With Christmas just days away I’m really starting to feel the time crunch, which makes me turn to Amazon, for some stress-free, crowd-free, kid-free last minute shopping. I could list all of the reasons why I love Amazon, but today we’re here to talk about just one of those reasons- the Mom Picks Holiday Gift List. There is a wide variety of toys for all ages, including an assortment of classics and, of-course some of the latest high tech toys. You can find quiet toys, loud toys and toys with the most beloved children’s characters. As a mom myself, I really appreciate the inclusion of many great educational activities with several STEM-focused toys. Your little ones will be having so much fun they won’t even know they are learning! The best part is that you can confidently shop from this list for your favorite kids because the toys are chosen by moms and mom knows best, right?
