Are you looking for some unique family fun? Check out the game “Heist” game, by University Games

 

When our children were younger, we played a lot of board games. Some games we played are no longer around (such as the Little Mermaid game our daughter cheated at all the time – LOL).

I wish my kids were still into board games. They are young adults now and don’t have the time between work, college, friends and significant others. Sigh… I guess I’ll have to wait until we’re grandparents before we can play games again. My husband and I can certainly play games with just the two of us, but it’s always more fun when there are more people involved.

I work with children (currently 4th – 6th graders, ages 9-12). I’m lucky that I do have the opportunity to play games at work. We have plenty of the basic games, but I’m always on the look out for something different and unique, most especially one where the kids can cooperate and have fun.

I was sent a game to review by University Games called Heist. Not only does it encourage children and adults to cooperate, but it’s also a game where there is no single winner. Either all players win, or they all lose. I can’t thin of any other game where those are the possible outcomes. Almost all games have just one, clear cut winner.

Working with children, it’s nice to have a game where everyone can win. It helps to minimize sore losers and winners who like to “rub it in your face” that they won. Anything that can reduce conflict and hard feelings among children is great if you ask me.

Heist is a game where all players are part of a team that needs to work together to crack a safe that contains $50 million dollars worth of gold coins. The catch is that you and your team have only five minutes to crack the safe, or the game is over.

Heist comes with a plastic, electronic safe, that instructs you on what you need to do in order to crack open the safe. In addition, the games comes with $50 in play money, “gold” bars and the tools you’ll need to crack open the safe (drill, gloves, laptop, googles, map, headset, flashlight and explosives). The game also comes with instructions.

What is not included are 3 AA batteries. Those are easy enough to come by.

There are four different roles that need to be assumed. If you have less than four players, others can assume two (or more) roles. All four roles must be initiated by pressing the corresponding button on the safe.

The roles are Hacker, Money Man, Lookout and Explosives Expert.

There are different levels to this game. The higher you go, the more challenging the game gets.

I was going to explain how the game is played, but I think posting the actual directions make it easier. I don’t want to explain it in a way that it’s confusing.

The game is easy enough to comprehend, but it does take a few times playing it before everything totally sinks in.

Sometimes passing around the pieces can get a bit confusing. The game pieces are all the same color, and two of them (the laptop and the map) have similar shapes, so it’s easy enough to pass the wrong piece. If that happens, it messes up the results of the game.

You also have to remember each other’s role. So you’ll have to quickly identify the other roles in order to give them (or trade with them) the correct pieces. Once you get used to the game, it gets easier.

The game some how tracks who has what piece, and from time to time will command that a specific role press the button if they have a specific piece. For example, the game might shout out that the money man press the button if they have the googles. If he/she doesn’t have the googles, something got messed up some where and it counts as a mistake. After four mistakes the game is over.

The game might also ask for everyone to press their buttons. Needless to say you need to be listening to the prompt carefully and complete them quickly. Mistakes can lead to the game being over, and no one wants that to happen.

The game it’s self runs for only 5 minutes per game. It’s an action game that keeps you on your toes from the moment you start the game.

I have played this game a few times with my “work kids.” The older kids (11-12 year olds) seem to play with it more than my 9-10 year olds. I believe the game is good for kids 7+ (the game is at work, therefore I can’t check the box to be certain).

I am not able to take photos of my “work kids” playing the game (for obvious reasons).

This is a fun game that people of all ages can enjoy together.

If your family enjoys games, or if you host a family (or friend) game night, you certainly should consider looking into Heist.

Heist is available on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s websites. I would recommend Amazon (it’s A LOT cheaper there than on B&N).

For more information about this game, visit UniversityGames.com/Heist. Be sure to check out the other fun games that University Games has to offer (UniversityGames.com).

One of my all time favorite University Games is Rubik’s Race. I purchased it originally on Zulily. I loved it so much ( as do my “work kids”) that I purchased another set on Amazon. That is a great game too.

The brand can also be found on social media. Their links are found on the top right of their website.

Give the gift of imagination with toys from Schleich

 

When I was a young girl, there was a plant nursery that my parents used to take me to. To be honest, as boring as it sounds for a child, I didn’t mind going there. I liked visiting that nursery because there was a glass menagerie next to the check out that was filled with glass animal figures. I looked at that display the same way children look at toys through a toy store window. I was in awe.

