RoadTec Solar Water Fountain

6.3” SOLAR WATER FOUNTAIN WITH 4 NOZZLE HEADS

~ What ~
Made of plastic and metal, this 6.3” round flat black disc that is solar powered is a water fountain that can spray up to 15 inches tall. The 1.4 watt, 7 volt motor can be charged by the sun if in at least 2 inches of water. It comes with 4 different types of nozzle heads with 2 height levels. Instructions are included, and little assembly is required.

~ Why ~
What I like most about this compact water fountain is that it is solar-powered, so I do not have to think about turning it on and off daily or running any electrical wires. Another top feature that is the many different nozzle and height combinations. It was easy to assemble by removing a protective film, putting it in direct sunlight in water, and adding the desired nozzle. Since I recently reviewed another fountain, I found this one works better in my bird bath and pond as it is smaller and does not spray too much out of the fountain or pond.

~ Why Not ~
Those who live in the Pacific Northwest or where there is limited sun may not think this will fountain will run long enough during the short sunny days. Some may not like the flat black disc look of the unit. However, it appears to be quite durable and is waterproof.

~ Wish ~
I wish the nozzles could come on and off easier as they are hard to change. I may have to remove all nozzle heads and use as a bubbler so I do not have to keep adding water that quickly evaporates due to the spray.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a wireless water fountain to put in a bird bath or pond, this smaller solar-powered one would work well.

Goddess Area Women’s Maxi Skirt

 

BLACK FLARED DECORATIVE LONG SKIRT

~ What ~
Made of 90% Nylon and 10% Spandex, this women’s ankle-length flared black skirt with decorative swirls has an elastic waist. With 5 sizes available from Small to XX-Large, there is only one color to choose. Cleaning instructions online and on an attached tag state to wash in cold water and air dry. It arrives in a lovely decorative bag with handles and comes with a potpourri satchel.

~ Why ~
I am in my 60s and love wearing long dresses and skirts, and this one is a comfortable choice. I like the colorful floral pattern embroidered with gold thread and small rhinestones in swirls around the front bottom of the skirt. Its waist is high and stretchy around the waistline. The Large fit my Size 8 frame nicely, and I could have gone down to a medium.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the heaviness of the skirt material or pattern design. A few may think it is hard to put on since there is no zipper or buttons at the waist, but it is stretchy to step into and slip over the hips.

~ Wish ~
I wish more color options of this dress were available. The swirls are only on 4 front panels and no back panels, so the back of the dress looks plain.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a comfortable black skirt with a little sparkle to it, this is a lovely skirt if you do not mind the back having no design.

I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones

I Am: The Names of God for Little OnesTitle: I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones
Author: Diane Stortz
Illustrator: Diane Le Feyer
Publisher: Tommy Nelson
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1079-1

“God’s names teach us that He is powerful, loving, and gentle,” the back jacket states in the children’s book, I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones, by Diane Stortz.

~ What ~
At twenty-four pages, this hardbound with rounded corners and sparkles on the padded front cover targets preschool children and older who want to learn more about God. With no scary scenes, the colorful illustrations are detailed and expressive on all pages, captivating a young one’s attention. Using mainly the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible, the ICB and NLT are also referenced.

With the top of the left side of the page listing a name for God with the Hebrew or English rendition, a Bible verse and short rewritten paragraph from the Word is written out, overlapping a corresponding drawing. A short one-sentence prayer is on the bottom right side of the page. All names reflect who God is and why.

~ Why ~
This is terrific way to explain to a child who God is and what names He is called. There are the Old Testament names of Elohim, El Shaddai, Jehovah, El Moshaah, Jehovah Jireh, and Jehovah Rophe, as well as the Son of God, Rabbi, the Good Shepherd, Savior, Friend, and King of Kings. I love how the book is formatted in the same order as the Bible and that some of the Jewish names have pronunciations. The prayers complete the thought as they refer to the Almighty’s names.

One example is The Lord Will Provide / Jehovah Jireh (jeh-HO-vuh JYE-ruh) that has Genesis 22:14 written out. The paragraph covers Exodus 16 about God’s people trusting God to take care of them by giving them manna. The prayer is “Dear God, thank You for giving me all I need! Amen.”

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not approve of this book as it focuses on God. Beginner readers may have trouble with the two- and three-syllable words.

