Amazon Releases 2016 Holiday Toy List!


In a sign that things will get hot from the very first day of November, Amazon has already released their Holiday Toy List! There’s fun to be had there for children of all ages as they dream of opening the brightest, shiniest, most fabulous toy on the big day.

More importantly, it gives those of us looking for ideas for gifts a single, easy to find place to shop. With a son, a niece, and three nephews, I know it certainly helps me decide on what they might like. Every year I head to their list to see what’s fun.

This year, as always, there’s a vast variety of fun stuff to choose from, ranging from traditional toys like Lincoln Logs to the latest and highest rated kid’s tablets, and as always, featuring many, many great “learning” toys.

Every year, Amazon puts many of the items in their list on sale. In fact, they do this multiple times from the beginning of November onward. Thanks to fast shipping with Prime, many of those deals will last until late into December.

Here’s a sampling of just some of the fantastically fun items in the 2016 Amazon Holiday Toy List, listed by Age Group as they are at the site, to make it easy to find your great gift:
