Stocking Stuffer Ideas with Hasbro Canada


I was introduce to stocking when I was younger.  We would go to my paternal grand-parents and there we would each have a stocking with little goodies in it.   MY uncle was from England and I suspect that this tradition came from him along with the crackers we had to pull to find a surprise in it.   As a French Canadian from Quebec, I don’t recall having stocking on the other side of the family.    Nevertheless, the “tradition” of having a stocking under the tree stayed with me and when we got married and had kids, we decided to do the stocking first thing on Christmas morning.  Most of the time, we would insert chocolate and other small goodies.  But as the kids grow up, I started to wonder what else we could include in the stocking.   So my daughter started to get scrunches for her hair and things like that.  But apart from food and dollar store things (which would last longer than the cheap toys found there) what else could we put in there?

Hasbro Canada has numerous ideas for stockings – from play-dog to characters like Littlest Pet Shop or Minions from Despicable Me I am sure you will find numerous fun things to include in the stocking of your kids this year.



I have received some of their ideas.  Some are for little ones while other are for older kids and even adults.   Let’s look together some of the ideas from Hasbro Canada.


Sesame Street Playskool mini plush

These take-along pals are perfectly sized for preschoolers to take on the go!   Assortment includes Big Bird, Murray, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Ernie and Bert. Each character is sold separately.

It's the perfect choice whether you're having a party, giving gifts to students or just stuffing stockings at home.

Angry Birds GO! Telepods

The Angry Birds app comes to life! This line of Hasbro toys captures all the launching and destroying fun of the app in physical form. Race this Angry Birds kart against other zooming pig and bird karts (other karts sold separately). Then it's easy to take the game to your mobile device (sold separately) and unlock your kart in the Angry Birds app! Just download the app, and then put your Telepods base and kart on your device. Scan your kart into the app and you can race it when you play Angry Birds Go!

Scrabble Slam card game

SCRABBLE SLAM is a fast-paced word game where anything could happen! Race against each other to change the existing four-letter word and get rid of your cards. “Game” could become “fame” and “fame” could become “fate”—you never know where it’ll go. Be the first player to get rid of all of your cards to win!   This card game includes 55 cards and instructions.  It is perfect for 2 to 4 players.


As you can see there are plenty of ideas from Hasbro to fill the stocking in your house.   My favorites this year might be the Sesame Street mini plush as well as the Angry Birds Go! Telepods.  

The Angry Birds Go! app is schedule to be release soon and I expect that many will purchase the app before Christmas.   These telepods will allow you to unlock the kart in the app as well as have fun with the telepods.   Considering there are numerous telepods to collect, it could make a fun item to include in the stocking of your kids this Christmas. 

You can find all these ideas and much more at your favourite toy store.  Next time you are at the store, don’t forget to look for these ideas and much more for your stockings…
