Don't Let the Pigeon Run This App Review

Don't Let the Pigeon Run This App is by far one of our favorite apps! We got it for the iPad, but it is also available for  iPhone and the iPod Touch. The best part for Big J is that it is interactive and has three different story modes that let you create different stories over and over again. My favorite part is when your story is ready you get to shake the pigeon to get started! (You either use your finger or you can actually shake your iPad) The only downside I have found is that the basic story line is the same no matter which story you choose. You can change some of the choices but the rest is basically the same. While that annoyed me after a couple stories neither Big J or Little J seemed to care at all.

Three unique storytelling modes

  • Mode one already has stories created for you, so you can just sit back and listen. 
  • Mode two allows your child (or you because you know you want to) choose from three choices for a number of different questions. Your choices become part of the story. 
  • Mode three allows your child to speak any answer they want to the questions. This has lead to many a crazy story in our house.
Other Cool Features
  • Starring appearance by the Pigeon, voiced by Mo Willems. - This is the perfect pigeon voice.
  • Also starring YOU! Record your own voice as part of the story.
  • Pigeon-drawing tutorial with Mo. - Your drawing also becomes part of the story.
  • Personalized vault for six of your favorite Big Pigeon stories..
  • Read-along option.
  • Shake-and-tap interactivity.
  • Pigeon-y sound effects and music.

PediaCare® Infant and Children's Liquid Acetaminophen Review and Giveaway

I remember the first time Big J got a fever. As a first time mom I was freaked out and not really sure what to do. Thankfully I could rely on PediaCare and their Infant Acetaminophen. Now they have improved on the dosing methods to make it easier for parents and safer for children. 

PediaCare® now offer additional product enhancements, including age-appropriate dosing devices.  Infant products will now contain a special dosing syringe and flow restrictors on the bottles; children’s products, for ages 2 to 11 years, will have the bottles with flow restrictors, and continue to contain dosing cups. Both infant and children’s formulations will continue to have weight-based instructions on the package, as well. Please note that there will be a transition period where both the current infant products and the new infant products will be on store shelves. It is always recommended that you read and follow the package directions and it is more important while both concentrations are available. 

  • PediaCare Children's Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever
  • For ages 2 -11
  • Flow restrictor bottle and dosing cup
  • Dye free Cherry
  • Cherry or grape flavors
  • Weight and age-based dosing instructions on package