I always wanted one of those glass figures, but my parents never bought me one. They were afraid I’d want to play with it, instead of leave it on the shelf just to look at. They were probably right. It’s probably not the best idea to give a child GLASS to play with. LOL!

Fast forward to my adult years. There is something else that catches my eye at a local store, located right by the cashier. It’s a display of figures from the brand Schleich.

You might not be familiar of the brand by name, but chances are you have seen their products before, especially if you have children or grandchildren.

I have seen Schleich products at Target, Walmart, Amazon, local toy stores and other places.

Schleich is a German brand of hand painted toy figures and accessories. The brand is well known around the world.

I have only ever seen Schleich animals and accessories. I’ve never come across people, but I know they make them for the play sets.

What makes these figures better than similar toys is their realism. I have never come across such realistic toys before.

Here are just a few examples to prove my point about their realism.

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you have probably read about how I’m all for creativity and imagination. Sadly, I think a lot of today’s youth are missing out on that. They are too focused on video games, cellphones and iPads. They don’t take the time to play with actual toys that don’t involve power or electricity. I’m more into games that use the power of the MIND.

Growing up there were no kids on my street for me to play with. I spent a lot of time during the summer and vacations with my cousins, but most of the time I had no one to play with but myself. For that reason I learned to use my imagination. Let me tell you, I could play for HOURS by myself and be perfectly content and happy.

As an adult, whenever I see Schleich toys, I want to buy them for MYSELF. I love how they look, and I can easily imagine myself playing with them for hours upon hours if I was younger.

I was THRILLED when I received some Schleich toys to review.

I received a T-Rex, Tiger (Tigers are my favorite wild animals) and a Unicorn.

Let me start with the T-Rex.

The T-Rex is a larger Schleich toy. You can see how much bigger he is than the other two. I would image they would all be true to size if they were real (a horse is taller than a tiger, a T-Rex is taller than a horse).

The unique thing about this T-Rex is that it’s jaw opens and closes. That’s pretty cool. I have never come across a Schleich creature before with moving parts.

Just look at the incredible detail. From the curve in it’s tongue, to the “webbing” that attaches the jaw, nothing was overlooked when creating this piece.

This T-Rex reminds me a lot like the one in Jurassic Park. If you’ve seen the movie, you probably know what I am talking about.

Any little boy or girl who loves dinosaurs will go crazy for this toy.

Another fun figure that I was sent is a Unicorn. Schleich not only does realistic animals, but they also have fantasy animals and people (fairies).

The one I was sent to review is the Rainbow Unicorn Stallion (male). They also have a Mare (female) available, as well as other Rainbow (and non-colorful) Unicorns.

These Unicorns feature colorful accents to their tails and manes, as well as sparkly glitter and a horse on it’s rear filled with colorful “gem” stones.

Check out the exquisite detail. You can actually make out the strands of hair in the mane, and the hair on it’s body.

I like how the brand added just a touch of glitter to give it some glitz and shine, but not too much to make it look tacky.

It’s certainly a beautiful Unicorn.

I also received a Tiger to review. I love Tigers! I think they are one of the most beautiful creatures in the world. It’s such a shame that my future great-grandchildren, if not my future grandchildren, will never get to see one of these majestic creatures, except in books.

I love to visit the Tiger exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. This is one of my favorite photos that I took. You would never think that the tiger was on the other side of glass.

The Schleich did not disappoint me. As a Tiger lover, I really like this toy. As with the other Schleich toys, the makers made sure to put every detail into it’s creation.

I especially love that the toys are hand painted. That does mean that there might be some slight variations, but for the most part they all look very similar.

The second photo (above) is not that good, but at least you can make out the strands of fur/hair on it’s back.

I shared a photo of the trio that I received to review on my personal Facebook page. I had commented that a Dinosaur, Unicorn and Tiger together would make for a great children’s story. My husband commented with this story.

I’m sorry that the images don’t match up.

I think he did a pretty good job. I’m proud of him. My husband has always been great at writing.

If you are interested in learning more about Schleich toys, visit https://us.schleich-s.com/en/US/. The brand is also on social media. All of their links are found on the bottom of their website.

Schleich products are available for purchase on their website, as well as other retail locations (both on and off line) around the world.

Does your child own any Schleich toys? If so, which one(s)?

‘Autism Live’ Names Moosh-Moosh Plushies The Top Sensory Toy For 2019

 

Our son when he was a little boy.

I don’t make it a point of telling people this, but our son was once diagnosed with Asperger’s, which is a form of Autism. I suspected that he might have it ever since he was a toddler. She showed all the signs of having it.

