, and it was VERY windy. Still, they did great, but I blame the terrain on my snail pace performance (I came in dead last in a stop watch race against my husband and 6 year old son). My 6 year old, however, was a pro. He won the race. He didn't get tired (yes, I found it a bit of a workout for your thighs, which is good!!!). One of my 3 year olds got the hang of it much quicker than the other, and it surprised me because the one who did better on her EzyRoller was the one who is still pretty terrible on her scooter! But, I guess it's a completely different kind of skill set and muscles / coordination at play here!
All in all we found the EzyRollers to be extremely fun, and unique!! So different from the traditional bike, scooter, skate board, or roller skates! The perfect addition to round out your collection of movin' and groovin' fun active toys!! They're also pretty easy to store since they are self-standing, they fit into our crowded closet no problem!
You can purchase EzyRollers on their website or Amazon (affiliate link), but wait, you can also win one!!

At the 2018 Toy Fair New York (click for my highlights video) I stumbled across the EggMazing Egg Decorator and was totally blown away. It's basically a cute little machine that spins the egg while you hold the marker, creating a unique design every time. I regrettably didn't try it out myself, but last month at the 2019 Toy Fair New York (see my blog post & video here), I ran across their table again and they had added a new product, the TreeMendous Christmas Tree Ornament Decorator, which allows you the same fun, unique, and mess-free decorating but this time for round Christmas tree ornaments (that come with the kit)!
So, as a blogger does, I reached out and they sent us BOTH products to review and GIVEAWAY!! Hoorah!! Enter to win at the bottom of this post, but first, watch our demo video to see how easy and mess-free it is, even for our 3 year old twins!!
The EggMazing kit is incredibly easy and quick to set up - you just need 4 AA batteries and some eggs. I googled and found this recipe produced perfectly hard boiled eggs:
The 8 markers included in the kit are non-toxic and certified lead free, so as long as you handle the eggs safely and don't have them out of the fridge too long, eat away! After ours were beautifully decorated, I actually got my kids to eat hard boiled eggs for the first time in their lives! HA! Win win!!
Now, it's not 100% mess-free, but pretty close! You are dealing with markers after all, and markers + toddlers = uncertainty. You'll see Mia manages to get a dot of marker on her shirt, and a bit on her fingers (I would expect no less from her). But, compared to the stinky vinegar dye splatter messes we're used to with traditional Easter egg dipping, this was 200% better, and our little ones could actually do this unassisted! We did have trouble one time with the spinning wheels picking up some of the marker and then transferring that onto our egg. But the instructions have a simple solution, just wipe the wheels clean with rubbing alcohol.
So, if you're ready for fun, easy, relatively mess-free Easter egg decorating with kids, the EggMazing kit is a MUST!! You can order your EggMazing kit on eggmazing.com or Amazon (affiliate link) for about $25, and the TreeMendous on eggmazing.com or Amazon (affiliate link) for about $30. (Stay tuned, we'll be reviewing the TreeMendous later in the year).
But don't forget, you can also enter to win them!!
We're giving away a set to 1 lucky winner, including:
This past weekend we were hosted by Pip's Island for a special bloggers' preview of this "immersive theatrical adventure" and can I just say, MIND. BLOWN!!! I was expecting a cute generic children's theater kinda thing, but boy oh boy, was I wrong! Rather than being the audience, your children are actually TAKING PART IN THE ENTIRE SHOW! There is no stage but rather a series of rooms designed so well that you actually feel transported to this other dimension - Pip's Island!
The kids are immersed in the adventure right from the start, getting dressed in special explorer vests and digital wrist bands. Led by a park ranger from set to set, meeting other characters, engaging in exciting challenges. The kiddos' care givers join but take a back seat, figuratively and literally, being encouraged to sit back and watch from comfy benches and chairs toward the back of each room. But for the kids, it's never about watching passively. They're engaged in every moment - helping to find gems to open up a hatch, fly a magical ship, crawling through mole hills, decorating cake to feed to a huge monster, and in the end, working as a team to destroy the villain and save the Island.
As a parent, I found the entire show captivating. The actors were terrific, the sets were incredibly creative, the dialogue at times downright hilarious. But watching my children's faces as they participated in the adventure was the absolute best thing ever!
It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience for both kids and adults. If you are a NYC-area parent, take your kids to Pip's Island, from the bottom of my heart, you will not regret it! Whether it's a birthday treat, weekend adventure, or random after-school splurge, you and your kids will be talking about it for days (or weeks, or longer!).
Pip's Island is geared toward kids ages 4 - 10 years. My 3 year old twins thoroughly enjoyed it, though there were a couple of short-lived moments that unnerved them a wee bit, and one of them sat on my lap during the last scene because of the "scary bad guy" haha! There are strobe lights and loud noises, too, but it's very kid-friendly, the actor / guides are great with the kids, and parent(s) are there for reassurance as well. So, take that into consideration, you know your children best!
