max-cliff-climber

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.

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.
