Making sure to put just the right presents under the tree for kids can be a trick even for Santa. If you’re hoping to find out what’s hot before you head out to the stores, we’ve put together a few suggestions.
Retailers themselves are generally the best judges of what’s in. Here are what some of the biggest toy retailers in the Verona-Cedar Grove area and beyond are saying:
Learning Express Toys, located at 643 Bloomfield Ave., in Verona is stocked up on all of the most popular toys of the season.
They have recently restocked their magna tiles, which have been a hot item for Christmas and recently got a new shipment of Super Art Table and Chairs which sold out very quickly.
The Super Art Table and Chairs is on sale for $150, instead of the original price of $250.
Boogie Boards also sold out quickly but are now back in stock said Learning Express Manager Nelly Roman.
Other popular items are:
- Alex arts and crafts products
- Do-a-dot art
- Laser Fingers
- Laser Pigs
- Science toys
- Elf on the Shelf
"People come to Learning Express Toys because they love the one on one customer service," said Roman. "We also provide feedback and do gift wrapping."
