Here are some tips I can share from my experience at having been to there sales.

  1. The best tip I can give you is to COME EARLY! Be there as soon as the doors to the mall open. After just 30-45 minutes the place fills up and by lunch it’s jam packed.
  2. GET YOUR HANDS ON A PUSH CART. As you go through the sale and see something that you really like (because you will definitely see many things you’ll like) put it in your cart. It’ll be too difficult to go back and retrieve it. Before you head to the counter just go through your items and keep the ones you really want.
  3. MAKE A LIST. It’s overwhelming to be confronted with all these great deals. You’ll feel like you need to get everything. Bring a list of your inaanaks, nephews, nieces, etc so you can choose what toys to give. Being its a sale you’ll be able to save and even get Buy 1 Take 1 Deals.
  4. INSPECT EVERY ITEM. At this sale I was excited to see the underwear that I had gotten Jael at the Baby Company sale. It was a set of DC character briefs which were 7 pieces for Php300, an obvious steal. However, I didn’t bother checking the size of each brief and when I got home that’s when I saw I had gotten small sizes. So, best check those sizes!
  5. BRING ALCOHOL/SANITIZER. You’ll be picking up a lot of things especially when scrutinizing the prices and state of the toys so expect to get your hands dirty.
  6. Lastly, BRING YOUR SMAC card becasue for sure you’ll be purchasing in the thousands and those are a waste of points if you don’t bring your card.

Hobbes and Landes BGC has launched a Lego corner for kids and adults alike. It’s an ideal place for kids to play while their parents buy from the toy, art or pet section. Yes, they have all that at Hobbes and Landes BGC!

I looked for my dream Lego set, the Harry Potter series. I learned though that those sets were no longer available and that there were many people also looking for the same Lego sets.

I would love to have the Harry Potter Lego sets but after perusing the store I also saw so many more sets to choose from.

I loved seeing this life sized Ninjago, one of Jael’s favorite characters. It’s our dream to go to Legoland some day.

Hobbes & Landes was created from a love of board games. It was a small specialty store in July 2002 started by the Pesengco and Sun Families and now has 12 specialty lifestyle stores, 7 of which are company owned and 4 under a trademark and concept license.

The BGC branch being the flagship store has many sections and carries all original and licensed toys. If you’re looking for quality toys that are both unique and authentic Hobbes and Landes is the best place to look.

Mega Bloks Spongebob Squarepants Invisible Boatmobile Rescue

Posted on

It was such a treat attending the Frabelle and Mommy Bloggers Philippines Bento Workshop. The kids who attended were thrilled to receive toys from Richwell and Jael was given a Mega Bloks Spongebob Squarepants Build It Set.

Unboxing the Mega Bloks Spongebob Squarepants Invisible Boatmobile Rescue

As soon as we got home he asked if we could put it together. This is where I saw how different it is for kids and parents. After saying yes, I tried to strategize how best to piece them all together. Jael on the other hand wanted to rip everything open.

It’s times like these that I have to remember that it’s not about getting it right but letting him learn and enjoy. It can be a toughie sometimes!

The toy is just right for Jael’s age. The parts are small though and it takes some force to put the pieces together so it’s better to have a parent or older sibling helping out.

There are 8 packs in the box and believe it or not it’s not organized by part or piece. Everything is mixed up so we ended up opening up all the packs anyway!

It’s always important to read the instructions. That’s what I teach the kids because self learning even by just assembling a toy can also be a small lesson in independence.

The instructions for this are pretty straightforward. They show you exactly where each piece belongs. The parts are small however so it’s best to have a box or container ready for after it’s put together.

Here we are! Spongebob, Patrick and Plankton in their boat mobiles. These Mega Blok toys are excellent becasue the end result has some pretty cool features.

The transparent boatmobile Patrick is driving has side wings that flap. The one Plankton is driving has an excavator that goes up and down. The piece Jael liked the best is the fishnet type apparatus that can fling jellyfish.
