Recently, my kid received this box of Lego Friends City Park Café Lego. This is certainly a new and inventive twist for Lego. A City Park café made entirely out of Lego pieces? This set comes with 2 little Lego figurines, named Andrea and Marie and other Lego Friends Lego sets will have other characters from this line. My guess is that Lego is trying to capture a new audience with this Lego Friends set. So, today’s product review will test out this Lego Friends City Park Café set and find out if it’s any better, worse, or equally good as all the other Lego products we’ve tried out before.

Call me a snob, I’m not easy to please when it comes to anything breakfast related. Case in point, I won’t go near any cereal type of product if it has BHT on the ingredient list. If you want to know more about BHT, go ahead and give it a google. You might be surprised at what it can do to you. As a parent, I try to be a conscientious consumer while also giving my kid some ‘eat in moderation’ options so that she won’t go completely wild when she comes across a chip or a candy.

Today’s product review is for a new product line that I stumbled across at a local health food store. It’s called Love Grown Foods Simply Oats. I admit it, the pure look of these oat clusters peeking through the Love Grown Foods Simply Oats packaging lured me in for a product review. These little oat clusters just looked so darn yummy that I couldn’t resist. Even better, if I hadn’t heard of Love Grown Foods Simply Oats until today, then maybe you haven’t either so why not give them a test and see if they’re as good as they look?!

As parents, we’re always worrying about our children. That’s the job of the parent: to worry and fret and wonder and ponder and find the best solution we can come up with at any given time. Along the way, we nurture and support our kids to be independent thinkers with confidence and self-esteem, to rise to the challenges that life will throw at them. Most days though, for us parents, we need to find immediate solutions that impact our kids.

My kid has mild eczema and I don’t know about you, but the idea of resorting to hydrocortisone is not big on my list when her eczema flares up. So, I’m always looking for alternatives.

A while back, I came across Spectro kids E-Care Intense Moisturizing Cream that is designed to relieve itching and reduce redness from dry skin. Even better, this Spectro kids E-Care Intense Moisturizing Cream received the Seal of Acceptance from the Eczema Society of Canada so I’m hoping that this product will give me another option for those days when my kid needs it. Now, it’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now because it’s summer time and my kid hasn’t really had any eczema flare ups. Recently though, I did get the chance to test out the Spectro kids E-Care Intense Moisturizing Cream. See what happened.

Honestly, I just posted this the day before and already there’s another children’s product recall for yet another Halloween costume and for the same reason. Again, it has to do with the trim on the Haloween costume which does not meet Canadian law textile flammability requirements aka burns! This time it’s for a particular ladybug costume. So, please take a quick look and keep this info in mind when you go Halloween shopping. The recalled products may not be on store shelves anymore but if you take a look at why products are recalled, you can avoid some headaches by knowing what to avoid!

I am lamenting the near tail end of summer with one last (or second last) ice cream review of the season. While I’m sure this won’t be the last ice cream review we do here at ThingsThatWeDo.com, it certainly might be one of the last ones before the arrival of Fall. I decided to do an ice cream review on the Haagen Daz vanilla bean ice cream for a variety of reasons.

Many think Haagen Daz ice cream comes from an exotic faraway place. Ah, but do not let this fancy dancy name fool you. Any guesses on where Haagen Daz originates from?

My other reason for choosing to review the Haagen Daz vanilla bean ice cream is of course, its ingredient list. Made with cream, sugar, concentrated skim milk, liquid egg yolk, vanilla extract, and ground vanilla beans, this Haagen Daz vanilla bean ice cream is a far cry from some of the more processed and frozen disasters out there posing as ice cream. I’m not even going to foul this post by mentioning them. Needless to say, if you go exploring our Ice Cream review section, you’ll find some of the culprits there.

Today’s children’s product recalls comes to you all not because I think it’s important that yes, children’s clothing can be recalled too. Now, today’s product recall focuses on 2 children’s Halloween costumes. Although there weren’t that many of these costumes sold, it does highlight that we should be extra mindful of what we buy now that Halloween is only a couple of months away.

The first costume recall is for a leopard costume called “Alterego” Leopard Costumes”. The recall was put into effect because the trim on the costume does not meet Canadian law textile flammability requirements which could lead to some serious burns.

The other costume recalled is a “Feather Witch” Halloween Costume. This time, it’s the feathers that don’t meet flammability requirments.

Click below to see more details for both product recalls.

It’s been no secret that my kid loves all things Brave. Ever since watching the Brave movie back at the end of June 2012, my kid has talked incessantly about Merida, Elinor, Fergus, and the triplets. Wee Dingwall is hilarious, Young MacKintosh throws fits better than a toddler does, and above it all, I know my kid has memorized every single moment of the movie. She’s now gotten into impersonating the lot of them.

So, I think it’s time to move the learning forward. What else is kind of Brave related but also helps to diversify my kid’s play? AH HA! Then, I saw it. The Zing Air Z-Curve Bow! How totally cool to find a bow that my aspiring Merida can use!

Yep, I’m on the search for useful ideas on how we can teach our young children to be money smart and money wise. I recently realized the power of daily conversations when you include children and let them hear how you problem solve money matters.

So, here is money matters saving tip number 2: involve your child in conversations about money.

So, what do I mean by this? No, I don’t mean that you should sit your child down and lecture them about money and how they should or shouldn’t be spending money. I mean, no one likes to be addressed that way. You don’t and you’re an adult!
