Canshow Dog Walking Set

DURABLE LEASH, COLLAR, AND HARNESS

~ What ~
Made of blue jean and red nylon, this matching set includes a dog harness, leash, and collar. Available in 4 sizes of S, M, L, & XXL, the harness and collar are adjustable with plastic buckles and metal D hooks while the leash has a 360-degree rotatable lobster clasp hook. All items arrive in a cellophane bag with no instructions.

~ Why ~
Having a 35-pound beagle, we walk him 3 or more miles a day, so we need a reliable, strong harness and this one fits the bill and should last a long time. I like that large rotatable toggle clip on the leash is made of a durable metal. The jean material is thick yet trendy looking with even gold stitching. Including the matching collar makes it a complete set.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like harnesses that have to be stepped into as it is a struggle for certain dogs. Others may like the retractable type of leashes.

~ Wish ~
I wish other colors were available. It would be helpful if wearing and cleaning instructions were added.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a sturdy, well-made dog leash, harness, and collar, this would be ideal if you do not mind this step-in product

DogJog Harness Set

COLORFUL MESH DOG HARNESS, LEASH, & CAR STRAP

~ What ~
Made of an unstated mesh material, this complete set in 3 size options includes dog harness, seat belt strap, and leash. The Medium-sized harness fits a dog’s girth of 13.8 to 17.7 inches and comes with a metal D-ring, plastic side buckle, and adjustable strap. Approximately 5-feet long and 3/4-inch wide, the matching leash has a spinning metal clasp so it should not tangle. The black seat belt strap has a metal locking bar on one end and lobster clasp on the other. The 5 color choices include black, blue, orange, pink, and red. All pieces come in a cellophane bag.

~ Why ~
I like that the harness and leash are the same color and the harness material feels light and breathable. The harness can be hooked to the leash on the back of the dog, instead of the usual front of neck area like others that get in the dog’s way walking. The leash is long and strong, and the seat belt strap is adaptable for any vehicle with its rectangular metal loop.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like putting harnesses on their dog as some can be a hassle. I like that this one only has one buckle to click on the side of the dog, and there is a locking button to press when releasing. Others may prefer long leashes that have retractable cords so their dog can have more leeway when walking.

~ Wish ~
I wish it would be emphasized online that these harnesses are for puppies, not large animals as I did not check the Medium size, which is not large enough for our 1-year-old 35-pound beagle. Also, providing cleaning instructions would be helpful.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a complete dog harness/leash/car seat strap for your puppy, this appears to be a comfortable, flexible harness with accessories, but I would recommend checking all measurements as they are smaller than you may realize as the product is geared for little or young dogs.

CarbonLife Money Clip

CLASSY MONEY CLIP WITH RFID

~ What ~
Made of carbon fiber, this men’s money clip has RFID blocking capability to deter thieves from stealing the owner’s identity. With a 3K herringbone twill pattern in all black, the sturdy fold-over wallet can hold paper money, credit cards, and business cards. Its dimensions are approximately 3.5 by 2.2 by 0.6- inches. The front has a small lip, and the item is shiny. Instructions or verification of RFID are not included. It arrives in a gift box, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
Our son does not like wallets and only uses money clips, so this will make a nice Christmas gift. He tends to overstuff his current clip so I like that this one can hold up to 12 credit cards. Since he travels often, he needs the RFID blocking protection. With thieves these days going to desperate means to steal identities, this money clip is one way to deter them. I like the zigzag pattern as well as the thinness of the item with the viewing opening on one side.

~ Why Not ~
Some may question if the material is carbon fiber or plastic. There is no way to verify the RFID blocking works unless one tests it going through airport security.

~ Wish ~
I wish there were more color options for the clip such as brown, gold, or silver.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an RFID blocking money clip that is attractive and can hold quite a bit, this is an excellent choice.

My Bible Story Coloring Book

My Bible Story Coloring Book (Nov) Image 1 of 1Title:  My Bible Story Coloring Book
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 978-0-310-76106-8

“Color yur way through 32 beloved Bible stories,” the back jacket states in My Bible Story Coloring Book by Zondervan.

~ What ~
This one-hundred-and-forty-four-page over-sized paperback targets children three to twelve years old who enjoy retold stories from the Bible while coloring matching designs. Using the New International Reader’s Version of the Holy Bible, the thirty-two stories from the Old and New Testaments are divided into four sections with eight in each one.

