  3. Hatchimals Mystery – Hatchimals made a comeback last Christmas and we can definitely see why! Young ones usually learn about the life cycle of a chick and so being able to hatch their own super fluffy Hatchimal is super exciting!

  7. Nick Jr. Paw Patrol Multi-Bin Toy Organizer by Delta – While this is not exactly a toy, it holds toys and is Paw Patrol themed – which is a win-win in our books. If you have a Paw Patrol lover in amongst your family or friends’ children we also recommend this Paw Patrol 2 in 1 Flip Open Foam Sofa, perfect for toddlers to get comfy in as they read, watch TV or eat a snack.
  8. Play-Doh Modeling Compound, 10- Pack Ah, Play-Doh. – Children can knead, roll out, and get their creative juices flowing as well as get their sensory play in as well. This 10-pack comes with an assortment of fun colors.

  10. Giraffes Can’t Dance – This is a book that contains rhyme, a lovable character, and teaches a heartwarming lesson through its story about Gerald the giraffe – a giraffe who wants nothing more to dance, but struggles to do so. It makes the perfect gift or stocking stuffer.
