What Other Say About The Fisher-Price Thomas The Train: TrackMaster Sky-High Bridge Jump Playset

Purchased for my 3 year old grandson who loves it. He tells everyone that “Thomas jumps over the water”, even if they don’t know what he is talking about.

The directions were very detailed which made setup easy. This toy has been played with a lot since it was given to my grandson as a gift. He and his sister are having a good time playing with it!

Get on board with Thomas! We love Thomas! Never-ending fun for both boys and girls. The Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Thomas’ Sky-High Bridge Jump does not disappoint. This toy has held my child’s attention for hours. After days, it is still being used and enjoyed. The Track was easy to put together. Pieces go together seamlessly as expected in the quality by Mattel. You must have a very large space to assemble and play with this toy. The set is HUGE! The main tower is about 4 feet tall and the whole track 8 feet long. The action and play is mind-blowing. Thomas is lifted from the helicopter landing to the top of the tower in a spiral action courtesy of Harold. He flies down the ramp and goes airborne. A well-functioning landing cradle Thomas with a cushioning spring and gets him back on track. He pushes barrels and goes thru the building and the process begins over. Lots of action for both a child and an adult. I was amazed at how well this product works. At first glance, I assumed there would be issues with the engine chugging his way upward or with Thomas going airborne and not landing in the right place. The toy is well constructed in both safety and fun for all. After continued use, everything is still functioning as new. Simply amazing. A must have for any Thomas fan! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

his is a superb track. My kids were playing with it for ever since i got it! its also easy to put together. Its pretty long and lots of fun for everyone. Thomas it also a classic that everyone loves. This will make a great Christmas present which its just around the corner. Colorful, fun, easy to use this is just amazing and all form a trusted brand that we all grew up with! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I received the The Thomas Sky High Bridge Jump just about 2 weeks ago. My 4 yr old grandson was totally amazed at the size of this Thomas set! The set took us 1 hr 20 minutes to set up but it is definitely worth the wait. The instructions were easy to follow and the parts snapped together with no tooks required! This set came with a Thomas engine with decorative sparks on the sides. I and my grandson were surprised at how quiet this Thomas train is while going around the track. I was impressed with the quality of Harold that is included with this set. I was expecting it to be flimsy but it is not. The entire set is made well and works awesome! My grandson has many other engines from the Thomas collection and they all went down and made the jump as well. Since my grandson has a few other Thomas the train sets we hooked them up to this sky high bridge jump and my grandson was thrilled! I know my grandson will be enjoying this set for a few more years!

Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

For Christmas 2016 consider the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel. As Grandparents we always like to give gifts that are going to be used for several years. The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel is definitely this type of gift. We owned one of these marvelous easels for many years. We first bought one when our first-born grandson was two years old. We only parted with it when our youngest granddaughters were seven. It was part of our playthings for eleven years and stood the test of time extremely well.
Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel Although it can be adjusted to a child’s height we never found the need to do this. We loved the fact that when it was not in use it folded and could be stored in a relatively small space. The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel is two sided, with one side a chalkboard and the other a dry-erase board. In the middle of the board there is a dowel that hold the roll of paper. It will fit either a 12” or an 18” roll of art paper. The paper can be pulled up and fastened on one or the other side of the easel. There are four plastic clips that help keep the paper in place. A paper cutter is included but I must say we usually just ripped the paper off. Each side of the easel has trays to contain paint, brushes, chalk, markers, pencils or pens. It is important to have dry-erase pens, as markers will not clean off either side.

What Is In the Box of the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

    Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

  • Dry-erase Board
    Chalk Board
    Stand
    Screws with plastic knobs

My 4 year granddaughter was so excited with this easel. At preschool this is her favorite thing to do. Her 2 year old sister is excited to paint to. Their daddy, my son, has an art project and he is using it too. Everybody is loving the easel!

Love, love, love, this easel. Multiple activities all in one. Perfect portable organized art center. Folded foot print with trays on is 14 inches with trays removed 6 inches. Trays continue to hold chalk/dry erase markers/paint cups with lids on even in the folded position.

Our son received this as a gift last year. We love it so much that we have purchased one for our nephew. Terrific quality!!!

This is my third Art Easel. 1st was for my granddaughters, 2nd for my house and now this one is for my grandsons. They love it. In the house we use markers and chalk and in the summer we take it outside to paint. Well made and worth the money.

My 94 year old father put this together very easily and quickly over a cup of tea with his grandson for his great grand daughter. We were all impressed with the quality and sturdiness of the easel. It takes either a Melissa and Doug or an lkea roll of drawing paper. The plastic clips and trays seem to be of a high quality and make the easel very functional putting everything in easy reach of the artist.

