Charmazing Color Me Up Heart Collection
Every year, there’s some new crafty kids’ toy that comes out that becomes the “it” thing to showcase. One year it was rubberband bracelets. This year, it’s going to be the Charmazing Color Me Up Heart Collection.
This is a bracelet set for girls that are all about the charms! In each kit, which is priced right for parents as a Christmas gift this 2014 season, your daughter can make three bracelets in full, using a variety of craft items that come in the kits.
It’s going to be an amazing trend where girls can craft a one-of-a-kind bracelet by mixing and matching elements from the pack. There are six charms inside the pack, which represent peace, infinity love, key heart, forever love, BFFs, and peace dove.
There are also six energy cards from the Love Collection that detail all of the charms with their meanings. The cards go over the various charms, ranking them in terms of love, harmony, wellness, and fun.
So if your daughter has a best friend who is sick, she might make a bracelet for her with a charm that’s high in wellness. The behind-the-scenes meanings will be very important for the girls using these charm bracelets.
It also comes with any different beads to help you create your designs and the bracelets can be expanded and stacked with the collectible charms. The beads are beautiful and look like a mix of gold, fake diamonds, silver, pinkish and purplish stems.
It’s sure to be very sparkly and girly for the fashion-focused tweens who are into this kind of accessory. This toy is exclusive to Toys R Us, so you won’t be able to find it elsewhere and should go ahead and order early to make sure your child gets her kit this holiday season.
It’s an interactive toy, too – because your daughter can download a free app on iOS or Android to showcase their creations and share them with others. This is a good way for them to get design ideas, too.
What your child can do is scan the charms and it will allow them to play and use the App. The toy is perfect for ages 8 and up. It really is wonderful for the fashion and craft-minded girls out there! Make sure your gift recipient downloads the App from the Google Play or Apple App Store so they get the most out of it.
Disney Frozen Snow Glow Elsa
The song says “Let it go,” but there’s no way kids are going to let go of their dream of owning the Disney Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll this holiday season. It’s poised to become one of the most asked for toys of the 2014 Christmas year.
Frozen was a hit movie – one of Disney’s best ever according to today’s children. And Elsa is the main star of the show, so it makes sense that toys of her character will be a big hit.
What sets this particular doll apart is the fact that she has a magical necklace that she wears in the shape of a snowflake. The necklace plays the hit song “Let It Go” from the movie.
At the same time, if you raise her arm up, Elsa’s dress lights up as your child imagines her snow flurry being unleashed on the whole town, blanketing everything in a sea of white beauty.
The doll doesn’t just sing the hit song. She has a bevy of phrases built-in – 15 sounds and sayings for your child to enjoy.
If your child speaks Spanish, then you can turn on the Spanish option – or let your little one learn to be bilingual and switch the language options back and forth.
Parents will appreciate the “Off” button for those times when you’ve heard the hit song just one time too many and need a little break now and then. You do need batteries for this toy to work – three triple A batteries to be exact.
While some of the Elsa dolls on the market showcase the grown version of the character, this one is for the child version of Elsa, so little girls love it, even more, it seems.
Consumers who have already bought this say the detail on her dress is amazing and the song is very clear, unlike many dolls where the sounds are garbled and hard to understand.
If you get this doll for your little girl at Christmas, she’ll probably know all of the words to the song before the day is done. If you really want to go the extra mile, you can also pick up an Anna doll so she can play with both sisters at the same time.
Not only does your child get the Elsa doll, but when you purchase it, Olaf comes with it, too. Olaf is the little funny snowman from the movie who never seems to keep his carrot nose on right!
Doc McStuffins Get Better Talking Mobile Clinic
If your family has ever stopped by a Build-a-Bear workshop in most major malls, then you’ll know how imaginations come to life as children stuff and then groom their new favorite stuffed toys – right before they dress them.
This year, the Doc McStuffins Get Better Talking Mobile Clinic is bringing that type of environment right into your home! Only instead of stuffing and grooming, your son or daughter will be playing a veterinarian role and caring for their favorite stuffed animals.
The mobile clinic is a pull-along toy that is similar to an ambulance and clinic all rolled into one. It comes with motion-activated sounds and to accompany those sirens are lights that let everyone know an emergency is underway!
When your child plays with the Doc McStuffinds Get better Talking Mobile Clinic, they’ll get to play with the doctor’s instruments that come with it. It’s pictured with a little lamb stuffed animal, but that’s not included.
You can either show your child how they can use it with their existing stuffed animals or buy a brand new one and put it under the Christmas tree with the Get Better Mobile Clinic!
If the clinic is picking up a stuffed animal that’s stranded – like a cat stuck in a tree – then there’s a convenient ladder that helps rescuers get it down from its dangerous perch.
The clinic is so realistic, with a heart monitor, thermometer, and otoscope to make sure the little critters are in perfect ear health. It even comes with fake bandages they can use to help heal minor wounds.
Just like emergency workers in ambulances, your child can use the CB radio to call ahead to the hospital and let them know what to prepare for, in case it’s a big deal.
Before the stuffed animal arrives, your child will put the stuffed animal on a stretcher and secure them so they can be rushed into surgery! If you want to, you can buy the stuffed animals that Dottie McStuffins works with on a regular basis – Stuffy, Hallie, Lambie and Chilly.
It comes with the two double-A batteries that it needs, but you’ll need to buy more in the future whenever these batteries run out of power. Might as well get rechargeable ones. Kids will love this toy and it’s perfect for both boys and girls!
