  • My Birthday Party Baby Ariel

    My Birthday Party Baby Ariel

    In our house, princesses rule. We love anything Disney Princess. This includes the Baby Ariel doll. My 4 year old protects this doll and will not share with anyone else. Her favorite part is the removable tiara. I like that Ariel is dressed for the party, and you can’t remove the dress. I also like that she requires no batteries. Ariel’s body is soft, and her arms, legs and head are hard. We have to remind our kids that Ariel does not go into the bathtub and that she needs to stay clean because she would not machine wash very well.

  • Matchbox Big Boots Dino Chopper

    Matchbox Big Boots Dino Chopper

    The Matchbox Big Boots Dino Chopper is aimed mostly towards children aged 3 years and up as there are small parts included with the toy. Not only do you get a great-looking, dinosaur safari themed helicopter; but Matchbox also includes three Big Boots characters and assorted tools for them to use. It is highly recommended that parents thoroughly read the instructions in order to discover all the fun, but not obvious, functions of the chopper! Very minimal assembly is required.

  • Take It Easel

    Take It Easel

    The Take It Easel is by far one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Within five minutes of opening it, my two year old son already had the board full of doodles. I love how it pops up into the triangle that allows him to decide which he wants to color on. I think the fact that you can also put paper in it like a real easel is awesome.

  • Fruit Ninja’s Watermelon Clip, NASCAR Full Blast Pull Back Car, and the Rock N Learn DVD

    Fruit Ninja’s Watermelon Clip, NASCAR Full Blast Pull Back Car, and the Rock N Learn DVD

    I am a mother of four, an educator and a grandmother. So when I won several prizes from Time to Play’s “Real Parents’/Real Reviews” contest, I was delighted to be able to participate in reviewing these items.

  • Banzai Spray N Splash Giraffe Pool

    Banzai Spray N Splash Giraffe Pool

    We received the Banzai Spray ‘N Splash Giraffe pool and were super excited to try it out! I have two kids, one 15 months and one 3 years. It looked perfect for the two of them. However, it is not big enough for any additional kids!

  • Blunders

    Blunders

    Blunders: “We Make Learning Manners Fun!” Teaching your children about manners? At first I was skeptical about the fun value of this game, but my concerns were soon allayed. This game is intended for ages 5+. My husband and I played with our 4 year old with much success – with our assistance, of course. Joining us was an 8 year old neighbour who is a big fan of games as well. The general idea behind this game is to teach children about manners and social etiquette in a fun way.

  • Super Miracle Bubble Glow Fusion Hi-Beam Illuminator

    Super Miracle Bubble Glow Fusion Hi-Beam Illuminator

    I recently reviewed the Super Miracle Bubbles Glow Fusion Hi-Beam Illuminator. I had seen this toy advertised, and was so thrilled to be able to try it in the backyard with my two girls. The instructions for the toy were very user friendly, but just be sure that you have 4 AAA batteries because batteries are not included. It took about 60 seconds to prime the bubble maker, and then it pumped out non stop bubbles for a good 10 minutes.

  • OWI kit Arachnoid

    OWI kit Arachnoid

    OWI kit Arachnoid is not your basic robot kit, it is much more. As soon as the kit came in the mail my husband knew that this would be the perfect spider for our Halloween parties.
