Courtesy of MomSelect, I was able to recently host a Hexbug Halloween party to spotlight some of the latest offering in the Hex Bug world! These items include, the limited edition HEXBUG Nano Halloween Zombie bugs (retail at $9.99 each)! These bugs are really neat and come ready to gift in their own little coffin shaped packaging. They also have a removable exoskeleton that glows in the dark! Excellent offering as a fun gift and party favor prizes!
We also were sent several of the Habitat sets (retail at $29.99 each) from their glow in the dark Hexbug Nano line as well as HexBugs from the Galielo Collection (retail at $7.99 each). These sets take playing with the Hexbugs to completely different level! Children have lots of fun putting together multiple sets weaving in and out of places to make a really huge track that lights up in places they see fit! With the track sets the mixing things up and the reoccurring playtime factor is huge in prompting constructing in all sorts of new ways to play!
I’m usually not a fan of battery operated toys but these have won me over! These little bugs take batteries which are called Power Cells. And these batteries do last for quite a long time. We’ve had had HexBugs in our home since Easter and their batteries are still working without needing replaced. Though when you do, note that power cells are very affordable at 4.99 for a two pack and are very easy to install.
My own children and friends of our families children really loved playing with these toys and had a blast with all the great Hexbug Nano things we received for our 2011 Halloween Party! Nothing but a good time ensued and everyone is really enjoying all the Hexbug goodies thanks to Mommy Parties and Hexbug giving us the opportunity to promote and review these great toys. I’m sure most if not all of the children that took home habitats and Hexbugs of their very own will be adding more to their Christmas list for 2011 and letting all of their friends know about these fantastically fun toys!
If you are personally thinking about Christmas, keep in mind that HexBugs would be a fun little toy to start collecting for kids of all ages preferably recommend for ages 3 and up. What’s neat too is that included with each bug you purchase is a code in which the owner can register their bug online to learn science and play fun games! Gotta love toys that are not only fun but educational too! Plus, they make great stocking stuffers! Hexbugs are available at major retailers nationwide and at www.hexbug.com

I love Summer for numerous reasons and one of the biggest reasons are because of the celebrations that bring friends and family closer together such as those pool parties, BBQ’s and holidays such as Memorial Day, Fourth of July and so on.
Every party whether big or little feels that much more special and fun if you can put together a special invitation for your guest.

We had a Zhu Zhu Pets Royal Wedding play-date party this week. The timing couldn’t have been better since we all know that there’s been quite a buzz in itself of the coming together of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton. And this is fun way for kids to take part and have fun with all things royal in their own little Zhu Universe.
To begin festivities, my daughter excitedly dressed Princess Snowcup and Prince Dashington for the wedding festivities that were being held at the royal Zhu Castle! She also brought many of her stuffed animals as well as her other Zhu Zhu pets to take part in the big celebration! We would have loved to hold festivities outdoors but the weather just wasn’t in our favor.
Despite the weather, Princess Snowcup arrived at the castle just in time and after the two were married they were able to dance in the Zhu Ballroom! I have to admit that watching the little hamsters dance about was really cute! My daughter giggled in delight in watching too!
Following the ceremony we had a reception in which we served up coconut peanut butter and ginger cream cookies served along with a royal tea. The goodies were absolutely perfect for for any type of party especially that with royalty involved. The party was a hit and I guarantee that more royal events are ahead in Snowcup and Dashingtons future in our home.
