21 Christmas Gifts That Your Kids Are Wishing For

Will Santa Bring These Goodies With Him?

As an adult, it can be very easy to take for granted how easy it is to shop for kids Christmas presents. While a lot of the things they want can get kind of pricey, at least you know what they want.

Adults?

It seems like Target/Amazon gift cards are the safest bet.

The only problem with kids gifts is that things are always changing. Toy fads change quicker than clothes’ fads!

In this post, I’ve compiled some of the more popular toy items that kids have been requesting this year. Hurry, some of them might already be sold out because that is just what happens with toys in the 21st Century for some reason.

Awesome Christmas Gifts for Kids

Now, just because I wrote this list I don’t want you to think that you need to buy gifts for kids for them to have a Merry Christmas. Everyone is in a completely different situation.

This list is merely meant to provide you with some ideas if you’re feeling stumped.

Teddy Ruxpin

I had a Teddy Ruxpin when I was a kid back in the 80s. You had to stick a cassette tape (remember those?!) into its back to make it talk.

It was pretty slick but I remember never having batteries around to make it work.

Well, this is the new version because everything that is old is new again apparently. Of course this one connects to your tablet and also has LCD eyes that offer over 40 different animations.

My Teddy Ruxpin just moved his mouth in the same way over and over again.

L.O.L Surprise! Bag

LOL Surprise Bag

Now, I don’t know about you but I’m not excited about buying something and not knowing what is inside but that is exactly how these surprise bags work.

You buy them and you never know what you’re going to get.

What happens if you buy 5 of them and 4 of the things are the same? That’s just too risky for my tastes but kids apparently love these things.

Crazy kids.

LUVABELLA Baby Doll

LUVABELLA Baby Doll

Baby dolls will never go out of style. They just end up becoming more realistic to the point where you actually do get sleep deprivation due to the crazy hours they are up.

I hope I’m not around for when that time comes.

Hatchimals Surprise

I’m telling you, this surprise stuff is all over the place.

Fisher-Price Zoom ‘n Crawl Monster Toy

Ah, something for the really young ones. No surprise here. Simple and clean fun that is great as long as you don’t lose all of the balls.

Don’t lose the balls.

FurReal Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger

FurReal Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger

You could either adopt a real cat or get this one.

That’s as far as I’m going to go with this one.

Soggy Doggy Board Game

Soggy Doggy Board Game

Board games rule! I’ll be honest and let you know I have no idea what this one is about but it looked adorable so I figured I would add it to the list.

What’s the worst thing that can happen? You get a cute stuffed dog.

Works for me.

Jubmo Lemon Squishie

Squishies.

These things are all the rage.

They’re just squishy foam that comes in different shapes and sizes. I think they’re more for adults and stress but apparently, kids have taken them over and now kids want them all.

The problem is it would be literally impossible to get them all because they come in almost every shape and size!

Playhut Thomas the Train Play Vehicle

Playhut Thomas the Train Play Vehicle

Kind of amazing how some kids’ characters stay around forever right? Thomas is one of them.

Just think, in a couple of years kids won’t even know that this is a train. Trains don’t even look like this anymore.

Thomas is going to have to become a Tesla or something soon.

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Smart Cycle

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Smart Cycle

I seriously thought this was a gag gift.

An exercise bike for kids that lets them watch TV. Sure the TV is supposed to be used for learning but this seems silly.

I’m getting 3.

LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox

I mean come on, it’s LEGOs. That’s all you need to know.

Melissa & Doug Giant Unicorn Stuffed Animal

What’s so special about this?

It’s a unicorn and unicorns are always special.

Tickle Me Elmo

Tickle Me Elmo

I was hesitant to include this but it’s Tickle Me Elmo. It will appear on lists like this until a meteor hits Earth and evaporates all of us.

Elmos will still be around but the lists won’t be.

Enchantimals Lorna Lamb Doll

Enchantimals Lorna Lamb Doll

I don’t know if this is a person that is part lamb that also has a lamb as a pet or what but it’s cute so it makes the list.

Throw 'N' Pop Pikachu and Poké Ball

Pokémon is always fun. It’s been around for decades and knowing Nintendo it will last longer than Tickle Me Elmo.

This is a cool little toy to put under the tree.

Christmas Should Be About Love

I don’t want to go into a whole Christmas spiel, but don’t get so caught up in the gifts you buy your kids. Be sure they understand the value of love and togetherness.

They’ll have enough marketing messages coming into their life letting them know how important materialism is. You don’t need to pile on to that.
