Share Your Top Tips for Spreading Holiday Cheer

Thank you for your interest in this blogging program. We have reached our quota of 50 posts and are reviewing each submission to check they meet all requirements.

The holidays are approaching quickly and it’s time to go present shopping! As you begin thinking about what you are going to buy, SocialMoms and Hasbro would like to share with you a great new gift idea for the entire family: KRE-O building sets! KRE-O is a new, value-filled toy line found in the construction aisle. It’s a standout gift for both Transformers and building fans ages 6 years and up.
In honor of the release of the new KRE-O line, SocialMoms and Hasbro have teamed up to bring you a fun blogging program! Please help us spread the word to your readers and share 3 top reasons why a KRE-O set is a great gift for kids aged 6 and older and for members of the whole family. Then share your top tips for spreading holiday cheer and keeping spirits bright during holiday gatherings. We want to hear all about how you keep friends, family, and children happy and cheerful during the very busy holiday season, full of get-togethers and celebrations. Do you plan a big holiday dinner? Do you have special traditions for opening gifts on Christmas morning? Do you decorate your house with fresh pine or bake gingerbread cookies to make your house smell like the holidays? Do you sing and play Christmas carols the whole month of December? Does your family donate to toy and food drives?  Please share all your tips for spreading holiday cheer and raising everyone’s spirits during the holidays.

Here are some of our top reasons why we think KRE-O is such a perfect holiday gift for your kids. Check out these and so you can share your top three reasons with your readers:
  • There’s a KRE-O set for everyone and every budget. There are twelve KRE-O Transformers sets available, from Basic sets for beginner builders to deluxe sets for the pros. The sets range in price from $7.99-$59.99 and each set allows kids to construct one of two models: a Transformers character in robot or vehicle mode offering two different builds in one! Most also come with a unique, collectible KREON figure that add another level of play to the sets.
  • The KRE-O Transformers sets resonate with kids of all ages. The third Transformers movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, was a smash this past summer and the KRE-O collection is inspired by the Generation 1 Transformers lore  the 1980’s, so 6 year olds to teens and adults can get in on the action once KRE-O sets are unwrapped.
  • KRE-O bricks are compatible with other leading brick based sets on the market so families don’t have to invest in a new brick system or worry about mixing up bricks and blocks! Unwrap KRE-O gifts and welcome them easily into your toy chest.

We're looking for quality over speed, so please read on.
