Smiley360 Mission: Tom's Of Maine Wicked Cool Toothpaste Review

NEW Wicked Cool!™ fluoride-free toothpaste features a mild mint flavor for kids who have outgrown fruit or bubblegum flavors but don't like the strong mint flavors found in many adult toothpastes. Wicked Cool!™ toothpaste cleans gently and freshens breath. And like all Tom's kids toothpastes, it has no artificial dyes, sweeteners or flavors.  We guarantee your older kids will love it or your money back!

For more information abouTom's of Maine HERE

Like Tom's on Facebook HERE 


My kids loved this toothpaste mainly because of the taste.  They both don't like KIDDIE toothpaste anymore- they call it baby toothpaste- you know that bubblegum taste.  They don't like our toothpaste because it's too minty. Before I got this toothpaste to review I didn't quite know what to get them next because I need them to brush their teeth and they were fighting with me because they didn't like the toothpaste we had.  Then BAM got some Tom's Wicked Cool toothpaste from Smiley360 to try and guess what NO ARGUING now- they love the taste.  Not too minty and not baby toothpaste is what both my kids said.  Also my son said his teeth felt very clean for hours- LOL! 

But what I LOVE is that is it has no artificial dyes, sweeteners or flavors!!!  So that makes 3 Thumbs up! 

Please leave a comment if you think you would try this toothpaste and why :) 

Want to join a FUN Twitter Party: Join us as we chat about teeth brushing for kids and using natural personal care products. With thanks to our party sponsor, Tom's of Maine®, you can win 1 of 4 custom toothpaste and toothbrush gift packages or 1 of 4 Target gift cards!

FREE Photo Book- 100 Pictures from your iPhone- Plus FREE SHIPPING

I take pictures everyday on my iPhone and then do nothing with after I share on Facebook or Instagram.  But now I have something to do with them- get them printed in a cool photobook.  Every month 100 picture photobook for $2.99 NOT BAD AT ALL- that's just paying for shipping by the way.  First thing that came to my head was- cool cheap Christmas gifts.  I know I'm silly but really not joking- what a cool gift idea.  Every month have a different theme.  I know my April book will be about Lil Mama and her Birthday.  My August book will be about the Summer Fun we had.  Every month I have ideas!!  One month I'm going to make a book of all Ron's airbrush pictures.  

The Allen Family gives GROOVEBOOK.COM a big 2 Thumbs Up and we will be continuing each month! 

You get to pick what pictures you upload each month.  I did make a duplicate of a couple pictures but guess what I can tear them out and give them away because all the pictures are printed on glossy photo paper and perforated for easy removal. That means you can share, frame, decorate, scrapbook and more.  How cool is that- very cool in my book! 

Download APP HERE
Enter PINKMAMASGROOVE coupon code to get your FIRST BOOK FREE YES FREE!!!

You will need to enter your credit card because it is a monthly service. However, you are under no obligation to continue past the first album if you don’t want it. For $2.99 a month it's great way to  get pictures developed CHEAP but the QUALITY is not lost. 

Need a little help~ they have a great YouTube video to walk you through the steps

Print a $2 Jamba Juice Coupon

Click on picture and get your $2 coupon!  I know I will be enjoying a Jamba Juice this week! 

WORDS to LIVE by and WHY!

When you THINK positive you surround yourself with good vibes! Also what harm can positivity bring?  I do need to work on this more though- sometimes I let negative thoughts get in my way!

EXERCISE daily- good one!!!  I really need to do this one.  I know I feel great after yoga or a bike ride but it's that push to do it that get's me every time! 

EAT healthy- AMEN!  When I put junk in my body I feel very sluggish and weak but when I fuel up on some fruit and salad man I feel like I can conquer the world.  The older I get the more I need to do this! 

WORK hard- well okay I'm sure that works for some but WORK sounds so official.  I feel great when I get things accomplished or completed so I will agree on that.  

STAY Strong- HECK YEAH!  The older I get the stronger I get that is for sure.  

WORRY less- I really need to work on this.  I can keep myself up at night just thinking about this and that so more sleep worry less! 

DANCE more- right on!  I love to dance and dancing was a big part of my life back in the day but these days not so much- but hey I have kids and Xbox now!

LOVE often- this is what keeps me going everyday!  The love in my house is beautiful. We all say I love you to someone at least 5-10 times a day.  

BE Happy~ Smiling is great medicine.  I'm happy in some aspects of my life and others well let's just say they are works in progress.  I'm happy and that is hard to say sometimes.  

What is one of these WORDS that help you? Leave comment to let me know!

Having a baby changes everything. Suddenly, things that once seemed so simple—taking a trip to the store, enjoying a cup of coffee, sitting down to read a book—aren’t so simple anymore. New mothers have many questions, and they need answers—and also reassurance. “You’re not the only one! No one said this was going to be easy!” Who better to answer these questions, to offer this reassurance, than mothers who have been there, and mothers who are also physicians—the Mommy MD Guides!

The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year is filled with tips and advice from 70 Mommy MD Guides—doctors who are also mothers. They’re experts, squared! Combined, they draw from hundreds of years of experience as physicians, and among them, they have 160 children!

The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year offers tips on both the challenges and the celebrations of a baby’s first year. You’ll discover how Mommy MD Guides made it through challenges such as breastfeeding, getting the baby to sleep, and coping with stress.
