We’ve been out of school for a week. ONE WEEK. Already my kids have had moments when they pull the ‘I’m Bored’ card. Luckily there were so many great ideas in my original 75+ Summer Activities post for me to look to – but why stop there? Y’all loved that list so much, I decided to share 75+ MORE Summer Activities! Plenty of fun kid activities, crafts, family games and even delish summer snacks you can all enjoy.
I received some #BlazingTeam toys to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
I didn’t really do yo-yo as a kid – it was too difficult, and nobody else seemed that into it. Hubby, on the other hand, learned plenty of tricks like walk-the-dog and cradle – so he was thrilled to try out some new Hasbro toys from the BLAZING TEAM animated series with the kids. He took some time to help them start their BLAZING TEAM Yo-Yo Skill Training, and they can’t wait to work on their tricks to become ‘Masters of Yo Kwon Do’ like the BLAZING TEAM!

These new Hasbro toys have FIVE levels – from Apprentice to Master. We got to test out some level ones and twos, which were perfect for the kids just starting out. Soon they’ll be moving up and needing more of a challenge, though! The level one was a perfect start – doesn’t just roll out easily, you have to flick it well, and it slides right back up. Thor had a blast with this!
The level ones even have a cool little figure on the end of the string – my first thought was ‘oh good, they won’t lose the end of the string now!’ I’m not quite sure if that was their purpose, or if they just look cooler, but I appreciate them either way.
The red one has changeable plates/cards for the yo-yo, which then change the SOUND it makes. Any toy that makes neat sounds while you use it ups the fun level, right?! It takes 2 AAA batteries.
My girl had a better time with the level two, and is slowly but surely mastering her skills. It’s funny how determined she gets!
Here’s the level 2 designs we got – and as you can see, they don’t have the changeable plates, figures on the string or make sound. Once you get up there in the levels, guess you don’t need them as much, right? My girl didn’t care, as she was into learning more tricks. But the younger kids, they were only interested in the ‘more active’ one 🙂
You can find a bunch of the new BLAZING TEAM toys and accessories from Hasbro at your local retailers, or find them on Amazon. We can’t wait to try out the higher levels – we’ll see if even I can do a trick or two as we master more yo-yo skills! You can also get inspiration, see trick videos and much more at Join BLAZING TEAM!

Since we have boys AND a girl in our household, it’s amazing at the variety of toys filling up our game room. From Transformers to My Little Pony and Equestrian Girls, to trucks and balls and dolls. It’s awesome! It’s really great to see all of them playing with it together, too. Since I didn’t want a bunch of candy for their Easter baskets, we decided on some exciting toys that we could all share. And now YOU can Celebrate with Hasbro in 2016 for their family fun celebrations!

First, let me share my favorite toys that we gave our kids for Easter! We wanted a variety – family board game, activities, as well as fun figures they enjoy. Hasbro didn’t disappoint!
They all loved the Game of Life Yo-Kai Watch Edition. Board games are really fun, at least for our family, and gives us some great time together.
They all really liked practicing their trick shots with the Nerf Dude PerfectShot Hoops Set. It was super easy to hang on the door in the game room – but it also comes with a moldable-type tubing so we could secure it to banisters, bed posts, whatever really! Gotta love flexibility.
Since my boys (and even my girl) are HUGE Transformer fans, they’ve been playing with both the Mr. Potato Head Transformers Mixable Mashable Heroes figure – Bumblebee was what we got – as well as the Transformers 3-Step Changers. Even my 4 year-old can switch it to vehicle mode easily!
My boys aren’t quite as into My Little Pony as they use to be, but my girl sure is – especially the newer Equestrian Girls version. She had a blast with her Rarity Mini Story Pack, from playing ‘makeup and hair’ to Rarity’s fussy little kitty.
Ready to create your own fun family memories and give your kids some fun toys to help inspire their creativity and bring non-stop play? Don’t forget to help celebrate this great dates coming up….
