Jump Over to Launch Trampoline Park

As a mother, we are always looking for cool new places to take our kids. While parks and beaches are great, we all know sometimes kids need a little variety. They need a place to get out all of that energy. They need a place where they can jump around and not get yelled at. How about a place where they can throw balls at one another and not even get yelled at for that?

I have just the place for you.

Launch Trampoline Park.

My girls and I recently took a trip to the new Launch location in Milford, CT. I first found out about it through some promotions going on at my local movie theater. It was one of those places I put on my “I’ll surprise the kids if they’re good some day” list. Well, they were good one day, so they got surprised.

When we got there and my kids saw all there was to do, they didn’t know where to turn first. Once I signed the waivers and bought their special Launch socks, we were ready to jump. We started off at the large trampoline area. They jumped from square to square. Honestly, I think they stayed there for at least a half-hour. Then it was off to shoot some hoops. Jumping to try to get a basket was a lot of fun too. But, I think the part they enjoyed the most was the dodge ball area. One of the benefits of going on a low-traffic day is that there aren’t a lot of kids to compete with for space. So, if you want to get the most out of your visit, I would recommend going this route. My kids played a friendly game of dodge ball with a couple of other kids and had so much fun! In fact, I wish I could have joined in! (Maybe next time)

Besides just having fun all around, the Launch Trampoline Park is a great place for kids to get some exercise. According to a NASA study, scientists show that rebounding on a trampoline is 68% more effective than jogging. As a nation that is constantly battling childhood obesity, any time a child can get out and exercise is good. If they can have fun at the same time, then it’s a bonus!

Besides all the trampoline fun, the Launch Trampoline Park also has a game area and food court. So, you can really make it an afternoon of family fun! You can even schedule your child’s birthday party. Joey the kangaroo would love to meet you!

Review & Giveaway: KidloLand App

As a parent, we’re constantly looking for innovative ways to teach our children. Whether you love it or hate it, we all know technology plays a huge role in the way our children learn. Our kids are much more tech-savvy at three-years-old than we ever were!

With that said, the market is flooded with apps and games aimed at teaching our children. Some teach colors, others teach numbers; still others aim to do both while entertaining our kids at the same time. Trying to find an app that does everything isn’t always easy.

That’s where KidloLand comes in. KidloLand is an app that has it all. It not only has well-known kiddie songs and nursery rhymes, but also neat games to teach numbers, shapes, and even the months and days. It’s geared towards kids ages 0 to 5. I recently had my 4 year-old experiment with the app. She enjoyed the games focused on numbers, colors, and shapes. As a parent, I found the KidloLand app to serve as a fun reinforcement to some of the lessons she has already learned in pre-school. The numbers activity helps kids with numbers from 1 to 100, so it is great for all kinds of stages in your child’s life.

The months of the year and days of the week is also a wonderful addition, especially for the pre-Kindergarten set. One of the great things about the KidloLand App is that you can feel at ease that your child is using technology to help learn, not waste time. I wish I had it at my fingertips when my kids were younger!
If you want to see how the KidloLand App can help your kids on their learning adventure, here’s your chance! KidloLand is offering FIVE people a FREE three-month subscription for you and your child to try out.

Review & Giveaway: Stickerkid

Your child goes to school and two other kids have the same lunch bag as she does. The “sticky” label you put on falls off. The other kids don’t have a label on their bags. The kids don’t know which bag belongs to who until they start going through what’s inside.

It’s a Kindergarten nightmare.

Ugh.

You could keep trying to put on your own “sticky” labels or you could try something new. For some reason every time I put a label on a lunchbox, book bag, or something else, it comes off. It’s annoying!

So, what’s a momma to do?

How about trying some new personalized stickers that work and look cool at the same time?

stickerkid1

I recently tried out some labels from Stickerkid. These labels are great because not only do they stick well, they are also fun to design. You can choose labels for belongings or clothing. I chose ones for belongings. Once you choose which ones you’re going to go with you can customize them. You can pick your own design to suit your child’s personality. You can even add your child’s photo. There’s no mistaking who belongs to what items if you do this!

Stickerkid labels are great for school, daycare, and even camp. They’re even good for inside the house if you have more than one child. This way you can tell who belongs to what minus the arguments.

If you want to try labels from Stickerkid, here’s your chance. The Mommy Rundown is partnering with Stickerkid to give away $20 worth of labels plus free shipping. Enter here! Good Luck!

