Layout 1We are so excited to bring you this year’s Toy Insider, your holiday gift guide to the best toys for the kids in your life. The Toy Insider panel of experts has scouted out and played with the best toys and games of the holiday season to help you find the perfect gift.

This year’s guide is packed with a brand new selection of toys for children of all ages. A handy skill key is located on the bottom of each page, so you can see exactly which skills and developmental benefits kids can gain from each toy.

From baby’s first grab for the TV remote to tweens’ and teens’ pleas for the latest trendy gadget, kids love technology. Along with our Hot 20 toy selections is the Top Tech 12—a guide to the best tech toys on the shelves. We’ve got wearable tech, cool new robots, and everything in between.

The below pages contain many of our favorite toys for the holidays, but our the rest of our site includes even more—product reviews, toy trends, and tons of giveaways! You can also watch videos of Toy Insider Mom Laurie Schacht talking about and demonstrating many of our selections, as well as our adorable Toy Insider Kids telling you what they think of the hottest toys this season.
