Christmas Ideas for Kids

Idea #1: LEGO® Star Wars™ AT-ST™ Walker

Price: $39.99

Kids can hunt for evil forces by building at AT-ST Walker, created by LEGO. This set offers an age-appropriate building experience for ages 8-14 with multiple accessories and minifigures to fight against enemies in the galaxy. Be forewarned, this may not be one of the best Christmas gifts for toddlers because of the many small pieces, which may pose a choking hazard for young children.

Idea #2: LeapFrog LeapStart Interactive Learning System for Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten

Price: $27.96

Unlike our first idea, this interactive learning system designed for kids 2 to 4 years of age is definitely among the best Christmas gifts for toddlers. Your youngster will be thrilled to use his LeapFrog to count and solve problems without it ever getting old. He/she can learn at their own pace in a fun, engaging manner, and that's why we have it listed among our Top 10 Christmas gifts for kids.

Idea #3: Disney Moana Starlight Canoe and Friends

Price: $41.99

Walt Disney Pictures' latest animated movie tells the story of a Polynesian princess, Moana, as she journeys across the Pacific Ocean to save her island people. Get your child the newest Disney princess doll complete with a boat, sail and accessories that will bring out their inner hero this holiday season.

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.

Idea #5: Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-a-pillar

Price: $42.99

Perfect for ages 3 to 6 years, the Think & Learn Code-a-pillar encourages your child to develop important skills such as problem solving, sequencing and critical thinking. This is one of the best Christmas gifts for toddlers, especially curious ones, so they can engage in hands-on learning.

Idea #6: 3Doodler Start Kid-Safe 3D Printing Pen Essentials Set

Price: $49.99

Here's one of the best Christmas gifts for kids that allows them to get creative! The 3Doodler Start kit uses an Eco-Plastic that is made entirely from food grade materials, so it's completely biodegradable, non-toxic and BPA-free. Designed for children ages 8 and older, the 3Doodler Start will improve your chidl's artistic skills without the use of pen and paper!

Idea #7: Rory's Story Cubes

Price: $9.99

This is one of the best Christmas gifts for kids on a budget! Originally designed as a creative problem solving tool for adults, this artistic game is a pocket-sized story generator, providing hours of imaginative play for families with children ages 8 and up. Rory's Story Cubes uses images to trigger stories and gives everyone the opportunity to become a unique storyteller. It definitely belongs on the list of top 10 Christmas gifts for kids.
