This post is sponsored by Go Bananas Toys. Visit them in Ashburn, VA or shop online for the best toys for Christmas.

Where do you go to find the best toys for Christmas? Whether you're shopping for your own children, friends or family, you want to go to a toy expert. And since the North Pole is pretty busy this time of year, you need to go to the next best place: an independent toy store.

There are a lot of places where you can buy toys, both in stores and online. And they all have lists of the "hottest toys of the year" which you can usually find crammed between aisles of paper towels and dog food.

Yes, these superstores can be convenient.

But are they really the place to go to find the best toys for Christmas? 

When I'm choosing toys for my own kids, I want to know that I am finding things that will capture their attention, encourage open ended play, and last well into the New Year.

That's why I am so excited to be partnering with Go Bananas Toys to get an expert opinion on the best toys for Christmas this year. Like our own personal elves, the folks at Go Bananas know toys. It's all they do, and they are committed to only stocking high quality toys that kids and parents can love. You can walk right in (or call) and speak to a toy expert, who will guide you to the perfect gift for anyone on your list.

They've let me in on their favorites for this holiday season, and I'm excited to share them with you. Ready to do some shopping? Let's dig in to this year's Holiday Toy Guide from the experts at Go Bananas.

How to Choose the Best Toys for Christmas 

When choosing toys, there are two main things that you want to consider.
  • Do they encourage creativity and imagination? Toys should be the tools that your kids use in play, and should inspire them.
  • Are they well made? You want to invest in toys that last, not junk that will fall apart easily.
Every toy at Go Bananas fits this criteria, which is why they are an award winning toy store.

With this toy list, you won't have to worry about quality. You'll just need to think about the ages and interests of the children on your gift giving list and you know that you'll find the perfect gift.
