Reindeer In Here, A Christmas friend from Santa!

Christmas traditions.. I love them! I love making new ones as well, especially when it comes to making them with my family.

This is an alternative to the Elf On A Shelf (which personally, we have never done). The stress of having to change the location of the elf is no more! Ha!

With Reindeer In Here, Santa brings a reindeer to every child on the first day of December. He sends them a friend so that he can find out the wishes of each child and of course to see if they have been good. Oh and your child gets to name their reindeer, how fun is that?!

On Christmas Eve, Santa will bring all the children Christmas gifts in exchange for their reindeer friend, until next December of course, when their Reindeer Christmas friend comes back!

Your child will adore this soft plush reindeer and will enjoy all of the adventures they will have all through December! Reindeer In Here also received The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval!

New Hatchimals Hatchibabies! Will you hatch a boy or a girl?

We finally got our hands on one! These things were so hot last year and I bet these new ones will be again this year as well!

These all new ones have 5 surprises and you will either hatch a boy or girl. We have never opened one before, so this was super exciting!

The whole process takes about 30 mins. Kids will have to nurture the egg in order for it to hatch. You have to rock it, tap it, rub it.. etc. and there will be colors you see coming from the egg that will let you know how the hatchibaby is feeling. It comes with a sheet that lists what the colors mean and what to do.. either rocking it, rubbing it, etc.

Once hatched, the hatchibaby has other features and interactions. Like: you can hold its feet and say something and it will repeat! (We had trouble with this feature for some reason)

IMG_7158

We hatched a boy! There was a plastic tube at the bottom of the egg that you twist off and a little paper comes out, it said Hatchiboy! Super cute. I love how it hatches out.

All in all this was a super cute toy, but I personally think at $60 it’s a bit over priced. My boys have yet to play with it the day after he hatched out, but all kids are different. There are many ways to interact with the hatchibaby once they hatched, like singing and damcing, I don’t think the previous ones did much interacting. Ours came with a bottle, brush, rattle and a few other accessories.

I’m sure this will be a super hot toy for Christmas!

You can purchase these at Walmart, Target and other large retailers. Even on Amazon.

Diggin Dino Bones puzzle game for kids by Continuum Games!

I just love games, they bring families closer with no screen time involved. So when I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing this game, I couldn’t pass it up.. and to top it off.. this game is super simply, which is a must for kids games!

IMG_6929

Love how cute and friendly the dinosaurs look! The box itself is super compelling!

IMG_6939

You can play this game with 2, 3 or 4 players! Start by laying out all of the pieces on the board. The youngest player goes first. Pick a piece from the pile, if you get a dino piece, keep it and keep trying to get those pieces to build your whole dino (on your next turn)!

There are also other cards you might get, like another dino (the back ground will be in a different color). If you get these turn these over so no one can see! Another player is aloud to skip “digging for dinos” and instead can choose to try their luck at someone else’s turned over cards! First one to piece their entire dino together, wins!

There are so many learning aspects in this game like, learning colors, learning dinosaur names, learning how to solve and piece something together, as well as learning how to take turns!

This game is for ages 4+ and would make a great Christmas gift! You can purchase this awesome game here:

Max Flex RC glow in the dark racers by Skullduggery!

Cars… a classic toy.. am I right??

Well this set is anything but classic, but in a good way of course! This set sure steps it up!

Skullduggery, the mind behind this madness, has launched an RC racing set. Not only does the track and cars glow in the dark, but the track is flexible for endless play and set ups!

MaxFlex300UpdatedBox030218_Small__40275.1530141207.500.500

My 5 year old had this set up going so many different ways, it was awesome! My boys tend to get really frustrated if something is hard or challenging to put together, so this was really an easy set for them to figure out. The tracks also have connectors so they can connect to just about any other brand of track, which is super super cool!

Over 25ft of track and two RC cars with controllers for each. These things REALLY zoom, I was shocked!

Each controller takes 4 AA batteries and there is a charging cord on top of the controller so you can charge the rc cars. You can also control the speed on the controllers, either pull down hard to zoom super fast around the track, or tap lightly and just sit back and enjoy the slow paced type of racing! Ha!

This awesome set retails for $99.00 and can be found on their website. They also have other RC sets as well! You can check them out here.

You should check out our full video review to see this set in action:
