INDIANAPOLIS – It won’t be long before stores are filled with shoppers looking to grab the most popular toys for their children ahead of the holiday season.

Unless your child has supplied a list, buying something you’d know they would enjoy can be tough – until recently.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis held the 19th annual Kid-Tested, Kid-Approved event where young people had a chance to play with the hottest toys of 2017. 

“The fact that children are the ones who play with and select these toys helps grandparents, moms, dads, aunts and uncles select toys they know that other children the same age already love taking the stress off shopping,” said Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO of The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

The Top 10, kid-tested, kid-approved toys for 2017 include:
Stikball with Mitts
Shoot Out Hockey
R/C Space Shuttle
Kwick Stix
3-D Mirascope
MiniLab Polymer Snow
Elasti Plasti
Zip, Flip n’ Race

Many of the Top 10 toys can be purchased at The Children’s Museum.
