Queasy Pops for Seasickness


Disclaimer/Disclosure: I was given a sample to review. Any and all opinions are my own.

Hey guys and dolls! So Dr. Fronkensteen has never been on a cruise or out in the water for a sustained period of time. As such the first part of my cruise research was trying to find any seasickness remedies just in case he was a sufferer. While I looked I stumbled upon Queasy Pops.

These are lolly pops that are flavored to help easy the uneasy stomach. They come in 7 flavors including lemon, ginger and mint. I tried them one day when I had a yucky tummy. What I learned is that some flavors work better than others.

The mint seemed to work best on my stomach and soothed almost instantly. However the lemon tasted just like any ordinary lemon lollipop and it didn't do much to make me feel better. It was also very sweet. I think that these work best as a placebo effect to make you think you feel better. Certain flavors like ginger and mint really do soothe your stomach and add to making you feel better. However just knowing that these are helping make you feel like you can get through a stomach ache.

What do you think? What flavors help your stomach feel better? Any cures for seasickness?

Guardians of the Galaxy Figure #GotG


Disclaimer/Disclosure: I was given an item to review. Any and all opinions are my own. 

Hey guys and dolls! Leave it to me to be a little tardy to the party. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy! Such a fun movie and so entertaining. So when Hasbro showed me the cool toys they were coming out with I was stoked. They sent me the Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Battle FX Star-Lord Figure. I was excited to try him out.

My opinion? Star-Lord's like half awesome. That doesn't sound encouraging but I assure you it is. He lights up and says fun catch phrases. He makes laser shooting sounds and BONUS he sounds like music is playing. That sounds like a whole lot of awesome.

The downside? Star-Lord doesn't move. Just his arms move up and down. You can't pose him or get him to do epic battles with other figures. He just stands there. His mask also never comes off. Neither does his jacket. So you only get Star-Lord in complete battle mode. You can take off his guns and cassette player.

I would say this version of Star-Lord is perfect for the collector or the kid who just likes the noise but isn't into recreating fight scenes. Otherwise he would be so much better with movement.
