HGG|| Cloud B Frankie The Fox Review @cloud_b


* Disclosure: Party of 5 received samples in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.*

When Amelia was an infant we had the Cloud B Gentle Giraffe to go on her stroller to help soothe her to sleep while we were out. We loved the different sounds that it played as she drifted off. Not to mention that it was the perfect size for portability.

Cloud B has juts come out with a few new adorable animals this Holiday Season such as Frankie the Fox!

Just look at that cute little face! Frankie The Fox makes the perfect gift for a baby shower, Christmas, or just because. 

Features Include:

Plays soothing sound options such as

Sunny Days
Forrest Walk

Sound Box Timer Features: 

Two sleep timer options 23 and 45 minutes
Velcro tab for easy attachment to the crib
Requires 2 AA batteries that are included

Having something to soothe Amelia to sleep has been a godsend. While she is a relatively easy child to put to bed there are nights where she likes some soothing music to help put her to sleep. 

While Frankie The Fox isn't technically one of the "on the go" friends he is the perfect size to attach to a stroller or to bring in the car for a long car ride to comfort your child. Not to mention he is super soft and cuddly. Amelia likes to take hers off of the crib anyhow so Frankie The Fox is always ready for our next adventure! 

You can purchase Cloud B Frankie The Fox for $30.95 at retailers nationwide

HGG|| ANIMALZ Headphones Review @MyReTrak



*Disclosure: Party of 5 and Counting received samples in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. *

We are always on the go, my poor girls are forever in the car. Thankfully we have an entertainment system in our mini van to keep them occupied most of the time. However, I do not always want to listen to Frozen for the 9,579,387,578th time! To solve that issue I can plug in the ReTrak AnimalZ Retractable Headphones for the girls and we all are happy :)

Jam Bunneez is a super cute pink bunny who is ready for use right out of the box. You only need to make  adjustments to your childs head.


  • Volume-Limiting Technology; 85 db protects young ears
  • Over-Ear Design; nothing enters the ear canal
  • Tangle-Free Storage; pull cable to extend and retract
  • Kid-Friendly Design and Durability
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Ages: 3+

Skate Monkeez has the exact features of the Jam Bunneez except in Monkey fashion!

My girls love that they have their own headphones in the car and can watch a movie when I want to listen to the radio and not Frozen! 

I love that they are tangle free, this way I don't have to listen to the girls scream and cry that their headphones are tangled in a mess and they cant get them to work! 

ANIMALZ Headphones come in 6 different animals and retail for $24.99. They can be found at most retailers nationwide.
