If you look at all the "Hot Toy Lists" that are popping up for 2016 (including my own Holiday Wish Guide), you're no doubt seeing that there's a few items that are across-the-board hits with a lot of play experts. The right toys can help make the holidays magical, and among the companies that know a lot about holiday magic is Hasbro. The folks behind icons like Transformers, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe and Glo-Worm have been making magic for years, and to power that magic, the team at Duracell is always ready, supplying batteries like the ones included with the FurReal Friends Bootsie. One of the hottest toys of 2016 is no doubt the FurReal Friends Torch, My Blazin' Dragon, and the place you can get him (along with the batteries) is Toys "R" Us! Check out Torch & Bootsie in-action in the video below...

True Value selected 8 of the main characters and developed a 3-color palette for each character. In addition to the paint, True Value developed a Trolls paint tray kit that has 5 custom Trolls character stencils, stencil brush, roller and roller cover to "Trollify" any room - all available exclusively at your locally-owned True Value hardware stores or on TrueValue.com (where you can find all kinds of fun project inspiration as well).

I can fully declare that fall is my favorite season of them all. Sure, I do like every season for different reasons at different times, but there’s just something about the switch from summer to fall that makes everything just feel right. I’ve often felt that perhaps my autumn obsession (and that of all-things pumpkin) might be due, in part, to the fact that I’m an October baby - born just days before Halloween. While there’s many things to love about fall, family is a big part of all of it - from visits to the pumpkin patches and apple orchards, to gathering around the table for a great meal. I’ve always been a big breakfast guy, but when the whole family (or the extended family) is home, there’s nothing better on a weekend than to start the day off right… a time to take things beyond “breakfast” and make it a BreakFEAST with Hungry Jack!
