Christmas Shopping Made Easier with #MattelHoliday Toys! #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 12/21

| November 30, 2014 | 107 Comments

Christmas shopping can be a daunting chore, especially if you are unsure of what to get the little one on your gift giving list. You want to make sure that they will be happy on Christmas morning when they unwrap their gifts under the tree. Well, a bit of the trouble has been taken off of your shoulders, because MattelHoliday.ca has a Top Ten List of the Hot Holiday Toys for 2014that has at least one gift that every kid would like to own this Christmas! I was lucky enough to choose four items off of this list to review!

The Fisher-Price® Little People™ City Skyway is a great toy for any child!

MHCitySkywayBox-A

It is a tower with a series of swirling ramps that two cars can go racing down simultaneously. The tower and the ramps are so bright and colourful.

MHLittleTykesCitySkywaySet-A

There is also a signal light that kids can change themselves, and the tracks on the ramps changes each time the cars run along them. The assembly was easy. It took some screws and some snapping together of most of the pieces, and it was done!

My kids literally went wild when they saw this toy! We had to try to distract them while we were putting the tower and the ramps together. Once the City Skyway was assembled, my kids started racing the cars down the twisting ramps for what seemed like hours! My younger daughter loved the “girl car” and said that the girl in the car was me! She is quite cute, I must say! The Fisher-Price® Little People® City Skyway was, to say the least, a huge hit with them!

PicMonkey Collage-A

My son is a big Thomas the Tank Engine fan, so choosing Thomas & Friends™ TrackMaster™ Avalanche Escape Set was an easy choice to make!

MHThomasTrackMasterBox-A

In this set, Thomas has to get through a dangerous mountaintop track. This set is really high and big. It measures a foot high and over five feet long, so wherever you decide to set up this track set, make sure you have a lot of room to run it! Luckily, my kids were so enamoured with Thomas that they did not really try to get involved with the building of the set

 

MHThomasSet-A

Once set up, the track was really impressive! My family was really curious to see if Thomas would be able to actually make the jump from the shifting mountaintop to the rest of the track. My eldest daughter was kind enough to film Thomas as he makes this run a few times. I also liked the robot that pops up and the fossil that drops into Thomas’ car as he goes under the mountain. This track set was another winner with my kids!

Thomas Collage

My younger daughter loves pretending that she is a princess. She loves big, flouncy dresses with bright and rich colours, so I had to choose the 2014 Holiday Barbie™ Doll!

MHHolidayBarbieBox-A

As a fashion lover, she has a gorgeous red dress with gold accents and a gold necklace. My favourite part of the Barbie’s outfit was her shoes! They were stylish red peep-toe heels!

Holiday Barbie Collage

My children were in awe of this year’s Holiday Barbie, calling her “The Princess” any time they spoke of her. I had to stop correcting them after a while because it was too cute to treat her with such high regard because of how regal and elegant she looked!

Since our Barbie needed a place to live while living with our family, I thought it would be the responsible thing to was to give her a place to live! It only made sense to choose the Barbie® Glam Camper™ so she could be comfortable while she was with us!

MHBarbieGlamCamperBox-A

This play set can become large, but it folds up into a cute pink camper that can be wheeled away once playtime is over. The assembly was a lot of fun to do. It was like putting together the décor of a home, only on a much smaller scale. Once everything was set up, my kids swooped in with Holiday Barbie to look around her new digs. They liked poking around the camper, pulling compartments around and trying to put Holiday Barbie into the cab of the camper that separates from its living area. They were having a ball playing with this camper set!

Camper Collage

Overall, all of the toys on the MattelHoliday.ca list are great to get any child this Christmas, and the four toys we reviewed were huge hits with my kids! They played for hours with each of the toys we received on this list, and they enjoyed them so much that my younger daughter goes to sleep with Holiday Barbie, and my son falls asleep with Thomas!

If you would like more information about any of the toys I reviewed, or for the complete list of toys on the Hot Holiday Toys for 2014, you can visit MattelHoliday.ca! All of the toys that made this year’s Hot Holiday Toy List are marked with a gold ornament on this site.
