Christmas Toy Favorites!

*Hi Everyone! I took an unintentional blogging break this week, spending a lot of time with family and friends and enjoying every bit of this holiday season. I will return with my regular 3-4 posts a week in the New Year. For today, I've written a quick little post about my children's favorite gifts this Christmas!

I hope that all of you who celebrate had a very Merry Christmas! I know we did. Christmas morning was full of magic as the anticipation of the season finally culminated in Santa's arrival. Stephanie was thrilled as she ran into the living room and delighted in the stuffed stockings and piles of brightly wrapped gifts under the tree. She shrieked with excitement over each gift and took each one out to play with as she opened it.

Joseph was a little more subdued, often getting overwhelmed by his sister's enthusiasm. But he too enjoyed ripping off the wrapping paper and playing with his new toys. We spent the day in our own home, welcoming my parents, grandparents and sister in the afternoon for Christmas dinner.

It was a day full of good food, conversation, and holiday spirit.

As the kids have continued to play with their new toys these past few days, a few clear favorites have emerged.

Joseph is particularly enjoying his Fisher- Price Laugh and Learn: Learning Piggy Bank

And his Fisher-Price Little People Zoo Talkers Animal Sounds Zoo

(The zoo is actually a big hit with Stephanie too!)

Of the toys Stephanie received, her favorite by far is the Crayola Magnetic Double Easel

She's also loving Bell, the interactive storybook buddy, who is the companion to her beloved Jingle

Did your kids love their gifts? Did you? What were their (and your) favorites this year?


  1. I'm glad you had a nice Christmas!
    We have had the learning pig since my 8 year old was a baby. All my kids have loved it.
    My 16 month old got the learning zoo, my kids got an easel to share, and my 5 year old got Jingle the Puppy. The girls love their Furby and dollhouse and my son loves his games and Legos.

    1. How funny that our little ones got so many of the same things! I didn't even realize furbys were still around, lol! :)

  2. oh my gosh! the piggie! i'd forgotten all about him! my kids used to have it and loved that toy. :) favorites this christmas were roxx trixx stadium, bey blades and skylanders giants. *cry*

    1. That piggy seems like a popular one! I love him too, I have to say. And, I have never heard of any of those toys that your boys! I guess they are things i'll have to look forward to in a few years :)
