Pacapod Review and Giveaway! {$121 Value}

Napier PacaPod Nappy Bag Review and Giveaway!

The Pacapod is one of the most awesome diaper bags I have ever seen or used! The best part is that it doesn't look like a baby bag at all. I have had several compliments on how cute my "purse" is. I have found that most diaper bags are not well organized and are not built to last. The Pacapod is very functional, stays organized and is made of very high quality materials. When I first saw a photo of the Napier Pacapod, I thought it was made of a pretty cloth material. After receiving the bag to review, I realized that although it does look like cloth, it is a slick material that can be wiped down.
I received the Mocha Melody Napier PacaPod to review and I have fallen in love with this product. There are two "pods' inside of the zipper pouch on one side of the bag. There is one (the feeder pod) that is fully insulted that can hold up to 4 bottles and will keep them warm for up to 3 hours. Plus, this pod comes with an extra detachable insulted bottle cover. The other (the changer pod) has 5 separate pockets, perfect for diapers, wipes and/or a change of clothes. It even has a separate "wet" bag for soiled diapers or clothes. The Napier PacaPod also comes with a padded changing mat that slides easily in and out of the outside pocket of the bag. The pods can be taken out and attached to a stroller for use if you didn't want to pack the whole bag along. Another option is using the bag without the pods for extra room!

The bag has 3 parent pockets that are perfect for keys or a cell phone. the top pocket is the full length of the bag and is also big enough for a lap top! The Pacapod comes in several different colors/pattens. I had a hard time choosing between the tutti fruiti and the mocha melody. It is available in a charcoal color, too. Pacapod also offers many different styles as well! They have a ton to choose from! ( Check out their website for style and color collections!)

One of the best feautres of the Pacapod is the stroller hooks. The hooks can be easisly tucked away and out of site when not in use or can eaisly be attached to a shopping cart or stroller when you are on the go!
Pacapod is a British-based company. They do not currently have a distributor in the USA but they intend on doing so very soon. If anyone in the USA is wanting to purchase a Pacapod, they can do so by going online at Pacapod!

The Napier Pacapod retails for $121 (when converted to USD) and is worth every penny!
(It has an adjustable shoulder strap and handles!)
I keep getting compliments on my Pacapod and I am very glad that to have found such a wonderful diaper bag! A big thank you goes out to Pacapod for this opportunity! I never have to struggle to find what I need out of the diaper bag!

YOU now have a chance to win a PACAPOD of your own! One lucky reader will win a Napier Pacapod in Mocha Melody {$121.00 value} SHIPPED FREE
OPEN TO US residents only!

PlasmaCar Review and Giveaway

Pure Energy...Pure Fun!

Are you looking for ideas for great Christmas presents for those hard to buy for kids or kids at heart? The PlasmaCar is the answer!!!!!
I've heard several people raving over the PlasmaCar and I had to see for myself what it was all about.
The PlasmaCar is one of the world's BEST selling ride on toys and it works by a simple turn of the steering wheel! This means NO batteries...NO pedals...NO electrical parts! This is a huge plus to me. I always dislike having to replace batteries numerous times.
The plasmaCar has been around for YEARS and I now know why. It could keep ANYONE occupied for hours. It was instantly a big hit at our house. It has a fun and unique design that is powered by the use of friction and inertia to make it go!
The car can travel speeds of up to 6 miles per hour and is made of HEAVY DUTY plastics that can support up to 220lbs so that those bigger kids or kids at heart (moms and dads) can join in on the fun. The PlasmaCar is suggested for kids 3 years and up.

We instantly were wanting to go out and buy a 2nd (or even 3rd or 4th) PlasmaCar so that we could race down the side walks in the neighborhood. We have stained concrete floors in our open area living room and it was perfect for riding on the PlasmaCar. The only downfall about it was the fact that it did leave scratch marks on the polished floor (oops!) so we have been using it outside only now.

My husband rode on the car for hours one night and said his only wish is for it to have a cushion for the seat! He ended up using a pillow from the couch so that he could keep riding (haha!). Nobody else had any complaints about the seat!

One of my favorite features is that the car can also work in reverse!

When we received the PlasmaCar we did have to put together some of the parts to the car but it was very simple. The car is lightweight yet very sturdy. It comes in several fun and bright colors for you to choose from. We chose the black and yellow to represent a local sports team!

Bubzidoo Review and Giveaway!

