Fellowes Bankers Box® SmoothMove™ FastFold Moving & Storage

I received an email from the company Fellowes to see if I was interested in trying out a reviewing their SmoothMove moving and storage boxes. I automatically said yes because I need storage boxes desperately, especially having 2 young children! So much stuff I need to store!

I received the boxes about a few weeks later and was very pleased with them.  Here is some infortmation about Bankers Box® SmoothMove™ FastFold Moving & Storage boxes.

  • No tape required - lid locks into place for secure closure
  • Strong, durable hand holes for comfortable moving and lifting
  • FastFold® quick and easy assembly
  • Easy to break down and store flat until ready for reuse
  • All boxes constructed from strong 32 ECT C-Flute Kraft corrugated board

I LOVE how no tape is required, makes it so much for easier, and especially when you want to take the boxes back out of storage to get one simple thing out of them, no cutting tape and then re-taping!
These boxes are very strong and durable, and very quick to assemble.
When you aren't using them they do fold down flat so they can be put away for easy storage until you want to use them.

These boxes do come in small, medium, and large so they do fit your needs for whatever you need to store.
I also reviewed the SmoothMove Tape dispenser with moving tape. What a great dispenser! It's very heavy duty and not cheap like other brands may be. Very simple to load in the tape and the tape comes out nice and smooth in the dispenser.  Please see the picture at the bottom of page.

Here is the website where you can watch a video about the product and also purchase.
Please use code CAW to receive 10% off plus free shipping! A GREAT deal on these boxes!

Below are some social media links where you can find out additional information, and follow them:

I am very happy with these boxes and recommend them to my readers!

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn™ Learning Home™

When my daughter was a baby I always heard how great this product was. I thought it was too expensive so I really didn't look into it (or look into getting a used one). When my son turned 15 months I saw this at a Consignment shop a town away for a great price and decided to take it. I am so glad I did, my son is nuts over it! It's been 3 months and he plays with it everyday either alone or with his 4 year old sister!

A few great things about this toy:

  • Learn the alphabet with the sing-along radio & other activities
  • Drop balls in rainspout for counting fun and musical reward!
  • Spin house numbers & move dials on clock
  • Lots of opposites to learn—like up & down, on & off, open & close, day & night!
  • Sort shapes & learn colors

  • Sing along with 21 delightful songs, including:
    • Welcome Home song
    • Itsy-Bitsy Spider
    • Doggy in the Window
    • Hickory Dickory Dock
    • Plus songs (with lyrics) for counting, colors, opposites & more!
  • Drop balls down rainspout for musical reward!
  • Enjoy songs & fun phrases on different radio stations
  • 25+ fun sounds & encouraging phrases with activities
  • Introduces new topics as they relate to familiar things in baby’s home.
  • Reinforces learning concepts through delightful music, sounds, songs & activities.
  • Stimulates curiosity & encourages baby to explore.
  • Builds self-confidence & a sense of empowerment as baby masters new skills.
My son loves climbing through the door, and putting the shapes in the door and turning the light on and off.

It requires 3 C batteries which aren't included, and the dimensions of this are Approx. 29" H x 31" W x 23" D.

It goes for about $90 and believe me, if i knew my son was going to play with this like crazy I would have bought it for the $90 a long time ago! Definately worth every penny!

Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Songs Palace

My 4 year old daughter LOVES anything to do with Disney World, especially the princesses. She also loved to play with Little People, so when I found out that Fisher Price made a Little People Princess castle I was very excited! When my daughter saw the commercial she went nuts, so since my christmas shopping was done I asked her grandma to get it for her for christmas! She was beyond thrilled! I also have a 17 month old son and he loves playing with it as much as she does.

This castle does come with a good amount of items. It comes with a Cinderella and a Snow White Little Person. It comes with 2 chairs, a table, and a bed for when the princesses get tired :).  It makes lots of noices as well. You can spin the bottom disk part and that plays music and the princesses can sit in the little attached chairs and look like they are dancing. The door to open the castle also plays music sounds.

You can purchase extra Disney Princess Little People for this castle. Each one talks and sings. Has to be the princess little people though, as the others will not talk or sing.

My kids have had endless hours of fun with this toy. I definately give it 5 stars. You can purchase it at a variety of stores, has it right now for $39.88.
