At Home Moms.com Product Reviews


Seal os Approval Sony Mylo
When Sony asked me to review the Mylo I assumed they were hoping the product would be a great tool for moms. After using the product for two weeks Sony probably did not expect this outcome to the review.
The Mylo is what Sony calls a “personal communicator”. It looks like a sleek smart phone but it is quite different then any smart phone on the market. The Mylo is a phone, and an instant messenger…and a camera… and a web browser, and a wireless email device… and a game console, all built into one beautifully designed, compact package. Mylo looks like an iPhone and sports a gorgeous full color display and elegant slide-out full size keyboard that even the sexiest smart phones on the market today would envy. What makes the Mylo so different from the typical phone is that it does not work on a standard cellular network like Verizon, ATT, or Sprint. Instead it connects to a Wi-Fi internet network. A Wi-Fi network is a wireless connection to the Internet that is typically available in a relatively small area such as an office, a coffee shop like Starbucks, or a school campus. If you have a wireless Internet set-up at home the Mylo would connect to the internet just as your computer does. The advantage of a Wi-FI network over a cellular network is that the connection cost is typically free. The disadvantage is that Wi-Fi is not nearly as pervasive as cellular networks. There in-lies our surprise for Sony. The limited availability of Wi-Fi networks makes connection opportunities unreliable for busy moms on the go. For example, there would be no connectivity starting with the car ride to drop off the kids at school, the 30 minute stop at the grocery store, and through the ride back home to unpack the groceries. Moms running around town need to be able to make and receive phone calls and text messages reliably, at a moments notice. Constant access is a must for Mom but this is not the case with her kids. Here is the surprise Sony, I think the Mylo makes a fantastic alternative to the cell phone for kids. Here is why:

Wireless hotspots are available at the places your kids typically hang out such as school, the library, coffee shops, and a friend’s house. Perfect for the Mylo to connect and allow your kid to make a phone call, send text messages, and check email without exceeding your cell phone usage allotment. Imagine unlimited texting and calling for free! And for those parents concerned about cellular radiation exposure to their kids, the Mylo uses radio frequency which is not associated with the dangerous cellular exposure theories.

One of the things that makes the Mylo so clever is that it leverages free internet based services such as Skype for making free phone calls, AOL instant messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and Google IM for free instant messaging, and any free web service for email. All you need to do is register (if you have not already) with these services and then login through your Mylo to start calling and texting away.

If you are contemplating the purchase of a phone for your child, Sony’s Mylo deserves strong consideration. If you want more specific details on the Mylo or want to compare prices go here.


Seal os Approval Purex Laundry Detergent
Purex has introduced a new formula that claims to work as well in cold water as well as warm and hot water. We took it to the test and we were pleasantly surprised by the results. Purex used in cold water did a great job on our kids dirty clothes! Not only did our clothes come out smelling great and looking clean, we also saved money! Not only is Purex half the cost of the competition, but, according to the folks at Purex, washing in cold water saves you about 17 cents per load.

Purex laundry detergent gets an At Home Moms.com Seal of Approval for making an affordable detergent that WORKS!


Seal os Approval Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition
This isn’t the calculator we grew up with! Texas Instruments has introduced a new graphing calculor that helps engage students in math and science. It has 30 preloaded software applications and enough memory to hold up to 94 applications. It has a built in USB port and is permitted for use on many standadized tests like the SAT and ACT.

Seal os Approval Wilson SOG (Slip-On Glove) and A3000 Baseball Glove
Wilson scores a home run for creating two amazing ball gloves. The SOG glove is a great glove for kids since it comfortably forms to a child’s small hand and allows for easier catching. The A3000 is Wilson’s top-of-the line glove. Parents, coaches and professionals are proudly using this glove as it’s the Official Ball Glove of Major League Baseball. We took the gloves to the local parks to have parents and kids try them. Everyone wanted to know where they could get these gloves! www.Wilson.com.


Seal os Approval “Sweet Dreams” by Vickilew

The Sweet Dreams CD not only relaxed my daughter, but it helped ME wind down and fall asleep. The Sweet Dreams CD provides soothing music and positive, happy, imaginative imagery that relaxes both the body and the mind. My daughter asks for the Sweet Dreams CD every night. And, we are happy to oblige! The Sweet Dreams CD is available for $12.99 at Vickilew.com.


Seal os Approval Kellogg’s Pop-tarts Snak-Stix, Frosted Cookies & Creme
We tried the “Cookies & Creme” variety Snak-Stix and loved the delicious chocolate taste. Although Pop-tarts Snak-Stix may have more vitamins and minerals than most cookies, they are definitely the messier alternative. The Snak-Stix leave a trail a crumbs, albeit tasty crumbs. This is a better snack for older kids…and even adults.

TDSdirect.com offers a wide array of cleansers, masques, toners, moisturizers, special skin care items, foundations, and lipsticks. I was impressed with the beauty scrub and the masques which left my face feeling amazingly soft. I also recommend the Vitamin E cream which smells particularly good and feels like silk on your skin. TDS is renowned all over North America for the fine quality and consistence of their foundations. This product is very good and provides excellent coverage without that feeling you are wearing a heavy makeup. This product is a value at $7.50 per bottle.

