* We were not paid for this post. We attended a playdate on behalf of Hasbro, and were given a super awesome goodie bag as a Thank you!
Last week, we ventured out into the BIG CITY- as in New York City. We rode the ferry, rode the subway, and walked 20 blocks to get to the Bryant Hotel!! Rode the elevator up to the 18th floor and arrived at the Hasbro Playdate~ VERY exciting for the kids!! They saw balloons, face painting, toys, and yeah umm more TOYS!!
It wouldn’t be a Hasbro party without some Playdough! Of course she sat down at the table with the new Design a Dress Boutique Playdough set!
Images of multi colored Playdough containers danced through their heads! There are sooooo many Playdough colors to choose from!
We had the opportunity to meet Playdough guy himself! This little one was very eager to snap a shot with the oversized Playdough container!
While this one……well she wasn’t getting that close 🙂 When he dropped to the floor and tucked his feet in, I think she had a panic attack.
There was a fantastic toddler section set up, and Rye quickly found her toy of choice! She loved the Hasbro Playskool Poppin’ Park Elefun Push toy! She thought it was hilarious when he spit out the balls – and with a simple push of the Elefun he will clean up the balls too! Geared for ages 18mths + this hot Playskool toy will be available this Fall. Just in time for the holiday season!
Be sure to check out other toys from the Poppin’ Park collection!
Hasbro had a great display of oldies like Operation (Did you know they even have a Star Wars Operation?), Hungry Hungry Hippos, and Perfection!
And of course, they had NEW great games like Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Video Game system(not out yet-stay tuned! )- A HIT among all the little boys! This game system simply plug ins to your TV, and players can pop their characters into the game on the portal!!
The STAR of the show was clearly Elmo~ The new Big Hugs Elmo is fantastic! My kids are always hugging and loving on their stuffed animals, and finally there is a stuffed lovie to hug back! When Elmo hits your arms, he warmly wraps his long arms around the child’s neck! These 2 were inseparable! This will be a TOP Christmas toy this year! Elmo is 22 inches tall, and not only does he hug back but he sings lullabies!
The kids ran around like crazy people~ touching every toy in the room! They danced with Chasin Cheeky~ a hot new game coming this fall~ Cheeky the silly purple monkey rolls around the room while kids try to throw rings on his tail! Grab Cheeky’s tail to see him do his victory dance! It’s Cheeky– hint hint. The kids giggled until their bellies hurt!
Of course, Baby Alive didn’t go without sweet baby kisses from my 20 mth old. She never put the poor thing down.
Finished off the day with face painting and balloon characters! The day couldn’t have been nicer 🙂
Thanks Hasbro for inviting us to your #HasbroPlaydate! We had such a great time with your new toys! Special Thank you for the Bryant Park Carousel tickets- as you can see from their sweet faces they loved it!
