#FisherPriceMoms Toy Year in Review & the Joy of Giving During the Holidays


Can you believe the Holidays are just around the corner?  I can and I can't.  It's hard to believe that a year has flown by.  The hot chocolate with candy cane swirls, the Christmas baking and comfort food making all signify the approach of the Holidays, but part of me does not know where the year whizzed by!

Thinking of my year as a Fisher-Price Mom, I have learned so much about the products and the company I have loved since I was a child.  I'm just glad that my daughter can enjoy the fun and learning I had with Fisher-Price as well! 
 
In January of last year, it was official - I was included as one of the Fisher-Price Moms! Thus began a fun year of learning more about Fisher-Price and their products and sharing exciting news and information with friends, family and readers.

We got to see first hand how Fisher-Price has something just right for different age groups and levels of development. It was pretty interesting to see how Fisher-Price has been present for almost all of Little One's milestones!

 
 
I also discovered that Fsher-Price is not just about toys! They have a huge variety of products for babies like the Fisher-Price Fast Finder Diaper Bag and the Fisher-Price Stretch 'ems!

They WOWED us with their newest items.  Little One spends hours playing with her toys! Her absolute favourite Fisher-Price toy? It's a toss up between her Little People play sets and the Servin' Surprises Kitchen & Table she received!



We shared with our readers all about Fisher-Price Celebrate & Save. Fisher-Price has some great savings on items that are great for your children and they're perfect for when you need to give a gift to someone else's child or children! Savings are a good thing!
I think the most valuable thing I took away from this experience so far has been learning more about Fisher-Prices's The Joy of Learning.  I love how Fisher-Price now has The Joy of Learning Playtime Guide! I discussed how Fisher-Price was instrumental in each of Little One's developmental milestones.
 
This year, I also thought a lot about my Holiday shopping habits. Once again, I am happy about Fisher-Price's Celebrate & Save! With our ever growing family and our circle of friends expanding with the births of a few new additions, I take advantage of the Celebrate & Save savings! Make sure to check out websaver.ca for your Fisher-Price savings coupons!

{T'is the Season!}
This year, in the Spirit of Giving, Fisher-Price is giving us the opportunity to share with others.  I've been asked to choose a charity to donate to. We have selected Haven House/Manitoulin Family Resources.

Little One chose this item to donate to Haven House. We hope that children there will be able to enjoy this Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Fun with Friends Musical Table.


That's not all! We are also spreading the joy by giving a friend who is expecting her first baby a Fisher-Price Snugabunny Cradle & Swing!
 

It's important for us to teach Little One that not everything is for her and that giving and sharing  actually makes us feel better than receiving all the time. Though we may not be extremely wealthy, we are definitely in a position to help others whenever we can. 

I'm thrilled that at four years old, Little One enjoys being able to give. We thank Fisher-Price and Mom Central Canada for allowing us to do this. I love that Fisher-Price is all about giving this month!

Fisher Price has fabulous products. I'm a huge fan of my son's Rockin Roll Play Exersaucer thing.

I LOVE Fisher-Price. It's baby's first Christmas and MOST of the presents under the tree with her name on it also have Fisher-Price's! :)

Fisher Price is so awesome! My kids have grown with so many of their toys and I love how much they help children learn! Actually, the Fisher Price Baby to Toddler 3 in 1 rocker chair we got SO much use out of when our kids were babies :)

Oh, this is awesome, Christine! I am so excited that you have the opportunity to pay it forward as a Fischer Price Mom. Thanks for such a good news post.

We're huge Fisher-Price fans here too. We have so many of the Little People sets and plenty more to go under the tree this year. I've been checking out that kitchen table set that you pictured above. Help - I can't stop shopping...it's all too cute! :)

Congrats on being a Fisher-Price Mom. That's an amazing opportunity!

Sarah Lynn:
Ohhh yay!!! Baby's FIRST Christmas is SO special! Every Christmas is special, but there's just something about the first one that is so incredibly momentous of an experience.

Brandi:
That sounds like another FP item I'll have to check out for my friend's baby!

Cheryl said...

We can't get enough FP around here!
