SCATTERGORIES® 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION Holiday Gift Guide 2019



When I went to my Aunts for the holidays and this game was always on the list to play. This game brings back fond memories playing with my aunts and cousins and having a great time. I remember all the jokes and laughter. I always thought I struggled at this game because I was playing with older women who were creative and always seemed to be pros at this game. 

When I saw this game on Winning-Moves I knew that I had to have this game and it to my game collection. This game are for ages 12 and up and for 2-6 players. What comes with this game is 6 folders, 6 answer pads, 18 category cards with 144 different categories, mechanical game timer, multi sides oversized category die, die rolling board and illustrated instructions. 

To me this is an addicting game. I never get enough of playing it. What I also like it never gets old. There are so many different possibilities of game play with this game. It is always fun trying to come up with answers that no one else will come up with. Then when you share them with everyone else you will shake your head and think why didn't I come up with that one. It just a fun overall game that I would highly recommend bringing to your holiday parties this year.

Block ‘N’ Lock® Review Holiday gift guide 2019

In our house we have tons and tons of legos. My kiddos will build sets with them and then take them apart and just want to build anything with them. There is one problem to that though. We do not have enough storage to keep them in. I know as a parent I want a container that will keep them safe so they can play with them in the future. Let me tell you legos are not cheap. 

When I found out about the Block 'N' Lock I knew that I needed one of these for my children. I was lucky that I was sent two of them for review. Each child was able to get one for their legos. What I like about this container that you can design the container to make it your own customized container. I saw you ideas online what people did to their containers. This is a sturdy durable storage unit that you can put your legos in. When you close the container their are four latches on the container that makes it secure. If it tips over you will not have a huge mess. It also has a top where you can build legos on which is awesome. The dimensions are L12.25 x W 12.25 and  9in.

This is definitely a must have for the holiday season. This will go to great use in our homes. I also think that I am going to decorate the sides and make it more special for my kiddos. I even think that I will put their names on one side of it. Great storage idea and I am saved from a lego crisis. You can find this container at their website here.

Block ‘N’ Go® Review Holiday Gift guide

I know each year my children get Lego sets for christmas and they never have enough storage for the pieces. When I ran across Romanoff products they have this amazing product called the Block 'N' Go which is perfect for lego storage. 

When I took my Block 'N' Go containers out of the box I fell in love with the colors. I received a pink, yellow green one and blue, yellow and red on. What I first noticed is that their is a building plate for your child to build creations. I think that is amazing idea where you can bring your container to build and have a place to build it. The case opens and shut easily and you don't have to force it. It offers you to store you blocks inside, you can organize the blocks by color and size, and it offers the building plate. The dimensions of this case or 14x11x2.25 inches. 

This will be a must have for the holiday season. I love practical gifts where you can use them for storage from other gifts you receive. This will be one less stop to the store to find storage for the Legos that they will receive for Christmas you can find their products here.

Black Travel Jewelry Keeper Review

I am a huge fan of Vantel Pearls and I buy a lot of their jewelry. The one problem that I have is after buying the jewelry is that I have no proper place to put it in or have any place to put it in when I travel. Ellis James Designs offers a solution for that. They have an amazing product called Black Travel Jewelry Keeper. This offers the perfect place to put my Vantel Jewelry in.

This black travel jewelry keeper has space for 16 pairs of earrings, 3 zippered pockets, one removable pouch, ring, bracelet and necklace straps. This is a blessing it helps keep my necklaces untangled, earrings displayed nicely and all of my other jewels in their own little compartment. 

I love this black travel jewelry keeper, but I had to look a little further to see if there was any protection. This classic Jewelry Keeper's quilted exterior is water resistant and padded for protection, keeping your jewelry neat and secure. 

I highly recommend this jewelry keeper and I am in the works of purchasing a few more to keep all of my Vantel Jewelry in. I want to keep it protected and safe. If I need to travel I have something that I can pack it in and bring with me. You can this out on their website.

Baby Banana Holiday Gift Guide 2019

Are you looking for something special for babies this holiday season. I know for me it always hard to find something unique to give a baby for christmas. It seems like they really don't need anything. When I came across Baby Banana they changed my mind about baby gifts for christmas. 

They carry a line of baby toothbrushes that range from banana, Jellyfish, Dragon and Unicorn. The price range for 9.95 for each toothbrush. We were lucky and we received two toothbrushes for review. We received their dragon and their unicorn. When I first took them out of the package I though they were adorable. I wished they had them around when my kiddos were that young.

The dragon that we received would be perfect for a little boy. It is green and orange and it is big enough for your youngster to hold. It is made that if your child is teething your child is allowed to chew on the dragon. It also is a easy safe way to teach your youngster how to brush their teeth the safe way. 

