I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I am never knowing what to get my seven year old boy for Christmas. I feel like I struggle with Christmas ideas with him more than I do with my daughter. When I came across ZING Dino Hunterz Crossbow I knew this would be perfect for him. 

He has recently became interested in crossbow type of items and this would be safe and fun for him. Zing Brand Toys offer this item and great quality and durable toy. Your child can play with this item indoors or outdoors. Personally I would consider it an outdoor toy because I can see something getting broken in my house. I am not saying my son would necessary would do it. Our family tends to have to much fun with this type of toy and it gets us in trouble.

Here is a little about this product:

The dinosaurs rise again! Join the Dino Hunterz and send these prehistoric creatures back to the Jurassic with Sing's Dino Hunterz Crossbow. Place the arrow hooks through the Crossbow. Place the arrow hooks through the crossbow loops and latch onto the pin. Release the safety, pull the trigger and watch the Dino Dartz Fly. With Arrows shooting over 45 feet and a special Dino-scope for supreme accuracy, T-rex  doesn't stand a chance! Each Dino Hunterz Crossbow comes with the three Dino Dartz suction cup arrows and one Dino Hunterz Crossbow.

This cross bow is so much fun. I almost want to keep it and not share with anyone. It can be addicting to play with. It is easy for a child to get the hang of it. It would also make a great Christmas present!! It will bring hours and hours of fun. I know that this will be a toy where my son and I can play with and spend some quality time playing together.

You can find this toy at your local target. You can also visit www.zingtoys.com. The srp is 19.99 and recommend for ages 8 and up.

My Friend Cayla (holiday gift guide 2015)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I am excited to share with you a new doll that recently came out call My Friend Cayla. Cayla isn't just any ordinary doll she also is an interactive talking doll. Which I find very interesting. My daughter who is five years old has recently became interested in playing with dolls. This holiday season dolls make it at the top of her list. 

I have been on the look out for a durable and great quality doll for my daughter for Christmas and not go over budget for one item. This doll is under 60 dollars and it an interactive. The doll is decent size. 

In the package you will received on doll. There are different dolls to choose from. I believe that their are 4-5 different ones to choose from. The doll also comes with a brush and mirror.

Cayla is interactive and powered by bluetooth technology which is really neat. This is what makes her stand out from all the other dolls that are out there to be honest. What she is able to do is answer questions, understand what people are saying, tell stories and play games. How neat is that? I know when I heard about that feature this is what sold me on this doll. 

Getting started and how to make your Cayla doll work. It simple you need three AA batteries. Which you need to make sure that you have on hand when you buy this doll. At first I thought this doll would be complicated and hard to set up. Well the proved me wrong. All I needed to do is put the batteries in and download the free app. Then you simply turn on the doll and connect the bluetooth. You do have to make sure that the device is near. You won't be able to do anything else with your smart device when this is connected. 

The game that they offer right now is tic tac toe and that is one of my favorite game my daughter loves to play. Although my daughter wishes that she would be able to win more than Cayla but hey my daughter is only five and still learning. 

Overall I would say this doll is perfect for young girls. I like that it is interactive. I do think that there are a few things they can make better but my daughter loves Cayla and that what matters. I would highly recommend this doll for Christmas. Cayla is durable and great quality and will last a long time. You can find Cayla at your local Target stores.

Rainbow Rocks
Canterlot High is hosting a musical showcase and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. A new girl group, The Dazzlings, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands.Tensions mount and a reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that the Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to return to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.

Canterlot High meets its rival school, Crystal Prep Academy, in a competition that’s a long-standing tradition — the Friendship Games.

Cinderella (holiday gift guide 2015)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

Are you looking for a good movie for stocking stuffers this year for Christmas. I have a great new movie that just recently came out that would make a great stocking stuffer and that is Cinderella. Cinderella recently came out on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere in September. This Blu-Ray include bonus feature that is over 12 minutes of additional scenes, the Frozen Fever theatrical short and more!!

SYNOPSIS:                Celebrate Disney’s “Cinderella,” a modern classic that shines with beauty, imagination…and magic! Despite being mistreated by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, a spirited Ella (Lily James) resolves to take charge of her fate. Add a royal ball, a Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham-Carter) and a glass slipper, and suddenly – magic becomes reality!
When I first heard about this movie coming out. I was not sure how I felt about it. The reason why is because I love Cinderella it was one of the classics and one of my favorites. I have seen many new version of this classic tale and they never get it right. I heard so many good things about this movie and decided to keep and open mind and watch it.
When I turned the movie on I was memorized with the creativity, costumes and how they retold the classic tale. They kept it to the tale but made it their own if that make sense. I love how I could let my children watch this with me and everyone in the family enjoyed it. I thought it was the best remake of the classic tale. I know in my household this movie will be watched many times. 

I would recommend picking this blu-ray up for the holidays for that special gift. It would also make a fantastic stocking stuffer. You can find this DVD at your local retailer or amazon.com
