Echo Dot (4th gen) kids edition

Echo Dot kids edition

Echo Dot is seriously magic! Kids can ask Alexa questions, set alarms and get help with their homework. And because a lot of us can't visit family and friends, we love that little ones can ask Alexa to call approved friends and family. We wish this was a thing when we were kids.


Goliath banana blast game

Goliath banana blast game

If your child has trouble picking up small things, try playing this game to strengthen hand and eye coordination. It's a short enough game that even young kids are able to maintain attention and focus through everyone's turn.


Wildkin table and chair set

Wildkin table and chair set

Another awesome item for a playroom or kids bedroom, this table and chair set gives little ones a place to tackle all kinds of activities and crafts. You'll love that the minimalist modern design integrates well into your existing décor. So cool.


Philips Sonicare For Kids electric toothbrush

If your little one has trouble brushing their teeth, this electronic toothbrush will be a the gift that keeps on giving. My 4-year-old and I had the best time brushing until the timer went off—it gradually builds to two minutes twice a day to train kids to brush for the dentist-recommended time. Also, the bluetooth wireless technology in the handle tells kids and mamas how long they've brushed. Basically, it's my new go-to gift for preschoolers.


Kids First Level microscope

This is the perfect hands-on toy perfect for little STEM lovers. This microscope is durable enough to withstand kid's rough hands, but technical enough to feel like an awesome grown up toy.


Cubcoats puppy down vest

Cubcoats are super cute as toys and as clothing—yep, you read that right. This is a vest that folds up into a stuffed animal you child can take anywhere. Bonus points for being machine-washable, ethically made and having tons of character and animal options to choose from.


Hijinks bird costume

Hijinks bird costume

Hijinks costumes never disappoint and this bird ensemble is no exception. The tail and wings provide just the right amount of magic to make this set one of the most-played items in their collection.


Hanna Andersson critter slippers


We love these comfy slippers. They are perfect for Christmas morning or any day of the year. And of course Hanna Anderson had matching adult pajamas so the whole family can have a PJ party (or a great photo op).


Twelve Little backpack

Twelve Little backpack

Twelve Little's leopard backpack is sure to be a favorite (and maybe even a little motivation to get back into the school groove when it's safe again). The backpack's fun colors will be a big hit and the bag is big enough to carry everything they need, but small enough for a Kindergartener to tote around.


Little Likes Kids camping outdoors puzzle

You'll be surprised at how many hours of play you'll get from this one item. It's the perfect no-mess tabletop activity. Kids will have fun identifying the components that make camping outdoors fun for every age.

We love these glitter hair slides because they allow kids to be creative and flex a bit of independence while crafting cute hairstyles. You have a winner for any girly-obsessed child.

It's a doll. It's a suitcase. It's the perfect piece of luggage for all road trips this season. It's also great for imaginative play. Need we say more?

You can do wrong with this classic boot made of environmentally friendly materials in the linings and outsole. Little feet will also love the rounded outsole that comfortably follows the natural shape of a child's foot.

This is a cute gift for a child who might be obsessed with all things bright and pretty. It's sure to help any big kid feel like they got something extra special.


Cerebelly carrot raisin smart bars

Cerebelly carrot raisin smart bars

If you're looking for a healthy stocking stuffer, may we recommend these smart bars that contain 10 brain-supporting nutrients, no added sugar and three grams of protein. We love the carrot raisin flavor because it supports brain growth in regions like the parietal lobe, which is responsible for memory retention and overall attention.

The latest version is faster, includes a full-featured Fire HD 8 tablet and a kid-proof case with built-in stand.
