Of course we also enjoy tasty treats and GourmetGiftBaskets.com has a great selection of foodie gifts to enhance summer fun or to treat hosts or hostesses throwing neighborhood pool parties or other celebrations. Here are some particularly exciting items that can be sent right to your door.

If they can arrive at my house in extremely hot central Florida looking perfect then they will arrive to you looking just as sweet. There was a frozen ice pack included in mine to keep them from melting and then protective packing material between it and the cake pops.
 
 
Balls of their delicious vanilla and chocolate cake are hand-dipped in milk, dark and white Belgian chocolate, placed in adorable mini ice cream cones, and then decorated to look just like ice cream. They are extremely moist and very rich. These really are as tasty as they look!

Ferocious Fluffity Written by Erica S. Perl & Illustrated by Henry Cole

~I received Ferocious Fluffity for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~

The bestselling team behind Chicken Butt! and Chicken Butt’s Back! has crafted another laugh-out-loud tale that’s sure to be a hit with any child who’s ever wanted a pet. Erica Perl’s rhymes and Henry Cole’s diverse classroom and cute animal character makes for the perfect classroom read-aloud in Ferocious Fluffity.

Ferocious Fluffity Written by Erica S. Perl & Illustrated by Henry Cole

Mr. Drake’s second grade class has a new class pet. Fluffity appears to be a cute and docile hamster—but the kids soon discover that she is not the cuddly pet they expected. From the moment her cage door opens, Fluffity becomes FEROCIOUS—biting and chasing everyone down the hall and into the library! Will the class be able to tame this beast and bring peace back to their school?

I remember a few different classroom pets from my childhood. Some fish, a few baby chicks incubated from eggs and even a hamster. It was always so fun to have a classroom pet! This book has us meeting what appears to be a cute little hamster named Fluffity. When the teacher is away and without permission the class takes her out and she moves from one to another giving them each a big BITE. They soon learn to get to know your pet before taking them out of the cage. A funny read as you see a tiny little fluff-ball chasing the kids around the school. Includes a happy ending of course. A fun addition to the classroom bookshelf or as a gift to a teacher.

The Magical Fantastical Fridge By Harlan Coben & Illustrated by Leah Tinari

~I received The Magical Fantastical Fridge for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~

Here is a cute new picture book where #1 New York Times Bestselling novelist Harlan Coben partners with a talented debut illustrator, Leah Tinari, in the funny adventure, The Magical Fantastical Fridge.

The Magical Fantastical Fridge By Harlan Coben Illustrated by Leah Tinari

It’s family dinner night, and Walden would like to be anywhere other than the kitchen in the middle of chores. Suddenly his wish is granted: He is magically swooped into one of his own drawings on the fridge, and finds himself on a one-of-a-kind adventure. After battling a crayon monster, he catches a plane ride into an old photo, escapes a troop of monkeys by cannonballing into an aquarium ticket, survives an ice-maker earthquake, and more. Kids will love studying the dynamic, comic-book-inspired illustrations in this zany, surprise-filled journey that culminates in a heartfelt appreciation of family.

I have read a ridiculous amount of children’s books over the years but I can honestly say this is the first picture book I have read where the character gets sucked into the items decorated on the fridge! A child’s imagination knows no bounds!!! After reading this book my girls made up their own story based off the pictures on our own fridge. Mainly photos but they laughed like crazy at the thought of jumping through each of them.

This is one adorable book that I think every young child will enjoy. The illustrations are fun and the story itself is unique. A great addition to any bookshelf!

Adorable Eco-friendly Cienta Shoes Are Machine Washable

~I received a pair of Cienta shoes for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
 
Shoes are something every kid needs and as a mom of two girls I search for the cutest ones I can that are still comfortable for my girls to wear. Cienta shoes are not only ridiculously cute but they smell good, are flexible (thus comfortable) and all the while being machine washable!
 
Adorable Eco-friendly Cienta Shoes Are Machine Washable
 
Let me repeat the best part…all of their canvas shoes are machine washable which is a HUGE plus for moms. Kids play, kids get dirty and when shoes are washable you can make them look like new again. To wash just remove the insole and wash them using cold water and let them air dry.
 
 
These shoes smell like blueberries! The natural scent is added to the rubber when they mold their outsoles and it smells oh so good!

All their products are “Made In Green” certified, do not use any glues or hazardous chemicals during production and their shoes are produced in a clean and environmentally friendly facility in a small town in Spain.

They offer a wide variety of cute and comfortable shoes in many styles for both boys and girls. You can use their store locator to find a store near you or you can purchase from one of many online retailers. I really like Cienta for being “dedicated to promoting the natural and correct development of children’s feet, the entire production and design process of Cienta is centered on quality and comfort, making use of only natural materials and the most advanced technology.” These are shoes I love putting on my daughter!
