Wee Squeak Shoes Review and Giveaway #SpringFashion




Spring has arrived & summer will be here before we know it, we are loving this wonderful sunny-spring weather & with lovely weather comes shorts, sandals & time outdoors! A year ago I introduced my little princess to Wee Squeak shoes, we both instantly fell in love & I couldn't wait to show her the new Wee Squeak sandals that arrived!

Wee Squeak has been around since 2005 & they offer a variety of colorful & fun shoes for boys & girls from 9 months old up to 5 years! These aren't just your traditional sandals, shoes & boots, these shoes Squeak! Every shoe is built with a removable squeaker, you will be able to hear your child's every step with a pair of Wee Squeaks on their feet!


I was sent a pair of Wee Squeak's Ruffle Sandal in hot pink, just one of their many new styles for spring! This bright sandal features soft ruffles as well as a soft, flexible sole, making these shoes perfect for new walkers or the experienced toddler! 


My daughter was so excited when she saw her new Wee Squeaks for the first time, she couldn't put them on fast enough. She walked, skipped & hopped around the house, happily listening to the "Squeak" of her new sandals!


These beautiful sandals will be perfect to wear to school, church, just about anywhere her little feet take her. Little Sister C loves how comfortable her new sandals are & they match almost every single one of her outfits-she has a lot of pink!

Amanda over at Open Hands, was given the opportunity to review a pair of City Grips and City Hooks. You can read the full review here and enter to win the great stroller accessory duo for yourself!

Sweetie Pie Organics Review





My children love to snack, it seems like every time we go run an errand or head to the park, they are asking for a quick snack either to take with us or to eat before we leave. I don't mind them snacking at all, but it's always great when they reach for a healthy snack & thanks to Sweetie Pie Organics, I have plenty to go around!

Sweetie Pie Organics has created healthy snacks for toddlers on the go! They use the finest quality organic produce grown here on Organic US farms! The fruits & veggies are freeze dried to preserve natural taste, packaged & then are ready for your little one to enjoy! 


You won't find any preservatives, artificial flavors, sugar or GMO's in Sweetie Pie Organics snacks, they are Gluten-Free & certified USDA Organic! I was sent the Just Real Fruits & Veggies Snack in three flavors for Little Sister C to try out!

Each snack box contains 5 individual bags inside, flavors included are:

Mango/Sweet Corn/Apple
Banana/Sweet Corn/Blueberry
Apple/Green Pea/Pineapple


I love the convenience of the snack bags, they are the perfect size to toss in my purse for a quick on the go snack for Little Sister C without the mess. The fruit & veggie pieces themselves are just right for my daughter's little fingers, she really enjoyed all of the flavors but she said her favorite was the Apple/Green Pea/Pineapple snack!

Sweetie Pie Organic snacks are great for her to enjoy at home, while we are waiting in line to pick up Big Brother C from school or just hanging out at the local park!


What flavor do you think your little one would be most excited to try? Feel free to stay connected with Sweetie Pie Organics on Facebook & Twitter!

Step2 Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set Review


“I am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion. No other compensation was provided.”


Step2 toys are pretty popular in our home, I remember when my son received his first Step2 toy almost 8 years ago, they are a great company that offers durable, fun & long-lasting toys, kids furniture & more for children! I was recently sent the Step2 Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set for my review, I couldn't wait for my children to try it out!

The Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set looked so exciting before we even got it out of the box, it does require adult assembly, but it didn't take long to put together. However, it does require four "AA" batteries (which aren't included) & we had to inflate the basketball, thankfully my Brother was able to air it up for us.


Once assembled, the Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set is ready to use, the height is super easy to adjust, going from 48 inches up to 72 inches! The rim is no like other, it lights up with rainbow lights & cheering sounds every-time a basket is made, along with a large backboard & a wide rim, your little one will have no problem shooting hoops & scoring!


The base of this set is set up for multiple uses, it features two molded-in cup holders, your little one can store their drink & the other one can be used to store the basketball during breaks! For sturdier play, you can weigh the base down with sand or water, but my children played just fine with out it toppling over!


My children had a blast shooting hoops, they loved seeing the goal light up & hearing the cheers while they played, I set it up on the lowest level for Little Sister C, she had to stand on her tippy toes but managed to score a few times!

I raised the Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set for Big Brother C, he loves playing basketball & within seconds was aiming for the backboard & scoring as well! We have this set up on are back porch, but it could also be used in our playroom in the winter if we wanted.


Fun, right? The Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set is great for individual play or group play, either way, this set will help your child be active, enjoy the outdoors & work on social & sharing skills! 

Be sure to check out Little Sister in action in the clip below!

Do you have a mini athlete in your home who would enjoy this set?

Buy it: The Step2 Light-It-Up Pro Basketball Set can be purchased exclusively at Toys "R" Us! You can stay connected with Step2 on Facebook & Twitter!
