1. A Galactic Snackin' Grogu that'll make your Star Wars-loving kiddo scream "OMG BABY YODAAAA!" Or at least that's how I'd react to seeing this cutie under the tree.

amazon.com

This toy is freakin' adorable and I cannot take it. Grogu has motorized movements, reacts to the various snacks he's offered, will reach to be picked up (oh, my heart) and can mimic channeling The Force. This toy is recommended for kids ages 4 and up.

Promising review: "Cuteness overload! This is the absolute most adorable Grogu toy made so far. His eyes, ears, mouth, and sounds are so lifelike that it's just wild. Grogu comes with a cookie, bowl of soup, spoon, and his favorite toy ever, the little knob from the Razor Crest. He reacts differently to every one of his accessories and when he doesn't have an item in his hands, he will probably ask you to pick him up for a hug. Batteries are easy to put in and then this little guy is ready to go! All in all this little Grogu will make people of all ages smile. Just seeing him and hearing his little sounds, is sure to warm any heart." —Mariofan105

2. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which will turn your home into a real-life race course for Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the classic gang.

Your kiddo will need a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite to play this game — and it's rated for ages "E for everyone." Essentially, this game uses artificial intelligence (and an actual remote car with a camera attached to it) to bring the classic game of Mario Kart to life in your home. I've personally tried it out and it is unbelievably cool and very fun. You can change the tracks over and over for new experiences each time. My favorite part is that when you run the race on your Nintendo Switch you actually feel like you're watching Luigi race through YOUR home!

Promising review: "Awesome toy, kids will love it. Great quality and use, one of the far coolest Nintendo has made." —Luigi

Shipping info: Most packages will deliver within one to two days of the estimated delivery date. If you are a Red Card member you will receive free two-day shipping. Check out details on all holiday shipping information here.

Get it from Target for $59.99.

3. A classic Tamagotchi they've probably heard you reminiscing about since the beginning of time — now your own offspring can learn about the delight and stress of keeping a virtual pet alive.

There's also a super cool R2-D2 version available!

Promising review: "My 11-year-old daughter came to me one day and asked me for a Tamagotchi for her upcoming birthday. I thought, 'Wow that sounds SO familiar!!' Sure enough, it was the same thing from when we were in high school — the little gigapet that needs constant care and beeps constantly. LOL! It’s a nice blast from the past!" —Amy W.C.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 37 styles).

4. A Lego BrickHeadz Nutcracker Building Kit would be a great stocking stuffer for the tiny builder in your life. It has a mouth that actually moves and is quite on theme with the season, if I do say so myself.

5. A four-pack of Bluey figures that'll cement your status as one of the greatest gift-givers of all time — I don't know a single kiddo who doesn't adore this show.

Promising review: "My almost 3-year-old is obsessed with Bluey, and I kinda am too! It's an adorable show, and actually humorous, so I don't mind him wanting to watch it all day every day. So when I saw these figures available I had to snatch them up for him! I gave them to him for Easter, and he hasn't put them down since! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Great quality, great price, and fast shipping!" —Amanda Eboli

6. A Baby Shark cube plushie you may initially regret buying (it sings the song over and over) but will change your mind once you see how excited your tyke gets each time they play with it.

Amazon, amazon.com

This toy is recommended for kids ages 2 and up.

Promising review: "I ordered this for my 14-month-old and it’s the perfect size! (think softball sizes). Plays a good portion of the baby shark song. Very easy to press unlike other singing stuffed animals. It’s going to be a stocking stuffer although he grabbed this out of the box first. 😂 Worth the $7.99." —LOlive

7. A Stomp Rocket, capable of launching up to 200 feet, to keep your kids busy and remind them to *literally* shoot for the stars.

The set comes with a stomp launcher and four foam rockets. It's recommended for ages 5 and up.

