Battroborg Warrior Battle Arena Set Review & Giveaway (9/20)

This giveaway is sponsored by Battroborg. I received this product for purposes of review; however, all opinions here are my own.

battroborg-warrior-battle-arena-set

So are you thinking ahead to the holidays yet? Check out this new Battroborg Warrior Battle Arena Set, now available at Toys R Us, Walmart, and Target with an MSRP of $69.99. Here, you operate battling robots with wireless controllers and try to knock each other down inside the included arena.

battroborg-parts

We tested out the Samurai vs Ninja battle arena set, and these wireless motion control battling robots came with a battle arena, two warrior robots with interchangeable snap-on weapons and armor, and two single handed “katana controllers.” Each controller takes four AA batteries to operate (not included), and you recharge the robots for about 20 minutes of game play by plugging the controllers into their backs. I really do wish that the set came with rechargeable batteries instead — since the robots and the controllers run off the same set of batteries, you’re going to be burning through eight AA batteries pretty fast if this is a hit with your kids.

The Battroborg Warrior Battle Arena Set is recommended for ages 6+, so Mr. 7 and Junior High Guy put it to the test. While they had a blast, I’d say that the set would be best for the 6-9 age range, as Junior High Guy grew jaded more quickly, while Mr. 7 had to play with it again by himself as soon as he woke up this morning.

Then again, MashupDad had himself a good old time too, once they finally let him get his hands on one of the controllers…

knocked-over-the-battroborg

The set as a whole was highly entertaining, although the robots are fairly hard to control with any accuracy and tend to walk themselves into the side of the arena and get stuck. Mr. 7 cares not, as he practices his own ninja moves and is already plotting which friend to invite over to check it out with him, but Junior High Guy got a bit frustrated after a while. There are, however, special and more accurate moves controlled by a power move button + specific motions, with instructions on the Battroborg site to check out — I’ll show Mr. 7 once the initial jump in and get going (without reading directions) excitement wears off.

Target Weddings — Unexpected Adventures + a $25 gift card giveaway

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.

Today let’s talk about the Target Wedding Registry, memorable experiences, and unexpected finds. The registry was a lot of fun to browse, since MashupDad and I have been married for 17 years now — so it’s really been a while since I’ve taken a good look at a wedding registry. There’s lots of neat new stuff out there! For instance, I never would have thought to include a Canon EOS Rebel T5i on ours (not that they even existed 17 years ago…) but how cool to be able take your own high quality honeymoon photos and more.

jellyfish4

Our own most memorable trip recently was to Monterey California to attend my brother’s wedding. It’s so gorgeous out there, and we need an excuse to see far flung family every once in a while. I’m glad I had my phone along to document the whole experience — and I took this jellyfish photo at the Monterey Bay Aquarium just with my phone, but if they’re that impressive with a phone camera, how lovely would Canon Rebel photos have been? The neatest experience there was a little penguin who kept coming right up to the window and following the kids’ every movement with his bobbling head. That, I didn’t get a usable photo of since the penguin moved too fast and the glass was too water streaked, so probably another argument for a real camera.

board-games

One of the things I’ve learned over 17 years of marriage, though, is that you don’t have to travel far from home to build memorable experiences, and that the most important are those you create with family and friends. So when picking products from the Target Wedding registry, I stuck a little closer to home. How fun is it, for instance, that board games are a suggested registry option? This both gives people a lower cost gift alternative, and starts you off with the basis for game nights with friends — and, later on, family!

wine-glasses

Of course, you might want some wine glasses, too, both for use on game nights and for entertaining in general. (These are a nice size, I’m kind of eying them myself, registry or no registry…) Have a summer game night out on the patio, sip some wine, and enjoy the experience.

canon-t5i

And yes, you might also want to included that Canon EOS Rebel T5i to document all these experiences and get togethers — plus, it’s a wedding registry, so it’s fun to put wishes on there too! :)

EcoTools Konjac Facial Sponge Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is sponsored by EcoTools. I received Konjac Facial Sponge products for the purpose of review; however, all opinions here are my own.

konjac-box

I recently had the opportunity to try out EcoTools Konjac Pure Complexion Facial sponges, which come in both deep cleansing and sensitive skin versions. These are handmade with 100% natural ingredients including Konjac vegetable fiber, “a highly renewable root plant indigenous to Asia. It’s traditionally used as a detoxifying dietary staple and as a naturally exfoliating sponge for delicate skin by the Japanese.” Check out the glowing reviews on the EcoTools site, then read on for mine!

softens-in-water

Out of the box, both varieties of EcoTools sponges were hard and unyielding and you wonder how they’d ever make a useful facial sponge. Once you run them under water, though, they become perfectly squishy, and just the right texture for facial cleansing. After use, just rinse with water and leave them out to dry naturally and they harden right back up again.

