With holiday planning already very much a reality for, well, many people, we understand how that can equal stress. But thankfully, we learned a thing or two about the hottest toys this year from Mastermind, which will save us a bit of time when and if we begin our shopping. This year’s best bets include robots, all things Star Wars and, um, even a mechanical kitty cat. Watch them in action in the video above, and check out the gallery below to see where you can get ’em and for how much.
These are the toys kids are losing their minds over this Christmas
