Captain Toad™: Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo 3DS™

The kids with Toad and Toadette

When we went to Sweet Suite this past July the first thing that we saw was Nintendo. The kids got a chance to try out the new game, Captain Toad™: Treasure Tracker. They loved playing it. They even earned their Toad Brigade Membership cards and were given a stuffed Toad and Toadette. When I got home I contacted Nintendo to see if we could receive a copy for review. We were sent the game for the Nintendo 3DS™ system and I have been the one to play it most often. Opinions of the game are our own.

CozyPhones – Soft and Cute Headphones for the Kids

The Kids Rocking out with their CozyPhones

We received a couple of CozyPhones for free to use and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

In the past few years we have taken many car trips with the kids and this past February we went on a flight with them. Each time we go on our trips now the kids take along their activity packs with all sorts of things to keep themselves entertained. One of the things that they each have is an iPad. Eva has an iPad Mini and Andrew an iPad Air in a large protective case. We’ve gone through a number of headphones over the years, too. It is always fun to be driving down the road to hear that the headphones are hurting my head or to discover at the last minute that the headphones have been broken beyond repair. And when I say fun… I mean frustrating for both me and the kids.

The KumiKreator Cool Maker Friendship Bracelet Maker by SpinMaster!

Eva and the KumiKreator Cool Maker Friendship Bracelet Maker

today I was part of a great Twitter Party with The Toy Insider and SpinMaster all around their DIY line of products. These are the Cool Maker products and I received a KumiKreator which is a friendship bracelet maker. I received it for free in order to participate in the Twitter party. Normally, folks, I do a feature prior to that party but unfortunately I was unable to do it this time because we were on the Cape and the KumiKreator was here at home.

Making the First Bracelet

It is amazing. You load up to 12 spools of thread into the device. Then you turn the crank clockwise and the machine automatically weaves the friendship bracelet for you. It is so simple. It does take a little bit of time to load in all the spools. Continue reading The KumiKreator Cool Maker Friendship Bracelet Maker by SpinMaster!

Review: Daniel Webster Inn – Sandwich, MA

The Daniel Webster Inn

Allison and I were invited to stay at the Daniel Webster Inn and Spa and see all the amenities of the Inn. Our stay was compensated. Opinions are our own.

Growing up on Falmouth Cape Cod we often did not venture beyond Mashpee because of how “far away” those other towns were. Going to Sandwich? Well that is clean across the cape and back to the canal. You might as well go home if you are heading there. That is often an opinion anywhere on the Cape. Once you get to your place on Cape Cod you hunker down and avoid the traffic at all costs. However, if you do that then you miss out on all that Cape Cod has to offer. There is a rich history here that is waiting to be discovered. One such historical place is The Daniel Webster Inn.

The Daniel Webster Inn is so named because the famous Boston lawyer, Daniel Webster had a room reserved at this Tavern from 1815 to 1851. There has been lodging on this site for over 300 years. Nestled in the very heart of the town of Sandwich, Ma, the Cape’s oldest town, the Daniel Webster Inn offers visitors and locals alike a fine place to stay and excellent meals.

On our visit Allison and I drove all the way over to Sandwich (about 40 minutes from Falmouth) and had lunch near the canal. Then we visited the Sandwich Glass Museum and learned how glassblowing and glassmaking made Sandwich a very prosperous town. I find that as I get older, all those trips that I was so bored with as a child are no very interesting. We saw a glassblowing demonstration and tours the substantial museum that had a large collection of Sandwich glass. Continue reading Review: Daniel Webster Inn – Sandwich, MA
