TruKid is back with another awesome product…the Hero Stick!
The Hero Stick is a natural soothing balm that protects and soothes skin irritations like boo-boos, bug bites, eczema, and rashes. The stick is handy to keep in your purse, diaper bag, or backpack to pull out whenever your child needs some relief. The Hero Stick is made with Balm of Gilead, Calendula, and Plantain Leaf. There are no parabens, artificial colors, or fragrances, which is music to my ears because while other products soothe, keeping the yucky stuff out of the stuff that goes on my kids' skin is priceless.
We've used the Hero Stick for a few things around here. For some reason, Baby D really likes to get a chair and get the Hero Stick down and put it on all of his boo boos…or even just his healthy skin! It feels really good going on, so I guess that's why he does it! We also use it for bug bites and rashes, and when the Captain had a chapped face the other day from his cold, the Hero Stick was the only thing he'd let us put on him, which made for fast healing!
You can buy the Hero Stick on the TruKid website or Amazon for $12.50.
Enter for a chance to win your own Hero Stick (perfect for stocking stuffers!) in the Rafflecopter form below! Giveaway ends at 11:01, central time, on November 14, 2012. Good luck!

Captain Fussybuckets will turn four this week and I'm constantly looking for ways to stimulate his brain while having fun. That's why I was happy to hear about Cypher Kids Club Reality Cards to use with our iPad. The apps are free and easy to download and the cards are available at Target.
We were able to review the wild animals cards, numbers cards, and letters cards. The Captain chose wild animals first! Once you have the cards, all you have to do is download the app from the app store and begin having fun and learning about wild animals!
First, you select which animal you'd like to learn about first. Then, you find the card that matches and line it up with the camera on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
It will magically bring to life an image and tell all about that animal!
The Captain and Baby D are really enjoying exploring and learning using their Cypher Kids Club Reality Cards! The Numbers and Letters Cards are just as great as the Wild Animals cards, and the boys can really get into them for a while!
If you're confused on how all of this works, check out the Captain's demonstration:
The Cypher Cards are compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. The apps are optimized for iPhone 5.
These cards can be purchased at Target. They would make a great gift for a young learner that you know!

Christmas is coming and that means it’s time to start thinking about unique gifts! So this year, why not put personalized T-shirts under your tree? They’re fun, memorable, and your family will wear them with pride again and again.
It’s all about getting creative – upload a refrigerator-worthy work of art from school or a picture from their favorite family vacation, or even design something they’ll love forever using one of over one thousand templates.
Your kids can help, too! Make Dad a tee to take on business trips or Grandma something that’ll always make her smile. And at just $2 each, these customizable Basic and Kids’ T-shirts will leave you with plenty of cash for stocking stuffers. Create your own personalized T-shirts this Christmas – they’re one of a kind, affordable enough for the whole family, and as comfy as they are festive. (shipping starts at $4.50)
Traveling with kids is always a bit difficult. My kids have always slept better in their own beds, which has made some nights away from home dreadful. Neither of my boys ever really liked the Pack 'n Play after they got past the baby stage. We take along Captain Fussybuckets' couch, but it's not ideal for sleeping all night long since he's so tall now. He's at an age where he really needs his own bed where he can stretch out and get a good night's rest. The Tuckaire Toddler Travel Bed by The Shrunks is the perfect size for him, even though he is almost four. He will soon need an upgrade, but that's okay, because The Shrunks makes a Twin Travel Bed, as well! But for now, this thing is super roomy and comfy, and a regular size toddler bed sheet fits over the inner (brown) part.
And since Baby D is the real toddler in this house, I wanted to show that it's the perfect size for him, too! It's the size of his crib, plus it has inflatable guard rails so he doesn't fall off because he's not used to sleeping on a bed:
And, while it's probably not ideal, two little boys DO fit on it together if you're in a pinch!
What I love about the Shrunks Toddler Travel Bed:
The Shrunks Toddler Travel Bed is priced right at $79 for the mattress, air pump, and carry bag. You can add on accessories, like a sheet, blanket, pillow, and more. OR you can get TWO Travel Toddler Beds for only $129. And right now, this bed is only $54.99 at Amazon! The Shrunks products are also sold at places like Babies R Us, Walmart, Target, and more, so check out the website to find a retailer near you.
