What’s your favorite Nintendo game? Do you let your kids play with portable gaming tablets like the new Nintendo 3DS XL?

Great Wolf Lodge New England Review

by derekwilmot on February 18, 2015

Great Wolf Lodge New EnglandMy family was provided with a one night stay at Great Wolf Lodge New England, the following opinions are my own.

Have you ever been to a Great Wolf Lodge? It’s a hotel resort with an indoor water park, video games, and experiences for families and children across the United States. We stayed for one night at Great Wolf Lodge New England and were able to experience many of the amenities of the resort.

Here’s a YouTube video that includes many of the images I took during our stay here. Highlights for me included being able to traverse the ropes course with my son, which was a huge challenge and accomplishment given my ACL repair 9 months ago.

Also, be on the lookout for Sink It! No doubt one of the best video games ever created, given that it’s the closest game I’ve ever seen to beer pong.

Great Wolf Lodge New England is a great place to stay, where the entire family can experience a lot of fun activities together as a staycation, especially if you live near one, or are only a short drive away.

Wyclef John, CES, Play.it

CES in Las Vegas is just crazy and exhausting. People everywhere, all sorts of innovation. However, some of the most exciting parts are the celebrities and parties everyone attends during the event.

I got a chance to meet Wyclef Jean and hear a performance of his new song, Divine Sorrow at the Play.it Party which I’m excited to share with you. I was so impressed with his ability to speak and sing in multiple languages and awesome talent.

Mattel BoomCo Rapid Madness Video Review

Mattel BoomCo Rapid Madness  Blaster ToyDislcosure: We were provided with a BoomCo blaster to facilitate this review. Any opinions are our own.

The Mattel BoomCo Rapid Madness is an air-powered blaster that rapidly fires darts that also have unique self-stick technology. These can be used like darts and aimed at included targets from several yards away. I know that NERF tends to be one of the most reputable brands, but these types of blasters and darts certainly have a lot of fun included.

Here’s a video I created along with my wife, highlighting the features of the BoomCo Rapid madness blaster from Mattel.

Toyota Sienna MiniVan Review

by derekwilmot on February 18, 2015

Toyota, Derek WilmotMy family and I were chosen to take part in the #SiennaDiaries campaign with Toyota. We received a Sienna mini-van to drive for 3 months and shared our experiences in the Toyota Sienna on ToyQueen.com.

We don’t presently own a minivan, it’s a little more than what our family needs on a daily basis, but we sure had a blast test driving a Toyota Sienna for 3 months.

Here’s a video that I took, highlighting what my son and wife thought of this family experience. In 3 months we drove several thousand miles, and were able to create many family memories with road trips around the North East area of the United States traveling from Massachusetts to Rhode Island, Connecticut and Washington D.C.
