Sweet Suite 2019 Toy Event

Sweet Suite 2019 was a really fun event for bloggers, influencers, and YouTube stars to see all the new toys coming out soon. Many toy brands were there. They served some amazing food too.
I am going to share some of the toys that my family would enjoy.

Playmobil has a lot of cool toy sets. I really liked this space one. The amount of detail that goes into these toys are amazing. Playmobil has always made me think high quality toy.

Do your kids like Peppa Pig? My youngest really likes watching Peppa. The toys are pretty cute and it looks as if they will have some good blind bags coming.

Tamagotchi really brings me back to when I was a kid. It is interesting that all the retro toys eventually make a come back. Did you play these when you were a kid?

My almost 3 year old loves watching Cry Babies on YouTube. She loves baby toys in general. These dolls cry.

It is always so much fun to go to this event. A week later you get a really sweet swag box full of toys.
Stay tuned because we will be reviewing new toys.

Frozen The Musical


My mom and I took my daughter to see Frozen The Musical for a late birthday present. It was also the first train ride for Nia. It went pretty well. Nia was in NYC before but we took a car last time.

This was her first Broadway play. She really enjoyed it. I was nervous because she usually can't sit still for too long. It was over 2 hrs long and a brief intermission. 

St. James theater

St James theater is located at 44th st which is theater district. There are a lot of great plays in the area.  
When I was a teenager I had gone to a bunch of broadway plays. I have always enjoyed all of them.
When Frozen first came out I thought I was lucky not to hear my kids sing Let it Go a hundred times. Eventually they did get into the movie. I did not bring my 2 yr old because the theater suggests the play be for 8 and over. Nia just turned 7 and I think it worked well.

Frozen Musical

Grandma bought her an Ana plushie doll. Which was cute and soft but certainly pricey.

They also had pretty dolls for around 60 dollars or so.

Elsa and Anna

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. There are plenty of restaurants in the area if you need to get a bite to eat. We stopped into a brick oven pizza shop and there wasn't a wait.

The music was great and I think it translated nicely to the theater. There were added songs that weren't in the movie but those were good too.

Have you seen a Broadway Play recently? What was your favorite?

My Favorite Places for Yarn and Craft Supplies

Lion Brand Yarn

One of my favorite go to yarn brands is Lion Brand yarn. I really like all of the different types I have tried over the years. I started to crochet during high school. Back then I was obsessed with making scarves. I like making my kids blankets and trying new patterns. Always learning new things along the way. 

I have bought Lion Brand Yarn from their website and also from my local Michaels. 

Honey Silks and Co. is my favorite place to buy velvet ribbon. I seriously adore all things velvet.
I have bought and used her velvet ribbon and recycled chiffon. Both are awesome.

A lot of florists use her ribbon for wedding bouquets. There are so many uses. I like to use the ribbon for wall decor. You can add it to any weaving for new texture as well.

Ganxxet is a great shop for fabric yarn and macrame rope. The fabric yarn comes in a variety of fun prints and solid colors. You can use it to make coasters, baskets, and so much more.
The macrame rope is nice too. So far I have tried the soft rope and I really liked it. I used it to make keychains.

I could write about yarn and craft supplies all day. Do you have a favorite craft or hobby?

Crochet and macrame are my two favorite things to do lately.
