Hexbug

Hexbug

My kids and their friends love Hexbugs!  By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Hexbug Nano, the cute little robot bugs that move around their track. Just when we thought hex bugs couldn’t get any cooler.  They did.  They now have glow in the dark Hexbugs, glow in the dark Hexbug track, Halloween Zombie Hexbugs, and a new one in the larger Hexbug collection – the Hexbug Larva.  The kids just love them.


We had an awesome time having our Hexbug party last week and all the kids had a blast! I love watching the kids play with these.  The kids find creative ways to put together the habitat tracks and have fun building and rebuilding them.  I think it’s so neat how the bugs seem to have different personalities as they move around their habitats. The kids loved the glow-in-the-dark Hexbugs, Halloween Zombie Hexbugs, the HexBug Nano Glow-in-the-Dark Habitats, and the Hexbug larva.   Our party was during the day (and everyone couldn’t fit in the closet) so it wasn’t dark enough to see the glowing track, but even just the black track when it is not glowing is still very cool.  That night we did shut out the lights and the glowing track and bugs are awesome!

If you are having a Hexbug party, we found tons of great themed food ideas.  The kids favorites are the worms and dirt (pudding with crumbled oreos and of course gummy bugs), and buggy brownies ( powdered sugar dusted brownies with plastic bug decorations) . I’m not sure what it is, but something about bugs on food kids just love, lol.

The Hexbug larva was a big hit too.  These amazing little robotic creatures can sense objects in front of them and will change direction.  The kids love watching them and putting their hands in front of them to make them change direction.  The way they move is very cool, and the way they react to stuff in front of them makes them seem alive.

My favorite is the Halloween Zombie Hexbugs.  They each come in their own little coffin and have a skeleton that clips onto the bug. So cute and the kids loved them.

All of the new Hexbugs and tracks are perfect for Halloween and as we discovered at our party are sure to be on many Christmas lists as well :-)

You can find out more about Hexbugs on their website.

Thanks to Mommy Parties, Mom Select for supplying samples for our party!

Dinosaur Train Lights and Sounds Train Giveaway

Dinosaur Train Lights and Sounds Train Giveaway

My kids love Dinosaur Train. They watch every episode everyday. They love the DVDS, toys and everything related to Dinosaur Train. They sing all the songs and and both of their favorites is Buddy! I knew my son would be excited to get the Dinosaur Train Lights and Sounds Train from Learning Curve. The toy train is just like the one from the show and even comes with Laura Gigantosaurus. The 3-car plastic train features lights and sounds with over 5 different phrases and is sure to be loved by any Dinosaur Train fan.

{Lite Sprites Giveaway}

I love toys that have a story with them, encourage imagination, and help kids learn.  The new Lite Sprites are that type of toy. We recently got the chance to review the Lite Sprites Lite Wand, Prisma, and Pod.

The best thing about the light sprites is the amazing wand.  The wand can “collect” color and “share” it with the sprites and playsets.    It has a “color library” that you can add colors to by holding the bottom of the wand to the color wheel or to any flat surface.  The color of the surface then shows up in top of the wand.  If you aim the wand at a fairy and then hold the button, you can “magically” change the color of the sprites. Very cool!

The light sprites are five sprites that each have their own personalities.   There’s: “Prisma, the leader; Astra, the keeper of the skies; Brooke, who takes care of the water; Meadow, who is responsible for the plants, flowers and trees; and Bleak, the rebel Sprite who uses her powers to disrupt color in Lite-Topia”  Their personalities are a great starting point for kids to create their own stories from as they play.  You can find out more about the fairies on their website.

The light wand also has games included in it.  Theres “color hunt” where you find the color that the wand is displaying and place the bottom of the wand on it before time runs out.  And there is “color mix” where two colors show on the wand and you have to place the bottom of the wand on the color that those two colors make if mixed together.  You can use the “color wheel” or have them run around the house looking for that color.

{Aurora Softy Soakers Giveaway}

If you have read our blog then you may have read some of our reviews on Aurora toys. We have always loved their products and all my kids do. My kids love their YooHoo and Friends and Milly the Pinkest Kitten. And right now they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year, and are releasing a plush collection. These however are not regular plush toys. They actually grow when placed in water. The first in the collection is the Fanta-Sea assortment. This collection will include Dolphin, Seahorse, Turtle, Hammerhead Shark, Octopus and alligator.

My kids were excited to get the Seahorse and all my kids had to do was place the Softy Soakers in water and the plush expands from practically nothing into a full size, eight-inch plush animal. With a little towel drying they soon had their very own sea creature. They really had fun trying them out and could not be more excited about trying the others in the collection. They are really affordable at only $10 each and can be found on their website!

{Paper Jamz Pro Mic, Drum and Guitar}

My kids have not had more fun with an item as they do with their Paper Jamz. Their kid friendly fun products make it so easy for your kid to be a rock star. We were able to review the drums, pro mic as well as the guitar. All are made really great and durable and make for hours of fun. My kids really had fun with the mic. It comes with 2 bulit in songs as well as settings for Chorus, Perfect Pitch and more. My kids were not born with a singers voice but with the Pro Mic they are singing and having more fun then ever before. They can also add songs to it with the Paper Jamz Pro app.

The kids love the drums. You simply tap places on the image of a very cool looking drum set to play the different sounds. They love playing the drums in freestyle mode. It also comes with three preloaded songs and with USB cable to hook it up to the computer to download songs. Coolest feature (kid’s opinion): you can turn the song volume down while keeping the drums loud. The kids love this one. They can play along with the song, but totally hear themselves. Coolest feature (Mom’s opinion): It has a place to plug in headphones! I love that they love playing the drums; there are just sometimes that I don’t want to hear them playing the drums. Paper Jamz has everything your aspiring musician will need to put on a great show while having tons of fun.

