Holiday Gift Guide: Skylanders Starter Pack

December 21, 2015 By · No Comments

Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack and Little A says, “In Skylanders Superchargers starters Pack you are trying to defeat Kaos. The first chapter you meet your characters as you are leaving your home town because it was destroyed. You save three people and go to their academy to learn stuff and earn money. The little pieces are awesome. You can change out your characters/vehicles too which I hear you couldn’t always do. This is definitely on many kids’ Christmas lists this holiday season and not just kids but adults too and I can see why.

BalletGirl age 12, “The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack  gives you this rush because you have to race on the 14th chapter you go up against this cloud guy that refuses to give you something you need so you have to fight him. You can easily change your characters when you want to do it. You can train your characters at the academy. There are three vehicles, land, sky and water. It’s awesome.” By the way this is a single player game unless you hook it up online.

The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack, now available for consoles and compatible iOS devices (Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and iPod), is the perfect gift for the whole family! Everyone can get involved in head-to-head racing competitions – even far-away family members as the game can be played online for the first time ever!

Holiday Gift Guide: Tumble Trax

December 9, 2015 By · No Comments

Disclosure: I received a sample of the product for review purposes to include in my Holiday Gift Guide.

I love educational products for my kids, always have and always will. There is something about watching their minds work as they play with a toy and get more than just the original idea out of it. Recently Babygirl (age 12) attended a Stem camp during her Fall Break and loved it so much I wanted to find STEM products and did. So for all of you out there that are looking I must say this is definitely something for everyone, it isn’t just a small age group.  It’s Learning Resources Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run.

Over the past few months I know many heard about the Children’s Book Challenge, well for my group of friends and me it worked. I loved watching the excitement in my kids’ eyes as a new book they either had no clue about or I hadn’t purchased for them arrived. They would quickly open their package and sit right down and read it. I, as a reader, loved seeing this and also as a parent. I know the excitement of getting a book it the mail but I thought it might just be an adult thing because it is the little things that get us excited. Not true. I quickly went online to look and see if they had anything like this. Of course they do. Bookroo!

What is Bookroo? Simple this is an adorable little package that comes in the mail once a month and treats your little one to either 3 board books or 2 picture books depending on your age group. I couldn’t help but get excited just about reading what happens. See they don’t just send a box like amazon does and you open it up to the book. No! There is a bigger surprise. Inside this regular packaged box is gift-wrapped surprise books for your child. Yes, they get to open a gift. You can also choose to subscribe for 1 ($19.99), 3 ($55.99), or 6 ($104.99) months at a time.

Gifts for the Man in Your Life: Jord Watches

June 17, 2015 By · 4 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent a Jord Watch for review purposes. All pictures and opinions are our own.

jordwatchAntonio, aka SoccerBoy recently graduated from High School and I was so happy to be able to give him a Jord Watch as a graduation gift (one reason I had to wait to do this post). While most of your teens are all about their phones and not caring about having the time on their wrist that is not him. He constantly looks at his wrist when someone asks about the time and immediately pulls out his phone. He had brought up a few months ago how much better it would be if he could have a watch for when he goes to college/work after he graduated high school so I was already hoping to find him one. Jord Watch wrote and asked if I’d like a chance at reviewing their lovely watches, at first I wasn’t too sure but since I knew SoccerBoy had mentioned wanting one I wondered if they had one in his size. They absolutely did and they had quite the selection once I found his wrist size.

In the photos above you can see the watch arrived in a very protected box, I call it a pandoras box because I couldn’t immediately open it. Not to worry it isn’t that hard I just thought you lifted it up. haha. Inside it is protected by the lovely (tiny) pillow to secure it and it also has a layer of bubble wrap around it so it won’t scratch or bump during its trip to you. Every night he takes his watch off and places it back in the box. We got the Fieldcrest Natural Green Jord Watch to review.

Watch Details:

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
  • Case Width: 39mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 49mm
  • Band Length: 205mm
  • Band Thickness: 20mm

Build-a-Bear Workshop Starts School with a Big Splash!

September 29, 2014 By · 57 Comments

Disclosure: This is a review, the product mentioned was sent to us to review. But I loved it and thought you and/or your children would too.

Just at the beginning of the school year my kids got a surprise at the front door. Build-a-Bear Workshop wanted to start their education off with a great big splash and had sent us some of their new Summer pals. The kids were definitely excited with their new-found-friends especially Mr.Nicoli once his siblings were at school he decided to help himself to see what was inside this “special package” we’d got that his siblings wanted to open so badly, but since he’d been in tears at the beginning of them going back to school I had told them that he would get the honors of opening it the following day so when they went off to school he’d have something fun to do. Boy did he too. By the way, Build-a-Bear Workshop now has puppets. I’m not sure if they always have or if this was something new but to me it was definitely new and I love it. With a toddler puppets can definitely come in handy as you can instruct them to chat with the little ones and they always talk back to the puppets even if it is toddler talk.
