Giveaway & Review: VTech’s Switch & Go Dinos

This post brought to you by VTechKids. All opinions are 100% mine.

My son couldn’t wait to open and play with VTech’s new Switch & Go Dinos when it first arrived at our door. Not only was my son excited but so were my daughters and truth be told – I was also excited.

VTech’s latest electronic learning toy – Switch & Go Dinos combines two boy favorites into one toy – dinosaurs easily morph into vehicles and back again.

We were sent two Switch & Go Dinos:

  • Silver, The T-Rex Dino and
  • Horns, The Triceratops Dino

I gave my son, Silver, The T-Rex Dino. The other one, Horns, The Triceratops Dino, will be given away to one lucky Happy Clippings reader! Will you be the winner?! Be sure to enter – see GIVEAWAY details at the end of this post. ***UPDATE – GIVEAWAY is CLOSED. Winner is Shannon R. ***

The minute my son started playing with Silver, The T-Rex Dino, he was having fun.

SwitchAndGo Sliver

He was able to easily change it from car to dinosaur and back again. I knew my son would enjoy this Switch & Go Dino because he loves playing with vehicles such as cars.

A nice feature of the Switch & Go Dino is the LCD screen for customizable animation. Kids can personalize it by selecting driver faces when in vehicle form. My son likes being able to change which the driver to display. (They can also change the animated dinosaur eyes when in dinosaur form.)

The car turning into a dinosaur is a big bonus feature for my son. It’s two toys for the price of one.

My son also loves to learn. When in dinosaur mode, VTech’s Switch & Go Dinos, says fun phrases but also some educational ones. My son’s favorite – “a T-Rex can eat 500 pounds of meat in one bite!” I love that he is learning interesting dinosaur facts while playing.

My son definitely has an interactive 2-in-1 play experience with VTech’s Switch & Go Dinos. My son went further with his imaginative play to create what he calls a flying dino and flying car.

Looks it’s a flying car!

VTech’s Switch & Go Dinos would make great birthday or holiday gift for your son, grandson, nephew or friend’s son.

That Works for Me! eBook (Why I Love It Plus a GIVEAWAY)

ThatWorksForMeCoverHow would you like to win a book filled with 800 tips to help you optimize your busy life? A book feauturing the best tips from hundreds of different blogs. Talk about an amazing resource. It’s all in the eBook That Works for Me!.

If you are familiar with Happy Clippings, especially our Household Tips posts, then you know I love finding tips on being organized and cleaning. I also love to read about saving money and time management.

That is why I often participate in a weekly blog carnival called Works for Me Wednesday. In this weekly blog carnival over on We Are THAT Family, bloggers link up posts filled with their best tips. Topics can vary from self-help articles, how-to tutorials and recipes. You name it – it’s all about “what works for me (the blogger)” and hopefully it’ll work for you (the reader).

Kristen Welch, blogger of We Are THAT Family, along with Jennifer De Groot searched through the weekly Works for Me Wednesday linkup for THE BEST tips. Then they compiled and created an e-book organized into 24 categories.

I am excited to tell you Happy Clippings has a tip in this eBook under “Organization” (Tip #604) about Over-the-Door Shoe Organizers. Yay!

ThatWorksForMe-Featured

What I love about this eBook is there are topics beyond the typical cleaning and organization tips. The book has tips for Hospitality, Gift Ideas, Marriage, Travel, Being Green, the Kitchen, Crafts and much, much more. Remember – 24 categories filled with a total of 800 tips.

It is important to note you will need Wi-Fi or have Internet access to get the best experience from this book. Think of it as a fun interactive guide. You first see a list of helpful tips, recipes and tutorials. If one interests you, then you simply click on the link. It will take you directly to the blog’s post where you can read more details about it.

I’ve already clicked over to read great posts under the Time Management category. I can’t wait to click and read about various tips such as:

  • Vacation Freezer Food under the Travel category.
  • Saying “No” to “No” under the Parenting category.
  • Many of the tips on green and natural cleaners under the Cleaning category.
  • All of the Kitchen Tips.

You can purchase this eBook now. The regular price of That Works for Me! (in PDF) is $8. Use code SAVE1 and get $1 off so you pay $7. That Work for Me! is also available on Kindle for $6.99.

There is also a contest on the That Works for Me website for a gift card for house cleaning ($150 value). All you have to do is “submit a tip” to entry. Contest ends April 30, 2012.

Be sure to follow That Work for Me! on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. A portion of proceeds from every e-book goes to Mercy House.
