Classic Toys Like Baby Dolls Are a Cherished Part of Childhood-#Giveaway #Corolle


If you follow Mommy Ramblings you know we love Corolle Dolls! Corolle has been a premium doll brand with dolls designed in France for over 30 years.

Every Corolle doll is designed with great care, love and affection because Corolle knows that a doll is more than a toy; it is a cherished part of childhood:  A doll encourages a child to explore different roles through caring for and sharing hopes, dreams and experiences with an always-understanding friend and playmate.

In the past we have introduced you to several dolls in their amazing line as well as had some very popular giveaways! I am so excited to share Lia Interactive Baby Doll and Goodnight My Mini Calin.

Lia Interactive Baby Doll

Let’s take a look at Lia first. Lia is an extra sweet, large interactive My Classique Corolle doll, who, with a simple touch, acts like a real baby. She can speak 13 phrases and sounds in 4 different languages (English, Italian, French and Spanish).

She has a face, arms and legs made of soft to the touch vinyl that has the trademark delicate vanilla scent Corolle is known for.

She has a cloth body and wears leggings with a long-sleeve T-shirt and sweet headband. She has sleep close eyes. She comes with a bottle, spoon, potty and 3 bracelets that change the language she speaks. Lia can wear any of the 17 inch doll clothing and accessories in the My Classique Corolle Collection. She is made for ages 3 and up.

You can see exactly how she works in my video review below:

Good Night My Mini Calin

Good Night My Mini Calin is such a precious set! I remember how I loved little dolls like this as a child that had accessories and clothing. They were so fun because you could bring them anywhere with you.

The Good Night My Mini Calin gift set includes an 8 inch mini doll, a pair of pajamas and a sleeper – perfect to make up stories and replay the bedtime ritual. This Little doll has a head and limbs made of the incredibly soft, delicately scented vanilla. These gift sets are designed for ages 18 months and older.

For six seasons, The Wonder Years captured the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America in the late 1960’s, as seen through the life and times of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage). Audiences eagerly followed his evolution as a typical awkward teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight.

From his first kiss with Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) to his friendship with Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano) and the ups and downs of the Arnold family, fans shared in laughter, love, and loss, but above all, wonder. This 22-DVD set contains all 115 episodes from the six seasons of this landmark series that aired from 1988 to 1993. Included in this specially priced slipcase set are complete show notes with episode synopses, cast member reflections, “Current Events,” and more plus nearly 12 hours of bonus material, as well as an astounding soundtrack of over 300 classic period songs as they were featured in the original broadcasts featuring such artists as: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, and of course, Joe Cocker’s unforgettable theme.

BONUS FEATURES 

  • Highlights from the first cast reunion in 16 years
  • Roundtable discussions with Danica McKellar, Fred Savage, and Josh Saviano
  • 6 newly produced featurettes
  • Farewell set tour
  • One-hour ABC broadcast of the series finale
  • 1 TV Guide
  • Exclusive interviews with the show’s creators and cast including Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Josh Saviano, Alley Mills, Dan Lauria, Olivia d’Abo, Jason Hervey, and more!

ABOUT THE WONDER YEARS 

The Wonder Years debuted in 1988 following ABC’s broadcast of Super Bowl XXII, and the affectionate look at growing up in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s in suburban America was unlike anything else on television. It was 1968 — the year of Nixon, space walks, Mod Squad, and Vietnam. Enter Kevin Arnold, a sixth grader at Kennedy Junior High School. Set against the suburban backdrop of Anytown, USA, Kevin sought to minimize his teenage angst while dealing with an older, noogie-happy brother Wayne (Jason Hervey), a rebellious sister, Karen (Olivia d’Abo), distant, workaholic father, Jack (Dan Lauria) and doting housewife mother, Norma (Alley Mills). Add to the mix Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano), his nerdy, allergy-riddled best friend, a potential love interest in winsome girl-next-door Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) and narration by an older, wiser, wittier Kevin (voiced by Daniel Stern) to add perspective to the nostalgia, and you have the perfect recipe for TV greatness.

For the next six seasons, America tuned in to follow Kevin’s exploits, as he navigated adolescence in the most memorable of ways. From 1988 to 1993, The Wonder Years was one of the most popular shows on TV, achieving a spot in the Nielsen Top 30 for four of its six seasons. And the critical accolades and awards would follow: after only a scant six episodes, the show captured an Emmy® for “Best Comedy Series;” and, at the age of 13, Fred Savage would become the youngest actor ever nominated as “Outstanding Lead Actor for a Comedy Series.” The series would also go on to win 24 awards (and be nominated for 70 more), including multiple Emmy® Awards, a Golden Globe® and, in 1989, a Peabody® Award for pushing the boundaries of the sitcom format and using new modes of storytelling. Additionally, in 1997, “My Father’s Office” was ranked #29 on TV Guide’s “100 Greatest Episodes of All Time” and in the 2009 list, the pilot episode was ranked #43. Suffice it to say, The Wonder Years was one of the most critically lauded sitcoms of the late 80s and early 90s.

