1. LEGO Marvel Avengers: Endgame Final Battle
Two of the most popular companies come together to create a toy that every lego kid will love for Christmas. Marvel fans can recreate the final battle from Avengers Endgame between heroes and Thanos to save the world.
This set includes 527 pieces that create Iron Man’s lab, a meeting area, a prison cell, a van with a time-travel machine and much more. Kids will also love the included mini-figures of their favorite characters: Thor, Captain America, Black Panther, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Thanos and Ant-Man.

2. Pop-It XL
The amount of kids I’ve seen with the pop-it toy over the past year is crazy. This hit toy has a simple design where children pop plastic holes in and out of a circular board, but for some reason, it quickly became a phenomenon both on Tik Tok and in the homes of families worldwide.
This XL Pop-It made by Buffalo Games has 93 bubbles to pop and is a great fidget toy for kids who need something to keep them focused.

3. Magic Mixies Magical Misting Cauldron
Kids love to mix it up and create new things, and with the Magic Mixies Magical Misting Cauldron they can do just that while interacting with a plushy friend. This set comes with a cauldron that actually mists after you mix in the ingredients from your spell. At the end, kids will have their very own Mixie plush that can interact with them thanks to the magic wand also included.
This product is currently on Amazon’s best-selling list, and is a toy sure to sell out fast.
