I got this chair for Korey when he was about 9 months old. He had just started walking and was having a hard time climbing up and down from our couches and chairs since he was so short. He wanted to have a place of his own to sit.
I looked around online and I found this chair. I also saw a commercial for it on tv and I thought it looked pretty cool. We picked it up from Walmart one evening and brought it home….only to realize that we didn’t have any batteries for it! (How did I forget the batteries????)
We got the bottom piece attached and Korey ran right over to it. He knew it was for him since it’s pretty small. He didn’t care that the buttons didn’t respond so we actually left the batteries out of it for a few days. I think he was just happy to have someplace low to sit and climb.
He likes turning the pages on the little book attached to the arm rest but his favorite thing about it is that he can lift the little seat.
My husband has a PS4 and my kids try to take over it all the time. Since the system was originally purchased for my husband to use, we didn’t have many games for the kids to play.
We did some searching around and found a few games that the kids can play. It was cool to see that some of these games were the same as the games featured on my online games list. Overall, Playstation has a pretty big selection of kids games for the PS4 so let’s go through some of my favorites!
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
I think the Lego team has created a game for every kid. The Marvel Super Heroes edition is a staple at my house. It has a multiplayer option which is obviously important if you have multiple kids in your home. Each mission unlocks a different superhero with a different special power. My kids like it because it has a multiplayer option which is obviously important if you have multiple kids in your home.
Each mission unlocks a different superhero with a different special power. First, you play the mission with the characters provided and once you complete the mission you can go back and play it in Free Play Mode which allows you to use any character that you have unlocked.
Some of the tasks require a special skill which allows you to play each mission multiple times through and discover new things each time. My kids like it because the characters make lots of jokes throughout the gameplay so it never gets old!
Elephant and Piggie are the funniest animals around. Piggie has a big surprise for Elephant but there is one problem…..the surprise isn’t ready yet so Elephant must wait! As we all know, waiting is not easy. Elephant must be patient until the surprise is ready. Can he be patient?
The Day the Crayons Quit
The great thing about this books is that it can help brings out imaginative thinking for your child. Duncan wants to color but when he opens his box of crayons he discovers that his crayons have QUIT! The art is amazing and the story is even better.
Nintendo’s new hybrid gaming system looks is being released soon and although most of the big questions surrounding it have been answered, there is still one BIG question that lots of people are asking. What is the battery life of the Nintendo Switch?
What is the Nintendo Switch?
The Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that can also be used on-the-go. At first glance, this system seems a lot like the Wii U. The difference being the portability if offers. This new system has a tablet-like screen which can be connected directly to your TV, stand alone using a kickstand, or be handheld for gaming anywhere.
Personally, I love the look on my kid’s faces when a box gets delivered and they find out it’s a gift for them! Most kids want as many toys as they can get right. As a parent, I don’t want to spoil my kids but I do like to buy them new things when I can and when the situation fits. So I am always looking for the best toys that I can get them on a budget because let’s face it, I still have bills to pay!
I’ve put together this list of the top 3 cheap toys for kids in a few different categories. Be sure to let me know which ones interest you!
Arts & Crafts
Cool Sand 3D Sandbox – Kinetic Sand Kit
I love everything about Kinetic Sand! Kinetic sand only sticks to itself which is great because you don’t have to worry about it getting all over your house. It’s also great because it’s educational. You can sneak in a little science lesson while letting your kids play!
Plush Craft Pillow Kit
These kits are adorable! There are a bunch of different kits that each feature a different animal or item. There’s a fish, a fox, a penguin, a whale, ice cream, stars, a ladybug, a peace sign and much more. Most of the kits range from $10 – $15 and they are well worth the price!
Crayola Washable Finger Paint
Finger paint!! Yay, let’s do it. The Crayola set of 3 comes with Blue, Green and Red 8 ounce washable finger paints. This is an easy and cheap midday activity for kids of all ages (adults too). Whip out some paper and you’re ready to go.
This costume comes in Small, Medium, and Large sizes. I love the fact that the chest area has the build in muscles! Kids love to play dress up so why not become a superhero for the day. Be super strong and super cute at the same time.
Since Super Man doesn’t have a mask or any head gear, you’ll have to become a hair stylist and slick back your child’s hair to complete the full look!
Batman Action Suit
I love this one because it includes the signature Batman mask and cape. It also features a belt with the bat symbol on it! This one comes in size Medium only with should fit a child 5-8 years old.
The jumpsuit itself is light weight which will definitely give kids the freedom to run around and save the world! The mask is molded so it will keep its shape even if there are flips and kicks needed to defeat villains.
Wonder Woman Costume
I’ve seen many versions of this costume. Some with pants, some with stars on the skirt and some with extra accessories. For the price, this one is just fine. Kids will love the fact that it comes with a set of armbands and a headdress.
The skirt is about knee length in the front and back but slightly higher on the sides. The set comes in a very forgiving size Small. There are even Wonder Woman wigs sold separately!
As Seen on YouTube and TV
I just ordered this from Amazon for $8.54. We’ve watched tons of YouTube videos featuring this stuff so I can’t wait to surprise my kids with it.
You fill your bathtub with water then you add in the packet of little beads. Well, I guess it’s more like a sand texture. Once you add that to your water, you can use your hands to turn it into slime!
This toy has been all over commercials and the internet. After the release of the Fidget Cube, people were looking for another way to keep their hands busy.
What started off as a way to treat anxiety has now taken over the kid world…. and YouTube.
