Scruff A Luvs by Moose Toys! Find them Scruffy, Make them Fluffy

What a cute concept! Kids get to open us this set to find a poor animal rolled up in a ball all matted and scruffy looking, then they get to wash and rinse to reveal their cute animal! THEN they get to dry their animal off and blow dry, THEN they brush them and fluff them all up! It’s so so cute. My son LOVED the whole process. Of course playing in the water was the favorite!

This is how they come!

My son was so gentle when washing, drying and brushing. Now when you wash them use a bit of soap so all of the hard residue will come off. Then rise thoroughly at least once, but two or 3 times would be better!

It was so cute to watch. We  did speed up the drying process and dried him in the dryer on a low setting for about 30 mins. After the drying cycle was finished we were able to brush him smooth!

Find us Scruffy, Make us Fluffy

Rescue your poor little Scruff-a-Luv and transform them from scruffy to fluffy. Simply wash, dry, groom and reveal if you’ve adopted a dog, cat or rabbit!

Wash your Scruff-a-Luv

Give your Scruff-a-Luv a nice bath to wash out its matted fur. Wash in a sink or large bowl of lukewarm water and, once washed, rinse off in clean water at least once.

Reveal and dry your Scruff-a-Luv

What pet have you rescued? Is it a dog? A cat? A rabbit?

Once you’ve washed and revealed your Scruff-a-Luv, make them warm and dry by drying them thoroughly with a large towel, followed by drying with a hair dryer – just like in a pet salon! Make sure you use a warm setting with adult supervision.

Groom and love your Scruff-a-Luv

Treat your pet to a styling session and make them look and feel gorgeous by brushing them and adding their special hair clip. Once they’re looking fluffy and beautiful, it’s time to give them a name, put their collar on and fill in their adoption certificate!

Finished! Kitty is so so cute and fluffy!

These range in price from $10 – $30. They are available on Amazon, Target & Walmart.

They are on sale at Target right now for around $17, Amazon’s prices are all over the place. Some are $10 but you won’t get them in time for Christmas. So I’m thinking Target is your best bet, PLUS they have free shipping right now!

BIG Thank you to Moose Toys for sending us one! This was SUCH a fun process!

Wave 2 Poopsie Unicorn Surprise. HACK to find which one you want!

These unicorns! Oh my goodness! They are the cutest!

MGA Entertainment makes these AND the LOL Surprise dolls. This company definitely knows what it’s doing!

Now, I have never tried the slime making part with these unicorns. I have heard that it’s horrible though and doesn’t work.. BUT you can always make the slime like you do in the smaller Poopsie packs… so keep that in mind!

I honestly think for the $50 though that these are worth it. They are a really good size and come with a lot extras. The small poopsie packs make just one slime, these make 4 PLUS you get the super incredible magical looking unicorn doll ha!

Word Mine, A free family game to play on Alexa by Sensible Objects!

If it’s free.. it’s for me!! Right?? Especially something everyone can enjoy!

Word mine is a fun puzzle solving word game by Sensible Objects. It’s part of their Voice Originals line of games. Smart games for smart speakers!

word-mine-logo-large-min

 

Sensible Object, an award winning London-based game studio, introduces Word Mine, their newest gaming development in the line of Voice Originals games, which utilize the power of smart voice technology to create an unparalleled play experience. In Word Mine, people of planet Earth have used and discarded all their words, leaving them buried in the ground. Play Word Mine as an explorer on a mission to piece together the forgotten words of the world. You must master the mine by thinking fast and solving the anagrams to bring words back into the world!

Alexa will guide you through Word Mine and help you navigate the game as she looks out for your safety and helps you read the letters, but it’s up to you to solve the word puzzle in time before the mine collapses in on you. Every level uncovers new letters, and it’s up to you to use your lexical prowess to get to the bottom of the mine and collect coins for the words you create. Also, you can trade these coins for helpful items from the shopkeeper, to use on further expeditions in the future. The deeper you mine the harder the anagrams get, allowing you to test and expand your vocabulary while having fun.

To play Word Mine, activate the free Skill from the Alexa app and then say “Alexa, let’s play Word Mine.” Then, enjoy the game as followed:

● As you enter the mine, you are presented with a set of 3 letters, and asked to make a word that uses all 3 letters. The clock is ticking though, you have 90 seconds to crack the anagram!

● Get the word correct and you can head further into the mine. The deeper you go the harder the anagrams get. Keep digging until you are unable to make a new word.

● Run out of time and you trigger a collapse and have to leave the mine, but you get to keep all the words you found that day.

● After leaving the mine, you will meet a shopkeeper who needs the words you mine to help people use words all over the world. The shopkeeper will offer you a payment of coins in exchange for the words you have taken from the mine to help you in future mining exhibitions.

● Return tomorrow for a new word puzzle every day.
Free to enable and play, Word Mine is available now on the Amazon Alexa store.

Thank you Sensible Games for introducing us to some fun free games! They offer more games as well, check out their website!

 

We had a lot of fun playing this game, you do have to wait the next day to play the next level, but it’s something to look forward to the next day!

Zieke is learning his letter and spelling, so this was great for him. He was so tickled when he recognized the letters. Even if you have younger kids, you can solve the word and then they can repeat the word to Alexa. Fun for the whole family!

This is definitely something to check out!

Sneak in those veggies with Sneakz Organic! Protein powder for kids!

Working from home and being able to do YouTube have been a dream come true and a complete blessing.. but.. sometimes I get so busy that other things get pushed aside. Like some healthier eating habits..

