The Best Gifts from Amazon’s Holiday Toy List

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!

    This is a great list! I loved American Girls growing up and I am so excited my daughter asked for a Wellie Wisher this year! They are less expensive and a little smaller so great for the 4-8 year olds that are still a little young for the dolls but too old for the bitty babies.

    Thanks Jennifer! The American Girl Wellie Wishers would be a great addition to our list. Here’s a link in case anyone wants to check them out on Amazon. http://amzn.to/2gqEQar
