Christmas is coming and it is also birthday season in our house. We have one boy with the birthday the end of September, one in November and one about 10 days before Christmas. We get through all the birthdays, then have Christmas and then can rest a bit. So with all the birthdays and Christmas coming, the boys are talking about what they would really like. I thought I would share the top 5 gifts they are interested in this year. This is also the first year that LEGOS are not the main star. Sure, they have mentioned some sets but nothing like the last few years.
So here are the top five toys that my 4, 7 and 10 year old boys have talked about wanting this year…
1) Disney INFINITY2.0.– My son got this for his birthday in September and it has gotten a lot of use since then. Disney Infinity 2.0 is the latest version of the game, The first version came out in 2013. It is the same idea as Skylanders where you play the characters that you have within the game. You put them on the portal and then start to play. There are quite a few available now and you can use the characters from the first game with the second one. We have quite a few of the characters. Right now Mickey, Hero and Bay Max are the favorites. I like this game because of all the characters. It is fun for the kids and I love hearing them talk about Disney. If you are on the fence about buying this for your kids, go ahead and do so. They will love it. If you are trying to decide between this and Skylanders, I would go with this one.
2) LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham – This is the latest Lego game to come out and the third one in the Batman series. You can get free demos on the Xbox 360 so that is what we usually do before we would buy the game. They are really looking forward to this one because you can change the Batman suits at anytime during the game and that is supposed to be a very cool thing to do.
3) Lego Minecraft sets- Like I said before, it isn’t 100% Lego this year but they have expressed interested in the Minecraft sets. These look like a lot of fun and I am glad they came out with some new ones. You can also get the game Minecraft for under $20 these days. At the time that I am writing this it is just $17.99 on Amazon.
4) Power Ranger Keys– My boys started talking about these and I didn’t know what they meant but then my 4 year old bought some with his birthday money. They have about 60 keys you can get and they work with a few different Power Ranger toys. Who would have thought Power Rangers would still be popular these days? The keys make sounds and light up. A lot of fun if you have little Power Ranger fans.
5) Skylanders Trap Team –Every year Skylander comes out with a new game. The good thing is that you can use the old characters on the new game. This year they came out with trap team. The whole purpose of it is to trap the villians. You defeat the villian and then put the “trap” on the portal for more fun. If you have a Skylander fan in your home, they are probably asking for this. My son thinks it is going to be amazing!
Have you decided what your kids are getting for Christmas or Hanukkah this year?
