Neon Dreams with MagicPad™!

Magic Pad

We had the opportunity to review the MagicPad™. This is a tablet sized drawing pad that kids can use to color, do letters and numbers, draw and more. It is a very creative toy and it is also compact, it lights up and can conveniently be transported in the car from place to place. The three double sided markers attach to the tablet for easy storage. There is also a built-in stand so that your child can display their art work. The coolest thing about it, though is that it lights up and each time the light changes the entire piece of artwork also changes. Andrew had so much fun with this. You can see that in the video below. After that check out all the rest of the details on the MagicPad™!

We’ve Got The The Party House – The Super Mario Party (House)

Trike Harder with Super Mario Party

The party house, you know the one, the place where all the kids want to hang out. I would love to be that house, have a great big family room and invite a bunch of kids over to play all sorts of fun party games. Well, we do not have that yet. What we do have is a copy of the latest in the line of Mario Party games. We were given a copy of Super Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch. We were also given two brand new Radio Flyer tricycles, but more on that later.

There are so many minigames in Super Mario Party that you cannot possibly play all of them in a single session. I like this because that means that each time you play you have an almost guaranteed chance to play something new. There are over 80 new minigames in this one game. Not only that but there are many modes for play. In addition to everyone playing on one system with four joycons you can pair up two systems and play that way. Double the play screens. But that is not all, you can now use Nintendo Switch Online service to play super Mario Party online. So, I guess we really do not need to have that giant party house, we can bring the party anywhere that we go!

Andrew and I did a livestream of the game the other day and had a great time. You can see many of the different minigames in this video.
