Family Game Night with ALEX Brand Toys

I am reveling in summer. I am loving the sunshine and the warm temperatures. And while it is trying at times (hey - I'm being real here!), it's amazing having the extra time at home with my boys. After the long winter we had (hello cold and snow!), they can't get enough time outside, running in the grass and soaking up the sun.

This summer especially, now that the boys are older, we are working on setting aside special days and nights for family time each week. These times are for quality time, whether it's a day trip to a local attraction or a movie night with popcorn. 

One of my favorite ways to enjoy a night with my boys is to have a Game Night. We grab take out and pick up fun snacks, then sit around the living room and play round after round of games. Sometimes it gets heated (we are a competative family) but it usually ends in a lot of laughter.

ALEX brand toys has an amazing assortment of toys perfect for Family Game Night. These are a few ALEX has given me a chance to do with my family:

Summer Travel Fun with ALEX Toys at Sweet Suite

Summer is almost here - and I am loving it! One of the things I love about summer is more time for fun adventures. Fun adventures means traveling! Traveling can be a lot of fun but also daunting with kids. I recently shared a post about the must-have travel products when traveling with kids. And these are important items to pick up before your next road trip!

But of all the essential things, kids need travel-friendly toys. Have you ever tried to play a board game or draw in the car?

Let's just say it can become a total mess and leave kids (and parents!) in tears!

I am excited that one of my favorite toy companies, Alex Toys, will be showcasing their travel-friendly toys at Sweet Suite this year!  Attendees will get a chance to see the toys in person and get a feel for why they the best travel toys around!

Here is a snapshot of some of the toys to put on your list before your next trip:

The LEGO Movie Books

Lego_Movie_Books.jpg

The LEGO Movie Books

My life will never be the same since watching The LEGO movie. My 6 year old: OBSESSED. From quoting the movie to talking about how #EverythingIsAwesome!!!

I love how LEGO has taken something as simple as building blocks and taken them to a new level of interactive. As a parent, I also appreciate the positive message the movie bestows to it's viewers.  Ok.  Let me totally come clean here.  YES.  I am personally obsessed with the movie too.  And YES.  When I did the segment on Fox 29 I did have LEGO pieces made out of KRAGLE.  Whatcha gonna do now?  Heh.  

One of the things that Boston loves is connecting to his older cousin Tyler and talking LEGO's.  Tyler and Boston are the only boys - so Boston really looks up to him!  (So yes - we do have Hudson - but he's still in baby mode lol)  Tyler sends Boston little packages of LEGO awesome often & one of the things he loves the most is the LEGO sticker books!  They are fabulous!  I'm always so amazed at how he knows who all the characters are. 

With the new LEGO Movie - comes new LEGO books!  

So, when I was asked to review the LEGO books, I was THRILLED about the opportunity! 

“The LEGO® Movie: The Essential Guide,” ($12.99)

Lego_Movie_Book.jpg

For fans of the movie, this essential guide is a must-have! Recommended for kids 6 and older, this book is jam-packed with illustrations from the movie. The book also explores the characters in-depth and provides behind-the-scenes information for even the littlest fans. Boston loved learning all the fun details of The LEGO movie!

“The LEGO® Movie: The Ultimate Sticker Collection,” ($12.99)

All I have to say is, "WHAT KID DOESN'T LOVE STICKERS?" Answer: NONE. This book is like a more compact version of the Essential Movie Guide (with information on characters, location spreads and vehicles), but also offers more than 1,000 reusable stickers!  So kids can create their own LEGO adventures on the colorful pages throuhgout the book.  A good way to use imaginations! 

Lego_Movie_Ultimate_Sticker_Guide.jpg

“The LEGO® Movie: Calling All Builders,” ($3.99)

As the mom of a soon-to-be First Grader (be still, my heart!), I am loving that DK publishers have released books that work on fundamental reading skills. These books are part of a multi-level reading program, which is perfect for my budding reader. Calling All Builders is great for fans of the movie, as it's a simple Level 1 reading book that follows the movie's storyline. I like that Boston can work on reading most of it, but there is still room for me to participate with him.

“The LEGO® Movie: Awesome Adventures,” ($3.99)

 This book is the Level 2 counterpart to Calling All Builders. It also follows the movie storyline, but involves longer sentences and more challenging vocabulary. I like that BOston can work on the Level 1 LEGO book and once he has mastered it, has a new book to challenge him. And, my boys love LEGOS. So they are already instantly engaged and and Boston is eager and willing to read (YAY!)

To keep up with the LEGO books, follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Radio Flyer Cyclone Review

Whoa!  We just got the Radio Flyer Cyclone in to review and I have to tell you - it is fabulous!!

I wasn't really sure what to expect but knew with the Radio Flyer name - it would be TOP notch.  This product isn't even out yet but it will be in February and available at RadioFlyer.com & also Toys R Us.   The Cyclone is meant for kids ages 3-7 and up to 70 pounds.  (Yes. I was disappointed when I realized I wouldn't be able to try it out. ha)

The Cyclone is a hand powered ride that also allows the driver to do a 360 degree spin.  The wheels are GIGANTIC and offer a smoother riding experience.   The solid steel frame and wheel castor in the rear really gives this wild looking thing a smooth ride!

It took us some time to be able to stand the cold but today we finally were able to get out.  Not too long to freeze - but long enough to fall in love!  He's dying to get that thing back outside for the spring.

Check out our cold but fun trial for the new Cyclone by Radio Flyer!

Real Mom Holiday Gift Guide: Recent Toys

Recent Toys specializes in producing innovative, mentally stimulating, cutting-edge brainteasers. We strive to ensure that all of our puzzles are simple to understand, yet thought-provoking in their solutions, and open to a broad age range so that children and adults of all ages can play. While all of our puzzles are characterized by high-quality, edgy designs, and clever game play, each puzzle is unique in concept and offers an entirely new challenge.
