Little Bits Electronic Music Inventor Kit, STEAM Set for kids!

The set isn’t just one set! It’s one that can be made into different things! Create this guitar, then move onto something more! Add more bits or add another kit! Invent a whole new something!

Creative kids build and customize a rockin’ synth guitar using littleBits electronic building blocks, then transform it into new electronic instruments of their own!

Learn while you play.
Kids are born playing, and we want to help them extend that to a lifetime of hands-on exploration, curiosity, and imagination. littleBits puts invention at the heart of learning through play. We want kids to walk away from playtime having discovered something they didn’t know before.

Play while you learn.
Rather than memorizing worksheets and science formulas, we need to make learning more fun, engaging, and relevant to today’s kids. The world is changing dramatically around us, but the way we teach our kids is generally the same. littleBits helps kids learn by doing, by trial and error, and not just by textbooks.

Look at all of the “bits”! The guitar frame pieces aren’t shown, but are made of some sturdy stuff! Once built, this guitar really holds up well! I was super surprised!

No glue or mess! The pieces fold, bend and the tabs stay right in place. The “bits” are also magnetic, so they just click in together! Soooo sooo cool! I am so in love with these!

They have smaller sets too, like a night light and a bubble blower, they can also be made into something else, 2 inventions in one kit! I’m going to get my boys those sets for Christmas since they are a bit younger.

I LOVE how you can create one thing, then create something else, THEN add even more “bits” or kits to create your own invention! It gets even cooler.. You can submit your invention on the Little Bit’s Invent App! HOW COOL IS THAT!!! I would have literally FREAKED out for these if they were around when I was a kid!

For more info about Little Bits and ALL of the kits they have to offer visit their site.

You can also find this and other sets on Amazon. This set normally retails for $100, but it is on SALE FOR $70! Better grab it now! Sale ends soon! Their other sets are on sale as well like the Avengers kit, retails for $150 on sale for $100!

This would be perfect for any kid really! Keeping in the mind the 8+. I just love STEM (STEAM) kits!

Paw Patrol Mighty Pups Promo From Spin Master! New Paw Patrol Mighty Pups Toys & Movie!

Spin Master has been so good to us! I love getting things that you don’t expect. Especially something this special! It’s like a dream come true!

The all new Paw Patrol Mighty Pups movie is out along with a new line of awesome toys! The pups gain new powers to make them mighty!

We received a HUGE box with a screen at the bottom that plays the trailer to the new movie! OH EM GEE! Beyond cool!

IMG_8617

There were all kinds of goodies inside! The new movie was inside, there was also Paw Patrol Popcorn, Paw Patrol fruit snacks, cups and capes and even some of the new toys!

We really enjoyed this box! We had a movie night and ate the popcorn and fruit snacks!

Our Skye loved this box too, she even became a mighty pup and wore a cape.. for like two seconds.. ha!

IMG-8436

See! It’s jammed with goodies!

IMG_8630

He LOVES dogs.. he is definitely getting into Paw Patrol since we have been getting more of it to review. He’s favorite is Rubble!

IMG_8627

Aaron was showing our Skye the Paw Patrol Skye on the fruit snack box.. aww..

The new line of toys are really cool. They are super colorful too. We got a Rubble figurine and he glows, just like in the movie. There was also a cute Marshall plush! We also got the new Chase and his flying vehicle. It came with shooting discs and had other lunching features. From land to sky.. these pups are going to fly!!

You can find these new toys at Walmart, along with the new movie as well! Toys vary in price depending on which ones you want, the movie however, is about $15.

The movie kept my boys’ attention the whole time.. which is very rare for my boys! Ha!

Oddbods Buddies, Big Interactive Plush Toys!

These guys are so cute! Have you seen the show? So fun, love that each have a different bright color and attitude to match!

These are SOO huge! Just look at them!

IMG_8528

We got Pogo, the blue one, and Fuse, the red one! Love those names! They totally match their personality.

When two meet… they interact with each other! How FUN! They each make their own iconic sounds as well. Throw them, huge them, squeeze them and they make all kinds of noises!

Baby A really loved wrestling with them, he would hardly let me play with them! Ha! They really are super soft. Once the other two boys got home from school they all were laying all over them and just chillin! Ha! (This was after they fought over them and wrestled once more! Boys!)

Oddbods have a super fun website and a YouTube channel, plus all kids of other toys! Check out Oddbods’ website!

These are super hard to find right now! Amazon has some but for an outrageous price! I see Pogo and Bubbles right now available on Target for $40 plus free shipping! GO.. RUN… GET THEM!

 

We had so much fun doing this video! BIG thanks to Oddbods for sending us these guys! I foresee many other videos with them! We just now need to get our hands on a few more!

Cry Babies! Baby dolls that cry real tears!

Every girl loves baby dolls, right?! Actually, my boys love baby dolls!

I have heard that when kids play will baby dolls,  it helps them develop the nurturing factor which will help them in the future if/when they become a parent. I love seeing my boys rock and talk to a baby doll.

With these dolls, kids can learn to love and take care of a baby. The idea is really genius! Maybe they should take it up a notch and have the baby cry until you can figure it out what it needs, like a bottle or a diaper change..! Ha!

We were sent Bonnie! She is so cute with her big eyes, tiny hands and feet and her bear outfit! You can slip her hood off to expose the cap. Unscrew and add water, trying not to fill it all the way to the top. Use bottled or distilled water, they way the inside of the doll won’t get all yucky. Then screw the cap back on and turn the switch to the “on” position, ( ( located on her back side, underneath her outfit). Make sure to keep her pacifier in her mouth or she will start crying tears right after you turn her on.

She will then giggle and coo with her pacifier in, take it out and the tears start a flowing! She has audible cries too! Soo sweet and sad! lol

Isn’t she sooo cute? They definitely have a sweet look to them.

Check out our full video review from our other toy channel and even a DIY seat (well not really a DIY, just a little paint added on ha!) made from the box that Bonnie came in:

More information:

  • Bonnie really cries when you remove her pacifier
  • She will shout and cry until you replace her packing or rock her to calm her down
  • Each doll comes with an attached pacifier and a removable animal print onesie
  • Just add water for real tears!

You can find Bonnie on Amazon for right around $30, check out Bonnie here. There are also other ones available as well, check those other dolls out here. The price is really reasonable in my opinion.

I LOVE the animal outfits that they wear, makes them even more cute! These will definitely be a hot toy for Christmas!
