Fake News Or Not? Board Game

Fake News or not Board Game

There are lots of controversial news we hear almost every day, from politics, economy to entertainment and sports. Sometimes it is hard to believe that it is happening for real. If you want to test your knowledge and probably become a news anchor for a while, Fake News Or Not? Card Game is what you need. Can a player figure out which stories are real and which are fake?

Designed for kids ages 12+ and adults, the game requires from two to eight players. Fake News Or Not? contains 200 double-sided news cards and "A" and "B" cards. Every playing News card has the beginning of a news story along with three wrong answers and one correct answer. Each player acts as The News Anchor for the round. Then next player becomes The News Anchor.

The game does not take much time, approximately 20-30 minutes. We played the game and some news is really difficult to figure out whether true or false. Especially ones related history or when both choices (true and fake news) seem totally unrealistic.

Fake News Game

Although there are three fake news that are written on each card, The News Anchor reads only one Real News and one Fake News for other players to vote. Each player has an "A" card and a "B" card. If a player thinks the first story is true, he/she places "A" card face down on the table. Same thing, if the player believes the second story is real, then he/she places "B" card face down. The News Anchor chooses which story to sound first and which one second. For every correct guess, the player gets one point. All points need to be recorded to keep score for each player in the game. The player with the most points wins.

I find this game truly challenging, because besides news this game require your knowledge of chemistry, history, physics and many other things. Often our players relied on wild guess. For example, Which was the first toy to be advertised on TV?, Nine months after which 1965 event 35% more babies were born in New York City? or What happened after the 1824 premiere of Beethoven's 9th Symphony?

Fake News Or Not

Overall, it is great game to play in a good company of family and friends. It is both fun and educational activity for kids and adults. Life brings unbelievable news but in this game you will find that real stories can be absolutely crazy.

Jakks Pacific Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker

Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker

JAKKS Pacific Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker is food activity kit that allows children to make their very own chocolate surprise eggs! We like Kinder surprise eggs and the idea of making own chocolate eggs was very intriguing.

Designed for kids ages 6+, Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker set includes one egg maker, one dispenser, two egg molds, four capsules, six foils and four chocolate pouches. The Maker was easy to put together and all part are pretty good quality except may be a dispenser.

JAKKS Pacific Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker

We followed the instruction and it says melt one pouch in hot water, so we did it and filled the dispenser with melted chocolate from one pouch. When we started to release it to make a chocolate-covered egg, it was not enough even to cover a quarter of the egg. So we realized that we need to use all four chocolate pouches to make one covered egg. After melting the rest of chocolate we tried to use the dispenser but the content instead of coming forward went back through the holder. Finally, we managed to cover one egg, it was kind of hard because we had to take leaking chocolate and put it back into the dispenser. It was total mess but it was fun.

To make another egg we needed extra chocolate to melt. In the capsules we added Lego Christmas toys. Our creations looked like pretty chocolate eggs except the capsules attachments on both sides. They were not fully covered with chocolate.

JAKKS Pacific Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker

We wrapped the eggs made in foils that were included in the set. Our final versions were ready.

Chocolate Egg

Overall, we had fun making own surprise chocolate eggs. It took time to make just one perfect egg and we finished all the chocolate we had in the set. I can say it worked but it was a little harder than we expected. Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker is available at major Canadian retailers with prices ranging $20-30 CAD.

Make Colorful Swirls with Jakks Pacific's Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker

Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker

Kids are always attracted to colorful food. It is even better when they play little chefs and create something fancy on their own. With new Jakks Pacific's Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker Teddy found a new way to decorate his favorite baking products.

Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker comes as unicorn-shaped chilled dessert maker. It looks like a toy at first but it is more powerful. Designed for kids ages 5- 10, this swirl maker allows easily create the perfect rainbow swirl. The Swirl Maker includes 3 mix packets which kids mix with water and then chill in a fridge to make them ready to use in the maker. Then the special dispenser needs to be filled with the chilled mixes and the Swirl Maker is ready to use. Though there are only 3 packets of three colors (yellow, blue & green) included in the set, children can use only one color, two or mix all three colors. The mixes come as powders to combine with water and they finish quite fast because kids love to add swirls to almost any dessert.

