My kids are fully into electronics now, they use them for homework, games, email to keep in contact with old friends and so much more. I do worry about their safety online though and have set tons of parental controls. My youngest wants to go on the computer but I worry about his safety as he is so young. Now I don’t have to worry with the new Leapfrog Epic Tablet.
Leapfrog Epic Tablet is all tablet. It’s very different from the leap pads and tablets they have introduced before that could be used with gam cartridges. This is strictly a tablet and you can download the games from the Leapfrog app center.
It has a few things preloaded into it like cute videos and games.
It also has a parent center where you can put a limit on how much time your child is allowed. You can add in links of sites you will allow your child on and those will be the only websites they have access too.
Leapfrog Epic Tablet is a great gift for younger children who love playing with their parents electronic devices, but without the worry of them going to a inappropriate site, or posting that hideous picture of you hiding in your phone.
My son loves this tablet, although I have given him a bit of free access to a lot of sites that he loves. Leapfrog Epic Tablet also comes with a rubber case to help protect the tablet from those unfortunate drops. My daughter loves the voice recorder on it. She records herself singing or just uses it to remind herself of something. It’s the perfect learning tool for little kids as it helps you with time, geography, math and so much more.

The WubbleX is a anti gravity ball.
The WubbleX seems like a mixture of a balloon and a bubble. We didn’t know what to expect at first since it was anti-gravity was it going to float away or something. You start out by inflating the ball and since it is a helium inflated ball it only uses the Wubble cans, which can be expensive themselves. I picked mine up at Walmart for $10. The can only lasts about one use.
The WubbleX ball is a lot of fun. My kids love bubbles but they are hard to catch and burst to fast. The WubbleX is like a Bubble that doesn’t pop unless it hits something pointy of course.
My kids loved playing with it but the and-gravity didn’t last to long and the WubbleX started to come down after a hour or two. Within a few days it was totally deflated and my kids were begging me to go buy another because they loved it.
The come in all different colors too blue, green and pink.

All I have been seeing in commercials and ads is the Wubble ball, but I was skeptical as it looks more like a bubble that will easily pop.
The Glo Wubble Bubble ball looks like a bubble, plays like a ball. Inflates up to 3 feet. Starts out small and 2 minutes later, it’s 3 feet tall. Made from super-thermo-stretch-tacular stuff. Catch it, kick it, squeeze it and make it fly.
** My kids absolutely love this ball. As I had mentioned above I was really skeptical about this ball and it’s not as sturdy as I thought, but it has lasted. I had some trouble when we first went to blow it up with the pump provided in the box. I couldn’t get the pump to go through and had to puncture it just a bit.
The Glo Wubble was able to blow up and stayed a good size but because I punctured it had a slow leak and hours later was almost fully deflated. WE just reflated it and taped the hole. The Glo Wubble can be reused many times and my kids inflate it daily and go outside to play catch.
The ball does glow in the dark after you hole it up to the light for a while. Ours didn’t seem to glow to much but the kids still found it fascinating.
I also noticed the ball seemed a bit sticky and would stick to the ground a bit which made it get dirty very fast.
We have had this ball for a few weeks and my kids have played with it everyday inside and out.

Chibi-Robo Zip Lash is a tiny hero. Chibi-Robo must swing his plug to whip enemies, reach far-off platforms and solve environmental puzzles, as well as collect upgrades to extend his plug for getting hard-to-reach collectibles and uncovering hidden areas.
*** This game has been so addicting for me, I am just determined to beat a level. Every level and world is totally different with different challenges. Chibi Robo uses his Zip Lash to defeat enemies, as well as swing from area to area and more.
My kids love this game is challenging but fun and that you can use the Amiibo with it and change Chibi-Robo up.
We are still in the process of getting through levels, but one thing I don’t really like about the game is you don’t get to choose the level to play. You spin a wheel and that chooses how many spaces you move. So we have been stuck playing the same levels that have already been completed. You can buy panels to add to the wheel to make sure you get to the level you need, but that becomes a pain. If you get really stuck on a level you can choose to pay through it with the coins that you have collected.
Jurassic World is finally in theaters, the wait is over. We can’t wait until we see it this weekend. It’s going to be the ultimate rush movie. Leaving you on the edge of your seat.
So after you and your family see Jurassic World everyone is going to want to reenact the scenes from the movie. So why not do so with a Jurassic World Lego set.
This lego set is so much fun, although it took my 2 hours to put together. My son loves it. It comes with 2 raptors, 3 lego figurines and enough legos to build a dinosaur medic van and motorcycle. My son has not stopped playing with it. He loves how interactive it is. The van doors open in the back as well as the driver an passenger side. It has a small weapon on top that really shoots little arrows, and the raptors can open their mouths and move their arms and legs. (with the child’s help of course.)
Win your own Jurassic World Raptor Rampage Lego set:

