No matter the age or gender of your kiddo, Lego is always a sure hit. There are dozens of legendary kits so you can build all your favourite characters and structures. Start your search online at Superbalist for as little as R129, or browse the wide range of sets in store at Makro and Toys R Us.

If the thought of animal hair on your furniture drives you crazy, then check out these adorable robotic pets (R499.99, Checkers) that walk, sit, beg and jump into your hand. They’ll make happy sounds when you pet them, wiggle their ears and tail, and respond to your voice and hand gestures.
MY LITTLE PONY
It can be tough deciding which My Little Pony to take home, but the Cutie Mark range (from R89.90 to R489.90 at Toys R Us) is the key to any little girl’s heart. Each pony comes with a comb and barrette and a special twist to make her extra magical.

The latest toy on the market is a bit of a splurge, but loads of fun. Care for your hatchimal (R1 299.99 at Toys R Us) to get it to peck its way out of the egg.
