It’s never too early to start planning your Christmas shopping. Here are the top 20 hottest toys your kids will likely want for Christmas this year.
Many toy stores have already started prepping for the holiday season, with some listing out what they believe will be the hottest toys to gift this year. With all of the internet retailers out there, there are hundreds of goodies to choose from. But, to make things easier, we’ve broken down those lists into a more condensed version.
Below are the top 20 hottest toys your kiddos will want for Christmas this year!
The toy was one of the hottest items last year, and it looks as if nothing has changed. This year, stores have the Colleggtibles Egg Carton 12-Pack high on their lists. If you’re just looking for a stocking stuffer, though, packs of four Hatchimals are a great option.
Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkey
Considered to be the hottest new toy of the year, these little monkeys latch onto your finger and respond to sounds and motions. They come in a variety of different colors, including brown, turquoise, blue, pink, purple, and white. These Fingerlings will set you back around $30. They may seem silly, but little kids love them.
Now this is a name I haven’t heard in a very long time. I grew up with Teddy Ruxpin, but it looks like the bear is joining the Digital Age. With LCD eyes (over 40 animations), touch sensors that allow kids to control the story and songs, and an animatronic mouth, it’s going to be very popular. Already, Amazon sellers are trying to jack up their prices, so get your paws on this bear before it’s gone by purchasing it before the rush.
Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder Ride-On
This is something that I want for Christmas. This Star Wars ride-on from Radio Flyer goes up to five miles per hour, fits two kiddos (under 130 pounds), and will let them explore the galaxy in style. With the new Star Wars movie coming out a week before Christmas, this toy is sure to sell out early.
Roarin’ Tyler the Playful Tiger
This FurReal tiger is an interactive pet that roars and moves his eyes, ears, head, mouth, and tail. He’ll even react to your movements! This is this year’s “Tickle Me Elmo” and it will sell out. When it does, expect to see grown men fighting over the last Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger on store shelves…
LuvaBella Baby Doll
Said to be the new “Hatchimal,” LuvaBella is an interactive doll that laughs, drinks, sleeps, and even learns some words. With fairly realistic facial and eye expressions, the doll comes to life. If you have a daughter, this is probably what she wants and it will only set you back $125.
Cozmo is a toy robot of the future. By Anki, this cool robot learns more about you the more you hang out with it. Some of those features it learns include facial recognition and your name. Plus, it can emote hundreds of emotions. You can buy this cute little robot on Amazon for $180.
BB-9E App-Enabled Droid
Give BB-8 a buddy in the form of a First Order interactive droid. These were the hottest boy toys of the year when the last Star Wars movie came out. These will likely sell out, or jump up in price, between now and Christmas. This little guy is $130 on Amazon.
Soggy Doggy Board Game
Give the dog a bath in this new board game. But be careful as you try to make it around the bathtub, or else you could get wet from the dog shaking himself dry and have to start over. Buy the game on Amazon for around $15.
The Fidget Spinner took the world by storm, and it’s still pretty popular. (Though I’m more inclined to the Fidget Cube less than $2 on Amazon.) You can buy this toy pretty much anywhere for around $10-$15.
Star Wars Furbacca Furby
Can’t get enough Star Wars? Then this Furbacca Furby is the perfect gift. It’s also set to be the best-selling Furby of all time! You can buy a Furbacca on Amazon for under $50.
Nintendo Super NES Classic
What a throwback! This smaller version comes with 21 preloaded games from back in the day. It’s going fast, so make sure you get one at Target for $80.
Tickle Me Elmo
Was there ever a time this toy wasn’t included on a Christmas toy list? This classic toy has been reimagined for today’s generation. For less than $30 on Amazon, Tickle Me Elmo is yours.
The Pie Face Game
It’s one of the best-selling games of the year, and it can be the perfect addition to your family game night. For only less than $20 on Amazon, you can watch your family members compete to see who will be surprised with whipped cream.
The Last Jedi Porg Plush
Star Wars is all the rage this year, and it makes sense with The Last Jedi hitting theaters on December 15. So it’s not surprising that when the trailer for the film dropped in early October, everyone fawned over the cute little Porgs. And you can buy a Porg for your very own at Target for $16! I will shamelessly be buying one for myself.
L.O.L. Surprise (Large)
Unwrap 50 layers of surprises in the L.O.L. Surprise. These guys are selling out all over the place, so buy yours before they’re all gone at Target for $70.
View-Master Virtual Reality Viewers
I had one of these as a kid, and I loved it! This new hi-tech version takes things to a whole other level with a full 360-degree view. Get the View-Master on Amazon for $19.
Googly Eyes Drawing Game
Put on the vision-altering goggles, and try to draw. The first team to guess the drawing wins! You can buy the drawing game on Amazon for $15.
Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit
More Star Wars! This kit allows kids to build and create their own astro droid — from the battery to the decorative stickers and other accessories. It’s a great way for kids to gain new skills and get creative. Get your own R2 Unit on Amazon for $100.
My Geek Box Monthly Subscription Box
Get the little geek in your family a gift that keeps on giving! My Geek Box is a monthly subscription box that’s full of fun and educational goodies. For a one month subscription, the box costs $28.
