Dino Lingo

Dino Lingo was received as a complimentary part of the Mom VoxBox from Influenster for review. Dino Lingo is a language program designed for young children to learn common words and phrases in a foreign language. They currently have over 20 languages to choose from. I sampled a Korean lesson on their website at www.dinolingo.com. It started with very upbeat music and fun cartoon animals and dinosaurs. It then gave me words in print as well as spoken for different animals which were shown in videos. It was very colorful and lively and definitely designed to keep a child's attention. The program is made up of five DVDs, 100 flash cards, posters, and a parent's guide. The program is intended for children ages 2-7 and will teach basic phrases and the names of everyday objects. It provides a perfect start to learning a second language. 

Impress Press On Manicure

I received a complimentary set of Impress Press On Manicure nails from Influenster's Mom VoxBox. With Broadway nails Impress Press On Manicure you can do your own manicure in seconds. They say you can "simply peel off, press on, and you're done" and it really is that easy. You don't have to wait for your nails to dry and they do look quite professional on your nails. They claim to last up to a week and they did last well for me. There are 36 colors and patterns to choose from. Their animal prints are adorable. Their website is www.impressmanicure.com and they have an app on the site that lets you try out the different colors and patterns. Check it out!

Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies

I received a "Mom VoxBox" from Influenster with several items to test and review. One of the items I received was a Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie. This cookie is made with whole grain Quaker oats and is a good source of fiber. The cookie had a very pleasant texture, just soft enough without being cakey. The flavor was excellent. The size was great for a snack and sells for $2.69 in a box of six.

I think for convenience this is a great item for snacking on occasionally. At 6 grams of fat, it's a little high in fat to eat on a regular basis for me, but it was definitely a yummy 'once in a while" treat.
