Review: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Zombies - Tranzit Farm and Zombie Horde Building Sets (For Grownups)

By now, my love of Activision's CALL OF DUTY Franchise should be pretty evident, even though I don't get time to play as much as I'd like to. But, with the recent line of Call of Duty Collectors Series Building Sets from Mega Bloks, I've been bringing a little of that military action into a different kind of playtime. Technically, these are recommended for ages 10 and up (I say they're "For Grownups"), but there's been somewhat of a zombie outbreak fascination that's hit my oldest daughter's circle of friends (and they're just in the 4-5 range), which, believe it or not, I had nothing to do with. You see, I know a thing or two (maybe a NSFW-ish three) about zombies, so when the folks at Mega Bloks asked me to check out a couple of their Call of Duty Zombies sets - resistance was not even an option.

Just in-time to infiltrate Easter baskets, Rabbids toys just hit Walmart and Toys "R" Us Stores Nationwide. Here's what's out there right now...

Play Matters: KaBOOM! Moves Closer to Announcing America's Most Playful Family...

KaBOOM!The folks at KaBOOM! have been doing some incredible work over the years, completing well over 2,000 playground builds as they move toward their mission of making sure that every child has a safe place to play within walking distance of their home. While it's nice to check out a website or see a story in the news, nothing is more impactful than viewing it with your own eyes - and I've seen what KaBOOM! can accomplish first-hand, as there are two parks that we visit that were the result of volunteer-staffed builds. In fact, I just shot some video of my girls playing at one of them this week (technically, we've been there twice this week)... take a look:
