Hot Holiday Toys Featured in the 2016 Amazon Holiday Toy List

Amazon announced the 2016 Holiday Toy List.

The 2016 Holiday Toy List released by Amazon features a hand-selected list of more than a thousand of the season’s most sought-after Holiday gifts for kids featuring the hottest toys, games for the entire family, electronics, popular books, learning toys and more.

Toys with mobile app connectivity such as Cozmo by Anki and Ravensburger Space Hawk Starter Set are wildly popular this year as kids are looking for new and exciting ways to stimulate their curious minds.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) toys such as the Osmo Genius Kit, Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-a-Pillar and K’NEX Education STEM Explorations: Swing Ride Building Set continue to be popular among Amazon customers.

More and more, kids are getting involved in the maker movement and requesting toys that enable them to tap into their creative side. Kids are loving toy projects such as Thames & Kosmos Crystal Growing, Poppit Playset Bakery and Scientific Explorer Young Architect City Planner Set.

This year, mini figures are causing Mini Madness, and kids want to collect them all! Mini toy sets such as My Mini MixieQ’s Bundle – Mini Rooms, Playsets, and Figures, Squinkies Squinkieville Clubhouse Playset and Twozies Café Playset are popping up on every kid’s wish list.

Amazon expects Star Wars, Trolls and Moana toys to be at the top of wish lists this holiday season, thanks to the upcoming movie releases, with toys such as Star Wars Imperial Stormtrooper, DreamWorks Trolls Glitterific Guy Diamond and Disney Moana Starlight Canoe and Friends to be top sellers.

Trending drones for kids are the Traxxas 7909 Aton Quad-Rotor Helicopter and MOTA JETJAT Nano Camera Video Drone.

“Amazon’s Holiday Toy List features our favorite toys for every child on your list, hand-selected by our team of toy experts. Customers can easily shop Parent Picks, Kid Picks or the top trends for the season to find the perfect toy for every child, all from the comfort of their home or on-the-go from a mobile device or tablet,” said Eva Lorenz, Category Leader of Toys & Games for Amazon. “With millions of toys and games to choose from on Amazon, the Holiday Toy List highlights the best toys and games of the season at the lowest prices with convenient shipping options so parents can spend more precious time with those who give meaning to the season.”

All items on Amazon’s Holiday Toy List will be featured in a daily deal this holiday season, with deals offered on products from top brands such as Disney, PowerWheels, Ravensburger Puzzles, Monster High and Green Toys. Starting today, customers can enjoy up to 40% off select Melissa & Doug Toys, with additional deals on Hasbro Games, Play-Doh, Nerf and FurReal Friends to follow.
