Ten Darling Sleepyville Critters Purses for Kids

I know a lot of my little ones are starting to get old enough to where they want to carry all sorts of things. In fact, most of them just want to copy auntie and have a purse of their own. I don't entirely understand this concept, since I would love to get rid of my purse, but that would be a nightmare! I found some cute Sleepyville Critters purses that your kids would enjoy too.

One of my nieces has a crazy owl obsession. She would love this Owl Canvas Crossbody Bag. Its dimensions are 13" x 12.5" x 0.1" which is a fairly decent sized purse. There are a few zippers and pockets so she could even accessorize as she pleases. It's also very stylish with the floral background!

This is for my younger audience. The Premium Leatherette Cat Shoulder Bag with Bow would be a good starter purse. It measures approximately 7" X 1" X 8" and has one pocket and one zipper. It almost reminds me of the Miyazaki movie Kiki's Delivery service. This is adorable!

I can't contain how cute the Baby Beaver Holding a Star Shoulder Crossbody Bag is! Otter's are becoming a thing again so I can really see one of the kids using this. It's made with vinyl so it's easy to clean and it's not huge.

Panda's never go out of style! One of my nieces in particular loves panda's and this Sleepy Eyed Panda Bear Canvas Cross Body Shoulder Bag would be perfect. The blue and black flowers in the background are adorable. The strap is also adjustable and durable, perfect for my rambunctious kids.

My nephews and nieces love sloths. It's a sloth phenomenon out there, actually. This Baby Sloth Shoulder Crossbody Bag is great for all the kids. Again, this would be an easy cleanup since it's made out of vinyl and doesn't have a lot of pockets. I love it!

I might want this little purse for myself! This cute kitty Alicia Crossbody Bag would be perfect for an evening to a play or a little dinner date. It is made from velvet which won't be easy to clean, but it's still very cute. Also the strap isn't adjustable it's made with a chain. I figure getting this would be great practice for when my nieces decide to get a nicer purse. I love this little purse, I think it's my favorite!

Look at more of the Sleepyville Critters purses on Amazon. They are totally worth it! There might be a better animal selection for your kids! Let me know down below in the comments what you think!

Making Dinnertime Fun at Auntie's House with FunBites Cutters

Sometimes my nieces and nephews think cooking is a chore. There are days where it can be so difficult to get them to do anything! When I discovered they enjoy creating their own food masterpieces I realized these FunBites cutouts would be perfect!

The Green Square Food Cutter would be awesome to make little cube cheese or even little square meat slices. The food cutter makes 12 cubes or squares. It has curved blades that easily cut through food with rocking motion. This measures about 6 x 3.8 x 1.8 inches as a whole. It's BPA free and most importantly it is dishwasher safe!

Not only can you make little squares, but the Blue Triangles cutter will make different sized triangles. I think this would be the best for making little Bento designs. You can have 10 different kinds of triangles in this cutter and measures 6 x 3.8 x 1.5 inches as a whole. Made in the USA, BPA free, and dishwasher safe.

Since Valentine's Day is coming up I feel like these FunBites Hearts would be so much fun. These cutouts make little hearts, half circles, and triangles. This was made in the USA. It is BPA free and top-shelf dishwasher safe. It measures about 6 x 3.8 x 1.8 inches.

Yet another thing I need, I can't pass up this Minions Food Cutter. If I decide to buy all four that means I have all the necessary shapes to create a masterpiece with all the kids. Also, who doesn't love minions? This measures 6 x 3.8 x 1.8 inches, BPA free, and dishwasher safe.

Or you can get Set of Three - Green Squares, Red Hearts & Orange Triangles!

Come take a look at FunBites and all their cutters. Look at other cutters on Amazon too! There's lot's of cool stuff to make cooking fun!

Kung Fu Panda 3 Plushie Friends

In case you haven't heard, the Kung Fu Panda series is coming out with the third movie on the 29th of this month! First, take a look at the trailer:

Kung Fu Panda 3 on IMDb

I'm not going to lie to you, I have been looking forward to taking one of my nieces or nephews to see this movie for like a year now. Since I love this movie so much I wanted to make it a huge deal for the kids. I think it would be fun for them to bring along their favorite Kung Fu Panda plushie to the theater! Here are a few newer Kung Fu Panda 3 Plushies on Amazon I'd like to show you.

This is a Kung Fu Panda 5" Plush of Po. This is definitely my favorite plushie. I think it's the most adorable.

The most accurate of the plushies I believe is this Kung Fu Panda 3 Po 10" Plush Figure.

Another cute plushie is the 8 Inch Kung Fu Panda Stuffed Animal.

My niece really loves Tigress. The Kung Fu Panda 3 Master Tigress 13" Plush Figure has some awesome markings and is probably more accurate to the movie.

