B kids sent me a Ducky Spout bathtub toy to review on my dad blog. I’m a little too old for a bath toy, so I gave it to my little toddler to play with it. He loves it. The dedee duck toy is cute and entertains my three-year old son during bath time. The B kids Ducky Spout bathtub toy is currently available on Amazon for $23.99. And thanks to B kids, you can try to win the ducky bath toy on my blog.
Chuggington sent me their new Wilson’s Wild Ride Deluxe Action Playset for review and giveaway on my dad blog. I think Christmas has arrived early for my toddler because he loves trains and he really loves this train set. I love this set too because it’s sturdy, and easy to assemble and reassemble. This is important if you have a toddler like mine. My son has a habit of taking track sets apart. Then I have to put it back together again because most kits are too hard for him to reassemble by himself. That’s not the case with the new Tomy die-cast train set. My son doesn’t have any problem putting the tracks back together by himself after he does his Godzilla impersonation.
Graco is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of their Pack ‘n Play by giving away their new Pack ‘n Play Playard with Reversible Napper & Changer on my dad blog. We don’t own the new one, but in the past, we’ve owned a couple of their older playard models. They are nice and convenient. Other parents agree too. Since 1987, over 30 million caregivers have picked Graco as their playard of choice.
B. toys is turning one today. For some reason, I thought they have been around for ages. I didn’t realize they are only a year old. Happy birthday, B. toys! To celebrate, the eco friendly toy company is giving away 10,000 specially designed onesies. Here’s my toddler in one of the B. You onesies they are giving away:
Last year, when an eczema bleach bath study was published in the Pediatrics journal, I was crossing my fingers for our one-year old toddler (he has very severe eczema). The treatment is suppose to reduce symptoms of chronic eczema (atopic dermatitis). According to the buzz in the media, a bleach bath is practically a miracle treatment for eczema. In reality, the treatment doesn’t cure eczema, but it is suppose to help significantly. This year, our dermatologist finally gave us approval to try the bleach bath treatments for eczema on our little toddler.
HoMedics sent me a SoundSpa Lullaby for review. I love it. My wife loves it. Even the little one likes it. The SoundSpa Lullaby is a device for soothing babies, toddlers, and dads (I’m serious, the SoundSpa Lullaby can help parents fall asleep too). It’s a combination mobile and sound machine. But instead of an actual mobile, the SoundSpa Lullaby projects the rotating images on a ceiling or wall. My wife and I bought a motorized mobile before. We hated it. The motor was too loud and annoyed the heck out of us. The baby didn’t like it either and we eventually returned it. The SoundSpa Lullaby, on the other hand, is whisper quiet when the audio is off (separate on/off switches for audio and projector).
Little Disney turns one on Wednesday (March 3rd). He had a rough first year [H1N1; seizures; food allergies: milk, eggs, peanuts, tomatoes, and shrimp; Failure To Thrive (FTT) Syndrome; severe eczema (his skin is rough like a lizard and he scratches himself bloody); and acid reflux]. Hopefully his second year will be much better.
On the positive side, Little Disney started walking a month ago. And thanks to the feeding tube, he’s now in the 25th percentile (weight). Unfortunately, he still doesn’t eat and the doctor won’t take him off the IV until he’s in the 50th percentile (will probably take another year – ugggh).
Happy Birthday, Little Disney! Daddy and mommy loves you very much.
