megabloks-build-n-play-fab-mansionMy Take on the Product

My girls love Barbie! They love creating worlds that are unlike their own and allowing themselves to let go and just have fun. This new set from Mega Bloks allows kids to do just this and it allows them to have even more fun with an actual play set instead of just dolls themselves. My daughters thought that this was such fun. They loved being able to move things around and re-create the rooms and environment. This was especially true with my youngest daughter who loves things like doll houses and play sets. I found that she would take this and play with it for hours on end. This type of creative play is something that I love seeing as a parent. I am always looking for toys that allow for this, and Mega Bloks continues to deliver. I highly recommend this set for one and all, you will not only see how well it is built, but also how much it encourages your own kids to let loose and just have fun!

The Ozobot ( @OZOBOT ) Teaches So Much To Young & Old! #giveaway #dadchat

Ozobot
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

About the Ozobot

Observe a kid afterschool and he’ll probably be “playing” with an assortment of digital devices from tablets and smart phones to wireless controllers and Apps. Technology is their normal and augments everything they do from homework to family game night. What’s next? A board game where the pieces move themselves a la The Jetsons? Actually, yes! Introducing Ozobot, the one-inch robot that moves kids from augmented reality back to physical play.

Ozobot

Like Dorothy following the yellow brick road to Oz, kids 13 and up use color — black, red, green and blue – as the building blocks in their learning of a very basic coding language to program Ozobot to follow a path forward, backwards, fast, slow, right, left and more. So clever is the technology that the bot can move on physical surfaces like paper and digital planes like an iPhone or iPad. Its ability to “see” colored lines and know the difference between them is the basis for all the activities and games you can play with Ozobot – like Ozoluck, OzoPath and OzoDraw (all free on the Apple and Google Play app stores.)  With more free apps coming down the road and the Christmas shopping season ramping up, Ozobot is sure to be on everyone’s list this year.  If you’re not convinced, just check out this video to see Ozobot in action.

Ozobot

Ozobot has charmed geeks and toy masters at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the American International Toy Fair, with USA Today and Popular Science giving Ozobottheir Best Tech Toys of Toy Fair distinction. Dr. Toy has placed Ozobot on her 10 Best Technology list for 2014. The Ozobot is now available for $49.99 for a single pack and $99.99 for the dual pack at places like brookstone.com, momastore.org and Amazon.com and The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Design Store. Speaking of MOMA, if you live by one of these stores you can see the Ozobot in action on the following dates at some in-store events:

From 1pm to 6pm:
Monday 12/1
MoMA Design Store, 44 West 53 Street
Tuesday 12/2
MoMA Design and Book Store, 11 West 53 Street
Wednesday 12/3
MoMA Design Store, Soho, 81 Spring Street
Thursday 12/4
MoMA Design and Book Store, 11 West 53 Street
Friday 12/5
MoMA Design Store, Soho, 81 Spring Street

 

My Take on the Ozobot

Below you can watch my video explaining my thoughts on the Ozobot. This was a great little Robot that truly does teach some basic tenets to programming language. I loved working with my eldest daughter with this and she seemed to completely “get” the principles right away. After doing the below video we ventured off and started teaching our Ozobots more and played with different patters and got them doing some very fun things. That is the best part of these Ozobots, there really is no limit to what you may have them do, only the limits of your own creativity. This is the perfect gift that will challenge, teach and entertain. I highly recommend this to one and all!

My Take on These Games

Both of these games were ones that really promote learning through fun and innovative ways. My youngest daughter has been using an innotab for some time and we are always looking for fun games that educate and challenge and both of these do that.

In the Cody and Cora Game my daughter was able to truly take her time to practice her writing. While she can easily recognize her letters, her writing is still lagging a bit behind. While she is 6, this game is one that I honestly would have loved to have had a few years ago as I can already see the difference in her writing ability. A few years ago I know that this would have made a big difference prior to her Kindergarten year to help her even more and make her an even stronger reader at an earlier age. Even though my daughter was a bit older, she loved the story itself and she wanted to continue playing just to see where the story was going!

In Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town again you get to practice letters and numbers. What was nice was that there were a number of games held within the game itself. While my daughter is a bit older than most that would play, she said that it was fun and she liked that it could engage the camera in fun ways.  This game would have been great a few years back and I think that a 2-3 year old could really take this game and grow with it. I wish my daughter had found this at an earlier age as the learning outcomes that it provides were amazing and would have really helped her in her own educational journey.

Sprukits ( @SpruKits ) Are Fun To Make & Realistic #giveaway

Sprukits photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

What is a Sprukit?

SpruKits lets you build your favorite hero from the spru up.  Build a highly detailed figure with true to life action hero movement & articulation without paint, glue or cutting. Experience the joy of building as you snap together & assemble the pieces to build your hero & have the pride that comes with being able to say “I built.”

Sprukits

What is a Spru?

The Spru is where the magic begins. Meticulously crafted so each piece easily pops off and individually numbered to be easily found in the instructions. The Spru organizes all the pieces so you can focus on creating your hero.  What makes a hero?  You DO!

Sprukits3

My Take on Sprukits

These kits were a ton of fun to put together. You have to make sure that you have some time to work on the different parts of the Sprukit. At first I only had small amounts of time and it took me a while longer than it probably should have taken to get this completed. The second one went faster than the first. Both of these sets were well made with intricate details which make the heroes come alive. Once complete the model has great articulating action and  even different types of hands that can be used depending on what you want to have them do or pose as. What is great though is that you don’t have to worry about glue or paint, you get everything given to you and in the end you have a great model to boot!

Big Hero 6 Toys Are Fun For All Ages #BigHero6 #giveaway

Deluxe-Flying-Baymax
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

About the Products

Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” premieres November 7.  The action-packed comedy-adventure is about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred.

Deluxe Flying Baymax

Large and in-charge, this massive Baymax is ready to fly into battle using all his great weapons and features. Towering at 11” inches with a soaring 18-inch wingspan, the Deluxe Flying Baymax features 20 points of articulation, multiple lights, sounds and other fun features such as a launching rocket fist. Baymax comes with a 4.5” Hiro Hamada figure, which when attached to Baymax’s back unlocks additional flying sounds that vary depending on whether Baymax is flying up, or down. Price: $39.99

Deluxe-Flying-Baymax

 

Baymax-Rocket-Fist

Baymax Rocket Fist

Put the power of Baymax in your hands with the Baymax Rocket Fist.   Easy reloading and fun launching up to 10 feet in distance – and soft material on the fist makes it safe, and fun to play! Price: $19.99

 

My Take on These Toys!

Deluxe Flying Baymax

 

Baymax Rocket Fist

As you can tell in the above pictures, my daughter had a ton of fun with this. She loved getting into the character of Baymax and shooting off her rocket fist. The fist itself is foam, so shooting it at things should not break anything or cause too much damage. I will however say that we have made it very clear that she was not to shoot the fist at anyone or our cats! The mask fit well and could easily be worn wherever she was going. The product was well constructed and really allowed the movie to come alive for my daughter in general.

About the Book

Is technology bringing your family closer together or driving you farther apart?

Children today are no longer playing hide-and-seek outside or curling up with a good book—instead they’ve been introduced to a world of constant digital entertainment through television, video games, and mobile devices. And while technology has the potential to add value to our lives and families, it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child’s emotional and social development.

In Growing Up Social, Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane will empower you with the necessary tools to make positive changes…starting today. Through stories, wit, and wisdom, you’ll discover how to take back your home from an over dependence on screens. Plus, you’ll learn to teach the five A+ skills that every healthy child needs to master: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention.

