Bright Starts Swirl & Roll Truck™ Review + Giveaway

What is it about little boys and things that move?  My little boy is already fascinated by toys with wheels and moving parts.  I admit, he mostly only knows how to chew on them but his motor skills are getting better every day and I know it's not going to be long before I have a toddler pushing little cars and trucks all over my house!

If you want to hear about the latest fun wheeled toy in our house, you've come to the right place.  Right now L is all about the Bright Starts Swirl & Roll Truck™!

I don't have a photo, but he was positively amazed by the cardboard box that the truck arrived in.  What is it about babies and cardboard boxes?  :) 

The Bright Starts Swirl & Roll Truck™ truck is really just endless fun!  Little ones can drop each ball into the truck's stacker opening and then watch them swirl around and then pop out the back of the truck as it is rolling.

It's interactive as well - it lights up, features sounds and phrases, and has the cutest little "driver" ball to ride around in the front seat.  There are three buttons to press to laern shapes and colors, and to hear fun truck sounds.

As I mentioned before - L is fascinated by this toy.  He doesn't quite understand how to push it back and forth yet, but he will happily crawl around trying to get his hands on the balls for ten-fifteen minutes at a time.  For a 7-month-old with a tiny attention span, I find this to be remarkable.

He loves to watch as the balls pop out as the truck rolls along!  The Swirl & Roll Truck™ includes two AA batteries and four balls to allow for lots of awesome playing fun.

For more information about this and other Bright Starts products, you can visit them on Facebook.  The Swirl & Roll Truck™ is available for purchase (currently priced at $15.99) at Toys R Us.

Children's Book Review: 100 Devotions, 100 Bible Songs

"100 Devotionals, 100 Bible Songs is the first devotionl book for kids that uses classic Bible songs as a basis for daily devotions." In the opening note to parents, it explains that every hymns and Bible songs are basically just "little devotionals" that are set to music. This book just takes 100 new and classic songs and creates devotionals based on them. Each devotional includes an easy-to-read application, with a related Bible verse and a prayer. Stephen Elkins, grammy-nominated producer, put this book together with illustrations by Tim O'Connor.

This sweet collection features the beloved hymn "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus." The application story considers the USPS motto: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor gloom of night keeps me from my appointed rounds." If the postal service has that much commitment to their job, then Christians should be even more committed to Jesus. The verse listed is Joshua 24:15 "Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve." Whether you use this book for daily devotionals with your children, or just sing all of the fun songs, this is a great volume to own.

You can find 100 Devotions, 100 Bible Songs on Amazon!

Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishing for my review sample!  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.