After a table of contents, the two-to-four-page stories cover are spread over an eight week period so the child can concentrate on the words and color the many designs for that story throughout seven days. The topics include Covenant History, Prophets, Writings, and the New Testament, and range from Noah’s ark, King Solomon’s riches, Jonah and the large fish, and the valley of dry bones to what is a Proverb, Josiah celebrating Passover, Paul’s conversion, and the empty tomb to name a few. With black writing, the illustrations grace the pages with plenty of details.

~ Why ~
Those who love to draw, doodle, or fill in coloring books while focusing on the Bible and its contents will appreciate this coloring book. I like that the stories are simplified but offer the truth. Separating it into four sections of eight weeks each makes the reader not feel rushed to complete the pages. Using thick paper, colored pencils and some gel pens may not bleed through to the other side.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ may not be interested in this type of coloring book. Others may not care for the limited explanations in the stories and its vague plan of plan of eternal salvation.

~ Wish ~
I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. Since the New Testament stories are not in order of the Bible, it may confuse some children when trying to look up them in Scriptures.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a Biblical coloring book that includes thirty-two stories to read while filling in corresponding drawings, this would be a good selection.

Thanks to Z-Blog Squad for this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.

Daniel and the Lions’ Den

Beginner's Bible Daniel and the Lions' Den Image 1 of 1Title: Daniel and the Lions’ Den
Illustrator: Denis Alonso
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 978-0-310-76041-2

“So God sent his angel to help Daniel. Daniel was safe all night,” the story states in Zondervan’s children’s book, Daniel and the Lions’ Den.

~ What ~
Part of The Beginner’s Bible I Can Read series, this thirty-three-page thin paperback targets young children from four to eight years old. The book covers the Old Testament’s story in the Holy Bible of Daniel in the lions’ den. It would best be read out loud to non-readers or beginner readers who like to look at pictures due to their limited reading comprehension level.

The book tells the accurate story of Daniel praying to God and thrown into a den of lions after disobeying the king’s law. With an angel protecting him, Daniel was not harmed, and the king told his people to only pray to the man’s God. Having colorful, easy-to-decipher illustrations, the cartoon designs with big white-eyed animals and people are on almost every page.

~ Why ~
This is a helpful book for beginner to early readers since there are only a few sentences on each page. There are plenty of objects to view by a young child. I like how there is room for discussion about trusting God to protect us throughout our lives. Without containing any scary scenes of ravenous lions, several of them look content and happy.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not want to promote teaching a child about the iconic Old Testament story will pass on this book. Some may be leary of the depictions of the angry men on a few pages, With a couple of bones included in the illustration on the cover and one inside, it may make an inquisitive reader wonder whose they are and why they are there. The story does not mention how the evil men were thrown to the lions afterward.

~ Wish ~
I wish more Bible stories were told this simply. I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a short beginner reader’s Bible story about God watching Daniel when he was cast into the lions’ den, this will keep young children’s attention.

LKY DIGITAL Worldwide AC Plug Adapter

UNIVERSAL AC ADAPTER CHARGER

~ What ~
This small white travel adapter can be used in 150 countries as an AC plug-in charger that has 2 USB ports. With 4 types of plug-ins for USA, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia, it measures 3 by 1.9 by 1.3 inches and weighs 3.5 ounces. It arrives in a black zippered case with instructions in a gift box.

~ Why ~
Our adult son and his wife are taking a trip to Italy next year so this is the perfect Christmas gift so they can charge their US electronics and smartphones. I like how small the item is and how it is well-built with the multiple plug-ins. There are 2 slide-out buttons that protrude the prongs. Including the carrying case is perfect to tuck in an overnight bag, purse, or backpack for quick access.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not travel worldwide will not need this handy item. Others may think it is an added hassle to take electronics or phones into another country due to extra charges and fees, but this device may be a life-saver in an emergency.

~ Wish ~
With the item available in black and white options, it might be more advantageous having it in a bright neon color so it can be spotted easily.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an inexpensive travel adapter for your next trip around the world, look no further and have an enjoyable time.

MGCFTan Carbon Fiber Wallet

SUPER THIN CARBON FIBER WALLET WITH RFID

~ What ~
Made of carbon fiber, this men’s wallet has RFID blocking capability to deter thieves from stealing the owner’s identity. With a 3K twill pattern in black with navy blue seams, the 4-section wallet can hold paper money plus coins, credit cards, and business cards. Its dimensions are approximately 4 by 3 by 0.25- inches. There are 6 colored thread options in black, white, blue, green, red, and gold. Instructions or verification of RFID is not included.

