When it comes to a favorite that I believe almost every boy and girl has played with it has to be Hot Wheels by Mattel. “Open up the unlimited world of the Track Builder System, where kids are in the driving seat of their own play experience. Creating stunts and races with an entire system that works together, kids can enjoy open-ended play and be inspired to:
- Experiment with speed and gravity to push their Hot Wheels cars to the limit
- Problem solve with built-in measuring tools and challenges
It seems that each collection of Shopkins and Little Live Pets is getting better and better each season. Moose Toys has outdone themselves again. Shopkins are making collecting and trading fun and now can be worn as bracelets too! The Little Live Pets has added turtles to their collection which comes in its own carry case too.

These bikes have been redesigned to fit a child’s proportions. They also offer Kid Trax which offers the most creative driving experience for kids with vehicles that look and sound like the real deal.
