Toy Buzz: WIN 1 of 5 toy hampers worth R800 ea

So it’s one month ’til Christmas Eve! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? To be honest I haven’t even thought about it yet… eeeek!

Well, if you’re like me, never fear!!

Parents, Grandparents, Aunties and Uncles…. you’ll be pleased to know I have the most amazing competition for you today!

Well, technically not for YOU, rather for the cute kids in your life!

I’m giving away 5 awesome toy hampers from HASBRO valued at R800 each. That’s a total giveaway value of R4000. WOW what a win!

The hampers have something for everyone under 10…. and include a Play–Doh set, a My Little Pony gift, and a Nerf gun!

For the toddlers, pre-schoolers (and even older), Play-Doh is a great educational toy… beneficial in so many ways from developing fine motor skills by using their fingers and hands, to creating amazingly artistic designs and creations. Play Doh the perfect solution to keep kids occupied during bored patches or in small spaces… especially great when visiting family and friends over the festive season or stuck in a holiday house with not much to entertain small people!

This Festive season, Play Doh launches their much anticipated playsets – Marvel Smashdown Hulk gives boys the opportunity to build enemies or shapes and then squish them with Hulk Smashdown before starting over. While girls can look forward to going on a Frozen sled adventure with Disney Frozen’s Ana, changing her dress colours or creating a snowy sparkly Olaf with a special mould or making beautiful Play-Doh rainbow hair for Rainbow Dash with the My Little Pony Rainbow Dash Salon playset.


Your little princess will be able to enter the magical world of My Little Pony, where an array of pony friends await, ready for adventures. Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity and Pinkie Pie are all excited to discover the magic of friendship together. My Little Pony was a huge hit for me as a kid and I love how My Little Pony get girls to play together and use their imaginations!

nerf gun

Top of my son’s wish list for his recent birthday was a Nerf gun, and after a recent visit to a Nerf gun exhibit during the school holidays he is now the lucky owner of not 1, but 2, thanks to his exceptional shooting skills which scored him a FREE one! He was BEYOND thrilled.

Anyway now we have two of these fun guns… and the fun is doubled as he can play against friends and cousins (even sisters!) instead of only shooting at targets… although I do try to instil the “no shooting at people rule” – it doesn’t always work out that way with boys!! Fortunately the “bullets” are soft foam and can’t do much harm (except maybe to the ego!)

Each Nerf gun works like a water blaster – but the advantage is that nothing gets soaked. What I like about them is that they get kids physical – up and off the couch, getting sweaty in the garden is where boys should be, right?
