"The Spitster" Reusable Sunflower Seed & Snack Cup Holder, 2 Cups in One #Giveaway

*Products Received*

The Spitster is a convenient, no mess, reusable sunflower seed and snack cup holder that is easy to use.  It fits into most automobile, truck, boat, tractor and lawn chair cup holders.  It is two cups in one.  The upper cup hold 6 ounces of sunflower seeds.  The lower cup is used to hold the empty shells.  You can use it to store many other things too.  The small cup fits inside the larger cup for easy storage.  To assemble the two cups just remove the smaller cup from the larger one.  Position the larger cup over the smaller one and line up the pin located on the bottom of the larger cup with the pin hole on the smaller cup.  The cups can be pressed together to close both cups or rotated to discard in the lower cup.  Then just fill with your favorite snacks and enjoy.  You can refer to the image above to see the different options.

My daughter was sent a purple Spitster and my husband received a green one.  They both love sunflower seeds and they especially love to eat them when we go on a long trip so this product is perfect for them.  Maybe now I will not find sunflower seeds all over the floor and seats of the car.  The Spitster is also great to store other snacks in as well such as pretzels, chips, and candy.  I really like that the larger cup has a lid attached to it so you can close up your snacks and keep them fresh.  Also my daughter's car seat has a cup holder built into it and I thought it would be great to store crayons and makers in the smaller cup and add a snack to the larger one to keep her occupied while riding in the car too.  This product is such a great idea.  I took some photos of our Spitsters and of my daughter eating pretzels in hers.



You can purchase your own Spitster for only $6.00 each, two for $10.00, three for $15.00 and if you buy four you get one free.  I think that is a great deal.  Plus the are made in the U.S.A.  To purchase your own and to learn more you can visit them at http://thespitster.com/.

Glitterins Magical Optical Science Toys, "Hold a Living Rainbow in Your Hand" #Giveaway

*Products Received*
Scientists have learned so much about the world and about light.  However, there is still so much to learn.  We have the gift of a world that allows for endless quests for answers, endless adventures, and endless fun to learn and find new things.


Glitterins Magical Optical Science Toys are great for getting the whole family together to experiment with polarized light.  Polarized light reveals rainbows that are hiding and you can even create art with it.  They are unlike any other science kits available.  They are the first and only toy ever made based on photoelasticity.  Their plastic toys are made like engineering models used to demonstrate photoelastic stress analysis.  You will not see the rainbow colors until you bend, squeeze, or stretch the toy.  This is because the plastic is made carefully to avoid any stress being applied during the curing of the plastic.  So by you bending the toy the rainbow colors will appear.  The colors will vary with the amount of stress you apply as well as with the various shapes within the toys.

Glitterins offers 5 different kits.  They have a Standard Kit, Deluxe Kit and 3 different Living Rainbow Kits.  I received the Deluxe and Standard Kits as well as some addition material and will be receiving the other 3 kits soon.  We have only had a chance to try out the deluxe kit so far but the deluxe has everything the standard kit has and more.  In our Glitterins Deluxe Kit it included 6 of the plastic toys, a light with batteries, an extra bulb, plastic plates, utensils, a prism and a bell.  It also included a magnifying glass, magnets, origami cellophane, tape, toy polariscope parts, black glossy cardboard and instructions.  

My family and I are still in the process of experimenting.  There are so many options and different ways to use the kit.  I will be posting another review soon after I have a little more time to try everything out.  The first thing we tried was using the magic green portal with the plastic butterfly figure.  We set it up by taking the base of the portal and folded it into a square, then we inserted the light and placed the green portal on top.  We put on the magic glasses taking turns and bending the butterfly to make rainbow effects.  I took a photo through the glasses with my camera so you all could see.  I took a few others as we tried different things.  I think it's really neat.






 We experimented using strips of the origami cellophane that we cut out into shapes pictured below.



We also added a shiny silver strip inside the base and then placed a round white sheet of paper on top of the base (which was included in the extra materials they sent) and placed the green magic portal on top of the paper.  We used the dolphin and tried the plastic plate and spoon.  There is also a photo of my daughter using the magic glasses with the butterfly outside using the blue sky which acts like the magic green portal.






