PS4 Wheel Of Fortune & Jeopardy Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

wheel of fortune and Jeopardy

I received the PS4 Wheel Of Fortune & Jeopardy Game to review with my son’s. They were so excited when it arrived! I have to say that I loved the graphics of the game. They were very crisp and clear. The boys were really looking forward to playing the game as they love spelling and trivia games.

We started to play and my one son wanted to play Wheel of Fortune. So he started and I was so excited to see how well he was doing with the game. It is a great way to check what he is learning as well. He was figuring out the words in the puzzles and was so excited that he was able to. But at the same time, he was having a great time playing and the joy on his face when he figured out the puzzles was just priceless. Almost as though he didn’t know he could figure out the puzzles.

I took a turn with the Wheel Of Fortune as well. We were all laughing and having a great time. I was letting the boys help me to play, Yes, I am not very game system suave but the boys find it a riot to watch me play and teaching me how to play a new game. I get a lot of “No, mom that’s not how you do it!” lol However, I did very well on these games and had a great time playing. I also tried the Jeopardy game as well and I really liked the board and how it was just like the game on t.v. . It was fun and fully of interesting trivia questions for us to answer.

I let my other son play the Jeopardy game. He was having a fun time. Now, he is 11 years old so some of the trivia questions were a little hard for him, which I expected. However, he learned so much from the game and the questions. Which turned him onto asking more questions about the questions and us learning more about many topics. He really loved the game as did my older son. They both took turns playing and I was really impressed with how much they really liked the game and how much fun they were having with it. I have very inquisitive son’s and they are always wanting to know more about everything so it was the perfect game for them. It was a great time playing, and we look forward to continuing to learn even more from this great game.

Heebie Jeebies Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Heebie Jeebies game

I received the Heebie Jeebies Game to review with our family. My son’s and I played the game together and their sister and her boyfriend joined in to see what we were playing. We explained how to play the game. That everyone votes on the four cards placed down in front of everyone to see which one everyone thought would give them the Heebie Jeebies.

Now, I have to say that a lot of what the cards had on them gave us all the heebie jeebies. But it’s about everyone guessing which one would most give you the heebie jeebies. If the players guess correctly then they receive a point. It’s a fun and face paced game, it takes about 15-30 minutes to play. But there is so much laughing that goes on through the game when you read what are on the four cards displayed. I really enjoyed playing it with the kids and finding out what grosses them out.

My son’s just loved the game, they were loving all the different cards and what things they had on them to gross everyone out. However, it’s hard to keep a straight face when your reading all the cards and not giveaway which card you will be voting on. Some just make you laugh so hard, and others you really want to make that face that you are cringing what you just read, so you have to watch your facial expressions. When you get several cards that all make you get the Heebie Jeebies then you choose the one that gives the most. because of course you would like to get the points for getting it right.

We had so much fun playing the game over and over again. My son’s friends just loved playing with them. They were having so much fun with the game. They were trying hard not to give away the card they were going to choose but you would hear “EWWWWWWWWWWWW!” or “YUCK!” and of course you could just tell which card they would be choosing but it was so funny trying to watch them not give it away and play the game together. There are some cards about spiders, picking your nose, about the toilet, and so many other things so at times it was so hard to choose which one was the worst of them all. But it was amazing to see everyone laughing and having so much fun together. It’s a great family game that the kids will want to play and see who they can give the Heebie Jeebies to and score enough points to win the game.

Sherlock Homes game 2

I received the Sherlock Homes And Moriarty’s Web Game to review. Now, I have to say that I was excited to see how the game worked and how to solve the mysteries in the game. I did love the game pieces when I saw them as they looked easy enough for children and adults to play the game. I was lucky enough to meet the creator of the game Lucy Keifer at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair this month. Her passion for Sherlock homes and the game she created just pours out when she was talking to everyone about Sherlock Homes And Moriarty’s Web Game.

While playing Sherlock Homes And Moriarty’s Web Game you will want to be careful Moriarty is ruthless and brilliant, and unless you’re very, very careful you will find yourself caught in his web. You will need to solve the crimes to catch Moriarty and win the game but it’s not always just that easy, there are always twists and turns that will come up during the game. Our family played at Thanksgiving and we had a great time trying to solve the crimes and try to capture Moriarty before he can tangle you into his web. It really is a fast paced game but it will keep you thinking and trying to solve the case.

