Wooden Toys Similar to Jenga

My niece in Canada told me about Jenga. She said it was one of their favorite games to play. I went to the toy store and see if they have it. Yes, they selling it but i didn’t buy because of the price. For me Php899 is a huge amount and I thought there are other important things to buy that I needed most.

My nephew here celebrated his  birthday and asked his sister to buy Jenga as his present. His sister granted and we got the chanced to play this game but not at all times unless we visit nephew’s house.

Some info, Jenga is derived from swahili word meaning build. It is a physical and mental skill game. It was created by Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Parker brothers, a division of Hasbro. To play this game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller structure. The game ends when the tower falls, or if any piece falls from the tower other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The winner is the last person to successfully remove and place a block.

It’s fun playing Jenga, and the nice thing about this game, you can play this game alone, with friends and your family. Everyone in the family can enjoy this exciting game but kid should be atleast 6 year-old because of the small parts.

Well, we have one now in the house,   I saw similar to jenga. And surprisingly the price was really cheap. If jenga is Php 899, this one  cost only Php88, cheap right?  Same with jenga, it composed of 54  pieces of wood blocks but unlike jenga with only one color,  the one I bought was colorful. It has a die which will decide what block you will stack or move. And same with traditional jenga, the game is to pull out a block without crashing the stack to win the game. Win by being the last player to remove a block without causing the block to crash.

Hello my tooth fairy. This was last minute book parade  photo photo_zpsebxk3lhk.jpgcostume of my daughter. I thought she will be using her old Sofia the First gown. It was the gown she wore during her 7th birthday.  The gown still fits on her but because two years had passed, I need to adjust the length. She didn’t like to wear it so i need to think of another book parade costume. 

It wasn’t compulsory for the grade 3 students but i decided to let her joined the event.  I searched easy costume and what i saw was tooth fairy costume. I find it easy so i chose this costume for her.

For the costume, she needs black leggings, black leotard, tutu and wings. She already has black leggings and tutu, so i bought black leotard only. I just fix the tutu because it was used long time ago already. I put tooth on her leotard using white felt paper. I added happy face with google eyes. Gladly, there was cheap fairy wings available. This wings already included headband and wand. I made a little changes by changing butterfly design into tooth on the wand and also to the headband. I matched her costume with pink flat shoes to match on her tutu. My effort on doing this has paid off because she liked it.

Ideally, you should only do business with a prosthetics manufacturer that has many years of experience in the industry. You do not want to deal with a company that just got started in the business because there is no telling how good their prosthetics are.

Therefore, you should only deal with a company that has a proven track record of making dependable child prosthetics.

2. Will the prosthetics manufacturer guarantee the quality of their products?

The prosthetic device that you need to buy could be quite expensive. Therefore, it is important that you are able to make this purchase with complete confidence.

Make sure that you find out the specific terms of any warranty that covers the prosthetic device you are buying.

3. Is the prosthetic designer getting good reviews from previous clients?

It would be in your best interests to go online and find out what other people are saying about some of the prosthetics companies around the country. This will give you a good idea about the quality of the products that they produce. Make a note of the companies that get praised and criticized.

There is also the chance that the company you contact could refer you to a different designer that charges less.

Reasons why you should get an Aeration System

If you have a pond or body of water, you should consider getting an aeration system for it. There is a good chance that you don’t know what an aeration system is or what it does. You have been around them, though. People that own standing bodies of water use them all the time. Here are three reasons that you should get an aeration system.

Stratification

Your body of water probably stratifies during the summer months. As it sits stagnantly, the oxygen moves to the top of the water. That causes the bottom layer to run almost entirely out of oxygen. That is a bad thing because it causes the buildup of algae and other organic materials. The process can also be dangerous if your pond is stocked with fish. There are certain species of fish that like to live near the floor of the body of water where they live. They cannot do this if the pond becomes to stratified. An aeration system will redistribute the oxygen equally throughout the water to combat this. That will help bottom-dwelling fish survive the summer months and the thermal stratification that they bring.

Microorganisms

The lack of oxygen doesn’t just affect fish. There are invisible microorganisms in the water that are also affected by stratification. A lot of them are essential to the mini-ecosystem that is a pond or lake. One of the primary functions of these organisms is to clean the pond and get rid of waste. Without proper oxygenation through aeration, a bIody of water can become filthy.

Winter

If you live in a cold area, your pond probably gets frozen over during the winter months. That causes a problem when it comes to oxygen levels in the water. The thick sheet of ice on the surface of a lake prevents new oxygen from getting into the water. Since it can’t happen naturally, you need to find an unnatural way to get oxygen in there. That is another way that an aeration system comes in handy. It can make sure that fresh oxygen is being pumped into the water even when it is frozen over.

There are multiple aeration services companies in the area. Atlanta Aquatics is an example of a company for aeration systems Sandy Springs Georgia has to offer. If you are thinking about having a system installed or need some maintenance done on your current system, you should give them a call.
