Echo Max Rumber - RC Car Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



Do you have a child that loves RC toys?  My 11 year old loves them.  We have have a hard time finding great quality RC toys that are reasonably price until we were introduced to the Echo Max Rumbler.  This is a high quality RC toy that is very reasonably priced.  We were impressed with how fun this toy really is to play with.  It isn't just your typical RC car.  The Echo Max Rumbler has a unique design.  It really is something that I have never seen before.  This is more of a stunt vehicle.  It can do all of the following. . . . 

Stand

Flip

Hyper Spin

360 Spin

360 Loop

Somersault 

Vertical Spin 

and Side Flip



The Echo Max Rumbler does all 8 of these neat stunts.  The neat thing about these stunts was that my 11 year old was easily able to control the vehicle all on his own to make the vehicle do the stunts.  He didn't get frustrated because it was too complicated for him.  I was very impressed.  The Echo Max Rumbler can be used indoors, and also outdoors.  I honestly found that this is a great way to have some fun indoors when it is super hot outside too.



My 11 year old's review
This RC car is so much fun.  I love making the vehicle do all these crazy stunts.  This is the best RC car I have ever had!

Punderdome - Game Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I love playing fun games.  Have you heard of Punderdome?  This is a card game that is based on the live game show.  This really is a fun, and silly game to play.  Do you love puns?  This is a game for pun lovers!  You draw two cards and make up bad puns with the two prompts.  The game is challenging, but entertaining.  It really can get pretty silly though.  I am slowly getting the hang of it.  The game includes over 200 cards for hours of pun fun!  So how does one win this game?  The most terrible punster wins the game.  This game is geared for 3 or more players, and it is suggested that they are 12 years of age and up.  

This would make a great gift for any adult that loves playing games.  Do you know someone that would love this game?  Make sure you pick them  up their own Punderdome game.

I have always been a big fan of anything Little Mermaid.  My daughter and I were very excited when we received a copy of the new book, Poor Unfortunate Soul.  This book is the third and final novel in the Villains trilogy.  The first two books were Fairest of All and Beast Within.  These books are great if your child loves to read about the villains from Disney stories and movies.

We fell in love with the front cover of Poor Unfortunate Soul.  It has a fun picture of Ursula right on the front.  My 4th grader really enjoyed reading this book to me.  This book follows Ursula, and explains more in depth as to why she is so evil.
