110 Hottest Toys for 2018 (Updated)

hottest new toys 2017

It’s clear that this year is going to be a banner year for the toy industry. Already in 2018, we’ve seen the death of the biggest toy retailer, Toys R’ Us, and that means online shopping is going to be the go-to for toys.

So many great brands have cool new toys out or on the way very soon, and that is enough to excite kids and parents alike (especially if they have a child with a special birthday coming up soon).

Whether you’re buying for your kids, or buying for yourself, it’s now easier than ever to find awesome toys for any budget. Of course, kids only want the best toys, as anything else would be considered subpar in their eyes. Luckily, Nerf, Hasbro, Melissa & Doug, Play-Doh and more have made it their goal to make 2018 a memorable year in the industry.

With that in mind, here is our list of the top 110 hottest toys for 2018 birthdays and holidays (and keep this list bookmarked, as we’re going to be updating/swapping out toys as new toys are announced).

Top 3 Kids Toys for Birthdays in 2018 Right Now

The Incredibles 2 Jack-Jack Attacks | $39.99 | Amazon
Nintendo Switch | $299.99 | Amazon
furReal Roarin’ Tyler | $94.99 | Amazon

1. The Incredibles 2 Jack-Jack Attacks Figure

hottest toys 2018

This Incredibles 2 Jack-Jack Attacks Figure is easily one of the hottest toys of 2018, with Disney’s upcoming animated film undeniably going to be the biggest animated movie of the year. The figure comes with an 11-inch Jack-Jack, whose head lights up a fiery red, has glowing eyes, and comes with a raccoon (which will likely make sense once we actually get a chance to watch the film.

It’s a great-looking toy that does some pretty cool things, and that’s why it’s on our list of the year’s best.

Price: $39.99

Buy it on Amazon.

2. Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch box

Somehow, my Nintendo Switch has become my favorite console that I own (and I own the PS4 Pro, Xbox One S, and gaming PC). There’s just something so unique about Nintendo’s handheld/console hybrid that gives it an undeniable charm. And with its growing catalog or both old and new games, it has become much formidable than it was at launch.

What’s more, we already know about some super exciting games on the way, including the Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey. The Switch can be played on both a television and on the go in handheld form, and in both ways, graphical fidelity is impressive (although, of course not quite PS4 Pro-level graphics). Still, it’s well-worth it, and its worth grows every day.

3. Laser X Laser Gaming Set

Laser X gaming

Laser Tag is definitely a kid favorite. But the problem is that, in order for kids to play it, they typically have to go somewhere else (in my case, it’s The Fun Spot in Lake George, NY). But not any longer, as they can now create their own laser tag experience at home with the Laser X Two Player Laser Gaming Set.

It comes with two receiver vests and two laser guns with full color lighting effects that let you track shots and hits. The vest has an interactive voice coach that will shout out tips and give feedback during the game, and if you plug in headphones, you’ll be able to hear the game’s soundtrack and its sound effects. What’s more, there are various other sets that it’s compatible with, meaning you can great an ever bigger game than just a 2v2 match.

4. Nerf Rival Artemis XVII-3000

Nerf Rival Artemis 2017

For the more advanced Nerf user, this year’s new Rival Artemis XVII-3000 will certainly get the job done. It’s designed to shoot high impact rounds at 100 feet per second, bringing an all-new level of intensity to their Nerf battles.

It holds 30 rounds, and it’s available in both blue or red colorways (bringing the classic Red vs. Blue battle back). It uses slam fire action for super fast shooting, and because of its speed, it’s accurate at short to mid range.

It’s hands-down one of the best kids toys 2018 has to offer for Nerf fans.

Recommended Ages: 14+

5. LeapFrog Scoop & Learn Ice Cream Cart

leapfrog scoop & learn

Who doesn’t love ice cream? LeapFrog’s new Scoop & Learn Ice Cream Cart is a brilliantly designed toy for kids. It has an ice cream scoop that grips the ice cream and allows your kid to put it on the cone to give to someone. The cart’s playful phrases will introduce colors, numbers, flavors, and more, and pushing the cart around helps build gross motor skills. It’s super cute, and your child will love it.

6. Fisher-Price Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi

fisher price think and learn

The Fisher-Price Think & Learn Each ‘n Tag Movi is going to soon be THE best STEM toy for kids under 5 years old, and it is one of the hottest toys of 2018. There are 3 different game modes available, and it’ll keep your young child thinking and moving.

