KRE-O building set, perfect for this holiday season toy giving! #HasbroKREOsets

The holidays are approaching quickly (YIKES, wasn't it just back to school days) and it’s time to go present shopping! I have partnered up with  SocialMoms and Hasbro would like to share with you a great new gift idea for the entire family: KRE-O building sets! KRE-O is a new, value-filled toy line found in the construction aisle. It’s a standout gift for both Transformers and building fans ages 6 years and up.

Want to hear this Momma's  top 3 reasons why a  KRE-O sets are a great gift for kids aged 6 and older and for members of the whole family.?
  1. Transformers.... need I say anything more?  Transformers have been around since I was a child and I love how they are still relevant and evolving to let children explore and play! I personally know a number of little guys asking for Transformer KRE-O toys!   Well heck even my hubby loves Transformers! Age is not an issue when it come to Transformers!
  2. They allow for creativity and exploration. Children will have fun assembling and disassembling their Transformerand it will keep them occupied and allow for hours of enjoyment!
  3. Price! I am all about saving money and not spending a lot. There are twelve KRE-O Transformers sets available, from Basic sets for beginner builders to deluxe sets for the pros. The sets range in price from $7.99-$59.99 and each set allows kids to construct one of two models: a Transformers character in robot or vehicle mode offering two different builds in one! You won't break the bank purchasing these sets.
Did you know that KRE-O bricks are compatible with other leading brick based sets on the market so families don’t have to invest in a new brick system or worry about mixing up bricks and blocks! Unwrap KRE-O gifts and welcome them easily into your toy chest.

Let the fun begin! Check out the KRE-O Web site today and let us know what you think.

I am also sharing my top tips for keeping everyone’s spirits bright during holiday gatherings!
  • Don't over stay your welcome!  Holidays are the times we get to see people we normally don't get to see that often, but remember that the person hosting the gathering probably has been preparing for a while and been at preparations all day.
  • Offer to help out with family functions!  Even if it is just bringing a pie, every little bit helps!
  • If you have children make sure they have a snack or a mini meal before heading off to a holiday gathering.   Not all parties are set to your child's schedule and your little angel might get hungry and cranky (trust me, I know!)
  • Along the same lines, bring PJs. If you plan on staying out late change  your child, so when you get home you will not have to wake them up!
  • Don't overspend!   Remember the holiday are not all about the presents!  If you teach your child young, they will have a better understanding and appreciate things more!
  • Remember those less fortunate.  It feels good to give back and even better as a family!  Brighten someones day by dropping off a gift, working a soup kitchen, etc.    One year we "secretly" adopted a family from church and on Christmas Eve dropped a bag of gifts and food at their door.  Till this day, they still do not know it was our family!   Adopt a child from an Angel tree---the one child we got asked for a Transformers toy!   Looks like I know what I will be getting him!
  • Be thankful, thoughtful, safe and have fun!
