#PlayLikeHasbro Not Quite Yet Summer...

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The weather's warm, but school's still in... it's not quite summer, but the kids know their big vacation is just around the corner. It makes for that feeling of limbo sometimes, and to be honest, I can feel it too. What better way to ward off the 'almost summertime' blues than Hasbro?!?!

This is a brand most families know and love, including ours, and recently we added three new things to our toy line-up from them.


The first, and an absolute instant favorite for everyone in the house was the Nerf Dude PerfectShot Hoops Set.


This was really easy to set up, it literally took less than (5) minutes to get it assembled and on the door.

Be sure to twist the net before you loop it, every single time!
Be sure to twist the net when you're putting it on the hooks. That's in the instructions, but if you're like me and think you can assemble without reading, you're going to growl and grunt when the net slips off of the hooks...until you see you're supposed to twist each section first. Then it holds like a champion!


The Nerf Dude PerfectShot Hoops Set is  extra awesome because it has fully adjustable, easily bendable foam covered hooks that allow you to hang it on many kinds of surfaces, inside or outside!! Seriously, you could easily wrap it around a tree branch and it would hold!! This little handy toy makes it net time, any time!


It comes with a little Nerf basketball, and my son's been on a frenzy of shooting hoops with his friend who practically lives here too. ;) They're all sweaty... like boys. :) But they're having a great time.
The second Hasbro item we've brought in the house is cute as can be, and it's a smaller sized Transformer, but the coolest thing is he's a Mr. Potato Head!! AND he's also Optimus Prime. :) 
This item sells for just under $5. That's a price that can't be beat for something that is this rocking crazy cool!


This larger sized, more traditional Optimus Prime Transformer is a 3-step changer. He turns into a semi-truck. It's easy to transform, and we think it looks great either way.


My youngest is pretty good at getting these to move into their positions with ease, and he likes to collect them and put them on display in his room. You can see it's in the shape of the semi above.


And here it is all on its own. The cab of the truck flips it upside down, and the arms tuck in to create the top.  You can't even tell that five seconds ago, it was Optimus Prime. :)  We love these, and this one is my favorite size.

The Hasbro trio is all top-of-the-line quality, as is the norm with the brand. And yes, oh yes, they were a great way to remove the doldrums that come along with waiting for the school year to end. Now we're ready to buckle down again, and get to the homework.

If you're looking for a break from the norm, I suggest you #PlayLikeHasbro 
Worked for us. :)

With the age of technology today children tends to rely on technology by means of going online and play online games. I like it when kids can enjoy their time playing toys. I like the brand of Hasbro which my son and my daughter had when they were little. Also, it's summer here in the Philippines and we are enjoying it so much! :)

How fun is this? I would love this hoop for myself.

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

Wait until they start dunking against the door and you think someone is getting hurt. #rainydays LOL! Christopher's very first Transformer was a too complicated Optimus Prime. I needed to be three steps!

I absolutely adore Hasbro. It was a big part of my childhood, so it always makes me smile to see them still creating great products so many years later.

Ms KathyKenny said...

My son would not be a fan. He hates basketball for some reason. Maybe if I get him this, he would learn to like it a bit?

Tamra Phelps said...

My nephews would love that NERF Perfect Shot, but to be honest, I love that Mr. Potato Head, lol. He sure has changed from the days of my childhood!
