    Promising review: "I couldn't figure out why I had the only 5-year-old boy who never wanted to play with Legos. Turns out he just needed Legos Classics!

These work out much better than all the complicated sets where you only build one thing." β€”DH

I will definitely be ordering more in the future." β€”Amanda

    20. Hairdorables for the doll-loving kid who also appreciates a good surprise. You don't know which doll you get until you open it!


    Promising review: "My daughter purchased two of these after seeing commercials on TV. I’m not typically a fan of 'unboxing/blind' trendy toys, but these little dolls are adorable. They're perfectly sized to appeal to kids who are obsessed with little toys but big enough to actually play with. She loves the surprise element of the doll and accessories. She played independently for over an hour making up stories about her dolls, switching their outfits, and posing them. The box turns into a little staging area with storage for accessories on one side and a 'closet' or doll storage area for when play is done on the other side. She wants them all now and they are definitely going on her Christmas list!!" β€”Rachel A Morgan

    Promising review: "Not saying this in a bad way, but my toddler won't stop playing with this! The moment when she wakes up at 6 am she plays with it, beep beep boom clang bang!! She evens wants to take it on car rides but I couldn't handle it...too much noise in the backseat! I mean, any toy that constantly makes the same sound over and over again will annoy me, but this one gets her attention for hours on ends. That's enough for me. If she's happy, I'm happy." β€”Jon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.89.

    23. A Skoolzy Peg Board with 30 pegs that kids can stack on top of each other to see how high they can get 'em.


    Promising review: "My son loves this toy. He has spent hours playing with it. Usually he doesn't have the patience for anything for more than 10 minutes. We have worked on sorting by colors and stacking. We've also been counting the different stacks. Each one is light and strong. The holes in the board are slightly difficult for my son to get the pegs in, but he'll get better. I would have preferred a board a little stronger than the foam, but it hasn't warped or broken yet. It'll be good to travel with." β€”Claire

All of the pieces fold up nicely into the house. My daughter spends hours playing with it. If you have a Peppa Pig fan in your house, this is a must-buy!! It's a great price too!" β€”Joshua

    Get it from Amazon for $30.98.

    25. A PJ Masks play set that includes one Catboy figure and cat car that will help bring the show to life for your little fan.

Botley provides HOURS for endless fun that does not require a computer or an app to play with!! However, I must say that I think Botley is better-suited for older kids (maybe 7 and older). Especially when it comes to programming Botley to do something other than working in line mode." β€”DPB

    Get it from Amazon for $52.64.

    Promising review: "I just bought my second one. We have one on both sides of our in-ground pool and the kids (and adults) will play 'full-court' basketball for hours. The first one we bought is over 10 years old and is still in good shape other than a little faded and the net came apart due to age and wear and tear over the years. I would definitely recommend this product. It's a great product and great price." β€”Doris from SC

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available as a basketball set, basketball set and slide, or basketball set and t-ball set).

    28. And last, but not least, the box that all the toys come in!

    Never underestimate the power of a simple box! Give your kids some markers and crayons and let them free. They can color and create whatever they want to! Basic boxes are the best.
