If you’re not willing—or able—to spend a Saturday afternoon running around to various crowded megastores while looking for the latest and greatest toy, a trip to KB Toys might be an acceptable compromise. Though the mall mainstay lacks the charm of an indie or the fantasy-world atmosphere of FAO Schwarz, parents can peruse the large movie section for DVDs before moving on to browse classics like Play-Doh and Rubik's Cubes or modern favorites like digital Tamagotchi pets and Baby Alive dolls—which actually sip juice and wet diapers. Older kids will love the selection of video games and karaoke systems (only available at Christmas time). Multitasking moms and dads can redecorate with Dora the Explorer bed sets. But be forewarned: With so many choices, if it’s a quick jaunt you’re after, it might be better to leave the kids at home.
