Pumpkin lights! – Liberty Imports’ Halloween Pumpkin Lights.


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love everything about it, espically the decorations. Nothing is more iconic than the Jackolantern either. These lights are really cute. Even though they are not LED, they have them made to keep working, even when a light  goes out. I was able to test this out immediately too. One of my pumpkins would not light up upon arrival. Poor thing stayed dark while all of the other pumpkins slowly blinked along. They include 2 spare bulbs with this set. This is a blinking set. There is no other setting option available. On this set of lights from Liberty Imports, you get 10 pumpkins. The individual lights slide into the top of each pumpkin too. There is only 24” of leader line from the plug to first pumpkin, so you may need to use an extension cord, if you are hanging them up. I needed to use one. The entire set is approx.. 11ft long. Every pumpkin is about 12” apart, and each pumpkin is a pretty good size, at 2 ½” in diameter. They plug into a regular outlet, and can use any extension cord, since they have a 2 prong plug. When I first tested them out, I literally just laid them on the floor near me, and let them run all night. The pumpkins are so large, that they never even get warm to the touch when on. This is great, because little ones are drawn to lights, and will definitely try to touch them. When my youngest was little he was drawn to Jackolanterns because of their faces. He loved everything with faces, lol. Overall this is a fun set of lights. I wish they had an option to stay on fully, but since they blink slowly, they are still comfortable to look at and are enjoyable. Some lights blink so fast, so they can make you dizzy, and hurt your eyes. Fortunately, this set is not like that. The green wiring gives the resemblance of pumpkin vines, so the lights look extra cute to me. With all of the LED lights hitting the market, these almost look old fashioned, lol. I actually shocked myself with that reaction. I love, love, love the look. These are sooooo much cuter than the thin LED pumpkin lights I’ve seen. The wonderful character of a Jackolantern, gets lost that way. These are truly iconic.

Shopping in style – No. 1 Supplements’ Trolley Bags Pack Of 4 with Insulated Cooler Bag.


trolley bags 1

I have been seeing those really cool shopping cart organizer bags for a while now. They are really an organizers dream. I have been wanting to see one in person. Get my hands on one, myself, to see what they are really about. So many things look great in ads, but then when you see them in person – meh! Well, now that I have one to try out, I still think they are so cool! They really are. This is a set of 4 bags. When they arrive, you need to unroll them, and ten just organize them. They have the handles all tucked into the Velcro, to make it a tighter roll, easier to ship. Once it’s organized, you can roll it up, and Velcro it shut. If you do it right, then when you get to the store, you can just open it up, and roll out the bags onto the carts’ sides. It really is that easy. The 4 bags are all pretty large, and one of them is an insulated bag for your frozen, and perishable goods. The bags are not all the same size. The Orange is the largest, and wraps around all of the other bags, when you are done with them. Then comes the green bag, then the red bag, and last but not least, the blue insulated bag. Each bag has Velcro along its’ sides to connect them to each other. They all have their own handles as well, for carrying them into the house, after your shopping is done. The only bag that velcros shut is the blue, insulated bag, that is to help ensure that your goodies stay cold. However, it can only be shut for the trip home, if you do not have that much in it. Unfortunately, they did not incorporate a flap closure, to allow more product in the bag. Maybe, with feedback, they will alter that. If you are handy, you can also make one for the bag. The material is thick and sturdy. It’s not a natural fabric at all, but since it reduces the waste, by alleviating the need for so many disposable bags, is still highly eco-friendly. The bottom halves of the three, non-insulated bags, is made out of a mesh material. Very reminiscent of beach bags. This helps to keep the weight down of each bag, and allows airflow to the food, which is important for produce. As it is, since the bags are pretty large, they will not be good for those with physical impairments, where it’s harder to handle a heavier bag. For example, my older mother, could not carry these larger bags full of food.

          Orange bag is 21” wide, 20” long, and 11” deep

          Green bag is 19” wide, 19” long, and 9 ½” deep

          Red bag is 15 ¾” wide, 8” deep

          Blue Insulated bag is 13 ½” wide, 15” long, and 7 ½” deep

I measured the bags, and got these measurements myself. For example on how much can fit in the orange bag: 6 2 liter Diet Coke Bottles and 1 large 3L bottle of Cranberry Juice. All of the plastic dowels, sewn into the bags, are 26” long. They are weatherproof, and sturdy, and rest along the basket sides, really well. If you break one, they are replaceable. They left the underside of the bar area open. So, you could easily remove the broken one, and replace it with another. You can always at least find wood dowels at the hardware store. I am very happy and impressed with these overall. The company even offers a lifetime money back guarantee! That’s pretty impressive. You do not always have to use these bags as a set, either. Just un-velcro one, and use it at will. They store so easily in home and in car. They are just too handy. FYI – My husband was actually stopped leaving the store using these, by someone who was in awe and in love with these Trolley Bags.

Family fun with this toy! – Avalanche Brands’ Miposaur.


I have a just turned 9, year old son. He loves dinosaurs, and interactive electronics. This toy combines the two. In other words, I have a very, very happy son right now. This toy is silly and fun. Does it run flawlessly, and perfectly, like the directions say. Well, no it doesn’t. But, no toy like this ever has for us, lol. It runs well, and really entertains, so it’s a winner in our eyes. My son does have another interactive toy like this; a cat. So, we are used to how they are supposed to operate. We are liking the additions of the trackball and Miposaur app for our Android devices. That adds two different levels of interaction, which is a nice plus. If you get tired, or bored, of one way, you have two other ways to interact with it at that time. The app is free on Android from the Playstore. Just type in Miposaur in the search, and it comes up as Miposaur from Wowwee Group Ltd. I cannot personally vouch for IOS.  The app did not take up a lot of room on our devices either.

The Miposaur requires 4 AA batteries, and the trackball requires 4 AAA batteries. They are not included, and you will need a Philips Head screwdriver to access the compartments. Our remote links up right away, and we haven’t had any issues with communication between the two. The trackball is easy to hold and use. Part of it is a dial, that you just turn to the action desired. There are no words to read, just pictures of the actions: Dance, Food, Teddy Bear, Ball, Leash and Beat Box modes. The Beat Box mode is so funny, I love it. You can also interact with hand gestures. Overall, it’s pretty easy to do. Sometimes, it doesn’t pick up on the hand gestures. The IR sensors are in located in the nose area. You need to do the gestures clearly in front of this area , and not to fast, or the Miposaur can’t read them. The same goes with the 2 clapping modes. You need to clap loud and clear, and concisely, and it picks it up well. If you rub the back of it’s neck, it makes the cutest sound. My husband, myself, and my now 9 year old, are having a lot of fun with it. Ours has been working very well. Most often when it doesn’t pick up our movements, it’s because we aren’t doing it right, or in the right place. Leash mode has been our most inconsistent mode. It will work on carpet, but definitely works smoother on hard surface flooring. We have also noticed that when using it outside, the sunlight can effect it, making it harder to read what you want it to do. Overall, it is a lot of fun. It brings out a lot of laughter in us. I love how smoothly the app works with the Miposaur. It’s really a fun toy.
