We were really looking forward to this as it seemed the perfect size. We didn't want something that was gigantic and a ton of pieces. My head elf (hubby) - was going to start to put this together about 5 days before Christmas - anticipating lots of little pieces... imagine his excitement when we opened the box and found it all Pre-assembled (made for a very happy elf). My daughter has a TON of the Polly Pocket Disney Princesses and they FIT perfectly! She loves the working stable door for the horses and the working draw bridge. This also folds up nicely. It has lots of little rooms for the princesses to go and towers in which Rapunzel and Eugene have already had many adventures. Great product!!!

This kit was so cool. My 8 year old son loved making his own super heros. There was enough to make three and the price was amazing. He did have a hard time assembling the pieces but with my help he was able to create action figures he can keep forever.

Leaked the first day. The water portion on the bottom is risky. One leak and you have a major mess. Luckily it leaked in the air section. Returning!

Many toys keep getting more complex, but children still love simple toys that give their imaginations an outlet. Play sets provide children with a variety of simple toys and objects that let their minds come alive. Play sets can encourage individual play as well as social play and sharing. Whether your kids are dressing up in costumes or building a city of blocks with a friend, children's play sets are one of the best ways for children develop their social skills and have a lot of fun. Here are some of the best play sets to provide for your children.
Pretend play helps kids express their feelings, lets them develop language skills as they create make-believe scenarios, and provides an opportunity for social development as they play cooperatively. It's important to let children direct themselves to get the most out of pretend play, but their creativity gets a jumpstart when they have the best pretend play toys. Kids will start engaging in pretend play at 2 or 3 years old, and most of these toys would be good Christmas gifts for kids ages 2 to 8.
Almost all children love to play on swing sets. Fortunately, it is fairly easy to install a swing set in your back yard. And having a playset in your own back yard not only lets your kids have fun, but it also keeps them close to home so you can know they are safe.
Backgammon is a two-person game played not only in your recreation room, but also as a competitive activity in social and commercial settings. As a board game, backgammon dates back to England in 1045 when it was called "Tables." Backgammon has been played all over the world, and in 1743 the first set of backgammon rules was drafted. Since then, backgammon has continued to increase in popularity.
Different age groups, as well as people with physical limitations, can enjoy disc golf, which is commonly known as Frisbee golf.

Before starting game play, you must determine the number of holes as well as the course. The object of game play is to throw the Frisbee into a basket or hit a landmark.

This and similar fabrics are lightweight and help wick moisture away from the body. Tennis might not require as much constant running as basketball or soccer, but by the time you get near the end of that second set, you'll be feeling the heat and grateful for lightweight, cool sports apparel. When it comes to athletic clothing for tennis, you have plenty of options. When you need sportswear or workout clothes to play tennis, here are the essentials.
Learning to play volleyball correctly takes a good level of practice. Most people aren't naturally gifted with perfect instincts or coordination to immediately thrive at volleyball on their first try. Picking up a volleyball set and getting to work is probably the best way to build your talents. On the other hand, in addition to gaining learned instincts and coordination, learning some techniques can dramatically improve your game, especially when it comes to setting a volley ball. A player sets a volley ball when he uses his two extended hands to place the ball over the net for another player to spike. A good volleyball set is one of the most difficult and valued abilities in sports today. Still, with some practice, it isn't beyond your reach. Here are a few ideas to help improve your volleyball set.

Many educational toys and games can help children develop their listening skills. Children often have difficulty developing good listening skills, and by playing educational games with your children, you can bond with them and guide their learning. Some learning and educational toys encourage independent learning while still focusing on listening comprehension. By using a variety of educational games and toys available focused on listening skills, children can learn while having fun. Improve Listening Skills: Board games: Board games require kids to listen to a set of rules. To play, they must retain the rules they just heard. Instead of letting the kid read the rules, read the rules to them. Have them repeat the rules back. The practice of repeating and using the rules they've learned helps reinforce their ability to listen and remember. Video games: Age-appropriate educational video games work similarly to videos, music, and other auditory games. These games can be played alone or with others. Video games can be played on most game consoles, on computers, and through many websites. To complete game tasks, kids must listen to and remember instructions. Auditory games: Games such as "Simon Says" or "Bingo" require kids to listen in order to play. If they don't listen, they can't perform tasks correctly. Children like to win games, and games that focus on another player stating steps or have an audio component to state tasks and steps will encourage kids to improve their listening skills. Play these games with your child to help make the games more fun. Books: You can turn any children's book into a listening game. Read a book to a child and ask questions afterward. For every correct answer, provide some type of reward. If reading to a group, turn the questions into a group game. Many books focus solely on improving listening skills, such as riddle books which require kids to listen to and remember all details before they can solve the riddle. Other books include guessing games such as "20 Questions." To guess the answer, kids must remember the answers to the 20 questions. Videos and music: Many kids' movies, shows, and songs are actually full of games. These games require children to listen carefully to perform the desired task. Typically, these tasks include saying a certain phrase or doing a certain dance or exercise move. These tasks build upon each other to develop kids' ability to listen and remember what they've heard.

