As a mom of 2 young girls, as you can imagine, our house is filled with lots of pink and sparkles and all things princess. So, when it comes to the holidays, finding new and unique toys can be tough! That’s why I was so thrilled to have come across this Babbleboxx, filled with ALL the things for young girls (that won’t just sit and collect dust)!
1) Book: Will You Be My Friend?
Written by Sam McBratney and Illustrated by Anita Jeram, this adorable tale is all about friendship, and is the sequel to the classic picture book Guess How Much I Love You. Playful, warm, lyrical, and exquisitely illustrated, this story offers a loving portrayal of a young child’s growing independence, and is definitely one of our new favorite children’s friendship books! Check it out for yourself, here: http://candlewick.com/r/bemyfriend-babbleboxx
2) Silly Skaters Unicorn Inflatable Ride-On Toy from Kid Trax
(MSRP: $39/ Ages 1-3 years)
My girls are ALL about unicorns and my youngest loves a good ride-on toy, so when I saw this fun Silly Skaters Unicorn ride-on toy by Kid Trax, I knew she would love it! Soft and easily inflatable thanks to the included air pump, this Unicorn is made of a durable rubber material and even has motion activated LEDs so the skates light up as they ride!

3) Let’s Talk Conversation Starters
Grab-n-Go Conversation Cards / Let’s Jokes! / Let’s Think! / Let’s Talk! from Open the Joy
I don’t know about your kids, but sometimes getting kids to say anything more than “good” or “ok” can be like pulling teeth! That’s why I was so excited about these fun conversation starters for kids! From intriguing questions like “Do you think rules are meant to be broken?” to kid-loving jokes that will have them in that deep belly laugh for hours, these grab-n-go cards are a great way to promote family bonding – and a great idea for stocking stuffers too!
Created by a mom whose child was diagnosed with an incurable disease at the age of 6-months, she started this company to focus on healing through play – which is just what it does! And my favorite part is that Open the Joy partners with the Spread the Joy Foundation – a registered 501(c)3, in the distribution of free activity kits to hospitalized kids across America. Through your purchase, you help in their mission of spreading joy to sick kids, one Joy box at a time!

4) Box of 4 Assorted Soaps from the Best-Selling Kids Collections and Hand Cleansing Spray from Beloved Bath
What girl doesn’t love good-smelling bath products? And these ones from Beloved Bath definitely don’t disappoint! Available in fun shapes that are perfect for little hands, not only do they smell great, they are also phthalate-free, vegan, and use natural colorants (plus eco-friendly glitter too)!
The hand-cleansing spray also smells great, is perfect for on-the-go, and is skin-friendly, and contains sustainably sourced, non-GMO alcohol mixed with a citrus essential oil blend and deionized water.
My favorite part of it all? Beloved Bath is all about creating feel-good gifts that make a social impact. As a company founded by moms who have children with autism, they work hard to create a joyous, purposeful work environment for their children and others who have autism, as well. They also donate a portion of each sale to non-profits that provide vocational training for people with autism.

5) Tinycorns from Baby Alive
As I mentioned earlier, my girls LOVE unicorns plus all things dolls for that matter. So, when you mix the two together you can bet my girls are going to go nuts – which is exactly what they did when they first met their Baby Alive Tinycorns doll! Available in a variety of unicorn styles and with various hair colors too, these fairytale dolls actually drink and wet – which is why they come with a diaper! Just be prepared to have to buy multiples, because your girls won’t want to put them down!
Teaching kids a mix of responsibility and fantasy, you can find these dolls exclusively at Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Only-at-Walmart-Baby-Alive-Tinycorns-Doll-UnicornDrinks-Wets/506651665?selected=true
6) Play On! from Bay Area Children’s Theatre
Looking for something fun and screen-free to keep kids of all ages occupied this winter season? Then you definitely need to check out the various subscription kits (that are also sold individually) from Play On! These audio-musical adventures coupled with a storytelling kit, allow your kids to choose their own adventure experience that they can do on their own. The kits are as follows:
- Play On! Discover (Age 3-5): https://www.playonkit.com/discover
- Play On! Adventure (Age 5-10): https://www.playonkit.com/adventure
- Play On! Holiday (Whole Family): https://www.playonkit.com/holiday
We received Play On! Adventure – The Ice Cream Factory Fiasco. This Agent 11 Adventure consists of a major meltdown; the mission: to save the day! The kids got to run around, make choices and solve puzzles in this musical secret agent adventure – and had the biggest blast doing it!
Bonus Gift Idea: A DIY Arts and Crafts Kit
Rather than buying presents, why not try your hand at preparing them yourself? A great gift option for your creative girls is DIY arts and crafts kits. Since you’re organizing it yourself, you get to choose the things that they love to include in the kits. From delicate seed beads and semiprecious gemstones to gorgeous glitters and floral embellishments, the sky’s the limit to what to put in your DIY kits!
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy watching your kids open and play with their presents as much as I do!
