Giveaway - BK Crown Program - Burger King $25 Gift Card

Burger King, one of the largest fast-food chains in the nation, has released the BK Crown Program that helps kids, and their families, help support good causes. The BK Crown Program is a fully interactive Kids Meal box that features a newly redesigned Burger King Crown. The Kids Meal box features all new fun games and activities, along with a BK Crown Code to be entered at thee Burger King Website. The BK Crown Code is to be entered online and allows kids to tell Burger King what matters to them most. Burger King allows kids to use the code to vote between Wildlife Conservation Society, National Parks Conservation Association, DonorsChoose.org and Have It Your Way™ Foundation, their votes help choose which charity Burger King gives back to.

The BK Crown Program is truly interactive, from their newly designed BK Kids Crown and Box to the online website where kids get to place their votes and play more games.My siblings both had fun playing a couple of the fun games on the BK Crown page. I think involving kids to help charities is a great move on their part, and the redesigning of the crown and box only add to the greatness. I love that Burger King also offers the optional Fat-Free Milk and BK Apple Slices in their kids meals. My siblings both enjoyed their BK Crowns, box and apple slices. They both LOVE animals so they decided to vote for the Wildlife Conservation Society.

I hope you guys decide to try out the optional apple slices and fat-free milk next time you take your little ones to Burger King. They will LOVE being part of helping out a good cause. For those of you looking for a bargain, Burger King has a "BK Family Bundle" that includes a Whopper and Whopper JR Sandwich, two small fries, two small soft drinks and a BK Crown Kids Meal. It certainly is a good deal, and only available for a limited time! Want to try is out? Burger King has been generous enough to offer one of my readers a $25 Burger King BK Crown Gift Card!

Holiday Gift Guide - For Kids: Nintendo Wall Graphics & 9" Figures

I think its fair to say that we ALL have been fans of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. at one point in our lives. I lived and breathed the Super Mario Bros. game since the original Nintendo console. And yes, I still own the old cartridge games, and the console. The days of Nintendo's 8-bit Super Mario are long gone. The Super Mario franchise has been revamped, this can be seen in the NEW Super Mario Bros. video game for the Wii and all those proceeding it. Here are two great gifts for all Nintendo fanatics!

Up first is something that needs to be displayed as if it were a trophy. The Super Mario 9" Figurine is officially licensed by Nintendo and is something that will brighten anyones holiday! They are made of vinyl, 9" tall and have moveable arms and head for posing. The Super Mario 9" Figures are a great gift idea! Mario, Luigi and Yoshi are available to be purchased.

The Super Mario 9" Figures retail for $12.99 at ThinkGeek.com. We received a little Mario Figure to review and can not count how many friends have been instantly gravitated to it. I have him placed near my video game collection, rightfully next to all the Super Mario games. He get a lot of attention and enjoys being played with. Its very sturdy so you don't have to worry when little kids manhandle him. :)

Next up is truly a gift that all Super Mario fanatics would die for! Nintendo Wall Graphics are great for those who have wall space to show off! They would be wonderful in play rooms, kids bedrooms or even yours! We received the Nintendo Wall Graphics in the New Super Mario design and placed it in my younger brothers room. Its a shame I didn't take a picture, we decided to remove them for the time being until the room can be painted. They came off as easily as they went on. They don't leave sticky residue and didn't loose their stickiness. The New Super Mario design looks amazing on the wall!

The Nintendo Wall Graphics retail for $49.99 - $69.99 at ThinkGeek.com and are available in the oldschool 8-bit Super Mario Bros, the 3D-rendered NEW Super Mario Bros. or Donkey Kong. All three are completely different sets and you can set them up in whatever manner you'd like. This is a gift they will treasure!

Disclaimer: I was NOT paid for this post, however I did receive the product in question,  from the company or their representing  PR company,  free of charge in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own and I have provided a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation for my review nor was I under any obligation to give a positive review.

