Over father's day weekend my family went to New Jersey to visit my Mom Mom, Pop Pop, Aunt, Uncle and cousins. It got a bit cool out so we all took a break from the pool. We weren't sure what to do, so I pulled out a new game I just got, Stuff Happens. It said it was for 13 and up, so the little kids paired up with the older ones playing. We had the … [Read more...]

I just wanted toshare a couple of fun photos of my 5 year old nephew playing with the game Gooey Louie over the weekend. This game is hysterical - you have to pull boogers out of his nose to play the game. One person will pull "the" booger that causes his brain to pop out of his head and shoot into the air. My guys played this with their cousin … [Read more...]

Since Mother Nature decided to dump 30 inches on our little neck of the woods over the weekend, we've had a lot of indoor family bonding time. Thankfully the power held steady so there was Wifi for us all to pass the time in a variety of ways but when the kids weren't jumping in snow banks or playing Minecraft, they were looking for fun things to … [Read more...]

My boys have always been into those books with hidden pictures or where you have to seek and find something on the page. And a couple of years ago, we had tried out an Eye Found It! game from Wonder Forge and have been playing it for years so I'm looking forward to giving Cole (9) this latest Eye Found It! game - Journey Through Time on … [Read more...]

Is anyone out there playing the new Skylanders Trap Team yet?  It came out last week and I feel like I haven't been hearing as much buzz as I have in the past. We have yet to dive in.  My youngest (and the Skylanders guru in the house) turns 8 in early November so we always hold out  for his birthday to open up the latest version of the game. … [Read more...]

Cole and I have been playing this one with the same level of addiction I was playing Candy Crush last year.   It's a brand new app and game called Panda PandaMonium  and it's a little like Majong meets Candy Crush.  You're making matches, have goals to achieve and the ultimate goal each round is to save the pandas who are trapped in the … [Read more...]

So we're currently on vacation at the beach with some friends and I broke out Tapple a couple of nights ago.  It was a game that came in my Sweet Suite gift box and we thought we'd give it a try one night.  It's our new addiction!  This quick and fun game is great for both kids and parents and we've been playing it after hours adults only … [Read more...]

It's so much fun when your tot hits that age when you can finally start playing interactive games with them (and maybe help them win!). We were sent a few games from Wonder Forge to play and review. This prompted our family and some of my willing girlfriends to sit down with almost three year old Fiona and PLAY! The Jake and the Never Land … [Read more...]
