The Hottest Holiday Toys for 2023
If your kids have drawn big circles around every item in the toy catalogs and you’re wondering where to start with your shopping, you’ll want to check out these 20 picks that really deliver. Our list of top toys for the season focuses primarily on special, unique gifts — the kind that causes your child to cheer in delight when unwrapping (sorry in advance to your ears). Santa might deliver one of these, or maybe a grandparent or a cool aunt. They’re not stocking stuffers, is what we’re saying! Some of our picks are buzzy and trendy, especially the “reveal” toys, while others are this year’s new version of a toy classic that we love. All of them win for the “wow.”
We’ve also arranged them by age, starting with babies and going up through toddlers, preschoolers, and big kids. The older the kid you are buying for, the further down you’ll want to scroll. If you need more ideas for holiday gifts, don’t miss our perennial favorite Top 25 Gifts for Kids of All Ages.
