Boon Water Bugs review and Giveaway 6/3–CLOSED

RANDOM.ORG DREW NUMBER 36-JAYNE.  THE WINNER HAS BEEN EMAILED AND HAS 48 HRS TO REPLY TO WINNING EMAIL NOTIFICATION.  THANKS FOR READING AND ENTERING!

Boon Inc was started my a designer named Rebecca Finell. A messy toddler bathtub led to her creating the Frog pod to hold all those bathtub toys efficiently. Ryan Fernandez helped her create this successful business

Boon Inc. works to create the most innovative gear from toys, to safety gear, to every day needs.  Their design studio works all the time to create the best and most affordable gear for you.

I always admired the unique look and design of Boon Inc. Products.  I had the exciting opportunity to review Boon’s Water Bugs with my soon to be 2 year old.    The water bugs set has a unique and seemingly simple design.  I opened the packaging and examined the pieces for myself.  As I gripped the net I realized how thought out the design really is.  The bulb-like handle makes it very easy to grip and keep a hold of.

The Water Bug pieces themselves have a genius design too.  They are bigger and easy to grip.  One piece so no worries about small parts for little ones.  They float on the water in the tub (or pool with summer coming up) and are easy to find in the tub.  My little guy plays with these even when he’s not in the tub.

The net is attached firmly.  This is a very well made toy.  There is nothing flimsy or concerning about it.   At only $10 for the set this is a great toy to give your little ones for the tub or summer fun.

Here’s some picture of my little guy enjoying his Boon Water Bugs

My son had a ball scooping them up and dumping them out.  He also would line the bugs up on the side of the tub and push them in the water or the net one by one.  I would hold each one up and say “blue bug”, “white bug”, etc hoping we could get some learning in too.  We also did counting.

Aerobie Sprint Flying Ring review and #giveaway 5/30–CLOSED

RANDOM.ORG DREW NUMBER 26-RAVEN IN A BLUE ROOM.  WINNER HAS BEEN EMAILED AND HAS 48 HRS TO REPLY TO WINNING EMAIL NOTIFICATION.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR ENTERING!

The end of the school year is in sight. The kids are anticipating warm weather and summer vacation. Do you have to encourage your kids to stay active during the summer? Or after a month of vacation do you start hearing “mom I’m bored, there’s nothing to do!”

Aerobie offers outdoor toys that help your kids stay active and get outside. One of several products Aerobie offers is the Aerobie Sprint Flying Ring. The Sprint Flying Ring is comparable to a frisbee in that you it’s a catch and throw activity. After that, it’s far superior to a traditional plastic frisbee.

The Aerobie Sprint Flying Rings are different from a traditional plastic frisbee in a lot of ways.  You’ll notice the ring shape first of all.  These Flying Rings are light weight, easy to catch and throw because of the design, and made of a durable soft rubber material.  It’s patented design makes it fly twice as far a  traditional frisbee.  Made in the USA.

My 7 yr old and I went out to try out the Sprint Flying Ring.  He threw it and it went so far it landed on the roof.  I took him down to a field near our house and we spent at least 45 minutes throwing and catching.  The design made it easy for both my 7 yr old and myself to throw and catch it.  I know with a regular plastic frisbee you were sometimes stubbing your finger trying to catch it, especially if someone really gave it a hard throw.  These are soft and don’t hurt your hand (or any other major body part) it might hit.  It’s a smaller 10 inch design that makes it easy to take with you on a picnic, vacation, camping, or whatever.  At only $7 a piece it won’t break the bank either.

Aerobie Sprint Discs are sold in the US and Internationally.  For a list of stores near your that sell Aerobie products you can check the “” Category on their website.  Just click on the hyperlinked USA or International link.

Draculacon III happening next weekend May 21, 2011

I thought I would post about this since it’s a unique event that may appeal to some of my readers.

I’ll be honest I’ve never attended this event but I’d heard of some of the interesting events that take place and see some of the unique cars and costumes involved in this event. It’s not an event for everyone but it’s definitely different.

Draculacon III is taking place next weekend May 21, 2011 from 1 pm to midnight in Windber, PA.  This event is perfect for the Dracula fans, ghost chasers, haunted house fans, and more.  Each year they change it up and bring in authors, ghost hunters, occult experts, movie stars from creepy movies, speakers, and bands that fit the theme.  Some people really get into this and you see creepy cars and costumes.

This years line up includes:

–Kyra Schon who was a child actress in the 1968 version of Night of the Living Dead.  She’ll be speaking and hanging out at the Grand Midway Hotel in Windber (which is said to be haunted) and having a question and answer session after she speaks.  Last year they had the actor who played the original Eddy Munster.

–Rosemary Ellen Guiley is an expert on the paranormal and supernatural.  She has written many books on the subject and her books have been translated into 14 different languages.

–Adam Blai is a religious demonologist.  He works with the Roman Catholic Church and will be speaking at this event.

There are also several other authors that will be present and speaking.

Also included in the line up is a bunch of musical groups that includes: Bridge City Bombshells, Cadillac Creeps, and more.

I found this website which has more details.  You can also purchase tickets for the event on the site:  http://www.thecemetery.net/Dcon/Draculacon2011.html
