Our Generation Arabian Horse


Disclosure: The horse below was sent compliments of Our Generation. Carlee got her first 'big girl' doll last Christmas. Since then we have slowly been adding to her collection. Most recently, a horse and stable. We wanted quality and affordability, so we turned to Our Generation. The Our Generation Arabian Horse is the perfect pet and companion for her doll! The Arabian Horse is the perfect addition to any 18 inch doll collectors collection. In the box along with the horse you get a saddle, a bridle, a horse blanket, a saddle pad, a brush, a grooming mitten, a box of horse treats in a box, a bag of horse treats and a horse show ribbon which makes pretend play even easier! I found that all the accessories were easy to use and high quality, which I honestly didn't expect. Even my 6 year old was able to easily get them on and off with … [Read more...]

Our Generation: Saddle-Up Stable


Disclosure: The stable featured below was provided compliments of Our Generation. I have recently begun really trying to encourage Carlee to use her imagination. I felt like the only things she was interested in involved some sort of screen and I wanted her to have the memories of make believe that my childhood was filled with. One way I have seen her imagination burst to life is with her new found love of dolls. Carlee almost always has a doll with her and whenever she has a friend come over, I find them playing dolls together. Some days their dolls are princesses, some days they are teachers. Most recently they have been champion horse riders!! Carlee asked me a few weeks ago for a stable for her dolls horse and foal to sleep in. I helped her make a makeshift one with a big cardboard box, she played with it for hours but because it … [Read more...]

Earthpaste: Amazingly Natural Toothpaste


Disclaimer: This product was purchased by me! My family is vehemently against fluoride toothpaste. The major brands of fluorinated toothpastes are chock full of nasty chemicals and should not be swallowed under any circumstances. This is a difficult task if you have small children like I do. While searching for a toothpaste that meets my high standards of natural ingredients and actually tastes good we stumbled across Earthpaste. Earthpaste is made of naturally occurring bentonite clay (Redmond clay), Salt, and essential oils. At a molecular level, Redmond clay has a negative electrical charge, attracting positively charged toxins and holding them in it's core. This allows your body to rid itself of toxins as you brush. Because Earthpaste does not use titanium dioxide to bleach it, it remains in it's “raw” state and looks kind of like … [Read more...]
