Santa may be bringing my oldest the Dark Knight Battle Stations Playset this Christmas. I liked this toy because its four toys in one depending on how they transform it. It comes with a Batman and Joker and looks like the Batmobile. It can transform into four different places: a skyscraper, Joker's Hideout, a bank and a Gotham City rooftop. It … [Read more...]

I think I just finished addressing last yearís holiday cards. This year I am using Brella Baby for my cards. They offer the whole stationery package and I really am liking their clean modern designs. I ordered holiday cards and nice pre-printed gift tags. Yes, I am too lazy to write my own name. Believe me, it does save time when ensconced in … [Read more...]

I don't know how or when it happened. But somewhere in the past, I don't know, 35 years, racing became cool again. Okay, maybe I've just always been a girly-girl who didn't realize that racing is, infact, cool, but when I was in my teens working in a video store and the manager put on his fave-from-childhood anime (Japanese cartooning which was SO … [Read more...]

Yes, I did just say that. And I am that enthusiastic. ZinkoTek has created the coolest, most awesome, most fabulous building set that my kids and I have ever played with. That's saying a lot, huh?! Do you remember being a kid, that thrill you would feel when your creations were life sized? It was certainly fun to build with blocks or whatever. But … [Read more...]

I've been remiss in not posting about this one sooner. We got chatting about it on the Message Boards a few weeks ago and I'm happy to see it listed at the low price still. For any Wii owners and basically anyone with access to a Wii and kids between the age of 2-12, this is such a steal and cheap gift for the holidays: Lego Star Wars for the … [Read more...]

Last January, we got a Wii. Soon after, I reviewed the Go, Diego, Go Dinosaur Rescue game for the Wii. It's an ideal game for a preschooler. For starters, Diego can't "die," which makes it a lot tamer than most electronics games. If he goes to close to danger, the game simply has him hanging on the edge on his toes until the player pulls him … [Read more...]
