Aminals was kind enough to send us Dinasor to review. I was immediately impressed by its softness and vibrance. Dinasor was a radiant, earthly green color and the perfect size for cuddling. His flat, one-dimensional shape made him easy to grasp and carry.
Aminals are a line of eco-friendly stuffed toys, inspired by children's illustrations. The bright, whimsical, vivid caricatures invite us into the secret, imaginative world of a preschooler. Each Aminal comes with its own little autobiography, but it's up to your little one to decide their next adventure.
All Aminals are certified organic, stuffed with 100% unbleached, unprocessed, petrochemical-free organic cotton and dyed with low-impact, natural vegetable dyes.
Kids' drawings are brilliant, aren't they? Exaggerated proportions, squiggly lines, bright colors; they are creative expression at its most honest - and most hilarious!
Our children live and play in imaginary worlds and secret spaces - they invite their dolls to sit for tea parties, eat mud pies, or carry them upside down to bed with them to keep scary night monsters at bay. They do this in their artwork too!
Inspired by, and in celebration of these imaginary worlds, vivid artwork - and ALL the amazing characters living in them - we bring to life a new line of huggable-soft dolls called Aminals.

Visit when you meet the Aminals, you'll see that each character has its own special story, yet each is ready for new adventures with our kids. The Aminals family will soon be your kids' favorite companions, and most secret confidants!
Meet the Aminals - Dady, Momey, Sistur, Brothr, Duggy, Eflant, Ceeta, Dinasor, Smal Bayr, Liun and Wayul. Visit for a special Aminal doll for a special child in your life.

SodaStream was kind enough to send me the Fountain Jet Soda Starter Kit and 9 variety of regular and diet flavors to review. Me and my family were happy to try it out and see how it would taste. To our surprise we loved it.

The machine was incredibly easy to assemble. We loved that we could place the machine anywhere on our kitchen counter since we didn't have to consider outlet access. Visit for all their SodaStream soda makers and varieties of flavors.
The instructions were as simple as three steps:
1.) Fill the bottle with chilled water to fill line. You want to make sure the water is cold for best results.
2.) Tilt, screw bottle into the machine and press top button (until you hear buzzing) to carbonate the water to your liking. Three presses is standard but you could press less for a flatter soda or more for a fizzier drink. The bottles are designed to be high-pressure resistant so they can withstand the process no matter how much fizz you add.
3.) Unscrew bottle from the machine, add a capful of the SodaMix of your choice, swirl and voila! One liter of bottle just the way you like it.
I definitely enjoyed my SodaStream Maker! It's a great product that works efficiently. It was fast, and easy to use! That is something I love and look for in products! I loved the soda so much because it really did taste fresher than soda you would buy in the store! We look forward to making more soda with our maker! I know that everyone will be as impressed with SodaStream as we have!
