Harry The Electronic Pet Dog

Harry, the Electronic Pet Dog is a great substitute for an actual puppy.

You don’t have to feed and walk Harry, just touch him and he launches into a list of activities that your toddler will love.

Harry is about 7-inches long and 6-inches tall.

He barks, walks and makes other little puppy sounds.

He is made in the form of a Dalmatian dog and your toddler will soon learn where to touch him to keep him going.

Plus, this pet dog talks and sings.

“How Much is That Doggie In the Window” is one of his favorites.

Your toddler will soon learn that different things happen when he touches different parts of the dogs body.

Kiki Money 24 Inch Elephant Pillow

Down time is an important part of a toddler’s daily activities.

They play hard and rest hard.

When it is time to rest, your toddler will love to cuddle with KiKi Monkey a large 24-inch Elephant Pillow .

You can choose from six different colors for KiKi Elephant pillow – blue, grey, red, pink, purple and yellow.

It is so soft and plush plus it is ecologically safe for baby.

There is no fading and it is lint free, too.

 

Plush Toys

Choose from a wide variety of plush toys for your toddler and begin a tradition that will go on through the teen years and beyond.

They make great decorative items for a kid’s room and add color and whimsy too.

I still have many of my plush toys from childhood.

WolVol Sturdy Car Toy

Shape sorting toys are an essential toy for early childhood development as far as I am concerned, but this one does so much more!

It is an actual car with flashing lights and music!

In addition to teaching shapes there are a few numbers, letters and fruits that your child can be taught about.

I love the bright vibrant colors too.

It does require 3 AA batteries to operate and there is an option to attach a string to the front of the car but it does not come with batteries or the string.

The toy is still fun even without batteries.

The happy smiley face is fantastic!

It makes me feel happy so I am sure a child would feel the same way when they look at or play with it.

It is a great choice for teaching hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.

The toy is very sturdy and large enough for a toddler to be able to get a good grip on it.

I love that the back hatch opens up so the shapes can be easily removed.

This is a great toy and I highly recommend it for any young child whose parents want a teaching toy that is fun.

Wolvol Adorable Mini Fire Truck Toy

I love that this mini fire truck toy speaks the names of various rescue departments in both English and Spanish in addition to playing those sounds.

What a great way for kids to learn a second language!

It is a very sturdy toy that is large enough for a toddler to easily grab a hold of.

The bright colors are sure to attract your childs attention.

It does require 3 AA batteries and those do not come with it, but in my opinion your child could still have plenty of fun with toy even without batteries – just know the lights and sounds will not work.

The ladder on the top of the fire truck does raise and lower.

It does change direction when it bumps into something and the bump is not hard enough to damage anything as far as I am concerned.

There is also an option to turn off the sound if you wish.

This would make a great gift item and I really like it especially the big, cheerful smile on the front of the fire truck!

I had fun playing with with and I am sure the child I am gifting this too will love it as well.

WolVol Take A Part Train Toy

The WolVol Take-A-Part Train Toy comes with 2 screwdrivers that come apart so your child can use them manually or attach them to the electric drill that this toy comes with.

The cordless electric drill toy makes noises similar to a real cordless drill.

The electric drill does require 2 AA batteries that do not come with it.

There is an extension piece for the manual screwdrivers that doubles as a ratchet.

The entire train comes apart and your child can even remove the wheels.

All of the pieces including the plastic screws are plenty large enough for little hands to hold onto.

Any child who loves trains – or who loves taking things apart and putting them back together again – is going to love the WolVol Take-A-Part Train.

It definitely is going to help your child learn how things are put together and help with their hand-eye coordination.

My husband and I both thought this toy was really awesome.

The recommended age range for this toy – in my opinion – is 3 years old and older.

WolVol Steering Driving Wheel For Kids Toy

I wanted this for my granddaughter but wanted to test it out first myself.

Sometimes toys say they are for a certain age or sound really great but when you get right down to it, they aren’t quite what you expect.

That was not the case with the WolVol Steering Driving Wheel.

My husband and I were both quite impressed at the quality and durability of the product.

The suction cup was large and easy to press down. It was also easy to remove from the fold-up TV tray we attached it to.

While playing with it, the steering wheel did not come loose or move in any way.

The sounds were quite realistic. There is an on/off switch behind the steering wheel which I know parents are going to appreciate. the mirror is adjustable and will even point upwards towards your childs face.

There are working turn signals, a working horn, a working ignition and that is just the start.

Your child will have fun watching the car at the top of the toy drive from side to side as they turn the wheel.

It is a very nice toy and we enjoyed playing with it so I know my granddaughter will.

Springfield Boutique Doll Paige

Although the Springfield Boutique dolls are often compared to the American Girl dolls, they certainly are more affordable.

Paige is the first Springfield Boutique doll I have owned.

When I first decided to review her, I thought I would give her to my granddaughter.

Then she arrived dressed in a little pink gown.

She came with one outfit which by the way was a JoAnn Fabrics And Craft Store Exclusive.

I was so impressed by how well made she was, by how realistic she was and by the array of gorgeous outfits that I decided to keep her for myself.

Now of course I will let my grandbabies play with her, because after all, she is so soft and cuddly that I can’t imagine any child not wanting to hug her.

Her hands, legs and face are made of a hard material, however her body is soft – like a stuffed animal only not furry!

There are so many outfits available for her.

I chose an evening gown that came complete with shoes, gloves and a necklace.

Her hair is super soft – just like a real child’s hair and of course you can brush it.

Paige is 18 inches tall and is possible.

Both her arms and legs move so she will sit or stand.

Her eyes also open and close.

I am truly impressed by the quality of this doll and her outfits.

PicassoTiles 2 Piece Car Truck Set With Extra Long Bed & Re-Enforced Latch, Magnet Building Tile Magnetic Blocks

This is a really cute set of toys however there are only 2 pieces in this set so you do not get any tiles to build with.

However kids can still push these around and have fun with them.

I really like the clear blue and clear red colors.

The wheels move easily and the two pieces link together plus you can add even more pieces as you go along.

I think of these more as train cars so your child could pile toys or other items on top and push those around as well.

There are a number of magnets around the outer edges of these toys.

Those can be used with other PicassoTiles to create anything your child can dream up – cars, buildings, you name it.

Final Thoughts About The Toys And Games Gift Guide

Last year, all the toy fairs were packed so that the real scoop on the hottest toys was difficult to get.

This year, the search has gone onto an even deeper level of inside information, to source trend experts for their top opinions on which toys will top the holiday Christmas charts.

It means that planning ahead for Christmas is vital.

It is even more essential to shop before Black Friday so you get the toys and games your kids want!

Remember the 4 gift rule and you are sure to spend less, have less stress, as well as less overwhelmed children on Christmas morning, but way more fun and Christmas cheer, which is, after all what the holidays should be like.
