Every mom
will receive a goody bag that includes
a dwink universal drink box holder and a pair of BabyLegs!

The dwink box
was invented by a mom who was tired of telling her kids, "careful, don't squeeze it, don't squeeze it!"
This great holder is perfectly safe in the dish washer, has a non-skid bottom, easy-to-grip handles and it comes in a great array of colors. Here's to making our lives just a little bit less messy!

BabyLegsBabyLegsBabyLegsWe've got the cutest little BabyLegs! These fashionable leg covers won't outgrow baby and most fit newborn to size 10! Plus, they have so many uses! BabyLegs mesmerize young babies who find the patterns on their legs very interesting. BabyLegs worn under pants cover that bit of skin without the fun of having to wrestle tights on and off a girl. They are great knee pads for the active crawler. When Tia Carrere was on Oprah recently, her daughter Bianca wore her BabyLegs on her arms- another cute use. We have no doubt that you will find even more uses for this great item!


Every mom will take home a "best & hottest" product (get the details on how moms will choose):

connector system, and you can configure it in endless ways to fit your style.
