Xia Xia Pets- Another great Christmas idea!- Giveaway CLOSED

Stumble Twitter Digg This
You know how it is annoying that they put up Christmas stuff before Halloween?  I don't know. Maybe you don't think it's annoying, but I do.  But the thing is, I'm kind of a hypocrite.  I start working on Christmas sometime in August. I start trolling the toy aisles looking for great deals or new toys that my kids would love to get for Christmas.  I'm also not above picking stuff up at yard sales.


We got a chance to try out some fun new toys before Christmas this year. Xia Xia Pets are new this year to Toys R Us and Walmart.  If your kids want a pet for Christmas, these cute little crabs might just be a great alternative.  There are four crabs, Bimini, Turks, Trinidad and Tobago.  My girls (obviously) preferred pink Turks, as were their little friends that came over to play with them!  My boys were partial to the blue Tobago.  And they all loved that these little crabs could move by themselves all over the place.

Each crab comes with a removable shell and inside of each shell is a little friend.  There are more shells than there are crabs, and my girls have loved changing the shells all over the place.
We had some friends come over to play with us and these cute little toys and I learned a couple of things.  Although all four of my kids, ages 3 to 8 loved playing with them, the 4-5 year old friends that came to see us had more fun than the older kids did.  So, I'm thinking that these are better suited to that age.
Plus, they are full of little pieces which pose a choking hazard. Not to mention the fact that they aren't quite up to the stress of a 3 year old playing with it.  So, if you are looking for a simple gift for a 4 to 5 year old, you just found it!  



And you might just win yourself one here!  One of my readers will recieve a Xia Xia Pet and an extra shell!