The next toothbrush that we received in our package was their unicorn. It mainly white with a little pink to it. My daughter would of loved this if she was younger. She thinks it is pretty cool right now and she is a little to old for this toothbrush. It is a little unicorn with a toothbrush. It easy to use this as a teether/ toothbrush.

What I like about this toothbrush it is easy to teach your youngster how to brush their teeth and they can use it as a teether. Also they are very cute animals and creations for your kiddos to use. I like how they are unique and they are not simple toothbrush. Also they are bigger so your kiddo can hold them their self and start learning. This would make great holiday presents for babies and toddlers this holiday season.

Password Endless Games Holiday Gift Guide 2019

I always enjoy playing new games with the kiddos. I always love having family game night and spending time with my kids. Now that I work in the evening for a few hours I see my kiss less then I normally do. I try to spend more time with them on the weekend and try to have a game or movie night. 

Recently Endless Games sent us the game Password to play with the family. This game is the The Original World Association Game featuring Classic Password Magic Window Revealers! This game has been around for more than 50 years. I personally have never played password before but it was a new adventure that I could share with my two kiddos. 

The content of the game is 150 passwords word cards, scoring indicator dial, score pad, 2 magic window revealers and instructions. What I also like that this website offers that you can download the instructions if you need it. This game is recommend for ages 10 and up and for 3 and more players will be needed. 

When you play this game you will need teams of two and square off to see who can the secret PASSWORD first. When you are in your teams you will have to be creative when you play and have great communication skills. When you communicate with your partner you will only be allowed to give one word clues  and the fewer clues given the higher the score with you will earn. 

It is always fun to see the kids try to come up with clues. When we play it always fun to watch them and I always bust out laughing on their clues. When playing with adults it is easier to figure out than playing with my kiddos because you have to try harder to figure it out. I would highly recommend this game for your holiday parties this season. Check them out at their website Endless Games.

Mindware Stone Cupcake Holiday Gift Guide 2019

I always love checking out products at Mindware. They alway have creative gift ideas when it comes to the kiddos. When I came across this fun activity I knew it would make a great gift idea for my daughter for the holidays. This is a painting your own stepping stone cupcake which seemed super cool. 

What comes in the box is 8- 1/4" x 9-1/4" stepping stone. Which is nice where I know kits that you have to mix the stone it self and let it sit. This come with it pre-made where you do not have to worry if it will turn out or not. My luck if I had to make the cupcake stone it would not turn out and I would have a disappointed daughter. 

What comes in the kit is that there is a dozen pretty paint colors. The colors are very vibrant ant it shows up great on the cupcake. It comes out with one cupcake that you can paint. It also comes with a paint brush of course or it would be hard to paint.

My daughter had a fun painting this cupcake. It was easy to set up for her and she knew what to do. Then she had a fun time putting all the different colors on the cupcake. It only took one coat on the different parts so she didn't have to keep redoing the areas. Then when she was done I ended up her finishing the rest of the steps. I had to put it in the oven to bake. After doing this it makes it weather resistant so you can put it outside. This is a great step because you can show it off outside 

This is a great gift idea for younger kids and even older kids. If you like arts and crafts than this will be fun for you. I know that I would even enjoy this myself. You can check this product out and other amazing products at Mindware website.

Doodlematic Holiday Gift Guide 2019

 I am always on the lookout for great gift ideas for my children. It always hard to find unique gift items for my children. My son has a creative mind and sometimes it is hard to find something that he would enjoy. Recently I found a creative product called Doodlematic. What is that you say? Well it a fun concept that you can doodle and make creation and make it into your own video game. How cool is that? I know that my son is into mechanics and he is really into video games and how they work. When I hear about Doodlematic I knew that this was the first step for my son to take. I knew he would absolutely love this. 
This requires an Android device or iOS, download the Doodlematic app from the apap store. For iOS devices recommended iPhone 5+ or iPad 3+. When checking the app store it has a rating 4.6 out of 5 star rating which is pretty impressive. After downloading this app helps your turn your child's hand drawings into the interactive video games you can actually play on your iPhone or your iPad. What impressed me that this included a unique code that removes all annoying ads from the app and fully unlocks premium features, a bonus $10 value. How cool is that. I know personally when I am playing game or checking things out on my iPad I hate ads popping up when I am playing or reading. 
One concern I had about this product is how difficult would this product be. To my surprise it well set up and very easy to figure out how to do this. Children can easily create their own video games by following the fun "introduction to game design" guide book. Which I like how they include the guide book to help children. This kit has everything you need to create your game. Which I also think is amazing. That there is no hidden extra costs to this kit. This kit contains 5 washable markers, instructions, reference guides and a game sketch book. How awesome is that. 
This would make a great gift for children that are around the ages of 5-12. I really love the concept on how this kit helps you with your creativity and that it turns into a game. How cool is that. It gives a insight on how you can make a game and bring it to life. I would highly recommend checking Doodlematic out and putting it on your list for the holiday season.

