#Review: Birthday In A Box-Tomas Party Kit

My Grandson just celebrated his 2nd birthday this December. As any toddler would be, he was thrilled with the candles, presents, and attention. His Mom and Dad got him things 'that go', think trucks, cars, trains, because his room is full of those things and he likes them a ton.

Apparently one of the things my Grandson absolutely loves right now is anything Tomas the Tank. That made his Grandma or Nanee as he calls me, one happy camper.

You see, Birthday In A Box  had just sent me a pinata and of course it was Tomas the Tank. What a great idea for boy parties or girl parties too! Don't you think?

What I wanted to do is give him the pinata for his birthday so that candy or small toys could be filled in it and given away as treats for the party goers. That would have been so easy to do as there is a built in hole in the back to easily fill.

However, I did not get it in time for his birthday. No matter though, his Mom has other ideas just to hang it in his room for him to enjoy. The nice thing about that is she can do that easily too as it came with a sturdy plastic hanger built right in. I am sure that it is meant to it can be put high in a tree or a long pole, but we are improvising here.

My Grandson is going to also love the strings that hang off of Tomas. Any Tomas the Tank fan knows this is not part of Tomas but I know he will love batting at the strings for awhile before he pulls them completely off.

I do recommend that you remove the strings all together if you are going to let a young toddler just play with this. It could potentially be a choking hazard if they stuffed the strings in their mouth. We certainly would not want that!

I just know my Grandson is going to love this as much as I do. It is well made and I think a good item to include for all your kid's 'on the go' celebrations. Even though he did not get it for his birthday, Christmas is coming and that will be good enough for him!

  • Size: 19" L x 8" W x 10"H;
  • Includes 12 pull-strings
  • Matching, colors, number, and face

  1. It's cute, and I know a few people who would love to whack Thomas until he breaks apart. Ha! Personally, I like Thomas a lot.

  2. Isn't this wonderful! I got this one time for my grandson and I loved it. Very informative Post and thanks for sharing.

Hickies Shoe Lacing System #Review #LifeWithoutLaces @usfg

Have you ever had a problem keeping your shoe laces tied? I have this problem all of the time and it drives me nutty. I work on my feet all day and inevitably, my shoe laces come undone and I am tripping over them. Even double tying them does not help. Alas, I found the perfect solution in a little gem called Hickies! I know the name sounds funny but these little plastic "ties" pack a wallop.

All I had to do was take out my existing shoe laces and then replace each one with the plastic "tie" into each hole. It was seriously easy! The system allows the user to put the "laces" in different ways too. I used the regular fit but I could have chosen to use a looser or tighter fit.
Check out this video that shows how easy it really is. HICKIES LACING SYSTEM-REGULAR FIT

As you can see, my Hickies are red. I also received a gray pair but wanted to use the red. They actually come in all sorts of fun colors to fit the users style. Kids can use them in their shoes t…
