Hideaway Pets coming to stores Nationwide!

"Jay at Play provided product for this review. My review is an honest opinion based on my own experience and has not been reviewed or edited by Jay at Play."

Odds are if you have young children you have heard of HideAway Pets. Every time the commercial comes on the television my children sing along, as I am sitting her typing I can here in my head "What do you get with a Hideaway Pet? Open up to play, curl up and hideaway. That's what you get with a Hideaway Pet". My entire family will stop whatever we are doing and sing-along. We recently had the opportunity to review the adorable Hedgehog HideAway Pet. 



The Hedgehog HideAway Pet is unbelievably soft and cuddly. Little T has been wanting one for awhile now so he was stoked when he opened up the package to find this adorable Hedgehog hiding inside. During the day he likes to curl him up and at night he likes to open up and cuddle up with him. There are 7 HideAway pets available including Hedgehog, Siberian Husky, Persian Kitty, African Lion, Snow Monkey, Lop Eared Bunny and Penguin. Keep an eye out because HideAway Pets will be arriving in stores nationwide!

Schlitterbahn Ice Chest Recipe Challenge! #BahnCooler

*Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Schlitterbahn, all opinions expressed in post are 100% mine.*

 Packing up your family for the day can be stressful and costly. Schlitterbahn helps to ease the stress and cost by allowing families to bring their own ice chests and provides free parking! If you visit parks often you know this is a huge deal, we love being able to bring our own food and drinks because then everyone gets what they want without all of the craziness. 

I am participating in the Schlitterbahn's Ice Chest Challenge. Here is my must have recipe for the kiddos.

Cheese and Fruit Kabobs

Food Needed: Cheddar Cheese cubes, Mozzarella cheese cubes, red grapes, pineapple chunks, kiwi cubes.

Let the kids create their own kabobs on skewers with their favorites before leaving home and pack in the ice chest. My kids love to mix and match their skewers to make them as colorful as possible. This provides a quick easy, mess free, healthy snack for everyone.

About The LEGO Movie:

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president's powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet's fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC's Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.



Each household is only eligible to win The Lego Movie Blu-Ray via blog reviews and giveaways. Only one entrant per mailing address per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.
