Playmobil Fire Chief and Car Review and Giveaway (Closed)


Have you purchased any gifts from Playmobil for this season yet?  Well, if not, you better get out there and get some!  Playmobil's line is awesome!  I was able to review just one of the many items offered in their extensive line of toys.

This fire-fighting themed truck from Playmobil is ready to go at a moment's notice!  You can have your car packed and ready to go with a fire extinguisher, car cones, megaphone, first aid kit and much, much more.  This all fits in the car's storage compartment, too.  This Playmobil set also comes with the Fire Chief figure that you can sit inside of the drivers seat of the car.  Oh, and the fire chief's car comes with a removable roof.  How cool is that?!

This makes a great partner toy to the other Playmobil Fire Rescue sets.  I love toys that are multi-function.  Not only is this fun to play with, but this fire fighting set creates the opportunity to talk to your little one about the danger of fire and fire safety.  For this reason, I think this a great toy with valuable lessons that can be learned from play.

Mega Bloks Adventures on Misty Island Review

Calling all Mega Bloks and Thomas Fans!!!!  Mega Bloks Thomas Adventure on Misty Island is the perfect buildable play set for children 3 and older.  It is based off the hit movie Thomas & Friends: Misty Island Rescue.  Your little one becomes the engineer of the track, so they can design it any way they want.  You can build and rebuild Misty Island over and over in countless ways.  You can build the track up high or low down, creating endless adventures.

There are 101 pieces in this cool set.  The pieces assemble easily, although a younger child would probably need some help from a parent.  Included are Thomas and James with pull-along carts that you can push up or roll down the tracks.  Other accessories included are lakes, tunnels, break-through barricades and rocks.

This play set will definitely keep young children busy.  Children will be having fun while refining their motor skill development.  What is great it that you can also combine it with other Thomas characters and play sets.  This opens up the possibilities for endless fun!

Mega Bloks Adventures on Misty Island Review retails for $49.99 and can be purchased at Amazon and Toys R Us.

Pinkalicious Review and Giveaway (Closed)

UNO: Pinkalicious

I remember the original game of UNO.  It was always a fun game to play on family game night.  However, I don't remember winning that often, but it was always fun.  You can continue the tradition of game night with the Pinkalicious fans in your house with UNO: Pinkalicious Edition.

Pinkalicious UNO is the same great game of UNO you remember, but with a twist and a special Pinkitits Card and Rule, which can only be cured with a dose of green veggies (or all the green cards you hold in your hand)!  There are two ways to keep score.  Either the first player to reach 500 points is the winner or the person with the lowest amount of points is the winner.  It just depends on how you keep score with the remaining cards. 

Pinkalicious UNO comes in a nice collector's tin container to neatly hold all the UNO playing cards.  It also displays a picture of Pinkalicious dressed in her usual attire while holding her signature wand and pink cupcakes.  This game includes 112 custom UNO cards featuring Pinkalicious, her friends, and the foods that have made Pinkalicious famous.  The artwork on the cards is very well done.  They are bright and colorful and lend themselves for many hours of Pinkalicious UNO fun.  If you are a UNO and Pinkalicious lover, you can't go wrong with this edition of UNO. 

Pinkalicious UNO can be found on Amazon.  Pinkalicious UNO retails for $18.99

Pinkalicious: Purplicious Doll

"When Pinkalicious mixes pink and blue, it's "Purplicious".  This smaller version of Pinkalicious is adorable.  You can have fun anytime since you can carry her around anywhere you go!  This 12” Pinkalicious soft doll is wearing her artist smock and pink beret as featured in the “Purplicious” book.  There are 3 to collect in all.  This sweet doll retails for $9.97.  It is available at Walmart.


Pinkalicious: Pinkerella is based on the game BINGO!  What a great way to celebrate everything Pink.  Pinkerella is for 2-4 players and is so easy and fun to play.  The object of the game is to fill your game card with the cupcake disc.  You take turns with the other players drawing cards and even trading cards.  If you get a card that matches a picture on your mat, you put a cupcake disc on your game card.  When your card if full, you shout, "PINKERELLA!" and you win!

The Pinkerella game includes 54 cards and 24 cupcake discs.  This is appropriate for children ages 4 and up.  It retails for $9.99.  You can purchase this game at Walmart, Barnes and Nobles, and Amazon.

Congratulations to Nicole C!  The winner will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.
