Playmobil provided us with a free review unit of their Jumbo Advent Calendar. Opinions are our own.

The kids love Advent calendars and are so excited to open them every year. This year Andy has a special Advent calendar from Playmobil. The Stunt Show Jumbo Advent Calendar is packed with great pieces, vehicles and figures to play with. The set arrives as one big box but as a parent I want Andy to have the full experience of the Advent Calendar and so I don’t want any of the days spoiled so I opened the set so that there were two boxes. One box contains the truck and trailer and the other box is the advent calendar itself. You see the larger box actually shows you the items that are inside and what days your child gets each item. I don’t want Andy to know that until he opens each day’s window.

You can see more about this awesome advent calendar in the video below and if you are looking to get one for youorself then you can do so through the Playmobil website at—stunt-show/70544.html.

Enjoying The Best Jerky Gift Box from The Manly Man Company®

Beef Jerky for Father's Day

The folks from The Manly Man Company® sent me a free sample of their jerky in the form of The Best Jerky Gift Box. Opinions are my own.

Now the reason I did not say Beef Jerky was that The Best Jerky Gift Box contains not only beef jerky but bacon and pepperoni jerky. I’ve never had the pleasure of trying either but I am very excited about it. The Best Jerky Gift Box retails for $65 and contains a bunch of different jerky in various flavors. Contained in the box I received there were eight packages of jerky. They were:

  • 1x Barbecue Mesquite Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Old Fashioned Maple Bacon Jerky (2oz.)
  • 1x Pepperoni Jerky- Straight up Pepperoni (2oz.)
  • 1x Draft Ale- Black Label Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Whiskey Straight- Black Label Beef Jerky (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Original Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Teriyaki Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)
  • 1x Manly Man Hot Beef Jerky Flower Trimming (3oz.)

Jerky SelfieYou might be thinking to yourself, as I was at first, what are Flower Trimmings? Well, in addition to some great gift baskets for men The Manly Man Company® also does Man Bouquets. They make flower bouquets out of their jerky. The one item that has me totally salivating over here is their BACON ROSES + Dark Chocolate gift box. These are a dozen maple candied bacon jerky roses dipped in dark chocolate. No wonder it is already sold out! So then, now you know what flower trimmings are, they are the trimmings from all of those jerky flowers that are made for the bouquets.

There are plenty of great gift ideas for the men in your life on this site. The package I received had many different jerky in resealable packages so I can easily sample from all of them and seal them back up to enjoy again when I have a moment to relax and enjoy some quiet time and well crafted jerky. I did try quite a few of them and wow, I really like the Old Fashioned Maple Bacon Jerky and the Pepperoni Jerky.
