The Purr-fect Stocking Stuffer – Cats Vs Pickles #HolidayGiftGuide

Looking for some adorable stocking stuffers, or gifts for the kids on your shopping list? They will LOVE these, and so will you. I honestly wanted to keep a couple of these, they are so cute and fun.

Every cat is unique in their own way – there are foodie cats, sweet cats, scary cats, cats with class and cats without but every cat is special in their own way. That is what’s at the heart of a latest cat-astic craze for kids, Cats vs Pickles.

Cats vs Pickles is based off the social media phenomenon of cats reacting to pickles but it our world the pickles just want to be friends, but cats are scared of pickles! This new line currently has over 44 unique cat characters and there are tons of silly, soft cats of every variety, with stand outs like Sno-Cone, Mer-Kitty, Puzzle Cat, and The Great Catsby (I’ve attached the collectors’ sheets so you can see all the different characters)

Bedtime Made Easier Thanks To Snuggle Monsters, Sleepylights, & Emoji-Notes #GiftGuide

Do your kids give you trouble when it comes to bedtime? So many parents dread bedtime, as it is fights, tears, and kids not wanting anything to do with going to sleep. Sometimes, they are afraid of the dark, of monsters under the bed, or other childhood fears related to bedtime, and it can be a trying time for both parents and children.

To make bedtime a bit more palatable, we have a few suggestions you might want to try. These are great gifts for the holiday, check them out and see what you think will work best for your family .

Continuum Games introduces four Emoji-Notes Color & Shine craft kits at $19.99 each. These kits allow you to color your nightlight as you’d like and write your own messages.  When your child is ready for a change, they can wipe it clean and color it again.  This is a light up message board, night light and craft kit all in one.  The kits join distributor Continuum Games’ line of Lumenico SleepyLights ($29.99) that offer soft lighting for a goodnight and sleep-tight bedroom atmosphere.

If the kids are looking for something so snuggle up with, or perhaps need a monster to help them fight off the baddies under the bed, check out Snuggle Monster Hide & Seek Bedtime available at $29.99 each. They come in Purple, Pink or Blue Monster shades, and have a storybook as well as fun night time activity designed to help parents get their kids to bed at night.  Introduce your child to their very own snuggle monster and read them the story about how snuggle monsters are super silly creatures that hide in the closet or under your bed during the day because their eyes are made for nighttime and sunlight is like dark to them. At night, it is your child’s job to find them and let them know it is okay to come out and play.  Each night, mom and dad hide the monster somewhere in their child’s room. Yes, very “Elf on the Shelf” like, and you know how the kids love those. When it is time to go to bed, parents let their child know it is time to find their snuggle monster.  That’s where the child can search for and find their nighttime pal Snuggle Monster before going to bed.  Parents have a transition tool (one fun activity before bedtime) they can use to help get their child to bed with no fuss.

The boxed set features a nighttime storybook, lovable plush monster as a sleep companion and a hide-and-seek game. Watch the nighttime ritual turn the nighttime struggles into snuggles. Fun and easy, and worth it to get the kiddos to bed without tears.

Sega Genesis Mini #HolidayGiftGuide #VideoGames

The holidays are always a time of nostalgia which is why you’re in luck! SEGA is bringing us back to the 90s with their brand new Genesis Mini. Featuring 42 games, this console is bursting with tons of classic titles. Gamers will be able to enjoy their favorite past times including, Sonic The Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin and Mega Man®: The Wily Wars! The newly improved Genesis Mini is 55% the size of the original model, making it easy to play anywhere, anytime! With the holidays so close we can almost taste it – the SEGA Genesis Mini will surely be on the top of every gamer’s holiday wish list.

The iconic SEGA Genesis console that defined a generation of gaming returns in a slick, miniaturized unit. The SEGA Genesis Mini console is loaded with 40 legendary games and is plug and play ready right out of the box. Each unit contains SEGA Genesis Mini Console & 2 wired controllers, 40 games, power cable, USB adapter- HDMI cable.
Some of the games included are: Ecco the Dolphin, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Space Harrier 2, Shining Force, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, Toe Jam & Earl, Comix Zone, Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Gunstar Heroes, Earthworm Jim, Castle of Illusion, Shinobi III, Contra: Hard Corps, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, World of Illusion, Thunder Force III, Super Fantasy Zone, Streets of Rage 2, Landstalkers, Beyond Oasis, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Alex Kidd, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star IV, Street Fighter 2, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Sonic Spinball, Vectorman, Wonderboy in Monster World

The Sega Genesis Mini, known as the Mega Drive Mini in regions outside of North America, is a dedicated console modeled on Sega’s Genesis. The Mini emulates the original console’s 16-bit hardware, and includes 42 games ported by M2.

The Mini is half the size of the original Sega Genesis video game console. There are separate releases for North America, Europe, Asia and Japan, as the Mini reproduces the original console’s decal and color variations in those regions. The North American and European Minis include three-button controllers, while the Japanese controllers have six buttons. Officially licensed six-button controllers made specifically for the Mini are also sold separately in North America and Europe. Official non-functioning accessories of a miniature Sega CD, a miniature Sega 32X, a miniature Sonic & Knuckles lock-on Genesis cartridge, and a miniature Sonic the Hedgehog standard Mega Drive cartridge are also sold separately in Japan.

The Mini includes 42 games, though the exact selection varies by region. Depending on the region, certain games have multiple regional variations that can be played by changing the system’s language. For example, Contra: Hard Corps becomes Probotector when played with a PAL-region language while the Japanese language setting turns Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine into Puyo Puyo. The games have a saved state feature to pause and resume progress and can be played in either the original ratio or stretched widescreen, with HUD elements modified to fit onto the screen. Two bonus games, Darius and Tetris, were never released for the original system and were newly ported from their arcade releases.

Available for $60 at locations like Target.
