Looking for Kids Toys Online

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Buying toys for younger children can be that little bit easier when you shop online. One of the great things about buying online is that there are so many different ways to search for the perfect item. You can search by type of toy, age group and a number of other categories. For many people, this is a much easier option than being faced with row after row of kids toys at a store (especially if said kids are in tow!) Whether you get it online or from local market, choosing the right toys for your child is very importance for his or her cognitive and mental growth.With a few simple and easy steps, you would be able to pick the appropriate toys for your little child that too without any difficulty.

Look for the multiuse toys that are durable and simple to play. You can find branded kid’s toys online that won’t demand costly batteries. Add some Barbie dolls, Disney toys, puzzles, brainteasers; wooden blocks in your kids toy box. Puzzles and brainteasers help in developing the learning and reasoning ability. Moreover, it’s always good to choose simple yet learning toys to help your child engage in the best way.

Look for the toys that encourage your kid to learn something new. Pick some smart learning toys for kids for the grownup kids, especially above three years. Add scrabble, math table games, and many other toys that help in the mental growth.

Such games also help a child to learn good and knowledgeable things in his or her growing years that really help in the future. What a child learns in the early learning days, he or she never forgets. So, try to engage you child in some productive games, you can get learning kid’s toys online.

Look for the toys that promote problem solving abilities, they are best for the kids above 6 years. For a young child you can also opt for games that develop hand-to-eye coordination, muscle development, etc. In addition to this, while buying kid’s toys online, always consider the age of your child.

For toddlers and small children, choose the safe toys, make sure they are made up of good material that won’t harm your child’ health even if he or she take it in mouth. Usually, small kids have a habit of taking anything in the mouth. Parents have to be little cautions if their child is under three years of age. Just an advice – do not pick toys that come with small pieces as these small pieces could be swallowed by your child.

Some Ideas for NERF Games You Can Play with Your Friends

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

NERF wars are great fun. HOwever after a while of shooting anyone and everyone, you might find yourself looking for something a little more challenging. So fear not, we have come up with some short and fun games to spice up your NERF wars (and feel free to check out this article for more NERF war games)

While this is not a comprehensive list, this compilation will give you a fairly good idea of what is possible with a few NERF guns and a little imagination.

TEAM DEATHMATCH

This is the classic team game of elimination. Split yourselves into two teams. Each player is given three hits before they find themselves out of the game – usually you do something like putting 3 handkerchiefs in your belt and lose one each time you are hit.

There are various rules for what to do after each hit. We like to have a respawn point, video game style, where you have to go after each hit to drop your handkerchief and start again.

Other versions have the hit player slowly count out loud to 15 and yell “clear” before they are allowed to re-join.

There are many variations on this basic game, so knock yourself out

MINNESOTA VIP

This game is a variant on the classic elimination game. Each team will select a VIP who will be marked accordingly using a brightly coloured hat, jackete, etc. If the VIP is tagged, the game is over, so protect your VIP.

Non-VIP players have infinite lives but when they are hit they must stay still for 15 seconds or return to a respawn area to rejoin..

This type of battle works best with set boundaries and in an area that is semi-open so that the VIP cannot simply hide.

CAPTURE THE FLAG

Capture the Flag is exactly what you would expect, NERFed-up twist on the classic attack and defend team game.

Each team has a flag, each positioned at either end of the playing area. Each team must defend their own flag while attempting to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it back to their base to win.

To defend your banner, you may shoot oncoming attackers who will then be forced to to respawn. Some variations have people return to their home base to respawn, but we found this just reinforced their base and moved the respawn point to the middle of the playing area instead.

TREASURE HUNT

This is a variation on capture the flag in that there is only one flag to capture and neither team knows where it is!

The referee hides the object somewhere in the playing area, so neither team knows where it is. The aim is for the teams to get it back to their home base.

HUNGER GAMES

This is a twist on any of the above games and if you’ve seen the movie or read the book, then you know how to play the game.

To start off, nobody has any weapons. All the blasters, ammo are either placed in a pile or positioned around the playing area.

Then, on a given signal, all players will charge into the fray of whatever game you are playing and retrieve whatever they can grab without getting tagged.

We like to play a rule that you can only carry one blaster and whenever you are tagged you must drop it and all your ammo before returning to your spawn point. This is a great way of evening things up if some of your players are less well armed than others!

These are just a few games you can play with your friends and a few handy NERF guns, there are countless more, so get out there and happy NERFing!
