Kora and the Stormshell Shield

LightSeekers Kora

Less than a week ago I was posting about LightSeekers. I had received a couple of the new smart action figures; Boulder and Zyrus. Then I saw a sale on Amazon.com and there were some accessories and some trading card packs that I was interested in. So I picked up a few of them including the Stormshell shield for the Water characters. Any LightSeeker can use this shield but if it is aligned to the correct character and element then it works better.

I am intrigued by the LightSeeker Card game and have a number of the start packs. I have the water, tech. mountain and dread is coming. I would like to try and play the game with Eva sometime when we have time. I think she would like it and would be good at it. These card games are really helpful in learning how to make quick decisions based on math and also how to plan things out.

I also have a couple of packs of Magic the gathering cards that I got at HASCON that I’ve been meaning to crack open and play with the kids, too. Don’t even get me started about the Dungeons and Dragons Starter pack that I received and have yet to use. Where is the time for all these games?

Speaking of toys and games, we made our annual donation to Christmas is for kids on Monday night. One of the late additions to the donation was from MEGA CONSTRUX & MEGA BLOKS. They sent over some great sets for American Girl, Wellie Wishers and Barbie Dreamtopia. I thought that Eva would have wanted the American Girl sets but she decided that she’d rather they be donated so we did a video talking about each set and then added them to the donation. Here is that video.

Christmas is for Kids Collection 2013

Today we took the toys that we had collected all year and those that we bought on our family shopping trip and set them up for the annual pre-donation photo. While the overall donation wasn’t as large as last year we did end up with a decent haul for the Christmas is for Kids charity. We didn’t even get over to the annual toy drive like we’ve done in past years and I really missed that. We’ve been doing the donation thing for a few years now and it is a fun family activity. I’m glad that we’ve been doing this ever since Eva was really small. Now it is something that we all look forward to doing. Time to get started for next year.
