Building Toys For All Ages with Magformers Magnetic Construction Sets

If you have a young child you surely recognize these patrol pups! In the Nickelodeon line of Magformers there is the Paw Patrol 20 Piece Ready For Action Set. If your child is too young for this set aged 3 and older then Magformers has the Dolce plush line and for the older kids there are plenty of building sets aimed to challenge their creativity.

This Paw Patrol set has 14 magnetic pieces and 6 insertable character cards that can be combined in any piece for color and shape practice. These pieces really stick well as the magnet holds the characters together well for building up, down or side by side.  The magnets are Rare-Earth Neodymium for guaranteed connectivity.

It comes with a build booklet giving step-by-step instructions on building ideas to start their creative flow. Clean up is easy as they stack together and stay piled in the box or any way you wish to store.

This is the Magformers Dolce Cow for infants ages 0 months and older. There is so much happening with this toy. It comes with a ring so you can hang it from a seat, crib or stroller for play anywhere you go. It is sure to stimulate your child’s tactile and auditory senses.

The body is a soft velour with incorporated fabrics and even a teether tag. The feet crinkle, the colors are bright and there are click-clack sounds and squeaks.

These plush come in a few animal and character versions and are a great baby shower gift.

Let's Party this Summer with Palmer Candy

You have seen the R.M. Palmer Easter bunnies recently and then there are the popular R.M. Palmer Peppermint Patties and Peanut Butter Cups. But, did you know about all you can find by visiting the RM Palmer website? Let’s take a look and then I have also shared some fun candies you can get for your summer parties and BBQ’s.

R.M. Palmer sells bulk candy like the red, white and blue chocolates you see below. This is great for themed parties, weddings, corporate dinners and even crafts with candy. Have you seen my Pokemon party favors I made with R.M. Palmer bulk candies?

First of all, make sure you sign up for the R.M. Palmer newsletter from their main homepage. This is how you can get savings, hear about promotions and find new happenings. You can also browse recipes like Palmer Peanut Butter Cup Parfaits or Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patty Brownies.

Along with recipes you can find crafts using R.M. Palmer candies like a Chocolate Candy bouquet or a Shining Star Trophy for your kids sports team. Also learn what stores near you cary the candies in their store locator.

Anthony loves the Peppermint Patties and they are a great cool treat for the summer heat. Then celebrate the Fourth of July with Red, White and Blue caramel-filled chocolates like the ones I featured.

Whether you have a sports team to celebrate the end of the season with or a birthday party to throw, visit R.M. Palmer to find great candies and fun ideas!

New Sand Toys from Playmobil – Review

I have partnered with Playmobil for this feature

Playmobil wants to help get your sandbox summer ready! If you want to spend some times outside at the beach or in your garden, the kids need to be entertained and these new Playmobil sand toys will do the trick! Place the Playmobil Dump Truck and Playmobil Excavator in sand or dirt and your child can have ‘loads’ of fun time (pardon the pun).

The dump truck comes with detachable pieces for added fun. The bed as well as the two ramps and sieve can be detached and can played with individually. Use the ramps for the truck ramp or build a bridge, etc.. the creativity is endless. You can fit 2 Playmobil 1.2.3. figures in the cab.

With the Playmobil Excavator’s bucket as well as the flag and cage can be detached and also used individually to play in the sand. Us the bucket as a shovel to dig or build with. There is space in the cage for a 1.2.3 figure.

I love the bright colors and sturdy design. Both are great for outdoor and indoor play! Both retail about $24.99 each.

Visit Playmobil for more summer fun toys!

Have Fun with Pools and Poop with These New Blue Orange Games

I was sent games for feature with Blue Orange Games

Have Fun with Pools and Poop with These New Blue Orange Games

Pools and poop, but luckily not at the same time! These 2 newest games from Blue Orange games will keep the kids (and you) entertained this spring and summer. One is a game about race and accuracy while the other requires concentration and swiftness. Either game brings the skills that board games bring out so well in your child as they play and grow. Both are for ages 6+ so the older kids stay engaged (and unplugged).

Pool Party is a real hit with my son and I. It is simple, yet speed and accuracy is a must. The pool is a bit tipsy so as you race to get so many of your flip cards in you need to make sure they don’t tip out for them to count or you may be starting over.

 

The cards require a little pressure with a finger and off they fly, hopefully landing in the pool. As you really get going it is easy for one of yours to get knocked out too even before the pool tips.

The first person to successfully get all their certain amount of cards into the pool AND not have that pool tip over is the winner of that round.

Second, the game Who Did It is about getting rid of your cards quickly in attempt to not take fault for your pet being the one who pooped. This is such a hilarious game. Concentration is involved because there is an element of making sure you are not calling animals already eliminated by your opponents so you can catch them as the culprit before the blame gets placed on you. All pieces are kept in this ‘poop’ pouch and it is small and transportable for road trips and campgrounds.

More new games coming this season from Blue Orange Games include:

Happy Bunny – ages 3+

Where’s Mr. Wolf – ages 4+
