It's Hip Hop Baby has a new DVD

About a year ago I had the opportunity to review & giveaway the It's Hip Hop, Baby: All Your Child's Favorites. (You can find that review here)

"It's Hip Hop, Baby!" is a children's DVD series for ages 2 to 6. These videos educate toddlers and preschoolers with fun child-friendly hip hop music. Children and even babies will want to move and groove and dance to the fun rhythms and beats in this educational DVD. This educational DVD series features child-friendly dance routines that help your child develop listening skills and the ability to follow simple directions.

Just recently,
It’s Hip Hop, Baby! released their first fitness DVD for kids called Hip Hop Dance Class! Hip Hop Dance Class is a 60-minute work out video featuring the latest in hip hop dance moves. Children ages 5 & up learn three complete dance routines with dance instructor Nikki Stanek. Check out my 10 year old daughter, Kanani, practicing her moves:

This is a fun workout for the whole family to do! I thought my daughter would have a hard time getting the moves down because she lacks rhythm. However, the Hip Hop Dance Class DVD breaks everything down step-by-step and even has different dance levels. Plus, there’s cardio hip hop, freestyle dancing and kids even learn how to clap and step to the beat. Kanani started off with the beginner's dance routine but then graduated to the intermediate. Yaay!

I love this DVD because it's a fun way to get kids moving! Nowadays kids are spending less time exercising and more time watching tv, playing video games, or on the internet. As parents, we stay busy and sometimes don't have time to cook a nutritious meal every night. It happens...nothing to be embarrassed about! It's easy to wean the kids off of the electronics and get them moving when it's something they'll enjoy. Although Kanani is super skinny, she is also super lazy & unfit (the girl can't even touch her toes). My husband and I workout but we realized Kanani needs to workout too. What a perfect DVD for her to have!

Buy It:

Frugalicious Mommy Disclosure: It's Hip Hop Baby! provided me with the Hip Hop Dance Class DVD. I was allowed to keep the product, but the opinion I am sharing remains my own. No monetary compensation was received for this review.

Frugal Cousin Wags Trip

Recently my cousin Denise of Hanford, California joined us in our Frugal shopping. Today she went to Wags and purchased everything you see in the pic. I can't believe how fast she picked up on this. Usually when you try to explain this to newbies it takes them a while especially Wags, since it's a little more confusing than CVS. Well not for Denise, that girl rolled and rolled those Register Rewards. Her couponing lesson consisted of a 10 minute phone call & a few emails. By the looks of it, I don't think she needed any help from me. Way to go Denise!!!!!!!!! I'll be calling you next week for your plan, so I can copy it...................

Ok, so here's her breakdown
Total Purchase $115.01
Total OOP $16.04
RR left $7.50

*** If you are out of Ecotrin Q's, she said there is a $2.00 Q in each box. I also seen $1.50 peelies on some of the boxes.

Almondina "Gourmet Cookies" Review/Giveaway (Closed)

Last month my mother reviewed a Gourmet Gift basket which included Almonduo Pistachio Biscuits by Almondina. She loved the Almondina cookies because not only were they yummy but they are also made with no added fat, salt, or cholesterol. Well I was very lucky to be contacted by Almondina to review a variety of their gourmet cookies. I was sent a box containing the following flavors: Original, Gingerspice, Cinnaroma, Choconut, Sesame, & Chocolate Cherry.

Are you wondering 'what is Almondina'?
Almondina Brand Biscuits are unique - a gourmet cookie, health food and snack, all in one. These extraordinary gourmet treats are created from a secret family recipe which has been passed down from generation to generation. Now you can enjoy Almondina just as Grandma Dina made in her own kitchen.

Almondina® Biscuits are:

  • Crunchy, addictive, healthful
  • Unique in the marketplace
  • Free of cholesterol, coloring and preservatives
  • Made with no added fat or salt
  • Low in calories - only 30 per slice
  • Enjoyed by people of all ages
  • Proudly made in America
  • Kosher and Pareve (non dairy)

  • The day my sample box arrived, I was like a kid in a candy store! I opened each flavor & began to eat one of each as my husband watched me with a grin on his face. I responded, "I have to taste them in order to write a review." He simply gave me a "Mmm hmmm!"
    I think I ended up eating roughly two from each package....just to be thorough with my review process. :) From my extensive taste testing I decided that my favorite flavors are Chocolate Cherry & Gingerspice. By far the unusual flavor was Sesame because it just doesn't sound like a typical cookie flavor. The taste of it is interesting too because the sesame seeds add a little twist to the flavor. Overall, all taste great & go perfect with my morning coffee! The fact that the cookies are a healthier choice & low in calories makes them the perfect guilt free snack (in moderation).

    Almondina has offered to give (3) lucky Frugalicious Mommy readers a 12-pack assorted case of delicious, healthy Almondina cookies!
