Fun Finds For Kids and Babies!

I don't know if it's just a "mom thing", but I get a lot of pleasure out of researching and finding adorable, fun, and awesome products and designs for my kids.

Absolute cutest kid wall EVER. . . found!!!

Isn't that just adorable beyond words??? I fell in love with it the second I saw the Scroll Tree MegaPack from RoomMates Peel and Stick Decor. The RoomMates website is one of the best I've seen for wall decals, featuring tons of variety for every room in your home! Here's why I totally love 'em:

*Their products are completely innovative! They have peel-and-stick mirrors (genius!), and chalkboard and dry erase decals that can be repositioned at any time. The endless options for using these in playrooms and kids' bedrooms are just spinning through my mind!
*These are the easiest things in the world to apply! Seriously. . . just peel and stick. If you make a mistake, you can just pull it off and position it again, since these are removable and can be reused over and over again.
*RoomMates leave no residue behind and are totally safe for your paint. They can attach to any smooth, dry surface, and they are non-toxic and safe for children to play with.

They literally do have designs for ANY decor or design style, and my favorite are their kid designs. They're very affordable too! The whole mega-pack that comes with everything to create the adorable Scrolled Tree scene (80 decals total!) is $40.49!

I have really loved being an Infantino Test Drive Mom, and the latest product they sent for me to try out just makes me happy. . . the Infantino Savvy Bag Baby Changing Clutch!
If you ever feel weighed down by a huge, heavy diaper bag (my hand is raised for sure) and want something smaller and lightweight, you'll love this. Since I have more than one small child I usually have to heft my huge diaper bag around, but this bag is perfect for going on outings with just one child. Some stuff to note about it:

*I love the bright, happy pattern! Seriously cute!
*I love the removeable changing pad that folds out from the bag. The bag is so slim that you wouldn't think it would fit such a large changing pad, but it somehow does! The changing pad is even cushy and provides plenty of padding to make your baby comfy when you're changing her on the go.
*It's a great size to hold exactly what you need for quick outings. . . diapers, wipes, and a few little extras.
*The price is pretty amazing. . . $22.99!

Thinking ahead for when I'll be packing lunches for Kirsten in the fall. . . I was pretty pleased to find this Bento Box from My Square Meal.
I love this concept! My inner organizer (the one who does exist there despite what my house looks like) squeals at how tidy and cute the little compartments are. I can just envision myself packing healthy, well-rounded lunches by filling each compartment with something different. No squished, soggy sandwiches! No millions of Ziploc baggies! I love it!

The Bento Box has a hinged lid, and it's recyclable AND dishwasher-safe! It sells for only $9.99, and at that price it would be easy to have two or three or them so you don't have to wash it every single night. It comes with the spork too! Their website has a great page featuring some fun lunch ideas for these boxes. I'm feeling inspired.

Okay, if you are a mom of little girls, I'm guessing that dressing up and dancing takes up a portion of your day. I know it does at my house! My girls (and me!) absolutely LOVE the Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker DVD. It's the perfect way to introduce your little girls to a famous ballet, while keeping it interesting for them and helping them learn some ballet steps while they're at it!

Dancers from the Birmingham Royal Ballet perform excerpts from the Nutcracker, while kid-friendly narration tells the story so that young kids can understand. Then they take "breaks" and teach some dance steps. Kirsten is really enthralled with it. Sometimes she dances along and other times she just likes to sit and watch the dancers. You're not going to believe the price tag. . . $6.99 on Amazon! Amazing, huh? Go here and order one for every little girl you know!

The latest obsession for my kids involves a simple, glowing, portable nightlight. Seriously, they fight over it and I make them take turns carrying it around. The GloMate Jr from Mobi is just that cool. My kids are fascinated by the glowing colors, and you can choose to put it in color-changing mode or single-color mode. One thing that I really appreciate is the 15-minute timer mode, where the light will slowly fade to off so it doesn't zap your batteries too quickly. It's a cute, safe nightlight that kids can carry around and keep in bed with them and I think it would be helpful for children who are transitioning from crib to bed or moving to a new home. It comes with 3 AAA batteries, and it's a really great value too. . . $9.99!

Hope you found something you liked here! Don't kids get the greatest stuff???
