A Super Fun Spin On An Old Classic…The Oregon Trail: Hunt For Food

logo_pressman-min

TheOregonTrailHuntForFood.jpg

If you remember playing the game Oregon Trail as a kid on huge, bulky computers with floppy disks, then congratulations…you had the best childhood ever!  In the original game, you play as a covered wagon party of pioneers and head out west from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette River and valley in Oregon.  You first had to stock up on provisions, and then, while traveling, make decisions such as when to rest, how much food to eat, etc.  The Oregon Trail incorporated simulation elements and planning ahead, along with discovery and adventure, as well as mini-game-like activities (hunting and floating down the Dalles River).  The new The Oregon Trail: Hunt For Food card game from Pressman Toys is perfect for kids who grew up playing the original game, as well as for my own children who have no experience with the original game but LOVE playing this new card game.

TheOregonTrailHuntForFood2.jpg

In The Oregon Trial: Hunt For Food, you will work together with your fellow travelers to collect 600 pounds of meat.  However, you will face many deadly threats during your hunt: you might get bitten by a snake, break your leg, or get trapped by obstacles and never make it back to the trail.  Each roll can be a life-or-death matter, and the whole family has fun working together to keep everyone alive until the end.  If at least one member of your party survives to collect 600 pounds of meat, everyone wins…but it is definitely harder than it sounds!  If you have the original The Oregon Trail Card Game, you can play this game as an extension or on its own.  This add-on feature will allow you to carry your food and supplies to the original game…however, if you die in this game, both games are over.

Are you up for the challenge? Bring this classic computer game to life and gather your fellow travelers for The Oregon Trail: Hunt for Food Card Game which you can find exclusively at Target.

It should be no surprise to any of you that when I started looking for Halloween costumes for my kiddos that Oriental Trading was my first place to go.  Sometimes shopping for the kids can be pretty frustrating, most places either have a lousy selection or don’t have the correct sizes…but thanks to Oriental Trading I was able to find costumes for both of my kiddos that will be dressing up this year in one place, and even in the right sizes too!

OrientalTradingCostumes.jpg

This year, Batman is something that my kiddos are SUPER in to.  When my son said he wanted to be Batman, and my daughter said she wanted to be Batgirl, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to find what they were looking for but I was pleasantly surprised!  I was able to find BOTH costumes, and the addition of the Bat Girl costume being pink was a huge plus in my daughter’s eyes.

OrientalTradingCostumes2.jpg

Doesn’t Jade look just absolutely adorable?  The Girls’ Pink Deluxe Batgirl Costume was exactly what she was looking for, and then some.  This costume is available in a variety of sizes, so no matter what size your little one wears, they can dress up as the superhero they dream of being.  Everything your little one needs to transform into a superhero is included with the costume so no extra purchases…awesome!

Save Your Home From End-Of-Summer Boredom with Max Traxxx

MaxTraxxxTracerRacersLogo.jpg

 

If you’re looking for some end of summer fun, Max Traxxx from Skullduggery is here to save those last days of summer and add a whole new level of fun.  Your kids will LOVE these Max Traxxx Tracer Racers!  The racers utilize Light Trail Technology as they blaze streaks of light on Skullduggery patented glow-in-the-dark track.  Each Tracer Racer beams down purple light rays from its undercarriage onto the track that’s specially engineered to emit glow remnants long after the racer has passed…it seems like just as the track is fading, the racers come back around and light up the track for endless glowing fun.

MaxTraxx.jpg

 

I received the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers Remote Control Twin Loop set from my friends over at Skullduggery and my kids couldn’t wait to get this thing put together so they could start having fun.

MaxTraxxRacing.jpg

The setup of the track was super simple…just a few minutes and we were ready to have fun!  (Keep in mind, you will need 8 AA batteries, 4 for each controller, and it’s best to put the batteries in the controller and charge the cars before you assemble the track so there’s no wait time to start the fun.)  Choose your track, racers and loops, take into a dimly lit room and your kids will be ready to set the darkness ablaze.  We used this track first in the living room so we could take some decently lit pictures, but the fun in the dark is even more incredible!  My 5 year old daughter was able to race alongside my 12 year old son, so no matter if the racer is a beginner or advanced, there is fun for all!  The variable speed remote control cars and adjustable track heights allow racers to control course difficulty which is perfect for household’s like mine with various ages of children.  (Or just silly cats that like to watch the cars…our cat even spins her head in a circle watching the cars as they go through the loops, haha!)

MaxTraxxx4.jpg

As you can see, the track really does light up really well, and stores the light energy for a considerable amount of time.  With 2 glow-in-the-dark dual loops, 4 dual glow-in-the-dark corners, over 36 feet of glow-in-the-dark track, and 2 remote control Tracer Racers, your kids will have hours and hours of fun.

Save these last days of summer from boredom with Skullduggery and Max Traxxx!  From now until 8/30/17, if you purchase a Max Traxxx Tracer Racer Set  (Double Loop, Infinity Loop and Police Chase) you will receive an extra RC Tracer Racer Set for free ($30 value)!  How awesome is that?!  To receive the extra RC Tracer Racer Set for free you will need to email proof of purchase from Amazon to skorders@skullduggery.com with purchase date between 6/21/17-8/30-17.
