    These gifts would be perfect for my daughters. I have 2 that are 17 months apart and they would enjoy playing with any of these toys, especially the Doc McStuffins toy. They pretend play doctor and patient all the time. We bought some bandages from the dollar store and bandaids and they stick them all over themselves. So cute. Thank you the opportunity.

    Some of these would be awesome gifts for my little boys and we would pay it forward with a couple gifts as well. Times may be tough for us but I know that there is always someone worse off and I want to help make their Christmas special. Can’t wait to see all the winners in the TOTY contest! So many great choices!
