ZhuZhu Pet Fashion Closet Review And ZhuZhu Pet Giveaway!!

My friends at Zhu-niverse and MomSelect recently gave my daughter and I a chance to review the ZhuZhu Pet Closet and a colorful new ZhuZhu pet, and an outfit.  The outfits are so cute!!

Starting off the ZhuZhu Fashion Closet was very easy to assemble.  I'm sure my daughter could have done it (she's 7) but I did it for her, just in case.  It has a rotating conveyor belt that rotates when your pet "rolls" up the little ramp.  My son wasn't into the fashion part, but he did like having his ZhuZhu pets make the closet belt move around.  There is also a little drawer, and a hook off the side for the hats.  Yes, the outfits come with hats!  The only problem we saw, was the hats don't stay on their hat hooks very well.

Here's a picture of my daughter selecting an outfit for her next ZhuZhu customer.  The outfits snap on easily to the ZhuZhu Pet, and are easy to take off and change.  Same goes for the matching hats.  My daughter enjoyed mixing and matching the outfits for new looks.

Overall, we loved the ZhuZhu Fashion Closet.  If you have more pieces of the ZhuZhu Playsets, this would be a great addition!

Now, to the fun part!  I'm giving away a ZhuZhu Pet and a ZhuZhu Pet Outfit to one lucky reader (might be different than the one pictured above)!  Here's how to enter:

It's Official, Fall Craft Season Is Here!

Well, fall is officially here and my family is very excited.  First of all, the days of 100 degree temps are behind us.  But most of all, we have all the parties and festivals to attend!!  This year, like every year, I put my name way down on the room mom sign up sheet, I would only like to "assist", but I was chosen to be room mom for my daughter's class.  Thank goodness I'm only a helper in my son's class.  I have no idea why I signed up on both sheets!!  Anyway, I'm in charge of keeping the party moving with an activity, craft and snack.  Truth be told, I'm terrible at craft ideas.  I love making crafts, I just don't come up ideas on my own.  :)

So, wasn't I relieved when I received the following e-mail this morning:

Free Halloween Decorations eBook: 11 Easy Halloween Craft Ideas including centerpieces, wreaths, outdoor decorations, party props, kids' crafts and more. Learn how to make your own Halloween decor with these quick and easy tutorials from creative bloggers and craft manufacturers. Find a Spooky Halloween Bunting (pg. 7), Candy Corn Decor (pg. 11), a Spiderweb Lantern (pg. 19) and much more in this free eBook.

Woot woot!!  After looking through a few, I decided on the Baby Jar Pumpkins for the class party.  They look perfect for my age group, and will only require a little prep from me.  Here's what they look like:

Cute, huh?  For a complete list of ideas, click the link above or banner below.  They are great ideas for school crafts, homeschooling, or family night!


Have a fun and happy fall!

The New Disney/Epcot Treasure I Found, Signed By The Artist!

I recently found this little treasue while shopping for eBay inventory.  It's so cute and would go perfect in my kitchen.  The only thing is, it has an original signature by the artist, Rachel Tribble.  It's from the 2008 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival.  Ms. Tribble's sunflower image was the art used for the event's posters in 2008.

I have just listed it on eBay, so wish me luck!!
