    I think this list is nearly…
    Most popular and most expensive.
    We got our kids the stuffed “child” fir under $20 and they will be more than thrilled with that…and a lower $

  2. SarahS

    The paint with sticker book Glittery one is so fun. My daughter (6 years old) would not put it down. She would have done the whole book in one setting! It’s great or identifying numbers (some up to 90).

    My girls n I luv the Mini Brands, especially the toys. So well-made n truly adorable. Staying in the family forever. I didn’t think they’d make the list since they’re miniature, but I’m not surprised. I bought them the toy ones for Christmas. Thanks H2S for being the first to tell me bout them a year ago.

    • Krystal

      I found mini brand balls in 2 packs at Ross for $7.99 truly didnt realize what a good deal it was. I just thought it would be fun to go with my daughter’s barbie themed stocking this year. After seeing 3 packs of the same balls for $24 im glad I just impulse bought them when I saw them.

      You’re so welcome, Kay!
