My kids are constantly being invited to their friends birthday parties. I love it when they are invited to parties, I’m glad they have such great friends. But sometimes I have a really hard time buying a gift for a child I don’t know much about because they are friends at school and don’t play with each other at home. So I’m compiling a list of some of the toys I know kids like, because my kids have them and love them. You will have no worries that the child will love these toys, because they have been tested by my kids. Hasbro has been generous enough to let my kids test out a few toys for this review. Thanks Hasbro!
1. Crocodile Dentist Game by Hasbro. This game is so much fun and funny too! My kids were nervous that the Crocodile would chomp down on their finger when it was their turn. There were a lot of screams and giggles with this game.
Watch this fun video of my kids playing the game:
2. Peek a Boo Fur Real Pet. This cute little pet is the perfect substitute for a child with animal allergies or for a child that lives in an apartment and can’t have a real pet. My 4 year old son loved this cute little cat that plays “Peek-a-Boo” with you and makes a sound when you put it’s sippy cup to its lips. So cute! All of my other kids ages 10, 12, 14 and 15 also played with it. It’s a universal toy.
3. Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Dreadshot Blaster. Ages 6 and up. This is my 10 year old son’s favorite water gun to take outside and soak his friends with. It’s made really well and I know it will last through all the zombie attacks they will face this summer. It’s fun because the gun’s cocking action is what makes the water squirt. Get ready for twice the zombie-soaking action. This one-handed blaster’s 2 barrels let you launch a double stream of water at the zombies! It can hold up to 24 ounces of water and the water tank lights up for nighttime missions. This gun shoots up to 30 feet away.
4. Marvel Avengers Hawkeye Longshot Bow. With the new Avengers moving coming out recently, anything Avengers is HOT right now. This Hawkeye Bow is the perfect gift for any child that likes the Avengers.
5. Marvel Avengers Captain America Star Launch Shield. Any Captain America fan will love this fun toy. My kids really like toys that actually do something. This isn’t just a shield, it launches a flying saucer. So much fun!
6. Nerf Rebelle Super Soaker Water Gun. My girls don’t have this yet, but I can’t wait to get it for them. I love how the water is stored in the bandolier that crosses over their body and keeps them cool. How fun is this water gun?
7. DohVinci Flower Tower Picture Frame Kit. My kids absolutely love DohVinci sets. I love how creative my kids can be with them. There is nothing like DohVinci. You can use it to add a splash of color and uniqueness to anything!
8. Jenga Tetris. How much fun would your family have playing this game? The Jenga pieces are tetris shapes. What a challenge! You might have to buy two if you’re getting this for someone else as a gift, so your family can play it too!
9. Super Soaker Hydro Pack. A little like the Rebelle water gun, this Hydro Pack is a vest filled with water to feul the water gun. How perfect for keeping the kids cool as they run around in the hot summer sun?
10. My Little Pony Cutie Mark Magic Glamour Glow Rarity Figure. Now that’s a mouthful! But look at how cute she is? My girls are too old for a toy like this and it makes me sad because I would want to play with this pony with them. She is so much fun because you can customize her look with fun stickers. She lights up too!
I hope I’ve given you some good ideas! These are the hottest toys right now and I know what ever child you are shopping for will love these. Enjoy!
