Time to Buy With Time to Play!

Disclosure: I wasn't paid for this post. I was working on a giveaway for y'all and had to tell you about this in the process. So you get all the benefits of my work. You're welcome! November is a busy month for me. This November, we add tonsillectomy to the list of Thanksgiving, birthdays, taking Christmas pictures and getting the leg up on Santa. So when I heard that Time to Play had an app, I added them to the list of things I was thankful for this month.

Last year, the frog princess and I sat down for over an hour looking through their reviews. It's how I was able to figure out what she wanted Santa to bring her. We got to check out their video reviews, she got to see toys without me taking her to the store to see the gazillion toys there and I got to make my shopping list. They then came out with the cool price comparison tool so you could see where to get said goods. Which was so needed by yours truly.

This year, they have done me a solid. They've given me an app to do all of this. Here's some of the cool features that will make your life a little easier:
