Ho, ho, ho!
Santa’s makin’ a stop at Toys “R” Us this year!
For all the parents out there, you’re probably familiar with spending time at Toys “R” Us. From buying birthday presents for your kiddo’s friends to being lured in. Either way, you’ve probably spent a significant portion of your weekend checking the world’s leading toy shop! The best part of going into Hong Kong’s largest toy shop is during Christmas time when the store is chock full of holiday deals and the newest toys. So if you’re looking for the best toys on the market this season, Toys “R” Us has got you sorted. Check out their top 15 picks that’ll give your kiddos a perma-smile on Christmas Day as they unwrap the presents under the tree.
If you’ve got an aspiring fire fighter on your hands, The LEGO City Fire Engine is definitely the winning gift this Christmas.

The set features a Fire Engine and a 2-story abandoned building with an opening door! It has 376 pieces (Yowza, that’s a lot! Watch where you step!) in total and includes three firefighter mini-figures.

We love a good ol’ problem solving toy and there’s no better on than the Rubik’s Cube!

It also has a brand new mechanism that results in a smoother, faster and more reliable Rubik’s Cube. Sounds good to us!
