Hot Holiday Toys 2019

The image of a tree decorated from top to bottom in lights and garland, surrounded by toys and gifts is the quintessential holiday image. While adults get excited about deeply discounted 4K UHDTVs and Smart Phones, it’s the image of a child opening the toy that they’ve been wishing for all year that stays with us long after the snow melts. As peaceful as this may sound, the true Black Friday savvy knows that hot holiday toys create some of the most intense fervor and mania of Black Friday.

Of course, the best way to avoid that mania and the headaches that accompany it is to get your toys before the hype reaches a fever pitch, and with that in mind, BFads.net is proud to bring you our list of the hottest holiday toys of 2019.


Nintendo Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Lite

Although traditional toys are what most people think of when it comes to "holiday toys," there is little doubt that the 2019 hardware refresh for the wildly popular Nintendo Switch will top wishlists for kids around the globe. The newest iteration is a dedicated handheld version which removes the ability for it to actually "Switch" from home console to handheld, but with a massive library of hit titles delivering a portable home console experience, increased battery life, fun color variants, and a $100 discount compared to its bigger sibling, there is little room for complaint.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back under the Christmas tree, the Pingfong Baby Shark Official Song Puppet is here to make sure you never stop hearing the year’s runaway hit kid’s song. Available in baby, mommy, and (of course) daddy shark variants, not only does this shark puppet from WowWee play the entire English version of "Baby Shark," but children can move the mouth of the puppet slower or faster to change the tempo of the song.


Skyrocket Blume Doll (Ages 3 & Up)

The in real-life loot box craze has shown no signs of slowing down, with holiday toy books and weekly ads littered with toys that provide a fun box opening experience for kids and come with a variety of toys and accessories inside. The Skyrocket Blume Doll expands on that idea, by coming packaged in a toy pot which springs to live once watered by your child. Within seconds, a colorful beehive-style hairdo emerges atop a fun and collectible doll that comes in dozens of varieties.


L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion Dolls (Ages 6 – 10yrs)

L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion Dolls (Ages 6 – 10yrs)

The LOL Surpise! line of wildly popular unboxing-centric toys has evolved from surprising your child with simple plastic tchotchkes to full blown fashion dolls with a complete wardrobe! If your child loves the unboxing experience but wants more of a traditional toy once the initial fun is over, the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion Dolls could be the perfect gift for them to find under the tree. After opening 20 surprises including the fully posable fashion doll with accessories including shoes, shoebox, hat box, purse, hair brush and more, the box turns into a dressing room playset.


Treasure X Aliens (Ages 5 – 15yrs)

Treasure X Aliens (Ages 5 – 15yrs)

If you think your child might like the premium unboxing experience found in many popular toys today but believe they would prefer something less cute and more slimy, then Treasure X Aliens should be under your tree this year. The 12-stage unboxing process culminates when the main treasure is found only after good old-fashioned alien autopsy, once the slime, organs, and ribcage are removed, of course. Afterward, the slime can be stored and reused over and over again, thanks to the included container. Speaking of treasure, there is actually a small chance that your child will find a genuine peridot gem inside of the alien!


Owleez Interactive Pet (Ages 6-8yrs)

Owleez Interactive Pet (Ages 6-8yrs)

Ever since Furby became the must-have toy of the 1998 holiday season, toy makers have tooled and improved the idea of an electronic interactive pet with varying levels of innovation. The Owleez Interactive Pet has taken this idea to a new level, in addition to interacting with your child through lights, sound, and touch, Owleez actually allows your child to raise the toy owl from fledgling to full flight. A USB recharging nest means that even when Owleez is an aerial ace, you’ll never have to replace a pair of batteries.


Melissa & Doug Turtle Ball Pit (Ages 9 months – 2 years)

Melissa & Doug Turtle Ball Pit (Ages 9 months – 2 years)

Melissa & Doug continue to keep innovating in the area of old-school style toys that can give your child a break from the connected worlds of LCD screens and electronic interaction. The Turtle Ball bit from Melissa & Doug offers a transformable and interactive experience for your youngster, acting as a large, multi-textured turtle that crinkles and jingles as your child plays with and on the turtle. The zipper on the turtle’s back opens to reveal 60 soft, squeezable balls to play with and is large enough for your child ages 9mo to 2yrs to sit inside.


NERF Fortnite AR-L Elite Dart Blaster (Ages 3yr & Up)

NERF Fortnite AR-L Elite Dart Blaster (Ages 3yr & Up)

NERF is one of those brands that is great at continually reinventing itself while still staying true to its roots. Most recently this has come in the form of brand partnerships with popular video games like Overwatch and, of course, Fortnite. In fact, there are many options for NERF weapons this year inspired by the free to play phenomenon, but the AR-L Elite Dart Blaster stands out thanks to its fully motorized firing of its 20-capacity magazine, flip up sights, and an acceleration button to power up the blaster.


Official Mega Grave Digger All-Terrain Remote-Control Monster Truck (ages 4 -6yrs)

Official Mega Grave Digger All-Terrain Remote-Control Monster Truck (ages 4 -6yrs)

Remote control cars are one of those classic toys that never seem to fall too far out of favor with kids, especially when Monster Jam is upping the ante with their Official Mega Grave Digger RC truck! A 1:6 scale of the actual Grave Digger monster truck, this remote-control car is a monster of its own, measuring over 2 feet long with oversized BKT tires, a 2.4ghz wireless remote for driving this truck over 250 feet away, and a rechargeable battery.



Final Thoughts

Now that the list is out of the way, the only question that remains is big question that faces toy shoppers each and every holiday: should you wait for a toy to go on sale or secure your toy as soon as possible in case it becomes the must-have toy of the holiday season?

If you’re on the fence, here’s a Black Friday Pro Tip: If it looks like the toy you need may become the hit of the season, there is no harm in taking advantage of return periods for stores like Walmart and Target. Grab the toy right away while it’s still available, making sure to hang onto the receipt, and then check back here at BFads.net throughout the holiday to see if we find a price break. Most big box stores will allow you to return the toy for a refund within 90 days, which should carry you well into the holiday season. This way, if a better price comes up, you can return or price match at your retailer, or if the toy sells out, you’ve already got yours ready to tuck away under your tree.
