The Best Toy Picks for Everyone on Your List
It’s almost that time of year when our little ones are making their lists, and we are left walking the store aisles, and scouring pages and pages of online shops trying to find the perfect gift.
This year, I am here to help!
As a mom of 3 little ones and author of a book all about pretend play, I have some strong opinions on toys! Today, I am sharing a gift guide featuring some of my favorite gift ideas for this year. VTech® always does an amazing job creating toys with longevity and multiple play opportunities that will keep your little ones excited and learning.
Here are my top 6 gift picks for ages 6 and under!
If the little one you are shopping for loves music, the VTech® KidiStar DJ Mixer™ is the ultimate gift! You can set up a disco party in their bedroom with the fun sounds and lights on this DJ toy. It even connects to BLUETOOTH®! Our favorite feature is creating custom soundtracks on it and saving them to replay later. You can even practice following rhythms with the included games.
If the little one you are shopping for loves games, the VTech® KidiZoom® Smartwatch DX3™ will get them excited! For those future tech lovers who are always interested in mom or dad’s watches, the VTech® KidiZoom® Smartwatch DX3™ is one of the coolest watches around. It has so many features! We love the free games it comes with–they are perfect for those long waits at the doctor's office or restaurants. Our favorite games are the active games that get them moving like Running Race and Funky Jump. The parental controls are perfect for school. You can even use the light on the watch as a flashlight!
If the little one you are shopping for loves coloring, VTech® Write & Learn Creative Center™ will help their creativity flourish! This is one of those learning toys that your little one will use for years to come! It has animated demonstrations to help with learning the proper way to write their letters. You can even customize it to teach them how to write their own name. From learning shapes, letters, and early writing skills, the VTech® Write & Learn Creative Center™ makes this whole process fun! We love bringing this toy in the car on road trips.
If the little one you are shopping for loves dinosaurs, VTech® Switch & Go® 2-in-1 Spino Speedster will have them flying and roaring all through the house with their new toy! This set of transforming dinosaurs can change from a single dinosaur to a fireball-launching mega car! You can play with it independently as two dinosaurs or combine them together. It has fun sounds and is the ultimate action toy!
If the little one you are shopping for loves reading books, VTech® Storytime With Sunny™ will peak their attention. This toy is mesmerizing for kids with life-like animated expressions and movements. Whether Sunny is telling jokes or helping your little one settle down for bedtime, it's the perfect companion for when bedtime can be a struggle. The soft glowing nightlight makes it easy to fall asleep, and the interchangeable disks let your little one be in control of the fun stories and games that Sunny provides.
If the little one you are shopping for loves watching movies, the VTech® KidiZoom® Creator Cam lets them take the role of director! With a greenscreen included, this camera has so many fun features to spark your child’s creativity. You can swap out the backgrounds on the camera by having the “actors” stand in front of the green screen. The editing and creative tools are right there on the camera. My oldest has had so much fun making short, funny videos with his siblings.
So, there you have it, my top 6 gift picks for the little ones in your life! From music lovers to budding tech enthusiasts, creative minds to dinosaur enthusiasts, and even little bookworms and aspiring filmmakers. VTech® has you covered with a fantastic array of toys that combine fun with learning. These gifts are sure to bring smiles, laughter, and hours of entertainment to your little ones.
Happy gifting and may your holiday season be filled with joy and playtime adventures!
