Somehow, this holiday feels to begin earlier than ever before-maybe it's just that this year we need this magic and cheer more than usual! In order to make the ubiquitous little faces shine, Romper is happy to launch the toy box, which is our best toy of the year for children of all ages. Each item listed below was carefully planned by our parenting editorial team and our toughest critics, our children. Whether you want to fill sacks with things to enlarge, wink, sing and hug, or are determined to find a special toy that your child will treasure forever (or at least until next year), you will find more than 100 winners here.
Now we know that even Santa Claus is not 100% correct, but if all of our own children's research time (read: playing) and smiles show any signs, we think we have almost done it.
We only include products independently selected by the Romper editorial team. However, if you purchase products through the links in this article, we may receive a portion of the sales.
What gift should I give the baby? The best baby toys can attract their attention for more than two seconds, age-appropriate, fun but not overly exciting. The toys in this group look comfortable and will activate the baby’s brain in more than one way: a Disney-themed recycling truck will help them practice fine motor skills, a kind of book based on Mo William’s pigeon. A pop-up toy series featuring famous birds will teach Baby causality, and a simple selfie camera with rabbit doodles will arouse a lot of laughter from children.
This is a durable toy that provides endless ways to play. Divide this friendly-looking robot into three parts.

The little guys can cleverly place the spoon on JJ's mouth and watch the peas disappear to feed JJ. When they put the spoon back in the bowl, the spoon will be refilled with more vegetables to feed JJ.
Hape Magic Touch Piano was manufactured in collaboration with Baby Einstein and was part of the first musical instruments (drums and guitars are also provided), designed to introduce music to babies and toddlers. There are several ways to play: as a traditional piano or accompanying song cards, to teach children how to follow the music by recognizing colors instead of actual notes. The keyboard can also recognize individual song cards and play advanced versions of tunes when prompted.
Children of this age really start to let their personality shine. Your special recipient may be very content to sit quietly next to the popper on XL's fingertips (and honestly, the same is true).

Maybe their favorite person (except you, of course) is a friendly postman. These toys answer all these personalities and so on.

Chuckle & Roar hired an occupational therapist to design activities for this sensory box, which really provided hours of entertainment, including sand, letters, plastic bugs, tweezers, crumpled paper, water drops, etc. Kids will love digging in the trash can and doing various suggested activities over and over again (50!), as well as becoming hooligans and coming up with some fun ways to play on their own. All the pieces can be put back in the blue trash can.
At this age, interactive toys, surprise toys and technology products can't go wrong.

Last year's "The Child" toy was so popular for good reasons-people were tired of Grogu's cute face, manners and voice, especially when it was translated into a lifelike doll. This year's interactive Grogu responded to a series of accompanying accessories (a bowl of purple tentacles, a beautiful French macarons, a variable speed knob and a spoon) and will express his happiness or dissatisfaction with each item. What's even more lovely is that-if it is possible-Grogu would raise his arms when he wanted to be picked up. Yes, like a child literally.
