Ready or not, it’s time for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! Just like every other year, there are going to be toys that will sell out (If they haven’t already), so you need to be prepared! Here are my Top Toys for 2017!

For the Boys on your list
Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit
I’m not going to lie, when I first saw this in a catalog I kind of wanted it for myself! For $99, you can create your own droid! Pretty cool if you ask me. The Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit is recommended for ages 8 and up and is one of the hottest toys of the year!
Vtech Smart Watch
This awesome watch is something that is in my “cart” to purchase for my almost 6 year old. My kids are envious of my husband and I’s Apple watch, so this is a perfect version for them to have. You can take pictures, play games, record videos and obviously tell time! It is recommended for ages 4-9 and is currently on sale for only $34.84! (Much better than the $300 Apple Watch and they come in colors for girls too!)
Nerf Rival Nemesis
For the older kids on your list (14 and up), I have a feeling this one will be a sell out! The new Nerf Rival Nemesis is fully motorized and comes equipped with 100 rounds! It is currently on sale for $77.99 and is getting 4.3 out of 5 stars!
For the Girls on your list
Why does it seem like the girl’s toys always sell out first? The Luvabella doll has been going out of stock for weeks already, so if you can find one in the store they are on sale for around $90, but if you can’t get your hands on one, they are now available from 3rd party sellers for around $140. I think to most grown-ups, they’re pretty creepy but they are supposed to be very realistic and have a personality of their own! They are recommended for ages 4-6.
I had personally been trying to track down a Fingerling since September but got lucky enough to find a friend that had extras! These darn things are already so hard to track down and are selling on eBay for more than double their original price of $15. So, if you see one… grab it! These little guys are going to be this year’s Hatchimal. Apparently, every little girl wants a little monkey to hang from their finger!
L.O.L. Big Surprise Ball
All little girls love the thrill of unboxing a surprise! This ball has 50 limited edition surprises inside with exclusive accessories and dolls! Unfortunately, this is Christmas gift is also getting really hard to find! They sell for $70 if you can find one in store or you will be paying around $120 to a third party seller on Walmart or Amazon. Keep an eye out though, you may just get lucky!
For the kids who have everything
If you’re like me, you hate seeing your kids get 50 toys for Christmas knowing that they will probably only play with 5! That’s why I like to get them an electronic type of “Big Gift” every year to cut down on all that crap that you’ll be picking up off your floor. This year, I’m all for the Amazon devices! They are affordable and they entertain all ages!
Fire HD 8 Kids Tablet
This new tablet is AMAZING! It comes with a 2-year guarantee, so if they drop it no worries!!! The Fire HD 8 also has 32gb of storage, a case, a 12-hr rechargeable battery and it comes with 1 year of Amazon’s Freetime Unlimited which my kids absolutely LOVE. The best part is, it’s great for ages 3-12 so they will be playing with this table for YEARS.
Amazon Echo Dot
We have had the famous “Alexa” in our home for 3 years now and my 7 years old is dying to have one of her own in her room. The Echo Dot is the most affordable of the Echo devices, with a regular price of $49.99. You can still ask her all the same questions and play all the same music which is all Lucy really needs to do! Amazon’s Black Friday sale will be starting November 17, 2017, and I have a feeling you’ll be able to snag one of these for $30!
Don’t forget, most online Black Friday sales will start on November 17th! Time to get shopping!
