The holidays are almost here, and whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, or just a family friend, if you’re looking for a gift for a toddler, then the options might seem overwhelming. I’m bringing back my popular gift guides this year to give you a place to start if you’re not sure where to look. Popular toys this year include new toys that have just come out as well as classic toys that are durable and will provide years of appeal or can be passed down to younger siblings.
