This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I was paid for this post and received the included toys as compensation.
The holiday ads are arriving daily in the mail and if your kids are like mine they have been drying the ink out of their pens circling all the different things they want to ask Santa for this Christmas. Apparently they think Santa drives a semi truck.
Watching the excitement of what they want and what they want to buy each other makes me so happy though. So I rounded up the kids and we headed into Kohl’s to pick out our top Christmas toys this season your kids will want to see under the tree.
There are several things I look for when picking toys out but I like them to fall into one of these categories.
Toys to Facilitate Pretend Play-Disney Princess Rapunzel Pop-Up Palace by Hasbro
Creative play allows children start making up scenarios to build skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence without even realizing it. The great thing is, these skills are going to help them succeed later in life more than any other skills they can acquire. Since I am raising world changers this is so important.
Now I truly loved this Disney Princess Rapunzel Pop-Up Palace by Hasbro due to the ability to fold it up with its pieces and carry it around. This is perfect to take to Grandma’s house, take on vacation, or hide under the bed from sister.
Toys to Teach Life Skills – Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pizza Oven & Pasta Play Set
Kids love to mimic their parents and while I would love to hand over the reins in the kitchen and let them cook dinner tonight, I think they need a little practice first. This has so many fun pieces with enough food to feed the neighborhood. From taking orders and ordering their own food to cooking, cleaning up and paying, there are so many life skills learned by practicing what they see us do while out and about.
Another great one is the Melissa & Doug: Deluxe Pet VetCare & Grooming Play Set
Toys that Inspire them to Create – LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box Set 10698
LEGO’s mission statement is to “to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow” and if that isn’t a toy I want all over my house (except the floor at 2am) than I don’t know what is. I love that Legos can be both a solo or group effort and that they can be done with instruction booklet or not. Its so fun to watch them create these masterpieces then watch them tumble due to design flaw and then being rebuilt stronger than ever. Not to mention they bring back a sense of nastalgia that makes me want to jump into play with them.
- LEGO City Arctic Air Transport Set 60193, LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Set 75954, LEGO Jurassic World Blue’s Helicopter Pursuit Set 75928 are just a few more favorites you can find at Kohls in the toy section.
Two other brands that are also found in the huge toy selection of Kohl’s gifts that we love are Fisher-Price and Hot Wheels. They also have so many different options to consider so I am listing a few of the top ones below.
- Fisher Price: Little People Work Together Construction Site (Kohl’s Exclusive), Imaginext Batcave (Kohl’s Exclusive), Little People Disney Princess Magical Wand Palace, Imaginext Jurassic World Lab Gift Set (Kohl’s Exclusive)
- Hot Wheels: Hot Wheels Auto Lift Expressway with diecast cars (Kohl’s Exclusive), Hot Wheels City Attack Pack with track and cars! (Kohl’s gifts Exclusive)
At Kohl’s, the ability to buy online and pickup in store is truly a life saver these days with delayed shipping times and sometimes us mommas can be a little last minute.
Not to mention, not only are their prices amazing but with Kohl’s Cash you can redeem them at time of purchase for even more savings.
