    1. A 12-sided fidget toy (aka a dodecagon) with gears, buttons, a joystick, switch, stress balls, and more for keeping fingers (and more importantly the mind operating those fingers) unstressed and focused.

    Promising review:¬†"Our soon-to-be 8-year-old son loves his fidget cube. He struggles with anxiety and mild ADHD and decided he wanted a calming box for his birthday. The fidget cube was one of the items we put in it and he plays with it all the time. He loves it." ‚ÄĒJennifer Moody¬†

    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 $8.99+ (available in seven colors). 

    2. A 12-pack of durable and sustainable all-natural pure-beeswax crayons that are nearly unbreakable and even come with a money-back guarantee. You better bee-lieve it!

    Amazon

    While they might not have much of a point left to them, these crayons are nearly indestructible. They don't snap if you look at them funny (like other brands).  They've lasted a long time with no end in sight (unless they get lost in a couch cushion). They started as a great way to learn colors and continued as the preferred medium for the young artist in our home.

    Promising review: "So I bought these worried about my 2-year-old potentially eating a crayon and having that toxic kind of stuff in her system. But, I really should have been more worried about my dogs eating crayons which so far they've snagged one and a half of these babies with no health problems for them after, so I'd say that's a major win. What's also fantastic about these crayons is that they are the perfect size for little hands. My daughter just loves to color with them and they color as smooth as Crayola and they're not all plastic and waxy like the crayons you get at the dollar store. So I'd definitely recommend these to anyone with a toddler, just watch for sneaky dogs. They'll gobble them up." ‚ÄĒCassandra S.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    3. A two-sided Learning Resources "Big Feelings Pineapple" so kids can learn emotions (as well as their opposites) and express their big feelings (and little ones too). Adult bonus to this gift? You can store all the parts inside the pineapple!

    Promising review: "We love this pineapple! It‚Äôs been a great help for us when we talk about emotions as a family. I really like the feelings poster (would love if it was a bit larger!) and I love that the pineapple has two sides. Learning Resources products are impressive! I also appreciate the online resources they have (free printables) that can be used with the pineapple. Highly recommend!" ‚ÄĒKatie Shuknecht

    4. A horn-honking, headlight-flashing remote-control race car with three removable driver figures for toddlers to get their first taste of simplified RC fun with forward and reverse functions.

    A bright red, gree, and yellow plastic race car toy with a driver being operated by a child model while supervised by an adult model
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This car is so easy to work as there are only two buttons. My 1-year-old has figured it out and giggles while it soars backward in circles. It's surprisingly off-road-able! It can climb over light blankets and other thin things on the ground. This requires batteries so don't forget them! The bright colors are fun and the music/lights are wonderful. It's a little on the loud side, but bearable. The race car driver makes noise when you click him into place and this makes my son laugh." ‚ÄĒKenneth S. Foord

    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 $20.97.

    5. A Popdarts suction cup throwing game to encourage players young and old to put down the screens and engage with some good old-fashioned family fun (and competition). There's no more satisfying sound than hearing on of these darts stick to a surface!

    Reviewer's image of green, blue, and orange Popdarts stuck to countertop
    amazon.com

    Ages 8+

    Popdarts is a small business owned and operated by two brothers who created this game to "bring friends and family of all ages together, fuel creativity, and challenge their abilities."

    Promising review: "I recently came across a video of Popdarts on social media and immediately had to get myself a set. I noticed there are multiple game sets like this on Amazon, but it‚Äôs VERY clear these are the REAL Popdarts and any other ones are fake copycats. Throwing them takes some getting used to, just like any throwing game would, so don‚Äôt get discouraged if they don‚Äôt stick the first several times! I even found that they have tutorial videos on how to throw. The quality is amazing, and they stick VERY well. I was even able to pick up a barstool with one stuck to it! 10/10 I will be buying more as they come out with expansion packs and other colors, and I will be telling all my friends about this game!" ‚ÄĒHannah Marie

    Shipping info: In stock soon. Non-Prime shipping option that will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    6. A box of 72 mini dinosaur toys because sometimes gifts aren't about the quality but the quantity, and what kid doesn't love a whole mess of thunder lizards? 

    72 plastic dinosaur toys
    Amazon

    For ages 3+

    Also great as cake toppers and party bag favors! 

    Promising review: "We were quite amazed at the variety of dinosaurs included in our pack. We expected the usual three but got quite a variety of dinosaurs and we got three or more of each. The colors were fantastic. Bright vivid blues and greens and purples. The size was relatively small, which worked well as my daughter used them as homemade Valentines for her friends. Overall, we were very happy with our purchase." ‚ÄĒH. Bowen¬†

    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 $8.98.

    7. An eight-pack of pop tube sensory toys for building letters, numbers, or any sorts of shapes creative little minds can come up with while acting as a stress reliever (what with that super-satisfying popping sound each tube makes).

