Simple to play with clear instructions and a role for everyone, you simply pick a card and try to describe to card using only one syllable words. If a player uses a word longer than one syllable, they get hit with the inflatable 'No Stick' by another player.

Pixicade Pets is a great way to get kids involved in technology. Kids are excited to be able to draw, train and play with a pet of their creation in the Pixicade world. I love the incorporation of technology and art. Everyone loved being able to see their pets come to life on screen. In addition, kids were able to draw their pet's treats, toys and home. After that, they were able to play with their pet and build a world. Pixicade Pets encourages use of kid's imagination and creativity while fostering an interest in technology. This is a great tool for kids aged 5-15 and can be used at home, in a school setting or during extracurriculars.

Homefree Cookies are an absolutely delicious allergy friendly cookie. I was wary of a cookie that was vegan, non-gmo, no rice, dairy free, egg free, nut free, peanut free, gluten free and whole grain that could still taste like a cookie! Homefree cookies not only check all the boxes for allergy safety, but actually taste like a cookie. While the texture is a little dry, the taste is there. These small cookies are easily munchable and sweet. The different flavors are all comparable to other cookies of the same flavor. If i wasn't told that these were allergy-friendly cookies, I don't think I every would have known. Homefree cookies make great treats for school or other allergy-friendly events. Made in the USA in a Certified B Corporation and Non-GMO facility, Homefree cookies are a brand you can also feel good about buying.

Eversea Organic Omega-3 Fruit Drops are a great way to get your daily DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids without fish! Eversea's supplements are made from algae which prevents the killing of fish and is better for the environment.
My child and I loved that these are gummies and tasted like fruit, making them easy to take. These are free of fishy flavors and smells since they are fish free. We both take our Eversea Drops every morning and they are a great way to start the day. I also felt good knowing Eversea Organic Fruit Drops are non-GMO. The only downside is that the supplements have to be refrigerated and have a fairy short shelf life which prevents me from buying in bulk!
