2 Kid-Friendly Apps My Family LOVES

I get really frustrated with kid's apps sometimes. I was so excited when I got my Kindle Fire to put some apps for the kids on there. Unfortunately it seemed like they all had advertisements. My kids always end up clicking on them accidentally. All I need is my daughter making a bunch of random purchases! The kids don't get a lot of screen time, but it's fun every so often. Our two favorite apps are both made by Sago Mini--

 Both my four year old and my two year old play this Sago Mini Friends. You get to chose an animal and then walk around to the other animals homes. At each house there is a little activity you do inside. My kids favorite is feeding the animals and dressing the animals up. It is super cute. 

This Sago Mini Ocean Swimmer game is very fun too. At first my kids had a hard time figuring out how to get the fish to interact with the other characters, after a little trial and error they got the hang of it. There is a lot more to do on this app than it originally looks like. There are lots of areas to explore and characters to meet. There are lots of silly things to do.

They are both usually priced at $2.99. However if you keep and eye on free apps, sometimes you will see these.

Urbini Starri 4-1 Crib and Changing Table

I recently got the chance to try out two amazing baby products!! I was sent both products to try, but opinions are my own. I would without a doubt purchase these for myself.

When we found out we were expecting our third child, I knew right away I wanted to replace our old crib. It had seen years of use. I loved the look of some of the spendier designer cribs, but not the price. I was delighted to find everything I wanted in the Urbini Starri crib. This looks and feels like a high-end designer crib. It is modern, but classic enough to fit many decors. The biggest draw for me though, was the functionality. This crib will last our newest addition for years to come. It can convert to a toddler bed, a daybed and a headboard. I am really excited about the middle mattress setting. This crib actually has three mattress settings- top, middle and bottom. Our old crib only adjusted from the top to the bottom. The crib comes in oil black, espresso and warm grey. I went with the warm grey color. In person it is very similar to what is pictured online. Putting the crib together went pretty fast, my husband had it assembled in no time. It really pulled the nursery together. Seeing the crib assembled in our little ones room was so exciting! I was pretty surprised that this came from Walmart, and at such a reasonable price! Find it here.

Our newest addition has a fairly small nursery. I considered not having a changing table at all in there because of the lack of space. When I saw this changing table, I knew it would work for us. It’s not too huge and adds a lot of storage to our space. The two additional shelves are the perfect place for storage baskets. I can keep diapers, wipes and all the necessities neatly tucked away. The changing table is very sturdy and I think it would look great in any nursery. It comes in warm gray, oil black and white. I have the warm grey color. I was really unsure what this color would look like. In person the color is very similar to how it is pictured online. I actually assembled this myself, which is saying something. It took me about a half and hour. Find this adorable changing table here.

I look forward to seeing new products Urbini baby comes out with. I was so impressed by the style and quality of both the crib and the changing table.
