We're looking forward to 2018, but first, take a look at what topped our list as the "Best of 2017."

It's the most wonderful time of the year and that means we're celebrating with friends and family and reminiscing about the best things this year has brought us. Take a look at some of our top happenings from us at Zift -- and stay tuned for more great things to come in 2018!

Zift's Best of 2017

Best Blog

This blog got a lot of parents talking, and we understand why! With the amount of time some of our kids spend on YouTube, it's no wonder that this topic piqued the interest of parents. If you didn't catch it when it was first posted, take a minute to read The Real Reason Your Preschooler is Obsessed with YouTube.


Favorite Tech Toy

This was a hard one because there are so many amazing connected toys, STEM gadgets and video games out there. However, there was one clear winner of the pack. Parents and kids alike have been going crazy for this adorable toy! We even hosted a giveaway on our Facebook page for one lucky parent to gift to their child for Christmas!

Best New App

Kids have been going crazy for this game from Nintendo. No, it's not Super Mario Run (though that was a close contender!) -- it's Animal Crossing: Pocket Edition. Not only is it a super fun game to play, it's pretty safe for kids too.

Best Video

We've heard you: Snapchat is not safe for kids. You know it, we know it, now we just need our kids to understand this. So, it's no surprise that our most popular video of the year was How to Turn Off Location Tracking for Your Child's Snapchat. If you missed this video, watch it below:
