At this point in my life, it has been ten years since I have been pregnant, but I remember going through the process. I was married at the time, and there were times I felt great and times I felt not so great. I didn't have a really rough pregnancy except for my blood pressure. Thankfully everything went well, and the delivery practically went off without a hitch.
When I was contacted by Fun Fridge Magnets to review their Pregnancy Moods and New Mom/New Dad magnets, I jumped at the chance. I have two friends who are currently pregnant, and one of their baby showers was coming up. So I knew this would be a special gift to give to them, and I knew it would be unique. All the company asked was for my honest review of the product (and, of course, to share the thoughts of the recipients of this gift).
If you have never heard of Fun Fridge Magnets, let me give you a little background. These are high-quality magnets that go on your fridge, and as you can see in the video, you can move the little marker to how you are feeling. Okay, I realize that this might sound cheesy, but stop and think for a moment. We have busy lives, right? Do we always have a chance to talk to our significant other and let him/her know how we are feeling? I know I don't, and when I was pregnant, I often wasn't even asked by my husband. And face it, ladies. Men don't often share how they are feeling nor ask how we are feeling. This is a simple way (with pictures for the guys who struggle to read words--just had to put that in for fun) to quickly share with everyone in the house how you are feeling. "Dad" can easily find out if "Mom" is having a good, tired, bad, or any other kind of day.
Now, let me tell you about the reaction of my friend. I wrapped up these magnets, and when she opened this, she got a big smile! And everyone was curious about them. I was happy because even though "Dad" was not at the baby shower, I was giving them something for the two of them, not just the upcoming baby. I don't think anyone had ever seen these, and it was certainly all my friend could do to put these down and not play with them since she had more gifts to open!
So I highly recommend these for those who are expecting or have just become parents. These magnets are inexpensive, and I will venture to say no one else will be giving these at the baby shower!
When you check them out to purchase these magnets, be sure to follow them on facebook, too, so you can stay up to date with their most recent news and deals. Be sure to watch for a giveaway coming up very soon!
The company sent me a free product in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
