Plant Therapy review

Plant Therapy sent me their Germ Destroyer blend to review.

With the start of the school year fast approaching this is a must have. These are 100% pure essential oils specifically for kids 2-10.  This formula is meant to attack bacteria and viruses. It can protect the whole family from getting sick by destroying germs. With Mr Crazy life having immune system issues this is essential in our home. We have been diffusing Germ Destroyer and will dilute between 1% and 3% using fractioned coconut oil for the carrier oil

Germ destroyer contains 100% pure, undiluted essential oils of Spruce, Marjoram, Lavender, Rosalina and Lemon.

Check out my previous review of two of their other formulas.

Kidpreneurs sent me this AWESOME book.
This book teaches our kids basic principles of proper management of money.  My daughter and I read a chapter a day and did the quiz at the end of each chapter. The book was written at kid level while providing valuable information.

The chapters cover every topic in easy to understand language for the kid and resources at the end to help the parent guide their child.

Little crazy life and I were very excited to get this book and put it to use. As a result Little Crazy has opened a business of her own and is on Etsy! :) Start up costs were covered by us and she has to pay us back with a portion of her profits.

The cool thing about the authors (Adam and Matthew Toren) is they have researching and teaching techniques by running their own businesses.

That means during hours of errands and shuffling your kids around you can stylishly track your activities!  Some of the items have a fabric pouch to place and secure your fitbit, but many use a silicone pouch.

Wild Republic review

Wild Republic sent me t me a cool reversible penguin stuffed animal. It’s part of their switch-a-rooz line. This is Chilli/Willi. Their best friends are Cookie/Hollar. 
They come from the land of Roo,  where they solve everyday challenges. They embrace differences and spread messages of friendship and acceptance (inside and out). The construction seems to be pretty good with super sturdy stitching when I pulled on the seams. They have big beautiful glittery eyes and silky smooth fur!

Ark Therapuetic review and giveaway

ARK Therapeutic is a family company. They specialize in oral motor therapy to help a variety of goals. In 15 years they have developed over 80 products for speech and oral motor development, sensory integration, oral defensiveness, texture aversions, drinking, and feeding to name a few. 
ARK therapeutic sent me a couple pieces of chewelry from their new arrivals. This is fantastic! They have gem and brick shaped necklaces with a breakaway necklace cord, and also pencil toppers! I might have to get the pencil toppers before school. Their chew items have 6 colors and levels of toughness. These are great for sensory output for kids who have oral fixations, autistic, Asperger’s, or chew their nails. Little Crazy saw these and really wanted one. She chews her nails until they almost bleed. She wanted one that feels like fingers so she will quit chewing. When I communicated this to customer service they recommended these.

The things I love most about these items is EVERYTHING! They are made in the USA, medical grade, on the go, and the cords are breakaway so as not to cause injury if snagged on something.

I'm going to age myself here. Having worked with children that have a range of disabilities these are absolutely wonderful. The internet was a new thing when I worked with these children or I would have bought these on my own dime. Seriously!
Little Crazy Life says "This is a good necklace to help you from chewing nails or when you get freaked out"

The Theatre Box Review

Ok Crazy Lifers I have an AWESOME Review for you.

This is the worlds first commercial PORTABLE wireless speaker that delivers 360 degree 3D sound! This is going to be fantastic! This THEATRE BOX is geared for up to 2,000 sq ft room with no wires, apps, internet or complicated setup. All you have to do is pair it up with Bluetooth to any device (version 4.0) or with an aux-in cable.

In reading the literature The 360 degree sound makes every spot in the room the optimal listening location. The THEATRE Box uses Q3D Holophony. The unit has four 2 inch full range drivers and one 3 inch active bass driver paired with dual core digital audio processing circuits.

The THEATRE BOX is 4.3” x10.3” x 3.3” and is compatible with ios, android, windows and Linux, and Any A2DP enabled blue tooth device.  It runs off an rechargeable Lithium Ion battery with playback time of up to 20 hours.

In looking at their website they even have a leather carry case! How awesome is that!? This can run up to 20 hours when fully charged!

"THEATRE BOX by ACEMILE, is the world's first commercially available portable wireless speaker that delivers a 360-degree virtual 3D surround audio experience to everyone in the room, no matter the orientation to the speaker. THEATRE BOX has no wires and doesn't require any apps, Internet or complicated set-up; simply pair a smartphone, tablet, laptop, gaming console or TV via Bluetooth v.4.0 and start enjoying 360-degree surround sound. location or "sweet spot."

Now here is Mr. Crazy Lifes input;

The hype behind the Theatre Box is well placed, this thing is awesome!  The speaker arrived in an amazingly crafted box to ensure it's safe arrival and the design of it only added to the excitement.  I have had many home theater systems in the past, but this honestly is the best of the bunch for so many reasons.

First, is the compact size of the speaker.  The box has a total of 5 speakers, in a 10.3 x 3.3 x 4.3 inch package, that create a realistic 360-degree surround sound.  I hooked it up to my tv in about 30 seconds of effort and, because my daughter had the remote, tested it on an episode of My Little Pony.

Later it got a full day of movies and music as a test.  The sound quality, regardless of what was on, was clean, crisp and didn't require me to sit in one spot over another to get the best listening experience.  The fact that is is completely portable and can play up to 20 hours on a charge makes it the perfect speaker to take anywhere.  The pairing with my Bluetooth device was easy and it stayed connected, unlike some systems that loose connection easily.  The speaker offers an extremely unique feature of having a built-in microphone for hands-free calls.  That feature alone makes the speaker perfect for even an office setting.  The control panel, on top of the device, is slick and easy to use.  I like that the control buttons are flush with the surface so it doesn't distract from the overall look.  We received a blue speaker, which makes it a cool statement in the room.  My advice is if you're looking for a home theater system check the Theatre Box out.  The simplicity of the system, the amazing sound and the portability are all A+.  Word is a remote is on the horizon and once that hits you've got the final piece to make this speaker the absolute best home theater on the market at a more than reasonable cost.
