I was really excited to win this YouReview opportunity since my 7-year-old son actually had this set on his Christmas list. Needless to say, he was very excited to get home from school a couple of weeks ago and see me holding the box in my hand and telling him we were going to put it together and test it out. My 4-year-old helped also, by sorting the different-sized blocks into different piles and handing me the ones I needed. I set my timer, after we were done sorting the pieces, so I could get an idea of how long it took to build.
The Princess Carriage is the unique, 3 dimensional corrugated wearable toy that engages your child to design, color, use her imagination, and even wear it. It is a fun, activity wearable cardboard Princess Carriage which you with your family and kid can decorate, color and assemble. The Carriage is divided into several parts which you need to build after you color them or you can build them first and color later. I recommend to color first and construct after. The best part is after you construct, the child can easily wear it and have her own fantasy carriage. It is a product that stimulates young imaginations on…
Let me start by saying this game is awesome! My kids and I played it for over an hour before taking a break. Very fun and doubles as a workout for the kids since they are chasing the balls everywhere when they bounce off. Lots of laughing and cheering each other on.
My 16 yr old was the tester and she said it was fun because when you lost, it did not bring you to the very start of the game, but to a few steps before you died. It made it more likable for her to continue playing and NOT get discouraged because she did not have to start over. The aiming was easy to do and it both tested her and made it fun for her. The game would definitely be for ages 12 and older.
“I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure,” announces Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) at the start of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The giant wizard looms over Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), whom he’s come to visit in the Shire, while the hobbit, pipe clamped firmly in his teeth, peeps back up at him. Oh no, Bilbo insists, he’s not the right choice for this invitation, because in his eyes, adventures are “nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things. They make you late for dinner.”
My girls give Twister Dance by Hasbro 5 stars in all 3 categories!
As Jack Frost (Chris Pine) tells you at the start of Rise of the Guardians, the first thing he remembers is darkness. Since that moment, he goes on to say, he’s found out a little more about himself, that he can create ice and cold, that he can go barefoot in winter, and that no one else can see or hear him. While it’s fun to slip-slide on ice and deliver snow days to happy school kids, he does wish he might be seen.
I received the Air Hogs 1:24th RC NASCAR – Dale Earnhardt, Jr. vehicle as a prize from TimetoPlayMag.com. When I received it I knew immediately that I would give it to my grandson who is 5 years old. He loves race cars and NASCAR so it was a sure hit for him. Little did I know that Grandpa and his step dad would also enjoy playing with the car! We bought batteries and gave it to Brayden. His eyes lit up and his smile was as big as the room. Imagine how my heart felt to see the little fellow happy. Grandpa put the batteries in and right away we started playing with it – yes, even I played with it as well.
My girls, ages 6 and 4, got the opportunity to review the Fashion Angels Feather Fashion Accessory Kit. It comes with pieces to make feather earrings, a necklace and a hair extension. It includes 24 feathers, a hair extension, 40 beads, three colors of suedette lace, four earring hooks, and instructions. It also comes with a cardboard jewelry stand. Since my girls don’t change their earrings out, we made two necklaces instead of earrings.
The Perplexus Twist is a sphere full of thirty twisty tracks and a ball. The goal is to successfully guide the ball through all the tracks by tilting and twisting the sphere. My 7-year-old daughter was quickly intrigued and determined to get the ball through each track. This is not an easy task since there are plenty of drop offs and bumps that can knock the ball off course.
