Just like that, your tiny tot isn’t so tiny anymore. And her toys are growing up too! In fact, her holiday wish list has gone from simple Duplos to 1,000-piece LEGO sets, cuddly stuffed animals to augmented reality toys, and plain old racecars to buildable electronic sets. Navigate your big kid’s winter wishes with our slideshow featuring hot toys for school-age kids below.

Playmobil Ghostbusters Ecto-1

When something’s strange in your neighborhood, you know who to call. Let your mini Ghostbusters’ imaginations run free with Playmobil’s new Ecto-1 wagon. It’s got everything your crew needs to trap even the most ecto-plasma-y ghosts around—proton packs, working ghost traps, stickable slime and two bona fide Ghostbusters to get the job done. Top it all off with working flashing lights and siren sounds to really amp up your play time. It’s almost a reason to hope for psychokinetic energy readings … almost!

Find it on Amazon, $44.68
Ages: 6 & up
