I get to attend a lot of cool events where I get the inside info on what toys will be the new IT toy to get. When I was little it was the talking Cabbage Patch. When my baby brother was little it was Tickle Me Elmo. And yes, we both got those IT items. Today, there are so many IT items it is really hard to know which we HAVE to buy our littles. That’s why I love when I can take JustaBXgirl to events with me. What better way to identify the IT toy than to ask the person it is being created for.
That’s just what I did when we attended the TTPM Holiday Showcase. I let JustaBXgirl be in charge. I already had an idea of what toys I thought would be winner’s this season. Check out my thoughts here and here. JustaBXgirl agreed with some of them and I didn’t want to be redundant so I didn’t use the ones we agreed on in this list. This list consists of the top 4 items that JustaBXgirl chose as this year’s must-have items that I hadn’t thought of.
- Pull My Finger – JustaBXgirl spent so much time playing with this game. It is completely something I would not have paid any mind to had she not been with me. The game is basically about making a monkey fart! Yup, I know kids and farts! Get this for your littles and you will be a cool mom. It has already been added to JustaBXgirl’s Christmas List.
- Hamsters – JustaBXgirl has been wanting a pet for a while now. If you follow me on IG you’ve seen my thoughts on this. She was very excited about bringing home her own Zhu Zhu pets as well as having the chance to check out Hamsters In A House. I’m sure you will be hearing more about these from us in the future.
- Hatchimals – I didn’t mention these on my current list because we all know they’re already an IT item and because little is known about this year’s version. However, even less was known about Hatchimals when they hatched onto the scene last year. And if you’re really good I might be able to share a little inside info with you tomorrow 😉
- Happy Places – I told you we are Shopkins obsessed. JustaBXgirl loves her Happy Places toys. They probably are in her top 5 played with items. She might be an interior designer when she grows up because she spends so much time organizing just how the Happy Places homes should be before she begins her play time.
There are just so many good toys coming out this season that all I can say is it is a good time to be a little. We will continue sharing this season’s favorites all season long.
