Now that my months of research have come to a close and all 10 of our infamous Gift Guides have FINALLY been published, I’m super excited to take a little time to tell you about each one.
After all, detailed descriptions and age recommendations on over 300 toys can be a lot of reading! It’s not a bad idea to break it down a bit and take it piece by piece.
Today I’m highlighting three guides that focus on active and family play (two of my very favorite kinds of play). Ready to see them? Here we go…
If your little one has an adventurous spirit, I say run with it! Whether their fascination lies in the stars above, their own backyard, or testing out their own speed and agility, our finds will help you milk their curiosity to keep them active all year long.
Subcategories of this guide include:
- Top outdoor games
- Best sports gear & toys
- Toys to explore nature
Also included in this two-part guide are the best toys for burning off steam when you’re stuck inside and, let me tell you, these finds can be an absolute life-saver on a rainy day.
Whether you opt to play outside, inside, or a little of both – a pick or two off this list will keep the whole family happy and feeling good all year long.

Having a regular family game night is a great tradition to strengthen the family unit. Not only does it ensure time for connecting with each other, it also gets your kids in the habit of communicating with you – something that will pay-off big time when they’re older. Plus, with the right game, it can be really fun!
Just as valuable as popular family games, are games that kids will happily play alone or with a sibling so that you can get stuff done!
Below you’ll find a selection of games the whole family will love, games perfect for one or two players, and games ideal for pre-readers to help you start a game night ritual even with your youngest kiddos.
Click through for the full list of over 35 of my favorite picks for family game night, broken down into:
- Highly Acclaimed Games
- Games Especially for Toddlers & Pre-Readers
- Single Player Games
- Classic Games Recommended by Age
