Using Kid Power For Cruising Around Fun With The PlasmaCar!

I received a PlasmaCar at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Do you sometimes wonder how your child has so much energy? I know I do! I feel like my daughter has an endless supply, where as soon as her battery level goes down, it automatically recharges! I am always looking for fun ways to entertain her, and I love play that uses that endless supply of energy. When the kiddos are all tuckered out, it's a lot easier for them to go to sleep at night and I don't know any parent who doesn't appreciate that, haha! That's why I am super excited to partner with PlasmaCar! They have the perfect toy for my child and yours!

PlasmaCar is a ride-on toy that uses the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, friction and of course all that power your child has stored inside. I really appreciate that you don't need any batteries to operate this car. You also don't have to mess around with gears or pedals. Your child can sit back on their patented safety seat and enjoy their fun ride! You can use this indoors or outdoors, but it's best (no matter where you use it), to be on a flat surface. Great for ages 3+ and up to 220 lbs! That's right, if mom and dad want to give it a go, no worries! I know I did!!

My daughter was beyond excited to try out this new toy! Upon opening the box, she even helped my hubby and I put it together. It was pretty clever of her, she knew what part to get first and where it went before I could even get the instruction booklet out! There are only 9 assembly steps and the directions are super simple. You will be up and cruising in 5 minutes! We were!

The PlasmaCaris extremely easy to use and definitely works best on a flat surface. My daughter cruised around on our kitchen floor within minutes of getting it assembled and then we had to take it outside to give it a real test run!

It worked great on the front walk, driveway, and cul-de-sac. Just by moving her hands forward and back the inertia moved her forward in the direction she wanted. You can even steer the car by moving the wheel more to the left or right. It's really quite ingenious and really does use kid power, it's so fun to watch! I couldn't help myself... after seeing all the fun my daughter was having, I had to give it a whirl!

Even though I weigh a lot more than my daughter, I sailed around with great ease. I had absolutely no problem riding it and there were no ill effects to the car after I was done riding it. All parts were securely intact and could definitely hold a lot more. PlasmaCar says it can hold up to 220 lbs!! Of course, after I tried it, my husband couldn't resist. He cruised around and gave both my daughter and me quite the giggle. He's 6 foot and looked a little squished, but he rode it and the car held him with no trouble! It really is quite the amazing toy!

The PlasmaCaris truly a fun toy, for both kids and adults, and it comes in a variety of fun colors! My daughter loves the fact that she can control, with her own power, where to go and when to stop. She has such a blast when she rides around and loves it when I catch her. Then she wants to trade places and catch me when I ride on it. It's a wonderful toy that requires your child to use their hand-eye coordination and other motor skills. It's a great way to learn direction, how to use their power and agility to move, and so much more! They say "It's fun to be a kid!", well, this is one of those times!

Personalizing Our Nursery with Lettering On The Cheap Action Words!

When we found out we were having a little boy, I knew we would be making a Batman-themed nursery as my husband is a big fan. He had his eye on a more vintage Batman theme with a cityscape, themed bedding, and some comic book action words. My husband had the idea that we should do baby action words instead of the typical POW, BAM, or ZAP from the old Batman TV series. I loved this idea and found some tutorials on how to make them with foam core. However, that would have involved a ton of coloring, cutting, and gluing for just one word. Being 32 weeks pregnant, I didn’t really have the energy to take on such a large project. That's why I was thrilled to partner with Lettering On The Cheap to create the comic book action words! This saved me so much time and they were extremely easy to apply. I love how they turned out!

Lettering On The Cheap does boat, vehicle, vinyl, wall and window lettering. They make it easy to design your own project using their simple design tool. They have many fonts, shapes, images, and even clip art to use! Another great feature is that you can even upload your own images or designs. If you need any help, their site has a lot of how-to videos for designing tips, installing, and customer support. They even offer a Goof Proof Guarantee, where they will replace either part or all of your design, if you mess up the installation. How amazing is that?!

