  • furReal Munchin’ Rex is one of the top gifts of the year for any little boy. They also have girl versions of unicorns and more. What is so unique about these furReal toys are they give your child the feeling of a real pet. The baby dino responds with over 35 sounds and motions, to give you that real dinosaur feel. This is great for ages 4 and up, and would be perfect to wrap and place under the tree. This little Rex comes with his bottle, broccoli treat (great for teaching your child to eat their veggies!) cookie treat, and the pet.

      • Another great toy to snag is this Pretend Play Toys for Kids that is a DIY cutting birthday cake. This set has 75 pieces that will teach your little one all about putting pieces back together to form the cake and treats, sharing, imagination and more. I love how big this set is, so it is great for a handful of little kids to come together and enjoy this set together.

They have different colors and other really awesome items on their store, along with helmets. Magformers SkyTrack Set
        • Magformers Sky Track Set is one of our favorites. We have had such a blast playing with this set, and made so many different tracks. Our favorite part of this is the way you can create and shape any style track you think up. Plus, you are able to add other kits together to make even bigger and more extravagant sets. This is set for ages 3 and up, and my guy is 3 and has a blast playing with it. This could be great for even older kids. A STEM approved gift that allows your child to have fun but also learn and grow in a variety of ways with each piece they put together and create a track that fits their imagination! 
    • Wishlets bracelets are really unique and fun. I bought some of these for my nieces around a year ago and they went nuts for them. When you tie the bracelet on you make a wish. The bracelet has a small charm you wear, and after time the string will break. When the string breaks your wish you made when you first put it on will come true. I love the idea behind this bracelet. Girls and boys both will love these bracelets. Who doesn’t want to nourish a child’s dreams and hopes?LEGO Set If your child is a fan of Star Wars, check out this affordable LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Microfighter set!

I have tried their ground chicken which we love using for say taco wraps or sloppy joes, chicken thighs are great for baking or frying, and my favorite is their boneless chicken. We love boneless chicken in our home, and use it to bake with often. What is so nice is the boneless came in packs but each chicken piece was individually wrapped. So you use what you need, and the rest stays in the fridge or freezer. No wasting or have to re-package once you get home. Perdue strives to go over and beyond to raise the best chickens, and when they say no antibiotics ever, they mean it. For high-quality chicken, give them a try!
