Off Topic, But I Had To Share

Yes, this is completely off topic, no pretty rooms to look at and no gorgeous furniture to ooo or aaah over, however, I just had to share. Check out the adorable, smiling mug on the box below and tell me if that cutie patootie looks at all familiar.

Yep, if you thought it looks like the equally delicious grinning, now 6-year-old below, bingo, you're right! That's my sweet boy! You've no idea what manner of bribery went into getting this sometimes shy child to hold that letter A and say cheese, but he did it and we couldn't be more proud!

Clearly I'm a proud mama, but now that I have your attention, let's talk a sec about the great stuff in the box. This line of learning products is from Brainy Baby and I can tell you unequivocally, first hand, that these are some great educational, entertaining and above all, fun DVDs, CDs, books, games, & toys. You name it, they have it! My boys love the items below, in particular. We own all of these and just for the record, I am in no way getting paid to promote Brainy Baby products, I just happen to be a mama with three kiddos who's seen and enjoyed these first hand, and thought you would love them for your brood, as well.

I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this DVD. Ok, perhaps a million and one, and every single time I can't help but sing along to the catchy tunes. Shhh, don't tell him, or he'll kill me, but even the almost 12-year-old sings along too. ;0)

These board books are especially fantastic and a new favorite. They are large, colorful, and great for reviewing ABCs, 123s, Shapes and Colors. I love the fresh, fun graphics that make learning a breeze.

Another great new product that is a perfect companion to the books above, these flashcards are sturdy, colorful, with great eye-catching graphics. We use them regularly and the youngest thinks we're playing a game.

Now if you're looking for a fabulous gift for the child that has everything, I bet they don't have this. A personalized CD featuring everyone's favorite characters who'll actually sing and speak your child's name over 80 times! Definitely a one-of-a-kind, not to be forgotten, gift.

Now this one is new-to-me, but as soon as I saw it I knew my nephews would go bonkers for the Baby Bidou MP3 player. That's right, you heard me, an MP3 player for the crib set. No more reaching for mama and daddy's iPhone or iPod. Now the smallest members of the family can mix their own tunes on this fantastic music player that you can load with all your little one's favorites, or better yet, record your own sweet voice to lull baby to sleep. Plus, check out the adorable "cover" below. Sweet tunes and a sweeter still cuddly pal will surely leave baby with sweet dreams.

So, like I said, full disclosure, I am in no way getting paid to promote any of these educational products and do not make any money off the sale thereof. We just happen to enjoy many of them. As a treat for Head Over Heels readers, The Brainy Baby Company has graciously offered a discount that HOH readers can use until the end of August for 30% off your complete order from the Brainy Baby site, excluding clearance items. That's right, 30% off the wonderful books, DVDs, flashcards, and even the fun personalized CDs. Just use code JOSH30 at check out and you'll enjoy this special savings. I hope you enjoy your Brainy goods.

And for the record, I bought the brainy flashcards when Ike turned one. Ummmm, maybe a bit too early. He ate them.

(But he can count to 10 now!)
