Zoom Into Fun With Zoomer Hedgiez From Spin Master #Review #Giveaway


When it comes to shopping for toys for my children, Spin Master is one of the first companies I shop with.  For the past 21 years, Spin Master has dazzled and amazed kids with their fun and easy to use toys.  I received the cutest little addition to the Spin Master family and my daughter just can’t get enough of it!


Meet Tumbles, part of the Zoomer Hedgiez line.  The Zoomer Hedgiez are the cutest and cuddliest pets that kids will adore.  Hedgiez have a life of their own and love to entertain.  Pet their heads and they really roll — up to three times!  Nose down, paws up, Hedgiez love to perform headstands.  Press their noses to make them wiggle, whistle, blow you a kiss, and other cute sounds!  These furry friends love to be tickled.  Flip them over, tickle their tummies and they’ll curl up and giggle!  Each Hedgy has their own style, complete with soft, pet-able fur. They come with their own combs for brushing, and have pretty light-up eyes.


These fully interactive Hedgiez are loveable, huggable hedgehogs that just want to be your new BFF.  Jade loved Tumbles the moment she came out of the box and her eyes lit up (literally!).  These Hedgiez make the perfect playtime pal.  Whether you’re ready to rock and roll or cuddle up for some rest, your Hedgiez pal will always be there by your side.


Hedgiez love to perform cool tricks!  They’ll happily do a summersault or headstand, or even curl up into a ball when their tummies are tickled.  You can give your Zoomer Hedgiez an individual appearance using the comb that comes with your new pal.  They loved to be brushed and it helps bring out the brilliance in their super-soft, shiny fur and show off their sensational new style.  There are a few different styles of Zoomer Hedgiez so you can pick the one that’s just right for your little one.

Imagination Come To Life With The Skylanders Creator App #Review #Skylanders


If you haven’t tried out the Skylanders Creator App…YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE MISSING!  I had such a blast helping my son create his own custom character to play with his Skylanders Imaginators game!!   With the Skylanders Creator app, creation will be brought directly to your fingertips and let you create Skylanders on the go!  (I’ve found that this is a great way to keep the kids entertained in the car.  We live in a rural place and the closest store is a 30 minute drive one-way.  Each of the kids’ tablets have the Skylanders Creator App and they love it!)


You can create an all new character directly from the app or even transfer an imaginator that you’ve built in your Skylanders Imaginators game!  There are a few different custom options available but my son was really eager to be able to build his very own character.  I was really surprised by the numerous ways to customize your character and I took screenshots through the process to show you all just how unique and different you can make your character.


The first few steps are the basic customization of the character.  You can choose each feature separately to create a character that will be absolutely unique to you.  Design your character from the eyes to the ears, chest, body and even tail if you want one.  My son had a hard time choosing, so be prepared for a lengthy process!


After you choose the basics of your character you can choose unique weapons, shoulder guards, leg guards, and even make your character as large or as small as you want them to be.


When I told you that you can customize everything, I meant EVERYTHING!  You can pick your own custom colors, themes, and give the character a unique name.  You can pick the phrase you want them to say when placed on the portal as well as even change the voice they say it with.  My son absolutely loved the phrase he settled on, “Fueled by, pizza!”, haha!

The waiting period for the character to arrive is probably the hardest part about the whole process.  It can take 4-6 weeks to receive your customized character so be sure to plan around birthdays or holidays if you’re giving one as a gift.  As soon as our character arrives I will update with pictures of our 3D figure!

Give The Gift Of Fun This Holiday Season With Our Generation Dolls #Review #HolidayGiftGuide


Our Generation Dolls are the perfect companion for any little girl.  These dolls are so much more than a doll…they are a way for girls to express what matters to them, and they help encourage little girls to follow their dreams and become who they want to be.  Our Generation is giving little girls a voice, helping make the next generation stronger and more empowered than ever.


OG Dolls is a brand I’m sure many of you are familiar with.  I’ve shared my daughter’s love for OG Dolls with you all a few times in the past.  This holiday season Jade and I got to try out a new doll and Jade couldn’t have been happier.


I LOVE giving Jade a new doll, she is always so happy!  The look on Jade’s face when she saw Amya in that box was priceless.  Amya is a Chalk Hair Doll that allows you to add your own splash of color to the world.  Amya comes with 1 dress, 1 headband, 1 pair of underwear, 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of socks, 3 application sponges, 4 hair chalk compacts, and 1 instruction booklet.


Jade and I both love how easy it is to add the streaks of color into Amya’s hair.  Easy use for little hands = frustration-free play which this mom loves!  After adding in the colorful streaks Jade had me braid Amya’s hair to show off the pretty rainbow she’d created.

The world is your little one’s pallet and with OG Dolls she can add color to the world in her own unique and expressive way.  This holiday season every little girl deserves to have her very own Our Generation Doll under the tree.

Li’l Woodzeez…Lighting Up Children’s Lives This Holiday Season #Review #HolidayGiftGuide


Li’l Woodzez are some of the cutest characters ever imagined from a happy place called Honeysuckle Hollow.  All of the woodland creatures work together in Honeysuckle Hollow and help each other as well as help the environment.   Each animal family has a job to do and each day is another adventure.  There are different play sets available so you can be sure your little one will enjoy their favorite Honeysuckle Hollow spot.


My daughter fell head-over-heels in love with her Li’l Woodzeez Happy Camper and we were so excited to try a couple new Li’l Woodzeez toys!



The Li’l Woodzeez Family Tree House is a great place for all of the Honeysuckle Hollow friends to gather…there’s so much fun to be had!  This 3-story home comes with all of the interactive accessories your animal families could dream of.  There’s a sun chair and parasol to catch some sun on a nice day, 2 different slides to get to your next destination faster, a swing for the kids to have fun, and even a ladder to get from the bottom to the top (or top to bottom) in a flash.  The beauty of the Family Tree House is that you can use any Li’l Woodzeez characters with it and let your imagination run wild.


The Skyhopper Panda Family are some of the more adventurous Li’l Woodzeez characters.  Roger (dad) and Flora (mom) along with their kids Liv and Skip work together at the Sunny Skies Airport.  They make sure each passenger has an enjoyable flight and gets to their destination comfortable and on time.  Liv’s idea for a Junior Pilots Club is a fun new way for her to share the excitement of flying with her fellow Honeysuckle Hollow Friends.

The Heathnuggle Bear Family are a family of 4 just like the Skyhoppers.  Todd (dad) and Barbara (mom) help out in the Healing Paws Health Center along with their children Hazel and Romeo.  Dr’s Barbara and Todd always make their patients feel better with the help of the younger Heathnuggles.  Whenever a woodland creature is sick or hurt it’s the Heathnuggle family to the rescue!  The littlest member of the family is pretty smart and will prove to be an amazing doctor someday…just like Mom and Dad.

Make the special little one on your shopping list light up with joy when they unwrap their new Li’l Woodzeez playsets and characters.
