There’s nothing like seeing the look on your child’s face, when they’re unwrapping that one toy they’ve been wishing for all season long, but getting to that moment can sometimes be stressful. Especially if you are a busy mom like me, trying to figure out the latest cool toys, find time to find great sales and ultimately purchase them!

Scouring the toy aisles in search of the “perfect” gift is a tough task for any parent– so having great recommendations from a trusted toy source is key! That’s why it was great to be able to take part in the biggest day of play at the annual “Holly-Day” #HotToys13 preview event presented by The Toy Insider, The Big Toy Book & Woman’s Day Magazine. The Toy Insider panel of experts have put together a guide to the hottest toys for children of all ages of the 2013 holiday season and this year even added a Top Tech 12 list for the tech-savvy kid on your list.

Here are some of our favorites:







More than 10 amazing toy brands including Hasbro, Leap Frog, Just Play, Playmates Toys, Green Toys and Tomy were on hand showcasing just some of the creative, innovative and just plain fun toys this holiday season including Doc Mc Stuffins Get Better Check Up Center, Battroborg, Leap Pad Ultra, Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods Star Destroyer and those loveable “Heroes on the Half Shell,” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
