Mickey and the Roadster Racers Carnival in Mid Valley

School holidays are here! Do you and/or your kids love Mickey?

disney junior mickey mouse and the roadster racers

After more than 80 years since he was first introduced on screen, Mickey Mouse is still well-loved by children and grown-ups around the world. Even my young son grew up watching Disney shows, loved Mickey Mouse clubhouse and his friends. I find it amazing that Mickey Mouse continues to reach different generations and to teach kids good values. 
And Mickey Mouse has a new upcoming TV series: Mickey and the Roadster Racers. Disney Junior’s animated “Mickey and the Roadster Racers” is a madcap racing series that showcases Mickey and his pals – Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto – and their unique transforming vehicles as they take on humorous high-spirited races and worldwide capers. The stories are designed to impart social and emotional lessons about friendship, teamwork, optimism and good sportsmanship. 

This school holiday (if you’re around KL and not out-of-town) from 15th to 26th March 2017, have fun with the kids and visit Mickey and the Roadster Racers Carnival at Mid Valley Mega Mall, Centre Court, between 10am to 7pm

Kids can gear up to ride and race their own Roadsters through the Hot Dog Hills race course, receive their personalized Roadster’s Racers license, make their own Roadster helmets and take part in Mickey themed arts and crafts activities.

Who are the characters in the TV series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers”? 

MICKEY – He’s roadster-ready to go! 
Hot rod diggity dog! Mickey is everybody’s best friend. He’s super-friendly, optimistic, helpful, curious, adventurous, and loyal to the core. Of course, his state-of-the-art service station is just like him – it’s AWESOME! And so are his wheels! 
Mickey’s classic Toon Car is his sporty daily driver. But when it’s time for a race, the push of a button transforms his ride into… the fast-movin’ Hot Doggin’ Hot Rod! 
No matter what kind of sticky road bumps he finds along the way – during a race or around the garage – Mickey always manages to pull out of every problem. Even on the track, roadster-racing Mickey is cool and easy-going – but he’s no pushover. When the goin’ gets tough, our hero gets tougher and more determined. 
But for Mickey, the race isn’t always about the win – it’s about having fun, it’s about accomplishing something important and reaching a personal goal, and it’s about the thrill of having an adventure with the ones you care most about – your pals! 

DONALD – First in everything… that’s ME! 
Look out for the Duck! When it comes to, well, everything, Donald is determined to do the best he can do – despite all the things that get in his way…like Goofy or Pete or any of the million things that can go wrong in a single day in or out of the Garage! 
On the track, Donald’s daily ride transforms into the smooth-sailin’, wave-makin’ Cabin Cruiser. When Donald’s on the move, you’d better move it, too. Here comes the Duck! Sometimes it seems like the world is against Donald – and Donald reacts just like you expect him to – he explodes! His temper tantrums are legendary – but the Duck can’t help it. It’s the way he’s wired. And speaking of wired… 

GOOFY – Just call him “Greasy Wheels” Goof! 
He might be a goof and some road hogs might think he’s a “tool”, but Goofy loves toolin’ around in his sporty daily driver. Never too far from a wrench or tire jack, Goofy is eager to jump in and help anybody who needs his help – whether they want it or not. 
When it’s time to roadster-roll, Goofy’s ride transforms into the Turbo-
Tubster! Putt-puttin’ with the best of ‘em, the Tubster is a mean machine, and it’s clean, too, thanks to the handy shower attached on the back! Whenever the Goof works up a sweat on the track, one quick pull on the chain and it’s a goofy bath- time on the go! H’yuck! 

MINNIE – Always in first place with whatever she does! 
Warm, loving, kind to all, super-helpful, enthusiastic, extremely creative…Minnie has it all! At Mickey’s Service Station, she and Daisy run the Motor Makeover Salon, designing, painting and pin-striping everyone’s ride. 
Of course, pink is her favorite color, Minnie’s classic Bow-Car transforms into a sweet ride called Pink Lightning. On the track, it’s a blur of pink when the race is on! But don’t let the color fool you – Minnie handles her racin’ roadster like a pro, zigzagging around the competition and outdistancing everyone whenever she sees an opening. 
When Minnie’s not roadster racing, she runs a side business – Happy Helpers. If anyone from Hot Dog Hills to around the world needs help with a problem, Minnie and her partner Daisy zoooooom off to make things right again! The gals might be pet sitters one day, pet catchers the next day, or international spies, tough-talkin’ detectives, even astronauts. There’s no job too big for happy helpin’ Minnie! 

