Top 30 Toy Trends in September

From Transforming Camera Toys to Modern 1920s Dolls

— September 11, 2022 — Life-Stages
The most popular September 2022 toys offer a look at some of the items that will be on kids' wish lists this holiday season, including everything from plush companions to help kids sleep better at night to toys that teach STEM or mimic spellcasting.

To go along with the exciting science news on astronomy, astrobiology and space exploration as of late, kids of all ages are finding an interest in space-themed tabletop games and rechargeable rocket kits.

Opposite to toys that encourage fantasies and imaginations to run wild, toys like postal service-themed board games and medical preparation toys help to equip kids with practical skills, knowledge and peace of mind that will support them in the real world.
