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

I have partnered with Wham-O for this feature

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…..

Magnetic Travel Games from The Purple Cow

Thank you to Purple Cow for sending games for feature

Magnetic Travel Games from Purple Cow

In two weeks Anthony and I head off to Blogger Bash in NYC. At age 9, this is such a fun conference for him as he will mingle and meet many toy and children brands. It is also his first long flight. We are flying from Seattle to New York and need some entertainment for the flight. My husband cannot break from work events so it is just Anthony and I. These magnetic travel games from The Purple Cow and going to be a blast.

Magnetic Checkers

Magnetic Tic Tac Toe + 4-In-A-Row

 

Magnetic Battlefleet

Each game comes in a slim tin that snaps back together to hold the pieces. They hold very well to the boards and slide easily with your fingers for enjoyable play. The tins stay shut very well. There are even more choices than the 3 games I list above. They are all available on Amazon.

I can see us using these travel games a lot this summer from plane rides to camping and road trips. These make great hotel toys too. They are small and pack well for space saving. There are plenty of playing pieces for each game. Having entertainment is not only fun for the kids, but a piece of sanity to parents.

New Skylanders Imaginators Senseis for the Boys & Girls

I have paired up with Activision and the Skylanders Imaginators for this feature

New Skylanders Imaginators Senseis for the Boys & Girls

If you are a frequent reader then you know I have enjoyed bringing you many posts updating my readers on the Skylanders games by Activision. My son enjoys these features as he plays all of the Skylanders games from the original Spyros Adventure to the current Skylanders Imaginators and the ones in between.

In these games your child ‘becomes’ a Skylander as they fight to destroy the evil Kaos and his group who want to destroy the Skylands. Even better, your son or daughter can choose from male and female characters. There are 2 new characters just added to the Senseis, teaching the Skylnaders skills in Skylanders Imaginators, Blaster-Tron (male) and Tidepool (female).

Below, Anthony will tell you more about these 2 new Senseis an the story of how they became Skylanders and began the fight for justice.

Learning Science in a New Way with Basher Books and Toys

Sample toys sent for feature

learning science

Learning should be fun. When I was school aged, science was always my favorite subject. It was the one class where we were constantly tinkering, getting out of our seats for labs and just using our kinesthetic learning skills to experiment. One of my favorite science teachers was so wacky and loved having us up and moving. The kind of teacher who years later knows you are getting married and is thrilled to attend. Simon Basher has the same passion for teaching science in a way that is fun and engaging.

science toys

The best part is that the new Basher toys and card games to go along with his books he has been creating are here in the US at Target stores. My son is already anxious to collect more science toys in the Series 1 of characters. You know about collecting toys by series-they have levels of blind boxes or mini building block bags that are released in a series and that concept applies here too. We have Gas, Liquid, Aton, Ion and Molecule for Series 1 Basher Figureines.

periodic table

Mattel offered to join Basher Science to create these toys. The toy line includes Basher Science figurines, card games, collectable cards, play sets and experiment kits. They feature characters from Basher’s Periodic Table, Physics, Biology and Rocks and Minerals books.

chemistry book

Basher Science also has over 30 science and learning books from preschooler to older children. We have the book, Chemistry: Getting A Big Reaction. It is our nightly reading book and are about half way through it now. My son is 8 and is loving everything about the book and toys. The card games are a science twist of the games Uno and Memory. It is a great addition to the book to keep the learning going. He has not started Chemistry in school yet, but I can’t help to think Basher Science will now have him well prepared when he does as we continue to collect and play with the new toys and games.
