toy review #2 product~ Just Like Home Garden

(we got the plant one, tomato one, and pepper one)
The plant one was $8 on sale, the other two were $6 on sale.
We got them from toysrus but you can buy them online at amazon.

suggested age~ 3 and up

All were fun to play with.
The plants come apart in pieces so you have the stem, leaves, and different parts of the flower. The peppers and tomatoes come part also so you have the leaves, stem, and different cuts of each.

these are great for teaching things like~
parts of a plant
cutting vegetables (with a safety knife of course)

Each set comes with storage, you lift up the dirt and the box is hollow and fits all parts inside.

One thing I would suggested to look out for is the box. The corners of all three boxes where a little sharp. I actually cut my finger a little getting it out of the package.

I do recommend these toys for kids! Very good for learning fine motor skills.


  1. Thank you for the feedback. I have had these on my wishlist and wasn't sure of the quality or worth the dollars. They look bigger than I thought. Off to order them now.

  2. we have had them for days now and my kids are still playing with them as if we just bought them. the flower box is about foot long and the other two are about i would say 8 inches long

Organizing for summer cheap!

Recently I made my way to my local dollar store(same as Poundland in UK) and I am so happy I did. There was so many bins and buckets in many colors. So here is how I cleaned up my kids summer toys. For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…

Fizzing planets

I am sure I said this before but this really was one of my personal favorite actives. It came out amazing and my son loved it. Would for sure do this again. 
So it is simply called fizzing planets. You mix a little bit of water in baking soda and add food coloring to color it like the planet you choose. I went by a simple google picture to color the planets and then I realized I got some wrong but we also had a book to look at and read to see some real colors.  Once you make your planets let them cry for a couple of hours. You can place them in the freezer to speed this up. 

Then slowly pour vinegar over the planets to see them fizz! It started to look like a Galaxy then in the end it ended up looking like one big planet.

So neat!
