It’s that time of year again, Christmas and we can be faced with the dilemma “what can I put in the youngsters stocking”? Included in this post are 4 great stocking stuffers for children from birth to age 3 + and even some adult hobbyists. I would like to give a special thanks to Disney for sending me the Disney Baby SoapSox ® and the Disney/Pixar Finding Nemo Bath Squirt Toys for my home trial. Brilliant Baby Products generously sent me the Yookidoo Giddy Up Gal Play Set and the Hot Wheels® Playtape® for the purpose of this review. The opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own.
First let’s start with an ideal stocking stuffer for the youngest on your list. Disney Baby SoapSox is a line of bath toys featuring some of the cutest characters Disney offers, Mickey Mouse, cute Minnie Mouse, Ariel and Flounder from the Little Mermaid and Nemo and Squirt from Finding Nemo. Kids can play and snuggle the Disney Baby SoapSox® all day and when it is bath time, simply add either bar soap or liquid soap and wash away in the tub. Forget the old-fashioned wash clothes that are no fun and switch over to a soft, colorful and adorable Disney SoapSox® character to make bathing fun and a unique experience.
Disney SoapSox® is machine washable made from a soft terry cloth outside and an anti-microbial sponge inside. Parents will have as much fun as the kids when bath time rolls around.
Next, is the Yookidoo Giddy Up Gal Play Set which included 2 matching rattles which are great for your baby. Giddy Up Gal Rattle and electronic musical Pony friend promote tactical, visual and auditory development using different textures, sliding beads and surprising sounds. The Giddy Up Gal Rattle can be attached to a variety of objects using a Yookidoo Ring. The Pony Pal features an easy grab handle, whinnies and plays western music when shaken or tapped.
The Yookidoo Company is the winner of Parents Best Toy Award in 2015 and the Bump’s Best of Baby Award in 2016 by designing activity toys to help your child involve their senses and stimulate the mind. Check out Yookidoo to learn more. Then look at Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube. Your baby will love the Yookidoo Giddy Up Gal Play Set. The cow girl rattle and Pony will entice their curiosity and will enjoy learning.
The third ideal interacting stocking stuffer is the Disney/Pixar Finding Nemo Bath Squirt Toys. I remember as a kid liking to squirt different things when I was taking a bath and these favorite Disney characters are great for doing just that.
Brought to you by The First Years, Disney/Pixar Finding Nemo Bath Squirt Toys are colorful and just the right size for smaller hands. Just think, how much fun these would be when it is bath time. The colors are so vivid and come in a set of three, Nemo, Dory and Squirt for lots of squirting fun.
The First Years company has addressed the needs of parents for over 60 years with fun products that use creative thinking. Check out The First Years and then look at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube for videos and information about the products6.
Last, but not least is the Hot Wheels® Play Tape®. What a fabulous idea, especially if your kids love to play with Hot Wheels® cars. My grandson has several dozens of these little cars but setting up a track can be a bother sometimes. Your child can create an open-ended play area simply by “Unroll, Stick and Race”. The tape sticks to any surface but won’t leave any residue, rolls up when child is done playing, stores easily and can be transported anywhere. It comes in two colors, blue and orange, 15’ long and 2” wide and is made in the USA.
With the HotWheels® Play Tape® your child can use his or her imagination as far as where the road will lead with no batteries, electronics or screens. Play time is endless for children ages 3 and up. Even Hot Wheels® adult fans can use the tape for displaying their collections using the realistic tape.
HotWheels® Play Tape® is sold by InRoad Toys and is available at Toys “R” Us, Meijer, Hobby Lobby, Fred Meyer and Bartell Drug. I would imagine, this would be a child’s favorite stocking stuffer by far. Check out Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for some of the ideas others have come up with using the tape.
Christmas can be stressful at times, especially when you are not sure what to put in the stockings. I have talked about 4 great stocking stuffers for children from birth to age 3 + and even some adult hobbyists that are ideal. These stocking stuffers encourage your child to use their imagination which I think is some of the best play time a child can have. Happy Holidays!
