toy review #2 product~ Just Like Home Garden

(we got the plant one, tomato one, and pepper one)
The plant one was $8 on sale, the other two were $6 on sale.
We got them from toysrus but you can buy them online at amazon.

suggested age~ 3 and up

All were fun to play with.
The plants come apart in pieces so you have the stem, leaves, and different parts of the flower. The peppers and tomatoes come part also so you have the leaves, stem, and different cuts of each.

these are great for teaching things like~
parts of a plant
cutting vegetables (with a safety knife of course)

Each set comes with storage, you lift up the dirt and the box is hollow and fits all parts inside.

One thing I would suggested to look out for is the box. The corners of all three boxes where a little sharp. I actually cut my finger a little getting it out of the package.

I do recommend these toys for kids! Very good for learning fine motor skills.


  1. Thank you for the feedback. I have had these on my wishlist and wasn't sure of the quality or worth the dollars. They look bigger than I thought. Off to order them now.

  2. we have had them for days now and my kids are still playing with them as if we just bought them. the flower box is about foot long and the other two are about i would say 8 inches long

Big giant slime ball!!

This was such a fun activity! All you need is two boxes of slime baff and a wubble ball. We got the super wobble ball. So to make this epic slime ball use the tube it came with and place it in the ball as directed on the instructions. Next pour in all the slime baff. After that grab a hose and hold it in the tube. At first we did not let it get that big, too scared of it popping.  The kids including neighbor kids loved it. We played kid bowling and let this roll down the driveway. The kids thought it was the best thing ever to see this ball bend around them with out breaking. (will attach videos at the end) 
If you look close you can see the slime forming. You can barely tell it started as a blue ball. 
After awhiel of play we decided to make it bigger. We attached the tube and hose again and let it grow till the kids said stop.  Below is how big it got moments before popping.  This had to weigh a lot. Once the ball popped all the kids had fun playing with the slime. Two actives in o…

Pokemon balls for pretend play

We have made a huge Pokemon ball before but with the new Pokemon game out we decided to size it down a little and make it hand held. We still used styrofoam balls and choose some different type of Pokemon balls to make. So even though none of my kids can actually play the new game that has become such a hit they can still join in, play with their friends and have fun. 

Cookie cutter tried it..our results

When I first seen this idea floating around I got really excited...people made it seem like it was a easy clean way for little kids to help with pumpkin carving. Well after buying a medium pumpkin questioned started to come how is a kid going to get a cookie cutter threw the hard skin of a pumpkin?...anyway here is what happened....
I took the pumpkin first to try this out...cleaned it and let it dry...Then I used one cutter and tried pushing it into the pumpkin...yep that wouldn't work for is way to hard...So then I got out a hammer and started banging on this ...sounds easy right? nope!
The cutter kept slipping from its first spot. So being a good mom I am I called out my 5year old to try this..gave him the hammer and guess what second hit, he missed...hit my finger though...dangerous, maybe?..Anyway even with the hammer this is not have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
