REVIEW: Kidizoom Smartwatch from @VTech – The Latest in Wearable Technology for Kids

IMG_0300

At four and a half years of age, my son is just beginning to learn how to tell time. He loves looking at clocks and letting us know what the time is wherever we go. When I was offered to check out the new Kidizoom Smartwatch by VTech, I thought ‘what a great way to help him learn how to tell time all on his own’. I didn’t realize just how much more the VTech Smartwatch would actually be. A wonderful wearable gadget of sorts, the Kidizoom Smartwatch not only tells children the time, but it can also take pictures, […]

Speed Check #LifeOnFiOS

photo 3

When we first got FiOS, many many years ago, wireless connections was still relatively new.  It never crossed your mind to think that you had a limit on how many devices can share your access or that the amount might effect the quality of your access.  Over the years the amount of devices that my family connects to our wireless router has grown leaps and bounds.  From 1-2 computers directly connected to the router to now having our cellphones, tablets, desktops and even gaming devices connected wirelessly.  We never had a problem or complaint about our FiOS internet until recently. […]

The Ultimate #GameChanger from @Britax

Britax Convertible

Why is it that we often feel like we need an Ivy League degree in engineering to figure out buying and installing car seats for our kids? It seems as though we never really know if the seat is secure enough, or whether or not the seat is installed properly. We can never easily figure out where the seat belts go, or if the LATCH system is providing the proper amount of security. Most importantly, many first time parents don’t even know if they even have a LATCH system and/or does the car accommodate this? There are so many choices […]

RUN DIARY: Training Right #VZWBuzz

runninggear

One of my goals has always been to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Not only is it a HALF MARATHON but it’s one where I get to dress up and wear a crown! I mean seriously, how fun is that!?! While it was always one of my goals, I feel like I am finally working on it. Ever since my participation in the #MiracleMarathon I have been on a roll! I started out with running 1 mile a day for 27 days and it was pretty awesome! Towards the end I even started throwing in 2 mile days here […]

Mixing Things Up with the HTC One Remix #VZWBuzz

remix

When I found out I was getting the HTC One Remix, no one was more excited than my husband. He was super excited for me having been an HTC Droid DNA user. His words, “It’s like my DNA, but the newer, better one… and my DNA is awesome! It’s just your size!”  He loved his Droid DNA.  When he got pick-pocketed in Coney Island, he went right out and bought the same phone again despite there being newer phones out on the market. I definitely loved the smaller size. While having a larger screen definitely had its perks. I was […]

Slowing down the Electronic Noise

tv2

This year I am making a conscious effort to cut down the electronic noise in my house.  What is electronic noise? All those devices you can’t seem to live without – cellphone, iPad, Kindle, DS, Wii, Xbox, computer.  I know, SHOCKING for this social media mom who is never far from her phone and computer, who is always on Facebook, instagram and twitter. Why you ask?  I started noticing my children were very hyper.  If there weren’t hyper, it was a problem… for them.  They needed constant stimulation.  They craved it.  Always wanting the TV turned on, wondering if the iPad […]

Solving the Mystery around Fire Safety

PART_1413217152388_IMG_2019

Just in time for Fire Safety Week, the National Fire Protection Association launches another amazing interactive app made just for kids called, The Case of the Missing Fire Alarms. Kids all around the country are learning about fire safety in school, and hopefully at home as well, but we all know repetition is a powerful learning tool. While we hope never to encounter a fire in our lifetime, safety is key.  This app reinforces the importance of fire safety in a fun way.  Not only is this an educational app, teaching our children about fire safety, specifically the importance of fire […]
