Play Like Hasbro with these new Favorites #PlayLikeHasbro

play-like-hasbro-1

Disclaimer: I was provided products to review as a #PlayLikeHasbro Mom. As always, all opinions are my own. Hasbro makes some really fun toys and games for all different age levels- and I got the chance to try out a pretty wide range, for my baby Moriah, my preschooler Elijah, and my big boy Matthew. I was curious to see if I could actually get toys to engage and interest all three of my kids with such a wide age difference. I selected a toy for each child from a list that Hasbro provided me, and I actually think I did really well with my … [Read more...]

carters-spring-13

All Hail King Julien -New Episodes Airing April 3rd on Netflix

all-hail-king-julien

Despite always being on Netflix and constantly having the battle where you flick through everything possible to find something everyone wants to watch I somehow missed All Hail King Julien when it first aired. Apparently the first few episodes had to do with King Julien's ascent to the throne and his duties as king. He finds his one hater, he defeats some evil, and he always comes out mostly on top largely due to luck and Maurice. Now King Julien is BACK with new episodes on Netflix starting TODAY! And being a huge Firefly geek, I was so excited to … [Read more...]

Reader Bee’s First Storymaker App and Reader Bee and the Story Tree

Story-Tree-reader-bee-app-1

I was given the opportunity to use and evaluate the iPad apps 'Reader Bee and the Story Tree' and 'Reader Bee's First Story Maker'. I was supplied the apps for free; all opinions are my own. I'm a big big believer in phonics, and in teaching reading phonetically. It's important to learn the letter shapes, names and sounds and then learn how to string them together to make a word. Decoding the sounds in each letter are the crux of reading, and Reader Bee and the Story Tree focuses on this very thing- learning letter sounds and how they fit … [Read more...]
