Find Out Why The Zoomer Show Pony Is On Every Little Girl’s Wish List This Holiday Season

 

If you’ve got a little girl on your holiday shopping list, chances are you’ve heard of the Zoomer Show Pony, and it’s probably her #1 most desired gift this holiday season.  We’ve seen SO many commercials and YouTube videos of this adorable little pony, you know my daughter has been so anxious to get a Zoomer Show Pony of her own.  Thanks to my friends at SpinMaster, we’ve had a blast playing around with this cute little pony that’s got an adorable attitude to boot.

 

 

One look at this cute little pony and you’ll see why every little girl can’t wait to get their hands on one.  The new Zoomer Show Pony is a fashionable, interactive pony you can feed, groom, and train to perform different tricks.  She moves on her own and has expressive light-up eyes that show you exactly how she feels.  Zoomer Show Pony knows when you’re petting her cheeks and nose, and responds with loving pony sounds.  She’ll nuzzle into your hand, shake and move her head, and even neigh “I love you.”  When you press the heart badge on her chest, she’ll perform tricks, including dancing, singing or doing a figure eight. 

 

 

Zoomer Show Pony gives you the real pony experience.  She makes sweet pony sounds, neighing and whinnying in response to your actions.  You’ll always know exactly what’s on her mind as her LCD eyes light up to communicate her feelings.  Whether she’s hungry, full, or sleepy, her bright eyes will express everything you need to know!  This pony can perform many tricks!  She is quick to learn the show time moves you teach her.  Use the carrot to train her and she’ll play music and dance!  Pet her nose and she may even prance and wiggle!  As her owner, it’s up to you to get her ready for the big show.  When your little pony has been good, reward her with a sweet treat!  Feed her the delicious sugar cube accessory and she’ll make licking sounds, how cute!  But watch out if she has too much sugar…Zoomer Show Pony will get hyper and she’ll do her crazy sugar dance!

 

 

Zoomer Show Pony comes with four interactive accessories, including an apple, carrot and a sugar cube.  Try feeding your pony an interactive apple and she’ll crunch, chomp and munch happily!  Use the hairbrush accessory to brush and style her, so she’s ready for the big show!

Cupcake Surprise Dolls Are The Cutest Stocking Stuffers With A Sweet Surprise

 

Looking for a super cute stocking stuffer for that special little girl on your shopping list this holiday season?  Mini Cupcake Surprise dolls are the cutest little dolls that transform from cupcake to miniature doll!  A super cute toy that doubles as a second hidden toy is always a big hit with my little girl and she just can’t get enough of these Cupcake Surprise dolls.

 

 

Each Cupcake Surprise looks just like a beautifully decorated cupcake until you transform this sweet surprise into a pretty princess.  Each cupcake surprise princess doll comes with her own unique outfit and scent, and the larger dolls come with a hairbrush as well to keep her hair looking its finest.  The Mini Cupcake Surprise dolls are smaller versions of the larger dolls and they’re just as adorable (if not more so) as the larger dolls.  There are 12 different styles of doll available with 6 different scents to collect including: strawberry, vanilla, grape, chocolate, lemon and caramel.  Kids can collect all 12 of the princesses: Brittney, Candie, Esther, Debby, Jenny, Kaelyn, Lorie, Maya, Ailly, Liza, Marilyn, and Sabrina.  Each princess has her own unique style, whether it be bright patterns or bold colors with sparkly accents. 

 

 

These cute little princesses are sure to be a HUGE hit with your little princess.  My daughter absolutely loves how the top of the cupcakes make totally adorable hats that accessorize the outfits perfectly.  Keep the hats with the princess they came with or mix them up and give a funky flair to each doll!  The materials that these little dolls are made from are a really high quality so you don’t have to worry about ripping or tearing after excessive transformation.  The tops of the cupcakes fit nicely onto the cupcake base when the doll’s dress is folded upwards so they stay together nicely even when tossed into a bag and carried to a sleepover 🙂 .

 

Whether your little princess wants the larger dolls or mini’s, they’re the perfect size to fit into any little one’s stocking so you can make sure that Christmas is the most magical one yet.

Artificial Intelligence and Video Games

 

First and foremost, a super huge thanks to my sponsor Andrew Charlton for making this post possible.

 

If you have ever played a video game, no matter what era you played it in, you have interacted with artificial intelligence.  Regardless of whether you prefer race-car games like Gran Turismo, strategy games like God Of War, or shooting games like Call Of Duty, you will always find elements controlled by AI.  Even things that you don’t think would be AI controlled, are!  AIs are often behind the characters you typically don’t pay much attention to, such as enemy creeps, neutral merchants, or even animals and other background characters.

 

 

When it comes to video games, artificial intelligence has grown leaps and bounds, allowing us to have some of the most realistic gameplay experiences yet.  Video game AI’s have come a long, LONG way from Pong on Atari and Goombas in popular Nintendo games marching along a set path.  Video games are now able to carry out complex commands, and artificial intelligence is the key behind it all.  AI developers are now able to create AIs that can actually think, learn, and even develop their own personalities.  AI not only affects how we interact with and play video games, but it affects almost every aspect of our life (whether you realize it or not).

 

Artificial intelligence isn’t just being used to make games better, it’s actually learning to develop games!  You read that right, AI can recreate a game, just by watching it!  Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology are developing an AI that can recreate a game engine simply by watching gameplay.  This technology is being created in an effort to aid video game developers to speed up game development and experiment with different styles of play.  During the researchers’ most recent experiments, the AI they’re developing watched two minutes of Super Mario Bros. gameplay, and then was able to build its own version of the game by studying frames and predicting future events.

 

 

Video games have always been at the forefront of experimentation with artificial intelligence systems and the gameplay has become more engaging and entertaining along the way.  Rather than getting stuck in a frustrating loop with a partially intelligent NPC (non-player character), these background characters will also learn and evolve so when you play the same level more than one time, it won’t be the same allowing a unique experience each time you play the game.  Imagine playing Super Mario Bros. where the Goombas and other characters can actually change path and move in ways that they never could before.  Imagine your opponents learning your strategy and making you think outside the box to change the pattern and beat the AIs.  Imagine possibly being able to play your favorite games like Super Mario Bros. in virtual reality, stomping Goombas in real life!  I’m super excited about where AI and video games are headed, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

 

I hope you’re all ready to see where AI and video games are going next!  Thanks again to Andrew Charlton for sponsoring the fun content 🙂
