There's nothing better than seeing your kid's excited face when he gets exactly what he wants -- and nothing worse than having to shop at 100 different stores to find the perfect gift. Don't stress mama -- we did the heavy lifting for you. Here are the absolute best Christmas gifts for babies, toddlers and preschoolers this year.
Balancing Blocks We love toys that seem like a game but are really on-the-DL educational. A perfect example: these faceted wooden blocks, which your kids can balance to create cool, colorful structures. See how tall it can get before it topples over. A drawstring bag keeps the pieces from migrating around the playroom. ($48 at Areaware)
