You all know by now that I just love toys, right? So I have two more to recommend to you for this holiday season (or after) that I think you will love! Disclosure – I was provided these toys from Hasbro, opinions are my own as always.

There is something about Elmo that makes him lovable. In this toy Elmo can help your little ones with potty training. Many kids get scared about going on the potty, toys like Elmo can help show them it is okay and to give it a try. This Elmo is going to my nephew Colby for sure as he is fast approaching potty training time and I think he will love Elmo. You can buy Potty Time Elmo directly from Hasbro and still get him by Christmas if you order by 12/22. Here is a quick video so you can see Potty Time Elmo in action.

This is Hasbro’s latest generation of Furby, the Furby Boom. I absolutely adore it and she seems much more interactive and fun than the original Furby several years ago. This one also “lays eggs” that you can collect via the Furby Boom app (Android and iOS). My cats are very interested in Furby Boom as well. A great gift idea for youngsters or even those older folks, like me, who just love fun toys like this no matter what their age. You can buy Furby Boom directly from Hasbro and still get it by Christmas if you order by 12/22. Make sure to follow Furby on Facebook too! Here is a quick video to see a bit of Furby Boom in action.

 

Will either Potty Time Elmo or Furby Boom end up under your tree this holiday season? Who would you give them too (don’t worry, I won’t tell)?

We will try online we were not able to find it in the store. Furby just might make it under the tree.

I was happy to see you could still order them online when I was writing up this post

Elmo is always a hit. The video voice is so darn sweet! I ‘d gift this one to my lil’ grandson who is 2. The furby boom.I had never heard of. Two of my kids had them, I had NO idea they were making another comeback. thanks for the great video!

The Furby Boom looks really fun; maybe I will still try to get one for my nephew. Thanks for sharing the videos!

I have a niece that wants the Furby Boom. Gosh I remember trying to find a Furby for my children when they were young 15 years ago.

Yep – the Furby was all the range back in the late 90s and I remember they were hard to find for a while even. Just like Tickle Me Elmo was in that same time frame I think (I got an Elmo for my son as a toddler)

No younguns here, but I wish I had cute toys like this when I was a kid.

When my son was little I thought how cool all the new toys were, but they just keep coming out with cooler stuff – of course the classics still stand the test of time too

Gosh I remember when those furbies where the rage. No one could find any of them! I am a thrift store fiend and a year or so later there were so many furbies it was nuts. I love the Elmos- too cute!

Yep, I remember doing lots of Furby giveaways on my sweepstakes website when they were first around. They were so popular!
