Sweet Suite At Home Recap & Swag Unboxing @thetoyinsider #Sweetsuiteathome #sponsored

8/10/20
This was my first year attending Sweet Suite, a toy convention for bloggers, content creators and influencers to check out the hottest toys for the upcoming holiday season.   

It was virtual this year, due to the virus, but that didn't stop the biggest night of play from being an amazing event!  Thank you to the Toy Insider for sending us a Sweet Suite Swag Box.


The virtual environment was very impressive with booths for each brand.  You could use the floor plan to navigate or walk around and explore.  Each booth had information about their toy offerings as well as Zoom demonstrations. 

I was able to make a few individual appointments to speak one-on-one with toy reps as well as group demonstrations.  My nine year old daughter zoomed along with me as she was super excited to see all the new toys!

The Toy Insider

Just Play

There were so many brands to meet with and toys to see, that it was really like standing in a huge toy store not sure where to look first.  We didn't have a chance to get to every booth, but we got lots of great ideas for our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!    Keep reading to see our Sweet Suite at Home Swag unboxing.

Here were a few of our favorites:

Adventure Academy:  Online Learning for kids ages 8-13

online learning ages 8 to 13

My 9 year old loved how you can make your own avatar, interact with other kids, and complete quests!  I love that it covers so many skills and that it has great safety features to put parents' minds at ease.  This is so relevant right now with kids having to stay home and attend school virtually.  Thank you to Adventure Academy for providing us a full year of play through your giveaway!


Adventure Academy is an educational massively multiplayer online game (MMO) for elementary- and middle-school-age children. It features thousands of enjoyable learning activities that are discovered in an interactive virtual world where the more you explore, the more you learn.

7/6/20
Thank you to Team Click & Universal Pictures for this Trolls World Tour sponsored post which contains affiliate links.





Are you looking for activities to keep your kids busy this summer?  We received a fun package with Trolls World Tour Chalk Art activities to celebrate the release of Trolls World Tour on Blu-ray/DVD/4K today.  We hope it will inspire your kids to draw their favorite Trolls characters!

Our Trolls World Tour Summer fun Chalk Art kit included: 


  • Trolls World Tour Outdoor Sidewalk Chalk set: sidewalk chalk, small stencils, and decals inside a cute Trolls World Tour bucket.  
  • Trolls World Tour extra-large stencils of Poppy, tiny Diamond, and Queen Barb
  • Trolls World Tour Activity Kit book 
  • Trolls World Tour Dance Party Edition




My girls loved making Trolls World Tour Chalk Art!  The extra-large stencils were super easy to use.  They were also happy that the stencils included their top three favorite Trolls World Tour characters!  You can use the stencils or freestyle and make them as elaborate as you wish.

We absolutely loved the Trolls World Tour Dance Party Edition!  The dance party mode shows you all the fun steps and gives you the words to the lyrics so you can dance and sing along.

The new characters are great and the music is so fun your kids will want to watch it over and over again!  There are many hilarious and quirky moments as well as some great messages about acceptance, working together, and friendship.


Trolls World Tour at The Grove
 


In celebration of TROLLS WORLD TOUR, breakout star "Tiny Diamond" visited The Grove in Los Angeles over the weekend in a unique, social distancing-compliant way!* 

*All guests were required to wear masks and maintain their social distance. 



Designer and illustrator Keith Kaminski created a 15 foot, 3D chalk illustration of the delightful character and debuted the installation at the center of The Grove.  The fun and interactive photo opp was a hit for both kids and parents alike!


Trolls World Tour Dance Party Edition




TROLLS WORLD TOUR is currently available on Digital and arrives on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on July 7!