He can do a number of different things, including prompting your kids to follow directions for a fun game, engage their critical thinking skills, or simply getting down and funky on the dance floor to dance with them, keeping them active. It’s going to be one of the best combinations of STEM and active toys, as it has great active games like Movi Says (Simon Says) and Red Light, Green Light to keep your kids moving when they can’t quite go outside. It is available now, and it’s one of the best toys 2017 has to offer.

We also have the Movi on our list of the best toys for 4 year old boys.

Recommended Ages: 3 to 6 years

7. Power Wheels Wild Thing

power wheels wild thing

Technically speaking, the Power Wheels Wild Thing came out in 2016. However, it was super late in 2016, and by the time holiday shopping began, it didn’t get the buzz that it deserves. At this year’s Toy Fair NYC, the Power Wheels Wild Thing was prominently displayed by Fisher-Price, and kids absolutely love it.

They’ll use dual joysticks to control steering in both forward and reverse, but it’s especially great for spinning around and around quickly. It has a top speed of 5 mph, and the speed can be gradually changed by parents (under the seat) when they feel their kids are ready to fly. Its thick, durable tires make it great for driving on various types of terrain, and it’s a ride-on toy that they’ll get a lot of use from.

Recommended Ages: 5-10 years

8. Pie Face Despicable Me Minion Made Edition

pie face despicable me game

Pie Face was one of the hottest selling games of the holiday season last year, and this year, Hasbro has teamed up with Illumination Entertainment for a Despicable Me Minion Made Edition, celebrating the new classic animated feature.

The game is still the same, but it just has a different look to it. So if you bought the original for them already, there’s really no point in buying the Minions version. However, if not, it’s a great game that has players taking turns in potentially having their face creamed with whipped cream.

9. Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio

play-doh touch shape to life

Toys to life has been tried by just about every company you can imagine. The best execution we’ve seen so far is with the now defunct Disney Infinity video game series, but since that’s no longer available, let us introduce you to Play-Doh’s latest. It’s called the Touch Shape to Life Studio, and it allows players to bring their unique Play-Doh creations into a virtual world. Think Bloxels, but with Play-Doh. You can buy a starter bundle that includes 8 cups of Play-Doh.

Recommended Ages: 3+

10. Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit (littleBits)

Create your own droid? Count us ALL in! Check out littleBits’ Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit which comes with everything your kid needs to build and control their own droid (except for the smartphone used to actually control it).

How does it work? Well, each building block has its very own function — some blocks are speakers, sensors, motors, etc). Kids can build and rebuild their droid in many different configurations, customizing it to their liking.

The app that goes along with it allows your kids to teach their new droid skills like self navigation, and they’ll be able to send it on its very own missions to complete. The Droid Inventors Kit is one of the hottest Christmas Toys of 2017.

Price: $99.95

11. Star Wars The Black Series 40th Anniversary Figures

star wars the black series 40th anniversary

One of the most buzzworthy toy announcements to come out of Toy Fair NYC in February was the new line of Star Wars The Black Series 40th Anniversary Figures. These classically detailed 6-inch replica figures are modeled after the original cast, including Princess Leia, Han Solo, R2-D2, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

We’re starting to see the prices of these rise as well, as they’re a hot item this year, especially with the release of The Last Jedi just around the corner.

Recommended Ages: 4+

12. Power Wheels Boomerang 12v Ride-On

power wheels boomerang

Power Wheels just recently started blasting their newest product, the Power Wheels Boomerang 12V ride-on, to your TV sets with a new marketing campaign; you’ve probably seen the commercials on Cartoon Network. Anyway, this new ride-on toy is a Toys R’ Us exclusive, and it’s undeniably cool. It’s shaped like a trike, and it allows kids to tilt and spin into fully controlled drifts — something we haven’t seen yet in the ride-on space. It’s recommended ages is 5 to 10 years, although I can’t imagine actually seeing a 10 year old squeezing into it. Realistically, I’d suggest 5-8 years.

Price: $349.99 (reg. $399.99)

Buy the Power Wheels Boomerang at Toys R’ Us Only.

13. Automoblox Mini S9/C9/T9 Set

It’s the simplicity behind the Automoblox brand that immediately drew me towards their line of toys. These wooden toy cars are built to last, and their modular design allows your kids to modify their car with other various parts. These wooden cars simply work great, providing a smooth riding experience for your kids.

