The Must-Have Toys for the Holidays – List 3 #GIVEAWAY

The Must-Have Toys for the Holidays

Are you ready to see what the must-have toys of the season are? We (yes “we” does include me) had a lot of fun testing out the newest toys for the Holidays and I am excited to finally let you know what they are. Brace yourself there are A LOT that we loved and want to share! All these toys were sent to me for review and I have hand picked our favorites.

NHL AirPuck (3+)
This is going to be a HUUUUUGE hit this season!!!!
The amount of marks and dents I have on my wall in the basement from hockey pucks/balls hitting it is my new kind of normal. My big guy started playing hockey 5 or 6 years ago and used to practice shots in the basement with my husband. It wasn’t until a puck ALMOST hit my little guy in the head that I stopped it. There is a solution!!!! The brand new NHL AirPucks have protective foam padding around it so it won’t damage walls. Turn it on and it lights up and hovers over smooth surfaces. This actually makes playing hockey fun for my 5 year old.
Side Note: it does not come with batteries so make sure you have it accessible (4 x AA)

Where to Buy: Party Rock $25

MGA Entertainment’s Ready2Robot Battle Pack (4+)
A gift within a gift within a gift within a gift!!! Just when you think you got your toy, there is a blind box that the kids unwrap (parents get the scissors out for this one) and it reveals different parts of the second battle robot which the little one’s assemble (don’t worry, it’s easy to put together). What really made my little guy laugh was that he had to stick his fingers into a little container of gooey slime to get the little character that goes onto the top of the robot! If you want a stocking stuffer or to collect more, you can buy the blind boxes separate.
Note: Make sure to open all three areas of the chamber to get all robot parts. 

Where to Buy: Indigo $30

Battle Robots

MGA Entertainment’s Crate Creature Flingers (4+)
Brake the crate to let your creature free! We can’t seem to get enough of these little guys (i’m a sucker for a not-so-scary monster). Not only are they cute, but you pull their tongue and they say funny things and best of all (what gets the kids laughing), they belch. For the parents (like myself) that dislike toys that just randomly talk when they aren’t being touched, this is not one of them and there is an off button on the back. These are great as a stocking stuffer or as a smaller gift (he is about the size of my hand)
Note: they come in larger furry creatures 

Where to Buy: Indigo, Amazon $15.99

Crate Creatures Flingers

Flushin Frenzy – Pop the Poop by Mattel (5+)
Talk about getting a laugh, this game is a MUST have for the Holidays!!!! I mean, what child wouldn’t love a game with a flying poop. Yup, you heard me: roll the dice and plunge the toilet as many times as the dice shows to unleash the flying poop. The first person to grab it or catch it in the air gets a coin. The first person to get the most coins wins (it’s just that easy).

Where to Buy: Amazon.ca, Indigo, Toys R Us $17.50

Flushin Frenzy

—————————————————–

Hydro Strike by Pressman Toys (7+)
So first off this game totally reminds me the old school pinball games but mini version. My big guy really liked this one and that says a lot since he doesn’t really play games anymore with me 🙁 Fill the two little containers on the side with water, drop a ball down ramp and try to keep it out of your zone. If the ball gets through your zone, the game will squirt you. Not to worry parents who don’t like a mess, it’s just a little squirt but since they are little it gets them bang on (hence why he took his shirt off) LOL.

Where to Buy: Amazon.com $38.50 (includes import fees)

Hydro Strike

—————————————————

Grossery Gang Bug Strike (5+)
Back 5 years ago, my older son was introduced to Grossery Gangs by his cousin. My mini has since taken over his collection and we have a bin … yes a BIN full of Grossery Gangs. The newest line is called Grossery Gang Bug Strike and they are little rubbery creatures that kids can collect. The best way to describe these is that they are the boy version of Shopkins. The best part is that they come in little toilets which you add water to (before you open it) and when the kids break the seal (no pun intended) it is filled with a yellow bubbly substance with the figures inside (you dump it out after – it’s just for giggles).
They come in smaller toilet packs (great for stocking stuffers) and larger packs (great for the bigger presents), as well as a lot of garbage trucks and motor bikes the kids use the little figures with.

Where to Buy: Toys R Us, Price ranges from $3.99 – $24.99 for the packs

Grossery Gang Bug Strike

Flik Flak Watch
A few years ago, my big guy was learning to tell the time so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to buy him a watch. First stop, the Swatch booth at Yorkdale (their kids line is called Flik Flak)! We were offered a chance to check out Flik Flak’s new line of watches and my mini was so excited because he was finally getting a watch. They both have not taken them off since. This year they are offering really great patterned and textured bands great for their little audiences and their older audiences.

