Robby Wash Ball Review and Giveaway.US Only Ends 7/18

The Robby Wash blue laundry ball pack is designed to be used in both cold and hot water for 12 months on average with softness and colors maintained.  Does not require any additional detergent to clean clothes or odor removal detergents to get your laundry smelling fresh. Works with both front load and top load washing machines.  The pack includes the blue washing ball, a stain stick and three extra packets of macro-molecule pellets. For advanced cleaning on dark clothes 

I was sent the Robby Wash ball to review, and have used it for the last couple weeks for my laundry. 
My son has super sensitive skin, and so far it has not at all made his eczema fair up. With summer here, it means messier foods, and far more grass, dirt, and even more outside stains, that I can't explain then factor in my husbands factory job, and the things that can be on his clothes, and you have an idea of my laundry mess. 

I had my doubts when I received this wash ball, but  it happened to be laundry day, when it arrived, so I thought well here't the test.I opened the box, took out the ball, and looked it over, read that all I had to do was drop it in the wash, so in the washer it went, and I ran downstairs to check the washer, my 2 year old is great at staining his clothes and the day before had been my daughters 8th birthday, which meant purple, and neon green frosting. I was expecting to have to rewash the shirt a few times, but to my surprise the icing stains were GONE! yes it was clean, and I didn't even use the stain stick. 

I now use it on everything , it saves me so much time, which I love.because not only do I hate the basement, but with 3 kids of my own, and daycare, the less time I am way from the kids, for any reason the better. I love the convenience, and when I'm done with laundry I just take it out of the washer and set it on the shelf to dry out.

Top 11 robby wash ball benefits that delight:

1. Save money – it’s hard enough to carry all those boxes of laundry detergents much less pay a premium for them – that’s why we make it affordable for you.  Standard laundry detergents can cost you up to $1 per load whereas the highly efficient robby laundry ball is less than $0.25 per load.

2. Simple.  Just throw it in the washing machine.
   Anyone can now do the laundry! Works in both front and top load washing machines.

3. Targeted cleaning.  
Use the fuschia ball for low temperature loads (32-90ºF) and the blue washing ball for high temperatures (32-180ºF). Maintains softness in your laundry while removing odors and stains.

4. Hypoallergenic.  Since you are not using cups of laundry detergent your laundry is cleaned in a manner that is much easier on your skin while at the same time giving you the performance you expect in a highly efficient laundry cleaner.

5. Baby safe laundry solution.  Formulated to being gentle on your child's clothes but strong enough to remove the stains.

6. Free stain stick included with each washing ball purchase.

7. Fresh scent. Your clothes will have a very light fresh scent for a feeling of freshness.

8. High efficiency laundry.  Each Robby Wash ball pack will clean on average for 12 months.  This includes three refill packets of macromolecules.  If you have an over-sized washing machine, we recommend using two washing balls.

9. Helps the environment.  Just look at what you are not dumping down the pipes (10 ounce ball = 75+ pounds of laundry detergent)!

10. Economical refills.  Simply open the tab on the ball to refill with the macro molecule pellets when they are less than 75% full.  This keeps you from having to throw away the ball.  Each ball should last for 2-3 years.

11. Safety.  Designed in France to meet the strict compliance requirements of the Europe and contains no phosphates or chlorine.  The Robby Wash ball has received safety certifications from REACH, RoHS.  Each ball is made of durable ABS materials.

We were sent the Berry Blast Yo Drops to try out and my kids seemed to really like them. I gave them each a pack to try out since even my youngest is 2, and eats everything we do. I really like the fact they are organic, and not filled with the additives some of the similar products on the market today are. 

The only thing about these I dislike is that my kids prefer everything in a bowl, so I poured a package per  bowl, and noticed they has issues picking up the different sizes. I love the idea they are a healthy snack for the kids I don't believe Yo Drops are something I would buy on a normal basis. Yo Drops are priced at $3.99 at which makes them an affordable price, and about even with normal store pricing for similar products.

Lucky Puppy Clothing Review

When long time friends Sandi Hochman and Jonathan Cathey joined forces to create products for fellow dog enthusiasts, an innovative lifestyle brand with a focus on children’s fashion was founded. Sandi’s adoration for all things dog related merged with Jonathan’s creativity is the basis behind Lucky Puppy. Admittedly so adorable, the only tagline deemed appropriate was “Nothing But Cute”.

While Lucky Puppy is cute and adorable, the real heart of the brand is what makes it irresistible. Created with the idea of giving back, each online purchase of Lucky Puppy helps to rescue a homeless dog. Lucky Puppy is dedicated to matching strays with loving families and they succeed by partnering with various animal foundations on a local and national level.

Currently, Lucky Puppy is proud to be partnering with The Grey Muzzle Organization. Grey Muzzle is dedicated to helping homeless senior dogs. Their goal is to enable animal welfare organizations to improve their ability to provide care, comfort, and loving homes for older dogs. In the past, the brand has partnered with Animal Haven, Much Love Animal Rescue and Paws and Learn Humane Education Center.

Pirate - Charcoal - Burnout

Lucky Puppy sent Z this super adorable Pirate Tee. I thought it was so super cute the second I opened the box, and he wanted to put it on right way. It's thin so it's great for those hot days we have this time of year here in Michigan. I have washed it a few times, and it holds up great, so even though it's thin material it is quality material. 

Lucky Puppy offers many other styles of kids clothing.

I was very happy to how much fun everyone had with these. By everyone I mean my 8 year old daughter, my 4 year old daughter, and even my 16 year old sister. M y little ones enjoyed coloring the Shrinky dinks, and then my sister and I cut them out. 

It was great to watch the kids use their imagination, to decide that the giraffe should be purple with green spots, or that the whale needs to be  black and white. They has lots of fun with these, and thought they were super neat to watch shrink in the oven.    

In the package of Zoo Safari Shrinky Dinks came with:

10 Shrinky Dinks Sheets (5” x 8”) and Zoo Safari tracing sheets.

Which if you space them out enough you can actually fit enough to make at least 2 of each one on these 10 sheets.  But be careful, after baking they are a little more fragile. my girls liked to play with them, and a few broke.  

Over all though, we had so much fun with these, I would defiantly buy more of these to do. The kids had way to much fun not to.

Shrinky Dinks come in many more designs.
Head on over to BSW Toys to check out these and even more great toys your children will love.
