Calorie Counter Band

Activity Tracker Band

Cel-Lab

This is a different fitness tracker. There is not much information to go with it, so I did have to figure out some stuff on my own. The band doesn’t want to stay paired to the app (once you find the app), so you will have to manually go in and set it. So far though, I haven’t really noticed anything negative aside from that. It has worked well at keeping the time, which is one of the big reasons I wanted something like this. Not only to have a calorie counter, but to be able to check the time without pulling out my phone.

Mini Foam Water Gun Review

Mini Foam Water Gun Review

Mini Foam Water Gun by Prextex

Sold By: Kids To discover

The mini foam water guns sold on Amazon come as a set of 4, with an extra bonus of a beach ball. I want to start off by saying that the mini foam water guns do work quite well at squirting water. My biggest issue with them however is how easy they are to flake the foam off. Not even a week of having them and the foam peeled off (mostly from my cat attacking them but some of it was not all because of my cat). That being said, I actually like the mini foam water guns sans foam. They fit my toddlers’ hands a lot better now, and they dry off a lot quicker.

The pumping action of the water guns is pretty smooth until the end of drawing water up into it. It does have a little bit of a jerk towards the end, but nothing that diminishes the amount of water it holds.

Overall, with the mini foam water guns, I am pleased with how well they work, even if I know have mini foam water guns without the foam any longer.

Mini Foam Water Gun Review

Also included is a beach ball. I like that something else is included with this, even if it is a token beach ball. I don’t know about anyone else, but my toddlers love beach balls. They’re easy to bat around and they’re big and colorful. This beach ball has seemed to hold air pretty well, I only have to touch it up with air every few days to keep its firm, round shape. So I actually am pretty happy with the beach ball.

Pedometer By Ozeri Review

Ozeri Pedometer Review

Ozeri 4x3runner Pocket 3D Pedometer and Activity Tracker

Sold by: Moderna Housewares LLC

The Ozeri pedometer is definitely different than other pedometers that I have used. There are a lot more functions on the pedometer than others, of course, most of the ones I have used I have gotten at a school event.

Ozeri Pedometer Review

I want to start by mentioning, getting the thing up and running took a little bit more than I expected. There is a pull tab underneath the battery that will need to be removed. I had to remove the battery to get the pull tab out from underneath the battery. The battery is spring-loaded so it did take a bit putting back into its little area, but the cover is easy enough to remove and replace which I like.

There are seven functions to the pedometer.  It records (I pulled this off of the packaging):

  1. Dual Walking & Jogging Modes
  2. Steps to Goal
  3. Fat Burned
  4. Exercise Time
  5. Calories
  6. Distance
  7. Speed

It is pretty easy to set up. The instructions for the pedometer were pretty easy to follow and I had it set up in less than 2 minutes. I love that it has such a high counter (it claims to record up to one million steps, I have not tested it quite to that limit yet.

I have not had any issues with this pedometer yet, I love seeing how much I actually do walk (or jog to catch up with my twins). I also want to mention, it is very secure in its clip, something that is paramount to being accurate with toddlers’ little fingers trying to grab onto everything.

Overall, two thumbs up. I definitely would recommend this, it is pretty easy to use and I love how it works.

Massage Ball & DVD by DanceCrazy Review

Massage Ball & DVD by Dance Crazy Review

DanceCrazy Deep Tissue Trilgger Point Muscle and Massge Premium Roller Ball

SalsaCrazy, Inc.

In my opinion, the massage ball is the best part out of this set. The ball is purchased separately from the DVD, and quite frankly it’s all that you need. The ball itself is incased in a hard plastic with a rubberized grip around the middle for easy grasping. The ball has a shiny blue tint to it, with swirls in the ball to give it a unique look.

Using the ball is pretty simple. Just use it where it hurts, and rub. It is a lot easier on the fingers and hands using this to give a massage, and it digs deeper than just thumbs can do.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.

DanceCrazy Muscle Massager Roller Ball DVD – Instructional Massage Rolling Ball

SalsaCrazy, Inc.

The DVD I was not too impressed with. It did have some useful stretches and tips that I think are nice, but honestly I could have winged using the massage ball and gotten the same effect. If you like having someone else walk you through the correct technique, this is a decent DVD, and it is slow enough that someone can follow along while using the ball, but fast enough that it is not boring.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.

Thoughts Overall

Overall, I definitely would recommend the massage ball, it has been really nice to use, both on myself and having another use on me. It digs in deeper than my fingers can and does not cause strain on my hands. The DVD I would recommend only for those who want step by step instructions on how to use the massage ball, but if you have the general idea of massages then you should be fine without it.

Vetra Water Bottle Review

Vetra Water Bottle

.

Sports Squeeze Water Bottle Leakproof Valve Hydration 650 ML Clear/Black/Blue

Vetra Sport Items

Vetra Water Bottle

The Vetra water bottle is definitely not the average water bottle. At first glance, it does appear to look like every other free water bottle that I have had handed out to me while journeying around on campus. The body is pretty nondescript in shape, and it only has a little bit printed on to the body of the bottle.

