The Most Popular Toys for Girls in 2021

We just kicked off 2021 (hallelujah!) and with the annual New York Toy Fair just a few months away, we're sure to get a glimpse at what new toys will be trending this year very soon. But, if you're looking and shopping for toys for girls right now, our list is packed with all the fun and most popular toys from the past holiday season. We still believe cutesy collectibles and Barbies will reign supreme, but thanks to Disney+ and its mega-hit The Mandalorian, we have a feeling Star Wars toys will be big for girls and boys alike.

One of the biggest toys right now: Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition. It's been all the rage for good reason - Grogu (aka "Baby Yoda") is just so dang cute! The toy is just as precious, too, as it moves and makes all the cute giggles, coos, and noises we love from the show. 

As far as cutesy collectibles are concerned, think about what has been the most popular toys for girls over the past few years: Hatchimals, Kindi Kids, L.O.L. Dolls, etc - these are all collectibles!

Some popular picks right now:

  1. L.O.L. Surprise! Glitter Globe Winter Disco Series
  2. L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Candylicious Fashion Doll
  3. L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Busy B.B. Fashion Doll
  4. L.O.L. Surprise! Clubhouse Playset

As you can see, L.O.L. Surprise! dolls are dominating the market right now.

What Are the Best Toys for 10-Year-Old Girls?

10-year-old girls can be hard to shop for when it comes to toys. They're just at the age group where they're starting to veer away from "toys" in favor of more teenie bopper things - don't worry, our list features some of those fun items, too.

So, if you're stuck on what girl toys to buy, have no fear, I've got you covered. I was a 10-year-old once - admittedly, a while ago - but these are my hot picks for 10-year-old girls right now:

  1. Virtually ANY karaoke system with LED lights
  2. Just about anything from the Cool Maker brand (Nail Stamper, for example)
  3. Board Games - if 2020 taught us anything, it's that it's still fun to gather around a table and play games. In fact, it's good for everyone in the family.
  4. Techy fun stuff - the category is big, but Amazon's line of Alexa-powered products are always a good go-to. Bonus - Alexa can even help with homework. 

Toys are only as useful as your child's imagination, and we love it when products foster those creative sparks. So, while we know girls will love the toys we've included on our list, it's always best to think about your kids and get them something specific to their tastes and likes.

Toys For Girls vs. Toys For Boys

Is there really a difference? Well, yes and no. There are definitely toys that are geared towards girls and ones that were made for boys, but in today's world, a toy is a toy. Barbie might be one of the most iconic toys for girls in the world, but even Ruth Handler, the co-founder of Mattel, believed that the doll would inspire girls to dream big and know that they could be and do anything they wanted.

So, while our list definitely features toys designed for girls, we believe that stereotypical "toys for boys" are just as suited for girls, too. Heavy.com has a full list of awesome toys for boys that you can check out by clicking here.

And, honestly? Your kids will tell you what they think is cool. Trust me - kids know what they like and aren't shy about it.
