Each year, the Gifts team compiles our favorite toys we tried and tested throughout the year to come up with our Holiday Toy Guide. And trust me when I say, it gets harder and harder each year. With so many toys out there and your child being bombarded with advertising everywhere, it’s hard to decide which toy is right for them. When it comes to choosing our favorites, we take a number of factors into consideration.

Is it fun?, safe, appropriate for a certain age, does it interact or teach a child something, and most importantly, will the play value last well past Christmas morning?

We broke it down by age, all the way from newborns to teens, featuring 10-16 selections for each. I like to think we got a great variety of options this year for boys and girls alike.

Along with our Holiday Toy Guide, we also have a guide on Awarding Winning Toys, chosen by parents and industry experts alike. And if you’re ever unsure about a toy, pop over to our Toy Safety Guide that includes a safety checklist and a constantly updated list of toy recalls.

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are usually the prime time to buy, holiday toys tend to sell-out like hotcakes, set get a jump start on your checklist today.
