Girls Monster High Costume

My daughter is 6 year old and like most 6 years old now a days, she already knew what she wants to wear for Halloween! She asked me to get her a Frankie Stein Costume mainly to wear as a ghoulish get up at schools Monster Party which I did got online from Anytime Costumes and frankly,  I am quite impress of its quality! So here is my review.

The costume is a dress with zip at the back, attached sleeves and tie with plastic skull on it and believe me the quality is far better than the regular Halloween costume! The material is a shiny polyester type of clothing and even though it is not stretchable, it still feels comfortable to wear. Probably best getting a size bigger as I did order a size up for my daughter and fits perfectly for her.

The dress come with leggings and it looks well made! It is made out of a soft but quality material and looks like the type that you can wash over a few times. The belt is made of glittery plastic that has studs and lightning bolt on it, which looks lovely!
And lastly is the black and gray stripped boots cover, which just go over and hide the shoes to complete the Frankie Stein look!

Like I said, I am impress with the quality of this costume and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone! You can also browse the Monster Library to get more ideas about Monster High.

Animal Crossing New Leaf Tropical Island

My 6 year old loves this game and she enjoys going to the tropical island to go on tours, catch bugs, fish, get fruits and occasionally chat with other players. Please note that some of the players in animal crossing are not children! So make your child aware that some grownups are also using this game and she should never give out any personal information such as age, names, addresses, or even their school.

The tropical island is fun, but in order to unlock it, you have to pay the full amount of your house. Then the old mayor Tortimer (a turtle) will come and visit you to tell you about the island. I think it was the following day after Tortimer appears there will be a boat waiting at the dock with Kapp’n in it. You have to pay him 500 bells to get to the island and you can choose if you want to travel with other player or alone. Travelling with other player means it will connect you online so you can play with other players from all over the world.

Oh before I forget, you cannot bring any of your things to the island, except your bells! Once you are in the island, you can borrow most of the stuff you need from a Gyroid, such as shovel, net, fishing rod and so on. Then you can get fruits, bugs, fishes (even sharks) to take back to the mainland and sell or keep them, just put them in the basket near the reception in the island before leaving.  On the tours, you can also earn medals every time you win, which you can use to buy stuff in the island.
Over all, it is still a fun game and would recommend to a child who can read.
