Christmas Decorating Day – Spider-Man Emergency Repairs

Spider-Man surgery
Photo-A-Day #4637

eva was having a sleepover and baking/crafting and who knows what else session with Auntie Tara last night into today. So, Andrew had us to himself today. We started the morning off together building one of his LEGO sets from his Birthday. He and I took turns doing each of the bags. He did a great job on it and his getting better and better with LEGO every time we play. I used the LEGO instructions online for one of the creator sets to make a LEGO Diplodocus. This was a 3 in 1 creator sets of dinosaurs. So as he built I took apart the dinosaur set and then rebuilt it.

After our building session we started cleaning the house for Christmas and I promised Andrew that after we cleaned the house we could build a huge track for the Tracer Racers. A few days ago we posted a video of these glow-in-the-dark tracer racers, part of the MAX TRAXXX line. The company liked our video so much that they went and sent us a ton of additional sets. The new super track is over 100 feet in length which the cars make short work of as they speed along. We did build a new track but that is later.

MAX RAXXX Super Track and Christmas Trees

We got the whole house cleaned up and the kids trimmed their little Christmas trees. I helped them as Allison washed and ironed our living room curtains. Each year the kids get one special ornament for their tree. Andrew’s ornament is Spider-Man. The kids were all excited and I was taking the ornament out of the box and it fell to the floor and the arms and legs of Spider-Man snapped off. Andrew was so upset. Eva immediately went into mom mode and took him to his room to help calm him. I took spidey downstairs and started surgery. So far his legs and one arm have been reattached. He should be better in a couple of days.

We enjoyed pizza, salad and a movie tonight together on the couch. We watched The Santa Claus for the first time and we all enjoyed it. the kids thought it was really funny. I enjoyed it as well.

After the movie we got to play with the new MAX TRAXXX super track that we built before dinner. The cars were all charged and the kids were, too. It was time to have fun and they certainly did. Check out the video below.

The whole set is fantastic and we had a lot of fun playing with it and reviewing it. You can purchase it through our Amazon.com links and if you do go to the stores that are approved by Skullduggery.

Toy Review: VMD Missile Striker

I was sent a Vehicles of Mass Destruction Missile Striker toy to play with and review. Opinions expressed are based upon my use of the toy.

Vehicles of Mass Destruction: Missile Striker

The Missile Striker from Skyrocket Toys is a remote control vehicle that can fire a screaming foam missile up to 65 feet. The wheels of the vehicle are actually tracks that can move independently of each other. You are able to swing the vehicle around quickly, more forward or backward easily and then fire off a powerful missile blast. The Missile Striker is a fast one and with the tracks you can climb over small obstacles like sticks and twigs when you use the toy outside. Continue reading Toy Review: VMD Missile Striker