DAISY – She puts the power in Flower Power! 
Minnie’s best gal-pal is as energetic and as enthusiastic as ever! Always on the go- go-go, Daisy loves to help out her friends, on and off the track. She’s fearless and impulsive. Sometimes her enthusiasm and her desire to please goes overboard, getting her and others in trouble. Luckily, she always manages to get back on her feet. 
She also has a soft spot for flowers – and her distinctive Flower Car transforms into Snapdragon, a rip-roarin’, piston-poppin’, thunderin’ dragster! She truly puts the “petal” to the metal! When Daisy’s on the move, flowers and feathers fly!

Baby Sebamed Protective Facial Cream

How do you take care of your kids’ skin?

what-cream-to-use-on-kids-baby-skin

I’m a big skincare junkie and I sure am cautious about my son’s skin as well. He’s been experiencing rashes or prickly heat a few months ago, probably caused by dryness and sweat on his neck area. My son is very active, always busy with something, loves to cycle and play, and he’s always sweating on the forehead and neck. 

I tried to heal the rashes on his neck with antiseptic powder, calamine lotion and cream, alternate.  He didn’t really like the calamine lotion smell but I still manage to apply it when needed. The rashes disappear for a while but appear again after a few days after discontinued use of cream. So I thought if I need to apply something regularly, I’d better use a mild skincare product meant to improve his skin’s health.

I’ve gone through pharmacies and I picked Baby Sebamed Protective Facial Cream. I apply this cream twice daily, after shower, on my son’s face and neck. In just 1 day of use, I’ve seen improvement on his neck rash. We’ve been using this for 3 months now and it’s a great cream! He never had rashes on the neck (or anywhere on his head) again even with changing hot, humid or rainy weather. 

how-to-cure-skin-rashes-on-kids
This cream protects against irritation, soothes irritated skin, provides effective hydration, is safe for delicate skin and does not leave any greasy finish. I’d recommend it to parents who have babies or kids with delicate skin that is prone to redness, dryness or rash on face and neck.

Fun Laser Tag Games at Laser Warzone

Foster teamwork and cooperation among kids with this indoor activity. 
laser-warzone-logo

If you’re a fan of “How I Met Your Mother” TV series, you’ve most likely heard about laser tag several times from Barney Stinson. He’s obsessed with this sport and plays aggressively against kids in a laser tag arena. I’ve watched a few episodes (my husband loves this show but, parents, take note that this is not recommended for young kids due to some topics and content) and Barney would often mention laser tag. My fave quotes: 
“I should be out playing laser tag, being awesome.”
“A few final thoughts, don’t get married until you’re thirty. Play laser tag once a week.”

barney-how-i-met-your-mother-laser-tag-awesome
Image captured from Pinterest
I’m not surprised why Barney loves laser tag. I often see lots of kids and adults forming teams, lining up at Laser Warzone at e@Curve on weekends. It must be something fun and exciting. It’s amazing to see that there’s such a game enjoyed by both young ones and grown-ups. I learned that even corporate companies organize team-building activities with laser tag!

Laser tag is an easy game to play. If you’re familiar with paintball then laser tag is a technology-based version of that and without the pain. If you are more familiar with PC/video games that involve shooting then laser tag is an interactive version where you get to engage with your teammates and opponents on a personal level. You strategize and plan directly with other people or kids then go to battle together physically. It makes game play more fun!

Laser Warzone is a great place to play laser tag. It is well-known for friendly staff, weekend/holiday activity, birthday/corporate parties and has 3 arenas in various locations: e@Curve in Petaling Jaya, Wangsa Walk Mall in Kuala Lumpur and Gurney Plaza in Penang.  

