EXPERIBOX










Good morning! You may know that I am mommy to two beautiful little souls. I have a 3 year old daughter and a 1.5 year old son. I love finding fun new activities for them, so when ExperiBox contacted me to try their box, I was so excited!

What is ExperiBox?

It is a monthly subscription box for ages 0-3 filled with safe, developmental activities. For example, our box was full of natural paint, canvas, lavender, essential oil, sea salt, paint brushes, etc.

How was ExperiBox for older toddlers?

My 3 year old loved this box! She didn’t want to finger paint, but she loved using the brushes and even the lavender to paint. The paint was pink, too, which made her SO happy! My 19 month old liked it too, but not as much as his sister! He finger painted a lot, and loved the different textures (we added the sea salt to some and lavender).

Overall, we loved this box, and I was really impressed with the quality and quantity. With subscription prices ranging from $39.95-$29.95, it was MORE than worth it’s price! Ours also came with a high-quality, wooden teething toy. Each month is different, and full of something exciting and fun for that whole age range. There were also some great instructions for even the littlest babies to enjoy the box!

I think it’s a great idea, and something I would definitely recommend. There was plenty of product for my two kids to share, which was awesome!

 

Note: Although ExperiBox sent me this one box complimentary, all opinions are completely my own. I would never recommend something I did not believe in, or see the value in myself. 

SQUEASY GEAR 

When choosing products for my kids, I am often frustrated with what is available. I was the highest quality, non-toxic products for them which either comes at ridiculous prices or just difficult to find.

My kids love smoothies, so I was searching for something non-toxic, unbreakable, and easier for them to eat them out of. Everything was plastic, and I was discouraged. But then I found Squeasy Gear bottles and completely fell in love! I was so excited to try them out and once they came, I was even more please with them.


Starting off with the bottle itself, they are made of food grade silicone that’s non toxic and when your kids throw it/drop it, it’s not going to shatter! The name explains it perfectly: it’s squeezy texture is perfect for little hands! They come in several sizes, so you can use them for all ages and needs. We use the largest size (sport) for water bottles, and the 6 oz. snacker for smoothies etc. They also make a smaller snacker size that is perfect for baby food and homemade applesauces!

When my kids were babies, I used these reusable pouches to make baby food for them sometimes, and I wish I had used these! They are amazing and would make the best shower gift.

The lids have a no spill insert you can put in or take out for older kids. My 1.5 year old uses the no spill and it works pretty good! I honestly didn’t expect it to work as well as it does. My 3 year old uses hers without the insert so she can squeeze water out, or tip it back.

Overall, I am very satisfied with these products. Since we got them, we have used them daily!

I also wanted to share one of my kids favorite smoothies we make to put in the snacker bottles!


Coconut Gingerbread Smoothie:

1 frozen banana

1/2 c. steamed then frozen cauliflower

1/4 c. frozen butternut squash

1 heaping T. shredded coconut

1 T. molasses

1 t. ground ginger

1 t. cinnamon

1 scoop Vital Proteins vanilla and coconut water peptides

1 1/2 c. filtered water or nut milk

Blend until smooth, and pour into Squeasy Gear bottles! I also like using these to store leftover smoothies and turmeric lattes for my kids. They save well in them.

*I use all organic items!

 

 

MODERN TWIST


Good morning! I have been loving on a brand lately that I want to share with you guys. I know most of us have heard of Stasher, their sister company Modern Twist has some of the cutest products for kids!

The first one is the tiny tote which has been so perfect for snacks at home, and on the go. My kids love it so much. I love that it’s re-usable, completely toxic-free, and easy to clean. This bag zips closed really easily, and my toddlers can open it on their own too. I love having a great option to put their snacks in when we leave the house!

We have the garden play mark-mat too that we love! It’s such a fun idea, and something my 3 year old has really enjoyed coloring on. Heck, even I love coloring on it! It’s so cute and for some reason coloring on silicone is way more fun than anything else. I love that we can use this as a place mat as well, and that it’s dishwasher safe! It’s amazing! I am looking at getting this one and this one next! They are all so cute.

They also have stuff for younger toddlers and babies, too. We have been using the bucket bib (on backorder in this print but the others are SO cute too!) for out 1 year old and he actually likes it! The silicone makes it a lot more comfortable, and its super easy to clean after (my favorite part!).

Like Stasher, Modern-Twist is out the make the planet plastic-free, which is something we should all be getting behind. I also love that with these high quality, easy to clean products, I don’t need a ton of them to get us through each day.

Have you tried them out yet? If you have, what is your favorite product?
