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.

Here is that video.

Review: MEGA Bloks Barbie Fab Mansion

We received two MEGA Bloks Barbie sets to review including the Fab Mansion and the Underwater Cove. MEGA Bloks has a few series of Barbie sets with themes of Barbie, Barbie as a mermaid and Barbie as a fairy. Opinions of the set are 100% my own.

Eva was my toy tester, helper for this review. When I was asked if I wanted to review this I ran it by Eva and she was very excited to build some Barbie MEGA Bloks. Many of the Barbie MEGA Bloks sets are modular and they fit together easily and are interchangeable. All the rooms in the Mansion can be moved around so you can mix things up however you’d like. Bathroom downstairs, cool. Kitchen upstairs, you bet. It is very easy to do.

The Assembled MEGA Bloks Barbie Fab Mansion

While this is a MEGA Bloks set it is more aligned to a dollhouse than a building set. I say this because the walls of each room are already built. What your child builds are the items within each room and then they can take those interiors of the rooms and decide where to place them in the mansion.
