When it comes to holiday shopping, the kids should be the most fun to buy for -- but fighting other parents for the hottest toy only to see it break before breakfast on the day it's opened is hardly the way you want to spend your season.
Instead, choose from these durable, timeless toys that will bring your little ones hours of playtime -- all of which are made from eco-friendly materials and non-toxic paints -- so you can sit back and enjoy the season, too.