Swirl Maker

To make more swirls you can get Swirl Maker 3 Refill Pack or make your own using swirl paste. Teddy did not like the powder version so we decided to buy and make own refill pack and this time we were able to add more colors to the final creation. It was fun to try Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker. Teddy used it to top cookies and treated the whole family. It was not without laughs and fails as first time Teddy released entire dispenser filling on one cookie almost covering it with rainbow swirl. So it was quite funny to watch.

 photo Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker Chef_zpsqrng8zeq.jpg

Since the set does not include any baked products, you need to buy cupcakes, cookies or ice-cream extra to decorate them, whatever you like the most. Plus, if you like adding sprinkles, the Unicone's horn is designed to add a final touch to children's creations.   


Overall, Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker makes a wonderful Christmas or Birthday gift for kids. It keeps children busy and they experience and learn something interesting. It is a great way for them to be a dessert chef for and impress family and friends with colorful swirls. By the way, they are delicious!

WISP Cleaning System - Getting Ready for Holidays & New Year

miniWISP Cleaning

Most of us don't like cleaning, but everyone loves to live in a clean house. Cleaning can take lots of time and considering how busy our life is, everything what saves our time, more efficient and lasts longer is very welcome. You probably watched various commercials with super cleaning devices coming out on the market every year. I am quite skeptical about them after I bought advertised exceptional microfiber mop and it was just waste of money.

miniWISP

This time I was pleased with the quality and design of The WISP cleaning items. We have two birds so when we were offered to try not just cleaning device but a system, it was great opportunity to join. The WISP Cleaning Set comes with a WISP broom, WISP pan, a holder to do major cleaning work at home, and miniWISP which consists of a pan and a brush to clean smaller messes.

WISP Broom

So what makes WISP to stand out of other cleaning tools? I agree that the broom has a great handle which can be adjusted from 21" to 52". You can use it with one hand. The WISP pan is very convenient to use, you do not need to bend many times, just keep it in place with your foot on it when collecting the mess. If you are young, you probably do not pay attention to it, but our seniors like this feature, so they do not need to bend multiple times while cleaning. But the most impressive are dense electrostatic bristles which can be found on WISP broom and miniWISP brush. The WISP broom dense bristles attached at 90° angle to effectively trap hair, dust, allergens, feathers and other items. Our birds' feathers often can be found everywhere around the house. Since feathers are lightweight, it can be a challenge to clean. They are always floating around and then stick to something you really do not want to. That's why we needed something like WISP to clean our rooms. WISP broom can pull the hair and feathers with fewer chances to escape. It is very useful when trying to clean carpet. I also noticed that though WISP broom bristle are dense, they do not scratch surface and effectively work on multiple surfaces like hardwood, laminate, carpet and tiles.

WISP

MiniWISP is a mini cleaning superhero we got in a set. I like how easily we can clean furniture with it. Its bristles are dense and powerful. Plus when it comes to mini toys like legos, shopkins and other tiny items, miniWISP works like a magic. I also like how a brush and a pan can be attached to each other to take less room. Very helpful cleaning tool to keep in garage, car or even in your bag.

WISP Cleaning

I am glad we had a chance to try WISP Cleaning products, I like its bristles for being strong and durable. The only thing I did not use is a hanger. I think I do not need it for now.

You can get more information about The WISP products by visiting TheWISP.com, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The company often posts discount codes and promotions. The WISP ships to Europe, Canada and US (11 countries in total). Canadians can purchase the set on Amazon.ca with free shipping for $53.95 CAD.

The Collectors Case
The Collectors Case is monthly themed, subscription box filled with 4-6 items including a chance of a celebrity autograph, T-shirt and bonus items. Those meticulously chosen products are the latest trends in the collectors' world. Items you find in a box are intended to support a fan experience and mostly from favorite movies, games, comics and stories.

The value of each Collectors Case exceeds $60, while each box costs only $25 plus shipping and taxes! Basically, it is a good deal considering one T-shirt price is about $25, and subscribers get more goodies in addition to that. You can choose the size of T-shirt when ordering.

