The 10 best toys… you didn’t know existed

Around this time of year, we always see the hottest, must have toys to get your child. It’s no fun if everyone has the same thing, right? I like new toys that are just on the market. Sure, it’s nice to see your child’s face on Christmas morning when they get what they’ve been asking for for months, but it’s even better when they get something they didn’t know they wanted and end up loving. These toys may not fly off the shelves, but they will be a blessing for many shoppers. Here is my list of the 10 best toys… you didn’t know existed.
