New product line for Star Wars: The Last Jedi launches globally at 12:01 AM September 1

More than 20,000 retail locations worldwide will become home to

Following the global phenomenon of Force Friday in 2015, Disney and Lucasfilm today announced Find the Force, a global augmented reality (AR) event rolling out on Force Friday II (September 1) to commemorate the worldwide launch of new products inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

 

The pop-up AR treasure hunt aims to unite fans around the world in the battle against the dark side in a unique three-day event at over 20,000 retail locations across 30 countries. As fans turn up to take home new The Last Jedi products, they will have the opportunity to activate a unique augmented reality experience featuring Star Wars characters, including fan-favorites and new surprise additions from the film.

 

“Force Friday II is a major milestone in the countdown to Star Wars: The Last JediStar Wars has always championed new technology, and we are excited that augmented reality will allow fans to experience the universe in a whole new way,” says Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm.

 

From September 1-3, retailers around the world will invite fans to Find the Force by taking part in an AR treasure hunt. Here’s how it works: first, download the Star Wars App, which is your one-stop-shop for all things Star Wars (those who already have the app will need to download the latest version). Then, visit any one of 20,000 participating retail locations to find a graphic that contains the Find the Force logo. When you scan the graphic using the Star Wars App, you’ll reveal a character, who through augmented reality, will appear in the room with you. You can then take photos, record videos, and share the experience on social media. Come back each day to reveal new characters

(15 in total across the program’s three-day run). Click here for more information: www.starwars.com/findtheforce.

 

“Force Friday II puts fans right at the center of the action using augmented reality to bring our characters to life like never before. The technology theme continues in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi product line, which is our most innovative yet – we can’t wait for fans to see what’s in store.” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.

 

Fans can download the latest version of the Star Wars App (v. 2.3 or higher) beginning Aug. 24 for an early look at the new Porg characters in AR before the AR treasure hunt goes live at retail.

 

By sharing photos or videos featuring the in-store AR characters on Twitter or Instagram using #FindtheForce and #Sweepstakes throughout Force Friday II weekend, fans in select global markets can participate in a sweepstakes for the chance to win the ultimate fan experience: tickets to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere in December.

Your Child will Love LightHeaded Beds by Lifetime (Review and Giveaway)


 

I have a 6-year-old son, and lately he has been going through a phase of needing is light on to go to sleep. He can’t fall asleep unless the tv is on a timer or I leave the hall light on. The problem with this is I usually always forget to turn off the hall light when I fall asleep, and end up waking up in the middle of the night to do so. i was contacted by company LIFETIME with their really cool product called LightHeaded Beds.

I was SO excited to review one of their beds because I knew Anthony would love falling asleep to a cool image that lights up! Let me tell you all about this bed!

So, what makes this bed so different from other bed models? This one is unique! This bed comes with a backlit headboard that you can use interchangeable graphics and images. Is your child afraid of the dark? Does you child want to sleep with a nightlight or closet light on? Good news, they can fall asleep in their very own bed that has a light! This bed comes with a remote control dinner with timer, and you can set how bright you want the light to be, and how long you want it on for. Just put your child to sleep, turn on the light and you are all set.The light is an LED light and plugs right into the wall outlet. No need to worry about batteries.

I was able to review a full size Canterbury Model with choice of Image. There are 3 finishes to choose from (black, white and brown chestnut) I chose the chestnut since it would match my sons furniture he has. You can also choose to add a trundle option for an additional cost. It didn’t take long for me to get the bed once it was ordered, about 4 days. It came in 2 large boxes, and took my husband a few hours to assemble.  All you need to assemble is a screw driver. All of the other pieces are included.

One cool feature about this bed is that you can use it with a box spring or without, and no tools are needed to adjust height. I was happy to hear this since I just purchased my son a brand new mattress and box spring.

This bed comes with a graphic included, the one I received was a Dolphin image. I also ordered my son a custom image. It’s a red spider webs background with his name on it. He really loves it!! There are so many possibilities and options of different graphics. You can even customize your own with your own photos! They are super easy to slide in and out of the headboard, and even the footboard has a storage compartment for your extra ones! You will never lose them. Since your bed will arrive will arrive with a graphic the company chooses, you can take your time to browse the site for the perfect Image to order afterwords. Your bed will also come with a $20 gift coupon towards any Image purchase! There are so many varieties of images, and you can even custom make your own with your own pictures!