AXE ICE CHILLIN Holiday Gift Guide Review 2019


Are you looking for a gift for a teenager and not sure what to get them. Well AXE has their gift sets coming out for the holidays and they would make fantastic gifts. I know that my son received on last year and he has been using AXE ever since. He is a huge fan and this year he asked for their new gift set for Christmas. This year I was excited that I was sent their new AXE ICE CHILL collection. 

In this collection the first product is their AXE ICE CHILL Body Spray and Antiperspirant Stick. This helps guys stay chill with a cool fragrance blend of frozen lemon and eucalyptus. The body spray comes in handy because we put this in my son backpack so he has this incase he needs it at school. It is small and handy and does not take up to much room. He really liked the scent to the spray. 

The next product ACE ICE CHILL 2-1 shampoo and conditioner. I like having the 2 in 1 because my so would always shampoo his hair and not use conditioner. That is why I like how they offer this 2-1 shampoo and conditioner. I don't have to fight with a pre-teen to use both. This shampoo conditioner is infused with the cool fragrance of spearmint to provide extreme cooling to help guys stay chill. 

The next product is AXE ICE CHILL body wash. My son loves AXE body wash. I think it is because he does not have to use a bar of soap. That he can just squirt a little bit out of the bottle. AXE Body Wash instantly cools the body with its iced mint and lemon fragrance, keeping guys chill and fresh for up to 8 hours. I was impressed that it would last up to 8 hours.

The last product in the AXE ICE CHILL Pocket Spray helps guys get instant fresh while on the go. Making sure they are ready to take on the day no matter where and when. I love how you can put this spray in your pocket and it super small and easy to take with you. 

Overall my son was very excited to try this new line of products out. This is so far his favorite scent out of the ones that he has tried in the past. They definitely came out with a great new line. I would recommend that you check their new line at your local retailer.

Magnetic Theatre Geomag Review Holiday Gift Guide 2019


The last toy that we received was their Magnetic Theatre. This is a new toy to their company and we were excited that we received this for our Holiday Collection. When we took this product out of the box it came in a decent size tin which I thought was a great idea. When it come to magnetic or even a story telling type of toy. As a parent I want something sturdy to protect this type of toy getting destroyed or ruined. 

This toy reminds me of the bad wolf. It come with many different magnetic pieces that will allow your child to tell their story in their own creative way. This toy is a little to young for my children, but would make a great gift for my nephew. What I like about this toy is that they can tell this story they way they want it came be true to the story or it can be and story they would like it to be. There is no wrong way to tell the story.

These magnetic pieces are sturdy and they stick pretty well and do not just fall off if you bump it. Which is amazing. I would highly recommend this product for the youngsters and would make a great gift. You can find this product at their website Geomag.

Geomag Gravity Challenge Review Holiday Gift Guide 2019

I have a 11 year old boy who is starting to like the idea of mechanics and how mechanics work. So for this holiday season Geomag Mechanics Gravity Magnetic is a great gift idea for for my son. This toy is based on experience that is based on these fundamental principles of physics. This set is recommended for ages 7 and up. Mechanics Gravity is a set that is considered a STEM product which means that it educational. I know as a parent that I love a toy that my child can play with that they can learn. This toy helps to promote learning through play, promotes creative and imaginative play, develops fine motor skills, engages children to think about and work with invisible forces, a STEM product that can stimulate scientific learning. 

In this set this comes with 1 magnetic canon, 15 non magnetic steel spheres, 79 plastic mechanical elements, and magnetic construction system. My son was really into this set as for me it confused me. Science and this kind of stuff it not my speciality. Although my son thrives in this kind of stuff and understand its better than I do. I get a kick out of it when he tries to explain it to me and I just nod my head and act like I know what he is talking about. 

Mechanics Gravity Magnetic Challenge harnesses the invisible forces of magnetism and gravity through original and surprising means. The spheres inside the circuit are set in motion by an innovative magnetic cannon that use the force of attraction of accelerating magnet. this set contains magnetic rods, spheres and many plastic elements- all the essentials needed to build freely and create chain reactions. Developed with the expert players in mind, this new construction system is based on an innovative "gravity motor" that uses the weight of the Geomag spheres to kickstart the mechanisms and movements of the Geomag mechanics structure.  The motions is provided by the invisible forces of gravity and magnetism, without using electricity or batteries. 

This was easy for my son to put together and use. He enjoyed it and brought hours of fun. This toy was right up his alley and he would love to do more kits that are like this. I would highly recommend this as one of your next holiday toy picks.  You find this toy at Geomag!!
