Christmas is just around the corner so if you haven't started getting your Christmas list together, then now is the time.

While you may think you have six weeks to get your presents in order, we all know how it will play out and we want to avoid the last-minute panic-buy and wishing you ordered your gift a couple of weeks beforehand when you first saw it - especially if you're buying for kids.

If you have little elves to buy for and you're not sure where to even start, then don't worry, you've come to the right place. The gorgeous kids at the Starlight Foundation have been trying and testing Amazon's best toys to create a list of the top 100 toys that your little one will love.

1. CRAYOLA Light Up Tracing Pad Light Board - $49.45

Emily (13) says, "I love that this can help me to draw amazing characters and scenes."
