Traditional advent calendars are super-cool anyways, but LEGO Friends advent calendars are totally, amazingly, oh-so-much cooler. For little girlies who love surprises, there are 24 doors, each with a LEGO Friends, collectible, holiday-themed gift inside. What a great Christmas countdown
Snuggles is an obvious cutie with his sweet expression, fluffed fur, and expressive, loving eyes. This pup is playful and lively, but he also loves to be nurtured and cared for. Hence the bottle and his adorable reaction to cuddles. Include a bright-blue, write-on dog collar and an adoption certificate.
Pet dragons are the coolest, obviously. But Torch, the Blazin’ Dragon, is fiery, adorable fun for girlies who love fantasy critters. With his fuzz-topped ears and soft, squishy body, this baby dragon takes the proverbial cake for cuteness. But he also talks and responds to touch with over 50 sounds.
This beautiful blondie, dubbed a Baby Go Bye Bye, needs a name. And I am positive your girlie-girl would love to be this dollie’s new “mommy.” Kinda like a realistic baby, this cutie drinks her bottle, wets her nappy, and reacts to her “mom’s” voice. Includes an adorable baby carrier.
Last year it was Shopkins. This year, Num Noms are the newest “in” toys. You know, the must-haves that every little girl wants for Christmas. Inclusive of the Cherry Scoop collectible, Truck Craft is an artsy, ice cream themed station where girlies can create their own delicious, sweet-scented lip glosses.
Every passing year marks a new Christmas ensemble for Barbie. This year, the blonde beauty is decked out in a dip-dyed evening gown with sparkles across the bottom and a jeweled bodice. This Holiday Doll is a collectible, of course.
Lockitz are a new arts-and-crafts must-have for creative, imaginative cuties. Most often used to symbolize friendship and uniqueness, these locket-shaped clippies are reusable and snap onto almost anything. The Memory Studio station makes necklaces, keychains, and bracelets for outfit accents.
Barbie is no stranger to dream homes, but her latest dream house might be the best yet. The Hello Dream House brings Barbie into the digital world with WiFi-enabled voice recognition, motorized everything, and switches that bring the house to life. This is totally BYOB though (Bring Your Own Barbie).
Emma and her parents, Mom and Dad, live their lives with funny sounds, quirky phrases, and a bunch of sing-along songs. These Little People are in a little house, decked out in pink, and foldable from the core. Includes lots-a furniture pieces for rearranging and DIY interior design. Too cute!
Definitely my favorite toy on the list. The Ice Cream Castle is a Play-Doh ice cream maker that swirls and scoops heaping bowlfuls and cone-fuls of yummy (non-edible) desserts. I love the colors and overall idea, but the cute sprinkles, “whipped cream,” and cookie-shaped cut-outs are the absolute best decorations.
