Kids Magic Set Bundle Review

2015 Holiday gift guide

Buying gifts for boys is something that I’ve found to be a challenge since my nephew was born.  I grew up with all girls, so I never know what to get him.  I want to get him something he likes, but also something he didn’t think to put on his wish list.  This year he is 7, almost 8, and I have no idea the sort of things he is into other than Minecraft.  I knitted him a hat, but what 7 year old really wants a hand knitted hat for Christmas.

So after doing some looking around and reading what other people recommend, I decided to go with a magic set.

magic set

I found this really neat set on Amazon.  It comes with a cape, a magic card deck, a magic wand, a magic wire ring, and a coin illusion box.

Here is Goose demonstrating the coin trick with a dime.

The card deck is really neat.  They are slightly larger at one end than the other, so as long as the one card you want is the only card facing that direction, and it’s near the middle of the deck, you should be able to find it. Here is a short video.

Overall, this is the perfect gift for my nephew, and I know it will make an awesome Christmas gift for any little kid.  It is definitely Goose approved.

If you would like to add this little set to your shopping list, it can be found on Amazon for about $25, the cape alone is probably worth that much, and you get all the other stuff along with it. Very good value.


Baby Marohn’s Holiday Gift Guide: Del Sol Coloring Changing Backpack Review and Giveaway

2015 Holiday gift guideChristmas is on it’s way, and fast.  I know this year I am completely unprepared, and I’ve only bought three gifts. To tell you the truth, it seems like everyone has so much that I don’t really know what to get them. I like to think outside the box, and get something that most people wouldn’t think about, and for kids, one thing I like to get for kids is stuff for school.

Now that the school year is halfway over, it seems that, even though parents try to buy things that last, the beginning of the year school stuff is starting to wear out. Backpacks are always a big hit with Goose and my sister’s kids.

Del Sol

Del Sol has come out with the cutest backpacks that I’ve seen in a LONG time.  In true fashion to Del Sol, the backpack changes color when out in the sun too.  Goose just loves that inside out of the sun, Minnie is black and white, but as soon as she goes outside, Minnie turns her normal colors, and she has secret designs hidden in the background that pop out as a surprise.

Not only are Del Sol’s backpacks SUPER cute, but they are also very comfortable to carry.  The shoulder straps, back, and handle are all padded, so that you don’t have to worry about the straps digging into your shoulders or the handle hurting your hand.


Del Sol 2015 Holiday gift guide

Goose has been able to fit quite a bit in the Del Sol backpack.  The backpack measures 15″ H x 12″ W x 4″ D.  As far as pockets and compartments, the Del Sol definitely doesn’t have the most I’ve ever seen, but how many does my 4 year old really need?  There is the main large compartment, an accessory pocket on the front, and two mesh pockets on the sides.  She honestly doesn’t need more than that, and if she did, I have a feeling things would get lost.

If Minnie Mouse is not your thing, they have Disney Princesses and a couple of Marvel characters that you can choose from.

Overall, Goose and I love this backpack, and Del Sol would like to give you all a chance to win one!!  You have until November 27th, 2015 at 11:59pm to enter.
