I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Are you struggling to find out what the best toys to give your kids? It can be overwhelming to sift through all the options. For us, this is the first year our daughter is asking for particular items. Seems like every day it’s something new! I remember when I was a kid my mom would ask me to circle what I wanted in the toy catalog. She laughs as she tells me I circled almost every item.
Funny enough, this year my daughter did the same thing when I let her look at the new Best Buy Holiday Toy Guide. When I explained to her that Santa could only bring a few toys to each child she told me what she REALLY wanted this Christmas season. This helped me narrow down the options.
Best Toys to Give Your Kids
Gift ideas for kids ages 3-7
I have yet to see a child not smile when they receive a Hatchimals Surprise gift. The pure anticipation of waiting for them to hatch is fun to watch. It’s the only time I have seen my child patiently wait for anything!
Gift ideas for kids ages 8 – 12
You can never go wrong with gifting Legos even if you tend to step on them a million times over. Right now, superheroes are hot! The Batman Movie Lego set is a hot item this year.
Cozmo the robot
Drones, robots or remote-control toys are best selling items for 2017. Anki’s Cozmo the robot, a fun-loving sidekick who evolves as he gets to know you. He knows your name and face, and he can express emotions, play games and explore his environment thanks to artificial intelligence.
Gift ideas for ages 13 and older
Let’s not forget the older kids that seem to be more difficult to buy for due to their picky behavior. Trust me, I struggle with my oldest because all he wants is money, but I want to give him something I can put under the tree.
