This year it was very easy to narrow down a couple of toys for the boys that were going to make it to our list of favourites to put under the tree. Our two year old LOVES Elmo. He has a few Elmo books and enjoys watching Sesame Street clips. On the other hand, our five year old is obsessed with Star Wars. We recently watched the trilogy together and he has been asking for Star Wars books and clothing and basically any Star Wars merchandise.

Enter our two picks from Hasbro. The Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo Doll and the Playskool Heroes Star Wars Millennium Falcon. We think these are great holiday gift ideas and we are excited to see what they boys think when they open their presents on Christmas morning.

Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo

This cuddly and interactive Elmo toy has 150+ responses, plus 8 games and activities to help keep kids engaged. When playtime is over, preschoolers can cuddle with him while listening to a lullaby.

Play All Day Elmo has 2 modes of play to encourage both younger and older children to have fun! In Toddler mode, young children can enjoy basic cause-and-effect play, like tickling Elmo or squeezing his nose to see how Elmo might respond. In Preschool mode, preschoolers and Elmo can take play to the next level with games and activities. They can play pat-a-cake, wiggle and giggle through a freeze dance, stop and go through a game of “Red Light Green Light,” and more! Elmo’s built-in sensors help him respond to different activities in fun ways; he can react when he’s in the air, when he’s upside down, and even when he’s moving around.
