We don’t think the dinosaur obsession is going anywhere, anytime soon. I still have mine! I was telling Des that I remember taking an after school dinosaurs class and I got to take home a big box of dinosaur toys after the class. That was a highlight of my life and his eyes lit up just thinking about it. It’s sort of awesome that it all repeats, and now I have a kid obsessed with all things dinosaur. It reminds me how obsessed I still very much am. Someone give me a giant box of dinosaur toys!
Not only will I be buying them, I’ll be playing with them too – if the kids will let me. You see, pretty soon we have a long holiday break from school. And it’s during the cold time of year. Oh what am I even saying? New England school vacations are ALWAYS cold – whether during the holidays, or in February or April. That’s why we plan our vacation time accordingly – with indoors activities. For my kids, overall imaginative play is the game, and Jurassic World Play Dates is the game!
So not only should you have holiday gifting in mind, but think about the time of year it is! You’re about to have between 10-14 (or even more if you’re in college or private school) days off with your kids. Make them count! Get them THE gifts of the holiday season, and know that it will give you HOURS of imagination and creativity during those snow days and vacation days. Your kids will want them all. I know this because my kids do. And Walmart has EXCLUSIVE Jurassic World toys that make PERFECT gifts. They’re awesome for surprises, parties, holiday gifts, and every day imaginative play! For hours!
Here are three of our Jurassic World favorites:
1 – Imaginext Dinosaur Hauler Gift Set. This is such a winner in our house! Des and Scarlet instantly learned how to set up the net to “catch” those dinosaurs! And the hauler comes with and holds a bunch of fun dinosaurs ready for play.
2 – We also have LEGO Pteranodon Chase and LEGO Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase. It’s amazing how many details are involved, and how fun it is when the raptor can come right through the swinging door and into the lab!
It also must be said that they make the PERFECT bundle gift options for Christmas giving! These exclusive “Battle Damage” products from Walmart are perfect for our household. And Walmart has 2-day shipping which is perfect for you last-minute shoppers! You can also purchase them in-store and have fun perusing the Jurassic World items. I know that’s a lot of fun for us.
So, get ready to RUN to Walmart! We have a few fun suggestions for how these exclusive Jurassic World toys. For us, it was #1 on Des’ Christmas list, and don’t worry, he’ll still get a few surprises come Christmas morning, of course:
1 – Buy the toys as bundle gift options. That way you’ll be giving your kids a few options for all of the fun you’ll have together during the holiday break, and beyond. I spent a lot of care choosing items that would be fun together.
2 – Have a fun unboxing for your kids this holiday season. You could even wait until the excitement of the holidays is over. Buy a few toys and wrap them up together and have fun watching your kids pull out the Jurassic World fun!
3 – Host a dinosaur-themed play date or party. We did this over the weekend! We invited a bunch of like-minded friends over to build and play. Bonus – it makes for a QUIET play date or party. And the kids get super immersed in play.
4 – The Jurassic World EXCLUSIVE Walmart toys are good for boys and girls. Having one of each kid, I always like to buy toys that will appeal to both. Scarlet is fond of building, she’s fond of science, and she loves that the dinosaurs are all girls, and are strong characters with their own names and personalities. It’s pretty awesome is what it is!
5 – These toys invite hours upon hours of happiness into your home. You absolutely can’t beat that.
