Ozobot Review

I was excited (as I usually am when chosen to try out and demo a product), to be picked to host a #Tryazon party sponsored by #Ozobot. My husband is a computer programmer so anything with coding is something my family is interested in. As robots are new to my family it was fun to test out this new bot. I enjoy the tiny bot that follows the lines that either I draw or my children draw on a piece of paper using the pens that came in the starter kit.(something like this https://www.amazon.com/Ozobot-Starter-Pack-Programmable-Robot/dp/B015XJR4ME) There is more to it though, you can program your bot using different colors and color sequences. It also can be used with an app on a smartphone or tablet. We downloaded the app and it is fun to draw the lines and watch the bot follow them and watch it's light change color to that of the line. It is great for a large age range, as my 3 year old enjoys it and my 12 year old enjoys it (I enjoy it as well). I haven't had a chance to get to the programming aspect of the Ozobot yet as every time I get it out my kids swarm to use it. I think it would be a great birthday gift or even Christmas gift. Here is a special link with an offer provided by the makers for the tryazon party goers. http://get.ozobot.com/tryazon/ Here is my youtube video of my children playing on it https://youtu.be/uPyMHxg4h0g

Insta Fire Review #tryazon #instafire

On August 1st, 2016 I hosted a party to demonstrate a product that I had not heard of called Insta Fire Fire Starter, Insta Fire Charcoal Starter, also some Spice Union Smokin' Chic Rub, and  Spice Union Beef Barbeque Rub. I was selected from at Tryazon and recieved these products free to try and honestly review. The Chic rub was used on the chicken kabobs and the beef rub was used on hot dogs to try something different. I had the party at the nearby park with some neighbors and friends. I was frazzled and did not read the instructions for the Insta Fire Charcoal Starter and did not use it correctly. When some more experienced grillers took over they got the briquettes lit with the Charcoal Starter. They were not impressed by the product.
 This is not the correct way to use it. Do not open the bag you light the bag underneath the grill and briquettes not on top of them. Learn from my mistake. I did try the Insta Fire Fire Starter where you do open the bag and put the contents where you want your fire and light them. My husband and I tried the Fire Starter out prior to the party as I had read it can be lit on water. We used a large width container and put water in it then the Insta Fire Fire Starter on to of the water. The Insta Fire lit, but did not stay lit for very long. 
 This is the picture you can see the small flames. We figured it didn't stay lit very long because the contents needed to stay together and be as dispersed. We were correct and when we put it in a smaller width container it stayed lit for longer. I have a video on my Facebook account also on Youtube, here is the video link https://youtu.be/bMskUlOsnZg
I would use the Insta Fire Fire Starter again and the claims are correct it does stay lit in wind and on top of water/snow. The Spice Union Rubs were not bad, the Chic Rub was not the favorite however the beef one was good on the hot dogs the kids liked it.Thanks to Tryazon http://www.tryazon.com/ , Insta-Fire https://www.instafire.com/ , and Spice Union http://www.spice-union.com/ for the chance to try these products.

Disney Store Play Dates

I have only called the Fashion Show Mall Disney Store for their play date hours, if you live closer to anyone you can call and ask their times as they are sadly not posted on the website. The Outlet Mall South on Las Vegas Blvd will hand out the wristbands if you ask a cast member for them and they do it any time of the day. This play date times are subject to change (but usually are correct) and only for this week, they change on Sundays.

Tuesday is at 2:30 PM
Wednesday the play day time is Noon (this is the day a new wristband is giving out for the week)
Thursday is at 12:30 PM
Friday is at 2:00 PM
Saturday is at 2:00 PM

Microsoft has classes that are free, they are also at the Fashion Show Mall. Here is their link of events
