Tonka Tough Truck Adventures Gift Set


Toy company HASBRO and Kidtoons joined together to create movies and shows based on toys that are appropriate for young children to view. On this page, the fifth in a series, let's celebrate Tonka Tough Truck Adventures: The Biggest Show on Wheels!

Hard work. Heroics. Humor. Horsepower. Home cookin'. Combined to "drive" Tonka Tough Truck Adventures. Any construction truck loving boy or girl will enjoy watching Joe, a mechanic, and the other characters as they find adventure in a revved up world.

This show features unique vehicle characters as the heroes of the CGI-animated film. Join Joe, the master mechanic, along with the 12-ton, 4-wheel drive action heroes: Axle, Rally, Gator, Bolt, Fins, Slice, Cutter, Trapper, Dunes and Crusher in the small town of Biggsburg as they encounter big adventures in their super charged world.

To create a fun gift set, simply put together a copy of the DVD with one of the 4-wheel drive action heroes!

Bob the Builder: Teamwork Time Gift Set


Toy company HASBRO and Kidtoons joined together to create movies based on toys that are appropriate for young children to view. On this page, the forth in a series, let's celebrate Bob the Builder: Teamwork Time.

In the 2012 program, we find out all about teamwork when Dizzy learns to be thoughtful, Roley learns that safety is the most important, and Scrambler needs a team to get the job done, which are all important lessons.

I personally know a couple of grown men who would have loved to own this Bob the Builder Deluxe Talking Tool Belt set when they were little boys. It features everything your young (aged 2 to 5 years) builder requires to work his own construction site, including a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, a wrench, a hammer and a ruler. He’ll be impressed with the belt bucket when it speaks in Bob’s voice and, perhaps most importantly, he will LOVE wearing the hard hat.


If you are creating a gift set, start with a copy of the program on DVD and then add an item like this fun construction set!

Noddy and Friends Movie Gift Set


Toy company HASBRO and Kidtoons joined together to create movies based on toys that are appropriate for young children to view. On this page, the third in a series, let's celebrate Noddy and Friends as seen on PBS.

Noddy is set in a village called Toyland whose people are "committed to friendship, respect, caring, and cooperation." The doll we know as Toddy loves helping others. In this film, he helps those around him realize that it doesn't really matter who goes first but rather that everyone gets a chance to take part.

If you are creating a gift set, start with a copy of the program on DVD and then add an item like this adorable plush Noddy!

Thomas & Friends Great Discovery Movie Gift Set


Toy company HASBRO and Kidtoons joined together to create movies based on toys that are appropriate for young children to view. On this page, the second in a series, let's celebrate Thomas and Friends: The Great Discovery Movie.





In this movie, Sodor Day is coming and the engines are busy preparing. When Thomas gets lost in the mountains, he discovers the old town of Great Waterton! Soon the whole island is buzzing with the news of his discovery. Sir Topham Hatt puts Thomas, along with his friends, in charge of restoring the town in time for the Sodor Day celebrations.



Fans of Thomas the Tank Engine need to start with a complete set like the Great Discovery set shown here though of course a complete set is expensive. If buying a set is too much for your budget there are, of course, plenty of other Thomas toy items available. Whatever you choose, combine it with a copy of the movie to create a great little boy's gift set!

See you
at the movies!

Harry Potter Wallets


Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. That is definitely the case with these attractive Harry Potter wallets. They feature themes from our favorite book and movie franchise and they are so cute that I hardly need say a word about them! A picture alone would do the job quite nicely.

Anyway, whether you prefer the Mischief Managed theme, you would like the Hogwarts Express wallet with the platform 9 3/4 reference or you always dreamed of an acceptance letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, there is a wallet for you.


You can read more about them and find them on eBay right now by clicking here. They seem reasonably priced for a product that is not leather. Yes, that is the obvious downside of these wallets. It would be great if they were leather but, if they were constructed from leather, no doubt they would be a lot more expensive.

See you
at the movies!

Create A Barbie Mermaid Tale Gift Set


Toy company HASBRO and Kidtoons joined together to share movies based on popular toys that are appropriate for young children to view. On this page, the first in a series, let's celebrate Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2. Here is a peek into the story via the official movie trailer:




The animated movie A Mermaid Tale 2 finds Barbie acting as the character Merliah, a champion surfer who also happens to be a mermaid and a princess. "Anything is possible when you stay true to yourself!"

Fans of Barbie and her adventures will want to own this 2013 animated Barbie movie and probably the first movie, too. I am also sure that they would like to own this mermaid-themed Barbie doll. Put the two items together to come up with a great gift set for a young Barbie fan. If you would like to put this gift set together for a wee one in your life, you will find the Mermaid dolls on Amazon by clicking here and the movies by clicking here.

See you
at the movies!

Kidtoons: Movie Fun For Young Kids

In 2004, KIDTOONS hit on a way to make life easier for parents. The movie company teamed up with toy giant HASBRO to develop movies based on toys that are appropriate for taking young children to see.

After that, Kidtoons expanded and teamed up with Sesame Street, National Geographic and many others, to bring a wide variety of G-rated animated entertainment to the screen every weekend at participating theatres across the country.

Every Saturday and Sunday, Kidtoons theatres showcased a fun, G-rated matinee movie and provided a family experience filled with entertaining, kid-friendly characters, as well as cartoon shorts, music videos and sing-alongs before each movie. They even had fun giveaways for the kids, such as stickers, temporary tattoos, activity books or toys after every film.

Here area a few of the films that were the result of this effort that are appropriate for young children. If you are trying to put together a movie themed gift package for a young child or just have a child who is really into a certain film, you will appreciate the interesting toys that are available to link up with each film.

The following titles have been included. Where indicated, you can click through to my page about a specific movie and theme.

Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2
Thomas and Friends: The Great Discovery Movie
Sesame Street's Abby Cadabby in Wonderland
Noddy and Friends
Candy Land The Great Lollipop Adventure
