I Thought I Cleaned This…

So many more reviews to come

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00576

When I had moved everything into my new office I had very few things left to move. Most everything else ended up in the attic. For a while the futon was pretty clear of things and I could nap on it during my breaks from work. That was up until this week. I have a number of things on the futon that are for reviews that I am working on. Everything seems to arrive at once and always at one of the worst times, too. Things tend to arrive right in the middle of when we are back and forth to the Cape. There are quite a few table top games in the mix, however, that we can play if the weather gets bad. That might be happening soon or it might not. Either way we will be ready.

On top of the toys there on the futon I have the Sweet Suite Swag Box on the way. It was supposed to have been delivered on Friday and so I saw that it was out for delivery on Friday only to see it re-scanned back at the distribution center in Warwick. Then today I saw it was out for delivery again and I could choose to follow my delivery on the UPS app. I followed along with the package coming close to the house only to follow it right back to Warwick again. You’re killing me, UPS!

The Ben 10 Omnitrix-inspired Alien Creation Chamber from PlayMates Toys Gives Kids Endless Alien Possibilities

Andrew makes alien Creations at Sweet Suite

Ben 10 is one of Andrew’s favorite shows, but he doesn’t get to watch it too often. So, when making this video he was a little light on remembering the names of the aliens. I wasn’t that much better. Playmates Toys sent us the Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber toy for free to play with and review. This was a toy that Andrew took to at Sweet Suite. We had to pull him away and when he finally did leave he had a ton of little aliens to enjoy. The opinions that are expressed in this review are our own.

At Sweet Suite there were so many toys and it was the first time that I was able to bring the kids. While they occasionally got hung up at one table or another they generally moved along to the next. Not when we got to the table that had multiple Ben 10 Alien Creation Chambers and a table full of alien parts! Both Andrew and Eva were drawn to this table and enjoyed making alien after alien. Andrew liked it so much we left him playing (within earshot and eyesight) while we went a couple of tables down. He had a grand old time playing with this and so I had to ask for one for review. Once we unboxed it and made the video below, he continued to play with it and make alien after alien.

I think we missed a key thing in the video and I will explain it a bit through the photos below. Continue reading The Ben 10 Omnitrix-inspired Alien Creation Chamber from PlayMates Toys Gives Kids Endless Alien Possibilities
