Mission Headquarters by MatchBox

Here is a really cool product from MatchBox. The Mission Headquarters is from their Sky Busters line. This toy has some really great features. It includes one plane and several movable parts and compartments. The best part of it all however is the portability. It is the perfect grab and go toy for your little one (ages3+) and it even has a handle!

I tested it out with some 5 year olds. It was a complete success! The movable parts and compartments were a huge hit. The “secret” expanding feature was also very popular. Overall a really great toy!

We were provided with a sample toy to help facilitate this review. All opinions are our own.

POCOYO- Dance, Pocoyo, Dance DVD!

Does your child love to dance? My 20 month old son instantly starts boogying whenever music comes on. So it's no surprise he absolutely loved the new Dance, Pocoyo, Dance! DVD.

Pocoyo is a Spanish pre-school animated television series featuring a small Spanish boy who is full of curiosity. Pocoyo and his animal friends, Elly the elephant, Pato the duck, and Loula the dog, are so adorable and the music encouraged my son to continue having fun for quite some time. He clapped after every song!

The multi-award-winning animated television series Pocoyo is now featured in a new half-hour timeslot during the weekends on Nick Jr., on Saturday’s and Sunday’s at 1.00pm ET/10am PT, complementing the current weekday broadcasts at 4:25 pm Eastern/1:25 pm Pacific. Pocoyo also airs on Univision’s Planeta U on Saturday mornings at 8:30 am; and on select PBS stations nationwide(check local listings). 

Check out the interactive website for kids and parents, Pocoyo World!

Miracle-Gro Kids Grow-A-Plant from Peachtree Playthings

Ava and I recently had the opportunity to review a Miracle-Gro Kids Grow-A-Plant from Peachtree Playthings. We were so excited when it arrived and were pleased to see it was pretty easy to set up, and the instructions were very clear. We planted tomatoes and peppers and waited for them to grow! Ava loves checking in on "her garden". It's funny, she is not really a picky eater, but she is even less picky when she gets to PICK her own food! Amazing! We are now able to go out, pick what we would like for dinner, and then prepare it together in the kitchen. Not only does she get to learn where her food comes from, she gets to learn how to turn it into a delicious meal, it's really fun!

We checked out their website too, and loved reading through the recipes, facts, and learning activities.

Thanks to Peachtree Playthings for the opportunity to review a growing kit. We are excited to pick up the green house next! All opinions are our own.
