Oxy LED Colorized Auto Moving Projection Lights With 12 Replaceable Lens, Different Theme Light Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

oxy-led1

The Oxy LED Colorized Auto Moving Projection Lights With 12 Replaceable Lens, Different Theme Lights arrived and I was excited to see how it worked. Excited because I hate climbing ladders to put up Christmas lights but I want the house to be decorated and festive. So when it arrived I opened the box and was a little nervous about how it would work and if it would work. So I ran an extension cord to the front yard that is waterproof because we were going to be getting a lot of snow the next couple of days.

So I set up the Oxy LED Colorized Auto Moving Projection Lights With 12 Replaceable Lens, Different Theme Lights and I put it on the ground. I chose the theme that I wanted which was a Christmas theme. It was all ready to go, so I turned it on and it was just beautiful the colors, the theme was perfect and it wasn’t the same as other neighbors had. We have been seeing a lot of just red and green lights that flash around on the houses so we wanted something different. This theme fit the bill, it was just perfect. I went out to the street to see how it was looking and it looked great from all angles.

My son’s wanted to see the other themes so we did some switching so that they could see all the themes. When we had the Halloween one on the house, our neighbor yelled over to us, you know Halloween has passed right? I laughed and he said that he really liked the theme for Halloween that he hadn’t seen it before. We tried out several other themes as well and the neighbors were watching us play with the themes and then we put it back on the Christmas theme the boys had picked out. It was so pretty and it went all over the front of the house.

Oxy-Iso Color Correction Glasses For The Color Blind Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

color-blind-glasses

The Oxy-Iso Color Correction Glasses For The Color Blind arrived and I have to say that I was really curious to see if they would really work. When I heard about the Oxy-Iso Color Correction Glasses they had me wondering if they would really be able to see the colors that they weren’t able to see normally. Most have troubles seeing Red, green and Brown colors if they are color blind. I have a friend that is color blind and he was also curious if the glasses would help him to see the colors that he normally is not able to see which were red and green colors. He wanted to see them and see what he has been missing out on.

When the glasses arrived I brought them to him and he said he was going to try them out for a few days to see how they worked. So he was able to watch a movie and he was surprised that he was able to see the reds and greens. He really could view the movie with them on and see what we normally see. He also looked around his home and saw colors that he normally wasn’t able to see as well. He said that the glasses were comfortable to wear, and easy to get use to wearing as well. He did notice that it took his eyes a few minutes to readjust again after he took the glasses off. But other wise he really loved the Oxy-Iso Color Correction Glasses. He also said that he would recommend them for people who are color blind and would like to see the Red, Green and Brown colors.

How to Know When to Test Your Kid

for Colorblindness and Tips for Families and Educators

There are several early warning signs when a child is suffering from colorblindness. One tell-tell sign is that they smell their food before they eat it. Colorblind kids have a great nose for the food they are eating because they identify the food by smell as opposed to a distinguishing color. Another sign is that they often suffer in school. By identifying warning signs before first grade, parents can work with educators on helping kids overcome the difficulty of experiencing color deficiencies.

Having discovered the reason why humans see red-green colors, I want to share some signs on identifying colorblindness and offer some tips on how to correct this issue before they have any lasting developmental effects.

1.Does your child exhibit a low attention span when offered the chance to color? Most kids love to color and giving kids a coloring book should create at least a few minutes or even an hour of busy time. If a parent notices disinterest and a low attention span to coloring, this can signal a problem with your child being able to recognize color. One tip to see if the interest in coloring can increase, label color crayons or pencils with the name of the color and a number. Put the corresponding number on the picture and evaluate if your child becomes more engaged in the act of coloring.

2.Does your child have difficulties connecting with other people or reacting to emotion such as blushing or anger in other people’s expressions? Colorblindness actually handicaps children from seeing the blushes or exhaustion and other skin colors that happen for different emotional states, and that, in turn, can limit their ability to sense what others are feeling. This lack of reaction can often be a sign that a child needs testing.

