One of the Hot it toys this years is the Boxy Girls. Of course my daughter new about this toy way before I did. I am always late to the game and knowing what popular toys are. When my daughter found out that we would be receiving the Boxy Girls Big Box. She started to freak out and started jumping up and down saying YAY.

When it arrived it came in a cute box that looked like shipping box. It was pictured of boxy girls on the front and surprise boxes. She was totally stoked when it arrived in the mail. She was very excited and she was freaking out. The box contains two new exclusive Boxy Girls and you will not know which ones you will get until you open up your package. Which my daughter has a thing for blind bags and not knowing what she will get. I think the suspense always kill hers and brings so much excitement for her. 

She couldn't wait to dump everything from her box onto the floor to see what is inside. There was 28 shipping boxes that include dresses, shoes and accessories for your boxy girl. Which is a lot of fun. I really like that they come in mini shopping boxes it just makes it more real and a lot fun. You will get 28 mystery online shipping boxes that will be filled with 33 fashion surprises. 

Overall this one was of my daughters favorites toys this year. This one made her the most excited and now she wants me to buy her more. The toys were well made and durable. They keep up very well with a lot of play. I would highly recommend this toy for the holiday season. You can find your own Boxy Girl box at the link below.

Wish Me Puppy Holiday Gift Guide

It coming close to holiday season and it is time to think about what you are going to get your kiddos for Christmas. This season it seems like there are many different options that are out there. One toy this year is Wish My Puppy. Wish me Puppy is an interactive toy that your child will adore. 

This Wish Me Puppy comes in 6 different colors for your child to choose from. Also what I found interesting is that they offer unicorns also if your child does not want a puppy. The puppies are interactive also they bark, whimper, giggle, whoopsie and they light up.

When my daughter took it out of the package she feel instantly in love with her Wish Me Puppy. The puppy was very soft and cuddly. I know as a parent I made sure that this puppy that lights up would be safe for her to sleep with at night. This plush is safe to sleep with at night and if it lights up it has a shut off time limit. Which is nice that it has this feature which lets me know that she can sleep with it and it is safe. 

My daughter favorite feature about her puppy is that when she kisses her nose that her nose her bow lights up. My daughter continued to do this step because she thought it was the coolest thing ever. She made a wish than she blew a kiss at the bow and it shut off when she made her wish. This is a fun interactive toy and make a great toy that you can sleep with. 

This would make a great toy for kids that are toddlers and even younger children. This will definitely make my daughters favorite toys for her list this year. You can find your own Wish Me Puppy at the link below.

Canal Toys Holiday Gift Guide Review


My daughter recently has been getting into DIY own kits. Recently she has been obsessed with different kind of slimes and making different kinds of doughs. When I was introduced to a company called Canal Toys I knew that my daughter would fall in love with this company and products that they had to offer. 

My daughter was excited when we received a couple products from Canal toys that she got to play with. The first product that we received for review was their Magic Jar Mini Kits. This is a very unique kit that was a lot of fun. What is great about this kit is that it does not make a huge mess and your child can do this on their own without it being messy. This kit is where you make your own glow light in a jar which is really cool and may daughter had a lot of fun making it. It also gave you a few surprises to go along with it. It also had a character surprise so it adds to the suspense to the kit. Which my daughter had a lot of fun finding out which character she was going to get. These kits are very reasonable price and would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas. You can also find this kit at your local retailer. 

The next product that we received was Power Dough and this one was one of her favorite DIY kits that she received so far. My daughter loves unicorns and when she saw that it was a unicorn on the package she started flipping out. Power Dough is where you bring your dough to live and create animated dough unicorns. When you use the dough it conducts like magic to activate the accessories to move and light up. My daughter thought that was amazing. This kit includes 2 dough pots, 6 interchangeable accessories, 2 power parts with batteries. She had a ball making her own creations and brining them to life.

I will be honest with you that I have never heard of Canal Toys before. Although getting to know this company and products that they offer I am glad that I have found them. They bring a lot of fun DIY kits for your kiddos. I would recommend their DIY kits for your Holiday list this year. You can find these kits at your local Target and Walmart. You can visit their website at the link below.

Brain Blocks Holiday Gift Guide 2018

When my children were younger they used to love playing with blocks. When they started getting older they grew out of their block sets. At times I wished that they had block sets for older kids where they could still build with their imagination. 

