Emmy's Deals Blast Zone Giveaway

SPONSORED BY:  BLAST ZONE 
Hosted by:  Emmy's Deals  
Messy Mama  expressed that her favorite part was the way this particular slide is built.  In the back there is netting along with a nice size landing.  So, if her two year old lost her footing while climbing up then she wouldn’t get hurt.  Her two year old never lost her footing though.  I HIGHLY recommend Blast Zone Inflatables.  The products come with everything you could need from stakes to patches and glue.  The products are exceptional quality.  Most importantly, they are extremely detailed in telling you how to keep your kids safe.  They kids had a blast and so did we while we watched all the fun.  Messy Mama and I were sad that we were over the weight limits for the fun though.
Read the FULL review HERE! 

Now is your chances to win a Bounce House to have for your kids (and all the neighborhood kids - because trust me, when this goes up, they come out).  Don't miss out.  Winner will receive the Magic Castle Bounce House (RV $399.99 - on sale RIGHT NOW for $269.99) - enter the Giveaway Form below

Magformers Review



My son loves things that he can build with. He has multiple sets of blocks that he loves to play with. Though when he is building towers he gets so frustrated when the towers collapse because the blocks do not stick together well. 


We went to the Children's museum one day, and he found Magformers there. He was thrilled. We spent the majority of our time sitting at the Magformers station, while he sat and stuck these great pieces together, and they didn't tumble apart. He looked like a mini construction worker. I knew right then, these would be a perfect toy for him. 

I was giving the chance to try a different set of magformers. I received them and my son barely let me get the packaging open before he started going to work. He usually is running around constantly moving from toy to toy, but with these he just will sit for up to an hour playing with just his magformers


The best part is, my husband and I LOVE them too. So even after he goes to bed, we will sit up at the dining room table and see what great things we can come up with. Which is great for time with him to play with mommy and daddy. Or for when we want something to do late night, we have contests to see who can build the better creation. I love this toy!

Jack N' Jill Natural Toothpaste Review and Giveaway


I would like to start off by telling you all about Jack N' Jill:

Jack N’ Jill makes a natural toothpaste for babies, toddlers & children that is safe to swallow. It was first made in Melbourne, Australia in 1949 and it has been a family business for more than twenty years. It continues to be made in Australia and is now available in the USA and UK as well.

Jack N’ Jill toothpaste is 100% safe for young children and babies because as you know, kids tend to swallow toothpaste rather than spit it out. The toothpaste is totally free of GMO’s, Fluoride and preservatives. Jack N’ Jill also only uses all natural, USDA Certified Organic flavors and are food grade, kosher, vegan AND gluten free!


My son has an obsession with brushing his teeth. He loves it! (Any mom's dream right?) So, I knew that him testing these toothpastes and brushes would be a breeze. I gave him the first flavor to try, which was Blackcurrant. My son literally was brushing his tongue and everything. (He is one). He even let out his mmmmmmm. Which he only does when something is super good. He let me brush his teeth, and after it took him a while to actually give me his toothbrush back. So, I tried it. It wasn't bad at all. I am not a fruity flavor person when it comes to teeth brushing, but this is also meant for little ones. It tasted sweet almost candy like. I could definitely see this helping the little ones that aren't big on brushing their teeth, want to actually brush. 





The next night, I decided to try the Blueberry flavor with him to see if he loved it just as much. His response again was "mmmmmmmmmm" He had an even harder time giving the toothbrush up, and I tried this flavor as well. It was not bad at all. I did prefer the other one. But again, this is toothpaste not candy.

Udderly Smooth Review


I swear I have the worlds driest skin. It is terrible. I am constantly looking for new creams to help with my hands, and especially my feet. So, I was so excited when I was given the chance to try Udderly Smooth

Udderly Smooth is made in the USA for over thirty years, Udderly Smooth products contain rich moisturizing ingredients. Not your average moisturizing lotion- Udderly Smooth can be used on Dry Skin, Cracked Skin, for Diabetes Foot Care, as a Facial Moisturizer, as a General Moisturizing Lotion and many other uses.

As for the product you ask? Does it work? Oh heck yes, before using this product my feet were embarrassing. I wouldn't wear sandals in public, because I didn't want people seeing my heels especially after the winter. I used the foot cream and put socks on, and over night you could see and feel the difference. 

My husband just loves the hand cream. He suffers from cracking dry skin constantly, and he took a tube with him to work to put in his locker. I definitely give this product and A++!

Sexy Pop Review



Popcorn in my house is a very normal snack. My husband and I will sit down with popcorn for a snack at least three to five times a week. It is a super healthy snack, and has the crisp taste to it, so you are not sitting and eating potato chips. SexyPop is great because it has low calories in a single serving, and the taste is amazing! 

I was given the chance to try five different flavors of SexyPop:

  1. French Butter
  2. Bangin' Cheddar
  3. Lightly Salted
  4. Brazilian Coconut 
  5. Black Pepper
My husband's favorites were the Black Pepper, because he has a thing about black pepper.  As well as Bangin' Cheddar. Which was also one of my favorites, so that bag didn't last long at all. My favorite was definitely the Brazilian Coconut. It wasn't to over powering. And definitely helped hit my sweet tooth with out all the calories I would normally intake. 



SexyPop went quick  in my house!  I loved the fun flavors, and my husband even remarked that he liked how the bags looked. 
I would buy SexyPop for a snack anytime!

