Glowberry Bears

Most people associate Brainy Baby with educational DVDs. They also have some super cute toys on their website too! This cute little nugget (above) is Devonny, my 1 and a half year old little girl. This cute little bear she is holding is called the Glowberry Bear! I am proud to introduce you to this snuggly toy. I will bring to you all the perks of this toy right now.
Every since Devonny was one, she has had toys in her crib. She prefers toys that light up, and make noise. I like her having them too. Since my bedroom headboard shares a wall with her crib (in the adjacent room) I can tell if she is asleep or not by her toys babbling. This- and they keep her company and keep her from being so scared and lonely at bedtime. As soon as I took it out of the box (as you see in the pictures above) she was kissing it and holing it! It has three different buttons that make it do different things. If you push it's belly, the belly lights up (flashes as it giggles) when it stops giggling, the light goes off. The belly has a hard ball in it that can be felt inside the belly. It's not really, "in" the belly. It's right up on the fabric. I don't know if mine is defective, but its crotch lights up. She runs holding it, so I hope she doesn't hit her head on it's light up no-no area.
In one paw, you push it and it makes the light come on and stay on. It doesn't stay on for long, just a few minutes, and slowly it turns off, dimming as it goes.
Lastly there is the other paw. This one talks to the child/baby and says a few different things, lights up and also quits after 3 minutes.
Devonny adores this toy. I am confused that Brainy Baby only offers it in the blue and yellow, because the box has several different names and colors of other Glowberry Bears. Hmm? I do not know. I do know that it said each bear says and sounds different, and I am pretty sure they interact with one another.. somehow. I do not have two so I can't really tell you what they do.
Great news! Right now, they are on sale!!!!
My one complaint?   
This toy is very loud. Like I said, we share a bedroom (and bed) wall.. it is so loud in fact- that if I have started to doze off, it wakes me up. That's never happened with any other toy. When I say it's loud, you better believe its pretty darn loud!
My favorite part?   
Besides the fact that the baby loves it? I love the fact that it came with batteries. That's awesome!

Buy Summer Nightly for Regular Price: $24.99 Special Price: $12.99

Flashcar Friends
So this was my favorite! Also- what the giveaway will also be for. Let me tell you WHY I love these so much! Most flashcards are totally unappealing to kids. I don't care what is printed on them. They are not an educational TOY. An educational tool, yes. But not a toy. This turns them into a toy that they will want to play with. Without being prompted to. Not only that but most small children will bend, tear and ruin most any flashcards. Not these. They are wooden. They have a fun little storage base to keep them in. You cant even tell that they are flashcards when all put together. Wooden toys are amazingly durable and fun. I feel there are too many plastic toys nowadays anyway! I love that it is a recycling truck. Which is why I requested for it. This helps to bring up recycling later at an age when the child can fully understand it. I have never seen a recycling truck modeled as a children's toy. I definitely appreciated that aspect. It wouldn't have mattered which set of cards was in it, that's the one I would've asked for! 

The Flashcar friends have 4 sets
One is ANIMALS. 
One is NUMBERS. 
Of course the ever important ALPHABET!

Rudy the recycling truck is NUMBERS! This toy is quite heavy so watch your toes around the small babies. Other that that, I could find no defect with this item! We absolutley love it! I give it 10 out of 10 stars! It's so awesome, and extremely affordable. I think a little girl or boy would appreciate this toy!
If you want to win one, just keep reading below and comment "I want to win" and you are entered! There are also extra/optional entries as well! So do look for those.
