The Great Birthday Gift Giveaway

Two Weeks of Toys - Giveaway Event

Cousins, school-friends, church-friends, soccer-team friends.
The list goes on and on…

How many kids birthday parties do you have coming up this Spring? It seems like Jackson has a party to go to every other weekend!

It can add up to a lot of birthday presents to purchase.

Well, we’re here to help… along with some help from Hasbro. They sent us a bunch of great gifts – all under $20 – to test out. And we have one of each toy to give away.

Jenga Pink Girl Talk

jenga.jpgOur favorite toy from the bunch was the Jenga Pink Girl Talk.

This toy is brilliant. It’s marketed towards girls aged 8 to 15, but we think it has an even wider appeal. Jackson — a 6 year old boy — loves it! He looks past the fact that it is pink and just enjoys the fun of Jenga plus the chance to ask each other questions. It gets us all talking and having tons of fun.

Janice, Jackson and Janice’s friend Crystal played it together one night and had so much fun, Crystal told Janice to bring it on their upcoming weekend getaway! I also read a review where the blogger took it to an adult dinner party and they had a blast.

We just wish Hasbro made a ‘Family Edition’ that was geared towards questions for the entire family. Hopefully, they will add a more gender neutral edition to their line soon.

We’ve got one to give away, but if you have a girl aged around 6 to 15 and you don’t happen to win it here, you definitely want to pick up Jenga Pink Girl Talk. It’s priced under $20 and well worth it.

FurReal Friends

Another big hit with Julia was the FurReal Friends Newborn Duckling. Julia loves feeding the little duckling her bottle and watching her come to life.

Hasbro FurReal

Julia squealed with delight when she saw the white little FurReal Friends Teacup Pup. It’s Buddy! (The name of her friend’s little puppy.) The puppy is so realistic and the little purse is just so hip.

Both FurReal toys make affordable gifts to bring to a little girl’s birthday party. You can see videos of the duckling and the tea cup pup here.

One lucky commenter will receive both a duckling and a teacup pup.

Littlest Pet Shop

Littlest Pet Shop Virtual Interactive Pets (VIP) let kids bring their stuffed animal friends to life online.

I love that you can even test out the VIP world for free by borrowing a pet from their adoption center. Check it out… I wish they had these when I was a kid.

Littlest Pet Shop

And then there’s a digital pen… I have to admit, this one is a little high-tech for little old me and has me a little intimidated. So I’ll borrow the explanation from Hasbro:

This chunky pen features a digital on-screen pet that you can “feed,” brush” and play on-screen games with! Set the pen’s digital clock and your pet is ready to play! Take care of your pet and it will love to play games with you! Beat the high scores and unlock hidden games and surprises. Use the pen to write notes and secret messages to friends with the included paper and sticker sheets! There’s even a TEENIEST TINIEST PET figure that sits on top of the pen! Remove it for your own pet-lovin’ adventures!

Again both of these online-activated toys come in under $20 and make a terrific quick gift for one of your child’s school-mates.

We have one VIP Monkey and one Digital Pen to give to one lucky commenter.

Transformers Robot Heroes

transformers.jpgBoys will be boys. And boys will always love Transformers. (Heck, even Janice and I liked Transformers when we were kids… yes, we were tom-boys.)

These Transformer Robot Heroes are a good gift under $6 for a boy aged 5 or older.

Transformers seem to be a constant at all the birthday parties Jackson attends. And with the Robot Heroes series priced at $5.99 you could even use them to giveaway away as party favors. (Wow – wouldn’t the kids go crazy to get those instead of candy in a loot bag!)

My Little Pony Ponyville Rollerskate Party Cake

My Little Pony Ponyville Rollerskate Party CakeJulia is loving this My Little Pony Ponyville Rollerskate Party Cake.

She calls it a pony castle and plays with it like a little doll house. It comes with a tiny pony and two little birthday present boxes that actually open up. Julia likes to hide a goldfish cracker in each gift box and then have her pony open up the presents.

Baby Alive Newborn

Baby Alive NewbornLittle girls can never have too many dolls, so you can’t go wrong picking up one of these sweet Newborn Baby Alive Sip ‘N Snooze dolls.

She comes with a little bottle so your girl can feed her baby and watch her close her eyes and fall asleep.

This little doll is splendid gift for preschool girls and it costs under $15.

    My daughter would love all, but ecspecially the my little pony or baby alive newborn. She has been asking for both of those things.

  71. Rebekah says

    The Fur Real friends are adorable and I know my daughter would just love those. She really loves animals and is especially fond of petting and snuggling our cats. I know she would have the best time with these fluffy little guys.

  72. Rebekah says

    The my little pony birthday is also an awesome toy for a little girl! My daughter loves birthdays and randomly bursts in the birthday song, I know she would have a great time pretending birthday everyday … lol!

  73. says

    My (almost 4 year old) princess was looking over my shoulder and said, “I want the pup”. I think she’d also like the My Little Pony cake. And my big guy (10) would love the Transformer heros.

  74. says

    Just like others have said, I too have kids who would find any of these fun! I personally love the girl talk jenga idea, but any of them would be a hit at our home.

  75. Jasmine Free says

    My youngest daughter would love her own Baby Alive. She tries to steal her big sister’s all the time! My oldest would love the Fur Real Pets- they are too cute.

  77. Nicole Mytels says

    The Baby Alive newborn really takes me back to 1970 something when that instant doll food “applesauce” mix was so precious a commodity that I would “recycle” it and re-feed it to the doll after the doll went potty.

  78. says

    Lots of perfect items in this giveaway. My kids love LPS and we’re about at the age to start playing Jenga! But I think the Littlest Pet Shop would be wonderful if we won!
