Outside Play With American Plastic Toys

Golf Set American Plastic Toys

Summer is almost here. Time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Today it was in the 60's which is perfect to me. Not too cold, not too hot. American Plastic Toys make a lot of fun toy sets for kids of all ages.

The golf set is cute and you can carry all the pieces in the little cart. My husband put it together. He used scissors to cut the plastic pieces apart. They came attached to each other.

It is a nice set and I would suggest playing on a flat surface. You can use it indoors also.

T-Ball Set American Plastic Toys

The T-Ball Set was a good size for my 4 year old. If you have a bigger kid you could even play without the stand. It comes with 2 balls, a stand, and a bat. My kids had fun with this one.

American Plastic Toys has made products for over 50 years. The complete toy collection is made in the USA. Which is great to support local businesses. The best part is that the toys are affordable. I like when toys are under $20.00.

Memorial day weekend is coming up. Get some American Plastic Toys for your backyard.

First Korean American Girl Doll Review

Z Yang Korean American Girl Doll

Meet Z Yang, the first Korean American Girl Doll. American Girl dolls are adorable and now more diverse than ever. Z stands 18" tall. She is sturdy and has long dark brown hair. The clothes she is wearing are super cute. Check out those sparkly shoes. I love how the dolls come with a story book. Z is a film maker. Her shirt even has a camera on it.

This is my daughter's first American Girl Doll. She was very happy with her. I think she will be wanting more dolls in the future. I think the quality of the doll is good. I do feel the doll looks half Asian which is perfect for my daughter, who is half Korean. 

Back in the 80's there was not a lot of diversity for dolls. My parents never found a Korean doll. I am so glad American Girl made Z.

I think it is important for all girls and boys to be represented. And it is important for Big name brands to take action. We are all different and unique.

You can also buy accessories and a pet dog plush for your Z Yang doll. Whether you are a doll collector or an Asian American family, I think Z Yang is the perfect addition to your collection.

Cirra By ShedRain At Target

Cirra By ShedRain

Cirra by ShedRain is available at Target this Spring and Summer. ShedRain is family owned and offers quality umbrellas for the whole family. This compact umbrella has an air vent canopy and it automatically opens and closes with a push of a button. It comes in a nice compact travel size. It's great size and my son can easily hold it when we walk home from school.

The last week or so has been one rainy day after another here on Long Island. I walk my daughter to pre-k and also pick my 2 kids up at school in the afternoon. This umbrella comes in handy and is very easy to use. Especially since I am carrying my 7 month old while I walk. I don't want her to get soaked. 

I have used ShedRain umbrellas before and like the quality. They are very reliable.

They also come in different styles and colors. They also have cute umbrellas for the kids. Check it out on the Target website.

Whatever the occasion there is a fashionable umbrella to go along with your wardrobe.

You can also find more info about ShedRain here on their website.

Barefoot and Loving It On YouTube

We love YouTube! My kids enjoy watching certain YouTubers play games online. My daughter also really likes to watch people opening up surprise eggs and blind bags. She tells me she wants to be a YouTuber someday.

I started a YouTube channel to go along with this blog. I have recorded some apps that we play on the phone and also some videos of the kids playing.

Do you have a favorite YouTube channel?

This Earth Day #CareAboutYourAir With Fresh Wave

This Earth Day sign the #CareAboutYourAir pledge with Fresh Wave. Do you know what ingredients are inside air fresheners? Many chemicals that can be toxic to you and your family. And don't forget about the environment. We want to use non toxic products that are better for our families and the earth.

3 Steps to follow:

Learn: Read the labels. Ingredients in air care products, household cleaning supplies and laundry products impact your family and the environment.
Act: Swap harsh chemical products for those made with natural ingredients, even if it's only one product - like your air care solution.
Share: Encourage others to take the #CareAboutYourAir pledge

Take the pledge here on the Fresh Wave website.

We like using the Fresh Wave odor removing spray because it has no chemicals and the scent is easy on the nose. I'm not a big fan of fragrances. I like floral or natural.

Do you have any plans or projects for Earth Day?
