Do you remember playing the earlier versions of Donkey Kong? (Jumping over barrels and collecting bananas?) We received a copy of the new Donkey Kong Country – Tropical Freeze game for Nintendo Switch to review. Playing Donkey Kong with my kids has brought back so many fond memories of the game. I loved the original, and it is actually still one of my favorite of all times. In this version you can play up to to two players. There are no timers, but you’re still looking for hidden treasure and the stages get more and more challenging. My kids and I can spend hours finding all the hidden features. I … READ MORE

Product Testing/Review. All opinions are my own. My son is entering middle school next year while his younger brother attends elementary school. They will be on different schedules, and I might start subbing next year. We still have a couple of months of summer to figure out commuting whether it be bussing or carpooling, etc. I would love some tips if you’d like to share them with me. I have considered letting him to walk to school and back, but I am not 100% convinced neither I nor he is ready for it. I have thought about ordering him a bus (since it is not provided for free where we … READ MORE
The month of May is Ride Your Bike Month. There are so many benefits to riding your bike to work or school. It saves money on gas, and it is also eco-friendly. Some people ride for exercise, and it becomes their way of life. I see my neighbor fine-tuning his bike almost every day, and he rides every morning before work. He is in his fifties, and he looks fit! The children in the neighborhood are starting to ride their bikes again which reminds me we need to check the condition of our bikes again. Honestly, I don’t think my family do enough outdoors. We all have bikes and should be … READ MORE
How sweet is this ride? We received a test product of DYNACRAFT’s BMW i8 Concept Car to review. My kids have loved their ride-ons since they were little, but this one is fancy and new so they were excited to give it a test drive. As we pulled it out of the box and removed the packaging, we were impressed how detailed it was. They even have BMW wheel caps! You may already know, the BMW i8 is an expensive $150,000 luxury dream sports car, and Dynacraft did a great job replicating it.
Do you remember playing with big cardboard boxes when you were children? I have four other siblings, and I recall a time when we taped two boxes together, cut out windows and doors, then played with it until it fell apart. Now when I see my own children doing it, I get it. It’s fun, and they feel like it is their own personal space. Especially the younger one, he drags it up and down the stairs, put all his toys in it, hides in it, and wants to sleep in it with his pillows and blanket. He was upset when his Dad wanted to throw it away.

After … READ MORE
