I released my holiday gift guide last week and have had so many questions and emails about the top toys for children this year. So today I’m detailing the new and popular toys this year so you don’t have to worry about your child’s dream toy selling out. (All above images are clickable!).
I researched dozens of gift guides and product reviews this year so here is what I think are the hot holiday toys with the highest risk of selling out.
Here they are:
- Paw Patrol Interactive Mission Chase – Paw Patrol is HUGE right now. Chase talks, sings, and your child can even use his flashlight as they go on “rescue missions” together. Both girls and boys love Paw Patrol! Target has already sold out but you can find on Amazon. Note: this Paw Patroller is another hot toy and sold out at Target, but find on Amazon here.
- Hoverboard – This a hot gadget this year! Esspecially for tweens/teens/college kids. Something to note about these; most on Amazon ship from China and have a 3-4 week ship date so need to order asap. Urban Outfitters has a great gift guide and they have this iGlide one for $550 that is on backorder until November 20th. Neimans has this hover board for $1800 (definitely not a child’s gift, but keep in mind for an adult if everything else sells out!).
- Girl Scout Easy Bake Oven – Girls can see the cookies baking and thin mint mix included! So cute at about $44.
- Wonderball Fun House – So much fun for ages 18m-5 years. Balls funnel all throughout the house, and there is place to store them! ($129.99)
- Meccano Robot – A HOT toy this year. They build, program, and play with this robot – and it has over 1,000 phrases. For a great price on Amazon.
- Pottery Barn Kids Doll Diaper Case ($39)- This sold out last year and my readers with girls were so upset! It includes cloth diapers, changing pad, bottle, and wipes case. Get it personalized for $10 more! Such a darling gift!
- Stephen Curry Under Armour Basketball Shoes – The HOT shoe this year for boys who play basketball. These are already sold out in some sizes. Find smaller sizes here.
- Mirari Flip Flop ABC blocks – My daughter had the older version of these and loved them for years! The little animals jiggle inside the blocks and babies and toddlers love!
- Imaginext T-Rex – He roars, walks, and chomps his teeth. Find at Target, but find on Amazon. he will probably sell out! Batman is really popular too this year.
- Ninja Turtle Play Set – This guy transforms into an interactive playset that has 9 different rooms! Already sold out at Nordstrom but find at Target. If it sells out, there are third party sellers that have it marked up on Amazon.
- Star Wars Episode 7 Remote Control BB -8 – This app-enabled droid is available at Target. Or find it here. Note: anything Star Wars is big this year! Other toys at high desk of selling out are here and here.
- Lego Dimensions Starter Kit – My nephews want this! They build something with the Legos, then put it on the toy pad, and watch it shows up on the screen in their video game! Make sure you get the one for the gaming system they already have (XBOX, Playstation, Wii U, etc.). If they have the starter set already, get accessory packs!
As for American Girl, it is hard to say what will sell out so if you’re daughter has her heart set on a certain accessory, buy it now. (The gymnastics set is a good 4-piece sturdy set that my girls have loved).
