Bugalug's Rocking Fashion Accessories For Boys!

8:01 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy






In a previous post, I shared with everyone the cool products that Bugalug has for girls!  Well I am pleased to help spread the word about some of their new Rocking Fashion Accessories for boys!  While Kyron is just a little too small to use these products ( they are aimed at the 1-6 year old market.), Becky and I are so excited to use them.  They look so cool and I know from our friends that the belts are super practical for toddlers!   There's no end to the number of cute accessories for little girls - barrettes, headbands, belts, pony loops, jewellery ... day after day, we see their adorable faces light up as they don their favourite accessory that makes them feel "just right." But what about our little dudes? Bugalug, first to the market to make adorable non-slip clips, headbands, pony loops, soother clips and more, has recently launched its new line of little boy Cinch Belts and Cool Cuffs.

 
Finally an accessory that is as cool as your little man! Made with super-soft recycled ultra suede and designed with little boys in mind, boys can let the world know that they can accessorize with the best of them! Cool Cuffs come in three sizes to fit boys from infant to six years and come in four fun – and very “boyish” styles: checkers, flames, skulls and caution. They can also be paired with Bugalug’s new Cinch belts. So go ahead, Little Man – rock out! Cool Cuffs are available for $10.00. Toddler’s and pre-schooler’s tiny middles make it hard to find the exact size pants that stay up just right. Bugalug’s new innovative Cinch Belts put the stop on the slip and slide pant waist. The Cinch Belts were designed with both parent and child in mind. The belts include an elastic, which helps to keep pants up while still keeping the pants comfortable and flexible. The elastic also allows the little one the ability to pull their pants on and off without having to struggle with a traditional belt. All belts are reversible and sport Bugalug’s exclusive unique designs. The suggested retail price for Cinch Belts is $18.00.

Nifty Knees Review and Giveaway! Did they help Kyron Crawl?

8:32 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy



 
  When I first heard about the Funky Leg Warmers that Nifty Knees sold, I was a little apprehensive about trying some with Kyron.  My first impressions where "leg warmers....for a boy?" and my mind flashed to the 1980's jazzercise classes I used to walk by at Southland Leisure Centre as a kid!  After receiving a pair from Nifty Knees to try and review, I now admit that I had the wrong impression!

  Nifty Knees has an impressive collection of products for sale on their website ( http://niftyknees.com/shop/) including cool selections for both boys and girls!  I think that their seasonal selections, including the Halloween onesies are pretty cute also!  I was fortunate enough to be able to try a baby Goth Drool Bandanna ( so cool!) and a pair of  boys Contrast Stripe Leg Warmers for Kyron!  The leg warmers were amazingly easy to put on and have kept Kyron's legs warm when he is in a onesie!  It allows him to actually wear his onesie's at home, without Becky worrying about his legs getting cold!

 I have attached some pictures of Kyron wearing his Nifty Knee Leg Warmers below!






















 Also, Kyron has been trying to crawl for a few weeks now, but has been stuck in the "creeping" stage.  Last night he was able to put a full on knee crawl together when he was wearing the Nifty Knee Leg Warmers!  Coincidence?  Watch the video and decide for yourself!




Hmmmm.......

As mentioned, the products offered by Nifty Knees are awesome!  Head over to their website and have a look for yourself!  They have offered a 15% discount to my readers on all purchases until December 1, 2010.  Just enter the coupon code cdreview to get your discount online!

Minute Maid Canada's $1,000 Daily Giveaway And Breakfast Club Sponsorship!

8:53 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy



In honour of Minute Maid's 60th anniversary, they are having a pretty cool contest promotion that I wanted to share with everyone!  Not that a $1000 daily prize is not important, but I am more impressed by the fact that they will donate sixty cents to Breakfast Clubs of Canada every time someone plays the free game!


Celebrating its 60th year as a key part of Canadians’ breakfast, Minute Maid® wants to bring back the classic birthday – showcasing that ‘keeping it simple’ can be rewarding for both kids and parents. Whether it’s making a one-of-a-kind birthday cake or inspiring older kids to give back with a donation to a local charity, the options are endless. Celebrating 60 years young, Minute Maid® has also planned a special donation to Breakfast Clubs of Canada. But, first they need your help.


Minute Maid® is kicking off its 60 day birthday celebration by giving Canadians from coast to
coast a chance to win* a daily cash prize of $1,000 or a grand prize of $25,000.

