My Knight and Me Coming Soon To The Cartoon Network




     My Knight and Me, for kids ages 6-10, follows the quests of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire, daring and determined Cat the Princess, and the bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest! Together, the knightly group sets out from the Kingdom of Epic to save the day and brighten the Dark Ages!

   The week before Christmas we were invited to the grand opening of Camelbacks new Galactic Snow Tubing! This new snowtastic adventure is running throughout the winter season and is not to be missed! As always Camelback is always looking to step up their amenities game- which is already amazing (read our full review here) and has really hit the mark with this new nighttime treat!
    Take the complimentary bus-that runs every fifteen minutes from the resort to the bottom of the hill. There you will find a fantastic indoor/outdoor eatery, fire pits, oh and 42 lightning- fast lanes to fly down-alone or with a partner- amongst the night time sky and an amazing soundtrack and light show!
    Snow Tubing is about as much as I can do in the snow- it is a fact universally known to my family that the minute I see snow, well I fall. No joke I look at it, and somehow my feet just give up on me and I fall down. So all I have every really done is snow tubing, which after a while can be pretty bland. So when Camelback offered this new feature I was all about it! The opening ceremony included a very Galactic Lightsaber battle which we all enjoyed but what was even cooler, the ride itself! You take one of two Magic Carpet Lifts up to the top of the mountain, which was a ride in itself, it was a walking sidewalk going up- super neat. Then we hopped in a tube and flew down the mountain with enough speed to be fun, but not so much where you were terrified- perfect. The music playing as well as the strobing lights just added to the excitement. Think of an outdoor club- only cooler because you don't have to dance!

   You can race other participates, or just enjoy a romantic ride for two- there is no wrong way! A perfect way to spend one of your nights at Camelback Resort before heading back into the water park or hitting the sac to go back on the mountain the next day. Honestly there was not one thing wrong with it- and I believe it will be a truly fun addition to your stay at the resort!

The Irish Fairy Door Company Presents The Worry Plague! Now Available!



     The Irish Fairy Door Company was one of my favorite brands that I have come to work with over the past two years-honestly. Their products are simple as well as beautiful and open your child’s mind up to a world of imagination all year long (see our review here).  In addition to their Fairy Door Line, TIFDC has created a wonderful item to help carry your child’s worries away!
       Kids always have a worry or two pec
king at them in the pack of their minds, but it seems that these days, our children have less of a childhood and more and more grown up worries! What a better way to get rid of them then in the magical world of the Fae!
     So here how it works, order your Worry Plague, which is a circular tree trunk that has a small hand-print on it. Your child will place their hand on the plague, and through the magic of the Fae it

Wicked Cool Toys Present The New Cabbage Patch Kids Line!

 
     Wicked Cool Toys has a great way of reinventing toys for our childhood and bringing them back to the top for our children to enjoy. Us 80’s kids all know what it was like to receive a Cabbage Patch Kid- and we all know the story of how our parents acquired them.
   
 It was even harder back in those days to get your hands on the coveted item of the year, and in the year of the Cabbage Patch there were lines all across America for the chance to get one of these dolls.  My mom was visiting my Great Aunt at the time of the release of the CPK line. She remembers waiting on line for almost three hours with Aunt Anne, waiting to get their hands on one of the dolls. They laughed, and joked, almost cried a couple of times, but in the end they both had a cabbage patch doll in their hands, and a fond memory of when they got it- and I to this day have that same cabbage patch doll on my bed, and my niece comes over to play with it all the time. This doll has seen a lot of love in its time, and continues to as well.

Call Of Duty Dragonfly Drone Available ONLY at Walmart



         I may not know a lot but I do know this. Drones and Call of Duty are both awesome- that is why the pairing (exclusively at Walmart) is a SURE WAY to make your kid do that high pitch scream, that we all aim for, this holiday season!
    Every Sunday Night for as long as I can remember my friends and I play COD online on our Xbox’s. For two hours no matter where we are in the country or sometimes the world, we all get together and try to destroy each other- or sometimes we may even be on the same team. It has been a tradition that we have shared now for now for many years. I am pretty awful at it, which I am reminded by the fact that they say I am pretty awful at it all the time- SO I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW THEM MY NEW DRONE AND NOT SHARE IT WITH THEM!
