Top Amazon Picks for kids


For the past two years I have been using Amazon to do my Christmas shopping for the kids. Usually I begin by going to Barnes and Noble, I LOVE their toy selection, and the kids and I pick out some fun toys and books. I snap pics of each item with my iPhone. I then go home and find it on Amazon for sometimes half the price. I make a Wishlist on Amazon. Then both grandmothers buy their selections for the kids from the Wishlist. They have to go into my account, but then add their own credit card info. The packages can be shipped for free right to where ever you are celebrating Christmas. No lines, no lugging the packages to another state, and best of all: YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE GETTING. I stress this point. More than often my kids are given toys that either loose their attention by day 3, break, or just weren't made to live with Austin. I like using Amazon because I pick out the toys. I know what is coming into my home. After the grandmothers buy their gifts for the kids, Jay and I buy what is left on the Wishlist. Some of you may have seen my Instagram post of all my gifts wrapped and packed up to go. Even though we are traveling this year to Maryland, I didn't want to burden my grandparents with receiving and wrapping all the gifts, so I am lugging them. But it's ok. I wanted to see everything. One last note: I want to mention that you may be thinking it sounds like our kids get a lot of stuff. I can not deny that they are spoiled by other relatives, but Jay and I literally got them three gifts each, which will be "From Santa". I do get little stuff for their stockings, this year that consisted of: art supplies, goggles, fun band aids for playing doctor, and lollipops. So, here is our list:

* Please note these gifts are geared towards a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl
