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.

Review: New Pokémon sets from Mega Construx

MEGAContrux Pokemon

We received some Mega Construx sets for free to play with and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

We received two sets to play with and they were the Charmander vs. Squirtle battle pack and the Machop and pokeball set. Andrew and I don’t really know much about Pokémon. I was older when ti came out and I never got into it. I wasn’t interested in the TV show or collecting the cards either. I do like building sets, and so when we were asked to review these I said sure.

MEGA Construx does a nice job of creating sets that feature current characters and properties like Despicable Me and the Minions and now Pokémon. The way that you can build each little Pokémon character is done nicely. You actually build the little heads of the characters rather then them being molded pieces. I like this because the heads go on with ball in socket connections so that you can move the heads all around. This makes for better poses while playing. Andrew built these sets himself and he did a great job following the directions with a little help. You can see more about each of the sets and also find a link to their official pages.
