I have always loved the holidays, the cheesier the better. I love every aspect of the holidays, the traditions, Santa, decorating, Hanukkah (we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah), dressing up and of course the shopping.
This year is going to be the most fun yet with Dylan understanding more and more. She has been talking about Santa for weeks already. I have not brought up Santa, I keep forgetting, for a few reasons. I am Jewish and never grew up with Santa. Well, always knew about him and got a gift from him yearly but that’s all. She wants to read all her Santa books all the time lately. I say, we celebrate Hanukkah too and that’s first. Her face is confused, like so?! Little does she know, she will get 8 gifts then too.
I am normally so into the holidays and all the traditions to the annoyingness of my husband. But this year, I can’t seem to get into it.
Luckily the holiday season has just started, I have a week or so to get into it before Hanukkah starts. I hate when Hanukkah is so early. I am still wrapping my head around it being the end of November. This year FLEW!
I wanted to share the fun things I have already got my daughters over the year. I always stock up for the holidays throughout the year, especially when a store is closing, Thank you Toys ‘R’ Us!
Disney Promotional Code: Amazing for 20% off, SHIPMAGIC for frees shipping for orders over $75
- Beauty and the Beast ”Be Our Guest” Singing Tea Cart Play Set: This will be a their “big” gift to share. I have heard great things about this! Even though we are in a tiny space, I gave into this. Dylan is really into Beauty and the Beast this year so she will love this. It was originally $49 but on sale for $39 and this weekend an additional 20% on Disney. Total $32
Ariel Classic Doll with Ring – The Little Mermaid – 11 1/2′‘: I got 2 of these type of dolls, one per daughter but likely Dylan will take both until Tabitha can really stand up for herself. Of course, Ariel is a little for me living out my childhood. The dolls come with a matching ring for your child to wear. You can get these dolls in all the characters. I can see us collecting them. $14.95 markdown to $12 and with an additional 20% it came to $8
Melissa & Doug Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Wooden Tool Kit (15 pcs): Perfect gift for little Tabitha, and it’s a toy we don’t own already. It’s $14.95 plus 20% down to $14.95. Also found on Amazon for $11.96 and free shipping if you have Prime.
Rapunzel Singing Sketchbook Ornament – Tangled: Every year I get the girls an ornament from the year. This year, Dylan has really taken to Disney movies and talks about Punzel (how she says Repunzel) often. I thought this was the perfect ornament to add to her collection. and I just noticed it sings! She will love this. Originally $19.95, marked down to $11 and now is $8 with 20% off.
Mud Pie Mermaid Bath Plastic Toy Set Kids Product: I am always searching for items we don’t own for little Tabitha. She loves Mermaids and we don’t have these adorable bath toys.

- Girls’ two-toned gumball necklace: Dylan loves all things jewelry and so does Tabitha. I will likely pay for not getting them both this but I am risking it this time. Was $18.40, marked down to $9,99 with 40% off, came to $6
- Girls’ two-toned gumball bracelet: Matches the necklace perfectly. Was $12.50, marked down to $9.50 and with 40% off it’s $5.70

- Girl’s earrings: $9.50 marked down to $9.50 with 50% off $3.75
That’s the round-up of what I ordered this weekend. I know I am lacking on gifts for Tabitha. I am finding it challenging since we own a lot of the toys already and we are limited on space. Do you have suggestions to share?
I have a ton of toys in my closet from the Toys ‘R’ Us Closing sale! I will do a round-up of those on an upcoming post.
I am dying to know, what goodies did you get for your kiddos or anyone else this weekend? Where did you find the best deals?
