The holiday season is upon us. I’ve given you a few holiday gift guides already but now it’s time to present the top kids toys for the season. This is alway the exciting guide. The one that explains to you just what that item is on list for Santa! Many of these toys I was able to see first hand over the summer at Blogger Bash in NYC. So many great items for holiday gift giving. Here are a few of my favorites…
Top Kids Toys For Holiday 2016
If you watch the BattleBots television show like we do then you know why this top toy pick is so sought after. Picture it. Remote control BattleBots that are all you need to have your very own competition. But who will be crowned the champion? That will depend on the amount of hits that each bot takes on. BattleBots Rivals are designed with each bot having parts that will come off with pressure. Lose all your pieces and your bot is out. Even if your bot loses the competition… these remote control BattleBots are a definite win this holiday season!
The little girl of our house is obsessed with Kate & Mim-Mim and the littlest guy likes to watch the show too! It’s a a fun show that allows kids to go on a magical adventure with Kate and her bunny Mim-Mim. Definitely something that all kids can relate to in having a favorite stuffed friend. The Kate & Mim-Mim doll set is a must have this holiday season. Pair it with a Kate & Mim-Mim DVD and you are sure to bring a smile to the face of children who are up for an adventure.
If you have a young artist on your list and then another one who is all about emojis… this gift idea will pull double duty! The Crayola Emoji Maker comes complete with everything you need to create your very own custom emojis. Not just your ever day, run of the mill emojis BUT custom. Even the littlest artists always have a great deal of creativity and that comes in handy with this emoji maker. So much fun in one box!
The world of My Little Pony was big in my childhood. There were many a Christmas where Santa brought me ponies. By far my most favorite toy and I love that my own little girl is obsessed. The new My Little Pony item for the season is the My Little Pony Styling Pony. Girls can comb, brush, braid and style this larger (12 inches tall) than normal pony. Hours of creative fun in one gift!
What kid doesn’t love to build paper airplanes? Okay many adults do too! We build paper planes with our kids and then see whose plane can go the farthest. With the SkyPaper Paper Plane Launcher your planes fly even farther. Up to 100 feet! Our planes never went that far before. The launcher set also comes with paper airplane patterns that make folding faster. Now that’s a great way to learn how to fold the best airplane!
Here’s a hot holiday item that is also BRAND NEW. Girls love to collect things and trade with their friends. It seems that has been the holiday trend for the last several years. In walks… Gift ‘Ems! This is the newest way to collect but these miniature figures are also educational. The focus is on faces and places around the world. Open the gift and explore a whole new imaginative world!
The oldest kid of our house is all about Skylanders. He has been introducing his siblings to this world and it’s bonding time. Sure the younger ones aren’t as good at the games as he is but they have fun together. The newest addition to the Skylanders line is Skylanders Imaginators. Now this is something else. You can design your very own Skylander character. Kids everywhere will love this type of interaction with a video game. This year is all about imagination and this definitely makes the top kids toys list!
Our kids love going to the mall for the simple fact of getting to see Build-A-Bear. They love that store and getting to build a new friend. We’ve discovered that Build-A-Bear is also the place to go for all your holiday friends. These aren’t just gifts. They become holiday decorations, too! What’s more is the entire fleet of these adorable deer are part of the Merry Mission. This holiday season Build-A-Bear has joined forces with Boys & Girls Club of America to help youth reach their goals.
