Chasin’ Cheeky

Chasin’ Cheeky Review

Chasin’ Cheeky Chasin’ Cheeky is one of the hottest Christmas toys in 2013 for toddlers. This fun game, made by one of the most popular toy companies in the world, will provide the whole family with hours of game playing fun. Hasbro has truly outdone itself as far as both toddlers and parents are concerned. That is why parents are flocking to stores all over the world to get the Elefun and Friends Chasin’ Cheeky game for their kids for Christmas 2013.

Kid Friendly Chasin’ Cheeky

Chasin’ Cheeky Chasin’ Cheeky is a simple game for children over the age of three years old (based on my grandchildren I think you could introduce it at a slightly younger age. I also think by age four they will no longer be very interested in it). It doesn’t involve a lot of small parts and the object of the game is easy for young children to comprehend. Chasin’ Cheeky is similar to the classic ring toss game that kids have loved for so many years, but the fun design and the action packed play make it even more exciting for kids, and I’m sure you remember how much fun games were for you as a child.

How To Play Chasin’ Cheeky

Each player in this two player game gets three rings to toss, either yellow or green, and has to chase the monkey around that comes with the game until they get their three rings on his tail. The first player to get their rings on Cheeky’s tail and to grab his banana wins the game. Simple, action-packed, and exciting…the best kind of game for kids.

Parent Friendly Chasin’ Cheeky

Chasin’ CheekyNow, you may be wondering where the fun comes in for the parents, since Chasin’ Cheeky is only a two player game. For parents not playing the game, though, the game is just as much fun because they can watch their children enjoy hours of active fun. What better kind of toddler game could there be? And if you do decide to get in on the action you will have just as much fun as your child.
With this game there are very few pieces to worry about losing, which tends to be a problem with so many children’s games. This makes it easier for parents to teach their children how to pick up after themselves. And parents seem to love that their child can even enjoy the game playing on their own, as it is still a challenge for young children to get the rings on the monkey’s tail. Many games that we buy as parents for our children require us sitting down to play for hours. To be sure, we want to spend time playing with our children, but most of us hardly have hours to spend playing one game, not to mention young children usually tend to get antsy when they sit for too long. The fact that you can have a lot of fun watching your child play this game, or playing the game with your child, and that you can do it within a timeframe that works for everyone, only adds to the list of reasons Chasin’ Cheeky is ending up on the hottest Christmas toys of 2013 list. Add it to your list and you and your child will be glad that you did.

What Others Have to Say About Chasin’ Cheeky

Currently at Chasin’ Cheeky has a 4.5 of 5 star rating but there are only two reviews. On the UK Amazon site where there are 17 reviews it has a 3.8 of 5 star rating.

“This game is all my four year old son talks about. Seeing it in stores he jumps up and down, reminding me to put it on ” his list”. The colors are bright and fun. Looking forward to playing it with my little guy come Christmas morning!!”

“Saw this on the T.V. and thought it would make a great Christmas gift for my two kids, and something they can do indoors in the winter time.”

“This is actually a great toy for all ages. The monkey runs around the room and you have to throw hoops onto the tail and then grab the banana from its mouth! Sounds daft but in reality its extremely entertaining! This is one of those games which the whole family can enjoy and spend time together.”

Monopoly Empire

Monopoly Empire Review

Monopoly EmpireThe holidays would not be complete without a new game. One of the hottest selling games for Christmas 2013 is Monopoly Empire. Monopoly is still a much loved game today, loved by both children and adults alike.
Did you like monopoly when you were a kid? It’s fairly likely that you did, and that you spent many joyful hours competing with your best friends, cousins, and siblings to own all of the properties on the board. The game looks a lot different today than it once did. For starters, there are numerous different versions of the classic favourite. Then there is the fact that technology plays a much bigger role in new age monopoly as well. The classic version is still available, although maybe not as easily found as some of the other versions, but kids these days tend to be drawn to the flashier games on the hottest 2013 Christmas toys lists. Monopoly Empire is one of those games, and the great thing about it is that you can have fun playing the new version with your kids too.

How Monopoly Empire Is Played

Monopoly EmpireThe basic concept of Monopoly Empire is the same as previous monopoly games; it wouldn’t be one of the hot toys for Christmas 2013 if it were not. In this monopoly, like in all of the other versions, the idea of the game is to own as many squares on the board as you can so that you can collect the most money by “monopolizing” the board. The difference is in what players will be trading in this particular version of the game. In the original monopoly the battle was on to collect up as many properties as you could, with Park Place and Boardwalk being the most sought after properties due to their extravagant rent prices. And the game was based on actual streets in New Jersey. Well, Monopoly Empire is based on real life too; only this time players can try their chances at owning some of the world’s most profitable brand names. Instead of collecting houses and hotels each player has the opportunity to build up his or her tower and fill it with billboards representing well-known brands that are popular today. The first to reach the top of their tower will be the ultimate mogul and win the game.

