Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I hope not because you want to run back out quickly once you see what I’m sharing with you today! This year, we are making this Christmas a Hasbro Christmas and we are doing things a bit differently! Follow along below to see how you too can Make This Christmas a Hasbro Christmas.
Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Hasbro Canada. As always, opinions are all my own.
Hasbro is one of those brands that you know and love! We do too as a family, and that is why this year we’ve decided to change things up drastically. This year, my older kids are getting one item that is pricey and the rest are clothes, while the kids under 10 will be getting 3 gifts (toys) and the rest will be clothes! The last 5 Christmases I’ve really spoiled my kids and I learned really quickly that not only did they not appreciate it but they also weren’t able to fully take in what the whole meaning of giving and receiving. When they get a ton of gifts, all of which they really want and just had to have – what does that really teach them?
So, by giving a little less this year we are hoping that they’ll appreciate what they got and that they will fully be able to take in and appreciate that the gifts selected for them and given to them are exactly what they want and need, not just want for the sake of wanting.
This year, we partnered with Hasbro and each child 10 and under will be getting 1 gift I carefully selected from Hasbro just for them under the tree and I am thrilled to share with you everything today, in hopes you may take the less is more approach their year and give gifts that will not only be appreciated but cherished, played with and loved!
let’s begin, shall we?
(note: we carefully took these products out of package for photos but will be putting them back and wrapping for under the tree!)
First up we have Mia. She’s turning 21 months old on January 1st so not much is needed for Mia to be entertained but that didn’t stop me from picking out this adorable furReal Walkalots Big Wags. They are for kids a little older, but we all know how that works out with the younger siblings. They always take them and make them theirs anyway, so it was fitting and the perfect choice for little Mia!
furReal Walkalots Big Wags pets feature a connectible system that lets kids walk one at a time or their favorite pack all at once. Cuddly pets come with a two-part detachable leash for walking across the floor, as well as a connector to add up to two Walkalots Lil’ Wags pets (sold separately). Push pets along by the leash and they’ll move forward with wobbling heads, signature bouncy walk, and spring-activated tail motion. They also make pet sounds and funny noises, making the walk feel that much more real. Shall we take a stroll around the house? It sounds like SO much fun!
Second, Hanna! I chose an adorable Baby Alive for her. She LOVES baby dolls, and is always taking walking around with her babies and asking me to put them in my wraps or carriers so when I saw Baby Alive Carry ‘n Go Squad, I knew Hanna had to have one for herself as she LOVES when we babywear her and now she gets to carry her baby, too!
Meet the Littles by Baby Alive: a playful squad of busy toddlers with LOTS to do! And they need YOU to plan their adventures! Is it a fun-in-
the-sun picnic at the playground? A rainboots-romp through the park? A super-star fashion show with the whole Littles squad? Get ready to go-go-GO, because the Littles love to dress UP, step OUT, and get MOVING! Where will you take your Littles today? Each doll sold separately. Available styles: Blonde Hair, Brunette Hair, and Black Hair.
Next up, Justin! Our six-year-old with spunk. This guy is HARD to entertain. So, I thought what better way than to get him the Porcupine Pop Preschool Board Game. He loves playing games, and having his siblings or mom and dad join in. So, it was a perfect choice for him and he also may have seen it online and requested it, too!
Who will make the porcupine pop? This exciting kids’ game combines simple play with silliness and suspense. Roll the die, press the porcupine’s nose that number of times, and hope his darts don’t fly out. No one knows when that will happen, and the only player not to make the porcupine pop wins. Kids can switch up the gameplay and try a round where whoever makes him pop first wins. Or try a game where each dart color is assigned points and when the porcupine pops, players race to grab as many darts as they can, and the player with the most points wins.
Next, we have our sweet little Jackson. He is always asking me if we can play Monopoly as it’s one of our favorite family game night games, and he has such a great time playing. So, I figured it was only perfect to also get him a game we can enjoy with him for his favorite nights of the week, so Plumber Pants was my choice!
Oh no…the plumber is fixing a clog under the sink and he’s getting pranked! His pants just might fall down…and that means everyone gets sprayed with water! In this Plumber Pants game, players take turns raiding his toolbox and loading the tools onto his belt. Be careful! If the plumber’s pants fall down on a player’s turn, water will spray from the sink, and that player will be out. The only player not to make his pants fall down wins.
Lastly, even though he’s 10 I am still including Jayden because this guy has been through a tough little while and when I saw this next toy it had Jayden’s name written all over it – Disney The Lion King Mighty Roar Simba, Interactive Plush Toy.
The Disney The Lion King Mighty Roar Simba Interactive Plush Toy embodies all the fun, charm, and humor of animation’s most famous lion cub – and now he can come along with you on all-new
adventures! Roar at each other (who’s the loudest?), play together and give him his treat (you may prefer, umm, a different snack for yourself!). And be sure to give your Pride Lands pal lots of hugs… after all, even a king likes to cuddle!
