Star Wars Rogue One Jyn Erso Action Figure 20″ Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

jyn-erso-action-figure

I received the Star Wars Rogue One Jyn Erso Action Figure 20″ for review. It was perfect timing since the Star Wars Rogue One movie just came out and my son’s are just so excited about the movie. They have all the star wars movies and they can’t wait for the Star Wars Rogue One Movie to come out on Blu-ray. They are huge star wars fans so they were so excited to play with the Star Wars Rogue One Jyn Erso Action figure. It was a large action figure that they could pose and recreate scenes from the movie with.

The boys have a bunch of different sized Star Wars action figures so she fit right in with them. I have to say that she looks so much like the actual character. So the boys were so excited to add her to their collection. My granddaughter’s love to play with the boys as they have seen all the star wars movies as well. Of course their favorite characters include the Ewoks, which they think are just so adorable and they want to have one. So when Jyn came they asked their uncles if they could be her when they play together. The boys were happy to let them play with her and my other granddaughter wanted to be princess leia. They use to fight over the Princess Leia action figure but now they can both have one while playing with their uncles.

They were having such a great time creating fun Star wars scenes with their action figures. They were laughing and having fun, they even let me join the fun and be Jyn. I was so excited to be able to join in the fun as normally I watch them playing. Jyn was really a fun character to be, the action figure worked very well. She has moving parts from her arms, legs, and head all moved. They were able to be posed so that she was looking like she was getting ready to fire her weapon. She stood so tall as well. My son’s have the R2D2 robot that is large as well so they got him and R2D2 was having a conversation with Jyn. It was so great to watch the kids having so much fun.

Your child could also have a great time with Jyn Erso as well as they recreate scenes from the movie. Have some fun creating new scenes or just having a great time playing with her. She really is a great action figure to add to your collection to have fun with.
Bring your star wars fun to life with all the wonderful Star Wars Rogue One action figures and have hours of fun recreating the movie or other scenes that you come up with. The fun will never end with Jyn, because you can always create even more fun times. You can purchase Jyn at your local Target store for the holidays. She will make a great gift this holiday season and don’t forget to add more of the Star Wars Rogue One Characters to your collection from the movie as well.

The Oregon Trail Card Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

oregon-trail-card-game

You may remember being in school and playing the Oregon trail game on the computer or at home. You were on the wagon trail and would be on an adventure but then find out that you got the chicken pox, or you lost food, your water was tainted or whatever the case was. You would continue on the trail and wait to see what would happen to you next. It was a great way to learn about how things really were during the wagon train days. Since you couldn’t be there it was very interesting to learn about in the game form.

Well, now there is a new Oregon Trail Card Game that you can play at home with your family. Kids can learn about what it’s like on the wagon trail and how they use to live. It was really a interesting time and this is a fun game that is also educational as well. It will help them to know so much about that Era and what people had to go through to make it to a better life, well if they made it there of course. I use to love to play that computer game and it was always interesting to see where the game would take you. If you would make it to the place you wanted or if you would pass away on the trail and have to start the game over again to see how far you could get in the next round.

I was excited to play the game with my son’s. Well, one reason would be because they always make me feel so old with questions like “Did they have shoes when you were little Mom.” they did! Really? One of my favorite questions and leave it to my boys… “Mom, were dinosaurs around when you were little?” “Eh, NO! There were no dinosaurs unless they were in a museum like you see.” They will make you feel really old in about 2 minutes flat. lol So I was fully prepared for them to have a whole new set of questions after we played but I got to stay young and they didn’t ask “Did you have to live like this Mom?” lol Instead we played several games of The Oregon Trail and they learned so much from the game. They had questions but they were more about why was it like that during the Era and why things are different today. It really opened us up for some great conversations.

When we played a game, it was really interesting for the boys to play. They really liked learning about the Oregon Trail and what the people endured during that time. My youngest son the first game died of starvation, he was asking why they didn’t have enough food and why they didn’t just go to the grocery store to get more. My older son got dysentery which was the start of another conversation. We were having so much fun playing and the boys were learning so much about how it use to be during that time. They learned so much from playing as well. They went and played some games with my mom as well and she got the Rattlesnake bite so the boys were telling her that she shouldn’t be playing with snakes. We had so many great games that we played and each game the boys learned something new. However, it was also fun to play as well. It would really make a great game to play with the family, in a classroom or to bring on a camping trip or car trip to play while your on your way.