Therese Slevin Pirz has authored The Kids Stuff books which are available in French, Spanish, German and Italian! Each book contains over 1,000 phrases and sentences with the pronunciations. What is so great about these books is that they present everyday phrases that parents use to speak to their children such as “Daddy has gone to work” and “Did you make your bed?”.

Seal os Approval Medela Classic Breast Pump
Forget the manual pumps! The Medela Breast Pump is the most powerful pump on the market. In less than 20 minutes you can pump out 2 feedings with no discomfort. It may be more expensive than it’s competitors, but it’s worth it. Who has the time to spend an hour pumping? And who really wants to?

Seal os Approval Noah’s Ark Gymini
The Noah’s Ark Gymini by The Maya Group is an innovative, entertaining, and stimulating activity for babies 0-12 months. The soft arches over baby’s head attaches to a soft, colorful mat, and hangs five different, exciting animals, each incorporating its own unique intrigue. The soft mat has its own activites for baby to explore. This is fabulous activity center that gets baby to interact with colorful, friendly creatures. Be prepared for lots of giggles and smiles! You can find the Noah’s Ark Gymini at E-Toys right here in the At Home Moms Plaza!

Seal os Approval Diaper Genie
An At Home Mom’s Seal of Approval goes to one of the greatest inventions to come into my home since the computer. The Diaper Genie is the easiest diaper disposal system I have ever seen. I simply put the dirty diaper in the mouth of the genie and twist. It’s that easy. When the diaper genie is full, you simply twist the plastic bag cutter on the top of the lid and tie the bag in a knot. A sausage like strand of diapers comes out the bottom and you throw it in the trash can. And the beauty of it all? THERE IS NO STINK! Everyone carries the diaper genie refills which cost around $4.30 and each refill lasts for about one month.

Seal os Approval Graco Open Top 3-Speed Swing
Graco’s Open Top 3-speed Swing gets an at Home Mom’s Seal of Approval. I particularly like the open top feature, which aleviates any chance of hitting a child’s head while putting him/her in or taking him/her out. The 3-speed feature is nice when baby gets a little older and a little heavier, as the 2nd and 3rd speeds are too fast for a newborn. I used my swing all the time and I have never had to replace the batteries. I really like that! For any fussy baby, the Graco swing is the second best thing to being held by Mom (or Dad).

Seal os Approval Peg Perego Prima Pappa High Chair
An At Home Mom’s seal of approval goes to the Peg Perego Prima Pappa high chair. There are many features about this high chair that I am impressed with, the first being its ability to recline. For those babies who are new to the high chair experience, the recline feature makes baby feel like she/he isn’t falling forward. Also, it’s very easy to clean…which is very important. And, its wheels allow it to roll around the kitchen so it takes no effort to turn your baby facing you at a whim. I like the way it folds up quite compactly and fits easily in the truck of our car when we are going to Grandma’s house for dinner.

Seal os Approval Baby-Hold Me Safe
Baby-Hold Me Safe by Carrousel Concepts wins an At Home Mom’s Seal of Approval for it’s ingenuity and its well thought out safety features. An estimated 25,000 shopping cart related injuries are treated annually in the emergency room (in a 4/97 study). As you Moms know, it is difficult to go grocery shopping with a baby. This product makes it so easy! It is simple to affix to the shopping cart and a cushy belt wraps securely around the child. There are even two Velcro loops that can be used to secure baby’s favorite toy (hopefully he/she will be more interested in the toy, than in the foodstuff on the shelves). You can even use it to secure your child to a high chair. My baby is almost 28 weeks and she is somewhat able to sit unassisted. I was concerned that she might topple over. However, The Baby-Hold Me Safe made me feel safe strolling my little girl up and down the aisles.

Seal os Approval Mustela Baby Bath
An At Home Mom’s Seal Of Approval goes to a fabulous skin care line for babies called Mustela. Part of my daughter’s bedtime routine is a bath, which she looks forward to every night. However, I found that over time her skin was drying out. On my quest to find another brand of soap, I had trouble finding a product that doesn’t contain SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), which some studies have found to be carcinogenic. SLS is the chemical that makes the soap foam. It is the same chemical found in household cleaning agents. Mustela smells good and leaves my baby’s skin soft and smooth. You can find Mustela at the Baby Center, right here in the At Home Moms Plaza.

Seal os Approval Evenflo’s Pack N’Play
Evenflo’s Pack N’ Play gets An At Home Mom’s Seal Of Approval for it’s travel ease and attention to detail. While many of the bassinet/playpens have been recalled due to protruding rivets that pose a strangulation risk, Evenflo’s Pack N’Play has not. It is easy to put together and dismantle. Moreover, it fits very compactly in the trunk of our vehicle, leaving plenty of space for our two suitcases, our daughter’s stroller, high chair, diaper bags, and all else. It is amazingly light and conveniently contained in a carrying case. Putting it together is literally a snap, just a few levers to press and buttons to snap and the bassinet/playpen is ready for use. It looks great too!
