Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool!

As the mom to two boys, the most exciting part about starting a toy review channel on YouTube is the fact that we’re also reviewing (and playing with) girl toys!  In the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to play with friends’ little girls and my sweet niece, but there hasn’t been much demand for dolls, kitties, princesses, or pinks and purples in my home.  Having said that, my boys had almost as much fun as I did playing with the Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool!

This super cute playset from Mattel is part of the Chelsea doll’s world collection.  It includes Chelsea, wearing a heart-patterned swimsuit, a yellow duck tube float, and she’s holding a pink dolphin toy that squirts water.  Accompanying Chelsea are her dog Taffy and two puppies.  The toys each add their own fun stunts to the playground, which includes the pup pool, a big slide, and a diving board.  Taffy performs a flip worthy of 10 points from the slide.  The other puppies can ride their dog-bone floaty down the slide or jump off the diving board.  Chealsea can slide down the slide herself, but she required us to hold her while jumping off the diving board, as the doll cannot stand up by herself, which is typical for Barbie dolls.  My boys loved playing with the two smaller puppies because they are squirt toys.

We also had a Kira doll, sold separately, join the pool party. Kira wears a purple and teal swimsuit and she has a purple whale tube float.   Her hair is styled in adorable thick pigtails.  The Chelsea doll’s world series also includes one other dolls for add-on.

The three friends are also sold as a set.

My boys and I played with this playset for hours.  We sent Batman down the slide.  Some SickBricks jumped off the diving board.  Other guest appearances included:  Shopkins, Hello Kitty, and My Little Pony.  You name it, if we had the figurine, we flipped it!

We finally cleaned up and set out all the toys to dry in time for dinner.  The boys kept asking to play more, but I had to explain that the Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool is prize pack #1 for our latest giveaway.  LINK TO GIVEAWAY HERE  I promised them that we’d have more Barbie toys to play in the future!  Yay for girl toys!

 

Lego Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace

Lego Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace is a fabulous build!  We highly recommend this set for your Lego and princess enthusiast.

This 143-piece set includes Princess Jasmine, her pet tiger Rajah, the palace, and four other smaller accessory builds.  Bag one includes the Jasmine minifigure and all of the pieces to make Alladin’s magic carpet, a pedestal for Genie’s lamp, a marketplace stand with magic potions, a water feature that is reminiscent of the one that Queen Elsa freezes, and a shaded area for Rajah to eat.  There is also a snake charming toy.  Bag two includes all of the pieces to construct the opulent palace which is adorned with purple flowers, torches, a gilded domed roof, luxurious furniture, and pretty stickers.

Once built, the playset is a fun, interactive toy.  Jasmine can ride the carpet around her kingdom, roam around the palace, feed her pet, and take care of the grounds.  Add in other Lego minifigures or other Disney princesses for unlimited play scenarios.

The set is labeled for ages 5-12.   Surely this a a fun build for any Disney Princess fan, though!

Crazy Weekend Giveaway 2

Monsters, Inc. Sulley Egg Surprise! Huevos Sorpresa!

Hey!  This is Feepy at Toy Toons Reviews.  I just opened my first play-doh egg.  My mom made a Sulley from Monsters, Inc.  I watched her make it, too.  Well, after she hid the prizes inside.  She used a stuffed Sulley to get an idea how he looks.  I think he turned out pretty awesome. Later she made a Mike wazowski, and I made the little horns for him.

Then I got to open the Sulley for a surprise egg video.  Pulling apart the play-doh pieces was fun.  When I got down to the plastic egg, I could already tell there were Lego minifigures inside.  Booyah!  And they were actually Series 13 which is awesome because I don’t have any of those yet.  Plus there was a Sickbricks bag.  He was Hiro Thunderbutt.  That’s a new one for me.

I got 5 of the Series 13 Lego minifigures.  I looked them up for the official names: Galaxy trooper, alien trooper, evil wizard, classic king, and goblin.  I hope I can find all the rest: Snake charmer, lady cyclops, paleontologist, carpenter, hotdog man, Sheriff, samurai, disco diva, sensor, unicorn girl, Egyptian warrior.  I was stoked to get 5 out of 5 with no duplicates.

Are you a Lego collector?  We have a giveaway for some Series 12 and Simpsons.  Check it out:

Play-Doh Surprise Egg 1

We’re unwrapping a custom coral reef Play-doh egg filled with a wonderful surprise!

Be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel!