The branch in Petaling Jaya is conveniently located at the first floor of e@Curve, just right next to The Curve shopping mall, perfect location for the entire family to hang out, shop and have dinner afterwards. Corporate events and birthday parties are often celebrated here as well. Laser Warzone has a party room where you can plan for almost any theme in mind. Boys and girls alike enjoy birthday celebrations here because they have a big room all to themselves and, of course, they can play laser tag during the celebration. Laser Warzone can assist to plan the event from concept to  activity. The party room in e@Curve has enough space for up to 100 guests.

My son had 2 birthday parties at Laser Warzone and we plan to do it here again this year. It’s great for him and his friends to hang out and play while we, parents, either wait in the party room or better yet, go around shopping! It’s in a shopping mall after all! My husband is the one in-charge of looking after him during my son’s game sessions with friends.

The suit and laser gun make a really awesome gear pack. Kids love it! No wonder Barney Stinson says it’s awesome!

laser-warzone-kids-playing-laser-tag

Each laser tag game can have up to 10 players divided into 2 teams or they can also choose to play solo, which means each player is battling against everyone. Most kids enjoy playing in teams because it involves planning and teamwork. They huddle and plan their strategy together, and it does involve more fun to engage in a battle as a gang!

This game is perfect for the entire family, well for kids around 6 years old and above, as long as they are big enough to wear the gear. Just look at this father with his daughters!

Laser tag is a great activity for kids and adults. Visit a Laser Warzone arena and try it out. After all, it’s always a good time to be awesome!

Hasbro: TRANSFORMERS 7-in- 1 Combiner Wars (Menasor) Collection Set

You haven’t seen the coolest TRANSFORMERS toy until you see this!


transformers-menasor-toy

The TRANSFORMERS is truly a timeless toy concept that evolved into movies, various merchandise, TV shows and more. With the epic TRANSFORMERS movies, it has become even more unforgettable and more loved by kids and adults of all ages and genders. How can anyone not find it cool to have vehicles that can transform into a robot?

If a vehicle that transforms into a robot is cool, wouldn’t it be awesome to have 6 cars that transform into robots and even be combined into a big one? Say hello to TRANSFORMERS Combiner Wars! My son is so lucky to have one of those bots, the incredible 7-in-1 TRANSFORMERS Combiner Wars (Menasor) Collection Pack by Hasbro Toy Malaysia.

Any child who sees the gigantic box will get excited. In fact, even my husband wanted it. Wait, even I want it! Don’t tell my son but I play with these figures when he’s sleeping, bwahahaha!

Recommended for ages 8 years old and above
Made in Vietnam
Manufactured under license from TOMY Company, Ltd.

What’s in the box:
  • 6 Figures – each one converts from robot to vehicle mode and back
  • 7 Accessories
  • 1 Poster
  • 1 Collector Card
  • 1 Instruction sheet

Who are inside the box:
  1. MotormasterTM – Motormaster punishes enemies and allies alike with the brute force of a tyrant.
  2. DragstripTM – To Dragstrip, victory means power, and second place is as good as a place on the scrap heap.
  3. Dead EndTM – He’s convinced the end of the universe is right around the corner, and he’s going out with his blasters blazing.
  4. BreakdownTM – Breakdown’s paranoia about being seen actually makes him a formidable scout.
  5. Brake-NeckTM – Brake-Neck has no respect for the rules of the road, or anything on it.
  6. BlackjackTM – This clever warrior calculates the odds and hatches his plan before moving into action.

Combine all 6 of them to form a massive, unstoppable Menasor figure!

transformers-menasor-toys


Witnessing your child’s happiness is priceless. The moment I stepped through the house door carrying this box of wonder and colour, he already got excited. He didn’t assume that it was his; he actually thought that it was mine. Haha! You can just imagine how happy and delighted he was when I told him that the toy was for him.
transformers-menasor-toy-and-boy

The 6 figures, like the bestselling TRANSFORMERS toys, are convertible from robot to vehicle and back. My son loves them in vehicle mode but he finds joy in the “transforming” function of these toys. Whether it’s a Deception or an Autobot, he just loves these vehicles!

transformers-menasor-toy-trucks

The robots in this Menasor set are characters that we haven’t seen in the movies (yet) but I think they are a kickass bunch. My favorite in this pack is Brake-Neck because of his beautiful sports car mode and his cool face. This figure takes only 11 steps to convert from vehicle to robot and back. Around 14cm tall in robot mode.

