UPDATE: winner is...Allison, aka: PeppermintAllie
I have a rule in my house...
It always looks better on TV. That goes for toys, kitchen gagets, even celebrities.
And just like Ralphie in A Christmas Story, The Twofer have had to learn this lesson the hard way.
So many times they see commercials for gagets and toys that 'look so cool Mom!' Finally, after a number of infomercial failures they are starting to listen to the rule.
That is, until now.
Bendaroos are sticky fun without the mess
Bendaroos, those sticky, waxy sticks that you can wind and mush together are actually fun and spark creativity in kids...at least my kids.
So much fun, infact that the girls have spent several nights playing with them and....get this....a Saturday morning! Can you say 'sleep in'?
This is what I woke up to this weekend....
Bendaroos theme packs make great gifts
Want to give it a try but not invest in a whole Bendaroos collection? There are cool new theme packs with 100 or 200 Bendaroos so the investment is small but the creative reward is big. I received a Tropical Island pack to review and The Twofer started with the templates, but quickly started using their imagination to create figures, furniture, and then the got the wood blocks out to make a house for the Bendaroos family!
Even after a few days of playing, we still have lots of Bendaroos left but I'll consider buying more to take with us to the beach for a rainy day. Check out Bendaroos on Facebook for craft ideas, photos, and more.
