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 2016 holiday season. In 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!
Here is my family’s top 10 must haves Hasbro toys for the 2016 holiday season:
- Monopoly Ultimate banking – This Cashless game is a new modern banking version of the Monopoly game. Win the same way by bankrupting your opponents, but this time you use a Ultimate Banking unit with touch technology. This allows you to buy properties, set rent and tap your way to fortune!
- Transformers Titans Return – Transformers are back with two new lines of Transformers: TITANS: The largest transformers in the universe (think city size!) and TITAN MASTERS: small bots who have the ability to become the heads of other Transformers, merging the abilities of 2 bots into 1! The fortress Maximus is the largest figure in the line and converts into 2 modes: ROBOT, CITY and BATTLE station.
- FurReal Friends: Bootsie – Ever wanted a cat but your brother is allergic? Bootsie to the rescue! She is full of personality, has 5+ distinct expressions and purrs when she is picked up and cuddle!
