Pie Face Game Review

Pie Face GameThe hilarious Pie Face game is filled with fun and suspense, and somebody's bound to get surprised! Players load the arm with whipped cream or the included sponge, then take turns sliding their heads through the mask and spinning the spinner. But, watch out! The game unit could go off at any time giving someone a face full of whipped cream! (Whipped cream not included.)

Is there anything funnier than someone getting a face full of whipped cream? Now families can bring the silly fun into their homes with this laugh-out-loud Pie Face game. Just load the arm with whipped cream  spin the spinner, and hope that someone else gets whipped cream on their face! Game includes a sponge that can be used in place of whipped cream.

Great Game for Friends and Family

Score 25 Points to Win

Get ready to take some risks -- and hope for the best -- in this hilarious Pie Face game! Feel the suspense build as players take turns in the "hot seat" – hoping against hope to avoid being the one to get whipped cream – or a nice wet sponge -- in the face! First, load the arm. Then, it's time to take turns spinning the spinner to find out how many times each player will have to turn the handle. Click…click…click -- players score points every time they turn the handle safely, but every click brings the moment everyone is waiting for just a little bit closer. The first player to score 25 points wins! 

We love this game! It was surprisingly one of the funniest games we have played as a family! The more players the better, suspense builds and gets the whole family laughing. One might think there isn't much to the game but you do keep score and do points. First one to 25 points wins! Its fun and suspenseful! It is a messy game just warning you ahead of time :) It is definitely a game you need to get the kids.

Seventh Generation Energy Smart Laundry Detergent!

Seventh Generation™ Energy Smart® – High Performance Clean in Low Energy Settings*.


Energy Smart Laundry Detergent is formulated for high performance cleaning in low energy settings. Energy Smart is formulated with advanced enzyme technology to give the same performance in cold and warm water. Not only is this product formulated for cold water, but each household can save $17 per year using low energy settings*.
*Energy savings are based on switching from a typical mix of hot, warm and cold wash and rinse settings to using cold wash and rinse settings for 300 loads per year. Energy savings are derived from a weighted average of water heater fuel types and front and top loading washers. Dollar savings estimates represent the total laundry system and include reduced energy consumption of the washer and water heater. Results may vary based on washing machine model and cost of energy.
  •  Laundry Liquid designed for Standard and HE machines
  •  USDA Certified Biobased 96%
  •  Laundry Liquid that supports sustainable palm oil
  •  Liquid Laundry Detergent that is hypoallergenic
Air leaks are a large source of heat loss in the home 
during winter. A common place where air leaks occur is under the door leading from the house to the garage because they are often not as well sealed as doors leading directly to the outside. Install a door sweep to seal the gap between the bottom of your door and the threshold to prevent cold air from coming in and warm air from escaping from your home. Stopping this air flow will keep heated indoor living space more comfortable and prevent increased energy bills.


Artificial brightners are synthetic chemicals that make fabrics appear to glow in ultraviolet light. They don't have anything to do with getting things clean - they're only added to detergents to make us think our laundry is brighter and whiter.

Find the full line of products at your local Target!

When I heard of Seventh Generation about a year ago. I started with some of the baby products, like the diapers, wipes. Then when i found the household items I started buying the detergent and dish soap. Seventh Generation sent me a full sized bottle of the Energy Smart Laundry Detergent to try out. First thing I did notice is that the detergent does not have a strong smell to it which is good and there are No harsh chemicals being put into it so I feel that its safe for my family. This is one brand that I love talking about because these products are not only safe and effective for my family but for the planet and future generations to come!

This was the first movie I have seen with David Oyelowo. He is a great actor! Kate Mara who plays Smith, I have seen her in a few things like House Of Cards. Both actors are very strong and powerful in their roles. Overall its a family friendly drama with  a powerful message. Excellent movie to watch!
