Steam Park Game Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As owners of a fantastic steam park, you're to build gigantic, coal-powered rides to attract as many visitors as you can - but building attractions won't be enough. You'll also need to manage your employees, invest in advertising in order to attract and please the different kinds of guests visiting your park, and, above all, keep the dirt that your park produces under strict control! Steam Park is an easy-to-learn game with two difficulty levels: one for the less experienced gamers and a more strategic one for those who want a more exciting challenge. In this management game, you'll have to build your own amusement park and make it the largest and most profitable in the region. By constructing the three-dimensional, wonderful rides designed by Marie Cardouat, you will see your park grow right before your eyes. Choose your strategy! Build Stands to attract more Visitors, or Toilets to keep the Dirt under control. Whatever decision you take, take it quickly: The less time you spend planning, the more time you'll have to maintain your park. Thanks to a clever, original action-choosing mechanism, winning in Steam Park is as much a matter of being the best as of being the fastest!

This game has 2 different versions. The first version is for younger less experienced players and then there is a version that is for the more experienced gamer.

We found the game to be a little hard at first to figure out. There is a lot to know before you can play the game. Still very fun once you have it all figured out. This game runs about $35 on Amazon


Each of the cardboard pieces are very sturdy. The games pieces are all very well made. Nothing is going to fall apart very easy. You can play this game over and over again. This is great for those intense teen gamers!

Princess Sophia and the Frog 5 Book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

This is such a cute fairy tale. If you are looking for a Valentine's gift for your daughter or for a little girl this would be a great one. Almost all little girls want to be a princess. Princess Sophia is great at using her imagination.

The colors in this book are brilliant!

My one daughter loves the color pink and this book just filled her pink dreams. Princess Sophia is taken on a "trip" by her friend the frog. They travel to other planets to get to the moon. Each planet has a different feeling. Once they get to their destination they fall right back down to the castle where they belong. After her return to the castle she realizes that all she needs to be happy is to be surrounded by good friends.

This is such a perfectly adorable little book. I got to review it by ebook but am seriously contemplating going and buying one for my daughter.

Please go check out this children's book about happiness and friendship for your little princess. It is sure to make a hit!

Nuby Splish Splash Bath Time Stacking Cups

My little ones love these stacking cups. These are not just the normal everyday stacking cups. Nuby's Splish Splash Bath Time Stacking Cups are unique in that they have different shapes at the bottom of the cups and each cups is like a mini colander.

Each cup is a different color for fun and exciting bath time play. There are 5 cups. Each one has 2 different colors. The outer rim of the top is one color and the cup itself is another. Our little ones older siblings had stacking cups for the bathtub and they weren't half as neat. Plus the older kids used to drink their bath water because there were no draining holes in the bottom. YUCK!

Each one of Nuby's Bath toys have such nice colors and designs that you don't see in other bath toys. BPA for safe play.

It is so much easier to get my 6 year old to take a bath now that he gets to play with all these neat toys. The squid Squirter and the Splish Splash cups are definitely not just for the youngest ones. Even our 9 year old loves the cups.

These would make a great birthday gift. For ages 9 months and up.

These toys also help teach coordination and development. Fill the cup and watch it run out or pour it out. Great for cause and effect also.
