being MVP: Summertime Fun with HABA + #Giveaway

Summertime Fun with HABA + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received the following products from HABA for review. All opinions are my own.

With the weather here in Southern California reaching the high 90's, we have been enjoying summer a wee bit early. I am a huge fan of HABA toys as they are quality made and provides countless hours of play. They have outdone themselves with the perfect treat for when the sun is out.


My kiddos love ice cream and frozen treats. However, many of the store bought ones are full of sugar and other unpronounceable ingredients. I didn't realize how easy it was to make popsicles until Hubs made some watermelon ones the other week. It was pure, fresh watermelon and ice. The kids love these however since our popsicle mold was standard size, it was messy because they couldn't finish before it melted. HABA's silicone popsicle molds provide the perfect solution plus they are loads of fun.


There are 4 molds on each tray with a small handle that Mason and Kenzie can both hold with ease. The penguin popsicle molds are fun in itself even when simply making yogurt popsicles. There are two penguins, an octopus and a fish. Kenzie gets a kick out of these and since she is having a yogurt treat, I don't mind when she asks for a second. Mason just gets excited he gets a popsicle that is just right for his size. He asks for them in the morning and after dinner and gives me a huge smile that melts my heart when he asks so how I can say no?

These are so easy to use in that you just fill with whatever you like (make sure not to flood over to the handle side) and pop into the freezer. No need to loosen the mold with hot water trying to only get the water on one popsicle. These just pop out quickly individually directly from the freezer without leaving any residue on the mold. How amazing is that? Check out my Popsicle Pinterest board I just created after receiving these fabulous molds.


The silicone ice cube molds are also fun for the kids and it encourages them to keep hydrated in the scorching heat. Kenzie enjoys helping me in the kitchen with the molds. They are fun and easy to fill and are the perfect addition to even plain water. What kid wouldn't love a shark or ice cream cone floating around in their cup? Now I just need a larger freezer to accommodate all the molds (with our food) at once!


As you probably already know, Mason loves to cook and was ecstatic to see the Ketchup & Mustard bottles because he is a pro dipper. These are shaped exactly like the bottles in the fridge and when you open up the top, you can squirt some onto your foods. Mason gets a kick out of it but keeps on asking me (or Kenzie) to fix it so he can squirt again. I must admit that I do give the task to Kenzie after he asks me more than 10x. When he grills this summer, he needs to have these on hand!


Kenzie likes flavorful food and was inquisitive when examining the Salt and Pepper Grinders. They are plush yet make the grinding sound just like mama's! These are so much fun and add a new dimension when in the play kitchen. HABA really hit the spot with these products for summer. Every child will be able to have fun indoors and out.
