Mom Central was invited to a media event to cover the opening of Legoland Discovery Center. All opinions are our own. My four-year-old is a girly girl. Something about the insistence of tutus, tiaras and impromptu renditions of Frozen’s “Let It Go” in the supermarket aisles makes me scratch my head and wonder how she got this way. So when we were invited to go check out the new Legoland Discovery Center in Somerville, MA, I worried she might be bored. Sure, we play with Legos at home, but only the pink ones.

 7-inch Swiss Diamond Fry Pan
Mom Central received a complimentary 7-inch Fry Pan from Swiss diamond in order to facilitate this review. All of the views expressed are our own. If the brand Swiss Diamond sounds familiar, it’s likely due to its reputation of having patented a nonstick cookware technology created with real diamond crystals. When I was given their 7-inch fry pan to try, I decided to put this award-winning nonstick surface to the test, by cooking oil-free. The 7-inch Swiss Diamond Fry Pan sautés ingredients, and cooks up side dishes and small meals with ease. It also moves effortlessly from stovetop to oven, so you’ve only got one pan to wash when you’re done! Unlike lesser-quality pans on the market, it’s completely free of potentially-harmful PFOA chemicals and is constructed with pressure-cast aluminum for even cooking and a long life.
Pierce’s Scaly Adventures
As we move toward full-scale back-to-school season, kids soon will begin more traditional, in-class academics. Yet another approach to learning takes place each week on Pierce’s Scaly Adventures, a television show where the Curren family interacts with some of the most exotic animals in America. Inspired by their son’s love for all things reptile, the Currens – son Pierce, Mom Tanya, and Dad Rick – decided to share that passion with kids across the country and launched Pierce’s Scaly Adventures. The show offers educational information on a variety of animals, their habitats, and conservation-related issues, while also showing how much we can learn by simply getting outdoors.
Stainless Steel Square Griddle from 360 Cookware
Mom Central received a complimentary Square Griddle from 360 Cookware in order to write this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. As fall draws near, my family grows busier every day, and I need a pan that I can rely on for when I need to make a quick meal in a rush, whether that be breakfast or a late dinner. Even with the return-to-routine that autumn brings, finding the time to whip up creative and tasty dishes often eludes me. The Stainless Steel Square Griddle from 360 Cookware offers a safe, even and efficient cooking surface for almost any meal, busy, weekday time constraints be gone! This versatile, square griddle has become my go-to for full weekend breakfasts for the family, with the gorgeous, stainless steel surface perfect for even-heat cooking across its 11-inch dimensions. With this pan, I easily cook up bacon, eggs, and even French toast in just a matter of minutes.
Mavea Elemaris XL Water Filtration Pitcher
Mom Central received a complimentary sample of the Mavea Water Filtration Pitcher in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. We drink a lot of water at our house, which means we need a water filtration system that can stand up to our demand, and not stand empty after it makes it only halfway around the dinner table! The Mavea’s Elemaris System offers a sleek, reliable, and intelligent design. This water-filtration pitcher looks like a stylish serving piece, begging not to be shoved in the back of your refrigerator, but rather brought to the dinner table for your family and guests to enjoy. I’ve used other filtration pitchers before, and my least favorite aspect lies in having to refill them by taking the entire system apart. With an automatic pour-through lid, the Mavea leaves no watery mess on your counter, and its Smart Meter status screen right on the lid tells you the condition of the filter.
Bialetti Aeternum Ceramic Cookware
Mom Central received a complimentary Bialetti Aeternum 11” Deep Sauté Pan in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. If our crowded kitchen cabinets have taught us anything, it’s how difficult it can be to find reliable cookware that delivers great results. Known for its high-quality cookware, Bialetti’s Aeternum Cookware line proves no different, adhering to exceptional standards and providing an easy and eco-friendly cooking experience. The Bialetti 11” Covered Deep Sauté Pan is a reliable staple you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again.
iBN27 Wireless Speaker
Mom Central received a sample of the iHome iBN27 rechargeable stereo speaker in order to write this review. All of the views expressed are our own. Back-to-school can be of the most exciting times of the year and one of the most hectic. With our music-loving house bustling with final preparations, it’s hard to find a speaker as mobile as my family is come August! From bopping to tunes in the backyard while grilling, to setting the mood for the day at breakfast, to playing soothing sounds while mom soaks in the tub, portable is key. If your family also likes to have a little background music, add the iHome iBN27 Wireless Speaker to your back-to-school shopping list.
