MomSelect Holiday Showcase

I love working with MomSelect, and this past time was no different. I was selected for the MomSelect Holiday Showcase and received an assortment of products to showcase as possible holiday gifts. I gathered a few of my friends together recently to show all the goodies that I received and we discussed what we liked and what we weren't extremely fond of. I wore a Zhu Zhu Pets tshirt that I was given. Coupons were passed out for future purchases and snacks were eaten. We had a good time going over all the items and considering future buys.

From Patch Products was the 3D Sneaky Puzzles Singin' Sea Creatures. It was a favorite among many of the moms. The 46-piece floor puzzle has a colorful underwater scene which pops out at you when the 3D glasses are worn. Additionally, there are letters of the alphabet and numbers throughout the scene. One attendee mentioned that it was a whole new way to look at puzzles and make them fun for kids. We all received coupons from Patch Products for 25% off our entire order. If you're interested in making a purchasing from this company, use code 3DSNEAKY25 at checkout to receive the discount. Offer good through January 31, 2011.

Another bit hit were the Small Frys from Build-A-Bear Workshop. The seven inch animals are nestled inside a fries box. On the back of the box is ingredients like love and happiness. Cute, adorable, and soft were words spoken when guests were asked what they thought of these.

Playmobil sent a Child's First Day at School Kit that included two characters. The pieces were kind of small, so little ones should be supervised when playing with them. The small boxed sets were determined to make nice stocking stuffers, but they'd be funner to play with when they are with a playset or other figures.

The Smart Mom School Note Pads from Smart Mom Solutions was decided to be a solution to notes sent to school. Instead of scribbling on scratch pieces of paper, these notes can be sent to the teacher or school with a checkmark next to the explanation. It saves time and gives all the needed info to a child's absence or other pertinent info.

The Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory was well-liked by those who aren't afraid of kids making messes. Littler kids might need help with this, but it would be a super outlet for older children's imaginations. Included with the Mega Fun Factory are over fifteen molds and four tubs of Play-Doh. The Play-Doh is loaded onto a conveyor belt and different designs come out. Six tubs of Play-Doh can be stored in the set for future use. Two "C" batteries are required, but not included which was a negative point to some.

For the littler ones, kids can learn and create with the Play-Doh Shape & Spin Elmo playset. There are two modes. In one, Elmo helps your child identify shapes and then counts them as your child makes them. In the other, Elmo prompts your child to make various shapes. Three tubs of Play-Doh are included, as well as batteries. Elmer's familiar voice and the fact that this is a learning and fun toy together were a plus to all guests.

In addition to other snacks, guests were served Christmas Tree Cakes by Little Debbie on a cute snowman tray that was also furnished. I could've eaten the whole box myself, they were so delicious. However, in the spirit of Christmas, I shared and they were heartily gobbled up. I've since purchased a couple boxes for my home to eat as an evening snack.

The whole Holiday Showcase party was a success. Guests were able to get ideas for Christmas and find out about products they didn't otherwise know about. It was fun, fun, fun!

I received products for review from MomSelect. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products. Your opinions and results may differ.