Where to Buy: Amazon Swatch $80-$95

Flik Flak Watches

——————————————————–

DC Super Friends HeroDrive Batman Racer by Funrise (3+)
Calling all Superhero fans! Little one’s are going to love these racers, with lights and sounds they are sure to please those curious little minds. I thought they might be too young for my mini but he has been playing with them using his little superhero figures that we have.  There are a lot of options in this new line: the Signal Squad cars have a signal light that illuminates on walls and retail for $12.99, from the Mash Machines which make sounds and have flashing lights retail for $9.99 and lastly the ultimate Batman Racer has lights, engine sounds and music  which retails for $29.99. The added bonus, all come with batteries!!!

Where to Buy: Toys R Us and Home Hardware

Batman HeroDrives

Professor Maxwell’s 4D Chef’s Kit
This is neat!!! Now that it’s getting colder out, parents are always looking for indoor things to do with their kids and this is a great activity! Cooking brought to life. Download the app onto your phone, insert your phone into the virtual reality glasses then look at one of the recipes and Professor Maxwell comes to life introducing your child to the recipe and he even explains the science behind the food. Look at all the steps and it activates “how to” videos. Note: this product DOES NOT come with the food, but it does come with all the utensils (measuring cups, cutting board, spatula, measuring spoons, apron, hat and much more!
Side Note: the VR glasses were too heavy for my mini to wear so he lost interest

Where to Buy: Scholar’s Choice Best Buy $40 (other options available: Science and Chemistry Kits)

Professor Maxwells 4D Chef

——————————————————

Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty (8+)
Remember the days when putty was only a beige colour and came in an egg and we thought it was the coolest thing ever? Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty has completely changed putty and it can’t get any cooler. You name it, they have it. Everything from: sparkly putty, magnetic putty, hypercolour putty, unicorn putty, glow-in-the-dark putty, scented putty to name a few. When my kids saw these, they begged me to open them. One was the Strange Attractor Putty which is magnetic (which they were fascinated with) and Super Fly Putty which is an illusion putty. What they were even MORE excited about was the Mixed by Me Thinking Putty Kit which they create their own heat sensitive putties and even make their own tin labels. This one makes for a great rainy day activity – my new go-to birthday gift! I love that it’s non-toxic and made in the USA.
Side Note: the tin can be hard to open, I had to use a fork to separate the tin (part of the putty was under the lid which is why it was sealed as tight as it was)

Where to Buy: Amazon $32 and Scholars Choice $30

Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty

————————————————————

Tic Tac Tongue by Yulu (4+)
This is a very easy game that the whole family can play. Put the tongue through the frogger face mask, attach the mouth cap to it (easier to clean), insert the number images into the little stands, put them randomly in a row and begin the game. The object of the game is to get the most cards in your colour by choosing the correct number shown and knocking it down with your frogger tongue. This game is perfect for the little one’s who are learning to recognize numbers, plus they loved blowing out the tongue!
Side note: the kids loved the face mask but I had a really hard time with having my face covered 

Where to Buy: Amazon $17.99 or Indigo $20

Tic Tac Tongue

—————————————————–

LeapFrog LeapStart Learning System
This is fabulous learning tool that is actually a fun way for kids to learn! My recommendation: purchase some books right off the bat. First you are going to need to charge your LeapStart Book then download the audio for the books you have purchased by going to the leapfrog web page. If you want to know which books are suitable for your kids, you can go online and see what they offer by grade. Once that is all done, your little one takes the pen that is included with the LeapStart and tap on all different points of the book and it will read/say what you have touched. There are different icons at the bottom of some of the pages, those will guide you to different activities/challenges/problem solving etc that your mini can do throughout the book. Up next for us, the beginner learn-to-read series! Big fan.

Where to Buy: Amazon $50 and Mastermind Toys $60, Books range in price from $10-$25

LeapFrog LeapStart

——————————————————-

HexBug Ring Racer (8+)
I feel like this is the kind of product I would walk right by at a toy store (probably because it’s small), but now that we have tested it out, that would have been a mistake! Out of allllll the toys we have gotten to test, this is the only one that caused a fight because they both were fighting over who got to play with it. So first, let me recommend BUY TWO if you have two kids. They can battle it out together and create their own unique stunts (my kids had it fly down the stairs)! The HexBug Ring Racer tumbles, spins and flips over 360 degrees using the little controller. There are two speed settings: regular and fast mode. Best of all, the batteries are rechargeable so no need to go through a ton of batteries. Just make sure to charge it before you give it to them (it comes with a cord and charges pretty quickly).

