Halloween Safety Tips from DealDash

DealDashWith Halloween just a week and a few days away it’s time to think about safety tips. Here safety tips you need to know, from DealDash.

Sure, you can get a great bargain on DealDash, but do you know what else you can get? Tips, tricks, and advice about a multitude of things. Today we are going to be talking about Halloween safety tips. These are very important tips, because with all of the children out on Halloween night it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful. Here are some things that you’ll want to keep in mind about Halloween safety, from DealDash.

Costume Safety

There are few things more important than costume safety. Costume safety can mean the difference between a car being able to see your child at night or not. Be sure that your child’s costume is a good fit, and they are able to see out of the eyes and hear if they have a mask covering their ears.

I know that Halloween is a spooky time where many of the costumes are black, but please make sure that the costume isn’t completely black – and if it is, add a reflective strip so that cars will be able to see your child in the dark.

Stranger Safety

Halloween is one of the few times of the year when children are encouraged to knock on stranger’s doors and speak to them. Children who wouldn’t normally speak to a stranger have no qualms about doing it on Halloween to get candy. If your children are young enough that you want to accompany them to every house, then it’s no problem.

However, if you have a child that’s a bit older who wants to go with their friends instead of mom, dad, or the grandparents then encourage them to use caution. Try to get them to agree to only go to neighbor’s houses that you know. If that isn’t possible, then ask them to send you a quick “check-in” text after every 20 houses. It might not be a “cool” thing to do in front of their friends, but their safety is paramount.

DealDash Bidding to Donate

 

 christmas-treeShopping and bidding on DealDash is perfect for Christmas toys, but once you have won toys for all of your friends and family members, why not win some toys to donate?

DealDash is here to help you figure out how you can be a great person by donating to the less fortunate, but being a savvy shopper as well. With DealDash you don’t have to choose being kind or saving up your money, DealDash can help you get some wonderful things to donate but help you stay frugal as well.

Christmas is a wonderful and fun time for everyone, especially children. Unfortunately there are many families out there that are having trouble paying their bills and don’t have any extra money set aside to get their children presents. By saving money and bidding and winning your own family’s gifts on DealDash you can use the extra savings and turn it into a few toys for the less fortunate children in your town.

If you’re wondering where you should donate your toys, there are many places that distribute toys to children during the holidays. If you’d like to select a child or a family yourself instead of just dropping toys off, you can pick a child or family off the “Angel Tree”. They always have these trees at the mall, and sometimes at other stores, and sometimes the angel trees are available at churches as well. If you would like to drop toys off, there are many Toys For Tots donation drop offs. You can look them up online, and if you drop the toys off, you don’t even have to wrap them! If you would like to donate to older children or teens who aren’t interested in toys, you can always buy clothing or toiletries and give them to your local DSS/DCFS/Social Services offices so that they can distribute them to the kids and teens that are in foster care.

DealDash has not only toys for children, but also some clothing and beauty items that would be great for young adults or teens. Remember, just because a 17-year-old isn’t a cute little kid anymore, they would still love something to unwrap on Christmas.

As with all auctions on DealDash, if you don’t happen to win these items when you bid on them, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) for the retail price, get all of your bids back to use again, get free shipping, AND get to keep of the clock time that you earned as being the highest bidder.

I hope that you have found this article helpful for thinking of ways that you can donate and become a hero for a less fortunate child. Thank you for reading! Go check out DealDash at this link right here. Good Luck and Happy Bidding everyone!

These educational and craft kits are fun, great for elementary school-aged children, and can even be a gift given to a family for the children to share among siblings. If you are a little short on cash and have multiple children in the same household to give a gift to this Christmas, an ALEX kit might be the way to go! You can save money by giving a single gift to a sibling group, they can enjoy it together, and their parents will be happy that there is only 1 extra toy in the house instead of multiple.

As with all auctions on DealDash, if you don’t happen to win these toys when you bid on them, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) for the retail price, get all of your bids back to use again, get free shipping, AND get to keep of of the clock time that you earned as being the highest bidder.

Time to Feed the Baby With DealDash

When a baby has moved past the bottle and is ready for table foods it’s important to have the right tools for the job. DealDash has what you need.

Most babies start eating some very simple table foods around the age of 6 months, and the goal is to have your baby mostly eating table foods rather than formula and baby foods by the time they hit their first birthday. You don’t want to rush your child, but when he or she is ready it’s time to break the bottle habit and learn to eat. The goal is a healthy baby who is happy to eat a variety of foods. Having the right items so your baby is comfortable can be a huge help. DealDash is here to help.