Bought this for my almost 3 year old for Christmas best gift I have gotten her she absolutely loves it, she has been running between painting and the chalk side for the past 3 days, and it was easy to put together and its very sturdy and well made so so pleased with this perches!! differently would recommend this product!

We Recommend the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel

Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel As our family had so much pleasure from owning the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel we can highly recommend it. It gave our five Grandchildren hours of pleasure. When we finally passed it on, it was in extremely good condition. This Christmas consider giving a gift that can be used for many years.

This hoverboard is awesome! Sturdy and holds up to 220 lbs. my boys got the hang of it very quickly. Us adults a little longer. Haha! But it’s been so much fun. It can go pretty fast too.
This is my first ever hoverboard and it really doesn’t disappoint. I was able to get it going within a little practice but its going to take some getting used to. After watching all videos online and on TV I just had to try it for myself. The fact that is UL2272 certified really pushed me over the top as safety using this was a concern of mine. It durable, sturdy and looks great. I couldn’t be happier. Would recommend to anyone looking to try out a hoverboard for the first time
It’s UL certified, fun, and easy to learn to ride. Plus it comes with silicon bumpers. My kids love riding it as well.
I can’t say enough good things about this! My son wanted one for his birthday, and after our research, we agreed on the Swagtron. This is easy to use, smooth transitions from on to off road, and holds up to various weights (as my husband had to give it a try). My favorite part, the perma-smile my son has when he’s on it. He tried another one and said the smooth ride and ease of use is way better on the Swagtron. Best birthday gift ever.
This works very well. Battery last a long time, and my daughter absolutely loves it. She has had no problems so far (had it about a month). Everything seems to be working as it supposed to and there have been no issues thus far. I do recommend this “hoverboard”!

What Others Have Said About the Fitbit Alta

This is probably the best Fitbit tracker of all that Fitbit has to offer, and yet, it is not perfect. I had Surge, I have tried my wife’s Charge HR, but I am going to say that Alta is the best of them.

The Alta is my first fitness tracker and, overall, I’m pretty satisfied!

This is a great item! I’ve upgraded from the Flex and LOVE the Alta. Very sleek and chick design and it has a nice display on it.

Love the Fitbit products. App is informative and efficient. The silent alarm is a great feature. The clarity of the screen is impressive. Love the notification feature, as it is very reliable

Love that’s its a watch and helps me reach my water intake goals
As well the sleep monitor it awesome!
Going to purchase one for my husband

I love my fitbit! Sleek design low profile. App tracking is great. Love the text notifications. Really motivates. Creates awareness of activity but more importantly makes you aware of how much you’re not doing.

If you think your beloved would love to have a Fitbit Alta for Christmas 2016., don’t delay order early. For their stocking there are many, many accessories. This is a great Christmas gift.

What Others Think of the Strider ST-SC4HD-PK, Harley-Davidson STRIDER

We love the balance bike! It’s awesome that the concept driving the first bikes, over 200 years ago, have come back for the wee tots. We have two boys, nearly five and nearly three, and both learned their two-wheeled balance on a strider

As a rider myself I understand the concept of forward progression and balance. We started our 18 month old boy on a Strider and within a few tries he grasped the idea. Now on our 2nd child she has reached the same age this time for our little girl we again chose the Strider with its low stand over height, easy adjustments and of course it’s pink color we are excited to watch Team Walter stride together!

Our son started riding his strider around age 2, and after a bit of scooting around slowly, he started to figure out the ‘stride’. That’s when we were really sold. He is able to cruise on this little thing so fast I need a bike myself to keep up. His balance skills are incredible. Its light weight enough for a toddler to maneuver easily, the tires are solid so we never have to worry about flats. Its one of his favorite activities, especially since we are avid bikers, so he feels like he can join in the family fun. I can also stick it in the basket of my chariot bike trailer for when he gets tired.

I got the Strider Sport (12″) for my 2 year old Nephew “D”, and he loved it the moment it was put together! Instantly deciding it was time to get on any play, as well as consider it his Motorcycle! He improves his skills in balance every time he uses it, and will probably be riding a bike by summer time with how well he’s doing! I am considering getting the bigger Strider Sport for myself now! Considering it’s been 18 years since I could last ride a back, and the last time I attempted to I had terrible balance and got scared!
Great quality, awesome bike, quick to put together and just get up and move. I wish I could have had something like this when my oldest four kiddos were smaller!