Discover A Safer Baby Wipe & Enter To Win 1 of 5 Babies “R” Us Gift Cards!!! #WaterWipesBRU

“This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”

water wipes 1

Anyone that know me, knows that I try to live as naturally as possible. I do not use harmful pesticides in my yard or garden, do not use toxic cleaners or detergents in my home and try to find more natural ways to do most everything. I truly believe the amount of harmful chemicals in our everyday products are the reason cancer, infertility, autism, miscarriage and Alzheimer’s rates have risen so dramatically. As the mother of a cancer survivor getting rid of toxic products is of paramount importance to me.

I really have an issue with chemicals in baby and children’s products, so I have replaced the ones we use with non-toxic options. Baby wipes are something most parents use every day with little ones and did you know that most are filled with dangerous chemicals? They are, and so are hand and face wipes and towelettes.

As a mother of 5 and with my youngest child having a dirty face or hands about 100 times through the day, I know that baby wipes are useful way beyond the diaper stage. I keep baby wipes on me at all times. Seriously they are in my car, in my purse, in my tote bag, in the house and they come on vacation. I would never travel without them. They are so handy for so many little emergencies we parents face on a daily basis.

There is no questions that I need baby wipes, it is just the toxic chemicals in them that I don’t condone. Short of making my own, I was stuck. That is why I was so glad to find WaterWipes when shopping at my local Babies “R” Us recently. WaterWipes are a thick, durable wipe that is great for diaper changes, hands and faces. Best of all WaterWipes contain only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract.

I picked up a couple of he 60-count resealable packs and have to say, I am very impressed. They work great and I just put them through the paces on our recent vacation. Since they are in soft resealable packs they are easy for me to pop in a tote, my purse, backpack or beach bag.

waterwipes

With eating in the car, hiking, going to the beach, hanging around the pool and in our hotel they got a workout and worked perfectly. They are gentle and effective, do the job I need them to and I don’t worry about spreading nasty chemicals all over my kids. WaterWipes are a safer, natural option and one we will be using from now on.

Love, Legacy, Family and Faith is woven within My Mother’s Quilts.-Win A Quilt!

Today is my mother’s birthday and she is celebrating in Heaven. Loss and grief are hard, the loss of a mother is profound. The other weekend I was talking with a friend about loss. The loss of our mothers. I told her about the way my mother died a few days after having a massive brain stem stroke. I spoke about the suddenness of it all and how my life changed forever with her passing.   I told her there were so many things I still needed to ask her and so many questions I have that only she knows the answers to. She told me that it really was best she went that way for her but it is hard on those left behind. She is right. My mother and I were very close and every day I think of things that I want to ask her, a recipe, a memory, a question about something we did and yet I can’t.

Ramona Richard’s book, My Mother’s Quilts is about her mother who was a master quilter. Quilting was her mother’s passion and the quilts all had a story. Ramona’s mom did not die unexpectedly and she was able to tell her daughter that she wanted the quilt she made with her mother’s handkerchiefs on her coffin instead of flowers. She was able to share the stories behind the quilts and now Ramona is passing them on in this book. This book is made up of the stories of the quilts and a matching devotion that shares the message of God’s grace and faithfulness. Every chapter begins with a Bible verse and ends with a prayer starter. The lessons of the quilts are applicable to anyone’s life. There are fundamental lessons of honoring the lives of those that have gone before us, accepting the flaws in the people we love, accepting one another and so many more.

My Mother's Quilt Book

At the end of the book Ramona shares that she is finishing a quilt that her mother worked on until her eyesight and stamina started to wane a couple of years before her death. She found the bow tie quilt in a white sack on the top of her mother’s closet. The quilt was almost finished, it just need the last few squares to be quilted and the binding attached. Ramona sat with the quilt and knew she wanted it finished. Her first thoughts were to ask someone to finish it but then she realized that she needed to do that.

Ramona is not a quilter but she said quilting is in her blood and this is her mother. She thought that we may be quick to let other people do the work we need to, teach our children about life and faith, take care of loved ones and volunteering where we’re needed. Scripture reminds us that we won’t be judged on the earthly things we accomplish. Instead, God looks at our heart and how we lived our beliefs. So while Ramona’s stitches are not as tiny or as straight as her mother’s, finishing the quilt is her way of saying,  “You ran a great race. Thank you, Mom. I’ll take it from here.” To learn more about Ramona visit her website.

The last prayer starter asks the Lord to help us remember that one of the best ways we can honor those that came before us is to continue sharing all that they have given to us. Amen

Win A Quilt Contest!

Win one of the quilts featured in #MyMothersQuilts by Ramona Richards. Also up for grabs: loads of other prizes including quilting hand warmers, coloring books, and 25 signed copies of Ramona’s book. Winners will be emailed after the contest ends on June 30, 2016. Click the image to enter!

Annie In Theaters December 19th!!! Enter Our Giveaway To Win An Annie Prize Pack!!!

Annie LogoI remember seeing Annie in the theater when I was a kid and now it is on the big screen again starting December 19th with a few updates.  Annie has the same hard knock life but she does not have her signature red hair.  Annie is a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.

Take a look at the movie trailer and clip below and you can also get the Family Study Guide HERE and resources for Educators and Librarians HERE. Visit the Annie Movie Website To See More.