Whether you are shopping for a baby boy gift to take to a baby shower or a gift that will be perfect for his first birthday, we can help you select the best baby gift with our tips. Activity. Play mats such as gym mats and tummy time mats are great gifts for baby boys. Play mats help babies develop motor skills, strengthen their muscles and they can also entertain little one's while parents take a break. Active baby boys love kicking and playing with gym mat toys and tummy time mats will entertain any baby while he is developing strong muscle coordination. In addition to play mats, music CDs, educational DVDs and baby books are great activity-based gift options. Age-appropriate toys such as trains, cars, stuffed toys and balls never go out of fashion and give babies opportunities to develop their motor skills. A play yard also makes a great baby boy gift. Play yards offer a safe place for babies to explore their environment. Nursery. You can help dress a baby boy's nursery with decor gifts. Crib bedding, hampers, crib toys, musical mobiles, window treatments, stuffed toys, rugs and other accessories will add to a baby boy's nursery. Check with parents to find out their planned nursery theme before buying or choose neutral decor items. Large nursery items such as baby swings, rockers, bouncy seats and walkers are great gifts and will be very useful for the parents. Meal time. Babies need so many accessories to get them through the day. Feeding accessories make very useful baby boy gifts. Cheerful dish sets and baby bibs with witty lines are gifts that make meal times memorable for a baby boy and his parents. If you have a generous budget, consider larger items such as high chairs, baby booster seats and travel seats. Clothes and accessories. A baby can never have too many outfits. Consider the time of year and local climate and choose clothes and accessories that fit the seasons. Undershirts, pajamas, sleepers, shorts, T-shirts, pants and pairs of jeans are safe bets for baby boys. Hats, jackets, socks, shoes and mittens make useful gifts as well. If you are shopping for a newborn, consider purchasing clothing that is perfect for older babies. As long as you keep the seasons in mind, you can purchase a clothing gift that will be useful once the baby grows out of his adorable infant outfits.

With the bevy of options and features now available in cell phones, it's easy to find one perfect for you. Before you begin searching for your next cell phone, take the time to think about what you need your phone to do. Below, you'll learn the best cell phone features. Camera: Cell phone cameras can be quite handy when you happen upon a special moment without a regular digital camera on hand. Most camera phones don't take very high-resolution (usually 1.3 megapixel) pictures, but there are some that top out over 3 megapixels. Some cell phone cameras even have small flashes. If you want a camera phone, find out if it comes with the cable and software to connect to your computer, so you don't have to spend extra for a separate program. Video: Usually, camera phones that play video will also record video. Some non-camera cell phones also play video. Look to see if you can transfer movies from your phone to your computer. Web browsing: Many cell phones let you connect to the Internet. Most use Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), which allows the phone to connect to pages specifically designed for cell phones. There are many phones with full browsers, however, that allow you to view regular Web pages. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to transfer data wirelessly between devices. Wireless cell phone headsets use this technology, and it can also be used to transfer pictures, ringtones and other data between two cell phones or between cell phones and computers. Games: There are cell phones out there that have been designed with the gamer in mind, allowing you to download games that would compare to those found on a personal gaming system. Office software: Most cell phones feature some sort of a calendar and alarm. You can set a wake-up alarm or you can make it alert you for your next appointment. Other phones allow you to make notes for each appointment. Some let you create documents that can be transferred to your computer's word processor or spreadsheet. MP3 player: More and more cell phones are also MP3 players. Check to see if you need special headphones for listening (and if they're included), and pay attention to the phone's memory capacity. Memory expansion: Some phones, usually video or MP3 player phones, feature memory card slots, so you can save pictures, music or other files on removable flash memory. Voice dialing: If you absolutely have to use your cell phone while driving, you'll want one with voice dialing. The phone recognizes the contact you speak and places the call, allowing you to keep your eyes where they belong: on the road. Buy Cell Phones Back to Guides Directory Buy Cell Phones
There are some very obvious differences between hardside luggage and softside luggage. But there are also a lot of more subtle differences, and knowing all the differences between the two types of luggage can help you find a luggage set that is right for you and makes your travels easier. Materials: Hardside luggage is usually made of aluminum or polycarbonates. They are chosen because they have a good strength-to-weight ratio. Softside luggage is made of a variety of materials, including vinyl, cotton, polyester, leather and other durable materials. These materials are chosen because they are lightweight, flexible and durable. Features: The features offered on softside and hardside luggage are nearly identical. They both often offer wheels and extendable handles for convenience when carrying the luggage. Inside, they can have an array of pockets for holding toiletries or preventing clothes from getting wrinkled. What can be different is that softside luggage typically has several pockets that are accessible without opening the suitcase. Also, softside luggage almost always uses zippers to hold it close, but hardside luggage will have some type of latch to secure it. Price: Many factors determine the cost of luggage; one of which is the materials it is made of, but features, size, brand and other factors play a part as well. Not all hard materials are the same and not all soft materials are the same, but on average, the initial cost of hardside luggage is going to be higher than the initial cost of comparable softside luggage. One thing to consider though is value. If you are a frequent flyer, the initial cost of hardside luggage might be offset by its longevity. Use: If you are someone who keeps their luggage close to them and will only take a carry-on with you, the lightweight, flexibility of softside luggage might be better for you. The rigid shape of a hardside case doesn't always conform to the shape of an overhead bin; however, if you like to check your bags, hardside luggage is less likely to be damaged when thrown around in the holding area and will keep its contents from getting crushed when another bag gets thrown on top of it. Bottom line: When it comes down to it, both softside luggage and hardside luggage do the same basic thing. But the choice is about you and what you want. Do you want something that is incredibly durable and will protect everything inside of it? Or would you rather have luggage that is more flexible and lightweight?
