Well the actual top 10 list of toys would you believe it is typically rather uninteresting. You can check the top bestselling toys on Amazon right now for example.

Christmas is a very fast moving toys. Toys that are hot right now may find themselves at the back of the line once we get to the last few months of the year.

One thing is for certain, certain brands are very strong this year and if you know what brands appeal to the lucky kid, then it’s great to shop by brand.

As we get into the run up to Christmas we’ll be adding the latest Red Hot movers and shakers that are staking their claim to being one of the IT toys of Christmas 2018.

Last update on 2018-11-25 at 09:50 (Details)

 

There’s something about superheroes that make them appeal not just to kids but also to the kids at heart. From the Marvel and DC comic books to blockbuster movies and animated series, superheroes are hot and front and center of kids minds.

Lately adults and kids alike just can’t get enough of these heroes that are saving the world and having fun while doing it.

This year, as with the past few years, Marvel and DC have brought superheroes to a new level of popularity with the movies they have released.

These superheroes have existed for a long time, but they are now brought to a new generation of little boys and girls who also want to follow their example and save the world.

Some examples of the newest toys with this theme include Marvel’s 6-Inch Legends Series (e.g. Iron Man, Captain America, Cable, Kitty Pryde, Havok, Phoenix, Hulk, Spiderman), which feature action figures of superheroes from the Marvel universe.

LEGO has also released their own Marvel mini-figures (e.g. Falcon, Iron Patriot, Winter Soldier, Deadpool, Venom Spiderman), and these are compatible with LEGO’s Marvel sets. Examples of these sets are Captain America’s Motorcycle and Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle.

Mattel has also come up with a new line of DC Super Hero Girls, which are taller dolls at 12”, but bring girl power to a whole new level.

Aside from action figures, you also see superheroes in other kinds of toys like puzzles and electronic games.

Finding Dory

Last update on 2018-11-26 at 05:34 (Details)

 

When Disney and Pixar put their heads together to come up with an animated movie, it’s almost always guaranteed to be a hit. Case in point is this year’s Finding Dory.

Even before it was released, it was already widely popular and a lot of people were looking forward to it. This may be due to very good marketing, but it’s also because Dory is already a familiar character from 2003’s Finding Nemo.

Another blockbuster offering, Finding Dory has already made its way to the hearts of many kids from all over the globe. It’s not because of the film. It’s also because of all the toys that have been made based on Finding Dory’s characters. If you look at toy stores and even lists online, you’ll find the adorable new characters introduced in Finding Dory, and you’ll find them everywhere.

For instance, you could get an exclusive PVC figure set, which gives you all the characters in one go. There’s also this version of Dory in a coffee pot, which is quite iconic if you’ve seen the movie.

Even board games are trying to incorporate the Finding Dory theme in their lines, such as Uno and this new game called Operation Finding Dory. Of course you can also get plush toys, a ring toss game, puzzles, and all kinds of toys you can think of.

Last update on 2018-11-30 at 11:13 (Details)

 

Last update on 2018-12-02 at 23:53 (Details)

 

Shopkins took the world by storm when it was first introduced by Moose Toys, not too long ago. Suddenly little girls from all over were clamoring for these cute little items, which you can purchase to complete an entire collection.

Shopkins is basically comprised of little items that you would find in day-to-day life, starting with everything you can find in a grocery store.

Basically, each miniature figure is a rubber piece that started with food items. Each one has a name and comes in a unique finish such as clear, glitter, and metallic.

The food categories include pantry, fruit and veggie, bakery, dairy, sweets, frozen/clear, and party food. There are also some items that are categorized under health/beauty and limited edition.

This pretty much means that the possibilities of what you can see as Shopkins are endless, and this is why it’s still going strong. And still new toys are being released, ensuring its place among the hot toys for Christmas 2018.

There have already been 4 ‘seasons’ of Shopkins toys, each featuring a different collection. The latest collection is Season 5, which is making little girls go gaga. Shopkins Season 5 has brand new ‘teams’ like Sports, Tech, and Music.

As a preview, the names of the new Shopkins characters include Connie Console, Bessy Baseball, Hillary Harp, Katie Skateboard, Polly Piano, Tiny Tissues, and Tammy Tambourine.

