To celebrate the new film, Zak Designs has created some awesome new Spider-Man products for the whole family. When I saw the tumbler I had to have it, because one I’m a geek, two it’s a big one, and three I’m a coffee drinking geek. I’m stoked that Zak made Spider-Man themed items for the whole family. When you see them you’ll be hyped too. You’re going to love these Spider-Man Far From Home Must Haves from Zak.
Thank you Zak Designs for sending over these products. All opinions are our own. Affiliate link below.
Spider-Man Far From Home Must Haves From Zak Designs!
For the younger Spider-Man fans, pick up the 15oz stainless steel water bottle with double-wall vacuum insulation as well as the 16oz water bottle made from durable Tritan material. Both bottles feature a flip-up drinking spout, detachable straw, and are BPA free. We use the stainless steel water bottle for pool days or running errands since it is insulated. The other water bottle is great hanging out at home or taking to a friend’s house.
The locking, reusable sandwich container, also BPA Free, is perfect for lunchtime anywhere your Summer adventures take you. I love that the lid is attached so it’s one less lid I’ll lose in the drawer! It fits easily in their lunch boxes and keeps their sandwiches or whatever else we put in there from getting crushed.
Now it’s my turn kids. This special edition Lynden tumbler is amazing like Spider-Man, comic book nerds see what I did there. It is a 28oz double-wall stainless steel cup that has vacuum insulation. That’s fancy talk for my hot coffee stays hot and my iced tea stays cold for hours and I do mean hours. I forgot about my coffee and came back to it at an undisclosed time later and it was still hot.
The lid is splash-proof, which is awesome because I’ve been known to spill coffee on myself a time or three. The cup is also BPA free and features a silicon wrap for grip to keep you from dropping it as you swing through the streets looking for bad guys. Did I mention 28oz? I know I did but for emphasis I said it again because yes!! I like my caffeine in the largest quantity possible. Basically I’m in love.

Monopoly: LOL Surprise Edition Review
This version of Monopoly is a little different from what you’re used to. Instead of buying properties, the goal is to collect Dolls and Pets. Surprise! Cards replace the Chance cards, and there are some pretty sweet surprises waiting in those cards. I may have used one to dominate a certain round of the game. Also hotels and houses have been replaced by Stars and Emojis.
I’m not going to lie, the bright pink colors kinda spoke to me. What can I say, I’m a sucker for glitter and pink. My daughter and her friends thought it was the best thing ever that the tokens for the game are actual accessories for their L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls. That’s another component to the game, opening up the token bags is like opening mini-blind bags, so fun!
One thing I loved about this game is that it felt easier to play than traditional Monopoly. Monopoly is one of those games that can bring out the best and the worst, we have all been there when we just wanted to walk away and stop playing! This version though is less intense and with some really awesome editions to the Surprise (Chance) Cards, so you can actually finish a game that you start.
We had a lot of laughs playing this together. And even though I beat her using one of the Surprise! Cards you can save, ahem strategy, she had a good time. She even likes that you can use one of the cards to take the complete set of cards from another player. Because it always happens that on the next turn they land on a space they just lost and now have to pay up!
I may have beaten her the first couple rounds but she eventually got me. We are trying to convince my husband to play but he knows how ruthless I can be and I taught my daughter a few tricks too. He’ll eventually give in and we can show him who’s the best doll collector of them all!

I’ve partnered with the Disney Book Group to share about our experiences with the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. All opinions are our own.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Why the Kids Love This Series
One thing I love about the Percy Jackson series is that it is a learning experience. The kids and I have been finding out about so many different Greek gods, including ones you never hear about. Do you know who Janus is? I know I didn’t until Book 4: The Battle of the Labyrinth. FYI Janus is the two-headed minor god of choices, doorways, beginnings, and endings.
Both kids have been binging (is that a thing with books?) the Percy Jackson series. My daughter has just finished Book 3: The Titan’s Curse, while my son is almost at the end of Book 2: The Sea of Monsters. Me? Well I’m ahead and starting Book 5: The Last Olympian. Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a fun read for all ages and it gives the kids and I a lot to talk about. I’m 100% certain my daughter and I are children of Athena while my son might be an Ares or Poseidon camper, depending on the day.
When I say binging, I mean they are barely putting the books down. We went on a minivacation and the Percy Jackson books came along for the ride. Whether in the car or lounging in the hotel room these two have their noses buried in a book. I can’t say I blame them; I can’t wait to find out how it ends! Even thought I hate when series end. Lucky for all of us Rick Riordan has more books for readers to enjoy. Find them here: ReadRiordan.com
My daughter is enjoying learning about Greek mythology. She is coming to me all the time to talk about something new and exciting she read in the books. Recently, she told me that reading how Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are brave despite everything scary thrown at them, has inspired her to face her fears and trust in herself. My mom heart is bursting.
Then there is my son. He is all about the monster fighting action, sword fighting, and chariot races. If it involves sending someone or something back to Tartarus he is there for it. His favorite character is Percy and he constantly asks when he will get a Riptide. I told him keep checking his pockets; maybe it will turn up one day.
Like Sally, Percy’s mom, I also like to make special treats for my kids. In honor of Percy’s favorite color food and his Olympian heritage, I whipped up a tasty batch of Sea Candy Bark. I think Sally, Percy, and even Poseidon would approve of this blue dessert.
Percy Jackson Sea Candy Bark
• 1 package turquoise candy melts
• 1 package blue candy melts
• 1 package bright white candy melts
• Sea themed sprinkles or other candy sprinkles of your choice
1. Place each color candy melt into separate, microwave safe bowls.
2. Microwave the candy melts for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat this until the candy melts are fully melted.
3. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
4. Using the spoon you stirred with, make dollops of each of the colors all over the sheet.
5. Use a spatula to swirl the colors together, careful not to over mix.
6. Sprinkle the top with the sprinkles you chose.
7. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
8. Peel the candy off the wax sheet, then using your hands break the candy apart into chunks.
9. Enjoy your tasty Percy Jackson Sea Candy Bark before or after fighting monsters from Tartarus.

My daughter is an avid reader and couldn’t wait to start this series. And while it’s written for ages 8-12, grades 3-7, we think even older kids and adults will enjoy it. She is sharing her thoughts on each book below and why they are a great pick for your family.
Welcome To Wonderland #3 Sandapalooza Shake-Up
Welcome To Wonderland Sandapalooza Shake-Up is full of mystery and suspense. The motel is competing against their rival to win the sand sculpture contest. They also opened a new restaurant called The Banana Shack. It sells this drink called Orange Sproke.
It’s a mixture of coke, sprite, and orange fanta. Sounds crazy right? Oh and an important guest’s priceless tiara has gone missing. So P.T. and Gloria (she’s my favorite) have to win the contest, keep the restaurant going, and find out who took the tiara!
Welcome To Wonderland #4 Beach Battle Blowout
Welcome To Wonderland Beach Battle Blowout sees Wonderland competing to be the best on the beach. Some competitors have roller coasters, jet packs, and pirates! What?! So what are P/T. and Gloria going to do to win? You’ll have to read to find out.
I liked all the characters introduced in this book except one. That kid Bradly was a big jerk. So obnoxious. I just wanted him to lose so he would be quiet. Have you ever felt that way about someone in a book?
Where Can I Buy Welcome To Wonderland?
You can purchase the entire Welcome To Wonderland series on Amazon or at a bookstore near you. Grab them all because we know the kids are going to want to read them all.
