20140414-032652.jpgI am beyond excited to be a member of the Madame Alexander Mom Advisory Board for 2014. I am going to be able to share all the wonder, that is Madame Alexander! Let me tell you a little about how this magical company came to be. Madame Alexander Doll Company was founded in 1923 by Madame Beatrice Alexander Behrman whose father owned the first Doll Hospital in America. It was here that she played with the dolls waiting to be mended. Beatrice Alexander believed in the American dream and started her own doll company. Her vision focused on the belief that dolls should engage the imagination and aid in a child’s happiness. Madame Alexander Dolls continue  to delight children and collectors all over the world. With Madame Alexander Dolls you get handcrafted quality that is impeccable even to this day.

Madame Alexander has an extensive doll line that includes Baby Dolls, Newborn Nursery Dolls, 18″ Dolls, Character Dolls, Madame’s Best which include the 90th Anniversary Collection, Americana, Ballerinas and Fairies, Broadway and the Movies, Fashion, Holiday, International, Special Occasions, Women of Fashion and History and the Storyland collection.

I just adore the Storyland collection and was ecstatic when I received the (Alice in Wonderland) Alice in Her Red Dress 8-inch collectible doll for review as part of the Mom Advisory Board for Madame Alexander. Alice in Her Red Dress is an exquisite, fully articulated blonde,browned eyed doll that is a girl’s dream come true. I felt like a little girl again when I received her myself! Her dress is red crepe-backed satin that has puffed sleeves that are made from the satin side of the fabric, while the skirt features the crepe side of the same fabric. With a white collar and ruffled apron hem her dress is perfection. Top that off with a black headband and black patent Mary Jane’s, Alice is complete. Alice in Her Red Dress is available for $99.95 and is for age 14 and up. 20140414-032540.jpg20140414-040231.jpg

Toys is committed to children and the world in which they live. All the packaging is designed using recycled materials, the boxes become pretty trays and even revert to become a gift wrapped box. B. Toys goal is to be much bigger than just a toy company. B. Toys want to be the voice of children…to say that it is all right to Be You!

B. Toys are creative and whimsical and bring out the imagination in your child. I love B. Toys for all of these reasons.  Here are some of my favorite B. Toys,

3. You Turns (1-5 years) Your little one is in the driver’s seat now steering the little car around. Forward, reverse, neutral, horn sounds, LED light blinkers, a variety of driving songs, screen lights up for night driving and it flips over and doubles as a pillow for road trips!

4. WeeMD (18 months-5 years) The perfect doctor play kit includes 14 pieces including a house calls case, Clipboard with paper, Reflex checker hammer, Otoscope (aka “earchecker”), Thermometer, Bandage for Boo-Boos, MD name tag, Stethoscope with heartbeat sound, Blood pressure cuff with gauge and spinning needle, Tweezers, Safe syringe, Just-as-safe scissors, Beeper with light and sound for busy little doctors.

ImageImageImageImageImageI have been a fan of Cloud b products since my son was a baby. It all started for me with the Sleep Sheep, an adorable cuddly companion and toy that soothes baby to sleep with calming “white noise” sounds. Well let me tell you that this little Sheep help get mama some much needed sleep!  And so I was sold on Cloud b. Cloud b was founded in 2002 and is a pioneer in creating products and programs that help children sleep. Cloud b has become a trusted name with parents worldwide with their award-winning products that are developed with an Advisory Board of pediatricians, teachers and parents to create products that soothe and comfort children. Recently I was sent the Twilight Carz from Cloud b. an adorable little red race car that will take care of your little one from night to day. It features fully functioning wheels that roll , the headlights and tail lights work independently of each other for daytime fun. After lights out it features projections of cool lightning bolts and stars, along with illuminating headlights and tail lights that are set to a 45-minute timer. It is a sturdy  well made toy, just as you would expect from Cloud b. Twilight Carz ensures complete darkness during your child’s sleep, as recommended by pediatricians. My little one is four years old and just loves his red Twilight Carz. He plays with it all day and grabs it as soon as it is bed time…lights out!

