Walmart Toyland #ChosenByKids Event InnoTabMax #Review

The past few weekends Wal-Mart has been hosting a toys #ChosenByKids hands on display at store around the USA. Our family was invited to become official toy testers.

The Wal-Mart was set up rather poorly and only a few toys were out to try but my Son enjoyed himself!

There were toys from the Northpole movie, Some Mega Blocks, Olaf was there and Nerf guns.


Checking out a few and our Official Tester and Approved Kit =)

The Snowball was pretty cool makes a great stocking stuffer!

But the hit of the trip for us was the InnoTabMax!!! This tablet is just the right for my Son-  combines our expert-supported learning library with carefully selected educational Android apps -Its really the best first "laptop" you'll find.

There are some great bundle with games and accessories  too .
  • Best of Both Learning Worlds: An ever-expanding library of over 650 educator supported learning cartridges and carefully selected educational Android apps
  • 7" multi-touch screen with high-resolution display and kid-safe Wi-Fi.
  • VTech Kid Connect app: Exchange text and voice messages, photos, drawings and fun stickers with smart phones.
  • Years of Learning Fun: Adaptable design with a tough, kid-friendly cover that can be removed for a more grown-up feel. Plus, a huge library of expert-supported curricula including an ever-expanding selection of hand-picked Android learning apps that are perfect for kids of all ages.

Right now it's a ROLLBACK--at $82.50 !! So guess what I grabbed one!! There are carcartridge games that can be bought separately  TMNT, Marvel Heros and MonsterInc and Disney movies are just a few that are available.

The Walmart Toyland #ChosenByKids Events are over for this year so be sure to check them out next year, I know I will!

#REVIEW Emma Learns to Sprout ( children's book about nutrition)

This is a simple book teaching how to Sprout. I much like Emma had never herd of this process. I like how simple put this concept is. Emma learns to sprout or grow lentils, chick peas, beans and that you can even sprout sunflower seeds...They taste good and full of protein, iron and vitamin. If you kids love to help out in the kitchen and you want to 
encourage  healthy habits this is the book for you!! Age suggestion is 3-8.

You can find it on Amazon

Gourmet Souffle Chocolate Dessert Review.

Sweets and the holidays go together about as much as red and green do at Christmas-time. That's why I thought it would be fun to sample a new brand that has a mouth-watering chocolate dessert, perfect for the holidays! 

Gourmet Soufflé has an innovative mix that allows you to enjoy restaurant-style chocolate soufflés in just minutes. Normally I wouldn't even attempt this because  it takes more than an hour to prepare these types of soufflés, but now it's so easy  to bake Gourmet Souffle at  home. Mix+Water+Pour+Sugar and Bake!! 

I was sent enough product to host a small party.  My guests were asked to try and make the product.  We had mixed results, it was fun to see the different topping everyone attempted too. Some guest didn't fill up their ramekin enough so the souffle looks a lil flat. 

 In the end the party was fun the product was  super easy to make. We had fun creating our own topping for the souffles. The taste was light on the fork but there was a POW of Chocolate that just cannot be put into words! We also filled a few with a caramel that left us speechless!!
Look at that ooey gooey goodness!!!

A HUGE THANKS to Gourmet Souffle for making me feel like Julia Child for a day.

Our Holiday Traditions ...what happens before the gifts are UNWRAPPED #chosedbykids

Its the Holiday Season--and that means time for some Family Traditions!! The

 biggest thrill as a child is seeing the huge pile of gifts!

Our holiday days are full of so many different traditions...leading up to GIFT TIME!!!

 Many are not suitable for publication... but there are a few we do every season I'd like to share. One starts the first day of December--The Advent Calendar was first used by German Lutherans in the 19th century but is now used by many to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas!

or as my kids like to call it
25 days of CHOCOLATE!!!




My kids are big on leaving little list EVERYWHERE...even on-line. 

When it comes to toy shopping, I will do most of my shopping online

For great toy ideas I love in-store events. When attending in-store events 

 stores  I can see how the toys works also how excited my kids get

 playing with it.

 Walmart is hosting many in-store Toyland events where they will be

 showcasing all the hot holiday toys chosen by kids. For more information on

 Toyland dates and locations ~~>> here! 

 I will be attending one  Toyland event on 12/13 at the Amherst Walmart.

 Cannot wait!!!


Christmas Eve our family also always reads Luke 2 together. Focusing on who

 we believe the REAL MEANING for the season is.

Taking a photos-- It started with snaps in front of the Christmas Tree-my Opa  

takes great pride in his decoration skills and wants its beauty captured forever!

When my Son was born we were trying to set up for a family photo 

and he was JUST NOT INTO IT-- at 3 months who can blame him...we snapped 

the shot below and have re-created it every year for a THEN/NOW memory.

 We still do our best to get a shot in font of the tree as well.

It's great to mix the old and new traditions together. What traditions do you have in your family? Have they been done for generations or have you started new ones??
