Holiday shopping is upon us. At least would like us to think so.

First, it was the return of all things pumpkin spice when summer revelers were still splashing in the pool. Now, before back-to-school new shoes have a chance to get scuffed, Amazon has released its Top 25 Toys & Games for the Holidays 2017 list.

Amazon recently unveiled its early toy preview list, curated by Amazon’s toy experts. It features some of the online retailer’s favorite products.

STEM toys have a prominent place on the list, and Eva Lorenz, Director of Toys & Games at Amazon, noted they encourage “learning through play.”

“We want kids to feel inspired to invent and explore, and believe STEM toys are a great catalyst,” Lorenz said.

Others are products you’ll no doubt recognize from your kids’ favorite TV and movie shows, including Paw Patrol, PJ Masks, Cars 3,  The LEGO Ninjago Movie and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
