Toy Story 3 Lots o’ Huggin Bear

Your little girl would have to have a heart of stone, to not want to find this adorable lump of huggable pink strawberry scented fluff underneath the tree on Christmas morning.

From the hit summer blockbuster Toy Story 3, Lotso is just begging to be every girls new best friend. He’s even got Velcro hands for that extra tight hug.

Lie him flat and he closes his eyes, Tickle his feet and he laughs, Squeeze his hands and hear some of his Toy Story 3 phrases. He even responds when you talk to him, and talks back.

Ok I know in the movie he’s a bit of a bad guy, but we can overlook that because he’s so darn cute!

Pink Leapster Explorer

The New Explorer is the latest version of Leapfrog’s popular Leapster range of handheld electronic gadgets.

For the first time the Leapster has a touch screen, much like the Nintendo Ds. However as the Explorer is specifically designed for children from 4-9 , there are many more educational benefits to getting the Explorer. Like being able to view your child’s progress on the Learning Path, or the self customizing the skill level which follows your child throughout all of the games they play.

Not only are the games available as cartridges, you can also download leaplet apps. Small games, learning videos and stories can be downloaded when you purchase a leaplet download card. With the downloaded stories you can use your Explorer just like the Leapfrog Tag, by moving the stylus along with the words on the touch screen.

Polly Pocket Roller Coaster Resort Hotel

Having been around such a long time that even I remember playing with her first time around when I was a little girl , Maybe it’s time Polly got a well deserved break.

That’s why Polly’s checking into the Roller Coaster Resort.

Turn the crank and watch Polly and her pet Monkey set off on their round the resort, dropping off their luggage along the way.

There’s plently for Polly to do whether it’s enjoying a meal at the dinnertime buffet, dancing the night away at the disco, or relaxing in the mountain top pool and enjoying the waterfall slide.

Barbie Glam Plane

Putting my 1980’s Barbie Ferrari well and truly to shame is Barbies newest set of wheels (or wings to be exact) The Glam Plane.

Only having two seats, Barbie is going to be getting the very best first class service on this flight.

Amongst the many accessories that come with the plane are, Luggage, A food cart, and Microphone for those all important safety announcements.

The icing one the cake though is the cute sound effects button which as well as the boring Takeoff noise, also gives you the familiar seatbelt ding, and some lovely tropical holiday music to get Barbie into the mood.

This Amazingly big boy’s toy would look mightily impressive sitting under the Christmas Tree.

Peppa Pig – Princess Peppa’s Royal Palace

Having no girls Peppa Pig doesn’t play a big role in my life. However judging from the reactions of friends little ones and girls at the local toddler group all dressed in their Peppa Pig T-shirts, she is big business.

This Beautiful palace playset folds out to reveal 7 rooms, ranging from kitchen, royal bedroom and even banqueting hall.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Dancer

Sylvanian Families Grand Hotel

I saw an advert today for the Sylvanian Families and all the memories came flooding back. Me sitting in my room re-enacting the Rabbit family having afternoon tea with the vicar and his wife, whilst the children jumped around on their bunk beds upstairs (I was an only child!)

Sylvanian families was one of my collecting passions when I was younger, I only wish my mother hadn’t given them all away when I moved out. I was gutted!

I had the house that you can see in this video, small but perfectly formed.

My favourite part was the charming green furniture, especially the bed’s which could either be two singles or clipped together to make bunk beds. I also vividly remember the tiny floral mattress and duvet set.

Back in the 80’s, Sylvanian families were a force to be reckoned with. They even won Toy of the Year 3 years running, and that’s impressive. Even though I’ve no idea why they went away, it’s no surprise that there now back with a vengeance.

So full of Sylvanian family nostalgia I went along to my local toy store to see the Grand Hotel in person, and it is just stunning.

There is not a girl in the world who does not want a dolls house like this. With an incredible 9 rooms and a roof terrace, there’s no chance of running out of space.

This is certainly one luxury hotel guaranteed to give your Sylvanian friends the holiday of a lifetime, with it’s fine dining rooms, grand ballroom and superior bedrooms.

And the included accessories are just exquisite, from the wonderful Topiary trees,room keys and suitcases. To the amazing working chandelier. Also included are a friendly waiter and chef, ready to attend to all your guests needs.

This set doesn’t come with any furniture, although that just means you get the fun or furnishing it yourself.

So this does make this set a pricey proposition, however I think if you have a die hard Sylavanian families fan they will really appreciate this toy.

The various sets of furniture that can be purchased separately are equally wonderful, and have some suitably special touches of accessories too.

The seminal set and undoubtedly the centrepiece of the hotel has to be the Ballroom set, with it’s two hotel entertainers Grace & Kelly on the microphone and Grand Piano.

I think a fitting accompaniment to this set would the delightful Wedding day set. Have Hugo & Hermione Honeydew celebrate their special day and then move to the Grand Hotel for the luxurious honeymoon.

The Grand hotel is big investment as a toy, but that’s just what it is an investment. An investment in time and enjoyment, your children will be playing happily with this set for years to come.
