Finding toys your kids will love in time for Christmas morning is hard every year, but perhaps never more so than this year.
Finding toys your kids will love in time for Christmas morning is hard every year, but perhaps never more so than this year. Christmas 2020 is going to be a headache when it comes to shopping, with Covid-19 forcing many of us to limit our shopping to the internet. So, with that in mind it’s best to get a head start where you can. If you know what toys are the talk of the playground, you can snatch them before anyone else does, and ensure that no worldwide pandemic stops your little one from having a magical Christmas Day. If you have a baby then check out this article on toys for 6 months old babies.
So without further ado, here are some of the must-have toys for Christmas 2020.
Xootz BMX Scooter
It’s fast, looks cool (coming in black and either electric blue or neon green), and is suitable for both beginners and intermediate scooter riders. What kid wouldn’t love it? After a year of being cooped up inside, can there be any better gift than something that makes them excited to get outside again?
Kids love YouTube, and now they have a chance to become their own content creator. A high-definition camera with its own tripod, Kidizoom Studio comes complete with green screen for making special effects, and kid-friendly creative editing tools. With any luck they’ll unlock a new creative passion and develop some valuable skills along the way.
Electric bikes are a great way to get your kids moving this Christmas. They’re also less expensive than scooters, and since they need no gas, no oil, no tune-ups, and don’t create any emissions, they’re better for you and the planet. Electric bikes will provide hours of fun for both children and adults.
Disney Themed Gift Boxes
If you’re looking for a unique gift that is guaranteed to be a hit, your search ends at WaltLife. Their Disney subscription boxes are packed with Disney character collectibles from the past and present, each themed for a specific month. Boxes come four times a year and ship internationally. Plus, their products are all hand-picked by WaltLife so you can rest assured you aren’t giving any less than your best friend deserves.
Diamond painting kits
Is your child a budding artist? Then give them something a little bit special with a diamond painting kit. With diamond art, kids can use tiny rhinestones, a no-mess glue pen, and an easy to follow colour grid to create stunning, shimmering works of art, either of their favourite film characters, animals, nature scenes and more. They will feel an immense sense of pride when they hang a unique piece of high-quality art they created on their wall in the new year. What greater present can there be than that?
Diamond art kits are great value for money, too, so you won’t have to fear a festive season that’s going to break the bank.
Speaking of drawing, why not get your kid a drawing game the whole family can get involved in? Drawsome people contains cards with hilarious drawing challenges. Draw a famous celebrity and see whether other players can guess who it is. Draw your mother with a huge beard, or yourself as a vegetable. You don’t need to have any artistic skill to enjoy this silly, addictive game.
Barbie Dreamhouse and Fashionista Dolls
The latest version of Barbie’s iconic Dreamhouse is everything your little Barbie fan could ever hope for. Standing at 91cm tall and 120cm wide, with an elevator and a pool you can fill with water, as well as realistic lights and sounds, this set will provide them with plenty of imaginative play time after Christmas lunch. It comes with all the accessories, but the dolls are sold separately, which is why you should also look at…
The Barbie Fashionista dolls! These beautiful dolls are a long overdue celebration of diversity for Barbie, coming with a range of different hair colours, skin tones, body shapes and, of course, fashion choices. They’ve even managed to make Ken more interesting! There’s one for every child to love.
Star Wars Mandalorian The Child Animatronic
Anyone with even a passing knowledge of meme culture has heard of Baby Yoda. This adorable animatronic toy comes with 25 sound and motorised motion combinations and would be an adorable addition to your child’s toy collection.
Let’s end with the classics, starting with that most famous Danish export: Lego. There are plenty of Lego sets coming out in time for Christmas which are sure to appeal to any child regardless of their interests – from Super Mario, to Lamborghini, to Friends Central Perk.
What would Christmas be if you didn’t let out your inner ruthless capitalist? Just kidding. But there’s a reason Monopoly is as much a Christmas institution as selection boxes and pigs in blankets: it’s addictive, and fun for the whole family. This Christmas, why not avoid the arguments by buying your child the new Losers Edition, where losing is good and you get money for going to jail?
