1. Walkie Talkies*: Best gift ever, OVER! I said it last year, and I’ll shout it again – these walkie-talkies are pure genius. From epic hide-and-seek sessions to imaginative play and adventures with older siblings or parents, the fun never ends. Plus, if you’re gearing up for a winter vacay, throw them in your bag! Perfect for letting the kids roam around the resort.
2. Kids Digital Camera: It’s always a sweet surprise seeing a little one totally into snapping pics and capturing memories. This Kid’s Digital Camera is super budget-friendly and a breeze for anyone to use. It also comes in a variety of styles – even a unicorn.
3. Petite Magnetic Dress-Up Set: A great to-go gift that packs well and lets kids have fun creating stories based on the dress-up changes. Astronauts, pilots, and pirates galore.
4. Name Crayons*: Always a hit with the artsy crowd! Customizing the crayons with their name or nicknames is just plain cool.
5. Learn to Draw Projector: I still remember learning to draw—holding pics up to the light, crossing my fingers to trace before my arm gave out, haha! But hey, times have changed, and now with this Learn to Draw Projector, your budding artist can practice like a pro with way less arm workout.
6. Osmo*: We own and love Osmo. Gray plays with the coding set and it has surprisingly grown with him. Osmo has held a solid grip on the Best Sellers list for more than two years now.
7. Glow In The Dark Fort Building Kit: The best part about this fort is the quick set up and take down. Then you turn off the lights and let them mission impossible till they tire out.
8. Squigz Starter Set*: Squigz are seriously one-of-a-kind toys. The play setup is super simple, yet kids have a blast crafting all sorts of combos and setups.
9. Storybook Flashlight Projector: Now this is a great one that is really for the whole family. Get ready for bed or just some downtown with everyone cozied up and let the Storybook Flashlight Projector take you on an adventure.
10. LCD Doodle Board: The ideal gift for a kindergarten whirlwind! Easy to stash in the car, toss in a bag for trips, or whip out during downtime between activities.
11. Light Up Dance Mat*: I’m all in for this! A Light Up Dance Mat means daily dance parties, play date dance parties, and let’s get the wiggles out before bed dance parties.
12. Personalized I Can Change the World Book*: Have your little one get lost in an adventure that features them changing the world.
13. Sprinkle Kids Baking Set: Complete with everything you need for your kindergartener to be an aspiring baker. We own the kid knives from this brand and love them.
14. Interactive Talking US Map: I find this gift to be so cool. It really exposes kids to geography at a young age and with the interactive features that allow them to learn so much more than just seeing a map.
15. Yeti Kids Cup*: Another top pick that brings joy to kids and moms alike. Yeti is an awesome brand, and their cups can handle the wild lifestyle of kindergarteners like champs.
16. Dueling Stomp Rocket Set: All the great features of the original Stomp Rocket and with the added plus of more than one player at a time.
17. Ninja Warrior Set*: If you have a climber or acrobat kid this one is definitely for you. Well worth the money! This makes for HOURS of fun. Here is also a lower price point option here: https://amzn.to/3rdyIJn.
