As a first time Mom about 9 years ago I became a avid reader of Parents Magazine. It was so valuable to me as a first time Mom for ideas and advice. There website today is a very valuable source for moms of babies to teens and all the ages in between.
Parents® is also industry leader when it comes to toys. Parents toys have received over 52 awards, including a Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal and the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.
Recently I received the Architecture ABCs from Parents® to review. My youngest is almost 6 years old so I didn't think she would fully appreciate them so I sent them for a local toy drive for families in need.
That being the case, I was very impressed with them and wished my kids would have had blocks like these when they were young. They are squeaky and squishy and oh so colorful. I loved the fact that they were soft with no dangerous hard edges. Each block has an adorable creature on it form an alligator to zebra, there is an animal for every letter in the alphabet
If you have a baby this year on your gift list yet to buy for these blocks would make a great gift. You can find them at your local Target store or at target.com for $19.99. As a Mom this product has my Mom's Seal of Approval.

As a tea lover these are things I would love. If you are looking for a gift for someone who likes tea these items should help you in your search.
Last Friday I mentioned using survey rewards to purchase Christmas presents. This year in addition to these survey rewards I have obtained several Christmas presents using My Coke Rewards. I won't mention what they are in case certain family members are reading but I can say that it about $100 worth of gifts. We are not big Coke drinkers in our house but I have several friends and family who give me their caps and codes from their Coke boxes. This does take time as you can only enter 10 codes a day but it has been well worth my time and effort. If you are like me any little bit helps when it comes to cutting down on Holiday spending. So, it is a little late for Christmas this year but start now and next Christmas you could have some pretty good gifts.

The story takes place in the magical land of Jhamora which is divided between two cultures – the Nohrin, winged masters of the skies, and the Lockni, the terrestrial tribe who harness the mystical powers of the land. When Delgo (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), a reckless Lockni teenager, forms a forbidden friendship with the spunky Nohrin Princess Kyla (Jennifer Love Hewitt), hostilities between the two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled empress (Anne Bancroft) to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule.
Combining a magical world, heart-pounding action, and forbidden romance, Delgo is the story of an unlikely hero who must prove his innocence, rescue a princess, reveal a traitor, end a war, and unite the peoples of Jhamora
Being a Mom I realize the importance of family friendly movies. Although this movie has not received much publicity I have watched the trailer and it looks like a very well done animation. I am looking forward to taking my family to go and see it. For more information and to watch the trailers visit delgo.com
