A few weeks ago, my kids and I were invited to a Toronto home to experience an amazing and unique holiday preview show: The Hasbro House. Although school has just finished and summer has just begun, its NEVER too early to be thinking about the MUST HAVE toy for Christmas, and this is what the event was all about. Each room of this Toronto home was decked out in a collection of the new and must have toys for the 2017 holiday season. The backyard was set up for the ultimate Nerf battle, the basement was a top secret layer for Marvel Characters, the bedrooms were littered with princesses, ponies and trolls and the main floor was set up for family game night! Check out our top 10 favourite toys!!
Here is my family’s top 10 must haves Hasbro toys for the 2017 holiday season:
DS11’s top 3:

With Play-Doh Kitchen Creations, the best ingredient of all is imagination! Kids can now create their favourite foods out of their own Play-Doh kitchen!

10 My Little Pony – SEA PONY!
When I was younger, my FAVOURITE pony was the sea pony! I loved the underwater magic they added to the show! When the My Little Pony franchise made its grand return to the toy world, I was sad to see the Sea Pony never returned to the spotlight…UNTIL NOW! With the release of their new movie, I am happy to announce that the Toy Gods have listened and the Sea Ponies are back! Let the fun of My Little Ponies return to the bathtubs like they did the 80’s!
