This weekend I caught up with some very good friends, ate some delicious food, laughed until I cried, reminisced a little, and learned a lot. I spent my Saturday night with an amazing group of social media influencers at a charming holiday event, the Fisher Price Show Room. It was a Girls Night In hosted by Lena, of Listen to Lena, and a fabulous way to spend an evening!
Are you curious about what happens at these events? For me, it’s a rare opportunity to see some on-line friends in real life, get caught up, and learn about a brand and all they have to offer at the same time. It’s multi-tasking at it’s very finest. To get our evening started, our hostess Lena had arranged for the very best in food and drink! Drinks were served, and delectable hor’dourves were passed.
As our little crowd got caught up we chatted, and tweeted! Bloggers never stray too far from our beloved smart phones.
There was time for some picture taking too!
As we shared what we learned with our audiences, we had the pleasure of helping to give away a Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages Chair to some of the wonderful tweeps tweeting along with us!
Fisher Price is a name that is known and trusted by Moms and Parents. I grew up playing with Fisher Price, and so did my girls. Now I buy Fisher Price for my SassyNephew and never hesitate to recommend this brand to my readers. As we chatted and browsed the many toys on display I was thrilled to see the classic Corn Popper and Chatter Telephone is still around, and as popular as ever. Sometimes, nothing beats the original classic toys!
Did you know the Chatter Telephone has been making little one’s happy since 1961? With an average retail price of only $7.99 it might be the perfect classic toy to hide under tree this year!
Another amazing thing about being invited to an event like this? You get the inside scoop on the HOTTEST toys for the Holiday Season! Here’s my picks for what will be flying off the shelves this Christmas, and what you should be keeping your eyes open for in 2015!!
Keep an eye out for the brand new 4 in 1 Glide Smoother! Not only does it gently vibrate to help soothe the baby to sleep, but it is stunning! It almost makes me think I should have another baby. Almost!
This pretty little number can rock or glide head-to-toe or side to side! It has convenient foot pedal operation so you can turn the gliding motion on or off, as well as control the music and nature sounds we all love to help soothe baby. It has a portable seat, and removable toy bar. Best of all it has an average retail price of $179.99!
Another hot pick. The Woodland Space Saver Jumparoo! (Where was this when my babes were little?) Only Jumparoo folds flat! Perfect for smaller spaces, cottages or Grandma’s house! As baby jumps, they are rewarded with music, sounds and lights! So much fun! Important to note the soft fabric seat easily removes for washing. Retailing at $89.99 I predict many happy jumping babies this Christmas!
As the evening wore on and the guests funnelled our I found myself reflecting on how truly blessed I am this Christmas. An amazing family, good friends, great job, and lots to look forward to in 2015. I hope you are all gearing up for a beautiful holiday season and a blessed new year.
Sending out huge thanks to Lena and all the hard working people behind the scenes of the Fisher Price Show Room for a very sweet Girls Night Out. Now I’m off to do some Holiday shopping!
