The holiday season is coming, people — and Walmart wants to make the toy-buying process a little easier with a virtual try-before-you-buy experience for their Top Rated by Kids Toys 2020.

Walmart Wonder Lab has just gone live, letting kids play with more than 100 toys that have been top rated by Walmart’s kid focus group this year.
