I hate to say this, But the reality is…. Christmas is approaching us very quickly!!!
Tonight I was at work and they had Christmas Music on.. I was ready to run for my life!
Anyways, With Christmas coming the shopping has begun and for some of you it night not have even started. I’m one of those who usually shops at the last-minute hoping to get every penny I can get together to get my son everything he deserves but everyone is as fortunate.
I want to do something different with this review and giveaway.
First let me tell you about Marble Mania…
This is one of those toys us parents hate… Because we all know we are the one who have to put it together! Haha, I know but my son had so much fun with this that it was worth the time it took to put it together! As much as it drove me nuts that I was being asked every 5 minutes if it was done, I loved the excitement. I loved knowing that my baby was so exited to play with his new toy. And it’s not just a toy. It shows kids how things operate and how just putting things in the right order you can get a pretty awesome effect. And that is learning and I do love anything that will help my son expand his mind.
Everything comes packed nicely and organized. The instructions were very easy to follow. Now I am use to putting everything together. I put the swing, pack n play, bounce, stroller, crib and walker together by myself. I am pretty handy when it comes to most of these things. So for me it was easy to follow is what I should say! All the bags are tagged with the product number so you can easily find what you are looking for!
This is the bottom of what will be a pretty large toy! Let me tell you, I made it to this part and had to stop for like 5 minutes so the boys could play with the gears. They were super excited!! LOL
Ahhh and it begins… Are you done yet? Now? UGH, Ma… Are you done? How much longer? Why are you taking so long? AHHH I loved the excitement but OMG… I wanted him to stop! It’s like the typical long car drive… Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How about now? HAHAHAHA I love it though!!!
AND NOW PRESENTING…..Marble Mania!!!! =P
It did take some time to put together but it was so worth it in the end. Jaiden and his friend Tyler had a blast! They loved watching how everything worked and watching all the marbles. They loved when they all came out one after another!! It was great!!
My only suggest is that you glue most of the pieces. Boys are kind of rough and well lets just say a few pieces kept falling off. They would turn the little wheel so hard stuff started to pop out-of-place!! LMAO. I guess I can’t blame them because honestly… I even had fun playing with it. It was really fun! =)
I did have a small video to show you all but honestly, I think I deleted it by mistake because I can’t find it anywhere!! Opps…
“I love it, because the ball was going and going and then goes up and does it again. I love it because you put it together for me and it was so much fun” – Jaiden
He really had a blast with this toy!!!!
Here are a few other photos of the process. Haha. They were trying to hard to be patient…
Now, I stated I wanted to do something different this time around. With it being the Holidays and the season of giving I want to hear about a child you would give this gift to. About 4 years ago my mom and I spent about $200.00 or so on food for a family for thanksgiving.
It’s important to help people.
I know we are all on a budget and could basically all use the extra help. I know getting one extra toy to put under the tree would be helpful to everyone. But let’s be honest… Christmas is NOT about toys, It shouldn’t be. It’s about spending time with our loved ones and just enjoying their company. I am not religious so it may be more for some of your folks but for us, it’s about family!
I know kids don’t get that, the gifts are just an added bonus.
