Toys, Games and Fun for ALL

Hot for the holidays (once again) are Hatchimals! My kiddo was over the moon excited when this Hatchimals Advent Calendar arrived. Not only did it mean she was getting a present early, it meant she was getting a present every day from now until Christmas! Which is when I told her she had to wait for to get the other Hatchimals gifts that Spinmaster sent us. Yep, I'm that mom. Even though she had already seen it she was gonna have to wait.

The good folks over at Spinmaster also sent me a nice selection of Twisty Petz, an Airhog SUPERNOVA, and The Dog Game for me to share with you this holiday season. All of those items are being used for a family we "adopted" for the holidays. I am positive the little girl and the boy in the family will both be ecstatic when they open their awesome gifts Christmas morning!
