Dragons universe

We were selected to have a dragons universe party. My two oldest boys were very excited about this. Unforunately it only ended up being a couple kids over but they all had a great time. We didn't open the toys prior to them coming over but rather put them together with everyone. It was quite amusing to see the dads working on this project. I would post pictures of them putting them together however the camera that had the pictures on it is temporarily ( hopefully) missing at the moment.

So on to a review on them. The boys loved them of course. Mommy had a fun time watching them put it together. I really think these teach them how to focus. Granted it isn't fun when the one year old grabs ahold of pieces but watching my two oldest sons focus on the directions.

My sons have a hard time focusing on other toys for a period of time unless it's a video game. This really was a pleasant change for them.

Dragons universe is a great gift idea to keep them busy and I'm including the dad in that one!!!

Gamestop Christmas list!

1. What is your holiday wish for your family?
I really want to get my boys the kinect! They love the wii and the kinect uses their body so they would be active and moving around but still playing their games so shhh mommy likes this idea but they don't need to know that.
2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?
So far our kids haven't done the typical run into mommy and daddys room and yell Santa came. But nonetheless they are wide awake in their new pjs that were opened the night before!
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
Actually I want the Zumba game and Zumba DVDs and a pair of shape up shoes
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money? I just like to see the family Together and smiling. So that usually means playing video games.
