Previous Koh’s Cares book/plush offering.

If you read my blog on a regular basis you have probably read a post (or two!) about the Kohl’s Cares program. I am a HUGE fan of Kohl’s Cares and I LOVE the products they offer.

If you are unfamiliar with Kohl’s Cares, it’s a special collection of products that Kohl’s sells year round to help raise funds for children’s health initiatives nationwide. Kohl’s gives 100% of the proceeds from these products to charity.

The Kohl’s Cares collection of products change every few months. Each product is only $5.00.

I was an avid reader growing up. I loved reading so much that I saved many of my favorite books from my childhood and passed them on to my children. Now that my kid are grown, I put all my books – as well as their favorite childhood books – in storage, awaiting the day that I can read these books to my grandchildren (and Lord willing, great-grandchildren).

What I love about the Kohl’s Cares collection is that they usually offer a book/plush combo. They often carry beloved children’s book as well as a plush toy from the book. Each are sold separately ($5 each). As a “set” ($10) they make a WONDERFUL gift. What child wouldn’t want to snuggle with a cuddly plush animal while reading (or being read to) a delightful story book.

If you have a child who is invited to birthday parties often, or plenty of nieces and nephew, I would recommend stocking up on the book/plush “sets” so that you have great gifts at a moments notice. Not only that, you are helping to raise fund for children’s charities. It’ a win-win situation.

Kohl’s Cares doesn’t only sell children’s books and plush toys – the have products for grown ups as well.

The Kohl’s Cares collection changes every few months. I keep Kohls.com bookmarked on my computer and check the site once a week to see if there are new product available. You can also check them out at you local Kohl’s store. The Kohl’s Cares products are usually found new the cash registers.

Frederick

Currently the Kohl’s Cares collection features award winning children’s books from renowned author/illustrator Leo Lionni. Lionni wrote and illustrated one of my favorite books from my childhood – Frederick. It’s a story about an adorable little gray mouse. Now I need to find a little red flower to put in his hand/paw.

When I found out that Kohl’s Cares was offering not only the book Frederick, but also a matching plush toy, I knew I had to have the set. In fact, I tend to buy all the book/plush combos whenever possible. I like decorating our bookcase with them. Because Kohl’s Cares offers new products ever few months, I get to change the book/plush combo often. Then I just rotate them throughout the year.

One set I keep out all the time – Put Me in the Zoo. I love the plush. He’s so soft!

Put-Me-in-the-Zoo

The products are only available for a limited time and once they are sold out they are gone. That is why I am quick to purchase them.

Kohl’s Cares has always been kind enough to send me free samples to review whenever new products come out (THANK YOU KOHL’S CARES!). Then I purchase all the additional products on my own with my own money.

The book is wonderful and the plush is SO SOFT and cuddly!

The book is wonderful and the plush is SO SOFT and cuddly!

The books are hardcover books with dust jackets. If you go to any bookstore you’ll end up paying MORE than $5 for the same book.

The plush animals are also a high quality. I have many of them and they are made exceptionally well. Some might think a $5 plush toy would be made poorly. That is not the case at all. They are made very well.

Here are the items currently available through the Kohl’s Cares program.

Kohl's Cares Collection

  • Frederick book and mouse soft toy
  • A Color of His Own book and chameleon soft toy
  • It’s Mine! Book and frog soft toy
  • Cornelius book and crocodile soft toy
  • Swimmy book
  • Tote bag
  • 101 Kids Activities book

I was sent A Color of His Own, chameleon plush toy, It’s Mine! book and plush frog, tote bag and 101 Kids Activities book. I purchased the book Frederick and plush, as well as Cornelius book and plush on my own.

I work with children from 1st – 7th grade. The 101 Kids Activities book is awesome! It’s filled with great ideas that I can easily utilize with the children that I work with. Most of the activities use products that are found around most homes and/or classrooms. It’s a great book to have on hand for a cold, winter day or rainy days.