Where to Buy: Mastermind Toys $30 or Amazon $32

HexBug Ring Racer

——————————————————————–

There are two more toys that I wanted to show you as I thought they would be great for the Holidays, however I did not test them so I can not review them, BUT I am going to purchase them for my kids if that helps 🙂

A. Crate Creatures: I have the Crate Creature Flingers which made my list but this is the larger version that is plush and makes tons of hilarious noises that kids just love! Plus you have to break them out their crate which is always fun for kids
B. Kerplunk Game: A game that would be great for both of my kids to play. Carefully pull out the sticks but don’t pull the the wrong one otherwise all the balls will fall.

Hasbro’s Hottest Toys for the Holidays #GIVEAWAY #FortniteMonopoly

The Must-Have Toys for the Holidays

Hasbro always has the best toys and I have tested and reviewed some of our favorites for the Holidays. So here we go:

Nerf Modulus Ghost Ops Evader 8+
Alright friends, this Nerf gun is the Nerf guns of all Nerf guns (well that I have seen)! I am sure there are many of you that don’t want to allow a Nerf gun in the house because A. you worry about the fact that “they are playing with guns” and B. you worry about someone getting hurt. I had this same thing but I have to tell you, it got my kids off their devices and actually running around the house playing games with it. I had one rule: WAIST DOWN and they happily abide by it because they know I will just take them away. This puppy has a motorized blaster that shoots out one dart right after the other (fits 12 darts). The blaster illuminates so they can play in dark(ish) rooms. You can even buy extra parts for it with the entire Modulus system.

Where to Buy: Walmart Amazon $40

Nerf Modulus Ghost Ops Blaster

——————————————————–

Nerf Laser Ops Pro – AlphaPoint
Ok, so you want a Nerf gun but you hate the idea of darts shooting out and possibly hitting you or your little guy in the face … am I right? The solution is right here! The new Nerf Laser Ops Pro uses lasers instead of darts. My kids (husband included) ran around the house hiding in places trying not to get shot. Once you get “hit” a sound will go off noting that you have been hit. There is a back display noting your health and how much ammo you have left and has an easy reload button to get them quickly back in the game. This one is a no brainer! Bonus: no darts to clean up. It’s a win win.

Where to Buy: Toys R Us Amazon $50

Nerf Laser Ops AlphaPoint

—————————————————————-

Play-Doh Poop Troop Playset (3+)

It seems there is a common theme with this years hottest toys, poop!!! I am actually shocked that wasn’t my mini’s first words because he certainly likes to talk about poo and makes (the worst) poo jokes and sure enough he belly laughs every time he says the word so obviously he would love the new Play-Doh Poop Troop Playset. It comes with 12 jars of Play-Doh in all colours so kids can make their very own poo emojis. Complete with eyes, ears, arms and toppers, have your kids come up with their own creative poop emojis.

Where to Buy: Amazon $35

Play-Doh Poop Troop Set

————————————————————–

Yellies (5+)
This is one spider that we are not scared of! The louder your mini yells, the faster these guys go. Don’t worry, it’s not only just yelling they respond to: talk, sing, clap or play music and the Yellies will move and watch their eyes light up. These guys make a great stocking stuffer. Collect all the critters and have your little guys run around your house chasing after them.

Where to Buy: Amazon Toys R Us $20

Yellies

————————————————————–

Connect 4 Shots (8+)

Winner winner!!! The game is Connect 4 meets Cup Pong where you have to bounce the ball and get it into a cup but instead of a cup you have to get it into the row you want. It seems easy, but those balls don’t always go where you want them to and you end up helping out your rival (clearly that’s what happened when we played). Easy to put together and easy storage as it folds flat.

Where to Buy: Amazon Toys R Us $20

Connect 4 Shots

Fortnite Monopoly (13+)
Need I say more … SOLD!!!! Those who know, know! My big guys went CRAZY over this.

Where to Buy: Walmart Amazon $25

The Back-to-School Snack Struggle #SimplyProtein

Simply Protein Kids Bar

For those who know me and my children well, you know I struggle with my kids eating! I have VERY picky eaters and I am not ashamed of it though I do feel judged at times when people ask me what I pack my kids for lunch daily.

So now you are curious right?!
Snacks: while I do always try to pack a fruit, likely it will come back untouched (depending on their moods that morning), crackers of every sort, and any kind of snack that hides a vegetable in them.
Main lunch: cold dry toast, cold toasted waffles and any and every kind of cereal that you can imagine (no sugar cereals as they are not allowed in my house)

Yup, THE STRUGGLE IS REAL FRIENDS!!!!!!!!

