Let Your Creativity Shine: Little Miss Matched SLIDERZ review!!

Summer is all about the flip flops, am I right?? A girl can never have enough pairs, and you truely know it's summer when you slide on your favorite pair of flops. Your flip flops should express your crazy personality and be fun to wear, which is why I adore Little Miss Matched and their SLIDERZ flip flops. Not only are these shoes super cute, the sliderz allow you to change the pattern on the bridge of the shoe for a multiple-in-one summer shoe!

Another style of LMM SLIDERZ!

I received a pair of LMM SLIDERZ flop flip shoes in blue, and we also received a child's pair of LMM SLIDERZ platform flop flips in pretty pink for Angie! I want to start out by talking about the design of the shoe. I absolutely HATE when flip flops break, it's the worst!! Just last night, I was at a concert in Portland and one of my flip flops broke; I spent half the night bare-foot! Well, I really wish I had worn my LMM SLIDERZ last night. These shoes are cute and fun, but they are also a quality shoe that won't break. The shoe itself is pretty thick for maximum comfort, and the bridge is sturdy. Both pairs of shoes have fun, girly designs on the base of the shoe!

You can buy extra inserts, such as the Wild Thing inserts, for endless Summer shoe fun!
SLIDERZ are the newest summer shoe from Little Miss Matched, a company that is known for their crazy fun apparel and decor! SLIDERZ are customizable shoes that give YOU the ability to design your shoes every time you wear them. Both pairs of SLIDERZ that we received came with fun inserts that are super easy to slide into the bridge of the flip flop. The reversable inserts slide right into the thong of the shoe, and look totally cute! You can also buy extra inserts for even more fun. Angie LOVED this aspect of the shoe, and if you're looking for creative shoes for girls look no further than Little Miss Matched!

I love wearing my LMM SLIDERZ, although they are definitely a "casual" flip flop. Living in Maine, I'm always looking for an easy pair of shoes to wear to the beach without having to worry about ruining them if they get sandy or wet! I wear my LMM SLIDERZ to the beach and to our local pool, as well as to run quick outdoor errands. Like Angie, I actually have a lot of fun deciding which insert to put into my shoe that day! As you can imagine from the name of the company, Little Miss Matched is all about getting crazy and expressing yourself through funky patterns. Mixing and matching designs is totally fun with this casual summer shoe!

Not crazy about the SLIDERZ? LMM also sells so many other shoes, such as the Poison Arrow Flip Flops, the Tropical Mix Wedge Flip Flops, and the Zany White Braided Thong Flip Flops!

The LMM SLIDERZ platform flop flips are super cute summer shoes for girls! Angie's are a little big right now, but she will love to wear these everywhere next summer. I could see girls wearing these almost anytime they go out, and they are just perfect for the beach or the lake! Girly girls will love the bright pink color and "grown-up" platform heel, while moms will feel they are getting a great bargain at only $14.33 (right now!) for a FABULOUS shoe! Speaking of fabulous, young High School Musical lovers will be just like Sharpay with these girly platforms!

Little Miss Matched is a wonderful company that sells much more than shoes! We took a look through their site, which is super easy to navigate by the way, and found so many other cool things we'd love to own or give as gifts! LMM is a great place to find birthday gifts or christmas gifts for girls and moms. I would feel really comfortable giving anything Miss Matched to a friend's daughter, because I know the product will be high quality and appropriate for all ages. Whether the young girl in your life is artsy, into fashion, or just loves bright colors, there is something for everyone at Little Miss Matched. Take a look at some of our favorite products!!

Review: Breyer Classic Pet Sitter Set!!

To purchase the Pet Sitter Set that our family loved, simple go to this link:

When I hear the name Breyer, I automatically think back to a friend of mine and her beautiful horse collection. When we were little, I would often go to this particular friend's house and see her horses, big and small, lined up around her room. Of course, all of these horses were Breyer classics. This is what Breyer is known for. Recently, I was excited to find out that Breyer by Reeves International also makes play sets for younger children! Whereas older girls might love to collect the beautiful classic horses, younger children will delight in the Gift Play Sets that Breyer has to offer. We were delighted to get to try out the Pet Sitter Set by Breyer (Reeves International)!!

When the Pet Sitter Set arrived, I immediately fell in love with the packaging. The set includes a Pet Sitter doll, a young foal, a kitten, and a puppy. Little girls who love animals will be happy that this set comes with such a variety of friends! The packaging is set up to look as if the girl and her friends are playing in a field in front of a farm house, which I thought was really unique!

The quality of the Pet Sitter Set was wonderful. I love that these toys foster creative play, and allow the child to make up their own stories! Many toys these days keep the child from being this creative, but Breyer toys are classics! This toy set is definitely aimed at younger girls, I would say ages 4-7. Angie loved incorporating this doll in with her similar doll house toys, but she said she was glad to have a "farm" set because that is something you don't see much anymore! Living in Maine, we actually do have many farms near us, and Breyer toys are a great way of brining the farm home.

The detail on these toys is also really great. One thing that can be frustrated with girl's toys these days is that often time you can feel like you're just paying for something that wasn't made with care. This is in no way true with Breyer toys!! The young farm girl doll has cute little freckles on her face, and the tabby cat and puppy have lots of detail to make them look real. I've found that toys that are more realistic will hold Angie's attension for longer, so this was another plus!

Something else I loved about this gift set was that the doll's clothing was APPROPRIATE! I would definitely feel comfortable giving this gift set to a friend's child. With the Breyer Pet Sitter Set, you know that you are giving a quality gift and that other moms will be okay with their daughter playing with this type of toy. This piece of mind is important, and Breyer provides it! The doll's clothese are a lot like something I would let Angie wear, and that realism with toys is also important for children's self esteem. This doll actually looks like a real little girl, which is something that can't be said about Barbies.

This is a great summer toy, and it also teaches responsibility. As your child has fun this summer, she can mimic the adventures she goes on with her doll. If your child goes camping or goes to a farm, this doll can be right there with her. This set is called the Pet Sitter Set since the doll is taking care of numerous animals. This inspires your child to be responsible just like her doll, and to care for family pets all by herself.

Girls will also love the Classic Breyer 3-Horse Stable!
There are so many reasons to buy this doll. I would love to give this are a Christmas or Birthday gift. The school year is drawing to a close soon, and the Breyer Pet Sitter Set would be a great end-of-the-school-year-gift! I would also gift this to a daughter if I was getting a new family pet, because it does inspire responsibility. I think it is wonderful that Breyer makes a toy set that inspires young girls to take care of their own pets!

BUY IT: If you would like to purchase this Breyer Classic Gift Play Set - Pet Sitter Set, they can be purchased at Toys R US or online! Breyer toys are made by Reeves International, and I encourage you to check out the other wonderful toys made by this great company! After browsing a little, I can tell you that Reeves International is a wonderful company that makes really quality toys! Definitely keep them in mind the next time you need a present!
