Top 30 Toy Trends in April

From Magnetic Office Stress Relievers to GPS Adventure Games

— April 29, 2017 — Tech
These April 2017 toy trends include collectible plush animals, miniature pickup trucks for children, biology-focused games, and much more.

The Cheesy Puffs XL Plush toy is a part of KIDROBOT's Yummy World collection, and emulates the shape of a bag of the circular snacks. To give the snacks a friendlier appearance, each of the furry orange spheres has a smiling face imbued on one side. All of the faux snacks can be removed from the plush bag, which features a transparent window on the front, and has a secure zipper closure.

Also featured in these April 2017 toy trends is the Eco-Eggs Carton, which allows children to dye Easter eggs in a natural way. Instead of using potentially harmful dyes, the kits make use of the extracts of vegetables, fruits, and flowers.
