My First Telescope #Review #GeoSafariJr #Spon @ed_insights

GeoSafari has made such a cute, and durable My First Telescope.  The first thing I noticed about it was how simple it was to put together.  It comes in two pieces, and the Telescope has a vertical lock knob to attach to the Tripod.  

What makes it nice is the Center of the tripod has supports so that the legs stay up on their own and only when you want it to collapse it does for storage.  Both my 5 year old son, and my 6 year old nephew had fun looking for animals in the trees that were about 100 feet away.  The extra large eye pieces and google shape made it easy for them to use the telescope, and it moved around easily from the horizontal knob feature.

Big Bucket Of Zombies Action Figures on Brain Cupcakes #Review #Halloween #‎BigBucketOfZombies‬ ‪#‎FTWD‬ ‪#‎TWD‬ ‪#‎Walkers‬ ‪#‎Zombies‬ ‪#‎Spon‬

With Halloween approaching, and my Favorite Zombie Shows like Fear The Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead on I can't get enough of the Walkers.  It made complete sense to me why I needed a Bucket of 100 Plastic Zombies, Men/Women Running From Zombies, Zombie Pets, and matching Zombies escaping from Grave stones all Night of the Living Dead in my collection too.

I am going to add a handful to my Halloween Candy bowl as well.  There are plenty to go around! I also am going to use them for on top of Brain Cupcakes.

For the brain cupcakes I just use a basic red velvet cake mix, whipped icing with a little bit of red food coloring and put the dark pink icing in the corner of a sandwich bag, twirl the bag til all the icing is just in one corner, then cut a small hole in that corner. Then do this Brain pattern on to of the cupcake. It makes it look like brains!

If you want to do a Zombie Cake without the unwanted effort, you could use this to make a Grave yard with Zombies, and still have a lot left over to put in Party Favor Bags. The possibilities of these Action Figures are almost endless.

What I really like about The Big Bucket of Zombies Action Figures is the detail of the characters, One is holding a brain.. another is stretching out plastic intestines..  some looked like they've been undead longer than others. The Zombie Dog that's ready to attack made me laugh.  It's those type of details in Plastic Action Figures (Think retro Plastic Army Men, but as Zombies!)  that make these different.

*Ceramic Graveyard Set Not Included. 

If Zombies aren't your cup of tea check out Big Bucket's other Action Figure sets: Animal Adventure Action Figures, Civil War Soldiers, Farm Animals, Firemen, Safari Animals; Sea Creatures and Dinosaur Skeleton figures. They are available for purchase for $19.99 by visiting:, and at specialty retailers nationwide.

  • Instead of handing out big buckets of candy, Big Buckets of Monsters and Zombies are an unexpected alternative to offer trick-or-treaters.

  • Each Big Bucket comes with 100 assorted spooky action figures- including zombies, gravestones, humans, werewolves, and even Frankenstein! With over a dozen unique sculpts... down to the poses!

  • Each set of creepy creatures comes in two colors, so you can have awesome undead battles! Buckets of Zombies are also available in glow in the dark, for late night fights. Each bucket includes an assortment of durable, heavy plastic action figures, great for indoor or outdoor action-packed play and electronic-free fun!
  • Unlike the average figurine, these menacing monsters stand up on their own, and they definitely put the action in action figure.

WowWee #Tipster My First #Robot #Review #HolidayGiftGuide @WowWeeWorld #Spon

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored Post, I was compensated for my Opinion.

My 4 year old loves Tipster. Tipster is WowWee's My first Robot for ages 4+. I love that he's fast, and the controller is easy enough for younger kids to use.

Also comes with a Capsule that lid unscrews, and the Game for the interactive ladders, and Robots are stored in. It's a fun twist to Barrel of Monkeys, but it's full of Robots, Which makes it more epic.

Check out my Tipsters Sweet Moves in the video.

Here is the fun part of the Review that no one likes to show.  Installing the batteries.  It takes 4 Double AA in the Tipster Robot, and 3 AAA in the Remote Control.  Installing the batteries was as easy as unscrewing one small screw on each item, placing the batteries, and putting the screw back in.  There is a On, Off switch on back of the Tipster, and he's ready to go.

Find more WowWee products by going here, and searching for WowWee.  Lots are on sale, and there are a ton of different Robots, Even Roborapters Best Buy has some WowWee's $10.00 off!

Build-A-Bear Workshop #Review @BuildABear #HolidayGiftGuide #SantasWorkShop #Spon

Disclaimer: I received product to facilitate a review, all opinions are my own.

Build-A-Bear Workshop has my son's favorite Stuffed Animals.  Even as a newborn we had Pawlette.  It was Pawlette that created his love of Stuffed Animals. 

Our favorites tho are all the Limited Edition Friends. Right now there are Even Santa, and his Reindeer! Along with Frosty the Snow man. My little Ponies, Disneys Frozen, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other kids favorites to dress, and befriend.

During the Summer we received Toothy Shark (He was also a PUPPET) to review.  My 3 year old Loves him to pieces.  

As you can see, Toothy is pretty unique, and fun.  I love Toys that are playful, along with details.  My son examined, and started to pretend to Chomp Toothy back.

Another fun idea is to Buy Build-A-Bear Bucks, and use them in store, Click here to find a location near you. Build-A-Bear Bucks would make ideal stocking stuffers!

#PerplexusWarp #Review @PatchProducts #HolidayGiftGuide #Spon

Disclaimer: I received Product through Sverve & Patch Products to facilitate a review. All opinions, images, and video are my own.

I am impressed with how fun and competitive Perplexus Warp is. My son loves IT! Its for ages 6+ but I want to emphasis on the plus part.  It really did keep every ones attention.  Following the loops, the upside down drops, and the plastic hooks you use to help guide on the spots that have no sides to the Zones.  There are even steps to go down, and bump into Warp Drive over a steep like hill on the zone's course.