Kid Friendly Monopoly Empire

Monopoly EmpireThe terrific thing about playing this particular version of Monopoly with your kids is that they will recognize many of the name brands, many of which they are even more familiar with than adults are. Xbox, EA Sports, McDonalds… These are all brands that kids these days know and love, which makes the game that much more exciting. And there are plenty of brands for you to love too. Also, since the game is designed for children 8 and up, it provides for a perfect opportunity to teach valuable game play lessons at a young age.

Monopoly Empire can be played in less than 30 minutes. This quick version of the game will help hold the attention of younger players.

Adult Friendly Monopoly Empire

Monopoly EmpireMake no mistake Monopoly Empire is not just for children. Adults will love some of the strategic decision making that is necessary to be the victor. Adults will understand things like tower tax that might contribute to taking down their tower.

Most of all you will love the time spent with your kids when you play Monopoly Empire together. It is a fresh new take on an original classic and there is everything to love about this unique version of one of America’s favorite games.

What Others Have to Say About Monopoly Empire

Monopoly EmpireMonopoly Empire currently has a 4.1 out 5 star rating. Others who have play it have this to say:

“Monopoly Empire is faster and easier to play than the original but loses most of the strategic game play of the original. A fun addition to our Monopoly collection, Monopoly Empire earns a regular rotation in our family game night lineup that includes Clue, Payday, Uno, Battleship, Risk and Stratego.”
“This is such a cool game! It’s a scaled down version of Monopoly, and each game only takes 5-15 minutes to play, instead of the hours of a regular Monopoly game. So you’ll hear something with this Monopoly game that you won’t hear with any other Monopoly game, which is “Want to play again?””
“This is addictive, its a perfect game with a perfect time and its limited edition soo i love this game”
“We enjoyed this Monopoly version. After being burned out of so many different flavors of the game, our kids actually enjoyed playing this.”

Currently on Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo has a 4 out of 5 star rating. This is what customers are saying about him:

“I’d definitely recommend this toy for those with kids who are old enough to treat the toy with respect, as it requires care for a long life. But even on the shelf, the sight of Big Hugs Elmo is sure to make someone smile. Elmo is a toy that brims with positivity that is a welcome reminder that your child can always find a hug when they need one. The toy’s big muppety grin is cute enough that, after a long day at work, you might just find yourself giving him a hug yourself!”
“The Big Hugs Elmo does a lot more than Tickle Me Elmo did, and he’s bigger, too. He talks and sings and makes a lot of movements. He’s especially funny when he goes to sleep, first singing a lullaby, then saying goodnight, snoring for a minute or so, then quieting down until you wake him by pressing his left foot. Kids will probably most enjoy hugging Elmo, since he hugs back and talks, but it’s also fun holding him upside down,”
“I got the “Big Hugs Elmo” for my two and a half year-old granddaughter who is already a big fan of Sesame Street Elmo. Once I popped four AA batteries into the battery compartment, Elmo started speaking. Next, it wanted to give someone a hug and my granddaughter lovingly obliged. It even sings a “hugging” song. She fell in love with it within minutes and she ended up going home with the new Big Hugs Elmo. Elmo is easy to operate (simple instructions come with the box). The best part I liked is the “sleep” mode. When you lay it down, Elmo tells you he’s going to sleep. He will sing a short lullaby and start to snore. What a hoot!”
“It is a cute toy and great for my grandson – he will love it! Christmas present!!!! Everyone should buy one for their little ones!”

Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet

Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet Review By Grandparent

Leap Frog Leap Pad Ultra Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet is one of Christmas 2013 most sought after toys. I am rather excited to see this as several months ago my twin Granddaughters received the LeapFrog LeapPad 2 Explorer Learning Tablet for their fourth birthday. This has proved to be a great gift.
The LeapPad Learning Tablet has provided them with hours of entertainment. I find it is gratifying to see them using a toy over and over again. It seems like there are many toys that are over night sensations then tossed away. This is not so with these tablets. They go in and change their profiles, add and subtract other profiles, play a cassette story, love the interactive questions about the stories, and take pictures. All this and they have just scratched the surface of things they can do on their LeapPad Learning Tablets.

Why would you purchase the Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet verses one of the earlier versions of these tablets?

Kid Friendly Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet

Leap Frog Leap Pad Ultra Leapfrog has made this new tablet very kid proof. I think that this is important especially for younger children, as they don’t always realize that they are being rough with their toys. It can withstand being dropped, smeared with food, and generally abused.

