Finger Pushing Fun With Modarri Cars

modarri5

Back in November, my boys had the awesome chance to review a fun line of toy cars from Modarri. They fell in love! These cars are a fun new take on an old favorite for boys. What little boy doesn’t like cars? We recently received another three cars from Modarri to build their collection and the fun has quickly doubled! This time, we received the combo 3-pack . This adds another T1 track car, X1 Dirt car, and S1 street car. While similar to the original single cars we received in the same designs, these are colored differently. Each of the cars in the Modarri line come boxed with the car, a set of 3 cones, and a hex tool. This is where the fun begins. You can simply play with the cars as they are, but that would just be crazy! Boys love to tinker and this is the … read more

Disclaimer- The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free Hi, my name is Amber and I am a computer addict. No seriously, I spend way more time than what is truly healthy on my laptop. I do EVERYTHING on here. From banking and shopping to blogging, social networking, watching TV and sometimes a few games. Top that with a million photos of my oh so adorable son and dogs and what do I have? A super slow computer that, quite frankly, angers me more by the day. I have probably gone through 4 or 5 computers in the last 3 years. I get so fed up with limited processing speeds, slow loading times, and the need to transfer all of my files to portable storage options every month to make room! I NEED a new … read more

Nickelodeon Let’s Learn: S.T.E.M. on DVD Today!

STEM

While many moms are on the “TV is bad for kids” kick, I find myself to be quite the opposite. SOME TV is bad for kids, but I am amazed daily by so much of what my child learns while watching his favorite shows. I do not limit his TV time I simply limit what shows he is allowed to watch. Nick Jr. Shows are on his list of allowed shows. His favorites right now are definitely Paw Patrol, Blaze, and Bubble Guppies. Each of these shows teach him so much from counting and ABC’s to shapes and more. Things he was not picking up easily from me trying to teach, he has picked up on watching these shows. So, I was excited to see Nickelodeon start a DVD set that promotes these shows into a “Let’s Learn” theme. My son LOVES these DVD’s! Today, the fifth installment in the Nickelodeon’s … read more
