1- Magic Mixies Magical Misting Crystal Ball
Young girls and boys alike will love the magic and mystery involved in this toy. They can wave the light-up wand to cast spells and reveal the talents that their Magic Mixie has to offer. This crystal ball also features interactive games and can be used as a night light for a magical bedtime experience.
2- Tomy Toomies Hide & Squeak Eggs
A half a dozen eggs has never been so exciting. The egg carton comes with six color coded eggs that make lots of sounds. Crack open the egg to reveal a color in a variety of colors (yellow, red, purple, orange, pink, or green) and hear it squeak. When your kid is done playing, they can practice matching the shape at the bottom of the egg into the same shaped spot (think squares, triangles, and plus signs).
3- Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Servin’ Up Fun Food Truck
The Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Servin’ Up Fun Food Truck is complete with more than 20 removable toy pieces, so children will never get tired of using their imagination. The truck also plays over 125 different songs, sounds, and phrases. We recommend offering adult supervision with this toy as it is lightweight and may tip over.
4- Bluey Scavenger Hunt Game
Almost every 4-year-old knows who Bluey is, so they’ll adore this adventure scavenger hunt, where they work with other players to collect toy tokens. They can even choose to be Bluey, one of her family members or friends. Just be sure to keep track of all the small pieces that this game comes with!
5- Monopoly Junior: Marvel Spidey and His Amazing Friends Edition Board Game

6- Magna-Tiles 100-Piece Clear Colors Set
These bright and colorful building tiles allow children to not only learn shapes and colors but also try their hand at basic building skills. The possibilities are endless in this 100-piece set that’s easy to clean and fun to use. Be mindful that some shapes, like the triangles, have weaker magnets than others in the set.
7- Magical Minis Diagon Alley 3-in-1 Playset with Lights & Sounds
For the Harry Potter fan, this Diagon Alley playset has lights, sounds, and figurines that will delight any 7-year-old girl’s wizard world imagination. They’ll love creating their favorite Diagon Alley scenes with this set that features Ron and Hermione, plus three owls and accessories for Florian Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour.
8- Klutz Make Clay Charms Kit
We love this clay charms kit because it can be an activity for a group of girls or offer an individual endless design opportunity. While there is only one charm bracelet in the kit, you could easily purchase more from a craft store for a larger group of girls. This kit comes with nine colors of clay and can be used to design over 35 different charms to wear.
9- Big Bag Of Science Kit
Almost every kid has the desire to be a scientist at one point in their life, so why not tap into that curiosity with an at-home science experiment kit? This set introduces children to simple concepts from physics, chemistry, biology, and math while allowing them to conduct fun experiments with real lab tools.
10- Skillmatics Guess in 10 Marvel Card Game
This Guess in 10 card game is for the superhero-loving kids. They can play one on one or divide into teams and take turns guessing the superhero on the card through a series of questions. If they guess in 10 questions or fewer, they get to keep the card. The first player or team to earn seven cards wins the game.
11- KidKraft Uptown Espresso Play Kitchen with Phone
After testing this modern play kitchen with two toddlers, we knew it would become a staple in kids’ Christmas lists for years and years. With shelves for pots and pans, a chalkboard on the fridge, a cordless phone, and movable doors on the fridge, oven, and microwave, there is plenty for little hands to see and grab. We loved that it is big enough for kids to play together and will entertain children of multiple ages.
12- Lego Creator 3-in-1 Adorable Dogs
Lego sets are a great example of a STEM toy that spans the test of time and appeals to every age group. We love the Lego Creator series because each set comes with three builds, so kids don’t tire of the same toy quickly. This 3-in-1 kit comes with three adorable pups to build: a beagle, a pub, and a dachshund. There’s even included accessories like a leash and dog bowl to keep the fun going.
As we bring this exploration of great gifts for kids to a close, it’s with a heart full of gratitude for the moments of joy, wonder, and boundless imagination that childhood brings. Each carefully selected gift, whether it be a book that transports them to distant lands, a game that sparks laughter and camaraderie, or a toy that unlocks new realms of creativity, holds the power to shape their experiences and memories.
In the tapestry of their young lives, these gifts become more than just material possessions. They are the building blocks of cherished memories, the catalysts for learning and growth, and the tangible expressions of love and care from those who hold them dear. They are the vehicles through which children explore the world, discover their passions, and forge connections with those around them.
As you consider the perfect gift for the special child in your life, remember that it’s not just a physical object, but a bridge to their dreams and aspirations. It’s a gesture that says, “I believe in you. I celebrate who you are. I’m here to support your journey.” Whether it’s a gift for a birthday, a holiday, or just an unexpected surprise, the impact it leaves will be immeasurable.
So, as you wrap that carefully chosen present and watch their eyes light up with delight, know that you’re not just giving a gift; you’re giving a piece of their story. You’re contributing to the tapestry of their childhood, woven with threads of love, imagination, and unforgettable moments. And in years to come, they’ll look back with fondness, remembering not only the gift itself but the love and care that accompanied it.
Thank you for joining us on this journey of giving, where every great gift holds the promise of a brighter, more enriching future for the remarkable children who touch our lives. Here’s to the magic of childhood and the joy of making it truly special!
