Need Christmas Gift Ideas???

Christmas is right around the corner!  I just can't believe how quickly time is flying by!  I don't know about you, but I haven't bought one gift yet!  I have several gifts in mind and hope to get started buying THIS weekend!!!  I wanted to let you know that I've had the privilege to review several wonderful things recently that would make GREAT Christmas gifts!!!


Hasbro has created a precious game called Pop Goes Froggio!  Mallory and Jack LOVE this game!!!  It's most appropriate for ages 3 and up.  The game objective is to be the first to find and match pictures of Froggio's friends.  Then, the child races back to Froggio and stomps on the large lily pad launcher, which sends Froggio flying into the air!  Talk about FUN!  My kids gets so tickled and laugh their heads off watching Froggio fly!  This game retails for approximately $16.99 and is available at mass merchandise retailers nationwide.
Hasbro has a fun new game for older kids and adults called Nab-It!  This game is from the makers of Scrabble and is played much like that classic game.  The difference is that you get to "nab" or steal an opponents word by building your word on top of it!  The player at the end of the game with the most words, wins!  If you love word games and a challenge - this game is for you!  Appropriate for ages 8 and up, this game retails for approximately $19.99 and is available at mass merchandise retailers nationwide and online at hasbrotoyshop.com.

Another Scholastic Storybook Treasures set I recently reviewed was THE HALLOWEEN STORIES COLLECTION.  These 3 dvd's kept my kids attention!  They couldn't wait to see what was going to happen in each story and were glued to the screen for every thrill.

And, I can't say enough good things about Mabel's Labels!!!!  I use these Sticky Labels on all of Jack's sippy cups, bowls, and all the products that go into the dishwasher.  They are incredible!!!!  EASY to apply and PERFECT for labelling all of the things that go with us to the church nursery!  I especially love the Sticky Labels, but Mabel's Labels has SO many other products for EVERYONE on your Christmas list...