That is when I came across the company Brain Bloxs which is the next step up from building blocks. Brain Blocxs comes in different sets for example 100, 200, and 300. We received the 200 set of Brain Bloxs for review. In this set you receive 200 plank like blocks for you to build. What I like about these blocks is that it is educational and help explore math, physics and engineering concepts through hands on building. This is a great STEM toy for children. I know I have mentioned STEM in my previous post but for a quick refresher it stands for science, technology, engineering  and mathematics.

What I think that is unique about this company is that they give children different option of different things that they can build. They also have directions that will help the children build different things. For example the can build trains, chairs, building and robots with these blocks. This toy does take patients from kiddos because you have to put them in the correct spot. 

Overall I would highly recommend Brain Blox for your children and for a holiday gift. The blocks are smooth and 100 percent all natural, precision cut, chemical free and New Zealand pine wood. They are non toxic toys and are safe for kids. They are a lot of fun and will have your kids building for hours. You can find their website and their sets below.

As a parent I like that this kit is perfect for the STEM learning. Which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  In previous review posts you will see me mentioning STEM and this great that toy companies are incorporating this in their products. It helps kids learn while playing and they do not know they are even learning through play. 

Overall my son loved creating all five activities and he had a lot of fun creating them. This was easy for him to do. It was easy for him to set up and make his own creation.

Big Feet Pajamas Holiday Gift Guide Review



Have you thought about getting matching pjs for over the holidays? I have thought about that quite often. Recently I came across a website called Big Feet PJS. They offer a variety of family onesies that you can purchase. They have adults onesies, drop seat pjs, kids, family sets, jumpsuits, footless and dog pjs. 

We were lucky to get a review package from Big Feet. When we opened our review package we received a pair of kids red fleece footed pj and dog hoodie red fleece. 

The one thing that I did not know about Big Feet Pajamas  Onesies are purposely oversized to allow for maximum comfort, flexibility and maneuverability while relaxing. What I like about this company is that they make the pj bigger than the size you ordered so when you wash them and shrink they will be the size you ordered. Which I think that feature is really cool and thoughtful.

When we received the dog flannel it was a little to small for our cockapoos but we tried to put it on penny. Penny didn't mind that we tried to put it on her she seemed to like it. It was a little flannel hoodie. She did not like hoodie part and that is when I took it off her. It was very soft and seemed to be comfortable.  

When my daughter saw the footed hoodie red flannel onesie she made the comment that it looked like baby clothes. Then she took it in her hands and rushed to her room and wanted to put them on right away. When we took them out of the package they looked super comfortable and they were very soft. They fit her just right and the foot were just the right measurements. We were definitely pleased. 

I know it has been a big deal around the holidays that you have matching pjs for Christmas or Christmas cards. I would definitely recommend this company for your family pjs set.  You can find their sets at the link below.

Oliver The Ornament Holiday Gift Guide Review


I always like to find new traditions for the holiday especially with my children. Starting new traditions with my kids are fun and make the years memorable and I hope they will pass these traditions that we make together to their children down the road. 

When I came across Oliver The Ornament I knew that this would make a great new family tradition with my kids. My kids loves books and they books that you can interact or different from regular books. What I mean by that is that this book comes with an ornament. The ornament that comes with this book is Oliver and he is here to tell a story. Which my kids absolutely fell in love with the concept that the ornament is Oliver and the book tells his story. 

This story is about Oliver that is a universally identifiable tale that will appeal to people of all ages. This story is about tradition, love, friendship, forgiveness and joy. It't a story of Christmas. This story is 54 pages long and it a 10x10 hardcover book. What I also like about this story it 1 of 7 book series. Oliver continues with the other books but they will bring in different characters and you will able to collect seven different ornaments. 

What I love about this series it a fun, loving and a great new tradition that you will want to start with your family. My children absolutely loves the ornament and can not wait to collect the others. They absolutely loves the story also and they can not wait to share it with their friends. You can find this story on Amazon.

Pressman Toy Hydro Strike Holiday Gift Guide REview


Hydro Strike is one of my kids favorites games that was sent to us for the holidays. This game I was gladly to let them play by their selves. This game is a lot of fun and it also a lot of fun to watch. The reason why I let them play and not partake in the action is because I did not want to get wet from playing this game. 

