Finding the perfect gift for any kid is always a struggle, who has the time to keep on top of the latest trends and coolest gadgets for the little ones? Turns out, we do. Let us guide you through the must-have toys for kids of all ages. From Kindles to Bluey merch, this is the must-have gifts for kids.

Bluey Camp

The hottest ticket in Los Angeles right now is a spot at the Camp store’s exclusive Bluey Immersive Experience. At this ticketed event fans can enter the real-life house of the lovable Heeler family, a foursome of Australian Blue Heelers who go by the names of Mom, Dad, Bingo and the titular Bluey. This delightful Brisbane-made cartoon has a hold on the children of the world, and that’s a good thing because most of the episode revolve around cheerful lessons about being a good person (but without being overtly preachy). But if you can’t get to LA to see the Heelers IRL, you can always pick up one of the several Bluey merch moments happening right now. Starting with the Vtech keytar, the keepie uppie board game, the ultra trendy and very soft Bluey squishmallow (pictured above) and (my personal favorite) the Hammerbarn Shopping play set that recreated the entire home goods store.

Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza Card Game

With over 46K reviews on Amazon, this highly recommended card game is great for ages 4 and up. It’s a basic slap (not hands, just your pile) card game where you match the taco, cat, goat, cheese or pizza but there are a few wild cards (like a narwhal) that will throw everyone off. It’s easy to play anywhere, super easy for take without and can fill hours of time.

Wagonfold Wagons

No one in the history of the world has ever said, “Now that’s a great-looking wagon,” and then there was Wonderfold. Let your kid ride in style (up to four of them!) in this absolutely devastatingly handsome wagon that elegantly folds up into a little accordion you can store just about anywhere. They are the Cadillac of wagons, and are currently on sale for Black Friday.

Mudpuppy Travel Games

If you have a family you know will be traveling over the holidays, why not give them the gift of a chill ride? We have personally tested the Mudpuppy travel sets and can attest, they work! Their magnet sets can fill loads of time in the back seat or on a plane dressed up their various characters for all kinds of settings, think of it as a magnetic paper doll kit. Big favorites included and space bingo.

Little Tikes Story Dream Machine

If you see the Little Tikes projector for sale, spring into action. This is THE toy of 2023 for little kids. Made for ages 3 and up (although a 2-year-old would probably be into it as well) the dream machine projects the classic stories from “little golden books” onto the wall and narrates each page. But you’re not limited to the golden book collection, once you get the main set you can buy other books to read including the “The Berenstain Bears” stories and more. It’s completely charming and almost always sold out so act fast if you see it available.

The Nugget

The Nugget: a couch, tent, fort or mountain that your kids can build and destroy over and over and over again. Available in just about any color (purple, green, grey, brown, yellow, beige, pink, and all shades of blue) this soft kid couch will tire out even the most active of littles.

Star Wars Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

Baby Yoda will light up your kid’s room in this Bluetooth compatible speaker. Aside from being wildly adorable, the Mandalorian-inspired device, which includes speech and sound from the hit series, can also stream music up to 30 feet away with an impressive bass and small but powerful subwoofer.

The Fire HD tablet is a great option for younger readers who aren’t quite ready for the denser reading options on the Kindle.
