Spring fun with Peaceable Kingdom

Last December I was introduced to the brand Peaceable Kingdom. I was a little skeptic at first as their games were different. I mean there was no real “winner” or “loser” how could it be called a game. Little did I know that these games stood for so much more. Unlike traditional games, Peaceable Kingdom cooperative games organically create community among the players. Kids learn to work together as a team in respectful and compassionate ways. They learn to share,  ...

Game On This Easter with Hasbro

Each year my Facebook is flooded with Easter pictures. In those pictures kids are loaded down with chocolates, candy and various other sweet treats. I wont lie I use to do the exact same thing with my guys, then when they were sleeping hubby and I would eat it on them. Funny part? They never missed a piece. That’s when we decided to stay away from the sweet items and concentrate on more tangible items. For the gamer this Easter! Both boys love board games and could spend hours playing  ...

Taking Minecraft to the Next level #MinecraftStorymode #Giveaway

Do you walk into your kids rooms and feel like you have been transported to a pixelated land filled with Creepers, Zombies, Enderman and Steve? That’s how I have felt for over a year and I don’t see an end in sight. I heard about Minecraft day and night and I had no idea how this game could become so complex and how this wasn’t a normal game and encouraged greater thinking and creativity. You can imagine my 9 years olds excitement when I gave him the newest game MINECRAFT  ...

Stuffing the Stockings with Hasbro #NCGiftGuide2015

Stockings are hands down one of my favourite traditions on Christmas morning. When we were younger we were not allowed to wake our parents up till at least 7 am. My sister on the other hand was up at 4 hardly able to contain her excitement so that meant I was up with her. We were lucky as our parents told us stockings were allowed so we would creep downstairs grab them and quickly run back up to her bed. “Santa” always took such special time in selecting our special stocking stuffers and it  ...

Bring the Excitement Under the Tree this Year with Skylanders SuperChargers #NCGiftGuide2015

I still remember when my oldest asked Santa for Skylanders a couple years ago. I kind of laughed when he asked and then made a mad dash to the store to learn more about this video game. Now I am proud to say I am pretty educated on the subject. Some may think that this game is based around a bunch of plastic characters, but once you have played Skylanders you quickly understand the various levels of fun that appeals to all ages. I was pretty excited to be able to check out the newest game  ...