In conclusion, My son and I absolutely love LightHeaded Beds! This is such a great concept and will really help with children having fears of the dark. I love how you can purchase different images and even customize them. This is perfect since as your child gets older, he/she will end up liking different things and may not always like the original image you purchased.

Vitafive: Custom Gummy Vitamin Packs for Adults and Kids Review @vitafivegummies

*This post contains an affiliate link

I am not the best at remembering to take my vitamins. I dislike taking large vitamin pills, and I also dislike chewable ones because they always taste horrible. I have tried gummy vitamins however I have not found one yet that tastes good. Most have the artificial taste. I have finally found a delicious gummy vitamin that I actually look forward to taking each day.

I was recently contacted by a company called Vitafive.  What is Vitafive? Vitafive offers personalized gummy vitamin packs sent right to your door every 4 weeks. With Vitafive, your vitamins are all prepackaged into one convenient pack for each day of the week. You can take them anywhere with you, no more worrying each morning putting them in a little ziplock bag to take with you or forgetting about the bottle that is in your medicine cabinet. These are so convenient to take to work, school or even on vacation! The biggest pro? THEY TASTE AMAZING!!

The vitamins that Vitafive offers are:

  • Probiotic
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • Multivitamin
  • Calcium and D3
  • Biotin
  • Melatonin
  • Omega 3

You can customize your own vitamin packs with up to five vitamin choices. The more vitamins you add the more savings you will receive. Add a minimum of 3 gummies and you will receive free shipping. If you do not wish to customize, Vitafive offers vitamin health packs for adults and children. Adult packs start at $24 and Kids packs start at $19. Below is the price chart for customizing your own vitamin packs.

 

Great things about Vitafive:

  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian
  • Kosher & Halal
  • Made in the USA
  • Vitamins are safe from melting in temperatures of up to 140 degrees
  • Dietitian approved
  • 3rd party tested

I was able to choose 3 vitamin choices to try out and review. I picked a Multivitamin, Vitamin C and a Probiotic. A 28 day supply arrived quickly. Each daily dose is packaged and ready to take on the go! Each pack has my name on it (this is great if you are buying vitamins for different members of your family) and shows what kind of vitamins are in the package. They each also have a best by date. I love that I can keep these vitamins in my purse or even at my desk at work so I never forget to take them. The best part is they are really delicious!! They are not sticky like other gummy vitamins and they have no artificial taste. They really taste like fruit to me. I love that they are made in the USA as well. Each vitamin is a different color, so you always know which one you are taking. The children’s packs are perfect for my kids since in the mornings they can just grab a pack themselves open and eat them. So easy for kids!

 

In conclusion, these vitamins are not only super convenient with their packaging, but also delicious and very affordable !! I actually look forward to taking my vitamins each day now!

I know you will be as satisfied as I am with your new vitamin packs, and the convenience they offer, but if for some reason you aren’t, you can cancel your subscription at anytime with no hassle.

This Naipo Back Massager can be purchased from Amazon, and arrived in a box with a carry handle. Included is the massager, wall adapter, user manual and adapter for car. You just plug in the adapter of choice and you are all set. The great thing about this massager is you can use it on any chair you have! I tried it on my kitchen chairs, on my high back bar stools, on my car seat and even on my couch! It is so great that it is portable and can be used anywhere. There are 2 different massage settings and you can also use it with heat or without. I love the heat function, it really feels great with the massage.. You can lean back for a deeper massage or just rest against it for a lighter one. After the first time I used it my back felt so much better! The buttons on the side are easy to locate while you are getting your massage, in case you want to change modes. It really is a great back massager.

If you love getting massages, I would definitely say the Naipo Back Massager would be ideal for you. I love the fact that it is portable, and you can use it anywhere and on any chair you wish. The heating function is great to loosen those stiff muscles, and this massager is very comfortable to use on a daily basis.
