Is Lego Ninjago A Good Gift For Your Kids?

By Joshua J Anderson

The holidays are coming closer and all of the little boys have their eyes on Lego Ninjago. Boys spend a lot of their time using their imaginations to create dream worlds of fun and possible future. Lego has remained on the cutting edge of providing the tools a boy needs to exercise his creativity. A large portion of a boys play involves things that they wish to do when they get older. Some what to be police, some firefighters but a less practical yet very common planned career path is that of a ninja. The Ninjago series

provides a way to let these feelings out.

Lego Ninjago Product Reviews

There is a lot of positive feedback on

this product and very few negative

comments about it. Reviews rave about

how it combines the building power of

Lego with the battling aspect that kids

have come to love. Although a few

reviews claim that it is overpriced it is

generally agreed that if so, not by much.

They say that it has a lot of playing

potential. One review calls it the best set

by Lego since Bionicle. Overall a great toy with a lot of thought put behind it.

Lego Ninjago Features

As is the case with most Lego themes, the Ninjago series has a number of different kits and features that are available. There are multiple kits, a video game and, of course, a number of other related products. The real magic is in the kits. Not only does it contain the building ingenuity that has come to be expected from Lego, there is an involved battle aspect. The kits includes spinner parts so that various


characters can practice the art of spinjitsu. Spinning the characters at each other like tops, the goal is to knock down the opposing character.

For many reasons this is an amazing toy. The building aspect is always fun. Of course there is the imagination that is put into creating the world that these characters live out their adventures. In a way the child playing with these toys become part of the adventures. The battling bring in a factor that is incorporated into a great many of the toys today. This allows for a relatively non-violent way for young boys to release their aggressions and need for rivalry. Overall this is a great product. The Lego Ninjago set is a great addition to any boy's holidays.

Is Lego Star Wars 3 The Best Gift For Your Kids?

By Joshua J Anderson

Lego Star Wars 3 is the perfect gift to give especially since Christmas is fast approaching and it's the perfect season for gift giving! Kids are kids and they will always want to receive gifts and toys from those close to their heart. If you are having problems with what to and not to buy, consider your problem solved! I happen to come across this site that advertises the most popular gifts for kids this season, and mind you, the number of toys is more than you can ever imagine. In the said site, you can browse through

pages that will unravel the mysteries of

gift choosing 101. There are different

categories like top gifts for boys, top gifts

for girls, toddlers and preschoolers and

most popular Christmas gifts all available

in the market and that is how I came to

know about the Lego Star Wars 3. Prices

varies significantly so you can choose the

toys that are budget friendly and of

maximum quality but I really recommend

Lego Star Wars 3 since it encompasses

durability, affordability, and quality. If

you are still having problems what to

choose and quite unsure whether or not it's the perfect gift for you to give, let me give you some guidelines which will aid you in choosing the best Christmas gift for your special little one.

Lego Star Wars 3: Durability and Practicality

If you prefer to give toys which are extravagant and a little luxurious, think again.

Kids play with toys - and here, play means throw, toss and even break. So if you can't afford to see your lavish present being torn down, pricey toys won't be your choice. On the other hand, you might as well consider picking something which will be more budget friendly with the same level of excitement the toy will bring to your recipient. Take the LEGO Star Wars 3 for example. It is simple yet very fascinating and will be enjoyed ultimately by you and your receiver. If you're afraid of your gift being thrown and toss into the air, it's quite alright since Lego Star Wars 3 was really made to disassemble itself and reform with the aid of your addressee's little hands.

Quality and Child-friendly

Stop thinking that Lego Star Wars 3 is only for the boys. As a matter of fact, girls enjoy playing with Lego as much as the boys do and the Star Wars 3 will make it more attractive to their little eyes. Another thing that you should consider is the quality of the toy you wish to give. You sure do not want to give a toy she or he will enjoy spending time playing the entire December and crying because it smashed a got broken the entire January. Be practical and most especially economical.

If we have the same way of thinking, LEGO Star Wars 3 is the best gift for you to give. Don't hesitate to browse and who knows? Maybe your special gift is just some clicks away.


The Deluxe Magnetic Responsibility Chart For Kids Of All


By Joshua J Anderson

Whether your child is leaving the

toddler stage or is in the pre-teen years

the Melissa & Doug deluxe magnetic

responsibility chart is a great gift idea.

It also makes a unique present for

aunts, uncles, and grandparents to give.

There are many benefits of using a

chart to track chores and daily routines.

Kids will not have an excuse when their

requirements are spelled out and

organized by the day. They will always

know what they need to do and when they need to do it.

Parents can use the chart to determine if rewards should be given or if kids have earned special privileges. When kids hear reminders over and over they tend to tune parents out. Having a special place to remind them of what they should be doing eliminates the need for constant reminders.

The product features a wood base and a magnetic surface for placing the responsibility and reward tags in the right place. It also includes a dry erase board.

