Magic Science with The Young Scientists Club

clifford

My four year old is a huge science fan already. He is always “doing a spearmint” as he calls it. He even got a telescope and microscope for his birthday because he likes looking in depth at things. I think it amazing that he shows such an interest this early and since it was always one of my favorite subjects, I do everything I can to encourage it! He recently received a Magic Science kit from The Young Scientists Club to review and I think he would sleep with the set if I’d let him! The Young Scientists Club has a really amazing line of products that he is always excited to check out. The minute he saw the box come in, he wanted to do every experiment in the book. The magic Science kit comes with rainbow glasses, measuring cup, test tube, bottle connector, screen, sponges, mirrors, a lab tray, a … read more

The Queen’s Treasures- Taking pretend play to the next level!

doll 2

As a mom of two boys, I don’t always get to show my feminine side. I LOVED having dolls growing up and spent many days playing pretend with them for hours on end. I always wanted an American Girl Doll because I was enthralled with their story lines and it just added another level to pretend play. But I never had one because we didn’t have the money. Now that I am a mom of 2 boys, I will likely never see my chance to order one of those dolls. But, I still love to make sure my boys learn the importance of pretend play. Not just little girls grow up to cook and care for families anymore! So, when I got the chance to review a doll accessory kit from The Queen’s Treasures, I still jumped on the chance! While much of the site is specifically geared towards clothing … read more

Ozobot-The Game Piece With A Brain!

ozobot3

HI, my name is Amber and I LOVE “techie” toys. I have always been big into computers, programming, coding… my goal in life is to one day work in IT. Both of my boys have also started showing a huge interest as well. They see me blogging and try to understand some of the small coding involved and always question things. It is hard to teach young children all of this. There has to be something that can start their minds on this track in life right? Absolutely! Meet Ozobot. To some it is a game piece. Some see it as a robot. Others like myself see it as an opportunity to shape a young mind and help to build the lifelong dream to learn programming. I really wish Ozobot had been around when I was younger. I received a two pack of this amazing creation from Evollve, Inc to … read more

Modarri Toy Cars Review

modarri cars

With two boys in the house, we own a ridiculous amount of toy cars. The collection started way back when my oldest was abut 3 or 4 and has just grown since then. Boys love cars. My only issue is that no matter how many we add, they all seem to be the same. Either they are run by remote or they are 1 of a gazillion matchbox cars that all do the exact same thing and just have different looks to them. The boys don’t mind and would continue adding to this. S, when I heard about a new line of cars released from Modarri that would reinvent the toy car world, I had to check them out. This new line of cars comes in Street Car, Track Car, and Dirt Car versions as well as a fun DIY car. You can see below from left to right is … read more

Brilliant Sky Brilliance Award Toys Review and Giveaway

squigz2

As a mom, I love small toy shops. Yes, they don’t carry quite the selection that a big chain store does, but the selection they do offer can be very unique and fun. I love to step outside the box and check out toys you don’t see advertised all over the place. Brilliant Sky Toys and Books is the perfect example. They have 17 stores in the US and offer great quality toys. I wasn’t aware of this, but each year they choose a list of their favorite toys and dub them with the “Brilliance Award”. I think it is pretty cool to see the options they choose as top toys compared t what you would see at chain stores (you know, the items you see EVERYWHERE and get tired of seeing) I had an amazing opportunity to check out a few of the Brilliant Sky Brilliance Award winners for … read more
