What are Best New Toys 2020?

Must have toys are new or trending toys that kids really want. Top brands and franchises include Harry Potter, LOL Surprise, Fortnite, Blume Dolls, Mighty Beanz, Boppi The Llama. Unicorns, Llamas and Mermaids continue to be sought after and are themes for some of the best new toys. Current toy trends include collectables and unwrapping toys. STEM toys and educational toys remain popular too and new family games are constantly being developed. However, there are plenty of toys and games that have stood the test of time such as LEGO and Monopoly. Others reinvent themselves to remain relevant in a fast-moving world.

New toys and games are always highly prized. Children love a novelty especially when it comes to toys. They will look to other people to see if something is worth having. If a friend, or someone else they admire, has a present they think looks good then they may well want it too. But these days, social media is one of the most popular ways to find new toys. It also means that kids can see exactly how a toy or game works – and adults can see what’s included in the price – before a purchase is made.
