Bulls i Toys

Bulls i Toys


Having three small kids at home, each of them has different favorite toys and tv shows so shopping around Christmas time can be a pain. My youngest boy doesn’t really play with toys much anymore so finding him things that he will like can be really tough. There is one brand my family can count on for anything for the little ones that we know they will like every time; Bulls-i-Toy has a lot of different toys for kids of all ages.

We got a few different toys from Bulls-i-Toy and I know my kids are going to love all of them. The first thing we got was Brainstem GooLab putty. As much as all of my kids love slime, I know when they open this up on Christmas morning, they’re going to be super excited. This putty isn’t sticky like normal slime so it won’t make a mess so that’s a good thing for parents! We got three different types of putty; Glow Putty, Pearl Putty, and UV Reactive Putty. We also got three other Brainstem products. We got two Skeletubes and a CUB3D. Skeletubes are dinosaur skeletons that also come with facts about the dinosaurs so kids can learn as they play. We got the T-Rex and the Pteranodon. With my son’s love of dinosaurs and learning, I know he’ll love these. The CUB3D is a puzzle toy that will turn into a fully-posable robot while also stimulating your brain. I can’t wait to see my son open these on Christmas!

My three year old daughter loves everything JoJo Siwa (and I know most girls do right now!) and we got two different JoJo products for her. Of course, they’re all bows! We got one box with 4 mystery bows and three mystery bow grab bags. My daughter is obsessed with her “JoJo Bows” and wears one with just about every outfit. Every time we go to the store, she always asks for more bows and I can’t wait to see her face when she opens these! The last four little bags we got were Squish Ums. All of my kids love playing and “squishing” their Squish Ums. I love getting my kids grab bags from the store whenever we go so I already know they love getting them. Bulls-i-Toys has so many great toys for every child that they will all love! I know my kids will love all of these toys and I know that I will go to Bulls-i-Toys as my go to for my Christmas shopping!

2018 Holiday Stocking Stuffers




Radz Candy + Dispensers are super cute stocking stuffers for kids. Each with a hollow head or base to fill with with the small bag of colorful candy that comes with the toy. They come in such a wide variety of characters such as the ones that we received; dinosaurs from Jurassic World, Marvel, unicorn (smooshies), DC, and the new set of Christmas one. Even though I plan on giving them away in the kids stockings, I still gave them to a few of my kids friends to see how much they loved them. They were a HUGE hit! I can’t wait to see what other characters they come up with.


Sticky USA based in Hollywood is an candy making artform from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and now the United States. Candy makers sculpt the most unique sculptures. They can even make candy to meet your exact specifications for your party, business or just for fun. Sticky USA sent me a few bags of candy to try. I wasn’t really sure what to expect and I will say I was very pleasantly surprised. We really liked the fruit flavors the best, and my 7 year old son and I watched some YouTube videos how these were made and he was blown away!


This 72 card game is fun for kids 6 and up. This game is is quick to play and very easy to catch on to learn. Some card may say one color but look a different one. Those are the ones we don’t want in play. But your mind plays tricks on you because your eyes see one thing! Take turns laying down cards, last one wins! Store your cards in the colorful “paint can”. Check out the website for rules and how to play.

Fairy Town Train Set {75 pieces}

Fairy Town Train Set


Over the summer we went to a book store to celebrate Harry Potters 20th Anniversary of the first book. While the older boys were building their Lego train, my 2 little girls (1 and 3.5) sat and played with the train table. I never in my wildest dream would have thought my little girly-girl would love it as much as she did. So, since then I knew that I would try my hardest to get her a train set for Christmas. I have worked with Hammacher Schlemmer several years before this, and I saw that they carried an adorable pink train set. I reached out this year and she sent me one so I could review it for my Holiday Gift Guide.

  • 4 fey figures

  • 4 fairy houses

  • 3 train cars

  • 2 tunnels

I know that my girls are going to have a blast playing with their new train set. They’ll probably play for hours and most likely my 7 year old will have a blast with it too. He has a wooden train set from when he was very little and we are able to connect it to this track too! Recommended for ages 3 and up. Assembled 45″ W x 27 1/2″ D. (9 lbs.).

I can’t wait for my daughter to open her new Fairy Town Train Set on Christmas morning!

Harry Potter Blender Bottles

Blender Bottle


My 2 oldest kids are HUGE Harry Potter fans. Moreso my son than my daughter, but they both are sorted into their own houses, have their favorite characters and yes, I dare to say, wands. We have all been fans since the first movie came out, have all the movies, books, and collector items. I remember a few month ago my son found online that Blender Bottle was releasing a new line of bottles in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. He was super excited and begged to get one. I recently reached out to Blender Bottle to have them feature a few products on my Holiday Gift Guide. They were generous enough and sent me several bottles!

 Team Hogwarts Blender Bottle Pro28: The Officially Licensed Harry Potter graphics come in 6 designs to stand out above others. The designs are; Harry Potter (glasses and lightning bolt), Deathly Hallows, Gryffindor, Slytherin. Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. Why should you have to pick just one favorite? At a hefty 28-ounce capacity, and comes with the well-known whisk ball that’s only made by Blender Bottle. Say goodbye to lumpy, chunky protein shakes and additives. It will make even the thickest shakes smooth!

  • Patent-pending carrying loop
  • Ergonomic flip cap and spout
  • BlenderBall® whisk inside
  • Leak-proof guarantee
  • Wide mouth makes it easy to add ingredients
  • StayOpen™ flip cap won’t close on your nose
  • GripperBars™ make it easy to hold
  • Embossed ounce and milliliter markings
  • Fits in most car drink holders
  • BPA and Phthalate free
  • 28-oz. capacity
  • Wide Mouth makes it easy to add ingredients and clean
  • BPA and Phthalate Free
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Adjustable Carry Loop
  • Leak Proof Guarantee
  • Rounded Base
  • BlenderBall® wire whisk

I also received a Classic Blender Bottle in a 28 ounce. I picked out the plum because it’s my favorite color! I love to make my chocolate protein shakes, and workout at the rec center. But most of all when it’s nice out I take my little ones for a walk (I shoot for daily). The newer bottles have an adjustable carry loop, so when I’m walking with my kids I can use a carabiner clip and clip it to my stroller. And better yet I can carry more than one with extra water for the kiddo’s. With the leak proof guarantee I can mix up my protein and throw it in my bag and not have a worry that it will be all over my phone, ipod, and towel by the time I get 4 miles up the road!  And to top the cake with a big cherry, all the Blender Bottles are BPA and Phthalate free. The Classic Blenders come in 13 amazing colors!
