This is our first year creating a list of gifts GUB recommends for the little kids.
We wanted a way to share the information right from the place we found it online so we decided to give MonkeyWish a try.
I first learned about MonkeyWish at Blogalicious'12 I thought It was a cool tool and knew it would be perfect for us to share our holiday guide.
MonkeyWish.com is a new generation gift registry that provides a place for members to add any item, from any store, for any occasion. Membership is free. Launched in 2012, MonkeyWish strives to provide a convenient service that allows members to add products from any retailers onto one, easy-to-manage list. Then, friends can view the member's list on MonkeyWish, and click directly to the retailer's site to make the actual purchase.I added items to my list based off toys the kids either already have or have played with and loved!
I also added them recently so prices should be current. The holiday season is when I like a good deal so I tend to shop a little closer to the holidays.
We also wanted to feature toys that were under $50 that would be great gifts for under the tree or to stuff those stalkings.
You can view our list here: http://monkeywish.com/site/mylists/12755/4078
no need to sign up but we highly recommend you do for any wish list you may need to create!
They are also mobile which means you can scan bar-codes directly from stores using your smartphones!!!!
This is an Item screenshot of a product on our list.
By clicking on the image in our list you get details such as price, description and where we found the item. You can also select purchase and it takes you right to the page!
And since it is the season for giving we'd love to give one Lucky GUB reader the chance to win 2 of our items from our list.
The Playskool Sesame Street 2-pk figures pictured below! This is a total of 4 little figures!!!
