In October I told you about Bella Sara, a the most successful trading card product ever developed for girls, which features horse-themed fantasy cards that offer positive, inspirational messages. This month, Bella Sara continues to bring joy and excitement into its delightful world of horses with the introduction of Bella Sara Miniatures and Bella Sara Treasures.
Bella Sara Miniatures are velvety soft horse figurines which fit in the palm of your hand. Each miniature pack comes with one horse figurine, a bonus code that will reveal an animated horse statue for your cottage, and a full-color checklist.
Bella Sara Treasures is the eighth series in the popular Bella Sara trading card line. The series features the inspirational treasures that the horses from Bella Sara’s land of North of North cherish and protect. Each horse has her own unique treasure to share. You can discover rare jewels, amazing natural wonders, historical artifacts and fantastic magical items.
You can see from this picture how excited The Little Write Gal was to receive the latest products from Bella Sara. She loves playing with the miniature horses in person and online at www.bellasara.com. The online world of Bella Sara boasts more than 4.3 million registered users and offers interactive stables, games, puzzles, coloring pages, storybooks and customizable cottages. As a Mom I like knowing there are products and Web sites out there that are good for our kids.

The Little Write Gal was over the moon at the latest product we received for review from Team Mom, the debut of Baby Bella trading cards from Bella Sara. If you haven’t heard about Bella Sara yet, this is the most successful trading card product ever developed for girls, selling more than 55 million cards since the game’s introduction two years ago. The cards are purchased in packs of seven and each one features positive, inspirational messages. They include a unique code that activates a virtual version of the horse featured on the card which you can then interact with on the Bella Sara Web site. Bella Sara’s newest cards feature Baby Bella, the babies of the horses in the Bella Sara family. On November 6th, Bella Sara is kicking off a 10-day celebration where kids can qualify for daily prizes, read stories, get access to special codes, and more.
Since its debut, Bella Sara has received numerous awards including the “Seal of Approval” from the National Parenting Center and the “Toy of the Year” from Creative Child magazine, among others. As a mom I love these products because they promote strong family values and feature inspirational messages and imagination-building game play designed to support girls’ development. The Little Write Gal loves them because she says they “ROCK” and that they are “way more girly girl than Webkinz,” which also has a trading card line. I would have posted a picture of the Little Write Gal and her cards but she was so excited she took them over to her best friend Katie’s house and then left them over there so you will have to settle with a picture from Bella Sara for now.
These cards are adorable and make great stocking stuffers at just $2.99 per pack. They are available at the major retailers including Target, Toys “R” Us, Wal-Mart, and Barnes & Noble. Be sure and get your girl some of these cute cards soon! Thanks Team Mom.
The latest products I have received from Team Mom for review are the Bath Blizzard and the Aquadoodle Draw ‘N Doodle both from Spin Master. Your child will want both of these on his or her Christmas list! The Little Write Gal anxiously awaits any deliveries from Team Mom and this one was no exception. She tore into the Bath Blizzard as soon as it arrived. This little machine hangs securely on the side of your bathtub via suction cups and with the turn of a knob, a waterfall of bubbles comes tumbling into the water. The box says “Ages 3+” but trust me that your child of any age will just LOVE this product. The Bath Blizzard is from Spin Master’s Kid Kleen line of toys, an exciting new line of kids’ bath activity toys that are safe, non toxic, hypoallergenic, and tears free. What I like about Kid Kleen is that all of their products have been tested and approved by ophthalmologists and pediatricians. Your kid’s bath will never run out of bubbles using the Bath Blizzard! I just might have to try this out for myself! I wanted to take a picture of the Little Write Gal covered up to her neck in these bubbles but Miss Priss informed me that she was a “Junior Pre-teen” now that she just turned 8, and I was not allowed to take her picture in the bathtub even if it was from the neck up LOL! “Junior Pre-teen”……where do the kids come up with this stuff??
The next product we received was the Aquadoodle Draw N’ Doodle Mat. The Little Write Gal actually got this from Santa when she was 3 and has used it often since then. She loves to draw in the Living Room but since our carpet is light grey I have always confined her the kitchen for her artwork. With the Aquadoodle there is absolutely no mess because all you do is add water to the Aqua Pen that comes with the mat and your child can draw adorable pictures MESS FREE that magically appear on the doodle mat. The mat is durable and reusable for hours and hours of no-mess fun!
Both of these products are available at major toy retailers. The suggested price of the Bath Blizzard is $19.99 and the Auqadoodle is $24.99. You can also order them online from Amazon and eToys.
Thanks Team Mom for more great products! Your kids will not be disappointed when opening up either of these two things on Christmas morning.
I am so excited to have been chosen to do product reviews by Team Mom. This month’s review is of a Sesame Street Building Set. The one I received just happens to be my favorite Sesame Street character ever – Oscar the Grouch! Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, has teamed with K’NEX, an international leader in the construction toy industry, to create the first collection of Sesame Street-themed building sets for preschoolers, ages 2 to 5. This creative building set includes fun stickers and an educational “Play & Learn” activity sheet for parent & child to do together – build & learn about vehicles with Oscar! When playtime is over, store the parts in the canister for a quick and easy clean up. Includes 14 pieces, including KID K’NEX rods, connectors and blocks plus unique parts like specially-designed character hands, eyes and even Oscar’s pet worm Slimey! Check out all of the fun Sesame Street Building Sets available here.
These adorable sets would make a great Christmas gift for a child you love!
