Santa isn’t necessarily a mindreader and, let’s be honest, sometimes she has a hard time reading what your kids wrote on their Christmas letter. We could all use a little bit of help, really. Recently, The Today Show named their top toys for the upcoming holiday season so we were inspired to come up with our own. It seems like everyone is coming up with the ‘must have’ toy list this year so we combed through all the lists from retailers like Target, Walmart, and Amazon. Here’s our must-have list for kids of almost any age. There aren’t 100 to choose from because who has time for that?! These are the only 10 you really need to know about.
