Mama’s Holiday Hot Toy Gift Guide 2013

 


Hasbro FurReal Friends TrixieFURREAL FRIENDS TRIXIE, THE SKATEBOARDING PUP PetSkateboarding Remote Control Puppy

The coolest canine to hit the half-pipe, FURREAL FRIENDS TRIXIE, THE SKATEBOARDING PUP pet is an adorable show-off pet that puts kids in control and brings lots of silly, laugh-out-loud fun. Children can pose their TRIXIE, in more than 30 positions on her hot pink skateboard. An easy-to-use two button remote control rides Trixie’s skateboard forward, backward, and even in circles. Every skateboarding star needs a soundtrack for her performance, and cool music and puppy sounds will play from the remote. After a day of riding, Trixie can come off her board for cuddle time. {I love that Trixie comes off her board for cuddle time and just isn’t a toy that does one thing, children lose interest after the novelty wears off and then the toy is banished to some box in the basement, but with Trixie she has staying power. She has a lot going for her with how cute and soft she is, to the musical rides as she entertains and she has a community online to communicate with other FurReal Friends!} www.HasbroToyShop.com

Girls can also store their Zelfs in the playset once the Venus Fly Trap Salon snaps shut! {I had to Google this one, because I had no idea what a Zelf was, besides thinking they were adorable. Here is what I found for those of you that are like me, and have no idea… ‘The Zelfs’ live in an enchanted garden full of surprises called Zardenia. They dwell in different fabitats tucked all over the garden…in the trees, mounds of rocks and even dark corners’ There’s lots more about them out there too. Many collect all types of Zelfs and each as a special power when loved. I will say the hair didn’t twist as easily or neatly as the photo shows, but still this is a winner with all the cool drawers and hair accessories. Who doesn’t want their Zelf to be able to go the hair salon. No batteries needed!!! Awesome toy!}

I found out that a lot of boys love trucks, all types of trucks, including trash trucks. They also like to crush and launch things. This toy does all that and more, so at first a skeptic now I’m sold your child will enjoy this toy if they are into the activities I just described.}

 fun educational geography of the United States toy by Little Passports

Recommended age 7 to 12 years old.

{My daughter has been receiving the Little Passports World Edition  (link to another post I did on Little Passports) for almost a year and just started the United States Edition about 6 months ago. As a teacher, I myself was concerned if she was being confused her by doing them both at the same time or by starting the countries before the states. Now I think doing both programs at the same time actually allows for so many teachable moments of similarities and differences between states, states and countries and the world in general and for understanding the concept that “The United States” is just one of many countries that make up the entire “The World”. She & I talk about so many concepts, just this week we discussed the continents when “India” arrived and they mentioned it looks like a slice of pizza at the bottom of the Asian Continent. So of course, I brought up the 7 continents she learned about in preschool last year….we pointed them all out by name as we talked about why we use “continents” as a way of grouping countries on the world map and she quickly located “India”, the slice of pizza, and put the little push pin sticker on so proudly…I’m even smiling now as I remember the moment, I was so proud of her. This program is so much fun and a must get for any child you know no matter what the age, you can use as much or as little of the program as they are ready for. My daughter isn’t ready for the worksheets or the online activities just yet, but I save the boarding passes and the worksheets along with everything else her pen pals send for when she is ready for those parts of the program because I’ll go back and do them with her! As a parent and a teacher, this product should be used in classrooms everywhere, it brings fun to a lot of confusing concepts for children and fun always equals learning and remembering! Mom is even remembering!}

 

 

animal realistic replicas SafariLtdHand Painted Replica by SafariLtd

Safari takes pride in the realism of replicas. Every detail, from the texture of an animal’s fur to the glass-like appearance of its eyes, is designed for accuracy. Replicas are also individually hand-painted. It is our dedication to authenticity and education that sets our replicas apart in the industry. Each purchase of our products has accompanying educational information that can be found on our website. The selection of replicas is so huge the catalog (which is beautiful itself to look through) is almost an inch thick full of every animal you can think of, different human and magical replicas, famous buildings, landmarks and so much more.

 

TOOBS
Safari Ltd. TOOBS® packaging makes their sets a great choice for traveling. The tube container is an easy way to keep your child’s toys together without taking up too much space packing. Each tube is an assortment of whatever collection your child loves, whether it’s a specific animal, a category of animals (dinosaurs, birds of the world, farm animals, reptiles, sea animals, etc), humans such as warriors and knights, babies, musical instruments, landmarks, buildings of the world and so much more.

 

Peacock
This Peacock replica spreads its magnificent tail feathers, showing off its shimmering colors. The gift of flight comes to life in the Wings of the World collection. This group features some of the most vivid colors and intricate details of any models. Like all Safari Ltd® toys, our winged friends are professionally sculpted, individually hand painted, and value priced. Collectors, bird lovers, and children can all find inspiration from these lively replicas.


