I’ve been thankful to be part of Hasbro’s #PlayLikeHasbro team for awhile now.  It’s fun to get to know the hot new Hasbro toys as they are coming out, and my daughter loves testing out the toys they send for us to enjoy.

For those of you who love to wait until the last minute to do your shopping, never fear!  While there certainly has been a scramble this year for certain toys, the hot Hasbro toys are still available.  Here are a few of my favorites that will be under our tree this year.

Easy-Bake Oven

Hot Hasbro Toys: Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven

Did you know that it’s the 50th Anniversary of the Easy-Bake Oven?  When I was little I remember playing with the really old school one at my Gram’s house.  It had been my Mom’s and my Aunt’s when they were young (so definitely old school!). Continue reading »

I received product in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received and all words and opinions are my own.

I’ve always loved board games.  Sunday afternoons and many weeknight evenings in my childhood were spent playing any number of different games.  As I got older, they would often turn into marathon games where the board would have to be placed aside and revisited later to determine the winner.

Hasbro's The Game of Life Board Game

Now that I have a family of my own, board games are a tradition we continue.  While Bubbles is a little young for many of them, she still loves to join us all, taking part where she can.  And if the game is really above her skill level, she participates by rolling the die, spinning the wheel, handing us cards, or just cheering, “You can do it! Go, go!” for whomever currently is taking a turn. Continue reading »

I received Monopoly Empire and Transformers products in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and words are my own.

I have long loved the board game Monopoly.  There were some serious marathons of the game in my house growing up, too.  My father has more patience than any person I’ve ever met and he would sit for hours upon hours and play with me, long after others had given up.

Monopoly Empire

Monopoly Empire Board Game from Hasbro

While the classic version will probably always be my favorite, we definitely are having fun with one of the newest iterations, Monopoly Empire.  In Monopoly Empire everything – the properties, the pieces, the cards – get a little shake-up with modern twists.  You won’t see a battleship or Board Walk, but you will see a Coca-Cola bottle and Samsung.

I received a Play-Doh Disney Princess Design-a-Dress Boutique set in order to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received and all thoughts and words are my own.

We have been having a lot of fun with Play-Doh lately.  She has especially loved taking her toy dogs and dinosaurs and having them walk through and make tracks.  It was a creative way to play, but I knew they made a variety of Play-Doh kits that would give her even more options.

Play-Doh Disney Princess Design-a-Dress Boutique Set

At first I was just looking for something that cut simple shapes or maybe had a little rolling pin and stamps.  But then I came across the Play-Doh Disney Princess Design-a-Dress Boutique set.  Bubbles has been talking recently about pretty dresses and shoes and jewelry, so I thought this would be right up her alley.
