Every year, new toys come onto the market that become the biggest trend for that year. I am sure everyone can remember the toy that every kid wanted when they were a child, and 2022 will be no different. So, new year, new play, let’s see the kid’s toy trends for 2022.
With many people and children being at home over the past couple of years, 2022 looks to be the year for outdoor toys such as kids ride on Lamborghini’s and other outdoor activity toys.
Playing outside will become more important as parents want to let their kids play and experience the world around them.
Another trend we will see is exploring nature and how it grows and develops. This may take the form of learning the life cycle of insects to identify types of plants and flowers.
Kidult Toys and Games
Playing and interacting with your children has a huge benefit for your kid’s development and social interaction.
In 2022, it is expected that the growing toy industry will produce more toys that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults.
Many of these have been around for years such as Lego, puzzle games, and interactive computer games.
However, there will also be cooking kits that kids and families can do together, along with learning pottery and paint shells.
Music and Movement
You only have to look at social media platforms such as Tik Tok and YouTube to see that music and dancing have become huge in recent years.
This trend is thought to become a big part of toy manufacture in 2022 with karaoke sets, musical instruments, and dance mats just some of the toys that could be hitting the shelves.
You may also see a number of interactive music games coming to PC and consoles that use external accessories or mobile phones to sing or dance.
Complex Toys to Build Emotional Responsibility
With sustainability and conservation at the forefront of people’s minds, it is thought more emotionally responsible toys will come to the market in 2022.
Not only will the way toys are made and packaged beconscious of the environment, but the toys themselves will try to teach children to become more responsible about the world and their place in it.
These toys could include complex dolls, conversation cubes, and gardening games.
Toy Characters Linked to TV and Movies
Characters from kid’s TV and movies have always been a popular addition to the toy trends. In 2022 you can expect more of the same with Star Wars and Marvel still dominating the toy market.
Toys from YouTubers are also popular along with computer games such as Fortnite and Lego. These characters will include interactive toys as well as soft toys such as Baby Yoda.
While some toys remain popular favourites year after year, there are always new additions that come along as well as previously popular toys that fall by the side. New year, new play, kid’s toy trends for 2022 is certainly going to be a mixed bag.
