Christmas is a magical season. As in, all your money seems to magically disappear – especially if you have children to shop.

The National Retail Association predicts buyers this year will spend an average of $ 659 on gifts for family and friends. Pricing like $ 200 for a Barbie DreamHouse and $ 300 for a Nintendo Switch will not help anyone.

We know that you want to have the children's gifts that you love – but you should not have to break your budget.

We reviewed Walmart and Target's list of the best seasonal toys in order to find affordable options for families on a budget. Here are 15 cool toys under $ 20 that will not leave you feeling guilty.

Note: The charges shown are the regular retail prices obtained online on November 13, 2019. The price you pay may vary.
