Learning Resources MeCorder, Mini Video Recorder Giveaway!

If your kids are anything like mine, they LOVE recording themselves! One of their favorite activities is to watch the videos I take of them on my phone. Since I don’t really love the idea of letting them play with my phone, I was so excited to learn about the MeCorder from Learning Resources. This cute little video recorder is only 2.25″ square. The perfect size for little hands and little pockets. There are only 3 buttons: Power, Record and Playback. It was easy enough for my 3 year old to figure out. This adorable little recorder is sturdy and can withstand some rough and tumble play (within reason). My son has used his MeCorder to video a recent hike and to record his “news shows” in which he love to play anchor (don’t ask me where he picked that up, I don’t even watch the news!). Look at all the great features the MeCorder Offers:

    • Lets students see themselves as they record!
    • Simple, compact video recorder for speaking and listening practice and collaboration in beginning tech projects
    • Document and assess their learning, then upload and share
    • Features 30-second recording, playback, LCD screen, mic, USB, and magnetic back
    • Measures 2.25″ x 2.25″
    • Grades 2+


    • Self-Help
    • Social & Behavioral
    • Cognitive: Receptive Language
    • Cognitive: Expressive Language Key Points
    • Children can see themselves as they record – great for enhancing articulation practice
    • Use for self awareness/self assessment/biofeedback in the areas of grammar and speech articulation/phonology. The ability to replay and repeat is key for children, along with seeing how their mouth is formed to produce the sounds
    • Recordings can be uploaded to collect goal progression data
    • Aids auditory memory deficits by recording directions for a child to replay when necessary.
    • Can be used to reassure a child who is apprehensive experiencing novel situations. Mom and Dad can record reassuring messages that the child can play back, for instance on a school bus.
    • Also great for sending messages and progress back and forth between parents and teachers.

This is a really great product for back to school. It can be used as a great way to communicate with your child and their teachers during day, as well as a way for your child to learn. I am anxious to use this product on my 3 year old who suffers from some speech delays. I think this will be a really great way for him to visualize how to make sounds and observe his own speech. The MeCorder is a really fun and educational product. My kids love it and I love how easy it is to record and upload videos to my computer. The MeCorder Mini Video Recorder retails for $59.99 and can be purchased at the Learning Resources website here. One of our Lucky readers will win their own MeCorder!!!!!

My Race Ragz Review and Giveaway

Its fall- I have been trying to get back into running again (and by running, I have to clarify that what I do can really be classified as a “perky walk” but that’ what I do…and I figured, my feet are moving, one after the other, and so is my body, and someone has to come in last. So yay! for me!!) and I have plans for some more 5K races this fall (the LEGOFamily 5k Road Race & Children’s Fun Run, Jamie’s Run, and the Manchester Road Race). What will I wear for these races? My awesome moisture-wicking DRY FIT shirt from My Race Ragz.  You can buy a plain top, select from over 700 predesigned tops, or design your own.  I was very, very torn between a shirt with my logo on it or one that says “I hate running.”

As you can see, I went for the custom design.

my race ragz custom shirt

My Race Ragz are made in the USA, which makes me happy. I like keeping it local.  The tops  are made from moisture wicking fabric designed to help you stay cool, comfortable and stylish when running. They want everyone comfortable when running, no matter what the skill level.  Even a snail paced “runner” like me can look good and feel comfortable when out there, right?  I know for me, if I’m not comfortable in what I am wearing, I’m not going to be out doing much of anything for long.   Can you tell the folks who came up with My Race Ragz are runners themselves?  What a cool venture for avid runners- a business designed to support and encourage others to do what they love!  My Race Ragz isn’t just about themselves and their cool shirt- they donate 1% of their net proceeds to various charitable organizations.  A USA company who keeps production in the USA and gives back.

Photo taken by a 5 year old…but this is the back of my shirt. I love it.

I’m kind of thinking about getting another shirt that says “I’m blogging this” but I kind of want a pink top and I don’t see that option…yet. (hint, hint, please and thank you)

My Race Ragz are * 100% microfiber mesh * Inherent moisture wicking to keep you dry and comfortable * Treated to inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria * Extremely Breathable * No shrinkage, easy care.  (Plus, they are just cool to wear.)

One lucky reader will win a My Race Ragz top of their own!

Tea Collection for Back to School (Giveaway)

tea collection fall 2012

Little sister is looking sharp in her Adorable Dots TShirt Dress with leggings, and big sister loves the fun blue stripes in her Rohkea Stripe Playdress. They look gorgeous, feel comfortable, and can play all day with these outfits.

There are brands my kids love to wear- and the reasons they love to wear them are the same as mine- they are comfortable, they can play in them, and they are fun to wear.  Tea Collection has once again brought a gorgeous line of clothes to the “table” for Fall 2012- gorgeous patterns, colors, soft fabrics, classic cuts, clean lines, and more.  The kids are happy in Tea Collection- they are always comfortable, they are “different” than what everyone is wearing at school, and most importantly,  they can mix and match their Tea Collection items.

boys fall 2012 tea collection hoodie

Not really thrilled about posing, but tolerating. He really loves this outfit- comfy pants, with pockets for acorns, cars, Lego figures, and whatever else he can fit in there…and the hoodie has bright colors and looks “cool” so he’s happy. He’s just not wanting his photo taken by anyone, anywhere right now!

