The jolly guy and his merry crew of toymakers are wising up in the North Pole. You could say "Father Chemist" is running the show. Those elves have been hard at work inventing gifts that get kids' gears turning with a little S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) magic. This year, Metro Parent's Holiday "It" List hunted for some of the top creations, with a little help from the National Parenting Publications Awards and some of our favorite go-to toymakers. The result? Gifts that mix up fun, creativity and even education to stuff stockings and fire up noggins now – and well into the New Year.
We're split the toys into categories to help you navigate this extensive list. Check out play toys, invent and build toys, hot toys, books and music, and games.
