It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but if that sends you into a panic (the presents! The prawns! The pav!), not fills you with joy, relax; we've done the hard yards for you.

Finding that perfect Christmas gift is an awesome feeling, especially if it's for little ones, but with their interests changing faster than their shoe size — not to mention the sheer volume of toys to pick from — it can be overwhelming to say the least.

Luckily, just in time for the Christmas holidays, Myer have revamped their Toys section, stocking the shelves with the hottest toys of the year, latest Lego sets and cute plush toys.

Here's our round up of the best kids' Christmas presents to spoil the kiddies with this year.

Set your child's imagination alight with Fingerlings Dragons. The strangely-cute little things cling to kids' fingers and respond to sound, touch and magic. In other words: magic to kids' brains!
