DVD Giveaway: Braincandy's Smell My World

UPDATE: We have a winner! Jenni, please send your address to I'll get your smelly Braincandy DVD right out to you. Congrats!

I recently received a few of Braincandy's "senses" series of DVDs, Smell My World and Taste My World, for review. Ava checked out the latter and I saved Smell My World for you. Well, not for all of you. Just one lucky winner.

Ava, who is 2 1/2 years old, thoroughly enjoyed the Taste My World DVD. Visually, it's unlike anything of her other Tivo favorites. She likes to watch Go, Diego, Go, Max and Ruby, Dora the Explorer and Peep. I thought that maybe the Taste My World DVD would be too babyish, but it seemed right on target for her. With unique visuals, music and dancing segments, the DVD engaged her right to the end.

The series also includes See My World, Touch My World and Hear My World, and won Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products seal of approval. The DVDs have also earned several positive reviews on

Would you like to win my copy of Smell My World? Leave a comment on this post between now and Monday, March 24, at midnight, EST. In that comment, let me know your child's favorite tv show/video.

Good luck!

Giveaway: Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA

UPDATE: OK, we have some winners.

• Cheryl

• Lesha

• Carmen

Please send your address to, and I'll get the coupons right out to you. And, congrats!

How would you like some free milk, cheese or yogurt? Yeah? I thought so!

I'm not talking about just any old milk, either. This is Horizon Organic Plus DHA milk. Not only is it free of antibiotics, growth hormones and pesticides, it has added Omega-3 fatty acids that promote heart, brain and eye health.

I have been taking omega-3 supplements for a decade, and it makes me so happy to see this healthy fat in products that our kids consume everyday. The milk doesn't have any kind of strange taste. We usually drink soymilk here, so I was curious to see how my 2 year old would react when I slipped her some Horizon milk. She took a few swigs and said, "This is STRAWBERRY milk." I guess that means she liked it.

Horizon sent me three coupons to give away to my readers. Each coupon will get you one free Horizon Organic product up to $4.99, excluding the gallon milk and 16 oz. butter. In addition to the 1/2 gallons and individual-sized milks, you can try Horizon's yogurt, cheese.... they have a whole line of dairy products you can check out here.

To get your coupon, leave a comment here between now and Saturday at midnight. I'll pick three winners Sunday morning. Good luck!
