December 21, 2015 By · No Comments

Disclosure: We were went one for review, but all opinions are our own. You may find affiliate links so that you can check out the Skylanders Starter Pack for yourself. 

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!

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.

Holiday Gift Guide: Bookroo

December 1, 2015 By · 5 Comments

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.

Batman Unlimited/DC Super Friends

October 27, 2015 By · No Comments

Disclosure:This is a sponsored post, that I thought some of you would love a chance at winning some money for the upcoming holidays.

Did you ever dream of being a super hero? Which one? If your kids are looking for as much superhero action as possible in one place, DC Kids is their answer. Oh and for fun, try thinking of some Halloween costumes they can make for this year. I recently was inside a store when I saw a cape and just couldn’t resist. There were two actually, one was black and the other blue with red trim. I’ll let you guess which ones those are and they are definitely making Nicoli feel like he is a super hero as he zooms around the room. Thank goodness he isn’t like his slightly older brother who use to think he was Spiderman and climb up my mantle and jump off. Not to worry he’s too little to read my blog so I’m safe for now. I love super powers and all the heroes that go with them and I’m definitely making sure he will too.

DC Kids latest animated series features all of your favorite DC characters from Batman to Wonder Woman and even Aquaman joining forces against the bad guys. Here’a little secret, I use to pretend to be Wonder Woman and fly around with my little cape. Hey, not just boys wear capes ya know. hehe But that ins’t part of the post, I want you to see the new Batman Unlimited.

Jurassic World arrives on HD Oct 1

October 1, 2015 By · 54 Comments

Disclosure:  I will be receiving a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own. Samples/prizes courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Hasbro.


How many of you remember Jurassic Park? Did any of you see Jurassic World when it came out in theaters earlier this year? Ya’ll already know that I could not wait for this movie to come out. I ended up taking my kids the same way I saw the very first.  Shattering records globally, Jurassic World crushed the opening-weekend box-office, scoring the highest domestic, international and worldwide openings of all time.

The film has taken in more than $1.6 billion globally to become the third-highest grossing film in history.  Now fans can experience the thrill and awe when Jurassic World arrives on Digital HD on October 1, 2015 and on 3-D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on October 20, 2015. Available on Digital HD today. 

The Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs, but something ferocious lurks behind the park’s attractions – a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities.  When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island.  Now it’s up to Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) to save the park’s tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault. Will they be able to protect everyone? Who will die? Who will live?
