What Makes the Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Craft Kit a Good Buy?

This affordable holiday gift for little girls makes for an excellent bonding activity with mom. If the young girls in your life are always trying on new lip gloss or flavored Chapstick, here is a chance to boost their creativity and originality, while promoting socialization skills and motor skill development.

Best for little girls aged 3 years and older, your purchase includes 1 cupcake making tool with a cherry spatula, 1 container of glitter sprinkles, 1 lip gloss base and 2 lip gloss flavors (vanilla and cherry). A collector's menu is also available so you can keep track of which flavors you have, and which you need to pick up.

The system works really simply, and after a couple of times of mom helping out, young girls will quickly get the idea of the operation. 3 lip gloss Sunday containers are included. You simply place any combination of cherry, vanilla and glitter sprinkles into the truck, and it dispenses like soft serve ice cream.

Fill up the Sunday container and you are ready to try on your custom-made lip gloss for size (and taste). The manufacturer notes that this will have an appeal for girls aged 3 to 15 years, but it will probably be more applicable to the younger girls in that range.

Different flavored refills are available online and at Michael's craft stores, as well as at other select brick-and-mortar locations. The truck comes with small ice cream characters, and even when not using the lip gloss making features, young girls enjoy playing with those characters and the ice cream truck.

Several mothers of young girls mentioned they had just as much fun as their daughters playing along with them. Expect anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes making a custom flavored lip gloss. This holiday gift carries high customer satisfaction rankings on Amazon, where it consistently ranks as one of the top sellers in the entire Pre-Kindergarten Toys category.

Doc McStuffins Hospital Care Cart Toy Review

The Doc McStuffins Hospital Care Cart is on Walmart's Hottest 25 Toys list for 2016. Kids love the idea of helping their stuffed animals get well again when they're sick.

It's a toy that's educational as well as a kid favorite thanks to the beloved Doc McStuffins character. The cart is a fun, on-the-go toy that's designed with a lot of eye-catching colors.

The little wheels that look like flowers can roll smoothly over surfaces as your child makes her rounds from room to room to be able to visit her toy patients. The cart is packed with the various items that kids can use their imagination with to take care of any of their injured or sick toys.

They love the thought of being able to emulate Doc from the show airing on Disney Junior. They can line up the toys and have their patients waiting to be seen. During the exam or treatment time, kids can put the toys in the middle of the cart – much like a table at the doctor's office – to find out what's wrong with the patient.

Whether the toy is sick or just in for a checkup, the cart contains everything your child will need to help out. The cart has a light that enables kids to check out their toys and it also has a scanner.

Kids will love using the X-ray to see what's wrong with their patients. The X-ray comes with cards that show the characters on the Disney Junior show. When checking out the patient's heart with the EKG, the cart can enable kids to see the patient's heart patterns.

The heart rhythm tool is on a roller at the front of the cart for easy kid access. There's also a blood pressure pump so kids can check out how their patient is doing. A familiar tune that kids hear on the show "Welcome to the Hospital" song can play and there are various buttons as well as things that can make sounds like in a real doctor's office.

The cart holds all of the medical tools neatly in the drawer so when kids need to rush off to treat the next patient, all they have to do is load it up and go. The hospital care cart does have one toy (Findo is the little dog) that comes with it so that kids can get started right away treating him.

Two minor complaints are most of the pictures, include Lamby and the doctors bag but they are not included. If you are sensitive to noise be aware there is no volume control.

The cart not only encourages kids to use their imagination, but teaches them to be kind and caring.
The suggested age range for this toy is 3-6 years.
