A Playskool, Hasbro, Playmobil Christmas

As always, Playskool, Playmobil and Hasbro are offering some of the hottest toys this Christmas. We are thrilled to bring several giveaways this week, giving you a chance to win some of these popular toys for your children.

For the first giveaway we have ALPHIE, a PLAYMOBIL Fire Station and Play-Doh 3-D Flash Art. What fun!

Do you remember ALPHIE from your childhood? I used to have an ALPHIE and I absolutely adored him.

Well, he is back with an updated look, and your kids are going to love him.

There’s practically nothing this little dynamo doesn’t want to “talk about” — from letter sounds and shape sorting to patterns, cause and effect, vocabulary development and much more, the ALPHIE robot is like a classroom in one little portable robot buddy. Educational fun on-the-go is as easy as can be, too, with this little guy’s handled noggin and storage spot for his cards in his backpack.

ALPHIE includes and requires 3 “AA” batteries. He also comes with 30 double-sided cards. There are also booster packs available to provide your children with even more educational fun. Each booster pack comes with 25 double-sided cards, providing more than 300 questions and challenges.

Your little firefighter will love the PLAYMOBIL Fire Station.

Yes, it does come in many pieces and assembly is required, but you can include your child and make it a learning and bonding experience. Once it is put together, it’s obvious that you have yourself a high-quality, durable toy that your child will enjoy for years to come.

The fire station comes with a firemen’s pole, fire hose tower, and a large gate for the fire emergency vehicles. Set also includes two figures and many other accessories.

The Play-Doh CREATIONS 3D FLASH ART playset takes my memories of Play-Doh fun to a whole new level. This playset is perfect for my daughter, who loves to create.

This cool set lets you create artwork with any combination you want of paint, Bend and Build sticks and PLAY-DOH modeling compound. When you’re done, press a button and your art “comes alive” — spinning around with lights to create amazing patterns! Come up with as many amazing designs as you can; they’ll all look different once they’re spinning and this fun set lets you create something new again and again!

Set comes with 3D FLASH ART machine, plastic blishter, 3 paint bottles, 4 design cards, 5 Bend and Build sticks, instructions and 4 one-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound. Requires 4 “C” batteries (not included).

For even more fun, you can find Play-Doh creation tutorials on the Hasbro website. Here are instructions for creating a Reindeer.

Would you like these toys under your tree this Christmas? One of you will win ALPHIE, a PLAYMOBIL Fire Station and a Play-Doh CREATIONS 3D FLASH ART Playset, total retail value approximately $135.00.

    Your giveaways are awesome! I love classic toys so much. I got my daughter Perfection last year and I want to get Toss Across!

  2. Debby says

    My son is 37 and he had an Alphie/. I had no idea they were still around. He loved it! Now his son could enjoy it and learn at the same time.

  3. Angel S. says

    Looks like someone is going to be very happy this Christmas! Thanks for showing us some of the noew toys out there this year.

  4. tennille says

    I love the firehall set-my hubby is a firefighter and our son thinks this kinda stuff is sooooo cool. Just like dadda. Thanks for the chance-thanks to your suppliers for allowing Canadian entries.

  5. Amy Brewer says

    My son and daughter would love these. You asked if we remembered Alphie, and I don’t remember him. I don’t think I have ever heard of him unless I forgot about it.

  6. Debby says

    Playmobil toys are wonderful. I was introduced to them a few years ago and I gave my grandson one for Christmas. He has played and played with it. It really gives the children a way to use their imagination and still have fun. Sorry Moms, there are tiny little pieces, but it is still worth it.

  7. seki tyree says

    I recently found out my son has medullablastoma which is a form of brain cancer….A toyset would definitely be wonderful and a big help..

  8. Randi Franklin says

    My 4 yr old son would absolutely love the fire station and my daughter 3 would love ralphie and they both love doing there daily art projects for nana my husband is in the marine corps and because we have such a big family it makes it extremely difficult to make the 14 hour drive home

  9. carlyn says

    Boy do I have some kids in my life that I’d love to be able to gift these to! Alphie was one of my favorite toys as a kid! (That & light bright!)

    my daughter would really like the alphie and my son the firestation… and the playdough would make a lot of rainy winter days much more fun!

  11. says

    I just saw that Alphie for the first time, I think my daughter would really get a kick out of him! Playmobile and Playdoh are already big faves in our household.

  12. Maggie M. says

    Wow how fun is this!? I have seen the playmobil sets in the stores but we had not yet tried them- this would be great!

  13. Aura says

    Wow this gift package would cover the gfts for my older children (the baby doesn’t know the difference anyways) My son wants playmobil, and my 2 year old daughter wants crafts and my 2 year old son likes anything that make noise and the robot would be great to teach him concepts

  14. says

    Ah Playmobile. My dad travelled a lot when we were little kids and he always brought home some for us to play with. Somehow we have lost it all :(

  15. says

    This is so cool! I’ve been eying Alfie for my Grandbebe Girl Makayla, my Grandbebe Boy JoJo is TOTALLY into firefighters (he actually asked me to knit him a fireman’s costume for Christmas – NOT! I’m buying one for him, though!), and my own Bebe Boy James would rock the 3-D art! Thanks for the chance to win!


  16. Brenda Vicario says

    I was just thinking today about getting my daughter Alphie for Christmas and she loves playdough! As for the firestation toy, I think we would donate it to a child in need since my son is too young:)

  17. Natalie J. Vandenberghe says

    I’m a first-time grandmother…and I want to give my grandson the best of everything! What a great prize. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Playmobil is SOOO big in our house. My kids love it. I have three boys – ages 8,6 and almost 1. These three gifts would be awesome to put under our tree. Please include us! Thanks!
