Top picks for kids’ Christmas presents in 2023, include everything from a Barbie dream home to creative kit sets

The life of Josh Baskin in Tom Hanks’s 1988 film Big has fascinated us ever since we were young.

Josh, a mere tween of 13, unintentionally desires to be bigger, and as a result, he suddenly has a full adult life, a job, and enough money to buy every toy, game, and gadget he could ever want. Tom Hanks’s dancing on the walking piano and the other antics that take place in the iconic New York toy store FAO Schwarz still make us smile.

Putting growing pains and adult responsibilities aside, we’ve always dreamed of a bedroom stuffed to the gills with amazing toys and novelties from our childhood, just like Mr. Baskin. But alas, we must spend our hard-earned cash on such dull necessities as food, water, and electricity now that we’re adults.

But when children miraculously enter our lives, whether as grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, or our own, we are given a wonderful opportunity to reawaken our inner child and experience the joy of play through them.
The renaissance of toys from the ’90s and ’00s, such the Furby and the Tamagotchi, has facilitated this. Putting aside sentimentality, it is really satisfying to give our children meaningful presents during the Christmas season. In contrast to cynical adults, a child’s reaction to any gift, even an old avocado, is one of genuine wonder.

Without further ado, we present a collection of the most popular current children’s toys, electronics, and games. You can never start getting ready for December 25 too soon.
