How about Skylanders for Easter!

Skylanders Trap Team has hopped into the Easter spirit with three limited edition toys: Eggsellent Weeruptor, Power Punch Jet-Vac and a special Bunny Earth Trap! Weeruptor and Jet-Vac are Minis characters made especially for Spring holiday and feature pastel colors and an egg-shaped package design. 

Furthermore, Skylanders Trap Team has partnered with Crayola on a special edition Color Alive! Starter Pack! The packs, available now, allow kids to bring coloring to life on tablets or smartphones through Crayola’s new Color Alive! 4D Experience augmented reality technology. The limited edition packaging features unique black and white line art of Skylanders characters for Portal Masters to color using Crayola’s Crayons included in the Starter Pack.


Eggsellent Weeruptor: Weeruptor was chosen as this year’s official mascot for the Annual Dragon Egg Hunt!  Being new to this time honored tradition, he disguised himself as a candy-coated egg and proceeded to capture Spyro, Cynder, and Drobot within a Traptanium basket… sort of missing the point of the occasion.  But what he lacks in point-getting, he more than makes up for in “Eggsellence!”



Power Punch Jet – Vac: Jet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham.  He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Air Barons.  But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety.  This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Air Baron and presented him with a gift – a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.



Bunny Earth Trap:The Bunny Earth Trap is one of the most unique Traps of the bunch and features a cute bunny-themed design.

You can find this special edition pack at most major retail stores or by visiting Amazon here.

March 31st is Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day

It's never to early to be per-paired for the worse, its always good to have a emergency plan, and teach your children the importance of being safe. Chuggington Fire Patrol is here to help little ones learn about staying safe in case of a fire. We hope no one ever has this happen but it the mean time plan ahead and teach younger ones to stay low, feel doors and get out safely and most important have a meeting spot. 

My kids and I have a meet up spot and for teaching purposes on my end but for them thinking its fun we do a practice test once a month of ducking low, feeling doors and meeting in our safety spot, Sometimes we like to add a little drop and roll, to the drill also : ) the kids love this one. 



Enjoy the new DVD with you little ones called Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue. You can also download this fun coloring sheet for the kids by clicking here



In honor of “Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day,” and to help keep your family and young trainees safe all year-round, here are some important tips from Firechugger Asher and the National Fire Protection Association:

·         Asher says, “Plan ahead!”
Create a home escape plan so every member of your family knows what to do and where to go if there’s a fire. Designate a meeting spot, such as a tree or mailbox, that’s a safe distance from the home. And practice your home fire drill both at night and during the day.

·         Asher says, “Stop a fire before it starts!”
Keep matches and lighters out of sight and out of reach from children. Store them up high, preferably in a locked cabinet or drawer. It’s also important to teach kids that lighters and matches are tools for adults only and that they should tell a grown-up if they see these items lying around.

·         Asher says, “Cool it in the kitchen!”
Always keep an eye on the stove while you’re cooking, and use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Create a “kid-free zone” around the stove as well as areas where hot food and drinks are prepared. And make sure to keep anything that can catch fire, including oven mitts and towels, away from hot appliances!

·         Asher says, “Sound the alarm! “
Smoke detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. Make sure to install smoke detectors on every floor of the home, especially inside and outside bedrooms. Don’t forget to test all smoke alarms at least once a month!

·         Asher says, “Stay low and stay out! “
If, during a fire, you have to escape through smoke, get low, go under the smoke and close the doors behind you as you leave each room. It’s crucial to remind children that, once outside, they should never go back inside for anything, including pets or toys. It’s best to wait to call the fire department until you get outside and are a safe distance away from the fire.

Asher says, “Follow these blazin’ safety tips and you’ll be in control and ready to roll if there’s ever a fire.”

Time for some Smirnoff!

March 17th is the day to paint the town green and celebrate the Irish culture. Whether you’re of Irish descent or not, you’ve likely heard of and even participated in a famed Irish tradition by ducking out of a party, social gathering or very bad date without bidding farewell. While this may exhibit poor etiquette, an Irish Goodbye sure does make for a fun inspiration to a delicious St. Patrick’s Day cocktail.

