Sid the Science Kid the Movie Review

Last week, I received a copy of Sid the Science Kid the Movie from NCircle Entertainment. As soon as I opened the package, my 2 year old daughter immediately held the DVD and wanted to watch it. I did play it and watched the movie with my 4 and 2 year old.

This is one of the movies we watched that they stay focused until the end of the movie.

The story is about Sid and Gabriella winning a contest to go to the newly built science museum. They met with 2 other kid scientists from China (Yangyang and Nunu) who also won the contest. They met the professor who built the museum. He showed them the solar system and introduced them to his robots. What sticked to my mind among the robots was the robot who changes dirty diapers of babies. LOL. Imagine if that was real!Then they met Bobby Bot who would tour them around the museum. They first went to the dinosaur world where Bobby Bot showed them the T-Rex and made it roar. They next went to the beehive where they saw super big bees the size of humans. They then went to a room that looks about playground and was taught about pulleys and probability. Then they went to a room that teaches about lightning. That's when the problem arises when Bobby Bot broke down and they tried to reprogram him. Bobby Bot became crazy and made the T-Rex dance, made the bees "moo" instead of buzzing and a lot more. Sid then came to the rescue by telling jokes so that they can reprogram Bobby Bot before the science museum opens to the public.

What I like about it is that it is very entertaining to my 2 and 4 year old. The movie taught about the basic solar system, dinosaurs (the T-REX) bees and the beehive, lightning, robots, pulleys, probability and Sid's jokes. :) What I like about it is that it is intended for children aged 4 and up. My 4 year old daughter understood the movie well. My 2 year old didn't understand it much but still she had fun watching it. It also taught sportsmanship because in every room, Bobby Bot asks a question and most of the time, the 2 older kid scientist (Yangyang and Nunu) answers the question correctly.

This is a great movie and would definitely be educational to children 4 and up. :)

Sweetheart VoxBox from Influenster Review

I am a member of Influenster and I received this Sweetheart VoxBox to review. I was excited to open the box so here is a video of me opening it.

The box contained the Olay cleansing system, Secret clinical strength Serence citrus scent, Not your mother's volumizing hair spray and Skinny girl Greek yogurt blueberry crisp flavor.

I tried the Olay cleansing system and I instantly liked the smell of the facial cleanser. The cleansing brush also feels great on my face. It felt like it was massaging my face. I also felt my face was cleaner after I used the cleansing brush and the cleanser.

This is the first time I've tried the Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response. I like the scent because it is kind of citrus. I also like that it gave me maximum protection when I was excercising.

I also received the Not Your Mother's She's a Teas Volumizing hairspray. I haven't tried it yet and I really don't use hairpsray often. But the smell is nice and I will use it the next time I need to.

The Skinnygirl bar was delicious and my 4 year old liked the taste. The sweetness is just right and I like that it is healthier ifever I want something sweet.

Review on MorningStar Farms Veggie Burgers (BzzAgent)

I was lucky enough to be on a BzzCampaign for Morningstar Farms. I was given a Free product coupon and money-saving coupons to hand out to friends and families. There are a lot of Veggie alternatives to choose from but I chose the MorningStar Grillers Prime Veggie Burgers to try with my family.

I'd like to keep it plain so I fried the veggie patties with a little bit of cooking oil and then served it hot with white rice and mayonnaise for dipping. You can try other Morningstar Farms recipes here

What I like about it is that it is a healthier alternative to meat burgers and the taste is okay. The texture is a bit different from meat burgers because it is too grinded. The taste is different from meat burgers. Personally, I would prefer the taste and texture of meat burgers but we can still get used to the taste of the veggie burgers knowing that it is healthier and a great alternative.

If you would  like to become a BzzAgent like me to get a chance to get free products to review, you can become one here BzzAgent.

Infant's Advil review for Smiley360

Being a mom of 2 girls, a 4 year old and a 23 month old, I have noticed that they have really different reactions when I try to give them medicine. I don't have a problem with my 4 year old when it comes to drinking medicine but it's a different story for my 23 month old. I have to run after her and force her to drink the medicine. She often gags and cries whenever I give her medicine. When she had a fever, I tried giving her the Infants' Advil White Grape Flavor (for 6 - 23 month old). She readily took it without any hesitation. I tried tasting a bit of it and what I noticed is that it's has a nice sweet taste. Even I like the taste. I was glad she liked the taste. The second thing I liked about it is that it is concentrated. It comes with it's own measuring syringe and since it's concentrated, she only needed a small amount. Third thing I like about it is that it is Dye-Free and Alcohol-Free. Fourth thing I like about it is that I only have to give it once every 6 to 8 hours for her fever. It kept her fever down longer.