    Amazon

    Promising review:¬†"These are fun for kids of all ages. My grandbabies love them because they can hold them in their baby hands. They are brightly colored and flexible. Unlikely to hurt anything. Older kids like them for the noise they make when they are stretched or closing. They create long chains (they attach to each other) and wild twisty things. All in all, a good toy for this grandma to have in her house." ‚ÄĒKaty¬†

    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 $10.97.

    8. A 43-piece Melissa & Doug "Fill & Fold" taco and tortilla set that can be played with on Tuesdays, or any other day of the week for that matter.

    Complete felt and plastic food set with toy ingredients and cooking tools
    Amazon

    For ages 3+

    Set includes a durable hard taco shell and felt tortilla with self-stick tabs, wooden food pieces (chicken, beef, shrimp, tomato, avocado, pepper, onion), a wooden knife, and a wooden hot sauce bottle.

    Promising review:¬†"My 2-year-old son LOVES this set. The salsa bottle that pours out a piece of felt is an especially big hit! Has lots of pieces that fit into their own little boxes and containers. This will occupy him for quite a while, pretending to cut and cook, but also just opening things and moving them around. If your kid likes the Dragons Love Tacos books, they'll enjoy this, comes with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and the dreaded spicy salsa. Only complaint is that it did not come in a larger box or crate that holds everything together for storage like some of the other Melissa & Doug kits do." ‚ÄĒmpat

    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 $21.99.

    9. A Clixo "Grip and Stick" pack combining origami, magnets, building blocks, and now suction cups too (!!!) for a completely new and unique way for kids to create and play.

    Clixo

    Clixo is a small business based in Brooklyn, New York, whose founder teaches toy design at UPenn.

    When I first discovered Clixo I thought, "Wow, that's something I haven't seen before. I bet these will be different than other building toys." Not only are they different, but they're super fun and satisfying to play with (that click the magnetic parts makes just sounds and feels so good). Maybe when I'm done "testing" them out, I'll actually let my kid take a shot at playing with them. And now that they have suction cups, all those creatures and creations can be put on proper display on any window!

    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.

    10. A Hape Quadrilla Super Spirals building blocks set for all the marble madness and Rube Goldberg goodness a kid could possibly enjoy.

    Amazon

    Bonus: Includes a xylophone rail that plays a tune as marbles run over it!

    Promising review: "This is the third set of these we have bought. Our family has so much fun building and exploring together with these. Our 5-year-old has started to engineer her own 'mazes.' Wonderful for coordination, logic, imagination, and teaching kids to keep trying until you get the desired outcome." ‚ÄĒJulie L.

    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 $123.99.

    11. A floating octopus interactive bath toy so little ones can learn all about cephalopods (take that, rubber ducky, you're not the one) while practicing some ring toss skills.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome toy for bath time. My baby loves it. It doesn't let any water get in it, so it doesn't get moldy inside. The material is similar to silicone, so it's easy on the baby's gums when he chews it and no risk of it hurting him when he kicks around in the tub! Totally recommend! ‚ÄĒAaron Ryan Welch

    Note: Reviewer's mention that this item is smaller than expected.

    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 $5.24.

    12. A light-up "Pick Up and Count" vacuum with bouncing balls, so you can teach your toddler to pick up after themself while making it seem like "fun."

    Amazon

    Requires four AA batteries.

    Promising review: "This has been my son's favorite toy. Every time I use our vacuum he always grabs his and vacuums with me. It's a good size compared to other toy vacuums and it picks up the little discs really well." ‚ÄĒLindsey

    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 $24.96.

    13. An eight-pack of Educational Insights Playfoam that's squishy and squashy (great for tactile stimulation) and never dries out (meaning it won't become petrified in the carpet, on the couch, or all over kids' clothing).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have bought this exact set multiple times! my kids adore it! I love all the colors. They are vibrant and fun. Also that when you mix them it doesn't act like Play-Doh and turn one yucky color. It doesn't dry out so it lasts so much longer than other products. I have compared it to many other brands from other stores, and this one seems to be the best quality. It doesn't leave that weird residue that you can never get off no matter how hard you wash. It comes easily out of hair, rugs, fabrics, and kitty's tail. I just throw it in a Ziploc bag when they are done with it. I think it is well worth the price." ‚ÄĒSam.Ramon

    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 $8.99.

    14. A "Bug Bungalow" insect-catching kit to keep all those creepy crawlies from crawling creepily all over the house as future entomologists get a chance to truly bug out with their backyard findings.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Comes with a mesh critter case, a container with magnifying lid, a set of tweezers, and a magnifier.

