Toy Holiday Gift Guide

These toys are really cool, so bookmark this! Whether you're buying a gift for a kid or an adult, they will be thankful for these toy gifts.

Pley Rent LegosPley: Pley is a monthly subscription for Lego sets. Rent big Lego sets! Give the gift of Lego fun with Pley. My kids loved reviewing this! They were sad when we had to send the set back. I might have to become a customer. Pley reuses the same Legos over and over. You get a set complete with instructions on how to put the piece together. You put it together - a good time to bond with your kids if you do it together! When it's time to return it you take it apart, which the Pley tool makes easier. Then you return it in the same box that comes with a return label. Pley makes sure all the parts are there, and sanitizes the pieces. The next time you get a different set to put together for fun all year! Subscriptions range from $15 to $39 per month. Free shipping both ways.


3D Deco Light is backed by Nickelodeon with some really cool Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) Lights. During the day these are nice decorations for your kid's room. They look like they're breaking through the wall! At night they light up for an even cooler, useful decoration. Get all of your favorite TMNT characters - Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Donatello. You never have to change the bulbs, and it doesn't get hot to the touch. This is a great gift for your little TMNT fan.


My girls (and I) love the Monster High dolls, and this is their latest one: Monster High Freaky Fusion Sirena von Boo Doll. They are so cute! Sirena von Boo is half ghost, half mermaid. Monster High has a wide variety of dolls and accessories for them. Some include Clawdeen Wolf (a werewolf), Draculaura (a vampire-ish), Abbey Bominable, and more. The Freaky Fusion Monster High Dolls are a bit different. They're a combination of two things. Some are the Avea Trotter (Centaur and Harpy) and the Bonita Femur (Skeleton and Moth). These gothic style dolls are a refreshing change from the pink and girly Barbies out there.
