Top 35 Toys Trends in July

From DIY-Style Light-Up Circuit Art to Sitcom Building Block Sets

— July 27, 2019 — Life-Stages
The majority of the products in the July 2019 toys round-up are centered around education, DIY sensibilities or both. Both engage children in a practicality-oriented environment, meaning that aside from playtime and entertainment, individuals will have the opportunity to expand their horizons and learn something new — whether that be a fact or a skill.

The former category includes various products that embrace skill building through hands-on methods. The Yahboom Omnibox Robot, for example, is specially designed to get kids comfortable with coding. The Electro Dough Plus Kit, on the other hand, assists them in grasping the concept of electricity.

In terms of DIY-style play, the July 2019 toys list reveals that many brands are keeping it traditional, yet exciting. While Klutz is boasting a make-your-own lip gloss, Clementoni gives you the opportunity to craft-your-own crystals.
