Our 2017 Holiday Top Toy List

There are so many great toys this Holiday season and we have put together a list of our favorites.

We have incorporated toys into this list that we have actually played with and recommend for the child in your life. My family and I feel these toys deserve to be on the list since they are fun and creative!

(these toys are in no particular order)


1. Wacky Links

My kids love Wacky Links because the possibilities are endless. You can create just about anything. Let your imagination soar. We love that there are theme sets but, everyone needs a connector set. The connector set helps make things like the spheres, glasses and so much more…

Great for kids ages 3 and up (it does contain small parts)

2. ORB Molecules

 ORB™ have come up with another awesome way to build, create and have fun! You can create whatever you like with the different colors and sizes of molecules that are included in each set. Kids will love creating and as a parent I love that the molecules only stick to each other so there is no mess. They are also reusable and never dry out.

3. Pikmi Pops

These adorable collectible toys not only look cute but, they smell so good! Each Pikmi has their own scent and kids will love collecting them all. A great stocking stuffer idea.

4. Howtoons

Howtoons has a kit for every child who loves to create and learn the science behind it. Each kit comes complete with a mini comic book and all the materials you need to create the specific project of each box theme. Kids end up with a tangible project they built themselves and we absolutely love it!

We love that you can either subscribe to Howtoons and get a new box each month or you can purchase the specific box you want for the child in your life. My daughters love music so the Ukulele kit was a huge hit! Our cardboard creation really plays and the mini comic book that came with the kit tells you all about sound! Fun while learning.

5. Catch The Fox

A fun game for the whole family to enjoy!

“Uh oh – the Fox is in the hen house! This greedy fox is snapping up the chickens and stuffing them into his pockets. But when there are too many chickens, his pants will fall down and the chickens will escape!”

Recommended for kids ages 4 and up…

Object of the Game:
Be the first to save 5 chickens by filling up your chicken coop.

       We also recommend : Pop the Pig, Greedy Granny, and Doggie Doo which are all great games for kids by Goliath!




6. Oonies

Oonies are a fun way to play with a non- latex balloon in different ways. You can create, play and stick them together for a fun creative experience.

Recommend for kids 5 years and older

7.  Happy Salmon

A high energy and fast-paced card game that will get you out of your seat for laugh out loud fun!

“Actions including the classic “High 5”, the unifying “Pound It”, the frantic “Switcheroo”, and the delightful “Happy Salmon” will leave players doubled over in laughter. With so many mini-celebrations built into the play, it’s the happiest game ever!”

I love that this game can be brought with you anywhere for a fun on-the-go card game. Kids and adults will love this game. Great for kids ages 6 and up

North Star Games is also the creator of fun family games geared towards kids ages 6 and up! They include Wits & Wagers, Blurble and Say Anything. All of these games make a family game night so much fun!




8. Air Hogs

I really liked the Hyper Drift Drone because it can be used on land or used in the air. The drone hits high speeds on the ground ( like the coolest remote control vehicle for kids and adults ) and the remote can be used in beginner and advanced modes.

Recommended for ages 8 and up

There are different race models and another great one was the DR1 FPV Race Drone. This is a drone where you are the pilot and you can see what the drone sees with the First Person Viewing capability.


9. Scoop & Learn Ice Cream Cart

Calling all kids ages 2 to 5 years old who love ice cream!

Learning is scoop-able fun with this adorable cart. My 3-year-old loves playing with this cart. It is small in size but, provides a large amount of imaginative play.

10. Luv A Bella Dolls

These realistic animatronic baby dolls are a huge hit with kids. They do almost EVERYTHING a real baby does. You can use their “interactive accessories, such as the spoon, bottle, pacifier and Lamby toy. Kids will have a natural nurturing experience as they feed, burp, play and soothe their own baby.”

I will say these dolls can be borderline creepy but, the kids really like them.

11.  WowWee Chippies

Meet your new puppy playmates:
Chipper, Chippo, Chippette & Chippella!

These are fun remote control dogs that your kids will love to play with. The remote is simple to use and is suitable for kids ages 5 and up. Pet their heads for different reactions including sniffs, barks, puppy kisses, and even a sneeze!

WowWee also makes the popular Fingerlings.

These animals are such an adorable and a fun interactive toy for kids.



12. Twistocity

This game brings a lot of fun to your game night! The persona cards will make you come out of your shell when you pull one of these cards. Imagine speaking like a Transylvanian Vampire and end with a “Ah, ha, ha!”

We love trying to say the original tongue twisters… “Blue blew the big blown up blue balloons beautifully.”

“Twistocity is a card game where players combine hilarious voices with tongue twisters while secretly improving your speech.”

This game is perfect for kids ages 13+

13.  Artsplash 3D Liquid Art

We love creating with Artsplash! It is so much fun to see water art stay still on these “magic” sheets.

“Winner of ABC’s The Toy Box! Artsplash(TM) lets you create colorful, 3D art with WATER! Use the color dyes to mix any combination of colors you want, then use the Aquapen to place the colored water onto any of the 6 different Artsheet designs – the only limit is your imagination! And when you’re finished, just wipe the Artsheet clean and start again!”

Transform your original Magformers into a Log House or a Princess Castle. The themes are adorable and include windows, doors, trees, and other accessories for more Magnetic fun!
