Back in December, I attended the Chester County Moms Toys for Tots Holiday Extravaganza – a local event here in the Philadelphia area.  They had a great swag bag full of goodies for attendees.  One of the items in the bag was one of these Squatz Fizz n Find toys.  I promptly set it aside in a closet and forgot about it.

Until last week.  In an all too familiar moment (me on a poorly scheduled conference call with kids banging on the door), I handed over the sample Squatz Fizz n Find to my boys.  And shockingly, they got quiet.

Let me explain: they only get quiet in limited number of situations:

1.)  They found the Sharpies and are decorating the walls.

2.) Hell froze over.

3.) A huge wormhole opened up in the playroom and swallowed them whole.

4.) They’re intrigued by a really cool toy that has captured their interest.

Luckily for everyone involved, this instance was #4.  I found them in the kitchen with my husband, having just dropped the Squatz Fizz n Find into warm water.  This toy is basically a tablet that fizzes, dissolves and then reveals a smaller character.  You never know which one you’re going to get – and they are relatively cheap for a little bit of fun (around $5 depending on where you find them.  This 2-pack on Amazon is $8.35.)


  1. This might not be for everyone but for those that it can help, I am willing to share. First, this is not a fairy tale and, by the way, What’s the difference between a northern fairytale and a southern fairytale? A northern fairytale begins “Once upon a time…” A southern fairytale begins “Y’all ain’t gonna believe this shit…”. Anyway, If you do any type of web marketing then you are probably aware of the latest Google changes. The thing is, it is still easy to rank websites if you have the right tools. What you need, is to get a wide variety of links from a wide variety of sources. This new software does just that. It harnesses the power of blogs platforms, bookmarking sites, link wheels, web 2.0 sites, social sites, article directories, press releases, rss feeds and directories, forums with profiles and blog networks. It features a slow release campaign builder that allows you to set things up months in advance so you do the work once and it keeps pumping links and rankings for weeks and months to come, automatically. This is very powerful stuff. Take a look…
