A Few More Things We Love

(From CSN Stores.)

I've mentioned a few times that CSN Stores have offered me a chance to review some of the products that they offer online. Honestly, I find their prices becoming more and more comparable to Amazon and I know for a fact that their customer service is top-notch (because I've needed to use it and they were speedy, on-the-ball, and very attentive to my needs!) I thought it was probably high time I shared what products we've selected - and loved - using.

First off, we selected the PlasmaCar because it just looks so cool. We had seen them advertised locally and were curious about them so we decided we'd check it out and gift the boys with it for Christmas. If you are unfamiliar with them, here's the scoop:

It's like magic, but you don't need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power. It's so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface. For starters, it doesn't require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement. It's quiet too - the only sound you'll hear is the sound of its wheels. It provides kids with plenty of exercise and the PlasmaCar is engineered to be absolutely safe when used appropriately. It's been extensively tested, and meets or exceeds all significant international safety standards.

(You can learn more about these on the PlasmaCar website.) It's really cool how it works - just by rotating the steering wheel from side to side.

The boys absolutely love it and it has been ridden every single day - multiple times a day - since the gift of it was received. Our 1 1/2 year old learned how to successfully navigate with it, our 4 year old takes great delight in making it go "fast! fast!" and there might be someone even older in our household who has chased little boys around the room on it. (Thankfully we have wood floors and we can ride such things in the house. Plus, it rains here in Oregon so having things like this inside is something of a necessity when it comes to using up energy.)

Big. Big. Hit.

Ok, and here is the thing Mommy selected for our newbie which we are expecting here in the can't-get-here-fast-enough future:

We kinda always thought we'd have a family of all boys but it's nice to know a girl is on the way! Our kid room is decorated in a western theme and I was hoping to add some girl-ish touches to it. I was really excited to find these particular crib sheets by JoJo Designs. Pink retro-western cowgirls! I couldn't be more happy with them.

They are now washed and tucked away, awaiting the day when we can pull them out and use them but it's very fun to have some new girl crib sheets on hand to make things a bit more special.

I appreciate CSN Stores for giving me the opportunity to check out their product line, their service and the ability select things that are either useful or playful for our family. It's a great blessing. Thank you!

Oh, you are so clever!! Western style room for a girl!

We are SOOOOO boring when it comes to all things decorations.

Since we don't find out what we're having, our daughter had a farm theme (lots of pale green) and so did our son...and future children. We did have a couple sheets that were feminine. M's room now is purple...but mostly lacking in decor...E's room has ONE picture hanging in it. Oh well.
