If you love your kids as much as I love mine, then you’re probably wondering how on earth you’re going to score those cool mom points, this Christmas. I mean, cool mom points are totally necessary. Cool mom points are what keeps us young. Well, my friend, I bring you glad tidings of great joy!

Here are some of my favorite Hasbro Christmas gift ideas and a chance for you to win!


Your little boy would give you an endless supply of hugs and kisses if you make sure that Santa (cough) drops off some Transformers merch under your Christmas tree. Plus, it would be a total score if you included tickets to the latest movie in the Transformers franchise, Bumblebee, that will be launching in December. The cool gear on offer includes the:

Bumblebee Showcase Helmet that captures the cool swagger of the loyal Autobot scout.
Power Charge Bumblebee action figure that converts from robot mode to classic Volkswagen Beetle mode in 17 steps so kids can amp up the power in 2 modes.
Bumblebee DJ Stryker figure that brings a whole new beat to the game by interacting with fans and allowing them to create their own original tunes.


My older boys are going to freak out when they learn about the much-anticipated nerf Rival range. Designed for kids older than 14, these high-powered blasters are durable, and its battle-tested accessories enhances the action-packed NERF experience. Some of the cool gadgets you’ll find in stores are:
