Smarty Ants: Wolfie.


This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and SmartyAnts.






I am excited because I'm getting to do a review with my son Nicholas.
This review I am doing is called Smarty Ants.
I revived the Smarty Ants kit which includes software and an animal to help your child read.
Move over Teddy Rupskin, hello" Wolfie".
Nicholas immediately took to the dog who talks, and sings,
and moves his head and lips. It was amazing.
Nicholas' dog "Wolfie" is a fluffy, soft puppy toy. He stands about 11 inches tall. He comes to your home with 10 songs downloaded to help your child know the alphabet, letters, sounds, and rhyming-among other things.

Nicholas named him Wolfie.

Nicholas loved his dog Wolfie so much, he took him into the bathroom with him.
Nicholas learned to sit on the POT while listening to Wolfie.

Adorable.
Something to think about for a Christmas present to someone you
love- a little someone you love.

Tamron Lens Review.

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Tamron.




How many times a day do you take a picture of your life or children?
I take about a million a day. Well, not really, but close.
I decided to use my Tamron AF18-270 lens to capture minutes before the girls and their Dad went on the first annual daddy-daughter camp out.
I loved the way it was so easy to take close up's as well as far away photos. It was so crisp, clear, and colorful. It was amazing.
The lens is hearty, yet light enough to carry around to take photos.
It is a convenient fast changing lens, good enough that even I can hurry whip off the normal lens to the AF18-270 in a hurry and still catch the action.
Check out these beauties here.
These pictures were taken seconds of each other.
Same position.
Same pose.
And I stood in the same spot the whole time.
It really can take close-ups.

With just one touch of my finger.






My kids are digging it too.



They love how easy it is to do Barbie's make-up with their fingers on the screen.






Mr. Nielson loves it because it makes him feel like a futuristic spaceship commander as he flicks the screen with his finger tips moving multiple applications around juggling the experience.



Mr. Nielson also likes the machines crisp interface with SKYPE using the webcam and microphone etc.






I also love that I can change the color of the ambiance light to any color imaginable.



Right now it is a lovely shade of yellowish-green.
