As we scrambled to find the perfect Hanukkah gifts for kids this year, we thought it might be best to go straight to the source. So we asked our contributing editors to ask their kids what they really want. Here goes Tamara Reese who shares what her sons, Owen and Gil, want for Hanukkah this year.

Owen, 3.5: 

Diecast Dusty Plane ($9.88)


Me: Owen, Why do you want a Dusty plane for Hanukkah?

Owen:  “Well, one (finger pointing at me) I don’t have one of those. And two (two fingers) I don’t want to wait for my birthday and THREE (three fingers up) I also want the guy who is mean to Dusty in that movie. Can you check in your computer and order that from Amazon?”

Melissa & Doug See and Spell ($19.99) 


Daniel Tiger Figure Set ($19.95)


Engineer Ari & the Hanukkah Mishap ($7.01)
