Top 70 Toy Trends in March

From STEM Playground Toys to Kid-Friendly Exercise Machines

— March 26, 2017 — Tech
These March 2017 toy trends feature a diverse range of products, including educational science games, interactive machines that promote good health and realistic action figures of iconic artists.

To keep up with current pop culture, Mattel released a new Barbie doll that's styled after Gigi Hadid, which follows models of Zendaya and plus-size icon Ashley Graham. The Barbie that represents Gigi Hadid comes dressed in Tommy Hilfiger garments, due to the recent collaboration between the supermodel and the brand.

Adventurous consumers are likely to appreciate the Rover Land and Sea Amphibious RC Car, which is also featured in these March 2017 toy trends. Capable of performing in a variety of different environments, the versatile robots are perfect for exploring tight spaces and capturing footage.