transformers-menasor-toy-yellow-car
transformers-menasor-toy-yellow-car


The biggest robot in the pack is Motormaster who converts into a truck and also forms the face of Menasor. This one takes only 10 steps to shift between modes, robot is around 20cm tall. We haven’t tried combining all of them together yet. My son is still enjoying the toys as separate figures.

transformers-menasor-toy-motor-master
transformers-menasor-toy-motormaster-truck


Dragstrip is a blue, black and yellow colour combination open-wheel racing car. This only takes 9 steps to convert. Around 13cm tall in robot mode.
transformers-menasor-toy-dragstrip
transformers-menasor-toy


The second figure that I like is Dead End, a red sports car with a yellow face. What’s not to like about the cool colour, awesome car mode and fighter robot mode? This one takes 11 steps to convert. Around 14cm tall in robot mode.

transformers-menasor-toy-dead-end
transformers-menasor-toy-dead-end


Breakdown is another racing car that comes in purple and aqua green color. He carries a red sword and has a serious face similar to Brake-Neck. This takes 12 steps to convert. Same height as Dead End and Brake-Neck at 14cm tall.

transformers-menasor-toy-breakdown
transformers-menasor-toy

The smallest one in this pack is Blackjack who’s only almost half of Motormaster. It is the fastest to convert at 7 steps. It turns into a 2-door purple sports car with cool blue highlights. Around 10cm tall in robot mode.

transformers-menasor-toy-robot
transformers-menasor-toy-car


It’s pretty amazing how a 6-year-old kid can easily play with these figures. He was able to follow most of the instructions, just needed a little bit of help with Dragstrip and Dead End. There are only 7 – 12 steps to follow in converting the cars to robots; quite fast and easy.

Let’s play TRANSFORMERS Combiner Wars! You can grab the Combiner Wars toys sets at Toys “R” Us at RM529.90

Great Experiences Ahead at Little Kingdom

You and your kids are in for a joyous adventure.
yummy-looking-cakes-at-little-kingdom

Yummy cakes! Would you believe that these are just deco?

When was the last time you visited Maju Junction or Jalan Sultan Ismail? If it was more than 3 months ago, now’s the perfect time to walk along this busy, lively street in Kuala Lumpur. Coming from Cheras, my son and I decided to take a train ride instead of driving down. Aside from it’s much faster than driving to town, my son enjoys train rides. Ah, convenience, speed and my son’s joy, a train ride to Maju Junction is perfect. Did I mention that the trip only costed RM5.20 two-way?

The trip from Cheras to Sultan Ismail station was fast, roughly 15 minutes on a Saturday morning. From the station, there’s a walkway leading directly to the entrance of Parkson Maju Junction. Very convenient. The guard is friendly and showed me the way to go up to Level 3, where an amazing experience awaits me and my little naughty boy at Little Kingdom.

A magical-themed play land boasting of 40,000 sq.ft., Parkson Edutainment’s Little Kingdom is a first-of-its-kind personalised learning edutainment park. It’s a place where kids and parents experience various realities, from fairy tales to space missions. This play land features technology games, Amazon rides, magical shows, learning workshops and beautiful classrooms that children will enjoy. 

Upon entering this kingdom, you’ll immediately feel the “magic”. Here’s my naughty boy wanting to eat that giant red mushroom.

Visitors are welcomed by cobblestone streets, miniature shops with bright signages, colourful walls and dramatic lighting.

Wanna feel like you’re in Nevada?

There are giant, adorable fairy tale books on the streets, stories like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Aladdin and the Little Racing Car. No, these are not for reading but for making the place even more magical and, I guess, for hugging! 

little-racing-car-giant-book

Little Kingdom has a magical stage where performances are held everyday. We caught a magic show performance, which kids truly enjoyed.

3. Augmented Reality Tech allows children to be transported into another world. Perfect for those who love gadget play. 


4. Indoor Sandplay Zone allows children to exercise sensory skills and creativity within a 500-sqft play area.

5. Lots of educational games and activities. The kingdom has 6 themed classrooms where everyone can experience a variety of enrichment classes such as music, aerobics, Lego lessons, arts and crafts, storytelling and more.