    Promising review: "My daughter has been enjoying catching caterpillars in random containers she finds around the house so we got her this set for her birthday. The entire set is very sturdy and fun, the tools are great to have too. The day after she got it, we rescued a fat green parsley worm from the pool and put it in here. The caterpillar quickly formed a chrysalis, but we had no idea what to expect. Sure enough, two weeks later and a beautiful swallowtail emerged! The entire family put down their screens and was oohing and ahhhing. Definitely worth the price! I expect the kids will enjoy catching more bugs and caterpillars with this set for years to come." ‚ÄĒRenee P Bosch

    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 $7.99.

    15. An 18-piece Fisher-Price "S'more Fun" campfire play set that trades all the danger of wood chopping, roaring fires, and grizzly bear attacks for kid-friendly wood accents and soft fabric. Plus no marshmallow and chocolate stains!

    Promising review: "My daughter is almost 4 and has recently gotten into building tents and forts out of pillows. We used my phone to 'make a fire' but I wanted to get her something cute she could play with instead of my phone. This fits the bill and is affordable. It‚Äôs cool that you can cut the firewood with the felt ax. The marshmallows are double-sided, one side is uncooked and the other is cooked. It‚Äôs also nice that the mat for the fire can double as a picnic pad too. The material seems very durable as well. The box that this comes in is cute and doubles for storage as well." ‚ÄĒChristie

    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 $25.38.

    16. A Plus Plus Big construction building set packed with 15 "shapes" to construct the featured animal or anything minds can imagine and little hands can, well, handle. A big bonus to this gift? All the sets work together!

    First things first, there are two different sizes of Plus Plus out there and if you've got the toddler type of kid you're going to want to make sure you go with Plus Plus Big. We have one small 15-piece set of these and they are always in the rotation of toys. Plus, they're so satisfying to put together. They don't click, they just smoothly push together. Maybe it's time to buy some more!

    Promising review: "I got these for my 3-year-old for a seven-hour flight and two weeks of road tripping and she absolutely loved them! She played with them all the time and never got bored with them!" ‚ÄĒMeetmow

    17. A lightweight but durable Ten Little recycled backpack made from (you guessed it) 100% recycled materials, with side pockets for water bottles and juice boxes and plenty of room for lunchboxes, toys, and extra clothes. Plus you can hide another present inside!

    Promising review: "I am a grown woman who, nonetheless, collects figurines of cute animals. I got the¬†Shiba¬†Inu mother and puppy set. Both figures are adorable and a great addition to my collection. I like the Schleich brand in general because their figurines are fairly realistic and whoever paints them does a competent job. I expect to keep these guys on my display shelf for a long time." ‚ÄĒLauren Votava

    21. An Educational Insights "Design & Drill" Bolt Buddies fire truck that teaches the concepts of construction and engineering with a working but still kid-safe drill. Plus the eco-friendly packaging that turns the box into a play set is a bonus gift to Mother Earth.

    Note: requires three AAA batteries (not included).

    Promising review: "This Design & Drill Bolt Buddies Fire Truck has many layers of fun. My daughter loved to attach the wheels with the drill, put stickers on the truck, drill the bolts and use the fire and water attachments in different ways, configure and seat the firefighters and dog, and use her imagination to 'drive' the truck and be a hero. The 'splash' drill bit is fun and I love that the firefighters' heads and hats are interchangeable and that they have different expressions. It's a nice-sized truck that can endure some heavy play. The box can be turned inside out to build a cool play set, and as a parent, I love that all the pieces can store inside the truck." ‚ÄĒN. Min

    Promising review: "I don't write reviews often but we have had this for two days and my boys (3 and 5) woke up at 6:30 a.m., ate breakfast, and got dressed and hustled outside on a gloomy rainy mid-February morning in Seattle to play with this. They normally fight over whose turn it is, but instead they have been taking turns and playing like civil humans for an hour already. Best toy ever, bought a second one already so they don't have to share because there's only so long siblings can go before someone throws down." ‚ÄĒRk

    23. A kids selfie camera with 32-GB SD card, 8 megapixels, 1080p video and nearly 8,000 5-star reviews on Amazon! But the real gift here is not having to surrender your phone to future social media superstars of the world. 