It doesn’t look like there’s going to be a stock issue here, as they’ve yet to be out of stock online. We’ll keep an eye out, though.

Automoblox also made our list of the top toys for 4 year old boys.

Recommended Ages: 3 – 10 years

14. Zoomer Show Pony

Those familiar with the toy market know that Zoomer is a well-known brand that creates cool remote controller pets. In past years, the Zoomer Dino and puppies have been HUGE hits come the Christmas season. This year, they’re introducing the Zoomer Show Pony, the next generation of robot pets by Spin Masters. The pony will respond to touches and voice commands, being fed treats, and brushing her hair. The toy made its debut at the Toy Fair earlier this year, and it was a huge hit.

Price: $79.99

15. Floof: Reusable Indoor Snow Set with 22 Accessories


There’s no denying that kids love the snow, but of course, the problem is that you can’t play with snow year-round. Now, with Floof, they sort of can. Floof is indoor snow that’s easy to mold, and it’s reusable — no melting, here! What’s more, you don’t have to spend 20 minutes bundling your kids up only to have them say they have to go potty right when you get outside! It’s basically a sort of modeling clay that’s much lighter than actual clay.

The Floof Mr. & Mrs. Snowman Set comes with 22 accessories, including Snowman molds and things to build your snowmen with. It’s a great alternative to real snow for when it’s just too cold outside this winter.

Recommended Ages: 3+
$16.99 (11 percent off MSRP)

16. Nerf Nitro Motofury Rapid Rally Set

new nerf guns

Sure, shooting foam darts is cool, but what about foam cars? That’s the question that Nerf is asking itself in 2017 with their brand new Nitro Motofury line that’s debuting this August. That’s right — you’ll shoot foam cars with Nerf car guns. However, the idea is not to shoot these at other kids (although, that’s what’s going to happen).

Instead, the guns are angled down towards the floor to create the most horizontal velocity possible so that the cars can shoot off of ramps and through hoops (both of which are included with the Nerf Nitro Motofury Rapid Rally Set).

Recommended Ages: TBD (likely 8+)

Available Now.

17. Transformers Trypticon Figure Platinum Edition

transformers Trypticon

Literally the coolest new toy on the market in 2017 is the Transformers Trypticon Platinum Edition figure — and that’s coming from a person who despises the Transformers series. It’s a mega, 3-in-1 dino figure that also turns into a battle station and city. In dino mode, it can even walk. It converts between each in just 6 steps.

It also comes with a Brunt Tank vehicle, three weapon accessories, two scanner accessories, two blaster stands, two loading ramps, and two connectors. Trypticon wants to obliterate his enemies from existence entirely, and in his battle station mode with two cannons, he can do that with no problems.

We are beginning to see some in-stock problems with the Trypticon as we begin the holiday shopping season, but nothing too drastic, as we’re seeing it reappear shortly after it’s OOS.

Price: $145.69 (14 percent off MSRP)

18. Beat Bugs Musical Submarine

best target exclusive toys

Beat Bugs is a new musical Netflix TV series inspired by The Beatles for kids. It’s quite popular, and highly rated. This year, Target has debuted an exclusive new Beat Bugs toy, the Beat Bugs Musical Submarine. It plays the songs Yellow Submarine, All You Need is Love, and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It comes with a 3-inch Fab Figure of Jax, and it fits up to five Beat Bugs within (although they’re sold separately). Batteries included.

Price: $19.99

19. Marvel Legends Series Mjolnir Electronic Hammer

Electronic Thor's Hammer

Sure, there are numerous different toy Thor hammers on the market, but the Marvel Legends Series Mjolnir Electronic Hammer takes the coolness factor to the nth degree. Not only is it a full 1:1 scale 19.75-inch replica, complete with an authentic wrist strap, but it also has voice-activated light features that make it 10x cooler. With your voice, it will activate and reveal the symbol of Odin, glowing for all to see. Not only is it great for role play and superhero fun in the yard, it’s also great for cosplayers (or simply for fans who loved Thor: Ragnarok earlier this year).

Price: $99.99

20. Nerf N-Strike Elite AccuStrike Series AlphaHawk

nerf accustrike

It’s no secret that the Nerf brand has gone absolutely bonkers with its new product lines and creations. One of this year’s hottest Nerf toys is the N-Strike Elite AccuStrike Series AlphaHawk. It has a sort of revolver meets assault rifle design, containing an easy-loading drum that holds 5 darts and a dead bolt to load them for each shot.

