Easter is only a few days away, and if you are like most parents, you are looking for some great gift ideas for the children in your life.
Well this year Hasbro has some super ideas that will appeal to children of all ages and genders, and our family was able to review a few great toys.
FurReal Friends Butterscotch, My Walking Pony Set
Welcome to the world of Butterscotch and her friends! This sweet little pony pet is a soft and cuddly miniature pony that responds to your touch! When you pet her, your pony moves her head in your direction or nuzzles up to you to show how much she loves you. She makes sweet pony sounds and even moves her ears! She's always ready for a treat, and when you feed your pony friend her ""carrot,"" she makes munching sounds. She'll be the fanciest pony in the show when you groom her soft coat with the brush. With such a caring owner, you both might win best in show!
Play-Doh Spring Eggs 4-Pack
"Crack open" these eggs and you're ready to start some molding fun! Let your imagination go with four different colours to choose from. A great idea of springtime egg hunts and baskets!
Furby Boom Surprise Egg
Surprise! A whole new generation of Furby creatures is hatching, and this Surprise Egg has one of them inside! Crack open the eggshell case and see what fun surprise toy is inside. But the fun doesn't end there! You can scan your toy in the free Furby Boom app and unlock a whole bunch of new Furby fun. Hatch them all (each sold separately) for a whole slew of virtual Furby hatchlings!
Furby Furblings Creature (Easter)
A whole new generation of Furby creatures is about to hatch, and they need you to take care of them! This Furblings creature has a mind of its own, but it needs your love and care. You won't do it alone, though, because it will share a special connection with your Furby Boom creature (sold separately). Put the two of them together and watch as your Furblings creature talks – and your Furby Boom creature answers! Raise your little Furblings baby right and have loads of fun doing it!
You can also download a free app and unlock a virtual Furblings creature to add to your collection. Get virtual eggs and hatch and raise your Furblings on your mobile device (sold separately)! The Furby app is optional and works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 5.0 or later. The app is not compatible with prior Furby generations. Check Furby.com for device compatibility.
These were all fantastic toys that have really been fun to play with and learn with over the last day or so since receiving them.
The girls favorite thus far is FurReal Friends Butterscotch, and since we already had the full size Butterscotch (this one is a mini) the girls have been pretending to have a farm and ranch and teach Butterscotch tricks, feed her and we have even extended our learning and sought out horse care on the internet.
The two Furby toys have had a bit of a learning curve for the girls particularly but once we were able to connect everything online and on my iPhone app, its been a fun time and kept the girls busy for a long time! I imagine it will be two items we will play with for some time to come.
Finally, the Play-Doh Spring Eggs 4-Pack set of course was a huge hit! My girls LOVE playdough, so any chance they get to play with it (even at five and seven years of age) they do. They spent a long time on Thursday making baskets and mini eggs out of the playdough and I love that the colors are so Spring like and perfect for Easter creations.
If you are looking for some great, economical, fun gift ideas, these should definitely be added to your list.
I highly recommend these items and give them all a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: All four items can be purchased at your favorite toy retailer from Hasbro!
