Yes, yes, we know. You still haven’t even given out your Halloween candy — although you’ve probably gone through half your stash well before trick-or-treaters arrive, like we have (don’t worry, we won’t tell). But as usual, the big retailers don’t care what time of year it actually is — for them, it’s holiday-shopping time, people.
Amazon’s hotly anticipated Holiday Toy List just dropped, and though it doesn’t provide the same delicious sensory experience as sitting down with the thick, heavy Sears Holiday Catalog that barely fit through the mail slot (I’m giving away my Gen X status here), Amazon’s list is still a pretty fun romp through today’s coolest playthings and gadgets. New awesomeness from Star Wars! Hot Wheels! Barbie! Fisher Price! Melissa & Doug! Nintendo! You name it — your favorites (and your kids’ faves) are probably represented.
Are you ready to get your holiday shop on? Or just do a little pre-holiday browsing? Well, let’s get down to it, shall we? Here are just a few of Amazon’s tippy-top choices, to whet your juicy consumerist appetite. Enjoy — and who knows? Maybe this year, you’ll be the first one in your fam to get all your holiday shopping done first. Hey, it could happen. You never know.
Guess who made the list? Why, yes, it’s Baby Shark, in puppet form! Billed as the WowWee Pinkfong Baby Shark Official Song Puppet with Tempo Control (you need a mouth as big as a shark’s to say that), this cute yellow guy is just the companion for your fave baby-shark obsessed little one.
Your LEGO fan will be busy for hundreds (if not thousands) of hours with this massive set. Just keep your slippers on — this one’s definitely a barefoot hazard.
The set comes with Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven, Olaf, and spritely wind Gale, with nifty outfits inspired by the new Frozen 2 movie. A definite must for any Frozen fan.
Not gonna lie, we’re not exactly sure what the grave-digging bit is all about, considering this is presumably for kids. But we’re sure your truck aficionado will majorly dig it — without needing to hide any corpses.
Do we understand the removable fur? Nah. Are LOL Surprise toys a massively popular (and customizable) hit? Yup. So, hey, we’ll just consider the removable fur part of the surprise.
That’s just five of Amazon’s Top 100 Toys… you can check out the full list here. Have fun (just leave room in your budget for, like, vegetables and the mortgage). Cool cool cool.