Promising review: "Bought for my 3-year-old nephew but became great outdoor fun for the whole family. 3-year-old loved it and could stomp and jump on the launcher without problem, sending the 'rocket' into the sky about 20 feet. The adults didn't hold back after a few trials and the toy held up to the heavy feet and launched the rockets extremely high, not 200 feet, but more like 75–100. Very fun trying to catch them on their way down too! Soft nerf and lightweight plastic made the toy safe and fun." —Brandy

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Promising review: "Played this with my 13-year-old niece and I didn’t think she was going to let me stop! She loved this and I enjoyed it as well. Ya think ya know a lot about Pixar movies until ya have to name the characters! Haha fun game." —Katrina Boyd

It's a super popular blind box–styled toy with five mystery compartments that open up to reveal mini replicas of your favorite brands (think Heinz ketchup, Bagel Bites, and more!).

Amazon, amazon.com

This toy is recommended for kids ages 3 and up.

Promising review: "My 8-year-old daughter has loved collecting Mini Brands and was really excited for Series 2! She noted how one of the packages looked so real that they even had a word search on it. The detail is awesome and they are so fun to collect! She really wants to get some rare ones so hopefully we’ll find them soon!" —Heidi M.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Purchased this for my niece as a Christmas gift. She loves it! Screams whenever anyone tries to put it away or take her off it haha!" —Elizabeth

13. A crystal-growing kit any wannabe scientist will be blown away by — I mean, look at the results! They'll have the best time ever watching their majestic crystals grow before repurposing them into a night-light.

amazon.com

The kit comes with materials to grow crystals in eight colors, four silicone growing chambers, and a light display for five crystals. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Promising review: "This kit takes a bit of effort but WOW the results are stunning! I bought this for my 6-year-old daughter for Christmas. We set up the first four crystals per the directions and let them sit for 10 days. We had fun looking each day to see how big they were. After they were done, I removed the crust from the edges of the cup, poured off the liquid, and eased the crystal out of the cup. They came out easily. To get the seed rock out, I used a razor blade, went around the edges and flaked off the crystal growth to expose the edges, then used the corner of the blade to pop the rock out. I was veeeery careful and all four crystals came out intact! It takes patience but totally worth it, the resulting night-light is a treasure she will probably keep for life." —Gapeach

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available with six crystals or eight crystals).

14. A Magna-Tiles set that'll surely be a big hit with any budding architect. They can use it to build all kinds of cool 3D structures, then knock 'em down and start again the next day.

Amazon

The set comes with translucent magnetic pieces to build 3D creations all day. Recommended for ages 3 and up.

Promising review: "I have a 4-year-old daughter who likes to build things and I want to encourage that. One review recommended Magna-Tiles, so I took a shot in the dark and got these. They were an instant hit! I never could imagine my kids would have liked a toy this simple. My daughter doesn't have the greatest fine motor skills so building toys that need tools would have been frustrating for her. With Magna-Tiles, you just hold pieces next to each other and they snap together! They have great balance, too. She's made pretty skinny 3D towers out of triangles and they get pretty high before they fall apart. Now I just have to get a bigger set to add on! :D Try these, you'll love them!" —Green

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $49.95 for a 32-piece set or $119.95 for a 100-piece set.

15. A Radio Flyer Play and Fold Climber that won't take up much space in your garage (it folds away!) and will keep your tykes entertained for hours. You're about to impress all the other parents on your block, that's for sure.

Amazon

This adorable toy is recommended for kids ages 2–5 years old.

Promising review: "This is a great portable option that can be collapsed fairly easily. We have this set up indoors currently and it’s nice having a little climbing and sliding structure indoors for rainy days. This took about 30 minutes to assemble so fairly easy and directions were easy to follow. I’d say this is good for age 3.5 and under maybe 3 and under if you have a taller kiddo. Lots of fun! Great reliable brand." —Amy

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available as a pirate ship or a castle).

16. A basic Lego set and The Lego Ideas Book to jump-start any tyke's love of this iconic building block — the set will provide all they need to create the fun ideas found in the book. Win-win.

