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.

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!

Fryin Flyin Donuts! The whole family will be laughing!

Maya Toys, the creators of Orbeez, has now has launched a game under the name Maya Games! Fryin Flyin Donuts! It’s super easy, but so much fun!

IMG_9062

I love the box! Looks so inviting right off the bat!

IMG_9079

I seriously had a blast with this game!

FAMILY GAME NIGHT JUST GOT EVEN BETTER! Try and catch all of your donuts in this action packed game of strategy that just might take a little bit of luck too! Be the first player to fry and fly all of your donuts into the Baker’s box and you win! This game is recommended for ages four plus, but friends and family of all ages will love Fryin’ Flyin’ Donuts!
THIS ACTION PACKED BOARD GAME COMES WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED! OK, well almost everything…you supply the 4 C alkaline batteries and we will bring the rest! Game includes 6 donuts in 2 colors, electronic fryer assembly with fan, bowl and catching rod. We almost forgot the baker! (He is included too) Light assembly is needed, and you will be flyin’ and fryin’ in under 5 minutes!
THIS FEVERISH PACED GAME WILL KEEP FAMILY GAME NIGHT FUN FOR ALL! Fryin’ Flyin’ Donuts keeps the game play action packed and lets you create your own strategy for a thrilling victory! Play with two players or play with teams! The first player/team starts off with their largest donut and tosses it in the fryer while their opponent does the same. Once you have successfully hooked your largest donut, you move on to the medium donut and then the small donut. The first player/team with all 3 donuts caught, wins! Those are the rules…but as with any game, its always fun to make your own, too!
A PERFECT GIFT! Fryin’ Flyin’ Donuts is the perfect gift for Christmas, Hanukkah / Chanukah, Easter, birthday parties, birthday gifts, graduations, back to school and many other occasions!

Dire Wolf And Sabre Tooth Fingerlings by Wowwee! A whole new friendly ferocious experience! Sneak Peak!

Well…Fingerslings did it again!!

JUST LOOK!

IMG-9200

We received a “frosty” fun box! They really do put so much work into these! So I can just imagine how much work goes into the actual products!

IMG_8931

They sent “snow”.. candy, candy, more candy, shiny snow flakes, and even some ice-cycle ornaments! It was so much fun!

IMG_8936

… and even some cool ice berg looking slime! Ekk! Baby A LOVED this slime!

Ok, so more about these awesome Untamed Fingerslings by Wowwee!

I seen the Direwolf at the TTPM Holiday Showcase and FEEL IN LOVE! Oh my! He is way to cool! I love the Sabretooth too! I didn’t even know they had these until we opened this box.

IMG-6603

IMG-6604

I was taming him! lol

There are two Sabre Tooths: Silvertooth & Bonesaw and two Dire Wolves: Midnight and Blizzard. They make over 40 sounds, they move, open their eyes and chomp their mouths! There is a tamed mode and an untamed mode!

For untamed mode, shake them or tap their noses. For tamed mode, pet them on the top of their heads and give them some love! There are so many interactive things to do with these, they are so much fun!

The Sabre Tooths can be found at Target for about $15, the Dire Wolf line won’t be released until the first of next year, so watch out for those!

Robo Wunderkind! A Coding & Robotic’s set for kids!

STEM Toys! These are becoming more and more popular and I for one, am super excited to see more and more of them! As a child plays with STEM sets, they are playing as well as learning. My boys love to learn, they are like little sponges, soaking up everything that they can… Good.. or bad..! Ha!

When asked to review this, I was beyond excited!

We were sent the Education Robotics Set.

Description:

Ready for some more? Education Kit is the perfect addition to any kids – or classroom. With the added distance sensor, the builds become more functional and versatile, allowing the young explorers to easily grasp complex coding concepts like triggers, routines and conditionals. Build with your hands, apply your imagination to create Robo’s next task and use your brain muscle to make it work. Robo Wunderkind is the perfect combo of STEAM and fun, created by educators, engineers and designers for the endless hours of engaging play.

There are projects that you can create that are listed in the apps guide or you can create something on your own! Oh course my son wanted to wing it and figure it all out on his own! He created a robot and named it LJ, after his brother! Ha! It was really sweet.

Each piece has its own function and the start up booklet explains what each piece does. There is so much to this! As the child gets to use this more and more the more they will experiment more and more with the pieces.

Robo Code_3

There are two apps that you can use with the Robo Wunderkind sets. This one is the Robo Code app. You can find and download these apps from Google Play or the App Store.

This app let’s you code your creation. You can code really simple things or advance! Like I said, as your child gets familiar with it, the more they will learn and experiment! We started out really simple!

