5 Holiday gift ideas for toddlers and preschoolers
We have put together a list of some of this year's hottest toys for toddlers and preschoolers. Consider one of these fun holiday gift ideas for your little one.
Sesame Street Let's Rock Elmo
Elmo is always popular with small kids -- and this year, they are going to love him. This rockin' Elmo comes with a microphone, tambourine and drum set. He sings six different songs and "magically" recognizes whichever instrument you give him. You can also buy the Let's Rock guitar and keyboard separately to play along. Sesame Street Let's Rock Elmo is on sale for $49.96 at Amazon.com.
Fisher-Price Disney's Rock Star Mickey
Elmo isn't the only character rockin' out this year. If you missed the Dance Star Mickey last Christmas, you have to snag Rock Star Mickey for your kids this holiday season. Mickey kicks across the floor, bobs his head to the music and even drops into the splits. Get this cool toy for just $39.97 at Amazon.com.
Mattel The Sing-a-ma-jigs Duet
Sing-A-Ma-Jigs have been popular for a while, but this year they offer double the fun. Now, you can get the Sing-a-ma-jigs Duet. Each character holds a miniature version of the Sing-a-ma-jig. And when you press both their bellies, they sing, harmonize and chatter together. It's double the fun. The Duets are featured at Toys "R" Us for $14.99.
