Samples sent for feature

Your child has asked for a sleepover and you know it is going to be a long night for you. They will stay up late and make plenty of noise long into the evening hours. When we have sleepovers I choose a quiet time of about 9pm-lay out blankets, popcorn and water bottles, put on a movie and set a board game or two out. It keeps them active but while still sitting and winding down. Endless games has 2 sleepover party board games that are a blast for such nights.

Sleepover Party Game

When the evening hits and you have a house of kids or even one child who is sleeping over it can be hard to try and get them settled down for the night They are excited to be with each other and you need them to settle down so you can get your own sleep. Pulling out a game followed by a fun and new movie is the perfect combination to wind them down. The Sleepover Party Game offers 200 different stunts, performances and activities. The card you are dealt as you spin for an action on the spin board will have them active, but in a controlled way in their spot they are sitting. Cards like making funny sounds or pretend you have brain freeze. It is hilarious to watch these actions play out and such a blast for the kids!
Ages 7+, 2-4 players

Camera Roll

Camera Roll requires access to your device or camera photos. It is simple, but a lot of fun and laughs. There will be random topics that may be about embarrassing moments or travel and more and everyone playing has 30 seconds to find a photo that best fits that topic card. What a fun way to share and enjoy those photos deep in your phone and bring them into play.
Ages 12+ and 2+ players

Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Playster Media Subscriptions

Chances are you use your devices to listen to music, read books and even watch movies. Perhaps everyone does the same-even the kids. Keeping track of everyone’s favorite stories and genres can be difficult especially if you use multiple devices. This is a unique gift idea that is great for the entire family. It is a subscription to Playster.

Playster offers the ability to create multiple profiles for members of your family. Within each profile you can save different media sources such as books, music, audiobooks, games and movies. Browsing these sources is easy as you can use the search bar by subject or title keywords or just browse by genre. For my son, I always browse the Kids and Family genre for each media activity. Within there I find stories, songs and games that are age-appropriate for him. Below are some examples of the Kids and Family genre choices…

OgoDisk RAQ Outdoor Play #HolidayGiftGuide

Sample sent for feature. Post may contain affiliate links

OgoSport-Logo

This year we bought a toy hauler for ATV riding but also to do standard RV camping. I had spent the spring buying stuff and stocking it for the summer. I had thought that I had all we needed until the first camping trip that my son invited a friend along with. They got bored fast. I did not have enough outdoor fun packed in the RV. At home when we have groups of kids like at the holidays and celebrations, I have a deck box full of fun outdoor play. Gifting outdoor play for the holidays will help you tremendously when they want to get outside for any reason or on road trips and need entertainment available.

  ogosport-ogodisk-parenting-healthy

OgoSport has products that both encourage outdoor and indoor play. The OgoDisk RAQ is an outdoor toy and so much fun. It comes with 2 paddles and a Flux ball. The paddles have large handles that are easy for any hand to grip and adds some extra power to your swing. It has a sort of trampoline-like bounce to it when in contact with a ball. The Flux Balls have removable black tails so it’s up to you whether you want them on or not.

New Fun and Educational Games from Blue Orange Games

Sample sent for feature

BOR

In this house we are huge Blue Orange fans. We have educational games like the Super Genius learning cards and fun story-telling games like Tell Tales. I love educational games that are fun and engaging. Many times we have so much fun we forget we are learning in the moment. Games have been a family tradition since the oldest was young. In game play I really see how progressed the boys get. As they learn to read, our game options widen. Then as they learn more progressive math, we can jump again to different levels of play and challenge.

There are 10 new games from Blue Orange and more are coming real soon. I had the pleasure of digging into 2 of them, Gigamons and Top That. Gigamons combines the game of Memory with what feels like a little Pokemon. You are collecting Elemons and when you match 2 that starts you off on an evolve process and then at 3 of the same Elemon’s you collect, you summon a corresponding Gigamon. My son is 8 and enamored by this game.

Top That is a game of quick-thinking and strategy. A play is made on the same card by all players. Each player has the same tokens-hat, red and orange cups, coin and a rabbit. The card will show these tokens in color or some may be grey. The player to finish the card puzzle first wins. The tokens in color on the card must be visible in the stack and any grey tokens must be included but hidden (like under the cups or in the hat). This will surely enhance problem solving skills with speed as the main factor.
