Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Shopping for kids isn't always as easy as it may seem. Before the holiday season rolls around, take a look at these top 5 gifts for kids this Christmas.

Kid Tough Tablets

Just like adults, kids like to get in on the latest technology as well. Vtech and Leapfrog are two of the leading brands that make kid tough products including learning tablets. The tablets can download apps or use cartridge games for play or learning. The games and apps do have an additional cost, but it is one way to ensure that your child will not get bored after playing the same games for just a few weeks. These kid tough products are also made to withstand the occasional drop and every day use from young children.

The top tablets are InnoTab 2 from Vtech, and LeapPad 2 from Leapfrog. These are going to be massive this Christmas, so try to get your hands on them sooner rather than later.

Nintendo Wii U

The release date and exact price of the Nintendo Wii U hasn't been announced but most people speculate that it will be released in November of 2012 and will cost at least $250. This device resembles a computer tablet but is actually a high tech controller. You can play Wii games on it without the use of your TV. You can also make video calls, surf the web and use it with your existing Wii games to give you different viewpoints of old games and it also gives you special features and functions that can only be used with this controller.

Action Figures

Some of the most popular movies this year include The Avengers and Batman and with these movies, new action figures have been released. In addition to the traditional plastic toys, Lego versions of these characters have also been created.

Dolls

Barbies are always a good choice, but for a more modern doll, Bratz and Monster High Dolls are also a good choice. If you have a girl that likes to build, Lego Friends put a cool spin on this traditional “boy” toy. They combine doll like figurines with the lego building blocks in more feminine colors.

Power Wheels Dune Racer

Power Wheels Dune Racer is an amazing release from the famous toy producer, Fisher-Price. It is an off-road vehicle, which kids will love instantly. They can approach driving action in a fun and safe way and the Monster Traction driving system enables rides on rough terrain, wet grass or hard surfaces. Kids over the age of three will be able to drive it without problems.

Furby 2012

Over 10 years since their first release date, Furbies are back and ready for action. The toy performs the same basic functions as the original, but with more of a high tech twist. With the help of an iPhone, you can how feed your Furby and translate his language using Furby Apps. Furby can now dance and show more emotion by moving his ears and eyes with a digital display. The Furby is bound to sell out, so get your orders in fast!
