YoFun Mermaid Night Light

We recently received the YoFun Mermaid Night Light for my oldest daughter’s birthday. Both kids are in a major mermaid phase, partially brought on by a cartoon they love called H2O. They are also really into “DIY” (as they call it) and various crafts, so this build-your-own-mermaid kit was a perfect gift. The quality of this kit is excellent! The style and general look of the mermaid, shells, and tree are great; quite vibrant and fun. It was fairly easy to put together with the use of the glue that…

Maileg Mouse in a Box

Not long ago, my sister bought one of my kids a Maileg Matchbox Mouse. This was a surprisingly big hit at that year’s Christmas. Due to limited stock, we’ve had to substitute a similar item at times for the kids (Foothill Toys Matchbox Mouse). Both the Maileg and Foothill versions basically consist of a little toy mouse with a matchbook bed; they come with a pillow, blanket, and a mattress. The Maileg mice are a bit smaller and look slightly different, but otherwise, they are fairly similar at a basic…

Lumipets Animal Night Light

We’ve been using our two Lumipets as kid night lights for over a year now with pretty good results. One of the kids is very attached to hers and uses it every night, the other doesn’t care too much about it. They’re basically soft, cute animal night lights with a nice array of light and color settings accessible via remote or by lightly tapping it. Both of our little ones went with the bunny version, but it also comes in a cat, owl, bear, dragon, and unicorn. The one that…

Sky Bounce Ball 3 Pack

During the pandemic, as my family and I have spent a lot more time at home, the kids and I have been playing outside quite a bit. I figured we could use some small balls to throw around, so I started my search. I came across a pretty inexpensive three pack of balls sold by a company called Sky Bounce. I wasn’t completely sure what to expect with these, but it turns out they were exactly what I envisioned. They are familiar-feeling handballs; smaller than a tennis ball, about two…

Matchbox Mouse by Foothill Toys

For Christmas one year, my sister got my youngest kid a Maileg Matchbox Mouse. This was a surprisingly big hit that year. My oldest wanted one to, so we tried to find them online, but every retailer was either out of stock or the mice were like $50. After some research, I found Foothill Toy Company’s version of the Matchbook Mouse. We checked it out online together and she liked the looks of it, so we grabbed one for less than $15. Eventually, the little one lost her Maileg Mouse,…
