Some of these are on Amazon, some are only from Marbles the Brain Store. Below you can see the Amazon links {if you are reading in email, jump to the blog to see}

 

These are the ones we own personally, and love!

We have had a PlasmaCar, Rip Rider, and RipSticks for years now and they still get TONS of play! If you don’t own one of these yet, I highly recommend!

I was looking for pictures and found this one that just happens to show my kids with all three of these, at the same time! K is on the PlasmaCar, L is on the Rip Rider, and you can see the blue Rip Stick off to the side!

We LOVE our Super Spinner swing, and this is our exact trampoline. Our kids got this for Christmas 2 years ago and we still love it!

These are the ones we want to own {and just might after Christmas!}…

We tried out these fun games while in Marbles the Brain Store this past summer, we all loved them!

The blue swing is to replace the wooden one we had that rotted. For $14.95 I think this will be a good replacement!

This next one  – The Swurfer – is way cool and I really want one! The creator is one of my long-time friends and my roommate from college! swurfer 3

Facebook doesn’t always do a swell job of showing you what you want to see in your news feed, if you want our posts to show up for you, be sure to hover over the “like” button and make sure there is a checkmark beside “see first” and then we will show up for you when we post! I am watching deals on certain toys and sharing the prices, and checking price history for you!

Subscription Boxes ~ Gift Ideas

We have our next new Gift Guide for 2016, featuring Subscription Boxes for Kids Gift Ideas! Below I will share with you which ones we have personally used and one we have not tried but have heard good things about!

Subscription Boxes Gift Ideas

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used}

 

First let me tell you about my 3 favorite subscription boxes, all we have personally used!

First up is Little Passports which we have used for many years and bought personally. we collected the 12 month subscription and enjoyed every month. We used these a lot when we were doing our continent studies which sadly I have gotten away from. We still have some LP boxes saved up which I plan to use with Ladybug this year and next!

Current Deal:

Little Passports Sale 2016

 


Next up is Ivy Kids, which we got to experience thanks to them becoming a blog sponsor. We have used several of their kits and my daughter loves them! I highly recommend this kit for those of you looking to do unit studies with your younger children but just don’t have the time to pull together all of the resources. These boxes are a perfect match for you!

Current Deal:

20% off of your first Ivy Kit {new Subscribers only} Use Code: IVY20


Our most recent addition has been KidStir which has been a huge hit with her! We got a box to review as an affiliate and plan to buy several more {shhh, they are Christmas gifts}. I realized soon after getting this box that this is the perfect activity to do with a grandparent if possible! Ladybug is a pretty picky eater and some of the recipes are a bit ‘strange’ to her but she tries them since she made them!

Kidstir

You get a neat cookbook binder with your first box, and each box also comes with 2 neat tools. Everything included is very high quality!

Personal favorite: ColorKu!  This is SUCH a neat game and honestly just beautiful to look at. It’s basically Sudoku in a hands on form, using colors!
