Monkey Drum






Looking for a new to us instrument we settled on the Monkey Drum which reminds us all of a Karate' movie from years ago.

You can play it with two or one hand. My grand daughter had a ball with this one. Every time I use it the look on my face seems like it scares me but it doesn't. It is funny how our bodies react to different things that we come in contact with.

The size of this is quite nice with it being 6 inches in diameter. I do suggest if you have children to make sure you are near by just in case one of the beads or strings come loose. You just never know what a child may try to put in their mouths.

We are happy with this and my daughter plans to take this to school this year as part of show and tell. The Monkey Drum can be found below.

Passing the Torch




As a child I played the tambourine during church music service with my friend the Pastor's daughter and other church members. I continued to do it into adult hood. I enjoyed it very much. Somewhere along the line and moves I lost my tambourine.

When we were looking for new instruments to add to our collection one of the items we got was a 10 inch Tambourine so that the kids now they are growing can learn on a full size version.

Personally I like tambourines with double rows of cymbals but this is still great for beginners or those who like single row cymbals.

As you can see my daughter was really getting into playing it. Very easy and something she will learn in percussion. Currently she plays the flute but would love to be in Jazz band in the coming years so she has named a few instruments she would like to play some we already have and others to add to the mix. Music is such an awesome thing that can cut through boundaries and touch peoples lives in ways other things can not do.







This Tambourine can be found below.

A Bluetooth just for me





So here I am finally talking about a Bluetooth Speaker just for me. I have had several but each time a family member scoops it up and I am left with none. Not this time, this one is all mine.

What I love most about this Bluetooth Speaker from AncordWorks is that  it easily pares with my devices, and is rechargeable. I can use this while meditating, doing yoga, doing dishes, or even blogging. Most of the time I am streaming music through my cell phone or my computer so I am limited by sound, but with this speaker I can really let my music fill the air around me with joyful uplifting music that gets me through my day.

You can see our video review here. You can also find it at my link below.

Musical Hovering Soccer Ball



One thing our family likes to do is to play soccer. Now with the new hovering soccer balls like this one from TheSimple we can play inside all year round. This one has lights with sound and works on 4 AA batteries which are included. Great for gift giving.

I love how this hovers and moves so smoothly while playing with it. If it hits furniture it will not damage anything. Even our kittens will bat this back and forth to each other. Great for family inside fun on rainy or snow days. Think cabin fever.

There is a downside you can not choose to turn off the music if you choose it all runs on the same switch as the lights and fan. My girls play with this quite often. I even get in on the fun from time to time. TheSimple Hovering Musical Soccer ball can be found at my affiliate link below.

Record Rescue





This sure brings back memories. Makes me wish I had kept more of my vinyl. For the vinyl I did keep I have this nifty record rescue brush for keeping my vinyl in tip top shape and sounding great. I love that is comes with an easy to use brush with a self cleaning cover/ handle.

Since it is red I can find it easily when I need to clean my records. For us our 19 year old daughter got us back into vinyl. I swear she was born in the wrong era but here she is 19 loving music and a time gone by with gusto. For her it never left because she made it available in her own time, in her own way. Now she too can keep her vinyl clean and sounding smooth for years to come thanks to record rescue.

P26 iJoy Matte Finish Premium Wireless Bluetooth Over Ear Headset Foldable Headphone



Love these headphone. First of all they come in lots of colors so everyone can choose their favorite color. Two they are rechargeable. Three they are Wireless. Those all speak to this mom for a great start to a good set of headphones.

Packaged well for gift giving. The headphones can be used with or without the included wire and are as I said before rechargeable.

The sound is of good quality as my children don't really listen to heavy bass songs I am not sure how they really sound with lots of bass yet. Will have to give them a whirl on some old heavy metal for that test but until then they are great for listening to audio books, music, and movies.

Comfortable headphones that fold, and work well. Fits both my children and myself with no problems.

The P26 iJoy Matte Finish Premium Wireless Bluetooth Over Ear Headset Foldable Headphones can be found on Amazon.





Deep, accurate bass response,Extended frequency range, Rechargeable

So far so good. This is a beautiful singing bowl and just the right size for beginners. Once I get good at this I would like to move up to a bigger size. My 8 year old is already trying to learn how to use the singing bowl too and said "Mommy when you get a new one can I have this one so we can do yoga and meditationn together" I said you sure can I can always use a partner.

When beginning take a look at some videos on line to get yourself started and believe me your bowl will teach you what works for both of you all on its own. It is a amazing. I am still learning but learning to mediatate too time so this will too.

Sometimes your DVD drive will break down in your computer and you want a quick fix sot that you can get on with what you are trying to get done. This is where the External Drive comes in. I won't kid you this is mainly my husbands field but I have to say that external drives come in handy.

My daughter was gifted a used computer for Christmas and soon after the drive stopped working so we were able to replace it with an external drive and keep her up and going. Mainly so she didn't have to use our computers.

I am very glad for the people who come up with these items so you can continue to use your computer's long after some parts have stopped working.

These will even burn disc so you can make family picture discs for your family, back up your files, and even store pictures of all of the school art that you just don't have enough room to actually keep. They will preserved for all to see as long as there is a live disc somewhere.
