    Promising review: "My son and I are both impressed with the Hot Wheels Sky Crash Tower. It's larger than you'd think and very easy to put together. Be careful with the stickers as they do not move once you place them! My son plays with the track daily and loves trying to make his cars crash in mid air. The track is great and keeps the cars going without going off the track. My only disappointment is that it comes with one car, not two. So if you want to experience the crash make sure you have another car! Highly recommend for hours of entertainment!" –TiffanyAmber

She carries the doll and the accessories everywhere, and we pretend me or one of the other kids is sick, and my daughter checks our ears with the tools in the doctor bag. And every time the hand-washing song comes on, we all dance and sing along. This doll is just great!" –AntisocialButterfly

    Promising review: "I got this item about a week ago now. My 6-year-old instantly fell in love. It's loud, and it's the perfect size for her to tote around everywhere as her new 'pet.' She slept with it the first couple nights before making it a bed in a basket next to her bed. She keeps talking about how the tongue feels and honestly, just thinks it is such a cool toy." –ThreeLittleLadies

    Promising review: "I bought this for my son's first birthday and he loved it! He was up and walking and playing with it as soon as I set it up. What I love about it is that the back wheels have a speed adjustment with two speeds. I wasn't sure if he would be able to use it without hurting himself but he surprised us by walking it around. I love all the cute songs and buttons on it. Very educational also." –Amber

    Promising review: "Children can play with their utensils and potholders included. It is very sturdy. Your children can play for hours with all the interactive appliances. The opening refrigerator, freezer and microwave makes for fun play as well as extra storage. The oven knobs twist and turn while making a fun noise. The sink is also removable for easy wipe out and clean up. The clock on the side of the kitchen has hands that can move, and the phone also comes off the holder to be played with. I have to say I am 100% satisfied with this kitchen. Very impressed momma. The directions were very clear as well. They are step by step and properly labeled for easy and fast assembling." –cheyenne

    It also comes with exclusive Chase and T. rex dinosaur action figures.

    Promising review: "My 4- and 5-year old loved this toy! The net launcher was a huge hit as well as that the vehicle could carry the T. rex (and a few other of their much smaller dinos). And the fact that this was all terrain and worked in our yard and in the driveway was a huge win and really made this toy stand out compared to others. We found the toy easy to use for young ones and really provided a lot of entertainment for my dino and Paw Patrol-loving two kids!" –Melanie

    Price: $49.99 (originally $59)

    16. A Kinetic Sand kit to mix, shape, and mold into fun shapes and designs. Bonus for parents: the sand is designed to stay together, so that means they won't be cleaning up grains and grains of sand from now until eternity.

    Promising review: "I bought this mainly for my 7-year-old who has ADHD. I also have a 2-year-old son who absolutely loves Play Doh and slime, two things I don't like in the house because it's very hard to get out of fabric! This however, cleans up so easily and keeps my daughter calm. She will actually sit for a half hour or more at a time and just play with it. This kit is awesome and has so many different tools which has to be the best part. I also like that it came with two colors even tho they were mixed together and turned into just purple within the first two days. Highly recommend." –Jamie

    Price: $14.88 (originally $19.97)

    17. A Queen Elsa doll that sings the hit song "Show Yourself" from Disney's Frozen 2. Get your camera ready to get a video of your little one singing along with Elsa.

    Promising review: "My daughter loves her Magic In Motion Queen Elsa Doll. Her mouth moves along with the words in the song. Her face feels soft and smooth. Her shoes easily go on and off without the worry of them falling off and getting lost. Her dress is also very soft and sparkly. The doll has many great features. My daughter loves to play and sing along with her." –WalmartCustomer

    Price: $44.84 (originally $59.99)

    Promising review: "I chose this doll for my niece and she absolutely adores her. She's a gorgeous doll and my niece likes that it looks like her. My life dolls have a great line of products. These dolls are great and are inexpensive compared with other dolls but have the same quality. They have lasted for years through different kids in my family and are always loved! They make great gifts for your children's friends so they can dress them in matching outfits as well!" –Frugalfindings

    Price: $24.88 (available in three looks)

    20. A Mrs. Potato Head toy for Toy Story fans who have been begging to play with the toys they see on screen. Just like in the movie, you can store all of her accessories right inside her potato body!


    Promising review: "My 2-year-old loves this classic toy. She had the original Mr. Potato Head so this was a no-brainer. The pieces are a little tight so they are tough for her to insert and remove. As she gets bigger and stronger, it shouldn't be a problem. I would definitely recommend." –Kevin

    Price: $5 (originally $6.88)

    21. A Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn smart stages chair that helps your little one learn their ABCs, colors, shapes, and more. And it plays over 50 songs, tunes, and phrases.


