Last month the kids and I traveled down to New York City to take part in Blogger Bash ’14. A two day conference that focused on all things play related. Hosted by Charlene DeLoach and Joey Fortman, Blogger Bash was an action packed time of discovering fun new products for kids and learning about the brands behind the products.
Part conference and part playdate, Blogger Bash was a great way to learn about toys and baby products that will certainly be a huge hit this holiday season. It was fun to get a sneak peek of the newest toys and even more fun to give them a test drive before the season starts.
Let me show you some of the products we got to play with…
Care Bears were popular in my day. How cool is it that they are also popular with my own kids? It’s hard to resist a Care Bear. Did you know that they have a Facebook page? I didn’t either. I wonder if there’s a Social Media Bear. Or maybe a Twitter Bear. I have an entire line I could suggest.
My girls were rather smitten with the Palace Pets. That’s probably because I refuse to get them their own dog. I have a lot to say about that. A whole blog post even. But let’s just leave it at that a robotic dog totally works for me right about now.
Are your kids into Minecraft? Check out this Minecraft sheep. How cute is that? My kids are totally into Minecraft and this sheep got tons of oooohs and ahhhs. You can bet this will be listed on one of my kids wish lists this holiday season.
While at Blogger Bash, we attended the KidzVuz Back to School Bash which showcased some amazing brands like Lands’ End , PlayDoh, Speck and tons of other brands that were showcasing their back to school wares. We were so very impressed with the Lands’ End backpacks. Well made and super cute with tons of kid friendly styles.
If you haven’t heard of KidzVuz, you should really check it out. It’s a place where kid’s provide video reviews of all kinds of cool stuff like movies, books, food products, games, etc. A great way for kids to share their opinions on products they know best!
But Leela’s favorite product from the KidVuz Back to School Bash was the Guardians of The Galaxy Rocket Raccoon Mask. She had so much fun with that thing. Her big brother did too but there was no way that he was going to allow me to take a picture!
Blogger Bash was tremendous fun. Getting a jump start on learning about new toys for the holiday season is always a blast. But even better is that they sent me a big box of toys to share with my readers! Would you like to win a sampling of toys from Blogger Bash? I thought you might like that.
