It wasn’t easy to choose favorites from this year’s TTPM Spring Showcase. We are really looking forward to playing with, I mean reviewing, many of the products we learned about. Here are the ones that really captivated our crew. I really enjoyed that there was so much we could enjoy together.
With so many products that I want to share, I decided to break them down by categories because I couldn’t rate them by favorites. These are the things that JustaBXgirl, HOPS, JustaBXgrandpa, and I enjoyed the most.
LEGO – Are you really surprised that LEGO is on our favorites list? My mini master builder would spend every last dollar I have on LEGO if given the chance. I love that the TTPM LEGO table piqued her interest in lines outside of the three she usually focuses on.
SPAGHETTEEZ -These are really cool. I love that they are soft but firm. They really twist, turn, and hold really well in the new shape that you create. The set comes with some idea starters to help littles get a hang of creating but there is so much open-ended play available to this set that it really can grow with your littles.
Bedtime Defenderz – I love that this has so many ways to help our littles get over bedtime fears. It has a glow-in-the-dark belt buckle to help with fears of the dark. It comes with a bedtimes story comic book to help get our littles ready for bed. Its durable and soft for late night snuggles.
SANDOICHIS – These are going to be so popular in my home (and probably yours). They are soft, adorable and such a fun idea. Take your favorite sandwich and imagine it as an adorable animal that you can snuggle with at any time. We can’t wait for these to get to Claire’s so we can bring them all home.
GPK Plushers – OMGosh. I could not get enough of this table. It took me right back to being a kid in the 80s. I had no idea that the Garbage Pail Kids were back but now I’m obsessed with collecting them all. Do you remember these or are they new to you?
Squishmallows – Of course Squishmallows had to make the list. They even have a Squishmallow pet bed. JustaBXgirlwanted to climb into it herself. When in doubt on what to get a little, choose a Squishmallow.
Fresh Fairies – We are here for all things fairies. We’re already friends of The Fresh Dolls. Now the brilliant mind behind them is bringing us these cuties. You can buy them individually or in a collection pack. There are five in all.
Surprise Powerz – How cute is she? Astro and the other three Surprise Powers dolls are designed to introduce littles to STEM. They spark curiosity and lead to imaginative play around science, technology, engineering and math. The dolls are not only beautiful but also speak over 75 phrases.
Flicking Chicken – I couldn’t get enough of this game. I found it hilarious and fun for everyone. Toss the target then aim and toss the chickens. It is simple and so silly. It is the type of game that everyone in the family will love.
Fom Mania quickshot Foam Blaster – You might remember how much we loved FomMania products from last year. In case you missed it, you can find mention of them here and here. They’re back this year with a smaller version that takes no time to refill. I can’t wait to get our hands on them and head to the park.
Nerf Elite Jr. Explorer – Now the younger littles can enjoy Nerf as much as the big littles do. These are designed for smaller hands and were a big hit with JustaBXgirl
Don’t Miss These
Blinger – This might have been JustaBXgrandpa’s favorite item at the show. I’ve always loved it and now that JustaBXgirl is at an age where she can do her own hair I see this getting lots of use.
Dippin’ Designs – This might have been one of the coolest things I have seen. It truly wrapped the egg in seconds. It was easy and mess-free. I’m ordering white wooden eggs so we can do these all year round!
Play-Doh Frog n’ Colors Starter Set – Play-Doh is a daily thing in our home. TTPM had a few really cool new sets, including the updated version of a mixer that we added to our collection last year. This frog though was the favorite of our collective.
