    Coming Summer Fun For Kids

    Talking about summer, I guess kids are more excited than us. Of course, we will go to beach and have vacations for summer fun. But for kids, they are much easier than us – just a toy that they can play with water, they will feel very fun and happy. Here I have some good toys suggestions for you to consider for the Summer-expecting kids.

    Pressman Hydro Strike Action Game

    Get ready to make a splash with Hydro Strike!

    In this head-to-head pinball game, you’ll need fast flipping fingers to shoot the ball into your opponent’s goal. Score and your opponent will get sprayed in the face with water! Since a sprayer is aimed at both players, strike quick when you play, or you’ll get the spray! The first player to score 5 times wins.

    Simply squeeze the hand grips to activate the flipper, and send the ball shooting down the alley toward your opponent’s target! Watch out – sprayers are aimed at both players, adding suspense and excitement to the game. Score, and your opponent will get sprayed in the face with water!

    Will you win or get wet?

    • Fast-paced pinball action for 2 players
    • Shoot the ball into your opponent’s goal, and watch them get sprayed!
    • The first player to score 5 times wins
    • Water feature adds excitement and surprise to the game
    • Recommended for ages 7 and up

    Other the water games, kids are always loving to play interactive games with you! Sharing stories and know them better!

    Stuff Happens Parent Edition

    We get it – parenting is tough.

    Is discovering your kid’s secret booger wall better or worse than a failed homework assignment that you helped with? Rank these funny and relatable parenting moments in our new Stuff Happens: Parenting Edition card game. If our Misery Index agrees with you, you get to keep the card. Correctly rank 10 scenario cards to win!

    You’re going to read some messed up stuff on these cards that can happen to the best of parents, and then rank them based on how bad they really are. Is your kid spilling juice on your laptop better or worse than your teen getting suspended? Is it worse than 2AM feedings with your baby? Rank the card, and if our Misery Index agrees with you, you get to keep it.

    This expansion can be played on its own, but if you’re ready for a diaper change, mix these babies in with any Stuff Happens deck!

    • Each unfortunate situation is ranked from 1-100 (100 being the absolute worst) using a “Misery Index”
    • Players guess where other situations rank according to their index – if you’re correct, you keep the card
    • Correctly rank 10 cards to win!
    • For 2 or more players, ages 13 and up

    Enjoy the Summer!

    Fun Toys For Easter Day!

    Hey! It is so excited that Easter Day is coming! Especially if you have little ones, because you know how important the Easter Day means to kids. So many fun games and activities are waiting for them.

    This year, do you want to surprise your kids with fun Easter toys? I think the answer is definitely yes! Making your kids and their little friends a even more special holiday with these toys, and I believe they will enjoy their playtime very much.

    The first one, I would like to introduce Jumping Jack!

    Kids will jump for joy when they play with Jumping Jack™, the world’s cutest bunny! Spin the spinner to see how many carrots you get to pick from Jack’s bunny hill. One of the carrots will make Jack jump, but it’s a different carrot every time. If he jumps on your turn, you’ll win if you catch him. Or, extra rules let every player try to catch him when he jumps. If no one catches Jack, then the player with the most carrots wins. This delightful preschool game teaches hand-eye coordination, taking turns and quick reactions. From the makers of Gooey Louie, Barbecue Party, and Pop the Pig. For ages 4 and up. 2-4 players.

    Game Contents:

    • 1 Bunny Hill
    • 1 Jumping Jack Rabbit
    • 12 Carrots
    • 1 Spinner
    • 4 Baskets
    • 1 Instruction Sheet

    The second one is Charades for Kids – Travel

    This classic game of Charades is designed especially for kids to play and enjoy! With three levels of clues, kids of all ages can participate. Each card has a clue with a picture, so no reading is required (although the combination of the picture and its corresponding word reinforces early reading skills). Younger players can act out a toothbrush, a cat or a bumble bee! Older children can read the simple words and phrases and act out actions like eating spaghetti or playing guitar! This game is great for the whole family to play together as they try to guess the charade before time runs out! For 3 or more players, ages 4 and up.

    • Smaller version of the family favorite is great for travel!
    • Fun, active game gets kids moving
    • No reading required
    • 3 Levels of play

    Game Contents:

    • 150 Charade Cards with 450 Charades
    • Sand Timer
    • Game Die
    • Complete Instructions

    The third toy I want to introduce is my favorite! Lucky Ducks

    This wacky, quacky matching game combines developmental skills for young children with the fun of a “My First Game.” Lucky Ducks offers all the benefits of memory and matching games in a format that’s easier for little fingers than cards. As a bonus, it helps kids with shape recognition and colors. Switch on the circular pond, and the ducks start swimming–the bottom side of each duck has a colored shape. Players take turns picking up a duck and looking at the color and shape; if it matches their color and shape they get to keep the duck. If it doesn’t match they put it back. The ducks continue to swim so it’s more challenging than a traditional memory game, but easy enough for even the youngest duck lovers to play. This extra challenge makes the game more fun for parents and kids to play together, with plenty of opportunities for fun and learning. For 2-4 players ages 3 and up.

    • A modern version of a traditional matching game that moves while players try to find a match
    • Simple format is easier for little fingers than cards and allows for independent gameplay
    • Reinforces key developmental skills like color matching and memory
    • More than 10 million units sold of this popular childhood game!
    • For 2-4 players, ages 3 and up

    Game Contents:

    • 1 Pond Shaped Game Unit
    • 12 Ducks
    • 1 Sticker Sheet
    • Complete Instructions
    • Requires 2 AA batteries (not included)

Being well-known for its major investments in digital marketing, social media and TV advertising, Vivid will get the full benefit of Goliath’s global marketing team.

    “The acquisition of Vivid by Goliath represents a bold new chapter in our company’s story,” said Tony Hicks, Chief Executive of Vivid Toy Group. “With Goliath’s backing, we are well supported to build a world-leading portfolio that will continue to strengthen the company’s excellent long-standing customer relationships with the world’s leading retailers.”
