Finding the Right Toy Gifts at Best Buy

That’s right! Best Buy has a large selection of the holiday’s hottest toys for kids 3 and up. And with the Best Buy Holiday Toy Catalog, you can easily get some understanding of your child’s wishes and get a jump start on your holiday shopping. Also, consider these tips for finding the right toy gifts as you begin making your own holiday shopping list this year:

  • For toddlers: safety and age-appropriateness are the most important factor in buying a toy
  • For grade-school kids: collectibles based on the child’s interests, as well as dolls and action figures can be a safe—but winning—choice
  • For teenagers: drones, robots or remote-control toys could be a perfect fit for those interested, otherwise electronics such as cameras or gaming systems could bring plenty of holiday cheer

But, in addition to the hottest interactive tech, think back to your own childhood. Building sets, board games, stuffed animals and outdoor toys still make excellent gift choices… and can all be found at Best Buy. For example, the Barbie Dreamhouse is still on my girls’ lists AND available at Best Buy. Furthermore, why not mix the nostalgic with the modern a buy something like a LEGO Star Wars playset. Or, throw a bit of educational value into the idea of play through a selection of STEM and science toys. These toys allow your child to learn concepts such as robotics and coding through play.

Our girls were each able to find their favorite picks as they thumbed through the Holiday Toy Catalog. For Jaci, a huge fan of Star Wars, decided that the Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid was her top pick. As an app-enabled toy, it provides users with plenty of fun things to do. For example, these two toys can be driven by the app and explore different environments. Through the app, you can also have them do their signature moves and make the noises that you’ve grown to know and love. Best of all, these droids move faster than most Star War remote-controlled toys on the market making them a highly attractive option for Star War fanatics. For those Star Wars fanatics who want a highly authentic toy for their collection, these are fabulous options for you.
