I bet dollars to donuts your kids don’t want any of the toys on this list. In fact, if you show them this list and say, “Hey, do you want to ask Santa for this?” my guess is they’d shrug and say “Eh….”
We all were kids once and we know the lure of the trendy toy item; we also all know where fad toys end up….stuffed in a corner under the bed or played with for one afternoon and then discarded for another Youtube video….
But here’s a little secret….your kids do not want any of the toys I am about to mention but I bet they will end up LOVING them. Why? Because no kid can resist a good challenge, no kid can resist a puzzling game or an invitation to create something magical….I call these gifts: “Smart Toys” and my kids have never put a single one on their holiday list.
