CUPONK And Girl Talk Game Review & Giveaway

Contest is now closed, congratulations to Jenny (comment #11)!

Spending time with family is important which is why I love Hasbro’s Family Game Night concept. Hasbro sent two games for me to review, CUPONK and Girl Talk Sparkle Spots. The box also contained some extras to keep your family healthy during the holidays.

CUPONK is a lot of fun and addictive. The object is to sink your ball into the cup and light it up. If you are successful, you will hear the sweet sounds of victory. If you miss, your friends get the chance to one-up you. There are no boundaries, your entire home is a legitimate playing field. You can bounce the ball off of walls, furniture, the floor, etc. (don’t worry parents, it’s a plastic ping-pong style ball and won’t cause damage).

CUPONK comes in three themed cups with unique graphics, lights, sounds, accessories and plastic balls. Choose from Gorillanator, El Campeon, or Let it R.I.P. Retail price is $14.99. The game is for ages 9+, but I think even younger kids will enjoy it. Also, it requires just one player so your kid can become a pro before playing it with his or her friends!

I remember playing Girl Talk growing up and it was a blast! I’m glad to see it’s still on the market but updated. I received the Girl Talk: Sparkle Spots game. This game retails for around $12.99. Basically, players select a “challenge card” from four categories: Act It, Spill It, Say It, and Do It. Players must perform the challenges for the entire group. A designated judge for each round picks a winner for “Best Performance”, “Silliest Performance” and “Most Creative Performance”. The winner of each round will collect a colorful bracelet to wear. This game is for ages 8+ and is best for groups of 3-4 girls. Talk about FUN, especially during sleepovers!

In addition to the games, my package also included: Emergen-C 1,000 mg Vitamin C packets, an Arm & Hammer Kid’s Spinbrush My Way, Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer, and a Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller.

Emergen-C flavored fizzy drink mixes offer a fast, fun and enjoyable way to keep you feeling good. Each packet provides 24 nutrients including 1000 mg of vitamin C, zinc, quercetin and antioxidants to support your immune system and promote overall health. I received a box of Cranberry Pomegranate and have been using them to keep my immune system healthy since we’ve been traveling! The packets conveniently slip right into your purse, suitcase or diaper bag.

I am a faithful Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer with Aloe user and was thrilled to see a 8 oz bottle included in my packet. I keep a bottle in my car and diaper bag, so I can always combat germs! Most hand sanitizers make my skin dry, but the aloe really makes a difference. Purell kills 99.99% of most common germs that may cause illness. It leaves hands feeling refreshed without a sticky residue.

An Arm & Hammer Kid’s Spinbrush My Way was also included. This is the first and only customizable battery toothbrush, which makes brushing fun! It comes with 140+ stickers so your daughter can personalize it. The on/off switch is a purple gem. Also, statistics prove that kids brush 38% longer with a Spinbrush battery powered toothbrush than with a manual brush! This promotes healthy brushing, reduces plaque and massages gums. Includes 2 replaceable AAA batteries. MSRP is $6.99. This is a perfect stocking stuffer for girls ages 3 to 12!

The final item is a new 3M Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller. This roller applies permanent adhesive precisely and smoothly to paper, cardboard and other surfaces. Unlike messy liquid glues, the dot roller adheres cleanly to surfaces without leaving behind messy strings of glue that can damage cardmaking, scrapbooking and other paper craft projects. Refill cartridges are one piece and drop easily into the dispenser, allowing for quick loading. This retails for $7.99, refill cartridges are $6.99.

NOW TO THE PART YOU ARE REALLY HERE FOR – THE GIVEAWAY! One lucky reader will receive everything I mentioned above, a package worth around $50!
