Top 30 Toy Trends in April

From Fantastical Robot Toys to Buildable Sci-Fi Helmets

— May 2, 2020 — Life-Stages
These April 2020 toy trends range from fantastical robot toys to buildable sci-fi helmets.

Standouts include VTech's newest collection of interactive robot toys -- after its Myla the Magical Unicorn release, the brand introduces six new robot toys that are part of Myla's Sparkling Friends collection -- and LEGO's intricate Star Wars toy kits. The kits encourage multi-generational play with up to 600 pieces and are sold with accompanying display sets for collectors and those looking to show off their finished creations.

Another notable example is IKEA's Dutig Pizza Set. The low-tech toy encourages more hands-on play versus screen time and consists of 24 felt ingredients and a felt pizza dough base. The machine-washable toy teaches children about food and encourages pretend cooking that can be translated to real life as they learn and grow.