As he grew up, we had him evaluated by a lot of doctors and professionals to get an iron-clad diagnosis. Sadly, no two doctors could agree on if he had Asperger’s or not. Some say he did, some said he had ADHD, some said there was nothing “wrong” with him. It was frustrating.

My son is now 20 years old. He’s a regular twenty something. He goes to college. He has a job and a car payment, and he has a girlfriend (2 1/2 years and counting). Even so, he still says and does things that make me believe that he does have a bit of Asperger’s. But I guess we’ll never know for certain.

I know that there are a lot of kids diagnosed on the Autism spectrum. This is why I thought I should tell you about Moosh-Moosh. Moosh-Moosh was named the The Top Sensory Toy For 2019, as per Autism Live.

Did you know…

About 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. ASD is about 4 times more common among boys than among girls. And it is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.

So what exactly is a Moosh-Moosh?

Moosh-Moosh is a recommended autism toy that can help a child build essential developmental skills as they play.

Moosh-Moosh are a line of colorful, adorable, snugly stuffed toys in a variety of designs, from cupcakes to bats, and from unicorns to pigs.

 

Some Moosh-Moosh plush toys are a bit more. Some are piggy banks and others are flashlights.

I love the flashlight idea. It’s a great way to provide your child with a sense of security with a flashlight to light up the dark and scare away the “Boogeyman,” as well as a snugly, plush toy your child can cuddle with.

My only criticism is that I don’t like the light in the center of it’s forehead. But that is just me.

The piggy bank is also super cute. Your child can learn about saving money all while having a cute friend to snuggle with. It’s also kid-friendly.

Please ignore our kitten’s wonky foot in the one photo.

These are safe, durable, and work well in the home, classroom, or in a therapy center. Sensory toys may help children with autism focus, calm down in stressful situations, or relax.

“This is huge,” emailed Sean Price, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer of Moosh-Moosh parent company MMG Brands to his staff. “We are the world’s softest plushie, adored by kids, tweens, teens and college co-eds. This 2019 Autism Live Top Sensory Toy/Gift Award fortifies all of the reasons why we offer the soft fabric characters that bring pleasure and comfort to so many.”

I should note that your child does not have to have Autism to appreciate these cuddly toys. Case in point, my daughter is 22 years old and she currently sleeps with one of the Moosh-Moosh toys I was sent to remove.

The brand was kind enough to send me a variety of Moosh-Moosh plushies. They are so cute!

Each Moosh-Moosh has a name.

One of the Moosh-Moosh toys I was sent to review is an adorable bat. I used him as a Halloween decoration. I kept him on our couch, like a throw pillow. I would often grab him and cuddle with him while watching TV. Sadly, I don’t remember his name.

Check out the other adorable Moosh-Moosh I was sent. My daughter has the one called Poindexter, the ice cream.

The pink shark called Nibbler would be a fun gift for a child that LOVE Baby Shark. He (or she) kind of looks like one of those sharks.

I can’t think of a child that doesn’t appreciate a soft, cuddly plush toy to snuggle with, especially one that won a major award.

If you are interested in learning more about these colorful, cuddle creatures, visit the Moosh-Moosh official website, www.moosh-moosh.com.

The brand can be found on social media. All of their links are found on the top left of their website.

Moosh-Moosh toys are found at many retail locations across the country, including Michaels, Staples, CVS, JoAnn and Walgreens. You can also purchase them directly from the Moosh-Moosh website.

What do you think about the Moosh-Moosh toys? Do you think your child or that special little boy or girl in your life would like one of these?

Light up the night with Continuum Games Emoji-Notes Color & Shine and Lumenico SleepyLights

 

Are you looking for a great gift for a ‘tween or teen? I know how hard they can be to buy for these days. Most want gift cards or cash. Call me old fashioned, but I don’t find opening an envelope of cash or a gift card as fun and exciting as opening a tangible gift.

My kids both asked for cash or gift cards. They also asked for things for their cards (new tires and new breaks). I’m pretty sure wrapping tires might be a bit difficult, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to wrap new breaks. Ha Ha.

I have two fun gift ideas for the ‘tween or teen in your life. They can also work for younger children. Both items are available from Continuum Games, the same company that brings you Snuggle Monsters.

Many kids these days have smartphones (some have better ones that I do). Texting and emojis are a bit part of their lives (sad to say).

