Holiday Showcase!

I just received my holiday showcase and I wanted to share it with you before all the moms come over and peek themselves!

MomSelect sent us Play-Doh Shape and Spin Elmo, Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory, Sneaky 3D Puzzle from Patch Products, The NEW Smallfrys from BuildaBear, Playmobils Child's First Day at School Kit - take a look below for ideas for the holidays season!

Play-Doh Shape and Spin Elmo

Who doesn't love Play-Doh!! Amber still gets it out every so often to play with it and make huge designs lol. This is cute, they get to learn their shapes, colors and more. Definitely worth it! Retails for $19.99

Discovering is fun with PLAY-DOH compound and Sesame Street! Elmo has two fun play modes. In mode 1, Elmo helps your child identify shapes and then counts them as your child makes them. In mode 2, Elmo prompts your child to make various shapes. Together, they'll have lots of fun creating PLAY-DOH triangles, circles and more.

This talking playset comes with a playmat, 3 stampers, instructions, and 3 three-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH Brand Modeling Compound. NOTICE PARENTS: Contains wheat. Nontoxic. Includes 2 "AAA" batteries. Ages 3 and Up

Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory

This one is soooo up Ambers alley!! She won't give it back! lol Retails for $29.99

Keep it moving and keep the fun coming with this awesome moving MEGA FUN FACTORY conveyor belt set! Load your PLAY-DOH compound in one end and turn on your conveyor belt to stamp out pretend toys or food from one of the two gear molds. Keep your conveyor belt running and you can stamp out tons and tons of fun creations -- it's non-stop imaginative action! Plus, when you're ready to "shut down" the "factory" for the day, you can even store up to six cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound right in the set so they're all ready for the next time you turn it on.

MEGA FUN FACTORY conveyor belt set comes with two gears with 15+ molds, playmat and four three-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound.Requires 2 "C" batteries (not included). Ages 3 and up.

Sneaky 3D Puzzle from Patch Products

Ok Amber wasn't into this, but the neighbor boys were! They loved it.  Retails for $14.99

This 46-piece puzzle is full of surprises! Put together the colorful safari scene and then slip on the included 3D glasses for a magical experience! It looks like the animals are so big and lively. Then, notice that all the letters of the alphabet and numbers 0-9 hidden in the picture...sneaky, huh? Find them all! Finished floor puzzle is 2 x 3 feet - that's humongous! Ages 3 & Up 

The NEW Smallfrys from BuildaBear

Right now these guys are 2 for $20 with the code 95510 (can't use more than one code per order)
There's also a $5 off $10 code too right now 95428

I LOVE THEM!! They are the cutest, softest things, BAB has come out with. And the fact that they are in a little fry box is adorable. Perfect for the little ones or a STOCKING STUFFER!! My favorite is the doggie in the ducky outfit lol

The limited edition collection includes eight pre-stuffed animals which are smaller versions of past and present Build-A-Bear Workshop favorite furry friends. They come packaged complete with their very own “nutritional friendship information” on back. Although they are small, each build-a-bear smallfrys furry friend has big personality.

Some accessoires for the little frys are: Plaid Shirt and Tie Jean set, Hoodie and Jean set, Fuchsia Ruffle Leggings set, Pink Dot Dress, Peace Pajamas, Blue Fairy outfit and more.

* Sassy Kitty
* Read Teddy ®
* Marble Monkey
* Endless Hugs Teddy
* Shaggy Pup
* Peace Bear
* Fabulous Frog
* Cinnamon Swirl Bunny

Big build-a-bear smallfrys fun is also available at buildabearville.com ®, the company’s virtual world. Each of these furry friends comes with a code to receive free gifts at buildabearville.com. When Guests redeem their code online, they receive a virtual accessory bag themed to carry their build-a-bear smallfrys friend and a doll house style furniture item. When Guests click on the item, it opens up to a new smaller room, the perfect size for a build-a-bear smallfrys virtual furry friend. 

And lastly Playmobils Child's First Day at School Kit - do you remember the cones our moms made for us, for our first day of school, with tons of goodies inside (ok I might be dating myself here lol) but it was a tradition when I was VERY young that the parents did this for our First Day of School - Retails for $3.29 Cute stocking stuffer!

I hoped you loved looking at the showcase and came up with some new ideas for christmas! One more thing to leave you with - if you having a holiday party - MomSelect gave me a great recipe for the kids and adults too!

Snowball Treats
*1 12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
*4 cups of prepared popcorn
*2 cups of fruit flavored cerea, like fruit loops

Mix the popcorn and cereal together in a large bowl
Gently melt the chocolate chips by placing in the microwave for 1-2 minutes (do it in increments of 30 secs and stir each time)
Pour the chocolate over the cereal/popcorn mix and gently stir to combine
Pour the mixture (more like spoon it lol) into 12 cupcake liners and let it sit for 30 mins.

LOVED these!! I think you will too :)
