El Arroyo Book Of Signs [Sneak Peak + Giveaway]


If you follow us on Facebook, you may have noticed that I'm a huge fan of El Arroyo signs. You can imagine how excited I was when a friend of mine gifted me the El Arroyo's Mini Book of Signs a few days ago. The book's sitting on my desk and I start every day with a new sign. When I need a laugh throughout the day, I simply turn my head to the left and - there's my sign.

Best Birthday Party Ever-Series: Foam Party [Review + Special Offer]


And another “Best birthday party ever!” in the books. I’m very good at throwing the best birthday parties ever, if I may say so myself. This time, we had 6 girls over for a party and sleepover. Those 6 plus our 2 daughters, makes 8 girls ages 6-9. (Yes, there is a girl with a black bucket on her head. She likes to do things like that.)

After researching the awesome Live Grow Play Austin Kids Directory (which I created and manage myself – patting myself on the back), I decided to go with a foam party provided by Freedom Fun.

Free Children's Books - Live Grow Play Austin “Read and Share” Program


Listen up, bookworms and Moms and Dads of future bookworms! Does your kiddo love to read or love to listen when you read to them?

We receive many children’s book review requests and just can’t keep up with reviewing all the books ourselves anymore. We'd hate to turn the authors down since we love books and we love to support the awesome people who help educate and entertain our little ones.

We know that many of you are or have little book lovers at home, so we wanted to see if anybody would be interested in a “Read and Share” program, where you have the opportunity to receive free books in return for book reviews? Read on for details.

Magic's In The Air With Austin's Magician Extraordinaire: Peter The Adequate [Review + Discount]


Do you believe in magic? I do. I always have. And - I am fascinated with magicians. My husband smiled at me with a “I-wonder-who-has-more-fun”-smile when I took the girls to their first magic show and got them a magician box for their birthday (and he’s right, I secretly play with it when they’re at school - just kidding).

So, I was very excited to have Austin’s wonderful magician Peter the Adequate come to my daughter’s birthday party. I had seen his show before and I knew the kids would love his show. And they did. Read our review and take advantage of two special discounts just for Live Grow Play Austin readers.

Frisbee® Sonic - Flies Like A Bird, Looks Like A Stingray [Giveaway]


We love playing Frisbee and we have all kinds of Frisbees at home. Big, small, hard, soft, you name it. Now, we've recently received a new kind of Frisbee to try. It looks pretty cool and here’s how Wham-O describes it: “The square-like, sine wave shape mimics many things in nature. The alternating twists and turns of the design resemble a bird in flight as it spins through the air.” It’s true, it does look like a stingray in motion.

Check it out and enter for a chance to win your own Frisbee Sonic.
