I'm sorry I have neglected Friday Favorites the past few weeks. As Christmas is so quickly approaching, my plan is to share some of our favorite toys/products from now until Christmas in hopes that it may help you just a little with your shopping. I feel so overwhelmed when going to a toy store with SO many options and products to choose from. I find that other trustworthy parental reviews help tremendously in making my decisions and in simplifying things, so ... I hope to share some of our PERSONAL favorites to help make your shopping just a tad bit less confusing this year!

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Workbench

Recommeded Age - 6 months - 3 yrs
Wilson LOVES this toy (at 13 months now)
I love how long it entertains him and it is also very educational! A gift from Wilson's cousin(s) and they always pick the best gifts to give, and this time was no different!

Another product that is perfect in so many ways for children of almost ALL ages are the CRAYOLA COLOR WONDER products. We discovered these when Ella was probably 18 months old. And she STILL loves them (at 4 yrs of age)! They are GREAT to keep in the car, as they are a lifesaver in restaurants. They make no mess ... the markers only work on the Color Wonder Paper. Crayola makes them in every character your child loves, and also plain paper notebooks for your child to be creative on his/her own.

Sorry the images are blurry.
You can buy these products pretty much anywhere from Target, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, even CVS. However, I saw where Oriental Trading (love that company) is now selling many of the Color Wonder products, and as all their pricing is, inexpensive compared to many other retailers. And if you use your Ebates to order, you receive an additional 4% cashback on all purchases with free shipping of $49 or more. Just an idea if you have other online purchases to make. Sometimes online shopping is so much easier, especially for busy moms with little ones always in tote!

A reminder to sign-up for getting PAID to shop online here ... and remember that I only recommend products/companies that I PERSONALLY know are reputable and trustworthy! My last Ebates check was for almost $70 just for signing in before purchasing!


  1. So glad to see Wilson enjoys his workbench. AC enjoys it as well, and I'm thankful to have one "boy" toy to pass down to her little brother. Great seeing y'all today!

  2. I am so excited about theses posts! I'm definitely taking notes! :)
    thanks for the comment about toys that your kids have enjoyed - it is always SO helpful to hear it from other mom's and not just a general review on a website! Hope you had a great weekend :)
