But my 6-year-old loves this game! He has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and so many games are frustrating because they require dexterity and coordination, something people with EDS lack. The old school games really are beneficial for kids with motor control issues and he can feel successful!" —The_Koo

    Promising review: "This toy is adorable! I gave it to my grandnephew for his first birthday. He does not yet understand that it will repeat what he says but his face lights up and he loves pushing the collar and paws to see flashing lights and hear songs. His older sisters, age 2 and 4 also love playing with it. The 4-year-old happily exclaimed 'He flaps his ears!! He's alive!!! I love him!' In the end this was a gift for all three kids." —FancyNancy

    A diagram of all the things the Squeakee dog can do

    Promising review: "My son loves playing with this toy. Normally he plays with a toy one day and forgets about it the next day, but not this toy. It's so cute and very durable, I do keep an extra eye on him just so he won't lose the accessories but that's expected. I'm glad I purchased it, I only wish I would've held off to gift it to him for Christmas. Great find!" —Jacinda Nicole Moore

    A child sitting inside of the pod in pink and blue

    Promising review: "Like many of us, I'm at home now trying to homeschool. It's tough with a sensory seeking kid that can no longer go to playgrounds or see his Occupational Therapist. I bought this out of a desperate gambit for calming mechanisms at home. He loves it and will go sit in it a few minutes with a tablet until he feels relaxed enough to come out and not hurt himself with jitters, spinning, etc. Great product for managing spectrum issues at home." —Kindle Customer

    A child playing the Loog guitar in yellow

    Promising review: "I got this for my son's 5th birthday. He has been obsessed with music and musical instruments, especially stringed instruments like the ukulele and guitar since he was a little baby. His father's side of the family has musical talent, but my side definitely does not. He was thrilled to get it and plays it constantly, and I am thrilled to be able to learn through the program with him and help him with it." —Katie D.

    Get it from Loog for $79 (available in six colors).

    14. A set of construction pieces to level up their fort building. They can create tunnels, castles, and more. Toss a sheet over it and they've just upgraded their studio fort into a three bedroom condo. Now there's room to invite you over.


    Promising review: "We have two sets and my daughter is asking for a third. She's been playing with these building sets from the age of 5, and is still enjoying them at almost 7-years-old. She has used these sets to build some amazing forts with doorways, steepled roofs, window space, and fenced in back areas. I help drape the blankets over the structures she builds, and one time we used safety pins to get the blankets to fit more exactly. Each building set came with a light, so the two lights she has now are perfect for lighting her more spacious forts. She reads to her dolls and generally has a great time in each new fort configuration." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $41.20 (originally 49.99).

    15. A set of tobbles that'll balance, nest, spin, and stack giving your mini giftee playtime filled with imaginative play and sensory exploration.


    Promising review: "The toy is colorful and durable. Our baby granddaughter (6 months) loved having us stack the parts up so she could knock them over! As she gets older, I'm sure she'll start doing the stacking. The pieces fit together in many different ways, so there's plenty of room for her to use her imagination!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

    16. A Funkoverse DC Comics board game for the comic-lovers who are always down for a good strategy game.


    Promising review: "Funkoverse delivers an amazing game that is fun for all ages! The Funko pops included in the game are solid. I played the game several times in public places and people would stop to see what I was playing because they recognized the characters from far away. The game has a lot of replay ability because of the different scenarios that are in each game and the double-sided game boards. The four scenarios each have different objectives. Many rulebooks are often hard to follow, but the game easy to learn with their step-by-step guide and their glossary of terms. Highly recommend this game to play with your kids, but it was also just as fun playing with my adult friends!" —Tricia Sydney

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (originally $39.99).

    A teenager taking a block off of the Jenga tower

    Promising review: "This Jenga game is awesome. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my class. My students range from fourth- to eighth-graders and they went completely nuts when I brought the game out. It is a great classroom activity and I can see it being a hit at parties and with families. One of my students commented on how good the wood smells (she said it smells like Elmer's white glue, which she and all of my students like). The only caution I have to share is, when the tower falls, you may not want to be sitting near it since the whole thing weighs about 30 pounds. I highly recommend this game. If you like Jenga, then you will love this truly huge version. Each block is 7.12 inches long, 2.38 inches wide, and 1.38 inches tall." —Benjamin Adriano

    Get it from Amazon for $118.59 (originally $129.99).

    19. A Little Tikes Pet Checkup Playset because they've always wanted to be a veterinarian and now they can practice by caring for all of their stuffed animals.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter — age 8. She is usually only allowed to use butter knives but she likes to cook so I wanted her to be able to chop and cut up food. This is a sturdy knife. It's sharp but I don't think it would cut off your finger. Also holding the shield gets the kid's hand in the habit of being in the proper position for cutting — with your fingertips curled under a bit." —KT

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    21. A pair of pencil and notebook earrings for a little ~back to school~ fashion even though it's more like back to Zoom.

