In case you missed it, today is #ForceFriday! If you're not a Star Wars fan, that's probably meaningless to you, but if you are, that means today is the day that a whole new collection of Star Wars toys and merchandise were released in anticipation of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie coming to a theater near you this December!!!

Having grown up in the '80s, I've always enjoyed the Star Wars saga, but my husband, on the other hand, is a true Star Wars buff, so he's been looking forward to this day for some time now. The new merchandise was officially unleashed at 12:01am this morning, so we stayed up to check out the excitement.

I was surprised that there wasn't more of a crowd at my local Walmart store, but that just meant that we had first dibs on all of the new items as the pallets were brought out. My husband was tossing toys into the cart left and right, so I had to be the voice of reason, and set down some limits.

We ended bringing home the set of five Hot Wheels Star Wars ships pictured above, a Kylo Ren action figure (the new villain of Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and the Kylo Ren deluxe lightsaber.

Part of the Bladebuilders series, the Kylo Ren deluxe lightsaber is, by far, the coolest lightsaber we've ever owned. And yes, with three boys, we've owned more than a few... The lights and sounds simulate the movie effects, and the lightsaber extends with a flick of your wrist.

As Drew, quickly discovered, the lightsaber can be dismantled and customized. He calls the bottom portion his "dagger" and has been whirling around our living room dueling with an imaginary partner all afternoon. Little does he know... if you purchase other lightsabers in the Bladebuilders series, you have the ability to mix and match parts of them all to create wholly new lightsabers. I'm pretty sure I'm going to find some of the other Bladebuilders on his Christmas list this year.

Some stores are having a second event tomorrow morning (Saturday) at 10am. You can see if your store is participating here: In the meantime, check out the whole new Star Wars collection on! May the Force be with you...

Sooooo, in just five short weeks my kids will be heading back to school. We've had kind of a bummer of a summer so far -- LOTS of wet, rainy weather and unusually low temperatures, so I cringe just thinking about it... I mean, we've only made it to the pool once so far, and I'm absolutely NOT ready for the mad dash to purchase clothes, supplies, etc. But I've resigned myself to the inevitability of it all.

The one bright spot is that E FUN recently asked me to try out one of their new Windows 2-in-1 tablets, which means a shiny new toy for my kids to argue over play with while waiting for the rain shower of the moment to pass us by.

For under $230, the Nextbook Flexx 11 allows my entire family to stay connected, entertained, and productive with everything they want at their fingertips. They can browse the Internet, reply to emails, read books, play games from the Windows Store, watch movies, video chat, and much more, with the option to switch from a touchscreen laptop design to a standard tablet interface at the push of a button.

My kids are all about looks, so of course they went gaga over the fun backlit LED keyboard. However, I'm a little more practical, so I appreciate that the Nextbook Flexx 11 is a step up from the Nextbook 10.1 we tested back in January in almost every way -- for a very little increase in price! The Nextbook Flexx 11 boasts a larger screen, faster process, and both more system and storage memory at the everyday low price of $227.

The Nextbook Flexx 11 Tablet features include:

  • Windows 8.1 operating system (upgradable to Windows 10 later this year)
  • 11.6” 1366 x 768 IPS capacitive touch screen
  • Quad-Core Intel® AtomTM Z3735G Processor (X86, 1.8GHz)
  • 2GB DDR3L system memory; 64GB onboard storage memory
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 2.0 megapixel front and rear cameras with integrated microphone
  • microHDMI, microUSB, and microSD ports
  • Preloaded VUDU Movies and TV app; NOOK for Windows 8 app

My 9-year-old, a Miranda Sings fanatic and Girls Go Games junkie, has been putting the Nextbook Flexx 11 through its paces, and it's stood up to her heavy use thus far. She likes having the option to use it as a laptop at the table or as a tablet when she's sitting on the couch (and I like that she's finally using headphones without me nagging about it, lol). The keyboard is very easy for her to remove and reattach on her own, and the larger screen size is a really nice feature when playing games.

I have no doubt that the Nextbook Flexx 11 will transition easily to becoming more of a homework tool once school starts. It's a great choice for families with school-aged children that need a device to check email, perform Internet searches and watch YouTube videos!


I'm so thrilled to share that Windows has provided me with a Nextbook Flexx 11 Tablet to give away to one lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader!
