JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Diapers.com, the premier e-commerce retailer catering to families and kids of all ages with its "way more than just diapers" product assortment, today released its holiday hot toy picks for babies, toddlers, and big kids.

The 25 developmentally-minded toys included on the Hot Toy List are sure to be what kids are clamoring for and what moms are searching for — high-quality products that tap into parents' desires to give their children enriching experiences. The toy experts at Diapers.com and its Quidsi, Inc. family of sites closely evaluated this year's options and hand-selected a one-of-a-kind list of 25 smart toys that use innovative technology and/or align with age-appropriate developmental skills. These are the toys of the season that both educate and entertain, and many are expected to be sellouts.

Diapers.com has long been known for its great selection of stimulating baby and toddler toys, but the site's expert toy merchandisers also source and carry thousands of smart toy options for bigger kids as well. This year's Hot Toy List includes top picks for the under-4 set, such as the delightful NogginStik Developmental Light-up Rattle and the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Scooter, with its three levels of learning content. For ages 4 and up, the Meccanoid Personal Robot (age 8+) is a kid-sized companion that learns commands, pairs with mobile devices, and helps kids develop basic engineering and programming concepts. Also included on the list are unique, hard-to-find gifts with limited distribution like the interactive iLOOM (age 8+), which attaches to an iPad to give step-by-step weaving instructions so crafty kids can make beautiful bracelets while honing their fine motor and creativity skills.

"We know moms are eager to find toys that do double duty — engaging their kids by being just plain fun but also adding value by fostering age-appropriate developmental skills," said Emilie Arel Scott, Chief Executive Officer at Quidsi. "We're here to make life easier for Mom by offering the hottest toys early in the season with fast, free delivery right to her door. As a new mom myself, I need a little expert help figuring out what to shop for. I can't wait to shop all the baby toys on this list."

The Hot Toy List from Diapers.com includes toys from popular and much-loved brands like LEGO and Melissa & Doug as well as premium boutique brands like Magna-Tiles and Le Toy Van. Diapers.com also makes it easy to shop for holiday gifts with free 1-2 day delivery on orders of $49 or more (exclusions apply), 365-day returns, and 24/7 customer care.