6. Personalised Learning Options. You can choose for your child to learn more activities such as piano, vocal, guitar, culinary arts, languages, speech, drama, ballet, martial arts or even yoga.

7. Little Kingdom encourages parent and child bonding. Parents can freely join their kids in every activity. My son’s favourite was Fantasy Driving, he’s just addicted to cars, trucks, trains or anything that runs on wheels. A great thing about this activity is that parents can join their kids in the car. Yay, I can fit!

8. Its Magical Castle is also an awesome venue for events, parties and special occasions. This hall is just like a palace ballroom where kings, queens, princes and princesses host a ball. See this armed guard and his magnificently detailed shield?

Lego Nexo Knights Fantastical Realm at Your Fingertips

lego-nexo-knights-merlok-app-on-ipad
Multi-dimensional play? Sounds cool and fun!
Lego is always exploring and enabling newer and interesting ways for parents to enjoy uniquely curated experiences with their children. As a parent, I work hard to ensure that my child engages in different types of activities and have a diversified experience, whether it’s something creative, educational or simply fun. It’s great to see that LEGO recognizes this need for children and parents. And they have recently launched this amazing multi-platform product line, the LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS.
This one is entirely new and different from other Lego collections. The LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS enables children and Lego fans to enjoy both online and offline realms while training to be the best knights of Knighton.

lego-nexo-knights-toys-beast-master-and-cards
I love the concept of multi-dimensional play. This combines the physical world with the digital, allowing all of us to immerse ourselves not just in 1 platform but also across different channels or media. Gone are the days that we only enjoy the LEGO toys that we build. With LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS, we enjoy an app (Merlok 2.0) with a virtual school (the NEXO Academy website) with animated TV series (via Cartoon Network) with comics and with the LEGO building sets. All these platforms work together to give our kids the best multi-dimensional experience that we’ve never had before! Now, LEGO is truly not just a toy…it has gone above and beyond what a toy does!
lego-nexo-knights-merlok-game

The Merlok 2.0 app is a fun game to play. My son had downloaded the game right after testing it at the Battle Zone in MidValley. This app has a special ability to scan and download as many as 170 unique NEXO Knights powers, represented as knight shields, scattered across the kingdom of Knighton.  
So let’s get started with our training! It’s very easy to join the LEGO® NEXOKNIGHTS Academy.

lego-nexo-knights-academy-online
Step 2: Activate your or your child’s Lego ID from the Activation Email sent to your email address.

Step 3: Log-in to your account and download the app.

Step 4: Start with your training and accomplish Quests! Scan shields from print ads, cards and everywhere you see Nexo Knights shields, including the TV series! Drop by MidValley Center Court until 20th March 2016 and discover a lot of scattered shields within the event area!

scan-lego-nexo-knights-shield-to-power-up


lego-nexo-knights-online-profile
lego-nexo-knights-online-game-merlok

The Academy gives you access to a lot of information such as the Nexo Knights, products, videos, latest news, events and more. My son has started his training with the Nexo Knights Academy. It’s fun and easy! Just start with a quest and every successful step earns you a shield that you can immediately scan. This is also saved in the armory and can be scanned later. You can even edit your profile with different pieces of Lego figure! 

lego-nexo-knights-building-set
Of course, my son’s LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS multi-dimensional play won’t be complete without building the Lego set. He was thrilled to fix his first Nexo Knights toys: Ultimate Robin figure that comes with full armor and 2 pieces of chicken drumstick (haha!), and Beast Master’s Chaos Chariot that comes with Nexo Knight Macy. It’s cool that this new Lego line has added a female character in the team. Macy is the princess of the realm and dedicated to protect Knighton even when it’s tough for her to prove herself to her father, the king. See, I’ve been absorbed by the story already.  

lego-nexo-knights-toys
This LEGO experience is one of the highlights of my son’s school holiday. I wish you and your family a happy and “play-full” season! Drop by MidValley Megamall soon, download the Merlok 2.0 app, join the Nexo Knights Academy, build a LEGO set and have fun!
