Hatchimals

When we were young, we all wanted to take care of animals. Whether it was a kitty or puppy, many of us grew up with animals in the house, and now that trend is continuing with youngsters everywhere. As such, I present to you Hatchimals.

Hatchimals are egg-shaped toys that hatch into a variety of animals. Most kids will go to great depths to get their hands on these incredible toys. It is among the latest craze sweeping the globe, and we highly encourage you to buy this toy for your children. You’ll be glad you did when you see that smile on your child’s face.

Lego

Lego has been a mainstay on toy shelves for decades. It is so popular that it even has more than 15 movies named after it. Moreover, Lego has lots of cool pieces, such as; tires, houses, pets, and trees. Using these pieces you could even connect them to create different buildings and scenery.

We all want the best for our children, and there is no doubt that after buying a pack, you’ll be so impressed with Lego that you’ll buy another pack – or two. It should be about $15-$20 per pack and could easily be found at any Walmart. The key to brightening any child’s face is by buying a set of Lego.

Fidget Spinner

There is no doubt about it, fidget spinners are currently the most trending toy. A large majority of children already have one – or twenty. It is a hand spinner that has bearings, but the quality is greatly dependent on the price. In addition, some fidget spinners include glow-in-the-dark, chrome (shiny), and camouflage.

A fidget spinner would only cost you around $6.00 at Toys R Us and Amazon. And of course, the higher quality ones will fetch a pretty penny. However, as this fad is soon to disappear with the season, we recommend opting for the cheaper model.

Furthermore, it will undoubtedly increases your child’s skills by teaching them to logically solve problems. Such skills will surely aid them with future goals and aspirations.

Hoverboard

Hoverboards have been a children’s obsession since 2016. If you go to any playground, you will see a bunch of kids zipping across on these. It is essentially a board with wheels where you ride by balancing accordingly. It is a favorite among teens and pre-teens. That’s not all, professionals could even practice dance moves on them.

We highly recommend that you buy your youngster a ”really cool”  hoverboard to bring about a smile on your child’s face. If you want your child to be active and healthy, a hoverboard is the perfect present. Be warned, your child will barely be home after getting a board.
