The summer of 2010 will go on record as one of the wettest summers on The Avenue. Rain, rain and more rain. Resulting in a rice paddy in the backyard and lots of indoor playtime. I really try to limit the amount of TV we watch during the day, an educational video here and there and some PBS on the DVR before nap time.
I had to wrack my brain for some creative playtime during a time when I relied heavily on the outdoors for amusement. There were days when I just wanted to send them outside in the pouring rain and let them have at it in the muddy backyard. I quickly came to my senses when I realized the amount of clean up involved once they were allowed back inside.
Luckily, I was provided an opportunity to review these Light-Up Marble Racers by Skullduggery. Light-Up Marble Racers combine the racing excitement of mini-toy sports cars and the classic amusement of marbles to create a fun new toy for boys and girls 3 years of age and older. Kids customize their Marble Racers with themed, easy to use, crack & peel racing decals, race their creations on standard tracks, and then watch as the flashing LED marble rolls to keep pace with their speeding car. There are 6 different Marble Racers to choose from: Police Racer, Fire Racer, Cats’ Eye Racer, Cyclone Racer, Confetti Racer, and Volcano Racer.
The flashing lights were a big hit and the kids spent hours racing the cars in the darkest rooms of the house. TOF loved to crash the cars to make them light up. He did need a little help applying the stickers but that still qualified as a craft activity in my book. A dual purpose toy with lots of potential for creativity. My sanity was yet again saved! Thank you Skullduggery, you're my hero.
You can buy Light-Up Marble Racers for $7.99 each at CVS locations, ToysRUs or online here. But for my faithful readers, I just happen to have a set of all 6 racers to giveaway.
