The Monday Review, and Giveaway!!!

The Monday Review is a new series that will be posted every Monday featuring newly reviewed products, and some really great giveaways to go along with it.

Kooky Klickers



These are super cute little pens. My daughter absolutely fell in love with her Kooky Klicker. The Kooky Klicker is a six inch ink pen that has a silly little face and bouncy hair. New Klickers are released throughout the year, making them a great collectible item for your little "writer". They are so much fun to use, that my daughter wants to write and draw all day.

Kooky Klickers are available at independent and national specialty stores. They range in price from $3.00 to $5.00 (making them a great stocking stuffer). Another great gift idea would be to purchase a silly little Kooky Klicker and a cute note book, what a great way to inspire creativity. They seem to make writing a little more fun for the little ones, and big ones too. I have to admit when I write with my Klicker I just want to smile.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment

I don't know about you, but I have a terrible problem with dry chapped hands during the winter months. I know it doesn't help that I wash my hands every five minutes or so. I have tried so many creams, lotions, and treatments on my hands to keep the moisture in and prevent them from cracking, but nothing worked. Nothing worked, that is, until I tried Aquaphor Healing Ointment. The healing ointment is thick and reminds me of Vaseline a little. It is fragrance free and goes on clear. The really neat thing about this product is that you can use it for so many different things. It can be used for dry chapped hands, chapped lips, and can even be used on baby for dry skin and diaper rash. Aquaphor is available everywhere and ranges in price from $3.50 to $16.99.

iFrogz iPod Nano Case



The iPod Nano Case is really neat. It is a little case made from silicone that protects your Nano. The case is very durable, and designed to repel dust and lint. Lets face it, the iPod Nano costs a lot of money and I think it is a great idea to protect that big investment as much as possible. The iFrogz iPod Nano case retails for $9.99, and can be purchased at www.iFrogz.com. They are available in a variety of colors. This would also be a great stocking stuffer for your music lover (if they have a Nano).


Jimi Wallet



How neat is this. This wallet is called a Jimi wallet, and is designed to make it easier and more compact to carry all of your important cards and money around. The Jimi wallet is made from recycled materials. It is small, water resistant, and you can see through it. This would be a great gift for someone who travels a lot or a child who has to keep a school id. The Jimi Wallet can be worn around the neck, tossed in a backpack, or easily stored in a pocket for super quick access. This would also be a great idea if you are taking a trip to a water park or theme park. You can place your ID, hotel key, and money in there without having to tote around a large wallet. The Jimi wallet is priced under $15.00, and can be purchased online at http://www.thejimi.com/wheretobuy/index.php. You can also find a list of local retailers who carry the product there too.

Great give aways. Does the I-Pod come with the cover (just joking).
I like reviews about tote bags,and different types of pocket books. The bigger the bag the better. (with no middle divider piece)

I have four kids that span the ages 9 months to 8 years so anything kid related interests me. On the other hand, I don´t ever seem to get around to looking into much Me-related stuff be it cosmetics, clothing or other. I appreciate getting the "heads up" from others who find a real "find" and share the news. If that makes sense.

I'd like to see some reviews of diaper bags that are well organized but don't necessarily look like diaper bags. I'd also like to see some different options for helping mom lose the baby weight, and other me-stuff although I do enjoy finding new kids' stuff.
