Time for my readers that are parents of young kids to get excited! Today we have a review of an awesome company, Stuck on You, and a little giveaway! When they contacted us a little while back about sending some personalized goodies for Livia we naturally jumped at the chance and I must admit that I got a little giddy when I saw how adorable everything was when it showed up on our doorstep!
Stuck on You Personalized Height Chart Livia's room is all about animals, so I knew this growth chart would be perfect for her when I saw it. It comes with cute stickers so that you can track how tall she is at each of her first ten birthdays. If she's anything like me she'll max out at around age 5, so here's hoping she gets some height genes laying dormant somewhere in there :-)
I'm really impressed by how high quality the height chart is. It's a nice, heavy canvas that will hold its own among the chaos that is Livia and her room. Every parent knows how hard it is to keep kids -- particularly a wild 9-month old -- from ripping and pulling things. Suffice to say this growth chart passed the Livia test.
By the way, I took about 20 photos of Livia with the growth chart, but homegirl is fast! I don't like taking photos with flash, but it's nearly impossible to get a non-blurry photo. Here's the best I could do:
Stuck on You Personalized Silicone Placemat This placemat couldn't have shown up at a better time for us! With the big move, we've needed an easy way to create a Livia-safe eating environment. The placemat has been awesome -- if she wants to eat banana while playing on the floor we just put the mat down and she's good to go. It's easy to wash, so we don't have to worry about tracking germs everywhere. I'm sure it's meant to be used at the table like a civilized person, but you know, you work with what you've got :-)
They have a great selection of colors and characters to put on the mats. From cupcakes to dinosaurs, there is something for every kid. I personally love all of the gender neutral options. Livia definitely is not the pink princess type of gal. As Rob jokes, we're a little closer to Xena Warrior Princess with this one!
There are so many other great products available. I love this wooden puzzle, storage hampers and clocks are all so cute, too! Personalized gifts are particularly nice for expat kids that bounce around a lot. It's a nice way to make a room feel personalized and special when it's potentially full of furniture that feels temporary or not totally theirs. Heck, I felt that way in our partially furnished last apartment!
Now for the fun part...
