Tiki Toss - The Game Everyone Loves

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
There is always at least one person on my holiday list that completely stumps me when it comes to finding just the right present. Now that we've played Tiki Toss, I know it is the gift that everyone will love, even the person who seems to have everything. Tiki Toss is the original hook and ring game that is simply good, clean fun. Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball come in both original style and deluxe style.
Always the life of the party, Tiki Toss is described as addictive, competitive, and meditative. You can play alone, against a friend, or with the entire family. It can be set up indoors or outdoors, take it along with you and play on the go! Great for the patio, game room, dorm, workshop, cabin, and backyard. Take it along tailgating or to the campsite with accessories like camp ready straps.
The original style and the deluxe edition seem to differ in just one way...the deluxe editions of Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball include a five foot telescoping pole from which to hang the ring or basketball, whereas the original style allows you to hang the ring or basketball from an overhang. Since I really don't have an overhang that would work, I opted to install the deluxe version of both.
Tiki Toss even includes the screws for you to hang your new game. Assembly is quick and simple, hanging the games was equally as quick and simple. We decided to hang our games on the side of our very old freestanding garage which is our future barn when our new garage is built. One side of the garage is within the fenced area of our backyard, so it's the perfect spot for entertaining.
Tiki Toss features a 100% bamboo backboard (the sustainable choice) that is beautiful and sturdy. The telescoping pole features two holes on the tip where the string feeds in one side and out the other, then a small knot can be tied for an extra tight grip on the string that holds the ring or basketball.
The Free Toss Basketball features a basketball hoop with a small basketball net that simply locks into place on the backboard. The Tiki Toss Surf features a hook that locks into place in the same way. If you're installing your games outside, the extra pieces can be removed and stored during inclement weather.
It took maybe five minutes to get both games permanently installed and set up. Then my husband and I ended up hanging out in the backyard, playing both games, until it got dark outside. They are so much fun to play and although we cannot see any neighbors from our backyard, they had to have heard us laughing loudly.
Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball are perfect gifts for everyone! It's a great gift for guys, teens, college students, school-agers, retired people, that uncle who is impossible to buy for, bosses, co-workers, and even your mail carrier. There are several other designs and versions available, so you can check off everyone on your list.
We love Tiki Toss and Free Toss! We had way more fun playing, than just sitting on the couch watching another re-run on television. It got us up on our feet, moving around, laughing, and outside in the fresh air. It's a great way to get some daily exercise and have fun doing it!

My Audio Pets - Tiniest Cutest Wireless Speakers with Big Sound

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
With Valentine's Day coming up, you may be scrambling to find things for all the people you love. My Audio Pets has got you covered! These adorable wireless speakers are great for kids, teens, and adults. They fit in the palm of your hand and look up at you with big sweet eyes. You can use them individually or pair any two of them up for a true wireless stereo experience.
The collection of My Audio Pets includes adorable characters like a penguin, an owl, a frog, a bee, and many other critters. I received OwlCapella and IceIceBaby speakers and they stand just under 2" tall. Each comes with a carry cord and a charging cord. The power button is on the bottom, the speaker is on the top, and the charger slot is in the back at the bottom.
I synced them in seconds to my smartphone music and was amazed at the big crystal-clear sound I got from them! Their shape makes them very easy to carry in your pocket, or you can use the carry cord around your wrist or to attach it to a backpack or handbag. My Audio Pets was chosen as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2017 and was also named a National Parenting Products Award winner in 2017. I'm adding my stamp of approval. My Audio Pets are my favorite wireless speakers!

High 5 - Austin's Newest Family Entertainment Center #ATX

Disclosure: I was provided entertainment at no charge.
Located in the Lakeway area of Austin, Texas, you will find the newest family entertainment center called High 5. They are located at 1502 Ranch Rd 620 S. High 5 offers bowling, laser tag, and a game arcade, plus a full service restaurant, lounge and bar. High 5 owners, Scott and Jenny Emley, have created a wonderful gathering place for you to get together with friends and family of all ages.
My husband and I attended their "soft" grand opening on Saturday night, but as of today, they are open to everyone. We found they have plenty of staff on hand and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
There are both small and large gathering spots throughout the center. The bowling balls are all organized by size and color, making it simple to find exactly the bowling ball you need. Sign up for their leagues or take a bowling class!
You can grab beer, mixed drinks, or sodas at the bar. You can also choose to have dinner at the full service restaurant, with gourmet American choices like pizza and burgers.
The game arcade offers games for all ages. My husband's favorites are the racing games and the shooting games. He also enjoyed beating me at air hockey, but it was a close game!
High 5 offers redemption gaming, meaning you can earn tickets from games and turn them in for prizes. We also discovered the largest "claw" game we'd ever seen!
We arrived early to take photos without the crowds, but by the end of the night the entire center was filled with families having a wonderful time.
Their state of the art laser tag area offers viewing on the screen outside the doors. The two-story arena looks like great fun.
High 5 is also a fabulous place for private events where you can book your celebrations, corporate events, or lock-ins. They even have a private bowling area upstairs with its own bar.
There's plenty to see and do at High 5, so don't miss Austin's newest family entertainment center.

Neil Diamond New Album Release! #MelodyRoad #O2O

Disclosure: I participated in the Neil Diamond Melody Road album review program as a member of One2One Network.
I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.
When I was a little girl, I listened to my parent's play their Neil Diamond records over and over. It was only natural that I would fall in love with his music. When I was a teenager, my mom took me to a Neil Diamond concert. We sat front row balcony, hovering to the left of the stage at Neil Diamond's eye level. I don't think we've ever screamed as loud as that moment he sang "Forever in Bluejeans" and looked right at us! I've been to two other Neil Diamond concerts since then. I get all choked up whenever I hear him sing "America." Neil has sold over 125 MILLION albums worldwide and he’s been inducted into the Songwriter Hall of Fame AND the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Neil Diamond has a new album, Melody Road, which will be in stores October 21, and I've already had the pleasure of hearing the entire album. His soulful voice and beautiful words come through in every song. You are definitely going to want to preorder your copy of Melody Road now!
Songs include Melody Road, First Time, Seongah and Jimmy, Something Blue, Nothing But a Heartache, In Better Days, Ooo Do I Wanna Be Yours, Alone at the Ball, Sunny Disposition, Marry Me Now, and The Art of Love. It's an amazing collection and I truly love all the songs. My personal favorites are Melody Road and The Art of Love. The music touches my heart and takes me back to that memory of my mom and I together at that first concert. His songs are a part of my childhood and I'm so happy to have his newest songs. His one-of-a-kind voice is a gift from God! Check out Something Blue now!
