November 25, 2015

Welcome to SuthinGirl’s gift guide for the kids on your holiday shopping list!

C’mon, you know you love that moment when a child opens a gift from you and they freak out because it was EXACTLY what they wanted and you are now the COOLEST adult in the history of adults that they have ever known. Talk about a nice boost to the ol’ ego!

I’ve chosen some gifts that are sure to fill those little faces with wonder and joy. Let’s do this!

For the Kids: Fun, Fun, Fun!

Mini Galaxy Projector $25 ON SALE $20

This is soooo cool! Explore the cosmos with this geodesic orb, which projects a vibrant image of the Milky Way galaxy onto the ceiling when it’s placed in a small amount of water. A fun addition to bath time, parties and sleepovers, it also creates a soothing glow from a bedside table.


The goal at GoldieBlox is to get girls building.

By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, their story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things!

GoldieBlox Girl Inventor Zipline Action Figure $24.99

GoldieBlox Ruby Rails Skydive Action Figurine $24.99

It’s time for action! More than just a doll, Goldie’s articulated shoulders, hips, knees and joints along with specially designed hands and feet are designed for action. With the included construction kit, kids learn how to build Goldie a 13′ zipline and send her soaring! Ages 4+ (Best for Ages 6 – 10)

Goldie’s tech-savvy and stylish BFF Ruby Rails is ready to head out on a skydiving adventure. She has fully-articulated joints, hands that grip, and a kit to build her coder backpack and working fabric parachute – all she needs is you! Ages 4+ (Best for Ages 6 – 10)


Wild West Shooting Set $39.99

Get ready for some rootin’, tootin’, target-shootin’ action! The Wild West Shooting Set is the safe indoor target game that kids love. Simply line up the reusable plastic targets on the plastic log. Then, take aim and fire!

The toy “six-shooter” fires a beam of harmless infrared light up to 25 feet away. A direct hit sends the targets flying off the base, along with exciting sound effects. Ages 6+


Makey Makey: An Invention Kit for Everyone $49.95

What is Makey Makey?
Invented at MIT, this kit enables you to turn the whole world into a keyboard!
How Does it Work?
Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey. For example, you and a banana (or an ice cube, or a kitty cat). When you touch the banana, the computer just thinks a keyboard key is being pressed, so you can type a letter, jump in a video game, take a picture or play music.
What materials work with Makey Makey?
Ketchup, fruits, plants, coins, grandma, silverware, anything that is wet, pets, aluminum and hundreds more. Really any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity.
What can I create?
Make a banana piano, play Mario on a play dough game pad, take a selfie of your cat every time she drinks water! Ages 8+


Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater $54.99


When I was about eight years old my Aunt Anne gave me a puppet theater for Christmas. I’ll NEVER forget it because A) it was the perfect gift for a little girl who perhaps had a teensy bit of a dramatic nature and B) it was HUGE and by far the envy of all the other kids in the family!

This wooden puppet theater has a sturdy, non-tip base and plenty of room inside for a puppeteer or two to put on a show! The playful, detailed graphics and plush, velvety curtains will help inspire creativity and expression in any child. Includes a chalkboard panel and clock with movable hands. 24.75” x 52” x 18” Ages 3+ 



Melissa & Doug Palace Pals $15.42

Melissa & Doug Bold Buddies Puppets $19.59

Boys’ Star Wars™ for Crewcuts Glow-in-the-Dark ‘We Can Rule the Galaxy’ Sweatshirt $59.50

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it was decided that a glow-in-the-dark Star Wars™ fleece sweatshirt would be the coolest thing he could possibly wear. Kid Sizes 2 – 14


BB-8™ App-Enabled Droid™ $179.99



This is the Droid™ you’re looking for.
Over the years, the magic of Star Wars™ has always lived on screen and in our imaginations. Thanks to our advancements in technology, it’s now possible to bring a new part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ into your home.

BB-8 relates to your interactions, showing a range of expressions and actually perking up at the sound of your voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously or make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself. Even create and view holographic recordings.

Rather than using the Force, BB-8 is powered by induction charging and connects via Bluetooth Smart BLE with your iPhone, iPad or other device. Its tough polycarbonate shell keeps it safe from water and the dark side. Choking Hazard: Not for children under 3
