7 best new video games for kids

Just Dance 2018, Fifa 18, Lego Worlds—check out the newest and hottest video games that will be topping every kid's holiday wish list this year.

The hot item for video game-loving families right now is Switch, Nintendo’s new hybrid console that connects to a TV but can also be unplugged and played anywhere—and by more than one kid at a time. It’s an excellent system. However, the hardware is so popular that it’s been hard to come by in stores. Should you happen to spy a Switch for sale, grab it before it disappears, lest you find yourself frantically scrambling around online, where you’ll likely pay a premium. If, on the other hand, your family already has its preferred console, then a couple of new games will be the key to holiday cheer. And this year, there’s plenty of age-appropriate fare to choose from.
