#MelAndNikkiReview

The VTech Smart Wi-Fi Video Baby MonitorĀ is truly the must have gift for all new parents as it provides you with that extra peace of mind when your child is asleep. The video quality is above any quality that we have ever seen, even in the dark as it offers you top of the line light vision! This baby monitor is convenient as you can see your child right from your phone/tablet. Just like with many amazing things from the VTech brand, the monitor can grow with your baby.

You can easily place the monitor in a room where you can view your child to ensure that they are safe. Therefore, this monitor can work for children too. Did we mention the sound quality is amazing and you can program the monitor to record when motion is being detected. We also love the lullaby feature that it offers. It sure comes in handy when you are tired and are on the 20th lullaby to get your little one to sleep (been there and done that!). šŸ˜‰ It offers everything that a parent would want in a monitor and more. You can adjust the sound and you are even notified of the room’s temperature. So many amazing features and all at your fingertips! VTech has done it once again by taking everything a parent would want and deliver it with style. We do love the look and style of it and it goes so well in a baby or child’s room.

Our Rating

Therefore, it is no surprise that for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 10 stars out of 5! It is the must have technology for your home as it gives you amazing features and the peace of mind knowing you can easily see your baby during the night. I know as a parent, I spent many sleepless nights to check on my daughter to see if she was ok. If I had this baby monitor at my fingertips six years ago, I know that my night sleep would have been so much better. šŸ˜‰

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a new parent, then this is a great gift idea.Ā  The VTech Smart Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor will be available soon and it is exclusive to Babies’R’Us. If you would like to learn more, click here.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe | Perfect For Christmas

Gearing up our children for the start of school can be scary for both parents and child. I know that is how we felt before our little Nikki started school this year. But with all our prepping and teaching leading up to the first day made the transition a bit easier for the both of us.

VTech also recognizes the importance of the first day of school. To help preschoolers for this important milestone, VTech has developed theĀ Preschool LearningĀ series of interactive toys. One of these toys in the series is the Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe and we are delighted to share our thoughts on it for all of you!

The Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe features an interactive desktop with activity cards that introduce letters, numbers, music, colors and much more. Extend playtime with additional activity packs that each focus on a specific curriculum (each sold separately). Flip up the desktop and create a masterpiece using the art station or chalkboard. For more fun, play with the toy telephone or listen to fun tunes on the music player. The possibilities are endless!


Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe Features

There are so many wonderful features that we briefly touched on above but now let us break it down for you. šŸ˜‰

#MelAndNikkiReview

We absolutely love theĀ Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe!Ā This activity desk has so much to offer little ones and it is a great stepping stone into the next milestone of learning. There are so many fun activities and options available to provide hours of fun. Nikki’s favorite part is the ability to transform the activity desk to an art station. We find it brings out her artistic side but also encourages her to try and write out the letters that she is learning. Nikki also loves using the activity cards to learn. We are delighted that with the activity cards she has learned so much more. The learning that she does with the Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe gives her that extra confidence that every child needs. Therefore, we give theĀ Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe 5+++ stars out of 5!

We love it so much that we have placed theĀ Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe on our recommended list! It offers diverse learning with an interactive touch which makes it so much more fun for any child. VTech has truly developed an amazing toy that encompasses all that a child and a parent would hope for. It allows a child to have fun, learn and be creative all in one. Couldn’t ask for anything better!

We are sure it will light up the hearts and minds of your little one.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

If you have a young child at home who loves to watch PJ Masks then I am sure you were singing along to the quote above. I know that I sure was as I was writing it! šŸ˜‰ PJ Masks is a popular one in our household and Nikki’s favourite is Owlette. I can’t blame her since Owlette is one super cool hero!

When we received theĀ Super Owlette Learning WatchĀ by VTech, Nikki was over the moon with excitement.

“It’s time to be a hero!”

