- e-Safari email adventures that trek to the best animal sites on the web
It’s been over 30 years since John Wexo hatched the idea for Zoobooks while standing in front of a primate enclosure at the zoo. His idea was simple: to create a colorful, concise, informative series of animal books to share with children that could be purchased at zoos through vending machines. The vending machine gave way to subscription sales, and Zoobooks was soon being shipped to hundreds of thousands of subscribers around the world. To meet the clamoring demand of librarians, the first hardcover editions of Zoobooks were produced in 1983.
Now you can find Zoobooks, Zootles and Zoobies in homes, schools and libraries around the world. You can buy them by subscription or by single editions in the Zoobooks web store, in select bookstores and in finer zoo, museum, aquarium and park gift shops and specialty retailers around the country.
Zoobooks offers many different subscriptions for kids of all ages. I have an 8 and 5 year old so I reviewed all of the offered subscriptions. Zoobies for ages 0-3, Zootles for ages 3-6, Zoodinos for ages 5 and up and Zoobooks for ages 6-12. Each issue is themed around a specific animal or group of animals, discussing habits and habitat in depth so the reader gains a thorough understanding. Each book also comes ad free, each page is filled with information about the animals.
Zoobies and Zootles are perfect for my 5 year old who is learning to read. He is enjoying learning facts about Alligators, as well as sounding out the words and reading! My 8 year old loves Zoodinos and Zoobooks. She is a BIG animal lover, so she was so excited to receive these. While she was reading she would look over to me and tell me all of the great facts she was learning about Elephants! The books are illustrated with beautiful photos and drawings. I love how each subscription comes with games, activities, animal questions, stickers, posters and coloring sheets! The Elephant book received even came with really cool fact cards about different animals!
One lucky reader will win a subscription of their choice to either Zoobooks, Zootles, Zoobies or Zoodinos! Offer valid to U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends on 4/10/2017.
I have 2 children that absolutely love playing dress up! My 8.5 year old daughter loves to dress up on princess dresses or cowgirl outfits. My 5 year old son loves dressing up as Super heroes or Star Wars characters. I was contacted by a company called Little Adventures to review a couple of their dress up outfits. I chose 2 outfits and an accessory for my son.
Litte Adventures offers a variety of dress up clothes and accessories for boys, girls and adults! All of the clothes are comfortable and not itchy. All items are made with quality fabrics and trims that are comfortable, washable and guaranteed!
The Little Adventures® Story
In 2002, when two moms discovered the lack of clothing-quality dress-ups and princess costumes available for their children, they decided take action. Jenny Harrison, mother of ten, and Heather Granata, mother of five, began their own little adventure by sewing and selling their very own dress-ups at local craft fairs. They made them soft and machine washable! They engineered them for everyday, all-day adventure! It didn’t take long for Jenny and Heather to realize the potential of their little endeavor. During their first year in business, they sewed over 2,000 dresses in Jenny’s basement…and with that, the Little Adventures brand was born.
“The kids played, and we sewed until we were deliriously tired,” Jenny said. “That was the start of a series of wonderful memories and an adventure that will never be forgotten.”
Today, Little Adventures is recognized as a leading provider of quality dress-ups in the specialty toy market throughout the world.
The Little Adventures® Promise
At Little Adventures we have a 100% quality guarantee! This guarantee begins with our brilliantly sewn dresses, and extends throughout our entire line of dress ups.
Our dresses feature a variety of fullness options such as organza overskirts, hip puffs, and peplums. Our stretch velvet is soft, and accommodates a variety of sizes.
Many of our dresses feature wrapped seams on the inside of the dress to prevent any itchy, scratchy or uncomfortable seams from irritating a child’s sensitive skin. Bodices are adorned with fancy trims and fabrics add to the elegance of the dress.
Our apparel-grade fabrics and construction, including finished seams and edges, provide optimum comfort to the child.
Our dresses are made using soft, durable, and snag resistant fabrics, keeping our dress-ups looking new at all times. We promise that your child will love them!
My son took a look at their site and basically wanted everything offered under the “Adventure Play” tab! I told him to choose 2 outfits and an accessory. He chose the Galactic Warrior Cloak along with the Galactic Laser Sword in color green. He also chose the Dragon Cloak in Green/Gold color.

The adjustable foam knit belt has a velcro closure and adorned with an out of this world metal decorative buckle. Features: Machine washable. $27.99 sizes 1 year to 9 years.
Galactic Laser Sword: These galactic weapons of a more civilized age are made of sturdy, durable foam that allows hours of safe play. Your little warrior can pretend to cut through blast doors or enemies alike. The bright white stripe down the middle creates a lighting effect that your warrior can pretend to predict and deflect incoming blasts and bolts. Features: High quality dense foam construction. Safe for play; made to last. $9.99.
Dragon Cloak: Our new Dragon Cloaks are sleek and edgy! This green cloak features a black dragon scale print and gold soft foam spikes along the spine of the hood and back. With Velcro and a frog closure these are easy for kids to put on and take off. Kids can wear it over their regular clothes and transform into a mystical dragon in a matter of seconds. Grab the matching cloaks in 3 other colors to complete the set. $29.99 size 3-8 years.
My son was beaming with happiness once this package arrived. He immediately wanted to try each on and start playing. I love how high quality these dress up clothes are and how they are super soft and machine washable! Now I don’t have to worry about my son wearing them in the backyard climbing around and getting them dirty! I did wash both costumes so I could let y’all know how they came out afterwords. I am HIGHLY impressed! They wash so well! Per washing instructions that come on tag, I washed in cold water and then line dried. Both dried with no wrinkles and are still super soft.
