Summer Fun For Everyone

 

Well guys, summer is officially here. Yesterday I watched my youngest graduate kindergarten while I cried like a baby.  My other two children have also moved on to 7th and 10th grade, and today is our first day of summer break! I was dreading hearing “Mom…I’m bored” all summer long so I set out to find a variety of toys that would help me make it through the summer just a little bit more sane. Here are some of our favorite picks for summer fun:

 

 

Splash Out is an action-packed extreme outcome game, where you need to provide answers quickly and correctly, and pass the ball on, or you will get splashed out!  At its core, Splash Out features a ball that contains a water balloon. It includes a wind-up timer, and when the timer goes off, the water balloon is punctured.  Whoever is holding the ball gets splashed with water!  This is a fun game that the whole family can have fun with, even Mom and Dad!  The box suggests ages 8 and up, but my daughter who is 6 can play with no problems and has tons of fun.

 

 

Kids will have a JUMBO good time this summer with the new Mega Melon Sprinkler Ball from Prime Time Toys.  Standing 3 feet tall, this giant, melon ball of fun, spouts water from four different fountains, and connects to a standard garden hose for super convenient fun.  It’s the super soaker inflatable of the summer and you don’t want to be caught without one!

 

Getting the upper hand in competition has never been easier with the Tidal Storm Battle Monster. The pressurized supermax water blaster action will send water soaring up to 38 feet! Dominate Battle Monster’s two blast modes. Attach to standard garden hose for Constant Blasting. For Blasting on the go, detach garden hose and use Battle Monster’s standard pressurized water blasting mode. Pump to build pressure and pull trigger for continuous stream. Each blast mode works with the adjustable spray nozzles.

 

 

Headed to the beach this summer?  This handy, stackable beach basket has everything! The Deluxe 20 Piece Beach Basket Set from American Plastic Toys includes a lid which doubles as a sieve. The roomy basket holds a pail, two boats, three hand tools, three castle molds, three large sand shapes, four medium sand shapes, a large character shovel, and a sprinkling can.

 

 

Like most homes, we BBQ a LOT during the summer.  This American Plastic Toys My Very Own Grill toy is perfect for little ones to cook alongside the grillmaster.  Train them on the grill early with the American Plastic Toys My Very Own Grill. It features wheels, side shelves, and a lightweight lid. Your little one will barbeque just like mom and dad with realistic grill. The eight-piece accessory set includes tongs, spatula, and playfood.

 

 

Another SUPER fun beach toy is the American Plastic Toys Seashell Roller.  This long, wooden-handled, ocean-themed roller is sturdy and perfect for a day of fun at the beach. Simply press and roll it over damp sand to make imprints of starfish, crabs and sea shells!

 

With these fun accessories, I’m looking forward to summer being one big ball of fun.  Make sure you grab a few of these to keep on hand for those ‘I’m bored’ days in your home too!

Summer Fun For Your Four-Legged Friends

 

I’m sure you all know by now how much my fur-kids LOVE trying out new stuff.  We got an incredibly ‘pawesome’ shipment of pet products that we couldn’t wait to dive into!  If you’re looking for fun new products to help keep your furbabies (cats OR dogs) busy this summer, check out our top pet product picks for summer 2018:

 

 

Petlinks has some AMAZING pet beds that your cats and dogs will go nuts over!

The Petlinks premium pet beds with gel memory foam cushion provide cooling comfort while conforming to your pet’s body contours.  Gel beads cool and comfort while memory foam relieves achy joints.  Cover is removable and machine washable so if there’s any accidents the cleanup is a breeze!  The reclaimed memory foam mix is made of shredded leftover remnants from foam manufacturing, keeping waste out of landfills for a product you can feel great about.  Petlinks therapeutic pet beds help relieve join pain and ease tired muscles by evenly distributing your dog’s weight to help rejuvenate him while he rests.

 

 

Any pet lover knows that dogs love the feel and sound of “squeaky” toys, but enduring the high-pitched repetition in the wee hours of the night can drive any pet-parent crazy!   Ultrasonic HEAR DOGGY! toys are made with a squeaker ONLY your dog can hear!  Hear Doggy! plush toys give your pet the same sensation and enjoyment of traditional squeaky toys without the irritating noise!  The science behind Hear Doggy!: Dogs can hear sounds at a higher frequency (0 to 45 KHz) than humans (0 to 20 KHz).  Tuned to an ultrasonic range in the 24-28 KHz frequency, each Hear Doggy! squeaker is out of human hearing range, but still fun for your four-legged friend.

 

 

Whether your cat likes scratching or playing, SmartyKat has some great picks!

Scratching helps cats stretch, tone muscles and even helps alleviate stress.  The rough texture of sisal provides a particularly vigorous workout and is an exceptionally durable scratch surface.  This tower is made with materials that also replicate natural surfaces found in nature…sure to please the pickiest of paws especially when combined with another feline favorite, carpet.  SmartyKat Claw Tower is a super-sized 2-in-1 sisal and carpet scratch post which allows cats to stretch and scratch.

What dog doesn’t love a great plushy, squeaky toy, right?  My dog Beast has absolutely fallen in love with his new goDog plush chewies and goes rooting through his bed full of toys to find just the right one each time.

 

What I love most about these chew toys is the Chew Guard technology.  A wide array of goDog toys are available with tough Chew Guard Technology™, so even the toughest jaws won’t destroy them!  Chew Guard offers added durability to help toys stand up to tough chewers.  goDog toys are bright and colorful, perfect for the summer fun!
