Hearts of AttrAction R&R Games #Review

Having a larger family, we enjoy planning family game nights a few times a month. There are enough of us that we are pretty much always our own party. It gives everyone a purposeful way to interact together and we always end up with a room full of laughter. We also have more teenagers over than ever before and they are loving all the games we are introducing them to. We were fortunate to be introduced to R& R games and to help keep our game nights going they sent us two great games to review, Hearts of Attraction and Strike A Pose. These games have turned out to be two of the most requested games at game night!

Hearts of Attraction R& R Games

About the Game:

Hearts of AttrAction is the fun version of the original AttrAction game where skill, strategy and a little bit of luck results in a chain reaction of magnetic proportions!

The heart shaped magnets react differently from the original magnets creating new patterns of play for this popular game. Hearts of AttrAction is fun to play with anyone, anytime, anywhere! So get ready to prove just how irresistible you are. Cupid’s got nothing on you!

(Ages 14+ • 2 to 5 players • Playing time 10 minutes CONTENTS: 25 Heart shaped magnets, Red velvet bag)

Hearts of AttrAction Collage

I really thought the teenagers would think I was trying to get them to play a dating game because of the title but they were open to it and we soon found out it was nothing like a dating game at all! Hearts of AttrAction is a game that is easy to catch on to playing and everyone loved. It moves at a quick pace and the rules are relatively simple. Each player gets heart shaped magnet and when its your turn to toss yours on the table its a game to see how (or even if!) your heart will attract other magnets on the table.  The person with the most hearts at the end wins. We always end up playing several rounds of this game. Even our 8 and 10 yr olds are able to play!

Since we have started playing this game we’ve had a few teens invite their parents inside to play with us in hopes their parents will get the same game for their house too. What usually happens is they end up staying for several rounds because it is so much fun. It really has been so great to share something we enjoy and see other families come together as well.  This is one game I would recommend for any family or gathering!

We were also able to have fun with another R&R game, Strike a Pose (you will see more of the fun we had with that game in a future post). Be sure to check out the latest games, updates and news from R&R Games on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.

The Amazing Wubble Bubble Ball Review

the amazing wubble ball

The amazing Wubble Bubble Ball “looks like a bubble, plays like a ball”. After originally being introduced to the amazing Wubble Bubble Ball this summer in NY while attending BloggerBash, I couldn’t wait to get one in the hands of our kids! It’s an amazing ball that inflates up to 3 feet, made from some super-thermo-stretch-tacular stuff. It will start out small and 2 minutes later, it’s 3 feet tall.  You can catch it, kick it, squeeze it and make it fly. It really is pretty amazing. Our kids had already seen the As Seen on TV commercials and were over the moon excited when we were sent a Wubble of our very own for our review!

I had watched a few videos online and knew ahead of time that inflation could be tricky due to the self sealing valve. If you have any trouble inflating your Wubble ball, you may find this video about “How to Inflate a Wubble Ball” helpful. In fact, I recommend watching it first.

While inflation WAS the most difficult part of the process, it was worth the wait when we got to play. WE HAD A BLAST with the WUBBLE!! ( Wubble Ball inflation hack: Our batteries in the pump were a little weak so we used the pump from our air mattress and that worked beautifully.) 

Wubble Bubble Ball

kicking the wubble ballWhen you love something you have to share it right? Our kids were so excited about it that within minutes of trying it themselves,  they ran out the door, heading out to see if our neighbors friends wanted to play too. It was a a movie moment to see all the kids ( and adults) having so much fun with the Wubble.

Here is a video of the fun we had:

One thing to note Wubble Ball’s are not indestructible, but they have a lifetime replacement guarantee. It costs $6.99 to replace a Wubble under the guarantee. After several hits into sharp tree branches we got a tiny hole in ours. The kids continued to play with it for another 20 minutes until it deflated on its own. I noticed in the instructions later I could have placed a piece of duct tape on it. If I had known we were going to be playing with it outside so much I would have inflated it a little less for more strength.

Wubble has won numerous toy awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award, a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, a Mr. Dad Approved Award, a Parent’s Choice Award and the Dr. Toy Best 100 Picks Award and more! Wubble Ball is available at Target, Toys R Us and online at www.wubbleball.com.

We are getting a few of these  for Christmas presents. Who do you know that would love a Wubble Bubble Ball ?
