Melloneat Melon Slicer Set Review

Melloneat Melon Slicer Set Review

Melloneat Melon Slicer Set

The Melloneat melon slicer set comes with two melon slicers and a strawberry huller. I know in the video I call it a decorer but the technical term is “huller.” Each piece is individually wrapped inside the box pictured below.

Melloneat Melon Slicer Set Review

The strawberry huller is pretty simple to operate. You just squeeze down on the button, which opens the jaws of the little device. You then place it around the leaves of the strawberry and let it slide shut, thus removing the leaves from the fruit of the strawberry.

The melon slicers themselves are pretty slick. The blades aren’t very sharp, but each blade is different. One side has teeth, the other has holes. The blades are kept a uniform width apart by a thin piece of metal at the tip, although applying pressure does make the blades go closer to one another. This makes it so not only can you slice the melon out of the fruit (or apparently use it on cake), but you can flip the melon slicer over and grab the piece you just sliced by closing the sides around the food.

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.

Lace Wrappers for Cupcakes Review

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (aerial view)

Cupcake Lace Wrappers 100 Filigree Artistic Bake Cake Paper Cups

Sold By: Winnerbuy

These are some pretty cute cupcake wrappers. I would suggest using a little bit thicker wrapper while baking, such as a silicone cupcake wrapper. The lace wrappers had a hard time wrapping around cupcakes that I had used paper wrappers on, versus the silicone ones. My favorite way to use the lace wrappers though is pictured below, where I used a silicone mold of a paw print to make some cupcakes with leftover batter. They were such a hit that I made some for a dog loving friend of mine for their birthday.

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (aerial view)

They are pretty easy to use. The wrappers do seem to be best wrapped one way versus another, it pops apart pretty quickly if you go the wrong way. The wrappers helped keep the paw prints from sticking to each other, but the cupcakes did not stick to the lace wrappers.

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (side view)

Overall, I have been pretty pleased with these. They arrive flat and laid out nicely, although it is pretty simple to pop them up toe the lace wrappers that they can be.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Prextex Easter Eggs filled with Wind Up Toys And Easter Candy

By: Prextex

Sold By: Kids To discover

The presentation of these little eggs is definitely cute. They have the “Hoppity surprise” on the front, with the toys visible, nestled atop the little bags of candy. Prextex Easter eggs are a perfect little gift for a young one to receive. It comes packaged in a little egg so it is all ready for Easter egg hunting. It is easy enough to open the eggs to get to the toy inside. Also, the little bag of candy is sealed apart from the toy, so no issues of the toy getting sticky even in warmer weather.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

The contents of the egg are pretty simple. The toy sits atop the bag of candy. The bag of candy is sealed, holding a small handful of hard Easter shaped candies. The toy itself is a simple windup toy that hops around in a random manner, certainly not in a straight line.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Overall, I think the Prextex Easter eggs are a cute way to give a little one several cute hopping toys, and a small portion of candy. The packaging and the eggs themselves are vibrant and colorful, as are the toys and the candy inside. The candy is packaged in its own little bag so there is no worry of the toy getting sticky due to the candy. I like the variety of toys that come with this, there are two rabbits that I received and a chick, meaning this would work for both boys and girls.

I do definitely recommend this, it is absolutely adorable and my twins went nuts over the little toys (although due to their age parents’ kept the little candies to themselves).

Heart Pendant by Western Frontier Review

Heart Pendant by Western Frontier Review

Big Heart Pendant Necklace with Swarovski Crystal Set in Platinum

By: William Wang Designs

Sold By: Western Frontier

This is a very beautiful heart pendant. One thing I love about this pendant is how it looks, both from the front and from the back. The front gleams with the large stone set by the smaller ones around it. The back however has a metallic sheen to it, which I personally think is very pretty.

The heart pendant is a lot bigger than I was expecting. It is not huge by any means, but it is definitely very eye-catching. I have really enjoyed this necklace, and while I am not usually one for purple, the deep rich color of the stone is amazing.

Heart Pendant by Western Frontier Review

The weight on the pendant is a lot more than I was expecting as well. It does not have a cheap feel to it, it feels like if I were to actually pick up a stone this size, not something made of plastic.

