Check Out These Stocking Stuffer Ideas -- Many Great Gifts Under $5 + Every Yoobi Purchase Gives Back! #YoobiGives (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.


I was first introduced to Yoobi last year while stocking up on school supplies for my girls for the new school year.  My girls are all about arts and crafts, and have really gotten into those coloring books with the intricate designs. So, I was in search for markers and colored pencils during that visit to Target.  But, if you are a Target-holic (yes, I admit that I am), then you know you can't go to Target and just grab a few items.  The $1 bins in the front of the store are my weakness, followed by their arts and crafts supplies.  I love a good deal, and when I find great supplies to use with the girls for school and during our crafting, I can't resist.  Come on, you know you love Target, too!  My girls love to shop like me, and were able to recognize the red Target symbol when they are 2 and 3 years old.  They would point to it when driving and ask to go to Target.  And, more times than not, I would remember I needed something -- and then walk out with enough bags to fill the trunk. :-)

As, when it comes the holidays, I know that Target has me covered when it comes to great stocking stuffer and last minute gift ideas.  And, they never disappoint with their sales and product offering, which includes my family's favorite brand, which also gives back with each purchase, Yoobi.  If you follow my blog, then you have probably read a handful of posts about Yoobi. Usually I share for back-to-school and around the holidays, as they have a great product line for family's who love getting creative, and LOVE arts and crafts like my girls and I do.

Recently, the folks at Yoobi surprised us with a huge box of some of their popular and must have gift ideas for the season.  Some of the products are great for last minute gift ideas to wrap and leave under the tree for your kids, while others are perfect stocking stuffers, many of which are under $5.  You can find the following items I will be sharing with you at, as well as at your local Target and through

Like I said, I was sent a wonderful selection of Yoobi products, that left my girls with huge smiles on their faces, and asking to get crafting.  

These goodies couldn't have come at a better time as we had a long list of homeschooling friends the girls were swapping handmade Christmas cards with, and the markers, washable paint brushes and glitter glue pens would make card making a breeze, and so much fun.

Check out all the stuff the folks at Yoobi sent out way....

Savannah loved the paint-your-own piggy bank.  I ended up making her wait until I could buy another one, so that both my girls had one, and then we made an afternoon of it, painting and decorating their very own piggy banks, and then filling it with change they had stashed around the house.  Now, their Yoobi piggy banks, painted by them, are displayed on their dressers in their bedroom.  And, whenever someone comes to visit, they are quick to show off their piggy banks, which they are so proud of.  

Washable Paint Brush Set, 24 Pack - Multicolor

The girls also loved the Washable Paint Brush Set, 24 Pack - Multi-color (which looked like an artist's paintbrush.  If you have artsy child in your life, and they don't have their own set of these washabale paint brushes, then you definitely have to pick up this set for them. Say goodbye to a dripping paintbrush, or spilled paint or water cups, when you use the Washable Paint Brush Set, 24 Pack - Multicolor from Yoobi.  And, they are washable! :-)  

I ended up picking up canvases at the local craft store for the girls, and they used their new Yoobi washable paint brushes to paint a picture, to give as a gift this holiday season.  Savannah painted a scene with dogs and cats, while Bella tried her hand at some of her favorite cartoon characters.  Both girls did a great job, and I can't wait for them to surprise their Nana and Papa with them at Christmas.

Kids who love to craft can never have enough supplies, and the Craft Chest from Yoobi is another must have item for arts and craft lovers.  The Yoobi Craft Chest is filled to them brim with a wonderful assortment of craft supplies including: 5 foam sheets, 5 felt sheets,̴ 65 pom poms, 4 jumbo pom poms, 25 pipe cleaners, 25 foam sticks, 20 googly eyes, feathers and foam stickers.

While my girls waited for the second piggy bank to arrive, dove right in and had a blast creating fun things with the different supplies found in the Yoobi Craft Chest.  They even used some of the foam sheets and pom pom craft supplies from this fun craft chest, to  make some of the homemade Christmas cards.  The even used the pipe cleaners and popsicle sticks to make a few handmade ornaments to give their close friends, for them to hang on their trees. 

And, when they were done crafting with the help of their new Yoobi Craft Chest, they went straight to the DIY Melty Bead Kit, which they absolutely loved. Yes, there were a handful of beads that wound up on the floor and that I stepped on -- hurts a little less than a LEGO -- but, it was nice seeing the girls sit together and enjoy time together as they made fun bead art.
