I recently attended a Hasbro Cocktail party featuring all the latest trends on toys, crafts and games. Growing up, Hasbro was always a go to name when looking for the best games. They have you covered for boys and girls in every age group. The best part is that they always have something for the whole family to get involved playing.
Below are some toys that you want to keep an eye out for as we move into the holiday season.
Start planning for the holiday season and plan ahead if you want to have some smiling faces and surprised kids. These toys will keep them entertained for hours on end and will certainly let their imaginations run wild.
LET’S IMAGINE ELMO TOY Let’s Imagine Elmo is trying on different fun hats, and he’s inviting your little one to sing, count, and play along with him! Whether he’s a counting cowboy, playful prince, singing sea-captain, or just being himself, Elmo has 4 playful interactive modes with games, songs, and actions.
Elmo lets everyone in on the play! He is so soft and cuddly who can’t resist holding him and following along on his adventures.
Let’s Imagine Elmo – is prefect for ages 2-4 and retails for about $39.99
Next up is a favorite of mine from the event. DohVinci is a stylish trendsetting new way of crafting, it is like using a hot glue gun without the heat and allows you to choose which color “glue” or deco pop you would like to for your designs. Below are some great ways to decorate the prepackaged gift sets. Each set comes with everything you need.
Who doesn’t like to craft or decorate and with the DohVinci Deluxe Styler? I was able to decorate a frame in no time. With the interchangeable decorating tips you can make hearts, butterflies and other 3D images. If you don’t like the design you made you can simply wipe it off and start over. Just let the Deco Doh dry and you can now display your art work!
DohVinci sets are recommended for ages 6 and up and might need some adult assistance and patience. Prices range from $3.99- $19.99.
The Littlest Pet Shop is a big hit with my nieces and they were so excited to see that I got to be in a photo with Russell Furguson.
I love that these toy sets can easily store all the Pets making for easy clean up but that they make little towns as well. Each new set can keep the adventures going on forever. You can also purchase pets separately.
I was so excited to see a blast from the past making a comeback Simon Swipe
Swipe the lights to conquer the colors in this challenging Simon Swipe game! To be the champion swiper, just tap when you see one light, swipe when there are two, and swipe and reverse when the lights move clockwise and then go back. The game starts out easy and then builds to 16 blazing levels. With 4 games to choose from, whether you practice on your own or challenge a friend, you’ll have to be at the top of your game to defeat Simon Swipe!
And last but not least was the NERF N-STRIKE ELITE DEMOLISHER 2-IN-1 BLASTER
This Nerf action toy was so much fun to use as with all Nerf products the missiles are soft but I would recommend playing outside or in an area large enough so that valuables around the house don’t get broken. This will certainly be a big hit for the boys and even the girls. This Nerf product retails for $39.99 and is for 8 and up age group.
I hope you enjoyed checking out some new toys that are on the market.
