My Pole-ish Horseshoes Review! Family Fun!

Hi Neighbors!

I have a really neat game for you to play for a Family Fun Night or just anytime you can get a group together. It is called My Pole-ish Horseshoes! My family thinks it's a lot of fun. Divide into two teams of two. Everyone else can watch and cheer for a team until it's their turn. You can actually get a tournament going if you have enough people. Now,you have 2 poles on bases. (The pictures will explain much more! You place a can of 12 oz. can of soda, pop, or cola. (whichever name you prefer!) on the top of the pole. Set the poles up approx. 30 ft. apart or a comfortable distance based on the age of those playing. Each team places a can on top of their pole. Then using a Frisbee the teams take turns trying to knock each others can off the pole. There is a catch though, you have to hold a can in one hand, and the other team will be guarding their base and trying to catch the Frisbee, of course while holding a can in one hand! Also if they catch the can before it hits the ground, all while holding a can in one hand. Points are based on knocking the can off and whether the other team catches the Frisbee and/or can. Sound like fun? My children thought so, and they were playing it in snow! Of course I am sure it is just as much fun without snow. Now, these are just the basic rules, I am including the complete rules below.

Rules for MPH:
  1. Place MPH poles 30 feet apart or a desired distance.

  2. Place a 12-ounce beverage can on top of each pole.

  3. Each team takes a turn throwing the Frisbee. The throwing team is the offensive team and the team catching the Frisbee is the defensive team. Team members switch back and forth with their partners every time it is their turn to throw.
  1. When throwing the Frisbee you must stand behind your pole.

  2. The defending team only has to catch the Frisbee when the throw is within one step left or right of the two people defending. If the two defending people have to jump to catch the Frisbee they don’t have to catch it. No points are awarded when the throw is out of range.

  3. Throw the Frisbee and hit nothing – but the other team catches the Frisbee – the offensive teams gets no points.

  4. Throw the Frisbee and hit nothing – but the other team drops the Frisbee – the offensive team gets a single point. Throw the Frisbee and hit the pole, and the can falls off, the offensive team gets two points. If the defensive team catches the Frisbee or the can – but not both – the offensive team gets one point. Should the defensive team catch both the Frisbee and the can, the offensive team gets no points.
  1. Throw the Frisbee and hit the can off the pole, you get three points. If the defensive team catches the can or Frisbee but not both the offensive team gets two points. If the defensive team catches both the can and Frisbee, the offensive team gets one point.

  2. If the offensive team throws the Frisbee short of the pole, the defensive team gets a penalty shot. A penalty shot allows the defensive team to take a shot from where the Frisbee landed.

The My Pole-ish Horseshoes come in a choice of the two pole colors and the base, along with a Competition Quality 9 5/8" Frisbee with the MPH logo. They are $60 plus shipping.

This is definitely a game we will be playing more of. I am sure it was designed for good weather, but the snow just adds to the fun. Recommended for teens, college age and adults, even my younger ones enjoyed playing. This would make a great picnic, or family reunion game!

Disclosure:I received no Monetary Compensation for this review. I did receive one set of My Pole-ish Horseshoes for review purposes. All quotes are taken from the website. All thoughts and opinions are mine.


I would agree about playing in warmer weather, but this looks really fun. I can imagine my kids playing with my husband! They'd all love it.

I thought this was a clever game you had devised until I got to the bottom of the review!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
