    "Buying gifts for my young nephew has always been a problem for me. The last time that I was in the store an associate suggested that I pick up a LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box for him. When my nephew opened it he was beyond ecstatic. Safe to say that is a really good gift for a young kid."

    "Drones are all the rage these days. They are fun and exiting! I will say that many people do not take the time to learn to fly them well! Take your time,read the instructions and have fun! This little drone is a good way to start flying. It does quite many things for such a small drone."

    "If I had been given this as a child I would have lost my mind with excitement. It's a fantastic system that works well with an incredibly large variety of games, and the functionality is insane. I've spent hours on this device, as have my kids (when they can pry it away from me), and I'd highly recommend it to anyone."

    "I have two kids between the ages of 5 and 10, and they both seem to want every toy they see as a gift for either Christmas or their birthday. I really don't think an American Girl Wellie Wishers Ashlyn Doll would be a good choice for most kids (certainly not mine). American Girl dolls are not really popular anymore, and I think only true American girl fans would appreciate this doll as a gift."

    "While I think this is a neat gift, I could think of other things that could become recommended. I personally wouldn't purchase this because of the cost factor. I as well, probably wouldn't purchase it because my children could name off other toys or gifts they may actually like better. Seems cool at first, but could get a bit boring after about a week or so."

    "This was a fantastic gift to get for my son around the holidays. Kids love anything with a remote control and it was pretty easy for my son to pick it up and start playing right away. He loved the sounds and "beeps" that BB-8 makes and played with it for hours. Unfortunately it does require two AA batteries that didn't come with the box, but that seems to be a trend with all toys these days and I don't hold that against them. "

This a great gift idea for a kid. I got one of the previous model for my two nephews last year for Christmas. They love them and still play with them. This fits the topic nicely."

    "Who does not love Star Wars? Couple that with legos and you are sure to have a winner on your hands. Especially if you can build an action toy. This may contain small parts so use with caution if there is younger kids in the house."

It's like a Jewish version of the Elf on the Shelf, and I think it's great to have a similar concept to the Christian version of this kind of toy. My kids were excited to find the new hiding spot for the plush doll each morning."

    "This is a really fun toy that allows you to experience the rush of having a Millennium Falcon all your own! However the remote control is perhaps too tricky for a child to operate and I question whether it is safe for children- the blades are sharp enough to cut grass. I would not recommend buying this for your child unless they are very mature and cautious of both their own and other children's safety."