3.Does colorblindness run in your family? Colorblindness is hereditary, thought to be found in eight percent of males and one percent of females, so if an adult family member is colorblind, the offspring should be tested, and at an early age. This is not just a vision test. Test specifically for colorblindness. There are several tests that identify color deficiencies, and some can even be found on the internet such as these Tests that are meant to be easy and created for younger children, and can also be performed at a pediatrician’s office.

4.Is your child exhibiting anxiety about school? A colorblind child can have anxiety about school and experience indifference or boredom when it comes to learning. When so many lessons are taught using color grouping and color coding, how can you blame them? To alleviate any anxiety, purchase Color Correction Glasses to be worn while doing homework and ask the teacher to have a pair on hand too to use when color-based educational lessons are being taught. Have the teacher explain how they help students see color as to not alienate anyone in the class. There are also some apps that help correct colorblindness that can be accessed from the classroom.

Colorblindness will come with some developmental difficulties, but if caught early, and with the use of technology and extra effort from parents and educators to help a child along it won’t impede too much on a child’s lifestyle.

The Oxy-Iso Color Correction Glasses would make a great gift for anyone in your family that is color blind. They will also be able to see all the red, green and brown colors that they have been missing out on.

Rocket Fishing Rod Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

rocket-rod-product

The Rocket Fishing Rod is able to cast the line out up to 30 feet. Children don’t have to worry about getting the hook caught on them as it drops down after the bobber hits the water. It also helps make getting the fishing line tangled and snagging it on things while fishing. It’s a great fishing rod for all ages, including those first time fisherman.

The fishing rod is Recommended for ages 8 and up. It includes the Rocket Fishing Rod, 1 Safety Bobber, 2 hooks, 150 feet of 8-pound test fishing line, 2 line stops, 1 weight and complete instructions. My oldest son is afraid that he will get hooked when he goes to cast so he was excited to try the Rocket Fishing Rod. We took it outside and I showed him that he couldn’t get hooked so he was really excited to try it out. We were in the yard and I had him away from trees and anything that he could hit with the bobber. So he let it cast it out and he had a huge smile on his face. He was so impressed with how far the bobber went and how easy it was for him to cast. He looked at me and said “Mom! Did you see that!” I told him that I sure did and his eyes just got huge.

Many of you know that my oldest son has special needs so we try to keep things as normal as possible for him. However, he was always afraid to cast out a fishing line. So I always did it for him, then he would reel in the fish if he caught one or he would reel in the line and when it got so close to him he would hand me the pole because he was afraid of the hooks. The Rocket Fishing Rod has put his mind at ease and he is so excited that he can now fish on his own and not worry about the hook. He can cast it on his own and reel it all the way in as well. He was so thrilled, the smile on his face was plastered there every time he told someone in the family that he could cast his own fishing pole now! So my dad had to come over to see him cast his fishing pole. So my son took it outside again with my dad and told me that I didn’t need to cast for him that he could do it now. So he cast out the line and my dad told him how proud he was of him for casting his own line out. Then he watched him reel it in and my dad was so excited for my son.

It’s going to be a long summer of fishing in the summer. I know he and my younger son will be up and ready to go fishing early because they are both excited about going now. My older son said that he is going to catch some big bass with his new pole. I love seeing the huge smile on his face and the fact that it’s the perfect pole for him to use and he is not afraid to use it. So we will be filling up his tackle box over the winter with more bobbers and line so that he is all ready for this coming summer. If you have a little fisherman (boy or girl) who is looking forward to fishing the Rocket Fishing Rod would make a great gift!

Rummikub Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

rumikub

Rummikub is a wonderful game for the whole family to play together. It is a family favorite here, from my son’s to my mother, we all love to play. It really helps with learning to count, colors, and having a great time together. The tiles come with numbers in different colors and smiley faces which are your wild tiles.

To start the game someone needs to be able to “Meld” which is where each player lays down the value of 30 points or they can not play and they will pick a tile and then it goes to the next player if they can not “Meld”. Then once you have “Meld” you can lay your tiles down in any points that are available on your tile holder. You continue to play till all the tiles are laid out. We have had so much fun playing this game. You can lay 3 of the same numbers but in different colors. The other tiles that you can lay down are the sequenced numbers but they must be in the same colors.