    The pencil and notebook earrings

    22. A retro TV Bluetooth speaker they'll think is the coolest thing ever. Not only is the sound great, this tiny tube also has an alarm, games, and an app that lets you create your own pixel art.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best Bluetooth speaker. The sound is crystal clear and it can get loud for its size. The pixel art animation is amazing with the ability to control from your phone or from the speaker itself. It has games, alarm, sleep mode, create your own pixels, create your own music and the list goes on. Once my friends saw this and what it can do they all bought one as well. You will be absolutely satisfied with this purchase!" —Jeff

    Get it from Amazon for $59 (available in four colors).

    23. A Maleficent card game that'll have the whole family playing for keeps — that is to keep the coveted Maleficent Pop! figure.

    Promising review: "I have an autistic 9-year-old who loves to chew any soft fabrics which has led to him chewing the necks off of shirts, cuffs of long sleeved shirts, and making holes in blankets from chewing on them. These chew bands have been the best and such a godsend. They are heavy duty and my son loves to chew on them! We loved them so much I ordered another six pack of them, and may get one more six pack since he does end up using two to three of these a day between home and school. I just throw them in a small laundry garnet bag to wash them, and have had no problems!" —John J. Salyer

Mia comes with a bottle that converts to a pacifier, an interactive spoon that requires batteries, and a plate of food. You simply place the spoon on a type of food on her plate and Mia will identify it! Once you are done feeding her, there is a button on her back that allows you to burp her. She also has a button on her chest that makes her laugh. She can sense when she's being rocked and will fall asleep in your child’s arms. Mia is absolutely adorable and would make a perfect gift!" —Brian "SpookYouLaterz" Lubecki

    Get it from Amazon for $58.99.

    34. A coding robot so you can introduce children to the wild world of coding at a young age. They'll be programming robots to do their chores before you know it.

    Promising review: "My kids (ages 4, 7, 9, and 11) have all been having fun playing with this robot. It’s easy to set up, and I love how even preschool-aged kids can use it (no reading necessary). All you do to program the robot is press the directional arrows to control the robot’s movements. The set also comes with flags, obstacles, and fun tiles to make courses. Great STEM toy and intro to coding concepts. My older kids were able to do more complex functions like if/then statements and there is a short manual that explains everything and gives example challenges. Highly recommend!" —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $76.49.

    35. An interactive family game that'll have them hanging on for dear life.

    The game

    This game is so fun. Think of it like Twister mixed with Bop It. In a nutshell, you follow the directions, whether the game tells you to grab a color, press a color, or high-five your opponent without letting go of your other hand. You've got to hold on. You can play by yourself, or with friends and family. I have a pretty big family so we just take turns playing. When someone loses, we swap in the next person waiting to play. It says ages 8 and up, but my 7-year-old nephew can play so I'd just use your judgement.

    Get it from Amazon $24.99.

    36. A Super Mario Lego set with a Super Mario figure that'll actually blink and make noise as they play with it.

    Two children playing with the Super Mario Lego set

    Promising review: "This set is great for one big reason — the Mario figure is awesome! I got this set for my for my 9-year-old nephew's birthday. As I watched him put it together, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the figure makes sounds and even the eyes are digitally blinking. As a kid, I grew up playing Nintendo. Hearing the sounds of Mario jumping, bopping goombas, and escaping down pipes just made me feel happy. Now I’m seriously considering getting the set myself." —TakosTuesday

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95.

    Two children playing with the interactive baby yoda

    Promising review: "This little guy is precious! He is the same size as the talking Child from Hasbro that came out earlier this year, but this animatronic version is amazing! The first thing to note is to move the switch on its back to on instead of demo. When I carried it upstairs, The Child looked up at me, wiggled it’s ears and would giggle! When I laid it down, it closed its eyes and made snoring sounds. Bonus: It does “the magic hand thing!” This a great gift for The Child/Baby Yoda fan in your life and just in time for season two of The Mandalorian." —McJingles

    Promising review: "I just received my skates today, adjusted the wheels, and took them out for a test run in my driveway. I love them! It took 12 days from the order date to arrive (I live in California, so it might take a little longer if you are Middle America or East Coast). The box is so pretty, and my skates looked picture perfect. I’m looking forward to re-learning how to skate!" —Ashley E

I can use them for an hour straight and they will be at around 90%. The sound quality is great. It provides a crisp clear sound and there is also I a good amount of bass. For the price it's definitely worth it." —Jose J. Roman

    Promising review: "I am a preschool teacher, and I am super pleased with these bears! The tweezers are very easy for my students to manipulate. My two-year-old can use them to sort the bears into the colored cups. A huge bonus came when the seller sent me free printable activity pages to use with the bears.

