The biggest shopping days of the year are nearly upon us and if you’re unsure what to go out and buy this holiday season for the kids in your life, we have you covered.
2017 is all about “Star Wars,” interactive toys, and little baby monkeys called Fingerlings.
After attending several toy fairs, running to a few major retailers, and attending toy review site TTPM’s annual holiday showcase this year, INSIDER rounded up the toys that every kid will want on their holiday list.
1. Fingerlings: Call them this year’s Hatchimals. The small interactive baby monkeys from WowWee are small enough to wear on your finger and respond to touch, sound, and motion with over 40 different sounds and features. There is also a baby unicorn exclusively at Toys ‘R Us. A sloth named Kingsley was released November 17.
The toys have been hard to find in major retailers like Target, Walmart, and Toys ‘R Us. You can find them on Amazon, but you may wind up paying triple retail price.
2. Star Wars Forces of Destiny dolls: I was stopped dead in my tracks when I first saw these dolls earlier this year. They’re gorgeous, detail oriented, have multiple points of articulation for role play and come in outfits that look like the real deal.
We also recommend Hasbro’s Black Series line of “Star Wars” figures for older kids and collectors.