~ Why ~
What stands out the most visually with this wallet is its thinness and flexible carbon fiber material with leather trim. I appreciate it has the RFID blocking protection as thieves these days go to desperate means to steal identities and money. There is an angled pocket on one side, 2 pockets on its opposite side, and a deep opening in the middle. I like the zigzag shiny pattern as well as the pocket that can hold coins, unlike most men’s wallets.

~ Why Not ~
Some may question if the material is carbon fiber or plastic, but the twill pattern goes all the way through the material. There is no way to verify the RFID blocking works unless one tests it going through airport security. 

~ Wish ~
Although I like the colored threads across and around the wallet, I wish there were more color options than black in the carbon fiber material such as brown, gold, or silver.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an RFID blocking wallet that is super thin yet has 3 sections, this is an ideal option.

LongWalker Solar Garden Lights

2 STURDY SOLAR GARDEN LIGHTS 

~ What ~
Made of stainless steel poles with ABS plastic, this lightweight set of 2 garden stake lights are solar, so no added electricity is required. Each light measures approximately 20 inches tall including the ground stake and 4 inches in diameter. They run for up to 8 hours after being charged 8 to 10 hours by the sun. Instructions are added, and little assembly is required. Both lights plus a free garden trowel arrive in a gift box. 

~ Why ~
What I like most about this set of garden lights is that they are solar-powered, so I do not have to think about turning them on and off daily or running any electrical wires. Another top feature that is that they are made of stainless steel, not cheap plastic. In testing them at night, I found their lighting coverage was about 2 feet in diameter; they look nice along dark walkways. They were easy to assemble by putting the ground pointer on the metal shaft and the light’s holder on the opposite end. To turn them on, one has to twist apart the top piece of the light where there is a hidden switch by the included battery. Adding the trowel is a nice touch. 

~ Why Not ~
Those who live in the Pacific Northwest or where there is limited sun may not think they will light up long enough at night during the short sunny days. Others may not like the copper color of the shafts. 

~ Wish ~
I wish other colors could be offered such as chrome, white, or black. It would be ideal if the shaft came in different heights.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a set of 2 durable garden lights that are solar powered, this is a perfect choice.

Paws N’ Rolls Dog Poop Bag Holder

CUTE DOG POOP BAG CARRIER

~ What ~
Made of PU leather with a nylon zipper and metal ring hook, this small object can hold a roll of included 15 poop bags as well as a dog treat or key and be clipped to a dog leash, purse, backpack, and more. It measures 3.5 inches in diameter and 1.33 inches tall and has a pull-through opening with a metal ring on one side to access the bags. No instructions are included in the gift box.

~ Why ~
We have a 35 pound one-year-old Beagle that we arduously walk 3 to 4 miles a day so we always have to carry waste bags for when he does his business. I like how cute the design is on the holder of dogs, fire hydrants, trees, bones, and paw prints and that it is large enough to carry the bags plus a small item. Being able to clip it on to the leash makes it easier for us as we never forget to carry bags.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like that the holder is large enough that it might interfere with the leash or leash holder. Since we have a retractable leash, the carabiner cannot fit over the handle of the leash so we have to carry it in our pockets or clip it to the dog’s harness or collar.

~ Wish ~
It would be nice if there were other design options for this helpful device.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fashionable way to carry dog waste bags, this is a keeper

BEIYI Home-US LED Snowfall Projector Light

LET IT “SNOW” ANYTIME

~ What ~
This waterproof ABS plastic and metal light can be used outdoors or indoors to varied white lights that look like snow falling against the dark. The gift box comes with the 4 LED projector light, power adapter, power cable, ground stake, remote control with battery, and instructions.

~ Why ~
What I like most about this product is how easy to assemble by adding the ground stake, positioning the unit in the ground, angling the light, and turning it on with the remote. With the capability to have solid dots or different snowfall speeds, its wide angle can cover up to 30 feet with a 165-degree coverage. Being able to control it when it is pouring outside from inside is ideal. I was impressed how large and heavy the light is and that the 8-inch long ground stake is sturdy and durable. Adding the small 23A 12 v battery for the remote is a plus.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the simplicity of this light and prefer the typical Christmas scenes of Santas, trees, reindeer, and more, but I like how clean the lights appear on the front of our white house. I found it a little hard to sync the remote to the light fixture, but there is a button on the back of the light that can be pressed to control it.

~ Wish ~
With this only being small white/blue dots in different sizes that routinely move around, it would be nice if they were miniature snowflakes instead.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a simplistic way to decorate your house as if it is snowing, this will make a perfect addition.