~ Wish ~
I was so impressed with this book that teaches God’s names that there are no suggestions to improve it except to provide more names of Him. I love that an adult reading it to a child will be encouraged and reminded of our Lord’s names too. Those of Jewish faith may appreciate the link to their Messiah.

~ Want ~
If your child is starting to question who is God and what are some of His names, this is an excellent short book that promotes a dozen names, explaining each of them through a Bible passage.

Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

Wehvkei Waxing Warmer Set

ALL-IN-ONE WAX HAIR REMOVAL KIT

~ What ~
Made of aluminum with glass and metal, this wax warmer kit can hold 450 cc of wax and comes with 4 packs of 3.5 ounces of wax beans, 10 applicator sticks, a user guide, and an electrical plug. Its temperature is adjustable from 140 to 246 degrees Fahrenheit. It arrives in a gift box with instructions, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
Recently I spent $1200 on electrolysis to remove facial chin hair and got little results, with the coarse hairs growing back. I use a small battery-charged portable razor now. Seeing I have never tried to remove hairs with wax, I like that this is a new way to do it that leaves the skin smooth and hair-free for longer periods of time. In testing it, it does remove the fine baby hairs on the face, neck, legs, etc. It is not too painful if you apply the wax as it cools down. I like that 4 bags of wax are included in the box.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like to remove hair with heated wax as it may be uncomfortable may not like this product. Others may not like how the wax gives a clogged-feeling to the skin’s pores, but I did not have this issue.

~ Wish ~
While this product works on fine hairs, it did not remove or dissolve any of the thicker hairs that we older women get occasionally on our face (I reapplied one area twice to see if it would help). I wish there was a complete way to permanently dissolve these thick hairs as I have not found the answer yet.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an inexpensive wax warmer to remove hair, this is a keeper if you are young and do not want to shave often. If you are older like me and have those pesky thick chin hairs that drive you crazy, sorry, you may have to keep looking as I am.

Rated 4.5 of 5 stars only because I wanted it to remove every single hair.

Fronage Woman’s Casual Polka Dot Dress

 

 

COMFY WOMEN’S POLKA DOT KNEE-LENGTH DRESS

~ What ~
Made of 70% Polyester and 30% Spandex, this women’s 3/4-sleeved dress that rests at the knee has a scooped neckline and bottom hem and 2 pockets with no zipper or buttons. With 4 sizes available from Small to X-Large, it comes in 3 color choices of blue, coffee, and gray, all with white polka dots. Online it states it can machine or hand washed, but its attached tag recommends to wash separately or dry clean.

~ Why ~
I am in my 60s and love wearing casual, comfortable dresses, and this one fits the bill. I like the empire waistline and the almost ½ inch white polka dots. The stretchy t-shirt-like fabric flows well and is soft against my skin. The double-stitched hems are well sewn. I ordered a Medium, and it fit my Size 8 frame nicely.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the dress material or pattern design. A few may think it is hard to put on since there is no zipper or buttons on the back, but it is stretchy to slip on and off.

~ Wish ~
I wish information was given online of the exact fabric contents.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a comfortable, casual, and classy dress for work or play, this is a great option.

Nannette 3-Piece Boy’s Summer Outfit

With 3 sizes available from 12 to 24 months, there are 7 designs to choose from online. Cleaning icons on a detachable tags state they can be machined washed and dried.

~ Why ~
Our two-year-old grandson is growing like a weed and is visiting from out of state in a month, so I had to buy him this 3-in-1 set. I like the quality of the button-down shirt with the racecars on it and the matching car-themed t-shirt. The shorts have a button on the fly with an elastic waist. The material is a little stretchy, lightweight, and comfortable. I think he will love wearing this gift.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the color combinations or designs offered, but they are nice as complete sets for a boy toddler.

~ Wish ~
Even with 7 designs to choose from, I wish more options were available so I could buy several.

~ Want ~

A Daring Venture

A Daring VentureTitle: A Daring Venture
Author: Elizabeth Camden
Publisher: BethanyHouse
ISBN: 978-0-7642-1882-8

“It was going to be a challenge to get him to reconsider the filtration plant, but it had to be done,” Rosalind determines in Elizabeth Camden’s novel, A Daring Venture.

