OgoSport Water Play Day

I was lucky enough to be able to try OgoSport's new water play toy, the OgoDisk H2O thanks to Tryazon.

Headquartered in The Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, NY, OgoSport designs award-winning toys to get kids and families to "Move. Think. Play.”

So what is an OgoDisk you ask? It's simple. 



The OgoDisk H2O is designed specifically for bouncing water balloons. I love how the disk, made of nylon-spandex and rubber lets kids use their imagination and be active. In just a few moments mine went from bouncing water balloons to pretending is was a shield. This lightweight disk flies much like a frisbee and even floats. 

Great for target practice

...and maybe even as a chew toy haha. 

The weather has spoiled two of our recent water playdate so my three boys have turned creative. Air balloons in the house with their disks!!

End of School!!

How is it May already??



On to 2nd grade N goes. "So Long First Grade. It's Been Fun. Watch Out Second Grade. Here I come!" was his shirt of choice on his last day. 

In other news, like so many other young children on the planet, Carter is obsessed with watching other families or other kids on YouTube. He told me his best friend was a boy he watches on YouTube the other day. I promptly made him this shirt.... and encouraged a new App instead of stalking random YouTube people!

Ubongo Game Time

I recently got to try out Ubongo, a fast paced spatial learning game by Thames & Kosmos, thanks to Tryazon. This is right up Nolan's alley. At school, they play ST Math on iPads and computers which isn't any numerical math but rather spatial puzzles, brain teasers, and such. He begs to do activities like ST Match at home so I'm always on the hunt for fun. He's a whiz at this stuff and way better than any 7 year old should be. He beat me in our first game!



Ubongo uses a gem stone reward system which is a huge hit with elementary school boys. Think Minecraft and Skylanders gem stones and more! You have a minute or so (hourglass timer) so solve a quick tangram puzzle and you're racing your peers. Then the puzzles reset and it all starts over for 10 fast rounds. It doesn't involve reading so although it says ages 8 and up our four year could also slowly work out puzzles and be included. The cards always change and there are two levels of difficulty so it is not a game JUST for younger kids. If you're looking for a game your child will love and you will be happy to play along with them too, this is it!
