#MelAndNikkiReview

Go! Go! Cory Carson toys are all amazing and they have all made playtime so much more fun. Since Nikki is a huge fan of this amazing series on Netflix, she reenacts her favorite scenes with her favorite characters. Each toy and playset is designed with learning in the forefront as kids can hear phrases and melodies. Also the imaginative play options are endless. I see Nikki flourish during playtime by using these toys and creativity.

“Cory is just like me! He loves adventure and learning new things. I love playing with all the Cory Carson toys.” – Nikki, Age 6

Nikki gives us a glimpse at the Go! Go! Cory Carson O’Tool’s Construction Site in her latest Nikki Talk YouTube video. She also let’s us know her rating. Make sure to click the video below to hear her insightful thoughts. 🙂

Nikki’s rating shatters our rating scale and it is no surprise since she is a HUGE Cory Carson fan. However, these toys are so lovable that even if your child has not seen the series they can still enjoy playtime with them all.

#MelAndNikkiReview

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate Corkscrew Tower has been an ultimate favorite in our home. Once we assembled it, it was off to the races daily! There are so many great features and it offers hours of fun for all the kiddies.

Race Car

The race car has an on/off switch and you can hear songs, fun phrases and sounds. You can push the face button to hear them and the light will flash with sounds. There is also an action button on the side which will activate the vehicle’s mechanical feature and hear fun sounds.

Of course the fun sounds doesn’t end with the race car as you can place it on the Ultimate Corkscrew Tower to hear melodies and more.

Spiral Tower

The main attraction is the spiral tower that you can either have it as a tower or have two side-by-side ramps. You can decide how you want the race to go. Our go-to has been the spiral tower as Nikki loves being able to reach the top and watch the race car speed all the way down.

You can place the Race Car or any SmartPoint vehicle (each sold separately) on any of the playset’s five SmartPoint locations to trigger fun sounds, song or phrases.

Nikki demonstrates how it works and gives her rating in the latest YouTube video. We might be launching this as a new segment of our blog called, Nikki Talk. 😉

It offers very cool features such as the LED button; talk button to hear the dino or pilot talk; sound effects to hear the cool sound effects; searchlight; launch activator; propeller activator and motion sensor.

#MelAndNikkiReview

KidiZoom Creator Cam is the must have product of the year! The reasons are endless as we have been loving it since the moment it arrived in our home. Nikki shrieked in excitement and couldn’t wait to give the KidiZoom into action.

Here are Nikki’s highlights of why she loves the KidiZoom Creator Cam and why it will be the hottest product of the year.

Creative Videos

The options and backgrounds available to do the videos provides the landscape of creativity. Nikki loved creating her own videos and mixing them up for her series of “Nikki Talk.” Her favorites are the Award Show (she is always winning many awards), the dinosaur (she loves pretending to be outrunning one), and News Report (she loves keeping everyone informed on the Nikki latest).

As a parent I love this feature as it offers so much and to see my child create and grow is amazing. Each video Nikki creates is better than the next as she gets more creative with each one. Nikki has been comfortable sharing her videos online which is perfectly fine as we get to enjoy them together as a family. It provides us with great entertainment and created by our little one.

High Quality Photos

We love capturing photos and Nikki is not shy to smile for the camera. Now she has her very own with a selfie stick included to take all her special moments on her own time. Nikki loves selecting the different borders available for her photos. We must mention that she also enjoys taking unexpecting photos of us and then we laugh when we look back at them. It has given us the opportunity to create some fun memories together.

Games

There are three built-in games that you can play which are Cake Master, River Cat and Bee Mission. Nikki’s favorite is Bee Mission and if she isn’t creating videos or snapping photos; then she will be playing Bee Mission and collecting as much honey as possible. How sweet! 😉

Easy to Operate

At first you may wonder how your child or you will navigate all the amazing features that the KidiZoom Creator Cam offers. However, no need to fear as they are easy to grasp and before you know it, your child will have everything memorized. Nikki now shows us every single feature and how to make everything work. It amazes me how quickly kids can pick everything up. All you need is set up the basics and watch them shine like the star that they are.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this product 10 million stars out of 5! “This is the best camera ever! It is so much fun and I love looking back to see what I created by myself. I get so proud that I can do something all on my own and be my own star.” – Nikki. Age 6.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Adriana saw the puppy and her eyes immediately glowed with pure happiness and she was in awe seeing Bailey interact with her. Nikki showed all the amazing features to her younger cousin to which had Adriana excited to play.

The feature that had Adriana the best was the Babble feature as she loved having Bailey copy all her words. Nikki’s favourite feature is the music mode as she loved singing along. My favourite feature is the love that brought into the lives of the little ones. Seeing both children interact and engage with Bailey was amazing and truly warmed my heart.
