t’s that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you’re like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!) 

For the 2016 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don’t we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2016 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day! 

Today, I want to talk about TOYS! 

Yep. Toys are the one thing that seems to be on everyone’s shopping list, and Hasbro has some absolutely incredible gift ideas for children of all ages. They offer the best toys for boys and girls, and even some fun, family games that can help you to connect with loved ones and enjoy the spirit of the season. 

We received some amazing Hasbro toys to check out for ourselves, and I’d love to share them with you. We have gorgeous Disney Elena of Avalor Dolls, a super-fierce Optimus Prime toy, and even Bop It!, a great family game designed for the quick thinkers out there. Keep reading to learn more about each of these gift ideas. 


Elena of Avalor is the adventurous Crown Princess. Her sister, Isabel of Avalor, has an inventive and scientific mind that balances Elena of Avalor’s impulsive nature, and helps the Crown Princess protect the Kingdom of Avalor. With this sister 2-pack, girls can pretend to join Elena of Avalor and Isabel of Avalor on magical adventures in their enchanted kingdom. These beautiful fashion dolls come dressed in their TV series-inspired dresses, complete with fun, removable accessories – a book for Isabel of Avalor that opens and she can hold, a belt, hairclips, shoes, and earrings!

Includes 2 dolls, 2 outfits, 2 pairs of shoes, hairclip, hair bow, belt, clip, plastic book, and pair of earrings.

• Introducing Disney’s Elena of Avalor
• Includes 2 dolls
• Dolls come with removable fashion accessories

• Ages 3 and up
• WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD – Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
• Dolls do not stand on their own.
• Poses may require additional support.

Both of my littles absolutely adore these dolls! Yes, I allow my son to play dollies with his sister. Don’t hate. Anything that brings them together and allows them to play without wanting to kill each other is A-Okay in my book! 

Anyway, these dolls are loads of fun, and come complete with accessories like hairclips, shoes, etc. My little ones love acting out their favorite Princess stories with these dolls. I love the fact that the shoes are easy to get on, and they really STAY on….Nothing worse than lost doll shoes! 

These dolls would be great for your Disney Princess fans! 


In the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series, Bumblebee leads a team of Autobots. Their mission: capture Decepticons who are loose on Earth … and do it without being discovered. Join Bumblebee and his team and help them chase down Decepticons with Transformers: Robots in Disguise figures! 

The Autobots have discovered a powerful group of Mini-Con allies. These Mini-Con Weaponizers bots not only convert to weapons – they give other bots a Power Surge to use in battle. Optimus Prime links with the Mini-Con Aerobolt to activate Power Surge mode, then uses his wings and flight power to battle in the air! 

Hit the Decepticons with a super-charged attack with Power Surge Optimus Prime! The 11-inch tall figure comes with a Mini-Con Weaponizers Aerobolt figure and battles in 4 modes. It features pop-out cannons and wings, lights, phrases, and sounds – activated by attaching the included Aerobolt Mini-Con Weaponizers figure. Attach different Mini-Con Weaponizers figures (each sold separately) to activate different sounds. 

Experience 4 exciting modes of play: robot mode, vehicle mode, flight mode, and Power Surge mode! The Mini-Con Weaponizers Aerobolt figure works as a shield or weapon in each mode. Flight mode features flying sounds, and Power Surge mode unleashes the figure’s full feature set. 

Okay, so this is absolutely AWESOME-SAUCE, in the words of my kiddos. This Transformers figure is very cool, and allows kids to play using 4 different modes. There are lights and sounds, including Transformers phrases. This toy definitely keeps the kids busy, since there are a lot of different ways to play. They even like to play with the Disney dolls, pretending they’re in trouble…Of course, Optimus Prime comes in to save the day. 

Twist it! Bop it! Answer it? Selfie it? Hammer it? This updated Bop It! game is enhanced with new action-oriented Bop It! moves for today’s modern gamer. Bop It! game uses move it motion technology to test players and see if they’ve got the skills to master Bop It! game. The ten moves are: whip it, drink it, selfie it, hammer it, answer it, cradle it, saw it, sing it, golf it, and comb it. The Bop It! game is a portable game for on-the-go fun. It features 3 solo and social play options: Classic, Beat Box, and Pass It. For one of more players.

Includes Bop It! game unit and instructions.

•Updated with 10 fun moves, including whip it, cradle it, and sing it
•3 exciting modes
•Each mode offers solo or group play

•Ages 8 and up
•For 1 or more players
•3 x 1.5V AAA alkaline batteries required. Demo batteries included

If you haven’t ever played Bop It!, go out and grab this game! Seriously, DO IT! This game is so much fun, and the entire family can play! This is sort of like the old-school game, Simon….But it’s a lot more complex, since rather than repeating a sequence of lights, you repeat actions. Drink it, Selfie it, Hammer it, etc…It’s fun to try and keep up! In our family, Sophie is the Bop It! Queen with a high score of 37. If you want to have a lot of laughs, definitely check this out. We absolutely love it!
