Christmas is just a couple months away!🎄

It’s never too early to get a head start on Christmas shopping, especially toys! Amazon recently released a list of their Top 100 Holiday Toys, and there is something for every kid on your list!

Not sure where to start? Check out these 10 Toys (rated 4.5+ stars):

(I’d suggest bookmarking any of these toy links you’re interested in and checking back regularly to see if the price has dropped. We will also be posting on Hip2Save when we see price drops, so stay tuned!)

1.) Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit

Kids can create their own custom Droid and bring it to life using littleBits electronic blocks! With the free Droid Inventor app, they’ll give their R2 Unit new abilities and take it on 16+ missions. Then they’ll level-up their inventor skills, re-configuring parts to design any Droid they can dream up.

2.) Cozmo the Toy Robot

Say Hello to Cozmo, a gifted little guy who’s got a mind of his own and a few tricks up his sleeve. He’s curiously smart, a little mischievous, and unlike anything ever created. Cozmo is a real-life robot like you’ve only seen in movies, with a one-of-a-kind personality that evolves the more you hang out. He’ll nudge you to play and keep you constantly surprised.

3.) Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit

Give your child a hands-on introduction to electronics with Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100. This innovative kit contains over 30 color-coded, real circuit components that snap together to create working electronic circuits and devices. Recommended for children 8 and older, this set offers 101 do-it-yourself projects that will give your child an entertaining, concrete education on how electronics work.

4.) Klutz LEGO Chain Reactions Craft Kit

The Klutz LEGO Chain Reactions Craft Kit contains what you need to turn ordinary bricks into amazing chain reaction machines. With 78 pages of detailed instructions with brightly colored images, kids will learn to build machines ranging in complexity from easy to advance.

5.) LeapFrog Shapes And Sharing Picnic Basket

The Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket helps little learners explore shapes, colors, manners, and more. The 14-piece set helps children build motor skills as they sort, match, stack, empty, and fill. Recommended for children ages 6 to 36 months.

6.) VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set

Perform like a star with the KidiBeats Drum Set. Tap the three light-up drum pads and cymbal with the included drumsticks to hear each of their unique sounds for sensory development. Play along to built-in melodies in a variety of styles including rock, dance, pop or in your own style to encourage musical creativity. Four play modes include Free Play, Letters, Numbers and Follow Along.

7.) LeapFrog Scribble and Write

Children trace the lights to get practice drawing upper- and lowercase letters and numbers. Scribble & Write provides stroke-by-stroke guidance and has a NEW mode that provides instant accuracy feedback. Best of all, Scribble & Write uses a single re-traceable surface for ease of use and portability. Appropriate for children ages 3 years and up.

8.) Fisher-Price Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi

With 360 degrees of mobility, 3 exciting game modes and 6 games to choose from, Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi encourages preschoolers to get their minds and bodies moving while teaching them how to follow directions and think critically about the world around them!

9.) Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Dancing Groot

This 11.5-inch Dancing Groot figure plays a clip from the upcoming Guardians of Galaxy Volume 2 movie soundtrack, so that when the far-out beat starts to play, Groot can’t help but to get those roots in motion! Groot can also detect external music, so when the figure recognizes tunes from a phone, tablet, or other device, Dancing Groot starts to boogie!

10.) Barbie Dreamhouse

Dream up all kinds of stories with three floors, seven rooms, 70+ accessories and a working elevator with simple pull mechanism. This Barbie Dreamhouse provides the perfect setting for all kinds of stories, from a fun night in to getting ready for girls’ night out.

    My little girl got that picnic basket for her first birthday and still loves it nearly 2 years later. So many of the leap frog toys really go the distance with toddlers.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      How cute! Good to know the picnic basket has held up so well Carole! Thanks a bunch for your feedback!

    • Meg

      I second the picnic basket. My toddler got it for Christmas. She is now 18 months and it’s a favorite.

  2. Shelley P

    I know a few adults that would love that dancing Groot for Christmas 😃😉

  3. Yana

    I like the number 1 and 2 for myself

    Thanks for great list Collin and team!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Lol! I know! They are SO neat! You’re most welcome!

  4. Alli

    I clicked on the LeapFrog Scribble & Write and the newer version (LeapFrog Mr. Pencil’s Scribble & Write) came up cheaper at $17.15.

  5. Amy

    My son begged for Cozmo for Christmas last year and has only played with it a handful of times. It is a really neat and cute toy though! Reminds me of WALL-E.

  6. CO Mama

    Super Nintendo Entertainment System is the hot toy. sells out within minutes and people are selling them for double.

    • Freckle53

      I’ve seen them in stock in Target and 3 different Walmart’s this week. I think Nintendo kicked up production.

  7. Rachel

    My brother in law would love #1 and he’s 24!

  8. Jiya

    Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit is even engaging for adults.

  9. pure.Cheri

    I looked through the list and own the drums, picnic basket, and Scribble/Write board…they are fun toys but as always, kids get tired of playing with them :/

  10. SusyShmoosy

    I bought the picnic basket for my 3 year old and that was 6 years ago, and she still uses it to play with her American Girl dolls!

  11. Valerie H

    My boys are 7 and 9 and have had the snap circuits for a couple years now. They love them!

  12. Haley

    Personally I try to leave the toy gifts to grandparents and aunts/uncles. My kids know what toys they like and I’m already tottering on the brink of a toy purge. From us the kids get personalized items (this year, pillowcases and books), gift cards to mcdonalds/Chikfila, my son is getting his own flashlights (he loves flashlights), and movie theater or activity passes.

  13. Dragonfly121204

    I found an even better deal for the LeapFrog toy. It is for the Mr. Pencil’s Scribble & Write Tablet , which is the newest version of the toy above. If you buy it at Kohl’s, it is on sale for $19.79, but if you use your Kohl’s charge, you can use codes FALL30 and FREE4MVC to get an additional 30% off and free shipping. That makes it $13.85 plus tax.

  14. IHeartDeals

    Top toys on my list for my kiddos are Lego Boost, Baby Alive Sweet Tears, FurReal Tiger, and Sound Moovz. I’m really hoping for a killer deal on Lego Boost because it is expensive but my son would love it!