how-to-use

You can use the sponge with or without cleanser, which is kind of neat! I was a little apprehensive about the deep cleaning version, thinking it would be rough and scratchy on my face. Although it wasn’t as soft as the sponge for sensitive skin, it was still gentle and left my skin softer and smoother rather than reddened like some exfoliating products tend to do. My face also feels very clean after using — and it even felt cleaner when I tried the sponge with just water, no cleanser.

using-sponge-2

(OK, you try to take a selfie while cleansing your face with a sponge! lol) — but you can see that the facial sponge is a nice size to hold, and also a handy shape to get around your chin and nose. One sponge should last you 1-3 months depending no how often you use it and how well you let it dry out, so is really fairly affordable, especially for an all-natural product.

On to the giveaway

What can you win?

  • FIVE lucky Mashup Mom readers will each win their own EcoTools Konjac facial sponges.

How do you enter?

  • Just comment here and let me know whether you’d like to try the sensitive or deep cleansing version, and why!

It’s some KIND of Giveaway (yes it is…) + Kind Bars Review

This giveaway is sponsored by KIND. I received products for the purpose of review; however, all opinions here are my own.

kind-bars

Have you guys seen all these newer and different flavors of bars from KIND? They now have over 22 varieties: So fun, and some combinations you don’t generally see in snack bars, so you can break up your routine! They sent over a sample pack with some more unusual flavor combinations, including Thai Sweet Chili, Honey Mustard, Caramel Almond & Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond, and Hickory Smoked.

boys-eating-kind-bars

All the boys in this house were eager to help out with the product testing, no surprise there! KIND bars are gluten free and non GMO, so Junior High guy was able to partake in Thai Sweet Chili — one of the new all natural STRONG & Kind flavors that packs 10g of protein, with no whey or soy. Thumbs up from him on the flavor, which he pronounced “kind of spicy, but not too bad.” He also ate it in about 30 seconds, so I think “not too bad” is middle school speak for “more of that, please!” This flavor also contains no dairy ingredients, but some KIND bars do, so check nutrition information if you need to avoid dairy like Junior High Guy does.

Mr. 7 here is enjoying Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond, mostly because he hears “mocha” and thinks he’s being a grown-up and getting coffee. ;) I thought those were pretty good too, but my favorite was the same as MashupDad’s…

mashupdad-eats-kind-bar

… Caramel Almond & Sea Salt. Seriously, are all men such a goof when you say you’re going to take their picture? ANYway, he was pleased with this particular flavor because it has 8 net grams of carbs — and all the bars I received are low glycemic.

caramel-sea-salt-kind-bar

But seriously: Yum. Look at all those whole almonds! and caramel! These are crunchy, sweet, and salty for the perfect flavor combo, and I highly recommend them. They also pack a good amount of protein to help fill you up longer.

eating-kind-bar-3

But beyond Almond Sea Salt & Caramel, I really do recommend KIND bars in general. They’re filling, they’re tasty, they’re all natural, and, well… I KIND of like the name. I usually don’t eat a lot of store-bought bars because I don’t care for the artificial flavors or aftertaste, and you just don’t get that with KIND: You get almonds, you get chocolate, you get caramel, you get pumpkin seeds and honey.

Tropical Traditions organic raw honey review and giveaway!

This giveaway is sponsored by Tropical Traditions. Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

tropical-traditions-organic-raw-canadian-honey

Welcome to a great new giveaway sponsored by Tropical Traditions! Read on to find out how to enter to win some of this delicious Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey. This Canadian honey is 100% organic, raw, wild, and unprocessed — and just look how thick it is. Most honey cannot be certified organic, because bees range out for miles from their hives. Certified organic honey has to come from hives in isolated areas, so this honey is from the remote frontier regions of Canada.

tea2

We’ve already found a lot of uses for Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey. MashupDad was recently down with a summer cold, for instance, and made an exception to his low carb rule by adding Tropical Traditions Raw organic honey to his evening tea. He’s been raving about the quality ever since!

avocado-pudding-with-tropical-traditions-honey

And, I used Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey when making Dairy Free Chocolate Avocado Pudding earlier this week. So far it’s been lovely in tea, on its own, or as a natural sweetener for recipes. I’m going to try substituting this for sugar in other recipes, too, since it added a fantastic flavor.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey is unprocessed, unheated, and unfiltered, resulting in a thick, creamy honey that contains pollen and fine textured crystals very unlike the processed honeys you might be used to. The difference, however, is all good: Try organic raw honey, and you’re unlikely to go back.

  • One lucky Mashup Mom reader will win Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey for your very own.

