Do you remember the specific had-to-have-em cool toys you listed on your list for Santa? I do!
Mickey Mouse Disco.
Peaches ‘n Cream Barbie.
Barbie Perfume Maker.
I remember wanting these items, wishing for them on stars and writing them on my list. I also fondly recall being delighted when I found them under the tree. They were THE GIFTS that were mega popular amongst children in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s. Wanting them and OMGosh receiving these bright and exciting toys, instead the sensible Garanimals clothes and Little Golden Books, was part of the Christmas magic.
So what are the equivalents of the Castle Grayskull and Teddy Ruxpin today?
K-Mart has the ultimate line up!
Kmart has identified the Fab 15 Toys of 2015. These Kmart.com/Toys include kids’ favorite characters like Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, Star Wars, LEGO, Barbie and NERF. The list is carefully curated based on industry trends, input from parents and kids, and more than 50 years of experience in knowing what toys kids love to play with and find under their Christmas trees.
My crew and I got a chance to open up these amazing #Fab15Toys and here are my children’s reactions. Please forgive the excitement and lack of professionalism and cries of “I want that!” This is our first family unboxing video and the boxes were packed to the rim with the coolest toys!

I personally believe that every single one of these items makes for an awesome Christmas present for children this year. These are gifts that are engineered completely for KIDS. Give ’em the socks, underwear and copies of Tom Sawyer another time!
