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.

Blast Better with BoomCo Summer Explosion

Posted on

Jael’s latest favorite toy is the BoomCo Far Shot Blaster. He loves playing with these types of guns and I find them safe and playful. We attended the BoomCo Summer Explosion event and Jael had the chance to play on a team and blast his blaster.

BoomCo has a variety of dart blaster toys including two collections, BoomCo and Halo. They also have darts, clips and more accessories to create an immersive experience for your child.

Jael’s Farshot Blaster includes 3 Smart Stick darts and a Smart Stick target. He’s been having a lot of practice at home! It also has single-fire accuracy and blasts up to 70 feet and even has storage for two additional darts in the handle. There’s a removable transforming Smart Stick shield where they can get their darts from.

He was also eyeing this Rapid Madness Blaster which seemed to be as tall as he was!

While waiting for the event to start we took a tour around the playing area and it was reminiscent of those battle playgrounds you see in similar challenges. Jael is five years old but I was confident that he would be able to work his way around.

Getting some practice in before the big game.

Honestly, Jael was too young to even know what the rules were or how to tactically win. He just enjoyed the experience of it all.

Check out the video for the BoomCo Summer Explosion! Jael’s the one in red!

Congratulations to the winners!
