@MilkUnleashed: The Benefits of Shelf Safe Milk

My kids love milk, but it’s just not an on-the-go option for them. Where we live, we have to drive in order to get anywhere. (The dentist is an hour and a half away. The nearest mall is over 2 hours away. You get the idea.) When we do take a trip, I don’t want them drinking sugary drinks like soda or juice. And since it takes so long to drive to the dentist, I’d like to keep our trips down there to a minimum. 😉

Luckily, there’s another option! Shelf safe milk is real milk. It contains the same proteins and nutrient that refrigerated milk does. There are no additives or preservatives. And the best part? It doesn’t need refrigerated until after you open it! That means you can take your milk on the go with you and enjoy it anytime, anywhere. And since you can get regular or flavored shelf safe milk, you’re sure to make everyone in the family happy – even the pickiest drinker. (Like me!) I must confess, I don’t like milk. (Gasp.) But with the flavored shelf-safe milk, I love the smooth, creamy taste, and I can get the calcium and vitamins that I (and my growing baby!) need.

If I know we have a long drive ahead of us, I’ll throw a couple of shelf safe milk single-serve packages in the freezer the night before. The next morning, I’ll stick them in the diaper bag, and the kids can have milk whenever they’d like. Shelf safe milk is perfect for today’s on the go family.

Shelf safe milk goes through ultra pasteurization and the special Tetra Pak eco-friendly cartons keep milk safe for drinking whenever it’s most convenient. It’s a very safe process, and all it does is adds a convenience factor to the milk that you already love so much.

Because I have such a large family, I like to buy in bulk whenever I can. Shelf safe milk is perfect for buying in bulk. I can store it in the pantry, the basement, or the garage, and we’ll have it when we need it. It doesn’t expire nearly as quickly as refrigerated milk, so I can really stock up. (And I use it for cooking too! The single serving packages are usually just the right amount for whatever I’m making.

The uses for shelf safe milk are endless, and it has become a convenient staple in my house and for my family.

@BobbleBots Moshi Monsters {Ends 4/30}

My kids have been fans of moshimonsters.com for awhile now. The boys have each “adopted” their own monster, and they can’t get enough of the games. So, when I found out about Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters – a way to bring Moshi Monsters to life, I jumped at the chance to review them.

We were sent a Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters Starter Set for our review that included The Ice-Scream Set, Cobblestone Corner, and a Moshling. From the moment they arrived, the kids couldn’t wait to get their hands on them. It was pure torture waiting long enough for me to get the packages opened. 🙂

Once they started playing, I heard sounds of pure delight. The kids were in heaven, and they were all playing together so nicely. They loved watching the monsters shake and move all around the set. They’d squeal every time the monsters would bump into each other, or into something else. It was hysterical.

I will say that the little Moshi Monster figures are quite noisy. Maybe it’s just because I had them in the dining room where there’s no carpet to pad the sound, but this is definitely not a toy to let the kids play with during the baby’s naptime… unless they’re downstairs in the basement.

I did end up sending the toy down to the basement, but that just made it even more fun for the kids. The basement floor is HUGE, so the kids would turn the Moshi Monsters on and just let them go. They would just laugh and laugh over the “antics” of the Bobble Bots.

Each Bobble Bots set/toy came with codes for MoshiMonsters.com – which made the boys VERY happy. They love using the codes for new stuff on MoshiMonsters.com, and I love how excited they get about playing on a site where they make education such a focus.

My kids would give Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters two very enthusiastic thumbs up. They love everything about the toys, and they can’t wait to expand their collection. I would also give the toys 2 thumbs up, I just need to get past the noise level of the toys. I do love that they’re not wind up toys, and they are so easy to use that even my 3 year old can turn them on and let them go. The batteries seem to last a really long time, too, because I swear the kids have played with these both in the house and outside for days on end, and they’re still going strong.
