The hottest toys of 2020 are finally here! Here’s everything your kiddos are already asking you for. Like, every single day.
Regardless of Christmas, your kiddos are still asking for some kind of toy or game each and every day. There are a bunch of newly released toys already, many have recently debuted at the NYC Toy Fair, and some have won some major awards and accolades already this year, so we’re here to keep you totally in the loop!
While there are so many different toys and game options for just about every age-and-stage for your kids, this year it’s all about major unboxings, collectibles, mini everything, blind bags, surprise dolls, and super smart interactive techie must-haves! A lot of the toys you bought last year are updated, upgraded, and already into their 2nd and 3rd series.
If you’re having a hard time keeping track of the latest LOL Dolls, Fingerlings, Baby Shark (yes, it’s still a thing), Hatchimals, and the already top-selling Blume Dolls, don’t sweat it because we’ve got you covered on everything you need to know, where you can get them, which you can already pre-order, and which are currently on sale!
