Holiday shopping season has already begun and if you don't have your holiday shopping list ready, Walmart is here to help. The retailer released its 2021 Top-Rated by Kids Toy List -- a list curated by a panel of actual kids, ages 2-12, that will hopefully toss adults everywhere a much-needed lifeline when it comes to shopping for presents this year. 

With the supply chain going through a second year of severe delays, many shoppers are starting on their holiday lists extra early this year to avoid that last minute scramble and every parent's worst nightmare-- that one holy grail holiday toy selling out before they can grab it. So if you’re looking to join these holiday season early birds, now is a great time. 

From a bounce house you can enjoy in your own living room to an interactive furry friend you get to summon with a complex set of spells, this year’s toy list is jam-packed with products that the whole family can enjoy experiencing. Try a camera that can instantly print out your pictures to help capture the precious moments, or build the iconic battle scene from Avengers: Endgame entirely out of Legos.