Below is a photo of the inside of the Deluxe Kit and a photo of the additional materials I was sent.





What do you think about the kits so far?  You can visit their site to learn more and to watch some instructional videos by going to http://www.glitterins.com/.

Glitterins needs your help getting their products on the shelf at Walmart.  They have two products you can vote for.  Check out the videos and if you like their products then give them a vote.  You can vote daily until September 2, per facebook account.

The Back Master from Proliator #Giveaway

*Products Received*

I suffer from back pain very frequently due to various health conditions.  It is hard for me to get comfortable when sitting especially when riding in the car for a long period of time.  I have tried using basic pillows but they never really helped or gave me much support.  I recently came across the product, The Back Master, and I thought that product just might be what I need.  It is different from other products I have seen.  It is an air-filled adjustable lumbar support pad.  It has a hand pump that allows you to increase the amount of air in the built in air cushion so you can get the specific support you need.  To release the air all you have to do is twist the metal knob to the left.  To pump it back up, twist the knob back to the right and squeeze the rubber hand pump until you reach your desired support.

I contacted the company, Proliator and they were really nice and helpful.  They were even gracious enough to send me The Back Master to review.  To my surprise they also sent me the Lady Lumbar to try out as well.  Both product are wonderful.  I wish I had found these products sooner.  They give me the right amount of support for my back and they even give me some relief from my back pain while using.  The Back Master offers a little more support and is shaped differently than the Lady Lumbar.  Although I still can't decide which one I like the best.  The Lady Lumbar has a smoother feel to it which I like as well and it has a cute colorful design.




My daughter has taken over the Lady Lumbar as you can see from the above photos.  It took me a while to get it from her so I could try it out.  She told me that she was reviewing the product so she could tell the company what she thought too.  Her review in her own words, "I love it and it feels good and umm I like pumping up the air and letting the air out.  It feels like a balloon and a pillow and its soft and pretty.  Did they send this one for me?  Can I have it?".  So now you have another honest review for this product.  Did that convince you to purchase one of these great products for yourself?  You can tell that she is the child of a blogger. 

To purchase your own and to learn more you can visit their website at http://proliator.com/ .  They also have another product called, The Enforcer Back Brace, it comes in different sizes too.  I am really considering purchasing one for myself because if I stand or walk for long periods of time my back pain gets worse and it helps if I put pressure on it.  I have tried other back braces but they didn't give me the support I needed.  By reading the description I think that The Enforcer Back Brace might be a good option for me.

Kosmo Coolers, "The One and Only Free Standing Cooler" #Giveaway

*Product received*                          


About the company:
Kosmo Coolers was invented by an elementary Physical Education Teacher and Summer Day Camp Instructor in NW Arkansas, who became frustrated at the fact that coolers could not work independently on their own.  In order for the ordinary cooler to work you need a table to set it on.  After an outing to a local state park where he did not have access to tables or anything else to place the cooler on, he became frustrated and vowed to make a cooler that would be an independent operating system.  The  Kosmo Cooler  is an independent operating system that can work either as a table top drink dispenser or as a stand alone drink dispenser.



The Kosmo Cooler is the one and only free standing cooler.  It would be perfect for taking to your kids sporting events, picnics and even birthday parties if you plan on having a lot of guests attend.  You could take it anywhere you want.  We were sent the blue Kosmo Cooler.  It has some really great features.  I like that it has legs so that you don't have to sit it on the ground or find something to sit it on.  The cooler is 48" tall when the legs are extended and it stands 26" off the ground.  I also like that it has a 5 cup holder built into the lid of the cooler and holds 5 gallons of beverage too.  It is very easy to assemble as well. 

Place the cooler on the ground, then pull the string on each leg to release leg from the cooler body.  Extend each leg until the spring button clicks.  Lift the cooler up until the three legs hold the cooler up in a tripod position.  Push down on the tab located between each leg and cooler wall with all three legs.  This will then lock the legs in place.  Attach the strings at the bottom of each leg to the plastic clip.  Then you are all set up to enjoy. 