{I may keep this one replica for me, it’s beautiful & I love peacocks. I have been giving TOOBs to children as gifts since before my own child was born almost 6 years ago. These replicas have caught my eye in whatever store they were displayed. You know which ones I’m writing about, because you just can’t help to stop and take in the attention to detail and beauty of at least a few of the pieces when walking past}.

Awareness of Autism through Starabella Books & Music

Starabella

Starabella is a new series of award-winning, narrated musical picture books for kids ages 2-8 about a very courageous little girl with learning differences who expresses her thoughts and feelings through music. When she is happy, her eyes shine like stars. Though the Starabella books are based on a little girl with autism, the stories appeal to anyone who has felt different. Starabella demonstrates the special gifts children with extra challenges often bring to the world. Starabella shows children that we are all special and allows them to feel empathy, enabling them to make positive social choices rather than turning to bullying and discrimination. {It’s my opinion after reviewing these books that they not only send extremely urgent information into society as so many children relate to these stories and with amazing stories like Starabella’s being read to children/students, we can help change the way children interact with one another, but they are also a hit with readers…my daughter loved following along as a beginning reader in Kindergarten! These books are wonderful for new readers as children can follow along by listening to the CD, which has lots of sections to keep the children on the page they need to be. At the end of the book are all the lyrics for the songs sung throughout the book for you and your child to learn and sing together. More experienced readers will enjoy the book with or without the CD!}

Link to all products related to the best label maker  {I find this label maker extremely valuable when I label clothing, shoes, costumes, dress-up, coats along with toys sport’s equipment, school supplies and books that leave the house…this way whoever finds them (or if there is a question as to which child owns what…lol) always knows who to return the item too…which I know saves money, because I don’t have to buy the lost item again. I even use labels when I’m loaning out things of my own, such as books, etc. I love the different label maker color tapes I can use for fun! This Brother PT-D200 adapter instead of using batteries.}

Kevin Johnson, Ventriloquist at Bristol Riverside Theatre Today was a HIT!


Kevin Johnson, Ventriloquist at Bristol Riverside Theater Today was a HIT!

 

 Kevin Johnson’s Show at Bristol Riverside Theatre rocked!

Today my daughter and I received tickets to attend the 3pm show at the Bristol Riverside Theatre, having never been to a ventriloquist show, I had no idea what to expect and to be honest I wasn’t expecting to be laughing out loud….so I was surprised, when I was laughing out loud most of the show, as was the rest of the audience too. Kevin Johnson Ventriloquist did a wonderful job of blending content to cover the wide variety of ages that were at the show from as young as my 5 year old daughter to at least an 80 year old or two. Everyone enjoyed the show equally. Kevin even used 3 children from the audience and one adult that received signed photographs of him and his characters.

It was amazing trying to see his mouth move and the dialogue he was capable of having with himself and 2 characters at one time. It doesn’t surprise me that Kevin was on the Leno Show as well as America’s Got Talent, because he is truly gifted and should keep going, because he deserves all the accolades that he has coming.

 

My daughter says: I liked it, I love it (why?) I liked that it was funny. What was your favorite character? The pink haired (Matilda). I have to agree, she rocked it and stole the show in my eyes. I loved her. I feel like she is Kevin’s alter ego super fun frisky side.

Taken from the website about the theatre: Bristol Riverside Theatre (BRT) is a professional regional theatre in the historic district of Bristol Borough. The theatre, located in a renovated movie house, combines the excitement of a large stage with the intimacy of a 300-seat theater, along with outstanding lighting and sound technology.

Book Review: Have You Ever Wondered About Angels, by Chris Alexandria


Book Review:

Have You Ever Wondered About Angels, by Chris Alexandria

Angels

Have You Ever Wondered About Angels, by Chris Alexandria and illustrated by Alex Levitos is a brand new book that explains the basic concepts of Angels in the sweetest of a story.

Lets let my daughter’s quote speak for itself (she’s only 5), she made me read it twice in a row to her as soon as we received it, she LOVED this new book.

“I love it, I want to read it all night. It’s the best book I ever heard. My mom chose this book for my bedtime story and I didn’t think I would love it so much, but I did”, Mama Chrissy’s Five Year Old Daughter!

 

Mama Chrissy too thought this book was beautifully written as well as illustrated. Kudos to both Chris & Alex for an amazing book!

You can find this book online at Chris Alexanderia’s, Angel Chatter website, Amazon or many of the mind, body, spirit expos’s she attends. Chris does much more than write children’s books. She is guided by angels to help us in many, many ways. It was my pleasure to meet her in person last year and she was quite the presence and had a long last effect on me and I’m please to be honored to review this new children’s book and look forward to all her future work, because she has found her path and is helping people like me everyday and I love helping people like her help even more people…even if it’s just one more person….doesn’t matter to me, that just means it was only meant to help one. However, I know in my heart she and I are both here for much more than that! This is just the beginning!

Light & Love to all of you!!! Many, Many Blessings & Namaste!

Mama Chrissy