Shopkins are finally available in store, well at Toys R Us at least for now. Moose Toys has released a limited amount of packs to Toys R Us locations nationwide.
Not all Shopkins are available yet, I have yet to see a few Shopkins in each category like Mixie and Maxie, or Cherie Tomato.
A few people on the west coast have found the season 3 plays sets, but when asking a Target employee he said they are not suppose to be out yet. So not really sure what is going on with that. Everything is suppose to be out in August, and I am hoping that is true.
The crowds and craziness have been a bit to overwhelming for me. People have been lining up at stores at 7 am, and of course there are the people that sell on ebay for ridiculous prices.
For me it’s all about the kids, and my kids absolutely Love Shopkins. Moose Toys sent us a few packs to open, and the kids were zoo excited.
5 pack reveal:
Whats your favorite from season 3 so far? Mine would have to be the Croissants from the package. So tiny, but so cute.
Season 3 Shopkins are now in stock at Toys R Us online.

Season 3 Shopkins are finally here, well trickling out very slowly. I saw that they were available online at Toys R Us and quickly put in a order. They sold out within 1 hour.
We have been waiting for season 3 after finishing up our collection. We have one of each character not color, excluding Limited Editions.
Season 3 Shopkins are so cute. The categories include: Fruit and Veggies, International Foods, Homewares, Stationaries, Hats, Shoes, Sweet Treats and Bakery. Of course there are limited editions also, they are jewels.
They are so cute: Although some of the Shopkins seem a bit smaller than season 1 and 2. But I love that they are including more male related Shopkins this time around. Colors are more solid and more Shopkins featuring male names, like Aspara-Gus, Ginger-Fred, Casper Cap and a few more.
Our favorites are:
Kenzie loves Nettie Spaghetti
William Loves Ginger-Fred
Alex loves Fiona Fries
Brandy loves Sconnie
Who is excited? I’am but to be honest I am not about the hunt. Every time my local stores get them one person wipes them out.
You will be able to find these in stores very soon or keep checking online for updates and in stock orders.

Shopkins are one of the hottest toys in the world right now. They have so many fun and kid friendly play sets and figures, it’s all day fun for kids.
My 3 kids are all crazy about Shopkins, they play with them daily. We have almost all of them, including play sets.
We just received the Shopkins Vending machine to add to our collection. I have never seen the vending machine in stores, usually they are sold out of everything by the time I get there.
The vending Machine is really cute and comes with 2 special edition Shopkins that can only be found in the play set.
There are a few different special editions in the Vending Machines. I received the product with Cheesy-B and Alpha soup.
The Shopkins Vending Machine is so cute and just big enough to hold all your Shopkins.
My kids love the Shopkins Vending machine and have been playing with it non-stop. They said it would be better if it had actual shelves built in or the little circle clasps real vending machines have. You can just leave the plastic in the Shopkins Vending Machine to use as shelves.
You can find the Shopkins Vending Machine at local retailers nationwide for $17.99

Shopkins have only been on the market for about a year, but they are already my children’s favorite toy. They play with them day and night. If your kids do love them, well then of course you know how hard they are to find. It gets pretty crazy!
Now, there is a new Shopkins item on the market just in time for Easter. Shopkins Slap Bands are the new it item. Once I see them in store they are gone within 10 minutes.
There are 8 different bands featuring your favorite shopkins characters, like Lippy Lips, Pineapple Crush, Soda Pops and more.
The Shopkins Slap Bands are very sturdy and don’t break, unless of course you bend them and roll them the wrong way. I was telling my kids about loving slap bands when I was younger but they were flimsy and made of really cheap material. The Shopkins Slap Bands are very sturdy and you can even throw them from a short distance and they attach to the arm.
My kids just love showing them off and everyone asks where they can get them.
Shopkins Slap Bands are available at select retailers that you can find here.

My kids have fallen for the Shopkins craze, and when a new product comes out they just want it.
One of the latest products is the Shopkins So Cool Fridge Playset.
The fridge comes with two special characters and tiny eggs. You can open the fridge and all it’s compartments. The ice maker even works, just stick a Shopkin on it and push for ice and it falls in the cup. The fridge can hold plenty of Shopkins and has been non stop fun for my kids.
They have been sticking the shoes and appliances in the fridge,and then complaining it doesn’t go there. We don’t have very many season 1 which have the Dairy.
My kids love Shopkins but as a mom they can be so hard to find, and there have been a few times where I will find them but then someone scoops everything up before I can get one. It has taken months just to get the few we have, because I tell my kids they can have 1 pack each when we find them. It’s only fair to leave them for other kids who love them.
Shopkins Easter Basket Fun:
We have been putting together some fun ideas for a Shopkins Easter Basket including the fridge. Shopkins are so small they can fit in the Easter eggs and it’s perfect for a egg hunt.
Depending on the size eggs you buy you can fit a Shopkin in a small egg or a Shopkin with a shopping bag in a big egg.
