Toy to the World: Target Reveals Top Toy List for 2015

September 9, 2015 - Article reads in

Target's annual Top Toys list, which names the hottest kids wish-list items for the 2015 holiday season, is here!  

News flash: Razor scooters are as cool as ever, and familiar video games—Guitar Hero Live, anyone?—are sure to make many a wish list. The 2015 line up is of course stocked with new goodies like the Target exclusive Nitro Stealth Stinger Skylanders—a super-cool sky vehicle—and FurReal Star Lily Unicorn. And for all Star Wars fans, you’ll definitely want to #ShoptheForce, because the Target exclusive, remote-control BB-8 Droid is bringing a lot of buzz.

And then there are “STEM” toys (STEM is the cool and quick abbreviation for: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) like the WoWWee REV (Robotic Enhanced Vehicles) and Meccano Meccanoid personal robot that light up circuits of imagination, play and education for kids up to 12 years old.

For those lamenting the good ol’ days with non-robotics, retro toys and board games are also taking center stage. Plenty of classic brands—Hot Wheels, Barbie and LEGO—and cinema staples—Frozen and AVENGERS—have a reserved spot atop the holiday gift pile for young fans as well. Even better, some of the 2014 must-haves reappear in updated renditions; remember the Wubble Bubble Ball? (You may recognize it from the TargetStyle in Vogue spread!) Well, it’s back and better than ever as the Wubble X. The common ground for all hot 2015 toys? Customization and personalization that empower creativity.
