Syma R/C Helicopter Only $18.05 (Regularly $129.99!)



This is a tremendous deal just in time for Christmas!  Right now you can get a Syma R/C Helicopter for only $18.05 plus you’ll get free shipping on any purchase of $25 or more or with Amazon Prime!  These helicopters are normally priced at $129.99 so this deal is 85% off!  It has pretty great reviews too!  Note that all the helicopters are deeply discounted but the Yellow Syma R/C Helicopter is the cheapest!  We have one of these and even though it has taken a beating it still works great.  We’ve crashed it multiple times and I even dropped it in the dog bowl once!  There is a learning curve in trying to fly it but it’s very fun even learning to try!

Kids II Baby Einstein Count & Discover Treasure Chest Review

Treasure Chest Collage

My little toy reviewer was recently given the opportunity to try out the new KidsII Count & Discover Treasure Chest from Baby Einstein.  All in all, we loved this toy.

Its bright colors, blinking lights, and fun music keep my girl entertained for a long time.  Since receiving this toy she has played with it every day!  I mentioned already that it has music but it has peppy, upbeat music that is fun for kids but not annoying for adults.  There is a good variety to the songs it plays and that is extremely important to me!

When you insert the coins into the chest it will say the color of the coin, the shape on it, or it will count the number of coins inside.  It can speak in English, French, and Spanish.  What a fun way to introduce little ones to a new language!

The only thing we didn’t like about the toy is that it’s top heavy and won’t open fully.  Because it closes easily fingers have been pinched more than once.  I understand that there is extra weight to the top because of the technology behind the flashing lights and audio but I think this toy could be improved if the lid would open all the way.  That’s just my opinion though!  As I said before, all in all, we loved this toy and are very happy with it!