This trend of miniature pieces of everyday items is really a hit among kids. Because of this, Moose Toys has come up with other brands like The Grossery Gang and Trash Pack.

Harry Potter

Last update on 2018-11-26 at 20:33 (Details)

 

Just when everybody though Harry Potter was done expanding its universe, we were all wonderfully proven wrong. Years after the last book and movie was released, Harry Potter is making a comeback not just in theaters but also in toys.

There are many catalysts to this resurgence of the Harry Potter theme. For one, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming out as a play in London’s West End. Fans are going crazy because it gives us a peek into what happens to Harry and the gang, many years in the future when they’re all adults with children.

Second, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is also coming out in the latter part of this year. This is only one part of a three-movie franchise, and while Harry Potter technically does not appear in it, it’s the same world of magic that has enthralled audiences everywhere.

It’s technically a Harry Potter spin-off, but it has renewed the popularity of Harry Potter for kids everywhere.

Harry Potter’s world of witchcraft and wizardry is ripe for all kinds of toys to be made about it. J.K. Rowling has managed to create a world where imagination rules, so it’s really no wonder that children of all ages have fallen in love with it.

The new toys include Harry Potter versions of popular board games like Clue and Trivial Pursuit. There’s also a set of Harry Potter playing cards and Funko POP miniature action figures. LEGO has also included Harry Potter in Lego Dimensions Wave 6, to be followed soon by Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

Harry’s recent thrust back into the spotlight and enduring fandom ensures toys from this huge franchise will make great Christmas gifts and stocking fillers.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Last update on 2018-11-27 at 00:03 (Details)

 

Like Harry Potter, everybody thought the Star Wars universe was already neatly closed when the prequel trilogy completed the story.

When they released The Force Awakens however, Star Wars once again dominated the movie charts and captured the hearts of many new and existing fans alike.

Now it’s back again with the second part of the new Franchise – Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars is an insanely popular franchise, even without the new movie. But because they came up with Episode VII and are about to come up with two more, Star Wars is suddenly selling like hotcakes again.

Of course, toy manufacturers know this all too well. Today, you will see Star Wars everywhere, especially because Disney bought it. From Sphero’s BB-8 App-Enabled Droid with Droid Trainer that you can control and maneuver, to new figurines that are just to die for, Star Wars is dominating the shelves of toy stores again.

LEGO has also capitalized in the Star Wars phenomenon, with new sets and figurines. In fact, if you visit any Legoland, Star Wars is clearly a big thing, with its own exhibits.

You will also find new Star Wars toys of all kinds. The new characters are actually endearing, and it’s not just about BB-8. Kylo Ren for instance is the new villain, and he comes with a special red lightsaber that’s unlike any lightsaber that has ever been seen in the Star Wars universe. Kids will surely want it.

Star Wars: Rogue One

Last update on 2018-11-27 at 00:43 (Details)

 

2017 saw the release of the second movie in the newest Star Wars Trilogy. The Last Jedi is the followup to 2015’s The Force Awakens, if you know someone that quite enjoyed last year’s  standalone anthology movie Star Wars: Rogue One, that’s a good idea too.

Star Wars: Rogue One tells the story of the prequel to the original trilogy. That is, it depicts the events leading up to Episode IV: A New Hope.

We’ll be seeing new characters and the return of the iconic Darth Vader. The first wave of toys are due to have a huge Force Friday launch in late September, just like the Force Awakens had last year.

With Star Wars, you can be sure that there’s enduring interest. Now that the franchise has very successfully been revived, so too will Star Wars toys be popular.

There are two more movies to be released to conclude the current trilogy. And there are the intervening anthology movies too, starting with Rogue One. There’s mass excitement and anticipation from the kids of the 70s through the kids of the 00s, through to the kids of today. Star Wars isn’t straying from popular consciousness anytime soon.

And that’s without mentioning that people are still going crazy for a certain Chewbacca mask after a mom went hysterical while wearing one. Google “Chewbacca mom” if you somehow managed to get through 2018 without learning about this.