We find with our Granddaughters, that they like the fact that they can claim ownership of their Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablets. This gives them a certain independence from having to ask permission to use a parent’s iPad.
With a library of 800+ educator-approved games & apps built-in to the system they are not waiting for a parent to purchase more activities for them.

Children love to take pictures and they especially like to take pictures of themselves. With a front and rear camera they can click away. The 480p video recording feature will give them sharper images. The built-in MP3 player is also fun.

What Others Are Saying About the Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet

This Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra Kids Learning Tablet is currently showing a 3.7 out of 5 stars rating on

“My son just turned 4, and by far this is the best “toy” tablet. With all of the incredible updates and additions, it’s as if LeapFrog heard what parents and kids wanted, and redesigned a new tablet to accommodate our wishes–but still with the value and vision LeapFrog is known for. My only reservation is that the speed is slow and it sometimes crashes, or “fake” crashes”
“To bottom line it, I’d buy the Ultra 100 times out of 100 versus the InnoTab 3S. There are some advantages to the 3S, as noted above, but for a well-built piece of `educational’ equipment with lots of app/game/content options, I can’t see passing up the Ultra.”
“We absolutely love the LeapPad Ultra for our family! The platform is truly educational for the kids and it provides quality entertainment. I have already seen improvements in the kids reading and writing skills with this product. We typically don’t write ‘online’ reviews but felt compelled to after the enjoyment we have recieved from this product.”

Flutterbye Flying Fairy

Flutterbye Flying Fairy – a Grandmother’s Review

Flutterbye Flying Fairy For Christmas 2013 Flutterbye Flying Fairy is one of the fastest selling toys. The toy is manufactured by Spin Master, and unlike other toys with the same concept as the ones created before, this one actually flies. In the beginning, all you do is spin the fairy doll at the bottom. By doing so, it will glide through the air as it spins. As it descends put your palm at the bottom of the falling fairy and push it upwards. Such gesture will make it fly again.

Flutterbye Flying Fairy Kid Friendly

Flutterbye Flying Fairy In our household our four-year-old granddaughters cannot seem to get enough of princesses, ballerinas, and fairies. This Flutterbye Flying Fairy is a perfect gift for them. This doll is available in three colors Pink Flower, Purple Stardust and Gold Sunbeam; so they can each have their own doll.
I know they will love the fact that they can fly these fairies by their hand actions. The fairies will fall if they hit something. Parental supervision is necessary to avoid accidental crashes. Children will quickly learn that with a small movement of their hand they can direct the flight. As the Flutterbye Flying Fairy slowly descends the little girls can wave their hands and up it will go.

Flutterbye Flying Fairy Adult Friendly

Flutterbye Flying FairyMost parents will be overjoyed that there is a charger for these dolls – no replacing batteries. Once it is charged, what makes it unique is its lack of a remote control that is commonly used in flying toys. Instead of a remote control, the toy has an infrared sensor which helps detect hard surfaces. Once it senses the presence of a surface, it immediately flies by activating the lightweight fan that is built around the body.
The wonder on the faces of little girls when they discover that they can fly these delightful Flutterbye Flying Fairies will be very gratifying to all parents.

Qualities of the Flutterbye Flying Fairy

  • Doll “magically” flies right above your child’s hand!
  • Beautiful glittery wings and molded dress included
  • Perfect for young girls aged 5 to 9
  • Requires 6 AA batteries (not included)

It has a fan which is the same concept used for the Air Hogs Atmosphere flying ball, though this time around, the manufacturers figured out the best way to do it. They wrapped the fan around the body of the toy in order to make it look like it is flying.

What Others Have To Say About the Flutterbye Flying Fairy

The Flutterbye Flying Fairy is currently showing 2.6 out of 5 stars rating. Some of the comments are:

“I have to say that my daughters loved controlling heir fairy and they thought this was a very fun toy to use. As mentioned above I decided to use lithium as I surmised that I could need them, and so far they have been working great. My five and nine year old girls were able to control the fairy with no problems and the biggest problem that we had was having the girls share the fairy!”
“t is better for younger kids than a remote controlled helicopter because it hovers and they can make it fly higher by simply putting a hand beneath it.”
“This is the coolest toy ever! I got one for my daughter for her 6th birthday and she won’t stop playing with it. I get a kick out of myself. Now, it doesn’t stay charged very long and you really should be in an open area because she will take off and run into a wall or something and then she crashes. But, once you get it going its pretty cool. We actually had her flying around the room for a little bit. My daughter thinks its awesome.”
