New and Addicting Games and Toys from Wham-O Stay 'N Play

New from Wham-O are these highly addictive Stay ‘N Play games and toys for kids and adults. By addictive, I mean that in a positive way. If game nights have become redundant these games are a must! They get you up and moving as well as competitive and a lot of fun!

Hut Hut Hoop is definitely one to bring out on game day! It is so much fun and you race to make as many balls through the hoop in this competitive game. Ether start your party off right or end it to burn off ll those game day snacks at the end of the game. Because it all fits back in the box it is very portable and sets up in under a minute.

Sharp Shooter is one of my favorites and is just as fun for adults as it is kids. It is a simple rubber band gun that comes with plenty of bands and a stack of cups and spin board. Spin to see what aim you have ton play with and try to knock the cups down better and faster than your opponents.

Below is the slingshot gun for 3D Zombie Hunt! Wear the 3D glasses it comes with for a better image on the zombie canvas while you sling velcro grip balls to the board. If they stick you collect those points.

Wham-O has many play options in the Stay ‘N Play line of toys. Anthony shows you how each of his toys and games are played in the video below.

Take a look…..

Updating Our Social Logo with DesignEvo is Easy and Free

With my son wanting to get back into reviews on his YouTube channel we have been wanting to refresh it a bit. He is not a little boy anymore (sniff sniff), so we need to make it a 10 year old’s channel and update his photo and design. Logos are always hard to design because I get carried away with color and images and can never make up my mind. We are redoing Anthony’s logo at DesignEvo. It is free to design logos and download to use. Their are paid features that offer a bit more I will show you in a moment.

Finding a design is effortless because they have so many to choose from in several categories. Here is the design we chose below that we customized. I even inserted his photo inside the logo after I downloaded it.

Here is the pricing below and other key feature:

* 3000+ professionally designed templates.
* Over one million icons available to search through.
* Hundreds of text fonts and shapes to choose from.
* Fully customizable features.

Our logo as featured on his Youtube and Instagram channels. Works well. Because I own the Premium package on this logo I can still tweak it a bit and allow the lettering to fit better or update if we ever add new social channels for his reviews, etc..


DesignEvo is an online logo maker for creating professional logos in seconds. Try it out:

New Children’s Book – The Backup Bunny

New Children's Book - The Backup Bunny

The Backup Bunny

By: Abigail Rayner

Let me start by saying one word – Precious! Anthony is 10 and he still has his ‘Bear Bear’. All kids have their favorite stuffie or blankie so this story is relatable even to the oldest child who hears this story. We even laughed a bit in parts of this book.

When Max loses his favorite toy—Bunny—his clever mom brings out the “backup bunny”—Fluffy—to save the day. Fluffy is thrilled to have the chance to play with Max, but is soon rejected by the observant child who notices that his ears are too new and perky. Can Fluffy find a way into his favorite boy’s heart?


Find the Backup Bunny on Amazon and Simon & Schuster books.

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product: Playfoam Pals Series 1

I have partnered with Educational Insights for this feature. Any thoughts are my own

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product_ Playfoam Pals Series 1

Playfoam! We know it as a hot product for kids. It is mess-free, non-toxic and never dries out. You can buy it in small quantities or larger bucket styles. Collect the colors and create play spaces that open the imagination wide open and there is no mess to clean up. They can leave it out because it will be just as pliable when they come back to it. Educational Insights just stepped your Playfoam up a level by adding a surprise toy inside.

foam blind pals

Right now Series 1 Playfoam Pals is available and in this series the toy surprise are wild animals from around the world. Not only can they use the foam inside but with a blind box style, they can collect all 12 wild animals (their Playfoam Pal).

They do not know which animal is inside until they open it up and tear open the pouch. As they collect the pals they can switch heads to make fun hybrid animals. Plus they get more Playfoam with each piece to add to their creation they are building. These are the types of learning toys you will find at Educational Insights.

We were so excited to see the sloth! OK…I was excited because sloths are my favorite animal. The 12 wild animals are so adorable and on the insert are animal facts! One of our animal facts were: A lion’s roar is so loud it can be heard up to 5 miles away.

Anthony is having fun playing, creating and learning about his animals. And I still want to take his sloth and display it at my work desk! He is too cute and his name is Speedy according to the insert-lol. Get your kids started on this adorable series at Educational Insights!
