We can't believe the holidays are less than two months away. We are carefully going through our lists to find the premier gifts for our friends and family. To celebrate the holiday season and get some ideas for what to buy our kids, Momtrends was invited to a Target playdate-partychat with Soleil Moon Frye to discuss her top toy picks for the holidays.
As a mom of two and Target'??s Mommy Ambassador, Soleil is always looking for toys that inspire creativity as well as those that are fun for the entire family. At the party, Soleil also spoke of how she looks for toys like Scrabble that "create long lasting traditions" as well as games and toys like the Paper Jamz Pro Series that "bring confidence to youngsters."
My girls loved this event where they could freely play with the latest toys for the holidays while I had the chance to catch up with Soleil since interviewing her over the summer. In addition to sharing her top toy picks (see list below), Soleil spoke about her exciting book tour of Happy Chaos, stating "I love how women are sharing and how supportive they are." Adding, "there is dialogue going on that is inspiring as moms share their experiences, including the ups and downs of parenthood." Soleil also mentioned how the whole experience has been 'incredible' and how she continues to embraces the happy chaos in her life by not being so hard on herself. This is also refreshing to hear and definitely something that bears repeating - especially as we all are about to deal with the chaos of the holiday shopping season.
An afternoon of learning about the latest toys and catching up with Soleil, I was able to have a better idea of what I was going to get my girls as well learn some inspiring tips thanks to her genuine and heartfelt approach to parenting. Happy Holidays and hopefully the shopping part will be less chaotic thanks to these top picks from Target and Soleil.

The Benefits of Creating a Family Fitness Routine
We all know that kids learn best when we model behaviors for them. We can talk all we want about sharing, eating healthy and being kind, but when they see us living these values, they respond. The same goes for fitness. When we make health a priority for ourselves, the kids will ...read more
Mom Picks for Best Modern Wooden Play Gyms
Let's be honest: Most baby gyms look like a primary color explosion of yikesness. And yes, I owned one and found it an absolute lifesaver at that bewitching hour when every child under 1 starts crying right when you need to be cooking dinner. But whenever company arrived, I would ...read more
