Holiday shopping will be here before you know it and Parents magazine has you covered for the little ones in your life!

As the holiday season nears, Parents magazine today revealed it’s picks for the best toys of the year for kids of all ages. Over the summer, kids, parents and editors tested the newest toys to hit the market and narrowed down their favorites to the top 49 toys for infants to school-age kids.


Compiled each year before the holidays, Parents magazine kid and parent testers play with hundreds of toys to choose their top picks for the must-have toys of the year. We consider ease of use, fun factor, how simple the assembly process is, length of play and first-person feedback from the kid toy testers.


The Parents Best Toys of 2015 list appears in the November issue of the magazine and online.  Check out their behind-the-scenes video of testing day here.