Amazon

The set comes with 790 pieces, including 33 different colored bricks, and is recommended for ages 4 and up.

Promising review: "My 5-year-old grandson is really into Legos so I bought this for him for Christmas along with the Lego Ideas Book and he has spent soooo many hours sitting at his table creating new Lego things. The large classic brick box has a lot of pieces to it and can be used in many, many different ways." —J. Stroh

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon: the set for $37.99 and the book for $15.99.

17. A durable digital camera, because they're definitely bored of being the one in front of the camera all the time. This will let them switch places with you for once and snap some cool pics of you instead.

Amazon

The Kidizoom is a real digital camera that has photo and video capabilities, as well as a wealth of filters and games! It has 256 MB of built-in memory that is expandable with a MicroSD. Recommended for ages 3–9. Don't forget the batteries!

Promising review: "I got this camera for my 5-year-old as a birthday gift and he LOVES it. It's so much fun. You can take 'selfies' and it has fun stickers and filters (kind of similar to Snapchat). It also has games on it, so when he's not taking pictures, he is still getting used to the buttons by playing the games. It really helps kids get familiar with cameras and exploring creativity. I would highly recommend this for any kid! I'm planning on purchasing more for my other kids." —StoneySmurf

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $61.70+ (available in three colors).

18. A unicorn slime kit with over 23,000 5-star reviews that essentially prove kids and parents alike are big fans. Glitter, foam beads, and a gloopy substance — what could go wrong?!

The kit comes with everything they'll need to make their own slime! It's recommended for kids ages 7 and up.

Promising review: "This is the best slime kit I’ve come across. I saw it last minute before my daughter’s birthday (11) and thought I’d get it as an add-on to her presents. It ended up being her favorite gift! Her brother (8) joined in and made slime with her and she still has enough to make more of all types." —Elizabeth & Rick

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

19. A Disney Princess dress-up trunk filled with tiaras, dresses, and accessories that'll take playtime to the next level. I hope you're prepared to channel your inner Cinderella when the time comes.

Amazon

The keepsake storage trunk includes four tops, three skirts, three bracelets, three rings, necklace, sticker sheet, choker, three headbands and a tiara. The costumes fit sizes 4–6x. Recommended for ages 3 and up.

Promising review: "This is a great dress up set. As such, I had little expectation that the material quality would be that of the one dress I purchased for my niece that cost as much, alone, for this entire trunk. Now that we have expectations addressed, let's talk about what you get. There's four outfits that are separate tops and skirts so they can dress up as the character or potentially mix and match. There are accessories by way of bracelets, headbands, and rings. My niece loved it. She started trying it out immediately and I kept my award for best uncle and all around best gifter." —oldwalt

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

20. Pokémon 25th Anniversary Celebrations Elite Trainer Box for the kiddo who spends hours upon hours watching Pokémon card unboxing videos. I may not understand, but children and '90s kids-turned-adults seem to be absolutely enamored by the suspense of it all.

The box includes: 10 Pokémon TCG: Celebrations four-card booster packs, five additional Pokémon TCG booster packs, one special foil card featuring Greninja, 65 card sleeves featuring the Pokémon 25 logo and lightning tail design, 45 Pokémon TCG Energy cards, a player’s guide to the Celebrations expansion, and a Pokémon TCG rulebook.

21. A Crayola light-up tracing pad, perfect for young artists who want to learn how to draw their favorite characters but aren't quite skilled enough to freehand them.

Amazon

The tracing pad comes with the light-up board, 10 tracing sheets, 10 blank sheets, a graphite pencil, and 12 short colored pencils. Recommended for ages 6 and up. Don't forget the AA batteries!

Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for our 6-year-old. Our son immediately used the tracing pad as soon as he opened the box. As a mom who cannot draw, this item comes very handy because I don't have to trace on my computer, LOL. Now my son can do his own tracing. It came with drawings that he actually traced and choices of clothes and accessories to draw on the character. This tracing pad is absolutely not just for the kids but also for the kid at heart." —Samproad11

Promising review: "Great gift for kids of all ages. My 8-year-old loved getting this for Christmas! She played with it all day while more expensive gifts sat under the tree...LOL. We built so many different structures and most of them she did on her own. Will probably buy a second one to expand her designs and creative thinking. I recommend highly!" —awalker

amazon.com, amazon.com

This toy is recommended for kids ages 3 and up.

Promising review: "My only issue is it is so much fun, that my 3-year-old nephew cries when I make him stop playing on it! He loves it so much i have to bring it in every night and put it in his room. One of the best purchases I have ever made and at a great price." —Rubi

Recommended for ages 6–10.

Promising review: "Bought this for my son's 9th birthday and it is a huge hit! It is easy for him to switch between pickaxe and sword, and there are some soft edges so he can bang it around and not hurt anything. He has been playing with it nonstop since I gave it to him, and even keeps it with him in bed at night! Great product!" —stephmowery

It also has a built-in customizable clock and nightlight. It is recommended for kids ages 3–8. The starter pack comes with the audio player (obviously) and seven exciting cards. However, you can continue to buy other fun cards like this Pixar set filled with stories from their favorite characters.

Promising review: "I honestly can’t say when I’ve last been as impressed with a device as I am this one. My husband is an engineer and usually picky with his praise, but he can’t stop talking about how amazing our new Yoto is. Our almost 4-year-old is able to navigate through all of the different features with little help from us. She listens to either stories before bed, or the built in radio station. Then once she’s tired she flips it over and uses the night light. If she ever forgets we can just control things through the app without having to go into her room. I can see this aging really well as she grows, as many of the books are ones that I read well into my youth." —WS

This toy is ideal for kids 8 and up.

Promising review: "My kids love this flying glow ball! It’s easy to control, just keep your hand underneath and it will hover right over. I would only use indoors as we took outside and it flew over our neighbor’s fence! A little bit of wind is not good for this toy! Luckily we got it back, however learned our lesson to keep inside. It looks beautiful when it’s flying as the colors illuminate on the ceiling! Very cool in the dark too! Great price and a lot of fun!" —Brian "SpookYouLaterz" Lubecki

30. A Color Reveal Barbie I honestly would consider buying for myself — it's *that* cool. Your little one will dip the doll (and its various accessories) into water and watch as she magically changes color!

Amazon

This Barbie set comes with four mystery bags of accessories in addition to the doll — all of which change color! This toy is recommended for kids ages 3 and up.

Promising review: "A big hit with my daughter!! The initial reveal is so great and vibrant with the doll diving into the water and it gets so murky you can’t see the doll until she pops out of the water. Very satisfying. She loves that it comes with a wig for the doll and that the dolls plastic head hair color changes in water. All around great gift." —Gia Ross

31. A Razor scooter to remind you of your own childhood as you watch your kiddo scoot around for hours.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

I got reacquainted with a Razor scooter a few years ago (see above) and have been smiling ever since — seriously. I'm very accident-prone so pretty much everyone in my life begged me not to get on this bad boy, but I was determined to relive the fun of my childhood. Mission accomplished — it's SO fun. The bigger wheels make for a smooth ride and, honestly, it was quite a workout! I'd suggested snagging a helmet for your little one.

Promising review: "My 10-year-old daughter got an electric scooter for Christmas last year. This year she wanted a manual one. We live in New England. Have had a relatively mild winter so far, but she has kept the scooter inside. All three of my kids ride it in circles around our first floor! (My oldest is 16.5!) BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER! It was very inexpensive, but its rugged. Well made. Can't believe they are all getting so much use/fun out of such a simple toy. I will actually miss it when they have to take it outside. (Once it goes outside, it stays outside!) GREAT scooter!!" —Heather Adamson
