Well, Woobo is basically a robot. It’s an “interactive companion” for kids. I started to see ads for this just recently on Instagram and Facebook. I even saw a few videos on Facebooks…all of a sudden. This made me ask myself, “What is Woobo?”
The parent company is putting lots of money into the promotion for this product….even though it hasn’t launched yet…so, I’m guessing this will be a big hit. It may not even be a great toy, but the money that this company is putting out mixed with the fact that the parent company seems to be hitting all the major toy shows in 2017 pretty much spell S.U.C.C.E.S.S. for them. ..given the sales trends of similar toys.
My kids are sitting with me while I’m typing this post out and they are laughing about the title. I’m sure I will have to buy this one!
Here’s how to play:
Poopyhead Card Game – The Game Where Number 2 Always Wins! – All must play their cards on a pile, keeping in mind that they play the right order: Toilet – Poo – Paper – Wash your hands. Once a player cannot play a card, he immediately pushes the whoopie cushion. Now, whoever has the most cards left, will need to place a poo on his head. After 5 games, the player with the most poo on his head loses!
My thought’s after research:
This looks like a good buy to me. It gives kids a reason to say the word poop. They say it all day anyway so at least it gives them a chance to get it out of their system….no pun intended! I like the fact that the little swirls of “poop” have elastic bands attached to keep them on your head. I’ve played games before that expect you to balance things on your head…not a good look. I also like the fact that this is a card game. It seems really hard these days to find a card game for kids. I mean, you can find the oldies like Go Fish and Uno but after a while, you may want to entertain the silly sense of humor our kids have. Believe me, they will love you for it.
Another great card game is Phase 10. We play it pretty often in my family. I like it because I can even get my little ones in on the action.
Another HOT item my kids are BEGGING for. It’s Hatchimals!!!!
Here’s what the manufacturer had to say about it:
Hatchimals are magical creatures that live inside of eggs. Who’s inside? It’s a surprise. Each egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals. Love and care for yours inside the egg and its eyes will light up as it makes cute sounds, telling you how it’s feeling. Once you’ve played with it enough, you’ll see rainbow eyes and that means it’s time to hatch. Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own, your touch encourages them to peck their way out of the egg. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Once hatched, you get to raise your furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Your Hatchimal sings ‘Hatchy Birthday’ each time it enters a new stage. Teach yours to walk, talk, dance, play games and more, it will even repeat what you say in its own voice. Hatchimals are for ages 5+ years. Hatchimals live inside eggs. It’s a surprise who’s inside. Hold them to hear their heartbeats, flip them for fun, tap and they’ll tap back Hatchimals can’t hatch without you When you see rainbow eyes from inside the egg, your Hatchimal is ready to hatch. Encourage it with your touch as it really pecks out of its egg Out of egg, it’s time to raise your Hatchimal through 3 stages.

How to Play:
Since Hatchimals live inside of eggs you need to love and care for yours inside the egg and its eyes will light up as it makes cute sounds to tell you how it feels and what it needs. Once you’ve played with it enough, you’ll see rainbow eyes—that means its time to hatch! Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own. You’ll need to touch them to encourage them to peck their way out of the egg. Then you raise your Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Your Hatchimal sings “Hatchy Birthday” each time it enters a new stage. It can also learn to walk, dance, play games and more! It will even repeat what you say in its own voice!
My personal thoughts: Hummmm….. I think this toy is pretty similar to the Furby toy I used to play with with I was younger. I would rather just buy a real Furby for my kids to play with honestly. I’ve watched some YouTube footage of kids (and adults) opening and hatching Hatchimals and I wasn’t really impressed. Some big stores couldn’t keep them on the shelves around Christmas time so maybe I just don’t see the fun because I’m an “old lady” LOL
If you’ve tried this toy please leave a comment below letting me know your thoughts! Did your kids like Hatchimals?
Below are my favorite 2 websites that I use to help my sons with their science homework and questions. They often come to me asking the craziest questions! Where do I go to find the answer….NOWHERE. I have them research the topics themselves. We do it all online with the below resources!
This seems like an obvious one right! I found this website while doing homework with my first grader. They feature hundreds of articles all sorted by topic. This has been a LIFESAVER!
My favorite thing about this site is that the articles are packed full of interesting facts that can make mini reports for your kids. Sometimes, I take a look at the site just to see what’s going on in the world.
When my kids need to find science news, another thing that we do is look at the major news networks. Once my kids see or hear something that is interesting to them, we go to the web to find more facts.

My kids and I have been seeing commercials and YouTube videos about this game all over the place! It’s theHasbro Pie Face Game.
Here’s what the manufacturer had to say about it:
The hilarious Pie Face game is filled with fun and suspense, and somebody’s bound to get surprised! Players load the arm with whipped cream (not included) or the included sponge, then take turns sliding their heads through the mask and spinning the spinner. But, watch out! The game unit could go off at any time giving someone a face full of whipped cream! (Whipped cream not included.)