My son’s been so excited about his new outfit.  The terry pants are super comfortable, as is the shirt (the Tea Collection t shirts we have are always the ones he reaches for first, they just feel so cool, so soft to wear).  The Peli Stripe Hoodie is full of fun, bright colors, but definitely cool enough for my big kindergarten kid!  The boys’ items are available in size S (6-12 months) to 12 years.

boys fall 2012 tea collection

Can’t stand another minute of modeling. Poor kid. I let him off the hook after this. He’s wearing the Fire Brigade Shirt and French Terry Cargo Pants. Comfy enough for the playground, nice enough for church.

Big and Little Sister are both always happy to make fashion shows, and they are ecstatic about the new dress and legging sets from Tea Collection.

tea collection girls fall dress

Now that she’s 7, she’s suddenly wanting blue, blue and more blue, and nothing pink. She’s so happy with the Life in the Trees Dress (sizes from xs/3 to6 mo-12y)

The girls’ line from Tea Collection comes from size xs (3-6 months) to 12 years.  They are sized quite generously, and I’d be very surprised to hear a little girl didn’t get at least 2 sizes of wear from her dresses and leggings.  These clothes hold their shape and don’t shrink.  They don’t fade in the wash. They are made to last, and last they will.  We’ve shared some with a friend, who’s daughter has now outgrown them, and they are back in our house looking good as new! The broad range of sizing means that you can find stuff for many years to match or coordinate the kids  if they are up for that as much as mine are!

While the Tea Collection line is definitely not bargain-priced, you can find great deals, and buying combinations will help you to get the most bang for your buck.  The Birds & Stripes 5 piece set comes with the three dresses you can see on my older daughter as pictured above, plus striped leggings and a pair of solid leggings.  Lots of fun mix and match! That’s 3 full outfits for $128.  I’m ok with spending that when I know without hesitation that my younger daughter will be able to wear these outfits when she’s in that size.

The girls adore their Mikko Floral Bubble Dresses, and so do I.


Tea Collection started with the vision to bring modern design and worldwide culture to children’s fashion. They’ve held true to that vision over the past 10 years, and take it a step further with their endeavors to support The Global Fund for Children.

We donate all proceeds from our Little Citizens line of clothing to GFC. We also sell a variety of GFC’s children’s books on our site, including “To Be an Artist.” A few times a year, we give back 20% of all online sales during our GFC Days. We also helped fund their 2010 International Center of Photography fellowship. Learn more about the photography fellows and their wonderful work. We continue to look for new ways to support the Global Fund for Children. Coming soon, we’ll be launching a new website feature where you can add a small donation to GFC with any order.

Something I just learned about Tea Collection is that they’ve taken a twist on school fundraisers.  I’m all for fundraising to support our schools, but to be honest, many folks would rather buy something like clothing their children will need anyway and have a percentage of the sales go back to the school.  I’d love to support our schools this way!

You can help your school just by shopping for your favorite globally-inspired kids clothes from Tea. We created Tea’s School Days Program to expand our charitable efforts and give back to schools in a bigger way.

How does it work? We’ll provide your school community with a specialized promo code that will donate 15% of the order total back to your school. With the code, you’ll also get free ground saver shipping on any order for 48 hours.

How does it add up? We’ll donate 15% of every single order placed using the code goes back to your school (pretty cool). For example, if 10 people from your community place an order of $100, Tea will write your school a check for $150. The more people shop, the more we donate. And there’s no limit. It’s that simple. Ready to sign up? Download the application below.

Requests to be part of Fall School Days must be submitted by 10/8/2012 at 11:59 pm PT. Please understand that we receive many requests and may not be able to respond to each individually. We will only respond to organizations that fit within our charitable giving requirements. Please, no phone calls.

The 2012 Fall School Days will be held on October 10 & 11.


One reader will win a $100 Tea Collection Gift Card!

Back to School with The Children’s Place (Giveaway)

It’s here.  BACK TO SCHOOL!  Some celebrate, others are sad, but no matter which way you feel, you’re probably going to need to do some back to school shopping.  It’s one of my favorite things to do, shopping is.  I mean, back to school shopping.  (Or let’s be really honest, I love shopping.  I said it).  I used to shop for me, and now that I have kids, I shop for them.  I like to find clothes that are well fitting, built to last, and comfortable for the kids.  I’m a big fan of matching thing, or coordinating, so they can mix and match.  The kids have so far been fairly agreeable to my suggestions. The Children’s Place is always one of the first stops on the list.
This year, I’ve tried something new.  I let the kids just choose.  I didn’t guide them, or only show them things I liked. I let them choose.  This was a big step for me and I wasn’t sure what the results would be.  I assumed someone would be crying in the corner (me) that no one wanted matchy stuff.

My little guy loves the athletic pants, and would wear his beloved ‘noisy pants’ every day, if he was allowed.  Paired with a bright orange long sleeved tshirt, I think the outfit kind of works for him, don’t you?  Please excuse his expression, there’s not much he hates less than having to model clothes for pictures.  I love this outfit because he looks great, and he’ll be comfortable in it- so no fidgeting (at least from clothes) during school!

childrens place fall fashions 2012 boys

As you can see, my littlest one is all ready for preschool in her cute little top and skirt.  The ruffly purse applique on the top looks just darling with the ruffled skirt, and she’s as happy as can be that it’s all in shades of her beloved purple.

Big sister is starting to look like a “big kid” and not a little girl anymore, and is all about shiny things and apparently, any color BUT pink.

I think we have 4 pairs now of these brightly colored jeggings- all with these adorable elbow-length sleeves and a vibrant shiny design on the front.  Yes, we’ve hit big kid styles, but I think she works it, don’t you?
