One thing that every parent wants is to knock it out of the park on Christmas morning. To see a child's eyes light up with genuine appreciation and to hear squeals of delight is literally one of the best gifts that any of us can ask for.

Um, can you say PRESSURE!

Sometimes that special gift seems so elusive that you're basically the next Sherlock Holmes looking for any clues praying that they'll lead to Christmas magic. 

Ugh, how are we supposed to know? What if I told you that you don't have to.

Drumroll....

Introducing Walmart Toy Academy a new platform featuring curated lists of the best toys of the season categorized by kids' ages, interests – such as the Top Toys of 2017, Top Toys Under $20, Top Collectible toys, Top Toys for Preschoolers and Top Toys for family Fun, to name a few. Plus you can filter your search based on your budget! I know you're probably asking how Walmart knows what your special kid loves any more than you do. My guess is that it's science. Or magic. Or maybe a little of both. I can only speak from my experience. I did a little test drive and landed on Hot Wheels Ballistik Racer ($90) and the FurReal Friends – Tyler Roarin' Tiger ($100) for Felix and Des respectively (these are also featured as two of the Top Toys of 2017), and, well, I think the video speaks to the success of how well Toy Academy works more than I can.

That's the magic of Christmas.
