Harry Potter Games from Pressman Toys

Pressman Toys

WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM

Having a family who love Harry Potter, shopping can be very easy. My family also big on having game nights so when I saw that Pressman Toys has Harry Potter board games, I knew I had to get them. Pressman has come out with two Harry Potter board games; the Harry Potter Magical Beasts and the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze. Both of these games are 2-4 players but the Magical Beasts game is ages 8 and up and the Tri-Wizard Maze game is ages 5 and up.

We decided to have a game night with my eldest daughter, the 18 year old boy, and the 8 year old boy since he is able to play both and myself. The first one we played was the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze game since we knew it wasn’t going to be a long game. This game is like a mix between Trouble and Sorry; it takes the best part of both games and puts it together. Each player chooses a color based on the character from the Tri-Wizard tournament and then you start to play. Each player takes a turn to play and pick up a card when prompted and the first player to get all four of their pieces in their home spots wins! We had a lot of fun playing this game and even played a few rounds because it didn’t take too long and everyone loved it that much!

After we played that game, we played the other one which is basically Clue with a twist. Each player chooses a character and a spot to start on and takes turn rolling the dice trying to get as many cards as they can to make a match with one of the beasts on their main card. Everyone has the same card and when they land on a spot signifying one of four decks of cards, they can either take one from the top of the corresponding pile or can steal that card from another person. There is a special side on the die though that means it’s time to flip the board to the other side and play from there until another person rolls that symbol and it flips to the other side. The first person to get all four categories to match one of the beasts wins. We really liked this game too because we are a really competitive family who love to play games with each other and be the best. I know my kids loved these games and that my oldest childrens’ significant others liked them too because I caught the four of them playing together on multiple occasions. In conclusion, we love these games and will definitely be looking at more Pressman Toy games and toys in the future!

Positive Art

Positive Art

WEBSITE FACEBOOK

My oldest son and I love to draw, color and bullet journal. We are always looking for new products to add to our collection. The writing/drawing/coloring tools that Positive Art sent me to review made me very happy and excited to use in my favorite adult coloring book plus I immediately did a few pages in my bujo. Positive art created their products because of how popular adult coloring has become over the last few years. It’s such a great way to relieve stress and for adults to be creative and just.. color!

120 bold and vibrant colors that are all unique in colors. The fine point ink have longer lasting ink wells than before and are acid-free and non-toxic. They include neon, metallic, glitter, standard and pastel color gel pens that are perfect for adults and children. We love our pens that we got for review. We use them from coloring in our bujos, our coloring books, drawing, writing letters, and even the kids like to use them, too. I haven’t found one yet that has been dried up or wrote bad!

60 unique and bold colors in a metal carrying case. Comes in a wide range of colors that are non-toxic and acid free. The tip is a super fine 0.4 mm which is great for coloring, writing and designing. Use these water-based fineliner pens for coloring pages, finishing up details in drawings, and adding special touches to an activity or art project. I love the thin lines that these create for my bujo. Not to mention my son loves to detail his artwork with the fineliner pens. I love that they come in a nice metal case and individual slots for the pens, because they are easy carry around, and if you are missing a pen, you will know it.

About (taking from website): Whether you’re more into oil painting that filling a scrapbook; if you prefer sculpting over papier mache; or if you like tapestry work and upholstery rather than knitting sweaters, then Positive Art is the store for you. We offer the best names and brands in art supplies and equipment at incredibly attractive rates.

Daily Meds with Pill Thing

Pill Thing

WEBSITE

I have a few diseases that cause me to have to take many medicines and vitamins as I am severely deficient. With taking as many as 15 pills and growing, I needed to find a pill organizer that fit my growing medicine “collection”. Plus I have 3 kids under 7 and I get scared that they will get into and either hurt themselves or I will lose my medicine. So when Pill Things said they would work with me on a review, I chose a pill organizer and a pill case that locks. They had so many items that it was very hard to choose what I wanted.

EZ View Complete Monthly Pill Organizer with Removable Pill Cups and Medication Log: This clear 35 compartment container with 33 smaller ones, will keep all your medicine organized. The 2 larger compartments are great for extra accessories such as pill splitters or crushers. I used mine for my inhaler; just taken apart and my nasal medicine. It comes with clear cups (39) to ensure that no meds get mixed up. The cups fit snug inside each of the square containers ready for the next dosage. It also comes with 1 medicine log to keep track of what you have taken. More can be downloaded off the website. Its large- dimensions: 11 3/4 in x 8.75 in x 1.5 in. and can plan out the whole month. Use with or without the pill cups (but I prefer it with the cups!)

Locking Medication Cases: These combination lockable cases are made of a durable material to make it lightweight. Lined inside for easy cleaning, and a carrying handle for traveling. The combinations make it easy so that you don’t have to worry about a key. I chose a combination that I knew I could remember and told my oldest child and my husband so in case they needed to get into my medicines. I also added it into my phones medical ID. The case comes in 3 sizes small, medium and large. I got the small for review and was able to put about half of my meds in (6 odd shaped bottles). I think that I would have been better off with a large case, but I just chose which meds I thought needed locked up with the little kids and teenagers in and out of my house such as; narcotics and anything that could seriously harm my little ones.

About (taken from website): PillThing.com was founded in 1998 to bring hard to find medication management items together in one place. We carry the items that drug stores refuse to carry or have over priced. Our low overhead allows us to make these products available for less than brick and mortar stores. Helping people to live in good health and maintain independence is what we love to do.

Our Guesses:

LaToya Jackson:

  • LaToya grew up in the public’s eye because she came from an extremely famous family. The five aliens could represent the Jackson 5. She could be doing this show to show people that she can sing and not compare her to her family. Her voice also sounds extremely similar. LaToya is also a spokesperson for the Psychic Friends Network. The comments may have hurt her because she has recorded many things like songs and videos professionally. LaToya was a very young child when her family got famous and the Jacksons are one of the most famous families in Hollywood. LaToya is also a quadruple threat because she is a singer, songwriter, actress, and business woman. Latoya Jackson traveled with her brother Michael to New York when he was in ‘The Wiz.’ LaToya is known for having had plastic surgery so she is used to being poked and prodded. The “ooh, that’s hot” was said with a potato on the plate and LaToya has a song named ‘Hot Potato.’ With the police badge, LaToya was one of the celebrities on ‘Armed and Famous’ which was filmed in Muncie, IN which is what the police badge said it was from.

The Internet’s Best Guesses:

  • Kendall Jenner
  • Lindsay Lohan
  • Toni Braxton

Our Guesses:

Rumer Willis:

  • Rumer is the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore making her pretty much the closest thing to Hollywood Royalty as you could get. She is from Hailey, Idaho so the newspaper would fit. “Finding Gold” could be the gold trophy she brought home after winning Dancing with The Stars. She is also a Leo and has a large Lion tattoo on her left arm which would explain her costume. Rumer is also on the TV show Empire which would also explain the Lion. Rumer has sang and acted in TV shows and on stage but has never come out with her own songs or albums and she may be trying to reach a larger audience with this show. Rumer starred in the movie ‘Hostage’ with her father, Bruce Willis. Saying it’s her destiny could be a nod to her on Dancing With The Stars where she danced to ‘Bootylicious’ by Destiny’s Child. Rumer and her family have gone backstage at the musical ‘Wicked’ which is basically what happened before the Wizard of Oz. The hair scrunchie is a nod at her mom, Demi Moore, who wore her hair up in scrunchies in the past.

The Internet’s Best Guesses:

  • Kendall Jenner
  • Kourtney Kardashian
  • Ashley Judd
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Demi Moore
  • Michelle Williams