When I learned about this game they compared it to pin ball. I would compare it to air hockey but you use the pin ball clickers to shoot the ball. This is a fun simple game for kids to learn. All they have to do is put the ball down and shoot and try to score. Who ever scores the person who lost will get wet. Who ever get wet five times looses and the other person wins. This is just a fun easy game that will bring a lot of competition and laughter along. You can find this game at the website below.

Goliath I Top Holiday Guide Review

I remember as a child when I played with tops as a child. Where I would spend hours spinning them around and just messing around. I never thought that they would be popular again in my kids generation. Although these aren't your old top toys these are the Next Generation Tops which bring a lot more excitement.

Goliath games came out with the Next Gen Tops that you can spin and have a lot of fun with. They have three different colors and they are Mega Gear Blue, Infinite Purple and Vortex red. We received Infinite Purple and Vortex Red. On the package there is a saying spin to win. There is over ten different games on each top. There is a compass mode, cupid, the 99 challenge, pi, top score, lucky charm, jackpot, ufo, airplane, and diamonds. 

Here is a description of the different games that are offered. Compass mode is where you spin the right code to unlock a real compass. Pi is no math involved here spin 314 for pi. UFO is to spin 606 for an animation that is out of this world. Airplane prepare for takeoff, spin 747 for a high flying surprise. Cupid love will have you spinning on 214. The 99 challenge spin to 99 exactly to unlock cool animations. Top score practice your best spins and beat the high score. Jackpot you're a winner if you spin 777. Lucky Charm nothing is luckier than spinning 888. Diamond unlock a precious jewel at 333. 

This top spinner is so much fun. It is easy to play with and also challenging. What I do like about the tops is when you start spinning them they light up while your are spinning them. They do have a screen where you can see how many time it spins. After it is done you spin again you can see previously what you scored and what is the recent score. This game is fun and challenging because there are different scores you need to try and get and it will take a lot of practice you get there.

This is where curiosity will get children and they will spend hours trying to win the different challenges which is not a bad thing. This will brings a lot of fun over the holidays and make a great gift. Make sure you check this game out on the website below.

Hoyle Playing Cards Holiday Gift Guide

The kids are going to have a few breaks from school coming up in the next few weeks and always trying to find them something to do is a tough task for a momma sometimes. The one thing that can keep them occupied is card games. There are many different options with card games we can invite friends over and they can play them or use them as a family night activity.

Recently I was introduced to a company called Hoyle. Hoyle is a brand that was first established by Englishman Edmond Hoyle 1672-1769, Hoyle playing cards have set the standard for quality and trust. Today, Hoyle is dedicated to creating card games that kids and adults love. He also wanted families learning lessons and making memories together.

We received five games for review. My kids were very excited they came in fun card boxes and they where ready to play. 

The first game is one of my favorites it is called Sharks Are Wild. What I also like about this game that it was easy for my daughter to pick up and understand. The goal of this game is to be the first player to collect five gold coins. How to win a gold coin is that you need to create a sequence in your had of five numbered cards. For example 2,3,4,5,6 if you get a shark card that is wild and you can replace one number in your sequence that you need to be able to complete your sequence. I like the simple game but there is a level two that you can learn after you learn level one, to make it a little more of a challenge for you.

The second game that we received was their Piggy Bank. This game I like because it is education and that it will help children with basic math skills. This game helps kids 4-6 learn how to add and subtract by fives and tens. The goal of the game is try to force another player to break the bank by putting too many coins inside the bank. This game is recommend for 2-4 players and each game starts by drawing a piggy bank card that sets the limit of coins the bank will hold for that hand. You will be dealt five cards and you need to try to come with that amount and not break the bank there are some special cards like pig out and oink oink cards. This game is a lot of fun. 

The next game that we played was their Catch N'Fish. This game is recommend for kids ages 4-6 and they get to become stars. This game is recommend for 
2-4 players and it a easy game to play that makes adding and subtracting fun. The dealer passes out seven cards to each player and the game begins when the first player spins the wheel. When the person spins the wheel and it lands on a number if you have those cards in your hand for example you land on a five. You have a 7 and a 2 you have a catch. Or you have 2 and a 3 you have a catch. There are times where you can make several catches in a single spin. The first player to make five catches is the winner. This game is a lot of fun. 