I was offered the chance to try out the kids Simply Protein kids bars and although I was slightly worried about having them try something new (that is no easy task), I love Simply Protein’s bars for myself so I figured I would give it a shot. Of course, I had to try it out to make sure they were “mom” approved and I have to say I really liked them!

Note: Keep in mind that all my reviews are my honest opinions. If I don’t like it, I don’t review it PERIOD THE END

What I love about Simply Protein Kids Bar
The texture is close to a Krispy Bar (if you get what I am saying ;)) which is great for the picky eaters because the texture is familiar
It is very sweet appealing to the young audiences
– They are peanut free so safe for school lunch boxes
– Each bar has 4 grams of protein, has only 2 grams of sugar and 4 grams of fiber
– The ingredients are plant based
– They are kosher for those families who are observant or go to schools which only Kosher foods are allowed
– They are gluten free
– Come in 2 flavors: I tried the Strawberry Vanilla one, but there is also chocolate brownie which I am very curious to test out
– Doesn’t leave a weird after taste, but the strawberry vanilla flavor definitely lasts a bit in your mouth

Simply Protein

Check out your local grocery store to purchase a box and try them for yourselves

What’s a Stikbot? #FamilyGaming #Giveaway

Stikbots

What’s a Stikbot you ask? I certainly had the same question and to be quite honest, I was worried I wasn’t going to be overly impressed with this toy.

I’ve seen Stikbots around toy stores, but I just assumed they were a toy kids can stick on smooth surfaces and that’s about it (meh right). I was completely wrong in my assumption as there is a whole other part to these movable figurines. The new Stikbot Studio Pro has arrived and kids can take their imagination and creativity to a whole new level.

Stikbot Pro

 

Here’s how it works:
First, download the Zing Stikbot Studio app onto your phone (I was hoping you could use your tablet but if you want to use the tri-pod they provide you this is not an option as it only fits a phone). After spending some time clicking on the app buttons trying to get familiar with what you can do within the app, set up the green or blue stage (very easy to do – insert slits are pretty visible) that is provided. What’s the difference between the blue and green stage: if you have a green figure, you will not be able to see it on the green screen so flip it around and use the blue stage)

Stikbot Pro

Set your phone up on the tri-pod in front of the stage, open the app and either find a pre-loaded scene your little one wants to use to create their animated video or use of your own pictures as the back drop. Have your little one set up their Stikbots on the stage (they have suction cups on their hands and feet) using the added prop box (creating a 3-D effect) and take still photo’s. Once the photo’s have all been uploaded, the app will stitch them together into a film with built-in music and sound effect options. My kids had a blast once we figured it all out!

Stikbot Pro

New, born into the Stikbot family are the Stikbot Pets! Dogs, cats, cow, horse, gorilla, bear and monkeys will help add some extra fun to your kids videos!

Stikbot Pets

Where to Buy: Toys R Us and Walmart
Stikbot Studio Pro: $25.00
Stikbot Pets: $5.99

 

GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
Thank you to our friends at Zing they are giving away a Stikbot Studio Pro (comes with two Stikbots) to 1 lucky reader! The contest is open to US and Canadian residents. Here’s how to enter:

Have you Heard of the MomSneak? #Netflix

Netflix Canada

Have you ever found yourself sneaking away from your children just to have a few minutes to yourself with one of your guilty pleasures like watching a show you are addicted to on your tablet or in my case reading a book? Yes, there are times that I run into my bathroom, close the door and just sit on the floor reading my book just to have a few minutes to myself. Well apparently there is a name for it and it’s called the #MomSneak (makes sense). Every mother needs it even if it is just 5 minutes!!! It’s the new mom binge.

Netflix

I recently discovered a new Netflix show Friends from College that I am kind of addicted to and I would totally do the #MomSneak just to get a few minutes to watch everyday – is there such thing as a #WorkSneak 😉 Here’s a fun guide from a Netflix Survey of where moms are doing the #MomSneak

Tis the Season of Runny Noses #BoogieWipes #Giveaway

Boogie Wipes

I feel like I should be a spokesperson for Boogie Wipes because I LOVE them and have been using them for over 5  years on all the runny noses in my house! In fact, in winter I don’t leave home without a pack in my purse or bag because my kids have runny noses ALL winter! The minute that cool air hits my kids nose faucet turns on and there is no turning back. So if you are ever at a kids event or party with me and you need a Boogie Wipe, feel free to find me.

