Dino Dan "Dino Party" DVD Review

As a member of the NSider, I was given another opportunity to review the Dino Dan Dino Party DVD. My daughters were excited to watch it specially my 4 year old who loves dinosaurs.

Here is a picture of them watching the Dino Dan Dino Party. They watched it 2x and were very attentive while they watched it. My 4 year old daughter liked the second episode the best. She loved the Stegosaurus and how the spikes changes color depending on the emotions of the Stegosaurus.

I like Dino Dan personally as a mom because the show keeps my daughters entertained and at the same time, they learn about dinosaurs in a very subtle and simple way that they'll remember the name of the dinosaurs. My 2 year old also liked the show and watched it together with my 4 year old.

Here is a brief description of the DVD:

Join Dan as he tries to save his mom's garden from a sneaky Compognathus by dino-trapping it!  However, his plan goes wrong when he ends up trapping a baby T-rex instead.  Will Dan ever capture the Compsognathus before it destroys his mom's garden?  Then it's time to celebrate Dan's birthday!  Join in on the party and a dino scavenger hunt with Dan and all his friends! Dan, a paleontologist-in-training, uses the scientific method to gather clues and solve mysteries.  Dino Party is filled with five action-packed adventures full of discovery!

Seventh Generation products review

I always love it when I discover new products my family would love. I've been given the chance to try 6 different products from Seventh Generation.

First is the Seventh Generation Baby Shampoo and Wash. I used this on my 2 year old daughter and I love the light citrus scent. It is made with extra virgin olive oil and is gentle, natural and hypoallergenic. My daughter like the smell too and left her hair smelling fresh and citrusy after bath.

The next product I tried is the Seventh Generation Baby lotion. Like the Baby shampoo and wash, it also has a light citrus scent. I like that it didn't leave any greasy feeling on the skin like other lotions does. It left my daughter's skin soft and lightly scented. It is also made with olive oil and is gentle and hypoallergenic.

I also got a sample of their Seventh Generation baby Natural 4x detergent. It has a light lemon-y smell and it is hypoallergenic and gluten free. I tried it on my daughter's white clothes and I like that it cleans well.

Next sample is the Seventh Generation Mandarin Nourishing Body wash. Of course I was excited to try it on me. I like the light citrus scent and I like that my skin felt soft after using it.

I also tried their Seventh Generation Lavender moisturizing lotion. I like the calming and relaxing lavender scent of the lotion. I like that this lotion is non-greasy.

Last but not the least, I got to try the Seventh Generation Mandarin Refreshing Facial Clothes. The facial cloth is super soft! I like that it cooled down my face specially with the warmer weather the past days. It made my face looking fresh and hydrated. I definitely recommend this and love the light citrus scent too.

Overall, I love the products I tested and would definitely buy more. :) You can also find more Seventh Generation products here. For more savings, you can get a 20% off code for Seventh Generation products here.
