Why Your Kids Will Love the BRIO Village Central Fire Station | #Giveaway

I have two young daughters who love imaginative play. They are 3 and 5 years old and could spend hours each day playing with dolls and small figures. I love watching them come up with different scenarios and seeing the wheels turn in their heads. We have a couple of BRIO sets but just recently got the Village Central Fire Station – and it is so cool! My girls enjoy making their figures go down the slide and ride around in the fire truck. This set was super easy to snap together and has already created hours of fun for our family.

My girls and I love Hello Kitty! I collect stuffed animals and figures of my favorite characters and Hello Kitty is one of them.

My daughters love her so much that they try to steal her at least three times a day.

Celebrate #WorldPlayDohDay with Hasbro! | #PlahDoh60 #PlayLikeHasbro

Celebrate 60 years of creative Play-Doh fun with the classic Doctor Drill ‘n Fill set! For decades this guy has helped the idea of going to the dentist feel more fun with lots of silly dentist-themed activities kids can enjoy again and again. Start the patient’s appointment by shaping some teeth with the tooth molds. Fight cavities by giving them a buzz with the electric drill and filling them in with more Play-Doh compound! Add some braces with the roller, and keep the patient’s teeth nice and clean by squeezing some pretend toothpaste through the toothbrush. And to celebrate the Play-Doh brand’s long history of inspiring kids’ imaginations, we’ve given our mustached friend a makeover with exclusive retro-style packaging that’s sure to bring us all back to the good ol’ days.

Create Imaginative Play with the Zootopia Police Station Playset | #Zootopia #Disney

We are a Disney family through and through. One of our favorite newer Disney movies is Zootopia. I think the message is great for kids – you can be who you want to be. The movie itself is funny, entertaining, and great for adults as well as kids. My mom was recently visiting us and she hadn’t seen it, so of course we watched it. She laughed, she cried – she really enjoyed it. Because this is one of their favorite films, my girls have several Zootopia figures. They love their Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, as well as little Toot Toot. Recenly, thanks to TOMY, we got the new Zootopia Police Station Playset – and boy were they excited. They now had a place to play with all their figures and the scenarios they come up with are amazing.

Encourage Imaginative Play with Our Generation Dolls | #OurGeneration #Target

I have 3 and 5 year old daughters, so of course, there is a strong love of dolls in our house. They each have their favorites that they carry around with them everywhere. A couple of years ago for my oldest’s birthday, she received two Our Generation dolls. She was so sweet and instantly gave one to her little sister so they could each have one. These dolls have been through the ringer, but have really held up. They have been on family vacations with us and have slept in my girls’ beds nearly every night since they came to our house. Right around Christmas time, we got the Our Generation Kitchen Set (which I included in my 2015 Gifts for Kids Holiday Gift Guide) and it has been a huge hit.

Blazing Team #NationalYoYoDay | #BlazingTeam #PlayLikeHasbro

Today is National Yo-Yo Day and to help celebrate, I want to give a Blazing Team Beast Wrangler Yo-Yo away to one lucky reader! My husband has some serious yo-yo skills – which is more than I can say for myself. I wish I stuck with it when I was younger because what is more fun than showing off some cool yo-yo moves to your friends? He has been working with my daughters and my oldest has great potential – she has even pulled off a trick or two! I am sure we will be out on our patio tonight practicing to participate in #NationalYoYoDay!

The Nerf Hoop from Hasbro is a Slam Dunk! | #PlayLikeHasbro

My daughter has been asking for a basketball hoop for quite a long time. We are big college basketball fans in this house (go Syracuse!) so I think that is where she gets it from. Not to mention that two of her close cousins play basketball. She was so excited when she saw that the Easter Bunny brought her a Nerf Sports Dude Perfect Shot Hoop! She asked us to set it up right away, so we did. We found a great spot for it in our foyer – where both girls can practice their shots. Basketball has become a nightly activity in our house with this. I love that I can just put down the basket when I don’t want it sticking out. We have had so much fun with this Nerf Hoop from Hasbro and I recommend it for any little basketball fan!
