You might already know this about me but I am a huge collector. I love to collect things. Funko Pops, toys, figurines – anything Disney or geeky related, I want it. I almost never open the boxes and even if I do, I rarely play with them. Yes, I am that kind of collector, and I know if drives some people crazy. It certainly drives my children nuts, I can tell you that. Whenever a new movie comes out, I want all the toys. For my office. And I don’t let them touch them. It’s no different with Ralph Breaks The Internet.
My youngest daughter is obsessed with DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free on Netflix. From the moment she first watched it, it became her favorite. Every night, every single night, she watches an episode. She has watched all of them several times and they don’t get old to her. I am 99.9% sure she has memorized every line in every episode. This holiday season I knew she needed a special Spirit Riding Free gift, and I found the perfect one from PLAYMOBIL!
If you know anything about me you know I am a bit of a Disney fan. So when I heard about some amazing toys coming from Just Play Toys to celebrate Mickey’s 90th Anniversary, you know I was excited! They sent me some that now have a home in the office. My daughters tried to steal the adorable Steamboat Willie plush, but they haven’t succeeded yet. OK, every now and then I let them sleep with him in their bed, but he lives in my office. These are total must haves for any Mickey fan!
We travel a lot, and it is hard to keep the kids entertained while on-the-go. That is where PLAYMOBIL carry cases come in to the picture! These cases are the perfect size to take some fun toys along with us. They will easily fit in a backpack, suit case, or even in my young daughters’ hands! When we go to stay at a hotel, they each take a case with them – packed with PLAYMOBIL fun!
I don’t know about your family, but mine is always on the edge of their seat waiting for Shark Week to come to TV! To help celebrate I am letting you know about some of our favorite shark related toys and DVDs. And then, I am going to give a Shark Week package away to one lucky reader! Good luck – and stay out of the water this week (yikes!).
Celebrate Summer and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with these Must Have Dinosaur Toys! | #JurassicWorld
The opening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has set sales of dinosaur-themed toys stampeding! Dinosaurs have always been popular with kids, but now it is growing. I know my girls love dinosaurs! Here are just a few dinosaur toys that are sure to have your kids excited. Fill your summer with dinosaur fun!
My kids live for summer – as I am sure most do. Especially at their young age – they are 5 and 7. My whole family looks forward to grilling dinners, playing games in the yard, and just having fun together in the warm weather. Something else my girls are passionate about? Well that would be PJ Masks. Like their Mama, they are big superhero fans. I have started them young with stories about Iron Man and Spider-Man, and so when they first saw PJ Masks on Disney Junior, they fell in love! This summer I am combining two of their loves, outside fun and PJ Masks!
If you’ve got kids in the house, you’ve probably have conversations with the words snot, boogers or poop. Lord knows I do! My girls are 5 and 6 and they LOVE potty humor. They just cannot get enough of it. And OK, my husband and I can’t get enough of it either. Second on their list is probably slime, so when those things combine, magic happens. Tactile compound maker Mythical Slyme is on trend with their stretchy, gooey putty tins of Unicorn Boogers, Unicorn Tears, glittery pink Unicorn Poop, and more!
This summer, I have been on the hunt for new toys for my girls. Fun things for the whole family, that they can enjoy inside on rainy days, and outside when the weather is nice. Here in Upstate New York we don’t have a lot of summer time. We basically skip Spring and go right in to Summer after Winter. We need to take advantage of the time we get. Since I have been researching lots of great toys, I figured I would share the list with you guys. Enjoy!
I am surrounded by artists in my house. Trust me, I am not one, but my husband and daughters are. One thing they have always wanted to do was make a claymation video, so we were excited when we received a claymation kit so that we could make our own mini movie. Lionsgate sent it to us along with a copy of Early Man to inspire us to make a movie featuring Hognob. We had so much fun doing this, and I hope you all make one too! It is really easy to do – just check out this instructional video starring the cast of Early Man!
