Attention people! In case you are stressing about what to get your daughter, sons, nephews, nieces, kids next door, the toddler of Mr Brown or the annoying(let’s be kind) cousin of yours something for this Christmas, here you go.
This is the list of 10 of the hottest gifts for kids, for year 2016.
10. Two Way Radio Walkie Talkie ($20.99)
This is a set of two radio walkie talkies with a mile range of 2. Recommended ages for these walkie talkies are age 4 to 15. The unit runs on 4 AAA batteries. It has adjustable volume, built-in flashlight. These are incredibly fun for the kids for playing all sorts of games outdoors. They can act and play and have a fun time.
“I bought these so that my three and five-year-old sons could play with them in the backyard. So far it has been a fun experience. Since my yard is not very big, I don’t have any problems with the reception at all thus far. I suppose if they go too far away from each other we might have issues with the reception but as small as our yard is it has been perfect.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash Track Set ($35.99)
This is a sturdy elevated car racing and crashing play area. It includes 16 feet of track that includes hairpin turns, motorised boosters and a large crash zone. It also includes parking spaces throughout the set for additional storage and safeguards for kids over the crash zones. The kids can line up their cars on the tracks and play crash-and-misses for hours.
“A pair of six-year-old boys just couldn’t have much more fun than this. A game designed to crash Hot Wheels cars is just the ticket. I especially appreciated the perforated back of the box making it easy to open. This toy is easy to assemble. It took all of five minutes to put it together with the well-documented instructions, including installing the batteries which required a Phillips head screwdriver. The 4 D cell batteries are not included. Turn on the switch to start the launcher working and drop the cars on the ramp. Our son was able to use some of his Hot Wheels cars while some of the larger taller cars wouldn’t work. Only one new Hot Wheels car comes with the track set. There’s nothing complicated here. One, Two, or more children can enjoy this game. The kids played with this for a long time. It was a big hit. Check out the video I attached. I highly recommend this Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash Track Set.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
8. LEGO Star Wars Building Kit ($39.99)
This package is ideal for all the star warriors. You get to play with eight mini-figures and vehicles including slave I, a TIE interceptor, AAT, T-16 shopper, sleigh, Republic cruiser, Droid Gunship, Jedi Interceptor, skiff and an imperial landing craft.

“This is the 3rd year I’ve bought these for my kids. They are the coolest advent calendars! I try to purchase them no later than the 1st of November because they either sell out or go up in price. This is the 1st wrapped Christmas gift my kids get. I give them to them the night before December 1st or that morning, depending on if it’s school or not because I like for them to be able to open each day up and have time to build their item for the day.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
7. Little Tikes – My First Flyer ($27.99)
This is an easy-to-fly remote controlled helicopter perfect for young enthusiasts of air-born vehicles. Once touch can make it fly, land and turn. The auto-hover technology keeps the helicopter suspended in midair for easy flying. The protective propellers and emergency shut-off enhance safety. It comes with LED lights and sounds for extra fun. Good option!
“My boys 4 & 6 have owned and broken several adult type helicopters. They all break within days. This little helicopter has outlasted all of them because it has unique rings that protect the blades. It isn’t perfect and can be a little hard to manoeuvre, but my boys squeal every time they play with it. Will be my go-to Christmas gift this year!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
6. Cozmo ($179.99)
Cozmo is a real life robot capable of expressing real emotions in response to your actions. Cozmo is brought to life by a free application and the processing power of your laptop or tablet.

5. Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game ($10.19)
This is an incredibly healthy game for promoting teamwork, time-management and creativity in kids. The kids can play either in groups or one-on-one. Each member or team has to make as many different cupcakes in the card recipe in the required time and the one with the most and correct wins. The package comes with 40 cupcake parts, 30 recipe cards, ten tiles, one sand timer, one game rules manual. The game is intended for 2 or more players, ages 3 and up.
“My daughter received this for her 4th birthday. Princesses and cupcakes? How much more girly could you get? Each cupcake has four interchangeable parts that make up 10 cupcakes total. The game comes with ‘recipe’ cards that dictate different combinations that must be built in the duration of the sand timer after flipping over cards. The timer lasts for one ’round’ and the cards that permit you to flip the timer introduce a chance element, because four clock cards mean that the game is over and however many cupcakes you made so far is your final score. The great part is that it is a ‘team’ game where we are all working together (no winners or losers! perfect for the tenderhearted preschoolers). At first, my boys didn’t want anything to do with the girly looking game, but when they saw us having fun assembling the cupcakes as speedily as we could, they couldn’t help themselves and joined in too.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
4. Nintendo ($199.99)
This is the new Nintendo, 3DS extra large in red. It is compatible with Ami IBO and is supported by NFC. You can play all 3D games and use parental control for restricting 3D mode for kids under 6. The C stick allows for improved controls, and it has a faster processor for a smoother user experience. Incredible fun since this is the best version of this system.
“This is the best Nintendo system I’ve owned! I love the different options of colours they offer; I got a pink one for myself and then decided to get another one for my little sister. I started with the Gameboy Color, then I had the Gameboy Advance, and entirely skipped the DS until this one. The touch screen works great, doesn’t lag or anything. The 3D option does its job; it makes the gameplay more vivid. It has different settings for brightness which is very convenient. It has settings for wifi, parental control, a shop which lets you buy the games on the actual 3DS and download it. It’s a great system to have, if you could be care less about the 3D feature but want the DS, you can consider purchasing the 2DS which is a lot cheaper, and you can play the same games.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Hasbro Pie Face Game ($12.99)
If you are looking for fun, this game might just make your days. The pie throwing arm can go off any moment, and you can score a point every time you turn the handle without getting splattered. The handle holds the cream. Slide your head through the mask and wait for it. Includes one pie thrower, one throwing arm, two handles, chin rest, splash guard cover, spinner and sponge. Hilarious, family fun!
“What a FUN game for all ages! We had game night last night, and this game was a huge hit! We were all laughing at each other. Do yourself a favour. Buy this game, a can of whip cream and create some fun memories!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
2. Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit ($17.50)

The snap and play parts require no tools. Gives your children an insight of how electric models work.
“We bought this toy, and at the beginning, my kids did not play with it, it was kind of “complicated”, different from traditional toys, many pieces, etc… It was mysterious. One rainy day I started playing with it myself, grabbed the manual and suddenly all of my children wanted to play, it wasn’t complicated at all, was super exciting and fun. All you need to do is do a couple of projects with them, so they can learn how to use it. We don’t call the pieces by its name yet, but it will be my next step, to explain each part, what is it for, why is important so that they can learn. Since that day I always buy it as a birthday gift for the five years old children that have played with us while at my house and up. I’ll recommend to use it with an adult to help them so that it will be more fun for all. We have made the radio, the alarm, the water activated alarm, etc.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
1. Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy ($5.99)
Incredible toy for toddlers with seven baby-friendly melodies and volume control. The colourful and easy to grasp Caterpillar handle ensures that the little one can take along tunes anywhere. Baby version of MP3 with bright lights dancing on the screen.
“I bought this toy when my son was five months old. This is so far his favourite toy I got for my baby. I’m glad I purchased this because he is undoubtedly happy with it. His music gifts were inspired, giving him strange feelings, offering him different explosions. There are seven classical songs from Mozart, Chopin, Vivaldi, and Rossini, and he never gets tired of hearing. He loved this at five months old and still loves it now at one year old. Also, this caterpillar bead chaser handle is so cute and fun, making it easy for little hands to hold. It is excellent quality because my son chews on the toy without it broken. This toy has brought a lot of joy to my baby. High-quality toy at an affordable price. It’s worth buying if you have children.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
