Girls’ Gift Idea: GoldieBlox Playsets

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 20, 2015 · 0 comments

I've heard wonderful things about the GoldieBlox line of toys, but I haven't purchased any for my girls because I worried that they were on the verge of being too old for them. But when Walmart asked if I was interested in trying out the Goldie Blox and the Dunk Tank set, I figured my 9-year-old, Addie, might enjoy checking it out -- and if it was too young for her, we'd donate it.

If you're not familiar with them, GoldieBlox toys are designed to get girls building with fun and colorful sets that tap into STEM-based learning.

The GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank set, specifically, is a problem-solving kit. Goldie needs to find a way to get her dog, Nacho, clean. However, Nacho hates water and actually likes being dirty. As kids read along, they construct a dunk tank and learn about hinges and levers in the process.

GoldieBlox sets are designed for ages 4-9. Obviously, kids at the younger end of the age range are going to need some assistance reading and building the sets, but older children should be able to complete the set unassisted. Addie sat down and read the book and constructed the dunk tank unassisted in about 15 minutes.

While she truly loved the set and played with the completed dunk tank for quite awhile after building it, unfortunately, the toy hasn't had much staying power in our house. I haven't seen her play with it once since she built it over a week ago, so I think I was right about these toys perhaps being a bit too young for her.

However, I would wholeheartedly recommend them for a younger child, as they really do hit the mark in making building fun and engaging. I noticed on the GoldieBlox website that they have a new open-ended building set (GoldieBlox and the Builder's Survival Kit) that's targeted for ages 7-12, so I think this might be a better fit for my girls.

GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank can be found at Walmart and on for $19.99. It received a Gold Seal for the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award!

Gift Idea For Baby: Pinwheel Bedding Set from Walmart

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 18, 2015 · 0 comments

I can vividly recall leaving the doctor's office the day of my first-ever ultrasound and telling my husband, "I really think the doctor was wrong when she said we're having a girl. I know it's a boy!" He, of course, thought I'd lost my mind, but we'd have to wait another 4.5 months to see if my feeling was true. In the meantime, I told everyone to buy me neutral clothing in yellows and greens, and I picked out bedding in the same colors just to be safe.

Though my mom passed along the message, on the day of my baby shower I opened gift after gift of totally adorable pink outfits. So when, two weeks before I was due, I happened to find a cute little blue outfit on clearance from Valentine's Day, I bought it to take with us to the hospital just in case...

To make a long story short, it was another two years and two more babies before I got the chance to use all of those frilly pink outfits. Sure enough, we were blessed with a sweet baby boy, and he had one outfit to his name. Thankfully our friends and family members came to the rescue with lot of little boy outfits, but I was even more thankful that I stood my ground on the yellow and green bedding -- the same bedding that I used for all five of my kids!

However, if I'd known for sure that we were having a girl, I'm certain I would have picked out a bedding set like this one from Pinwheel. I love the bright, cheery colors and sweet little birds showcased in the Sweet Tweet pattern, and it would have made such a fun starting point for decorating a little girl's room!

And the really fabulous part? The Pinwheel Sweet Tweet 3-Piece Crib Bedding Set is on rollback right now for just $24.99 (reg. $59.98) -- with FREE shipping! And there are lots more patterns to choose from for boys, girls, and even a few neutral, with most being on rollback, making them a super budget-friendly gift idea.

By the way, my mother's intuition was right on for the gender of my four other babies, as well... Did you have a strong feeling one way or the other?

Gifting Ideas: Walmart’s Chosen By Kids Toys

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 15, 2015 · 1 comment

Christmas is just around the corner, so it's time to finish up all of that last-minute shopping! If you're still at a loss for a few gift ideas, the Walmart Chosen By Kids list is a fantastic place to start.

Yeah, I know a lot of stores have gift guides and/or top toys lists, but Walmart really takes it to the next level with the Chosen By Kids list. This list is actually compiled by bringing together 1,000 kids ages 18 months to 10 years old and allowing them to play with them as they would at home. Meanwhile, researchers observe how they interact with them and get direct feedback on what they love and what they don't.

All of this information is then compiled to create the Walmart Chosen By Kids list! I appreciate that it's a simple and concise way to get a quick look at what kids really want for Christmas, especially since it's easy to shop by gender and age.

While some of these toys are currently out of stock (after all, we are getting down to the wire!), there are many that you can actually order online right now with FREE store pickup today. I mean, how convenient is that?!

The toys that made my kids' Christmas lists:

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven -- okay, so technically my girls didn't ask for this, but after the great Easy Bake Oven success of 2015, I think they're going to LOVE this! You can bet I'll be trying to figure out how to make my own homemade mixes, as we did with the Easy Bake Oven. I'll be sure to share if we can perfect it!

Shopkins Scoops Ice Cream Truck Playset -- my 9-year-old is currently obsessed with Shopkins, so nothing would make her happier than to find this cute little play set under the tree. It includes two exclusive figures, but Walmart also has a ton of other Shopkins multi-packs available to coordinate with this set.

Candy Craft Chocolate Pen -- when we reviewed this item back in August, I predicted that it was going to be a hot toy this season! While it does take a bit of finagling, my girls loved playing with this chocolate pen, and I'm hoping to share a DIY for the chocolate refills soon!

Hot Wheels Terrain Twister -- my 7-year-old is going to love this r/c all-terrain vehicle! It's looks plenty rugged enough to keep up with his rough and tumble style of play, and I'm pretty sure that my big kid husband is looking forward to playing with it, as well!

Did any of the Chosen By Kids toys make your kids' Christmas lists?

Simplify Your Holiday Shopping With Walmart Store Pickup

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 9, 2015 · 0 comments

This time of year, I'm all about getting into a store, getting what I need, and getting back out as quickly as possible. Actually, that's my M.O. year round but most especially during the holidays...

I'd much rather do my shopping online, but that means loads of boxes showing up on my doorstep -- boxes that my kids (some of whom still believe in Santa Claus) are begging to open. So I can either hope that the delivery man shows up before they get home from school, or I have to come up with some excuse as to why they can't open a package.

This is why I love Walmart store pickup! I can order online and have my package shipped directly to my local store for FREE. When my package arrives, I'll receive both an email and a text message letting me know that I can pick up my package. Which means that I can pick up my packages the next time I need to pick up more milk and bread -- so convenient!

How Walmart Store Pickup Works

I recently ordered a pair of the Emma jeggings shown above with Walmart store pickup. I picked them up, along with the cute blanket scarf, on a quick grocery trip. Simple and easy!

By the way, they are an incredible value for the low price of $16.88! I've received SO many compliments on them... My friends were stunned when I told them they were from Walmart.

Anyhow, if you look at the circled area below, this is where you look when shopping online to see if an item is available for store pickup.

Simply add the item to your shopping cart, select your local store for pickup, and continue through the checkout process. In some cases, if your item is sold in stores, it will be available for pickup the same day -- which is a totally great way to avoid the crowd.

Where To Pickup Your Items At Walmart

My store just completely refreshed their pickup area, so it's pretty hard to miss now. Just look for the bright orange color and the bold "Pickup Here" signage. Give the clerk your name or order number, and he or she will promptly retrieve your package from the storage area.

Note that this is typically a different location from the Customer Service desk, which will be a dark blue color. If in doubt, I'm sure a Walmart greeter will be able to point you in the correct direction.

Have you tried Walmart Pickup yet? Or do you plan to try it this holiday season?
