Holiday of Play 2022 Favorite Finds

Holiday of Play 2022 Favorite Finds

I was invited to attend the event as media. All opinions are honest and my own.

It is less than 100 days until Christmas. That means it is time to get serious about our shopping plans. Are you the type that shops early or do you wait until the last minute and home that Amazon Prime delivers on time? In the blogging world, the holidays come early because we need to make sure we can get the news to you on time. That means that even when the sun is still shining bright and warm in NYC we are checking out what will make wishlists this holiday season and be starting our own gift guides.

I was invited to Holiday of Play which pretty much kicks off the gift-giving season. There was fun, food, friends, and plenty of fabulous finds. I’m here to share a quick peek at five items that you will definitely want to add to your shopping list.

Magic Mixies Crystal Ball – I have already pre-ordered on for JustaBXgirl. The Magic Mixies Cauldron was one of her favorite gifts last year. I’ve already shared it with my VIP (Very Important Parents) group because I know as soon as this hits stores it will fly off of shelves.

Vital Hero – This is such a great way to get littles moving. I keep describing it as a Fitbit meets a Tamagotchi. Not only does this watch count your steps but it challenges you to gets to moving. You can even battle against friends that have their own.

My Squishy Little DJ Mel Mix-A-Lot – You might remember how much we loved My Squishy Little Dumplings. DJ Mel is so fun. I couldn’t get enough of him at the event. Once you start playing you will definitely want s’more time to get your mix on!

The dodo Loveables – Bonkers Toys alwayshas the best Youtube toys. They are now launching dodo Loveables. I wasn’t familiar with the channel but found the plushies adorable. I got home and showed the photos to JustaBXgirl and she was very excited that they had toys. The littles always know!

Cry Babies First Emotions – I was hyped to have won a doll at the show. This new version is fabulous. It makes over sixty-five expressions, movements, and baby sounds. She also comes with accessories that help your little take care of her. The facial expressions are really good. The little pout she has is one of the most adorable things ever.
