First up, Primary Science Set and Spark Talking Microscope



Both are perfect for the little scientist in your life! The science kit comes with 12 pieces perfect for little hands and activity cards. The microscope has a 5X magnification, 12 pre-made slides, and it narrates all kids of cool facts.

My Discovery World Map



Move the 3D airplane all around this unique world placemat and learn about the regions through 5 different modes including quiz and music modes.

 Alex Sticker Factory



Make stickers from a picture you cut out, from a stencil, or from your own unique drawing. Then roll them through the sticker making machine and hand them out to your friends! We just gave one of these to a 5 year old for her birthday and my 7 year olds wanted to keep it. So obviously the Discovery Store toys cover a range when it comes to age.

Discovery Store Toys that Dads will Love to Play

As part of my involvement with the Discovery Store Toys for a Year Giveaway I wanted to share with my readers a little more about some of the toys you can win. I've decided to group the toys together and for this post I decided to look at toys that Dads will be tempted to borrow.



NASA Space Mission

Discovery Channel Store NASA Space Mission Play Set

Living so close to the Air & Space Museum, I have a soft spot in my heart for all things NASA and especially the Space Shuttle. (Totally random tip - when visiting DC be sure to head to the Udvar Hazy Air & Space Museum where you can see an Space Shuttle up close and personal)

Discovery Walkie Talkie Watch Set

Discovery Channel Store Walkie Talkie Watch SetPerfect for the Dad, I mean kid, that likes to play spy, this set of walkie talkies have adjustable wrist bands, flip out antennaes, and VOX technology that allows you to talk without touching a button! Actually, these could come in handy at the beach, at the mall, or even as we explore Disney. I might get a second set so that each member of the family can stay in touch while we are on the go.


Radio Control Iron Eagle Helicopter

Discovery Channel Store RC Helicopter

Dads, be honest. Raise your hand (or leave a comment) if you already have an RC helicopter. The Mister has one, my brother has one. These were big sellers last year for the holidays and I'm guessing it was the dads buying them! Learning to fly it around the house takes some skill and patience, so it's the perfect gift for the Dad that wants to 'help'.


Techno Gears Marble Mania Extreme 2.0


With over 300 pieces, Dads and their kids can build a different marble run every day AND power it! This is like the Big Boy version of a marble run and I can definitely see The Mister not only building but naming his 'genius' marble designs. Cause, you know, boys like the name things, don't they?

Be sure to enter to win the Discovery Channel Store Toys for a Year giveaway. Click on the red button on the image below before November 20th! Then let me know if you win!

Disney 'Tangled' Giveaway

Every mother of a little girl can relate to the title of Disney's newest movie, 'Tangled'

(UPDATE: The winner of the t-shirts and silly bandz is.. Lori! Congrats!)

Whatever you call it....



Bed Head

Bird's Nest

Hair Game

or 'Tangled', we've all had our fair share of hair nightmares.

So I love the fact that Disney picked up on that and when remaking the classic tale of Rapunzel, opted for a very modern title. Disney knows the people getting those little girls to see the movie are, infact, the ones also brushing out the tangles.

'Tangled' hits theaters Wednesday, November 24th in 3D!

I recently reviewed Rapunzel's 'Tangled' diary (such a cute idea) and so our family of girls is already very excited to see this movie. This will be a perfect Thanksgiving break treat! Here's a brief synopsis of the movie 'Tangled':

When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) is taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a feisty teen with 70 feet of golden hair who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, the unlikely duo sets off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade filled with adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.

 Win a 'Tangled' Prize Pack!



Disney has given me 3 t-shirts and 3 packs of 'Tangled' Silly Bandz to give away to one of my lucky readers. The best part? YOU get to choose the size t-shirts! Want to keep one for yourself? Order one in an Adult size. Want to give your 3 kids each a t-shirt and pack of bandz for the holidays? Order their sizes!
