About the Doc McStuffins All Better Game:

Make the boo-boos go away like Doc McStuffins with the Disney Doc McStuffins All Better Role Play Game! Each slap bracelet bandage is a different mystery ouchie. Take turns trying to figure out which doctor tool will make things all better! It’s a fun game of pretending and playful problem solving that kids love!

  • Designed for 2 or more players
  • Encourages creative thinking and imagination
  • Enhances matching and memory skills
  • Develops physical dexterity and problem solving skills
  • Includes 1 storage bag, 6 slap bracelet bandages, 6 foam tools, 8 scoring tiles, 1 spinner and 1 rules manual

Review:

My girls, ages 4 & 6, adore this game! It’s a bit of twist on the classic memory game. Instead of just flipping tiles, players spin the spinner and take turns placing bandages (slap bracelets! My girls loved this detail!) on each other. Each bandage has a tool pictured on the bottom. When you spin a tool on the spinner you get to pick a tool and try to remember who has the matching bracelet so you can “fix” their boo-boo and collect a tile if they match. Whoever has the most tiles at the end wins.

I found the game timing to be almost perfect. I played with them the first time to help them understand the game. And then they played alone a couple more times immediately afterwards. The game is not so long that it seems to take forever or they get bored. But it’s also long enough to keep them busy and engaged (so I could make dinner!). The pieces all fit nicely in the doctor’s bag that’s included making storage easy.

My girls loved it! This would be a very fun gift to find under the tree on Christmas morning.

Buy It:

Doc McStuffins All Better Game can be found at most major retailers, including Walmart, Target, and Amazon, among others. It’s retails for around $24.99. Watch for sales and/or coupons!

If you’re in the Salt Lake City area and looking for a fun Halloween activity suitable for kids (and at a price that can’t be beat!) then you should definitely check out the Munchkin Radio Haunted House for Kids. My three kids (ages 4,6, and 9) had the opportunity to check this Haunted House out recently and we had such a good time that we went through twice!

Munchkin Radio Haunted House

Here are the details:

Munchkin Radio presents their 2nd annual Munchkin Radio Haunted House for Kids.

Haunted House Hours:
Thursday, Oct. 17th (7pm-9pm)
Friday, Oct 18th (7pm-9pm)
Saturday, Oct 19th (7pm-9pm)
Friday, Oct. 25th (7pm-9pm)
Saturday Oct. 26th (7pm-9pm)

Address:
14734 Cedar Knoll Circle (type in “Kanoll” for street if using Google Maps)
                                                             Herriman, UT 84096

Cost:  $3.00 per child, Parents are free with their children.

We know that Utahan’s LOVE Halloween! We also know that most Haunted Houses in the Salt Lake area are NOT appropriate for kids. They’re just too darn scary. So Munchkin Radio offers a Kid Friendly Haunted House for the second year. Owner of Munchkin Radio, Mike Peer, says, “You won’t have to worry about anyone chasing you with a pitchfork or chainsaw in the Munchkin Radio Haunted House. We make it so that it’s a little bit cutesy and a little bit scary… after all it is a Haunted House, so it has to be a bit scary.” After last year’s launch, most families walked out saying that it was the PERFECT first Haunted House for my kids.

PLUS:

ALL HALLOWEEN MUSIC in Oct.

Munchkin Radio also offers ALL Halloween Music During the Month of Oct. for listeners. “Let’s face it, Halloween is a Holiday for KIDS. So we just give them what they want: fun Halloween Music”, says owner Mike Peer. “Most radio stations are able to play a handful of Halloween Music as the Holiday gets closer. But there’s really only 3-4 that adults even want to hear for Halloween: “Thriller“, “Ghostbusters“, “Monster Mash“, and maybe an Oingo Boingo song or two. For the kids, we have hundreds of songs to play for Halloween, basically due to the fact that every cartoon character on the planet has a Halloween special with plenty of music for us to choose from.” Halloween Music starts on Oct. 1st.

www.munchkinradio.com is Utah’s only radio station for kids 10 years old and under. We stream 24/7 and have plenty of fun kids music, cool contests, and fun events just for the kids. Munchkin Radio has been around for 4 years now and continues to grow each year and terrestrial radio numbers continues to decline.

My personal experience:

For the last few years I’ve been providing my children with proof that Santa really visited our house. They love it! It’s become such a fun tradition. They always scour the tree Christmas morning (because that’s where Santa leaves it at our house) to find it. It would also be lots of fun to “set up” your camera before bed to see if you can catch him during the night.

iCaughtSanta.com makes it incredibly easy. You just need to upload a picture from your house and choose your Santa. Then you can size him and move him to fit perfectly in the picture. Then all you have to do is either print out the picture or what I do is do it a day or two early (like today!) and send it online to Walgreens’ or Walmart’s one-hour photo (for less than $1) and pick up my print. Love it!

Heber Valley Railroad’s North Pole Express Coupon Code!

Posted by on Dec 7, 2012

I recently had the opportunity to take my family on Heber Valley Railroad’s North Pole Express. I must say it was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season!

We arrived about 45 minutes prior to our departure time (they recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes early). It took just a couple minutes to get our tickets from will call. My kids were filled with anticipation once they saw the trains. (TIP: Make sure to use the restrooms at the depot. There are none on the train and the ride is about 1½ hours round trip.)

We boarded the train and quickly found seats. (TIP: Most of the seat backs are reversible. We started out all facing one way, but on the advice from a fellow passenger we were able to move the back of the seat so that we were all facing each other. So much better! It was much easier to share the experience as a family this way.) The train departed and quickly after our train car “host” was reading Christmas stories, asking passengers where they were from, and everyone had the chance to read & hear some Christmas jokes (my 5-year old daughter has not stopped repeating a couple of them). Elves very cheerily passed out hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies that were simply divine! And soon after Mrs. Claus came through the train car handing out her cookie recipe and talking to the kids & letting them get their picture taken with her.

About 45 minutes into the trip the kids got really excited to see none other than Santa through the window! He was all lit up surrounded by Christmas trees. It was very magical. A few minutes later the excitement in the car reached a peak as Santa boarded. And he was perfect! He stopped and talked to each child and doled out plenty of hugs! There was ample opportunity for pictures and each child (and adult) received their own Christmas bell.

On the way back the entire car sang Christmas carols. The elves were great at being interactive and getting all the kids involved. My 3 year old daughter was chosen to hold a large card with the #3 and picture of hen on it during the singing of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Now every time she hears that part of the song playing anywhere else she excitedly tells me that was her part! My 5-year old is completely convinced that we went to the “real North Pole even though there wasn’t any snow”.

This was such a wonderful experience for us. Everyone at the Heber Valley Railroad was incredibly nice and they really made this a memorable trip. I would love to make it one of our new annual Christmas traditions. I can’t wait to go again next year!

You can check out the Heber Valley Railroad website for more information and to purchase tickets (which start at $20). Or even better we have a North Pole Express Coupon Code to get $5.00 off per ticket! To get the savings you need to call their ticket office at 435-654-5601 and mention the code: UTB12.
