Amazon is already decking the halls, with the release today of its top 100 toys and games list for holiday 2018.
STEM is once again expected to be a strong force in holiday sales this year, with Kano’s Harry Potter coding kit (pictured) and littleBits’ Avengers Hero inventor kit making Amazon’s cut and joining three-year list veteran, Anki’s Cozmo robot.
Plush has been pegged as another top category, with an assist from animatronic products such as the furReal Munchin’ Rex and the Pomsies Patches plush interactive toys.
And classic brands should also continue to deliver, with the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall building kit taking one of the top spots on Amazon’s list. Other classic brands highlighted by the retailer include NERF, Barbie and Hot Wheels.
