Greenzys Review

I am trying to raise environmentally responsible children, so I was really excited to discover Greenzys. Greenzys is an eco-friendly brand that creates “green” products for children. Greenzys also teaches community and social responsibility by donating a portion from each purchase to the Environmental Media Association and the Arbor Day Foundation. We received a plush Greenzys penguin named Peat. Peat is made from soy products and non-toxic dyes. He is soft and cuddly and he won my daughter’s heart right away. She has slept with him every night since he arrived at our house! Peat had a tag attached to him that said “Buy Me, Plant a Tree”. We thought that was pretty neat, so we followed the instructions and visited the Greenzys website at and clicked on the “Plant a Tree” link. We arrived at the page below and filled out the required fields. We received our certificate that said we planted a tree, but unfortunately the name field was blank, despite the fact that I filled out my daughter’s name. Thankfully, she wasn’t too concerned about it. Greenzys makes several other plush characters that are seen in the certificate picture above. Each character has a cute little story that you can read when you click on them on the Greenzys website. The Greenzys characters wipe clean, which we got to test when my daughter got some pizza on...

dB Logic Earphones – Review

Earphones and I have always had a problem. I like the small type of earphone that you just put in your ear, but I have small ears and they never fit…resulting in sore ears and/or the earphones always falling out of my ears. This isn’t very helpful when running on the treadmill and I REALLY need music to keep me going! My son bought himself a brand new iPhone 4, and being the nice kid that he is, he gave me his old iPod Touch (he gave Dad the last iPod he had, so it was my turn). I like the iPod Touch, but the only headphones we had in the house were really big ones that don’t work well when you’re sweating a lot…so I went in search of earphones. I bought a cheap pair that fit my ears, but the sound was crackling and distorted, so I still didn’t use the iPod. When I heard about the dB Logic ear/headphones, I knew we had to have some. I thought they would be great for my little ears, since they are designed for Teens and Adults, and I was intrigued with the idea of Healthy Listening Technology. These earphones and headphones are supposed to give a great sound, while not reaching volume levels that can damage your hearing. They offer low distortion and sound pressure level limits without requiring...

The Way Home DVD Review

I chose this DVD from Book Sneeze because I love movies that are based on true stories, and it sounded like one I would enjoy. The story is about a family that is going through a stressful time, with the mother feeling alone and the father (Dean Cain) working all of the time. The dad is left to watch the kids one day and gets distracted by work, only to have his two year old son disappear. The community rallies to find the missing boy, and the parents reconnect with their Faith in God and with each other. The movie was interesting enough to keep me off of the internet while I watched, which is no small feat. Since I am the parent of a two year old, it hit a little too close to home and I wondered if I could actually watch it, but I stuck it out. My husband and my six year old daughter also watched the movie, and we all agreed that it better have a happy ending! There were some great lessons in the movie; about putting your family and God first and not getting so wrapped up in your work that you forget what is really important. The community support was heartwarming, and after the movie I went online and searched to see if they truly had so much help in searching...
