It’s that time of year again!
Time for our Annual Toy Review and GIVEAWAY!
Where did the year go? Please contact me if you can help me turn back the hands of time. Please. Pretty Please!
Do your kids have too much junk? Mine do. And yet birthdays and Christmas continue to come our way each year. The teacher and frugal Mommy within me hates to travel down the toy aisle, knowing most of the toys will not stand the test of time. They will be unwrapped, played with and then tossed aside.
I don’t want to be the “There are starving children in Cambodia,” Mommy, but I am. Because I’ve seen it with my own eyes. I don’t want to be a drag, I simply want my children to appreciate the blessing which they have. So when it comes to gifts and toys our family attempts to keep things levelheaded and inspirational. I like gifts and toys that inspire children to explore, create, problem solve and grow. Again, my family is NOT perfect. We own waaaaay too much junk. But I”m always striving to live up to my good intentions!
Here we go . . . another Christmas with toys that will inspire children to explore, create, problem solve and grow . . .
Meet Micro CUBEBOT!
MacGyver met CUBEBOT in a friendly, little kid’s shop during our family vacation to Florida.
It was love at first sight!
Seriously, Look at CUBEBOT! If you know anything about MacGyver, you know he could not keep his grubby little hands off of CUBEBOT.
Bring on the Challenge!
How fast can you turn CUBEBOT into a cube?
The totally engaging woman that worked in the shop, told MacGyver the object was to turn CUBEBOT into a square.
Twist, turn, pull, yank, fold . . . DONE!
I know I shouldn’t be one of those bragging Mommies; nonetheless, the lovely woman in the shop exclaimed that MacGyver’s time was, “Off the charts! He definitely has a spatial gift!” Give me a break, I’m a proud Mommy.
The clerk also shared that recently an engineering professor bought a bunch of CUBEBOTS to challenge his grad students. So there you go – a gift that is fun and educational.
CUBEBOT likes to sit and read . . .
He enjoys going for a run . . .
He even likes just hanging around.
Micro CUBEBOT Review, MacGyver, age 10
“I give Micro CUBEBOT 5 stars. Unlike a Transformer, you can turn CUBEBOT into endless ideas. A Transformer can only turn into two things. CUBEBOT has a nice friendly face and won’t scare little kids like a Transformer might. CUBEBOT is quite portable as you can fold it into a cube and put it into your pocket. It is strong and the rubber bands hold it all together. It won’t fall apart like a Transformer. I wouldn’t recommend the big CUBEBOT because the rubber bands will ‘bite’ you and it is too expensive.”
Micro CUBEBOT Review, Miss Enigma, age 7
“I like it because it comes in all kinds of colors like rainbow, green, orange and even pink It comes in a variety of colors!”
CUBEBOT Review, Mommy, age 40ishishish
CUBEBOT is perfect for keeping little hands busy. MacGyver is constantly tugging, pulling, folding . . . transforming CUBEBOT into different poses, boats, cars, birds, dinosaurs, a castle . . . . All of the sturdy wooden pieces are attached by strong elastic bands. The small size makes it quite portable and perfect for car rides or dinners out to a restaurant. Such a versatile toy for under 10 bucks; it’s worth every penny!
You won’t find a better stocking stuffer for children who like puzzles and transformer type toys.