Too Cute!

Too Cute!

I cannot say enough about the plush toys. I love them! They are absolutely adorable! I’m a big kid at heart and I adore these sweet plush toys.

Sometimes I donate the products where I work. Other times I keep them for myself because they are just too cute to part with.

Decorate for the holidays – or every day – with Fun Chalk Markers

 

Chalk

I love to surprise my family members with secret messages and little goodies tucked away inside their lunch bag, backpack or any place where they wouldn’t expect it.

I have been known to write on the bathroom mirror in lipstick. I do it to wish family members a “Happy Birthday” or just to tell my husband that I love him. I have to use lipstick because I don’t want to use something that could potentially stain the mirror, or worse yet, not come off at all.

Are you familiar with chalk markers? They look like regular markers but instead of ink they are filled with liquid chalk that dries instantly on the surface. The final result looks and feels like like chalk – and it even washes away like chalk – except with the precision of a marker.

Here is an example of something I made at my previous job using chalk markers.

Chalk-Ink

You can’t tell from this photo but I used a pencil eraser to make veins in the leaves.

I could have never had done with with regular chalk. Regular chalk is very messy to use.

Fun Chalk Markers are the most versatile markers and can be used on any non-porous surface (ex. plastic, ceramics, chalkboards, whiteboards, glass, mirrors).

You don’t have to work in a classroom or have access to a chalkboard to enjoy Fun Chalk Markers. You can use them for craft projects, around the home and more.

Here are some ideas of how to use Fun Chalk Markers:

  • perfect for scrapbooking
  • for a variety of arts and crafts
  • create chalkboard signs that pop with color
  • decorate the windows in your home and car for special occasions
  • add a personal touch to bike helmets
  • organize your storage bins, since you can erase the ink from plastic when you decide to use the bin for something else
  • write inspirational messages to yourself and family members on mirrors and windows
  • write the names of your guests on their wine glasses
  • help motivate you to exercise by writing your routine on a mirror
  • write grocery lists or meal plans on the fridge with Fun Chalk
  • use them to add a touch of color to your hair for fun occasions
  • teachers love using Fun Chalk in their classrooms because they only need one marker to write on their chalkboard, whiteboard, glass windows and doors (no dust like traditional chalk)

Best o all they are non-toxic, odor-free, washable and eco-friendly.

These are so easy to wash off. Even when they are 100% dry and they appear permanent – they are not. Simply take a little water on a paper towel and wipe it clean. Since they are chalk you can also just brush it off with your hand or a chalk eraser.

I’ve used these on the bathroom mirror (to leave messages for family members), on our sliding glass door to decorate for the holiday/season and I even used them on stone (similar to a chalkboard) drink coasters to decorate for the holiday/season. Currently they are decorated for Christmas. The next time we’ll have guests over for a dinner party will be Easter, so I’ll just wash the coasters off and decorate them with flowers and/or bunnies for Easter when the time comes.

Coaster

Unlike traditional chalk, Fun Chalk markers are easier to handle. You can make fine lines and dots with Fun Chalk which is not easy to do with regular chalk. Fun Chalk colors are also move vibrant. They look and feel like markers. It’s hard to believe they are really chalk.

Here are some other examples if the fun things you can do with Fun Chalk (all photos copyrighted to Fun Chalk and are found on the brand’s Instagram page – @FunChalk). You can see each photo on Instagram just by clicking the photo.

Fun Chalk Chalkboard

Fun Chalk Mirror

Fun Chalk Window

Fun Chalk Comparison

I especially love the above photo because it shows you the tremendous difference between regular chalk and Fun Chalk. Once you use Fun Chalk Markers how can you ever go back to regular chalk? I sure can’t.

My doodles and text are not as elaborate or nice as the ones from the Fun Chalk Instagram page. I would love to make the holiday lights on our windows. I also love the mirror idea.

