  • Rock Your Holiday with Rayovac, Paper Jamz, and TravelingMamas

    Have you heard about the fun and lightweight toy for all ages? Paper Jamz is an affordable and entertaining holiday gift that everyone will love. I first saw these in Walmart when grocery shopping and my daughter talked me into buying one. It was less than $20 and extremely light. We also bought a pack of Rayovac batteries, which is the official battery of Paper Jamz (and I put a few extra packs in the buggy to get ready for all the holiday toys that need to be powered.)

    Paper Jamz makes a great gift or toy for travel (once you get to your destination) because it is lightweight and can be placed on top of your luggage in the trunk. It isn’t small, so I don’t recommend it for air travel, but man is it a fun gadget. Each Paper Jamz comes with three pre-recorded songs and you can even freestyle. I was rocking out the other night singing about decorating the house and how I was thankful to be one of Rayovac’s Power Bloggers. It’s fun to work with them and pretend like I’m a rock star with my Rayovac powered Paper Jamz guitar. The poor dog was looking at me sideways before he started howling.

    I’d love to help a few of you get some of these popular holiday gifts to put under your own tree, or just rock out on Christmas Eve with the family. Rayovac and Paper Jamz want YOU to have as much fun as I’ve been having and would like to give one of you a $250 Visa Gift Card and five (5) of you Rayovac Jams Packs (A Paper Jamz Guitar and one pack of Rayovac Alkaline AAA 24 pack batteries).

  24. My dad won’t be joining us this year, so my sister and I are being a bit low-key this Christmas. On Christmas Eve, we’ll go over to the paternal fam’s annual get together and eat and hang out. On Christmas day, I’ll get up early to start cooking before going off with my friends for our traditional Christmas Coffee at Starbucks. I’ll come home to finish cooking, then eat dinner and open gifts with my sis and possibly my friend and God-kids.