Continuum has a fun product that appeals to cellphone loving kids. It’s called Emoji-Notes Color and Shine.

Emoji-Notes Color & Shine craft kits ($19.99). These kits allow you to color your nightlight and write your own messages.  When you’re ready for a change, wipe it clean and color it again.  This is a light up message board, night light and craft kit all in one.

Emoji-Notes Color & Shine are available in four different shapes – cellphone, cupcake, ice cream and doughnut.

Each Emoji-Notes Color & Shine also comes with seven special markers and cute emoji discs to add some color and emotion to the design. It also comes with a base with a white LED light that can be dimmed if needed.

To use, simply pop in whatever emoji (or emojis – you can use two at a time) you want to use. Then use the markers to write special messages or designs.

To enjoy, turn out the lights, turn on the Emoji-Notes Color & Shine and watch our design light up the room. It’s really cool. The markers give the design a really cool look in the dark. It’s hard to explain how it looks.

The base has a sleep mode and hour timer, so you can use this as a nightlight too.

I tried to take a good picture of mine, but it didn’t work. I showed how it looks without an emoji (the empty circle). You can use the included emojis or not. It’s up to you.

The text is suppose to be green, and the “Santa” red. In my photo parts of the green look white.

My apologies for the smudge marks. I didn’t realize that until I uploaded the photo. They look A LOT better in person.

A similar product by Continuum Games is their Lumenico SleepyLights ($29.99). They are made by Aloka.

SleepLights are similar in the way that they are designs on a clear, plastic background on a base with LED lights.

The cool thing about these is that you can change the color of the design simply by pressing the included remote control. You can also have the product cycle through the different colors and other modes.

I received the Unicorn to review. There are other shapes available such as a mermaid, dinosaur and butterfly.

These not only make great night lights, but they really light up the room and add color to another wise dark room.

I’m an adult and I find this really cool.

I had it on the bookcase next to my desk. I would turn it on and watch it go through all the colors. It’s also fun to change the colors.

Currently mine is packed away (I replaced it with Christmas decorations). I had meant to take a video of it cycling through the colors, but I forgot to. Sorry.

I think both products would make great gifts for the ‘tween, teen or child in your life.

I have linked to the products for your convenience. They are not affiliate links.

What do you think of these products? Do you think your ‘tween or teen would like them?

Help kids fall to sleep at night with Snuggle Monster Hide & Seek Bedtime

 

Do you have a child that has a hard time falling to sleep at night?

I’ve always been a “night owl,” even as a child. I still am today.

I’m grateful that our daughter never had an issue falling asleep or staying asleep. Our son on the other hand – ugh!

When our son was an infant he had colic. He would scream all night long from it. It’s like he never slept.

As a child, we had a hard time getting him to fall asleep and stay asleep. Even as a teen, and now young adult, he goes to bed very late and still wakes up early. I hear him up in the middle of the night a lot of the time. He seems to function fine on only a few hours sleep.

Sometimes children have a hard time falling asleep at night because they are worried about what can be lurking in the closet or under their bed. Many children are afraid of the “Boogeyman” and other monsters.

There is a fun way to make children believe that not all monsters are scary. In fact, some can be silly and snugly.

Let me introduce you to Snuggle Monster Hide & Seek Bedtime ($29.99).

Snuggle Monsters are available in three different colors – Purple, Pink or Blue.

Each Snuggle Monster comes with a beautifully illustrated storybook that can make going to bed at night a fun night time activity. In fact, children might even want to go to bed, just to have fun finding their Snuggle Monster.

When you first receive your Snuggle Monster and book, read the book to your child so that they learn more about their Snuggle Monster, as well as the other Snuggle Monsters.

The book teaches children that Snuggle Monsters are super silly creatures that hide in their room during the day because the sunlight to them is like being in the dark for us. Snuggle Monsters are afraid of the sunlight, just like how some children are afraid of the dark.

Each night, before your child’s bedtime, hide their Snuggle Monster some where in their room. When it’s time for them to go to bed, let your child find their Snuggle Monster. When they find it, it’s time for them both to get to bed (your child and their Snuggle Monster friend).

This is a fun activity parents can utilize with their child to help them go to bed without any fuse.

I was sent a Snuggle Monster and book set to check out for myself. I received the blue Snuggle Monster.

The plush Snuggle Monster is super cute and very well made. I can see why children want to snuggle with them. I’m an adult and “I” want to snuggle with the Snuggle Monster.

