TOYS FOR EVERYONE WITH PRIMA

The first of September may mean a lot of things to different people; the start of Spring, braai days with family and friends, making more time for girls night out or saving up to buy that JJ Schoeman fragrance everybody is talking about. For me though, September signals the start of the 'end of the year'. The lull before the madness. The calm before the storm. When we get to September, I realise that their are only 4 glorious months till December, and my favourite time of year? Christmas time. I might not celebrate Christmas in my faith but to me it's the most incredible time of year, full of love and happy things. Not to mention all the shiny, blinking lights. What girl doesn't love some sparkle in her life. 

 

One of my favourite things to do with my sister when I was a little girl was to sit and wait patiently for the both the Makro and Reggies Christmas catalogues to come in the post. When they did arrive, we were never disappointed. These books were huge, full of toys and new items that any cool kid would have wanted. I can remember the two of us chilling for hours on our parents bed just paging through them, and making mental notes of what we had to have of course.

 

Now that I have you thinking of toys and Christmas, I thought I would give you a sneak peek of the must-have items for the jolly season courtesy of Prima Toys. Rave Review was thrilled to be one of the special guests at Prima Toys 45th Birthday Bash in Sandton a few weeks ago. What fun it was. From delish food to popcorn machines, a balloon sculptor and a crazy photo booth, it was a wonderful morning. By the way, there were no kids in the building. Just some fabulous adult editors and journalists taking a trip down memory lane. I was particularly blown away by the statue of a cake that greeted us in the main area of the event. A Cake Boss type creation, entirely edible, and showcasing all of Prima Toys standout best sellers over the last 45 years. Truly special.

 

Here are our top picks for Christmas from Prima Toys awesome range.

 

 

 

 

BABY BORN

 

I had a doll like this this when I was a kid, but mine just sat there and didn't say too much. The Baby Born of the new generation is an interactive delight. With 8 lifelike functions, 10 accessories and NO batteries required, this will be on the list for every little girl. The Baby Born doll drinks, and wets her nappy, she cries real tears, opens and closes her eyes and feeds. The Baby Born comes in a choice of girl or boy, plus her or she arrives complete with a plate, spoon, potty, dummy, nappy and 5 sachets of baby food to get you started.