We played with 6 people over Thanksgiving and we were all having a great time playing. When one game ended new players would join the game because they wanted a chance to solve the crimes as well. We were having so much fun playing and changing the players so that everyone could have fun. My son’s were loving playing as well as the adults. I have to say that we thought it was one of the best games that we have played in a while. Everyone loved that the game is always changing so you do not get bored playing. They had such a fun time playing that we played again the next day. It’s always a fun adventure each game that we play together.

Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

stylophone Gen X-1

I received the Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer and I have to say that I was pretty excited to try it out as I had not seen anything like it before in stores. Now, I was also worried about how easy is it to use and does it really work?!?! You know how you see some products and they should do one thing but sometimes they fall short. So I had many questions whirling around that I really needed answered before I could decide if I really liked the Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer.

I loved the size of it, the Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer is very compact and portable and can be taken anywhere you go. I loved that you could plug in a headset so that you didn’t bother anyone around you if they were studying, watching t.v. or whatever others in your home are doing when they play with it. It is also made well, it’s not a cheap piece of plastic, you know what I mean, those things we purchase then get and regret the minute we open it because we know it’s going to be broken in no time flat.

When I took it out of the box, I was really impressed with the way it was made. I was intimidated when I saw all of the switches and buttons but I have to say that it normally only lasts a few minutes, it’s my initial reaction to a lot of new things but then I just dive right in. I read the instructions and I was really excited to get started with theStylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer. I have to say it was really cool the way you could make all different sounds with the Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer.

I was really loving all the different sounds and pitches that you could make with theStylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer. It really was amazing that it could do so much different tones, sounds, and pitches depending on what you adjusted while playing. We have been having so much fun with it. My son’s and my daughter’s boyfriend were having a great time playing it and seeing who could come up with the most unique sounds. We were having such a fun time playing it and everyone coming up with something new. We even had a judges round where some played and some judged the sounds. Some were so funny, that you couldn’t help but laugh. We have been playing it everyday since it arrived. My daughter’s boyfriend and some of his friends have a recording studio that they use to record songs that they sing. So he asked if he could borrow the Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer to take to the studio with them to give them some unique sounds for their music. I of course thought that it was a great idea for him to use for his sessions. So they are really excited to see how it will work with their music. I have to say that I can’t wait to see how it sounds as well.

The Stylophone Gen X-1 Portable Analog Synthesizer would be perfect for children, teens or the adults on your holiday shopping list. It really does some amazing space sounds as well as other unique sounds and the whole family can get in on the fun!

PeachSkin Sheets Review And Giveaway Exp: 11/30 #Bedding #Contest #Giveaway

Peachtreesheet sets

I received a set of PeachSkin Sheets to review. When they arrived I have to say that they came in a cute little bag that you can store them in when they are not in use or you can place them in your linen closet.

When I opened the little bag that the sheets arrived in, they were the perfect color that I had requested. The sheets were so soft, the material felt so rich that I could wait to go to sleep on them later that night. As I made the bed, I finished and I just laid on the sheets thinking that maybe a nap would be wonderful. Of course my son’s came in and climbed on my bed so they could see what the sheets felt like as well. They loved the feel as much as I did. Of course they also decided that I wasn’t going to be getting a nap as well.

I did relax on them for a long while, and then I finished making the bed. The new sheets were going to have to wait a little while longer. They were so soft, so inviting, and I was looking forward to having a great rest that night while curled up in them. When I did finally make it to bed that night I pulled up the sheet along with my blanket and just kept rubbing my hand over the sheets. I slept really well that night, so much so that in the morning, well, I wanted to just sleep a little longer and stay wrapped into the sheets and blankets. However, Mom duties called, and there was breakfast to make, but I could still daydream that I was back in bed all wrapped up in them.

Updated Color Swatches

I love that Peachskin Sheets has a wide variety of colors available to match your color wheel in your bedroom. Did you know they also offer a free sheet swatch for you to see the colors and feel the sheets for yourself. They also offer a $55 Color of the month deal that come in a variety of sizes and colors. The deal changes every month, and is a great deal to keep adding to your linens! So that the whole family can have PeachSkin Sheets on their bed. They offer sheet sizes from Dorm, Twin, Full, Queen, California King, Regular King, and Split King sized sheets as well. So they are sure to have the perfect size for your bed.

