It’s almost time for another holiday season. Magic for the kids, careful planning and effort for the parents to make that magic happen. We need to strike a healthy balance between getting the kid’s everything that they want and keeping the bank balance happy. The top toys for Christmas 2015 are endless depending on what type of toy you are looking for. Should you go for one of the many new tech gadgets made specifically for kids or do you go with the classics that have made kids happy for years? I like to strike a happy medium between toys for learning and toys that encourage exercise and outdoor activity. A little bit of everything is what we have chosen for our top toys for Christmas this year.
