Children all around the world make wishes about what they want to dream about in “Shushybye land” and the Shushies make the dreams come true.  Its kind of a clever concept – telling kids they get to make wishes about what to dream about to get them excited about going to sleep.

The CD has the characters voices reading the story. My daughter loves to have this story read to her right before she goes to bed, and then feels real special if I leave the CD in and it plays the “Oh my my, Shushybye” song while she goes to sleep.  The cartoons are really cute which really is her favorite part of any book (she’s not quite 3 yet). I saw one Shushybye show on YouTube and I like the book a lot better; it seems more well done and has a better storyline.

I also reviewed a separate CD “Close Your Eyes” and my daughter liked it; another one to listen to as she goes to sleep. If you like the Shushybye’s, you’ll be interested to know the characters band is going on tour and you can view tour dates on Shushybye.com.

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended – please see winners here.

I have to say we loved these! We watched Ammon and Alma the Younger.  I thought my daughter wouldn’t be too excited about them -she’s almost 3 and in the extreme princess mode – but she was captivated by them.  In fact, she asks to watch them, and in the week we’ve had them has seen them several times.

If you don’t know what Living Scriptures are, they are animated stories from the Old and New Testament and the Book of Mormon.  They don’t just read the scriptures to you – instead they show the story as a cartoon with a plot.  They are extremely accurate and our whole family learned lessons from them. I recently reviewed “What’s In The Bible” and found Living Scriptures more enjoyable to watch.  My child is as excited to watch these as she is Dora!

On Living Scriptures site it says” About 90% of what comes on T.V. is violent and anti-gospel…only 2% is gospel oriented.”

The odds are stacked against our children; what a great idea to let them watch T.V., entertain them, and teach them at the same time.

We did a Family Home Evening where we used one of the bonus features, the quizzes, and we had lots of fun.  There were lots of other great bonus features, scriptures, FHE lessons & activities to go along with the video, etc.

Giveaway #1 (open to everyone): 1st winner will receive 2 DVD’s: “Ammon” and “Alma the Younger” and the 2nd winner will receive the DVD: “Alma the Younger”

My Parent Rewards here has a 30 day free trial of their program similar to the 2010 Entertainment Book where you get discounts at restaurants and local businesses! MPR combines all coupon books across the US & Canada into 1 membership. You get a card that you can swipe at most merchants for a discount, instead of having to carry a coupon around.

This is normally $20, but they are currently running a free trial for 30 days with no credit card required to try it out!

From Lehi to Spanish Fork, UT they had 293 offers.  My fav: B1G1 Free Golfing at Spanish Oaks.  Golfing is so expensive maybe me and my husband will go once this summer!

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Random.org picked #10, Ann “I am a fan on facebook.”

This Children’s DVD uses puppets to explain: the overall concept of the Bible, from who wrote it, why, how it all came together in one piece. Then it uses cartoons to explain: the individual stories in the bible.

I liked the cartoon parts of the DVD better then the puppets part. I think What’s In The Bible is more for children at least 5 years old. It moves too quickly and is too packed with information for any younger child.

There were 2 specific statements made that I disagreed with; you can email me if you want to know specifics.  I did think it did a good job of explaining about the creation when Moses wrote “Day” it could have meant God’s day, which could be thousands or millions of years in Earth days.  It also explained selfishness very well.

You can learn more at Whatsinthebible.com.

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED, Entry #12 won.

This is the secret to getting kids to love brushing their teeth! My nearly-3 year old daughter never liked to brush, but I would say “You get a Tooth Fairy treat if you brush!” and she’d start brushing away.

Chewable tablets?

According to Dr. Jeffrey Hillman, D.M.D., Ph.D. “The probiotics in EvoraKids™ effectively compete with certain harmful bacteria for both nutrients and space on tooth surfaces.  Daily application of the special blend of probiotics in EvoraKids will help support healthy teeth in children.” Read more about them or order some here on EvoraKids.com

EvoraKids = less cavaties! It has no sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Since it is so hard to know how well your kid is brushing their teeth, EvoraKids can give you piece of mind.

My daughter loves the taste of these chewy tablets.

Cuckoo Rating: 5 out of 5 (I had no problem giving this to my daughter and she liked it)

Giveaway: One Reader Will Win A 60 Ct. Box of EvoraKids!

UPDATE: This giveaway ended, entry #37 won.

I reviewed a copy of Danny the Dragon, written by Tina Turbin and Illustrated by Aija Jasuna, and an accompanying CD which reads the book out loud then plays 10 original composition classical songs.

Me and my daughter follow the cd along with the book before bedtime. My daughter likes to listen to the CD and turn the pages at the chime. Then when its over I tuck her in and turn the volume on low and she goes to sleep with the music going.  She thinks its really special.

The book is about a regular family who comes across Danny the Dragon and his sidekick Skipper.  I won’t spoil the surprise on how Danny meets Jimmy and his family,  but your children will love “where he sleeps” and learn from Danny as Danny is an easy-going, gracious dragon with great manners.  The illustrations are very colorful and my daughter loved them.

About the author: Tina Turbin is donating all proceeds from the Danny the Dragon CD to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University. She is a strong supporter of families, kids and education and runs the website Gluten Free Help which lists recipes that are gluten-free for people with celiac disease.

Update: Entry #2 won.

I have the most obnoxious, tangly, frizzy, curly hair and have never fell “in love” with any shampoo or conditioner.

I think I may really like like Wen!  I used it on my hair for a month. It worked great on my hair, noticiably making it softer.  It also seemed to straighten it a little, which seems weird.  I straightened my hair after using Wen and it only took 45 minutes; it usually takes me over an hour.  Yes, that is using my ceramic straightner and curling iron.

So what’s the big deal with Wen? Well, it’s a conditioner that you use with no shampoo before or after. Really.   From their site “Wen cleanses as it conditions, with no detergents or harsh chemicals. It’s all-natural…makes color lasts longer” and the results (at least on my hair) were much softer hair.

I think this product would work best on people who have thick hair like mine.

Cuckoo Level: 4.5 out of 5 (because its price is higher then what I normally pay for conditioner)

Giveaway:

A free full-size bottle of Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner is coming to the winner!