You can do all kinds of things here, sounds, movement, speed.. so much! We are STILL learning new things!

The Robo Code app opens the world of programming for kids. With its child-friendly design and intuitive coding process, this app guides children in learning 21st-century skills in a fun and easy way. Together with Robo Wunderkind robotics kits, it makes coding and robotics child’s play. Designed for iOS, Android, and Windows. Requires a device with Bluetooth 4.0.

Robo Live_2

Ok, so this is the Robo Live app. SO SO cool! I would recommend starting out with this before the Robo Code app. This is super simple to use and your child can get familiar with all of the controls and how everything works.

You can reposition the controls, add or remove controls, add sounds, record, name and more!

The Robo Live App allows you to set up a remote control interface to control your robot in real time. Play with your robotic friends by using drag and drop functions on the app’s dashboard, and control your robots’ actions, such as driving, turning, making sounds, blinking, and other. Designed for iOS, Android, and Windows. Requires a device with Bluetooth 4.0.

They have new building blocks coming out soon! Like a camera and an IR Blaster and Receiver! They also offer a start kit and an upgrade kit.

Check out more about Robo Wunderkind on their website.

The Education Robotics set retails for $249… I know this may sound like a hefty price, but it is worth every penny! I am very honest when it comes to price when I review products. This set is true to the labeling of “Robotics”. I can honestly say I haven’t seen a set quite like this. It’s so advanced, yet something kids can use, play and learn with!

This is what is included in this set:

8 Blocks:

  • Main Block
  • Distance Sensor
  • 2x DC Motors
  • Servo Motor
  • RGB Light
  • Button
  • Connector Block

Other parts:

  • 3x Wheels
  • 6x Connectors
  • Wired Connector
  • 4x Lego™ adapters
  • Charging cable

The set even has a tool that you use to take off the connectors, which is soooo cool! It’s so easy and simple!.

It also had LEGO adapters so kids can build something with LEGOs on these adapters and then can connect it to their creation! I mean.. come one..how cool is that?? It’s really like it never ends.. there is so much to this and I know I am probably going to miss mentioning something!

You can purchase these sets directly from their website or the Robotics & Starter sets can be found on Amazon as well.

Recommended age is 6+ which is spot on in my opinion. My oldest son just turned 6 and he had no problem playing and understanding this set.

Pokemon Toys! Figurines and an interactive plush Pikachu!

Pokemon! This has been around for what seems like forever! My boys are just now getting to the age of being “into” something.. and they just love these toys!

Wicked Cool Toys sent us a HUGE box of some Pokemon toys, even the new plush Pikachu! He is so so cute! I love the voice of Pikachu! Pika Pika!

Have you heard about the new Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie coming out? There are mixed feelings about this movie, but I am super excited for it!

I bet these toys are going to be even hotter now! (Wicked Cool Toys will be launching all new toys for the the new movie in April 2019!!)

IMG_8810

LOVE the poke ball with the soft Pokemon inside! You throw it and Litton comes flying out! You can become a real Pokemon Master!! There are others to collect as well.

There are the typical figurine ones and even ones that are articulated! There is an Ash figurine that comes with Pikachu and you place Pikachu on Ash’s arm and then you can fling him off! It’s so cool!

IMG_8832

LJ loved opening all of these and finding out what Pokemon is all about.

IMG_8847

We have a very nice collection started! Love these toys!

Price ranges for each but can be found at most retailers like Walmart & Amazon.

Check out our video review above! We always have fun with our videos 😉  We may just have to do one like the real movie.. Detective Pikachu 😉

Mojimoto, talk back toys that repeat what you say!

Emoji’s! Just about anyone with a phone uses them.. and now Blue Whale has taken the Emojis idea and made them into a toy… Mojimotos!

So simple, yet so entertaining! Turn the switch to on, hold down the button on the top, wait for the beep, talk and then they repeat! So so fun! Try singing too… they will sing back! Their eyes and mouth moves too which makes it even more entertaining and funny!

IMG_8801

We got the puppy! Which we LOVE because we have a dog, so we definitely love getting anything dog/puppy related!

Look at how cute they are! There are several to collect! They have an ice cream cone, unicorn, taco and more.

My son loves back pack clips, so this is going to make a great addition! He is usually entertaining his classmates in the school pick up line with his other back pack clips. So I am sure there will be kids wanting these around our neighborhood after seeing it!

Check out all the different ones they have on their website.

These retail for around $10 and can be found at Walmart and online on Amazon.

These would be perfect as stocking stuffers or for a gift exchange!

I really want the ice cream and unicorn! I may just have to get them!