We love watching Youtube creators open hand-crafted Play-doh eggs, and we were so anxious to try making our own.  We decided to go with a coral reef theme to match the fun contents of the surprise inside the egg.  First we rolled out the aqua dough and applied it to the plastic egg.  Then we rolled, cut, and applied the coral, the goldfish, and the purple octopus.  Very pretty!

Our little one was on stand-by for the reveal.  He snatched the goldfish right away.  Inside the surprise Play-doh egg was a Lego Friends building toy.  It was the Seal’s Little Rock from series 6.  Again, our little one kept occupied with the Lego seal and Lego fish figurines while mom started the build.  The instructions for this set were very clear, and it was a quick assembly.  The final display is an adorable seal with a bow on her head.  She has various platforms surrounded by pink flowers.  She also has a see-saw and yellow ball for play, and a fish for play or training incentive.

Let us know if you like to see custom Play-doh eggs.  We’re excited to make more!  There are some really cool ones here:  DCTC link.

Play-Doh Smashdown Hulk

Play-doh Can-heads Smashdown Hulk with bonus Ironman play set is one of the most fun and interactive play-doh toys we’ve ever tried.  The set features and Incredible Hulk action figure with five built-in molds: a jet, a tank, a wheel, and two bricks.  Hulk’s head is a can of green play-doh.  Hulk’s arms smash down when the can-head is depressed.  The arms move well, and it is easy to crush the play-doh creations.

The Ironman can-head is a smaller companion toy with blue play-doh and fewer features, but the one stamp under his feet is an awesome fire blaster.  It was simple to create a very clean mold that kept all of the details intact.

The action figures, alone, kept the kids busy while mom had fun trying out all the molds.  We really like the bricks, as they’re easy to mass produce quickly for Hulk to smash.

We spent hours playing with this toy right out of the box, and we look forward to playing with this toy in combination with other can-heads in the series, especially Spider-man.  We really appreciate Marvel super hero toys that are appropriate for little ones.  They allow creative play battles that are innocent and non-violent, but still incorporate popular action figures doing fun stunts.

Stay tuned for our next can-head unboxing review:  Spider-man & Green Goblin.

In the meantime heck out the play action here:

The Big Chocolate Bunny Surprise

The Big Chocolate Bunny Surprise was a crazy, fun family effort.  We set out to experiment with creating our own Easter – Spring – themed treat, something even bigger than the surprise egg phenomenon.

Finding a jumbo, hollow chocolate bunny proved to be an all-day effort. Our local Walgreens and Wal-mart only carried the 18 oz variety.  Thankfully, CVS had one 32 oz Palmer Big Binks in stock!  We estimated that 7 blind bags of trinkets would fit inside.  Back to Walgreens for the best selection of mystery items.   Walgreens was heavy on the boy blind bags:  Minecraft minifigures, Star Wars Fighter Pods Micro Heroes, Lego Minifigures.  We found a few items that would appeal to girls:  Despicable Me Minion Surprise, My Little Pony minifigure, and a Lego Friends set that ultimately didn’t fit inside the bunny.

To create the masterpiece, we laid out the bunny on  a cutting board.  We heated a heavy-duty steel chef knife over a stove-top flame.  Starting from the ears, we slid the knife down along the side-seams from the bunny’s factory assembly.  We went about half-way down the top part of the bunny before the knife had cooled.  We wiped the knife clean and heated it over the flame again.  Then we completed slicing the bunny to the bowtie and separated the two halves of his head.  We repeated this procedure for the bottom half of the bunny.  We carefully wiped away some melted chocolate from inside the bunny, making sure not to wipe the seams.  We quickly placed the blind bags inside the hollow bunny and replaced the bottom half.  The chocolate adhered very well.  We stood up the bunny and replaced his head.  Whew!  It worked.  The bunny was back in one piece.  (We had a few shards fall off the back side, but nothing major.)  We did our best to buff off fingerprints with a paper towel.  Try not to touch the bunny’s face.

Next we held our breath as we moved the bunny into the video studio for his Youtube premier:

The kids had a blast watching the chocolate bunny get dismantled and the revealing of the toys.  They had been “waiting their whole lives” for a Minecraft minifigure.  Fights have ensued over the Creeper.  One kid thought the bunny was cute.  One kid thought he looked creepy, but he also called dibs on eating the eyes.  The chocolate is not the tastiest, but there was something fun about eating a few bites after all the effort.  We’re not sure how well our crafting efforts fit into today’s Pinterest landscape, but this was a really fun project and a surprise that your kids are sure to love.
