These days before Christmas are absolutely flying by. Remembering every little thing is not easy, especially when you have two little ones to think of. I didn’t remember to buy stocking stuffers until today. That said, I love shopping for my children, so I was happy to be put to task. This was my favorite part of the gift guide, so without further adieu…
Toddlers and Preschool Aged Children
Corolle is my most favorite line of dolls and doll products. My daughter, as you can see in, oh, EVERY single photo I take of her is clutching onto one of her Corolle babies. The high chair is made for children ages 3+ and easily converts to a table and chairs. Gorgeous and wooden, the perfect size for little “mommies”. Bebe Charmeur comes with her own pacifier, bottle, bib, booties and hat. She is made for ages 2+ and has an entire line of clothes that are sold to fit her. These are the most classic, well made dolls and accessories that I have seen and are their biggest fans.
I can’t say enough about Lego products. My son has a TON of Duplo and is slowly graduating into the younger sets of Legos, and cannot get enough of building, tearing down and building again. We recently watched the movie Cars for the first time (ever! I know), so when he received his Mater’s Yard he was over the moon. This set includes Tow Mater and Sheriff cars, Tow Mater junk yard sign and oil barrel.
Keeping with the Cars theme-which, lets face it, toddlerhood is all about the theme of the moment- Disney’s new Cars game for the Wii was a hit with my three year old. I haven’t been big on introducing video games to them, but when he played this game at a recent Disney event (and had to be torn away eventually), I was intrigued. The game itself is made for “all ages” and can be played by up to four players at once. Player assumes the role of Lightning McQueen and can even customize their car. Super fun for the family.
I’m big into clothes, both for my children and (admittedly) myself. I love to find unique, nicely priced, well made items for my kids to wear. 77kids really has opened new doors in the kids clothing market, and hits all three of those criteria spot on. The clothes wash well and maintain their vibrant colors, and make great grandparent gifts!
I am, proudly, the mother to to an ULTRA girly girl. Zoe loves anything and everything ballerina. These tutus are made for both toddlers and school aged children, and are super bright and fun, but not overly obnoxious. I can’t seem to get my own daughter to wear anything else. If you haven’t tried Babylegs yet, you really must. They are great for new crawlers (saves their little legs from being chaffed) and in the winter over tights, under pants, or even in the summer paired with skirts and dresses. We have tons and tons of these things- they wash incredibly well and maintain their shape even through extensive wear.
I have the following products available to win on Friday night:
LEGO’s Mater’s Yard, the Cars Wii Game, one Tutu and one set of Babylegs leggings.
In keeping with the consistency and nature of this Gift Guide Giveaway, we’re trying to spread the love. If you or someone you know could use something a little extra in their lives, please leave a comment explaining and I’ll pick a winner on Friday, December 24th.
