Amazon Purchases

Time to share some of my recent Amazon purchases! I love Amazon link up day with Tanya! As always, I have a super random mash up of items.

LED Candles

I don’t really buy a lot of candles for our house, since most bother Chris’s allergies when I burn them. It’s sad, I know. One of my favorite things about candles is the ambiance that they give off. I found these LED remote controlled candles on Amazon. You get eight, two of each size, and you can turn them on and off and change the dimness and flicker with the remote. I am obsessed! Zoe was so excited when she saw them, she asked to keep one in her room too. I have them scattered all over the house now. I cant wait to use them in holiday decor too!

Folex Carpet Spot Remover

I jumped on the Folex train after seeing so many people rave about it. I really got it to see if it could help get the stains off our outdoor furniture. I have no clue what got on it??? Long story short, it didn’t work for that. But it is a great carpet stain remover to have on hand for regular carpet stains!

Isotoner Slide Slippers

Totes Isotoner Microterry Satin Slide Slippers with Memory Foam

Apparently, I can’t walk around barefoot for 6 months. My feet have been KILLING me lately. I have a pair of Ugg slippers that Chris got me for Christmas last year. They are so cute and I love them. However, they are way too hot to wear unless it is freezing outside. And honestly, the bottoms are flat and pretty hard. They don’t help my current pain situation. I found these super cute slippers that have memory foam. They are so soft and don’t make my feet too hot for daily wear. I love that the bottoms have a real sole on them, so you could wear them outside if you needed to.

Pilot V7 Pens

I am a pen snob. When I find a pen I like, I buy it over and over until I can no longer find it. And then I am sad and lost and try a million until I find my next “it” pen. I think I originally picked a pack of these up at Walgreens one day when I stopped to grab a diet coke on the way back to my office. It was love at first strike to paper, and I wont write with anything else. My one lonely pen that was left from a year ago, died a tragic death this week. I took to google to find some. Thank you Amazon!!!


Chris got me Operation as part of my birthday present because I love playing games as a family. Such a fun, classic one!

Counting/Sorting Bears

This set is so perfect for a toddler! You can do so much with them. You can start with sorting colors, and learning motor skills with the big tweezers. Then when they are older, they can start counting bears, working on patterns, addition and subtraction, and they even have model cards to build things with the cups and bears to follow instructions. Such a great investment with tons of lessons you can build around them! I love that this comes with box to store them all in too. We have used these in so many different lessons, and Zoe just likes to play with them as well.

Jumbo Colorful Eyedroppers Set

This dropper set has been the talk of lessons lately in our house. We did an experiment with baking soda and vinegar in a muffin tin, mixed food coloring to learn about colors and just sensory play pouring them in and out of different things. These are the perfect size for smaller hands (and adults too!) Zoe loved that they were all different colors and had their own stand to keep them in. Which is great for when she didn’t empty them all the way. They weren’t leaking all over the table.

Little Kingdom Disney Princess Royal Friends

Do you know how hard it is to find the “friends” of the princesses??? Zoe has been obsessed with Rapunzel and wanted her own Pascal to play with her dolls. They made a stuff beanie size, but she wanted ones to fit in the doll house. This set is perfect, because you get so many friends in one! Plus it came with a Rapunzel doll, and skirt and animals on her detach to change up the outfit. Zoe has been all about her smaller toys and independent imaginative play lately. This was a great find!!!

Kinetic Sand Sandisfying Set

Zoe is a big fan of kinetic sand. We have a sensory bin that we do often with a bag of kinetic sand and some safari animals that we bury, and she digs up. I wanted to do more with the sand, and this is the perfect kit! You get 2 bags of sand (red and blue) and a ton of tools to do all kinds of fun things! There are circle and square shaped ones, as well as cutters, squishers and molds. I had just as much fun as Zoe doing all kinds of things with it. Would make a great gift!

