With the holidays in full swing, I was happy to get this assortment of fun and exciting gift ideas for the whole family. 

Starting with stocking stuffers, the shopkins are a big hit for kids and brush buddies are a practical and fun stocking stuffer. 

I feel like etch a sketch was the first tablet to come out, only you used your imagination instead of technology and I think this is a great gift for a wide variety of ages.  

I am especially interested in the Space Farm.  I cannot wait to get started on this extraterrestrial farm.  I think this is a really great idea for a learning gift that is good for those who like to experiment and have fun as they learn.  

I love the idea of these mini construction vehicles for toddlers that are made of 100% recycled milk jugs.  Both boys and girls will enjoy playing with these new green classics.  

The Irish Fairy Door sounds magical and it is.  I love this idea for little girls and boys to have this portal for fairies to travel.  I like that this uses a childs imagination along with technology. 

The Silverlit: Nano Falcon xs is the worlds smallest RC model helicopter and I know it will be on a lot of boys of all ages wish list.  

I can see Dads eyes light up for this one!  You can not go wrong with the Marvel prints.  These are genuine and very popular with young and old.  I like that they are of real value and can be collected and passed down through the generations.  

I think Accentuate Games are hilarious! This accent game is so much fun and a great way for moms to let loose and laugh.  I think its a fun game to play after the little ones are off to bed.
