Hasbro has some incredible gift ideas for kids for the festive season, and if you’re short of ideas, read on for some ideas.
My kids were sent a Hasbro gift each to try out (and love) – Max got the Nerf Fortnite RL blaster, and Rebecca got the Play-Doh Popping Party. These are among the kids’ respective best brands, so it wasn’t a surprise that these were so appreciated and loved.
The Fortnite RL blaster combines two of my son’s fave things – Nerf and Fortnite. This one is inspired by the blaster used in the popular video game, and fires big foam rockets, with flexible hollow tips.
Max describes it as “blaster fun, easy and great to use”.
The Play-Doh Popcorn Party has taken centre stage among all of Rebecca’s other sets, and she’s now feeding us “popcorn” whenever we’re near a TV. The set comes with six colours of Play-Doh, a popcorn machine, buckets, food toppings and moulds, and even a syrup tool.
I love that with Play-Doh, even when kids aren’t making “perfect” creations, there is still lots of creative and imaginative play happening.
Here are some other Hasbro great gift ideas for kids – for the festive season and beyond.
