Exercise Your Brain with SmartGames

Exercise Your Brain with SmartGames

Yesterday I had the opportunity to host a fun SmartGames game night through Tryazon. Tryazon sent us samples of three SmartGames: Ghost Hunters, IQ XOXO, and Busy Bugs. We invited some friends over and everyone grabbed a game to try. Since all the games were one player games we timed each round for 10 minutes and then swapped. Everyone had a great time learning the games. Ghost Hunters ended up being the favorite of the night! But we had fun playing them all. About SmartGames SmartGames utilizes skills ranging from spatial insight to pattern recognition, while improving your problem solving abilities and your memory. Each SmartGame is carefully designed and produced using quality materials that last. Challenges are divided into 4 or 5 levels of difficulty. And with so many included challenges, each …

Unplug with ThinkFun

I only recommend products or services I believe in, and use myself. This post contains affiliate links. I don’t know about you, but my kids have been a little too attached to their electronics lately. It’s cold outside, the weather hasn’t been great. It gets dark so early in the day… Once my kids have their homework done, the first thing they head to is the X-box, their smartphone or the computer. It was about time to unplug again. The last time I did this I made all of my kids cry when I collected their electronics, but we ended up having a really fun …

I’ve Got The Answer to Your Holiday Anxiety and Apprehension: BJ’s Wholesale Club [giveaway]

Disclosure: I was fortunate enough to be invited to a small blogger event at the BJ’s Wholesale Club in Pineville, NC, where we toured the store, sampled some of their yummy food and treats, and was provided with a small budget to do a 10 minute “Secret Santa” shopping spree for one of my fellow bloggers. (That was fun!) But all opinions in this post are my own. I woke up yesterday morning full of anxiety. I couldn’t pinpoint why until I looked at the calendar and realized I had only 5 days until our game night house party, I haven’t planned anything for Christmas dinner yet and there are only 10 more shopping days until Christmas! (Not to mention I have a stack of Christmas Cards I haven’t finished–I DID get a few mailed …

Leap into Gaming with LeapTV: Hot Holiday Gift for the 3 to 8 Year Old Set

#MommyParties and LeapFrog sent me a #LeapTV system to review with my closest 3-10 year old friends. The opinions within this post are 100% mine. Last year my daughters received an Xbox 360 as a gift from a family friend. It came with a bunch of horrible, violent games that I immediately banned my youngest three from playing. So they wouldn’t feel left out, I picked up a few age-appropriate games for the little ones to play. Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 games are really expensive and the kids get bored with them very quickly. And there really aren’t that many games created for the under-10 age bracket. I thought several times how it would be nice to have a gaming system that was specifically made for the younger kids. I …
