We want to let you know about some cool toys to think about during this holiday season. My family has been enjoying all the below toys, and the Unicorn Popper is one of our favorite. My daughter loved making videos with the Stikbot.
Unicorn Poppers($9.99 each, Ages 4+) From Hog Wild
Magnificent rainbows are popping near you! Two new additions to the popular Poppers line – a blue and white Unicorn Popper that shoots rainbow colored soft foam balls—up to 20 feet! Just squeeze the belly of the Unicorn and shoot out a soft foam ball. Six balls come with each of the Unicorn Poppers.
Now you know this is cute! Sahara and I had a fun time shooting each other and also seeing who can shoot the farthest. This toy is just pure FUN!
SuperMax the Turtle ($21.95, All Ages) From Cloud b
This unique, compact nightlight is designed to ease fear of the dark and help soothe children to sleep no matter where bedtime lands. SuperMax The Turtle features the same glowing starlight projections of the original Twilight Turtle™ but in a new, all plastic version that that’s easy to keep clean; adaptable for use at home or on the go, in day care settings or even hospitals. This special companion projects blue, red or green stars from its shell. An included booklet features the story of Max the Turtle for parents to read to their little ones – an important element in establishing a bedtime routine. The sweet story tells how a regular turtle became SuperMax, a rainbow-caped superhero shining his light wherever he goes healing those who need it most and lighting up even the darkest night. Cloud b is donating a portion of all proceeds to the MaxLove Project to help children battling critical illnesses.
The book and light are a perfect gift for someone who needs a little help going to sleep. With my daughter, she hates going to bed by herself and needs something to make her feel safe. SuperMax helped her fall asleep with the beautiful stars in the room.
Zing Stikbot™ ($4.99 single pack or $9.99 Studio Pack, Ages 4+)

My daughter had so much fun playing with this and making her movies. This is a perfect gift for the kid who loves to play with gadgets and make movies. Toy you can share on social media!
HipFits ($9.99, 6+) From HipFits
HipFits is this year’s must-have for fashion fun! It’s the new clip-on accessory that gives girls the chance to get in on the hottest trend in personalizing accessories making headlines on the pages of People StyleWatch, Vogue and more. Girls can now collect their favorite fashions to match their moods, trade them and gift them to tell best their story, day by day — all with a little charm from HipFits! These soft, fabric-covered, gel pad-filled, four-inch dress-shaped charms are tethered to colorful heart-shaped clips for easy attachment to backpacks, purses, strollers and more. Featuring more than 20 popular looks to reflect each’s fashion identity, each tastefully designed dress comes with a short poem that gives a personality to each HipFit that will instantly connect to any young girl’s heart.
I have to be honest…I wanted these! But of course, my daughter told me I was too old. Please never to old for HipFits! Sahara put them on her backpack, and several of her friends have been trying to talk her into giving her HipFits to them, I told her NO! What I like about them is they are soft. Sahara wants to put them on the Christmas Tree this year.