Pip's Island started previews today (March 11)! You can buy tickets for $39 online or $49 at the box office (adults & kids require a ticket, and all children must be accompanied by at least 1 adult parent or guardian). The 60-minute long show runs Wednesdays through Mondays at 400 W. 42nd Street at various times throughout the day.

There are numerous milestones our kids reach, where we just kind of sit back dumbfouded going "Whoa, when did you get so big!?!" Upgrading out little ones' sleeping situations is always a huge one for me. From crib to toddler bed to twin bed, from swaddle to sleep sack to light blanket and now, to comforters!!
We were provided these adorable Milo & Gabby 3D Blankets from jolimoli.com in exchange for review, but don't worry, all thoughts and opinions are my own and completely unbiased. Watch our fun unboxing here, then keep reading and don't forget to enter to win $150 credit on jolimoli.com in the Rafflecopter app at the bottom of this post!!!
Once your toddler is ready for his or her first comforter, there are countless options out there. I have to say, I've never run across one quite as unique and, in a word, ADORABLE, as these Milo & Gabby 3D Animal Blankets.
Measuring 39" wide by 51" long, these comforters are the perfect size for a toddler bed, but as you can see they also work just fine on a twin or even a crib mattress! Our 6 year old graduated to his Ikea Kura twin bunk bed a year ago (see our blog post about the best products for bunk beds here), and while this blanket doesn't go all the way to the end, it's definitely big enough for him to use for a few more years! And he couldn't be more in love with the Tiger he picked out - it even has paws and a tail!!
Of course my 3 year old girls picked out the pink bunny design, which is super cute. They also have a blue dinosaur (I kinda feel sad none of my kids picked him, poor guy, no offense, you rock, too!). I love how simply designed they are - you could potentially have all 3 designs in one room and it would totally work because the colors are bold and basic, cheerful and childish without being over the top or babyish.
Each blanket comes with an attached mini stuffed animal, which is such an unexpected and sweet bonus! The shell is 100% cotton, with polyester fiber, and they are MACHINE WASHABLE!! YES!!! Machine wash cold, tumble dry low, good as new!!
The Milo & Gabby 3D Animal Blankets retail for $158 a piece over on jolimoli.com, so if you win the $150 credit giveaway, you could get one nearly for free!! But they have TONS of other great stuff to choose from, too! We're talking 3D Animal Pillowcases ($38), Animal Shaped Backpacks ($38), and other great items for baby through big kid from Innobaby, Kinderspel, Milo & Gabby, Aquaheat, Dono&Dono, Little Fennec, Ecleve, Botanical Therapy, Clarmiel, Sage Pole, and Spike.

The best sled for your family can vary depending on many factors, such as the ages and number of kids, storage space, frequency and amount of snowfall, and more! So, here are a few options we love personally or have found through asking around and doing some research!
Do note, all of the Amazon links below are "affiliate links" - you won't pay more but I will receive a small commission from any purchases after you click on the link. This is one way in which we bloggers can keep on blogging, and we thank you!!
We were sent the Wham-o Snowboogie Animal Sled free for review and boy oh boy is it cute!! We got the wolf, which my kids went crazy about (there may have been a howl-off when we unboxed it). It also comes in fox or penguin designs. Injection molded "Easy Grip" handles for durability, rope for carrying the sled uphill and water resistant, it goes for $39 on wham-o.com. My son absolutely loves his new sled, doing down on his knees or on his tummy, my hubby had a few good runs on it as well! It cleaned up super easily (we went when the snow was melting and got quite muddy) and is very small and flat so just threw it under the bed for easy storage!
PLASTIC TOBOGGAN (1-2 seater):
This is a great bang for your buck, is super lightweight, are fairly flat for storage and stack nicely if needing multiple sleds, can carry 1-2 riders (though we have a similar one I grabbed at a local shop the day before a snow storm, shown in banner at top of post, and I've ridden it together with my 3 year old twins just fine!). They are plastic so you have to be careful or you'll crack it. This plastic toboggan is "Amazon's Choice" (affiliate link) comes in green, red, or blue.
INFLATABLE SNOW TUBE:
If you've gone tubing at a ski resort, you know this is a super fun, fast, and comfortable way to go sledding!! They are also a great space saver, though they do require some time to inflate. This is the best selling single snow tube on Amazon (affiliate link) and here's Amazon's best selling double version (affiliate link) and triple version (affiliate link).
SAUCER / SPINNER:
A great space saver, saucer spinner sleds are small but mighty. Great for kids, or adults who don't mind criss cross applesauce style sledding. Here's the best selling saucer spinner on Amazon (affiliate link).
SLED FOR PULLING BABY or TODDLER:
When looking for a sled to pull a baby or toddler, you'll need to make sure it has a good back on it. This cute wooden toboggon is "Amazon's Choice" baby sled (affiliate link).