You’re going to need either a high chair or a booster seat. Typically a high chair is for a younger baby and a booster seat is for an older child, but they both have seatbelts and as long as your child can sit by themselves either one is fine depending on what space you have available to devote to your baby’s seating arrangement. DealDash has both high chairs and booster seats available for auction fairly often. Just click on this link here and it will take you to see a few options.

If your baby is ready for some grown up food you should definitely start with some soft cooked veggies, fruits, and pastas. For example, sweet potatoes, peas, and broccoli are all veggies that you can cook until they are soft and then mash them up for your baby. If you’re looking for mashable fruits, try bananas, avocados, and peaches. Sometimes it’s difficult to mash these foods up with a spoon, so I suggest getting a Mash and Serve Bowl.

You can mash up just about any food that’s soft with the Mash and Serve Bowl, such as potatoes, beans, steamed veggies, fruits, eggs. You mash the food and serve your child right from the bowl, which has handy hand holds on the side so they can hold it themselves.

If you’re worried about cleaning the Mash and Serve Bowl – don’t. The Mash and Serve Bowl can be cleaned easily by putting it in the top rack of the dishwasher. If you’re interested in the Mash and Serve Bowl check it out here on DealDash.

After reading this article I hope that you have a better idea of what you might want to get your baby when they are regularly eating table foods. If you are in need of anything for your baby, including kitchen items check out DealDash. Try the Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games section to see what awesome baby products they have coming up. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Curious About Baby Monitors? Ask DealDash!

 

How do you know what type of baby monitor to buy? Well, it depends what you need it for, of course! There are many different types of baby monitor depending on your needs and budget. Let’s talk baby monitors!

In this article we will go over some of the different types and styles of baby monitors and how you use them.  Included in this article is the basic baby monitor, the video baby monitor, and the baby monitor that also tracks movement. All of these baby monitors can be very useful, and serve specific purposes.

The first type of baby monitor that I would like to talk about is the simple, basic, classic baby monitor. This particular baby monitor has two primary functions: for you to hear the baby, and for you to be able to talk to the baby through the monitor. Most of the baby monitors like this also have a few extra functions such as playing music or having a night light built into the monitor. The awesome thing about this type of baby monitor is that it has an extremely long battery life. The biggest drawback of this monitor, of course, is that you can’t see what your baby is up to. I am personally too paranoid for this particular monitor to work for me. People who want to keep an “ear” on on older toddlers or preschoolers while they are in their rooms playing might find this to be a good monitor for them.

Vtech Safe & Sound Baby Monitoring System

The next type of baby monitor that we will discuss is more in my comfort zone – the video baby monitor. This baby monitor is probably the most popular type of baby monitor that is on the market right now. People love to be able to see their babies on the full color screens, and most of the parent hand held units are approximately the size of a cell phone, so it’s easy to take with you around the house or even out to the mailbox. All of the baby monitors of this type that I have come across have extra features such as being able to play multiple songs with a touch of the button on the parental unit, night vision cameras, and temperature gages. When my 4 year old daughter was a baby this is the type of baby monitor that I got for her. It’s still got tons of life left in it, and I am now using it with my 3 month old son.

Summer Infant In View Digital Video Monitor

The final type of baby monitor that I would like to discuss today is the video monitor with movement sensor. This is the type of monitor that I feel is the absolute best and safest – it combines all of the features of the other two types of baby monitors, but has an attachment that monitors movement as well. If there is no movement in a set amount of time then the monitor will alert you that there might be a problem and you can check it out right away. I personally have an extremely high end one that sends alerts to my cell phone, and I can see graphs of my baby’s breathing patterns as well. This type of baby monitor has given me more peace of mind than anything else.

No matter which type of baby monitor that you choose you will definitely save money by bidding on one on DealDash. If you don’t happen to win, you can always buy the monitor at retail price and have all of your bids returned to you with the BIN (Buy It Now) program. They will even throw in free shipping!

After reading this article I hope that you have a better idea of what type of baby monitor that would be best for your child and family. All of these baby monitor have their own specific uses, and I myself own two different types, and use them in different situations. Good luck in finding your ideal baby monitor! How about starting your baby monitor search on DealDash? They have all types of baby monitors as well as just about anything else that a baby might need. Check out the Toys, Kids, & Baby section and see how you can save. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