I started out using the design tool. While they had shapes and lettering that would work for what I wanted to do, I’m used to designing in other programs where I can edit all the lines in a shape. After trying a few ideas with the design tool, I decided to design my own. Once I designed my comic book action words, I uploaded my image into the design tool and saved my project. I designed multiple actions words, but uploaded it as one piece.

I received my wall lettering quickly and they even sent some extra in case I messed up with the installation. How nice!

First, I let the wall lettering lay flat as it came rolled up and then I cut out each one so I could tape them up and play with the design on the wall. Once I felt happy with the placement, I got busy applying them to the wall!

I flipped the design up towards the tape and removed the backing paper being careful to not let the design fall against the wall.

I brought the design down and used an old credit card to squeegee the design onto the wall. I did one stroke down the center and then worked my way out to each side.

I went around the edges to make sure they were secure before pulling the plastic covering off the vinyl.

I followed the instructions from the how-to video on the Lettering On The Cheap website and had no problems at all. I only needed to go over a couple of the edges with the card again and they stuck great! These were even installed over painted wallpaper and stuck with no problem! Any wrinkles you might see in the picture are actually the wallpaper, not the vinyl. It was so easy and fun, that even my husband had to try!

I’m in love with the look of this wall and am so glad I went with this, instead of trying to make my own! It’s still something I designed, but was so much easier to install than my original plan. I’ve actually started to look into other things I may want to put up on the wall. If we hadn’t already painted the cityscape on the wall, I probably would have ordered that from Lettering On The Cheap. I’m even thinking of holiday window clings I can design; such as Halloween silhouettes or snowflakes for the winter. This was so easy to install and the look is exactly what I wanted! I’m so happy with how this turned out!

The United States Total Solar Eclipse of 2017!

Did you know that the last total solar eclipse that appeared in the United States from the Pacific to the Atlantic, was back on June 8, 1918?!

Back in 1918, the solar eclipse crossed the United States from Washington State to Florida. This was the last time the total eclipse completely crossed our nation. This year, the path of the eclipse is pretty similar and stretches from Oregon to South Carolina. The path is about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide, which means a large part of the U.S. is going to witness an amazing show of our universe in action!

When is this special day you ask? Well, get ready to mark your calendars and set your alarms for Monday, August 21, 2017!

What is a Solar Eclipse?

If you aren’t familiar with what a total solar eclipse is, explains, “A total solar eclipse is only visible from a small area on Earth. The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon’s shadow when it hits Earth. The sky becomes very dark, as if it were night. For a total eclipse to take place, the sun, moon and Earth must be in a direct line.”

Credit: Justin Ng

People are traveling far and wide to see this spectacular display, and our family is one of them! My husband loves science, space exploration and the universe in general. He has been talking about seeing the solar eclipse for the past five years and we figured now is the time to go!

Viewing Map & Simulator

Depending on where you live in the U.S., you can either see a partial or even full eclipse! Here is a picture from showing the path of where the solar eclipse will be in totality.

If you would like to see what the solar eclipse will look like where you live, check out this site my husband found. All you need to do is put in your location and you can watch a video simulating what it will look like as the moon crosses over the sun.

Be Safe

The only time it is safe to view the eclipse with the naked eye, is during totality. This is when the sun's disk is completely covered by the moon. You should NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection. By doing so, you can cause serious eye damage or blindness.

Solar Eclipse Glasses

We purchased CE & ISO 12312-2:2015 certified solar eclipse glasses on Amazon and decided on a pack of 25! This way we were able to give them out to family so everyone can watch the eclipse safely! Make sure the glasses you purchase are certified for solar eclipse viewing.

Past Solar Eclipse Viewings

If you are interested in learning about when and where you might have seen a solar eclipse in the U.S., check out this link. As you will see, the last full viewing across the United States was back in 1918. However, in other years you could have viewed this beautiful sight in a few states or islands here and there. This charts the times from 1918-1991, where the only viewings of total eclipses could have been seen on U.S. soil.

No matter where you live in the United States, you are going to see something. Whether it’s a total or partial eclipse, it’s going to be a spectacular sight you won’t want to miss! Just remember to wear the proper eye protection, so you can enjoy the awe-inspiring display safely.
