There’s nothing more frustrating than kids seeing an ad for a new toy and updating their holiday wish list! All the toys on this list are either newer or coming out soon, and will likely be popular this holiday season. Some of them, especially the most popular choices, you might even want to buy early to make sure you get them before they sell out.
We’ll keep updating this list with new toys between now and holiday 2021, so make sure to bookmark the page and check back!
Even though a new one comes out every year the Barbie Dreamhouse remains one of the most popular toys for kids, especially girls. This one comes with all the trendy modern amenities you’d want in your own house like an egg-style swing and a pool with water slide.
Just like last year, Baby Yoda is probably going to be a sell out hit. This new Grogu toy has him snacking on all his favourites: a bowl with tentacles, a cookie, a shifter knob, and a spoon. If you’re wondering why the price is so high, it’s also motorized with moving eyes, head, ears, and arms that react to the food.
This one isn’t quite out yet, but when it does we expect it to make a big splash. From the company that made Pomsies, this light up doll has an included magical crystal that passes colourful “crystal powers” between the necklace and the doll.
On first glance it’s a pretty funny gift, but recipes are actually really good. Snoop will guide them through cooking some of his favourite recipes like chicken and waffles and that famous “gin and juice”.
You can’t go wrong with the LOL Present Surprise sets when you’re giving out actual presents! There’s 20 surprises to unbox alongside this trendy doll that looks like she’s ready to go to a wintertime party.

A mini nail salon right in your home! This kit makes it so easy to do your own custom nail designs thanks to the stamped patterns and real working dryer. The included nail polish is kid safe, in case you were wondering.
There’s a Paw Patrol movie coming out which means a whole new line of toys for your kids to check out. Marshall seems to be a fan favourite, so you can’t go wrong gifting kids this firetruck for Christmas.
Grave Digger is the truck to see with Monster Jam. Even if your kids haven’t seen the actual show they’ll still get a kick out of this remote control truck. It performs 12 replica stunts including 360s, wheelies, and jumps!
The new Space Jam Movie is already a hit and the playsets are a perfect way to keep the fun going. This one tests your skills to see if you can get Labron James to shoot and dunk the toy baseballs into the hoop.
If your kids are fans of the LEGO Friends line then you’re not going to want to miss this set. It’s a great addition to their Heartlake City set up, plus it comes with some super cute mini builds like a piano.
Hopefully this is a sign that they’re coming out with a new medieval line! This castle, with working draw bridge, includes a dragon for them to build too. Bored of a castle? You can build this set into a castle tower or marketplace.
Take the move inspired game of Jumanji and turn it up to 11 with this brand new, interactive experience. Messages appear in the middle dome and it uses other tech like voice activation to make you feel like you’re playing the real thing.
A cooperative game, you work together with the other players to solve the mystery. Then it’s time to escape the haunted mansion! The two chapters can only be played once, so keep that in mind when making your gaming plans.