OTHER FUN SNOW TOYS:
Now, I haven't tried any of these so can't give you my personal review, but they sure look fun!! If you have used them, please comment below and let us know!!
So, what do you think!? What types of sleds did you have growing up? What have you introduced to your kids so far, or what are you excited to give them in the future!? Leave a comment below!!
I want to start this post off with a HUGE THANK YOU to King Kong Broadway, for providing us tickets in exchange for this post, but moreover, for providing my husband and I with a much needed (and LONG overdue) date night! And a thrilling one, at that!!
King Kong officially opened up on Broadway in November 2018 and has been receiving rave reviews, and I can now say personally, for good reason! Before heading to the show, I checked out their website and Instagram feed, but frankly, wasn't quite sure what to expect. A broadway musical... about King Kong? What the heck??? But now I'm here to tell you what you can expect: to be absolutely thrilled, breathless, enthralled... I could go on! And it starts from the moment you arrive at the theater.
Their logo, with the heroine's silhouette within King Kong's shadow, love it! They've got it shining on the stage curtain when you walk in as well, so don't miss the opportunity to run up and take a photo in front of it as we and countless others did! They also have great merchandise, even water bottles with King Kong on them!
The story takes place in 1931, during the Great Depression, and we are quickly introduced to our beautiful and brave heroine, aspiring actress Ann (played by Christiani Pitts), who goes from dreaming of being Queen of the City to sleeping in Central Park and waiting in the soup line. She runs into her perceived savior, Carl (played by Eric William Morris), a film maker, who takes her on an incredible journey across the seas to Skull Island.
Now, I want to pause here a moment to go over the incredible stage. How they were able to transform it from the streets of New York City to bobbing up and down across the ocean - they actually build the bow of the ship in front of your eyes and have it on hydraulics (I'm assuming?). AMAZING!! You actually feel like you're sailing across the seas with them!
On Skull Island, Ann is captured by King Kong, then saved by him, and finally her crew captures him and transports him back to NYC for exhibition. Because, it's all about the money, isn't it? This is the part of the story we're all familiar with. His fate is doomed, of course, which is utterly tragic and I have to admit I was very close to tears at the end. But the way they transform the characters, use King Kong's demise to inspire the characters and the audience to do the right thing rather than the easy or greedy thing. It's truly beautiful! The final song is upbeat and helps you leave the show feeling alive and excited rather than walking out bawling over the epic destruction of such a beautiful beast.
Speaking of the beast. He was basically a modern day puppet. Hung from strings, and operated by a group of hooded puppeteers on the stage and above (taking a bow, above). You could see them climb up his back and jump down making Kong's arm raise quickly and dramatically as his ROAR boomed across the theater. It was simply fascinating to watch him. They somehow figured out how to have him running across the jungle or streets of NYC, with exciting techno music, Kong staying in one spot but the screen behind him flying by, puppeteers moving his arms and legs in running motion. Your mind knew it wasn't actually running, but you simply couldn't believe otherwise. He is fast and ferocious, and this crew is nothing but masterful in its portrayal!!
Kong's face was also spectacular. His eyes had soul, and so much emotion came through in the subtle motions made by the robotics team backstage. He's obviously not a real live gorilla, or is he?! Sometimes I almost forgot.
The story, the music, the dancing, the acting - all top notch, holding its own on Broadway and definitely well worth your time and money. But King Kong himself, he is the show stopper. He is what makes this a truly unique and unforgettable experience!!
So, make haste and grab your tickets today!! Get $55 off with code KKPVM129 here through 9/1/19! One final note, though. I personally wouldn't recommend this show for young children (under 4 years not permitted in the theater, but I would say under 7 may get afraid during certain scenes). I mean, I'm a grown woman and found some scenes downright terrifying - that roar, man, not something you soon forget!! Here's a great montage:
This post is made possible by support from King Kong Broadway. All opinions are my own.
This post was sponsored by Liberty Science Center through a Momtrends blogger campaign, however all thoughts and opinions are my own (cuz... I'm no sell out!!)!
Little by little we're making our way through my list of the best day trips & weekend getaways from NYC, as well as the best kid-friendly spots within the 5 boroughs, and this past Saturday brought us to a new one which is now one of my all-time favorites: Liberty Science Center!! In a nutshell, the entire facility and all of the exhibitions were immaculate, there were endless hands-on activities for everyone from toddlers through adults, and it's relatively easily accessible for NYC dwellers despite it being "all the way over" in New Jersey LOL!! Watch my video highlights here and keep reading below for more details about the center in general as well as some brand new exhibits!
