Gifts for kids: The toys to talk about this year

Apparently, your childhood was missing an Anteater Bug Vac.


 



1. Meet Spider Spud, Mr. Potato Head's new friend who is -- sorry, old bud -- way cooler than a root vegetable with eye brows. $10, www.hasbrotoyshop.com






2. Mattel's new Pinktastic collection took everything we loved about Barbie and rolled it around in pink glitter. $20 each, at Kohl's stores and www.kohls.com






3. The International Spy Museum's gift shop has some seriously cool gear for your budding Bond. On our wish list: The Spy Evidence Kit (with fingerprint powder!) and the invisible ink pen.

$22 (kit) and $10 (pen), www.spymuseumstore.org





4. The only invite we want this holiday season is one to this fairy tea party. $68, www.mysweetmuffin.com






5. DwellStudio's adorable plushes look like they were plucked from the set of a Wes Anderson movie. $40 each, www.dwellstudio.com






6. Gak was disgusting when you were a kid. It still is -- because goo that makes fart sounds will never go out of style. $6, www.shop.nick.com





7. Signs a toy will be a hit with a little girl: It's called My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle Car. $25, www.hasbrotoyshop.com






8. Add a dose of unplugged whimsy with Moulin Roty's shadow puppets. $18-$21, www.mysweetmuffin.com

 



9. The Nat Geo WILD Anteater Bug Vac sucks up bugs for little ones to view in a removable belly chamber before safely releasing them. Seriously. Buy us one, please. $27, www.ngstore.com

Toys R Us and Walmart stores
