Product Review: Brio and Ravensburger

I always look forward to the opportunity to review Wonder Forge products and games. This time, their representative contacted me regarding their Brio and Ravensburger brands. As always, I was impressed with the products they offer.

 

The Brio Countryside Horse Set is terrific. It's made from high-quality wood (FSC certified) and it's not so massive that it takes up your entire playroom. The wooden railway allows children to take their horse over the rocks and to the hidden pasture. It's battery operated and great for toddler - preschool age children (I have a four-year-old). It's very affordable at $64.00 and a great option for the train or horse fanatic in your house!

 

The Brio Highchair Toy is an adorable toy that fits securly to your highchair top. My nephew loves it! It is great to be able to put the baby in the highchair while you finish preparing the meal and have something to occupy them that won't get thrown to the floor right away! The colors and design are bright and attractive. It also makes noise when the wheel is pushed! This is great for little ones. It retails for $27.99

 

Lastly, I requested the ScienceX Smartscope for my older children. This allows you to use your own smart phone or tablet to magnify your own objects that you find. Things like feathers, sand, water and insects can be used. Or, kids can study the objects on the included manual and poster. It's very educational and interesting for kids 8+. It retails for $44.99 and is sure to provide hours of fun for a long time to come.

Any of these fantastic products would make great Easter gifts for the kids in your life!

Product Review: Shielo Intensive Hair Mask

I use a lot of medicated shampoo products on my hair so I was excited for the opportunity to review Shielo's Intensive Hair Mask.

From their website:
An intensive treatment for hair that restores elasticity, freshness and suppleness to dry, chemically treated or damaged hair. The mask instantly repairs to make hair look fresh, moisturized and free flowing. It is a concentrated formula of organic ingredients, complex peptides and highly moisturizing agents that make hair manageable and beautiful.

For normal hair, use once per week. For extremely damaged hair, use twice per week until hair is restored. Results can be expected after one time use of the product.

My hair immediately felt better after just one use. My hair is thick and it immediately felt softer and more managable.  

The Intensive Hair Mask is available for purchase on Shielo's website for $42. The cost is a little high, but the product is high quality and since it's not a daily use product, will last for quite a while.I use their Volume Bounce Style Creme regularly and really like it as well.

Keeping Children Safe Around Curtains and Blinds

In the infographic below, Curtains-blinds.co.uk offers a precious piece of information advising how to keep children safe using a window child safety device. Parents should avoid risky situations that might put their children in danger. This includes when there are free hanging cords or chains with blinds.

The below infographic shows how to proceed when you have small kids left unsupervised and blinds in your room. Curtains-blinds.co.uk recommend checking first if there are window blinds that do not have connectors for the back cords or breakaway clips that break under pressure and second to replace with ones that have. They say we all should be aware of these preventive actions to create a safe environment for our kids.

Free online course "Functioning Above Entry Level"

Have you recently felt limited in your career or like you are not fully reaching your potential? A new free online course from Concordia University may be able to help you achieve more of your goals. We, at Market Mommy, are a strong advocate of continuing education and were very interested when this course was introduced to us.

It is entitled “Functioning Above Entry Level” and it’s perfect for the career-savvy individual who wants to build and expand on their leadership skills. It is conveniently delivered right to your inbox. The course aims to instill confidence and help you understand your own personal strengths. I was lucky enough to be given access to the course so I could share some of its benefits with you.

Ask yourself these questions. Are you functioning at your highest capacity? Do you have a strategic vision for yourself? As we advance, or maybe travel through, our career, we sometimes get in a rut. If you are interested in bettering yourself and leading others, this might be a great chance to pull yourself out of that rut.

The course is completely free, so there is no financial commitment; it’s a risk-free opportunity! The course consists of three lessons, each of which takes about an hour to complete. The time commitment is minimal, but the benefit could be tremendous. There really is no reason not to give it a try. It is specifically designed for busy professionals who want great, easy to digest material, presented in a manageable time frame.

Each lesson is comprised of short essays, videos, worksheets and interactive polls. The course is comprehensive and varied to give you the best experience. The instructor, Dr. Kenneth Harris, is a nationally recognized expert in personal leadership. The course content is actually taken from one of Concordia University’s Master’s program in Organizational Leadership and Administration.

Lesson one focuses on emotional and social intelligence. The premise is that having control over your emotions will equal having control over your life. The section focuses on getting to know yourself and the traits that you possess that can launch you to success. The social intelligence component goes into details about your own self-awareness, social beliefs and attitudes. According to the course both of these qualities are necessary to function above entry level. “Social interaction enhances intellect; intellect enhances emotion; emotion enhances social interaction, and so on.”

Do you feel motivated? Do you have initiative? Lesson two focuses on internal forces. This portion of the course explores the effects of internal forces on several areas. The types of things that affect your personality are how you reward yourself, how you think and how you regulate your emotions. It also looks at the importance of conscientiousness. How you manage all of these things will determine how and when you will excel at your position.

Training, leadership, culture are all external forces that can affect your success. The course encourages you to take advantage of training and leadership opportunities. Training especially can result in personal growth. As a conclusion, the lesson highlights the need to have your life at equilibrium. Balance is essential for success.

Does this material intrigue you? Are you invested in yourself and self-improvement? Take advantage of this free course and take some time to learn more about yourself and your potential. You may find that it expands your opportunities in ways you didn’t expect.

To sign up, simply follow this link. You can also learn more by visiting Concordia University, on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or YouTube. If you sign up, I’d love to hear more about your experience and how the course helped you specifically! #cuwselflead
