Crunch time is near and you are searching for last minute gifts.  Here are a couple of games, movies, TV show DVD and video games for your stocking stuffers.


Celebrating 45 years a classic movie that should be in your collection. Sweet Frosty the Snowman comes alive when a magical hat is placed on his head.  His first words are "HAPPY BIRTHDAY."  This collector's edition features New, Be An Artist & Create - learn to draw Frosty & Santa from a professional animator. New, Frosty Snowflake Surprises - revealing 45 fun facts about Frosty. This DVD includes Frosty Returns and running time is 48 minutes.

Walt Disney Short Films collection includes 12 short films in one DVD.  You will see Frozen Fever, Feast, Mickey Mouse cartoon - Get a Horse!, Paperman, Tangled Ever After, The Ballad of Nessie and more. Bonus is you get the behind the scene of how a short film is developed and produced. The DVD running time is 79 minutes.


 My son loves Nickelodeon's the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  and I jumped at the chance to review the TMNT Return to NYC! This DVD includes: Vision Quest, Return to NY, Serpent Hunt, The Pig & The Rhino, Battle for NY (2 part episode), Casey Jones vs. The Underworld. The running time is 157 minutes.

As you know from my previous post, my daughter Ashley loves Caillou.  I was sent Caillou's Christmas, Peg + Cat A Totally Awesome Christmas, WordWorld Building Readers and the Odd Squad Reindeer Games - A Mission to Save Christmas. Each video's running time is 60 minutes. 


My son loves Minecraft.  Did you know there is a new Minecraft it's Story Mode video game. It is available now for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.  A must for any kid this xmas.

Just Dance 2016 is the new edition to the Just Dance video game. This one is my favorite video games because it makes you want to jump up and move.  It gets you up from your sofa and dancing to your fave artist hot now. This video game features Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass, Mark Ronson Ft. Bruno Mars - UpTown Funk to name a few. You can also play it 2 ways with a Wii Remote or SmartPhone. You can download for free the Just Dance Controller App and use it to track and score your dance moves.  This game is rated E for everyone 10+. 


X-Flame is a new Building Set from K'nex. You connect the 362 pieces to build X-Flame a dragon.  You can also build 2 other sets for a total of 3 builds. Once you have your dragon built, turn on the motor and the beast comes alive. My favorite is that all K'nex rods and connectors are made in the USA.  This product does require 2 "AA" batteries which are not included. Retails for $39.99. 


My son has been asking for a pet for some time now.  He wants a dog one day and now he has moved onto a cat.  What to do when you live in an apartment and it does not allow pets?  You get creative and get him a Zoomer Kitty.  

Zoomer Kitty purrs just like a real cat.  The kitty's eyes change color from red, green to purple.  You charge the Kitty with a USB cord that attaches to its belly. It has an on and off switch located right next to the charging slot.  

Zoomer Kitty comes with a Pink stick with a string that is attached to a ball.  You wave it in front of the Zoomer Kitty and it follows you. My kids have not stopped playing with it since it was opened. 

Zoomer Kitty is made by Spin Master. Follow Spin Master on Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest to stay up to date with new products and promotions. 

Get all of these last minute gifts at your local retail store. If you are latina like me, you have till the epiphany of the Three Kings Day. Happy Holidays.


  1. You have some really great choices here! Movies always make a great last minute choice - especially as stocking stuffers! My kids would LOVE to play with Zoomer Kitty - what a unique gift - this would be a hit on Christmas Day!

  2. I think everything you have pictured my kids would want! I know Minecraft has been at the top of all my kids list of things to get. I have not seen the Zoomer Kitty before looks like a fun toy!

  3. We just got a WiiU so those games would be awesome for us. My little one likes the Ninja Turtles but I kind of want to try that Disney Short Films collection. Gotta love Anna and Elsa! Looks like a fun collection of movies and video games.