My daughter couldn't wait to try it.  We filled our cooler with bottled water.  I decided to keep ours up in the kitchen and I placed plastic cups on top, so now my daughter can get her own drink by herself whenever she wants.  The water doesn't come out too fast either so my daughter doesn't make a mess.  It works great and is very convenient.



This product is made in the U.S.A. which I think is very important.  If you would like to learn more or would like to purchase your own Kosmo Cooler you can visit them at www.kosmocoolers.com

You can also check out their video at the link below and vote for the Kosmo Coolers if you would like to help them get this product on the shelf at Walmart.

"Queetles" Comfy Critters with Global Missions #Review and #Contest

*Products Received*                         Queetles

Each Queetle has dedicated their life to bringing awareness and support to a specific cause.   From fighting cancer to saving our trees, Queetles are helping to teach kids about the importance of caring for each other and our planet.  5% of every purchase of each Queetle goes to a charity that supports their cause.

Queetles are cute little plush critters.  You can record messages using your own voice by pressing the button on the Queetles right hand.  To play the message back just press the button on their left hand.  To erase and record again just press the right hand of the Queetle again and create your new message.  My daughter was sent Wisp.  She loves it and I do too.  It is so much fun to play with, even my husband was playing with it too.  It even came with a little bag to store and carry it in.

The Queetle my daughter received, Wisp, loves to visit kids in children's hospitals to help them feel better, and he wants to help doctors learn new and better ways to fight cancer.  Adopting Wisp helps support the Clayton Dabney Foundation.  I have lost a lot of loved ones to cancer and I think it is very important to support charities that will help find a cure.

To learn more about Queetles visit them at http://www.queetles.com/.

The people at Queetles are currently making changes to their product to make it more plusher and have hired a larger company for the animation.  I think the Queetles are great as is but I guess there is always ways to improve any product.  Queetles are for kids 7 and up. 




Do you like the Queetles?  Would you like to help the company get these cute little critters on the shelf at Walmart?  Check out the video below and vote if you would like to help.  Voting ends September 2, you can vote daily per facebook account.

Check Out this Fun Game, Myrtle Ball #Giveaway

*Product received*                         Myrtle Ball

Myrtle Ball is a new revolutionary outdoor and indoor game that is fun for the whole family.  We really enjoyed playing it.  You can play with 2-4 players and it is scored to 15 points.  Players score points by rolling the balls into one of the buckets.  The larger bucket is worth 1 point and the smaller bucket is worth 3 points.  Points are scored per round, not per turn.  There are actually several ways to play so you can just create what works best for you.  My daughter always creates her own version of playing every game she has. Myrtle Ball is recommended to play in the sand at the beach but you can play it indoors too like we did. Below are the basic set up instructions.
Step-1. Set up your court.
          -Make a space on the hard sand to play on.  An 18ft long by 8ft 
           wide space works great. (Balls will not roll on softer sand)
Step-2. Place you buckets.
          - Dig 2 holes in the corner of your court which is closest to the 
            ocean.  Then place the buckets into the holes. (Make sure 
            buckets are level with the ground and fit tight into the holes)
Step-3. Dig your mote.
          - Dig an "L" shaped mote around your court; one side behind 
            the smaller bucket and one side to the left of the 2 buckets.
Step-4. Build your wall.
          - Use the remaining sand to build a wall behind the smaller 
            bucket and the mote to ensure that the balls will not leave the
            court.
Step-5. Finished!
          - Play!




Myrtle Ball is in the process of testing a new and improved version for backyards.  They are also working closely with manufacturing companies all over the U.S. to have their bucket, balls, and bags custom made.  I love products that are made in the U.S.A.  I feel like it is very important to buy products and support companies that choose to produce their products in America.  Also every year the Myrtle Ball company chooses a charity to sponsor for their Playing for a Purpose event.  Last year they did one at a local high school for a child who was diagnosed with leukemia, this year's selection is still undecided.  What a great company!

Below are a few photos we took of our experience with Myrtle Ball.
