Our Favorite Toys for Gift Giving!

December 6, 2010 at 6:14 pm Leave a comment

Happy holidays! I can’t believe we’re in the middle of Hanukkah and Christmas is just weeks away. The pressure is on to get everything done in just a short amount of time and since we’re walking the centers every day, the Outlets of Colorado are here to help. We have found some great toy/games that we can recommend (because we played with them) for this holiday season. Here are a few we tested and loved:

Twilight Scene It? DVD game: Completely fun especially since all of our testers have seen the movies, read the books and had determined whether they were on team Jacob or team Edward (it was an even draw between Jacob and Edwards….so it became a fairly competitive afternoon). The Scene it?Twilight Deluxe Edition features hundreds of heart-stopping clips, trivia questions, and on-screen puzzles from the Twilight movie phenomenon! The game will challenge your observation, memory, and puzzle-solving skills while reliving your favorite Twilight movie moments. We loved playing this game!

Disney/Pixar Toy Story 3 Talking 13″ U-Command Buzz Lightyear by Thinkway Toys. What we liked with this toy is that Buzz talks in his original character voice. He has over 70 phrases and he shows off with music and dance steps from the movie. You can move Buzz with his wireless, infra-red controller and use the dual joysticks to send Buzz forward, backward or into a 360-degree spin. There are over 1,000 possible action combinations you can do so it’s super fun and always new.

If you have a Wii console we had a ton of fun playing Sean White’s Snowboard and Deal or No Deal. Sean’s White’s Snowboard was fun, totally cool graphics, and a tough game especially if was determined by other testers that you have no sense of balance (oh, and I’m not bitter). We thought the Deal or No Deal Wii was just plain fun.  All the testers joined in the strategy to outsmart the banker and find the briefcase with the million dollars. And if you didn’t win the big bucks (one game I ended up with $10) it was okay….hello, it’s just a game!

We’ve got plenty more ideas on toys and games to give for kids of all ages. If you need other ideas about what to get this Christmas, post who you’re shopping for with some info on the Facebook pages of Outlets at Castle Rock, Outlets at Loveland, or Outlets at Silverthorne and we’ll help you find the right gift at a great price!
