What I Did This Christmas…

Posted by gina

Okay. So.


First of all, I went up to my grandparents on my moms side. We go to their house every other year, and we go to dads parents every other year. It’s kinda back and forth.


So, I got a lot of cool thinks. The first was… MY OWN COMPUTER!!! Yes, this girl now has her own computer. I show it in one of my new     videos:

It’s an Asus Windows 8, epic!


What I also got, what I remember at least…

A lot of clothes, 5 notebooks (omg so cute little puppies!!!!), Reading For The Gifted Student Grade 6 (fun to me), a new backpack, lots of pretty new jewelery, make-your-own stuff kits, nail polish/manicure items, pretty much all I can remember, and that’s already a lot.


I’m back home now. Happy 8th birthday to my little cousin!


Comment what you got for Christmas!

TinkerBell DS Game

Posted by gina

The Nintendo DS is a handheld gaming system. One of the many games for the Nintendo DS is the TinkerBell DS game from Disney.

With this game, you get to play as TinkerBell and help prepare for the seasons, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. You get to customize over 100 outfits and watch Pixie Hollow transform from day to night.

You can also talk to fairies and play mini-games. When you get to a certain point, your fairy friends will have a picture of TinkerBell’s face flashing, it might mean that the mini-game can be played. You can play the mini-game any time once that happens.

I have the TinkerBell game myself. I got it at Toys’R’Us a few days ago, but it’s also available here on Amazon.

I’ll tell you a little more about the mini-games. You get to weave thread from a silk worm with Fawn, paint lady bugs with Rosetta, and catch dew drops with Silvermist.

I love the game. It has great graphics, is interesting, and lots of fun. You get to go to all the places in Pixie Hollow as you go through seasons.


Air Swimmers – Cool Gift Idea!

Posted by gina

Looking for a fun gift for your kid?

Try Air Swimmers.  There is a clown fish and a shark. They float in the air because they are filled with helium, like big balloons. You can control them with a remote control, like they were little blimps.

They look like they are swimming in the air! They cost about $30 at Amazon.

The company that makes them says there are lots of fake ones being sold that aren’t as good. Its important to get the right ones.

Users at Amazon say it’s BIG! It needs a big place to fly – but not outdoors – because the wind will carry it away – then bye-bye Air Swimmer!  One user says it has a weird attraction to the ceiling, but maybe they just didn’t know how to fly it yet.

Air Swimmers are supposed to be one of the hottest toys this Christmas season.
