Favorite Amazon Kids Toys – Christmas 2015
Our Favorite Amazon Kids Toys – Christmas 2015
These are our picks for Our Favorite Amazon Kids Toys for the 2015 holiday season. These toys may not be toys you have even seen yet but they are toys and games we have had the chance to examine, play with and review! So we will list our favorites here on a running list. Be sure to check this blog post frequently because there will be more added as we find more that are worth telling you about! 🙂 Happy Shopping!
ONE. Click n’ Play Doll Salon Chair and Accessories
This Doll salon chair is perfectly sized for the American Girl Dolls and Cabbage Patch Kid sized dolls – to give you a good size reference. Oh my goodness, The Click n’ Play Doll Salon Chair is absolutely adorable! This toy snapped together with total ease. There is only 2 screws that need to be installed – they hold the plastic piece that holds the doll chair foot rest in place. Once you install the foot rest, you just snap the chair into the base and the doll salon chair is ready to be played with!
The purple base of the chair has a lever to make the chair rise (like a real salon chair does) and another release lever to make it go back down! I was really surprised to see this functionality! The realism makes it so much more fun for the kids! This is why we selected this chair for our Favorite Amazon Kids Toys for Christmas 2015! The cushion on the chair is nicely sewn and has a satin feel to it. There is a purple waste belt on the chair to hold the dolls in place that fastens around the doll with a velcro clasp.
The Click n’ Play Doll Salon Chair also comes with a hairdryer, brush, flat iron, 2 curlers that actually come apart and can be put into dolls hair or even a little girls hair! Also comes with 2 portioning clips.
I did have to show my niece how to operate the lever, but she pretty much figured out everything else on her own. She is 7. I have another niece that is 3 years old that really didn’t know what to do with it exactly and tried to sit on it herself but she still enjoyed it. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review.
I would say this would be a great toy but beware it might be too old for anyone under 6. It is labeled to be for a child 6 years old or older. Below I showed pictures or all of the contents and illustrated how to install the foot rest because it was a little tricky for a moment. You will need a small phillips head screwdriver. Anything too big will likely strip the screws. BUY NOW ON AMAZON
TWO. Last Mouse Lost & Go Bong! One Piece Games by FoxMind
“Last Mouse Lost” is the coolest little game! The game play is really simple but its still really fun! I absolutely love that there are NO pieces to lose! You just grab the little rubber cheese wheel and go! I received this game at a discount in exchange for my honest review. We keep ours stuffed in the little pocket behind the passenger seat of our car – so there is ALWAYS a fun little game for the kids to play. They love playing it. It says ages 5+, but our 3 year old niece loves playing it, too.
How it is played: Each player takes turned pushing down ANY number of buttons – but they have to be in the same row or column. Then the 2 players take turns pushing down their number of buttons they choose. The person to push the LAST button…LOSES!
There is a certain amount of strategy that goes into winning the game, which is wonderful for the kids. I played it with my husband a few time and won! 🙂 The rubber seems pretty durable and seems like it will last quite a while and it seems like you can even be a little rough with it. (which is good since kids aren’t exactly gentle). I can see why this toy got the “National Parenting Center Seal of Approval” and received an award from Dr. Toys for “Best Vacation Toy” for 2014! LOVE THIS ONE! BUY NOW ON AMAZON
Go Bong! Can be played exactly the same way. We play it that way. Go Bong! Does come with an instruction book that shows several other games that can be played with the toy – both multiplayer and solitaire type games! These games are so versatile and right now they are only $8.95 – $9.95 each on Amazon! BUY NOW ON AMAZON
THREE. “ALIAS” the Board Game!
Oh my gosh! Alias is such a fun game! We played this last night with my sister and her family and wow! You basically set up in teams. Then each team chooses a color pawn for moving on the board. Your team selects a number and then you have to try explaining the word corresponding to the number word they selected…without using the word! MUCH harder to do than you would think and SUPER funny! We had SO much fun with this game. Everyone is coming over next week just to play it. It’s like charades – but with words and without all the acting. We received this product at a discount in exchange for our honest opinion. All I can really say is it is FUN and super easy to learn to play! I have included photos below so you can see what is included in the box. There are quite a few card – so you will be able to play this game many times without getting a repeat word! I photographed the instructions as well 🙂 MORE INFO…

Four. DealZip Girls Vintage Style Floppy Hat
I purchased this DealZip Vintage Style Floppy Hat for my niece so that she could play dress-up. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review. This hat is made of wool and felt. Inside the hat is a black hat band that has a draw string in it so that you can size it according to the size of your child’s head. My niece wear a size 24 months and I was able to size it small enough for her and actually could have made it smaller! When I received the hat, it came in an envelope and was a little squished but as soon as I popped it back into shape it stayed in shape. It did not get ruined. Its made of felt but is clearly a high quality felt. I think this hat could certainly be worn for any dress up occasion or just used to play “dress-up”. Its a fun little inexpensive hat and I definitely recommend it.