Speaking of ideas, you can see more wonderful things created with Fun Chalk Markers on their Facebook page.

You can use these chalks in a variety of ways. They will stay “as is” until you remove them or they accidentally get wet or removed. Another words, the little red hearts I drew on the bathroom mirror for my husband could stay there indefinitely or until the next time I clean the mirrors.

Fun Chalk Markers are exactly that – FUN! Every home should have a set (or two). They come in a variety of colors. You never know when you might need them.

Fun Chalk is sold on Amazon.com from Gold Star Collections.

You can also check out the Gold Star Collections website for more information about Fun Chalk Markers at GoldStarSelections.com.

Have you used Fun Chalk Markers before? If so, what have you made with them?

If you have never tried Fun Chalk Markers, why or why wouldn’t you want to try them out? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from my readers.

Show team pride with “cornhole” games from Victory Tailgate

 

Christmas gift for my husband two years ago.

Christmas gift for my husband two years ago.

We might have a backyard, but that doesn’t stop my family from wanting to get outside and enjoy games and activities. Whether it was coloring with sidewalk chalk (when my kid were little) to tossing a ball around, riding scooters or shooting a game of hoops – we always looked forward to it. It’s nice to be outdoors (weather permitting) and doing a fun activity the entire family can enjoy together.

My husband is a huge football fan (Dallas Cowboys). Actually, he loves most sports, but football is his favorite. Our dog is even named after ESPN, the sports channel (we pronounce his his name “Es-pin”).

My husband enjoys everything and anything featuring the Dallas Cowboys. He has too many mugs, jerseys, tee shirts and figurines. It’s getting increasingly harder to buy him Cowboys stuff since he owns most of it already.

There is one thing I was able to get him that proudly displays his favorite team, and it’s something he doesn’t have (nor did he know it even existed) – a “cornhole” game from the company Victory Tailgate. Victory Tailgate is the largest manufacturer of custom high-quality cornhole and tailgate games in the United States.

I’m not sure if the game goes by other names, but the cornhole game is the game where you try and toss bean bags into a small hole (or holes) on a playboard.

Victory Tailgate takes the cornhole board to a hole other level. There is nothing ordinary about their board designs.

Here are a few examples to show you what I mean.

TV Cornhole Games

They have designs for holidays, seasons, humorous, nature, religious, Zen, sports and more. I’m rather surprised by how many different designs they offer. You can even create your own design!

You might be wondering what this has to do with my husband and the Dallas Cowboys. f

In addition to a plethora of designs, Tailgate Victory also carries a large number of branded designs from the NFL, NBA, NASCAR, Military and even Star Wars designs.

The Han Solo embedded in Carbonite is awesome! You can even get bean bags designed to compliment your cornhole game.

Star+Wars+Cornhole+Game+Set+Carbonite+Han+Solo+Version-1448661199

Star+Wars+Droid+Replacement+Cornhole+Bag+Set+-1448643101

 

I love it!

Victory Tailgate sent my family one of their Dallas Cowboys cornhole games to try out for ourselves. They actually have about a dozen designs for each team.

Here is the board design that we received.

DC Cornhole Game

These are NOT cheapy made games! You could tell from the moment we took it out of the packaging that this was a high quality made game – one intended to last for many years to come.

The design is awesome (my husband LOVES it). You can see from the photo that it has a glossy finish too (you can see how the light is reflecting from it).

The board is heavy. I was surprised to feel how heavy it was.

Victory Tailgate attached the wooden legs underneath. There is nothing you need to attach – simply pull the legs down when you want play the game and push them back up underneath when you are done playing.

Leg

Even from underneath (as pictured above) you can see how thick the wood is and how well made the board is.

In addition to the cornhole game, Victory Tailgate also included matching bean bags, a bag to keep the beanbags in and a carrying case for the board to make it easy to take it with you on the go.

