Summer is over, so that means its time for holiday shopping, right? OK, maybe we all want to get through pumpkin season first, but December is fast approaching. In one of the earliest signs of holiday cheer, Target has released its list of top holiday toys. The list isn’t ranked; instead, it predicts which toys will top kids’ Christmas/Hanukkah lists based on popularity. Notably, many of these toys are also exclusive to the retailer, including toys from Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that have yet to be revealed.
One trend? Surprises, and big ones, from favorite brands. The yet-unreleased L.O.L. Amazing Surprise toy will have 70+ toys and will be available for pre-order on September 20. A rainbow poop surprise kit (yep, that’s a thing now) and mega mystery treasure chest also give kids the opportunity to continue the joy of surprise long after the present itself is opened.
Parents will also recognize favorite brands, like Paw Patrol’s newly souped-up lookout and an all-new Hot Wheels track. Target exclusives include brands like Our Generation and Marvel. As with kid’s toys year-round, name brands and toys that light up lead the list. You can check out the full lineup here.