This game would make a great gift for a child for the holidays it’s both fun and educational as well. Your child can learn about the Era and have a fun time while do it. You can find the Oregon Trail Card Game at your local Target store.

Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

shark-genius-steam-mop

Is it just me or are you always trying to find a way to get your house clean in less time? I am always looking for a way to get the house clean and looking great but still be able to keep up with my crazy busy schedule. I use to have to stay up and wait for everyone to be asleep before I could sweep and mop the floors. Which if you have done this yourself you know that the next morning your wishing you had gone to bed.

The Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System has really helped me with being able to sweep and steam clean the floors first thing in the morning. They dry so quickly so by the time I wake the kids up for school they have already dried and we are ready to start our day. I love the way the head of the mop is one that you can flip over and use both sides. It’s easy to fill with water and it doesn’t take long before your ready to steam clean the floors. I have found that it really cuts my cleaning time down and my floors look great!

The regular mops you just have wet floors that take at least 30 minutes to dry and even longer in the winter time. So it has to be done at night or if you can sneak it in during the day when the family isn’t going to be running in and out of the room. Which in our house, it’s like putting a welcome sign out to come into the room that I am cleaning. It never fails if I am cleaning the kitchen floor they of course need a drink or a snack just at that moment that I am almost done. If it’s the bathroom of course someone wants to use it and the floor is all wet and then I have shoe prints so I have to redo it again. Which never seems to fail!

When I use the Shark Genius Steam mop it dries quickly and always before someone needs to use the bathroom or a snack or drink. When the kids spill it’s easy to clean up as well. It just takes a few seconds and no more mess. I also love that I can wash the mop heads in the washer and they are ready to go again! It really cuts cleaning time down and keeps the floors looking great! My son’s have now found a new love of helping me keep the floors clean with the Shark Genius Steam mop. They have now started to clean up their own spills. What mom doesn’t love that! They just love using it because it’s so easy to use, it’s not to heavy for them to use. My youngest will go get the broom and sweep the floor and then steam mop it. He just loves how easy it is to use, and that he can do it by himself. Although I watch him to see what he is doing he has how to use it down pat. So even the children can use the Shark Genius Steam mop with no problems. That’s right Mom’s and Dad’s, you can now add steam mopping to their chore charts.

The Shark Genius Steam mop can also be found at Walmart, Best Buy, Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Target, Sears and other major retailers. If your looking for a great gift for this holiday season, I would recommend the Shark Genius Steam mop to make someone you loves life easier! Don’t forget to grab one for your home while your getting them a gift because you deserve it!

Lee Dream Jeans Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

lee-dream-jeans1

I received a pair of the Lee Dream Jeans to review for our Christmas Gift Guide. I have wore Lee Jeans before but these were different then any pair that I have had in the past. The material was very soft, stretchy, and so comfortable.

I chose a pair of Black Lee Dream Jeans to review. I really thought that they would be like the other Lee Jeans that I had purchased in the past. However, they weren’t. I first felt the material and it was softer then the other jeans that I had purchased in the past. I was surprised when I put the jeans on they were the perfect fit, the jeans stretched with me, the material was so comfortable, and I usually have a problem with the stitching on the sides of the jeans annoying my legs. However, the Lee Dream Jeans did not annoy my legs, I could barely tell they were there.

The Black was a perfect shade of black, and when I washed them several times they remained that same shade and did not lose any of the color. Some of my jeans that I have purchased have lost some of the color so I was happy to see that these were holding it very well. The waist was very comfortable and fit just perfect. There was no rubbing on my waist the material was again so soft and didn’t bug me at all. I have a couple of herniated discs in my back so it at times makes finding jeans a process. However, I was happy to see that there were no problems with the Lee Dream Jeans. It can cause problems with the stitching, the waist can be an issue, and how they fit can be an issue with my back as well. However, I had no problems with the Lee Dream Jeans. I even told my mom who has the same problems that we were going to take her to the store and have her try on some Lee Dream Jeans as well because she has the same issues as I do. So I can’t wait to see how she likes them as well.

