Christmas Ideas for Kids

Idea #4: Paw Patrol Adventure Bay Town Set With Marshall

Price: $28.49

Paw Patrol is on a roll! This fun and interactive toy set allows your child to help Marshall rescue Itty Bitty Kitty from atop the hardware store. We at Kennywood know Paw Patrol must be included on any Top 10 Christmas gifts for kids list, because when they visited us during Kidsfest, we had lines stretching from one end of the park to another! The beloved children's program is brought to life with a real, working ladder and movable character figures. Suitable for children ages 3 and up, this is a great Christmas gift for toddlers as well as older kids.

Kennywood Holiday Lights

Holiday Lights, ranked as one of the top 10 holiday theme park attractions in the country, is the perfect event for families to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.

As an extra holiday gift, treat your child to the Kennywood Christmas lights at one of America's best amusement parks. Visit the new Gingerbread Village from the renowned cake decorator, GingerBread Lane, witness the spectacular light show surrounding the park's lagoon and listen to holiday classics performed by local choral and band groups.

Kennywood Holiday Lights is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until December 23, 2016, featuring rides, Santa Claus, Christmas cookies and so much more!