Enter for your chance to win new Lil’ Troops — Plus a Mr. 7 review

This giveaway is sponsored by Lil’ Troops. I received products for purposes of review; all opinions here, however, are my own. Or Mr. 7’s.

lil-patriotic-troops

I recently had the opportunity to review a couple of the new collectible Lil’ Troops military action figures, with the able assistance of Mr. 7. (You can see he got himself all decked out for the occasion… although I am pretty sure the shoes are not standard military attire!)

lil-troops-with-stuff

We received the Urban Trooper and the Desert Trooper to check out. They each came with “stuff,” and can hold their radios, binoculars, canteens, and more. Their legs, heads, arms are also movable, so you can pose them for any situation.

mr-7-with-lil-troops

Mr. 7 got right to work on the posing part (and found it hysterical that you could swivel them all the way around “so their heads are over their you-know, Mom.”

desert-trooper

Each action figure also came with its own flyer telling more about its specialty and a short “troop tip.” These were a big hit with Mr. 7, who adores his Army uncle — but I can see them being a fun and collectible toy for a lot of kids.

Also cool:

A portion of each Lil’ Troops sale is devoted to U.S. Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs. For more information, visit www.armymwr.com.

So let’s give away some Lil’ Troops!

Good Cook Fruit Bowl Giveaway + Watermelon Granita Recipe!

This giveaway is sponsored by Good Cook. I received a fresh fruit bowl for purposes of review. All opinions here, however are my own.

watermelon-granita-mashup-mom

Today I have for you a giveaway and an easy fresh fruit recipe, all wrapped up into one! Let me tell you first about this awesomesauce Good Cook Fresh Fruit bowl, which is only available at Bed Bath and Beyond (or… say… if you win one here…!).

watermelon-fresh-fruit-bowl

This big three-piece bowl features a genius strainer insert that keeps fresh cut fruit from stewing in its own juices, plus an easy pour spout so you can discard the juice that accumulates on the bottom of the larger green bowl. I made this recipe several days ago, stored the other half of the cut watermelon in the fridge, and the bowl is keeping it nice and fresh — in a regular bowl, the pieces on the bottom would be overly juicy and starting to get icky by now.

So, here’s something to make with your fresh fruit this season:

Easy Peasy Watermelon Granita Recipe

Just three ingredients here (optionally four)

5 cups cut up seedless watermelon
1/2 cup sugar (use less if you have a very sweet watermelon)
Juice of one small lime
Mini chocolate chips (optional)

start-to-scrape-2.jpg

Add watermelon, lime juice, and sugar to food processor or blender and combine til smooth. I have an underpowered little food processor, so some of the little white seeds were left in mine. They were pretty inoffensive, but a more powerful machine will take care of that — or pick them out if they bother you.

Pour watermelon mixture into a glass 9×13 pan and freeze for two hours. Scrape up your granita all around the edges as shown above, then refreeze for another two hours. Scrape up the rest of your granita, and serve!

watermelon-granita-with-chocolate-chip-seeds-5

Now, you could get all fancy and serve your cool and refreshing watermelon granita in margarita glasses with some spiral zested lime twists. And maybe add a little vodka. ;) Since I was serving this to kids, however, I thought it would be more fun to put some in a green bowl and add some mini chocolate chips as “seeds.” Now it’s a watermelon recipe… pretending to be… a watermelon!

The hardest part of this recipe

… was actually clearing off a shelf in the freezer so that the granita had a space to freeze up! Mr. 7 has been highly enjoying it, and requests some for dessert every single night. Watermelon granita is naturally dairy free and gluten free, so a great easy summer dessert for families with food allergies.

So let’s give away this bowl!

  • One Mashup Mom reader will win a Good Cook Three Piece Fruit Bowl.

About Fresh Thyme

I’ve talked about Fresh Thyme here before, but here’s their philosophy:

At Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets we believe you shouldn’t have to give away the farm to feed your body nutritious food. We’re on a mission to improve the way our communities eat by offering fresh and healthy food at amazing values — all in a vibrant and fun shopping environment, with smiling friendly faces.

The foundation of healthy eating is often based on incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables in our diets. Therefore, at the core of our offerings is an abundant produce department, overflowing with fruits and vegetables, fresh from the farm, often locally grown and much of it organic. We’re so passionate about produce that we’ve made it the nucleus of the store, ensuring the bounty of fruits and vegetables is visible from all other departments.

Following the Deerfield grand opening this week, Fresh Thyme will be opening eight more Chicago and Indiana locations through 2015, plus many more stores throughout the Midwest — 60 by 2019! Stores are already open in Mt. Prospect, IL, and Indianapolis, IN.
