Walmart's Top Rated by Kids Toy List Holiday Toys
I celebrated my 35th birthday at Walmart’s Top Rated by Kids Toy List event with Chloe’s World of Play and Just a BX Girl

Chloe’s World of Play and I recently attended Walmart’s Top-Rated by Kids Toy List event where we got to learn about and play with 48 of the most-wanted toys for kids. The Top-Rated by Kids Toy List is split into six (6) different toy trends for kids of all ages.

  1. Famous Friends – This trend is inspired by the make-believe adventures of your child’s favorite famous characters, furry friends, heroes and role models from this year’s hottest cinema and TV shows. The toys in this category inspire kids to reenact the action from the big and small screens and create their own adventures.
  2. Unboxing Toys –  If you thought surprise toys were going away, you guessed wrong! It seems like they’re here to stay and are bigger and better. This year, unboxing toys aim to inspire kids to find new ways to play with their toys and create unique adventures based on their interests.
  3. Interactive ToysKids love toys that respond while playing. From toys that talk, hug, dance, and change color, these toys in this category aim to engage the imagination and creativity of kids as they express their personalities through play.
  4. Outdoor Fun – Getting kids outside and off of the couch and their tablets, is huge! The toys in this category encourage kids to play in the great outdoors. Whether it’s driving, sliding, scooting or hovering, these toys at Walmart help kids find new ways to get around and play outside.
  5. Aspirational Play Whether preparing to take flight, go glamping, own a pet, or cook a gourmet meal, there are no limits to creativity and no boundaries on what kids can be when playing with these toys. 
  6. Gaming – Whether it’s a rainy day or as kids get older, they want to enhance their digital adventures as clearly influenced by the ever-growing gaming community. The games in this category are for kids who want consoles and accessories to guarantee a superior gaming experience.
