Recently I had the honor of *virtually* attending Toy Insider's Holiday of Play! This virtual conference featured a 360, totally immersive and interactive digital showroom with breakout Zoom meetings and live toy demos. I got a glimpse into what the hot toy trends will be for the 2020 holiday season and now I'm recapping 10 of my 10 favorites!
Toy Insider's Holiday of Play 2020 - 10 Toys to Look for This Holiday Season
There was so much to see at Toy Insider's Holiday of Play! I am still trying to wrap my. head around all of the fun toys that will be available this holiday season but I've picked 10 to start that will be perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.
Holiday of Play: Toys Under $15
What child doesn't love a surprise toy? With Ravel Tales kids won't know what new soft friend they have until they unravel the yarn to reveal!
With VIP Pets your child never knows what kind of hair their pet will have until after they pour some water water on the dissolving towel covering their new pet's head. I also love that the packaging for VIP Pets is a hair spray canister! If you have a little who loves brushing your hair or playing with doll's hair, this will make a great gift for them!
Holiday of Play: Favorite Characters
Blue's Clues & You! Dance Along Blue
Blue is back and just as cute as ever! Blue's Clues & You: Dance Along Blue dances along to the Blue's Clues & You theme song (she even wiggles her little bottom!)
PAW Patrol: Dino Patroller
You might not believe this but, PAW Patrol Dino Rescue Patroller is the FIRST motorized vehicle from the PAW Patrol toy line!
Baby Shark Dancing DJ
I was dancing in my seat during this live demo! If you think you've gotten Baby Shark out of your head just wait until you hear the fun remixes from Baby Shark Dancing DJ! When playing the Dance Game kids (and adults) can earn stars for the more they dance!

PJ Masks 2 in 1 Mobile HQ
The PJ Masks are on their way to save the day with their mobile HQ truck that transforms into 3ft tall, 5 levels of fun!
Holiday of Play: Screen-Free Learning Fun
Story time is about to get kicked up a notch thanks to Tonies! This unique box and it's character adapters (they have Disney characters!) tell your child stories. The best part? Once the character is initially loaded, Tonies does not require a WiFi signal to play it back. One of the adapters even allows for kids (and parents) to record their voice singing, reading etc, to be played back whenever they want!
LeapFrog's Speak & Learn Puppy
In my house, we have both Violet and Scout and I know Bailey will make a great addition to the crew! The Speak & Learn Puppy will have conversations with your child as Bailey repeats what they say and asks questions to keep the convo going!
Holiday of Play: 18 Months+
Cry Babies Goodnight Cony
Unlike other Cry Babies, Goodnight Cony's tears are lights NOT water which makes this baby the perfect bedtime, snuggle pal!
Holiday of Play: Most Unique Unboxing
Talk about a fun unboxing experience! Present Pets unbox themselves! Pull the tab and watch as your new pup breaks through the box (and takes a break in the middle) watching the puppy break-free is part of the fun! These pups have more than 100 sounds and actions!
These are just 10 of the fun toys for this holiday season. I am putting together MULTIPLE gift guides that will feature even more of the toys and games I learned about during Toy Insider's Holiday of Play; games that are perfect for Family Game Night, Toys for 0-3, Toys for 3-6 and a few more so be sure to check back soon!
