Orkin #MouseInAHouse Cozy Fleece Winter Blanket (4'x6') #Giveaway! Ends 11/21

Fall has arrived, and cooler weather has come with it. Whether or not you know it, your warm house is an open invitation to unwanted guests looking for a cozy winter vacation: rodents. Each fall, rodents migrate from their outdoor “summer home” to the warmth, food and shelter of their “winter timeshare” – your house!

Being human has its perks, like having a cozy house to enjoy during the winter, but imagine having to survive as a mouse? Try your luck by playing “Mouse in a House” – a choose-your-own-adventure game that puts you in the shoes of a rodent looking to survive the upcoming harsh winter season – try your best to stay alive and see how long you last!

Orkin uses the latest technology and unparalleled training to develop an effective treatment that's right for your home. To learn more about pest control grounded in science or to schedule an inspection, visit or call 1-800-800-ORKIN®.

Wubble Bubble Ball Product #Review! #Sponsored #WubbleBall #ChristmasGiftGuide #HolidayGiftGuide

My children and I really enjoyed playing with the Wubble Bubble Ball! We couldn't get it to blow up all the way, and we will try again to get it to work. But we enjoyed it the size we did get it to blow up to. (When I can get my husband to check it out, I will take and add new photos of the ball, as it can inflate up to 3 feet!) The age recommendation says ages 6 and up, but my five year old played with it just fine. Just make sure that you spend some time blowing it up before you get the kids excited about playing with it. I would also do it carefully, and be patient. It might take a little longer than three minutes. Use oil!

My seven year old son has trouble catching, and so does my five year old daughter. This ball is great because they can grab onto it and the sides to catch it, and it helps with their motor skills and hand/eye coordination. We made a triangle at first and took turns throwing it back and forth. We all had fun playing with it, catching it, and throwing it up in the air and seeing how far up it would go. When you throw it up high, it goes up high!

My husband got it to blow up to three feet! This ball is making my children laugh and laugh. I haven't heard this much laughter in my house in a long time. It's wonderful. I will add photos soon.

The Wubble Ball helps children learn how to catch, and to not be afraid to catch a ball. As some balls can hurt children's faces when they catch them in their arms and when the balls hit their noses or mouths. I totally recommend that everyone add the Wubble Bubble Ball to your 2014 Christmas and Holiday Wish Lists!

Target selected the Wubble™ Bubble Ball as a 2014 Top Toy for the Holiday Season. It was listed among other popular toys and games that are sure to be on every holiday wish list.

Wubble Bubble Ball is a Family Fun Toy Of The Year Award Winner. The 25 winners are featured in the November 2014 issue of Family Fun Magazine.

Inspired by his children's wish for a real bubble to play with, NSI President Frank Landi developed the Wubble™ Bubble Ball to keep children's love for fun, active play alive.

Wubble has won numerous toy awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award, a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, a Mr. Dad Approved Award, a Parent's Choice Award and the Dr. Toy Best 100 Picks Award and more!

Wubble Ball is available at Target, Toys R Us and online at Wubble Ball is on Twitter (@WubbleBall) and Facebook (

Wubble Ball's are not indestructible, but they have a lifetime replacement guarantee. It costs $6.99 to replace a Wubble under the guarantee.

Please take care not to damage your Wubble Ball during inflation. It might be necessary to use a little bit of oil (whatever you have in your kitchen) to insert the pump into the Wubble Ball the first time. If you have any trouble inflating your Wubble ball, you may find this video about "How to Inflate a Wubble Ball" helpful:
