Meet the XKids—the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Kid Experts

DALLAS — The Army & Air Force Exchange Service has enlisted a team of young experts to share the joy of toys this holiday season and beyond.

The XKids—a group of 13 kids from 3 to 12—tested and rated the hottest toys of the season. Their recommendations are highlighted throughout the Exchange’s Toy Book and their special page on the Community Hub.

The XKids HUB is a fun place for military children to get to know each XKid, watch videos and download activity sheets. The kids have debuted on the Exchange’s social media channels too, and their picks can be easily purchased at

“The Exchange is excited for Airmen, Soldiers and military shoppers to get to know the XKids,” said Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “We’ve assembled a terrific group of boys and girls from a variety of backgrounds. This program truly allows the Exchange family to share with military families.”

After the holidays, XKids plan to continue the fun throughout the year.
