I was one of 20 DFW Bloggers chosen to attend Chosen By You Expo, a three-day gift extravaganza event in Fort Worth hosted by Walmart back in July. This event showcased hundreds of items in several different categories, such as toys, kitchen, tech, apparel, entertainment, holiday gifts, food, etc. Along with other invited consumers, we had the chance to vote and give feedback on our favorite products in all categories that we would like to see at Walmart for the holiday shopping.
With a provided laptop in hand, I went around to several areas that caught my eye and that I was most interested in. I’m happy to present to you my top 20+ picks for the 2015 holiday season. The worst thing about this whole event was that I had to keep it a secret for three months!!! Now the cat is out of the bag…and I can breathe!
AND….that’s not all…I was one of the very few who got to attend a very special (behind black curtains) Star Wars presentation. This was hush to many that attended the expo. We were not allowed to take pictures but were allowed to take notes. However, I was sent a few pics from staff that I am now allowed to use. Also, all of the toys behind the black curtains went out on Walmart floors on FORCE FRIDAY, September the 4th…so they’re no longer a secret either. See my favorites below.
Kids were not allowed to go with us while we were working; however, they were allowed to attend the following day. Since Fort Worth is only a few miles from my home, I returned the next day with my son. I would say toys were the main attraction at this gift expo. Santa and his elves are going to be b u s y this Christmas season!!

GAMES & COOL STUFF
Parents – you’re going to want to stock up on batteries and have them ready for Christmas morning!! All Star Wars toys came out Sept. 4th on Force Friday. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Star Wars Sleeping Bag will definitely be a hit with kids of all ages. Only $12.88 at Walmart. It’s made in the USA and is 10ft long….so even adults can take part in sleeping outdoors with the kiddos!!
