Must Have Toys for the Holidays From Spin Master #GiftGuide2017

Spin Master has been a top household toy brand during the holidays for years now. I first noticed them once I became a parent. Back when I was a kid, I didn’t care too much about brands. Now that I’m a parent and even a blogger, I take notice of what brands I feel are good for my kids versus brands I feel I need to avoid. Spin Master happens to be a brand I trust and that my kids love.

This year, Spin Master has launched some pretty awesome new products. These products include the Zoomer Show Pony and the Hatchimals Glittering Garden. While these are 2 products that are sure to be a hit this holiday season, some of the products they have carried for years are still big hits with kids of all ages.


Here’s a small taste of what Spin Master offers:

*Hatchimals Glittering Garden*

About The Product: Hatchimals Glittering Garden is the newest hatch batch straight out of Hatchtopia! Who’s inside? It’s a surprise! Each sparkling egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals with twinkling wings and soft, shimmering fur. Love and care for yours inside the egg and its eyes will light up as it makes cute sounds, telling you how it’s feeling! Once you’ve played with the egg enough, you’ll see rainbow eyes – that means it’s time to hatch! Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own. Your touch encourages them to peck their way out of the egg! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Now you get to raise your glittering Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Your Hatchimal sings “Hatchy Birthday” each time it enters a new stage! Teach yours to walk, dance, play games and more! It will even repeat what you say in its own voice! Hatchimals Glittering Garden — Who Will You Hatch?

The Hatchimals Glittering Garden is recommended for ages 5 and up.

My Thoughts: When the original Hatchimals came out last year, it happened to be 1 thing my daughter wanted for Christmas the most. Unfortunately it was really hard to get ahold of one, so she didn’t get her Christmas wish. We did happen to get ahold of one earlier this year and she loved the process of hatching it and even played with it once it hatched for awhile. With the Glittering Garden Hatchimal, I love that they changed up the hatching process from baby, toddler to kid. I love that this product promotes the importance of touch when it comes to caring for something. This product is sure to be a hit and if your children loved the original Hatchimal, they will love this one even more.

*Hatchimals CollEGGtibles*

There also happens to be another product in the Hatchimals line that kids will be sure to love. I know my youngest does. It’s the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles. While they are very small in comparison to the bigger Hatchimals, they still are a ton of fun. My little one likes opening them and find out which goodies she has gotten and has even started her own collection. They offer these in 2 packs, 4 packs and a 12 count carton.

Introducing Hatchimals CollEGGtibles — adorable collectible Hatchimals that come inside small, speckled eggs. Each Hatchimals CollEGGtible needs your help to hatch! Hold the egg in your hands, rub the heart and when it changes from purple to pink, it’s ready to hatch! Press on the egg to crack it and discover which Hatchimal CollEGGtible is inside. Each Hatchimal has glittery wings and belongs to a unique family. Based on the colored speckled egg you can tell which family your Hatchimal belongs to before they hatch. There are over 70 to collect in Season One, even ultra-rare and special edition Hatchimals to find! Tigrettes, Pengualas, Hummingbears — who’s inside? It’s a surprise. You never know who you’ll hatch! Hatchimals CollEGGtibles — Hatch a Whole World!

The Hatchimals CollEGGtibles are recommended for ages 5 and up.

*Zoomer Show Pony*

About The Product: The new Zoomer Show Pony is a fashionable, interactive pony you can feed, groom, and train to perform different tricks. She moves on her own and has expressive light-up eyes that show you exactly how she feels. Zoomer Show Pony knows when you’re petting her cheeks and nose, and responds with loving pony sounds. She’ll nuzzle into your hand, shake and move her head, and even neigh “I love you.” When you press the heart badge on her chest, she’ll perform tricks, including dancing, singing or doing a figure eight. Zoomer Show Pony comes with four interactive accessories, including an apple, carrot and a sugar cube. Try feeding your pony an interactive apple and she’ll crunch, chomp and munch happily! Use the hairbrush accessory to brush and style her, so she’s ready for the big show!

The Zoomer Show Pony is recommended for ages 5 and up.

My Thoughts: Imagine my surprise as a parent when I hear my 5 year old squeal at tv when the commercial for the Zoomer Show Pony came on. She is really big into ponies, so it’s no surprise. She loves that she can interact with it, pet it, brush its hair and so much more. This product may be hard to find when it comes to holiday shopping this season, so snatch it up while you can.
