    1. A flying orb with flashing lights that'll float in the air or boomerang back to you leaving everyone in the room asking "what is this sorcery?",

    Promising review: "This toy is so much fun, it can be used in so many ways. It’s not your usual floating toy. It can be used to float and play with like others in its class but this one can do a few extra things like a boomerang you can throw it at an angle and it actually comes back to you. You can also throw it directly at a target, which also makes fun for throwing it back and forth with a friend or you can hover it and have it fly around the room. It charges fast and can be played with for around 20 minutes before needing another charge. My son really enjoyed this toy!" —Natalie

    2. A Mattel Flushin' Frenzy game that involves plunging the toilet, bracing yourself for the fake poop to come flying out, and using your fast reflexes to be the first player to grab it midair. Kids (and fully grown adults) who delight in toilet humor will get a total kick out of this.,

    Promising review: "My 5-year-old niece loves it! What can be said really? It's a game where you use a toy plunger to make a smiling rubber poop fly through the air to be caught for points. My niece, like many little kids, is going through a phase where anything related to poop is absolutely hilarious, so I thought this game would be just the thing for her. She loves it! The game is very easy to pick up for 4- and 5-year-olds, the components are well-made, and the poop is...oddly realistic, except for its smiling face of course. This is without a doubt the cleanest option for playing with poop on the market. Your kids'll love it." —Brendan Williams

    Promising review: "This game is hilarious, my 2 1/2-year-old couldn't get enough of it. As a 44-year-old adult male, I had a great time playing it. I bought this into my work, some colleagues and myself had a good time playing this, I think it could make for a fun drinking game as well." —Buyer

    3. A pack of Crayola Globbles so your mini tornadoes can run around the house hurling these sticky globs at the wall or ceiling. Don't panic parents, reviewers say they don't leave a sticky residue.


    Promising review: "I waited over two months to write my review! My 4-year-old daughter plays with these DAILY! YES they do attract dirt and hair HOWEVER they are so easy to rinse off its not a big deal! We took these to a family gathering and ended up giving two away because they were SO loved! The two we gave away went to a 12-year-old and my 19-year-old brother. They discovered throwing them at the ceiling fan and watching them shoot across the room which was pretty entertaining! None of them have busted or ripped and they are definitely NOT gentle with them! I will definitely be buying more!" —Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "Amazing toys! My 1- and 2-year-old LOVE them! They scream "sticky balls!" and run around throwing them on the fridge, windows, cabinets, walls, etc. Easy to wash and air dry, and don't lose their stickiness! My new go-to gift! Love them!"Rachel

    Promising review: "A total hit! My 3-year-old loved this Barbie! She had so much fun opening up the surprises and doing the water color reveal. I loved that it came with the perfect container to dip the Barbie in. We’ve had so much fun experimenting with warm and cold water to see her color change. Definitely a must-have! Will purchase as gifts for friends for upcoming birthdays!" —Jaime86

She noted how one of the packages looked so real that they even had a word search on it. The detail is awesome and they are so fun to collect! She really wants to get some rare ones so hopefully we’ll find them soon!" —Heidi M.

    7. A Disney Doorables box because is there anything more ~adoorable~ than peeking behind a door to find surprise mini Disney characters? It's impossible *not* to want to collect them all.


    Each box includes either five, six, or seven collectible figures, approximately 1.5 inches tall, featuring stylized detailing and sparkly glitter eyes.

    Promising review: "I buy these for my 6-year-old granddaughter and they never fail to WOW!! Each one is different and unique and totally adorable. She has quite the collection but they are getting really difficult to find." —Margie M.

    8. A fairy finder jar that'll have little ones convinced that fairies live in their own home and backyard. It even magically glows when they catch virtual fairies on a fairy hunt. Once a fairy makes a home in the jar, it's theirs to feed and play with.

    A rainbow colored jar with virtual fairies flying around it

    Promising review: "My kids are obsessed with this toy. They really think there are fairies flying around in there =) My son took it and found a bunch of fairies in the back yard so I had to grab it and give it back to his sister so she could find some too! Super easy to use, and so fun to see the fairies on the little screen. The lights are really magical, especially in the dark. It's becoming part of our bedtime routine. I got one for her cousin too, so they're going to try trading fairies this weekend. The only problem is now they want the other two jars!" —Walmart customer

    10. Or a set of rainbow popping toys for fidgety hands looking for a satisfyingly cute and infinitely reusable Bubble Wrap experience.


    Promising review: "Got these because my niece who is 8 has some and my 1-year-old baby loved them so I had to get her some. She stayed quiet and occupied for hours with these. I love how the insides have pictures on them and especially love that the heart-shaped one has ABC’s on each dot. Not sure if the green part of the pineapple is supposed to be able to be removed but it comes off with ease." —deara

    11. And for babies and toddlers, the Dimpl aka a portable sensory toy simply designed with five vibrant silicone bubbles — yet if the 15,000 5-star (!!!) reviews are to be believed it'll hold your munchkin's attention for a while.


    This BPA-free toy has and is recommended for babies and toddlers ages 10 months+.

