Hog wild Shield Popper #Review donnahup jayden

Ultimate Attack and Defend Foam Ball Shooter

Gravity-fed auto load, includes six soft foam balls that fire over 40 feet through the shield–that’s right, through the shield! Pull the soft foam hammer back, take aim and let go! Clear shield protects you from in-coming fire!

Hog wild Shield Popper 2

The Hog Wild Atomic Shield Popper that lets you protect yourself while shooting. The is great when you are in wars in the backyard because you can pop up to shoot someone and protect your face or chest.  It has a sweet rapid fire that I really like.  There is nothing that I do not like about this. I think it is easy for all ages. Even my little sister (age 6) liked it.  I think Moms should buy these for their kids because they are so much fun!

Win a Family Night Game Night prize pack

 

family game night button official

Did you know that it’s “Screen Free”  week? There’s nothing wrong with using electronics, I mean I work in social media! The point is that we need to spend time with our families. I see it all too much, a family at a restaurant and everyone is on their phone. We have a simple rule, no phones at the table. With all of the electronics that our kids are exposed to today, it is sometimes rare to have a night when the television, tablets, computers and cell phones are turned off and the sole focus is on family. So, in order to celebrate spending more time with your family, I have an amazing Family Night Game Night prize pack for you!!

Winning Moves Games helps us reminisce about the times when we had to be more creative with their wide range of game choices, including classic games like Trouble, Twister, Yahtzee, Sorry and more.

Winning Moves Games has a close relationship with Hasbro, which is the name I think of when I am looking for games. They also make and market their own games, including well-known titles like Scattergories, Parcheesi, Royal Edition, Classic Monopoly and more.

Be sure to check out their website, Facebook and Twitter page for the latest updates, giveaways and more!

One lucky reader will win an awesome Family Game Night prize package from Winning Moves Games, which will include the Splash Cards sets, Classic Twister, Classic Trouble and Jenga Throw ‘N Go. This giveaway will end on 5/19 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Please enter on the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

Kanoodle® Genius Game Review

 

*I received Kanoodle and Kanoodle Genius to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

kanoodle 1

Based in Southern California, Educational Insights, is the manufacturer of playful products with serious educational value, including subject-specific classroom products, teacher resources, educational toys, and games. Our products are designed by seasoned educators and parents who know that, first and foremost, learning must be fun.

kanoodle 6

We love games around here and playing games.  We were sent both Kanoodle® and Kanoodle® Genius to try out.

kanoodle 3

 

Use your noodle to solve building puzzles and challenge spatial reasoning skills.

  • Features colorful, connected beads that puzzlers use to create over 100 brain-building designs
  • Provides tricky 2-D rectangular and mind-boggling 3-D pyramid building challenges at multiple levels of difficulty
  • Stores all pieces inside portable, pocket-size case for easy cleanup and play anywhere
  • Includes 12 puzzle pieces and 48-page illustrated puzzle book
  • For 1 player
  • Grades 2+

kanoodle 2

 

If you’ve mastered Kanoodle, it’s time for Kanoodle Genius! Pick a puzzle from the book, set up the challenge, and place the remaining pieces to solve 200 more mind-bending puzzles. Perfectly portable for brain-building on the go. 

  • Develops spatial reasoning skills

There is not much difference between these two games. The only difference, I think is that the Kanoodle Genius is a little harder.

kanoodle 5

 

They come with a little booklet inside that help you solve problems. Now some of the problems are hard,but fun!!! I like this game a lot because it works your mind,and it is so fun!!!

*I received tickets to a Harlem Globetrotters game to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

Ryan and Logan

 

We have some HUGE basketball fans in the family and since it was Logan’s cousin Ryan’s birthday we celebrated at a Harlem Globetrotter’s game!

IMG_0521

Ryan, me, and Logan

 

The boys were so excited and even got some basketballs for the game. If you have never been to a Harlem Globetrotters game you need to go. It is more than just a basketball game, it’s an amazing show!

Create lasting family memories with the Harlem Globetrotters. Hilarious antics & amazing basketball skills will entertain the whole family.

IMG_0555

Some of the “crazy antics”

We had the BEST time!! The boys still can’t stop talking about it. They loved how cool the tricks were and all the comedy! They even learned how to do the YMCA! =)

IMG_0590

The boys with Big Easy

They loved that they could go down and meet the players and get pics with them. Two of the players gave them their headbands right off their head!

IMG_0583

Getting a Harlem Globetrotter headband!

Logan has been wearing it all day today! It is his prized possession!

Of course no review would be complete with out the “many expressions” of Logan!

globetrotter Collage

 

Logan said, “They signed our balls and headbands! They had crazy dunks and they were really funny!  Then this guy threw water, pantsed them, and ripped his jersey off! They were hilarious! They were SO hilarious. Ryan was amazed. It was so fun.”  Don’t forget when reading Logan’s thoughts to read them as fast as you can with out taking a breath ;)

After the game, notice the signed basketballs

They couldn’t stop saying thank you either, all night, it was so cute, that had a REALLY good time.