Game 1

Game 2

Game 3

If you are fortunate to have a backyard where you can leave your set out year round (or most of the time), Victory Tailgate has covers to protect your game from the weather.

Due to the weather we haven’t had a chance (yet) to play our game outside. For the time being we set it up in the hallway (outside our condo). There is enough room for us to get far enough away from the board to make tossing the bean bag into the hole challenging.

Our next door neighbor (also a Cowboys fan) borrowed the game to take over to his brother’s house around Thanksgiving. He said his brother loved it so much that he needed to find out where we got it from so he could tell his brother. I guess his brother is going to get a set for himself.

I love that the game is super easy to set up. Anyone could do it – even children. It’s also a fun game that children and adults can both enjoy.

Storage was a bit tricky at first, but we found that it fits under my son’s bed with no problem.

The only “downside” it that the board is a bit heavy, which might not be easy for little kids to tote around (my kids are teenagers so it’s not a problem).

In addition to the cornhole game boards/set, Victory Tailgate also carries other fun games that are meant to be played outdoors. Personally I think most of them can be played indoors too if you have ample room.

My personal favorite is the Giant Tumble Towers. If you have ever saw, or played, Jenga they are essentially Jenga games on an very large scale.

Tumble_Tower_Play_a

Giant-Custom-Tumble-Tower

The kids I work with love Jenga (we have two sets because they all like to play it). Their eyes would pop out of their heads if I showed up with a Victory Tailgate Tumble Tower game.

The Tumble Tower games are also available for sport teams and other brands. Here is the one for the Dallas Cowboys that I have bookmarked to get for my husband for his birthday in the spring.

dallas-cowboys-nfl-wooden-tumble-tower-game-385978

These games would make awesome gifts for a person or for a whole family. I like the idea of giving them as a family gift so that the entire family can enjoy it.

I know that the weather might not be great in many parts of the country, so the idea of outdoors games is probably far from your mind. You CAN enjoy these games indoors. I think these would be fun to have at a daycare center, school (fun gym class activity), nursing home and similar settings.

With the new year coming people often think of ways they want to improve their lives. If spending more time with your family making memories is one of them, then these games are perfect for you. Plus they get kids off the computer (or their phone) and outside for fresh air and physical activity.

If you would like to learn more about the cornhole and/or Tumble Tower games, visit VictoryTailgate.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think about these amazing games? Do they look like something you would like to have to enjoy with your family and friends?

Road Rippers Warp Riders from Toy State

 

Gifts

This time of year parents and grandparents are scrambling to find awesome toys to gift to a child or grandchild.

I remember those days well. We were never ones to go crazy with the “must have” toys of the season. My kids never really asked for those types of toys (thankfully). Instead we focused on fun toys that would not only encourage their imagination, but also something they would not be bored with and tossed aside an hour after they unwrapped it.

Have you ever heard of the brand Toy State? Toy State offers a plethora of toys that are sure to offer your child/grandchild hours of fun play time.

Most of Toy State toys are geared more towards boys with brands such as Hot Wheels and CAT, but little girls also appreciate cars and trucks too. I was a “Tom Boy” growing up. Some of my favorite toys were Tonka trucks and a G.I. Joe doll.

One brand of toy carried by Toy State are Road Rippers. Road Rippers are cars and trucks that have multiple play functions including lights, sounds, music and they can even drive across the room (very quickly too I might add).

Road Rippers Warp Riders Beetle

We had a Road Ripper sports/race car at the childcare facility where I used to work. The kids loved it. It was a popular toy and one of the first toys the kid would go for. Their favorite part of the car was how it could race across the room with just the push of a button. It would shoot across the room very fast until it crashed into something (usually the wall or a chair leg). If our room was bigger I bet it could go a great distance.

I was sent to review a Road Ripper to review – Road Rippers Warp Riders – Volkswagen Beetle (pictured above).

These are fairly large cars.

