I attended TTPM Holiday Showcase as press. All opinions expressed are solely my own and do not reflect any of the brands represented.
I am ALL about Christmas!! I LOVE seeing how excited my kids get about Santa, Christmas movies, I love matching Christmas pajamas and I work HARD all year because I love to see how excited they are when they open gifts. When I had the opportunity to check out TTPM’s Holiday Showcase I literally sprinted to take RJ to school and hop on the train so I could get there EARLY. I mean, with no Toys R Us this year, I jumped on the opportunity to check out some of the latest and greatest in the toy industry so I can make all my toy orders online EARLY. There were SO MANY brands in attendance at this event but you know me, being a boy mom I’m going to share all the things with you that I know our little ones will love this holiday season.
For the Minis That Love YouTube
Kid’s nowadays have a WHOLE app dedicated to programming JUST for them on YouTube so it’s no surprise that toys based off of some of their favorite YouTube channels are popular right now. Ryan’s World & Feisty Pets can both be found in online retailers like Amazon but also locally at Walmart. Right next to the exhibit for Feisty Pets there was also a HUGE selection of toys for Roblox lovers, which is RJs favorite right now and I honestly can’t believe I dont have a picture of it. I may have to look through my archives again.
For the Builders, Young and Old
From Go! Go! Smart Wheels, to LEGO Brickheadz, if you or your little love building then there’s something for you. I fell in love with all of the Harry Potter LEGO items and if I had a room where I could display them away from these two wild children, I’d definitely get them for myself. Something different that I know RJ would definitely love is Magformers. The cool thing about Magformers is that the pieces are magnetic, so that you there are no complicated puzzle pieces to connect, you can build it up as high as you want and the sky track set comes with an airplane that goes around the track. I definitely spent time at the table moving pieces around to test out the ease.
For the Dinosaur Lovers
When I found out that I was going to be attending TTPM I went with one thing in mind. DINOS! If you know RJ then you know he is obsessed with Dinosaurs and he has soooooo many different variations, however he didn’t have any of these! Playmobil, Mega Construx and Wowwee (the makers of fingerlings) had tons of dinosaurs on display and I got some great ideas for stocking stuffers and gifts for my future paleontologist.
Of course, there were glitter and slime and dolls galore at TTPM but being the mom of two little boys, that just isn’t my ministry. If you want to see more then a good place to search is using #TTPM or #TTPMHolidayShowcase onInstagram, you will see tons of posts from the day of the event.
