Discover Other Cultures with "Castle Farm" - Volume 1 DVD - Review + Giveaway

If there is a preschooler in your house, you may want to be on the lookout for one of the newest releases from Organa Kids: Castle Farm

Recently released on September 20, Castle Farm Volume 1 is a series of animated stories set in England. Featuring artwork that resembles a child’s drawing brought to life, Castle Farm is a gentle series from full of color and interesting characters.  You will meet Farm Girl, Piggy, Leonard, Farmer and all the barnyard animals as they solve mysteries, fix things, get chores done, play games and learn lessons about friendship, responsibility and having fun. Each vignette is filled with its own tiny adventure that will engage youngsters again and again.

My favorite thing about this DVD collection is that each episode features nursery rhymes and songs - some of which are traditional and familiar, but some are contemporary - and completely new to me! 

Organa Kids was established in 1995 with the mission of introducing American families to stories, characters and cultures from around the world through multicultural stories with universal themes. Inspiring kids to have an awareness of the world as a whole (while being delightfully entertained), Organa Kids is creating products that balance technology and real-world experiences. The company most recently released “Scavenger Traveler” app for the iPhone whereby kids of any age can explore their environment traveling or on vacation.

Children's Book Review: The Story of Noah's Ark Storybook and Wall Clings

Without a doubt, the story of Noah and the ark is one of the most famous ever told! Now with this bright and colorful storybook - The Story of Noah's Ark: Storybook and Wall Clings - written by Lori C. Froeb, you can experience this fantastic tales in a new way! Using the wall clings, your kids can create the story of Noah's ark on their walls. The vinyl clings peel right off, so your kids can rearrange them as you tell the story. The illustrations by Luana Rinaldo are so vivid you can almost read the book without the words.

I have never tested out 'wall clings' before and I am super impressed by these!  They feel sticky on the back - like they would stay on the wall forever, but they are easy to peel and re-stick.  The only thing I disliked about the book?  The animal wall clings mostly only have one animal - not a pair.  I can imagine that prompt questions of "but why aren't there two, Mommy?"  Perhaps it can be explained by saying the second animals are already in the ark.  :)

The Story of Noah's Ark: Storybook and Wall Clings is currently available on Amazon for $9.99.

dENiZEN: New Jeans from Levi's for Every Lifestyle {Review}

There's a new pair of jeans on the block!  Made by the famous Levi Strauss & Co.  and called dENiZEN (meaning "inhabitant"), these jeans are now available in the U.S. after being distributed in other countries.  You can fit the whole family with dENiZEN, as they are available for men, women, girls & boys in a variety of styles - there's sure to be a fit that everyone loves.

dENiZEN believes that "jeans are an important part of our lives - including life's most exciting, unique, entertaining, and challenging moments."  I love to capture the everyday moments of life - so you can be sure our family photo albums are going to feature a lot of denim.  :)

These new jeans range in price from $17.99 to $29.99 and are available exclusively online and in-store at Target. dENiZEN's Facebook page encourages their followers to share stories of their favorite things to do and places to go in their jeans - head over and add yours!

We received a pair of dENiZEN jeans to review - but as I'm not the one wearing them, I'm turning over the rest of this review post to my hubby!

Hi KC Mommy readers!  This is Julie's husband and I have had the chance to test out this pair of the new dENiZEN jeans - specifically the 285 Relaxed Fit jeans. I really like this new pair of jeans. I'm spending a lot of time crawling around after our son lately - and the jeans are great for everyday wear.  They have also been nice to wear to work - I have a semi-sedentary job, so they allow me the comfort and flexibility to work at my desk, as well as look professional when I am up and about. dENiZEN jeans have become a the "norm" in my lifestyle. 

I will add one note - no complaints from me about the laundry process with these jeans!  No shrinking or discoloration (at least not yet...we wear jeans until they are falling apart around here!) that I have noticed.  dENiZEN is a hit in our family.  When L moves out of infant sizes, I'll be keeping dENiZEN in mind for sure!

Visit dENiZEN on Facebook and "like" them for all the latest updates!

Wonderful & Whimsical Designs from B. Toys: Wheeee-ls Review

Is there anything cuter than a little boy and his collection of cars?  Most of the little guys I know find things that move completely fascinating.  Cars, trucks, boats, planes, trains...there are a lot of really fun things to discover and it seems like there is a toy version of everything out there.  There are so many toys with wheels that sometimes, they start to look alike.  And not very imaginative.  And well...just plain boring. 

This is why I was so excited when I discovered Wheeee-ls - these adorable cars from B. Toys!

I love finding toys that feel fresh and exciting.  These bright and whimsical vehicles are sure to bring a smile to your child's face.  As you can see - they coaxed a pretty cute smile out of my little one!

Measuring at 5" x 3.75" x 4" each, each of the vehicles (Taxi, Racer, Car, and Truck) features a different sound (squeaking, rattling, ringing, and chiming).  They are soft and chunky - which makes them perfect for little hands to grasp.  They are intended for ages 1-4.  L (almost 8 months) is having a blast with them - though he hasn't quite figured out how to make them go.  The most awesome thing about these cars?  They don't have any annoying sounds (or batteries), but you can pull them back and watch them fly across the room!  They don't like my carpet much, but in the kitchen they can go quite the distance.

Overall, the Wheeee-ls collection has been a big hit around here.  A couple of the cars have been riding around in our diaper bag for on-the-go entertainment! 

If you are looking for fun and unique playthings for your kiddos, make sure you take a look at the B. Toys collection.  As L grows older, I know I'll have my eye on some of them!  You can purchase B. Toys locally at Target stores (good luck - every time I visit, something is sold out.  They are cute and popular!) or on Target's website.

Thanks to B. Toys for providing my sample used in this review.  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.
