Educational Insights Grandma's Trunk Alphabet Game Review + Giveaway

10:34 AM

    Educational Insights is a great store that is located in Southern California. Whether your children needs a little extra help in math, language, science, or other subjects. Educational Insights has you covered and has products in all of those subjects and more subjects to help your children learn!

     Educational Insights website is easy to navigate and also has 3 different tabbed categories on their website which include products for: Parents, Teachers, and Classroom Jeopardy! I also like that you can find products easily by subjects, brands, category, and theme. This is a great store to go to if your children in your classroom or at home needs extra help in certain subjects.

     I'm happy to introduce you to a fun new game from Educational Insights that is great for kids that are in Kindergarten and older. Although, I do believe kids younger will also love this game because my 4 year old niece absolutely loves this game. This fun game is called Grandma's Trunk.


"Pack in the fun with 5 games in 1!
Tons of fun is packed into this suitcase classic! With 5 ways to play, kids will practice letter names and sounds, build memory skills, create stories, and even play fun riddle games! Includes adorable cardboard trunk (which doubles as package), 26 alphabet picture cards, 26 alphabet riddle cards, and guide. Grades K+"


     Grandma's Trunk is such an adorable game. The pictures are designed with fun pictures that my niece absolutely loves. I let my mom take the Grandma's Trunk to her house so my niece could play Grandma's Trunk with her grandma. My niece loves this game so much that every time she goes to grandma's house she asks to play the Grandma's Trunk game. She doesn't just play the game once and then she's done with it. She likes to keep playing this game time after time.

     We love that this game is compact and convenient to transport to a new location. My niece brought the Grandma's Trunk over to my house so I could play Grandma's Trunk with her and grandma (my mom)! We love that the cards fit perfectly inside the sturdy "trunk" that is designed in a fun way. 

     We love that the cards are sturdy and are not flimsy. The cards are designed with fun pictures with letters on them. For example: The "I" card has a picture of an iguana on the card, The "E" card has a picture of eggs on the card, The "K" card has a picture of a kite on the card. My four year old niece had a great time with these cards. She had fun telling me the alphabet with the cards and she had fun telling me what pictures were on the cards. Grandma's Trunk also includes cards that have riddles on them that are fun to play with.
      Grandma's Trunk has 5 fun games all in one that can be played. The 5 games include: What Comes Next?, Memory Time, Grandma's Riddles, Letter Sequence Memory, and Grandma's Adventures.

    We really love these cards and would recommend them! My four year old niece really loves these cards! We are happy that these cards are helping us prepare her for Kindergarten. We think these cards would make a perfect gift idea for a birthday or any other occasion!

Alexia All Natural Foods Sweet Potato Puffs Review

12:53 PM

     Alexia is a great company that I love. Alexia was founded in 2002 and produces a full line of snacks, side dishes, appetizers that are 100% all-natural with 0 grams of trans fat. Alexia offers all-natural foods with real ingredients at the grocery store in the freezer section that are ready for your microwave or oven. Alexia puts quality and taste first! Some of the delicious products they offer includes: Easy Appetizers, Artisan Breads, Potatoes, Oven Baked French Fries, Sweet Potatoes and Potato and Vegetable Sides!

     We had the opportunity to try out the Sweet Potato Puffs! We had my mom over for dinner one day. She loves Sweet Potatoes so I was glad to introduce her to the Sweet Potato Puffs.

"Crispy outside. Soft inside. Sweet all around. It’s the next deliciously logical step for the great sweet potato. Crispy bite-sized puffs. "

     The Sweet Potato Puffs are simple to bake. The Sweet Potato Puffs take 18-22 minutes to bake in the oven. The Sweet Potato Puffs are best served fresh from the oven!

     We liked that the Sweet Potato Puffs were crispy on the outside to our liking while soft on the inside. The Sweet Potato Puffs remind me a lot like Tater Tots. I prefer my tater tots with dipping sauce and I would prefer the Sweet Potato Puffs with dipping sauce too to add more flavor. I thought the Sweet Potato Puffs tasted plain and didn't have much of a taste other than a sweet potato taste. I'm not a big sweet potato fan and I was hoping that maybe I would love the Sweet Potato Puffs. They reminded me of regular sweet potatoes taste so if you aren't a big sweet potato lover than these might not be for you! My mom on the other hand loves sweet potatoes and she loved the Sweet Potato Puffs. My mom also requested brown sugar to add to her Sweet Potato Puffs for more flavoring. My mom took home the left over Sweet Potato Puffs and enjoyed them! 

    We love that the Sweet Potato Puffs are a healthy appetizer or side dish choice compared to regular potatoes!

    The Sweet Potato Puffs have only 130 calories per serving which is about 2/3 cup. 0 trans fat! The Sweet Potato Puffs do have 8g of sugar.
Alexia has many great reviews of the Sweet Potato Puffs on their website! Visit Alexia to see what everyone is saying about the Sweet Potato Puffs !

   Alexia has created an easy store locator so everyone can see where to purchase the Alexia products nearest to them! Visit the store locator today to see where you can buy these great products!

Master Lock Celebrates Random Acts of Kindness Week With Offering Prizes!

11:56 AM

    Master Lock is celebrating National Random Acts of Kindness Week by helping Americans lock-up their New Year's Resolutions! Master Lock provides tips and surprises thousands of consumers with free locks!

    Between February 13th to the 19th, visit Master's Lock Facebook page to enter to win daily, free Master Lock products through their national sweepstakes.

     Did you know that by February, 36% of people have abandoned their resolutions and by April that percentage jumps to 54%?!

     Here are tips from Master Lock to help keep you on the right track to stay on top of your New Year's Resolutions:

•           Write It Down…and Share It. Simply thinking through your resolutions and storing them mentally isn’t going to ensure you stay committed. Having a list of goals in your organizer, smart phone, or social media profile that you can easily access and share will reinforce your promise to yourself and spur encouragement from your followers and friends.

•           Get the right gear. Whether your goals revolve around getting back in the gym or being more organized at home, having the right products to help you succeed is a must. For organization, the 7148D document storage box can help keep important documents safely filed away.  To securely organize your digital life, register for a free account at to safely store your user names, passwords and other confidential data for easy access anytime, anywhere.  Getting good shoes, proper work-out wear, and a new gym lock such as the 1534D Password lock will help reinvigorate your enthusiasm to exercise.

•           Do it for a Month. In order for a new behavior to become a habit, you must stick to it for at least 30 days. Setting this small goal will make achieving your overall resolution more realistic. Plus, you can be encouraged when you’ve reached the one-month mark and assess your progress. 

•           Keep a Journal. Commit to writing one to two sentences about your progress toward your goals each day. Keeping a written record of how you’re doing will keep your resolution top of mind and motivate you to continue to make changes.  

•           One Step at a Time. Don’t set too many goals and then try tackling them all at once. Make one goal your priority and focus on changing your habits to achieve it. Once you’ve mastered it, set your sights on two additional goals, giving yourself realistic timelines to achieve them and go from there.  

     During National Random Acts of Kindness Week, Master Lock will be surprising gym-goers in six cities with the innovative 1534D Password lock to encourage them to stick to their fitness resolutions and spread a little kindness. The lock is ideal for safely storing your personal belongings during a workout and will be distributed in the following markets:
•           Chicago, Illinois
•           Los Angeles, California
•           San Francisco, California
•           New York, New York
•           Dallas, Texas
•           Miami, Florida

    Remember to visit Master Lock on Facebook to enter to win prizes, including the 1534D Password Locks and Visa Gift Cards.
