ro-sham-bo baby: Sunglasses for the whole family

ro-sham-bo baby is a family owned and operated company based in sunny San Diego, California.  They make the highest quality and raddest baby, kids and matching adult sunglasses in the world with an awesome 90's nostalgic flair.

Their sunglasses are made in Italy to ensure safety and quality.  They're flexible with lightweight form retention.  They are the lightest sunglasses and unbelievably comfortable!  Each pair are BPA, phthalate and harmful chemical free.  They bend, stretch, and twist right back into shape.  They even float in water.

Polarized lenses come standard in adult sizes.  Molded logos eliminate the need for nasty painted logos to come off in babies mouths.  This company is so confident in their shades that they offer a damage replacement guarantee if your frames break or if you happen to lose a lens.  They will send you a replacement lens free of charge!  How cool is that?

And to top off all this awesomeness, every purchase supports autism charity!  ro-sham-bo baby has autism in their family, so this mission is near and dear to their hearts.

I can't get enough of their sunglasses.  I want to get some for everyone in my family.  What a great product.  Check them out today!

Bouncy Bands: Wiggle While You Work

I am a Special Education teacher and a big fan of Bouncy Bands.  These inexpensive and innovative bands allow students to move while they work at their desk.  Students can bounce their feet, stretch their legs or rest their feet.  

I have seen a big improvement in my student who uses Bouncy Bands.  I knew a yoga ball would not be the best option for my student, but Bouncy Bands were worth a try.  I'm happy to announce that they work wonders.  His Bouncy Bands help him stay engaged and relaxed.  We have them on his desk and chair to help re-energize and refocus.  They are also very sturdy, quiet and easy to install.

87% of students surveyed reported that Bouncy Bands help them feel calmer when they take tests.  With the increased pressure of high stakes testing, imagine how many students this would help!  If you're a teacher, check them out today!  If you're a parent, maybe Bouncy Bands would help your child in his/her classroom.  Ask your teacher for permission to give them a try.