    Promising review: "I bought this toy for a long-haul plane ride (12 hours) with a 15-month-old child. It was the perfect toy as there were no parts to lose, and she loved it! It was just challenging enough to keep her occupied for small chunks of time. When we arrived at our destination, she continued to play with it. It's great for restaurants and at home. Once she pushed all the 'dimples' through to one side, she would turn it over and start again. It's also small enough to pop into a pocket or bag for transport. Excellent toy!" —EK

    Promising review: "This toy is so simple yet very versatile. I'm a pediatric physical therapist, who works with infants with special needs. I bought this toy to use for work to keep babies busy and to use as motivation. I use it for tracking, motivation, teething, reaching, hand and arm strengthening. Surprisingly however, the older children I work with, many school aged with Autism also love this toy! It provides wonderful sensory input and sensory stimulation but also acts as a perfect fidget toy for all ages. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE: This toy needs a strap!!! to hook onto strollers or diaper bags, so it doesn't get lost." —cmrvs

    12. A small but mighty bubble gun capable of pumping out a gazillion bubbles a minute that'll have your kids bursting with a level of bubble-induced joy that I simply can't put into words.


    The set includes a bubble gun, a bubble plate, a bubble bottle, five concentrated bubble solutions and instructions.

    Promising review: "Got these for my three kiddos and they LOVED them! You do have to continuously dip them in the bubble solution BUT that’s okay because it does make a bunch of bubbles. My son saw it on TikTok and just needed to see if they were as awesome and they are. My 1-year-old can easily use them as well, super easy and lightweight for her little hands." —vulpesvulpes

    Promising review: "This thing is a real bubble blowing machine. It took only a few seconds for my 3-year-old to completely fill a room to the gills with her own version of heaven. That alone makes this product worth the buy even if it never works again that smile and joy will be enough. If your kids love bubbles as much as mine, do yourself a favor and buy a few of these, you won't be sorry." —Momma2Many

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors and also in a two-pack).

    13. A kids' selfie camera to ensure future influencers are well-equipped on their journey to becoming Instagram famous.

    Reviewer's photo of child holding the toy camera in pink

    Promising review: "I gave this to my granddaughter for her fourth birthday. She had been asking for a camera of her own for a little while. The camera itself is of great quality for a kiddie camera, the parents appreciated that it was digital and not Polaroid and my granddaughter was actually able to use independently with ease, after we taught her how. I would purchase again, and I highly recommend it to others." —The-Way-I-C-it

    14. A Rainbow Jellies Creation Kit that comes with everything you need — including hair, molds and magic goo — to make four of your own super cute Troll-like squishy animals. IDK who'll have more fun with this activity, kids or parents?


    The kit includes four cloud molds, four keychains, four face plates, four hair pieces, four hair charms, four magic goos, one rainbow jellies cloud, and an instruction sheet.

    To make a Rainbow Jelly, choose a face and piece of hair, pop them in a cloud mold, close it up, fill it with a pouch of magic goo and in 45 minutes, you’ll have a a cute squishy.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best toys/projects we have ever had. Got these for my 5-year-old. They were so fun to make. she loved it. If you have a smaller child they will need help. It comes with a pack that has two of what looks like laundry pods. Each pod filled with a squishy mix) inside of it. They have to be popped which wasn’t something my child could do. The two pods stay inside the pack they come in. You just bust them open, and then knead the pack until mixed. No slime mess to clean up after. That’s a win in itself. When we popped the little guys out they were all perfectly formed with no flaws. As for me I would buy this set again and again for our home. You get to pick the face, hair and body color for each animals. So even if you have two of this model you can make the animals look completely different. I would have loved this as a child." —BBKSHmomma

    15. A wireless karaoke mic so pint-sized rock stars can stage *epic* performances in the living room. The only downfall is you might need to invest in noise-cancelling headphones.


    Promising review: "My 8-year-old daughter loved this birthday gift. The only problem is that my 6-year-old and 12-year-old daughters love it too, so now I have to purchase two more." —Carl Fowler

    16. An ingenious remote-control stunt car you can control with your hand (using a sensor watch that straps onto your wrist) to make it perform 360-degree spins and other seriously cool tricks.


    Promising review: "Bought for my 7-year-old for her birthday. She saw it on TikTok and when I found it on here I was very excited. She loves it. The hand control works great too. It plays dance music while it dances lol. Very entertaining. Everyone likes taking turns using it. Even the teenagers like playing with it. Hell even MOM wants a turn haha. Decent battery life and hasn't broken yet. Seems good for the amount of money we spent." —michael

    17. An Orbeez Challenge playset with beads that soak up water to expand into bouncy jelly-like balls *and* tools so the kiddos can roll, shape, and crush the Orbeez. The world is their creative, sensory oyster.

    Promising review: "My son loved the sensory play with these Orbeez rainbow beads — we were both shocked by how large they grew in water! They provided hours of creative play for my 8-year old and eventually he ended up putting them in a glass vase as decoration! He will still pour them out every week for some play time and has enjoyed them in the bath as well -- just be sure to properly scoop all the beads out b/c they should not go down the drain! Great gift for kiddos with lots of hands-on play!" —Sara Ahmed

    Octopus plush that is orange and smiley on one side and blue and frowny on the other

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter who absolutely adores this little octopus. She prefers the 'grumpy' side which is just as cute as the happy side. It's easy to turn inside out and keeps its shape. Also, I was happily surprised it is larger than I thought. Definitely worth 5 stars!" —EmilyT