The chain that the pendant is on is pretty nice, it is definitely not a long chain. It works for emphasizing the pendant though, bringing it close to the neck. So far I have not had any issues with the chain kinking, something I always worry about when I get a new necklace.

The breakout factor. I am allergic to some metals, and I have not had any allergic reactions to this pendant yet. That fact right there makes me really happy. I did want to mention it, because I know sometimes that is one thing I look for in a review on a necklace or a pendant, and it seems to be missing most of the time.

Tissue Paper-Craft Paper-Colored Paper Larger-19 2/3″ X 29 1/2″-Heavier Thicker (21GSM)-More colors 25 vibrant colors-100 Sheets Paper Crafts Pack in Bulk-Gift Wrap

By: Aspicio Products

Sold By: Redsigben

Colored Paper Review

This is some pretty solid colored paper. Included in this one small package is 25 colors and 100 total sheets of colored paper. It is sized at 29 3/2″ X 19 1/2″, which means it is perfect for using as stuffing in a gift bag, or to even wrap smaller presents.

Each sheet is pretty durable and allows for a lot more force to be applied than I was expecting. It does still get the rumpled look when used as gift wrapping, but it is definitely durable enough to be able to be used as such.

Personally, I like using bags and fluffing up the rest of the bag with this paper. Still no tearing, but the crinkly and fluffy aspect of the paper is ripe for filling in all that extra space and adding flair to a bag.

Overall, I have enjoyed using this colored paper and as of right now, would definitely recommend it. I always seem to have some event that I need to wrap a gift for, so having this on hand to quickly wrap something or add a little bit of flair to a gift bag is extremely nice.

Construction Toy Tools Review

Construction Toy Tools Review

The construction toy tools are pretty cute. It comes with 4 screws, 4 nuts, 2 plates, 1 multi-tool, a file, and construction apparel. The construction apparel consists of a nose mask, goggles, and a construction hat. Each piece barring the two tools is a very bright yellow, fitting with the construction theme. The handle for the file is red, and the multi tool is gray. The four screws are black and the 4 nuts are gray.

Construction Toy Tools – The Apparel

Construction Hat

Construction Toy Tools Review - Hat

The construction hat does not have really any way to secure onto the child (or adult’s head) but it does seem to stay somewhat well. I know it makes it easy for my twins to take it off of each other’s heads though!

Construction Goggles

Construction Toy Tools Review - Goggles

These looked so cute on both my twins. But I think what elicited the greatest of laughs was when I wore this, they both could not stop laughing at me. It was a snug fit around my head, definitely suited for more of a toddler sized head such as my twins, but it definitely fit well. Easy to see out of, but smudges a little bit easier than I expected.

Construction Mask

Construction Toy Tools Review - Mask

This was a piece that we had fun with. We did more “Star Wars” impersonations than anything else with this mask, I think the concept of this was more funny for the adults, both of my toddlers were just kind of confused over this piece.

Construction Toy Tools – The Tools

Plates

Construction Toy Tools Review - Plates

The plates gives a way to secure the screws and nuts once they have been tightened. The perfect size, and the plates allow for multiple combinations with the screws instead of just 4 holes to equal the 4 screws. I will say, the rectangular plate was a little bit bent upon arrival, but it did not affect the play ability of the plates.

Screws and Nuts

Construction Toy Tools Review - Screws and Nuts

There are 4 screws and 4 nuts. I have only 3 nuts pictured because my cat decided one of them was a toy and who knows where it ended up. So I can say that this set has been fun for the entire family, because not only did the toddlers and the parents have fun, but the cat had fun losing pieces for us!

Multi-Tool

Construction Toy Tools Review - Multi-Tool

The multi-tool has 3 ends. A flat head, a Phillips, and another end. I’d never really dealt with the third end, but my husband says it’s the same style as if you were changing a tire (something I have not ever really done). All 3 ends worked well with the screws and the nuts  and the handles were short, perfect for little toddlers’ hands.

File

Construction Toy Tools Review - File

This piece is more for show than anything else. It does have a bit of a scritchy noise to it when my finger nail is run along it, but other than that, it is just a pretty little piece of plastic. The file does detach from the handle, but it truly is the odd piece out in this set.

Overall, it has been a nice set, I know the twins have enjoyed playing with it (with supervision) and the adults, even the cat have enjoyed it too. I do recommend this set.

