hot holiday toys with a side of charity {Kmart Fab 15 list}

Christmas is less than 6 weeks away – say whaaat? I know, I’m panicking too.  My daughter is tough this year.  She only wants one thing – an Xbox ONE and more games.  I’ve been begging her to make a more extensive list to give me, Santa and grandma more options but she refuses.  SIGH! Luckily, I’ve got some ideas thanks to Kmart’s Fab 15 list of HOT toys, yeah it’s out!  What made the list?  Check out my super cool custom graphic = )

It’s funny to see some of the same favorite brands from when I was a kid.  At my daughter’s age I was stuffing my list full of Disney and Barbie items too… but also Cabbage Patch Dolls, Gak, Pogs, Polly Pockets and Lisa Frank school swag.  Oh, and a new Skip-it because I accidentally flung my old one down the sewer drain at school. HA!

My daughter is definitely going to get a couple items from the Fab 15 list — thanks for the suggestions.  LEGO is huge around our house and while she has been obsessed with the Friends collection, she also loves Marvel super heroes — that’s her dad’s doing.  I don’t mind because I can keep toys like LEGO for when her little brother is older and past the whole chocking hazard age.


I’m ready to get shopping for the kiddos, which is great timing for me because the sales have already begun.  Exclusively for the Kmart Shop Your Way members, with any online purchase of a Fab 15 toy now through Nov. 22, Kmart is extending its free trial of the to Shop Your Way MAX program, which includes free two-day shipping for six months!  Might as well go ahead and grab some of these hot toys now – some are Kmart exclusives and you won’t find them anywhere else.

    This reminded me that I need to pick up some DC Comics stuff for my sisters. Thank you for sharing!

    I always try to support campaigns like this. I have to remember to try to buy some of these.

    Right now my daughter loves anything Frozen and anything Disney. She would love the Frozen snow glow Elsa doll.

    My son is currently obsessed with getting the Zoomer Dino for Christmas. Luckily we snagged one early in the season just in case they sell out.

    My son loves Paw Patrol, Transformers and Marvel toys! I think it’s great that Kmart is doing this. We should really support companies that give back!
