Google Just Released the 13 Top Trending Toys for Christmas This Year—Here's What to Shop
Shopping for your kids during the holiday season is as stressful as it is heart-warming. Nothing beats the look on their faces when they finally open their presents under the tree, but the process of getting it all done is draining for most parents. If you're struggling to find the perfect gift for your child, Google is making it a little easier.
Google recently released a list of the top 100 gifts of 2021 that predicts the biggest trending items over the holidays based on its search data. There you'll find popular items in several categories like gaming, beauty and fragrance, tech, kitchen items, sports and fitness, and of course, toys. While you could find the right gift for everyone on this list, toys always seem to sell out the fastest.
With expected shipping delays and manufacturing shortages on top of the regular holiday shopping rush, you shouldn't wait until after Thanksgiving to shop for gifts. Most of these top trending toys are available online, but we predict they'll be gone before you know it.
Highly-priced items like the Paw Patrol Ultimate City Tower or doll houses from Barbie and KidKraft are available to shop at Amazon and Walmart. You can also find affordable toys like a Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber for $13 and the Bratz Cameron doll for $25. Ahead, shop these popular toys at retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Target while supplies last.