Birthstone Necklace Review

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

Birthstone Necklace Color Pendant

Western Frontier

My birthstone is sapphire. So naturally, I chose the vivid blue sapphire as my birthstone necklace on the listing. I want to start by saying, this is more a choker than a necklace. When I think of a necklace, I think of something that drapes down and at least goes a little bit past my collar bone.

The Amazon listing does have all 12 months listed (although they are in alphabetical, not chronological order). It comes in 2 other colors besides the birthstones, aurora boreal and vitrial medium. Both are stones that change color depending on the lighting.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

The birthstone necklace that I received, September is very pretty in my opinion. It also has a hefty weight to it. I was expecting this necklace to be dainty and frail, but no, this necklace fills up a good portion of my palm and feels very solid.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

The chain that the necklace comes with is as I said, more a choker length than a necklace length. I do like the chain though, except for one little part. The chain link that is in the back, that is supposed to help keep the back of the necklace in the back (I don’t know the correct terminology) has a little bit of a snag. It was a pretty easy fix, but one of the links look liked it was not supposed to be there. It had been clipped yet was still attached to the chain, causing two little points to jut from it. I found it easy enough to remove but I just wanted to caution on it before you wear it, it can be a bit prickly if you happen to have one with an extra little bit of link that should have been removed.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

Overall, it is a very beautiful birthstone necklace. It has a hefty weight to it, and it is a decent size. The chain is more choker length than necklace length. I do definitely recommend this, the September necklace that I received is absolutely gorgeous and pictures do not do it justice.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Plush Easter Basket, Bunny, Egg, and Chick

By Prextex

This is a super soft plush Easter basket. The basket itself is attached to the large and fluffy rabbit. Inside the basket is a soft duck and an egg. The egg is nestled between the wings of the duck on its back. Definitely a cute little set to give as a gift to someone, especially for someone like my twins who are a little bit younger. I could not resist and gave it to them before Easter, and it has been a huge hit. Stuffed anything is all the rage for my twins right now, and they let me know if I take a stuffed animal away too soon!

Below is the entire set, the rabbit with the basket, the duck and the egg.

Below is a view from the top to try and show how the duck has the egg nestled on its back.

Below is the rabbit and the basket by itself. This would make a good prop for if you wanted to have something else inside the basket, for the duck and the egg are fine standing up on their own.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Below is the duck, probably the least “plush” part of this set, and still incredibly soft.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Next, below is the egg. It didn’t want to stand up totally on its own, so I have it lying on its side.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Overall, a very cute plush Easter set, I know my twins have really enjoyed it, and it certainly is a great alternative to getting a real duck, or rabbit. Especially for the younger kids, such as mine, who are nowhere near that sort of responsibility yet.

I definitely do recommend this, very cute, and I just might get another before Easter hits so they can both have a set.

Kids Robe for Boys Review

Kids Robe for Boys Review

I did get the size 3-6, and my twins are obviously not that size. Currently (in the pictures) my twins are 19 months old, and about 31-32 inches in height. The robe drapes across the bottom of their feet when standing, and the sleeves are too long. But I have 2 19 month old boys, not 2 36 month old boys (3 year old boys), so that is completely understandable. The feeling of the robe is incredible soft and plush. It amazes me how different microfiber can feel when used in different ways (ie a cloth diaper microfiber insert does not feel like this robe, at least I’ve never felt an insert this plush or soft).

12810407_1755538054664698_287934106_o

The robe does have a thicker part near the neck to make a nice, fluffy collar. The shoulders width actually fit a lot better than I expected, but there was definitely a ton of room for an older child to expand in.

What made me chuckle a little is that this robe has little loops along the waist for the tie. I have them in my robe, but I did not know if a little kids robe would be deemed as needing them. Well, they’re there, and the tie for the robe is incredibly long, and made out of the same soft and plush material.

12776820_1755538084664695_970231700_o

Overall, I’ve been pretty impressed with this robe, and I do plan on buying another so that when bath time is done, instead of waiting for one to be done with the robe while the other is still in the water, I can give them both a soft and fuzzy robe to wear.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE. If you want the girls counterpart (with coral, royalty blue, pink and white as options) you can find that HERE.
