Top 10 Toys for Kids this Christmas

Somehow we’ve found ourselves at that time of year again. And if your kids are anything like mine, that means little voices telling you at least once a day what they want for Christmas.

There are so many amazing toys out there, how do we choose which will benefit our kids and that they'll also enjoy? 

Here are my Top 10 Toys for this Christmas. There is something for everyone in here, and will hopefully help you with a few decisions. 


These are HUGELY popular and selling out fast. They’re most certainly the toy to have this Christmas. ToysRUs say they received more stock mid December, as are Kmart and Big W.

Pie Face Board game

Having fun as a family on Christmas will create some of the most precious memories you can give your children, and what better what better way to make them laugh that with a cream pie in the face! This game is sure to be a winner this holiday season.


Most kids love Lego, and no matter what their into - Star Wars, Super Heroes, Ninjas, Pirates, Fairies, shopping, trucks, cars and the list goes on - there’s a Lego set for them. There’s always something for any age and any budget.

Little Live Pets Snuggles My Dream Puppy

This puppy has cute written all over it, and girls love cute things. It makes puppy noises and moves in response to your child's actions. It’s a great tool to encourage the nurturing element so many girls have.

NERF Rebelle Arrow Revolution

This Rebelle collection looks like so much fun. The kids could get really stuck into so many fantasy games; sport games and really refines hand eye coordination. Girls would most definitely beat the boys on the the NERF front.

Wild Science Crazy Chemistry Set

So many kids love doing experiments, there's something about making rockets, explosions and slime that fires off their neurons and gets them super excited, and I don’t blame them – If we can make learning fun, we’re onto a winner.

14 in 1 Solar Robot Kit

This is a fantastic science project for kids to get their teeth into. It’s a great way for them to learn about green energy, while creating exciting robots like a tail wagging dog, a surfer, a walking crab and more!

Walkie Talkies

These have been around for a long time, and are a firm favourite for so many kids. If you invest in a better quality set the scope is so much better. From playing out in nature, to giving one to their best friend who lives next door. SO much imaginative play to be had!


FurReal Friends Torch, My Blazin ‘Dragon

This cute little dragon interacts with touch. It breathes a fine mist of ‘fire’, and toasts a marshmallow. Kids will love looking after and playing with this little guy.

How Things Work Encyclopedia

Kids have an amazing thirst for knowledge, and we should be there to encourage that and give them all the tools they need. Encyclopedia books are the type of gifts that might seem a little less exciting than others, but their also the ones that kids tend to keep hold of longer.
