Sweet Suite 2017 Swag Unboxing

As we mentioned in our last post, Sweet Suite 2017 was so much fun and one of the best parts of all is that after the fun of the night ends, you receive this MASSIVE box of goodies sent to your home with samples from many of the companies that were on display. As you can imagine our two youngest went absolutely bonkers for everything inside and have picked out a handful of toys they want to “share” (or fight over) with each other while we will be sharing the rest by doing some fun giveaways and sharing with kids in need this holiday season.

You can check out our unboxing video below an let us know what you think the coolest thing we got in the box was!!

Sweet Suite 2017 Was Awesome!!!

Every year for the past several years we have had the privilege of covering the annual Blogger Bash NYC Sweet Suite event. It is an absolutely amazing night put on by the fantastic team over at The Toy Insider and it is the place to be to hear all about the newest toys kids will be going crazy for this holiday season.

My lovely wife @BlogSenorita and I spent the evening at Pier Sixty in NYC checking out all of the goodies and have so much to show you all. While we had a fantastic time as always we did especially love what Jakks Pacific is doing with their Nintendo products (Splatoon Ink shooters are sooooo fun) and how much fun Sonic Mania from Sega and Lego Marvel Heroes 2 from WB games looks.

You can check out all of our pics below and stay tuned for our Sweet Suite Swag Unboxing and reviews!

WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT, TT GAMES AND THE LEGO GROUP LAUNCH LEGO® WORLDS  For PlayStation®4, Xbox One and STEAM

Players Can Create Anything Imaginable and Define Their Own Adventures

In Customizable Open Worlds Made Entirely of LEGO Bricks

Burbank, Calif. – March 7, 2017 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO® Group today announced that LEGO® Worlds, a galaxy of imaginative worlds made of digital LEGO bricks where players can explore, discover and create together, is now available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and STEAM. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, LEGO Worlds will be available for Nintendo Switch™ later this year.

In LEGO Worlds, players embark on a creative adventure to become a Master Builder and uncover hidden treasures in environments that range from fun to the fantastical, where worlds come to life with a dizzying variety of vehicles and creatures – from gingerbread men riding elephants to cavewomen scaring polar bears, to swamp police helicopters, hot air balloons and arctic snow scooters. Gamers can embark on a quest to become a Master Builder by helping other LEGO characters along the way – find a sword for an Egyptian Queen, protect a fisherman from a giant troll invasion, or build a home for a cyclops. Environments and creations are brought to life in any way fans can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous prebuilt LEGO structures, or by using wondrous tools that let them paint and shape the landscape. LEGO Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality allows players to explore each other’s worlds together and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.

A LEGO Agents pack, featuring new characters, vehicles, weapons and more from the Agents range of play materials, will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 for a limited time.

The Dad World Order Holiday Gift List: Day 1

I cant believe we are only a little over a week away from Thanksgiving 2016! Now I’ll admit I am one of those people that hates when others gloss over the awesomeness that is Thanksgiving to push us into the Christmas season but as a huge fan of Christmas and the overall holiday season in general, I cant pretend seeing all of the lights and festivities doesn’t get me excited!

10258899_10156339450880582_4098147392812569896_o

With that said I wanted to talk about gift giving. I know sometimes we can all get caught up with the materialism that often surrounds this season but I also love the joy it brings me when I find the perfect gift to give someone, especially when that someone is a kid. Seeing a little ones’ eyes light up is one of the best feelings in the world and I wanted to do my part as a nerd and parent of 17 years on what I think are some of the best gifts to give this Holiday season.

I thought about what format would be best to do this in and while doing one giant list is always fun I think It would be better to focus on one single item each and every day (I might even do several items a day). This way there can be daily suggestions as well as updated info on sales or products as we approach closer to Christmas. My plan right now is to post a new item daily from now until December 15th so you get 1 full month of what I think are the best gifts you can give.

Hopefully you will all enjoy this and it will help you if you’re looking for some great gifts to give this year and if you have any ideas or suggestions for things to include just let me know in the comments or on Twitter @DadWorldOrder

With that said lets get to it!

My first pick is a big one and something I may even be asking for this Christmas and it is the Sony Playstation VR. The PSVR is definitely an expensive pickup this holiday season at $399 and requires that you already own a PS4 system ($399) and a PS Camera ($59) but for gamers looking for a new experience I cant recommend the VR add on enough. Though virtual reality is still in its infancy for home use, it is still one of the most immersive and fun ways to play games I have ever experienced.

The headset allows gamers to “go inside” of the game and actually immerse themselves in new worlds. I had the experience to try out the PSVR and I have to say I’m very excited to see where the future of virtual reality gaming is headed.

The PSVR is definitely recommended for older gamers 12 and up so this might not be the best choice for your little ones but I guarantee it will be a hit with tweens and teens alike as well as adult gamers. The PSVR is currently available at most retailers and should be in stock throughout the holiday season.