    Promising review: "This is the most adorable bed set I’ve found especially for the money. Far better bang for the buck than other brands, and so much softer.

    Promising review: "I loved it! Ordered Animals and Monsters kits. Each kit comes with 18 cans of different colors, that are very bright. You can use the fun interactive app (very simple and kid-friendly) to make the figures or just your own imagination :) The best part is how light and NONSTICKY this clay is — no mess or sticky fingerprints ha ha. It is clay though and unlike Play-Doh you won't be able to reuse it later (it will harden) unless you put it back in the cans right away. Overall it is a great product for both kids and adults to encourage creativity and have some quality time making things as a family. I'd definitely recommend." —Daria

    50. A crab toss-and-grip game for an indoor and outdoor game of catch.

    The crab catchers and balls

    Promising review: "This product is great! Far superior to any other Velcro catching game we've had. It comes with two crabs and two sticky Velcro balls. Pretty big surface area to aim at. It straps on to your hand and functions very much like a baseball glove. It seems like it will hold up nicely despite hard use. If it continues being used at this rate I would have no problem buying another set in the next couple of months for the bargain price. Big fan!" —A. Diacogiannis

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    53. A slime kit, because who doesn't love slime?

    The slime kit

    This jumbo slime kit comes with 18 different colored slimes, three shaping and cutting utensils, two plastic straws, 12 glitter packs, two bags of sugar paper, three bags of beads, and six bags of foam balls.

    Promising review: "So wasn't exactly sure what to expect when opening the box but was pleasantly surprised to see that all the slime was already pre-made. Basically pick the colors you want or color dump them out of the included packages and then start creating your own customizable slime. It comes with glow in the dark powder, many different kinds of foam beads, and an assortment of different accessories from glitter to other stuff you can add to your slime which adds bulk and your own customizable slime flare. My boys loved it and we'll be ordering more for them. It also wasn't as messy as I thought it would be so that was an added bonus. We put kraft paper down on our table to catch any drips and there wasn't many at all. Great value for what we paid." —D. Hansen

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (originally $39.99).

    54. A VTech digital camera for young creators that even comes with a green screen to make fun photos and videos.

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a birthday gift for my 9-year-old daughter and it was an instant hit as she’s been into making videos to share with her friends during our time sheltering in place." —Ril3ybear

    Get it from Target for $49.49.

    55. A surprise pet with even more surprising hair that reveals itself with warm water.

    Each pet comes with a surprise face design, surprise hair, a salon chair, and six accessories.

    Promising review: "This is actually a great quality and very interactive toy for the price! The entire process is very fun and has a lot of cute details. It was a mystery which pet I would get and I was excited to get the Lady Gigi pet as I’m a huge fan of Lady Gaga. She starts off with a hair net/towel and once you put her in the salon chair and add hot water, the towel essentially disappears to reveal luscious rainbow hair! I also love that you can do her makeup and it reveals another adorable rainbow detail. Soooo cute! Great for young girls!" —KL329

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    56. A smart pad with 12 smart games that can give preschoolers a fun alternative to their tablet. Technically, it's screen free and they can still learn their colors, patterns, ABCs, and numbers.

    Promising review: "This product is fantastic. It uses an LED display to interactively teach letters, numbers, colors and even coding! There are also various games for each learning category as well as some games that use motion sensors for the play. Another bonus is that this toy has English and Spanish which can be selected. So much content in one toy! If you are looking for a quality educational preschool toy, this is a great choice. We love it." —Xeve Silver

    Get it from Amazon for $29.60 (originally $34.99).

    57. An emotions Duplo set that'll allow the child to have fun building and help them express their feelings, too.

    The emotions DUPLO set

    Promising review: "This is great for any young preschooler struggling with their emotions. It can also be used with Autism Spectrum Disorder for recognizing emotions and facilitating talks about emotions. I believe you can make eight Emotion builds. It is big enough for a few children to use it at the same time. My son likes it but not as much as the Tech Machines Set." —Bea Nu

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95.

    58. Some LED strip lights because they've just spent a week learning that new dance challenge and they can't film it, without their stage lights. They're trying to go viral! 🙄

    The blue LED lights

    Promising review: "I really like these LED lights, and the range of color is great. It changes the whole experience of a room with its colors. It is very attractive. I've had other lights from other places, so I can assure you that the quality of these lights are really good and they last very long. The packaging was good too. It has a good stick to it which makes it easy to put it on any surface you want — behind a tv or on your wall. The remotes are easy to use and have DIY slots for your favorite colors!" —Kashav Piya
