  1. Thank you so much for the giveaways! They are a lot of fun, and help out a lot too! And I love the reviews. They give me new ideas that I wouldnt have thought of otherwise. Ive seen toys and gifts that I didnt even know existed, until I saw them on here!! Thank you 🙂

  2. I really appreciate all the great gift ideas!! I have a great-nephew that is having his first Christmas and it’s been a long time since I’ve had a reason to shop for toys (my son is 21). I now have some great ideas of stuff to look for and what’s “hot” out there now. Thanks for the chance!!!

  3. Nice gifts. My grandchildren would enjoy them. My 2 year old she would like the Doc McStuffins because
    she has some of their items. She would also love the Disney since they just went to Disneyworld this summer.

  4. Those robots are pretty cool! I have a 3 year old and I think he’d love them. But I think they’d appeal to older kids too!

  5. I love the assortment of toys you have here. I could take care of 5 grandchildren gifts from your page. Thanks for the wide variety of toys.

  6. I think the Z-Tek Bow looks really great for my coming 6 year old. He is always trying to get his hands on his 13 year old brothers bows. We have to lock up the arrows just to be certain no harm comes to anyone! I would like to saee it in person and check out the quality. I’d also like to know where it was made. Thanks for all of the great giveaways!

  7. My 10 yr old grandson would like the  Demolition Lab: Triple Blast Warehouse  and my 4yr old grandson would love  Air Storm – Z-Tek Bow.
    Thanks so much!

  8. I think The Eye Found it Game by Disney would really keep my Grandchildren Busy.. Me too!!Lol~ I would enjoy looking with them.. I also like the Doc Mcstuffins All Better Set..They would have fun Being Docs! Last but not least the Disco Robots are Adorable. They would be a Big Hit!!

  9. Oh my gosh my little man would love the furby and my oldest would love that bow, I can only imagine what he would want to shoot with it haha.

  10. Mickey’s Christmas Carol: 30th Anniversary Special Edition!! I’m 33 and I WANT IT! This is my my all time favorite Christmas movie. I wait for it to come on TV all year long. I would LOVE to own this DVD/Blu-ray

  11. I love this idea, it’s great! It’s so easy to choose what giveaways you want to enter and even tells you what’s coming up. I would love to get one of the Furbie’s for my granddaughter and maybe one for myself.

  12. I would really love the Doc McStuffins All Better Game and the Furby Boom for my daughters. They’re 2 and 5 years old and these toys will definitely make their Christmas! 🙂

  13. Great guide. First time I have been on your site for Christmas. My granddaughter would love the doc mcstiffins clinic. Thanks for your hard work

  14. Well for my baby girl – anything Disney will make her smile so these ideas are great. The Little Mermaid is cool because she carries around her “baby Ariel” wherever we go. Working on our movie collection and adding Planes or Mickey Mouse would also make her extremely happy.

  15. Furby Boom from Hasbro because I gad a valentines one and would like to give my 2 3 year old granddaughters one each, so much fun!!!!

  16. I am going to have to get the That’s Gross Science Lab to use with my son. What a great way to get boys (and some girls) interested in science! 🙂

  17. Disney Eye Found it Game is one I definately want to get for my grandson. He loves to look and search for pictures.I know he is going to have so much fun with this one and shouting I found it !
    I put this one on my Christmas list for hime. thanks for the info on it

  18. I had no idea they had Zumba for kids…I think my daughter would love that. Also really like the Doc McStuffins game. Thanks for the gift ideas.

  19. What a lot of great gift ideas. I love the Furby and the Neat-Oh Blossom Bags for a couple of my grandchildren and I know they would love the Disney Eye Found It Game too.
