Fandangling Review & Giveaway: Turn Any Ceiling Fan into a Mobile!

When Big Pea was a tiny Pea, diaper changes were not fun!  We would lye her on the changing table in her nursery and she would flip, flop, cry and everything else you can think of while we changed her diaper.  I remember saying to my husband “isn’t there something we can attach to the wall above her changing table or on the ceiling so that she can engage something other than the thought of taking flight off of the changing table”?  We unfortunately came up with no answers at the time and I wish that I had been introduced to Fandangling back then!

What is Fandangling?
I know what your thinking…Fan..dang…what..who?  Fandangling is an ingenious little product that turns ANY ceiling fan into a mobile!  The idea was born when inventor Anne, a SAHM of 2,  had her first little peanut Lia, who loved to stare at the ceiling fan!  One day she decided to make the fan a little more interesting to look at and added a few “decorations”, which eventually turned into Fandangling.

How does it work?
Fandangling comes with five stuffed friends that are attached to a string with a piece of velcro attached to the end, and five pieces of separate velcro with a sticky back.  Just place the individual pieces of velcro on the the top side of your fan blades and attach the stuffed friends on each blade.  That’s it…instant mobile!

Our Thoughts
We had the opportunity to check out the Safari Fandangling set that came with a giraffe, parrot, rhino, monkey and tiger!  The furry friends are cute, small and fun to look at.  Installation just takes a few minutes and your ready to go!  Although we do not have babies anymore, the girls loved their new Fandangling!  Of course, as any child would, they wanted to turn the fan on high (I think they were hoping to see one fly), so we turned up the speed and the Fandangling’s surprisingly stayed attached at full speed!  Good Velcro!  I think this would make such a fun baby shower gift for the mom to be. We love this idea and think that babies and kids alike will be intrigued by Fandangling!

Buy it!
You can purchase Fandangling online at for just $19.95 + $3 S&H. “Deal”ectible Mommies readers can save an additional 20% by using code: FANDANGLING10 at checkout!  If that wasn’t enough, Fandangling will also donate 10% of your purchase to charity! There’s plenty of different kits to choose from including Butterflies, Underwater, Bugz and more!  You can even build your own customized kit!

Win it!
One lucky “Deal”ectible Mommies reader will win a Fandangling of choice!  Just visit and leave a comment telling me which one is your favorite OR if you would build your own customized kit!

Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart CD Review & Giveaway

We recently had the opportunity to check out the New music CD from Celtic Woman: Songs form the Heart!  For those of you who are not familiar with the 5 member, Irish female ensemble (have you been living under a rock?), this group takes Celtic sound and puts a modern twist on it.  These beautiful women have been all over the Billboard charts and have had 7 sold out U.S. tours!

Songs from the Heart
My husband is a big fan of Celtic Women and although I’ve listened to them in the past, I have not had the opportunity to sit down and listen to an entire CD all the way through.  The Songs from the Heart CD offers the amazing voices that you’ve come to expect from these five amazing women and includes modern hits like Sting’s “Field’s of Gold” and a different spin on Amazing Grace.  Their voices are truly amazing and one of a kind. Not only are the voices of these beautiful women truly amazing, but the combination of instruments like pipes and whistles, percussion’s, bagpipes, piano and more will have you wanting to listen to this CD over and over again.

Celtic Woman’s Song from the Heart CD is a CD that the entire family can enjoy, which seems hard to come by these days.  I popped the disc in the CD player at Lil’ Pea’s nap time and it was just what the doctor ordered.  The music is calm, mellow and the melodies will have you smiling in no time!

Celtic Woman on Tour
Celtic Woman are currently kicking off their 8th U.S. tour, including dates at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and plenty of other venues throughout the U.S.!  Thanks to Team Mom and the new Music Mom’s project, we wil be heading down to LA in May to see Celtic Woman Live in concert!  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to see these women perform live and will have plenty to tell you about when I return.  Want to see Celtic Woman in concert too?  Visit to see all available tour dates!

Win it! 
One lucky “Deal”ectible Mommies reader will Win a Limited Edition Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart CD with a calendar and charm!  Just leave a comment on this post and your entered to win!

Verizon’s Palm Pre Plus: The Unveil!

As many of you are aware, I signed on as an official Verizon Palm Pre Mommy Blogger! This post will kick off a series of 8 posts in attempt to offer you the ultimate review of the Palm Pre Plus! As a mom who spends many hours online social networking and writing, I need a smartphone that can perform when I’m away from my beloved computer, so that I can spend my time on the most important job I have…the job of MOM! The New Palm Pre Plus is said to offer tons of features for moms on the go, and it’s now my mission to dissect this phone and see if it really is the ultimate “mommy” device!

The Unveil

Unboxing a new phone is always fun! As I unboxed the Palm Pre Plus, I immediately noticed it’s shiny black exterior, sporting sleek, clean and stylish lines. The phone is much more compact than I had anticipated and much smaller than the smart phone I was carrying previously. I’m a little concerned that I may drop it, so I may have to purchase an outer shell for better hand grip! The included accessories were also small, stylish and straight forward. The packaging was minimal, compact and I could tell the company put much thought into maintaining precious resources, as the packaging didn’t contain sheets of wasted paper and wasted plastic pieces!

What’s inside the box?
- Palm Pre Plus 3G Smartphone
- USB cord
- Wall Charger
- Headphones
- Stylish Carry Case
- Getting Started Guide

All of the included accessories look and feel like quality items.  I immediately noticed the small, stylish wall charger! The wall charger is a small circular object that has “fold-away” wall prongs for easy storage when not charging. The included USB cord plugs into the small charging unit and the other end hooks directly into your phone. This is much different than previous devices I have used and is the first time I have seen a cell phone use a charger such as this. The included headphones can be used while on phone calls or used to listen to music on the phone, an added bonus as I listen to music every day on my phone. The carry case is actually stylish enough that I will actually use it, another added bonus, as many phones do not come with carry cases, let alone good looking ones!

As I powered up the unit, I  noticed the bright colors on the home screen. The picture is sharp and clear and can be used in the “keyboard open” position or the “keyboard closed” position. This phone can be operated by touch OR by manual operation, a feature I know I will love, primarily for texting purposes.

The slider on the phone is easy to use and with just a flick of your thumb, it easily slides open, displaying a small, sleek keyboard. For those who are not in love with touch screen technology, the keyboard offers another avenue of operating the phone. For those who love your touch screen technology, the heat sensitive touch screen works really, really well and I’ll talk about this more in detail in upcoming posts.The back of the phone has a mirrored area above the camera lens, making picture taking easy and ensures you’ll get the right shot every time!

To sum it up, my first impressions of the phone are that it exceeded my expectations in many areas. Although I have not had much time to “get to know” the Palm Pre Plus yet, the little bit that I have used the phone so far tells me that it has much more to offer than my previous smartphone and I’m eager to dive in and take a closer look at the many features the Palm Pre Plus has to offer!

Stay tuned for more on our Palm Pre Plus review!

Disclaimer: Verizon Wireless provided me with the Palm Pre Plus Smartphone and I was given one month of free service to facilitate my review. My thoughts and opinions remain my own!
