I will have to try some of these with the kids.


That non-toxic nail polish is a great gift idea for my neice

Beth Rees

The morph seems really neat. I think my 5 year old would have a lot of fun with it.

Cia Black

Nail polish is always a stocking stuffer for my oldest girl ( soon to be 9) and we have 3 AG coming this year ( we did the customs to get them to look like are children. Playdoh is also a favorite for stocking stuffer. The windows Jammer look very interesting though, I’m always looking for ways to entertain the kids in the cars so I can actually enjoy the music.

Amy Dong

My own littles aren’t really so little anymore 😉 But my nieces… well, they would adore those animal towels and all the dollies. Great holiday gift ideas!

I appreciate all these ideas. I don’t have kids hence I always struggle to buy something for my nieces and nephews.



Great selection of gift ideas! When does play-doh ever get old? My niece and nephew love it as much as I did as a kid 😀 I hadn’t heard of the Morpf creature before but I’m going to check it out and see if its something they might like for Christmas 🙂


You should add some more green gifts for the crunchy mamas 🙂

It’s really nice to have all these options today. Even if kids are more demanding, there is something for everyone.


What fun items! I remember when I was a kid, I so wanted a Baby Alive! I can’t believe it’s still around. That Tickle Me Elmore is the best. I ended up buying it for my mom believe it or not 🙂


These are really great gifts! The Discovery Box looks cool. I also like the glove dryer, though I’m not sure how excited a kid would be for it. 😆