The Warp Rider is a little different than the one we had at work. According to the brand (Toy State);

Warp Riders has an innovative light effect when the sides and hood burst into a “fire-works -like show. These motorized cars have forward drive, realistic engine sounds, music and a crazy cool light effect.

They are pretty cool. Check out the video I made of the Warp Rider we had received to review.

 

Pretty cool. In hindsight I should have taken a video of it in the dark so you could see how awesome it looks when it’ lit up.

The car requires 3 AA batteries, which are included. You can get a decent amount of play time with one set of batteries. The car was played with a lot at work and I never had to replace the batteries (it was there for a few months before I moved on to another job). I’m glad the batteries are included so your child/grandchild can enjoy playing with it right out of the box. You don’t have to hunt down batteries or a screw driver.

The cars are recommended for children ages 3 and up. I would watch their hands by the back tires. When they spin they could easily snag a finger or hair.

If you would like to learn more about these and other toys carried by Toy State, visit ToyState.com. You can also find the brand on social media. The link are found on the bottom left of their website.

What do you think about this toy? Does it look like a toy your child/grandchild might enjoy?

Top Toy Trends for the Holiday Season from zulily!

 

125717_tegu_hp_2015_0307_md3_1425515526

’Tis the season for gifting little ones the toys they’ve been wanting all year long. This year, it’s not just about play – the most popular toys this season promote learning and creativity!

I LOVE that the popular toys are promoting learning and creativity. I often worry that creativity and imagination are being lost by today’s youth due to current video games and toys. It’s great to hear about the popular trend in toys thi holiday season.

That said, zulily’s resident toy expert, Kenji Yoshinari, provides a list of trends to keep in mind as you scour the zulily Toy Shop for the perfect gifts that will both entertain and educate your child this season. Kenji’s tips are:

  • Use the Force to make sure you give the hottest toys! With the upcoming December 18th premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re sure Star Wars toys and apparel will be flying off the shelves this holiday season. Make sure to purchase early so you don’t miss out!
  • Look out for open-ended building toys. Giving kids the opportunity to let their imagination run wild and not be constrained by instruction manuals is the heart of this hot trend.
  • Switch from STEM to STEAM. Adding the ART component to STEM gives you more ways to introduce creativity and fun to your children’s world of educated play.
  • Customize Your Play! Make the play experience meet who your child is – from personalized rockers and ride-ons, to a doll that looks just like your child.
  • Retro, classic play remains a top trend. Brands and toys that bring back memories of days gone by are at the top of everyone’s list this season. 

149492_starwarsgiftables_hp_2015_1027_meb3_1445717877

In addition, Kenji has pulled together a list of the Breakout Toys of 2015 featured a few below:

  • TEGU Classroom Kit – combine art and education for a great gift.
  • Green Toys – teach your child to care for the environment with these eco-friendly toys. They are easy to maintain, dishwasher safe and don’t require batteries.
  • Build-Your-Own (Customizable) 18” Dolls from Madame Alexander – Customizable and hands-on building, this toy covers off on two top toy trends!
  • Razor Crazy Cart Spinning Go Kart & JoyBay Pink Swing Car – These toys are perfect for kids on the go.
  • FINIS Mermaid Swim Fin – a fin-tastic choice for kids who love the water!

These are some great suggestions. I knew that Star Wars products would be a hot commodity this holiday season due to the film franchise’s seventh installment. I also love that kid are being introduced to the toys that I enjoyed as a child (most especially the retro toys from Fisher Price like the clock and phone pictured below).

At zulily, shoppers have something new to discover each morning including toys, gifts, apparel & accessories, home décor and more. Be sure to check back often on zulily.com or on their mobile app to get the best deals for the whole family this holiday season.

What is the “must have” toy of this holiday season for your child/grandchild?

Fairytale Theatre play set from Build and Imagine

 

Mother and her two year old son are shopping for toys

Mother and her two year old son are shopping for toys

If you celebrate the holidays chances are at one point or another you have had to make your way down the toy aisles. What a daunting task that can be. There are so many toys on the market making it difficult to pick out the perfect toy. Unless you have a wish list to go by, trying to find a great toy to gift is easier said than done.

