This was a gift my nephew got from his grandma and grandpa. I thought it was the funniest thing! He brought it over to our house one weekend when we had to watch him, and he just took it right out of his back pack. It’s a portable ping pong set. It’s so easy to manuever around and to set up too. He just loves it and the kids had a great time playing with it.
Now, my kids want to get one and I think even my husband does too. Me and him played a few games and it was a great time. We were laughing so hard and it was a great night and weekend to spend with the family. I realized we need more game nights like this. I’m not going to make the kids play with us, but every once in a while it’s nice to put the electronics down and spend more time with the family.
So maybe I’m too old to play drinking games like Quarters or Thumper. I’m willing to accept that because I’d rather sip a drink than chug it! Here’s a “grown-up” version that’s educational – and, well – lots of fun. A great gift for the host.
Yes, I said I want Bucky Balls – get your mind out of the gutter! The Bucky Balls Magnetic Game is really cool and would be a great thing for me to mess with when I need a break from work.
Each set contains 216 powerful rare earth magnets that can be shaped, molded, torn apart and snapped together in UNLIMITED WAYS. Make sculptures, puzzles, patterns, shapes, stick stuff to the fridge, the possibilities are endless!
So I’m still on the fence for a new game system. What should I get. A Wii or a PS3? I’ve been a loyal PlayStation fan since it first came out. I don’t have a Blu Ray DVD player yet so the PS3 really appeals to me but on the other hand the Wii Fit sounds like a good way to burn a few pounds while being entertained. I’m expecting to see some post holiday sales out there so I need a good reason to swing from one side of the fence to the other. Anyone got a reason?
The lure of the store sales got to me. I couldn’t resist going out to see what I could find. I was able to find a few items that I hadn’t thought of. I’m still going to do most of my shopping online but I was pleasantly surprised that the stores weren’t too chaotic for me. Most of the stores I went into were steady but not over crowded. Maybe the black Friday madness has passed and more level heads have prevailed. I still feel that the best deals will be found online!