This St. Patty’s Day, celebrate like you’re in a Dublin pub with the Irish Goodbye recipe. Drop a .75oz. shot of Smirnoff Kissed Caramelvodka into an 8oz. glass of hard apple cider and hold onto your shamrocks (and your manners)! 

Below you can find the recipe card for the Irish Goodbye:



.75oz Smirnoff Kissed Caramel Vodka
8oz. Hard Apple Cider
Drop Smirnoff Kissed Caramel Vodka into 8oz Hard Apple Cider
Bottoms Up

If your not into the strong taste of Smirnoff's Kissed Caramel Vodka why not try out their amazing line of Ice Cocktails. What I love about the line is that you can drink it on its own at any time. I purchase and enjoy after a long days work, its a great way to relax and let loose while still being in control at all times. Because as all alcohol beverages Please drink responsibly.  

Of course though like any alcohol beverage its always fun to mix it up and here are some great recipes for mixed drinks using Smirnoff's Ice Cocktails.

Happy National Bubble Week! March 8th-March 14th!



Bubble Week originated in 2000 as a way to celebrate spring. Because bubbles are such an iconic, fun outside toy, it’s only natural to use these floating spheres to usher in the season synonymous with outdoor play, laughter and sunshine.

Here are some ways everyone can celebrate!
·         First, get some bubbles! Gazillion Bubbles solution makes the biggest, brightest and most colorful bubbles around! And ramp it up with awesome bubble toys!


o   Gazillion Bubble Monsoon -- create a skyward storm of bubbles instantly! Simply replace the cap on the bottle ofbubble solution with the auto-feed cap (included), attach the solution bottle to the machine, press the button and watch in amazement as the sky fills with bubbles!




o   Gazillion Bubbles Tornado -- This machine may be small, but once you pour in Gazillion Bubbles solution, you’ll instantly see an endless flurry of bubbles with the Gazillion Bubbles Tornado!



o   Gazillion Bubbles Bump-N-Go Bubble Car – Fuel the car with Gazillion Bubbles solution, turn the car on and watch as it drives around, blowing bubbles on the go! Don’t worry if it bumps into something, it will change direction and keep moving while a trail of bubbles follows in its path!

·         Try out some bubble tricks! How do bubbles work? Are bubbles always round? What happens to bubbles when you change the temperature? Test out these questions and more with fun, easy bubble experiments.

o   Find all the bubble experiments here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bh3rgf7lp8wzt53/Bubbleexperiments.pdf?dl=0

·         Take the bubble test! Did you know:
o   Bubble Gets Its Color From IridescenceAs waves of light pass through the bubble, it gets distorted by reflecting off different layers of soap film.
o   You Can Freeze Bubblesbubble’s shell is composed of a layer of water molecules surrounded by two thin layers of soap. Technically, a bubble will freeze below 32 degrees Fahrenheit like all water. The only problem is that bubbles tend to burst after a few seconds, so in order to see a bubble freeze, the temperature needs to fall to a temperature that will freeze water molecules more quickly.
o   Why Do Bubbles Burst?Anything that fractures the tenuous layer of water molecules can cause a bubble to burst. For example, a gust of wind or an object (like your finger) will easily cause a bubble to burst. Also, a bubble will burst if enough of the water molecules evaporate.
o   Many Bubbles Makes A FoamWhen many bubbles are joined together, it becomes a foam. From cappuccinos to the foam on the top of your beer, bubbles are all around us.

 Gazillion Bubbles are loved the world over by people of all ages.  There’s even a Gazillion Bubble Show in New York City (http://gazillionbubbleshow.com/), and an exhibit at the So Cal Children’s Museum focused on them.  For kids, bubbles are pure fun for spring and summer outdoor frolic.  For adults, (where you’ll find them at events such as proms, weddings and more,) they symbolize peace, harmony and beauty.

Start BUBBLE SEASON right, and pop into a store today to stock up.  And don’t forget to share your bubble memories and enter the annual photo contest with prizes monthly March 1, 2015 to August 30, 2015 www.facebook.com/funrisetoys.
