Sharing is caring!

I found myself needing to visit the toy aisle today. Our youngest was due a prize for an accomplishment and so off we went to the store… With the rest of St. Louis. You’d think that Thanksgiving was next week or something. Everyone was shopping for the turkey dinner. The store was packed! We saw so many of the best holiday toys while there. Read on to find out what will be under our Christmas tree this year and what you need to watch for Black Friday shopping!

10 Best Holiday Toys For Under The Christmas Tree

Every year various companies will send samples, that in turn get wrapped to go under our tree from Santa, and I photograph the items to include in a blog post for you all to hopefully get ideas for what Santa will bring to your house. I love this part of my job. It’s fun to learn about all the hot holiday toys and then pass the ideas on to you. Makes me feel sort of like Mrs. Claus! Below you will find five of the top holiday toys that arrived on my front porch and a few that I already picked up during the year. PLUS a few more toys that I’m trying to convince Mr. Claus that the kids need to also receive this year. *wink* Ten of the best toys that kids will want to find under the tree!

You better watch out

You better not cry

Better not pout

I’m telling you why

Mrs. Claus is coming to town
