When it comes to Christmas Toys for 2016, many parents are opting to look for lists of top toys sooner rather than later. Often, toys that are the 'must-haves' are sold out, sold at higher prices or in limited quantity, by the time Christmas Day gets closer.
Here's our Top 10 Christmas Toy Picks we've prepared for you.
1.) Snuggles My Dream Puppy. This cute dog is probably every kid's dream whether or not they already have a dog. You can feed puppy until it falls asleep! This toy has not yet come over the border to retailers in Canada but you can order it from Target.com right here for $75.59 CAD. You can save $20 CAD off of $100 CAD right now, using code CANADASHIP. import fees and taxes are paid in advance during checkout when you select Canada Post.
2.) Zoomer Chimp may look a little bit daunting in the 'what if he came to life when no batteries were in him' kind of way, but really, with him knowing over 100 voice commands and tricks and having life-like chimp movements he's going to be a new favourite interactive toy in your home. The price may be a bit steep at $169.99 at Sears but the actual play factor of this toy will make it worth it.
