All About Transformers and Your Chance to Win

My son is all about superheroes and loves playing with Transformers. He was very excited to watch Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Predacons Rising and the Transformers Rescue Bots episodes, so he can replay the stories with the Hasbro Optimus Prime and Megatron Transformers toys.

Lots of Fun We Had a Around the Theme of Despicable Me

Since Despicable Me 2 started playing in the theatres July 3rd, it has been about minions and Gru in our home. We enjoy playing Operation and Monopoly Hasbro board games with the Despicable Me theme. We went to Home Depot and my children enjoyed making the cute Lucy's car, while wearing the minion hard hat, a badge/pin and apron.

Win a World Series Yahtzee Hasbro Game Before The Canada Day Weekend

This World Series Yahtzee game is a new way to play the classic dice-rolling challenge of Yahtzee. We enjoyed playing this fast paced game, as all the players can roll at the same time without waiting for one another. We have to roll out the right combinations faster than the other players to win.

Toys that children will enjoy

All children enjoy playing with toys, and I think this must be encouraged as it helps them grow their imagination.  These are some of the toys that my children enjoy playing with...

Family Time with Memorable Board Games & Win your own

I think sometimes we spend a little too much time as a family watching movies and shows especially on Netflix :) than playing a friendly interactive game.  Sometimes with hectic schedules we forget to spend quality time playing with each other.
The upcoming family day weekend reminds me that we need to make it a routine to sit around our family room and play interactive board games. This will allow us to reconnect, reenergize relationships and create memories.  Hasbro has a broad collection of over 60 timeless games that the whole family can enjoy.

JENGA Boom Game is similar to the classic JENGA game and is aimed for everyone over the age of 6 years.  We need to delicately pull the blocks out of the stack without knocking it down. With this JENGA Boom, we have to move fast because the detonator is pulled before we take our turn, and this is like a timer.  In order to win we have to get our block out before the time runs out and the stack "explodes."  This game includes 36 JENGA hardwood blocks, toy detonator, stacking sleeve and instructions and can be played alone or with more players.  

Some people might be offended by the violent aspect of the game i.e. it being called a "detonator" etc., if we keep aside this "opinion" then it is a fun game for the family to play and try to remove the block before it all comes down.  My children enjoyed laughing when the blocks came down before we got a chance to carefully remove the block.  We will be practicing this more during the long weekend :)

The CLUE The Classic Mystery Game is for everyone over 8 years and is played with 2 to 6 players.  This game includes Mansion Game board, 1 Yellow Murder Envelope, 1 Detective Notepad, 6 Character tokens, 21 Black CLUEDO cards, 13 Red Bonus cards, 6 Weapon tokens, 2 Dice and Game Guide.
We have to be detectives and crack the case of who killed the millionaire Samuel Black by questioning everything to unravel the mystery and finding clues; Who did it? Where? etc. The person who solves the murder first wins.  This is a fun twist on the classic mystery game and features new characters and a two-player version.  I haven't played the classic before so this game is new to me.

The ZYNGA Draw Something Game is for everyone over 8 years.  There is no need to be an artist to win this fun-filled Draw Something game.  While one player draws, everyone else shouts out their guesses at what they're drawing.  Whoever guesses the word earns coins along with the drawer, and the harder the word, the more coins you earn.  To win, the person has to have 15 coins.  We really enjoyed this game and I think it does test our artistic skills :) and imagination so people can guess correctly.  This game includes 4 draw stations, 180 cards, 4 crayons, 4 pads of paper, 4 coin tracker clips and game guide.  My children enjoy playing this game on the iPad so it was nice to have something physical to play with instead.
I remember spending lots of time playing board games with my brothers and friends when I was little.   Sometimes I feel my children are missing making these memories because of all the technology that surrounds us.  Hope we will all get to play some fun board games and reconnect with our families during this weekend and then make it more of a regular routine to create lasting memories.
To help you get started and have your own family time playing board games, enter this giveaway below through the rafflecopter below and win the ZYNG Draw Something Game.  This giveaway is open to everyone in Canada and ends on March 15th.

Sharing the Love with Play-doh

Instead of giving lollipops and candy why not give these cute 2oz containers of play-doh to your child's classmates.  Children over 2 years will enjoy these cute colourful containers of play-doh, which will allow them to make whatever they want.  My daughter made small heart shapes and my son made a play-doh flower for me :)
I enjoyed playing with the play-doh as well, while showing  my kids how to make flowers with it.  
These containers of play-doh will keep children entertained for quite a while, and I am sure many parents and teachers will appreciate this :)
I like that the package comes with 15 containers and stickers for us to personalize and place on the container.  I used a marker to personalize it because pencils and regular pens didn't work well.  
These play-doh containers, along with the printable cards below would be awesome treats for our children's friends at school.

An animated series based on Hasbro's Littlest Pet Shop

My children really enjoyed watching Littlest Pet Shop: Little Pets, Big Adventure.  This is the first DVD collection based on Hasbro's popular Littlest Pet Shop brand toys.  
This new animated series has five fun episodes that will entertain children.  The DVD also has bonus features such as colouring sheets, "A look behind the pet shop doors" and an offer for a virtual collectable pet on the Littlest Pet Shop App. 

This animated comedy series follows Blythe Baxter and her father as they move into a Big City apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop store.  The store has an amazing day camp for pets of all kinds including a doggie diva, dancing gecko, a sweet, adorable panda and others.  The real adventure begins when Blythe discovers that she can understand and talk to all of the pets. Blythe joins the pets on fantastical adventures that include uproarious song and dance sequences.

My children really enjoyed the show as they told me how funny it was.  My son thought it was quite funny because the animals were talking and he was laughing when he told me that his favourite part was when the hedgehog rolled down.  
Your children will enjoy this DVD too, so don't forget to preorder it through Amazon as it will be available on January 15th.
Update: The winner is Lindsay

My little pony: Friendship is Magic Adventures in the Crystal Empire

My little pony: Friendship is Magic Adventures in the Crystal Empire is on DVD.  My children were excited to watch this entertaining five episodes and the bonus features.
In Adventures in the Crystal Empire, a magical empire suddenly appears in the arctic north of Equestria and Princess Celestia needs Twilight Sparkle and her friends to find a way to protect it.  My daughter's favourite part is when Princess Celestia's horn got power when she was looking at the Crystal heart.  Both my children liked when the evil pony king was conquered by the Princess's power.
Princess Celestia
Here is some fun information about a few My little pony characters.
Rainbow Dash is a capable, athletic pony that lives for adventure.  This proud and mischievous character is always around to help in danger and proves to be a true hero.
Fluttershy is a graceful, fawn like filly who is shy, gentle, serene and soft spoken.  She cares for all her animal friends and her pony friends treasure her kindness and help her come out of her shyness.    
Pinkie Pie is giggly, playful and brimming over with energy.  The silliest pony around and nothing makes this pony happier than making her friends smile and giggle.  
Princess Celestia taught Twilight Sparkle that friendship is a special kind of magic.  She is a natural born leader that is eager to learn and help.
Applejack has grown up working hard to keep her family's famous apple business growing.  This pony is known to be the most down-to-earth, resourceful and dependable pony.  She is not afraid to get her hooves dirty.  She has an impeccable ability to break down a situation to its core and fix it fast.
