Brilliant Sky Toys: An Incredible Toy Store #HolidayGiftGuide


When I heard about Brilliant Sky Toys, I so wished there was one nearby!  As there isn't, I was still blessed to be able to look through their list of award winning toys, books, and games to get Christmas ideas for my kiddos.   The store has come up with a list of 10 Brilliance Award winners, and my children and I definitely applaud their choices.  I had the opportunity to review 4 of these toys, all of which are wonderful! 

We chose to review the Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (a super cool building set all of my kiddos love. It came with instructions to build SO many things and, once you've got down how they work, they foster so much creativity!), Lottie Dolls (a favorite in our house), Create Your Own Storybook (my daughters love writing and this actually publishes their book!), and the Sew Cute Owl Set (my daughter has been wanting to learn to sew and she absolutely loved this set, and so did I).  I love this selection of toys!

Sewing her Sew Cute Owl


A Plus-Plus Mini Cooper...
 
...with a guy driving it!







And here's a video of one of our favorite toys: the "Autumn Leaves Lottie Doll".  I absolutely love Lottie Dolls!  They're so sweet, and so perfect--very original and unique, and a great option over Barbies.  Many of them are scientists, animal lovers, nature girls, and just all out active and charming little ladies.




For the fifth year in a row, parents and grandparents alike can use this brilliant list as a guide for holiday shopping, birthday presents and Thanksgiving homecoming gifts.  The Brilliant Sky chain chooses its Brilliance Award Winners upon quality, the value of open-ended play and the simple beauty of a child's fascination and delight. With the huge variety of toy buying occasions coming up, there’s truly something for everyone represented in this great group of toys. From finger puppets, arts & crafts kits, dolls and building bricks, it’s evident that childhood playtime really hasn't changed that much!

The Top 10 Brilliance Award Winners:
 

·        Squigz Starter Set (24 pieces)
·        Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (480 pieces)
·        Lottie Dolls
·        Doodle Quest
·        Create Your Own Storybook
·        Super Stadium Baseball Game
·        LoopDeLoom
·        Sew Cute Sets
·        Illustrated Adventure Stories and Illustrated Fairy Tales
·        Paint Your Own Porcelain Bowls

Find out if there's a Brilliant Sky Toys & Books at their store map.  If you get an opportunity to drop by the store and do a little Christmas shopping, please come back and let me know. I'd love to hear all about it!



Special thanks to the wonderful people at KidsStuffPR and Brilliant Sky Toys & Books for providing us with this review and giveaway opportunity.
