We know, we basically have the best job, finding gifts and toys for all the good* girls and boys. We love searching for and then trying out everything from the newest and hottest trends to classics that never get old. This year, we had help with testing from our friends at Kids & Company — a company that provides high-quality, flexible childcare at locations across the country — as well as families in our own communities. The result was many happy kiddos (and more than a few additions to Santa lists, of course!).

Check back every day for new products added to our toy guide. We’ll be updating in the weeks leading up to the big day!
