Best Christmas Toys for 2014
Christmas is My Favorite Holiday
As the mother of four and the grandmother of seven Christmas is the time of year for church, family and having fun shopping for those presents. I truly love Christmas shopping because I start early and I also do my homework. As I see my family during the year, I ask about the different ideas or items I have found just to see their reaction. This information all goes on a list I keep in my phone. Your phone is a great place to keep your list because if you are like me your phone is never far away.
Here is my list for 2014 - I think my grandkids will love these:
Great Gift for 6 - 12 Year Olds
#1 is Make Your Case - Case Maker
This is perfect because every kid has a cell phone so number one is the Make Your Case - Case Maker. This is fabulously creative because you get molds for several different makes of smartphones and different colors, stencils and decorations to make your very own designed cell phone case. The children can be creative and make more than one case. Also, keeps them busy for hours with a finished product to show their friends. Wonderful gift!
#2 is a Cell Phone Cover
I can't believe I am actually looking at cell phone covers for my grandchildren but it seems all of them now have cell phones. It is really a good thing because there is no such thing as a payphone anymore and I love the fact that they can reach their parents in less than a second.
I picked this cell phone cover because it fits all types of phones and its really cute. The eyes glow in the dark and it smells just like a like vanilla cookie.One of my granddaughters will love this so I ordered it.
Look out - Here it Comes!
#3 is Zoomer Dino
Made by Spin Master this Bonekruncher dino can actually be tamed and taught by my twin 7 year old grandsons. That should keep them pretty busy for a long while! They will get a kick out of the burps and farts produced by this dino if he is fed to much of his "dino snack bone".
Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin’ Pup
#4 is Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin’ Pup
This electronic puppy will thrill the younger children on your list. They can take her for a walk and even make her sit by a simple pat on the head. There is an interactive app that she will interact with and your child can make friends with other Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin’ Pup owners. Hours of fun and some great learning ideas with the app.
Street Hawk Remote Control Flying Car by Mattel by Hot Wheels
#5 is Wheels Street Hawk Remote Control Flying Car
Cars can fly! Your youngster will love taking control of this amazing Street Hawk that is capable of doing aerial tricks at 200 feet in the air as well as racing around curves on the ground using this special remote-control. Did I mention the fact that this toy has it has dual propellors that spin over 35K RPMs. Easily charged using your USB cable. Great for the kids who like speed.
#6 is LeapFrog LeapTV Educational Active Video Game System
This system is build specially for children 3 - 8 using body motion, pointer play or classic controls. Help your young one learn reading, math, science and problem solving in a fun and exciting way. Pet Play World is included with the system and there are hundreds of games which are designed by LeapFrog learning experts to be age-appropriate. Super learning toy and video game system all in one. Great for my younger grandkids!
VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch
#7 is VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch
This smartwatch is a watch with 50 clock face designs, a camera and a voice recorder that can change your voice to funny sounds. If that's not enough it also has a touchscreen with games. I wish my watch could do all these things and I am sure any one of my grandkids will love it. In fact, I think I will get two of these to finish off my list.
