My girls and I love Hello Kitty! I collect stuffed animals and figures of my favorite characters and Hello Kitty is one of them. I was so excited when Hallmark sent me one of the new Hello Kitty itty bittys® – and it is adorable! I absolutely love it, and have been proudly displaying it on my desk ever since it arrived. My daughters love her so much that they try to steal her at least three times a day.
Celebrate 60 years of creative Play-Doh fun with the classic Doctor Drill ‘n Fill set! For decades this guy has helped the idea of going to the dentist feel more fun with lots of silly dentist-themed activities kids can enjoy again and again. Start the patient’s appointment by shaping some teeth with the tooth molds. Fight cavities by giving them a buzz with the electric drill and filling them in with more Play-Doh compound! Add some braces with the roller, and keep the patient’s teeth nice and clean by squeezing some pretend toothpaste through the toothbrush. And to celebrate the Play-Doh brand’s long history of inspiring kids’ imaginations, we’ve given our mustached friend a makeover with exclusive retro-style packaging that’s sure to bring us all back to the good ol’ days.
We are a Disney family through and through. One of our favorite newer Disney movies is Zootopia. I think the message is great for kids – you can be who you want to be. The movie itself is funny, entertaining, and great for adults as well as kids. My mom was recently visiting us and she hadn’t seen it, so of course we watched it. She laughed, she cried – she really enjoyed it. Because this is one of their favorite films, my girls have several Zootopia figures. They love their Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, as well as little Toot Toot. Recenly, thanks to TOMY, we got the new Zootopia Police Station Playset – and boy were they excited. They now had a place to play with all their figures and the scenarios they come up with are amazing.
Today is My Little Pony Friendship Day! And to help celebrate, I have put together some of the best MLP toys out there! My girls are huge fans of the show and movies, so they know what they are talking about when they recommend these! Enjoy!
I have 3 and 5 year old daughters, so of course, there is a strong love of dolls in our house. They each have their favorites that they carry around with them everywhere. A couple of years ago for my oldest’s birthday, she received two Our Generation dolls. She was so sweet and instantly gave one to her little sister so they could each have one. These dolls have been through the ringer, but have really held up. They have been on family vacations with us and have slept in my girls’ beds nearly every night since they came to our house. Right around Christmas time, we got the Our Generation Kitchen Set (which I included in my 2015 Gifts for Kids Holiday Gift Guide) and it has been a huge hit.

Today is National Yo-Yo Day and to help celebrate, I want to give a Blazing Team Beast Wrangler Yo-Yo away to one lucky reader! My husband has some serious yo-yo skills – which is more than I can say for myself. I wish I stuck with it when I was younger because what is more fun than showing off some cool yo-yo moves to your friends? He has been working with my daughters and my oldest has great potential – she has even pulled off a trick or two! I am sure we will be out on our patio tonight practicing to participate in #NationalYoYoDay!
