Must Have Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids or Children - 2017
1. Great Gifts for the R/C Lover
If you have an R/C fan in your life then you’re in luck. The XPV Super Terranator is a fantastic gift idea. This R/C vehicle is all terrain, comes with not 1 but 2 engines for tons of power, 4 wheel drive takes it just about anywhere your imagination can think of, and 12 volts of power make it a powerhorse!!
This R/C vehicle can fly over land, through snow and mud and it can go through or over water!! That’s right, the special hull design makes it fantastic for skimming over water.
2. Fisher Price fp3 ~ A Hot Christmas Gift Idea for Toddlers
Here comes Christmas again, my daughter is always begging me for music and music related things ~ and she’s only 2! She is very much in her “I do it” stage and in her growing independence she has broken a few music players both portable and non. It’s frustrating so I was glad to hear Fisher Price had made a music player just for her.
The Fisher Price fp3 player is especially designed to be kid tough and take the wear and tear only a toddler or preschooler could inflict.
3. Wii Music
If you have a gamer and/or musician on your Christmas gift list this year you better jump on Wii Music. It’s poised to be a top seller, and will not likely be on the shelves the closer Christmas gets.
When it comes to music and rhythm games,Wii Music stands in a class of its own. Unlike other music games, which penalize players if they don’t play perfectly, Wii Music is a musical playground where there are no mistakes. Here anyone can pick up and master the huge array of instruments available, through simple motions like strumming and drumming. Musicians in your band jam by simply playing their instruments to the beat of a song or by improvising to their heart’s content. Play faster. Play slower. Skip a beat, or throw in 10 more. No matter what you do, Wii Music automatically transforms your improv stylings into great music.
4. Amigo AM15 Nylon String Acoustic Guitar
Kids love music, when you see your kids starting to show a love of music, it’s a great idea to help them take that love one step further… and start playing. Playing an instrument can give a child lifelong satisfaction and enjoyment. Why not encourage your youngster to learn the skill of guitar playing with the Amigo 1/2 Size Classical Guitar for Kids or Children?
The Amigo 1/2 Size Classical Guitar for Kids or Children is the perfect guitar for getting kids started on the road to learning about all types of music, from rock to bluegrass to classical. And it is sized correctly for children – 32 inches long, so that it fits younger bodies.
This kid-sized European guitar is made with a spruce top for excellent sound. Beech wood sides and back serve to compliment the soft spruce wood for producing a satisfying tone. Nylon strings are included, making the Amigo guitar for kids a good choice for home practice and enjoyment, and also for use in a classroom or guitar lesson setting.
5. John Deere Ride On Toys
This year she got a John Deere ride on Gator. She absolutely loves it. I was a little nervous about her having a ride on toy, but she really loves it and has gotten a lot of enjoyment out of it.
Overall I’m really pleased with the ride on gator, but there are a couple issues I have with it, although relatively minor.
You can see more pictures and the whole story of her getting the gator as well. If you’re thinking about a ride on toy I would definitely say go for it now that we actually have one.
There are so many choices when it comes to ride on toys ~ I particularly like this little ride on gator because it’s John Deere (of course). We live in a farming community so it just made sense.
I also like that it has a working dump bed so she can help me haul weeds and help out with yard work.

8. Disney Princess Bike
What little girl wouldn’t love a Disney Princess bike? It is not only a great Christmas gift, but the perfect gift for a birthday, or even for Easter. The Disney Princess bike is great for kids from ages 2 and up. It comes in a variety of sizes, so no matter what your toddlers age you will be able to find a disney princess bike that will fit. The smallest size does not have breaks so if you want to teach your toddler to ride a bike the correct way you should opt for the 12 inch bike instead of the smaller 10 inch. The 12 inch bike may seem too big, but it is pretty adjustable and can be lowered to fit smaller children.
9. Fisher Price Barbie Power Wheels, A Hot Christmas Gift
My little one is 2 1/2 now. She’s into things that move and wants to move fast. My mom mentioned wanting to get her a Fisher Price Barbie Power Wheels. I had no clue what it was so I did a little looking around!
Holy Cow! There are a lot of choices for the mobile toddler.
From what I’ve seen and read, the Power Wheels Escalade and the Wrangler Power Wheels are two of the toughest and most long lasting models around. People have kids still using these models even 4 or 5 years later. In fact, they are keeping that model and getting their younger kids a Power Wheels Ford f150, or for a new little girl a cute Power Wheels Mustang, yes, there’s even a pink Barbie Power Wheels model.
My least favorite choice in these large machines is the Power Wheels Ninja. It is a real 4 wheeler for toddlers. I would highly suggest a helmet to go with this one. They sell full face youth helmets that should fit the average toddler. I wonder if a toddler’s sense of balance is good enough yet to be maneuvering a four wheeler.
Most of these power wheels have 2 speeds, the low speed which goes up to 2.5 miles per hour. When your little one has control at that speed you can switch to the high speed which goes up to 5 miles an hour.
That seems a little over the top for me, but I’m a first time mom who’s probably a little overprotective. lol.
All in all these Fisher Price Power Wheels seem well built, and long lasting, and many families end up with not only one but two of these ride on toys.
If you are looking for a fun, long lasting hot Christmas gift you can’t go wrong with a Power Wheels and rest assured you can find something that will fit your child’s personality just right.
