go traxI think we all heard the horror stories in the past couple of years about hoverboards gone bad.  I don’t know about you, but even though my kids wanted one, I wasn’t really anxious to get one, for fear my house could burn down or it could blow up. This year, however, GoTrax Hoverfly Hoverboard has made our list. It was surprising to me to find a very cool hoverboard that worked, was certified up to code, and had a ton of cool features.  GoTrax has all of these things, all at a very affordable price, making it a top pick for the holidays this year, for both boys and girls (and parents, too!).



For techie kids, there is the Ozobot Evo–an awesome pocket sized robot packed with some serious punch for kids that want to create and code. You can use with smart devices or without, but if you use them with technology, the possibilities are virtually endless.  LED lights, tricks and more await kids everywhere who will have so much fun with the Ozobot Evo, they have no idea that they are learning, too!


sweeper opsWe love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but have to admit that we love them even more when they are in miniature! TMNT Micro Mutants Sweeper Ops Vehicle Set is perfect for a fun gift that will engage children in hours of imaginative play.  Micro sized Leonardo and Michelangelo can play in this transforming vehicle and playset that also comes with a villain.  Great to travel with and doesn’t even require batteries.  Your kids will love it!

TMNT-WWE-GroupShot-10082016Nickelodeon has joined forces with WWE to create TMNT Ninja Superstars this holiday season. Four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dressed as infamous wrestlers:Donatello (Donnie) as Ultimate Warrior, Leonardo (Leo) as Demon Finn Balor, Michelangelo (Mikey) as Roddy Piper & Raphael (Raph) as The Rock TMNT.  How awesome are they?  Fun times ahead for both TMNT and wrestling fans.  You can pick up your own action figures exclusively at Walmart.

jojo siwaIf I could pick a gift that I would have loved back in the heyday of my youth, I would have picked this JoJo Siwa Karaoke machine.  What kid doesn’t want to sing along to their favorite songs, pretending they are a famous singer? A partnership with the YouTube superstar and Nickelodeon has created a karaoke machine, so now they can imagine they are.  A great gift this holiday season!


Who doesn’t love Super Mario Bros?  Sometimes, though, it’s fun to take them off the screen and into the real world.   Kids will love the new adventures with the characters in both the Super Mario Bros Power Up Card Game and Super Mario Level Up Board Game from USAopoly. Two totally different games will have your kids excited to be racing for coins through the Mushroom Kingdom.

I am loving these adorable stuffed characters!  Squishmallows are seriously the softest things I’ve ever felt.   Available in mini or giant sizes and a variety of animals, you will want to collect as many as you can and cuddle with them as much as you can!



I love American Girl’s historical dolls and this year’s new BeForever doll, Nanea Mitchell, is no exception.  Living in Hawaii in 1941, Nanea embodies what a Hawaiian girl would have been like after the attack of Pearl Harbor.  Her story teaches girls service and kindness.  I love the details of her story, clothing, and accessories and she is sure to be a favorite this holiday season.

Do you have a Blaze and the Monster Machines fan in your household? You’ll want to check out these Polar Pals.  Six die cast trucks covered in snow, equipped with snow tires, are ready to go on an adventure at the hands of your little one.  They come in a gift pack just in time for the holidays.






My Spidey-Sense is telling me that Spider-Man fans would love this 28 inch complete skateboard from PlayWheels.  The Ultimate Spider-Man Spider Crawl skateboard has everything you need to get started skateboarding: a maple deck and smooth wheels.  Lots of fun adventures to be had with this board.
