Tis the season!

2017 Reality Moms Hot Holiday Gift Guide

Can you believe the season is here again? We can! We spent an entire year testing toys, heading to gift shows, visiting with mom friends to get the best gifting goods on the planet! Remember Elsa? Hatchimals? Hover Boards? I bet you were one of those who totally waited till the last minute and was on Amazon buying it $100 more than what it was worth!

So what is THE GIFT this year?  With all of our research we have made our own HOTTEST HOLIDAY GIFT pick – The Fingerlings by Wowwee!  That is OUR pick. If you look in every gift guide & even ELLEN you’ll see how much these little monkeys are loved!

Truth be told there is a story behind every toy you see in stores. SOMEONE had to *THINK* it up. This past Toy Fair in NYC Kathryn Dickson from KathrynAnywhere & I rocked the aisles for the latest and greatest. When we finally got to Wowwee, one of my favorite toy companies, I knew this little creature that hangs will be the store-stopper this season!   (Have to admit my love for Wowwee stems with Dave, the amazing PR star! Dave is always so welcoming when I see him and there is no one more passionate about the products they share than Dave! GO DAVE!)  While visiting their booth we met Sydney from Wowwee. Turns out SHE came up with these little creatures!  Check out Sydney and the fun time we had on the Reality Moms Facebook Page. (And LIKE it too, would ya? Share it! Comment, gif it, you name it! lol I say all that because we’re giving one away soon on Facebook and you’ll need to know how & when!)

So many great brands. From the big brains like Hasbro, Spin Master, Fisher-Price, Little Tikes…to the little toys that could! Some of our favorites are Lakeshore Learning, People Toy Co, Gnome on the Roam, Creativity for Kids and the lists can go on and on!

So stop reading and START SHOPPING!

Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Kwanzaa. Happy Hanukkah & anyway you live with the spirit in your heart! After all… this time is about loving, being together, celebrating life as family and friends. Oh! And my personal favorite – FOOD & DECORATIONS! (However, we can all ask our kids and they’ll tell us TOYS!!!)

Of course your religion is important but don’t ever forget the reason for the season. Whether it’s the birth of Christ or the chance to feed the homeless. Just be sure to give of yourself to something higher than you & you’ll find joy in all you do!

May the crazy commence,

With love,
