Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo Cards

And last on ‘amiibo week,’ here are some amiibo cards I recently got of a crossover with Animal Crossing and Sanrio.  You know, the folks who make Hello Kitty.  Out of all the amiibo things I’ve wrote about this week, these cards were probably the hardest things to get!  So let’s take a look at them!

Monster Hunter Rise amiibo

Recently I got a bunch of new amiibo figures and cards, so I thought I’d spend this first week of the month talking about them.  I guess you could call this month “A-MAY-Bo.”  Ok sorry, that was bad.  Anyway, first up is some amiibo figures based on Monster Hunter Rise, the newest game in the series that was just released recently. I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before, so this should be quick!

Play Pac-Man…on a Pizza Box?!?

Pac-Man is one of the most popular video games of all time, and you can play the game on pretty much anything.  Nearly every game console has a version of it, and you can even play it on your smart phone.  And now you can play it on the top of your pizza box?!?  What a world we live in!  Seems kind of ironic since Pac-Man was said to be conceived when the creator took a slice out of a pizza (although that’s not the full story).  But here in the US, Pizza Hut is doing a promotion with Pac-Man where you can use your phone to play an AR game of Pac-Man on the top of your pizza box!  How does that work?  Well you’ll just have to read on to find out!

Arby’s Kids Meals Have…Shovel Knight?!?

So I’ve written about fast food chains doing kids meal toys based on video games in the past.  Burger King or McDonald’s doing Mario or Pokémon toys, for instance.  Heck, I’ve even wrote about Arby’s doing Sonic the Hedgehog toys in a past kids meal promo.  But those aren’t much of a surprise since all those games are in the public eye forefront.  So when I saw that Arby’s was now doing Shovel Knight toys in their kids meals, I was like, “WHAT?!?”  I mean, Shovel Knight is a very popular indie game.  But it’s still just an indie game.  Didn’t think it was something kids were into.  But as a Shovel Knight fan, you know I had to take a look at this, so let’s dig into Arby’s latest crazy kids meal promo!

Let’s Bake Pokémon Cookies!

Pillsbury just released Pokémon themed ready-to-bake cookies.  They’re just sugar cookies with Pokémon related pictures on them.  You’ve seen cookies like this before, I’m sure, especially around holidays like Christmas, Halloween, and Easter.  I got some, so let’s check them out!  You might see more Pokémon products than usual this year since it’s Pokemon’s 25th anniversary.  So there’s also a bonus item at the end of this article as well!

EyeJust Screen Protectors

Everyone, including kids, are using tablets, phones, and staring at screens more and more.  These types of devices emit ‘blue light’ that is said to be harmful to eyes, skin, and sleep.  Of course, the simple solution is to limit your kids’ time on those devices.  But with COVID, remote learning is being used more in schools, so they really don’t have much of a choice.  But now there is EyeJust, a series of screen protectors that block that harmful blue light.  They’re available for most mobile phones, tablets, some laptops, and even the Nintendo Switch!  Being blind in my left eye since birth, I’m always on the lookout for things to help protect my eyes.  So I’m happy I was able to give some of these a try for review purposes.

Special Delivery From Nook Inc.!

A few weeks ago, I saw an ad on Facebook for an Animal Crossing Loot Box from CultureFly.  It was a little more than what I wanted to spend on it, but it had a lot of good things so I caved in and ordered it.  I do really like Animal Crossing!  So let’s take a look at what’s inside, plus a bonus item!
