They’re also top games for adults too by the way.

With this thought in mind, I would like to help you all out with some of the best titles out there that would make excellent presents. Plus anything that saves you a bit of time and hassle is always good, especially at this time of the year.

Disney Infinity


Age Range 4 – 12

Here is Disney Infinity back for a third year. It’s an action-adventure game with physical toys, open world creation and story-driven game-play. Characters, playsets and other features are brought into the game using figurines and discs with the included Infinity Base. With the exception of non-human characters, such as those from the Cars series, each character has a double jump and a default set of attacks, as well as an ability unique to each figure. For example, Sulley from ‘Monster Inc.’ and Jack Skellington from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ can roar to scare others while Randall from ‘Monsters Inc.’ can turn invisible.61
