    We Did A Lot Of Research On Kid's Toys And Here Are The Best Ones You Can Still Get Before Christmas

    We weeded out the toys that aren't worth the hype and kept it to the ones you can still get in time!

    Hi, we're Asia and Krista and we are moms to some pretty amazing kiddos. Asia has 6-year-old twin daughters – Cailyn and Bria – and Krista has an 11-year-old son – Evan.

    Since we've been doin' the whole Christmas thing for a while now, we know how stressful shopping for the kids can get. Deciding what toys fit in your budget, what toys your kid will actually play with, what toys you can get last-minute, and what toys won't annoy the heck out of you, it's overwhelming!
