Hasbro's Hottest Toys of 2015

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?  Don’t be jealous, but mine has been done for well over a month.  I get panic attacks in crowds (no lie), so I steer clear of the stores for the entire month of December.  I know I am in the minority, though, and personally know quite a few people that haven’t even started their shopping yet – even though the big day is only four days away.  FOUR days, guys!

If you’re stuck on ideas for what to get your kids this year, fret not because Hasbro has you covered and then some.  They seriously have the coolest toys out this year and your kids are going to flip their lids over some of these things!

**Thanks to Hasbro for sending my family these amazing toys to review at no charge.  As always all opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way.

Obviously, Star Wars is all the rage these days with the movie coming out last Friday (no spoilers in the comments please, I am not going to see it until Thursday).  What would Christmas morning be without a little Star Wars?  I am loving these awesome games for my oldest son because he’s 11 now and thinks he’s too cool for toys.  We’ve got a serious case of the tweens going on over here, so these games are absolutely perfect for him.

pie in the face

If your Facebook feed is anything like mine, you know that this game is flying off the shelves and has been really hard to find over the last few weeks, so if you’re kids are getting the Pie Face Game under the tree on Friday, they’re definitely getting one of the hottest toys this year!

Last but not least, for the kids with mind-blowing imaginations, Hasbro’s got it.

Playmation Marvel Avengers Starter Pack
“Playmation is the next step in the evolution of play, where digital gets physical and imagination gets real. Inter-connected products with embedded content let players step into the world of Marvel’s Avengers! Control the adventures with wearable gear that lets users feel the battle and puts them at the center of the action.

With the Playmation Marvel Avengers Starter Pack, players have the core products they need to carry out their first missions and fight alongside the Avengers in the battle to defend Earth from Ultron! The Starter Pack comes with 4 locations and 25 missions out of the box so that players can jump right into the action!


Who wouldn’t love getting into the action like that?  Amazing, right?

If that’s not enough, Hasbro has many great Play-Doh sets, Littlest Pet Shop sets and of course, Play All Day Elmo! You can find all of Hasbro’s toys on the Hasbro website, or at any major retailer near you!

So tell me, what toys would your kids love to see under the tree this Christmas?

  120. It’s all about Star Wars here! And I debated getting the Monopoly game, but everyone got light sabers instead. I might regret that. But we are looking into the PlayStation for our girls – as their brother and his friends have kinda taken over the Xbox. It would be something fun for them to do, and they never seem to sit still so they’d probably love the interactive play.

  121. We totally got the pie in the face game and about died laughing while we played! It was hysterical

  122. These all look like winners! I only have a toddlers, but I can’t wait until she’s a little older so she can play board games with me. And I know this is crazy, but I’ve never seen ANY of the Star Wars movies. My husband doesn’t think this is something I should be admitting to people, haha.

  123. I have been seeing that Pie Face game everywhere! LOVE how it’s bringing families together for good laughs
