Holiday Gift-Giving: KRE-O Transformers Building Sets

I find that I can get really overwhelmed with the holidays.  My personal goal this year is to try to keep my spirit bright and do fun holiday activities with the kids.  My bloggy goal is to focus on some toys that I think will be fantastic.

I was given information about KRE-O from Social Moms and Hasbro and it seems to be a pretty fun toy for this holiday season and I am excited to share it with you all .

These are my top 3 reasons that I think this toy will be a blockbuster this holiday season (for kids ages 6 and up):
$7.99 for this 90 piece set.  Fantastic!

1.  KRE-O Transformer sets are affordable.  This is a big one for me personally.  I love great toys but we are on a budget.  There are 12 different sets available and the price range from $7.99-$59.99.  Each set allows kids to construct one of two models- either the robot or vehicle.

2.  Kids of all ages loves Transformers.  And when I say kids of all ages, I mean everyone.    I know that my husband would actually love one of these.  And my 10 year old nephew as well.

3. One of my pet peeves when toys are not compatible with other ones and then you need a whole new toy system for each toy.  I love that these sets will work with other leading brick based sets on the market.

Some of the activities that I plan on doing to keep my spirit bright and have a good holiday season are:

1.  Making cookies with the kids.  We love to bake together and I would love to incorporate more of it during the holidays.

2.  I am going to try to remember that my kids are young and that we can not cram as many activities in as I would sometimes like.  And I will try to remember that it will be okay.

3.  I want to go see the holiday lights with the kids.  We went last year to see the local lights and Sara loved it but Matty was too little.  I think Matty will be old enough this year to really enjoy it, so that should be fun.

4.  I am going to make handmade gifts for family and friends.  I am not sure what yet, but I really want to do this.

5.  I am planning on focusing on all that I have and not all that I want.

6.  Remember those less fortunate.  Sara and I are going to be volunteering to give out food to the homeless this weekend.  I hope that it goes well and we can do this more.

What do you do in order to maintain a bright spirit during the holidays?
