Tomodachi Life Nintendo DS is a life simulation handheld video game where Mii characters live on an island and interact with each other. They get to live everyday lives and experience things like regular life, like making friends, falling in love, having kids, eating and having fun.

How to Play:

With Tomodachi Life, you will create Mii characters for your game. YOU CAN BE ANYONE!! From your alter ego to people you know or celebrities. It’s pretty neat and you enter their different personalities what they like to do, what they like to eat. You can even create different voices for each character. Then, you add your Mii charcters to your island. To quickly add more characters onto our island, you can choose to import Miis by scanning QR Codes created by other players. You can also share your own Miis with others.

Once you’ve added everyone on your island, you can start living your virtual life. Maybe you will want to get married and have kids. Or write a song and perform it on stage for all the other Mii characters. There is just so much to do in Tomodachi Life.

We all enjoyed playing this game! My kids had a ton of fun with the voice options as well as all the people they could play as. You can purchase Tomodachi Life at Best Buy

Best Buy: Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Review

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

My husband is really into gadges and new technologies, he’s always in the know about all the latest techie goodness. Our home entertainment system is no exeption! He’s always on the lookout for products that will make the whole home theater experience better. Needless to say there’s many things going on on our entertainment center; LCD TV, DirecTV DVR, DVD Player, XBox, Playstation, Wii and a laptop are always hooked up.

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

You are probably picturing the mess and the insane amount of controllers and remotes. However, I still need a different remote to handle controlling each of those things. And don’t get me started with the pain it can be to browse Netflix or Youtube!

So when I was given the opportunity to review Logitech’s Harmony Keyboard it was a no brainer! We were sooooooooo excited and couldn’t wait to give it a go!

The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard lets you:

  • Control devices behind cabinet doors and walls
  • Control up to eight devices
  • Works with Apple TV, Roku and TiVo
  • Use your smartphone, with the Harmony smartphone app, to supplement keyboard controls with touch-screen gesture
Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

The Harmony Smart Keyboard delivers the full Harmony control experience for TV-connected Internet and home entertainment devices. It comes with everything that you need to get up and running. In addition to the keyboard, the kit includes the Harmony hub which is the brain of the system. It also includes 2 USB receivers which can be used in your non-Bluetooth enabled devices like your computer or television. It also includes an IR blaster, USB extender, and USB cable.

All you do is set up the hub so you can use the harmony keyboard and your smartphone to control all of the devices hooked up to your system. Setup was really easy (I supervised my IT guy ;) ). To pair your devices all you do is enter in the manufacturer name and model name/number, that easy! All devices just clicks away, no more having to deal with those silly universal remotes that need to be redone every time the batteries die.

Harmony Hub controls devices behind cabinets or walls

  • IR, RF, USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • Simple smartphone setup
  • Harmony App turns iOS & Android smartphones into personal universal remote

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

My son is in love with the ability to easily type what he is looking for without issues. And if typing isn’t as exciting to you as it is to us the keyboard also has 3 keys where you can program activities. I set up the activities we use the most like Watch TV, Games and music. But the keyboard includes integrated DVR and set-top box controls, playback and volume buttons, and a touchpad for cursor control on a PC or Mac, and much more.

Right now through June 21 you can get the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard exclusively at Best Buy. The cost is $149.99. But I promised it will change your life!

Posh Paper Parties Co Etsy Store Review

Continuing with reviews for the wonderful items we got for the Monster Bash……………..Next stop is PoshPaperPartiesCo, an amazing Etsy shop with an even more amazing mother/daughter duo behind it.

We got a highchair banner, did you know about this? and a party hat from them. The store owner, Flavia Andrews was wonderful! She asked me about the colors and theme of the party and even sent me drafts of the template she would use to make my items.

Everything was perfectly coordinated and customized to my son’s name and party. Look at how gorgeous this banner is!  The colors where vibrant and went perfectly with the party.

Each scalloped circle measures 5″, our banner had 6 of them. It fit perfectly around the highchair.
My son’s name Gael,the words “Is One!” and images were printed in high resolution, mounted on high quality cardstock and strung with fabric ribbon. All in the coordinated colors. 

Now take a look at this gorgeous party hat! Isn’t precious?

Made out cardstock with fabric ribbon trim and ties. Die cut number one and scalloped monster embellishment and soft pom-poms at the top.
Hat measures 7″ tall and 4.25″ wide. It “sits” on top of baby’s head. Ribbon ties measure 13″ long each.

There was no monster themed party hats at PoshPaperPartiesCo but Flavia was so wonderful and accommodating that she made this one specially for my son. That not only shows how talented she is but also how important she takes all her customers.

