Now, we all know that when it comes to Christmas shopping for our kids, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest toys and tech. Queue Desi Banks, our favorite comedian, actor, and YouTuber, who has some experience thinking about the kids, especially as a new father. And what better place to find all the latest than at your local Walmart, with low prices even Santa’s elves would be amazed. Walmart carries a variety of items, from the latest tech toys, to gaming equipment, and even some more physical toys to keep your little ones busy. There is truly nothing better than seeing the Christmas spirit glow from a set of eyes that believe in magic during this holiday season. 

As a loyal Walmart customer, Banks knows how fun it is to purchase through Walmart – whether it be browsing through the stores, shopping online, or even picking up his goods with curbside pickup from his local Walmart at no extra cost (the latter two are valid with a minimum purchase of $35). Follow Banks’s example in bringing joy to your kid’s world and shop at Walmart where you can save money and live better. 

Develop your little one’s motor skills and imagination by gifting some of the most beloved LEGO items in Banks’s Walmart Christmas shopping cart. With the 974-piece LEGO Friends Magical Funfair Roller Coaster, boys and girls can play the role of construction builder, magician, and carnival-goer. The extensive playset is a suitable choice for children ages eight and up, and includes all that a little in-house fair needs for fun: four mini-dolls, two rides, two magic tricks, a photobooth, a popcorn stall, and a fabric roof that houses the show that must always go on. 

If your youngster has more of a need for speed, allow them to play the role of both engineer and race car driver with the LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR. Inspired by the iconic real-life vehicle, this playset is equally as impressive as its inspiration, with a detailed V8 engine that has moving pistons, and opening dihedral doors, and it’s even crafted with the same sleek, vivid blue design like the original car. For decades, the timeless Super Mario video game universe has been adored by children, and with the LEGO Super Mario Reznor Knockdown Expansion Set, kids can add two Reznors, Blue Toad, and a seesawing Grrrol to their own LEGO Super Mario universe. At Walmart, the LEGO options are abundant for both boys and girls. 

On the topic of video games, you can never go wrong with the Xbox Series S, Xbox Wireless Controller, and Xbox Stereo Headset – all sold separately at low prices at Walmart. Being the smallest Xbox console ever, the Xbox Series S is known to be incredibly fast, which allows your child to play thousands of games from all Xbox generations at a higher speed. With the textured-grip Xbox Wireless Controller, your little one can effortlessly stay on target. It even allows them to capture and share screenshots and recordings with their friends, while they intently tune into their game at a crystal-clear volume using the ultra-comfortable Xbox Stereo Headset. 

If you would prefer for your little one to go outside rather than stay in gaming, the Razor E100 Electric Scooter is a superb choice, and comes in both blue and purple. Delivering control, safety, and speed, its hand-operated brake and 8” (200 mm) pneumatic front tire allows for a smooth ride that lets your little one stop and go at their own pace. Thanks to its rechargeable battery, children can ride around for up to 35 minutes uninterruptedly – perfect for playtime. 

For the athlete, both the Spalding Super Tack Pro Basketball and the Spalding 32-inch Eco-Composite Telescoping Portable Youth Basketball Hoop are ideal. Designed for children ages four and up, young slam-dunkers can spend hours outside dribbling, exercising and practicing their B-ball skills. The hoop’s telescoping lift is easily adjustable, therefore, whether your youngster is taller or shorter than average, it can be perfectly modified to suit their height. 

Last but certainly not least – as this next toy was featured in Walmart’s Top Rated by Kids 2021 list, Banks purchased the Just Play Barbie Tie-Dye Deluxe 22-Piece Styling Head. The beautiful doll has flowing, thick, brown hair with purple streaks that can be easily brushed and braided into a variety of trendy hair designs. Little cosmetologists ages three and up can enhance their creativity and glamourize Barbie using the included manual tie-dye spinner, the colorful – and kid-friendly – dyes, scrunchies, ribbons, and customizable barretts for styling, a multicolor brush, eight plug-in gems, one nail wheel, and nail stickers – because let’s be honest, we can’t forget about the nails, either. 

Regardless of the presents your youngster may prefer, Walmart also offers gift cards that allow them to pick out the items that most catch their attention from the store’s myriad of toys and games. Allow your children to feel the merriment that Banks’s young gift recipients felt when they received their presents. This Christmas, let Walmart be your guide in manifesting holiday joy for all and find more gifts here.
