Hot Holiday Toys To Watch For: Magic Mixies

I had the absolute pleasure of attending The Toy Insiders Virtual Day of Play for Holiday Toys. The one thing that was mentioned in the opening is that the toy industry is facing many of the issues that a lot of other industries are this year. That includes: delayed ship times, labor shortages, difficulty getting certain materials, etc. So the message this year is to buy early and buy “the” toy item your child wants when you see it. (If you are able to of course)

One of the items expected to be a hot holiday toy this year is Magic Mixies from Moose Toys.

During the Day of Play virtual event I showed the how-to video to my daughter and she was mesmerized. I posted a little info about it on my private facebook page and several of my friends and neighbors were telling me this is already on their kids’ wish lists.

What Is It?

It’s an interactive toy. You’ll receive a cauldron, wand, and ingredients to create a Mixie creature (included).

The short version: A magic cauldron that lights up, bubbles, and more. Your child adds all the ingredients and uses their magic wand to stir and tap the pot. Once all ingredients are added and all steps are complete, watch as the cauldron mists an reveals their Mixie creature.

The Mixie itself also interacts with your child and their wand. They can even do assist with the cauldron and spell book. Your child’s Mixie has 50+ sounds and reactions!

My favorite part? This isn’t a one and done thing. You can recreate the magic of revealing the Mixie over and over again.

I love that it has so much entertainment value and quite simply is adorable.

When and Where Can I Get It?

Depending on the site Magic Mixies will be released October 3 with Amazon listing October 1 for ship dates on pre-orders. Here’s some places and links you can find Magic Mixies.

Adagio Tea Advent Calendar and 12 Days of Christmas Teas

I love advent calendars. They’re so fun to countdown the days until Christmas. You can find an advent calendar for just about any interest. I you or someone you know is a tea lover, the Adagio Tea Advent Calendar 2020 is perfect for you! OR gift someone a 12 days of Christmas tea gift set.

First let me say that I LOVE Adagio tea. They have TONS of teas to choose from loose leaf teas, to tea bags, to iced tea you can find what you like. I used their teas when I tried my hand at making boba. This particular one was a strawberry boba that used real strawberry bits and the Adagio Libra blend which has bits of strawberry and chocolate notes in it. But they have several strawberry teas on their site. So you can make it to your taste.

Back to the Adagio Tea Advent Calendar though. 24 days of a tea taste adventure. I’m always leary about revealing too much when it comes to things like advent calendars. I figure people want to know what they might expect in it but want the excitement of wondering what flavor will be next.

So what I did was I just popped open day 1 so you can see about what size the packets are. These are loose leaf teas. I personally popped open two other days too just to get a feel of what to expect. I can tell you, based on my snooping, that there are different flavors of loose leaf tea for each day. Some holiday flavors, some “enjoy anytime” flavors.

Day 1 revealed

My mouth is watering thinking of the couple flavors I unveiled. But, I’m gonna make myself wait to try them until the proper day. I mean, i gotta have something to look forward to on those days that I sneaked a peak on right?

At a price point of only $29, you don’t have to feel guilty about getting yourself a little something for the holidays. Hey it’s practical too!

The Adagio Tea Advent Calendar would make a great gift but so does the Adagio 12 Days of Christmas gift tea set.

Adagio 12 Days of Christmas tea set

So this little set include 12 tins of different holiday flavored teas such as Candy Cane. But that’s not all. Each tin is decorated festively and can double as an ornament!

Adagio 12 Days of Christmas teas

So many amazing teas in this little gift set. Perfect for the tea lover. Or keep this around when you need a festive cup of cheer while decorating or baking cookies.

At a price of only $19, this is a great “under $20 gift” and they get some fun ornaments out of of it too.

I highly encourage you to check out the other items on Adagio’s site too. I have their travel loose leaf tea glass and I use it all the time. They also have tea pots, infuser, a tea of the month club, rock sugar crystals for tea, and more. You’re sure to find the perfect gift for the tea lover. Or treat yourself. Their prices are amazing but the tea is so good.

Check out my twitter and facebook blog feeds too. I’ll be sharing Adagio coupons for new Adagio shoppers!

I received the above mentioned samples to complete this post. any opinions expressed are my own.

Amazon Holiday Toy Catalog

We received the Amazon Holiday Toy Catalog in the mail about 2 weeks ago. I saw a few of my facebook friends saying they wanted it but never received it.

My kids went through and write down some things they wanted for on their Christmas wish list. I remember doing the same thing with the Sears catalog or the Toys R Us holiday catalog. (I know I’m old).

If you didn’t received the Amazon Holiday Toy Catalog I have a digital copy for you here:

My kids were able to find a lot of things they like. My nieces did the same thing. Do you see anything on your child/grandchild/niece/nephews wish list?

2020 Personalizable Ornament + 50% off & Free Shipping Deal

2020 has really been something hasn’t it? It kinds of makes me wonder what’s in store for the last quarter of this year. I mean, we still do have Halloween, the election, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year to get through.

We try to get a new family ornament each year. I try to pick something different each time. This 2020 ornament is going to be the one for us this year. Check out the personalized 2020 ornament.

You can personalize one of these 2020 ornaments yourself. After I ordered mine what I found is that you order the ornament with the amount of heads that you want. It gives you instructions on how to personalize it yourself once you receive it with a sharpie. So essentially your purchasing a blank ornament.

  • You get to choose the number of family members on the easily personalizable ornament. This will definitely be one that gets pointed out years from now. Maybe I’ll even get questions from future grandchildren. 2020 , masks, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, what ornament could be more 2020?
  • Ornament w/ 1 Head – $12.95
  • Ornament w/ 2 Head – $12.95
  • Ornament w/ 3 Head – $13.95
  • Ornament w/ 4 Head – $14.95
  • Ornament w/ 5 Head – $15.95
  • Ornament w/ 6 Head – $16.95
  • Ornament w/ 7 Head – $17.95

You can start creating your ornament now. Plus if you purchase 3 or more ornaments you get 50% off and FREE shipping! Would make a fun holiday gift or gift basket item! It also says “delivered within 5-7 business days” on their website.

I’m thinking about creating some for family members too. I mean at 50% off and free shipping if you buy 3 or more…why not right?

**UPDATE**

Guys I got my ornaments in already! I ordered them the day I posted this (October 10) and I go them today (October 14).

We’re a family of 6 so I ordered the one with 6 elf heads on it. They come blank. There are instructions on the website with how to personalize them. Basically it’s writing what you want with a pencil then tracing with a fine point permanent marker.

They’re actually like a silicone type material. So no worrying about breakage if you ship them to someone or having them break in storage. I was followed the directions on the site and got mine personalized pretty easily.

ORDER YOUR 2020 ORNAMENT HERE

These came really fast and they’re super cute. I’m thinking of ordering a couple more to add to gifts for the holidays.