Holiday Gift Guide - For Men and Women: Spock Cookie Jar & Bathrobe

star trek spock bathrobe holiday gift guide thinkgeekIf your parents are anything like mine, they are Star Trek fans. Not BIG fans, like I am, but they use to watch the show in Nicaragua when they were younger and enjoyed it. My mom seems to think my infatuation with Spock was cute, but little by little she took a better liking to him. These next two ideas are great for the Star Trek fans, men or women, in your life.

Star Trek Bathrobe. Is there anything better than waking up and throwing on a Captain Kirk, Scotty, Uhura or Spock bathrobe and making a cup of coffee? I think not. We received the Spock Bathrobe, it is blue, adorable and has a Star Trek Enterprise embroidered insignia and the rank on the sleeves. It looks great and will definitely spark interest and questions from those who catch you in it :) They will ALL want to know where you got it!

The bathrobe, officially licensed by CBS, is quite long, at 5'7" it reaches halfway down my legs. The Star Trek Spock Bathrobe retails for $59.99 at ThinkGeek.com and is available in Gold (Kirk/Captain/Commander), Red (Scotty/Operations/Commander) and Blue (Spock/Sciences/Comander). There is also an Uhura Bathrobe in Red, which is shorter than the others, meant for women and retails for $39.99. This is a great example of a present for those who have everything. They are warm, soft, and wonderful to show off!

Next up is the Spock Cookie Jar. You will certainly have people asking questions about it when they see it in your kitchen! This officially licensed SStar Trek collectible is made of ceramic to hold your tasty treats. Cookies (store bought or or home made, Spock won't question it), granola bars, and other treats comfortably fit inside. The wonderful thing about it is that you can put almost anything inside, food, pet treats, crafts, money, etc.

The cookie jar is very well made. If its not hand painted, it would've fooled me. All the beautiful facial features that make Spock Spock are very well molded, from his sexy pointy ears, to his high cheek boned and wonderful eyebrows. The Spock Cookie Jar retails for $49.99 at ThinkGeek.com and needs to be under a lot of trees this Christmas! Its just one of those gifts that you can give and expect to get a "Whoah, what, really? Amazing!" from the recipient :)

Holiday Gift Guide - For Men: Multi-Color LED Flashlight & Shock Ball

thinkgeek holiday gift guide for men led multi-color flashlight
I find that men are sometimes the hardest to chose gifts for. Sure, a video game, console or big T.V. does the trick most of the times, but what about those who like the fun quirky gifts? What then? You think outside the box. My dad loves practical gifts, and gifts that will provide him entertainment, so here are two that he has been enjoying:

A Multi-color LED Flashlight with 10 different LED colors; red, green, orange, turquoise, purple, yellow, light blue and violet. The flashlight is simple to use, one click on the buttom located on the bottom and the white LED automatically comes on. At the click of a smaller black button on the side you can toggle between the 10 different LED colors AND the last two settings are flash and fade modes. The output is quite bright, a 3W and takes 3 AAA batteries.

My dad used this to light up a hanging witch on out door during Halloween. It was green and we got a lot of compliments on the scary hanging witch! He mostly uses it to go do work on the outside of the house when its dark and surprisingly enjoys it to flash in peoples face, lol. The Multi-Color LED Flashlight retails for $24.99 at ThinkGeek.com This is one practical gift any father who enjoys flashlights that actually work and don't have a yellow-tint light :)

Next up is a fun little Shock Ball. Ever play hot potato? This is a fun new way to play, without the burns... or the potato lol. The Shock Ball is a novelty toy, not meant for children under 14. From the name of it, I'm sure you guessed its purpose. The Shock Ball is meant to be used in place of a hot potato when playing hot potato. The ball doesn't want you to win, so as you pass it around to your friends, it will emit random electrical shocks. The person who holds it the most without screaming out in agonizing pain laughter (from the random shocks) is essentially the winner.

The random electrical shocks are not painful, they will most likely cause you to yell out in laughter than pain, but it is still not meant to be used by children under 14 or people with electrical devices like pace makers. My dad LOVED this gift, he has always been a practical joker, but he sure is mighty good at the game. Along with the electrical shocks, the ball lights up so make sure to play in the dark! The Shock Ball retails for $13.99 at ThinkGeek.com. GREAT. GIFT. IDEA.
