Kidizoom Smart Watch by Vtech - The Smartest Watch for Kids! #Giveaway

 (The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech. The Jackson Five Family blog is not responsible for prize fulfillment!)
Do you remember getting your first watch? Even if you couldn't tell time, you probably just felt important wearing one. Well times have certainly changed and VTech has come out with the smartest watch for kids called the Kidizoom Smartwatch.

The Kidizoom Smartwatch is perfect for kids ages 4 and up. It comes loaded with so much fun. Of course kids will be able to tell time, but they can also take photos and videos with it, play mini learning games and much more!

VTech sent us one of these new gadgets to try out and Grady loves it. It's so easy for kids to use and offers a 1.4" color touch screen making it simple for them to navigate from one thing to another.

Grady just started kindergarten so being able to see the numbers on the screen and tell us the time makes him feel like big stuff. Not only will kids love being able to tell time, but they will love the built-in timer, alarm clock, stopwatch and being able to choose from over 50 digital and analog displays.

Grady loves being able to use this to take pictures and video of his favorite things. Kids can use their creativity with fun photo effects, frames and filters.
The voice recorder is fun too. Kids are able to record their voice and choose from 5 different voice changing effects. Grady loves the one that makes him sound like a robot!

The VTech Kidizoom watch comes with 4  games and allows you to log onto the VTech Learning Lodge at www.vtechkids.com and download even more games. The watch is very entertaining and convenient for kids to wear everyday. It offers a kid-durable design that can withstand drops and bumps, is splash proof and sweat proof,  has a rechargeable battery and you can upload the photos and videos kids take right onto your computer.
It makes a great back-to-school gift and will be a fun item on those holiday wish lists this year!

We are so excited to be teaming up with VTech and are giving away 1 Kidizoom Smartwatch valued at $59.99!

Tupperware makes packing those back-to-school lunches easy!

Both boys' started school this week and it's been crazy trying to get back into a routine. Getting up early, packing lunches, trying to get 2 kids to different schools at the same time etc.. 
Our 3rd grader packs his lunch everyday and our kindergartener followed his foot steps the first day because the main menu was bbq pork sandwiches --I don't blame him. So the lunch challenges begin for the year. What to pack, what are the best containers, best lunch boxes and what's the most convenient for both my little packers and myself.
Today I'm happy to talk about some great back-to-school items from Tupperware that will help make packing those school lunches easy this year.
The first item is the Tupperware Sandwich Keeper. Perfect for peanut butter and jelly, cold cut sandwiches etc...
The Sandwich Keeper is designed to fit easily into backpacks and lunch boxes. It's one-piece construction means no seals or lids to keep track of or to get lost. The hinged cover is easy to open and keeps your sandwich fresh and ready to eat at lunch time. I love that it's dishwater safe too!
Next are the Tupperware Animal Water Bottles which are perfect for packing smoothies, juice or water on those hot school days. They feature an easy flip open cap that will make drinking from them easy and kids will love the fun animal designs -- A. Pengui in Papaya / Pink Punch, B. Benny in Salt Water Taffy / Midori. Again these are dishwasher safe and made for easy packing.
Tupperware's CrystalWave containers are perfect for packing lunches too. They are both microwave and dishwasher safe and if your child can heat up food at school they are the perfect meal solution.
Get all of these in the Sweet and Sassy Lunch Set which includes the Sandwich Keeper, Pengui Water Bottle, a CrystalWave container and a super stylish Insulated Lunch bag!

Head back-to-school with the 'Coolest Kids Labels and Gifts' this year!

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample from Stuck On You to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
School is starting for us this week! Where did the summer go? Emotions are running high, the boys and I are both excited and nervous all at the same time. We have one going into kindergarten and one starting 3rd grade in a new building this year so we have a lot of new beginnings happening all at the same time. One thing that is helping me is just being organized and knowing the boys will start the new school year off on the right foot.
We have all of our school supplies purchased, labeled and in their backpacks ready to be taken to class. The kids love their new Classic/Mini Pencil Labels from Stuck on You. Knowing everything is labeled makes them and me more comfortable knowing that they will have everything they need and will not get mistaken for another students items.
The Stuck on You pencil labels are small allowing you to label each pencil individually, but they are also perfect for labeling other items. We labeled their glue, scissors, erasers, markers, pens, glue sticks and much more.
 Stuck on You offers 'the coolest kids labels and gifts' and everything you need for back-to-school this year. They offer small and large name labels, clothing labels, personalized lunch boxes and backpacks, personalized water bottles and so many other items that will make keeping track of your gear easy this year!

Head back-to-school this year with Umi Childrens Shoes. Win a $60 Umi Gift Card!!

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature and giveaway. However, all opinions are honest and our own.)
Umi Children's Shoes
This . Boy. Loves. Boots

As a first time Umi Brand Ambassador and Certified Reviewer I was excited to browse the Umi site for the best back-to-school footwear.  Since Grady loves boots we decided that the Umi Riker II would be the perfect fit for him this school year.
The Riker II is built from durable leather with a reinforced tan suede heel and rubber outsole. It offers a 100% leather lining that is comfortable and offers kids feet the breathability they need! 
These boots are available in Olive Multi like Grady is wearing or a little bit more polished finish called Choc Multi found here. You wouldn't think that boots should be worn with shorts, but honestly we love the look and Grady will be able to wear these starting at the beginning of school going into the colder months!
I love that Umi offers quality and comfort while providing the latest looks for kids. They know that kids need a well constructed shoe that is not only comfortable, allows them to be active, but will also give them room to grow and they definitely put thought into their kids line -- "Comfy feet are happy feet. Happy Feet are healthy feet.
Make sure you check out both the boys and girls styles as you back-to-school shop this year!
We've teamed up with Umi and are giving away a $60 Umi kids footwear gift card!