Personally, I like this 4 Inch Plush Figure of Tigress the best. She's small, but she's so cute!

And this Kung Fu Panda 3 Master Shifu 10" Plush Figure is my all time favorite.

I might have to get Master Shifu for myself while the kids get Tigress or Po! Take a look at Kung Fu Panda 3 Plushies on Amazon or other Kung Fu Panda merchandise while you're there. I think a panda party might be in order. We could watch the first and second movie before going out! Tell me what you think down below in the comments, Aunties!

Zootopia Coloring, Sticker, and Other Fun Books

I never even heard of this movie until I was at a movie the other night. When I watched the trailer I was practically in tears it was so funny! Watch it for yourself!

I have a feeling this is going to be a huge hit. My nieces and nephews are going to absolutely LOVE this movie! It might end up being better than Frozen! When I take them to Kung Fu Panda 3 I know they will see the Zootopia trailer and it'll be love at first sight. I know I won't hear the end of it. I think keeping them busy with books would be a great way to pass the time before they see the movie. I checked out Amazon and there are a bunch of Zootopia Books to choose from.

I love coloring books and I think Disney Zootopia Spirit and Strength Coloring Book would be a fun activity. Personally, I enjoy coloring with my nieces and nephews so it turns into a group project. This coloring book has 48 pages of exciting scenes or characters waiting to come to life. It only comes with four chunky crayons, but if you're like me you already have enough crayons for everyone!

The Disney Zootopia Adventures Paint Palette Book could shake things up a bit! I like crayons, because they aren't as messy as paints, but these are really fun too. I feel like painting really helps inspire them and it's a whole new motion than coloring. This would be really fun during the summer time. There are 128 pages and the paint pallet is included.

This book of Disney Zootopia Sticker Scenes includes 12 pages and over 40 stickers to enjoy. This is a favorite in my family since they love playing make believe with stickers. This book is great for me if I need to do some work while I'm the kids are visiting.

Sometimes I take my nieces and nephews on long car rides. This Zootopia Read-Along Storybook & CD would be a fun way to kill the time. I actually think read-alongs are really exciting for them. I know my nephew has developed a curiosity about words just from read-along books. He asks so many questions and always wants to know why! I think Zootopia would be a fun filled story for him.

The classic Zootopia Little Golden Book is cute. Your nieces or nephews might want to just read on their own, which is totally fine! Or maybe you'd like to read together before bedtime. This book is about 24 pages. I love the Golden Books anyway, so I'll probably just add this one to my collection!

Fun Puffy Stickers from Melissa and Doug

I have many kids in my life that I really wish I could see more often. I think of them quite a bit and I always want to buy them things! I enjoy spoiling them, but it is difficult if they are across the country. These Melissa and Doug Puffy Stickers Play Sets are always great to give the little ones as random gifts. I thoroughly enjoy playing with them when I give them these sets too!

Animals are always a hit with the kids. This Chipmunk House Puffy Sticker Play Set is precious. I know that all of my nieces and nephews would love this set just because there is a family of Chipmunks. Also, they love playing house which would make this one extra fun!

Honestly, how could you wrong with this Princess Puffy Sticker Play Set? All of my nieces love princesses, especially after watching Frozen and the Princess and the Frog. Even I would have a hard time not playing with this sticker set. Mixing and matching all the dresses and accessories would be really fun!

One of my nephews absolutely loves pirates, which is why I gave him this Pirate Puffy Sticker Playset. I think he will like that he can decorate a pirate ship and a desert island. The pirates can also be dressed up in different outfits!

Can't you see the Pirates and this Mermaid Puffy Sticker Playset put together? They could make one giant pirate and mermaid scene! The mermaids can also have different colored fins and outfits. I really wish I had this when I was a kid... I love mermaids!

For all your fashionistas out there, this Puffy Sticker Activity Book - Day of Glamour would be a perfect fit. It's a bummer that one of my nieces has outgrown these, because it would have been perfect for her. This would be a great inspiration for little fashion designers.

Another I think would be a favorite is the Sticker Activity Book - Riding Club! Like I said before, my kids love animals. I know a few of them have even mentioned they would like to take riding classes. This would spark the imagination and at the very least they could pretend. If I had the chance, I might even make a day out of it and take them to riding classes and give them this little book to go along with the trip.

Half the time I can't even pick one to send off to my nieces, so this Set of 3 Puffy Stickers would make my life easier!

The Set of 4 Puffy Stickers would also suffice and I could even keep one at home for the nieces and nephews that come over and aren't so far away!

I hope you enjoyed these cute Melissa and Doug Puffy Stickers Play Sets. It's a great easy present to send via mail, but also they are incredibly fun. Let me know what you think aunties!