The next game that we received was their Monkey May I. This is a very cute game that reminds me of Simon Says. This game is for 2-4 players and is recommended for kids ages 4-6. This game is easy to set up and play and includes elements of the kid favorite simon says. This game helps reinforce your children's social skills like making good choices, self awareness and self control with entertaining and fast actions game. Monkey May I is a fun game for younger children you will flip over an action card and make good choices and collect Monkey Money. The player with the most Monkey Money at the end of the game is the winner. 

The last game that we received was Super Me. If your child loves super heroes than this game is for them. This game is recommend for ages 4-6 years old and recommend to 2-4 players. This game is based on your child's emotional intelligence and includes element of kid favorites like Memory and Matching! With easy set up and taking turns matching the situation to the emergency, you can reinforce social skills like making good choices, helping other and having empathy. What you do is flip over and emergency card and make a super me. Match a superhero. This game is a lot of fun and your kiddos will love it. 

Overall I would definitely recommend Hoyle Card Game for stocking stuffers this year for your children. Not only that these game are a lot of fun they are also educational. I like how they are fun and your child will not even notice that they are learning in the process of playing the game. They are reasonable priced and would make a great gift for the upcoming holiday. You can find these amazing games at the link below.

Master Pieces Pittsburgh Steelers Puzzle Holiday Gift Guide


It is always tough trying to find my son a gift that he will like around Christmas time. When it comes to my daughter she is simple and like everything. When it comes to my son it take days to figure out what he would like at Christmas. 

Master Pieces offer a variety of crafts, puzzles and even NFL products. When I learned that they offered different NFL games/puzzles I had to look into that. I know my son recently has become obsessed with the Pittsburgh Steelers. I think it had to do with his neighborhood friends family loving the Pittsburgh Steelers. My so has been wanting to start his collection on collecting Pittsburgh Steelers items.

We were lucky that Master Pieces sent us 500 piece Helmet Shaped Puzzle of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This would make an amazing gift for any Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic! In this box for the puzzle features 5 individual sports shaped pieces added to the fun. This puzzle measuring 25''x22".

My son absolutely thought this puzzle was amazing. He thought at first it was an ordinary puzzle but to his surprise it was shape of a helmet. He thought that was the coolest thing imaginable. When he was putting the puzzle together we noticed that it was a little bit of a challenge for him to, but helping him was a lot of fun. The pieces went together great and they did not fall apart which was nice. When we get the puzzle all put together we are going to glue it and put it in my sons room afterwards. You find more puzzles at the link below.

Endless Game Holiday Gift Guide 2018


We were excited that we were able to add a few more games to our family game night collection. Endless Games offers a variety of different games like party games, family games, card games, dice games, and kids games. All games are made in the USA. We were able to receive three games for review and they where Everybody Knows, Floor is Lava and Sleepover Party Game. 

Floor is Lava is a very fun game that I found very creative. I know as a child we played similar games to this one. I remember playing on the playground at elementary school where we could not set off on the wood chips. If you did you were out of the game and you lost. In this game you have to use your imagination and pretend that the floor is lava and you can not set foot on it. The object of the game is the floor is lava and while spinning for their color and jumping along foam game pieces in order to reach to safety. What I also like about this game while play it is incorporating physical activity.  What the game contains is 25 colored foam safety stones, 27 challenge cards,  and 1 game spinner card with arrow and base. This game is recommend for 2-6 players  and recommend for ages for 5 and up. As a mom I like this game for my children it brings laughs, giggles and lots of fun. It creates physical activity and a lot of creativity while playing. This game will bring the family together through play. 

The next game we received for review was Everybody Knows. This is a newer game from Endless game. This one my kids weren't able to play due to them be a little to young for this game. This is a trivia game which would be great for holiday parties. Example of questions that are asked in this game are what is the capital of California?  Who played Forrest Gump? What is 5x 16? This game is about answering questions everybody knowns the answers to. Here is the kicker is that you have to answer these question in 60 seconds or less. Yes the answer seem to be easy, but what happens when you are under pressure and trying to go for 10 for 10 in 60 seconds. What comes in this game is 500 playing cards, 1 sand timer, 1 dry erase maker and 1 scorecard. This game is for 2 or more players and recommended for ages 12 and up. 

