The Gift Giver Guide

December 11, 2016 - Blog

It is very easy for me to shop for my kid’s holiday gifts. I’m around them everyday and know what they want – mostly because I make them write a wish list to ‘Santa’. But finding gifts for other members of my family is another story. So I’ve put together some great gift ideas for you – so you can spend more time sipping hot chocolate and less time searching the internet.




The Cloud B Sweet Dreamz On The Go plays 4 lullabies, 4 soothing sounds, including “shhh” and Mother’s heartbeat.  It has a soft amber nightlight and a sound sensor that reactivates when baby wakes. Plus, it easily attaches to strollers and car seats so you can take it from crib to on-the-go. Retails for $24.99 and available online or gift/baby stores across Canada.




This Cloud B Charley The Chameleon is perfect for the new big kid. This plush body pillow is the perfect companion for kids that are transitioning from crib to their own big bed! It glows in a rainbow of colours, is ultra soft, and sings a variety of soothing Rainforest and Tropical tunes.  The cuddly companion helps little one’s transition from playtime to sleep time with scales that light up to ease fear of the dark and soothing sounds that help make every kid feel safer at night. Plus, Charley auto shuts off after 45 minutes, so batteries will not be wasted away!  Retails for $39.99. It’s available online or gift/baby stores across Canada. You can buy these products guilt- free as a percentage of sales are donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

For kids a little big older, no more cliché Barbie or Tonka Trucks – instead you can get gifts that introduce them to robotics with Hexbug products. HEXBUG was designed to give children a positive experience with robotics at a young age.




HEXBUG® Cuddlebots™. These cute little cuddlebots are motorized and child safe toys with squishable bodies that vibrate and scurry across the floor, instigating playtime, anytime. Available in two styles Betty Bumblebee and Freddy Firefly. Plus, we loved that Betty Bumblebee smells like flowers! Ages 18-36 mo. Retails for $11.99. Available online




HEXBUG® nano® Nitro™ Habitat Set

This playset features simple snap together pieces that allow you to create customizable playgrounds for nano-critters to explore. Nano Nitro is a micro robotic bug that once switched on, can skitter its way through any maze and even chase a fellow nano Nitro in a high-speed race! Designed to foster children’s creativity, develop fine-motor skills, and fuel hours of amusement, this set gets kids to think about simple construction techniques as well as the science behind the toy. Available at Toys R Us ($29.99) and Mastermind Toys ($34.99). Ages 3 and up.