I am sure many of you have seen or heard of swaddlers and the great benefits to swaddling your baby. The Bubzidoo makes it possible to swaddle baby on the go to help baby sleep better when you are out and about.

Babies up to 9 months old are sent sleep signals when they’re swaddled. Swaddling your baby is easy  when you’re are putting them down to sleep at home, but if you’re out and about, it can be a more difficult task to get your baby wrapped and swaddled in a safe place. The Bubzidoo helps to solve this problem!
 The Bubzidoo is a special wrap which is designed to fit the baby snugly, wrapping the baby's arms. It can be wrapped around belts and buckles to keep your baby sleeping comfortably in their stroller or car seat.

I Absolutely love that the wrap is reversible! One side has small polka dots and the other side has bigger dots! The wrap also allows for baby to grow approx 10cm around the chest which means the wrap should last between 3-6months!
(I choose the Navy and I LOVE it!)

The Bubzidoo comes in four different sizes, small, medium, large, and extra large. It comes in five awesome colors! It is made of 100% cotton and is very light weight so that it can be used comfortably all year long. The Bubzidoo securely swaddles baby with a strong Velcro closure. It is made of high quality products and still looks brand new even after washing. (The Bubzidoo can be washed in the washing machine!)
Red Star Bubzidoo
Baby Pink Bubzidoo
Orange Bubzidoo
Hot Pink Bubzidoo
Navy Bubzidoo
Bubzidoo Step 1
Lay the Bubzidoo down in the car seat or stroller. (under the harness)

Bubzidoo Step 2
Place the baby in the car seat or stroller and buckle baby in as you normally would.

Bubzidoo Step 3

When you want your baby to sleep you can wrap the Bubzido over baby and secure the velco strip in the front! (easy and it works like a charm!)

You can purchase the Bubzidoo baby wrap (Retail Value: $33.90) HERE!
If you buy atleast 2 items, Shipping is FREE! You could buy two different sizes to last you a long time :)!

Yoomi Self Warming Bottle REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!

Parents know that it can be extremely difficult to warm up a baby bottle to the PERFECT temperature. YOOMI has the solution! When I came across this bottle I was amazed and knew that I had to give it a try. The bottle warms itself in 60 seconds with the touch of a button!

Preparation is defiantly the key to this amazing baby product. The bottle contains a heating insert that needs to be placed in boiling water for 25 minutes to charge the heating element so that it can later be used. It seems like a long time but all you have to do is place it in the pot of boiling water, set the timer and go about your other activities. The warmer then does have to cool for at least 75 minutes so this warmer isn't very useful if you don't plan ahead.

If you buy several warmers then you can have a stock of prepared warmers ready to go when last minute plans pop up! In 2012 Yoomi plans on releasing a microwaveable cover for the warmer. All you have to do with this is place the warmer in the cover, heat it for 2 minutes and then it is ready for use! I am very excited for the release of this cover and will defiantly be buying one! The warmers can only be used 100 times before you need a new warmer. I found that it would be best to use it only when you know you are going somewhere where you can not normally warm up a bottle easily (Although it is very handy and very easy for  everyday busy  and on the go moms!)

Once the warmer is charged and cooled, you place it within the bottle. The warmer is activated by pressing the orange button on the side of the warmer. This allows the warmer to fully warm in only 60 seconds. (This reminded me a lot of those reusable hand warmers that you have to boil and press the center button to activate...very handy!)

The formula is then warmed as it flows over the warmer and by the time the formula reaches the teat, it is heated to the exact temperature of breast milk, between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius. The warmer is designed to stay warm for up to an hour! The best part is that you don't have to worry about the milk being too hot or too cold!

The bottle does just as it says it does and its got such a neat design. The bottle is very easy to hold and the teat makes it easy to transition baby between breast and bottle. The bottle is slightly heavy with the warmer in place but we didn't mind it. The teat as has an anti colic valve to help prevent upset stomachs. You can also use the bottle with or without the warmer. The bottles come in a 5 oz or 8 oz and you can buy replacement warmers and teats. The bottles are BPA free!

One lucky reader will win a
5oz YOOMI self warming BOTTLE!

(shipped FREE)

The Yoomi Bottle with warmer can be purchased HERE! for $32.95

MANDATORY ENTRY: Yoomi has made it to the finals in the Red Tricycle 'Totally Awesome' Awards.
