During the months of October and November, the best toys of the year and holiday must-haves are released through a variety of different media outlets. I, for one, love to scan these lists for gift ideas as they are usually on point with their suggestions. Some of those media outlets include TimetoPlayMag.com, The Toy Insider and Parents magazine.
The list is quite lengthy and includes picks for children of all ages. While scanning through the #DisneyDozen list, I noticed two products that were listed as the “Best for Baby.” Since I love to share, I thought I’d give you the scoop on these two picks in case you’ve already started with your holiday shopping.
Up first is Disney Baby’s The Lion King Simba Drop N’ Roar. This toy includes fun sound effects including the original song, ‘I Just Can’t Wait to Be King. Every time you drop a ball through Zazu’s belly, it either rolls down Simba’s back and out his mouth or drops down the side. Each time a song or fun phrase is triggered both surprising and entertaining your baby. Super cute toy!
Next is the Winnie the Pooh Interactive Story Buddy which uses Hallmark’s I Reply® Technology. Our favourite bear chimes in when key phrases from the book are read aloud. This isn’t available in stores quite yet but will arrive exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown stores starting in November.
