Okay, it's Christmas and I think Hasbro cornered the 'IT' market for Christmas with their Play All Day Elmo and their Pie Face Game. Of course they have a million other great selections too, Hasbro always does, but those two I think are going to be under the Christmas Trees this year, more than any other toys. Just my own personal guess from hearing people talk in person and on social media.
The Playskool Sesame Street Playlay All Day Elmo is huge, he's cute and he does a ton of fun things. He's an interactive favorite-character plush at its finest. My favorite thing about him is he's soft, not hard to touch like some interactive toys can be.
Little ones love watching Elmo play with his friends on Sesame Street. Now it's their turn to play along with Elmo: Meet Play All Day Elmo! This cuddly and interactive Elmo toy has over 150 responses, plus 8 games and activities to help keep kids engaged. When playtime is over, preschoolers can cuddle with him while listening to a lullaby.
Play All Day in Toddler or Preschool Mode: Elmo has 2 modes of play to encourage both younger and older children to have fun. In Toddler mode, young children can enjoy basic cause-and-effect play, like tickling Elmo or squeezing his nose to see how he might respond. In Preschool mode, preschoolers and Elmo can take play to the next level with games and activities. They can play pat-a-cake, wiggle and giggle through a freeze dance, stop and go through a game of "Red light, Green light," and more! Elmo's built-in sensors help him respond to different activities in fun ways; he can react when he's in the air, when he's upside down, and even when he's moving around. Ages 18 mos - 4yrs.
The second 'IT' toy that I think is huge this year is the 'Pie Face' game. This is one my son has been beeeeeeggging for, and thank goodness he's going to get. And boy, is he ever going to get it, hehehe. I love the concept of this game too, but you might want to play this one at the kitchen table, or even outside. ;)
The exciting Pie Face game is filled with fun and suspsense, and somebody is bound to get splatted! Just put some delicious whipped cream from home or the wet sponge on the 'hand' of this hilarious game unti and start turning the handles. It could go off at any time, so keep your fingers crossed and hope you're not hte one who gets a splat in the face! You score a point for every time you turn the handle without getting pie-faced, and the one who scores 25 points wins. Take some risks and hope for the best in this hilarious Pie Face game! Includes 1 pie thrower, 1 throwing arm, 2 handles, chin rest, splash guard mask, spinner and sponge. Ages 5+
The new Playmation is in a word, AMAZING!! This is like taking a video game out of the video game and having your kids run around in a movie scene all at one time. What do I mean? I mean your child gets to strap on the repulsor, get orders from Jarvis and run around ducking, rolling and saving the world as he engages in Avenger battle. My son played this for 3 hours straight when he first put it on. This is definitely worthy of being an 'it' toy this year! It was a huge hit with the neighbor kids, and my son hasn't stopped talking about it since it arrived. I've never seen anything like this one, it's a fun new way to engage in active play. You can get the kids off of the couch, happily, when you bring something like this in the house.
The starter kit comes with what you see in the picture above. Two words of warning, and believe me, these don't deter from the toy because the kids love it so much, but you're going to want to know... Frist, the volume is high, but you can easily adjust it. You'll want to know that after an hour goes by with movie-like sound effects booming all over your house. And two, it takes 12 AA batteries. Worth it to invest in some rechargeables for sure.
So there's my 'it' toy list for the holiday. We're loving all of these, and betting you will too. It is my guess that most everyone with kids is going to have something Hasbro under the tree this year, and there's a very good reason for that: Loving Hasbro for the Holidays. #PlayLikeHasbro
