Hog Wild Toys Holiday Gift Guide #review #HolidayGiftGuide

*disclaimer - these products were given to me by Hog Wild Toys for my honest opinion and as a Holiday Gift Guide 2015. All views are 100% my own.

Christmas is right around the corner. Some of us have finished our Christmas shopping, but some of us need to finish and some need to start, me being one of those ones that need to start. Here are 4 toys from Hog Wild Toys that will make outstanding gifts for children of all ages!!

SuperMax The Turtle
This little turtle is just the greatest! My 2 year old daughter loves her turtle and sleeps with him everynight. It was a fight to get it from her to take the pictures of it. The second she saw it come out of the box, she took off with it and she will not let anyone touch it. She loves the stars and moon on her ceiling and wall. You can have it on one single color (blue, red, or green) or you can have it rotate through the 3 colors. She likes to see all three of the colors. She takes it everywhere with her, when she wakes up in the morning she brings him out into the living room with her, when we go to the grocery store he has to come with her. Having SuperMax the Turtle has even helped us with getting her off of taking a sippy cup to bed with her at night. She calls him her SuperMax Ninja Turtle. This little turtle really lights up a room and will calm your little one to sleep no matter where you are. The book that comes with SuperMax is so cute, we try to make it a nightly routine where we will read the book before going to bed. We will have at least one light on so that we can read the book and she will have SuperMax lighten up as well. This little, but awesome, turtle is $21.95 and comes in blue or pink. If you go here you can find the closest store to you that may have one, authorized online retailers, or you can shop on If you shop you can choose between 6 categories: sight, sound, touch, multi sensory, accessories and gift bundles. I already have a few friends that are going to be purchasing SuperMax the Turtle for their little ones to have in their bedroom at night!

Hog Wild Unicorn Poppers

I got the White Sunshine Unicorn Popper and my daughter loves it!! It comes with 6 rainbown balls and a mesh bag to put them in. When my niece is over (I babysit her), Cheyanne and Charlotte will play with it for hours! It is a great toy for a rainy day play for toddlers. I will be getting more of these so I have various ones for them to choose from. These little foam balls are night to have because if the girls get hit in the head or face with one, they aren't screaming or crying because it hurts. They will also have the cats chase the balls around and they get a kick out of it! You can go here to purchase them for $9.99 each.

About Hog Wild Unicorn Poppers:
Magnificent rainbows are popping near you! Introducing three new Unicorn Poppers that shoot rainbow colored soft foam balls - up to 20 feet! Just squeeze the belly of the unicorn and shoot out a soft foam ball. Six balls come with each of the Unicorn Poppers.


Zing Firetek Zeon Bow

My 3 boys love the Firetek Zeon Bow! The bows light up, so the boys make their own targets and will turn off the lights and shoot at their targets. These bows can shoot so far that the pressure of them hitting the window makes a really loud noise and almost sounds like they are going to go right through the window. When it's not raining and it's the weekend, we will go outside when the sun goes down, turn the lights on on the bows and shoot them through the court yard at the apartments that we live in. The boys have made a game out of it, it's a game of tag. They have to hit someone with one of the arrows, whoever is hit with the arrow then they are it. These are great and awesome toys to have for boys and girls. You can purchase these at Target, Walmart, Toys-R-Us,, Sports Authority, and Academy Sports Outdoors. **Names, Prices and Availability dates are subject to change. To find a store closest to you, go here or you can go here to purchase them online.

IDO3D Pens

All 4 of my kids love these IDO3D pens, heck even I love these pens. These are so great even for family time together. My kids and I sat down at the table and figured out what we wanted to make. We each took turns making the ones that we liked. My 2 year old daughter and I made a rainbown and each one of my boys made a dinosaur. The sheet that I got with my set of pens (which was a set of 4 pens, but 3 colors - 1 green, 1 yellow, and 2 red), only had a dinosaur, flower, and rainbow. The boys were having a blast with it. They each took turns holding the light for each other to help each other out. These pens have actually helped bring my sons closer together. They tend to fight a lot, but when we got these pens they started to get closer together. When I am able to, I am going to purchase more of the colors of the pens and I when I can get my printer working again, I will be printing out more downloadable 3D projects. The ones that the boys want to try out next are Glasses, Lizard, Monster Truck, Octopus, Race Car, Train, and Tri-Plane. My daughter wants her and I to make a Ladybug, Mermaid Princess, Unicorn, Fairy, and Flower Bracelet. I can't wait to get more colors of the pens and be able to print off these new projects! These make some awesome gifts for children and even some adults!
