NEW Snail Mail For Kids: Kids Get Personalized Letters in the Mail!

Kids love getting stuff in the mail. I know mine do. Snail Mail for Kids is a new opportunity for them to get something fun and personalized through the mail.

Snail Mail for kids will send your kids a personalized letter once a week. You can choose monthly, 3 month or 6 month plans. You kids or grand kids will receive letters personalized to them with fun things included like stickers, trading cards, souvenirs, and more.

I know my kids would be coming home from school going “Did my snail mail come in yet?” Everyone likes getting something fun in the mail right? Hmm maybe they should make this for adults too lol

I was surprised to see how affordable it was to get weekly mailings. You can get your first box for 50% off!

My question personally was, ok I have 2 kids that would enjoy this I guess I’d have to pay for 2 subscriptions. NOPE it actually says that if you have 2 children it says they can include 2 kids and 2 enclosures at no additional cost. I think that’s awesome. If you have more than 2 kids you can have the letters addressed to the entire family. IE The Smith Family. That’s awesome. As a mom of 4, so often I’ve had to pass on things because I just couldn’t afford to do it for everyone. It’s hard to get a subscription box for one kid then another kids going “Can I get one too?”

While some subscription services can get pretty expensive this one is much more affordable especially for families with multiple children!

I think this could be an interesting way to encourage reading in kids. My youngest is 6 years old and learning to read. She’s doing pretty well but, anything I can do to encourage a love of reading, I’ll try it.

Snail Mail for Kids is also giftable. Just choose the gift option.

LEGO is Building Up Their Game With LEGO Hidden Side

LEGO is one of those toys that are timeless. Kids enjoy building with LEGOs as much today as they did 30 years ago. I still enjoy sitting down and playing with LEGOs with my kids. I love to see the ingenuity, the creativeness, and the problem-solving skill come into play.

Once you get a masterpiece completed sometimes it’s hard to decide, Do you smash it or do you display it? LEGO Hidden side lets you increase the enjoyment of your accomplishment by ridding it of the unwanted guests. Yea you read that right. After you build your creation, LEGO Hidden Side uses AR technology via a free app that lets you detect and catch ghosts in your new creation.

LEGO Hidden Side offers 8 different sets from budget friendly J.B.’s Ghost Lab to the large haunted high school. My 10 year old son already has a few sets on his Christmas wish list.

Check out the LEGO Hidden Side Comic-Con trailer:

I’m no toy expert but I have a hunch that these will be the hot LEGO sets for Christmas. If my 10 yr old son and my 6 yr old daughter already want one, you know they’ll be talking about them too.

We Had a HuePets Party with Tryazon

I’ve co-hosted giveaways with HuePets on my blog a number of times but I never really tried out the app. Tryazon gave me the opportunity to have a HuePets party and try the app out with my friends and family.

The idea of HuePets is that it’s a fun interactive app that encourages kids to make healthy food choices by eating foods in different hues or colors. They can actually scan their healthy choice foods to hatch and grow their own virtual HuePet via the app.

You can watch this video that explains the updated version of the app, HuePets 2.0:

What I did for my HuePets party was to buy fruits and veggies in as many of the colors as I could for the app. I had purple cauliflower, green grapes, red raspberries, orange baby carrots, white dragonfruit, green broccoli, red bell peppers, and lots more. The kids loved seeing all the color fruits and veggies and really chowed down.

Their parents dowloaded the app. They were getting so excited over their HuePets evolving and adding new features and accessories. You can also set rewards for making healthy choices like movie night, game night, etc or choose rewards from the HuePets store.

If I’m to be honest, my kids don’t normally turn their nose up and fruits and veggies. I purposely bought some “different” ones that we don’t normally have though like the purple cauliflower, dragonfruit, and starfruit. Most people were interested in trying the more unique offerings.

There were squeals of delight and lots of “look at mine!” shouts when HuePets would evolve. There were some pretty cool looking HuePets with all the vibrant foods we had available.

HuePets is a free app that is available on Google Play and iTunes app store

This is a free app that is definitely worth downloading. It’s fun, it’s engaging, and it encourages your kids to make healthy choices.

We received some HuePets swag as a member of Tryazon. Any opinions expressed are our own.


Sambucol Black Elderberry for a Back to School Immune Boost

I had heard about the benefits that elderberry could offer for the immune system a couple years ago. While on a trip to NC about 2 years ago I came across a little tent at a farmer’s market. They made their own elderberry syrup. The woman who makes and sells it was very enthusiastic and believed in her product. I bought a bottle to try. I ended up seeing first hand how the product helped. The kids were lining up eagerly to get their daily spoonful because they liked the taste so much. Unfortunately they didn’t their bottles to Pennsylvania. I tried to find a suitable alternative but everything fell short until I tried Sambucol Black Elderberry.

Sambucol Black Elderberry comes in a variety of forms too: Pastilles (lozenges), gummies, liquid, and dissolving tabs. They have an amazing taste that my kids look forward to. With the start of the school year, I’ve been making sure everyone gets their daily dose.

Tryazon gave me the opportunity to have a Sambucol Back to School Healthy Party. Of course, I wasn’t going to turn that down! My guests and I got to sample the products, learn about the products, and have a good time with it.

Back to School seems to be the time that our family always gets sick. But not this year. I’ve been fall cleaning and making sure my kids get their daily dose of Sambucol Black Elderberry. Sambucol isn’t just for back to school season though. It’s great for cold and flu season too. I like to take it when I’m feeling a little “bleh” like maybe I could be catching something. Or if we were around someone that was sick.

I handed out a bunch of coupons at my party but I still have a few left. If you’d like to try Sambucol for yourself, just comment below letting me know you’d like one and I’ll happily send out a $2 off coupon for you. They don’t expire until 6/30/2021

Otherwise you can use the store locator to find Sambucol products near you. Or find Sambucol products on Amazon.
