My kids have officially gone back to school and they could not be more excited. I have to admit that this is my favorite time of year too, not just because they are happy or even because mom needs a break by that time, but because of back to school shopping. I have an obsession with buying school supplies and snacks and anything related to back to school.
As you can imagine, when Babble Boxx asked me to share their 123 Back to School Ready box, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. When it showed up, I was not disappointed in the least. Here is what they sent us:
Wemo Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plug
This was an exciting product to receive because we consider ourselves technologically savvy and this is something fun to play with. We ended up putting it in the kid’s bathroom for when Lexi plugs in her straightening iron for just in case. She has left it on many times and the Wemo allows me to make sure it is off even when I am not home. Simply plug it into the wall, download the app, connect it to your Wi-Fi and use it to control whatever you want from your phone. Works great with lights and appliances and of course that pesky iron! I love that I can even set up a schedule and timers. Now we are on our way to having a Smart Home, just need a few more.
Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer
The beginning of the school year means all the germs I have kept at bay for 3 months, come back to bite me! This is also when I stock up on hand sanitizer, so it makes sense that the Babble Boxx sent hand sanitizer in their Back to School box. Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer is a 24 hour, FDA-compliant and water based hand sanitizer that kills 99.99% of germs. It is environmentally friendly, which both kids love and stays put during the day, even after washing their hands sweating. We received a Foam Hand Sanitizer, that Lexi keeps in her locker and a Spray Hand Sanitizer that stays in Gavin’s backpack.
Pure Growth Organics
- Organic Chocolate Animal Crackers-Shaped like Mickey Mouse
- Organic White Cheddar Popcorn-each bag is only 90 calories
- Organic Crispy Rice Squares-vegan and gluten free and made with a little brown rice
I would say that these were the favorites in the box because of, well…food! While Gavin preferred the popcorn and Lexi can’t get enough of the rice squares, they literally fought over the chocolate animal crackers. I love that they are yummy organic snacks that my kids enjoy.
- Mighty Zipper Pouch
- Jumbo Brights Neon Colored Pencils
- 2-in-1 Flip Side Notebook
- Yummy Yummy Scented Gel Pens
- OOLY eraser
While the snacks were the kid’s favorites, these were mine, at least until Lexi stole them and claimed them for her own. She has developed my addiction to cute school supplies and also all things writing utensils. The loves the flip side notebook the most because one side is lined for journaling and the other blank for doodling.

- Tangy Apple 3-in-1 Conditioning Shampoo
- Morning Miracle Mousse Styling Spray
- Silly Slicker Ultimate Sculpting Gel
Since Lexi has claimed the OOLY products for herself, Gavin took all the Snip-its hair products for himself. He loves Tangy Apple and the spray and gel are great for him to keep his faux hawk perfect.

Teal Duck Tape®
Last and most definitely not least, Duck Tape! This is something else that they kids fought over but in the end, Lexi won. First of all, she decorates everything in Duck Tape, especially her composition notebooks. Also, her favorite color is teal and yes that was her argument as to why it should be hers. In the end, she promised to make him a Duck Tape wallet and he gave in. Luckily the Duck® brand recently introduced a new section to their website, dedicated to Duck Tape® Makers™ with new videos, articles, projects, and ideas. I’m sure wallets are in that section as it helps Duck Tape® Makers™ share their ideas with others.
