Funnybone Games Array and Spec-Trix


Hi neighbors!

Here are a couple of great games for your gift giving!  They are Array and Spec-Trix from Funnybone Toys. Now, I will tell you in advance, these are not games to play in the car while traveling.  You do need room to spread out the cards with this game, but they are well worth bringing with you to play when you arrive. Also, these cards are sturdy and will hold up quite well.  They are not thin like regular cards, but are a bit thicker and should last longer.

We have played both games and while both are quite a bit of fun, the hands down favorite for us is Spec-Trix.  These games are well-made, colorful and fun!

Here is what the cards look like!
We played Array first.  it does take some thinking while playing this game.  Array is designed for 2-5 players, so we could not all play at the same time.  The girls and I played after lunch the first time.  It was fun trying to slice, splice, splatter and slam our way to be the first to play all our cards.  It was funny to see someone who had been slammed try to get even with the person who slammed them!  The whole goal is to use your cards up and stay under 100 points.  You do need a pen/pencil and a sheet of paper to keep score.  I won our first round!  Yeah!
Just started the game.

I like having a Splatter card!
Making a move.

This one grew!
Love the colors!
Spec-Trix was next on the table.  This game is a little easier, but can also be confusing trying to keep track of the colors and to use them in the proper order of the color sequence.  Just to share with you here, the children are playing this one as I am writing this.  You can also use Spec-Trix as a memory matching game and to learn colors!  WOW!  Breaking news: My son won!
Your spectrum of colors.

Just starting.  Who will win?

Someone's hand!


Funnybone Toys also has a game called CUBU.  Here are the rules:

 A little about Funnybone Toys games:

Owner Julien Sharp with her team of creative geniuses has uncovered a niche that is quickly spreading -- offering hip, museum-quality products that encourage casual entertainment that complements conversation -- no matter what your age. And since everyone appreciates a little glamour in his or her day, Funnybone Toys' three sets of card games brighten up any room. The card sets' color and design may be appreciated consciously or subconsciously but they always attract the players' senses for beauty, design and pleasure. The unanimous response when gift hunters pick up a card box is, “Wow, these are really cool!”

What's the secret behind Funnybone Toys’ meteoric rise in the tough-as-nails toy and game business? Sharp, an expert on people at their leisure, believes there is a passion for smart play for adults as well as children. All age groups are drawn to entertainment that is beautifully designed (think of every new Apple product!). Their first three card games combine a seamless blend of engaging play patterns, vibrant colors and stunning graphics. Everyone can play the games, from age 8 and up. And at $14.99, they’re priced as an affordable and beautiful gift.

These cards are very well made.

What will she play this time?

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
