It is extremely likely that I will do the bulk of my holiday shopping online this year. Instead of letting my kids roam the aisles and show me what they want Santa to bring, I'll lean hard on curated toy registries like
Amazon's Toys We Love list to see what the must-have gizmos and gadgets are for kids this year.
Let's face it, your kids are probably watching way more TV these days and have already seen a plethora of enticing commercials advertising some of these incredible new toys. But, like the rest of us stressed out parents, you're probably too busy working from home or chasing a naked kid (or both) to pay any mind to what's hot and what's not when it comes to kids' toys. That's where Amazon steps in to save your sanity with more than 100 items that kids will be thrilled to see under the tree this year.
On the Toys We Love list, you'll find a little bit of everything. From STEM toys to puzzles and board games, baby toys, toddler toys, and everything in between, they have something for everyone. You can sort the toys in this list by both category and age on Amazon to make your shopping experience easier than ever. Take a look at just a handful of must-have toys from Amazon's list below and get a jump-start on your holiday shopping.
