MAGFORCE Dump truck loader Review




I had an awesome opportunity to work with Toys "R" Us on a review of their MAGFORCE Dump truck loader. It took a couple weeks to finally get here but we love it!


MAGFORCE vehicles and play sets to help build a larger work site. MAGFORCE works through magnet infused technology. The MAGFORCE figures, power up and operate the play set and the vehicles in it. I found this to be pretty awesome, considering there were no batteries needed!


The Set includes:
  • Includes one magnet-activated dump truck loader,
  • One poseable magnetic figure, 
  • Two magnetic logs 
  • Two magnetic boulders

Collect all MAGFORCE vehicles and play sets here




My 3 year old son loves trucks! It didn't take him long to figure out how it worked. My only issue with it is how easy the front "scoop" is to come off. I had to repeatedly put it back on. Over and over again. I am pretty sure it became a game for him. Oh well. The Dump Truck Loader from Toys R Us contains a magnet infused technology to power up the vehicles. 




The MAGFORCE Central Command Center is a great switch from batteries. We burn though those things like crazy around here! Every thing runs on batteries. I highly recommend you try it out for yourself and let me know how much you like it!

Have you tried a MAGFORCE toy before? 

Buy it: MAGFORCE Dump truck Loader $9.98

Two Hip Peas in a Pod - Fluff Review!

Carolyn from Two Hip Peas in a Pod was gracious enough to send me one of her OS pocket diapers to review. First, I have to say how much I loved working with her. She is fantastic! I hope that we continue working together in the future. Carolyn really loves what she does. She is a mom of three herself. So she gets it. 

Baby girl really did look adorable in her pink and brown stripped fluff!! 
She is getting so big.
Don't forget to enter our Mama Madness Giveaway! Two Hip Peas in a Pod is giving away a custom diaper! Until then, read my review on Carolyn's diapers below.


Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥♥♥ We all know how I feel about my snaps. Love them! It makes using a diaper and making sure it fastens correctly so easy. The fact that there are 3 snaps on the wings is such a huge plus. I always have an issue with this. Just having 2 snaps on the wings isn't enough. They tend to fall and make the diaper loose. So I just love this aspect of it. 


Adjustable: ♥♥♥♥ This one size diaper is adjustable. Fitting babies about 8-35 lbs. I believe it is on the smaller side myself. However, baby girl had no problems. There are 3 rows in the front which change the size.   


Leak Proof: ♥♥♥♥♥ This Two Hip Peas in a Pod diaper has a hidden PUL layer. Making this one of the best options. The outside has a soft cuddly cotton layer. While the inner layer is a super soft minky. I recommend washing this diaper 7-10 times before use. (This is the standard for most diapers) Just so it reaches maximum absorbency. We had no issues with leaking. We even used it at night, with 2 inserts. It was obviously soaked, but not on the outside. There are 2 elastics in the back. Which I believe really helps avoid blow outs. The soaker used with this diaper is a Bumgenious. 



Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥ Prepping did not take long. I washed it 3 times before use. My wash routine includes a rinse cycle, and then a regular warm/hot wash. You do have to take the insert out by hand. Which is really not a big deal to me.


$$$$: ♥♥♥♥♥ By far this is the most reasonably priced fluff I have seen. You can purchase your own Two Hip Peas in a Pod for only $15! She currently does not make inserts, but has Bumgenious in stock for just $3 each. Still a great deal.


Cuteness Factor: ♥♥♥♥♥ I love when the PUL is hidden. It makes diapers so much cuter. I loved the colors she chose for me. They blended really well. The pink and brown is definitely a hit around here. Plus, minky dot is adorable too. 

Sizing: This is a One Size (OS) pocket diaper. It should grow with your child from about 8-25 lbs. I honestly believe it is adjustable enough to fit newborn. But do not take my word on that. 

Materials: Two Hip Peas in a Pod has an outer layer of soft cotton fabric, and the inner layer is super soft minky. There is also a hidden PUL layer. 



Overview: Overall, I really love this diaper. It fits baby girl perfectly, and is such an easy diaper to put on. There are so many great point. The pocket is in a great spot and the length of the wings is a huge plus. It is soft on her thighs and leaves no red marks. I love that I can double up on inserts and it still fit well. The size of this diaper is great. I love the fit and the look! I highly recommend this diaper.
Score: Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥♥♥ Adjustable: ♥♥♥♥♥ Leak Proof: ♥♥♥♥♥ Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥♥  $$$$: ♥♥♥♥♥ Cuteness Factor: ♥♥♥♥♥

Bundles and Buzz Mama Bundle Review

Have you heard of Bundles and Buzz? I originally found this company through Facebook and have joined in on there famous page bombs. I actually just one my second store credit from their Facebook bomb game. Maybe that will give me incentive to try a different bundle.



It's like being a child again and opening up a birthday present. What's more fun then opening up a bag of goodies to see what may be inside. Maybe it is just me, but I really am not that great with surprises. 
Bundles and Buzz came up with this great idea to give a new twist on the average subscription box. I love the concept of this. There are several options to choose from and I have been told their new Cloth bundles are coming soon. You can choose a Mama Bundle, baby Bundle or Toddler Bundle. They are always new and different goodies to be found in these bundles. 
These bundles are $30. I'm just not sold though. OK, so I did purchase the bundle.  It is great. I just don't see how there is supposed to be much gain from it all. I've been told that there is usually approximately $50 worth of goodies. 

I just don't see it, sorry. Maybe it was just my bundle that was lacking. I should have bought the baby bundle or toddler bundle. Those seem so much more, equipped. I'm not a displeased customer, just didn't know what to expect. Now I know. I'm not difficult to please by any means, so that isn't it either. 
Bundles and Buzz has great customer support and the ladies really are wonderful. I have enjoyed their games and plan to keep up with them. 
I decided to purchase their Mama Bundle. As you can see in my pictures. There is a bright purple bag. Very cute bag by the way. 
What was in my bundle
pepsi co. bag
Sweet Pits Deodorant
Lisa Ann - whipped Body butter
Quadra Island Soap (smells amazing!)
Balmshot Lipbalm
Scentuals Body lotion
Love true Naturals Self Tanner (That tiny little round container)
Moms Kisses (this is the cutest thing in this bundle, Love it. wonder if it works.)
Avon naturals vanilla shower gel. (Travel size.)
20% off Lisa Ann Skin Care
6 Months of IndieFlix (never heard of it)



What is your opinion? Am I being silly? I am still excited to try everything I received in my bundle. I have not gotten the chance to.  Maybe my opinion will change once I use the products. I guess I understand how the goodies I got would pertain to a Mama, but not this mama. In all, it really was a great experience and I will be purchasing again. Which bundle would you like to see me review? I will be purchasing again very soon and I would love your input. I will post the next bundle here as well.

FYI: I was not paid for this post, all opinions are my own. Bundles and Buzz is not compensating me in any way. I purchased the product noted above for myself. My experience will likely differ from yours. I still love Bundles and Buzz.
