Rain's First Headphones: Kidz Gear

travel headphones for kids

        I remember buying these M&Ms headphones at JFK Airport on our way back to Manila because I thought they were cute. When I wear them, it looks like I have M&Ms inside my ears. It looked really cool. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the sound quality. It sounded like music out of a can. Money down the drain. I mean, was it just a toy for kids?!

        Anyway, my little toddler now is at that stage where she really enjoys music. Music from all the animations she watches. Particularly songs from Disney's Princess Sofia the First, Tinkerbell, Daniel Tiger, and more. Hence, for long trips I think she will need to start using headphones.

        I've never tried letting Rain use any type of earphones. Mainly because my current headphones are my iPhone's in-ear headphones which I'm pretty sure is not for kids. If she ever has the need to wear a headphone, it should be something kid-friendly, but at the same time has the same good quality as an adult's real headphones. Not like the M&Ms headphones I got.

And this is where Kidz Gear steps in...

Collapsible Silicone Lunchboxes (With Buy 5 Take 1 Sale!)

collapsible containers

        My husband Richie has a fetish for containers. I'm also not sure why. But he does. So whenever we would see a nice looking plastic container, the type where you can store lunch or snacks, he gets drawn to it. And sometimes ends up buying. But as all of us know, these plastic containers really take up so much space in our kitchen cabinets when not in use. And they always end up tumbling out as soon as I attempt to open the cabinet.

        Well, fret not! Coz I just received these cool silicon collapsible lunch containers available at Baby Lab Enterprises! This really solves my space issues!

Mini Melissa Conquers the World!

Mini Melissa

        I think it was about a year ago in Greenbelt 5 when this pink shoe with a purple bow caught my eye. I was looking for a comfortable shoe for Rain that she can wear anywhere that will look stylish, and at the same time will give Rain comfort. I picked it up and recognized that there was a certain strawberry scent to it. It reminded me a lot of those scented stationary sets when I was in grade school. I immediately liked it and we  bought it for Rain. That's when I first discovered about Mini Melissa shoes.

        And then I remember taking an Instagram photo of this cute kiddie sandals with an 8-bit heart design in Bonifacio High Street. And turns out, it was also Mini Melissa.

        Needless to say, I was becoming drawn to Mini Melissa shoes because not only are they just so darn attractive, they are also very comfortable to wear for kids! Mini Melissa shoes are comfy stylish shoes for little girls from 1-5 years old.

Jollitown Just Came to Life at The Big Fun Event!

        I can only imagine the giddiness on the Jollitown children fan's faces as soon as their parents told them about Jollitown coming to life! This big fun event all happened just this previous Sunday at the SMX Convention Center. They have ssuccessfullytransformed a whole activity function room into a Jollitown wonderland! It was like a theme park of balloon houses with lots of toys for all members of the Jollibee Kids Club! A total of 13 fun activity areas for kids and kids at heart!

Splurge in Memories: Mascots For Your Special Parties!

        I remember when I was a little girl, I was in love with the Disney animation Aladdin. At night before I went to sleep, I would often dream about personally meeting these characters and being BFFs with them. But what hurt was that I knew that it could only be a dream. I know all kids are like this up to a certain age. They idolize certain characters so much that they want these characters to be real. So imagine the delight of a child when they see a certain character come to life and actually interact with them? That, dear parents, is priceless!

        Here is my little celebrant during her birthday, trying to process if what she's seeing is actually a familiar happy snowman that she only sees in the screen... Who is it?....

Rain's 3rd Birthday Party: A Royal Ball

        For two straight years, Rain has been a Sesame Street baby. So her first 2 birthdays has been Sesame Street-themed. But as she turns 3, (and with a little influence from her mama hehehe) she has turned her attention to all things princess-y! And as always, my ever dependable mom-in-law transformed her backyard into a Disney Princess Fantasy land! I must say she really did an excellent excellent job! So I wanted to share it with you! 

Presenting... Rain's Royal Ball: A Costume Party!
