To help support National Neighborhood Toy Store Day I received 2 items to review. These are examples of the types of products available in your local neighborhood toy store!
1 - Tenzy, a fast paced game using dice, speed and a bit of luck
2- Loopdedoo- A bracelet wrapping machine
We also had a blast playing Tenzy - I even won a couple of rounds :) Want to find out more? Check it out...:
