On Tuesday I had the great pleasure of attending the TTPM Holiday Showcase that unveiled the most popular toys, trends and pet products! Let me just say that I felt like a kid again. I had a blast playing with slime, hitting targets, experimenting with virtual reality and making crafts!
TTPM is a leading review site for toys, tots, pets and more. It is the number one resource for consumers to find and buy toys, pet products, baby gear, kids electronics etc.. easily. Their 2017 Holiday showcase included over 70 exhibitors and over 250 members of the press were in attendance (including yours truly). They also unveiled their 2017 most wanted toys list that you can view HERE. I am going to share with you some of my highlights and the toys that really caught my attention.
Rubie's Pet Shop
These pups in costumes were too precious! Rubie's Pet Shop is a new line of pet costumes and accessories from Rubie's Costume Company, which is the world's largest designer and manufacturer of costumes! They got you covered for all Holidays from Halloween, Christmas to even Valentine's day. I have two kitties and I have to admit I like to dress them up to take a cute Holiday photo.
This is a toy that both your kids and dog will love! The Nerf Dog Large Tennis Ball Blaster is gun that picks up the tennis ball for you (no more touching slobbery tennis balls) and you can "blast" the ball in the air for your pup to retrieve. It was simple and safe to operate. I had fun trying the blaster out.
Inflate-a-mals are not your everyday stuffed animals. These toys inflate and are very light weight. They come in various sizes include a 6 ft tall giraffe!! I thought this was very cool.
Wubble Bubble Ball
Do your kids break all their toys? Well I can guaranteed that the Wubble Bubble ball is indestructible! They won't break this. It is a ball that looks like a bubble and is squishy, soft and lightweight. I can see kids playing with this for hours.
I have never tried virtual reality before so I was super excited to try Skyrocket's VRSE VR Entertainment System. They had Jurassic World and Batman. I tried out the Batman and it was so cool to be immersed into Gotham City. I am definitely intrigued and interested in VR gaming.
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a custom little cupcake! I LOVE cupcakes! Sweetlings is a fun DIY toy that allows youngsters to make custom cupcakes, cake pops, donuts and more! It comes with whipped clay as the frosting and a bunch of other accessories. Just let it dry overnight. I think this is a cute craft activity.
An interactive baby monkey that clings to your finger! Do I need to say more? Fingerlings are super adorable and react to sound, motion and touch and even make monkey noises. I wanted to take this little baby monkey home with me.
Soft'n Slo Squishes
Like I previously mentioned I really love cupcakes and when I saw these it caught my attention. While I know this is meant to be a kids, toy, I am seriously considering getting these for everyone at the office. Soft'n Slo Squishes are so fun to squeeze and to me it is an upgrade to a stress ball. They are very soft and rise slowly. They come in all sorts of fun varieties like ice cream cones, cupcakes, cookies, cake and even pancakes!
Here are some other fun pictures and a video from the showcase....
