PostHeaderIcon Throw away your kids old scooter now! #Giveaway

It’s always hard to find gifts for the tweens and teens because they either want something crazy or their taste is changing each week.  The options are often high-priced electronics and video games that stick kids to the couch. This year, there’s a fresh, new alternative that will get the kids up, active and out the door.  The Rockboard Scooter is the coolest new hybrid on two wheels!

I am now the Mom of a Tween (OMG!) and I sometimes don’t know what is “cool” to get for him. He has gone through a few scooters in the past few years. (which are all still kicking, literally.) They are all pretty much the same as far as how they work, what you need to do to get moving and such. Right?…….WRONG! I was recently contacted by a company to review a product called the Rockboard. I thought I would go ahead and do it since the boys love their scooters.

PostHeaderIcon Review: Cars Toon – Mater’s Tall Tales for Wii

Each year as the holiday season approaches, I do my best to get the boys at least SOME of the things they actually want in the ‘ridiculous price” category.  Thankfully this year the lists are much cheaper for their wants! My 8 year old has a lot of Wii games on his list. While not the cheapest things around, they are much cheaper than his request for say a trip to California to visit our good friend.  This winter, Disney/Pixar’s Cars Toon: Maters Tall Tales, a new Wii game from Disney will give your family a fun new reason to get excited, off the couch, and spend an afternoon together.

Inspired by Disney/Pixar’s wildly popular animated shorts of the same name, Cars Toon: Maters Tall Tales brings Mater together with Lightning McQueen and the Cars gang in a collection of pick-up-and-play games. With 30 levels, you’ll have enough variety to keep everyone in your family entertained, whether you want to try death-defying stunts in “Mater the Greater,” run with the bulls in “El Materdor,” or help a friend with “Rescue Squad Mater.” Plus both cooperative and competitive games give you the option to team up or take on your kids in a fun head-to-head family challenge.

This is one of the cutest “whole family” games I have come across lately. Even my 3 year old can play it with us which makes him very happy.  The games are fun and the characters are even funnier. If you are looking for a Wii game to pick up this holiday, take a look at the video below. I think you might agree that this one will be on your pick list!
