Thank you from Joyful Noise


Thank you to Ruffles and TuTu’s for donating these beautiful, flowy tutu’s for our Christmas production, “Cookies for Christmas.”  Our dancers were so excited and looked absolutley beautiful in them.

I have been having so much learning with my children.  That is right!  Even the youngest can learn and follow the steps.  Super easy and convenient.   After a week of dancing I have noticed by muscles are getting tighter and my tummy is flatter.

Thank you Dance Crazy for the opportunity to review your instructional DVD’s in exchange for my honest opinion.

Leap into Gaming with LeapTV


It is here!!!!  This is the hottest toy item for Christmas this year!  LeapTV is a game console similar to the Wii but for lil people!  Full of educational gaming.  Your child will be excited to play and learn.  Get your kiddos off the couch and moving around with LeapTV.  My children and I were chosen to test out the new gaming system for ages 4-7 absolutely free, all that was required is an honest review.

Setting up LeapTV took minutes.  It is that easy!  Simply plug it in and go!  You will need to set up the players with name and birthday and that is it!  We were given two games to enjoy.


And look how much they enjoyed the games!

The LeapTV controller is perfect for lil hands and super easy to use!


We had some difficulty with sound when we first set up the console.  It sounded fuzzy, but we shut down the console and restarted and the sound was perfectly fine.

The kids really enjoyed the games.  It was nice to see the children interacting together and moving around.  The Sports game was the most popular among our group.  It is very interactive and will cause your child to get a serious workout while challenging math skills.  Children are encouraged to add and subtract.  Other skills tested include number recognition, shapes, and counting.  My 12 year old nephew described the soccer game as “Intense.”  My 5 year old son said, “this game was challenging.”  My 14 year old niece and 10 year old daughter enjoyed the movement, music, and dancing.

This is a great gaming console for all ages and really brings the family together.
