Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Funko Pops coming in April!

I am so very happy that one of my all time favorite movies will now also have Funko Pops! I have loved the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory since I was five years old.  When I was little I wanted to get everlasting  gobstoppers to give to the poor and to have a Oompa Loompa for a friend. Plus, who would not want to take a ride in the Wonkavator with Willy Wonka?  Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory also has the best ending ever, makes me smile every time!

Wonka: Charlie, Don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted.

Charlie: What happen?

Wonka: He lived happily ever after!

I really can’t wait for the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Funko Pops out!!! When they do I will do a review! 🙂

Jackpot Candles

Got this lovely Jackpot Candle and Amazon.com for $24.99

This would make a great Christmas gift for tweens, teens and adults. Inside each candle is a ring, necklace or earrings worth $15 to $5,000. You can also pick your ring size if you would like to get a ring candle. The candle is 100% soy and the smells great. You can find out the value of your jewelry with the appraisal code sticker, found on the jewelry. Just go to the Jackpot candles website to enter your code.

I got the Christmas (necklace) candle for my Mother and she loves it. Makes the house smell like a Christmas tree lot. I got myself the Banana nut bread (necklace) and it makes me want to bake every time I smell it! 🙂

I found the Jackpot Candle website after I got my candles from Amazon. If anyone would like to get Jackpot Candles, the two best places to get them are Amazon.com and Jackpot Candles website.

Shopkins Shoppies

Shopkins Popette Shoppies Doll

Shopkins now have cute little dolls . I got this doll at Target for ($14.99).

Her name is Popette and she is one of five Shopkins Shoppies. The doll has a popcorn theme and comes with two exclusive shopkins Polly Popcorn and Bowl-Inda Popcorn, one fashion bag, one brush, one VIP card and one doll stand. Popette is six inches tall.

I love her hair with her popcorn kernel headband, it’s nicely detailed! Her headband is sewn into her head and her hair has a stiff spongy like texture to it. Popette’s blue lace popcorn kernel corset does not come off, however her skirt has elastic and can come off. I love hear shoes!! What you don’t see in the pictures is the heels of her shoes are little popcorn buckets. Popette’s shoes can also come off and is very easy to put back on. It is safe to say everything will stay in place when your kids are enjoying play time with her!

The doll stand is a clear small flat disc with a peg and the Shopkins logo on it. The doll has a small hole in her left shoe so she can be placed on stand. Popette can stand on the doll stand with on problem.

The only two things I do not like about this doll is her hairbrush and purse. The hairbrush you can’t really use, because her hair is stiff and it would get tangled in all her lovely little curls. Who would want to mess up that cute little up do? Her purse is a all red and made to look like a bag of popcorn. I wish they added a bit more color to it then just having it be all red. The purse would go better with her outfit if it did. None the less they both make nice shopkins and your kids can give them names because I don’t think they come with one.

Thank you for taking time to read my toy review and I hope everyone has a good day!

LEGO Dimensions

Lego Dimensions Starter Pack ($99.99)

I was at Gamestop and the cashier said this game maybe the must have game of the year. I must agree!!! Something about seeing your favorite movie or cartoon character turned into a lego, just makes this game so much more fun! You must put the portal together before you can even start playing the game. Parents and kids could have some fun family time while making wonderful memories that last a lifetime, building  Lego Dimensions together! I would suggest a storage bin for all the Lego pieces so you don’t lose any. I don’t know how you would play the game if you lost any Lego parts. Besides that one small thing, I just love the game and give it a A++++++++ 🙂

Thank you for taking time to read my toy review and I hope everyone has a good day!
