JLAB Epic Air Sport ANC headphones:
Someone in your family most likely needs a new pair of headphones. The JLAB Epic Air Sport ANC headphones are fantastic! These earbuds are sweatproof, which is super important when the weather is so hot. You can use these headphones while exercising or just while listening to a podcast or a movie. The charging case is super convenient for nightly charging or travel. Each charge gives us enough power to last the whole day (15 hours approximately). These headphones have 3 options for noise control, ANC On, ANC Off, and Be Aware (pass through outside noises). The sound quality is fantastic and the noise-canceling works quite well. Upgrade your headphones today with this well-priced option. This Amazon finds headphone is the best we have tried.
If your kids are obsessed with Mario, this new game, Super Mario 3D World and the included Bowser’s Fury game, is a great gift. You essentially get two games for the price of one! You can play this game by yourself or with your friends in person or online. While playing with friends, you want to achieve the highest score, and then earn a crown. You should see the competition between my kids and their friends. You would think these were the Olympic trials. Super Mario 3D World is just what Mario fans have been waiting for. The game is visually stunning, and there are so many levels to explore. My kids love to play Mario as a cat or turn Mario into 5 Marios, with the ability to catch oh so many more treasures. Make sure you find the 3 hidden green stars in each level, so you can move on to the next one. Bowser’s Fury is a completely separate game, where Bowser Junior and Mario partner together to remove oil from the surface of the world so they can get to new areas. The graphics are incredible and the open-ended world is fun to explore. In each area, Mario tries to find cat shines, and once he has found them all, prepare yourself for the most epic battle of all time at the Gigabell. We received a review copy of this game, in order to test it. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
My oldest son has been obsessed with Pokémon for the past 20 years, no joke. He still has his original cards and loves searching for new packs of Pokémon cards that are now really hard to find. Pokémon Shield is his new favorite game for the Nintendo Switch. You can catch, trade, and battle your Pokémon in this online game from Nintendo. This game is a perfect gift for all Pokémon fans because you can find and possibly catch 400 Pokémon in this game, including Zacian and Zamazenta, two of our favorite new Pokémon. Pokémon fans will love this game title and will enjoy the challenge of trying to catch ’em all. My son loves to try to catch Pokémon in the wild area and enjoys fighting in the max raid battles. The music in this game is just fantastic and your Pokémon fan will love it. We received a review copy of this game, in order to test it. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Nintendo Game Builder Garage:
This brand new title for the Nintendo Switch is so much fun. My kids are enjoying designing and creating their own games and then sharing them so their friends can play. Your kids might not realize it, but this game is an introduction to programming and game design. Shhh, the kids might even learn something while playing this game! There is a helpful tutorial that walks you through each lesson to help you understand how to design each game. Each lesson is clearly organized and your kids will be designing video games in no time. I really see this game as a great introduction for young kids to understand more about coding and programming. Even though this is a fairly new game, there are so many incredible games you can enjoy right now. Game Builder Garage is a great way to beat the summer brain drain. We received a review copy of this game, in order to test it. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Honeydew side sleeper pillow:
Finding a perfect pillow is like finding the holy grail. We have tried so many pillows over the years and none of them help us get a good night’s sleep. As side sleepers, most pillows do not give our shoulders very good support. The Honeydew side sleeper pillow is one of the best we have ever tried. Its unique shape contours to your shoulder and is perfect for side sleepers. You can even adjust the filling so it is the perfect softness for your head. My husband has not had any shoulder or neck pain since switching to the Honeydew pillow. If you are a side sleeper and you are tired of waking up with neck, back, or shoulder pain, you must give this pillow a try. You can try it out for free for 60 days and see if you like it, enjoy their generous money-back guarantee.
HOmeLabs Chill Pill Countertop ice machine:
The ice machine in our refrigerator makes about 10 pieces of ice a day. This does not work well for our family of 7 during the summer. We have been looking for a high-quality, fast-producing, well-priced, countertop ice machine for a long time until I stumbled on this Amazon find one day. The hOmeLabs products are known for being affordable, safe, and well designed for home use. The size of the ice pellets on this machine is adjustable. The small ones are perfect to fit in skinny drinks or water bottles. The larger size ice pellets are great for glasses of juice or soda. This machine can make up to 26 pounds of ice per day, which is more than enough for my family. Filling the water tank is super easy, and the kids can do it themselves. It even comes with its own ice scoop. Treat yourself to a perfect summer appliance today.
