It’s that time of year again where we need to start planning for the holiday season, this includes the gift buying. Shopping for your family and friends can be so fun, but sometimes a little stressful. Buying gifts for others can be tricky depending on how close you are to the individual and their age. One of the hardest age groups to shop for is kids. When you don’t have kids of your own or your kids have grown up and left the house it can be hard to keep up on the hottest toys or interest of the younger generations. Lucky for you, we have done our research and have a list of today’s hottest toys and games that the children in your life will love!

Elementary age kids can be a hard group to shop for. The younger ones are full of creativity and imagination but the older kids tend to get more into technology, sports or other hobbies. Knowing the best route to go with the kids in your life may be hard. Are they still into toys or have they outgrown that phase of life already. Listed below are a few ideas to help you find a gift the kids in your life will love!

Because you can only fit so many masterpieces on the fridge, the light up drawing tee is a comfy cotton t-shirt that gives kids’ drawings a new place to shine. The luminescent ink panel will glow when any concentrated light source shines on it revealing a bold piece of temporary art. The shirt comes with a mini light wand to make drawing easier.

This kit comes with a pile of familiar hardware such as nuts, bolts and screws and some detailed instructions that allow you to create an adorable, geeky robot. These robots are built from high-quality steel, non-toxic, painted parts that get you to think outside the box and design homemade creations from old pieces of hardware. Once complete the kids can use their own creativity to make other goofy creations.

The 90’s are back and the favorite tech gadget by Fujifilm is back with their mini camera. The kit comes with everything you would need including film, special selfie filter, cuter sticker border and more. Kids will love their new camera that prints instantly to show their friends!
