Light in the Dark App is Fun and Challenging!




The game begins with the discovery that the cute babies of Totems, a colorful undiscovered species, have lost their way in an ancient labyrinth tomb.  Gamers must help the children reunite with the parents.

Players must solve perplexing puzzles and avoid dangerous but equally adorable enemies including mummies and sandmen.  Villains force players to make moves quickly as these treacherous opponents can end a level after a certain amount of time has passed or tackle parent Totems.

Gamers can swipe the screen of their mobile devices to move mirrors, which bend light. Players can also reposition parent Totems, which illuminates surrounding areas in one of three colors.  Baby Totems are only reunited with their parents when basking in the glow of their own preferred hue.  To create colors which are different from those emitted by adult Totems, players blend the light of the parents with each other.

To unlock all content in Light in the Dark, gamers must also spotlight stars on each level, in addition to the baby totems.  The more stars players highlight, the more levels they reveal.

App Review

If you love challenging app games or puzzle games on your phone, you will absolutely love Light in the Dark. I am addicted to it and love to play it when I need to focus on something else besides my little ones. Plus, the kiddies can help figure out how to solve some of the levels too and it is perfect to help the little ones with fine motor skills. 

My three year old son is autistic and loves to complete the first level, where he has to move the light along the line to light up the baby. He gets so excited when he actually does it and it truly helps him with his fine motor skills as well as focusing. So, not only is this game fun for adults, but it is also educational and fun for kids of all ages too.

Check out the trailer for the game - you won't be disappointed:


Not only am I on level 16, I am playing the game regularly and hope to beat Tomb 1 in Egypt fairly soon! This is a game that will have you coming back for more. It is one that challenges you, makes you think, and is enjoyable to play. You can also use hints, you have three free hints and then you can purchase 10 more if you need them, to get through the level...if you get stuck! Save the babies, light up the stars and move up level by level. The more stars you light up, the more levels you will unlock.

Dreft Review & Giveaway #DreftHypo


It is that time of year, again, when the weather gets cold. We all want to protect our little babies from the cold and keep them nice and with their sensitive skin, it is best to seek out hypoallergenic items to protect them even more. One of those items is Dreft, the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby's skin. Keep your baby warm and cozy while protecting their sensitive skin this winter with Dreft products!

Dreft has been a brand that we have used since my first child was born in 2005. It is safe for baby and always gentle for their sensitive skin. My three year old son has eczema and finding detergent and items to clean his clothing with can be tricky at times. Instead of using our regular detergent for him, I wash all of his clothing in Dreft, as well as use the Dreft stain remover. 


We received 2 Dreft Laundry Detergent, Odor Eliminator and Fabric Refresher,  Laundry Stain Remover (large bottle and smaller bottle), All Purpose Wipes, two Little Me Sleepers as well as a $30 gift certificate for Little Me!

Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a babyhood scent beloved by moms and provides little ones fabrics with an amazing clean, yet it remains safe and hypoallergenic for baby.  I love how Dreft has a soothing, powder type scent and it has always been great getting out stains on their clothing. I can tell you from experience, that formula stains are not easy to get out, but I have always had great results with Dreft.