Strider ST-SC4HD-PK, Harley-Davidson STRIDERAfter watching the Strider race in Pittsburgh PA on 6/6/16, we immediately came home and purchased a Sport model. Our 3 year old daughter loves the look of it (it is pink) and she eagerly hopped on. It is very light and she had no problem moving it. Yesterday we took her to a vacant parking lot for her first real attempt, and she quickly learned how to get around on it. We hope to skip the painful training wheels phase using this Strider Balance Bike.

The Strider ST-SC4HD-PK, Harley-Davidson STRIDER is one of those evergreen gifts. It is a great gift for Christmas 2016., however it would make a wonderful gift at any time.

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy For Christmas 2016

Fisher Price has a new learning toy in the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy. It is a great gift for Christmas 2016.
Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar ToyThis brightly colored caterpillar has nine easy to connect segments. Children can separate the parts then reassemble them to achieve a goal. By arranging these parts in different ways the caterpillar will move forward, backward, dance, wriggle left or right, or even pausing.

The bright lights, sounds, and blinking eyes of the head signal the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy is ready for action.

The Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy is a unique learning toy that is suitable for ages 3 to 6 years. We think that may be the older children will get bored with this and that it is probably more suitable for the younger recommended ages.

What Others Have to Say About the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy

We love the Code A Pillar toy! My 4 year old and 2 year old have so much fun as it drives around our living room with bright lights and fun sounds! We just ordered the expansion piece that will allow the code a pillar to go in a complete circle! There are a couple different expansion pack options so that the fun never ends. My 2 year old is yet to figure out how to connect the pieces together, but big brother puts them together and then little brother hits the go button! This toy is great for problem solving: how many straight pieces do I need to get from point A to point B etc.
My granddaughter loves this toy. She sits for hours and tries many different combinations. She likes it because she decides where it goes and where it doesn’t. She is learning quickly and just thinks she is playing!

This was a gift to my little nieces and nephews and they play with it all the time. It makes a super gift for a birthday or even Christmas. I recommend this highly.
This is an adorable toy for toddlers. It teaches them how to figure out codes, and ways to put things together to make it work certain ways. All you have to do is put different sections together to make the caterpillar move in different directions. It lights up and makes sounds, to make it exciting for your child. My grandson just loves playing with this caterpillar.

Add-ons for the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Silly Sounds & Lights Expansion PackThe Fisher-Price Think & Learn Silly Sounds & Lights Expansion Pack features three easy to connect segments that allow the basic Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy to grow. These pieces have different functions:

    Happy – Adding this piece will make him stop & play upbeat music while his eyes “blink” in a fun light pattern

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Master Moves Expansion PackThe Fisher-Price Think & Learn Master Moves Expansion Pack is a must have extra that allows the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar Toy to function in small spaces. These three pieces allow the following actions:

The Gift of Time for Christmas 2016

Keep Time With a Beautiful New Watch

Every Christmas husbands and wives scratch their heads trying to find that special gift for their beloved. This year it is possible to put a beautiful watch under the tree and it will be loved.
It is not possible to own too many watches. For women different watches can be worn as jewelry to compliment their outfits. For men it is nice to have a variety of watches to match their activities. Many people consider the watch they wear as a status statement. Others need their timepieces to be very practical and very dependable. Personally one of the watches I own was selected because it was particularly inexpensive and it my infant granddaughters happened to break it I was not going to be upset.

Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad

Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad

Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad for Christmas 2016

For Christmas 2016 we are looking for gift ideas that challenge our grandchildren. So we were thrilled to discover the Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad. This ingenious game is suitable for 5 to 12. However there is enough variety and challenge for both parents and grandparents to enjoy playing it.
The Osmo Genius Kit changes the way children play. It comes with games that examine math, science, art, and spatial relations. The use of tiles allows for play that is not depended on touching the screen. To use this game system you need to have an iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 iPad Mini, iPad Mini Retina, or iPad Air.

What Is In The Box

  • 5 Different Games Words, Tangram, Newton, Numbers, Masterpiece
    reflector
    base
    pieces for Words, Tangram, and Numbers.

How Does The Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad Work

Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad By attaching the iPad to the base and putting the reflector over the camera the iPad is able to identify what is on the table in front of it. This gets chidren away from just interacting with the screen and engaging them in physical actions. This system allows the digital and physical play to combine.

