There are a lot of cool new toys that await the little ones this holiday season!

The holiday season is fast-approaching, and as a ninong or ninang (godfather or godmother), you’re probably struggling to find the perfect gift for your inaanak or godchild.

Other than fun, games, and entertainment, toys for kids also provide them opportunities to learn and grow. They can also help widen a child’s imagination and develop his/her creativity.

It may sound tricky, but choosing a cool toy for the kids in your life doesn’t have to be a challenge! Here’s a list of the hottest toys for kids this Christmas which will net you the “Ninong or Ninang of the Year” award!