The best part?

Each time someone logs onto www.minutemaid.ca and plays a fun birthday game for a chance to win*, Minute Maid® will make a donation to Breakfast Clubs of Canada (up to $60,000**) to help fund breakfast programs in schools across the country. And the benefits are large. A healthy breakfast that includes one serving of orange juice provides 100 per cent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C and two complete fruit servings as outlined in Canada’s Food Guide. And by providing a balanced meal, these programs have renewed children’s interest and attention in school, improved social skills and reduced bullying. Teachers also report at least 30 minutes more effective instruction time per day when breakfast programs have become a part of their schools. 

Head on over to http://www.minutemaid.ca/ and enter!  If you do not win at least you will have helped to make a donation!

Kyron's First Time Playing Catch!

9:38 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  We had the greatest laugh while on holiday's last week when we discovered that our 8 month old son discovered that he likes to play "catch"!  He loves to throw the ball back and forth, which is sure to make his baseball fanatic Uncles Cory and Blake happy!

 Here is a video of his first time throwing...I think he is a natural!



I smile every time I see this!

Turbo Dogs Volume 1 DVD Review and Giveaway!

6:30 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy




   In anticipation of the September 14, 2010 DVD Release of Turbo Dogs Volume 1, I am fortunate enough to host a giveaway of this cool CBC Kids show!  I have watched this show a few times with Kyron and he loves the motion and music!  It really is an entertaining show and the animation is awesome.

 Synopsis:

 Dash, Mags, GT, Strut, Stinkbert and Clutch are the town's Turbo Dogs and although they may be fierce competitors on the track and let's face it, celebrities in the town of Racerville, they always (well almost always) try to remember that winning isn't everything. While kids are sure to get caught up in the action-packed storylines and non-stop antics, an emphasis on team work will also see that they zoom away with some rules for the road.


More info about the show...

• Adapted from the picture book 'Racer Dogs' by Bob Kolar

• Created by the producers of Veggie Tales and 3-2-1 Penguin

• Airs on CBC mornings Monday to Friday at 7:15am and 11:45am

Turbo Dogs is the winner of many awards including:

• 2009 Parents Choice Award

• Dove Family Seal of Approval (5/5)

• 2009 Turbo Dogs (Strut's Trick/A Star Turn) has been awarded a KIDS FIRST! endorsement by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media


Here is a clip of the show!

Kyron Loves His Baby Num Num Cookies!

7:00 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  We gave Kyron his first baby cookie last month ( rice cookie...not Chocolate Chip!) and he loves them.  Becky got a video of him trying it for the first time and he loves them!  He must get his love of cookie snacks from his old dad, as I am a cookie fiend! 

 




This video was taken  a few weeks ago and things have changed since the first try.  He now devours these cracker things in less than 60 seconds. Even faster when he tries to share them with our dogs!

Kyron's Calgary Hail Storm Adventure

7:00 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy


 The weather in Calgary during the summer is so unpredictible that you really have to plan for every scenario.  This summer saw Calgary get hit with more than its fair share of hail storms, some of which were very intense.  It is not unusual to have a beatiful summer afternoon interrupted by a fifteen minutes of nasty pea/golf ball sized hail, usually without notice.

 One hail storm in July is turning out to be the biggest insurance disaster in Calgary's history.  The golf ball sized hail that hit the city that afternoon has caused more than $400 Million in property damage.  Yikes.

Here is a video of Kyron checking out the hail as it piles up on the deck in mid-August.  The house was getting pelted just before I took the video and he was unsure as to what was happening.  He kept looking around the ceiling trying to figure it all out.  ( It looks like snow, but its really pea sized hail balls!)

Baby Kyron Started Creeping! ( Not Crawling)

9:08 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  My little man Kyron is growing like crazy!  He just started doing the "Creeping" movements....so I guess a full fledged Crawling will not be far away!  Guess who is going baby gate shopping this weekend?

The "creeping" movements are so funny to watch.  It looks like he is in the Army doing basic training on an obstacle course!  At 7 months old, its cute to see him be able to move around so independently.

Here is a video that we took last week when he first started doing this.  He is actually getting better every day! 





 I wonder what the average age that babies begin crawling at?  Feel free to leave a comment to let me know your thoughts or when your kids started?
