The Latest Toy Crazes For Kids
Here’s our pick of the New Toy Crazes 2021. These are the coolest new toys we think will be popular for boys and girls this year. 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 the latest TV shows. 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].

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. If you’re starting out with slime, it’s a good idea to buy a kit. This glitter set from Elmer’s is one of the best-selling kits on Amazon at the moment. No extra ingredients are required. 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.
What are the new Toy Crazes 2021?
Massive at the moment are the Squishmallow squishy toys and the popper fidget toys. Surprise capsule toys seem to continue to be popular this year and familiar themes such as dinosaurs are right up there. The little minis craze still seems to be going strong plus the slime craze that’s been around for a few years still seems to be sticking around.
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.
New Toy Crazes 2021 – 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.
