If you’re looking to add to your kids’ construction sets this holiday season, consider KRE-O. It’s the hot new brand introduced by Hasbro over the summer!
Reasons why I think KRE-O is such a perfect holiday gift for your kids:
- KRE-O is ‘more than meets the eye!’ Each Transformer may look like just a robot, but it deconstructs to create a vehicle. Disassemble the vehicle to build a robot again. Twice the fun in one! Kids ages 6 and up will love ’em!
- KRE-O works with other leading construction brands. You know. Those. So you don’t have to worry that you’re investing in a whole new system, or figure out how to keep them separate.
- KRE-O sets are seriously affordable! From $7.99 from a basic set with 75 pieces (pictured below), to a super deluxe set at $59.99, I’d say these are definitely a good value compared to other brands.
- KRE-O is a great way to introduce your kids to the Transformers brand, which may be dear to your heart (or your husband’s) from when you were a child. You can play (and reminisce) together!
Speaking of playing together, that’s something that my kids and I do everyday, of course, but during the holidays it’s, well, different. There’s something infectious about holiday cheer. It’s our favorite time of year. From December 1st on, we read a holiday-themed book everyday. Open a little Advent gift. Make a Christmas ornament for the tree (which sometimes don’t last until Christmas!). Bake cookies every afternoon. Christmas carols are always playing in the background. You’ll often find us sipping hot chocolate while watching our favorite Christmas movies snuggled together on the couch, just taking it easy!
I try to get my necessary shopping done ahead of time, usually online, so in the days before Christmas I can calmly stroll through the mall with the girls and let them pick some gifts for others. And visit Santa, of course. Sometimes even more than once. They always forget something that first time that they have to run back and tell him a few days later. After all, a letter might not get to the North Pole in time. And apparently Santa doesn’t do email, according to Maya, my 7-year-old. I think she asked him!
For many people, the holidays are anything but cheerful, but that doesn’t have to be the case! Make it fun. Relax. Create unique traditions with your family and you’ll see how easy it is to keep everyone’s spirits bright!
