Little Buckeye Children’s Museum Review

Being an aunt to a three-year old I am always looking for places to go and things to do.  I searched for something between Streetsboro and Columbus so he could get a break while we were driving back to his mommy & daddy’s this past weekend.

It was a new adventure in Mansfield, Ohio visiting Little Buckeye Children’s Museum.


From the outside I wasn’t expecting much, but as we approached the door I was pleasantly surprised day the colors and whimsical look as we entered.

It was a Sunday, they were open noon – 5 pm and we got there right about noon.  The price for both of us was $16 and we could play all day.  We hung up our coats and dove right in.

On the first floor there were Lego tables, a pretend bank, musical instruments, construction site, beauty shop, grocery store, dinosaur dig and a theatre.  The first floor also had a cool interactive water display.  My nephew was in love.  He spent 90 minutes running between displays and interacting with other kids – I just sat there and watched.

My little guy was 100% entertained and it took everything I had to get him to go upstairs to look around.  The second floor had even more rooms and activities.

I was a little disappointed I didn’t see an elevator or handicap access to go upstairs and once up there I was not able to locate a restroom.

The second floor has a cute area to host a party, dentist office, train and automobile room and much more. It was very spacious and much less noisy than downstairs.

My little one loved the trains and was happy to spend another hour up on the second floor.


There was the option to purchase limited snacks and drinks if you needed and if you wanted you could get a stamp and come back. Since it was Sunday there wasn’t a lot open so we stuck inside the museum.

Overall we spent about 3 hours at Little Buckeye Children’s Museum and had a great time.  I am sure we will go back and visit – maybe even take mom and dad with us.

If you need a halfway place off I-71 in Ohio stop off at exit 169 and visit the Little Buckeye Children’s Museum.

I have the option to buy this Alfani top for $57.50 should I really like it or I can return it and get one of the six items I have waiting for me.

What will I do?

I am not 100% sure yet, but I do know that I loved my shirt and am really considering purchasing it.

What do you think?

Overall I am satisfied, I will keep sharing my fashion choices over the next few months and you can let me know what you think.

Lash Like A Boss

Every once in a while I am sent items/products from Influenster to test out and then share with everyone my honest opinion.

Today I am going to share with you Colossal Big Lash Mascara from Maybelline.

I tested this product out a few times to get the hang of using a new brush and trying something different.

Each time my lashes got a little smoother and a little bigger.  I tried using an eyelash brush and an eyelash curler to get the best effects.

This is my series of pictures from start to finish the last time I used The Colossal Big Shot Volum Express Mascara.

I wore my glasses that day and the lashes were so long they touched my lenses.  This was a problem, albeit a good one, that allowed me to experience some big lashes.

The mascara made my overall look professional and put together.  I liked this product, the only negative that I have is that it was very hard to get off even with makeup wipes at the end of the day.

If you have a chance to check it out, you should.  It has a good price point and is readily available at most drug stores and big box stores.
