Santa, Don’t Forget The Batteries

Santa, Don’t Forget The Batteries

Be honest, have you been here -> It is Christmas Eve and as you’re perfectly placing the children’s gifts around the tree, it clicks instantly in that moment – you forgot to get batteries! You either:

  1.  Run to the battery over stock hoping to find just enough for Tommy’s new Transformer.
  2. Hop in the car with the hopes that something will still be open for those last minute shoppers like you to buy some batteries.
  3. You start to steal just enough batteries throughout the house to make up the 8 AA you need for Christmas morning.
  4. You call your neighbours, friends, family anyone that is local who are on top of it all and remembered to buy batteries for Christmas morning.
  5. All of the above.

This Santa has done all the above over the years and I am already set to avoid a repeat in past mistakes.

Duracell Powers Holiday Smiles

Each year, thousands of children and their families spend time in Canadian hospitals over the holidays. To help ensure kids can still be kids, and enjoy the magic of the season even in the midst of illness, Duracell will be donating a year’s supply of batteries to hospitals across Canada. These batteries will be used to power the thousands of playroom toys and games that children and their families will be playing with this holiday season and beyond.


For every pack of Duracell Quantum and CopperTop batteries that Canadians purchase at Walmart from December 1st to December 31st, 2014, Duracell   will donate 20 cents to Children’s Miracle Network, with the goal to raise $150,000. To learn more about the campaign follow @Duracell on Twitter.


We all know there’s nothing more disappointing than a child receiving a toy on Christmas morning to find that it’s powerless. With your purchase, not only will you be powering your family’s holiday joy, you’ll also help make a child’s hospital stay a little brighter.

Hasbro sent us a Transformers: Age of Extinction Chomp and Stomp Grimlock to power up with some Duracell Quantum batteries this season. Since Transformers are a huge hit with our three boys we felt like packing this away for Christmas would be huge surprise under the tree.

Boys naturally play hard it usually is a little too hard for moms liking but it naturally takes place. Adventures just got a whole lot bigger with the CHOMP AND STOMP GRIMLOCK Action Figure! The CHOMP AND STOMP GRIMLOCK figure can convert to dino-mode mode – with a chomping jaw and light – up eyes – in one easy step! Plus, the included non-converting OPTIMUS PRIME figure can ride GRIMLOCK into battle and unlock electronic lights, sounds and pop -out weapons! The boys will go crazy seeing this under the tree.
