Most Wanted Toys for Boys and Girls

It is that time of the year again-- the flurry and scurry to get your gifts in time for the holidays for friends and loved ones. Do the people in your holiday list include babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, kindergarteners, 5 to 10 year olds? That makes it a daunting task to pick presents that they would like.

Here is a list of gifts that are all the rage this Christmas for these youngsters that are guaranteed to bring smiles all year long.

Baby's learning laptop

Let them become tech savvy early

Babies have short span of attention and even if all they do is bash the keys and be mesmerized with the lights and music, this toy will remain a favorite two years down the road.

There are 2 volume settings. It automatically turns off after no one plays it for a while. Bright colors. 3 different learning settings. This laptop is baby-proof, meaning it can take a beating and keeps on working. Customers have reported that it has been dropped several times and still works great. Cute songs. Great carrying handle.
