If you’re going out shopping some time this week, consider buying something Valentine-themed for your little ones! Below are some ideas from Hasbro, one of the largest toy makers in the world! I’ll be going to Toy Fair in NYC next week, and will hopefully bring back lots of news from Hasbro and other fun brands about what will be hot in the toy universe this year.

Scrabble Valentine’s Day Card Kit & Game
The perfect gift for a Scrabble-lover, this kit lets you tell that special someone just how you feel with a customized, Scrabble-style greeting card. Just choose your letter tiles, then place them on top of the card with the provided adhesive dots. With the leftover tiles you can grab a quick game of Scrabble on the heart-shaped gameboard. Maybe you can even score some bonus points for using romantic words like love, kiss or hug! Includes blank greeting card, 100 wooden letter tiles, packet of adhesive dots, mini-gameboard grid (on bottom of heart box), envelope and quick game guide. For ages 8 and up. $7.99
With the exception of the board game, I saw all the products above at Target, but I’m sure you could also find them at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, and other retailers, as well as www.hasbrotoyshop.com. I spied the Valentine’s Day Scrabble in the games section at my local Barnes & Noble. As these are seasonal items, be sure to call ahead to see if your local store still has them in stock.