I will be purchasing more of the Lee Dream Jeans as well. I just love the fit, the way they are so comfortable, and also that they work with me when I am doing things. I am always on the go and jeans that can keep up with me and be comfortable at the same time are always on my list but not always easy to find. I have to say that several brands of jeans started out soft and comfortable but changed after I washed them. I didn’t have that problem with the Lee Dream Jeans, they were exactly the same after each washing. Which was a pleasant surprise, it was just so wonderful to find a pair of jeans that fit everything that I need. I can tell you that it’s not an easy task for that to happen. I normally have to go to many stores and try on a number of jeans to find 1 to 2 pairs that I can wear. So for them to just me mailed to me and fit so great, it was a shock. So I can’t wait to buy more of them and in different colors. The Lee Dream Jeans will make the perfect addition to your wardrobe or to give as a gift.

Word Winder Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

word-winder

Word Winder Game is a great educational game but a lot of fun as well. I saw it at the Toy and Game Fair in Chicago and the kids were having so much fun playing it. They were all standing in line to learn to play the Giant Word Winder Game and Giant Math Winder Game it was so much fun to watch them playing the game. There were always new children wanting to learn how to play and they were standing before the giant game board just having so much fun.

I brought home the Word Winder Game and played with my son’s. The object of the game is to make different words on the board with your chips. The winner will have their words going all the way across the board. The object of the game is to block the person your playing with and get your words going straight across the board. It’s a fun game that any one can play and they will have a great time playing. My son’s and I played several games and they were playing new words every game. It’s a great way to expand their word selections and practice their spelling words as well. It has also helped to increase my son’s spelling of words as well. They both love to play it to see who can get their words across the board first.

I also love that they offer the Giant Word Winder Game and Giant Math Winder Game that is perfect for schools, Church functions, Boys and Girls Scouts, Boys and Girls clubs and other facilities as well. The large boards make it possible for a classroom to play the game together and learn more new words and math problems. It was so amazing to watch the children playing and figuring out addition, subtraction as well as multiplying while playing the large math games. I was so highly impressed with the game boards and how when the children play and change the boards around that no two games were ever the same. They were always different because of how the board was set up. But I noticed that no matter how the board was set up that the children were always having a great time!

I also have to say that I am completely impressed with the way that you can do a fundraiser with Word Winder for your school to purchase the giant word or math winder. They wanted to make sure that any school, club or other facilities that would like to have their game for educational and fun purposes would be able to earn it for their facility. Which I think is just wonderful and will help them have it for their students or children that are apart of their facility. You can contact them to discuss their fundraiser options that are available. I would love to see this at my son’s school and will be discussing it with out PTO at our next meeting. All of their games would make a great gift to a child or to a school or facility that could use more educational products.

Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber is going to be a huge hit this holiday season. Max can tow up to 100 lbs, climb obstacles, and the massive fun that your child will have with him. It’s going to be a rough and tumble ride and hours of fun!

My son went just crazy over Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber. He was so excited to see how much it would pull and how much fun he would have. He got it out of the box and he was so excited to start playing with it. He hooked it up to a chair and started Max up and Max pulled the chair. He was so amazed that the chair was actually moving. He was hooking Max up to other items around the house and pulling them as well because he wanted to see how much Max would pull. He was having a blast, then he was pulling some of his other toy trucks because they broke down and needed some help.

He was taking Max on so many different adventures. We had gotten some snow so he wanted to see how Max would do in the snow. So he took Max outside and had Max going over snow hills and he was so excited that Max was able to handle anything that he threw at it. They were having so much fun. He brought it back in the house and they were back having fun again. He was having so much fun with Max. He went to school the next day telling all his friends about the fun he had with Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber. So of course he wanted them to see it so I had to bring it to school for him to show his friends.

His friends were just loving Max as much as my son did. They were having so much fun on the playground with Max. So all the parents were asking where they could get Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber for their children. I told them that Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber is available at K-mart, Toys R Us, Walmart, and Amazon.The kids were just having a blast with Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber. They all took turns with Max and tried different adventures with him. It was so funny to watch them all come up with new things that Max had to pull or do. They didn’t want the fun to end but it was cold outside and everyone had to go. I have a feeling it went on every boys Christmas list and some of the girls as well.

The kids were asking if we could play again soon, it was just so cute! They were just not wanting the fun to end. When we got back home, my son’s were having a great time. They played all the way till dinner time and then we ate and they were back at it again. They just couldn’t get enough of Max Tow Truck Cliff Climber. It would make a great gift for birthdays, Christmas or just for them to play with.

