Last week I was blessed to attend the fourth annual Blogger Bash. What’s Blogger Bash you ask? It’s the chance for a lot of bloggers to get together, say we’re working hard while secretly getting to hang out with our blogger buddies and play with new toys ( and other products)!!! I jest, kind of…Blogger Bash is a really great opportunity for bloggers to connect with favorite brands and favorite bloggers. I know I had to keep my inner fangirl leashed at times when I saw some of my (ahem, JustaBXgirl’s) favorite Youtubers. It’s also the chance to get a look at what will be some of the hottest products for the whole family this year.
The highlight of the conference is always Sweet Suite as that is where we get to see all of the fun toys hitting stores as well as the chance for some of us to see some of our favorite reps face to face. This sweet suite one of my favorite reps shared she’s going to be a mommy!!!! I’m so excited for her and know she’ll be an awesome mother. But I know that’s not what you’re hear to read about. You want to know all about the toys!!!!
Let me not keep you waiting any longer. As always there were sooooo many really cool toys and games. I’ve narrowed down my top choices to 6 picks that I think JustaBXgirl or her cousins will be excited to get their hands on.
- LOL Surprise Dolls – MGA Entertainment has a winner on their hands and they know it! If your little watches Youtube then I am sure you are familiar with these dolls. They come in an orb and it is a surprise not only which doll you will get but what will the doll do! They can cry, spit or color change. JustaBXgirl has been coveting these dolls for months. There are over 80 dolls to collect. I was blessed to be able to take one home from Sweet Suite (which won me major mommy points with JustaBXgirl). As cute as these littles are they have been hard to find. They’re also on the higher price point starting at $9.99 for one blind ball. I’m a little nervous to buy a few and get duplicates.
- Shopkins Cutie Cars – You know I have (I meant JustaBXgirl has) an obsession with anything that comes from Moose Toys. And this will be no different. Shopkins Cutie Cars are just so, well, CUTE. These are cars driven by you guessed it, Shopkins. Yup, each car comes with a mini Shopkins to put in the drivers seat (and yes, I said mini Shopkins!!!). The cars are also very durable and will be tons of fun to play with alongside the season 8 world traveler Shopkins.
- Colour-A-Puppet – You should know by now that Great Pretenders is one of my most favoritest brands ever. I love the whole colour line. You know JustaBXgirl already has a dress from it. I really like these puppets because they’re the toy that doesn’t end. First your little can be creative with their coloring then they can be creative by putting on a puppet show! I also love that there are doll accessories that can be colored as well.
- DC Superheroes Girls – I love that JustaBXgirl gets to play with superhero dolls that are female. She already has the high school playset and all of the action figure dolls to go with it. Lately she has really become interested in baby dolls which you might have noticed by her usually having a doll with her in photos. These will be a big hit in our home. They will also make great Christmas gifts for other little super heroes in my world. Only thing that could make these better would be if they had a Bumblebee one since that is her favorite.
- Dreamworks Spirit Riding Free Barn Playset – We love Spirit. If you haven’t already watched the show on Netflix then when you finish reading this go check it out! JustaBXgirl loves horses because she watches Honey Hearts C on Youtube and learns about all of the newest horse toys. I enjoy learning about horses from her. Did I share the story about how she told me what breed a pony was at a recent pony ride and the woman that brought the pony was impressed she named it correctly? Yup, my baby is smart! This barn playset would be the perfect addition to all of our other playsets as it would be a place where not only her Spirit toys could play but all of her other horses as well. And this playset it from one of our favorite toy brands JustPlay.
- Little Sprouts – We love all things mini and how cute are these Cabbage Patch Little Sprouts? I know JustaBXgirl would play with these for hours and they come not only in sets but in blind bags for those of us that like the surprise. I adore that the blind bags come in what else? Little heads of cabbage!!!
Which of my picks would be a hit in your house? And don’t worry moms and dads I’m going to have some other cool products to tell you about for your own wish lists later this week.
