LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The countdown until Christmas has begun and with only a few weeks left, it’s time to start thinking of gift ideas for the children.
If you have no idea what the kids are into these days, several outlets have released lists of the top holiday toys of the season.
10. Ryan’s World Giant Mystery Egg: With the popularity of the Hatchimals still going strong, this mystery egg embraces the concept of not knowing what’s inside, except this time, you won’t expect an animal; the toy will be a surprise from a plethora of choices. Target.com says it’s based on Ryan Toys Review, the most popular kids YouTube channel on the planet. The toy is for ages three - six years old. It retails around $40, but hurry, the toy has been selling out quickly. Walmart has the current cheapest price at $34.82. Take a look at Ryan’s channel HERE.
9. Fingerlings HUGS/Fingerlings UNTAMED: Walmart describes the first version of the toy as interactive pets that love to hang onto your finger, blink their eyes, turn their heads, blow kisses, swing by their tails, and talk in monkey babble. The other is a special cage that comes with Infrared, an exclusive dinosaur with eyes that glow in the dark and a fierce desire to escape. The toys retail for around $10 and $20. Walmart.com has them for the cheapest at $9.99 and $19.97. Watch the commercials HERE and HERE.
