In today’s on-demand world, let’s all be thankful that we don’t have to watch scary ads for toys and cereal just so our kids can watch family TV. But without those enthusiastic ads assaulting our senses, adults might not always know about this year’s hot new toys and gifts our kids are going to be asking us (or Santa Claus) for this holiday season. The folks at Target know this, so they’ve put together an easy-to-buy list of the 50 Best Bullseye Toys of 2021.
We’re not sure how Target (or even the Bullseye mascot, as the list suggests) picked the toys that make the cut, but it looks like the retailer has a good idea of what the kids love, be it the culture. pop, imaginative play, or video games. Some of these toys are Target exclusives, like a Raya and the last dragon Land of Kumandra and Throw Throw Avocado bundle, a “dodge ball card game” from the makers of Exploding Kittens. Others, like the Nintendo Switch, are favorites that are guaranteed to be on some children’s wish lists.

This year’s best toys include familiar faces, as you might expect. There’s Barbie who lives in a fabulous new Dreamhouse with a two-story waterslide, a barbecue on the third-story patio, and an indoor swing. Barb can be outdone by the giant eyed LOL dolls, which are available in a set of 12 (two larger OMGs, six LOL Surprise dolls, two pets and two Lil Sisters), packed in their own movie studio with four scenes sound. Meanwhile, The Mandalorian is back in Lego form, this time with a forge to make this infamous armor (sorry kids, it’s still plastic).

While many of us will be using Target’s Top 50 list to start our holiday shopping, we may also be giving these gifts to our kids earlier, in the name of a smoother transition to play days at home. interior. That could mean picking up a jumbo sized Pop It! for restless hands. Or we could set up this Melissa and Doug Ranger Cabin play tent and canoe in the living room while we recall our warm weather adventures.
