21 Christmas Toys That Should Be on Every Parent’s Radar

We’re a short sleigh ride away from Black Friday, but the hottest Christmas toys of the year may not be there by then!

Parents who are hip to what’s going on with the global supply chain have already gone into full BOMO mode. They’re choosing to buy now rather than miss out on gifts they know will sell fast and take ages to restock. And it's up to you to join them in the race—or risk disappointing overeager children on Christmas.

From magical misting cauldrons to big wheel scooters, here are 21 toys that are still available at select TopCashback retailers and eligible for cash back savings:

1. LEGO® VIDIYO™ HipHop Robot BeatBox

Making music videos doesn’t get easier than this. Have your kids download the LEGO® VIDIYO™ app to choose and customize tunes with the HipHop Robot. Once they scan their bandmate and his accompanying BeatBits, they’ll be all set to record a showstopping performance that can be played back over and over again.

2. ZURU Smashers Mega Light Up Dino Egg

Your little paleontologists will get to work on uncovering 25 lava volcano surprises with the help of a map and sheer determination. Each piece that’s revealed can then be used to build a Dino T-Rex or Spinosaurus. Talk about a roaring good time.

3. GraviTrax Starter Set

Young engineers can keep busy creating an interactive track system that experiments with gravity, kinetic energy, acceleration and more. This might as well earn them extra credit in science class.

4. Got2Glow Fairy Finder

A-hunting we will go! Children ages 5+ can find and collect virtual fairies just by searching around the home. For each fairy they catch, their jar lights up—enabling them to feed, hug and play with their new pet. Magic never ceases to amaze.

5. Imaginext DC Super Friends™ Bat-Tech Batbot

Batman meets robot in this action-packed playset that features multiple projectile launchers, a light-up control center and a jail cell to lock up Gotham’s most notorious villains.

6. “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” Galactic Snackin’ Grogu

Now that The Child has a real name (though, let’s face it, who’s going to stop calling him Baby Yoda?), Disney is releasing newer merchandise based on the character’s beloved quirks from season 2 of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian”—including his habit for eating anything and everything!

This animated toy comes with interactive accessories, like a blue cookie and bowl of tentacles that instantly grab his attention. In other words, he’ll let you know if he’s liking what he’s eating via cool sound effects.

7. LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Wizard’s Chess

Surely this will earn every Potterhead’s seal of approval. LEGO’s homage to the iconic chess scene in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” promises roleplaying adventures and good-natured competition for fans of all ages.

8. Throw Throw Avocado Game

Did you ever feel the urge to throw an avocado at someone? (We won’t tell.) This family-friendly party game offers you the chance.

Perfect for kids as young as 7, it’s super easy to play. You’ll be asked to collect matching cards, score points and engage in “duels” with opponents. The weapon? Soft, smiley avocados that cause more laughs than harm.

9. Baby Alive Lulu Achoo Doll

Playing doctor is in every child’s DNA, so they’ll be pleased to own this sickly baby doll who needs constant medical care.

Lulu’s nose and forehead light up bright red when she’s coming down with a fever. She even lets out a big sneeze! It’s up to your little one to treat her with the included stethoscope, thermometer, tissue, spoon and bottle.

10. Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Ultimate Learning Bot

A robot for a play pal? Just hear us out.

The latest from Fisher-Price prepares babies, infants and toddlers for school by teaching them numbers, shapes, colors, the alphabet and more basics. Programmed with three Smart Stages learning levels, this motorized bot is also musical and extremely interactive. There’s no way he won’t be your child’s first friend.

11. VTech KidiZoom PrintCam Digital Camera and Printer

If they’re hounding you for a smartphone just so they can take pictures and play games, give them this multi-functional camera instead. Not only will they enjoy photos and panoramic black-and-white pics that print instantly, they’ll also be able to create stickers, drawings, comic strips and greeting cards out of their snapshots.

Expect to find three built-in video games, a rechargeable battery, one paper roll and 150+ photo effects and activities.

12. Ryan’s World Lost City Adventures - Mega Adventure Chest

Prepare to watch their imaginations soar with this revelatory treasure chest. Based on the popular YouTube channel, it contains four Lost City-themed figures, one 6-inch Golden Gus figure, one game code card, one spinner compass, one nylon belt with buckle and much, much more.

13. "PAW Patrol: The Movie" Ultimate City Tower Playset

Measuring 3 feet tall, this tower is chock-full of sound effects, lights and pup toy figures that’ll delight any PAW Patrol diehard. It’s the type of toy that can make the kiddos forget to open the rest of their presents on Christmas morning (so it’s probably best to give it to them last).

14. SORRY! Giant Edition

This classic board game just got a GIANT makeover. Yes, we went there.

It’s now a 64” x 64” vinyl mat with life-size pawns that players can move or “slide” on their way to victory. Family entertainment for both indoors and outdoors, SORRY! can help kids develop strategy skills, improve concentration and understand the importance of sportsmanship.

15. Spider-Man Super Web Slinger

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man doesn’t return to theaters until December 17, but his web slinger is on the market right now! Buy it for the aspiring superhero at home and watch in amusement as he takes down enemies with his can of web fluid.

16. Kryptonics Complete Cruiser Skateboard

They’ve mastered the bicycle. Now it’s time they excel at the skateboard.

This cruiser from Kryptonics bears a super wide design so the rider can have full control and easy braking when taking it for a spin. Its soft wheels and durable 8-ply laminated wood deck further add to the board’s safety.

17. HALO Rise Above Supreme Big Wheel Scooter

If you’re debating between getting your kid a bike or scooter, just remember the latter is foldable for easy storage.

18. Magic Mixies Magical Misting Cauldron

Why spend exorbitant amounts of money buying a pet when your children can magically create one right before your eyes? With this cauldron, they’ll be able to mix potions, test spells and tap their wand to produce a furry “Magic Mixie” that makes over 50 sounds and reactions.

19. Tamagotchi Pix

Tamagotchi is having a moment—again.

The current generation can experience the same joys of raising a virtual pet that we did, but with more fun perks (and a colored digital screen). They can utilize the built-in camera to take pictures or press buttons to play various games, customize items and send their character off on playdates. Jealous yet?

20. Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Rising Cake Oven Play

Play-Doh will never go out of style. It’s a fact we’ve accepted long ago because every kit only gets better than the last. Exhibit A: this kitchen set.

Tiny bakers can mold their colorful Play-Doh into dessert pans that’ll fit inside the pretend oven, then watch as their creations rise into full-blown cakes. Be ready to serve as “taste tester” once they’re satisfied with the final product.

21. Pop-Its

Bubble fidget toys are everywhere, for good reason. Their soothing popping mechanism relieves stress and anxiety and assists with developing fine motor skills. Safe, cheap and portable fun, they should be on every parent’s child’s wish list this season.