In the last two months, my mini has been sick three times and due to my extreme laziness (it’s winter give me a break) I had to use normal tissue because we ran out of our Boogie Wipes and let me tell you, that didn’t work out so well. After a day of constantly wiping his nose, it got so raw underneath and he would cry anytime I went near him with a tissue to wipe what seemed like Niagara Falls coming out of his nose.
Epic Mom fail!

Reason #1 to stock up with Boogie Wipes … your kid will end up love them too.

Boogie Wipes

What I love about Boogie Wipes
– Boogie Wipes are moistened with saline which actually helps break down those Boogies
– Moisturizes with Aloe, Vitamin E and Chamomile
– The wipes themselves are SUPER soft
– They come in great little travel packs with a hard cover so they don’t dry out
– Comes in three scents (well two really as one is unscented): Grape and Fresh Scent (Fresh Scent is my fave)
– The scent is not overpowering at all for those little noses
– They now have a hard case with refills for your “around the house” Boogie Wipes with a big easy-open button that kids can open themselves

GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
Thanks to our wonderful friends at Boogie Wipes, they are giving away a Boogie Wipes Gift Pack full of all their wonderful products. The contest is open to residents of Canada only. Here’s how to enter:

So don’t walk to stock your house up with Boogie Wipes … RUN!!!! Run as fast as you can, I promise you (well your little one really) will thank me 😉
Keep those little noses clean now that you know you are covered by Boogie Wipes

Unwrap Hasbro’s Hottest Toys #HolidayToyList

Furby Connect

Furby’s baaaaack and with a vengeance!!! Prior to getting the new Furby Connect to review, I was always curious about him. I mean how could you not, he is so damn cute and looks so lonely on the shelves sitting in that box (shame). When I heard that the new Furby Connect was one of Hasbro’s hot items for the 2016 Holidays, I was intrigued right away. I was sent one to test out and my kids went apeS^&T, in fact he started a huge fight with my kids because both my boys wanted to play with him at the same time (what’s new).

Furby Connect

Now for those of you who have had the previous Furby I can happily say that now he now has an off button (well sort of) it’s his sleep mask. Once you put that sleep mask onto Furby he immediately falls asleep. If you are wondering if he wakes up ever with the sleep mask on that is a NO, when that thing is on he is OFF!

We (including me) couldn’t get enough of him. He dances (he moves from side to side and his ears move around as well), he laughs, he farts, he burbs (I mean what more could you want from a toy) and talks to you (he has over 1000 phrases). The most interesting part of all is that you download the Furby Connect app and through Bluetooth your Furby toy and app communicate (FYI you have to pair them first – read the directions when you get it) and while you are playing the game Furby knows what is going on and helps you along the way providing you helpful hints). He has a real time clock causing Furby to react differently at different times of the day.

Furby Connect

My kids love that his eyes are full colour digital displays so when he has hearts in his eyes he is happy and when he is hungry and you feed him (you just stick your finger in his mouth) his eyes will show you what he is eating. It really is a blast and your kids will love it.

Where to Buy: Toys R Us
Current Price: $39.99

Dreamwork’s Trolls Glitterific Guy Diamond 

After seeing the movie, my kids are Troll obsessed which doesn’t surprise me considering when I was little I collected Trolls and funny enough a year ago (before we even knew about the movie) my mom brought them out for the boys to play with and loved them. Glitterific Guy Diamond is a 14″ poseable figure which is great for those little one’s who have a very active imagination. He is glittery from head to toe, comes with sunglasses and a comb to style his crazy hair. These Trolls have come a long way since my days!

Now time time to run out and grab these and put smiles on your little one’s faces like you can see are on mine

The Toy that will Make your Kids Laugh #HolidayToyList

Sing-A-Ma-Ling's

I was recently introduced to a new toy called Sing-A-Ma-Lings and when I mentioned these cute toys to a friend thinking they were new, she looked at me as if I was crazy for not knowing them!

I gave these funny looking yet totally adorable little things a go, handed them to my mini toy reviewer and let him decide if they were worthy enough of his time. Within 2 minutes of figuring them out, he was belly laughing because the Sing-A-Ma-Lings (we got 2 of them) were talking in their own funny language … TO EACH OTHER.  They communicate! He was so fascinated by them singing together that he tried to have them FaceTime to see if they can do the same thing over the phone

Sing-A-Ma-Ling Toy

I played around with them for a bit (during my mini’s nap time because there was no way I was laying a hand on them when he was up) and figured out there are three modes of play: Harmony (they harmonize together), Jibber Jabber (they talk in their funny language together) and Song (each one sings a word of a song together). Combine any of the 6 Sing-A-Ma-Lings and enjoy listening to them harmonize together.

This is definitely on my hot toy list for the holidays!
