Whoa—ROLL BACK! Wait, I know that’s Walmart’s theme but you have GOT to see what went down before sun up this morning on Fox 29 in Philly! First off, I absolutely adore Jennaphr Frederick. I have been popping on TV with her for many years now and honored to call this talented lady my friend. She’s hysterical and beyond real. Um, can you see a bonafide #RealityMom!
Lots to talk about this morning with everyone shopping like MAD for Cyber Monday. We hit two segments—girls and little kids for one, the other was boys and the big kids. Trends this holiday for kids that Santa needs to look out for—tiny collectibles, pets, coding and fun for the whole family! Those aren’t trends released by some toy magazine—they are through my own kids’ eyes! In the past years of doing this, I have looked to hear what top toy ‘experts’ say is the trends and this year—I put my money where my mouth is. Or uterus, maybe?
My two boys took to the town to pick their favorites you can see in our Reality Moms Hot Holiday Gift Guide. We put fun markers with their personal picks. My three-year-old, Hudson, loves the Lion Guard Training Lair Playset by our friends at Just Play. And my eight-year-old, Boston fell hard for ChiP, the most intelligent robot dog on the planet!
Here are some more honorable mentions that you GOTTA grab this Cyber Monday.

PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT get paid by these brands to promote them. I’m a REAL MOM sharing REAL reviews.
I love how they call me a ‘toy expert’. Ahem. A ‘parenting hack’ is much more like it. ha
