1. Zuzu Parade Stuffed Animal Stools

cool christmas gifts for kids

The Zuzu Parade Stuffed Animal Stools are great for the younger crowd (ranging 3 years and up). It’s a beautifully designed stuffed animal (we prefer the turtle) that has a plush pillow top and a bottom that opens up for storage. So not only are they able to sit on it, they’re also able to fill it with goodies that you’ll find later (like, for example, the remote control they’ll likely stuff in there). They’re machine washable, too, so you don’t have to worry about getting it dirty, and the inner bucket provides .58 cubic feet of storage, which is quite a sizable storage container.

Price: $69.99

2. Boon Glo Nightlight with Portable Balls

One of the most popular toys last year was the Boon Glo Nightlight, which has portable nightlight balls that glow. It not only provides a great ambiance to go to sleep to, but it’s always a great way to play ball at night in the dark. The colors can be changed to different colors to provide different glows.

Price: $50.35 (28 percent off MSRP)

3. Anki OVERDRIVE Starter Kit Racing Game

Last year’s Anki Drive kit was one of the year’s best hot new toys, and this year, they company has a follow-up: the Anki Overdrive. It’s like the previous version, but beefed up and fleshed out for a more complete offering. Players will use their mobile devices to take command of real robotic Supercars that will race and battle along a modular track. The starter kit includes 2 supercars, 6 curved trakc pieces, 4 straight track pieces, 2 rise pieces, 1 four-car charger and 1 tire cleaner. Each car uses its own virtual weapon that is activated through the connected game while players are racing, so at any moment, Ground Shock (the car’s name) can shoot an electric pulse to dismantle his enemies, or Skull can use his plasma cannon to blast those in his way. Don’t take my word for it, let Evan explain it to you in the video above.

Price: $119.99

4. Marvel Avengers Hawkeye Longshot Bow

gifts for boys

The Hawkeye Longshot Bow is capable of firing six foam arrows up to 40 feet. And thanks to the popularity of The Avengers: Age of Ultron from earlier in 2015, it’s going to be one of the most sought after toys. What makes it unique is that instead of using just regular bow string that is typically used, it uses a unique pulley system to replicate Hawkeye’s own bow. Bows are more popular than ever, and it’s the perfect (and safe!!) choice.

Inspire Your Kids with Laser Pegs

Of course you want your children to have fun when they’re playing, but wouldn’t it be great if you could inspire them too? Boost their confidence and creativity? Encourage them to pursue concepts and experiment when they don’t understand? You can with Laser Pegs.

Laser Pegs are construction building sets designed to inspire children of any age. With innovative lights and movable parts, there’s no limit to what children can come up with. Compatible with other construction sets, Laser Pegs are a welcome addition to your child’s active imagination. They promote creativity, as well as build important educational and social skills.

Getting Started with STEM

Laser Pegs are a great way to introduce your child to STEM — the acronym for science, technology, engineering and math — skills and give her a head start when it comes to academics. Laser Pegs get children excited about learning as they are exposed to addition and subtraction concepts, as well as pattern and color recognition. These building bricks help children develop fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination and visual-spatial awareness, all skills that promote STEM learning.

Promoting Independence and Teamwork

Playing with Laser Pegs inspires your child in other ways, too. It promotes independent play, teaches your child about autonomy and responsibility, and lets him explore his own creative mind. Laser Pegs can encourage group play, and inspire children to work together to create masterpieces. This increases communication skills, and teaches children to cooperate with one another, and how to work toward a common goal. Both independent and group play work to build problem-solving skills and boost a child’s confidence and self-esteem.

Make Learning Fun

One of the best things you can do for a child is inspire a love of learning. When she plays with Laser Pegs, she understands that learning doesn’t have to be boring. With a hands-on approach that allows kids to be inquisitive and experimental, Laser Pegs inspire them to be anything they can imagine.
