Stephs Cheers and Jeers received samples mentioned in this post in exchange for being featured on our site.

Baketivity Kids Baking Subscription Box:

Baketivity is a wonderful way to bond with your child while baking. Each kit features a fun kid-friendly recipe and pre-measured ingredients. Each box can be adapted for all ages ranging from 4-10. Baketivity offers a few different options to purchase:

Subscribe Monthly: $32.95 a month, $92.85 for 3 months, $175.00 for 6 months, and $311.40 for a year. You can also purchase single kits and Baketivity makes a wonderful gift!


My kids and I had a blast doing this kit, they loved getting hands-on and I love that all the ingredients were measured out. My stepdaughter loves helping me in the kitchen so this is wonderful for kids who are interested in baking.



Blue’s Clues & You! Story Time With Blue!

Celebrate 25 Years of Blue’s Clues with this special 2-disc DVD set. I honestly can’t believe it’s been 25 years and I can’t wait to share my love for Blue’s Clues with my son. This set is jammed packed with fun stories including storytime with Blue, a pajama party, a treasure hunt and so much more. This DVD set is perfect for fans of all ages, it was so nostalgic for us to watch.

You can purchase this DVD on Amazon for $9.99.


This was SO nostalgic for me and I love that my son and I can enjoy watching this together just like I did when I was a kid. He is a little young(almost 6 months old) but he seemed to love it regardless.


Excavating Adventures:

This unique subscription box allows you to discover up to ten real scientific specimens. You get to discover each item by actually excavating it. They offer a variety of different themes such as gemstone, dinosaur discovery, caves and cavern crystals, and more. This is truly unlike any other product and best of all, you can purchase individual kits or you can subscribe monthly.


While I listed this under gifts for kids, Excavating Adventures is wonderful for all ages. I have a small gemstone collection and I found that Excavating Adventures is a wonderful way to build my collection. My kids also LOVED the excavating concept and we had fun matching the gemstones and learning more about them all.

They offer items in a wide price range and subscriptions start at as low as $5.99 a month.


The Dirty Cookie

The Dirty Cookie offers DIY cookie shot kits. For those who have never heard of cookie shots, they are edible shot glasses made out of cookies, that are perfect for milk, ice cream, and more. Their DIY kits are themed around holidays, birthdays, and more

What caught my attention about The Dirty Cookie is their Shot for Education program. A portion of every purchase is donated to their partnered non-profits that help students receive a higher level of learning.


I received a kit that contained 6 cookie shots, the flavors included were 2 chocolate chip, 2 double chocolate, 1 churro, and 1 red velvet. My kids had a blast decorating them but they loved eating them! The Dirty Cookie is unique as well as tasty!

They are currently taking preorders for their Thanksgiving cookie shots as well as Hanukkah and Christmas.

Prices range from $29.99-$59.99 depending on the quantity purchased.

It features a natural bath towel, a crotchet elephant wooden teether, a bracelet wooden teether, a hello world round card, and a wooden brush. Sole Kiddy also offers an array of other newborn gift boxes as well as teethers, rattles, and more.


Thomas LOVES the crotchet elephant wooden teether, he is currently teething and this is the only teether he is interested in. This is a great gift box that I would have loved to receive as a baby shower gift.

You can purchase this kit for $45.95.

I am very happy with the products I received from NUK, I find their products to be high quality and designed for both parents and babies.

Our son Thomas LOVES both the crochet toy and wooden rattle, he is currently teething so he chews on both. Their products are  Latex Free, Nitrosamine Free, Phthalate Free, BPA Free, PVC Free so I don’t worry about him putting them into his mouth. We went with a Woodland theme so the Elk was a wonderful option!

We opted for the 4ft x 6ft in Moonstone(grey) and visitors to our house are impressed because they think it’s a rug. I love how easy to clean the mat is and Thomas loves to crawl around on it.

My kids love both Kwik Stix and Magic Stix, they make a fantastic stocking stuffer for your kiddos and I love the Magic Stix Markers the most because they are guaranteed to not dry out.


Bath Kneeler by BathMoment:

This Bath Kneeler by BathMoment is designed to save both your knees and your elbows by providing gentle padding for when you are bathing your child. Their product features 1.5-inch padding that is also memory foam. The Bath Kneeler is covered in neoprene so it’s waterproof but you can also easily throw it in the washer. It features 2 mesh pockets on the inner flap as well as 2 mesh pockets on the outer flap. It also features suction cups and a rubberized bottom so both pieces stay in place.

You can purchase this Bath Kneeler for $9.99 which is a steal!


I am not going to lie, before using this item I thought bath kneelers were a bit of a gimmick and now I wish I had purchased one from the start. It saves my knees and elbows and makes bathing my son much more comfortable.


Nooie Cam 360:

The Nooie Cam 360 is such a versatile camera, it features automatic motion tracking that means you won’t miss anything! It can pan, tilt, features two-way audio, night vision, and can easily pick up sound as well as motion. The quality is ultra-clear and honestly, I was a bit skeptical about the Nooie Camera 360 as it’s only $49.99 but after using it for just a day I was impressed. It’s easily accessible through the Nooie app which is easy to navigate.


We use it mainly as a baby monitor and the quality is INSANE! The sound quality is also wonderful and we love the motion/sound detection which automatically sends updates to our phones. I think for $49.99 the Nooie Camera 360 is a steal and offers so much that similar products don’t.


My First Day as a Junior Park Ranger: Kids will learn about different park jobs and careers

This 160-page chapter book is unique, it is complete with a soundtrack! The book features beautiful illustrations to help bring the text to life, an audiobook with delightful performances of each character, and an album of songs (that can be accessed through QR codes). The book helps teach important lessons such as believing in oneself, not judging too quickly, everyone should be treated equally, etc.

I think this book is not only adorable it’s unique! I love the positive messages and my stepdaughter is going to be 10 so I think this is a wonderful book for her to read with her young siblings as it has some great messages and is great for different age ranges.


A big thank you to all our sponsors and I hope everyone has a blessed holiday season!