Tic Stac Toe Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

tic-stac-toe_box

There is a new twist on playing Tic Tac Toe, meet Tic Stac Toe Game the 3D version of Tic Tac Toe. The normal game of Tic Tac Toe is played on a board with just X’s and O’s and you try to block the other player from getting 3 in a row. The Tic Stac Toe game has taken it to a whole new level because you can now stack the X’s and O’s on top of each other and create a little more complex game of Tic Tac Toe.

The Tic Stac Toe game is still done with X’s and O’s just like the normal Tic Tac Toe game. But the pieces are now able to be stacked up on top of each other so that there are more ways to win and there are more ways to have fun playing this game. They have made the X’s red and the O’s white so that you can view the board and players moves easier. My son’s were playing the game together and I was showing them how to play. They were staking and having a great time. It can be a quick game for the family to play together. When the boys say that they are “bored”, I have to laugh at them and tell them to go get the Tic Stac Toe game so that they can play together. They are off and running for the game.

When I played with the boys they picked the game up right away. It was easy to explain and they just loved playing. They were able to figure out how to easily stack the X’s and O’s and how to win the game as well. It can be a very quick game or it could take a while depending on the age of the kids. When you get 3 in a row then you win for the easy version of the game. However, if you want to play a little more difficult version of the game to really get your brains working you can connect 4 in a row, in any direction. It really gives the game a fun twist when you play with the 4 in a row.

When my granddauhter’s play we have them do the 3 in a row so that it’s easier for them. They love being able to stack the X’s and O’s, they have everyone watch while they do it. They are so proud of them selves when they get them to stay. They are so cute they sit and clap when they get the X’s and O’s to stay where they want them and then they clap when they win the game as well and say “YAY! Let’s play again!” It has been so much for all the kids to play.

The kids are having an unplugged day and they are going to play board games, make some arts and crafts, and we are going to bake some delicious Christmas Cookies. The Tic Stac Toe Game would be a great gift for ages 6 and up. It would also be perfect for taking with you on a car trip, camping or having an unplugged weekend as well. Let the fun begin!

Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

harry-potter-and-the-magical-beast-game

Calling all Harry Potter Fans! If you weren’t aware the Harry Potter Magical Beasts movie is out in Theaters. If you haven’t seen it then put it on your list to go see. It’s a new spin off of the Harry Potter movies and from what I have heard the movie is as amazing as the other Harry Potter movies so you won’t be disappointed. So you can enter another world again and see all the mystical creatures that are running amok. Then we have a game that is a must have for Harry Potter fans as well.

The Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game isn’t like any other game that you have played. It has a game board but it’s not just one sided, you can flip the board to go from the interior of Hogwarts to the grounds to continue to play and find the clues and elements to capture the beasts that are running amok. You can choose which player you want to be from Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, or Ginny Weasley. Your favorite wizard can be yours to play the game with and you can always switch wizards as you start a new game, so your not always going to be one wizard if you do not want to.

I have to say that I was soooooo impressed with this game when I saw it at the Toy and Game Fair in November. I couldn’t believe that the board was able to go between the grounds and Hogwarts with a simple flip of the game board. They really pulled out all the stops with this game. It will get Harry Potter fans completely excited about playing. My oldest son is a HUGE Harry Potter fan, he has all the movies and has wore them out so much that we had to purchase new Harry potter movies. So when I showed him the game and he was so excited that he wanted to play right away.

So we set up the game board and we started to play. My son loved that he was able to be his favorite characters in the movies. He was Harry Potter and I was Hermione when we played. It was such a great adventure to play with him and get clues as we played so that we could capture the magical beasts. We loved that it had the Hogwarts interior and the grounds, it made if feel like you were apart of being in the movie as well. We have been playing the game over and over again as my son’s just love the game. We will be playing again today as it’s cold outside and the boys requested another game day. So I told them that after we shovel the new snow that we got last night that we would come in for some hot chocolate and play games.

If you have a Harry Potter Fan on your Christmas list they are going to love playing Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game. It’s really fun and creative with the swinging boards so your not stuck with just one board to play on. I have to say that it’s a great game that even I like to play with my son’s. Let the games begin and have your wands at the ready! The fun never ends with the Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game.
