Holiday Gift Guide: Playskool (review/giveaway)




Playskool has always been a great company for making baby/toddler/kid toys. So it was no surprise I think the toys they sent me for review are awesome and make perfect gifts this holiday season!





The first thing I got from Playskool was a Kota & Pals Stompers (Triceratops). This has to be the cutest little dinosaur I've ever seen! He's a bluish color (in the picture he looks green but he has a bluish tint), which I love, and his "skin" is velvety. When you push his back he comes to "life" and roars, stomps and moves. The sound he makes when his feet move is just precious! I like that it's not scary, it's enjoyable. The head moves up and down, his mouth opens and closes and he really walks! I've seen some dinosaurs in stores that look really scary and I'm sure would make my kids have nightmares! Something I just love about Kota & Pals Stompers is it COMES WITH BATTERIES! Seriously, I hate looking over every toy we buy and writing down how many and what size batteries we need to buy before Christmas morning! Another plus to that....the batteries are already in the toy...all you have to do on Christmas morning is watch your kid open the gift, then take it out of it's box for them! If you don't know why I'm so excited about batteries being in the toy...you must only have a baby, or this is your first year buying for kids this age...because the past 2 years it's been "what size batteries does that need? Oh...ok...WAIT a minute Jeffery I have to put batteries in it before you can play with it. NO not yet, be patient Jaylin, I'm trying to get this unscrewed so I can put the batteries in it"





The other thing from Playskool I got to review was Wheel Pals. I got one for Jeffery and one for Jaylin. Being that Jaylin likes to do everything Jeffery does, she is into playing with cars...so the fact that they have girly cars was sweet to me! She got this cute little dragonfly Wheel Pals, I think its one of the cutest little things! Jeffery got the little turtle Wheel Pals. I like that they are soft, but not too soft...I'm not sure if that makes any sense. They are made of soft rubbery/plastic material. I could see letting Jaxon chew all over one. One thing I usually have a hard time finding for Christmas is stocking stuffers, well Wheel Pals are the perfect size to put in a stocking! I love it! They have a ton of different characters for Wheel Pals, from these adorable designs for girls (gotta love the cute little bugs!) to animals, and regular cars. All of them for only $3.99 each!
