When I ask my 11 year old son what he wants for Christmas, he changes his mind about a thousand times. One year I bought him a video game console, and a week before the big day he decided he wasn’t into it anymore! Grrr!
Then I remember that I was the same way as a youngin’ and resign myself to the fact this is probably karma.
As a mom, I know how important it is to get your child something they will absolutely love. ‘Cuz lets be honest, we all live for that moment their little faces light up on Christmas morning! And I refuse to be outdone by Santa!
Not this year, ‘Ol St. Nick. Not this year!
Thanks to Hasbro for making this handy dandy list of the 25 hottest toys of the 2017 Christmas season. Taking the guess work out of shopping for mom and dad!
These toys are sure to be a hit this holiday season!
Number one on the list is a Hanazuki MoodGleam Wearable. It’s inspired by a children’s show, and it’s basically a bracelet that changes colors. Which is something one of the characters in the show wears. Something I would have gone bananas for as a little one!
Number 2 on the list is a Play Doh letters and language set. This is pretty cool because it combines learning and fun. And who doesn’t love Play-Doh?
Fun fact: My son received a little container of Play-Doh in his bag while trick-or-treating. I played with that thing for an hour before he confiscated it from me. Oops.
Number 3 is a Spider-Man Vulture Attack Set. This awesome toy speaks for itself! Want!
Fourth on the list is a a Star Wars Black Series Poe Dameron Electronic Helmet. I have a feeling this will be on Keppler’s wish list this year. Even I can admit this thing looks cool!
Number 5: Littlest Pet Shop Cruise Ship Playset. What? I didn’t even know Littlest Pet Shop was still a thing!! I LOVED these things as a kid!

Sixth is Marvel Legend Series 12 inch figures. Need I say more?
7 is a Sky High Pie Face! This game is fun for the entire family…a little messy but delicious!
Evan was super excited to get a *whack* at a giant version of Sky High #Pieface by @hasbrogamesofficial while we were at #HasCon. He gave it a solid hit and I realized pretty quickly that I had forgotten to take my glasses off. #hascon2017 #skyhighpieface #convention #conventionseason #boardgames #familyboardgames #hasbro #familyfun #fatherandsonmoment #fatherandson #boardgame #partygame
8 is a little reminiscent of camping games! But who says you have to be camping to play coinhole?
9: BeyBlade Burst Avatar Attack Battle Set. I’ve seen a group of little boys play BeyBlade for hours. Anything that keeps them happy and outta mom’s hair is A-ok with me!
10: Disney Princess Dance Code Belle. This cute toy combines coding and dancing! Plus, it’s ADORABLE!
11 is a Furreal Roarin’ Tyler, The Playful Tiger. So ferocious!
12 is ANOTHER FURREAL! A Furreal Makers Proto Max!
13 is a Get A Grip. This is a fun game you can play with friends and family. The only rule? You can’t use your thumbs! It’s harder than you’d think!
14 is a Marvel Legend Series Star-Lord Electronic Helmet. Gimme!
15 is a game called Hearing Things. I’m dying to try this! You put on noise cancelling headphones and attempt to read the lips of the peolpe you are playing with. The point is to guess as many phases as possible before time runs out. Prepare to laugh until your ribs hurt!
16 is a Thor Ragnarok Gladiator Hulk Interactive Figure. Why weren’t toys this cool when I was a kid?!?!
17 is a Marvel’s Thor Ragnarok Rumble Strike Hammer
18 is a Nerf Nitro Motofury Rapid Rally! Nerf has really upped the game with this one!
19: Who says drinking games are just for adults. Obviously, this is a non alcoholic one, that you can play with your kiddos. It’s called Pour Taste! Players pick their liquid ingreadients. All you need to do is spin the spinner and hope you don’t end up with a mouthful of VINEGAR! EWW!
20: Star Wars is so hot right now! Let’s be honest, Star Wars is so hot all the time. This next toy is called the Star Wars Forces of Destiny Adventure Figure and Friends Assortment.

22 is cute as a button. This is the perfect gift for the little one in your family who wants to play parent! It’s a Baby Alive Sweet Tears Baby Doll. She cries, she makes the cutest facial expressions, and she even gets a cold once in a while!
23, shocking! Another Star Wars Toy! Say hello to the Star Wars Forces of Destiny Bladebuilders Extendable Staff!
24 makes me wonder if we have gone back in time? This was the hot item when my son was little, and it’s back! Tickle Me Elmo is one of the hottest toys of the season, except this time he is smaller, lighter, and softer! ISNT HE CUTE!!!?
And last but not least, number 25 is another electronic hammer…but this one is a little different. It’s called the Marvel Legend Series ‘Thor’ Mjolnur Electronic Hammer!
I want them all. Seriously, I gotta ask this again. WHY WERENT TOYS THIS COOL WHEN I WAS A KID?
