Every month, I’ll recap the hottest toys for kids ages 0-13 based on Amazon popularity and, of course, will throw in personal choice picks culled from my own gifting that month. So whether you’re looking for a birthday gift, new sibling gift, graduation present, tooth fairy surprise or just want to make someone’s day special, here’s what’s cool right now for itty-bitty newborns to the toddler set, for preschoolers to grade schoolers, all the way up to tweens and (*gasp*) early teens. Then toys are not cool. Try these other guides on skulls and spikes instead.
NOTE: Prices listed are the manufacturer list price, and do not necessarily reflect the current purchase price on Amazon (read: AMZ is possibly cheaper–and always changing–so don’t let sticker shock stop you…check it out and see).
My July Toy Picks
Get Soaked: My kids loved the Nerf Lightening Storm ($29.99) and Super Soaker Electro Storm ($11.99) both were reviewed by Gizmodo as two of the best water guns of the summer (2nd and 3rd place, respectively–I know what you’re going to ask and #1 projects 40 feet vs. 25 which is prohibitive in a NYC playground) and if you’re not near a pool or lake it’s a great way to beat the heat.