DOC MCSTUFFINS EXHIBIT:
Open from October 6, 2018 - January 27, 2019, this exhibit is based on Disney Jr.'s award winning children's TV series, Doc McStuffins. Children can feed newborns in the nursery, complete check-ups in the ER, care for animals in the Pet Vet, tune-up toys, and more! My kids loved every nook and cranny of this exhibit, and my girls were specially fascinated with the pretend hand washing stations, haha!!
SHERLOCK HOLMES EXHIBIT:
Walking through this interactive adventure, you could really find yourself carried away to another time and place. Each center is meticulously decorated with forensic clues to read and examine - see first hand how blood splatter analysis works, how foot prints differ going forward and backward, and much more!! Do note that this is a premium exhibit, meaning it's not included in general admission. You can pay an extra $6 or so to go the planetarium OR a premium exhibit, or about $10 extra to do both. Don't expect to follow along and actually solve the crime if you have little ankle biters in tow like we did (though it's still enjoyable to walk through and take it all in), but if you have older kids or adults only, spend an hour in here and have an exciting crime-solving adventure!
I could not believe my eyes when walking into this room, and seeing on their website that it's the "Biggest Planetarium in the Western Hemisphere", yep, I believe it!! It's massive!!!!! When sitting down, it's overwhelming and absolutely breathtaking!! When seated you pretty much had a 180 degree view from left to right, and the screen and images even wrap up and behind you a bit. We saw the "One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure" Sesame Street Show and it was really adorable - we learned some of the basic constellations and even traveled to China and the Moon!! Currently playing, they also have "Black Holes" and "Wonders of the Night Sky". It's not included in the standard admission fee, it's an add-on just like the "premium" Sherlock Holmes exhibit mentioned above.
OTHER NOTABLE ACTIVITIES & EXHIBITS:
Liberty Science Center is just a 40 minute drive from Bay Ridge Brooklyn (about 1 hour 15 minutes by bus / Path / NJ Light Rail), so totally doable if you plan to spend half a day there or so - great for a cold or rainy Saturday or Sunday!! They're open 9am - 4pm on Tuesdays - Fridays and 9am - 5:30pm on weekends (closed Mondays). Parking is $7. Admission is $23.75 per adult ($19.75 for ages 2 - 12), plus $6 for a combo pass (1 planetarium show OR 1 premium exhibit) or plus $10 for a Premium Pass (1 planetarium show AND 1 premium exhibit).
But here's where you can get a great deal... the FAMILY MEMBERSHIP!!! At just $175, basically the same price as 2 visits with a family of 4! It includes unlimited admission for 2 adults and 4 kids, 6 single-use passes (which can be exchanged for theater show tickets), member-only events (including member mornings and nights), and discounted theater/planetarium shows, premium exhibits, science camp, gift shop & cafe! Membership also grants you free admission to over 340 science & technology centers around the world as part of the ASTC Travel Passport Program (they must be at least 90 miles from your residence or science center where you are a member).
Thanks again to Momtrends and Liberty Science Center for hosting all of us bloggers and our families - we had a blast (above pix from our private party that included breakfast, learning about Bernoulli's Principle of Flight via 9 rolls of toilet paper, and making ice cream with liquid nitrogen - SO FUN!!)
We were recently sent some new sneakers from a company I suspect many of you may be unaware of, despite the fact that they are one of the best selling children's shoe companies in Japan! Syunsoku, founded in 2003, has sold more than 60 million pairs of shoes, and they are guaranteed to be your child's next favorite pair of sneakers!
The name Syunsoku means "flash feet," which is a nod to the speed and power their sneakers are designed to provide. Developed to support the feet of sports-minded kids, and designed to perfectly suit each age group's changing shape of feet - allowing ample space for toes and appropriate height for toes and heels.
Now, their sizes are not standard US sizes, so you'll have to review their size chart (available on each product page), but it's not too hard to figure out - I got my 3 kids' sizes right on first try, woohoo!! For our 5 year old, we got the RS2 Boys Sports Shoes in "Yellow", though it's more of a lime green and we LOVE THEM!!! So cute and unique! He mentioned they felt snug on the sides when first wearing them, and the product page does say this style is perfect for boys with extra narrow feet (which Kenzo does not have), but at the end of his first full day wearing them he said they felt great, so maybe you have to settle into them and stretch them out a bit. This style retails for $49 but is currently on sale for $24.50 on syunsokuusa.com. It's also available in "black" and blue".
For the girls we got these super cute Cream Girls Sports Shoes in "Black". The girls are obsessed with the shiny little pink bow atop the velcro strap, and frankly, so am I! HA! The sole is very thick (so not super flexible, but flexible enough) but they're very lightweight with "enhanced cushioning." These retail for $64 but are currently on sale for $32 on syunsokuusa.com.
Looking to get some new sneakers for your kids? Go check out Syunsoku! Available on their website (offering free shipping, 100% satisfaction guarantee, and free 30 day returns) and also Amazon (affiliate link).
