Don't worry. I've got you covered. And you can pick these up all in one store. (Major Department Store or Toy store)
Here are my family's top picks from Hasbro this holiday season. These toys are all readily available and will be a guaranteed hit with your family.
Maddie's Pick: Love2Learn Elmo
Elmo is always a favourite in our house and this new Love2Learn Elmo from Playskool doesn't disappoint. He sings and talks but the selling feature? He has his own app that helps kids learn their ABCs, counting and some favourite songs. $59.99
Isabelle's Pick: My Little Pony Baby Flurry Heart
Isabelle noticed this toy on TV a while back and she literally ripped it out of the box when it came to our house. Kids will love taking care of sweet little Baby Flurry Heart. She's soft and cuddly, she talks and her horn lights up. While this is Isabelle's pick for Best Toy, Maddie has also had a blast playing with Baby Flurry Heart and even put a diaper on her -- or two! (not included --our own!). Baby Flurry Heart comes with a rattle and bottle. Teaches imaginative play. $39.99
Julia's Pick: FurReal Friends Torch, My Blazin' Dragon
OK -- this Dragon is seriously cool. Battery operated, Torch the Blazin Dragon moves and makes noises, fine, but he blows smoke!! Help Torch roast marshmallows with his flame coloured mist. This is unlike any toy I've seen before but kids will recognize the FurReal Friends brand, which is now famous for its lifelike toys. $79.99
Donny's Pick: Star Wars Interactech Imperial Stormtrooper Figure
There's nothing like a grown man who plays with figurines. To say Donny was excited to see this Stormtrooper is an understatement, and while this IS a kids toy, Dads who were once Star Wars fans are always Star Wars fans, I'm told! This Stormtooper has more than 65 different sound effects and phrases and uses a motion sensor to respond to specific movements. $29.99
Family Game: Bop It!
Do you remember Zip Zap Zop? Well this is KINDA like that, only you have this Bop It! gamer that uses motion technology to test your skill and quick hands. Bop It! is portable and has three solo and social play options, so you can play individually or with a group. And if you're competitive, this is your game! Bop It! not only keeps score, he makes you feel bad when you mess up! Ha! $19.99
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and get your paws on some of these great toys before time really runs out!
We also have a FurReal Friends Torch, My Blazin' Dragon to give away! Unfortunately, it won't arrive before Christmas, but will still make an awesome gift another time of the year! To win Torch, subscribe to my newsletter (top right) and leave your name in the comments!
