Coolest toys this season only at Walmart
There's at least one every year - that toy at the top of lots of kids' wish lists that they dream about finding under the tree. Usually these toys are hard to find if you wait too to buy it (or rely on the old man in the suit to bring it). And, to make your shopping even more adventurous, some toys are found exclusively at one store.
We scoured through the top-rated toys and picked out the ones that are sure to please a wide range of personalities and interests. They're the best because current owners love them, they're a great value, and they often go beyond just being a holiday-time novelty. Many teach kids valuable life skills and lessons they will need to know in school. Win on all levels with these toys found exclusively at Walmart.

For those with a little homemaker, a kid-sized kitchen can be appreciated by everyone in the household. It teaches practical cooking skills, safety procedures, manners, and it's just plain fun.
