Top 30 Toy Innovations in September

From Sci-Fi Barbie Dolls to Emotive Object Collectibles

— September 29, 2019 — Life-Stages
The top September 2019 toy ideas are full of fun characters and forms that are being reinvented to delight new audiences.

While The Hangrees from MGA is full of pop culture parodies, MojiPops introduce kids to tiny collectibles with expressive faces that are based on emojis. Toy collectors of all ages will also appreciate the sci-fi fashion dolls released by Mattel & Disney, which reimagine classic female Star Wars characters.

For its 70th anniversary, Clue is teaming up with design site Houzz to give fans the chance to decide how the newest version of its board game will be remodeled. And as puzzle cubes are notoriously challenging to solve, the app-paired Spin! Magic Cube provides players with assistance at any point in their color-matching journey.
