Beanie Boos and Learning Express Toys Giveaway

Ok guys if these are not the cutest stuffed animals you have ever seen then I don't know if we can be friends! 😂
I won these from Learning Express toys on Instagram and the only problem I have is not wanting to share them with Tyleigh!

I love Ice the big seal. He is super soft and a big beanie boo. He makes the perfect cuddle buddy! The phone holders are also amazing and a cute fun way to express your love for your phone! They can clean it too! Just use their little feet and wipe away.

All of them are so adorable and will add happiness to any collection. I would highly recommend them as gifts but you can't have mine!!! 😆

I won the beanie boos pictured above from https://learningexpress.com
I won them from an Instagram giveaway. Be sure to give them a follow and win something from them for yourself!

Bounceland Fun????

Keane Breck and Tyleigh have been saving up money to buy a water slide for the stifling hot Alabama summer! So you can imagine their excitement when it was finally time to order one! I googled water slides for best prices and the best price was from bouncelandfun.com. We went the cheapest single slide we could find paid and 5 days later the slide was here!!! HOORAY!!

Well, not so much HOORAY =( The new water slide we purchased was not new at all. Upon opening the box I smelled a horrible stagnant moldy water smell. As I unrolled the slide I saw black mold, white mold, pen markings, pulled stitching and fading to the slide???? My poor babies =( They immediately started crying when I announced this thing has to go back. I put it inside and got on the phone to contact the company. No answer.. I got online to their website and filed a problem report not to much later I was contacted back by a customer service rep online who said all their products were new but they would accept the slide back for a full refund. At this point I am steaming because I feel I am being called a liar.. the slide I received was clearly not new as by the pictures you will see so I pitched a fit to say the least, threatened an attorney if it was resolved.. yatta yatta.. (you know me) If my babies aren't happy nobody is happy! Oh and to add to the madness just in the short time I was trying to get in touch with someone the kids mold allergies flared up! They were getting all stuffed up and inflamed so I moved the stinky slide outside!

I finally got someone on the phone (the next day) who said this type of thing had never happened before when I asked for an explanation as to why I received this slide. She said it was shipped from the main branch not their location and they would ask the company to inspect things better before shipping ( I say that is a good idea)... She said I should ship the slide back in its original package for a full refund.. problem is.. I split the original package trying to get the darn molded slide back in there! So she said she would talk to her boss and see what could be done. In the meantime Keane and Breck are freaking out because they are not going to have a slide so for the sake of my kids I called back and spoke with Cheryl (the rep. I had been talking to) and asked if instead of a refund I could just send the nasty one back for a new one.. again she has to ask her boss.. so boss says yes just send the slide back in a different box and we will send you the one once we have the old one back.. Okay good deal.

I had Memorial Day planned around the slide so unfortunately we were not able to celebrate like we thought we would with the water slide but just used our boring ol slip n slide instead! So I requested that the slide be back to me by Sat. June 4th because I am having another event with children and need it here! The original purchase date was May 19th 2001 I received the molded slide on May 25th, the slide was shipped back on the 26th (the company provided the label and had UPS pick up the next day) they received the molded slide on the 31st so to get to me originally and get back to them took 10 days because both ways was a 5 day delay so I was not expecting to get the water slide by June 3rd as promised by the company but guess what!!! I did! They even sent a better grade of slide (due to my children's sensitivity to plastic smell??) I made it clear it was not plastic that they were allergic or sensitive to it was stinking mold! So I can say that the company replied and complied with what they said they would do and were very quick with their responses (etc).

I do not feel that they took the blame though. To say they would ship a better slide due to my kids sensitivity to plastic smell and by saying all their items were new?? They never admitted any blame to me or BBB. They tried to turn it around on me saying that I had apologized and they were working with me to send another water slide.. I apologized for my temper but not the overall upsettings about this ordeal. They kept saying to satisfy the customer we will send the other slide. So as far as fixing the problem bouncelandfun.com did a great job but as far as taking any blame or responsibility or a true apology I feel like they were lacking.

