Why You Should Buy Timeless Toys This Holiday Season
This post is sponsored by Mattel but all thoughts, ideas, and opinions are my own.
Can you believe the holiday season is upon us? We need to get moving!
I always try to think practically when I am shopping for Avery for the holidays. I know for myself and many others, we tend to get caught up in the sales and the trends and want to spoil our lovely kids with all kinds of fun new toys. Then February comes, and they just aren’t into them anymore. I want to avoid that this year, so that is why I am going timeless as much as possible with Avery’s gifts!
What does that mean? Well, I look at it like this.
If there is a toy that I loved as a kid and it is still around today – that is staying power my friends and nothing comes to mind like my first Barbie®. Try to remember the joy you felt with your first toy or the one doll or game you just could not stop playing with as a kid. For me, that was Barbie®, and I think Avery is finally at the age to get into the wonderful world of Barbie® herself!
We recently had the pleasure of checking out the Barbie® Pop-Up Camper, and this thing was incredible!
I love the Barbie® Pop-Up Camper because it has three levels of fun and tons of fun little additions like s’mores and a fire pit, a slide, a pool, a hammock and in true Barbie® style, even a chandelier. It fits the dolls perfectly of course, but Avery can also incorporate all her other favorite toys as pets and friends too and have hours of fun.
Seriously, she has played with it for hours already! I love that when she is done, all three levels condense down and it is easily driven into it’s “parking spot” in the corner of her room.