Review & Giveaway: The Knot Genie

We all know getting a child to sit still to brush hair is more than difficult. Add a few tangles and knots in the mix and it’s a nightmare.

The brush gets stuck in their hair.

They yell “ouch”.

They don’t sit still.

They get annoyed.

You get annoyed. All in the name of not looking like they just rolled out of bed and haven’t brushed their hair in a week.

Sigh.

If you have little girls, you know exactly what I’m talking about. That’s why I was super excited to try out The Knot Genie.  At first, my girls looked at me like I was crazy. But, when I told my older daughter, who is notorious for tangles and knots, she got excited too.

So, after getting dressed one morning, I put The Knot Genie to the test. I was amazed at how easily I was able to brush out the nasty tangles!

 

Before The Knot Genie

Before The Knot Genie

 

I didn’t have to give the brush an extra tug nor did I have to hold the top of my daughter’s head. The secret is in the brush’s different shaped teeth. This allows the knots to come out without pulling the hair out from the root. This has happened to us countless times; thus all the screaming.

After The Knot Genie

After The Knot Genie

 

 

The Knot Genie glided down my daughter’s hair until all the tangles were gone and her hair looked lustrous and smooth.  My daughter was extremely happy because it was a painless and quick process! She liked it so much she started to brush the back of her hair too.

Now, the Knot Genie has become part of our morning and night time routine. It can become part of your’s too!

Just enter below for your chance to win one for yourself! Good Luck!

Baby Bullet Giveaway

Magic Bullet: BABY BULLET!

(Disclaimer: Mom’s Gone Bronson received the following for review and all thoughts are her own. Your views may differ, thank you!)


Everybody! Gather around and meet the Magic Bullet: Baby Bullet – the simplest, easiest and most convenient way to make your own baby-food, from scratch, at home, just the way your baby is going to love it and with all the goodness and nutrition he or she is going to need! The Mommy Rundown is helping to spread the word about the product & a giveaway! 

For as long as I can remember, I have cooked from scratch and I love to feed my children good, healthier foods without any of the added sugars, sweetners or other products that just simply do not have to be there and I have always mashed and smashed and smoothed the hard way – though have managed to get the job done!

The Baby Bullet really takes out all of the stress that goes along with the baby-food-mashing olympics, though, with its 2 stainless steel blades, high-torque power base, 3 piece batch bowl and storage and mixing accessories!

To make life even easier, the Magic Bullet: Baby Bullet comes with a guide full of recipe ideas for baby and includes goodies from a simple fruit or veg for babies eating for the first time, through to those eating mixed, thicker or a little more complex varieties as they grow!

The Baby Bullet really does take you through the first stages of baby-feeding and lasts beyond! You can always make apple sauces, blends, smoothies, even ice lollies from fruit and veggies and none of the added stabalizers or unnecessary sugars! Great!

I personally LOVE apple and raspberry sauce and my children can never have enough! Making a soup is easy with the Baby Bullet and anything I am making for myself, I can put into the Baby Bullet and have it ready to go for little mouths with the push of a button!

I am actually thoroughlly impressed with this cute little contraption and you can’t help but smile seeing that big grin staring back at you every time you whip up a batch of goodness for the kids! 

The Baby Bullet actually comes with a storage tray and storage cups, which are just the perfect size for babies to toddlers and make a great way to treat yourself without going overboard, too!

Make a weeks worth of meals in less than 5 minutes, which is just what you want when planning with a house full! I know I can cook up some goodness, throw it in the Baby Bullet and freeze it down ready to go!

My children LOVE the cute cups and are happy to reach for an apple sauce in a smiley cup then something that isn’t perhaps so great for them! I love that I can wash the entire set out and save on trash and recycling with this set and there are just so many bonuses to making your own food, period.

I really wish The Baby Bullet had been available when my older children were babies, but delighted that I have been able to try one out now! It is just the perfect size to make the perfect children’s portions and will keep me going back for more as I learn new recipes and goodies that I still want to try! 

I would definitely recommend giving one a try if cooking for your little one is something that you have been thinking about – I think the Baby Bullet is a really good start! It doesn’t take up very much space in your kitchen, either and so you can always have it ready to go!

If you would like to find out more about The Baby Bullet, you can find them on Twitter, Facebook and over at their blog, with other outlets such as Pinterest and Instagram to keep you in touch, which you can also find in our giveaway form!
