Partying With Fisher-Price
I love a great party. Always. So much in fact, that sometimes when I think, “I’m kind of tired, I’ll just go for an hour and then come home,” I’m almost always still the last to leave.
I was recently invited to Lena’s home along with a great group of women to celebrate the holidays and to find out what the hottest toys are from Fisher-Price this year. I jumped at the chance because, as I said, I love a good party and I was excited to hear from one of the most trusted brands for baby toys and baby gear.
Lena has a gorgeous home and it was decorated beautifully for Christmas — one of my favourite times of the year. I absolutely love the sparkle from Christmas tree lights and winter greenery. Not only was Lena a warm and welcoming host, the spread was amazing.

|Great food! Great cocktails! Delicious wine! Great conversation! All key ingredients for a successful holiday party.|
|Don’t mind the shoeless feet, we are Canadian and have no issues taking our shoes off when entering someone’s home. I just wish I had better socks on, next time my socks will wow you.|
Fisher-Price has been in the business for over 80 years. The classic Fisher-Price toys always bring up some really lovely childhood memories for me. I especially love the Chatter Telephone as a great gift for a little one (see below for my gift ideas), not only will baby enjoy the toy but it will bring baby’s parents joy and memories!

|During our festivities, a lucky person followed hashtag #FPshowroom and won the Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair that the lovely Lena is holding.|
Each guest left with two Fisher-Price products and most of us are donating these products to families in need. What I love most about the holiday season is giving. This is something I’m trying really hard to instill in my children and I take every chance I get to make people happy.

I had a great time and I thought that this was such a fantastic way for Fisher-Price to show us their great line up of toys and baby gear during the most wonderful time of the year. It was a very casual and FUN evening. I enjoyed great food and I didn’t have to cook or wash any dishes. WIN! I had the chance to reconnect with some ladies that I don’t get to spend time with regularly and I also met a few ladies for the first time. It was a perfect evening and a fabulous holiday party.
I don’t know about you, but I’m nowhere near finished with my gift purchases this Christmas. If you’ve got a baby on your list this holiday season, here are my top five picks under $50 from Fisher-Price:
1) Chatter Telephone
2) Corn Popper
3) Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy
4) Go Baby Go Poppity Pop Musical Dino – This one is giggle inducing. My kids LOVED a variation of this toy!
5) Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair – This one is one of the hottest toys this year and flying off the shelves.
Fisher-Price is not only about the toys, they are also a very trusted source for baby gear. If you’re expecting — or someone on your list is — and you’re looking for quality products, here are my top picks:
1) My Little Snugabunny Cradle ‘n Swing
2) 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother
3) Ocean Wonders Aquarium
4) Infant-to-Toddler Rocker – There is a pink one and it has owls on it!!!! (Super cute!)
5) Calming Vibrations Cuddle Soother
