1. An interactive The Floor is Lava game that will get them up and moving — because there's nothing better than a gift that gets all their energy out.
3. A limited-edition holiday Barbie with a gorgeous yellow dress that even Belle would be jealous of.
4. A Harry Potter Lego advent calendar so they can open magical surprises throughout the month of December. All aspiring Hogwarts wizards — even Slytherins —will get a kick out of the holiday-themed Yule Ball scene.
5. A Super Mario Lego set that lets them bring their favorite video game series to life. The battery-powered Mario figure can actually interact with the set, changing facial expressions and spewing his famous catchphrases while moving around the custom-built level.
6. A Nintendo Switch console with an adorable Animal Crossing theme for the kids who have spent the majority of 2020 tending to their virtual island. Nintendo Switch consoles became almost impossible to find earlier this year, so we recommend getting your hands on one while you can.
7. Or the Nintendo Switch Lite if they only care about handheld gaming. This one doesn't connect to your TV, but it comes in fun colors and is $100 less than the original version.
9. A Lego Minecraft Zombie Cave set, because even if you're not sure what a Minecraft is, you can be sure basically every kid is obsessed with it.
10. A Gotta Go Flamingo that's perfect for the child with a weird sense of humor. It's bound to be at least No. 2 on their wish list.
11. A Scooby Doo Mystery Machine playset for all the meddling kids on your list. They'll get an interactive version of the iconic van, plus figures of all five main characters.
12. A set of L.O.L. Surprise OMG Remix dolls because the L.O.L. craze is still going strong. They'll get eight dolls in the set, each with their own musical instrument.
13. And an L.O.L. Clubhouse so their collection of dolls will have a place to hang out. The set can be arranged in different ways, so they can basically build a new playset every time they come back to it.
15. A Paw Patrol playset so they can bring their favorite show to life. Any toy involving these beloved doggos is bound to be a hit, but this motorized vehicle with a moving T-rex is especially popular this year.
16. A unicorn slime kit with over 12,000 positive reviews — because this is one viral trend that isn't going away any time soon.
18. A Barbie Color Reveal set that's already sold out at a few retailers. The dolls transform when placed in water and come with 36 surprise accessories.
19. A Fortnite playset for the few times they actually put down the controller and want to play with something else.