It was no surprise that the guitar was also a big hit with them. Combined with the mic and drums it completed their little band and they love it. My kids loved how easy it was to use, even with no guitar experience.You can also add your favorite music with the free Paper Jamz Pro app. This is such a great toy for them to make as much noise as they would like. It comes with four different modes, Perfect Play: play perfect guitar to the 3 included hits, Rhythm: Control the guitar rhythm for each song, Freestyle Play: Play real chords — create your own songs, Karaoke: Sing and play along with the 3 included songs.

{ZombieZoo}

I love finding my kids unique and fun toys. ZombieZoo has a fun line of plush creatures that are completely fun and unique. They are unlike anything I have ever seen. Each one has their own personality and style. They have a living-dead look to them, but still really cute and appropriate for kids. These are far from the fluffy pink plush animals that my daughter already has. I knew she would love Boo the cat. Boo is the leader of the zoo and he also loves to read. My daughter loved reading about all the animals on their website, and loves to read with her cat Boo.They have amazing detail and stitching. They stand 12-15 high and are made of really soft and durable material. You cannot help but love these big headed animals.

There are 5 wonderful and funky adorable animals available including: Boo (Black Cat), Toxic (Red Snake), Rob (Gray Bunny), Stich (Pink Pig), Muck (Brown Monkey). Each one can be purchased for $20.99 and free shipping or all 5 of them for $99. Be sure to read more below about how these wonderful little animals came about.

Dont forget to follow ZombieZoo on Twitter and Facebook and Blog!

SANDIA PARK, New Mexico – ZombieZoo®, the hot new line of collectable plush toys from
award-winning children’s author/illustrator Neecy Twinem, arrives just in time for Holiday 2010. Different and a bit quirky, ZOMBIEZOO characters feature an unusual story line and unique personalities. Detailed information is available at www.ZombieZoo.com.


The ZOMBIEZOO family of fun loving animals includes Boo the black cat, the natural born leader of the group, and Stich, a pig obsessed with hygiene. Along with their friends, Muck (Monkey), Rob (Rabbit)and Toxic (Snake), they stand at 12 to 15 inches high, are made of soft fleece and have a loveable “Frankenstein” quality of stitching adorning their bodies and over-sized heads.


The personality tags hanging around their necks tell their compelling stories to anyone who is looking for a friend and cuddly character to bring home. ZOMBIEZOO characters are available online and at specialty retailers with a suggested retail price of $18.99.


As a lover of toys and anything quirky, ZOMBIEZOO creator Neecy Twinem is realizing what has literally been a dream come true with the introduction of the new Zombies. The line was created when Twinem’s cat Boo, the namesake of one of her characters, and greatest muse, whispered the idea of ZOMBIEZOO to her in her sleep. As a collector of anything playfully dead, and a fan of Dia de los Muertos, Twinem
had always desired to create a collection of her own.


ZOMBIEZOO is unlike any zoo you have ever visited. While it has exotic animals, gift shops, restaurants, moats, fences and a zookeeper, in ZOMBIEZOO, the animals are in charge. “The instant the Zombie critters become your guide, you’re on your way to adventure,” said Twinem. “Let them be your companion and muse. They’re cute and creepy, but never gory. You will be surprised to discover how cuddly these living-dead animals can be!”


About Neecy Twinem:
Neecy is an award-winning children’s book author and illustrator with over 26 published books. Neecy’s richly textured, intensely hued paintings are filled with movement and whimsical spatial play. In addition to hanging in numerous national private collections, her artwork can also be found in a variety of markets including book covers, educational books, classroom readers, and magazines, as well as puzzles, posters, greeting cards, prints, t-shirts, mugs and public murals.

I absolutely love their toys. In my experience they are always high quality and most of their toys are things that I have not seen other places.

We got the chance to review the Large Nature’s Fire “Volcano” My son loves things like this on his desk. It’s a volcano in a water-filled display with little red and white beads that “erupt” from the volcano and “flow” down its sides. This is awesome to watch – interesting and relaxing at the same time – and I’ve never seen it anyplace else. He loves it. He puts it on at night when he is going to bed.

{Melissa & Doug Monster Bowling}

My kids are so hard on toys and always have been. So for me to find toys that can withstand them and still be functional enough to pass down is sometimes challenging! Some of the best toys my kids have are from Melissa & Doug. My kids love their play food sets and will play for hours with them. They are durable, functional and really fun. I love the wonderful selection of Games and Pretend Play and many of their toys have won awards. Their website is shopper and parent friendly. Sign up for their Treasured Toy Club and receive Special Offers, Exclusive Coupons & Promotions, The Opportunity to Enter Giveaways, New Toy Previews.


We had the opportunity to review the Melissa & Doug Monster Bowling. I am not sure who loves this more, mom or the kids? These bright colored fuzzy monsters have been such a hit in my house. The kids love knocking these little guys down and doing it all over again. They are especially fun for my 2 1/2 year old son who cracks up laughing every time he is able to take one out with the ball. He has fun saying the colors of the monsters and even carries these guys around while taking a break from bowling. Their fun colored and fuzzy textures make these great for the younger ones. They clean up easy and go in their own zippered bag. They are available for only 24.99 from Melissa & Doug, you can find more kids games on their site as well.

From puzzles to puppets, plush to play food, magnetic activities, music and more, Melissa & Doug® is one of the leading designers and manufacturers of educational toys and children’s products.
