Stay Connected with The Motorola Talkabout 2 Way Radio Sets #Giveaway

Do you love staying active with your family? I know we do, we love traveling, hiking, biking and setting off on adventures together. We also want to make sure that we take precautions to keep everyone safe.

That means proper helmets for biking, the right type of hiking shoes, water bottles to keep us all hydrated, safe sunscreen and more. When thinking about safety gear, we cannot dismiss the need for a way to keep us all connected and to receive important weather alerts.

That is why we love our Motorola Talkabout T260 two-way radios. We have the three radio set, but they also have a two radio set. The set has everything we need, it comes complete with belt clips, NiMH rechargeable batteries, Y cable charging adaptor with dual micro-USB connectors to charge 2 radios and a single micro-USB connector to charge a single radio.

I like that I can walk around the lake we live on which is over one mile around, and at any point check in with my husband or family at home. The connection is clear as a bell and that says a lot because we live in the mountains and get sketchy cell service.  Having a radio with a clear connection makes me and my husband feel better when I am out walking alone.

Our kids love using them too! They can communicate from the dock or boat up to the house or use them when they are playing around our property to contact each other. They are easy to operate, lightweight, compact and durable. The radios have essential features like NOAA weather channel and alerts as well as iVOX/VOX hands-free communication making it easy to stay in touch no matter your location or situation.

They cover a long-range of up to 25 miles which really makes me happy. If we were ever separated on a hiking or cycling trip, the long-range gives me the peace of mind that I would be able to contact a member of our family.

You can check out our unboxing and review video below:


Know the Weather In Advance
Keep updated with real-time weather conditions by turning on one of 11 weather channels or initiating weather alerts. NOAA radio service may not be available in all areas. Check with your local weather office for frequency and details, or visit www.weather.gov/nwr (Canada: www.msc.ec.gc.ca/msb/weatheradio).

Be Hands-free
With iVOX/VOX acting like a speakerphone and allowing hands-free communication, you can keep on moving without stopping to answer a call.

22 Channels Each with 121 Privacy Codes
With 22 channels and 121 privacy codes, totaling 2,662 combinations, it’s easy to find an available channel.

Compatible with Any Radio
You can communicate with other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand by being on the same channel and privacy code.

Power Through Your Adventures
There are two ways to power your Talkabout T260 radio: use the included NiMH rechargeable batteries for up to 12 hours or use 3 AA batteries for up to 29 hours. To recharge the NiMH batteries, choose from one of three ways: connect it to your vehicle adaptor or your computer, or plug the micro-USB cable into an outlet.

20 Call Tones
A call tone is what people calling you can hear instead of the normal default ring. It grabs the attention of your family and friends before you start speaking.

Eco Smart
Most of the energy wasted when using a mobile device occurs during the charge. This radio consumes less power during its idle condition.

Quickly Find a Channel
Use the scanning feature to see which channels are currently in use.

Low Battery Alert
Low battery alert reminds you when batteries are running low.

Keypad Lock
The keypad lock prevents your personalized settings from being inadvertently changed.

T260 Packaging Includes:

• 2 radios
• 2 belt clips
• 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries
• 1 Y cable adaptor with dual micro-USB connectors
• 1 user guide

Safe and Stylish Products Designed To Give Babies The Best Start With Bonus Giveaway!

MAM pacifiers have been around a long time. I remember way back using one with my oldest when they were a relatively new company. They have continued to grow and evolve over the years into a trusted and very recommended pacifier line by moms and health care professionals alike. I saw the most adorable Rock and Roll pacifiers from MAM and they come in value packs too! In a value pack you get 2 pacifiers and a pacifier holder all in a central theme. Check out the Rock and Roll Pacifier Value Packs for Boys and Girls:

MAM Boy Rock and Roll Value Pack Pacifier

MAM Girls Rock an Roll Set

The key to MAM’s success is design. It’s unique because it satisfies both the highest stylistic demands that are placed on products and the functional requirements that ensure babies get the best start in life. And the way that MAM develops every single one of its products is also unique: it engages in an international working dialogue spanning different disciplines with designers, medical experts, scientists, technology specialists and parents. 

I just love the MAM pacifiers. They are big on the cuteness factor but they are so much more than that. They are a pacifier that is anatomically correct, adapting to the baby’s mouth so the pacifier is always in the proper position. A curved shield, big air holes and an innovative inside surface all comfort baby and help prevent skin irritation. All MAM pacifiers also feature a soft silicone nipple that feels more like mom and an anti-slip surface that helps keep the pacifier in baby’s mouth. MAM has pacifiers perfect for newborns right through to sizes for older babies. MAM makes more than pacifiers, check out their Bottles, Sippy Cups, Nipples and Accessories HERE! They also have Oral Care Products and Teethers!

What’s more, the company is firmly committed to research and raising awareness to promote good health for babies – for example on behalf of the global group of researchers working to reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Kyocera Vertical, Double Edge Peeler Review & Giveaway

Kyocera double edge peeler

Kyocera Advanced Ceramics Vertical Peeler is a great peeler for any size hand.  The ergonomic handle fits comfortably and securely whether your hands are small or large or left or right-handed.


Peeler 1

The handle allows you to peel in a vertical style.  Easy care, just pop the peeler in the dishwasher.  The peeler’s vertical blade is made from advanced ceramic and it is super sharp and stays that way 10 times longer than steel blades. It is so easy to peel vegetables because the optimal cutting angle just glides right through foods effortlessly.  The blade will not rust or corrode ever! The ceramic blade also will not brown foods or transfer a metallic taste or smell.

Peeler 2

My husband tried this peeler out and loves it.  So easy to peel any type of fruit or vegetable and the ceramic blade is so much cleaner and more sanitary than metal.  The sharp red color makes it easy to locate the peeler in a drawer.  If you are in the market for a new peeler, do yourself a favor and check out the Vertical, Double Edge Peeler from Kyocera Advanced Ceramics.
