HOME Helps: For Locomotor and Imagination Development of Young Children

T.amz.CircularSaw.ClickN'Play.15.12.09

Toy Circular Saw by Click N’ Play

This toy mimics the sound and feel of a circular saw. It is light enough for a 3-year old, and operates on 2 AAA batteries. It has given hours of make-believe carpentry to develop the locomotor and imagination skills of my nephew.

The construction is heavy-duty to take drops from a toddler to young child, the unbreakable hard plastic material is durable, and the vibrant colors source are lead-free and safe. This would make a good stocking stuffer for this holiday with its affordable price.

TRAVEL Bug: Max out my Free Baggage Allowance without Fear of Extra Charges

I travel with a variety of baggage specifications, and would like to take advantage of it to the max without being charged extra. Airlines can be awfully strict with both check-in and carry-on luggage that you wouldn’t like to fuss on it while lined up by the airport terminal.

amz.IMG.15.5.1.LuggageScale.OnPoint.81B7fUTlXGL._SL1500_Since I got this luggage scale, it had been my indispensable buddy. It is so easy to use. All I have to do is wrap around its strap onto the handle of the luggage (estimating the center of gravity), turn on the reading display and set to the preferred unit of measure, and lift the T-style meter handle for approximately 5 seconds or shorter until it arrives at a stable reading. I then keep it conveniently in my travel fanny pack for quick reference during actual weighing in, should there be a large discrepancy. I noticed that it is accurate to a clearance of +/-0.2 kilogram since I used it thrice. It is portable, can be enveloped within an average adult female fist, and the stainless steel design makes it look like a classy keychain.

HOME Helps: Hygienic, Spill-Proof & Easy to Clean ZIP-SIP Food Pouches in Chemical-Safe Material

BACKGROUND: Since I started preparing my own smoothies, I’d like to bring some with me and take it while driving on the way to work. I used to funnel it in PET bottles & freeze it overnight. My concern is that despite taking a long time to clean it, I still end up worrying that it had not been thoroughly sanitized. PET bottles leave an odor, too.

UPSIDE:  I call these food pouches my flexi-bottle that hold semi-liquid/semi-solid food. They are my flexible, handy and reusable containers for mashed food & smoothies while on the go. It has a wide opening at the bottom for filling in and a sturdy duel-zipper system (similar to zip-lock) for sealing, while the narrow opening for dispensing on the opposite end can be resealed with a twistable leak-proof cap. It is made of safe, non-reactive and non-contaminating materials, has a see-through window for checking the contents & rewriteable area for labeling and putting the date/time the food was prepared. After use, it can be rolled up & bound in rubber band to save space in my purse. To wash, open both ends and allow water and soap to run-through so particle don’t get caught, and you have access to cleaning the inside of the container without using a bottle brush. I also love the idea of recycling to help save the environment, and I’ve used it almost everyday for a month now & it still serves me in the same way it did the first day I got it.

DOWNSIDE:  The container comes in the brown color only. I hope it can be available in all see-through (I like seeing what I eat), or other scientifically-proven attractive colors and designs for picky toddlers and children.

TRAVEL Bug: Discreetly Chic in Classic Black (without the reflectors) & Keeps my Hands Free While Traveling

This discreet unreflectorized unisex armband goes well over the sleeve part of my classic spring business clothes. The inside fabric does not get my clothes fuzzy or linty, yet holds well without getting the rest of my arm cold & limp from decreased circulation. I’m a 120-pounder & it can go for the slightly skinnier arm to the heavier one (as long as your arm circumference is between 9-1/2 to 15 inches, it would fit perfectly).

The plastic face is sensitive to touch command, & gives slight anti-scratch protection from minor impact & moisture resistance from humidity & sweat. I love the itsy-bitsy kangaroo pouch for a key or loose bills should I need an immediate place to stash it away when wearing pocketless clothes.

I do a bit of traveling through airports, & hate flipping through my purse or belt bag to reach for my phone when I need it. This armband presents a solution to keep my hands free whenever I need to lift baggage & stuff, search for my passport & travel documents, or hold a cup of brew while lugging around my carry-on, as well as keeps my all-important smartphone within reach.

The price to benefit ratio is A-okay with me, I can opt to discard it if I am unsatisfied with my handwashing should it start getting stinky.

TRAVEL Bug: A Traveler’s Dependable & Complete Sewing Kit for Emergency Repairs

amz.15.3.29.SewingKit.QuickStitch.61-VqAsf2OL._SL1100_I do a lot of traveling for business & leisure, & no matter how careful I am with my limited clothing (I travel light), it’s unavoidable that the stitching on apparel can come loose after a whole day out, or in the rush of packing, had mistakenly included unrepaired ones. To answer these rare but probable mishaps, I stash in my own emergency sewing kit, as not all hotels provide adequate sewing tools & threads. This one from Quick Stitch solves most of my immediate problems. It is small & handy in a neat zippered pouch, so it does not occupy much space nor add weight to my luggage, yet complete enough with 12 threads in all the primary & secondary colors of the rainbow, inclusive of the standard black & white. I can confidently pick one nearest to the color I need. The spools are reuseable & may be refilled, no need to discard to buy a new kit. The threader is a plus, & there’s one more for extra in case you break the first.  Not to mention are the teeny-weeny scissors & thimble that ease the sewing process, I don’t have to bite off thread to cut it nor suffer needle marks when doing sewing on tough materials. Though I have little use for the tape measure & varied needles, I keep them handy. The gartered organizer straps keep everything tidy which makes it easy to check if you need thread refills or fail to put back some of the tools. As a travel bug, this sewing kit answers all my needs.