~ What ~
The second of three in the Empire State series, this three-hundred-fifty-two-page paperback targets those who like historical fiction with suspense and romance during the early 1900s regarding chlorinating water for the first time in New Jersey. With some slang words, its topics of impropriety, physical abuse, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. A historical note, ten discussion questions, sequel information, author’s biography, and advertisements are included.

Set in 1908, twenty-eight-year-old Doctor Rosalind Werner is one of the few women biochemists who has a passion to cure water-borne diseases in drinking water. Upon coming to America, she hides her tainted past and works with Doctor John Leal to secretly add chlorine to New Jersey’s water, despite how New York’s newly-appointed water commissioner, Nick Drake, is vehemently opposed to the groundbreaking idea.

Between the lies and hidden truths of the doctor’s past and the professional’s uneducated background and anger issues, they wonder if they can fall instantly in love without compromising their core beliefs in how to have clean, healthy water for the people.

~ Why ~
I enjoy historical romance stories where I learn something new, and this one offers details about underground water systems, chlorination, and filtration. How the judicial system got involved and maintained decorum between the opposite approaches to the state’s water problems was interesting.

~ Why Not ~
Like the first book in the series, this one also contains a family feud dragging decades long and includes dealing with greed and personal wealth to gain status or favors. Others may not like the limited use of slang words. Again, there is little Christian influence mentioned in the story.

~ Wish ~
To me, it seems this tale has the same cookie-cutter format as its predecessor with the beginning interesting, informative, and engaging while the abrupt ending is about restoring relationships, family dynamics, and resolution.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a historical fiction dealing with overcoming shame due to the past and questioning mistakes made, this second in the series may interest you more than the prior one.

Thanks to Bethany House for this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.

Yixin Toy Doctor Set

11 PIECE MEDICAL BAG FOR KIDS

~ What ~
Made non-toxic ABS plastic, this children’s toy doctor set has 1o medical items that include a stethoscope, oral mirror, pulse oximeter, reflex hammer, otoscope, thermometer, pliers, scissors, kife, and medical plate that arrive in a 2-latch carry box with a see-through window.

~ Why ~
Our grandson and granddaughters are coming to visit from out of state soon, and I like having fun toys for them that are educational and interactive. This is a fun set as it has up-to-date medical tools that my husband, who is in the medical field, can explain and show to them. I like that 4 of the items can light up and have enclosed batteries.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not realize how small these parts are, so they could be a choking hazard. Others who are not in the medical field may not understand what the function is of each tool. There may be some children who are afraid of doctors that may not appreciate this set, but it may be a good way to calm their fears using pretend devices.

~ Wish ~
I wish these tools had more details to them as they are rudimentary. Although the 4 items did light up, they do not really serve any purpose when trying to explain it to a child who may be interested in medicine.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fun medical toy kit for an inquisitive child to learn about his or her body, this elementary set is a good start.

Thanks for Yixin for this discounted product that I am under no obligation to evaluate.

I wish the nozzles included a low profile one as all shoot water up too high in the pond or bird bath (see photos). However, if no nozzle is used, it does make a decent bubbler.

~ Want ~

Mini Da Vinci Fun Stencil Set

STENCIL ON THE GO

~ What ~
Containing items made of paper, plastic, and wood, this children’s art set has 10 colored pencils, a pencil sharpener, 20 drawing papers, zippered pencil case, and a clear backpack carrying tote. With over 15 sheets of designs to stencil, there are 220 cut-out choices for ages 4 years old and above to use. It arrives in a cellophane pack, ready to give to the young artist in your life.

~ Why ~
Having a degree in art and a 5 year-old granddaughter who loves to draw, this is the perfect art project to have available when she visits next month. I love the combination of stencils that cover emojis, musical instruments, princes, princesses, fairies, unicorns, mermaids, dragons, nature, flowers, dogs, cats, paw prints, rainbows, dinosaurs, cars, emotions, holidays, and farm animals just to cover a few. Adding the paper and pencils with the sharpener, pencil holder, and bag complete the gift.

~ Why Not ~
Some children may not be into drawing and stenciling or may prefer free-hand illustrating so they may not be interested in this product. Others may want to buy less inexpensive sets, but they will not contain the plethora of stencils in this pack.

~ Wish ~
I wish the carrying tote was a of higher quality as the zipper would not unzip the entire way.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a art set that will provide hours of fun for children in a wide age range and can be used repeatedly, this one would be enjoyed.
