{Kids Corner} Good Habits SoapTime® Review and Holiday Reco!

While my holiday recommendations in my annual buying guides are always review with giveaway, this product is an exception to my rules. Mostly because I received the evaluation unit way before Christmas. But if after reading this, you guys decide you love it, and just 'gotta have it', let me know by posting a comment here and I'll reach out to the powers that be and see if a giveaway is still possible.

I actually received the first unit months ago, but it didn't quite work well and I was un-sure of what to do. Normally I wouldn't be, when I work with a brand directly I would just let them know, be it a damaged item, ill-fitting item etc.

But this review came to me via BSM Media and I didn't want to make waves. I didn't want to put BSM Media in a bad position. But I also realized that I would never be comfortable being less than honest. (In fact it took us almost a year of being approached before we opted for becoming a 'PR friendly' blog.) So I wrestled with what to do and ultimately decided honesty was the best policy.

I let BSM Media know that the first SoapTime® I received did not work, and they couldn't have been more understanding about it. I was given the option of having a replacement sent out, or if I didn't like the idea, not to post.

But when I got my first SoapTime® I immediately fell in love with it, I thought it was a fantastic idea, and I couldn't wait to share it with you guys. So when it stopped working I was really bummed. Glad however, that I had not yet tried it out on my younger nieces and nephews. I opted for a replacement, and have tested the replacement a little over 30 days to make sure it was working properly before I posted about it. As you all know I'm 'cool auntie' and so I put this in the bathroom and everytime little ones come over they can't wait to use it! My nieces, nephews and godchildren all love it!

My Take

I am so glad that I opted for a replacement unit. I honestly wish I could take on an additional giveaway right now, and I wish I had the time to make a video of it so you could see it in action! SoapTime® instills good habits in a way that is fun and totally engaging. My nieces, nephews and godchildren totally loved it! They liked the soap scents, the songs and factoids! I love the LED light show too (perfect if you are in the bathroom at night and don't want to turn on your overhead light.)

You can follow @mysoaptime on twitter and keep up with them on Facebook too!

I wonder if there is a way for them to tweak this product and utilize a no touch sensor technology too? That would be perfect!