It has been so much fun watching my son’s learn to play and having a fun time playing. It has really helped them with their math skills, it’s a great Stem game for them to work on their small motor skills as well. My granddaughter’s have used the tiles to learn their colors when the kids play. We just have a lot of fun when we are playing. The boys favorite part is when they have titles that match the ones that we have all already laid down. So when I played the 6,7,8 in orange and they have the 9 orange they can play that tile on my tiles and get points for it.

You can play and keep score of you can play without keeping score. When we play with my son’s, I normally don’t keep a points sheet, we go by who ever runs out of tiles is the winner. The boys love playing the game and they have been asking for us to keep playing it because they love it so much. I can see us playing it a lot over the Christmas break when it’s to cold to go outside. I have already talked to my son’s about having an unplugged Christmas vacation. So we will be playing a lot of board games, science experiments, baking, and other fun activities.

This game will be hours of family fun to play, or you could play a quick game as well. If your looking for a great game for the family to play at Christmas time Rummikub should be on the top of your list. It is going to be a great time and a great change of pace if your looking for a new game to play. It would also make a great gift for anyone on your Christmas shopping list! Trust me they will be thanking you for the game. I know we are going to be bringing Rummikub camping with us as well! We love to stay at a cabin during the summer and we unplug for a week and just have a great time fishing, playing games, being out in nature, and having together time. It is something that we look forward to every summer.

Slap Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

slap-board-game

Now, if you want a fun trivia and an action game all in one then your going to love Slap. This is a trivia game that everyone will know the answers to. So the whole family can easily play. However, don’t let it fool you, just because everyone can play doesn’t mean it’s going to be an easy win!

Read a question aloud, then all players quickly write their answers on their flaps and let them go–the first flap to SLAP with the right answer earns a point! But think before you act because the fastest writer is not always right. They ask questions that everyone little and older will know. So everyone has an equal chance to win the points. But don’t get in to much of a hurry as it depends on who has the right answers to get the points first. So take your time and make sure it’s the right answer because those who slap it down quickly may not have the right answer even though they were quick.

When we were going to start to play my son’s groaned when I took the game out. However, I read a few of the cards to them before we started and they were saying “oh, I know the answer to those!” so I explained how we were going to play and then we were off to the races. The boys were excited to start but I warned them about just writing down any answer and slapping down their answer because it has to be the correct answer. So they agreed.

We started the game and they were having so much fun. However, they missed a few answers, so we started to take a little more time. They were so excited to start the game again. So we played on and my younger son was on a roll! He just loved playing and he was getting the correct answers. He reached the amount of points needed to play so he won the game. The next game my older son won, but we were laughing and just having so much fun. We continued to play and we were just having fun and it was really helping to improve their reading skills and spelling as well.

We play Slap quite a bit as it’s such a fun game to play, I also love that it promotes reading with them having to read the cards out loud and spelling as well as writing. So it really covers the small motor skills as well without the kids knowing that they are doing it. My son’s just love seeing if they can figure out the correct answer before anyoone else and to see who gets the points. I really liked playing Slap as well because it is really a fun and educational game. I would highly suggest this game for a family game night. It will really be a fun time for the whole family.

Who Tooted Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

who-tooted

Who loves to play games that will make you laugh? Who has a child that thinks passing gas is funny? This game you will have to try to keep a straight face if you can so that you don’t give away who tooted.

The Who Tooted Game Is a fun family game. When you start the game each player receives a whoopee cushion shaped controller to control the flatulence. Then you start the game, one of the controllers will light up and you then push the button to make a “toot” sound–the other players have to guess who did it! Now, of course only one person can make the tooting sound at a time and the rest need to guess who made the toot.