We are so excited to also announce that PeachSkinsSheets.com has allowed us to do a giveaway on our blog for a set of sheets that you will be able to choose to fit your bed and the color you would like as well. How amazing is that! The holidays are coming, it’s getting colder outside and how great would it be to curl up in new sheets this holiday season! We would like to thank PeachSkinSheets.com for allowing us to have this great giveaway! Good Luck everyone!

SCRAAAM Coaster GT Kids Lightweight Balance/Run Bike Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

scraaam balance bike

I received the SCRAAAM Coaster GT Kids Lightweight Balance/Run Bike to review for our blog. It is just so stinking cute the color and size of the bike is just perfect for my granddaughter. She just loved it when she saw the pink. She is 3 years old and wants to ride a bike like her sister and cousin but her balance needs some work even with training wheels on a bike she is afraid to sit on the bike. The SCRAAAM Coaster GT Kids Lightweight Balance/Run Bike will help her learn to balance a bike while still being able to ride with her cousin and sister. The SCRAAAM Coaster GT Kids Lightweight Balance/Run Bike doesn’t have pedals as it’s used for helping the children learn how to balance so that they can ride a regular bike and have the skills to ride it.

I helped her to get on the bike and showed her how to use it and she had on her elbow, knee pads and helmet so she was ready to ride. We took some practice rides so she could get use to it. She was then ready to ride on her own, she is figuring out how to balance on her own now. She fell down a couple of times during her learning rounds, but she is a tough little cookie, she got up and giggled and got back on and started to ride again. She was so proud of herself for falling down and then giving it another try, she told me that she was okay, and she was going to learn to ride her bike.

We worked together and she did so well, it was so adorable when she would yell “Look at me! I’m a big girl!” The huge smile on her face was just priceless to say the least. She was on her way by herself and just loved to go back and forth and show everyone how big she was. She was pushing her legs and keeping her balance pretty well for only using the bike for a short time. She told me that soon she would be riding a big bike like the other big kids and that she was a big girl now with her big girl bike. She made sure that anyone who walked by knew it as well. lol

The low bars on the bike make it easy for the children to get on and off the bike. They can use their legs to make the bike go as there are no pedals. So it helps them to get use to riding and balancing on the bike. They come in both blue and pink colors for you to choose from. They would make a great gift for the Holiday season or birthday. Your child will have hours and hours of fun riding their bike and learning how to balance.

Revel Star Wars Last Jedi Models Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Star wars millennium falcon

I received the Revel 1/78 Poe’s Boosted X-wing Fighter™ Plastic Model Kit, 1/164 Millennium Falcon™ Plastic Model Kit and 1/164 First Order Heavy Assault AT-M6 Walker™ Plastic Model Kit the Last Jedi Star Wars Models to put together with my son’s. They are huge star wars fans and have watched every movie released. So they were so excited about the models and putting them together with me. We looked at both of the models and the boys chose which one they would like to put together.

star wars walker model

Since it was their second models they were putting together I just wanted to see if they could put it together by themselves. I have to say that made them pretty excited, so I was working on my laptop and watching them but just peeking to make sure all was going well with putting them together. They put the pieces out in front of them and started to read the instructions on how to put the model together. The boys were laughing and having a great time putting their model’s together.

They were doing really good putting them together and of course I acted like I was not paying attention but I was watching so I could see if it was easy or hard for them to put together. They were having no problems putting each piece together and you could just see in their eyes how excited they were as they continued to put it together. They kept telling each other to look and see how far each of them had gotten on their model. When they had finished the models, I was thrilled to see that they had not needed me to help them at all which was great since it was only the second model that they had put together. I figured they would need a little guidance but they did it all by themselves. When I asked the boys if it was difficult at any point to put the models together they stated it was not hard but that they loved the finished models.

I have to say that they are so excited about making models now and want to have shelves in their room to display them on. They are both avid fans of Revel models now. They wanted to know when they would be getting the next model to add to their collection. I told them that they better add it to their Santa lists so that he knows what they would like. So both of the boys have been look for which models they would like to add to their lists on the site. I have to say that before the boys put the models together they had said that they did not want to put any together they were not interested in them at all. However, it is now a whole different story. They now want to put them together and start a collection.

The pieces for the models are a nice size and when they are put together go together easily. They also loved the Star Wars models, they really kept their interest as well as got them excited about making more of them. They just loved the way they looked when they were put together. Both of the boys stated they looked just like the ones in the movies. They had to show everyone how well they did as they were so proud of the models. Everyone that they showed them to just loved the models and want to get and make them as well. You can use the store locator to find where to purchase these great
