We’ve checked out oodles of new toys to find the best bets for this year’s top holiday hits. It was so hard to choose! This year, there are some standout themes: poop, slime, unicorns, plush rescue pets, dinosaurs and interactive robotic pets (a continuing trend from last year).
Updated hits include brand new L.O.L. Surprise, Lego and Hatchimals toys. And speaking of updated, there’s a new twist on an old standby, the Barbie Dreamhouse. Looking to combine multiple trends? Check out Poopsie, a surprise unicorn that poops glittery slime. (Seriously.) If you’re into the classics, we have a great new wooden train set to recommend, and there’s an exciting new dinosaur play set from Playmobil.
