Remember the excitement of flipping through your favorite toy catalogue, circling items you were wishing for in hopes that Santa (and your parents) would make those wishes come true? Our kids will probably never flip through an old-fashioned catalogue, and honestly, scrolling through Amazon’s Holiday Toy List is so much better!
The Amazon Holiday Toy List is organized by Parent Picks, Kid Picks and Categories, so parents, gift-givers, and even kids can quickly and easily find awesome toys, games and activities to add to their lists!
With so many amazing toys on the list, we thought we’d make your holiday shopping a little easier by choosing a few favorites for kids in different age groups. We’ve searched for toys that aren’t just fun, but that are designed to teach and grow with your child–you might even have some fun playing with them too!
Best Toys for Children Ages 0-3 Years

My daughter received this colorful wooden baking set when she was one and a half, and it remains one of her most loved toys (she’s 4 now!).

Toddlers, start your engines! This Radio Flyer Racer is designed to grow with your child, transitioning from adult driven, to adult correcting, and finally, child driven. The new 2018 model features an improved remote control with quicker response time, giving parents better steering and control.