Now, while your playing you have to try to keep a straight face so that you won’t give away if it is you. I can tell you from experience that keeping a straight face while playing is not as easy as it sounds. The sounds are pretty funny but most of the time all the players start to laugh at the sound so you still can’t tell who it was over the laughing. We had such a fun time playing this game as a family. Even my mom joined in and I can tell you that she was thinking that we were crazy for playing but even she was laughing and having a great time.

My son’s have played with their friends as well and you can just hear them laughing every time someone “toots”. Their friends went home telling their parents that they had to have the game. I got a few phone calls from parents asking where they could get it because it was now the must have game for their child. They hadn’t heard of the game so they weren’t sure where to find it. I told them they could easily find it at Target, Toys R Us, and Amazon as well.

This would be a perfect game to play on a cold winter day when everyone has cabin fever. Have a family game night on the weekends and unplug to have some family fun. Everyone will have a great time and the laughter will never end. Don’t blame us when you can’t stop laughing and having family fun! It’s going to be a ton of fun for the whole family. Get your friends to join in the fun and take turns having a blast and trying to keep a straight face.

magic-mee-mees-sweetland

The Magic Mee Mee’s are new and all the rave I heard at the Toy And Game Fair that I attended. It was so wonderful meeting up with Jennifer at the Future Of Play booth. There were children flocking to the booth so of course we had to see what was so interesting there. The kids were busy playing and when we looked over they were looking at the different MagicMeeMees Singles, MagicMeeMees Playset Holidayland, and the MagicMeeMees Playset Sweetsland and other great Magic MeeMees sets.

I watched the kids play with the different Magic MeeMees and I didn’t even realize that I was smiling watching their little faces and their eyes get big as the Magic MeeMees moved towards each other and started chatting to each other and they were making friends with each other. It was so cute the way they just gravitated towards each other. The minute you pushed their buttons they were chatting and moving to find each other. You could even put them in your pocket and have a friend with one in their pocket and they would still try to get to each other. They were so adorable!

Then when you add in the sweet treats that they love to eat, they just make some cute noises. The Magic Mee Mees just love their foods. The food that everyone no matter if your vegan, Jewish, gluten free, or any other food allergies or diet needs comes down to they all love their Pizza! So they go nuts over pizza slices but there are so many different foods that you can have them eat and that they love. You can purchase the different MagicMeeMees 5 Pack Yummee Surprise food packs. So that they will have more foods to eat.

The MagicMeeMees Playset Sweetsland, MagicMeeMees Playset Holidayland and other great sets that they offer are a fun place for the Magic Mee Mees to play. They just love to play with all their little friends there and come together for a fun time. The children at the Toy and Game Fair just loved playing with the different playsets with the Magic Mee Mees as well. The children decided that one of their favorite playsets was the Sweetlands, I had to agree with them, what is not to love about all those sweets and the Magic Mee Mees playing around there.

The children were just having so much fun that I couldn’t wait to get home and play with them with my granddaughter’s. Who also agreed with the other children at the Toy and Game Fair they really loved playing with the MagicMeeMees Playset Holidayland and the MagicMeeMees Playset Sweetsland sets. They had so much fun. When they decided to play with the Magic Mee Mees, they just loved the way they would move close to each other. They were playing and having a great time. They were having so much fun, they were loving the way they played together and when I had them put them in their pocket they were laughing at the way they were trying to get to each other to be friends. The girls were just giggling and giggling. We have just had so much fun with the Magic Mee Mees. They will make a great gift for the holidays or birthday.

My son’s came up with so many new super hero’s and I loved hearing about where they thought each one came from. What their super powers were and who they were going to save and who their villain they were battling were. They had a whole plot about each super hero they created and we put them on foam board so that they could create a super hero universe. We built some buildings from foam boards and a town for them to save and live in. We had so much fun with the Action Plates Super Hero drawing set. The boys have been playing with it daily and just love the new super hero’s and having them creating new fun for them.

They are already asking if they can bring it in the car on the trip to Grandma’s house as it’s a 3 hour drive and they want to do that while we drive there. I thought it was a great idea, it’s compact, the pieces are great for traveling. I won’t be hearing “Are we there yet???” every two minutes.