I work with children and I hear them talk about toys that I have no clue what they are all about.

Many toys these days rely on technology to engage and entertain children. I grew up in a time where there were no computer games or robotic life-life dolls and animals. I was “old school.” I used my imagination and would utilize any object I could find and turn it into a toy. The toys I had rarely made sounds or lit up. I had to do all those things myself (make cars go rooom-rooom and make my own animal sounds).

As a parent I would always look for toys for my kids that promoted imaginative play. I think imaginative play is a dying art in our technologically soaked world.

Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate the today’s technology, and I think some of today’s toys are pretty awesome. but I also value the toys of yesteryear and having a child use their own creativity. I would rather see a child built a castle out of blocks then online with a computer game.

I also appreciate toys that are gender neutral. These days people are trying to be so politically correct about everything – even toys. So what if a boy wants to play with a doll and a girl wants to play with trucks. Toys are meant to be played with and enjoyed by all children. As a child I played with Barbie dolls as well as my GI Joe doll. I wanted a Star Wars At-At as much as I wanted Ballerina Barbie. Just the other day I was talking to my husband about my metal Tonka car carrier and how much I loved that toy.

One company has some great toys that can be enjoy by both boys and girls AND they help to spark imaginations and creative play.

The brand is called Build & Imagine. They make colorfully illustrated magnetic building sets called StoryWalls. Some of their sets include Fairytale Theatre and Pet Portrait Studio.

Build and Imagine

These fun play sets empower children to build customized scenes that spark storytelling. The themed play sets include illustrated magnetic panels that you construct any way you like, magnetic dress-up characters, and dozens of magnetic costumes and props.

“When we launched at the beginning of the year, we knew that building would be empowering for girls,” said Build & Imagine founder and mom Laurie Peterson. “We hadn’t anticipated how powerful the storytelling would be. Unlike a traditional dollhouse in which the setting is fixed, with Build & Imagine StoryWalls play-sets children direct not only how their characters interact in the scene, but what the scene itself looks like. The imaginative play that results is immersive and inspired.”

According to the brand, both Fairytale Theatre and Pet Portrait Studio encourage left (math/science) and right (creativity) brain play. Children construct sets using the magnetic panels using which utilizes STEM skills like spatial reasoning and problem solving. When they create their stories it’s helping to heighten their language skills. Of course the sets are also FUN and can be enjoyed alone or played with other children or family members.

Here is some additional information about both sets.

Other sets include Malia’s Beach House, Marine Rescue Center and Day at the Beach. All sets can be mixed and matched with one another creating endless possibilities.

Other Sets

I received to review the Fairytale Theatre set. This is a fantastic toy that can be enjoyed straight out of the box. It does not require batteries or several hours of charging. On Christmas morning the last thing a child wants to do is to wait to enjoy a brand new toy.

You will have to pop out the magnetic pieces. That is not hard to do. In fact they were super easy to pop out. It took me about two minutes to pop all of the pieces out – eve the thin/tiny wands.

There are a lot of small magnetic pieces that can be easily swallowed. Please keep that in mind if you have little ones at home.

The set comes with two figures and an assortment of expressions and clothing that you can mix and match. I would have liked to have another one or two more figures, but it’s still fun with just the two. Since you can mix and match from other sets you can use the people from other sets if you want.

The people stand up very well. I appreciate that they made the people sturdy and so you don’t have to hold them the entire time.

You can keep all the pieces in the box the set comes in or you can do what we did and put them in a large Ziploc bag.

bag

Clean up is super easy too.

If you are looking for a fun toy that will provide hours of imaginative and creative play, check out the play sets from Build and Image at www.BuildandImagine.com. You can also find the brand on social media (the links are found on the top right of their website).