DenTek Kids

Our dentist recommended these flossing sticks to us when Zoe was 2, and we have been buying them ever since. I had normally just grabbed a bag at Target when needed, but these are such a better deal on Prime!!! One bag at Target is around $3, and you can get six bags on Prime for less than $10. Zoe loves the colored ones, getting to “pick” one each night based on her mood gives her the feeling of control. These are great for reaching far back in her mouth with no issues.

LOL Advent Calendar

I know some people think it is early to start shopping for Christmas, but this year I am not taking any chances. I want to make an advent calendar a part of our traditions with Zoe, and I thought this LOL one would be the perfect for her elf to deliver on December 1! You get a doll, and each day you open an outfit or accessory to go with her. How fun is that??? We don’t have any LOL stuff, so I figured it would be something new and exciting.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? What is on your wish list? What are you planning on getting for the kiddos?

    I love the tip on finding the princess friends…we have a Daniel Tiger set and it doesn’t have anywhere near ALL of of the characters but they just don’t exist out there. Wells loves playing with the friends of Daniel.

    And you’re right: time to get a jump on Christmas. Eek.

    I need to get those slippers because I’ve been having the same problem! my niece loves the LOL dolls – I need to check out the calendar.

    Those slippers look and sound great! We love operation, now you make me want to pull it out again except our is over 40 years old, LOL! Have a great day sweet friend!

    Those slippers look super comfy! The advent calendars are such a good idea – I need to get on my Christmas shopping – I’m so bad about getting my shopping done early.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo Vincent October 6, 2020 at 11:09 am

    I’m a huge pen snob too & I’ve never tried those!!! Adding to my cart right now!

  • Reply Audrey October 6, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    Oooh, those bears are a great idea! We don’t need them yet but I’m going to put them on my wishlist for M on Amazon! Same with the Disney friends!

    Those LOL dolls scare me. I feel like they’d beat me up in a dark alley at midnight if I came across one… Hahaha. I hope Zoe loves her calendar, though!

    I wish I would have had some of those candles last night when the electricity went out for three hours instead of burning the good stuff, hee hee. I have not started Christmas shopping. Luckily now my siblings and I just go to dinner with our partners instead of presents so that cuts down on the list!

  • Reply Danielle Butler October 6, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    I have been looking for more kinetic sand toys. I am going to get that one for the girls! I need to start Christmas shopping now and grab a few of these items too. The counting one is still great for my girls too.

    Those are my daughter’s favorite pens too. Love the candles! Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

    Love those candles!! I hope Zoe loves her advent calendar – I’m sure it’ll be exciting since you don’t already have anything LOL. I know my niece loved them. I’m already Christmas shopping for sure. Honestly, I don’t think it’s ever “too early” but especially with it being Fall and October. Good time to start looking and trying to save money, etc. I don’t want to spend a ton all at once because I’m scrambling. I have my nieces and nephew finished, which is nice, and pretty much all of my sister’s gifts have been ordered.

    I love lighting candles so thankfully no one is bothered by them. I do need some LED ones for our pumpkins. That sorting kit looks great. I might need to put that on the kids Christmas list. We’re already starting to shop.

    Oh my gosh, i never thought about how much we’ve been walking around barefoot for such a long time compared to normal. Those slippers sound like such a great find & I love the idea of those candles– especially with winter coming up. I always wanted Operation but it was one we never had for some reason, games are so much fun and always such good gift ideas. I have kinetic sand on Mason’s Christmas list, but I don’t think I’m going to end up waiting that long, LOL. That LOL sounds so fun for advent– I almost got Mason a little Thomas one, but I don’t think he’s ready this year (would just be mad he couldn’t open them all at once, lol).

    Oh, I love those pens, too! I order them in big boxes then hide them from everyone else. I used to love one from Uniball but I don’t think they make it anymore. 🙁
    I’m always so impressed by how much you are teaching Zoe, and how wonderful you are at identifying learning activities for her that are also fun.