The last game that we received in our box was Sleepover Party Game. This is the perfect game if your playing a sleepover party over the holidays. This would be the perfect game to bring out during sleepovers. This game has challenges for you to partake in. There are over 200 challenges that you have to act t, work it or party. All you have to do is spin the spinner and attempt to complete the challenges. This game will have you having fun and being silly. Prepare to laugh, sing and perform. This game will come with 85 act it cards, 75 work it cards and 40 party cards and one spinner. This game is ideal for 3 or more players and ages 8 and up. This game will have your kids having so much fun during their sleep over parties. It is a must have!

Overall these game are so much fun for the family and for party games. I really liked the game where you have to watch out for lava. During holiday parties break out the trivia and have some fun. I would highly recommend these fun games for the holidays. The best part is that Endless Game have many more games that you can play at home. Find these game and other game with the link below.

Kiss Naturals Holiday Gift Guide 2018


Recently my daughter has been really into makeup recently and recently been introduced to bath bombs. She always asking me how to make them and has taken an interest on how they are made. I found a company called Kiss Naturals that offer DIY own kits which would make amazing holiday gifts for this upcoming Christmas. 

They have four kits available on their website. They offer Bath Fizzie, Lip Balm, Glycerin Soap and Lava Lip Balm. What I like about the kits on the box they show you all the materials that you will get in the kit and the box will also list each material that is included. To me that is a plus because my children can see what they are getting and they where also excited to know what they are getting. 

The first kit that they have available is the Bath Fizzie. My daughter was very excited when we took this kit out of the box. This kits ingredients is all natural. My daughter was very excited when she learned that this was a bath bomb kit and she could make her own bath fizzies that she could use herself. What I also like over the holidays is that these kits will teach her a little bit of science. Here is what is included in your Bath Fizzie kit: 1 packet of secret formula powder (pink or aqua), 1 bottle of witch hazel, 1 red silicone mold, tropical sunset natural fragrance, 1 measuring cup, and 1 mini spatula. This kit was easy for my daughter to do and she absolutely loved it. She had fun making her own fizzie bombs and had a lot of fun using them. 

The second kit that we received was their DIY Lip Balm kit. This next one was a lot of fun she loved bring her own lip balm to school and showing her friends and teacher what she made. This kit will teach you how to make your own lip balm from scratch and it fun and easy for your kiddos. The kit provides everything that you will need to make your own lip balm. The kit provides shea butter, beeswax and safflower oil for the lip balm. The fragrances that are included boysenberry and bubblegum. They supplies that they provide are  measuring cup, spatula, 3 empty lip balm tubes, 3 lip balm jars and 6 lips balm labels. This kit was one of her favorites that she was able to make her own lip balm and she uses it a lot. She also shows everyone her lip balms and brags that she made them herself. 

The next kit that we tried was their Glycerin Soap kit. This kit was a lot of fun and we were able to make up to 16 hand soaps for our house. We were able to create vegetable based hand and body soaps for our home. My daughter did have the idea of giving them gifts to family and friends for the holiday season. This kit is very simple all you have to do is melt a square of the clear glycerin soap based in the clear pot included in the kit. Then you add the color and fragrance. Then you pour the mixture in the soap molds and let them cool. Then bam you have your soaps. What is included in this kit are: 2 blocks of glycerin soap base, 2 bottle of scented oils (jasmine and tropical sunset, two colored micas, soap mold, clear mixing/melting pot, stirring spoons, and 1 dropper. This was also a very fun kit to do. 

The last kit that we received was their Lava Lip Gloss craft kits. They compare this kit to lava lamps. If you like lava lamps them you will love this kit. This kit is award winning, groovy 60's inspired lip gloss. The reason why they compare this to lava lips gloss is that you mix together naturals oils, flavors and colors in a tube and you will be mesmerized as the oil mixture and colored glycerin move freely around each other just like a lava lamp. In this kit it includes castor oil, safflower oil, 2 bottle of natural flavors, 3 bottles of natural colors (purple, pink and yellow) 1 measuring cup, 6 empty roll-on lip gloss tubes, and 6 lips gloss labels. This was a fun one to watch and my daughter thought it was pretty cool to was the ingredients turn into lip gloss. 

Overall these kits where very simple to make. The instructions were to the point and easy to follow. The kids had a lot of fun making lip glosses, soaps and fizz bombs. I would highly recommend ordering these kits for you kiddos for Christmas time. They will have a lot of fun making their own soaps and lip balms. You can find their products at the link below.