Hasbro New Games – Review

 

*I received Monopoly Jr, Disney Pop Princesses, and Play Doh Cake Sweet Shoppe to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

I’m  thrilled to share the latest product updates and highlights from Hasbro with you as we enter an exciting new year! With just a few clicks below, you’ll find everything you need to kick off 2014 with the whole family!
 
Can you believe we’re coming to the end of February already?! I can seriously remember sitting in the 6th grade hallway watching the high school seniors thinking “I will never make it to a senior, it’s soooo far away”. Now, I can’t believe I graduated almost 18 years ago!  Time does fly by super fast especially the more you age. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. One of the things we love to do is play games! Here are 3 brand new games from Hasbro you should check out!
Right now our favorite is Monopoly Jr.  In fact, I do child care for kids ages 8 to 13 and this is the most requested game.  It is a much simpler version of the standard Monopoly.  There are only $1M bills which makes it easier for the kids.  I said it’s 1 Monopoly dollar but kids insist it stands for $1 million.  Also, rather than trying to remember the property you buy you get little pieces that match your playing piece (car, ship, cat, or dog) so you can mark your property.  The kids love it.
It’s the first Monopoly game for kids, where they earn money the fun way! This Monopoly Junior game is just like the classic game, but it’s designed for younger players: fast, simple, and full of surprises. Kids will learn how to pass Go, buy fun properties like an ice cream parlor, and collect rent while single banknotes keep the transactions fast and easy. When one player runs out of money, the one with the most money wins! This fast-trading property game will lead to hours of fun for budding entrepreneurs!
Includes gameboard, 4 tokens, 20 Chance cards, 48 Sold signs, 90 x M1 banknotes, 4 Who’s Your Token? character cards, and 1 die.
  • Fast-trading Monopoly Junior game is for younger players
  • Game is like the classic Monopoly game but easier for kids
  • Adorable character tokens
  • Properties are fun places like an ice cream parlor and a skate park
  • Single banknotes keep the transactions quick and easy
  • Ages 5 and up
  • For 2 to 4 players

disney pop up

 

Another fun one is the Disney Princess Pop-Up Magic Castle Game. Kels and Lil really love Disney princesses. I can’t blame them, I do too, this is a fun one we can play together. The boys have zero interest in it unless it’s to aggravate the girls.
Join your favorite Disney Princesses on a magical journey in this Pop-Up Magic Castle game! The gameboard has a beautiful castle for imagining a whole world of Disney adventures. You can play the game as Aurora, Snow White, Belle or Ariel, and move along the path with spins of the spinner. Connect the board to other Pop-Up Magic games (other games sold separately) for a longer path and even more magic. Friend tokens can help you move even farther down the path, and if you reach the enchanted Finish stone on the board, you win!
Includes gameboard, 4 Disney Princess characters, spinner, 12 friend tokens, gameboard connector and instructions.

  • Pop-Up Magic Castle game has a gameboard with a pop-up castle
  • You can play as Aurora, Snow White, Belle or Ariel
  • Spin the spinner to see how far down the path you can move
  • Reach the enchanted Finish stone first to win
  • Gameboard connects to other Pop-Up Magic gameboards (other games sold separately)
  • Ages 3 and up

playdoh 2

 

They all love the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Double Desserts.  We always have a fun time when we play with Play-Doh!  This is a fun one when they have a day off of school or a weekend because they spend a lot of time when they’re playing with it.
Be a pastry chef with your own toy oven and Play-Doh ice cream freezer
Create colorful Play-Doh cakes, then top them off with a scoop of pretend ice cream
You’ll really hear a ding when your Play-Doh cake is finished
Plus Up Your Creations with 2 cans of Play-Doh Plus frosting
Shape a pretend cupcake, pie, or cookie, then decorate and share
Set includes four three-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound, CAKE MAKIN’ STATION tool and other fun accessories.
Make sure to check out Hasbro’s new and classic games and spend some time with your family!

Jenga Tetris Review

 

*I received Jenga Tetris to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

Jenga Tetris hi-res

Two famous brands join up for a modern twist on the stacking game you know and love. Build the Jenga tower using colorful Tetris blocks that add flare and fun to this familiar game. Get ready for laughs and surprises as you take turns pulling out a Tetris-shaped block and balancing it on top without making the stack crash! This game is easy to learn and can be played with a group or by yourself. But watch out! The Jenga Tetris game is so much fun it can be habit forming!

Jenga Tetris is such a fun game!  We had a great time playing it for family game night.  Jayden (age 10) really loved it. He’s into both Tetris and Jenga so he was delighted to have the mesh of the two games.  Lily (age 5) did have a hard time. She didn’t get too frustrated and I think I’ll actually be playing it more often because I can tell she’s learning things by trying to put the shapes together and where they fit.

It’s a really fun game. You should totally try it out at your next family game night!
