If you’re wondering which toys kids will be asking Santa Claus for this year, American Merchandiser has rounded up a list of some of the top trending gifts and toys that are sure to make their eyes light up once they open the package.
Walmart released its toy list (36+ toys chosen by kids) on September 3. Target silently released its hottest toys list some time after Walmart on the same day,, and Amazon quietly unveiled a “Toys We Love” list the week of September 14. The major toy list trendsetters differ on which toys are the hottest, but their similarities give vendors just what they’re looking for in terms of which types of toys children are adding to their wish lists.
So instead of guessing what kids are looking for, skim through our gift and toy guide for the most sought-after toys of the season.
