Noodleroll Soft Blocks Review and Giveaway

Handmade Noodleroll Soft Blocks

Review & Giveaway

With a 7 month old and his temptations to grab and smash everything that he can get his little hands upon, it was refreshing to find these handmade soft blocks made by the very talented Noodleroll!

I was excited to receive them and then once I did I was even more thrilled. The packaging was adorable, wrapped in a mesh drawstring bag, but I was elated to see the size of the blocks, as they were much larger than I anticipated. The blocks measure approximately 4.5” x 4.5” x 4.5”

Made out of very soft cotton, they are great for little fingers. Also designed to stimulate the tactile nature of your baby, two sides feature a terrycloth material to counter the smooth texture of the additional sides.

Additionally, the blocks feature patterns ranging from construction equipment, to dragons, to cars to seahorses and much much more!

Noah immediately took to the blocks grabbing both at the same time – smushing them to his face and then slamming them to the floor. He really did enjoy playing with these great blocks.

Easily washable, these blocks are perfect for your nursery or even as a gift for a friend!

Now on to the giveaway! Noodleroll, the makers of the these classic soft blocks, have graciously offered one set of their soft blocks to one lucky “Going Green with Noah” followers!

The "Green" Dog

In an effort to become a little more diverse in the "Going Green" initiative, here are some tips and tricks in helping become a little bit more "green" when it comes to your second babies in the family - your dogs!

1) ADOPT / RESCUE !!!!
* This is the easiest thing to do! Go to your local shelter or rescue group - there are so many animals that need a home, including abandoned purebreds!

Miss Sandy Marie - My rescued baby Corgi!

2) Buy recycled toys
* Or repurpose old durable childrens toys - these can be found at your local thrift store

3) Use Eco-Friendly Shampoos
* Did you know that most standard dog shampoos are filled with parabens?!!

4) Compost your dog poo.

5) Recycle your dog food bags and cans
* Imagine how much space these take up in the landfill!

6) Go organic....if you can!
* Did you know that most dog food products in the supermarket consist of reconstituted animal by-products? These are low-grade wastes from the slaughterhouses. Natural and organic pet foods use meats that are raised in sustainable and humane ways. Certified organic products, such as those for humans, must meet strict USDA standards.

Of course these are only a few steps, but as I have mentioned before, it takes baby steps to become green!

Who wouldn't want to give this little guy (Marquis) the best that there is?
