X-bet Ceramic Magnets Review

About X-bet Ceramic Magnets
Ceramic Magnets are perfect for glass gems, mirrors, for making refrigerator magnets, bottle cap magnets, small signs, magnetic buttons, and more others. Ceramic magnets have high resistance to demagnetization, corrosion & oxidation. These are receptive to most adhesives including hot glue, E6000, Goop, Bond 527, Liquid Nails, 2 part epoxies and more.

My Experience
These are nice strong magnets. These have lots of uses. I plan on using them to make refrigerator magnet crafts with my kids. I like that they can be used with many different adhesives, so I can use what I have on hand and don't need to buy something special. This year we are going to be doing some homeschooling and I can see us using these in science experiments too. They did leave a few black marks on my fridge, but they washed off fairly easily. I'd recommend cleaning each one before it's used. Overall, I like all the different uses these have for our family.

Oak Leaf Oval Wall Hooks Review

About Oak Leaf Oval Wall Hooks
Each hanger is constructed of polished stainless steel, and the back is made of high quality bamboo. It is made with strong 3M adhesive which provides extra strength and durability. Every hook can hold up to 4.5 pounds. It can be used on a variety of surfaces, including paint, glasses, wood, ceramic tile, gypsum, etc.

My Experience
With a house full of four kids we are always needing more places to hang things. These hooks are very nice. The brushed metal and bamboo looks sleek and modern. I like that these use adhesive to attach to the wall meaning that there aren't any tools required to install these. Aside from if you wan them all hung in a row I would recommend a level. Because each hook is individually mounted they can be hung at multiple heights too. This is perfect for us with kids of all different ages. Side by side there is slight variation in the wood tones. I plan on hanging them in separate rooms so this won't be an issue. I also expected the post to be a little more angled. But the rubber ring does a good job of keeping items from slipping off. These are not removable so be certain you have them placed exactly where you want them! Overall, I'm happy with these hooks, especially because now my kids don't have a reason for their coats and towels to be on the floor.

Washi Masking Tape Review

About United Tapes Decorative Craft Washi Masking Tape
You will find aesthetically pleasing and fun designs within the main theme including dots, stripes, stars, arrows, and geometric shapes. Colors included are red, orange, pink, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, and white. United Tapes products are sticky but also very easy to peel off and reapply. They can be reapplied many times before they start to lose their adhesive properties. Don't hesitate to use on walls; they will leave no residue behind if you choose to remove them. Go crazy decorating anything and everything with these washi tapes. They are perfect for calendars, planners, journals, envelopes, folders, or whatever your heart desires.

My Experience
This set of washi tape comes in 12 fun colors and patterns. They are easy to apply and reapply to many items. The tape is flexible enough to wrap around pencils, edges of folders or gift packages. With back to school quickly approaching these are perfect for personalizing school items. Just by wrapping a little tape around pencils, scissors, folders and glue bottles they can easily be distinguished form all the other kids supplies. This would even work at home for multiple kids and hopefully reduces the arguing over whose items are whose. Unless you need a perfect straight edge, I didn't even need to use scissors to cut it. Overall, this tape is good for many crafts and adds a pop of color to otherwise mundane items.

Luco Wooden Bricks Review

About Luco Wooden Bricks
A fun an educational wooden bricks set in four unique interlocking shapes that will stay intact once formed, allowing kids to create a variety of different structures, with limitless possibilities. The durable and eco-friendly bricks come in bright colors and natural wood  providing a playful mix and is the perfect way to teach children about sustainability. 
Luco Bricks provides children with the tools to explore their imagination and enhance their creativity while developing and honing their architectural and fine motor skills. Luco toy bricks will spark your child’s imagination and foster creativity as they play with this truly innovative set.
With Luco Bricks your architectural adventure is about to begin.

Our Experience
We have three boys and a baby girl. Toy blocks are important and we have had all kinds, including Lego and Mega-Blocks. So, when my wife saw wood blocks that interconnect, she got them right away.
These blocks are from Luco Toys and are simply called, Luco Blocks. There are 65 pieces in a set and you can choose to get them as colorful pieces or natural wood. We opted for the colored set.
The set contains four types of blocks; a cross (+), a straight piece, a long H and a short H (like a Capital I). The pieces fit snuggly together and can be moved without being forced. The wood isn’t too hard but they feel solid. The first project we built was a robot to battle the Mega-Block robot. (With the Mega-Blocks, they only build a tower, a wall or the robot example on the bag.) It stayed together really well, the 11 month old toppled the Mega-bot. L
The eco-friendly box contained: 18 Long H, 12 Short H, 13 Crosses and 22 Planks (straight pieces).
Here are some of the things we like about Luco Blocks:
These are nice blocks. There are only four shapes, so it was really easy for the 4yo to grasp the ways to connect them and just started right away.
Don’t fall over/apart when Lil’ Sister hits the ‘construction project, Daddy’. All other blocks are just begging to be knocked over. Our 4yo believes this is a personal attack on his creative process. (Man, they are cute.)
They are not too big and all the pieces are uniform so, clean up (which includes a thorough count BTW) would go fast if we were allowed to disassemble them after they are done playing.
My wife and I love that these toys are made from Rubber wood. Those trees used to be burned after they it could no longer provide Natural rubber. Making amazing toys is a better option.
Other things to consider about Luco Blocks:
These are inside toys! Rubber wood will warp and rot if they get wet for a while outside.
There are not enough pieces. I wish we could have bought a case of these things. They are great, but we had to limit the size of creations to make sure all the kids can play. (It’s still really new, so, if one has them out, they all gather around.)
Which leads me to… they are expensive. These are nicely made, perfectly machined and eco-friendly. However, they are packaged and marketed so they are like the other expensive from Europe. (The kind that you want to get your kids so they do not grow up to be dullards that never grow up to become engineers or architects.) (I just had to get them real Thomas Wooden trains and sets too, granted they have lasted three boys and will be played with by our daughter. They still cost many hundreds of dollars.)
Rubber wood comes from tropical Rubber Trees that have to be shipped to be manufactured. Rubber Trees are susceptible to fungi and insects and are treated chemically treated with Arsenic.
We all really liked the blocks and would give them 3.5 out 5 stars.
