2016 Multiples Holiday Gift Guide

Toys can easily take over, especially when you have two or three of everything. Finding great toys that your multiples and other siblings can share isn’t always easy. So in addition to our traditional Holiday gift guide, we put together a great list of toys with multiples in mind!

Enjoy! – Annette