But overall we are satisfied now with the company and if they did not feel they were wrong I do not think they would have sent a replacement anything and especially not a more expensive slide!?

As for the slide itself .. it is small. Good for my 4 and 1 year old but boring for the 6 year old. Although the slide is 7 feet the the drop is probably 4.5 or 5 feet.. so not that exciting for older kids! But it was the most reasonable price and it will keep them cool so its worth it! Here is the link to the slide we ended up with! Keane Breck and Tyleigh's Waterslide.

Overall I would say if I needed another bouncehouse or slide I would use bouncelandfun.com due to the willingness to make the problem right, sticking to their word and doing it very quickly! So if you are in the market for a water slide for the hot summer give them a try.. at least you know they will take care of any problems if you have one!!!! =)

Oliver's Personalized Kid's Label Review

I requested labels for Tyleigh Eden upon getting approved for the labels. I was excited to get the cute girly print and font for her! All the letters in her confusing name were in place and you can tell they took their time to get them made up for her.
I immediately stuck a sticker on one of her cups and after 2 weeks and about 20 washes the sticker is hanging in there! No fading or water bubbles and better than that no sign it has even thought about coming off!
These are by far the best sticker labels I have seen. If you have a child in daycare, school or just simply want to decorate and add some personality to your kids items these are the labels I would recommend to you! Ordering is easy simply click here Oliver's Labels to be taken to the site, pick you font and design and they will ship them to you!

HandHelditems.com is the WORST Company I have ever dealt with.

Bad business ethic really gets under my skin.
I cannot stand when companies are trying to rob us. Do you think I am just going to sit around and let you steal my money HandHelditems.com? I mean really!?
Partially this is my fault as I should have read all the bad reviews before I even attempted to purchase from these people.
And so it all begins.. Cats have fleas, cats come in, dogs get fleas.. couches beds and even company get fleas.. Boo! I know. I go online to shop for Frontline spray because I am cheap and the spray lasts longer. HandHelditems comes up in my search as the best priced IN STOCK place to purchase from. I go through the process of checkout, use my paypal account and send them $41.10 for a 250 ml spray bottle of Frontline. I get my account information and the ORDER PROCESSED information.

Well, yesterday at about 6:00p.m. approximately 32 hours after my order was "processed" I get an email saying that the Frontline was out of stock and discontinued and I would be refunded. First off it should not take this long to let me know that the item is not in stock. Second, I had not received a refund.. No refund! So I contact them through there little contact page and let them know how displeased I am with the way this was handled and I would like my refund immediately so that I can purchase the Frontline from a company with some business ethic. I am not a rich woman, I do not have $100 to put out on some flea spray at one time (ya dig!)

I get a reply that my money would be refunded TODAY. (Today being yesterday November 17th.)
I can provide that email by forward if anyone is interested in seeing that proof! Well, I wake up this morning and guess what?? NO REFUND! So I call and send numerous email trying to figure out why. I am assured that I will get a refund today. The accountant is not in but when she gets in they will refund my money through paypal. (Mind you please that there is a little button that says issue refund that you use to issue a refund with paypal, hard? I think not!)
Ok, that is fine. I just really need my money back so I can order Frontline please. I am assured again that it will be refunded today. By 2:00 p.m. no refund.
I call back speak with a lady this time. I am slightly irate at this point because these people are giving me the runaround about my money..
She says that paypal is holding my money and they have refunded it.

Call paypal.. NO they have not attempted to refund my money so I call back and speak with the same guy I spoke with this morning. He says some mumbo jumbo about his accountant being sick and that he has 7 days to refund my money. I reminded him of the email I got last night that said it would be refunded then and also when I spoke with him this morning he said it would be refunded today. Obviously I will get my money back through paypal but why do they want my money for 7 days? It seems like if you know you cannot keep it you would just give it back and not cause me such a dang headache. I have had to open a dispute through Paypal to get my money back. I would like to sue them for bad business even though it is only $41.10!
My advice to you my friends is steer clear of HandHelditems.com.
