Sofia is very much involved in my blogging, she asks when she will be “on my internet page” next, she asks if I need any help “writing the words” and always always asks to “send them a pitch” when she see’s a new toy hit the market that she want. What can I say, she is a born blogger?! Naturally when I was bringing together this years Holiday Gift Guides I knew that I needed her help in a big way…

Sofia, help me, what would a girl your age want for Christmas this year?

This year we’ve partnered with a few amazing companies who have graciously offered our readers a chance at winning some of these gifts to start checking things off their children’s wish list. Thank you Pinhole Press and Maplelea for partnering with us and making two of our readers Holiday shopping that much easier!

…and so it goes:

>> Pinhole Press Finger Puppets (WIN IT): This company is so amazing, Pinhole Press. They makes custom gift items that are not only adorable and fun but affordable. This holiday they came out with a bunch of new designs including these Finger Puppets. Create 9 custom puppets out of your child’s family and friends and take make-believe into the real world. Sofia says these would fit perfectly into her stocking (and then she made a winking face). 

>> Pinhole Press Family Dominoes (WIN IT): Another amazing product from Pinhole Press, takes family games night to the next level with this brilliant Dominoes set. How fun would it be to surprise your family with a competitive game of Dominoes based on matching up their own face? As if you needed another reason to laugh during family games night. 

>> Maplelea Doll (WIN IT): This doll has been on Sofia’s Christmas Wish List now going on 2 years; I know mean mama or what?! The 18″ girl is meant to be more than just a doll, all with the hours of hair styling and dressing up they’re meant to promote creative play and healthy, active lifestyles, while fostering a love and interest in Canadian culture, heritage and geography. The perfect doll for a little Canadian girl, or a Canadian at heart! 

>> Osmo Game System: Sofia and I are both so in love with Osmo and it’s not just because we have a bit of an obsession with tech-toys. Osmo is a learning based game system that connects with your tablet allowing the child to learn while playing games; from a pizza chef, cashier, to a jig-saw master, spelling-bee champion and even a mini Picasso. You must see Osmo to believe it, this is a game system I would more than happy to let Sofia play with for hours on end. 

>> Hatchimal: Clearly by the statement recently put out by the makers of Hatchimal, we won’t be the only ones with this on their wish lists. This toy is sold out everywhere and if you haven’t already purchased one, either start hoping for a Christmas Miracle or offer up your first born to someone who has. These little creatures are the next best thing to a real pet,  parents rejoice! STOP! don’t buy them that whining, pooping, slobbering puppy, buy them a Hatchimal! Hatching from a giant egg, these little creatures grow through stages of life, baby, toddler and into a kid all with the help of your child. 

>> Lost My Name Book:  Books are always a great gift, but a custom book… that’s love. Lost My Name Book designs stories that take your child on an adventure like no other. Fun stories, gorgeous illustrations and better yet a main character that your child will truly resonate with. 

>> Tool Kit: Sofia has been asking for “her own” tools for the past few months now. I mean what child doesn’t want to take nails to wood? Building is what they grew up on, from play-doh to lego, we give our children equipment to build and make believe because childhood is amazing (and we’re awesome parents). Tons on the market for tool sets but this one looked extra adorable to me. Good one Lowes, you win this time! <<Lowes 1 — Home Depot 0>>