When asked to review this, I was super excited! Not only I, but the boys need those extra nutrients and probiotics, especially during the colder seasons.

chocolate.sneakz.vegan.powder_grande

This Sneakz Organic protein powder is chocolate flavored. We tried it in some milk, but it wasn’t favored by the boys that way. So then we tried whipping it up in some milk & ice, it was better but not something the boys enjoyed. SO.. I tried it in some pancakes.. oh my goodness.. I was SO surprised! It actually enhanced the pancake flavor! My middle son, LJ, ate 2 whole pancakes and asked for more… with out the syrup might I add..!!

I can’t wait to try this in some more foods, maybe some muffin next? I still want to try this in a yogurt smoothie, I think it would be great with some greek yogurt, milk and maybe a banana!

Sneakz Vegan Protein Mix provides 14 grams of protein, probiotics, 10 essential amino acids and ½ serving of daily vegetables. Simple and clean ingredients means nothing is artificial – no GMOs, no antibiotics, no synthetic hormones or artificial colors. Available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry.

To find out more information you can check them out on their website. They have easy recipes ideas and you can also purchase it directly from their site. It retails for $21.00.

Here’s more on the chocolate powder:

INGREDIENTS

Organic veggie blend (Pea protein, Carrot, Cauliflower, Beet, Sweet potato, Spinach), Organic cane sugar, Organic flavors, Organic alkalized cocoa, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086, Sea salt.

Hypoallergenic Pea Protein with Half Serving of Veggies

DETAILS

Sneakz Organic Vegan Protein Powder and Drink Mix is mindfully formulated with today’s active child in mind. It’s a great source of whole food nutrition from vegetables and non-dairy pea protein for children or anyone who feels the need to add that extra boost to their diet. Using the latest research, we’ve created the perfect blend of phytonutrient dense whole foods to support a healthy on-the-go lifestyle.

By adding beets, spinach, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, peas, and carrots, we are able to fit in a full ½ serving of vegetables per scoop and 14 grams of protein. Each scoop contains all 10 essential amino acids, fiber, and at least 500 million CFUs of probiotics.

We had fun with this and did a little fun video! Even dolls need some protein 😉

The Original Super Cool Slime & more by Kangaroo Manufacturing!

Need a super fun stocking stuffer for your kids? Look no further! Check out these slimes by Kangaroo Manufacturing! There is a slime type for everyone! There are glow in the dark slimes, Jurassic World slimes, unicorn poop slimes and more!

IMG_9758

These slimes are great, not only are they super colorful, but they are super easy to clean up! Which is VERY important when it comes to slime! I was SUPER happy with this slime, if only all slimes were like these!

I loved the unicorn poop, Aaron really seemed fascinated with the glow in the dark slime!

Now the kit, oh em gee..super easy AND it comes with storage containers for the slime. The boys and I had a great time making it. I loved the simplicity.

unnamed

Kids and teens go crazy over the tactile goo that’s not quite a solid but definitely not a liquid. Original Super Cool Slime® by parent company Kangaroo Manufacturing has expanded its collection with the hottest trends in the toy world – unicorns, emojis and (ahem) poop.

Emoji Poop Slime and Glow In The Dark Slime, $4.95 each, make terrific stocking stuffers, dreidel game or classroom Secret Santa gifts. Likewise, Unicorn Poop Slime appeals to the daintiest kids on your list. Jurassic World Slime in Indoraptor black or T. Rex Cryptogenic green guarantee a dino-good time of hands-on fun.

Each themed glop comes in an appealing container that resembles a chemistry beaker. Tilt it, pour it and let the squishing begin. Surprise each recipient on your list with a little science lesson. Tell them to enjoy their non-Newtonian fluid! Then watch them “Google” the chemistry lesson. Kids already familiar with the slow drip of ketchup or honey will recognize the same properties in gooey slime. 

If there’s a budding scientist in the house, consider The Original Super Cool Slime Lab. The boxed kit boasts 18 pieces, including measuring cups, mixing sticks and a slime activator that results in a jar of glitter slime, glow in the dark and multi-color slime. Now that’s super cool!

Each slime retails for around $6 and the kit for about $13. They can be found online (like Amazon) and at craft, party and specialty stores like TJ Max, Party City, Hobby Lobby & more.

Check out our video review above to see each slime!

Cozy Wings by Jay @ Play! Nap, wrap and flap around!

Cozy Wings! These things are so cool! They are super soft and so much fun!

We were given the Frozen and Buzz Light-year ones to review. They have slits for your arms to go into and an elastic loop that wraps around your finger. Kids will then look like they are flapping around when they move their arms!

There are other characters like Spider-man and JoJo! Also they have the classic designs as well. You can check those out on their web site.

IMG_9406

These come in just one size. They were big on Aaron, but he is only 2, almost 3. I would say they would fit more of a 5 year old. He loved wrapping up it in all the same though!

IMG_9400

He wanted me to lay down with him like he was! Ha!

IMG_9396

Haha.. I asked him to stay still for a picture and this is what he did, well.. I did need a pic of the back of it, but not necessarily of him laying on the floor haha!

It’s worked out though! You can see just how cute it is in this picture!

These retail for right around $15. I only see Target offering these characters right now.

Wouldn’t these make a great addition to a Christmas Eve box? We usually do one with Christmas PJs, snacks and a Christmas movie for the boys.. but adding this would take that up a notch!
