Mini Penguin Massager from Santamedical Review


I don't like going for a massage because I am ticklish so I just take Advil if my muscles are still sore after a couple of days. I also use a topical analgesic for the first day to see if it would alleviate the muscle pain. After trying out the mini penguin massager from Santamedical, I was glad to have found an alternative way to alleviate muscle soreness and pain.
 It is sleek, compact and lightweight. It measures around 6 inches and weighs 3.9 oz. It operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and has 2 speed options. It is easy to use and operate with a push of a button that goes low speed, then high speed then Off. It has a red light indicator when turned on. It is well designed and very portable. It can be used on the head, face, neck, shoulders or even my back and thighs after a workout. It is effective in relieving muscle stress and tension.
The smooth and steady pulse gives a soothing and calming massage on the area which is sore. I love that I can take this with me anywhere, even at work and I can use it in between breaks. I like how this soothes sore muscles and effectively shortens the pain associated with overworked muscles.

Slim Memory Foam Pillow By Delta Comfort Labs Review


A pillow is an important factor for a good night sleep. I am quite choosy with my pillow specially the one on my head. I don't like it too soft because I feel like my head is floating and I don't like it firm either.
For me, when I tried a memory foam pillow before, it was perfect. Why? The memory foam pillow has the right amount of softness and it conforms to the shape of my head. It reduces the risk of waking up with a stiff neck.
 This slim memory foam is not the usual standard pillow because it is only 3 inches thick. I gave it to my husband to try as he prefers to sleep without any pillow because he said that pillows usually gives him a stiff neck. He has been sleeping on this for 2 weeks now and he says that it's comfortable and loves the slim design. It bounces right back to its original shape and haven't formed any lumps yet.

MAGCAP Wall Mounted Bottle Opener With Magnetic Catching Bottle Cap Review


When we open bottles with bottle caps, the bottle caps would often fall somewhere and we would have to pick it up. Yes, it's sometimes a hassle so I looked forward to try the MAGCAP wall mounted bottle opener. Before I head on over to my review, here is a quick product description from the company:

This classic looking wall mounted bottle opener is equipped with hidden magnets that allow it to catch a bottle cap as it falls. It works as a normal traditional bottle opener with the extra magnetic feature. The bottle opener has a matted nickel finish and comes with two screws for mounting.
The MAGCAP Wall Mounted Bottle opener with magnetic catching bottle cap has a nice, matted nickel finish. I like that it can be mounted on a wall because it provides more stability and anchorage. It is easy to mount and the screws needed are already included.

This is easy to use and works like a normal bottle opener. Sometimes, I noticed that the bottle cap wouldn't stay on the magnetic part and falls down but most of the time, it works. This is effective and works like it should.

Comfy Commuter Travel Pillow Review


When I ride on the passenger seat of our car, I would always get car sickness after a while. Even when I was younger, I would need to close my eyes or sleep or I'll get car sickness. When I received the Comfy Commuter Travel Pillow, I looked forward to trying it. Before I head on over to my review, here is a quick product description from the company:

This travel neck pillow is unlike any other with a revolutionary new design that provides cushy support to the head and neck. The pillow is perfect for travel and home - such as watching television, resting, meditating or reading. The flat-back head support allows the user's head to rest most comfortably and does not force the user's head into a forward leaning postion. The pillow compresses beautifully into its own attached bag so you can have comfort and convenience! The pillow retails for $39.99 on Amazon. Features include:
  • Super plush polyester fill; exterior polyester & cotton
    Superior design that cradle head and neck in plush support
    Chin strap for additional neck support and snug fit (optional use)
    Compresses into attached bag for easy travel
    Ultra-light & washable
    Perfect gift for traveler
    Made in USA!
    Positive review from Wall Street Journal article "Desperately Seeking Slumber" 
First of all, I like the color of this pillow. It has a baby pink/black color combination which is really pretty. I like how handy and ultralight this neck pillow is because it's easy to bring on the go. I usually have to keep my neck straight when I'm the passenger because I get car sick easily. Using the Comfy Commuter during long drives provided me with great head and neck support.
The neck pillow is very soft and smooth and comfortable to wear. It has an attached chin velcro strap to keep it in place. It also has a built in sack to squeeze the pillow in for easy carrying and storage. The pillow does not deform and just bounces back to its original shape and form.

