The Latest Toy Crazes For Kids
Here’s our pick of the New Toy Crazes 2020. These are the coolest new toys we think will be popular for boys and girls in 2020. Furthermore, they make great stocking fillers! Toy Crazes are often smaller collectible toys that build around a theme such as unwrapping, slime, unicorns, aliens or dinosaurs. They are sometimes referred to as ‘playground crazes’. Toy trends often build on ideas from games, YouTube videos or follow TV shows, for example Fortnite. Here’s the latest, most-wanted on-trend toys and crazes we’ve heard about. Grown-ups – if you can’t find any of these products locally, we’ve included links to Amazon [Disclosure].
As tested on How To Spend It Well At Christmas. It’s the 40th anniversary of Rubik’s Cube this year and it’s still a great stocking filler.
Saw these today for the first time. They are cute makeover dolls where you use your skills to fix the fails!

Will Slime Stick Around?
Slime is still super-popular. Lots of ‘Slimers’ (yes, it’s a thing!) have their own recipes and command lots of attention on social media.

Always supervise slime play.
Here’s the Mega Slime set from the National Geographic brand which eight varieties of slime and putty including pre-made magnetic putty, fluffy slime, glow-in-the-dark putty, liquid slime, colour-changing putty, snotty slime, bouncing putty and DIY glow-in-the-dark slime lab.
Toy Crazes Down The Years
Back in the day, it was the hula-hoop, Yo-Yo and the Rubik’s Cube. We had double-dutch skipping and hopscotch crazes too. For boys it was mostly trading cards and stickers.
More recently there were Squinkies, Loom Bands, Tsum Tsums, Zhu Zhu Pets, Silly bandz and Moshi Monsters. For 2019, it looks like collectible toys will remain very popular.
Also, 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 new toy crazes
Children love a craze because they love novelty. If something’s new, they want it. Kids don’t have the same ability to wait for things. Sometimes this can be very frustrating for adults. This could be 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.