But it has the size of an assault rifle or shotgun. The AccuStrike line is designed specifically with accuracy in mind, with specially-crafted darts that fly straighter than their original darts. The toy gun weighs just 2 pounds.

21. DRL Nikko Air Race Vision 220 FPV Pro Drone

drl nikko air race vision fpv

The Drone Racing League is taking off in popularity, thanks to its high octane drone racing and new TV deal that brings that action to the masses. Now, the ultimate drone racing experience can be brought home with the DRL Nikko Air Race Vision 220 FPV Pro Drone.

This baby is a great entry point for the world of FPV racing, as it’s designed for pilots with all skill levels in mind. It has 3 variable flight modes, and multiple speed settings for the ultimate control. It helps you learn to fly a racing drone and compete in actual (virtual, though) DRL courses. It comes with the drone, itself, as well as FPV goggles, a controller, a 4.3″ LCD screen, and all of the batteries you need right out of the box.

What’s most impressive about this racing drone is that it can hit speeds up to 25 miles per hour. It’s rechargeable, has a built-in camera, and uses gyroscopic stabilization to keep it hovering with ease. Our only gripe with it is its short runtime (around 6 minutes), but if you buy a backup battery along with it you’ll be set. You can pick it up at Target for $155, and it’s one of the best kids toys for the warmer months of the year.

Price: $154.99

22. Kingdomino

kingdomino game

Kingdomino is an award-winning new strategy game from Blue Orange. It tasks players with building the beset Kingdom they can, and it’s a great family strategy game for ages 8 and up. Each game lasts roughly 15 minutes, and it can be played with up to 4 players. It comes with 8 wooden King tokens, 4 3-D castles, and 48 dominoes. Here’s how it’s played:

Dominoes with a Kingdom building twist! each turn, connect a new domino to your existing Kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain Type already in play. The game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order who of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. Make sure to secure tiles with crowns- these royal treasures help to multiply the worth of your Kingdom at the end of the game! the game ends when each player has completed a 5 x 5 grid, and then points are counted based on number of connecting tiles and crowns

23. Roblox Series 1 Pizza Action Figure

Another game that blew up in 2016 is Roblox, the social game that’s available on virtually all consoles, tablets, etc. Kids absolutely love it, and it’s the hot topic of conversation at every lunch table. In early 2017, Roblox rebranded with a new logo and the introduction of their first line of Roblox toys. As it stands right now, the best set available is the Series 1 Work at a Pizza Action Figure set, which comes with a pizza chef, delivery driver, delivery scooter, and pizza boxes.

It comes with new reactions, including one in which you yell “Move, ball” in Han Solo fashion to see it roll away sadly.

It has an animatronic mouth that syncs to its speech, and it has touch sensors for kids to control the stories and songs.

It’s a GREAT way to get your kids active even on rainy days, as they’ll race around trying to get the fastest/best score they can.

62. Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Revenge Zombinator

zombinator super soaker

There are so many great water guns coming in 2017 that we don’t know what to do with ourselves. Of course, Nerf is leading the way with its new additions, and one of our favorite is the brand new Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Revenge Zombinator. Now, we have no idea why this is branded as their Zombie Strike brand, as water has literally zero effect on a zombie horde (unless it’s from a firehose. See: The Walking Dead for more info on that).

But the Zombinator has a really cool look to it, with a slate blue, lime green and bright orange colorway. On top, it has a scope — an entirely useless scope that’s just there for show, but a scope, nonetheless. It blasts water up to 30 feet, and it has 3 different types of water streams.

101. Roominate Townhouse Building Kit

We were super impressed by what new brand Roominate had to present at this year’s Toy Fair. The Townhouse Building Kit caught our eye the most. It is a 121 piece set that has pluggable walls, furniture building pieces, wheels, axles, motor, doll, pet cat, screwdriver, stickers, wallpapers and more. It encourages open-ended play which creates unlimited possibilities. With the motor, your kids are able to make a spinning windmill, blender, pottery wheel, and other things.

The idea behind the brand is that there are tons and tons of STEM toys for boys, but girls don’t get the same sort of options. Roominate wants to give girls more options for STEM play.

Recommended Ages: 6-12 years