I like how this also keeps my head from getting a stiff neck when I fell asleep during our long drive. It supported my neck properly and kept it from dropping down to one side when I fell asleep. Even my 7 year old daughter loves it. I am so excited and would definitely bring this on our 13 hour flight soon.

Click N' Play Baking Set And Accessories For Dolls Review


My daughters love to play pretend cooking and they have different cooking toys at home. Sometimes, they would pretend that their doll is the one cooking and serving food so when I received the  Click N' Play Baking Set and Accessories, I was excited to show it to them. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short product description from the company:

A great pretend play for your kids set comes with a variety of baking utensils and bakers clothing for dolls. This cute activity toy is a great way to encourage creative play and motor skill development. Compatible for 18 inch dolls like the American girl. Full piece baking set sized to fit your 18 inch doll
Set includes; mixer, mixing bowl, recipes, spoon, spatula, measuring spoons, measuring Cup
Apron, chef hat, mittens, 2 cups, 2 plates, canister for baking ingredients
Cupcake tray and bite size cupcakes, cookie tray and bite size cookies
Great pretend play to keep your kids busy for hours. Packaged in a color box and makes an amazing gift. Carton size measures approximately 15 x 14 x 15 inches 

 This is a nice and cute pretend baking set for my 4 and 7 year old daughters. The colorful set consist of different miniature version of what I use in the kitchen for baking like a mixer, mixing bowl, recipes, spoon, spatula, measuring spoons and cup, canisters for the ingredients, an apron, a chef hat, mittens, pastel colored donuts, cupcakes and also a tray and a cake plate.
  My girls love to extend their help specially when I am baking cupcakes or brownies. They love to help combine and mix the ingredients. So this click n' play baking set is just perfect for them to practice their skills.
 The included accessories were small but super cute. There is a printed recipe which I think is cute too.
The smaller accessories are the perfect size for their 18 inch doll.
I also love how cute and dainty the donuts and cupcakes included in this set. They are made of light plastic and I wish they included a small bag for the accessories to keep them together. Because of their slightly smaller size, they are prone to getting lost in the long run.

This is a great alternative to keep them busy instead of always being on the tablet or computer. These enhances social skills, creativity and imagination. It is also nice to see both my girls to get along and play together.

Click N' Play Doll Salon Chair And Accessories Review


The Click N' Play Doll Salon Chair with accessories is a well made, durable toy. For its price, this is a great gift for young girls. My 2 daughters, who are 4 and 7, were so excited when they saw this. It came with the salon chair ( I had to assemble it but was easy since I just attached the base to the seat and put the screw underneath), 1 plastic blow dryer, 2 curlers, a plastic comb, 2 clips and a pretend flat iron. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short product description from the company:

Style your dolls hair with this salon doll chair. Adjust the seats height and foot rest. Set comes with make-believe hair accessories. Salon arm chair with upholstered seat and back
Accessories include; hair brush, hair clips, hair curler, hair dryer and nail clipper
Adjustable height, foot rest flips up and down
Perfect to fit 18 inch dolls of all styles
Chair measures approximately 15 1/2 inches high and ----- inches wide

The salon chair has a plush seat which made this look really cute. It also has a belt with a velcro snap on so that the doll stays in place. The accessories were small so I wouldn't recommend this to toddlers.
 The chair also has an attached belt with a velcro to keep the doll seated and in place.


The chair also has a moveable foot rest which flips up and down. I also had to install the foot rest by putting a screw on the foot rest holder, but still easy to do.
 The small accessories were super cute and although a bit small, it's perfect for their 18 inch doll. I just wish the accessories have a little bag included so that my daughters can easily store them and wouldn't accidentally get lost over time.
The salon chair moves up 3 times, by pressing the pink butterfly and moves down by pulling the silver lever up. Pushing it is a bit hard, so my 4 year old daughter always asks me for help, and needs to be supported at the base (or it kind of topples over) but otherwise, I love the mechanism of the chair going up and down like a real salon chair.

Overall, this is a cute toy and perfect for those who love to play pretend, like my daughters.
