Way to many toys! Wait….did I actually say that?

Yes, I just said that..way to many toys, with more to come!

I find it so hard to film with 3 small boys, even though I SO love it and so do they. I am way behind in filming and need to get my schedule back in place.

I am totally embarrassed to show this, but this is real life.. and it’s messy. Looks kinda like a junk draw but more of a throw all place!

I keep saying I’m going to get it together, but with a very small space it’s so hard! Look at all of those boxes full of toys to review. Ugh and my broken iPad I tried to fix, but just made worse to were it won’t even power on now!

IMG_3949

Ah.. and my train table. I have SO much stuff for my Thomas channel but no were to put it, so there is all is ha! I have a huge storage cubby shelf thing my sister gave me from Ikea that I will be using… well once we buy a house! I can’t fit anything else into our room right now!

IMG_3950

So many other things I need to sort through! I have games that  were sent to us several months ago that we still haven’t played!

I did have a filming schedule each week before we left for NYC, (this worked out great btw), but gee, it takes all day just to film a few videos! I was filming every Wednesday in-between working from home. My Niece would watch Baby A, which was awesome, and then I would film for our main channel with Zieke and LJ.

Every so often my Niece would watch all three or my Mom would watch the older two so I could film for my Thomas channel. I think one day I did 7 videos in one day! It was insane, but I was trying to get all caught up before our big trip.

Oh gee, this angle is even worse.. now I definitely do not want to post this! HA!

This is why we need an extra room or a basement when we move. I dream of having a studio/filming room!

I have at least 5 companies sending me items to review, one of which I have to post by August 5th, plus a few I already have received, plus the ones from Sweet Suite, PLUS all the other ones I have had for awhile! I am more stressed now after actually typing it all out! So, I guess I need to get busy!

Sweet Suite Swag Box full of toys! It has arrived!

17 POUNDS…. Of PURE HAPPINESS!

Ahh! We decided to open it up with All.. Three.. Boys….!! It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. We had some small fights and fits.

(We are trying to teach them about sharing, which btw, isn’t going so well!)

IMG_3845

We had to open it outside because our house still isn’t all put together from being away so long! (In case you WERE wondering, I DID get all the laundry done, well cleaned at least, ..in huge pile in our utility room, Ha!)

IMG_3850

Look at this squishy! Ah! We haven’t had one this big before and it’s SUPER squishy and slow rising!

IMG_3852

We looked through everything but a lot I put back for future videos! I know, I know.. but that trip costed a pretty penny, so I need these for individual videos!

This Mic Guy looks so fun! It’s a 2 in 1 wireless microphone and bluetooth speaker! How fun is this going to be!

IMG_3853

This! Ah! This is by Moose Toys and it looks so fun! You have to dig out your surprise collector toys!

IMG_3854

I LOVE Squishies! This one was SUPER cute! Check out our video to see it!

IMG_3855

Oh and SLIME! I’m not a fan of slime, because it’s super messy and the boys got it all over Skye when we first got her.. and yea.. I’ll stop there.. BUT they do love it. So we keep it in one area of the house now! This is Frozen Treats Slime and they have scents too! Ok, so this DOES have me intrigued!

IMG_3856

I couldn’t get pictures fast enough! 3 sets of hand were everywhere!

IMG_3857

DIY Bath bombs! Ah! Something boyish! I Love it! Can’t wait to try these.

IMG_3863

Aw! A fingerling plushy that talks! Super cute and pink!

IMG_3864

Now this was cool, it was like a squishy with in a plush!

IMG_3865

Beaker Creatures! I think its like a bath ball and you submerge into the water to reveal a collectors creature. Super fun!

IMG_3868

LOOK as all of this! There was so much stuff! Love that float, we got some nail decals, oh and look at the Five Nights at Freddys set!

IMG_3869IMG_3870

IMG_3898

IMG_3920

So this is what I ended up putting back for later! (even though the boys did go back to grab more out!) We have at least a months full of videos in this box!

 

It was so generous of all these companies to send out these samples! I can’t wait to start filming again! BIG thank you to all of them and for Sweet Suite inviting us to attend! I can’t wait for next year!

Sweet Suite 18 Toy Fair NYC! We made it! Part 2

IT.. WAS.. EPIC!

It was totally worth it! Don’t get me wrong, traveling with a 4 & 5 year old is/was rough, but we did it! They had so much fun and got SO much stuff, with more to come. There were some booths were LJ just wouldn’t step away from!

There was this one booth that the boys really enjoyed:

IMG_3506

They have such a creative product! You get to create your own story and then hear it read back to you! It’s called my fabulous storyteller! Boys loved it so much that they gave us one! Definitely doing a video on this! 48 Stories plus you can download more!

There are way to much to post on here, so I will just post a ton of pics! Ha!

IMG_3560IMG_3562

Peace out from NYC,

NYC Sweet Suite Toy Fair

Sweet SuiteAhhh! So we are gearing up for this fair! I am super nervous and excited at the same time!

Our channels are so small (hopefully not forever), so it’s very intimidating going into this huge event!

We are planning on driving there ( a 10.. hour.. drive.. eek!). We still have a dentist appointment to go to and we also have to drop off our puppy (Skye) at my sisters, as well as getting some items for our trip and we still have to pack!

This trip is going to be such an investment, but it sure is a dream come true! Boy’s will love it I’m sure, plus we will get some swag sent to us later on!

Well soo that’s day 1.. not to much excitement going on.. yet!

A very stressed Mommy B
