Lazoo Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.

Mommy and I like looking for new and unique products to bring to you my readers. You know, the ones that you may have known existed but never really paid attention to. The ones that you may have also never seen before. Well mommy and I think that we have found a hidden gem.

Lazoo is a company that will be sure to delight your little one. There is a little of everything to choose from. Whether its books, clothing, accessories, plush toys or even wall decals there's something there for your little one. There are even apps to choose from for the ones who are into technology like I am. And one of our favorite thing about Lazoo is their activity section. Mommy isn't very good at doing crafts but Lazoo always have something that she wants to try. You'll find some rather interesting activity that you would want to do with your little one as well.  

Now Lazoo is currently having a sale on all their activity books for the month of October. There's still time to pick something up for your little one.

Lazoo decided to send me a few of their products to review and I am so happy that they did because I love them all. First let me go through what I got.

I got a Junko Backpack that is as soft as it looks. It is made of a velvety material and is very padded so it is very comfortable. It has a zippered opening and can fit a few things in there for when you're going on a short trip. Mommy put a few diapers in mine when we last went out. I got quite a few compliments on my backpack as well. It sure is unique and mommy had to tell others where we got it. The straps are adjustable and if you decide to take them off and stuff it it will make a great pillow pet. It also comes with a little key ring attached as you can see.

Now if that wasn't enough I also got a matching Junko Plush to go along with my Junko Backpack.

Now I have always said that I want to become a ballerina and now I have my very own ballerina doll. She's 12 inches tall, the perfect height for me to walk around with and to stuff in my Junko Backpack. She is totally bendable and I can bend her arms and her legs in ballerina positions. She is also washable, something that I love with my toys especially since I get them dirty a lot. She is also pretty soft so if I decide to hit someone with it (my stinky brothers), it wouldn't hurt.

Now this next item the Lets Color Book is a hit with me.

Now I think I'm an artist already. I love to color, just ask mommy. My Picasso paintings are all throughout the house. Granted they're going to be covered over with paint soon but for now everyone who comes to visit loves seeing my artistic work. Lets Color is a completely different coloring book and not your typical coloring book. Its brings out the artist in your little one and works their imagination. Who knew coloring could be so much fun? There's also an app for my Lets Color book that is also available in the iTunes store.
