Top 30 Toy Ideas in August

From Aquatic Ball Games to Iconic Replica Movie Cars

— September 3, 2018 — Life-Stages
The August 2018 toy ideas cover a range of board games, outdoor activities, interactive toys for kids, collectible cereal box prizes, and more.

For those who value luxurious touches, there's the Frescobol Carioca Beach Bat Set. The beautifully crafted bats are made from handcrafted pine, with neoprene gripping on the handles allowing users to keep a tight grip as they swing. The set also comes with two balls, which feature deep navy and white colorways, and are finished off with elegant branding.

Also highlighted is the Brio Smart Engine Set, which is a responsive children's toy that's made to react to different signals to enhance the experience and teach kids more about the basics of engineering. Due to the smart sensor technology, the engine moves autonomously through the course, while responding to any barriers in its way.
