This summer, however, has been full of inclement weather. We have gotten a ton of rain, and it has left my children with a mild case of cabin fever on the "yucky" days. After all, I can't just send the kids out to play when tornado sirens are sounding and rain is coming down in sheets. They may think it sounds like fun, but I am not trying to have my littles swept off to the land of Oz, no matter how much they beg!
My little ones, Sophie and Xander, seem to need a bit of distracting when the more severe storms hit. They get easily frightened by the loud, clapping thunder and bright bursts of lightning.
Thankfully, this is when we spend time with Uncle Milton. No, I don't really have an Uncle Milton. Uncle Milton is an awesome children's brand that offers kids about a million different ways to have fun. Whether it's outdoor play, room decor, or bedtime magic, this brand has got you covered.
Haven't heard of Uncle Milton before? No worries! I'd love to take this opportunity to introduce you!

Our Review :
When you whip this toy into the sky, kids will enjoy a streaking, multi-colored light show plus pretty authentic fireworks sound effects! It's a lot of fun on a nice summer evening! I would definitely recommend this for outdoor use, since my kids almost took out a ceiling fan by playing with it in our family room. Oops!
I know this sounds like a silly concern, but a couple of years ago, my daughter actually ingested a button battery she found in a toy, and this could have been fatal. She got VERY lucky since the battery passed right to her stomach and came out in her diaper a few days later. The fact is, this could have easily killed my child, and whenever I see button batteries in children's toys, my heart sinks a little.
Button batteries are extremely dangerous around small kids, so I would have loved to see a much more secure housing for these batteries. This is NOT a toy that I leave where the kids can reach it, and we ONLY play with it when adults are present to closely supervise. That being said, we do have fun with this toy as a family. I don't want to discourage anyone from purchasing it, just please be aware of the possible risks.
The next product I'd like to talk about is the Wild Walls Puppy Stars! This puppy-themed room decor brings the glitz and glamour of the "Hollywoof" red carpet to your child's room! Of course it's not Angelina and Brad that are being stalked by the Pup-perazzi, it's a cast of absolutely adorable dogs!
This fun set includes both wall-decals and a projector, which is powered by 3 AA batteries. (The batteries are even included! Yay!) It was very easy to set up. We just stuck the wall decals to a bare wall, and mounted the projector underneath. This took about 5 minutes, total.
