Presents are fun at any age.
Everyone loves the holidays, but they’re particularly magical for kids. Lights, candy, and quality time with family: what could be better? Well, the presents! Although with so many options available, it can be hard to know the best ones to pick. Luckily, there are resources like the Toy Insider that release themed lists like the Hottest 20 Toys of the Year, 12 Toys Under $12, The Best Stem Toys and reveal top trends like games and puzzles, and at-home activities. I tapped them to get a couple of picks for baby and toddler gifts, which editor-in-chief Marissa DiBartolo described as having “incredible play value.” I also threw in some other options to consider. Check out the list below.

It’s always a win when you find a toy that can hold a little one’s attention span for longer than a few minutes. Well, the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Grow-The-Fun Garden to Kitchen ($79.99) manages to do just that thanks to the two-sided activities. Children can pick fruits and vegetables from the garden on one side and use them to play in the kitchen (think a light-up juicer) on the other. It also features 125 125 songs, sounds, and phrases. No wonder The Toy Insider named it as one of their top toys of the year.
