Gymboree #MadeYouSmile – New styles in time for school!

This is a sponsored post.  Purchasing through our links is not required however when you do, we receive a small amount that supports our site.  


Gymboree Sale On Now!

Gymboree always takes strides to create new and fun clothing for kids, and just recently has re-branded with a new trendy product line for kids, just in time for school!  We have about a month here until school officially starts, so back to school shopping is definitely on the list.  Even as a homeschool mom, I enjoy refreshing my boys’ wardrobe fall as stores bring out fun new fall styles. 

Gymboree Smile Shirt - so adorable

The new line includes fun new graphic t-shirts and accessories, as well as multi-seasonal basics.  Pieces are designed to work together well, being mixed and matched as your kids please.  I just love these cute girl’s shoes!  There is a lot of 80s influence in the new styles, and I just love it!  My boys will love it as well as they are interested lately in 80s music (thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy!)  It’s so fun seeing them interested in something that takes me back to my own childhood. 

And this cardigan and skirt are absolutely adorable!  If I had a little girl, these would definitely be on our Back To School shopping list.  Honestly, I would take one of those sweaters as a staple fall piece for myself if it came in my size! 

One of my favorite features of the new line is how easily the pieces can be mixed and matched together.  If you take a look through the different tops, skirts, jeans, and other pieces, you’ll see that there is so much versatility. This is a great opportunity to let your kids pick their own clothes while not having to worry they’ll be totally mismatched.  My boys love picking out their own clothes – it gives them a sense of independence and makes them smile! 

Soon to be released is also a new “Made You Smile” mobile app with fun features, as well as weekly drawings into the Surprize Surprize Sweepstakes, which has some pretty awesome prizes!  You should be able to either download the app from the Apple Store or the Google Play Store, depending on what kind of phone you use. 

If you are a frequent Gymboree shopper, you will definitely want to make sure you are signed up for Gymboree Rewards!  For every dollar you spend, you’ll earn a point!  Once you accumulate 200 points, you will get a $10 reward.  You will also have exclusive access to offers and shopping events.  Head on over to sign up for Gymboree Rewards!

Gymboree also has an awesome GymBucks program – during earning periods, you can get $25 GymBucks for every $50 spent.  That’s an awesome deal! 

When you sign up for emails, you will get 20% off your next purchase as well.  This is also a great way to make sure you don’t miss out on future sales. 

I can’t wait to head into the store and check out the new line in person and see what my boys pick out!  What are some of your favorite pieces?

Incredibundles: Your new source of baby gifts!


Incredibundles is the only baby gift basket service you need!


It’s coming up on that time of year again – finding the perfect gifts for the special little ones in your life.  Whether it’s the holidays, birthdays, or new additions to the family, gift baskets are always a fun way to give something thoughtful and with enough variety to keep their attention for more than a day.  Enter IncrediBundles!

IncrediBundles sells various bundles of age appropriate gifts with multiple themes.  From diaper bundles to bath bundles, learn-and-grow to sleep time, they’ve got every situation covered!  You can even create your own unique bundle.  We’ve previously reviewed a Book Bundle and our kids absolutely loved it.  Some of the books are still a part of their bedtime routine!


A wide variety of baby gift baskets are available for you to choose from or even create your own unique box!


And perhaps the best part is that, as any parent (or cat owner) knows, the box often gets as much attention as the contents.  The box we received was a larger box, very sturdy, with snaps to hold everything in place.  When you need to store it away, you can unsnap the box apart and fold it flat.  Then when you need to use it, snap it back together!  It has stood up to our kids much longer than a typical cardboard box, and is still in their bedroom holding toys.  Plus it’s adorable with a decorative alphabet printed along the inside and outside of the box.  Making the box a part of the gift just makes it all the more special.

Just look how adorable these storage boxes are!


Make sure to keep IncrediBundles in mind when gift shopping this year.  You can even order a subscription to deliver age appropriate boxes at regular intervals, giving gifts that continuously grow and develop with your little ones to keep them stimulated!

Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm – fun for siblings!

This post was sponsored by VTech®, however all opinions are honest and our own.  Prior to this product, we have purchased several VTech toys without sponsored influence and have always been satisfied with the quality and entertainment provided.  


My kids love the SmartPoint sets by VTech - especially the new Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm!


Two years ago my little boys and I were introduced to the Go! Go! Smart Wheels toys by VTech…and they have loved them ever since!  We started out with one set from grandma and added to it on special occasions.  VTech has expanded the Go! Go! Smart toys to include Animals and Friends.  Much to my approval, they can all be connected to create a big fun world of fun!


My kids still love playing with their VTech toys a couple years after getting them at Christmas.  I definitely recommend them!


One of the newest sets, the Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm is educational, interactive, and a must for your little ones this holiday season.  The recommended age for this set is 1-5 years.  My boys are almost 3 and 4 1/2 and on the upper end of the age range, but they still enjoy playing with the set, a little more than they like to admit. :)

As a parent, one of my pet peeves of a toy is hearing the same sound over and over.  When the kids roll the SmartPoint animals down the tracks, the SmartPoint locations trigger these sounds, which of course they love to do over and over.  This particular set has 7 SmartPoint locations so VTech was able to incorporate over 100 songs, melodies, and phrases in the Grow & Learn Farm.  Your ears will never grow too tired of the same sound.  Thank you VTech!

My littlest was able to figure out how to put the roads together on our original set when he was about a year old.  The pieces fit together easily to create whatever arrangement you want (especially if you have other sets to combine roads!)  The pieces are bright and colorful and the whole set is very interactive.  As you roll the SmartPoint rooster around the farm, he will play a variety of sounds, music, and phrases.  Through these, your child will be encouraged to grow mentally and reach important developmental milestones.


VTech really outdid themselves with the variety of sounds, songs, and phrases by the "Go! Go! Smart" line of toys. My kids love them!


My oldest really liked the growing carrots and the slide while my littlest had the most fun playing with the rooster adding in our old set.  I have to say that it is always great to find a toy that they can enjoy at both their ages and I highly recommend adding this to your gift shopping list for Christmas!


The Smart Point toys are a perfect addition to your child's Christmas wishlist as they are educational and provide hours of fun!


The only thing you may be discouraged by at first is the price of the additional SmartPoint animals, vehicles, and people.  But when you compare them to action figures and dolls, the price really isn’t that bad.  These contain so much interaction, hours of fun, and can be manipulated and played with differently every time.  There’s not much more you can ask for in a toy!  Plus you can use additional animals, friends, and vehicles as rewards for good behavior, milestones, and more.  What fun!