Twilight Carz require 3 AAA batteries that are included. It retails for $30-$32 and is available at retailers nationwide.

IMAG0701-1-1-1 I was introduced to these adorable pets at the New York  International Toy Fair this year. What are Scanimalz you ask, well they from SCANdinavia, sometimes have SCANic attacks, like to do SCANnon balls and make SCANtastic pets! Scanimalz from Wicked Cool Toys are cute, cuddly soft plush pets that have  QR codes on their bellies that are scanned and unlock the world to SCANtastic adventures.  Boys and girls alike will love the technology and interaction that comes with the Scanimalz world. This is unique in that the App prompts kids to scan their pet’s belly on a daily basis , and offers optional plush notifications alerting players to special scanning days, events,  and letting them earn points, thus will keep your child connected to their pet.

It’s easy to enter into the Scanimalz world…

1. Download the free iOS or Android Scanimalz App
2. Scan the one-time code on the bottom to unlock
3. Scan the QR code on the Scanimalz belly to play games
4. Earn Scantz points
5. Work your way up the Daily Leader Board

The App is FREE and the plush is affordable at the $9.99 price point. Scanimalz are available at Toy R” Us and other retailers nationwide.

Age wise, their website really doesn’t say, but to me the technology is really for an older child (8-12) but the games seem to be geared for a younger child (4-8).

The games are really fun and kept my 4-year-old interested. We also took it out on daily outings that required transit trips and it kept him quiet and engaged until we reached our destination, which of course is a big plus in my book. Mixing cuddly plush with virtual gaming technology and it definitely comes out a winner! This is one cool toy!

Wicked Cool Toys generously provided me a Limited Edition (highly collectible, 1 out of 1000 Scanimalz Plush Purple Bear to Giveaway.

Easy Entry Below:

Thanks for stopping by and Good Luck!

InnoTab 2 Baby By VTech Review

Vtech InnoTab 2 Baby Learning Tablet 12+ Months w 19 Apps, Camera, Gel Skin NEWAt the BigToyBook’s recent BabyPalooza blogger/media event held at Delta Children’s NYC headquarters I was introduced  to VTech’s InnoTab 2 Baby Tablet. The InnoTab 2 Baby is designed with a growing child in mind, which I love. Starting at 12 months up to age 9, this is the tablet that will grow along with your child. The tablet comes with a soft, removable gel bumper that helps protect the InnoTab 2 Baby from tumbles. I also like the bumper because it protects the cartridge from prying little hands that want to remove it. What little ones can’t  see, they won’t touch. The InnoTab 2 Baby includes content specifically for infants, including a Baby Sign Language program from Baby Signs, Inc. the world’s leader in sign language for hearing babies. The InnoTab 2 Baby has four activities for infants and  toddlers including a Noah’s Ark e-book, 12 sing-along nursery rhyme songs, and a drawing and coloring activity that will engage your child . InnoTab 2 Baby also includes a rotating camera, a video recorder, MP3 music player, e-book reader, video player, art studio and other fun apps for children to play with as they grow, With VTech’s extensive software cartridge library and compatibility with all InnoTab content on VTech’s Learning Lodge this is the only tablet  your child will need.

My 4-year-old just loves this tablet. He would not put it down. He likes the Color & Pop which is a virtual coloring book and the Motion Games. He also is having a blast taking pictures from the Rotating Camera and really enjoys using the Styluses (it comes with 2) and putting it back in its holder on the back of the InnoTab 2 Baby. Set-up is super easy, I had the InnoTab 2 Baby up and running as soon as the batteries were installed. Requires 4 AA batteries which are not included.

I just love toys that engage a child’s inmagation and VTech never disappoints.

The InnoTab 2 Baby Retails for $89.00