  1. The Numbers game is free form math – counting, adding and multiplying, uses numbered tiles or domino styled tiles to solve the answers
  2. The Tangram – expands visual skills with use of tiles that can be used as a puzzle to recreate the shape on the screen
  3. The Words – uses letters to spell the image on the screen, since there are two colors of lettered tiles children can see who can spell the fastest
  4. The Masterpiece – allows drawing by copying – you can take a picture on your iPad, it is then outlined on the iPad and with real drawing tools on a piece of paper you can copy what you see and the image on the iPad fills in.
  5. Newton – is problem solving – played with a plain sheet of paper by trying to stop or catch the falling balls or using physical objects to achieve the same result

What Others Say About the Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad

Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad

We bought this product for our 5 year old daughter for Christmas. As a toddler, she loved playing puzzles and continues to love stacking blocks and puzzles. She is a wiz on the iPad, so naturally we thought it would be a good option to expand her skills using the device she is familiar with. She is starting kindergarten which has focused us on working towards those simple reading and math skills. This product is exactly what we were looking for.
+ Packaging is simple, functional for use to store pieces once you are done using.
+ Start-up is easy, simply download app from the App Store.
+ Easy, Medium & Hard applications within the program which allows for children to grow into programs.
My son has Aspergers. This game system came highly recommended by his Occupational Therapist. He loves it! It’s fun and interactive. It builds a lot of small motor and communication skills. My daughter who is neurotypical also loves it. Great gift for Christmas!!
My 5th graders love this “game”. Many of them come from low income families, so they do not have iPads. So this system makes it even for magical for them. It is interactive and kids also interact with each other while playing. I thought that it wouldn’t be challenging enough for 5th graders, but there are many levels.
I have written a Donor’s Choose grant to get 2 more iPads and systems for my classroom. I have found that in a classroom setting, it is best that students work in pairs. I recommend this to any parent that wants to take the iPad to the next level for learning and to elementary classroom teachers for stations. Kids love it, learn, and interact in a positive manner!
Oh my goodness! The options are seriously endless. I could go on and on about the wonders of this program, but I’m sure there are plenty of reviews that already do that. I give it two thumbs up! If you DO end up investing in it, know right away that if you sign in to your account online there are COUNTLESS options of other games and learning programs to download for FREE. You can even MAKE your own games (haven’t had the time to figure that out yet). Honestly, it’s a wonder and whoever was the brain child behind it has my full respect! We use it with our 6 and 8 year old homeschooled boys. They LOVE it! (and so do we…. we play after they’ve gone to bed. 🙂
Received this as a gift for my 5 year old son. This was the best gift he could have ever received. He enjoys learning and playing and in a matter of a week he was doing division and multiplication. Not only was he playing but he was also teaching his younger brother. I would highly recommend this item as a gift and or even to purchase for your own children. The packaging also makes this easy to bring along with you on the go. We love OSMO and can’t wait for more to come!

Herbs and Planter

Herb Growing For the Gardner On Your Christmas List

Culinary Herb Planter
A unique gift for Christmas 2016 is an indoor planter where the recipient can grow their favorite herbs. For those of us who live in the northern hemisphere winter chases us indoors and out of our gardens. Many of us are used to having a constant supply of fresh herbs. When the snow descends these plants get buried. A wonderful solution for this is to have an indoor herb planter.
I have found in the past a high level of frustration and cost when buying fresh herbs at the supermarket. So I decided last Christmas to ask for something that would help me grow my own herbs inside. I was delighted to receive a stackable culinary planter

I was so pleased with this gift that I recommended to all my friends and have put it on my list as a favorite gift to give for Christmas 2016. This amazing stackable hanging planter comes in 5 colors: Terracotta, Stone, Tuscany, Forest Green & Sea Foam

What’s In the Box

  • Multiple Seeds for Parsley, Thyme, Basil, Dill, Oregano, Cilantro/Coriander, Chives, Savory, Garlic Chives, Sweet Marjoram, Mustard & Sage
    Jiffy Greenhouse Dome
    Fifty Jiffy Peat Pellets
    Step-by-Step Instructions
    Herb eBook on CD
    Stackable Planter
    12 Planting Pockets
    Hanging Chain

What Others Think About Growing Herbs Indoor

Stackable Culinary Planter
There are many gardeners and cooks who are enjoying having a way to grow herbs inside. Here are some of their comments:

I bought this as a Christmas gift. My dad loved it and it’s growing in his kitchen now.
I bought this for my parents. They are in their 60’s and I never know what to buy them. I think this was a good gift and they seemed to like it
Great gift for my girlfriend!
I wanted to teach my toddler where plants come from, but between work, cooking, cleaning, taking care of him, etc — I just don’t have the time to build and maintain a proper garden / herb garden. Eventually I will, probably next summer. But for now, this awesome product lets me teach my toddler about plants, without doing any of the work!
This was a gift for my son and he loves it.

Where to Purchase a Herb Kit

For Christmas 2016 you can order a complete kit of herbs and a stackable planter from Herbkits.com. Many of their products are available with Free Shipping.