The board can be used for chores that are not listed or for motivational messages. It is adaptable to many different family situations.

Though the product is aimed toward younger children it can be used to communicate with older kids. The dry erase board will allow for specialized reminders. Many of the message magnets are applicable to both younger and older children. It is helpful for teaching younger kids to stick to a routine or schedule and


may make doing some of the required activities more fun, when children compete with each other or try to earn points.

The product is designed as a case that opens and closes. It can be stored on a shelf and opened at the end of the day to record completed tasks. It can be opened and hung on a wall for families with multiple children. This is a good idea for families to keep track of the completed tasks without losing any of the parts of the kit.

Having a dry erase board means changing messages will be simpler and there is no water required for a clean surface. The product comes with a handle so it can be taken on trips or vacations. It can even go to grandma's house if kids are spending a few days away from home. The product is reasonably priced at under $20 and can be purchased online. It makes an excellent gift or a handy tool for moms and dads.

Why Girls Want Lalaloopsy Dolls

By Joshua J Anderson

Girls like lalaloopsy dolls because of their look.

The figures are very different from typically babies on store shelves. They are plastic with floppy arms and legs and a slightly over-sized head with button eyes incorporated.

This is what makes them so adorable. The larger head lets their personalities show and gives them plenty of character. They look like a cross between a rag doll and an animated cartoon character.

Features of lalaoopsy dolls

The figures are made entirely of plastic. They come with plastic hair and with changeable plastic outfits. Each character comes with a themed outfit to enhance the individual personality. However, there are outfits sold separately for more variety. Each character has a very unique personality and comes with different accessories. Dot Starlight comes with a red bird. Tipsy Tumbelina comes with her own white terrier dog with a bow. Bea spells-a-lot comes in a plaid jumper, high top tennis shoes, and a pet owl. Mittens fluff N stuff comes in a blue polka dot skirt, a padded vest over her shirt and a plump pet that could be whatever a girl


wants it to be. Jewel Sparkes comes in a glittery pink and rose dress with a matching crown, and a pink kitty as a companion. Each of the lalaloopsy dolls weighs less than three pounds so they can be played with by younger and older girls. The figures are about 14 inches in length.

Advantages of lalaloopsy dolls

Because they are made of hard plastic the figures can be easily washed with mild soap and water. There is no need to put them in the washer though the clothes may be hand washed. They do not tear or come apart like other types of dolls.

Durability is an excellent feature for a younger girl who may drop or throw the item. Many buyers mention the ease in changing outfits, unlike other dolls that require bending arms or legs to get clothing on.

Some additional thoughts about lalaloopsy dolls

Some parents may find the products a little on the expensive side especially if they want the full set of dolls. They can be found in most retail stores and are readily available in online toy stores. Most of the easier to find characters cost no more than other dolls. Though they are not soft and cuddly girls enjoy lalaloopsy dolls due to their appearance and lively personalities.

Providing Children With Many Hours Of Fun: The Fisher-

Price Imaginext Space Shuttle And Tower

By Joshua J Anderson

Any parent or grandparent who has set aside time for examining the various Christmas gifts for kids should take a look at the Fisher-Price Imaginext space shuttle and tower.

The boy or girl who has received such a toy as a present can look forward to many hours of fun. Even children as young as two have been known to spend countless hours enjoying this exciting new plaything.

Children like to place the toy's two figures in the tower's elevator, and to have that pair ride to the top of an impressive and towering piece. Then the same youngsters get a thrill from having those two figures enter the shuttle's cockpit. Of course, that fun activity follows a series of equally exciting maneuvers.

For example, the crane that goes next to the shuttle can rotate. Therefore, a child can pretend that the time for a launch is approaching. He or she can have the crane rotate away from the rocket. Moreover, he or she is able to detach it from the towering piece next to it. In that way, a boy or girl has a chance to set the stage for the next round of action.

That next stage incorporates a blinking of the shuttle's lights and a sounding of the noises that are associated with an actual takeoff. Often young boys and girls like to countdown the seconds until that liftoff will take place. Those young fellows and those little ladies welcome the opportunity to practice that skill.

All those exciting changes take place after a child has pressed the appropriate button. He or she will cause the rocket's wings to pop out. He or she will be ushering in yet another opportunity to re-create the world of an astronaut.

That youngster can hold the shuttle's arm, as it flies through an imaginary space.

He or she can have the solar panels open and close. He or she can have the crew land on the moon or some other extra terrestrial body. At that point, the two figures can explore the imaginary terrain.

A review of posted testimonials reveals the thrills experienced by the young people who have played with this toy. Only one mother shared with Internet users a complaint from her daughter. That girl had joined her twin brother, as he let the Imaginext fire up his imagination. She objected to the fact that this modern-day plaything lacked a female astronaut.

means that are far from what we used to do

To test the preschool's ability in numbers, there are games that are designed for counting and basic mathematical operations.
