Celebrating Easter with VTech

April 18, 2014 by  
Filed under children, giveaways, toys

With Easter just a few days away, now is the time to make sure you have those baskets stuffed with lots of candy and other goodies. And what’s better than some cool items from VTech? I know my kids love their InnoTab games and other fun toys. We recently had the opportunity to check out some of their latest releases and had a blast!

InnoTab Games

Doc McStuffins: If you’re familiar with this television show then you know how adorable this character is. Dottie aka Doc McStuffins aspires to be a doctor just like her Mom. So she does what any child would do . . . play doctor with her stuffed animals and toys. However, these are no ordinary objects . . . they magically come to life! So you can just imagine how much fun the InnoTab game version is. Here you can take pictures and decorate them with stickers and stamps, play games with the characters, read about Doc and Lambie in the ebook and even color along in the Big Book of Boo-Boos . . . all while learning about math, reading, creativity, and being healthy.

Sofia the First: We found this InnoTab game to be geared for a little older crowd since you have to navigate your way around the screen in a problem solving quest. There are also fun games, an interactive ebook and creative activities. This cartridge also allows you to take photos and decorate them with themed stickers. Kiana really liked this game since she’s a big fan of the television show. What I really liked was how the screen displayed the images in bright sharp colors. It made learning fun!

Now if you have boys then you’ll want to check out the VTech vehicles . . . perfect for Easter baskets!

Go! Go! Smart Wheels: We found this fun toy to be perfect for tiny hands. It’s light-weight and the rounded edges makes it easy to handle. When you press the windshield, the toy talks and sings short phrases and songs. We had the Bulldozer vehicle and said things like “B” is for bulldozer, Let’s clear the road, and I’m Bob, this is my Bulldozer.

Switch & Go Dinos: Remember Transformers? Well, these dinos are kind of like that but even more fun because they talk, make sounds, and even educate your child with interesting facts about their specific species. Built for small hands, these dinos turn into vehicles in just a couple of easy steps. This is very much appreciated since my girls can sometimes get frustrated when they have a hard time completing a task. We were lucky to be able to check out Fray the Ankylosaurus because we’ve never ever heard of this dino before. However, after a few clicks of the button we found out that his tail is as long as his body, he used to live in North America and his head is super hard.

So if you’re looking for last minute basket stuffers check out the various toys from Vtech! Your kids . . . and your dentist . . . will love you for it!

Reliving the Past with Netflix (Giveaway)

April 17, 2014 by  
Filed under entertainment, giveaways

There are many things about my high school years that I remember fondly . . . Senior Prom, my first crush, and being in the marching band. However, there are also a few things I’d prefer to forget like those Dove shorts, my feathered hairstyle, and the time I wore 2 different shoes to school. In any case, it’s always fun to look back and remember a more simple time.

One great way to do this is to check out Netflix’s library of oldies but goodies which can be conveniently streamed right into your living room for the entire family to enjoy. Here are some of their classic picks:

And for the little ones . . .

Our family chose to watch the Care Bears Movie. When I was younger, Care Bears were the “in” thing. I remember those cuddly plush bears with the different icons on their tummies. I liked that these bears represented happiness and good traits that we all hope our children acquire. My favorites were always Cheer Bear and Wish Bear and it was so nice to share these lovable characters with my daughters.
