Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house the wee creatures were stirrin in fact they were nuts.
I don’t know about you, but just about the only thing keeping me sane is that the kids are in school all this week. If you are sneaking in a few last minute shopping trips while their teachers are tasked with keeping the kids busy, these are a few gift ideas for all the kids in your life.
For the little science and STEM loving kid you must pick up some VEX robotics kits. These challenging and fun building projects will keep your little robotics lover busy. HEXBUG is helping to bridge the gap by introducing STEM toys to girls, fostering an appreciation of the sciences at a very young age in order to create a lifelong passion. See our video review here and then pick them up in stores like Mastermind Toys. $17+

If your kids are little gamers then we can’t say enough about the Skylanders universe. It’s great for kids of all ages to play together and it’s been a favourite of ours for years. The newest evoloution, Skylanders Imaginators, is the perfect gift idea for the Portal Master who already has portals from previous Skylanders games — Skylanders® SuperChargers, Skylanders® Trap Team, Skylanders® SWAP Force™ or Skylanders® Giants.
This game is especially fun because players can bring their imaginations to life by creating their own Skylanders. Pick up Skylanders Imaginators where video games are sold for around $90.
When it comes to girls, if your loves princesses then they are going to love the DISNEY PRINCESS ROYAL DREAMS CASTLE. This enchanting playset is over 3 feet tall and features 4 furnished rooms of fun! Each room is themed around a Princess — Snow White’s kitchen, Belle’s library and ballroom, Sleeping Beauty’s bedroom, and Ariel’s bathroom. Nineteen accessories – a bathtub, bed, bed canopy ring, soft canopy curtain, 5 kitchen utensils, kettle, pot, cup, stove, seat, Snow White’s pie, plate with pie, shampoo bottle, soap, chandelier, and clock – make for seemingly endless fairy tale fun. There’s even a magic carpet elevator ride for Jasmine – just lift the handle and then release to see the carpet glide down! Dolls sold separately.
The castle is perfect for pretend play with all of the Disney Princess Dolls from Hasbro. Visit our Youtube Channel to see my daughter’s reviews of most of the dolls from our #DreamBigPrincess year of reviews. Pick it up at your favourite toy store. $99-$149
