A Playskool/Hasbro Christmas For Boys

You know that nursery rhyme about what little boys are made of? It says frogs and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails is what little boys are made of.

This Christmas we have a perfect Playskool/Hasbro giveaway for the boys in your life, the ones who may also be made of dinosaurs and trucks and running amuck.

We are featuring these fun Playskool/Hasbro toys: TONKA Chuck and Friends, Dino Roars Monty Rex, Nerf-N-Force Sword and Nerf Dart Tag.

For the younger crowd, we have two interactive and fun toys that are sure to amaze your preschooler. (Reviewed by Erica)

tonka-1TONKA CHUCK & FRIENDS CHUCK MY TALKING TRUCK is a preschool boy’s best buddy who always has something to say! This friendly truck featuring sound recognition technology is fully interactive and will roll forward when called!

CHUCK is revving to go with over 40 onboard phrases to encourage play such as “We’ve got work to do!” Toddlers will enjoy rolling the brightly-colored dump truck across the floor, tilting back the dump bed to unload big hauls, and going on adventures with their fun loving pal CHUCK.

Both of my boys love cars and trucks and have LOVED playing with CHUCK. He has received many giggles and smiles and has taken part in many adventures. CHUCK is definitely a well loved toy in our home.

Toddlers can enjoy fun filled adventures with this realistic T-Rex pal that responds to touch, roars back when spoken to, and dances along to four engaging onboard songs.

While he is the king of the dinosaurs and roars like the best of them, MONTY REX is also soft to the touch. I was worried that my youngest would be a little afriad of MONTY REX, but he pets and kisses MONTY REX before roaring away and stomping around the living room with him.

The next two featured toys are a hit for the older crowd, the ones you always have to remind to stop jumping off of the furniture and running crazy throughout the house.

Nothing fits this rowdy crowd better than NERF toys. (Written by Janice)

Nerf N-Force Marauder long sword red-2

Nerf N-FORCE MARAUDER LONG SWORD is the second addition to the new NERF N-FORCE line. These swords are both longer and wider than previous N-FORCE Swords to help your son march into any mission feeling confident and cool. They are available in red and black.

Boys and their weapons, right? I am always amazed how a simple sword can provide Jackson with hours of entertainment. I get a kick out of watching him become a knight, ninja warrior or scary villian all with a toy sword and childhood imagination.

When Jackson invites his friends over, I like to get them outdoors. The NERF DART TAG FURYFIRE 2-PLAYER-SET is a great way for boys to burn off some of their energy.

Nerf Dart Tag FuryFire 2 Player Set-2

Complete with two new rapid-fire FURYFIRE blasters featuring auto-advance barrels that hold ten darts, two redesigned scoring vests, two sets of VISION GEAR eyewear and 20 DART TAG DARTS, the NERF DART TAG FURYFIRE 2-Player Set inspires engaging, energetic team play.

Each set includes one green and one orange blaster; gather a group and divide teams by color to create an extreme NERF DART TAG environment.

*Erica received CHUCK and MONTY REX to review. Janice is scheduled to receive both NERF toys to review, but they did not arrive in time. We didn’t want lost mail to keep you from missing these fun toys and having a chance to win them, so the Nerf info is based on product description. Playskool/Hasbro is also providing the prizing for this giveaway and product for Under the Tree.
