I am an early holiday shopper. As in, before December, I have about 80% of my shopping done, and often hide gifts just to forget that I even purchased them. This year is no different- I am already shopping and squirreling away the best picks for my family and friends. Here are the hot holiday toys for under $60, which usually my budget for the kids in my life!
Winner of three top parenting awards, BriteBrush is making smiles merry and bright this holiday. My kids absolutely love this product- it honestly encourages them to keep their pearly whites clean without my nagging. Perfectly stocking-sized and priced under $20, BriteBrush GameBrush is packed with seven fun games including space attack, soccer pinball, dance star, punch master, race car rally, arcade, and rockstar jam!
BriteBrush gives kids a fun way to brush their teeth right out of the box, with no apps required, by using songs, games, and live coaching to encourage proper brushing techniques and finally making it fun to brush right. There is no iPad required, no phone apps to download, no extra devices necessary in the bathroom. THIS is huge to me since my kids are on iPads all day long with remote learning, and I don’t want to add screen time when they are just brushing their teeth.
BriteBrush Baby Shark transports younger children to the ocean with cool bubble popping adventures, treasure hunts, and their favorite Baby Shark song! It is catchy, and although parents might find it running through their head all day, kids love it.
Now more than ever, parents are encouraging diversity through play and early childhood learning.
