Buzzle Ball | The New Puzzle Challenge!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 26, 2014 · 0 comments

I've loved puzzle games for as long as I can remember. I don't recall when I got my first Rubik's Cube, I do remember getting a Rubik's Magic for Christmas when I was 8 years old... I loved that thing and played with it frequently -- until I wore the wires out.

My 11-year-old son is very much the same, and he's always loved any type of game or device that challenges you to solve some a puzzle. So when Walmart asked if any of my kids would be interested in trying out the Buzzle Ball, I took one look and knew he'd have a ball with it (no pun intended, lol).

The Buzzle Ball is similar to the Rubik's Cube in that you twist it, trying to align certain colors, but that's where the similarity ends. The Buzzle Ball is obviously round, but it also adds a ring around the outside, adding another dimensional challenge. The pieces twist in all directions, making figuring out how to align them difficult to say the least.

In fact, we're still attempting to solve it a week later! I mixed the Buzzle Ball up for my son after we first received it, and apparently I did a very thorough job on it, because my husband, my son and I've all tried it on and off to no avail. We've all come very close, but those rings seriously throw a wrench into the mix!

But honestly, that's what we love most about the Buzzle Ball. It's a fun little puzzle game that's ultra portable, very challenging, which stimulates and engages the mind, and you can pick it up and put it down at will. Add in the fact that it's made in the USA, and it's definitely a product that I feel good about purchasing for my kids.

The Buzzle Ball will be available in Walmart stores this month priced at $19.97!

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!


This is no ordinary fan -- obviously. In fact, did you even realize that it IS a fan?

This is the new Dyson Air Multiplier Table Fan, and while you'll definitely have to pay a good amount for this revolutionary technology, there are some very valid reasons why you should give it some consideration when making your next fan purchase:

  • Notice there are NO blades -- The Dyson Air Multiplier technology does not require blades to generate a steady stream of air. We don't use traditional fans around our children because of the dangerous, fast-spinning blades. When I was younger, I leaned back over one of those old fans with the metal blades. It immediately sucked my long hair up in it, pulling out a good section of it, so while I learned the hard way, we've chosen not to expose our children to them at all.
  • It's super easy to clean -- After a few days of use, traditional fan blades and the fan casing become caked with dust, fibers, and pollen. Getting them clean is a major ordeal, but with the Air Multiplier, you can just easily wipe it clean with a damp cloth. This is especially important for households with allergy sufferers.
  • It uses a dimmer switch -- Traditional fans usually only have 3-4 speed settings, but the Dyson Air Multiplier allows you to set your own perfect amount of air flow by turning a dial.
  • You can easily tilt it with the touch-tilt feature -- Box fans don't tilt at all, and directional fans can become loose over time, making adjusting them difficult. The Dyson Air Multiplier has a touch-tilt feature that makes directing the air flow simple and easy.

I know some of you that use a fan at night to help you sleep are probably wondering if it's silent. Well, it's definitely quieter than a traditional fan, but it still provides a good amount of white noise that will help put you drift off to sleep.

We've been thoroughly happy with our Dyson Air Multiplier Fan. Besides being very futuristic-looking and a great conversation starter, it does a great job cooling off a room in a safe manner that's very important to this mom of five.

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting several 24-hour giveaways throughout the day to give you plenty of chances to win!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.


My three-year-old daughter has been asking to see the "Chicken Mucks" movie since she first saw the trailers several months ago. I have fond memories of watching the Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon on Saturday mornings when I was little, and of course I loved the Chipettes, so we were both thrilled when the Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel arrived on our doorstep last week.

The look on her face was priceless when I handed her the double DVD pack, and she insisted on watching it right away. Since my older boys were on Spring Break, we decided to hold a mid-day family movie session, and we had a blast. We're getting to the stage in our family where it's hard to find movies that will appeal to me and my husband, while still appealing to all of the kids, and this movie totally fits the bill.

Sure Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel can be a bit corny at times, but it has some great teachable moments, and the music will have you singing along -- which coincidentally you'll be able to do all. the. time. with "The Squeak Along" bonus disc. Ask me how I know, LOL.

If you're looking for a family-friendly film to share with your kids, this is a great choice! Plus you can continue the good times when you visit Fox Family Flicks for More Munk Mayhem.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download so that you can buy it now, and three lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will win the Double DVD Pack that includes "The Squeak Along" Bonus Disc!

To enter, tell me if you were an Alvin and the Chipmunks fan back when you were a kid.
