Q. Why did the one-eyed monster close his school?
A. Because he only had one pupil! Parum-Pum-Ch!
This week, we’re reviewing the Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Disc Alien Ultimatrix.
This latest addition Ultimatrix comes with a disc-shaped alien hero that can be placed inside the Ultimatrix and activated to pop up bringing the alien to life. These Alien Discs come packed with a select articulated 4″ figure.
- Contents: 1 Ultimatrix, 1 spring loaded Disc Alien, lights and sounds and 1 Ultimate Humungousaur disc alien in a blister card package.
- The Disc Alien Ultimatrix unlocks the alien voices and sounds of several characters from the cartoon.
- Use the disc aliens (that come in the #27770 Alien Collection figures) to watch each come alive in 3D.
The manufacturer recommended age is 4 – 10 years.
It’s a great toy! It does make sounds and plays different voices. (Especially if you learn the trick to make them without the discs!) It has fit on my wrist and those of several different-sized kids. The ring does not pop up or turn but we’re buying it for sound anyway.
Two thumbs up.
The Webmom’s Thoughts
Like, CJ said, the ring is stationary. It was frustrating to get the discs in and out quickly during play time and some discs do not play a voice! However, CJ has gotten a lot of use out of it and it is definitely been sturdy enough to withstand a lot of different kiddos taking turns with it.
One thumb up.
It’s an affordable product in the Ben 10 product lineup and gets the CJsKidsClub.com “Seal of Fun”.
This week, CJ is making his famous Homemade Pseudo-Muffins!
What You’ll Need
Bread (a few slices of any kind will do)
Jam or Jelly
A Spreading Knife
Your Favorite Cookie Cutter (or an empty jam jar)
We are using the mini-jars we received as part of a Christmas sampler.
Remove the crust from the bread slices you are going to use.
Use your cookie cutter or empty jam jar to cut out the little “muffins”.
Spread some jam or jelly over your muffins. Try to be careful though, you don’t want to get all sticky!
Eat it! YUM!