The lid at first glance seems pretty normal, until you look at it again. The lid is completely stationary, there is nothing to pop open or flip open, it is just there. It actually appears to work like a sippy cup, where suction or pressure needs to be exerted on the mouth piece to get liquid to flow through. I show in the video below that the water bottle does not leak when turned upside down unless pressure is exerted on the body of the water bottle.

It actually is really easy to apply suction to the Verta water bottle and get liquid, it certainly is a lot easier than trying to get anything from my toddler’s sippy cups! My toddlers did not have any issues with this, so I definitely think it is an easy to use water bottle, but it certainly has a unique design.

Overall, I definitely would recommend this water bottle. While at first glance, it looks like every other water bottle I’ve gotten for free, it has a unique design to the lid that makes it stand far above the rest.

Boomerz Best Dog Set Review

Boomerz Best Dog Set Review

.

Hands free Running Leash Park Pack Bundle Includes Collar, Dog Whistle with Lanyard, Portable Water Bowl and Greenies Dog Treats

Boomerz Best

The Boomerz Best set comes with a dog collar, as I call it a human collar, a leash, treats, a bowl and a dog whistle. I was surprised at how well the dog collar fit, even with my dogs fluffy fur. It also fit the human too, a lot better than I was expecting.

Boomerz Best Dog Set Review

Below is listed what is on the Amazon site, I think it sums up a quite nicely what is included in the set.

• Hands Free Running Dog Leash with bungee cord technology extends to 60 inches, giving your dog room to happily run alongside or in front while giving you full control
• Dog Collar adjusts for a neck size of 17-inch to 27-inch; Suitable for Rottweiler, Ridgeback, Bouvier, Labrador and similar sized breeds
• Greenies Dog treats- As the top vet-recommended dental chew,* GREENIES Dog Dental Chews provide a daily treat while controlling plaque, tartar buildup, and bad dog breath
• Portable Dog Travel Water Bowl has a collapsible, no spill design.Can be used for water or food.
• Dog Whistle with Lanyard- Adjustable pitch, simply tighten or loosen the screw to work out your dogs frequency. It should be noted that this whistle is audible to the human ear which is essential for gauging its efficiency.

I do definitely think the set works, it is nice not having to constantly fight with my wrist and my dog. He has enjoyed it, and it seems like it will last quite a long time. The reflectiveness is extremely nice, since the best time to take the dog out seems to be after dark (not as many people out and about and he gets so excited about people!).

Brisk Bars Review

Brisk Bars Review

.

My first bite of a Brisk Bars, I definitely felt the energy practically zing through me. It certainly was a taste I was not expecting in the slightest. The taste alone got me up and running to the refrigerator, to get a glass of milk. These are pretty bitter little bars, but they are effective. The bars themselves are actually two “doses,” I only eat half of one at a time and feel like I’m bursting with energy. I will admit, after that first bite, the shock factor was not there, and it was actually pleasant to eat. Definitely not what I am used to eating, but I did not feel like I needed to run to the refrigerator to get a glass of milk.

Brisk Bars Review

The pack that I got, a 4 pack, has lasted me quite a while. I feel like I only need one a day, and only on days that I truly need a pick me up (or nights really). I will caution eating this if you are wanting to sleep any time in the near future after ingesting this, if you are anything like me you will not be able to sleep a wink for quite a while after munching on it.

Brisk Bars Review

Even staying up late with a toddler teething, this has helped me to power through anything that I set my mind to. I definitely recommend this, it has been an interesting experience to be sure, and it definitely gives me energy. Just be prepared for a very bitter taste dancing across your tongue that first bite, to put a spin on an old saying “the first bite is the worst.”

Exercise Ball – the Forever Flex

Live Infinity Exercise Ball

.

This is truly a sturdy exercise ball. The exercise ball from Forever Flex, the Live Infinity, is an exercise ball that is perfect for recreational use or just for improving balance. I like to use this when I’m sitting at the desk or table, it helps keep my core tighter.

Airing up this beast can be a little daunting. Even between my husband and I it took a solid 20 minutes. A little trick for this. Air this up with your lungs like you would a balloon, it is something we should have done. Something my husband thought to do after we had been trying for 10 minutes. 3 minutes of blowing air into it, and it was most of the way aired after that, just needed 7 more minutes of pumping and trying to get the plug in before it deflated too much to get it to the desired tension.

Sitting on the exercise ball is no easy task for those who are vertically challenged, aka clumsy. My husband and I both have issues with balance, it didn’t help that the first time either of us tried to sit on this we were both in stitches laughing. Getting used to it though came quickly. I actually enjoy using this as a chair, it forces me to sit up straight and it’s actually comfortable to sit on. Also, I can roll where I want to go.

When I’m not sitting on this, my twins love to play with this. They bat it back and forth. Also, this ball is incredibly bouncy, it is able to clear three feet without any effort, a simple toss will get that. Applying force makes the ball rocket into the air, much to the giggles and delight of my twins.

Overall, I really enjoy this. It is a pain to get it aired up but it holds the air well. It also is good for more than just exercise and improving balance, it is something my twins love, a big bouncy ball.
