For ages kids have loved and been interested in dinosaurs. Kids have also always been early adopters of technology and thrill over run "robotic" toys and things like RC toys

Nothing has changed.

Kids still love dinosaurs, they still love robots, and like a Reese's peanut butter cup, you can now meld these two interests into one gift. Seriously, robotic dinosaurs, does it get any cooler than that?

Melding technology with the fossilized kids toys in this great kids gadget really makes me wish I was a young boy once again to get a cool present like this one!

Cool Child Gift ideas for 2014

Perfect Small 2014 Christmas Gifts for Kids (8-14)

There are a lot of cool gifts you can get for kids this Christmas season. There are some big ones that all kids love and some smaller toys that you may not have thought of. Here are a few of my personal favorite ideas that you may never have thought. These are some nifty toys that some kids 8-14 might enjoy, that you may not have already added to your kids Christmas gift shopping list.

Snap Circuits SC-300 -Educational and Science Game

Crayola Light Designer Fun Game/Toy for Kids

Nerf N-Strike Maverick - Colors May Vary

Best Kids Board Games

Top Fun Board Games

Board games are always a good choice for kids gifts. They are fun, enjoyable and something that you can use with them for some family time play.

I cannot underestimate the importance of this. Buying your kids a present they love is great, but getting to spend some precious family time with them is even more important. I have a heap of board games; some that I bought for myself years ago and some that I bought for the kids.

Depending on your child's age, these games may or may not be fun for you personally. I mean how fun is "Candyland" or "Chutes and Ladders" for an adult? But seeing the fun you kids have make it all worthwhile.

If you child is a little bit older, however you can have games where you enjoy them having fun AND you enjoy the game play itself. Total win-win!

If your kid is older than 10 years old, the game pictured here is a great one. It is a fun strategy game. I have to say this is one of my favorites. It is not hard to play, but the randomization means you can play it again and again with new results every time.

Fun Kids Guitar Toys

Playable T-Shirts

Cool kids gadgets and toys

Boy, do I ever wish I had one of these playable air guitar shirts when I was young. I think this is a really nifty toy. If you child loves music and guitars, they might love it too!

A cool kids Gadget

* Kids L - 13- 16 years 74-100 lbs

* For every child who wants to be a rock god

* Not a toy with pre-recorded sounds, really functions as a working guitar to create your own sounds and music

* All major chords are available and recorded from real guitar

* Even comes with it's own pick for strumming

Skyanders: Swap Force

Skylanders kids toys and video game
Skylanders kids toys and video game

Skylander's is a video game and more, and one of the hottest games for kids around these days.

Swap Force is the newest of this popular series of games, just being released in late November 2013.

This is a battle and quest game rolled into one. It is playable with the basic game system, but you unlock all sorts of cool characters and powers by buying new action figures, which in turn unlock choices and playable characters in the game.

SO this is a video game and a series of action figures, doing double duty for your kids.

A pretty novel idea if you ask me!

Cuddleuppets New Sully Monsters University

Cuddleuppet Puppet Blanket

This is a nifty little toy for little kids. I know I got one for my daughter last year, and she simply loved it. They are perfectly sized for a child and come in quite a few different styles and shapes.

The original run of these toy/blankets were just based on cute and colorful animals, such as the pink poodle, yellow dog and blue elephant.

This year they still have all the original choices, but they also have a few more. Cuddleuppets also offer puppet blankets based on a large series of popular characters, from Spiderman to Sully (from the "Monsters" movies) -pictured here.

Fun Plush "Microbes"

Cute and cuddly kids toys

Yes, you can get the common cold, but not get sick

These Microbe plush toys are a fun and exciting way for your kids to learn. Every budding junior scientists will love these life-like microbes, that also have a fun and cuddly design. Even when the kids don't understand "what" the toy represents they will find then a neat little plush toy.

The large pictured microbe is the "Common Cold"

      I wouldn't consider "cards against humanity" a kids game. I've played it, it's more of a graphic adult game. Such a fun game though.

      @anonymous: I did have a problem with my kids leappad after about 7 months. BUT I had no issues with customer service. They just had me write "broken" on it in sharpie, send them a picture and they sent me a new one.

      Sorry your experience was not as good as mine.

      If your little ones love playing with the iPad like mine do then picking up a Little Techie iPad Holder at Toys R Us is such a great gift. It's just adorable and can hold the iPad at the perfect angle and height - perfect for little kids. It keeps the iPad safe and gives easy access for kids to watch their shows or play games.

      So perfect for infants on their bellies too!

      We love the Leapfrog Explorer however the Leappad was the biggest waste of money EVER. We bought tye Leappad for our 5 year old son. We had the Leappad 4 months then without any reason it wouldn't work anymore. We could hear but could see nothing. Leapfrog is not willing to work with you on issues and our game was not dropped or destroyed in any way. Buyer beware DO NOT waste your money on a Leappad that will only last a few months.