I adore the book. The story is cute and the illustrations are darling. Not only do they depict super cute Snuggle Monsters, but the illustrations are also bright, cheery and colorful.

Here is an example of one of the pages from the book.

I think this is a super cute idea. It’s one of those “why didn’t anyone think of it sooner,” ideas. I wish this was around when my son was little.

Snuggle Monster is from Continuum Games. They are available on Amazon (this is not an affiliate link) and other retail locations.

What do you think about Snuggle Monsters? Do you think something like this would help your child/grandchild fuse less at bedtime? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Fun New Toys from Disney

 

I truly miss my kids being little. I had so much fun picking out toys to gift them from “Santa.” I enjoyed it more than shopping for adults.

My husband and I never really followed trends. We were not about to drive all over town, fight people for the last remaining toy, then wait on long lines to pay an over-inflated price just to own the “it” toy of the season. If it was something my kids truly wanted, we would get it for them after the holiday and give it to them as a “belated gift from mom and dad” for Christmas. Thankfully, my kids were never really cared about the “it” toys of the season either.

When it comes to buying toys, there is one brand that always puts out fun toys that kids love. They also offer so many varieties to suit kids of all ages, as well as their interests. That brand is Disney.

I love Disney. I love the Disney stores. Even as adults, my husband an I always visit the Disney store when ever we are at the mall. Sometimes we buy things for others, as well as ourselves. I’ve been known to buy a plush toy (or two) every now and then. I also like some of the figurines which I use to adorn my desk (my desk looks like a toy store).

Here are some examples of toys that are available this year from Disney. You can purchase these toys at many retail locations across the country.

I was sent some other fun Disney toys to check out. Both are available this holiday season.

Minnie Mouse and Fifi Pet Bath Play Set

MSRP: $24.95
Available: Now
Licensee: shopDisney | Disney Store
Retailer: shopDisney.com

Even Fifi enjoys bath day with Minnie’s pet bath play set. A real, working sprayer and faucet makes the most of this tub time opportunity. Watch what happens when Fifi changes color in warm water!

This is a super adorable play set. First and foremost, Fifi is the cutest! I love her happy smile and adorable eyelashes.

This play set comes with everything you need to bathe Fifi and make her look pretty – tub, two hair clips, brush, shampoo bottle, sponge, and towel. And of course Fifi!

The shampoo bottle is make believe. There is no shampoo inside.

To use this set, simply add some water, and using the working faucet and sprayer, bathe Fifi.

The cool thing is that Fifi changes color with warm water.

After her bath, towel dry Fifi, brush her ear fur and add some pretty hair clips. Now Fifi looks really pretty.

This set has a lot of detail to it. I love the “H” and “C” tub knobs to represent Hot and Cold. I also like how colorful it is and the sparkly hair clips.

I would recommend placing a towel under this toy as I’m sure young children might be a bit messy with it (older children would probably be OK).

Children can even take Fifi in the bath with them and give her a bath there as well.

This would be a fun toy to teach little ones how to properly bathe themselves by practicing bathing FiFi.

Too cute!

Look for the Fifi Bath Set at ShopDisney.com.

Another fun toy I was sent was a Disney Princess Fashion toy.

Disney Princess Fashion Dolls
MSRP: $9.99
Available: Now
Licensee: Hasbro

The Princess fashion dolls are ready for shimmering adventures with your little princess! Wearing her classic outfit with a new twist, Royal Shimmer dazzles in a signature-colored gowns with glitter print details. Your little dreamer will love playing out magical moments from Disney’s movies, as well as imagining her own fairy tale.

The Princess Fashion Dolls are available for every Princess (at least all I can think of).

I was sent Cinderella. She’s one of my favorite Princesses.

This is a beautiful doll. She has such a pretty face.

What I really like about this doll is how sparkly she is. She sparkles all over – from the bottom of her dress to her tiara on top of her head.

You have to see this doll in person to see just about sparkly she is – but not in a bad way (sometimes sparking can be “overkill,” but not with this doll).

The “bodice” (is that what it’s called?) is made with reall interesting “gems” (for lack of a better description. The photo does not do it justice.

You can also make out the subtle sparkles in the rest of her dress (skirt). Hopefully you can see them in the photo (below).

Look for the Disney Princess Fashion Dolls at Target.

These are just some of the wonderful toys from Disney.

Disney toys can be found at many retail locations across the country (some are listed above with the toys).

What do you think about these toys? Are there any that your child/grandchild might like?
