Betty Lukens Flannelboard - Fun on Farm Review

I am very happy with the Betty Lukens Flannelboard. We happened to get Fun on Farm to review.

It was pretty fun to play with all the people and animals. 

We love that Betty Lukens contains the following:
  • Learning
  • Conversation
  • Fun
  • Doesn't require batteries
  • Is a quiet toy
Here is the board Mica started out with:

I really like that the barn was one of the pieces. From the package on the website it almost looked like it was part of the background. Mica new what to do. He even made up a story to his felt board creation. 

Betty Lukens Flannelboards are $16.95. The scene is 13"x15" with over 20 farm animals.

I think it's a great toy to play with. Mica needs a quite toy to play with after school. He gets so stimulated during school. The boy is tired when he gets home. They are also an excellent toy for homeschooling kids.

Like Betty Lukens on Facebook and Twitter to see future promotions, deals and learn more about their products.

Operation Shower

ShoeDazzle is supporting the non-profit organization called Operation Shower.

What is Operation Shower Anyway?

Like any non-profit organization, Operation Shower has a mission. They celebrate and honor military families. They provide cheerful baby showers for families in the military. This eases the hardship of deployment.

Operation Shower:
  • Hosts great baby showers
  • Delivers high-end products
  • Creates a shared experience
  • Partners with other organizations to provide services, such as health-related information
This certainly gives families hope and support that they wouldn't otherwise get.

ShoeDazzle has come to the rescue for Operation Shower.

All profits made from the sale of what they call the "Monroe" shoe will 100% benefit Operation Shower.  Vanessa Lachey is the designer for this celebrity shoe. She also had a Father in the military and is a soon to be Mommy. She certainly understands the mission of Operation Shower.

The "Monroe" shoes was inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s devotion of our troops, and her daring style. Vanessa Lachey had the military in mind when designing the shoes.

The "Monroe" Shoe Has:
  • They have faux snakeskin
  • They are high-heeled 
  • They contain a steep platform 
  • There are a lot of multiple buckles 
In short they are a mix of sexy and tough. f

Gets your pair on starting August 7th. All proceeds go to charity!

Toys That Focus on Building Coordination

One company that really focuses on building coordination for babies and toddlers is Haba.

They make toys that are out of wood. Our wooden toys hold up way more than our plastic ones have.

Lately I'm conscious of what kids can get out of their toys; learning wise. I have a nephew that has Trisomy 18, he'll be mentally challenged for the rest of his life. He's in constant physical therapy. The focus is trying to get him to play more and build his muscles. It's working.

Here are the toys that I really like:

What is your favorite toy or toy company?

My kids liked Fisher Price a lot. Now they are into Lego's. Both companies are full of plastic. Oh well.

Go Graham Go! is giving away the last Haba toy shown. It would be perfect for my nephew. Maybe not right away, but in the future. It's great to say he has a future. He's doing really well!
