Looking for holiday gifts for kids? I’ve rounded up great gifts for kids of all ages.Each year shoppers go crazy for that one “hot” toy. I admit I have stood in long line a time or two to get my hands on that must have toy on my kids' wish list but when it comes to the battle of must have toys…I ALWAYS GET THE TOYNow moi being moi has certain things that I look for when selecting toys for kids.
It’s gotta be fun
It must be safe
It’s gotta be different
It's gotta promote imaginative play
Here are our Top 10 Picks for 20171. Barbie ANYTHING. 2. Hot Wheels or Matchbox ANYTHING3. Scooby Doo Mystery Park Game4. Paw Patrol5. FurReal Roarin’ Ivory the Playful Tiger Pet6. Sun Tail Mermaid Tails7. Women of NASA Legos8. Mayka Toy Block Tape9. Hatchimals Surprise10. Wow Wee Fingerlings Interactive Toys ESPECIALLY the Baby MonkeyBarbie earns a spot on my list every year because we grew up together. She’s a reminder you can be anything you want to be. LIke Barbie, kids can be a babysitter, a vet, a dentist, a mommy, a teacher, a doctor, a scientist, she owns a farm, a bakery, and I think she’s even been president. There are no limits to our dreams.Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars and playsets are always on our Christmas wish list. Older family members have some of their cars from their childhood. My uncle went from playing with Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars to collecting them. I remember when my brother was a little kid and he used to line his cars up in perfect order. I mean “parallel park” his cars. He still has a few of his favorite cars from his childhood. Our car collection has grown so much over the years and I'm proud to say I own my dream car. Granted it's a miniature, it's still mine and I own it. The Scooby Doo Mystery Park Game is a great game for the entire family. It’s for ages 4-up so that means even the preschoolers can get in on the family fun. A great game for the grandparents to play and share their memories of Scooby Doo from back in the day.Paw Patrol is one of the littlest ones favorites shows. She watches the show daily and I make sure to have her favorite Paw Patrol DVDs on deck whenever she visits. This year Build A Bear has a Paw Patrol Plush - a great gift idea for fans of the Nickelodeon series. The Paw Patrol playsets would also make great gifts for toddlers and preschoolers.The FurReal craze is still going and this year’s must have toy is the FurReal Roarin’ Ivory the Playful Tiger Pet. An overload of cute.Bring the magic of a mermaid to your home with Sun Tail Mermaid Tails and Shark Fins. Sun Tail Mermaid Tails would make a great gift.
Each mermaid tail is made of a polyester spandex blend designed to fit comfortably and snug.
Sun Tail Mermaid Tails offers a variety of mermaid tails, shark fins and even sea monster mermaid tails and monofins. My niece loves mermaids and loves her Sun Tail Mermaid Tail. Her mom phoned to tell me she glanced over to see my niece doing her homework and occasionally her mermaid tail would flutter kick. She loves her mermaid tail and can't wait for the family winter vacation so she can go swimming. Legos are another toy that’s always on our list and the limited release of the Women of NASA Lego Set is the must have Lego set of 2017. The set went on sale in early November and quickly sold out only to reappear online at dramatically increased prices.
Kudos to Amazon for making a few sets available at the original price of $24.99. Hurry though, there is a limit of 1 per person. Another gift for Lego lovers is the Mayka Toy Block Tape. Take your blocks to a whole ‘nother level with this tape. The tape can be cut and shaped to enhance block play. Hatchimals were the hard to find toy last year and this year Hatchimals Surprise is the must have Hatchimal. The surprise is it's TWINS! Woohoo! Oh I wish my twins were little again, I would so get this for them. Have you seen the Wow Wee Fingerlings Interactive Toys ESPECIALLY the Baby Monkey. Priced at $15 in stores but upwards of $50 online, this is another toy topping wish lists everywhere. There are sloths and unicorn Fingerlings but the baby monkey is one of the must have toys for 2017. There you have it. Our top 10 picks for kids... and mermaids too.
