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.

365 vegan smoothies
Mom Central received a copy of the 365 Vegan Smoothies book to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. After being inspired by some of my colleagues who have recently been cutting back on their sugar and dairy intake, I began swapping out my former sugar-laden breakfast choices with healthier, all-natural smoothie varieties. I used a variety of recipes that incorporated nuts, greens, fruit and more and loved starting my day with a healthy dose of pure fruits and veggies! However, working off of the same few recipes was starting to get to be a bit repetitive, and I was so excited to discover the new book 365 Vegan Smoothies by Kathy Patalsky. There’s literally a smoothie for every day in this new book. Each month is broken down to focus on healthy, seasonal ingredients that keep your smoothie routine and foods fresh and vibrant.
SIMON SWIPE
Mom Central received a SIMON SWIPE game in order to facilitate this review. All of the thoughts expressed are our own. Some of my fondest memories come from family game night – throwing Monopoly pieces, accusing my brother of cheating in Scrabble, laughing at Catch Phrase – something about games unites the family, no matter what age. Perhaps one of the most challenging and frustratingly fun games that we all grew up with is SIMON, the memory game of a simple four colors that entranced us for hours. Now, we can throw the frustrating SIMON back into our game night rotation. Hasbro offers the nostalgia of the classic game with a new twist, offering SIMON SWIPE. This modern take on the classic recall game is based on a smooth swipe action (not so different from the motion to unlock your iPhone!) With a sleek new design, we battle a SIMON that is high-tech and modern but still has the same four colors and the same challenge: remembering whether or not to hit the green or the red button next.
JOHNSON'S® Baby
Disclosure: Johnson’s Baby is a client of Mom Central Consulting. Each new baby begins life with a promise from Mom – a promise to love, care, and cuddle, as well as to create a happy, healthy, and peaceful home. We’ll do anything for our babies – rock them endlessly so they’ll wind down gently into their afternoon nap, take them for midnight drives to soothe their colic, and read story after story so they’ll ease into a deep, restful sleep. Despite our boundless love for our babies and our enduring efforts each day, few things prove more worrisome than the early days of motherhood. We have so many goals and so many wishes we hope to fulfill – yet worry can rise up so easily. Are we doing the right thing? Have we learned to decipher what each cry and whimper means?
AEROSOLES Magician
Mom Central received complimentary AEROSOLES sandals to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Summer is filled with bright colors, exciting prints, and bold colors. I love mixing our favorite prints and patterns, but often have to be careful with my corresponding footwear! I was excited to discover a few pairs of neutral heels from AEROSOLES that are perfect for the summer season. While stylish on their own, they’re neutral enough to complement my favorite summer looks.
TakeYa Iced Tea Bellini
Mom Central received complimentary Takeya Iced Tea samples in order to facilitate this review. All of the views expressed are our own. After our first review of the TakeYa Iced Tea System, the product became a necessity at the Mom Central office. With fresh-brewed iced tea every day, we have battled the humidity and heat of the Boston summer with a variety of delicious flavors. This summer, TakeYa offers two delicious tastes in Hibiscus Pomegranate and Tropical Black Iced Tea. We already know that TakeYa has delicious flavors and a unique, quick way to brew iced tea. This summer, TakeYa offers us an experience, providing ideas for DIY recipes and other adorable ways to make your iced tea even better on those hot days at home.