TheĀ Super Owlette Learning Watch is full of great learning fun for children. This watch not only tells you the time but it comes with some other amazing features! You have an alarm, timer and stopwatch functions and did I mention games?! TheĀ Super Owlette Learning Watch also includes built-in games to reinforce learning of numbers, shapes and counting as you go into the night to save the day with Catboy, Owlette and Gekko!

Games Breakdown

We want to breakdown the game choices with this lovely watch as it was one of Nikki’s favorite features!

Gekko-Mobile Pursuit –Ā Gekko is driving the Gekko-mobile to track down the location of Romeo’s mobile laboratory. Use the shape clues to work out which was Romeo has gone.

Running Math –Ā Owlette is chasing Luna Girl through the streets and Luna Girl has hidden inside a building. A math problem will be shown on the screen with two answers displayed on two different doors. Choose the correct door to help Owlette find Luna Girl.

#MelAndNikkiReview

TheĀ Super Owlette Learning WatchĀ brings fun right to your wrist with the learning games and time features. It provides hours of entertainment and did I mention the learning piece?! We really love the ability to have fun and learn at the same time.Ā We also love the automatic power off function as it helps preserve the battery life. As parents we can really appreciate that money saving option as purchasing batteries can get costly.

We adore this new fun watch and as I wrap up this product review I hear my little one in the background. “Let’s go Catboy and Gekko! Let’s catch Night Ninja!” That is how I know it is much enjoyed. For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give itĀ 5 hoots out of 5!Ā

Magical unicorns, learning and bright colors. All this can be heard when my daughter plays pretend. It truly sounds like a wonderful world that she has created. Nikki loves to play with toys that encompass her favorite things and she got just that from Vtech!

We are delighted to present,Ā Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn,Ā on the #MelAndNikkiReview from VTech.


The Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn is an enchanting unicorn that features three play modes of play, colourful charms and a light-up horn. This fun toy also has English and French options to extend the learning to a second language (love that!).

Play Modes

When we have more than option to play with a toy, it makes it worth it for us parents as it gives children endless possibilities to what they can do. The Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn has three activity options.

There is theĀ Charms and Colours. The first option with this activity is by placing a charm on any of the three Magic Heart Recognition Points to hear about colours, beginning letters and fun pharses. The second option is to press the Blue Heart Button to hear questions about the charms, then place the charms on one of the Magic Heart Recognition Points to answer the question.

The next activity isĀ Charms and Colours in French. The first option is to place a charm on any of the three Magic Heart Recognition Points to hear colours and phrases in French. The second option is to press the Blue Heart Button or squeeze the Magical Tail to hear fun responses about the unicorn in French.

The last activity isĀ Music Time.Ā Who doesn’t like a little music?! We know we love music in our home. There are two options with this activity. The first option is to place a Charm on any of the three Magic Heart Recognition Points to hear fun sounds. The second option is to press the Blue Heart Button to play melodies, or squeeze the Magical Tail to play songs, then press the Necklace Button or place any of the Seven Charms on a Magic Heart Recognition Point to add sounds to the melodies and songs. *The Parent’s Guide that comes with the toy provides the song lyrics to help you sing-a-long with your child.

#MelAndNikkiReview

To say that we love Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn might be an understatement! Nikki adores playing with it especially the Charms and Colour mode. I love the education piece to it. We love how it uses shapes and colours to help the child learn. As parents we have the option of adjusting the volume which is always a great bonus. We also love the feature of the automatic shut off. To preserve the battery life, Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn will automatically power down after several minutes of no input. To me this is magical!

Nikki wanted to do a video to show us how it works and what she thought of it. Check it out in the video below and enjoy! These videos are special as Nikki doesn’t do them often but maybe she will since she has a natural act to do them. šŸ˜‰

As you heard in the video, Nikki gives Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn a rating of 5 out of 5! It surely lives up to its enchanting reputation and makes playtime extra fun. To purchase your very own Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn, click here.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
