Polly Pocket has become one of my little one's favorite toys, and now that she has the Polly Pocket Playtime Pet Shop, I think it is her absolute favorite! Sure, she was happy when she received the "Hangout House and Patio" sets last month. However, when she recently got the pet shop, she was beyond thrilled! It was adorable to hear her squeal with delight over each little part of the set. It really is a cool toy! Kids these days do not know how great they have it! I do not remember toys this fabulous when I was a kid! LOL! Anyway, her favorite part of the Pet Shop is.. well ... everything! However, when I pressed for an answer, she finally told me she really likes the grooming area (bath) and the way the treats fall out. She LOVES this toy! Since we received it, she has played with it multiple times each day! I love this--more imaginative play time and less desire for electronic fulfillment! YAY! Another thing to note is that she prefers this set over the Hangout sets from last … [Read more...]
Polly Pocket – Review
My little girl loves all things small. She has ever since she was very little. She will always go for the smaller Polly Pocket sized toys over the large dolls. She creates cities and zoos and many places for her treasured friends to play in. I just love her imagination! Polly Pocket is one of her absolute favorite toys and when I had the opportunity to try out a new type of Polly, I jumped at the chance...er...well...for my little one, of course! ;) She got two new Polly sets, one was a "Hangout House" playset and the other was a Patio. They both came with so many fabulous accessories. The house has a swing (wish MINE did...LOL), tub, toilet, fridge, table, chairs, adorable animals--including a top floor pool, doll and several other wonderful things. The patio was smaller, but still came with several goodies; a grill, a serving hut, chairs, doll and an adorable chameleon! Soooo much fun! All those things are great, but that's not even the best part! My Our favorite things … [Read more...]
Rio Bible Study!
Yes, you read right! :D Twentieth Century Fox has a FABULOUS freebie for Moms of Faith! I am thrilled to share this with you and hope that you will use it as an opportunity to teach your children Biblical lessons through this awesome movie. I had the privilege of seeing Rio in the theater and a screener DVD. However, when I was asked to share a Bible study with my readers, I was a bit surprised. I mean I have never been asked by a large movie distributor that is not "exclusively faith based" to include a "Christian" Bible study with the movie. It was very refreshing, and I have to give HUGE props to Twentieth Century Fox for including Christian families in their film distribution efforts. The Rio Bible study is actually very well done. It includes thought provoking questions to ask your children or focus group. It also has Scriptures and lessons to learn from different aspects of the movie. It really put the whole movie in a new perspective and caused me and my girls to think. The … [Read more...]
