Spin Master Saves the (Last Shopping) Day! Last Minute Gift Ideas and a Giveaway!

11:12 AM Posted by Centsible Mommy

If you are anything like me, you probably woke up this morning suddenly remembering that you have forgotten something for someone on your gift list and now need to venture you way out amongst the other last minute shoppers who are frantically trying to complete their last-minute shopping. As most of us already know, shopping on Christmas Eve can sometimes be disastrous as you frantically fight your way through the crowds to sift through the now picked over selections.

My plan while last-minute Christmas Eve shopping is simply... go in with a plan, and know what I am getting before I even step foot in the store so I can get in, get what I need, and hopefully get out unscathed and unstressed. Here's a few gift suggestions that I hope help you as you trek out on your last minute shopping quest.

For the arts and crafts enthusiast on your list-Paperoni by Spin Master. Paperoni is an arts and crafts activity that uses simple rolls of paper to make incredibly creative works of art! Paperoni design studios are mess-free and require no glue or drying time. Simply pick your colored paper rolls, peel to reveal the sticky color coded 2D or 3D character templates, match the colors with the Paperoni’s and magically create your own original and fun 2D and 3D works of art. Try letting your imagination run wild using the free form sheets to make your own magical creations! Each kit comes with everything you need to make amazing Paperoni masterpieces right out of the box.

Paperoni 3D Design Kit

The Paperoni 3D Design Kit comes with design tools to create amazing 3D masterpieces. There are three designs to make and collect: Monkey, Pig and Elephant. Also comes with clear sticky sheets and long Paperoni rods for freestyle creations and a stand to display your wacky, crazy designs.

Paperoni 3D Design Kit includes:

• 350 pre-cut Paperoni

• One 3D template with self-adhesive

• One tweezer

• Two gem accessories

• Foam pieces for eyes, mouth, ears, feet

• Display stand

Paperoni also has 2D and deluxe kits available. Click over to Paperoni.com to browse the selection of all available Paperoni products.

Another great gift idea from Spin Master is PixOs. Another great find for the arts and crafts enthusiast on your list.

PixOs magically join with water and allow your child to create and design by simply using the PixOs beads and water. Your child can place the beads in position (with or without templates) by using the PixOs pen and then simply spraying with water to hold their creation together. Just allow 10 minutes of drying and your child has just created a masterpiece. Ages 4+.

PixOs™ Ultimate Design Station

The Ultimate Design Station represents the most complete activity center yet. Make 2D and 3D creations. With a built in fan and a suction tool, you'll get everything you need for a total PixOs™ experience.


  • 500 PixOs™,

  • 1 sprayer,

  • 1 design tray,

  • 1 3D 4-way design tray,

  • 3 double sided templates and more!                     

There are a variety of PixOs products available, as well as different themed refill kits, and even the newest in the PixOs line: ChixOs.  Visit PixOs.com to browse all the PixOs products.
