A light up yo-yo and activity book are also included in the box and will provide hours of fun! Finally, a hobo bag to carry all these goodies around. The contents of this box would easily retail for over $45, but they have it available for only $22.99! Each box contains 4-6 items that your little princess is sure to love. The box also turns into a castle so there is no waste.

Here is what was included in this month’s box:

Cinderella T-Shirt: Some of the boxes contain apparel. When you sign up for the box you can let them know what size your child is. I am so happy that offers bigger sizes. My daughter is a size 10 so they sent a Disney brand size 10/12 which fits her perfectly.

Cinderella Hobo Bag: Little girls love purses! This hobo bag is perfect for your little princess to carry all of her most important items with her.

Money Bank: An adorable money bank that has the princesses pictured all around the bank. Perfect bank for my daughter to save her spare change.

Have your children seen the hit Nick series Mysticons? If they love it as much as my kids do, they will love the new line of actions figures that have been released!

Introducing Mysticons, a new genre-defining series about four girls from different walks of life who are transformed into legendary warriors. After discovering a powerful mystical tome, the fearless foursome – Arkayna, Zarya, Em, and Piper – are drawn together by a prophecy to battle evil and protect the realm. Watch as these unexpected heroes transform into oath-bonded warriors and undertake a mythic quest to save their world.

Mysticons is an action series rich in story and mythology, with and epic and original plot about urban fantasy. With real relationships, distinct personalities, and ALREADY strong, confident, smart, witty, and funny characters, Mysticons focuses on the representation of girls’ strength, power, and courage on the television screen.


Check out the awesome action figures below that are  now available at Toys R Us, Amazon and Walmart.

Piper loves fun, pranks and is the comic relief of the group. She’s grown up with Zarya in the Undercity. She’s an elf, naturally acrobatic and uses her ninja-like skills as the Mysticon Striker to make the most of her fiery hoop weapons. You’ll hear her fierce battle cry before you see her!


Arkayna is honorable, determined and idealistic. She’s a princess, but packs some serious punch. As a Mysticon she is transformed into the powerful Dragon Mage, wielding a magical staff to defend the realm, and her friends from dark forces.

Zarya is tough, wily, and a fierce protector of her ‘family’ of street kids. She acts as a big sister figure to Piper. As a Mysticon, she becomes the Ranger, battling the baddies with her magic bow and sharp aim. Her pet, Choko, a big eared creature called a foz is always by her side to lend a paw to the Mysticons.


Em is smart, empathetic and innovative and the engineer of the group. She is a dwarf who left home and grew up with Arkayna as the Royal griffin handler, and as her BFF. She transforms into the Mysticon Knight. Her magical weapons are a unicorn crested shield, and sword.



My 9 year old daughter was able to choose one of the action figures for review. She picked out her favorite from the show, Em. She loves Em for many reasons, but her favorite reason is because she using a unicorn crested shield. She comes with the shield as well as her sword and griffin. She is excited to collect them all and play!


Each of the action figures are completely posable and moveable. You can move their hands, legs, knees bend, elbows bend, hands move and twist and arms move. It is fun to move and pose them. Retail price is $14.99.

These are the perfect action figures for any little girl who loves the show. Collect them all now! These would also make great holiday/birthday gifts.

My kids ages 9 and 6 love playing with their toy light sabers and toy swords. I knew they would go nuts over Glow Battle. They were very excited to open the box when it arrived. The set I received  includes 10 Weapons of Light, 10 LED Bracelets and 8 marker lights. Colors are green and blue.  The Weapons of Light are made out of foam, so your child will not get hurt.



The game instructions are simple. Choose where you want to play (we played in the backyard at nighttime), choose your team color and teammates, turn on your weapon of light and your wristband to a solid color, place your color markers on the ground and make a square for your regen station, and then let the fun begin! If you get hit you must go back to your regen station and change your wristband to flashing mode. If you get hit a second time you are out of the game. If you knock all of your opponents out you win!  It is such a fun game for the kids to play at night or during the day. My kids have been asking nonstop to play this outside in the evening with their friends. They are having so much fun, and I am so glad it is keeping them active.


Here are the options for purchasing:

The full retail price is $59.90.  Right now the kits are all on Kickstarter and below are the kits and pledge amounts for the kits:
  • $25 – starter kit (includes 4 Weapons of Light, 2 LED Bracelets, 2 Marker Lights, all stretch goals, 100% money back guarantee)