  • Equip your child to be relationally rich in a digital world
  • Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time
  • Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
  • Discover what’s working for families that have become screen savvy
  • Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done

My Take on the Book

So many of our kids today are definitely connected to their technology. As a parent I always have to find time to help them with their balance their tech use with everything else in their lives, including time to just be with us. This book is great and offers amazing resources for any parent that are practical and easy to understand. After reading through this I found that I could put together a step-by-step plan that would allow me to help my kids but also myself in setting up new ways to help me raise my kids so that they will respect technology as well as well as time with family. There were small changes that could be made within my own home that have already started to make a difference and this is SO important. While the ideas in the book are geared toward technology and kids, it also helps you as a parent to re-evaluate how you use and look at technology too. As the way you look at technology also shows your kids what you value too.

My Take on the Candles

Old Factory Candles, while small, smell great, burn clean and really provide a lot of aroma from the small candle that it is. I ordered this through Amazon and there were a ton of scents to choose. I chose a more holiday themed item. For me this was great and the scents were exactly what I had expected and wanted. I found that the candles to burn well and last a long time. I have not burned them long enough yet to see how many hours they actually last, but it looks like they will last a long time. The candles arrived in a nice box and well gift wrapped directly from Amazon itself. I could easily see myself giving this as a gift to a number of people as the scents were varied and it was SO easy to send and order. One of he other things that I loved about these candles was that they were made in America! All-in-all I was very impressed with these Old Factory Candles and I believe that you will be too!

Come Experience HalloWeekends @CedarPoint #Giveaway #BloggingatCP #dadchat

halloweekends
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

“Double, double, toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble.” If the thought of a group of wicked witches working on a mystical brew sends shivers down your spine, you may want to stop reading now. However, those with no fear of flying broomsticks will delight in the announcement that Cedar Point’s annual festival of fright,HalloWeekends still has a few weeks left! This year’s event is bigger and better than ever, with even more family friendly fun during the day and frightfully haunting experiences after the sun goes down.

HalloWeekends

Highlighting the lineup of scares this year will be Hexed, Cedar Point’s new witch-themed haunted house. Decrepit witches and their gaggle of small minions roam around this sinister new attraction working on spells and potions that have gone horribly wrong. Hexed will be located next to the exit of the GateKeeper roller coaster and will be Cedar Point’s fifth haunted house, joining Zombie High School, G. A. Boeckling’s Eerie Estate, Eternity Infirmary and Eden Musee.

HalloWeekends

Cedar Point’s Frontiertown will transform into a ghost town after dark with the addition of the new Tombstone TERROR-tory. This terrifying new fright zone will leave those brave enough to travel through it with a new fear of ghosts. Tombstone Terror-tory will be the sixth outdoor fright zone, joining other haunted attractions such as Maniacal Mechanical ScreamWorks, CornStalkers, Cut Throat Cove, CarnEvil and Blood on the Bayou.

halloweekends

Spooktacular live (or dead) entertainment also abounds during HalloWeekends. This year’s star attraction will be Midnight Syndicate LIVE! A Legacy of Shadows.” This musical group from Ohio is known for creating haunting melodies and “soundtracks to imaginary movies” by combining instrumental music and movie-quality sound effects on their albums. Performing live for the first time ever, this performance will blend music, theatre and film into a spellbinding concert that will wow and amaze. But beware; this show may be too intense for younger viewers and those afraid of the dark!

There is plenty of fun for your little ghosts and goblins too. From shows and performances to special areas and attractions just for them, kids will find both tricks and treats during HalloWeekends. New this year will be an expanded Howl-O-Palooza kids’ area, now located along the Wicked Twister Midway and in the Planet Spooky and Kiddy Kingdom children’s areas. Howl-O-Palooza will feature cornstalk and hay bale mazes, pedal tractors, trick-or-treat stations and much more! Kids will also delight in special live entertainment that is suitable for the entire family, including the always-popular “Monster Midway Invasion Celebration” parade, the hit “Skeleton Crew” show in Celebration Plaza, “The Monsters’ Trick-or-Treat” and “Peanuts’ Halloween Show & Kids’ Costume Contest” on the Howl-O-Palooza stage, “The Pumpkin Patch Party with the Peanuts” in the Camp Spooky Theatre and “Snoopy’s Halloween Hijinks” in the Planet Snoopy Gazebo.