The subscription is quite flexible offering various options to customers. You can choose one Month option so you get only one box for yourself  or gift it to someone else. Or you can join monthly subscription and receive a case of goodies every month. Cancel or renew it any time. The Collectors Case we received was a combination of scary stuff, a game and Harry Potter themed items. Teddy liked Freddy's Funko Plush the most. Now they are best friends.


I subscribed to various programs before, it was usually hit-or-miss. But with The Collectors Case everything is pretty much clear what to expect in your next box.

The Collectors Case makes a nice gift even if you just choose only one month gift to family members or friends. You can select December pack or past packs from the Store. The only advice is to order as early as possible because popular themes sell out very fast and T-shirt sizes you need may not be available.

This month Will Stroet, JUNO nominee and the star of Will’s Jams on CBC Kids television performed in Toronto and will be to Vancouver on November 26 with his new Will’s Jams Live Multimedia Show. The show is absolutely incredible and based on children's favorites from Will’s Jams TV series airing on CBC Kids.

We had an opportunity to be at the Will’s Jams Show in Toronto. It was really great concert and Teddy definitely had a good time there. It was nice to see how parents, kids and even grandparents were ignited Will Stroet interactive performance. The songs have very cool rhymes, I can even say that kids can easily remember the words like Gene, Yvgene and good Hygiene.

Will Stroet Toronto

The musical show includes songs in English, French and some in Mandarin. Teddy who speaks English and French also learned how to say "Imagine" ,"Never Give Up" and "Work" in sign language. Most kids spent the whole show on their feet dancing, jumping and having fun. Children played train game pretending they are moving wagons and made funny faces.


The show is not only entertaining but also educational and encourage kids to be more active, healthy, safe and learn new things using their imaginations. Proper hygiene, bike safety, wearing helmet, washing hands and eating more vegetables and fruits are just a few things kids learn through songs.

Pixar's Coco Takes You on Delightful Adventures #PixarCoco

Disney Coco 3D

Coco movie gave us a mix of emotions. It is such a heartwarming, family friendly and powerful from one point and sad, difficult for younger kids to understand from another. The movie follows Miguel and his family who about to celebrate The Day of the Dead with other people of the town. Coco is Miguel's grand grand-mother, they love spending time together. The family story when Coco's father, musician and a guitar player left his family and turns Coco's mom to banning everything related to music for generations.

Disney Coco release

On The Day of the Dead Miguel steps into The Land of The Dead where he becomes surrounded by skeletons and the land itself is a huge, vibrant and colorful. The Land of The Dead lives its own life, special and unbelievable. It has own rules, customs, police officers along with holidays, concerts, celebrities and parties. Miguel wants to find out more about his family history and prove that his grandmother and mother are wrong about their rejection of music in their life. He easily finds his relatives and they are happy to help and give their blessing to send Miguel back. The boy wants to find Ernesto de la Cruz, the legendary musician of his town who could be his relative too. In this journey Miguel meets Hector, who turns out to have no one living and remembering him. If nobody remembers Hector, very soon he will completely disappear. So deal is made between Miguel and Hector, Miguel helps Hector be remembered, and Hector helps the boy to get to his relative Ernesto de la Cruz. I think this friendship brings more than just a partnership. Miguel participates in music competition, meets Frida Kahlo during her stage design process and learn about The Land of The Dead.

Miguel was always told to listen to his family because they want only the best for him. In this story despite of the ban of music, his "dead" relatives still show understanding and support. They are dead but have strength to step over the pain being left behind, feel and hear Miguel as their family member, what he wants, listen and perceive. Skeletons, dead people and death do not look scary in the story. The loss, betrayal and the possibility of being forgotten bring a lot of pain and tears. Coco is more than just children story. It is a story about life, family and dreams.

The movie opens in theatres today across Canada in 3D.

Olaf Frozen

In addition to colorful and spectacular Coco movie, enjoy watching Olaf’s Frozen Adventure 21-min featurette. It brings back to the big screen favorite character including Olaf, who is on a mission to find the best holiday traditions for Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. There are four amazing new song to listen, hope you are going to like them as we did.

We like that figurines perfectly reflect real players, their outfit and gear meticulously designed to proudly represent the game and the player. Bo Horvat takes you on ice and ready to bring hockey action to you! He wears an authentic team uniform, helmet with removable visor, skates, stick and gloves. Time to to shoot, pass and skate!