Make sure to check out their shop HERE and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

 

 

 

 

You’re Invited Decor Etsy Store Review

You guys already saw my post about the awesome bundtinis we served for my little monster’s party and now I’m going to tell you all about the gorgeous little monster toppers we got from the YoureInvitedDecor Etsy Store, and also the awesome banner they made for us. I can’t tell you enough how lucky I am to be able to work with so many wonderful ladies and help them spread the word about their lovely Etsy Shops.

We received 40 adorable cupcake toppers in 3 patterns and gorgeous bright colors, this monsters were adorable! Made with super strong carstock and glued to sticks with hot glue. They went on top of our little bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Don’t they look adorable? They kids went crazy for them and were choosing the little cakes not by the flavors but by the monster on top.

We also received this gorgeous banner, which was personalized with my son’s name and three different kinds of monsters all made with very nice thick scalloped cardstock in the party colors with adorable googly eyes, all hanging together with shimmery ribbon. I now have the name banner hanging on my son’s room and it looks adorable :)

They love custom orders and enjoy creating for their customers. Make sure to check out their shop HERE and follow them on Facebook.

Austin Moonwalks Review

A party is not a party without some entertainment! And for our little monster party we had some awesome stuff from Austin Moonwalks. Guests got to bounce around on really cool castle moonwalk and they enjoyed some great cotton candy.

Austin Moonwalks offers free delivery and setup to a limited delivery area, there’s a small delivery fee for some outlying zip codes. A very nice guy came to our party, explained how to care for the items, how use make the cotton candy and went over all the guidelines with me. He also set everything up so we didn’t have to worry about anything!

The kids literally jumped throughout the entire party, they just couldn’t get enough of it! We chose the King Castle moonwalk you can see it HERE. This one rents for $139 and it was super clean no weird smells like some moonwalk can have.

20131204-125531.jpg

We had a huge line when we started making the cotton candy. It was really easy to make and everyone enjoyed it greatly! There’s just something special about cotton candy. I think both my husband and I were more excited then the kids!  :lol: This one rents for $75 and comes with two huge containers of sugar, we had plenty to go around and still had some left over. You can check it out HERE.

Once the party ended he came back to pick up all the items. We didn’t even have to clean the cotton candy machine which was soooooo much fun but I was very glad I didn’t have to clean it!

Thank you so much for making my little monster’s birthday party extra special and keeping our guests very entertained. Make sure to follow Austin Moonwalks on Facebook and check out all the deals they have.

Cadabra’s Crafts Review

I had the amazing opportunity to work with the with a group of awesome Etsy shops for my sons first birthday monster party. One of shops is Cadabra’s Crafts. The shops owner Abra was not only extremely friendly and helpful as we planned what I needed dot the party but kept communicating with me in every step of the way. We got the table centers and the goodie bag clippers from her shop and they wee gorgeous!!!!20140102-001129.jpg

We got 10 center pieces and Abra was kind enough to work with us and make the monsters in the party’s color scheme. Each centerpiece had 5 monsters in picks and comes with a tin bucket with handles and has a burlap square on the front with the word MONSTERS attached. A foam disk is inserted in the bottom for the pieces to stick into. They were super easy to ensemble, they came with instructions and everything I needed to make them look amazing! Our guests were thrilled to take this home with them :)

20140102-001142.jpgAre you looking at all those vibrant colors? Abra was so nice and really nailed the colors and theme of the party. The cardstock is of great quality and you can tell they were made with tons of care and love. I couldn’t have asked for better decorations! Everyone at the party was fascinated with the detailed work and how gorgeous the table centers were. As you can see on the pictures they are made with carefully cut layers of carstock and attached to the stick with hot glue so there’s no coming off.

Review: 2LittleHootsBoutique Etsy Shop Custom Tshirt

One of our Birthday Bash sponsors was 2LittleHootsBoutique a gorgeous Etsy shop that offers custom embroidered t shirts. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and I was thrilled to review one.

20131202-203902.jpg

Gael got the little monster t shirt, which is an adorable turquoise monster with my son’s name and age. He looked sooooooooooo handsome in it! The fabric was soft and unlike most of the custom shirts I had seen it wasn’t rough on the inside.

My son and I loved it so much he’s been wearing it a lot lately and every single time he gets lots of compliments and I get ask where I got it. The quality is exceptional and you can tell it was made with lots of love and care.

20131202-203416.jpg

2LittleHootsBoutique was kind enough to offer us a t shirt to giveaway to our readers. So make sure to stay tuned for the details!  This would be an amazing addition to your child’s birhtday celebration.
