Magformers Paw Patrol 20Pc Ready for Action Set - #magformers Review and Giveaway

Construction toys have many benefits. They allow for creativity and imagination. Kids learn independence, and eye-hand coordination is gained. Throughout the years, my kids have created garages, monsters, cars, forts and more with different brands of construction and magnetic toys.  One brand in that toy category is Magformers.

Magformers use the strongest Rare-Earth Neodymium Magnets for guaranteed connectivity. When playtime is over, use the magnetic power to simply stack and store.  Magformers™ uses magnets to hold the pieces together while children exercise their imaginations. The company has gone to great lengths to ensure that the small magnets are encapsulated safely and will not come loose even with a reasonable level of abuse during play.

A fairly new set from the Magformers line is the Paw Patrol 20Pc Ready for Action Set.  Using 14 magnetic pieces and 6 insert character cards, kids can build and combine Magformers to create awesome paw-riffic builds.  Follow along the idea booklet and play mat for step-by-step building, or use the power of your own imagination to construct your own unique creations.

With this Magformers Paw Patrol construction set, kids can match their favorite characters from the show or even match the colors and shapes together.  Using imagination, kids can create and build a pup house, a cube, and other small concepts.  The Paw Patrol cards inside the Magformers Magnetic shapes are double-sided and can be removed or turned over for a different design to be shown.  The play mats feature Paw Patrol pups and gives kids ideas on what to create.  The pieces themselves are durable and come in assorted colors.  The pieces can also be used with other Magformers sets, and add-ons can be purchased separately.
Win It!

One person will win a Magformers Paw Patrol 20Pc Ready for Action Set.

Purpose Driven Essentials - #pdemini Subscription Box Review

Subscription boxes are all the rage.  People seem to love the idea of receiving themed boxes in the mail every month.  One such company is Purpose Driven Essentials.  Its items are filled with items to help support faith and encourage daily devotion like Christian-inspired Books, devotionals, journaling tools and Christian music.

Purpose Driven Essentials was created with women in mind to help them bring their families closer together and closer to God. The company’s mission is to uplift and encourage by helping families spend quality time together: learning, worshiping and having faith-based fun. Ten of all proceeds go to help missions.

You can decide between individual or family boxes and whether you’d like to send a one-time gift or continue with a monthly subscription box, giving a gift that lasts all year through.  The PDE Mini Kits retail for $32.99 and the Purpose Driven Family Kits retail for $49.95.

I received a sample kit for review and was staggered by what was inside.  The items included in the box were of good quality. I didn't feel like I was getting cheated.  Although I do not Bible journal, I was still able to find good uses for the clear stamp and ink that was part of the box.  The Third Day CD really excited me because I'm a fan of contemporary Christian music and was able to become familiar with songs I hadn't heard from the band before.  The prayer journal is perfect for writing down my prayer requests and for writing sermon notes.

It doesn't end there...  Also included was a Mason Jar printable to cut out and make into bookmarks. Clear encouragement stickers and a hardback devotional book were uplifting.  A small handcrafted booklet with prompts, devotionals, and scriptures is a way to continue with my spiritual walk.  A sample bag of Cookies and Cream popcorn was a nice addition, and a cute mini burlap bag topped it off. 

I definitely recommend Purpose Driven Essentials for anyone who wants a fun and interesting box with remarkable items that are centered towards a walk with Christ.