With also offering girls dress up clothes and accessories, and adult dress up…they also offer Doll Dresses for your daughter’s 18 inch doll (American Girl or American Girl type dolls). They are all super cute!!
In conclusion: These costumes are durable, super soft, high quality and the best part is that they are washable without falling apart! My son absolutely loves them, and I will be ordering a few for my daughter as well. These would make great birthday or holiday gifts!!

If you want to take the classic practice of vacuum sealing to a new level with style and convenience, you must check out the Vacuvita Vacuum Food Storage System! This system is absolutely amazing, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and how it has changed the way I store food.
What is Vacuvita?
Keep food fresh up to 5 times longer
Enjoy your daily fresh food, stop food wastage and save money. Vacuvita is a fully-automated and sustainable kitchen system that keeps food fresh for up to 5 times longer! No more freezer burned meat, dried out vegetables and soggy salad.
Have you ever tasted a steak, prepared sous-vide? With your Vacuvita system you can and you will love it! Did you forget to marinate your salmon the day before? In the vacuum containers you marinate in minutes, just in time for your spontaneous BBQ with friends and family. Whether it is marinating, pickling, sous-vide cooking, Vacuvita will help you to cook like a chef.
Did you know an average household wastes 1300 pounds of food a year costing them over $1500?
I was able to review the Vacuvita home base along with the complete container package and storage bags. This complete package would provide you everything you need to start storing your food longer and to keep it fresher.
This system utilizes not just vacuum storage bags but also various sizes of food storage containers. The bags comes in sizes Medium and Large and are completely resealable with a zipper. For example, if you store 2 chicken breasts in the bag but only want to eat one, you can do so easily and then reseal the bag. This will prevent unnecessary waste of plastic or food. Vacuvita bags are BPA and BPS free and made out of a multi-layered plastic that is stronger than what most competitor’s use.
The containers have made it possible to store foods that you were unable to store with bags with other food storage systems. Many items such as bread, chips, cookies, donuts and pantry items that could easily be crushed in the bags. These containers come in various sizes (small, medium and large) and colors (white, blue, orange and green) to suit your needs and your kitchen style. They are well designed, durable, reusable, dishwasher proof and free of BPA or BPS. With a see-through-window, and usage of high-end materials you own, this is the newest and best vacuum food container in the market. You can easily refrigerate or freeze fruits, meats, nuts and vegetables in these containers. Utilize the app for your iPhone or Android device and you will never have to worry about how long it has been in the fridge or freezer or when you put the items in the container. The Vacuvita containers can be scanned and also bags can be added. You can conveniently scan the contents of your containers without breaking the vacuum seal. When food is nearing its shelve life you’ll get a message so you can consume it in time. You’ll know exactly what you have, so you can plan your meal – even if you’re not in the kitchen. I enjoy having salad for lunch everyday, however I could never consume it quick enough before it turned soggy and brown. The containers allow me to save money on my salad items because they last so much longer in the containers.
Let me tell you about the main unit of this system, the Home Base. The Home Base is the perfect way to keep your food fresh right on your counter top. It can also be used to apply vacuum to external containers and bags. I use the home base to store my bread products right now. The home base cannot be stored in the fridge or freezer, it needs to be plugged in on your counter top. It opens easily with the push of a button, and once you close it, it automatically reseals. So easy and simple. When you want to seal up bags or containers, just plug the adaptor in and a little button will appear on the top lid of the home base. Once you put the adapter on the sealing part of the bag or container, push the button and then you just wait for the sealing to be complete. Very easy and simple.
The quality of your bread and ingredients also strongly affect the storage time. Some store bought breads have preservatives in them, so they are likely to keep longer than home baked or artisanal breads that don’t.
Because the air is sucked out of the Homebase, bags or containers, the relative humidity inside is much higher. This means that sometimes when you open the Homebase, it feels warm in there, while it is actually not warmer, but more humid than the room the Homebase is standing in. Some baked goods are very sensitive to high humidity and might even spoil faster. Keeping the bread inside a bag will resolve that as well.
If you enjoy cooking Sous Vide style, Vacuvita and Chef Steps Joule are a perfect match! I recently reviewed the Chef Steps Joule, and I love how my food turned out pairing that with the Vacuvita bags. This is such an easy process for anyone, whether you are a first time cook or a master cook! I purchased 2 rib eye steaks from the market, once I seasoned them up it was time to put them in the Vacuvita bag. The medium sized bag was perfect for the steaks. Once the bags were sealed it was time to cook! Since the bags are BPS and BPA free, I didn’t have to worry about any chemicals leaching into my food while I cook. My steak came out amazing and was juicy and delicious.
Check out this handy list comparing items to storing with or without the vacuum system:
|Room temperature||No vacuum||Vacuum|
|Fridge *||No vacuum||Vacuum|
|Meat / Sausages,
cured or smoked
|Freezer *||No vacuum||Vacuum|
**depends on ingredients.
As you can see, so many food items can be stored in the containers and bags and kept fresh. The containers are a great size and fit perfectly in my fridge or freezer with no issues. I love how you can just pop the containers open, take out what you want, seal it up and put it back. Same with the bags and their zipper closure.
|Complete Kitchen Package contains:|
This package is perfect for starting out. I also purchased 2 additional large sized containers for my cereals. They are the perfect size for a large box of dry cereal.
In Conclusion, Vacuvita has really changed the way I store my foods. No more crushed foods or stale bread products, no more freezer burned meats. And most of all, no more waste! Vacuvita keeps all of my foods fresh for a long time. Vacuvita is the sustainable way to save food and money. What more can you ask for?! Click here to shop and learn more about Vacuvita!