Toy collectors also obviously want to get their hands on these mini figures, so it’s really no wonder that everyone is following suit and creating mini versions of everything.

The Pop! Vinyl figures are faithful enough to what the characters are wearing, but they still have that unique and adorable look that makes people want to collect it.

New releases for 2017 include Sailor Moon, Ghostbusters, Finding Dory, Star Trek Beyond, NFL Wave 3, Moana, Suicide Squad – especially Harley Quinn, and many others. All characters from upcoming popular movies are sure to have Pop! Vinyl versions of themselves, so all of this is already lined up for a 2017 release.

Because Funko Pop simply jumps on the back of whatever is popular and people like buying them, they can’t fail to be among the best gifts for Christmas 2018.

Five Nights at Freddy’s

Last update on 2018-11-28 at 01:13 (Details)

 

Another trend that has taken the toy world by storm is Five Nights at Freddy’s. It began as a video game that has a wicked sense of humor, and just really gained popularity since it was introduced.

Basically, the player of the game acts as a night security guard for a pizza restaurant called ‘Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.’ As the guard you will have to defend yourself from animatronic animal characters and you can do this through the security cameras.

It’s a very quirky game that has brought survival horror to a whole new level, but it has charmed its way to the hearts of many. Five Nights at Freddy’s is now widely popular among kids. Chances are, they play the game in their computers, and this s why they would be happy to receive any toy that remotely resembles these characters.

For this reason, Five Nights at Freddy’s is an emerging trend in the toy industry. The characters are actually quite adorable, so you’ll find many versions of them. There are 6” and 8” plush toys available if you want them huggable.

Also available are vinyl figure sets where each figure stands at 2 inches or 5 inches tall. There are also some mystery minis, and all of these figurines are great collectible items so a lot of people actually go for them.

Barbie

Last update on 2018-11-27 at 11:43 (Details)

 

Barbie has remained iconic through the years. For some reason, little girls and Barbie dolls really do go together. Even after all this time, Barbie is still trending and this is because they have come up with ways to innovate.

Today, Barbie has managed to transform itself and be more relevant to little girls, slowly shaping their idea of what women can become.

Take for instance the new Barbie Careers collection. Today Barbie can be all she wants to be, from Pediatrician to Eye Doctor to Game Developer. Sky’s the limit when it comes to girls and dreaming, and this is a message Barbie is articulating so well.

But it’s not just these careerwomen Barbies that have brought her back to the spotlight. Early this year, Mattel announced that Barbie will now come in all shapes and sizes, literally.

And they do movie characters too. The latest incarnations of Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman in Batman v Superman have all received the Barbie treatment.

The Barbie Fashionistas line has 4 body shapes, 7 skin tones, 24 hairstyles, and 22 eye colors, making diversity the name of the game.

WWE Playsets and Figures

Last update on 2018-11-26 at 16:54 (Details)

 

WWE or World Wrestling Entertainment is still popular among boys of all ages, so it’s no wonder wrestling figures are trending as toys. The WWE franchise has made entertainment out of professional wrestling matches.

It has made pro wrestlers into superstars and household names, so toys are no exception. Today you’ll find that WWE is a theme that you’ll find in toys, particularly action figures.

Mattel has all sorts of WWE toys that are insanely popular among boys. But as far as action figures go, the WWE pro wrestlers are becoming as sought after as other action figures in the market.

This is perhaps because these are real people that they can actually watch and root for in WWE matches. These are not some faraway superhero that has promised to save the world.

Knowing that this trend is likely to stay a long time, Mattel has this WWE Battle Pack line that you can check out. What this line does is it basically puts together two wrestling superstars in one pack, giving you the chance to recreate your own wrestling match.

This is good news for collectors because you immediately get two instead of one, so it will be easier and faster to build up an entire collection.

Aside from the Battle Paks, there are also WWE TeenyMates Figure Packs, which give you miniature versions of the wrestlers.

There are POP! Vinyl versions of WWE wrestlers, as well as plush toys (‘Bleacher Creature’) that make these famous wrestlers huggable and cute. Naturally, there are toy versions of WWE championship belts, and WWE is of course also in Xbox and PS3.
