1000 Subscribers Celebration ~ Brainy Baby Puzzles

Krash is working pretty hard, and he loved what he was doing!

I am SO excited to have Brainy Baby as a sponsor of our celebration! Not only are they a sponsor, they are giving away 6 different products (and they sent all 6 to Krash and Ladybug to review for you)!!! You’ll have to stay tuned to see what else they are giving away, but for today, here’s their first great giveaway…

I immediately loved these simple and colorful animal puzzles and figured Krash would too. I put them on one of his trays and he was instantly attracted to them (which does NOT always happen!!!). He likes puzzles, so that’s a plus.

I showed him how to do one of them and then let him work away. He was able to complete them on his own with minimal help from me. He stuck with it and completed them all!

After he finished I showed him how he could flip them over to see the big words on the back. He enjoyed this also!

These are great, simple, 3-piece puzzles, just perfect for Tot School! You can buy your own set here.

1000 Subscribers Celebration ~ Kimochi

Want to meet K’s new friends? Want to see what awesome toy we are using along with our new Feelings Tot Book?

When I stumbled across this product on another blog I was instantly intrigued. I went straight to their website to begin reading and was very impressed with this! I contacted the owner, who is a wonderful lady ;) and asked her to be a part of our celebration! Not only did she say yes, but she so kindly sent Krash his very own Kimochi Cloud and an extra feeling pack! What in the world is a Kimochi Cloud and a Feeling Pack, you ask? Well, let me tell you a bit about them!

These are the oh-so-cute Kimochis…

This is the Kimochi Cloud that Krash is now in love with…
The Cloud itself comes with the 3 feelings shown and we also got to try out this extra set! In our extra set there was one particular feeling that Krash was quite fond of…jealous! I have no idea why really, he barely understands what jealous even means, but he loves this little green guy!

When our Kimochi came in the mail I gave it to Krash and just let him explore…
Then we began to discuss the different feelings and we made their faces! Here he is beingsurprised…
Krash (and even Pac Man-age 7) has spent tons of time playing with his Kimochi, with and without me. For awhile he slept with a few of the little feelings (jealous included) but then we began to lose them in the covers so I made him stop sleeping with them!
I was so inspired by this toy that I also created a Tot Book all about feelings to kick off our new school year!!! We will be using our Kimochi along with our Tot Book to really work on identifying all of our feelings and how to handle them.

This toy is creative, open-ended, fun, and educational. It is well made, adorable and loved by my boys! I highly recommend a Kimochis, especially if you have a younger child who struggles with emotions at all. You can buy your own Kimochi here and read all of the wonderful ideas they have on their site!
