So your kid spends all of their time watching other kids open toys, play video games or walk around aimlessly, talking about nothing? Oh.. my kids would get along perfectly with yours! Every time I turn around, they are watching something on YouTube. This year, I asked my kids to create a gift guide with what they want most for the holidays. I was NOT surprised when our 7 year old daughter’s list was full of things that she’s seen or heard about on her favorite YouTube channels. She even used the word “merch” which totally cracked me up! MERCH! What 7 year old says that?! She has also asked that I figure out how to create a toy line with her face on the box. Those videos have her convinced that it’s the natural next step for us and she’s confused as to why it’s taking me so long to get it done. Those YouTube families make it look so easy, don’t they?!
Anyway, instead of sharing a holiday gift guide for 7 year olds, I figured I would share the perfect holiday gift guide for all of you parents out there who have kids that are just as obsessed with Ryan and FGTeeV and all those other families who are living our dream lives right now.

Ryan’s World Mystery Adventure Playset
I’m not sure there isn’t a kid in the world that doesn’t know who Ryan is. He started out playing with toys, while his parents filmed him and suddenly he’s making millions of dollars and has his own line of merch. My youngest actually put EVERY piece of merch on her list, but sadly I told her she had to narrow it down to two. Based on Ryan Toys Review, the most popular kids YouTube channel, each playset is a mystery. There are 3 Possible Themes: Red Titan, Combo Panda and Astro Ryan. The playset also doubles as a storage case with its iconic egg styling.
DanTDM: Trayaurus and the Enchanted Crystal Book
I was most excited when I saw this book on the list because a) it’s a book and b) the Kindle version is FREE! But, if your kids are anything like mine and prefer an actual book, you might want to consider this one! From the mind of one of the most popular YouTubers of all time, DanTDM, comes a graphic novel adventure that reimagines the Minecraft-style worlds and characters he’s created like you’ve never seen them before. After a day of experiments, Trayaurus and DanTDM are about to call it a night when a strange-looking crystal plummets to earth, breaking into five pieces that scatter far and wide.
FGTeeV Kids T-Shirt + Large TV Set
Based on the wildly popular FGTeeV & fv family YouTube channels with over 17 billion views to date. I believe this was the first family that I really watched on YouTube. My daughter used to run around our house singing “party in the elevator” over and over and over again. I actually had no idea why until I started looking at her list and saw this t-shirt. If your kids love watching their videos, they will love this cool fan shirt!
The ultimate unboxing experience features a giant retro TV carrying case. Giant mystery TeeV is filled with surprises including animated plush, collectible character figures, a squishy, 6″ Action figure, hanger plush and binyl stickers. All of the contents capture the crazy and creative energy of the FGTeeV videos. For ages 6+.
Blind Mystery Bags
And of course… if all else fails, you can just walk down the aisles of stores like Target, Walmart or Dollar Tree and pick up any blind bag or mystery bags you can find. If someone got my youngest five or so of those bags, she would be just as happy, if not happier, then if you bought her a brand new car. No, I’m serious. What would a 7 year old do with a car? Ha! But blind bags?! She can make an entire video of opening them and showing you what she got (and hope that a toy company discovers how cute she is and asks her to create her very own toy line). At least that’s how she imagines it will go down.
So tell us, does your kid love watching youtube videos too?
