Lego City Advent Calendar

Lego City Advent Calendar Price: $29.99 at Lego
What child doesn’t love building with Legos? Pair that with the excitement of an Advent calendar, and you have the perfect holiday gift! A different Christmas-themed toy or mini-figure to build each day!

Nintendo Wii

Price: $199.99 at GameStop
Not just a video game console! It’s the first one that forces you to get up off the couch and be social, too! The remote and nunchuk are incredibly easy to use and intuitive, and the range of games is amazing. Add the Super Mario Brothers game, and it’s not just fin for the kids, it’s fun for you, too!

Pottery Barn Sophie, Chloe, and Anna Dolls

Pottery Barn Sophie, Chloe, and Anna Dolls Price: $39.00 at Pottery Barn Kids
Each of these pretty fabric dolls has soft yarn hair and flexible wire frames (so they can be posed). They come dressed in cute outfits, and you can even purchase extra outfits for different occasions and activities. Sophie is Caucasian with a blonde pony-tail, Chloe is Caucasian with dark brown hair, and Anna is African-American with dark brown pig-tails. So cute!

Mo Willems “the Pigeon” Books

Mo Willems “the Pigeon” Books Price: $14.99 each at Mo Willems website
Each of the four Mo Willems’ “Pigeon” books has become a NY Times bestseller, and they’re all loved by children (and adults!) of all ages. Titles include “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus,” “The Pigeon Wants a Puppy,” “The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog,” And “Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay up Late,” which makes an ideal bed-time story!

Anything Related to Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb”

Anything Related to Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb” Price: $13.99 – 34.99 at amazon.com
Books, DVDs, soundtracks, plush toys, and video games. Anything that relates to this popular Disney Channel animated series featuring two inventive step-brothers is bound to be a smash hit! Boys love it, girls love it, adults love it! And at least it’s not Hannah Montana, right?

Playskool Explore and Grow Busy Ball Popper

Price: $17.00 at amazon.com
What to buy the active, curious baby on your list? This is it! It’s colorful, safe, and will provide your little one with hours of entertainment and fun! Press on the little mushroom, and the colorful balls pop into the air, then land back into the tray to start over again…

Name a Star

Name a Star Price: $54.00 at International Star Registry
What to get for the child who has everything? Why not select a star and name it for them? The child will receive a certificate and will get to choose the name they want to use, and the gift lasts a lifetime. Imagine making your bedtime wish on your own star!

Snowman in a Sack

Snowman in a Sack Price: $24.95 at Land of Nod
Build snowmen and memories with this fantastic snowman kit! It includes a faux carrot nose, 3 blue buttons, black coal-type eyes, a corncob pipe, a scarf, and a black hat. Mother Nature supplies the snow, and you and the kids spend an hour outside, building the best snowman ever! Then of course it’s back inside for hot cocoa with marshmallows!

Marshmallow Shooter

Price: $13.95 – 34.95 at Marshmallowville
I’m not normally one to suggest toys that resemble guns or anything else that might be violent, but this time, I can’t help myself. A co-worker gave me one of these, and now I recommend them for anyone looking for a gift for a pre-teen boy (or even adult men!). They even sell marshmallow cross-bows and Executive Shooters! I know, I know… it’s still a gun… but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

10

IPod Shuffle

IPod Shuffle Price: $59.00 – 79.00 at Apple
Five brilliant, yum-pop colors, with 2GB or 4GB of music storage. Small, simple to use, with no complicated screens or touch-wheels. Probably not sturdy enough for the under-ten set, but perfect for your pre-teen music lover! Choose dark grey, silver, pink, green, or blue. Add a $10 or $15 iTunes gift card to get their music library started, too!

11

Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters

Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters Price: $9.99 at Toys R Us
This is the hard-to-find must-have gift for little girls this season! It’s not hard to see why — they’re cute, and best of all, interactive! There are four different Hamsters available, and all of them have their own personalities. Chunk is the laid-back surfer-dude, Pipsqueak is sweet and small, Squiggles is fussy and finicky, and Num-Nums is a giggly little love. Hard to find, but you can locate anything on eBay, right?

Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Digital Camera

Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Digital Camera Price: $50.00 at Fisher-Price
Available in blue (for your little man) or pink (for your little princess). It’s a real digital camera, easy enough for toddlers to use, but sturdy enough to survive what kids can do to their toys! Stores up to 500 photos, with big buttons, a color LCD preview screen, and a simple USB connection to download, print, or share photos.

Whether you have a baby, toddler, or big kid, a girl or a boy, there’s certainly something on this list for every child on your list! These are the 12 best Christmas gifts this holiday season, but there are so many more, too! What’s your must-have children’s Christmas gift this year? What do you plan to give? Please let me know… thanks!
