The best 8 kids’ toys of 2022

Whether you’re after fun toy ideas for Christmas and birthday gifts, or you’re looking for educational sets for your little one, read on for some of our best toys of 2022.

Squishmallows

These super soft and cuddly plush toys have been around since 2017 but have continued to soar in popularity this year. Kids can’t get enough of these squishy plushies and with the huge range of shapes, colours and sizes, there’s something for everyone. Choose from animals, fruits and even planets!

LEGO

A list of top toys would not be complete without LEGO. The classic interlocking blocks have evolved enormously over the years, delighting new generations of fans every decade. LEGO provides fun for the whole family, with many adults even finding it hard to resist the urge to build their own creations. Shop from a range of classic bricks and bases and LEGO Friends or LEGO City sets for little ones. If it’s a more challenging build you’re after, try your hand at the Harry Potter and Star Wars themed models.

Educational toys

STEM (or STEAM) stands for ‘Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics’ These are the best toys to encourage learning for curious minds, as they combine education and fun. From robots and telescopes to volcano kits, STEM toys are growing in popularity and inspiring the next generation of experts.

Fidget toys

Sensory and fidget toys are a popular choice and can be hugely beneficial for little ones, creating a sense of calm and encouraging creativity. Our range includes slime, stress balls, squishies, ‘pop its’ and more – perfect for those who love sensory play.

Kids’ ride-on cars

The perfect choice for adventurous kids, electric ride-on cars provide endless hours of fun. Choose from limited edition Mercedes and Audi replicas, or if your little one is less impressed by luxury, an electric motorcycle or excavator is also bound to be a hit.

Board games

These boredom busters will never go out of style, with family board games remaining a firm favourite in 2022. Whether you love the classics like Monopoly or Scrabble, or you’re keen to try a newer game like Quiddler, board games are a popular way to spend time with the kids.

Pretend play

Children love to mimic the activities they see adults doing, like cooking or mowing the lawn. Some of the best toys now look like the real deal, with kitchens, workbenches and mowers becoming an increasingly a popular choice for young kids.

Anything with wheels

Much like the other toys on this list, bikes and scooters (and anything else on wheels) will always be a popular toy for little ones. Depending on their age and ability, discover our range of scooters, balance bikes, trikes and bikes with training wheels.
