Turbo Chore Kit

*Disclaimer - I received the items mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes. In no way did this alter my review. All of my opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent honest and true.*

You may remember the recent post I published about Turbo, which included a giveaway and some awesome printables including mazes, bookmarks, and a connect the dot activity. The giveaway has come to an end but the Turbo fun is still in full effect. Our family recently received some fun Turbo Chore Kits to get our little speed machines excited about doing their chores! But before I fill you in about our Turbo Chore Kits, let me tell you a bit about the movie first, just in case you missed my past post. 

Turbo, is a fast paced comedy-adventure that is a must-watch for your entire family! It includes an amazing voice cast including the famous Snoop Dog and Samuel L. Jackson, just to name a couple. This cute little movie features a snail (the voice of Ryan Reynolds), who has always dreamed of being a professional car racer. After sucking in some fumes, he just might be the fastest snail in town, and who knows, perhaps he may even win the Indy 500 race!

After watching the movie basically every day for two weeks straight, my children have been in overdrive mode. Every time they watch the movie it hypes them up and get's them all engertic. A great way to put their energy to use is by doing chores. And what funner way than to do them using Turbo Chore Kits. The past few days my kids have been racing around the house to complete their chores. 

Each of my three sons received a Turbo Chore Kit which included the following items:

  • Blue Stopwatch
  • Light-up Turbo Headband
  • A Goal Chore Kit with Stickers
  • Word Magnets
  • Notebook
  • Pullback Turbo Race/Action Figure
Usually I have to beg my children just to help clean, but I haven't had to do that since we received their Turbo Chore Kits! They actually ask me if they can clean up! While they clean up, I allow them to wear their Turbo headband which actually lights up. It helps them pretend to be little Turbo's themselves! We time them using their stopwatch and the child that completes their chores the fastest receives a special treat. 

They are able to keep up with their chores using their chore kits, which inspires them to continue to clean on a daily basis and helps keep them organized. Plus, they feel accomplished when they get to place their special stickers on their charts as they complete their chores. We use the notebooks and the pullback turbo action figures as reward playtime after they complete their chores. And guess what's on our fridge? Yep, you guessed it - Turbo Word Magnets! 

My kids really enjoy the chore kits, especially my three year old who is beginning to believe he is actually Turbo! A special thanks to DreamWorks Animation for providing us with these exciting chore kits!
