Top 65 Toy Trends in March

From Talking Hamster Toys to Culture-Themed Card Games

— March 31, 2020 — Life-Stages
These March 2020 toy innovations range from culture-themed card games to talking hamster toys.

When it comes to the month's interactive toys, a number of robotic pet examples stand out and include Yoego-Direct's Yoego Talking Hamster toy that is designed to repeat phrases and the FurReal Cubby bear -- a teddy bear plush that features programmable and interactive day and night modes. Additionally, Pom Pom Pets' Pomsies Luna toys are malleable and designed to be worn or attached to clothing and accessories. The cute toys are not only easy to customize but also feature light-up eyes.

Other March 2020 toy innovations include Moon Picnic's collaboration with Erzi. The brands' handcrafted mushroom toys are made in Germany out of beechwood and are sold in a 15-piece set with a carrying basket. Each teaches children about various mushroom varieties and is a sustainable toy option that is low-tech and hands-on.
