Play Outside With OgoSport

Batapult by OgoSport

This summer grab a few OgoSport Toys and go play outside. The kids need to get exercise and so do I. I must admit, I miss having all that energy. OgoSport has some great outdoor toys such as Batapult, Batapult Jr., Bolli, and Jabbit. Fun for all ages.

Batapult has a hinged handle to help kids send the ball flying. This bat is good for children over the age of 6.

Batapult Jr. by OgoSport

Don't worry, they make a Batapult Jr. for the younger ones. We got the Batapult Jr. to review and it is perfect for my daughter. She is 4 years old now and it helps her learn to swing. There is a spot for a ball to sit in the bat. The ball is soft. The kids like to play with this in the open field. It's hard to get my son into sports, so making it fun is really important.

Bolli by OgoSport

Bolli is a flexible discovery ball. The material is soft and pliable which can be stretched or squished. It is BPA Free. 

There are so many fun toys to choose from made by OgoSport. 

Do your kids like playing sports?

Original Gourmet Lollipops and Candy Review

Original Gourmet Lollipops and Squrtz

Original Gourmet Lollipop are delicious lollipops that come in a variety of flavors. They are peanut free and gluten free which is great for those with allergies. My daughter really liked the Cotton Candy flavored lollipop. 

You can buy the lollipops online here or you can find them in stores. We usually see them in our local Walmart. 

They have lollipop gift boxes and even mini lollipop bags. These would make good treats for gift bags or to put in a candy bar at a party.

Try the Sweetly Naturals which are GMO Free and have no high fructose corn syrup. 

Squrtz Candy from Original Gourmet Lollipop

There is a new candy out called Squrtz. They come in a variety of flavors with a creamy middle. We all enjoyed them. My son's favorite was strawberry. My favorites were strawberry and raspberry. They are available at Dollar Tree. 

These are good for the candy bowl on your coffee table. My husband also brings candy into his office at work.

Happy Salmon Card Game

Happy Salmon by North Star Games

Happy Salmon is a new card game from North Star Games. It is a simple and fast paced card game that can be played by the whole family. 

Happy Salmon Card Game

Each player picks a color and gets those stack of cards. You then turn over your card and yell out the action card. If there is a match you do that action with the other player. Then discard that action card.
The first player to match their cards wins.

This is cute and funny. My daughter has also been using it as a matching game in her own way.

The actions you can match are:

-Pound It
-Happy Salmon
-High Five

This game comes in a salmon traveling case. You can bring it with you to play dates or parties. Kids will certainly get a kick out of it.

I was thinking what if the adults used it for a drinking game. That might be funny to watch too!

SparkleUps Cupcakes By The Orb Factory

SparkleUps Cupcakes From The Orb Factory

Does your child love sparkle and crafts? The Orb Factory sent us this fun kit called SparkleUps Cupcakes. It comes with stickers and sparkles. You decorate the stickers and then put the sticker wherever you want. 

The Orb Factory has many fun craft projects you can do with your children. These would be great as gifts too. 

My kiddos 

My daughter will be 4 this month and my son is 7. He had an easier time with the tiny sparkles. My daughter wanted my help. I thought it was pretty cute to play with. 

Cupcake Sticker 

You can see that each sticker has numbers and colors. You can match the colors to create the SparkleUps. My kids decided to make some different colors.

Sparkle Stickers

The sparkles have adhesive on the back of them. You pick off the sparkle and put it on the color.


There is one sticker end product. My daughter decided to put hers on a bucket. 

This project would be great for kids to decorate their books at school, if they are allowed. Or a journal at home.

Swordigo By Touch Foo

Swordigo is a side scrolling game you can play on your phone. I have a Samsung S7, so I go to Google Play to download games.

I recently found this game and thought it was cute. Run, Jump, and fight. It reminds me of games I would play as a kid.

I also have a YouTube channel. Yes, I am a total noob. It's a learning experience.

Do you have fun games or apps you play on your phone? Let me know in the comments.

Hallmark Life Is Good Father's Day Giveaway

Life Is Good Hallmark Mug

Father's Day is coming up this weekend. You may be thinking of what to get that special dad in your life. You could be shopping for your husband or your own father. Hallmark has a great line of gifts that include Life Is Good.

This mug is perfect for any coffee or tea drinker. I'll be giving this to the hubby to take with him to work. Life has its obstacles but at the end of the day we are pretty lucky. I'm grateful for the work he does to support me and the kids. 

Looking back on my childhood, I was also very lucky to have a good Dad. He was always fun and I had a good father daughter bond with him. Yes, I was daddy's little girl. We had cool Halloween parties. I enjoyed bonding with him in the yard, building a deck, and sorting out baseball cards. We watched Rocky movies and action flicks. When I was sick from school he would bring me Bop magazines and TMNT comics. He never criticized me and always tried to understand me. The years have passed and we don't live near each other anymore. There was a time where we didn't see each other for a while. We now see each other again and he has met his grand daughter. It is sometimes hard to realize our parents are not perfect and have problems too. I won't forget the fun childhood I had. 

Ken Sheldon Artwork Hallmark Frame

This is Raised on Love 6 x 8 Framed Art by Ken Sheldon. Add a sentimental touch to any decor with this framed art print of a father teaching his child to walk. This is so sweet. The hubby will have to put this in his office at work.

Love Shows the Way decorative tile is a ceramic tile with this father and son image. I love the art work. The tile comes with a base to stand it up.
