The Amazon Top Holiday Toys list for 2022 is out, and there are over 100 new and exciting toys that have made the list! In addition to the new toys, several old favorites have made the list, from brands such as Hot Wheels, Lego, and Melissa and Doug. We’ve picked out a few of our favorites to share with you, but make sure to hop over and view the full list of top toys for 2022 on Amazon.
With increasing budget concerns from consumers, affordability is at the forefront of the list, with a few under $10, and the majority of items are under $50. There are a few spendy big ticket items, such as the new Step 2 Camper Playhouse, which has a MSRP of $349.99.
“In 2022, we’re seeing enthusiasm for fresh toys and games from small business brands, as well as learning toys that allow kids to learn with games or arts and crafts projects,” said Anne Carrihill, Amazon’s director of toys and games. “Additionally, action characters from Marvel, Pokémon, and Star Wars are as popular as ever, for both kids and collectors. We can’t wait to see which of our favorites become the hottest gifts of the 2022 holiday season.”
