Zipit - a brilliant new collection of babywear with zippers. A happier, simpler way to dress little ones without wrestling clothes over wobbly heads or fussing with fiddly snaps. Zipit is full of smart, fuss free features like a Pooper Peeper for discreetly checking if it’s time for a diaper change and a unique ankle-to-neck zipper that lets you unzip to the waist for high-speed diaper changes. The entire collection features sweet, simple styles with fresh colors that are as wearable as they are adorable.
We got a Happy Playsuit in Chocolate/Clear Blue. The soft, rich 100% cotton knit is machine washable. Ankle to neck full front zipper opening with pinch free placket for easy dressing.

Camp The Boardgame

When the winter winds are howling and most of the country is being blanketed by snow, put an end to you and your kid’s cabin fever boredom with a dose of summer outdoor fun in your living room. Construct a tent with blankets, toss in a few flashlights and settle in to play Camp, the board game. Your kids will be able to experience a taste of the outdoors and reminisce about last summer’s adventures as they answer questions about wildlife, camping skills and other outdoor trivia while they race their game pieces around the board to be the first back to the campsite.
Camp is a game where both children & adults can play & learn fun facts about the great outdoors. The game is designed to grow with the player, starting at level one questions, which are primarily identification of animals. As the players increase in their knowledge about the outdoors, they grow into the higher level questions. A fun & educational game where parents & children can play against each other to get to Camp first. Game includes: 1 game board, 199 game cards(400 questions, and 99 fun facts), 1 decoder, 8 game characters, 1 die, 16 level cards, and 1 compass card. This was a great game to play with all of our family over the holidays! We had so much fun! And it was really cool that the kids could play with the adults!

DealDash is Fun!

There are so many places for shopping today. Little shops downtown, huge stores in the outskirts, glossy malls, flee-markets in the old city centers and in out of use stables out in the countryside. Woo, a choice for all tastes! And then there is the Internet with its regular virtual shops and its more exciting penny auctions. Like with DealDash. But, who's DealDash?

Check out this DealDash Review: DealDash is a next generation penny auction company that has a site in which saving money when you buy is fun. DealDash is based out of New York, NY and Helsinki, Finland. The Finnish half focuses on building the software and creating the experience known as Because please note, that shopping on the Internet is not necessarily only shopping - a simple act of purchasing something - but an experience. The American half concentrates on markets, selling and customer services in the US market. That sounds like an intelligent division of labor, Americans definitely know how to sell and treat clients nicely, whilst Finland seems to have some sort of overgrowth in talented computer specialists.

In any case, Deal Dash is a fun place to shop and score great deals! Check it out!

Wits & Wagers

Our family was able to try out Wits &Wagers from North Star Games. Not a trivia buff? It doesn’t matter! Each player writes a guess to a question such as “In what year did the bikini swimsuit make its first appearance?” or “How many feet wide is an NFL football field?” and places it face-up on the betting mat. Feeling confident? Bet on your guess. Think someone else knows better? Bet on their guess. Strike it big and you’ll be cheering like you just hit the jackpot!
So much fun to play in a group. We played over the holidays, and had a blast! Super fun! Check it all out at North Star Games on Facebook!
