HeartSong & Magic Cabin Sponsor Spotlight Review

I got this Enchanting Earthenware Ceramic Mushroom Lamp from the Magic Cabin to review for Valentine's along with this Washable My Little Beating Heart Pillow from HearthSong.
Aren't they just adorable?  I got the Mushroom Lamp for myself because I just have always wanted something like that but would never buy something like this because we had more important things to spend our money on. And then the Beating Heart I got for Charlie! Yes, my little Yorkie. He has gotten to where is scared of riding and I don't know why so I thought maybe this might keep him calm, especially while we are driving a good while.
But I also got it for the days that I leave him home and I put that next to him so that he hears something and feels the beating heart and maybe he won't be so scared when we leave him home. It is definitely not a toy and won't be used as such. When we are all home, it will be put up so that I train him that it's not something he can play with but as a buddy when we aren't around.
This is the product details for the Mushroon Lamp:
This enchanting ceramic lamp features hand-painted art with Bramble the Elf and his animal friends frolicking in the forest. Holes in the top project warm light dots onto the ceiling. Includes 2 light bulbs. Made of earthenware. Size: 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"W.

•Charming hand-painted art
•Bramble the Elf frolics with his animal friends
•Holes in the top project dots onto the ceiling
•Includes 2 light bulbs
•8-1/2 inches high x 7-1/2 inches wide
I know that they are calling it a lamp but to me it's more like a nightlight and that is how we are going to use it in the kitchen.  I thought it was perfect for that since Mike hates to see any kind of light while sleeping. He likes to sleep in pitch black and I like a little light so I can see where I am going when I have to wake up at night.
And then this is the description of the Beating Heart:
Based on the human heart's ability to naturally sync with the heart of another during an embrace, the huggable My Little Beating Heart Pillow soothes and relaxes by creating a pulse that mimics a real heart at rest. In the hands of a small child, the pillow puts him or her at ease so it's a great take-along on trips to new places.

• 9-volt battery included
• Strap attaches it to a stroller
• Each rhythm is unique
• Removable, washable cover
• Comes in a cute heart-shaped box
The Beating Heart is very cute and I will do my best to make sure that Charlie doesn't play or tear it up.  You put a  9 volt battery in and then it will start working. What I also love about this is that the outside covering has felt in the back so that you can take it off and wash it so hopefully Charlie won't get it too dirty but if he does, I sure am glad that they made it so that the cover come off. Otherwise, we would have to throw it away but not now!
Both Magic Cabin and HearthSong have alot of Valentine's Day Gifts to choose from and you really need to go check them out and look at all the cute things that they have! Below is a Valentine's Day Doll from Magic Cabin that I almost got instead of the lamp.
But then after realizing we only have one small girl in the immediate family and she's getting a little too old for some things, I decided instead of getting something for her, I got the Mushroom Light for me!
And then from the HearthSong site I was going to get one of these necklaces to put up for at least one of the girls for Christmas but I knew if they both didn't get the same thing, they say I care more about the other, so now they both get the same almost presents. Might be different colors or personalized but it's the same product. So, instead something just told me to get what was in front of me, which was the Beating Heart Pillow.
These look really nice and any of your family members that are girls would love to get either one of these. I hope I have given you some great ideas on what and where and with whom you can shop with for your loved one's Valentine's Day gift. 
This was in Magic Cabin's About Us section:
From our humble beginnings in 1989, to our full-color, full-size catalog of today, Magic Cabin has been guided by the simple notion that children's lives are enriched by ample time for open-ended, creative, imaginative play. We believe in good-old-fashioned make believe and in children's innate need to interact with simple, natural toys and crafts.

While childhood becomes endangered we pioneer towards protecting this special time in life by conscientiously selecting products that are beautiful and enchanting, sturdy and safe, and best of all, FUN.
This is HearthSong's story:
Since its beginning in 1983, HearthSong has been committed to helping parents follow their instincts to provide their children with age-appropriate, wholesome, quality playthings. That's because at HearthSong, we believe childhood is a vital chapter in life-a special time when children can be occupied with the joy of being children.
And, equally importantly, a time when children need to experience as much creative, imaginative play as possible because kids experience so many of life's first lessons through play.

The first HearthSong catalog was printed in black and white, with pencil drawings of carefully selected toys and books and mailed from the home of founder Barbara Kane by her family. The name HearthSong was chosen to reflect core family values - the Hearth, a traditional symbol for the center of the home, and Song, a symbol of family spirit and of a special playfulness that parents and children enjoy together.

Over the next 25 years, HearthSong evolved into a nationally known and respected source for quality children's toys, games and crafts. Parents who found unique toys for their children decades ago tell us they're now thrilled to be finding the same kinds of educational, entertaining toys to give to their children's children.