    Promising review: "As a professional photographer and father, my children are always making arduous attempts to get ahold of my equipment or mimic my camera use...Upon receiving the cameras, I was dazzled with the overall packaging and presentation. The box includes a MicroSD card with a full-size SD adapter, a lanyard, and a camera. I was very impressed that a MicroSD card is included. A lot of products continue to ship without them, charging an additional hefty fee...The cameras are made of plastic but are very rigid and durable. I would have liked to have seen a better display image, but for the price and demographic these cameras are marketed for; it is perfectly acceptable, and the children love them...Another notable feature of this camera is the ability to record video. This is not something you usually find in a child‚Äôs toy, especially at this price point. My children are obsessed with this function and find themselves creating stories and snippets from their day-to-day activities and adventures...I would strongly recommend this camera for children looking to explore their creativity and increase their technical skills while becoming familiar with the ergonomics and functions of basic camera operation, composition and lighting...You can tell a lot of thought and engineering went into the design of this camera." ‚ÄĒNolen Ryan¬†

    24. A built-to-last, no-lead, no-plastic, nontoxic, 14-piece magnetic wooden block set for kids to create all manner of creatures and objects that will serve as a soft introduction to all types of modern art.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The wood is of excellent quality and very nice and smooth. Magnets are strong enough but not too strong. I actually like that the magnets are not on every single side because it teaches the kids to use their brains and troubleshoot. I do wish they were a little more affordable so we could get a large set, but understand why. The quality is definitely there. Thank you for providing a fun, toxic-free toy!" ‚ÄĒDorothea Gerber

    25. A flower garden building activity set so budding horticulturists don't rip up flower beds or track dirt inside the house. Instead, kids will build dishwasher-safe bouquets that look as pretty as a flower no matter the season.

    Promising review: "My 3-year-old loves toys that are STEM related; things she can build, organize, make new things, and things she can make her 'own.' I was worried about all the small pieces and cleaning up, but the carrying case is a neat addition and helps with keeping everything organized. There are so many pieces and so many ways to make endless different flowers. It really has kept her entertained for quite some time. The only thing that is harder for little ones is cleaning up, because you have to place the flower pieces and leaf pieces strategically in order to fit everything. So, my little one tends to get frustrated because it doesn‚Äôt fit everything unless she puts it neatly and in a certain way Really helps with organizing, colors, hand-eye coordination and building!" ‚ÄĒChauntel M

    For ages 2+

    Was able to test this out with my very keen 2.5-year-old son who's taken a big-time interest in marbles and dominos but who doesn't quite have the dexterity or patience for building something too elaborate. After showing him how it works the first few times, he was ready to take over (which allowed me to take a well-earned five-minute break to sit down and stare into the unknown). The bright colors, easy-to-handle pieces, and even easier buildup/breakdown playability made this a hit in our home!

    28. A 10-pack of Play-Doh that there was no way in hell that you'd ever be able to avoid buying. Fortunately, it's all nontoxic, nonirritating, nonallergenic, and the packaging is recyclable. But, yeah, it still smells like Play-Doh.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Colorful, nontoxic Play-Doh has been great for my son who has many allergies, including skin allergies. He has had no problem with these. This keeps him occupied for quite some time, often when I am cooking or cleaning. I played with this as a child myself and have fond memories of it." ‚ÄĒBrandy P.

    Promising review:¬†"I'm very pleased with this product. The colors are vibrant, as I expected from the pictures. They are also a nice size and sturdy, not flimsy. It does seem that there is a quiet side and a loud side when popping but I wouldn't consider the loud side necessarily too loud or annoying. These are great for kids to use while trying to manage big emotions but also fun just to play with. Planning on buying more to use in my classroom." ‚ÄĒ529

    30. A Fisher-Price "Sit-to-Stand" giant activity book that transforms from a sit-down storybook to an upright activity center with 120+ songs, sounds, and phrases for all the important early learning.

    Amazon

    This is already wrapped and ready to go for my baby girl's first Christmas, who will probably be using it to help her stand (and learn, of course). Also gifting this to friends with similarly aged kids! It's got your ABCs, 123s, and so many shapes for 360 degrees of play. What more could a kid ask for? (Well, plenty, but if they're not talking yet you're in luck.)

    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).

    31. A wooden block jigsaw puzzle because your Gameboy hasn't worked in decades and this could be the most hands-on way to teach the kids how to play Tetris.

    Promising review:¬†"Of all the things I got my 3-year-old son for Christmas, this little puzzle has been played with the most. He loves it. It can be put together multiple ways, but you can get it wrong so you need to think to shift things around to get them to fit. Bright colored pieces are easy to find when they are scattered around the living room." ‚ÄĒMamaBear

    32. A Melissa & Doug My First Daily Magnetic Calendar (with 80 magnets) for little ones to learn how to keep track of the days (including holidays), special events, and even their own feelings. Probably better than any app on your phone that does the exact same things!

    Promising review:¬†"Let me just start by saying I love this calendar. It‚Äôs sturdy, has bright colors, and is easy to read. I bought it for my 2-year-old and she loves it. She gets up in the mornings and changes the weather right away. I love that it has a way to just hang instead of mounting it to a wall. It can be moved around easily. The actual calendar is wood with a magnet board. It has options to change the months, dates, days of the week, seasons, weather, holidays, activities, and 'how I feel today.' I‚Äôve bought many Melissa & Doug products before and this is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this product for your kiddos." ‚ÄĒJenifer Torres
