Well, now that she has Shout Advanced, she can cook in an evening gown if she chooses to. Shout Advanced even took out grease stains that had sit for months!!!

Back to School Giveaways #4 – thinkSmart Games

thinkSmart review and giveawayBack to School Giveaways #4 – thinkSmart Games

Our next giveaway is for younger kids as they get ready for back-to-school!

thinkSmart Games are fun and educational games for Nintendo Wii and DS handheld systems designed to keep children excited and engaged while they play!

  • Crazy Machines for both Wii & DS
Think outside of the box and push the boundaries of creative thinking as you utilize random objects (anvil, rolling spheres and more!) to build a variety of increasingly complex contraptions that cause chain reactions.  Big picture thinking, big fun and big points await in the construction of Crazy Machines!
  • Cosmos Chaos for DS
When it comes to fun and educational games, nothing can compare to Cosmos Chaos! Funded by a Star Schools grant from the U.S. Department of Education and developed by PREL (Pacific Resources for Education and Learning), Cosmos Chaos! is a collaborative effort on the part of talented video game developers and respected experts in the field of educational research. The result? An exciting and challenging reading game that’s as fun as it is educational!
  • Labyrinth for DS
Based on the popular board game, Labyrinth drops players in a series of mazes where logical thinking and problem-solving skills are the only way out.  Move the walls with the stylus and discover all your treasures in the labyrinth before your opponents do!
  • Scotland Yard for DS
The chase is a-foot!  Scotland Yard is searching for Mister X in London, New York, Berlin, Paris & Amsterdam.  Deductive thinking and procedural logic are key as players aid the famous detectives in the capture of the elusive Mr. X.

For this review, I thought I would see what the resident gaming expert of the Coupon Dad household, our son Ethan, had to say about these games. He thought it was cool that I was actually wanting him to play video games. Ethan and I played all the games. There is nothing like a little friendly father/son competition. Here’s what my 12 year old son had to say:

Crazy Machines – Test your skills and knowledge in Crazy Machines where you make contraptions to complete levels. Its fun, easy, and the whole family can play.

Scotland Yard – Mr. X is at it again are you going to be the 5 detectives to catch him or you can be Mr. X and try to escape from the 5 detectives. Go to New York, London, Berlin, Paris, and Amsterdam.

Labyrinth – Make your move in this shifting Labyrinth as you try to find the treasure you seek to save your father who has been kidnapped, ummm maybe we will just let the kidnappers keep him, LOL.

Cosmos Chaos – Explore the area and find your dog who was kidnapped by robots. Along the way you will find Buddy, a friendly robot who will fight evil robots. You learn new words and definitions to help get Buddy’s voice back and find your dog.

Well done son! Other than the fact that he thinks he is a comedian!!

As a father, I am all about video games that serve a learning purpose and that just what these games do!

Back to School Giveaway #2 – Linksys Router

Linksys router giveaway

Back to School Giveaway #2 – Linksys Router

Next up, we’re giving away a Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router!

The Linksys E4200 wireless router is perfect for anyone interested in building the ultimate connected home. The E4200 is the first building block that can handle gaming consoles, HDTV streaming video, Roku boxes, eReaders, smartphones, and anything other wireless device that needs screaming connectivity.

With back to school fast approaching, now is a great time for parents to make sure their homes are well-equipped for their kids to succeed academically and maximize learning from home to school. A simple and cost-effective way to make the home an ideal learning environment is to transform the home into a learning hotspot with home wireless.

Today’s middle and high school students have grown up with mobile technology and feel most comfortable in a wireless environment for anytime/anywhere studying, interactive web research, easy collaboration and communication and parent accessibility. The wireless home learning environment also more closely aligns with how they use technology at school. The Linksys E4200 router from Cisco lets parents easily set, use and manage their own home wireless. The E4200 is also perfect for college students setting up wireless in their first home away from home.

We have a couple of years before we send our daughter off to college but when she goes you can bet I will be sending her with the Linksys E4200 router.  I have always been a fan of Linksys and  are the most compatible router in my opinion with all the different computer / high speed providers out there. Set up is always a breeze and every Linksys router I have ever owned has held up for a very long time.The E4200 is one of their top routers giving you the range and speed of Wireless-N technology as well as dual band 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHZ networks. These features make it one of the best routers for home with multiple devices connecting at the same time. This is a great for my family of six with all the devices we have going all the time at all hours of the day LOL
