Must Have Toys helps parents find the latest toy and playground crazes. We watch the toy, puzzle and collectible trends to see what’s hot and what’s not. Very often crazes come from the most unexpected places. Take fidget spinners, for example.

You know a craze is a craze when it is banned from school. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over. Lots of crazes are reinvented time and time again.

Children love a craze because they love novelty. They always want something new. Kids don’t have the same ability to wait for things. Sometimes this can be very frustrating for adults. Children are also highly influenced by others around them. This includes people on social media as well as real-life friends and acquaintances. If someone they admire has something, they may well want it to because they want to be like that person.