If the ball falls off, you have to begin all over again. It's not just "Oh lets barely shake it to get it back on track" Nope, even to get it at the start point you have to use a little Brain Power.  Soon as it starts, it's a turn sideways, back and forth down the middle of the white track zone.  Patchwork Products really has creatured a fun, problem solving puzzle.

I really do recommend this puzzle.  It's nice to unplug, no batteries needed, and just problem solve while thinking fast.

Don't forget to check out more from Patch Products,

@DreamTeamPets 30% Off #PromoCode #HolidayGiftGuide #Spon

This is a Sponsored Post. My son is always hugging, and sleeping with his stuffed animals, so Dream Team Pets will be a nice reward before Bed time, and I like that it helps create a positive way to maintain a healthy sleeping schedule with a Book, and stickers. 

Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves!

My Readers receive 30% Off Dream Team Pets with Promo Code: USFGUIDE

If you think The Amazing Dream Team Pets would make a great Holiday Gift for your little ones, or a little one you know, there is a 30% off Code for it! Use the code, USFGUIDE , while checking out on Amazon for the % Off.

There is a Lion, a Kitty Cat, and a Doggy.

Patch Products Toy Review, Let's Play! Pop! Pop! Piano, and Clifford Pair Up Card Game. Put the electronics down, and PLAY!

Sy is in love with his Path Products Pop! Pop! Piano.  From the time I received it to do a review for, he was infatuated with it.

Each key makes a different sound when played.  It also pops up a colored jack that matches each key.  Of course you can shake the piano and have it mix up the colors, and try to match them back where they belong by playing it.  He figured out how to flip the switch to have it play piano sound or fun sounds himself.

I know when he really likes a toy, it gets carried around, and set up like inventory with his other favorite toys. He took the plastic case off the Pop! Pop! Piano and we used it to show him different colors, and where they go.  There is really so many different ways to use the Pop! Pop! Piano.  You can even push the keys to have the kids run after the pieces when the plastic is off.  

We just started to use matching flash cards.  Sy is 3, and still doesn't talk.  But he DOES know how to match things up, and things that sounds like each other.  He will also go get his toy, that matches the card too.

The Clifford Pair Up Card game has cute Dogs, Frogs, Squirrels, Girls, Clifford Characters to pair up. Sy's favorite thing to do is pair the Dog, and the Frog together.  The plastic Clifford Dog house storage case is a nice touch to pack the cards back up when we are done playing with them.  The other flash cards he has just come in little cardboard boxes, so this one is definitely great for storage, and wear.

You can find these products, and much more for children of all ages at Patch Products.  

Check Patch Products out for yourself,

Disclaimer: I received products to facilitate a review.  Well, Sy received products to Play! and Have fun. Which he did.  Put the electronics down, and PLAY!

Plan Toys Wooden Toys #Review. #HolidayGiftGuide

PlanToys has some of the cutest, educational, recycled wood from expired rubber wood tree toys we have had the honor of reviewing.  Not only are the Wooden Toys, fun, but they are also educational along with playful colors, and activities.

The first Educational Wooden Toy my little one wanted to play with (Yes he saw the boxes, and immediately wanted to play with them.) was the Stacking Wooden Bear.  What I found unique about this toy was that each stacking circle piece, had a different shape wooden piece inside too.  It's like a puzzle instead of a puzzle.  

Once put together, the Stacking Bear Wooden Toy looks like this.  

Then we played with the My Mood Memo.  What is different about this wooden toy is the vast face/emotion shapes that come with it.  Also an Emotion Color wheel.  It is helping a lot to show my Sy his different emotions, and expressions.  

Like this one,  He was upset that I would not let him climb the TV, so I showed him what the angry one expressed.  He is learning, which makes me happy.  He has sensory problems, and toys like these mean a lot to us.  He is great at figuring things out in front of him.

More info about PlanToys! Kids can’t help love these classic wood pieces and PlanToys’ super green design is something we can get excited about as parents.

For over 30 years, PlanToys® has been recycling the wood from expired rubber wood trees to create beautiful wooden toys that inspire children’s imaginations and promote a commitment to sustainable play for generations to come.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Color Popz! Jazzy Frog! Check out his cool shades!

We've turned into such the Build-A-Bear Workshop loving family!  To where, I am always on the look out for what is new in stores, and what promos they have on the website now.  The cool thing about Build-A-Bear, even if you don't have a kid, you can still have your own! No matter at what age you are.  Personally, my favorites are the Hello Kittys.  My son, loves the Bunnies, and Frogs.  My husband, keeps it old school, and is a fan of the Curly Bear.  I'm sure something else will come out, and I'll adore that too.  

We recently received the 18" Jazzy Frog that is in the new  Build-A-Bear Color Popz Line to review! He comes with some retro green shades.  My son never cared for Sun glasses before, but when his Cool dude Jazzy came, he started wearing sun glasses too. Love, love, love how playful the Color Popz collection is!! We call him his Jazzy Fresh Frog.   I really believe Jazzy matches Sy's personality! Bright, Playful, and just completely AWESOME.  They also have matching summer sandals.  

If you've never been to a Build-A-Bear, you can also go online to, and find some great deals that way too.  After chosing what member you want to adopt into your family (comes with birth certificate too.) you also have the option to "Dress Me" next to the "Add To Basket" button.  Which makes it extremely easy to find an outfit for your personal style.  I also like the fact that there are Sales too! So make sure to check out the Sale Den for 20-50% off Sales.

Don't forget you can also find Build-A-Bear on Facebook, and  Build-A-Bear on Twitter.
