Shopping for kids can be difficult, especially if you haven’t a clue what any given age group is into these days (not to mention what’s safe for them to play with).

Either way, you want to shop for toys that encourage imaginative play and that they’ll be thrilled to receive for holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. Take a look below for our list of 10 awesome toys that you can buy for less than $50 in 2020.
