Surprisingly Fun!!

This game is so fun! All of us like it. I like that it has a soft sound level and it can be played with another or solo. The actual toy seems very sturdy and the voice giving the commands is just amusing.

For those who haven’t tried the orginal Bop-It, this game is hysterical. The game gives you commands to Bop it, Twist it, Pull it, Spin it, Flick it and Shake it! And each time you get a command correct, you get another command and the game goes even faster. The music is catchy as well!

This seems so simple and yet it is so fun.

I recommend for ages 6 and up, although the box says 8, Em loves this!

Approximate retail price: $24.99. (Includes 3 “AAA” batteries). See more on Hasbro Games.

Available on Amazon right now for $18!  Bop It XT

I get to give one away! Some little (or big) child will love this game!

Create and then work with your creations

Mega Bloks and the Blok Squad have a mission for kids ages 5 and up!

Build and then play, completing work “missions” and you are the hero. These new playsets from Mega Bloks are for your little builder who is looking for more of a challenge than micro and mini blocks and who have a little patience and curiosity.

The kit I got from Team Mom to review is the Blok Squad Construction Site Set. The value is great at $9.99. I have paid WAY more for building sets before and some of the details and plastic seemed a bit nicer, but again, $9.99? For a whole set? That is great. This particular set has 218 pieces-that is a lot of little pieces! But, for a building kid, it is a fun time.

These buildable playsets come with themes of everyday heroes like fire patrol, police, construction.

For this price, you can be a hero and so can your little one!

I received a Blok Squad playset for our review for Team Mom. I have received no other compensation and have given my honest opinion.

Giveaway Closed. Oooohhh! We have had one happy little girl around here. And, I think I’m just as tickled. The reason? Well, we got a doll bunk bed from Guidecraft’s doll furniture collection.

While I knew that Guidecraft was a company that made well crafted products, I originally thought they only created items for schools, libraries…that type of thing. When I realized they had toys and items that individuals could afford I was very excited to go look through their online catalog.

As a mom, I am very particular about our toys. I don’t want a bunch of plastic junk that just fills up the closets. I want items that are tough, useful and beautiful—toys that can stand up to wear and tear…toys that can even be passed down to my children’s children.

As soon as I saw the doll furniture collection, I was in love! I went ahead and told my daughter and we spent a few days deciding what doll item to get. We eventually chose the doll bunk bed in espresso, because Emma has two special dolls and she wanted them both to have a spot!

The bunk bed came quickly and was very well packaged. Emma ran to get her oldest brother to put it together, as she was having a hard time waiting for her Dad to get home. Looking back, I could have easily put it together, as it was very simple with easy directions to follow.

Of course, her brother was happy to do it for her, especially when he saw how excited she was.

Emma and I spent the rest of the day making the bed and unmaking the bed…dressing the dolls up and down and deciding where to put the bed. It was so beautiful, I wanted to leave it out by her bed!

I really was impressed with the quality of this doll furniture. The wood is sturdy, the color is gorgeous and even the bedding was so nice. I love the little pillows!

Anyway, we got this a while ago. And, I am pleased to report that it hasn’t lost any of its magic. Emma plays with it all the time and still puts her dolls to bed each night. She even did a video for me to show you all about it!

So do you know another little girl who would think this is magical?

You can buy the Bunk Bed, or one of the coordinating Doll Furniture pieces at Guidecraft.

Or, win it! Guidecraft has offered to giveaway another Doll Bunk Bed!! (value $120) Whoo-Hoo!!