    Promising review: "My great-grandaughter had her 1st birthday last Monday and I purchased this for her. She just loves it. I have a picture of her sitting on it, she likes to hide things under the seat and she spends many hours researching all the great things it can do. There are instructions to adjust the workings for the age of the child so as she grows older it can be advanced for her. This is a wonderful product, made very durable and so much fun for her. Her Dad and Mom are very happy with this gift!" –Barbie

    Price: $20 (originally $35, available in two colors)

    22. A Little Tikes adjustable basketball hoop so they can practice their jump shot and slam dunks. Never too early to start training for the big leagues!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 4-year-old granddaughter for her birthday. She loves it! And it adjusts so the older kids can play too. It's heavy duty but easy to move. It's also super easy to adjust from one size to another. We are very happy and it's well worth the price." –vicki

    Price: $39.86 (originally $49.99)

    23. A Lego kit that depicts the scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Umbridge confronts Grawp the Giant in the Forbidden Forest. If you have a diehard Potterhead on your holiday list, this 253-piece Lego set will be an absolute hit.

    Promising review: "I got this for a daughter of a friend. The daughter (8) was so excited to have generic blocks that could be used anywhere, yet had enough variety to do really interesting things. She also liked not having all 'girl' colors. She didn't pause playing/building with them for a couple of weeks!" –Ginger

    Price: $43.75 (originally $59.99)

    25. A wooden train set and table with 100 (!!) accessories so your kid can let their imagination run wild as they move little vehicles around the tracks.

    Promising review: "My son absolutely loves his new train set and my wife loves the huge storage space the trundle provides. My son is a bit on the young side (3rd birthday present) for this set as his little arms can't reach the inner track but has no problems playing with the outer tracks and moving the trains on the upper level of the double decker bridge so he will have many years of enjoyment as he grows into it. It's also great that it is Thomas and Friends compatible as he has a bunch of Thomas and his friends' trains that he can use." –Tony

    Price: $139.99 (originally $239.99)

    26. A Pogo Hopper with a soft foam base that squeaks as they hop around. You'll get just as much joy out of this toy as you watch them try to hop higher and higher.

    Promising review: "Bought a regular pogo stick for my oldest and my little guy wanted to do it so bad so bought him his own that's a bit safer for him. He loves it. Took a couple tries but he's got it now and jumping all over the place. Very well made and cute. Packaging was very nice as well. We are both happy with my purchase!" –Butterflyjo

    Price: $12.88 (available in two colors)

    27. A Disney Princess wooden play castle that will seriously impress any kid who watches Disney movies on repeat. It stands over 5 feet tall, it comes with a 10-piece furniture set, and they can customize the rooms thanks to themed backgrounds they can place in the castle.


    Promising review: "My daughter is going to scream when she sees it on her birthday. It took me about three and a half hours to build. I highly recommend also using wood glue and a drill at slow speed. The hardest part was the stair case and elevator. Other than that, it's beautiful and the inner little girl in me is screaming to play with the doll house also. This is truly amazing." –darlene

    Price: $145.99 (originally $190.53)

    28. A pony toy that they can walk with, bounce on, or ride across the living room. No matter how they decide to play with it, they'll be delighted by all the sounds and lights the pony emits!


    Promising review: "Fun bouncing horse for baby. They're able to ride on the horse or can learn to push and walk with the horse. The seat really bounces; the seat is made out of an exercise ball. Baby loves to just bounce on the seat. There are cute little apple toys on the front of the horses chest and a spin roll wheel on the middle back of the horse head that lights up and spins with music. And it's so easy to assemble it all together." –dmg0385

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

    29. An LOL! Surprise doll with brightly colored hair your child will love brushing and styling. It also comes with lots of surprise accessories they'll have fun discovering when they open the case.

    Promising review: "My son got this a few weeks ago. Wish I got a picture of his face when he opened it. He's obsessed with Mario! It has different sensors that make different sounds and phrases. You can pose him. Very well made. This is his new favorite toy! He brings him everywhere!" –Mhelcl7

    Price: $44.99 (originally $49.99)

    31. And finally, a hoverboard with neon lights on the bottom that you might have just as much fun riding down the block as they do. Make sure they're wearing a helmet when they ride this!

    kid sitting on a couch with a lit up hoverboard on his feet

    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this Razor Black Label Hovertrax! Not only was I impressed, my husband and kids were too! I took it out of the box, and it was charged and ready to go. I love how it has the smart balancing feature which makes it so much easier to use than older versions. I also love how it comes with the different colors of grip tape so you can switch it up! The flashing lights on the board & the wheels are amazing! They go from green, to red, to blue to pink and more. Pretty flashy which is pretty cool. My son was literally riding this like a pro after a mere 10 minutes or so. I love the hoverboard, love all the features and would indeed recommend." –Chellester

    Price: $148 (available in two colors)
