xia-xia-logoOne of my kid’s favorite things about me being a blogger, is getting the chance to play with the latest toys, often times before anyone else!  They’ve come to expect a new toy or game or something nearly daily and whenever they see the UPS or FedEx trucks they always assume that it’s for me!  While I certainly don’t condone spoiling children, I do love that they enjoy the opportunities I receive for my blog as much as I do!

Recently, I was given the opportunity to host a party for my kids and their friends, a Xia Xia party to be exact and they were ecstatic!

If you’re not familiar with Xia Xia hermit crabs, and if you have kiddos you probably already are, let me introduce you to these cute little creatures!


I have to mention that my children have begged me for years for hermit crabs, real, live ones, but to be honest they kind of gross me out, so my answer has always been NO.  Thankfully someone thought to make Xia Xia hermit crabs, now my little ones can play till their hearts content and I don’t have to be grossed out…they’re actually kind of cute!

Lil Man and Lil Diva had their cousin B over a couple of weeks ago to have a Xia Xia Shell Party!  Before the party got started I let each of the kiddos pick out the Xia Xia hermit crab that he or she wanted and then I pretty much let them have at it!  As you’ll see in the video a little later on, they had a great time hunting for Easter eggs, changing the Xia Xia shells, and playing together like only little ones can!

Each of the kids had a Xia Xia hermit crab of their own and they got to choose a couple Xia Xia Shells that they ended up swapping around several times before the festivities were over!  They kids had fun playing some of the games I suggested and even making up some of their own, but they were happiest when they were just playing quietly by themselves with their Xia Xia Hermit Crabs! 

If you’re struggling with what to put in their Easter baskets this weekend look no further than Xia Xia, seriously my kids love them and have played with them every day since the party!
