Express Your Creative Side with Clickformers #Giveaway

In the past, we have told you how much we love Magformers. This year we were asked to review another construction toy that is made by the same company. This new construction toy clicks together to make many different creations and is called Clickformers.

Clickformers are very secure when clicked together properly. In fact, the only issue we have with them is that they can be a challenge to unclick. You can purchase Clickformers in sets that include wheels and colorful pieces of different shapes and sizes to build something from the booklet or your own unique design.

We have Clickformers on our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide at Mommy Ramblings. You can also enter the giveaway to win a 50 piece set of Clickformers below.

Watch Ya’ Mouth Throwdown Edition For The Big Mouths on Your Holiday List!

A few weeks ago, I told you about a different game for your family that you might want to consider for your next family game night. The Watch Ya’ Mouth Throwdown Edition would also be a fun gift for kids and families on your holiday gift list.

The Watch Ya’ Mouth Throwdown Edition is the evolution of the original, wildly popular, hilarious Watch Ya’ Mouth game.

Rather than just speak phrases, players now go head-to-head with hilarious and challenging tasks – while wearing mouthpieces. Throwdown Edition takes competition – and laughter – to the next level and builds on the multigenerational gaming phenomena.

We had some time to try this game out and I will admit, while I thought it looked fun, the germophobe in me was wondering about everyone putting this stuff in their mouth and the logistics of cleaning it. This is a thought that never occurred to my kids or husband, lol. Apart from that, it is a very fun game but one that I have sterilization duty after.

Throwdown Edition has already been Awarded Top Holiday Toy of 2017 by Toy Insider & selected for the 2017 Amazon Holiday Toy List. We have added it to Mommy Ramblings’ 2017 Holiday Gift Guide.

The icing on this cake is that you can save 15% Off when you use the Coupon Code 15THROWDOWN when you check out on Amazon.

Inspire Future Engineers with the Gadgets & Gizmos Invention Kit #Giveaway

We really like to choose toys for our kids that are fun and educational. That is why when we saw the Gadgets & Gizmos Invention Kit, we knew it was one that our kids would love and let’s face it, I knew my husband would love it too!

This is the ultimate kit for every aspiring inventor! The open-ended kit is packed with parts that kids can mix and match to make tons of gadgets and gizmos.

The step-by-step guide is easy to follow to create 8 projects, like a catapult, helicopter, hydraulic lift car and so much more including their own unique creations.

When they build and invent with this kit, they are exploring exciting science and engineering concepts. My son Ethan is interested in becoming an engineer so this is very exciting to him. The first thing they built with this 180 piece kit is an air powered rocket launcher. After building it, the testing it was super fun for all the boys!

We love this kit so much we are adding it to Mommy Ramblings’ 2017 Holiday Gift Guide.

Classic Toys Like Baby Dolls Are a Cherished Part of Childhood-#Giveaway #Corolle

If you follow Mommy Ramblings you know we love Corolle Dolls! Corolle has been a premium doll brand with dolls designed in France for over 30 years.

Every Corolle doll is designed with great care, love and affection because Corolle knows that a doll is more than a toy; it is a cherished part of childhood:  A doll encourages a child to explore different roles through caring for and sharing hopes, dreams and experiences with an always-understanding friend and playmate.

In the past we have introduced you to several dolls in their amazing line as well as had some very popular giveaways! I am so excited to share Lia Interactive Baby Doll and Goodnight My Mini Calin.

Lia Interactive Baby Doll

Let’s take a look at Lia first. Lia is an extra sweet, large interactive My Classique Corolle doll, who, with a simple touch, acts like a real baby. She can speak 13 phrases and sounds in 4 different languages (English, Italian, French and Spanish).

She has a face, arms and legs made of soft to the touch vinyl that has the trademark delicate vanilla scent Corolle is known for.

She has a cloth body and wears leggings with a long-sleeve T-shirt and sweet headband. She has sleep close eyes. She comes with a bottle, spoon, potty and 3 bracelets that change the language she speaks. Lia can wear any of the 17 inch doll clothing and accessories in the My Classique Corolle Collection. She is made for ages 3 and up.

You can see exactly how she works in my video review below:

Good Night My Mini Calin

Good Night My Mini Calin is such a precious set! I remember how I loved little dolls like this as a child that had accessories and clothing. They were so fun because you could bring them anywhere with you.

The Good Night My Mini Calin gift set includes an 8 inch mini doll, a pair of pajamas and a sleeper – perfect to make up stories and replay the bedtime ritual. This Little doll has a head and limbs made of the incredibly soft, delicately scented vanilla. These gift sets are designed for ages 18 months and older.

More Gift Ideas For The PJ Masks Fans on Your Holiday Gift List!

I am pretty stressed lately, we are in the middle of several home renovations and one of them is our kitchen. During the holiday season, I love to bake. This year, our kitchen is in the process of being demoed so that is not possible. We are doing the best we can and plan to do a lot of baking once our new kitchen is complete.

Our kids are feeling it too, I try to do things to make it as normal as possible. As temps get colder, playing outside is not always something we can do. As a PJ Masks Official Blogger, I get a sneak peek at the newest products. I was thrilled recently to receive a box full of goodies and want to share them with you. If you are still doing your holiday shopping and have a PJ Masks fan on your list, you might see something they would like.

The PJ Masks Color & Activity Book from Crayola includes hours of creative fun featuring PJ Masks favorites Connor/Catboy, Amaya/Owlette & Greg/Gekko. The Activity book includes over 30 pages of coloring pages and activities. Great for coloring at home, or taking on-the-go. My kids love coloring these pictures and it gives them a great outlet for their creative energy. Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us.

If you are traveling this holiday season, the PJ Mask Lunch Box Tin with Handle Themed Jigsaw Puzzle is perfect for fun on-the-go. This tin has a convenient handle and I love that it stores the 24 piece puzzle. Once completed  the puzzle forms an overall dimension of 15 inches x 12.5 inches. From Cardinal Games this set is available at Toys “R” Us.

Memory games are one of my favorite games to play with my kids. PJ Masks characters are the stars of this Wonder Forge PJ Masks Matching Game. This is the classic memory game where you compete with each other to match the most pairs. You can choose to use as many pairs as you want in order to customize the game to your children’s age. There are pictures of Catboy, Owlette, Gekko, Romeo, Luna Girl and more!

 

Race toward justice with this board book shaped like Catboy’s Cat-Car with wheels that really move!  To The Cat-Car, everyone, it’s time for super cat speed! PJ Masks are on their way, into the night to save the day! Kids will love racing around with this interactive board book that includes moveable wheels to really make the Cat-Car go! This is a great book for your child to take wherever they go.

And in more SUPER news, I’m so excited to share that a brand-new PJ Masks app, Super City Run, was just launched on Thursday, December 8!  With the new app, kids can run through the maze-style city as their favorite PJ Masks hero trying to catch the villains and collect the items they’ve been stealing – while keeping an eye out for any traps they might have set with their pesky sidekicks. The PJ Masks Super City Run app allows for new game play every time, so the fun is never-ending! Find it on iTunes and Google Play.

So did you see anything you like? Let me know in the comments.