Woobamboo Review




Dental Hygiene is important, so is making sure our planet is taking care of. So if you can combine the two, that make it fantastic. 


WooBamboo Toothbrushes are available in three sizes: Standard, Slim and Sprout. WooBamboo sent me one of each size to try. I chose the Standard size to try, and gave my son the Slim version to try. We both loved them. Not only because they are super cute, biodegradable, but they work very well. You don't need all those fancy bells and whistles on a toothbrush, when this one does the job just the same. It did not cause any discomfort on  my gums, but my teeth still felt clean.

Dew Puff Review



I was given a chance to try Dew Puff, an all natural cleansing sponge made completely out of plant material. 


Dew Puff face and body cleansing natural sponges are 100% plant based cleansing tools.  Dew Puff has only one ingredient - konjac root – also known as elephant yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese.  When hydrated, these natural sponges become exceptionally soft, yet gently exfoliating, while creating a perfect pH balance on the surface of the skin.  Regular use brightens and evens your skin tone without irritation.
The hydrated sponge creates a layer of water between the sponge and the skin allowing it to ‘hydroplane’ over the skin.  This makes for a thorough cleansing. Dew Puff is also perfect for use after medical spa treatments, surgery, minor wounds, and for bruised skin, because cleansing with these sponges is more gentle and less painful than using your hands.
One Dew Puff konjac sponge lasts 3 months of twice a day use. 
I have been using this for two days, and have already seen an incredible difference in my skin. After my first time using this, my skin was much smoother and felt very clean. I love that is is so gentle, I can use this on my son without any worries. 




These are Super Easy to use, just soak them in warm water and wash your face with them. You can use the Original with or without cleanser. After you are done, you just rinse them out, and hang them up to dry. These exfoliate my skin better than almost anything I have ever tried. I love these! 
They come in three varieties: 



  • Original (White) which is for the purest clean, and gentle enough for babies skin.
  • Bamboo Charcoal (Grey) which contains natural antioxidants for Blemish Prone Skin. 
  • And Asian Clay (Orange) which helps with the aging process. 


My favorite out of all is the original because I know that I can use that on my son without any issues.

EBOOST Natural Energy Shots


My husband and I are definitely people that LOVE to have a lot of energy. He works long hours, and even though I am a stay at home mom. I have to get up very early with my little one, who can definitely run me ragged. By the end of six to eight hours, I just want to crash. My husband is a second shifter, and I usually get to spend the most time with him at night. So, I usually am drinking pots of coffee to keep myself awake, or energy drinks, even energy shots. 

I am not one who likes to fill my body with chemicals. So, when I found EBOOST I was eager to try them. They couldn't have come at a better time. My husband and I just recently purchased our first home, which means that we had to load a truck up, unload the truck, and then the dreaded unpacking! Plus with having a one year old running around, "helping" it definitely made for some long hours. My husband and I both had to get up quite early to close on our new home, and he had to work the night before, so we didn't get to bed until almost four am, and both were up at seven am. Which made us start our day with our normal cup of coffee. 


As the day dragged on, we were losing our energy quick. I let him continue with his coffee, and I snuck myself an EBOOST energy shot. I decided on the orange flavor. The taste wasn't the worst I have ever had. It does taste a bit like a vitamin liquid, but really compared to other energy shot brands. This one is much more tasty. 

So, I took my shot, and it didn't take long to feel that I was much more energized. We continued working until after midnight with unpacking and everything to get it done as fast as possible, and as my husband was dragging because he wanted to continue his coffee drinking, I was fine all night. I thought I may crash hard, but that did not happen either. 


EBOOST is soy-free, gluten-free, lactose-free and non-GMO. It is a small energy "shot" that comes in multiple flavors, including: Orange, berry melon (with coconut water), or superberry. Not a fan of taking a quick shot? No problem! EBOOST also offers a boost in the form of a natural energy powder. This powder comes in the following flavors: natural orange, pink lemonade, or acai pomegranate. EBOOST is best if served chilled, and it is recommended that you only have one every 24 hours. You can purchase 12 energy shots on the EBOOST website for just $39.00, or 20 energy powder packets for just $28.00. If you are unsure about which flavor you would prefer, or whether you'd rather have a shot or the powder, EBOOST offers a sampler pack for just $8.99. EBOOST can also be found in stores such as Trader Joes, Bed Bath and Beyond, Vitamin Shoppe, and natural food/fitness stores.

Jimmy's Sticky Jerky


I was given the chance to try Jimmy's Sticky Jerky recently. In my house jerky is a HUGE deal. We are always looking for it when it is here, and it doesn't last long here. So I was really excited to have this in our home. I chose to try Beef Fire, and Beef Black Pepper. 



My husband really likes the hot stuff, so I did try the tiniest of pieces of the Beef Fire, but that was definitely my husbands favorite. I will say, if you can handle eating things like habanero hot sauce, or ghost pepper sauce without feeling like you need to drink a few gallons of milk, then the fire would be for you. My husband definitely loves the heat, and I was surprised he handled how hot it was. 

The Beef Black Pepper was my top choice. It had a little bit of heat on it from the pepper, but nothing to severe. Which is more up my alley. 


The worst part about Jimmy's Sticky Jerky? When you run out! It is that great! We definitely have been talking about this jerky for a while, and will definitely be getting more.
