Santa take note: Walmart releases Top-Rated by Kids Toy List

Walmart has revealed its highly anticipated list of the hottest toys for the 2021 holiday season. Selected by “kid experts”, this year’s list includes 39 toys, 16 of them Walmart exclusives. 

 The toys fall into six categories, Awakening Imagination, Edutainment Expression, Fresh Air Fun, Not So Pretend Pets, On-Screen and Streaming Favorites and Timeless Toys. Key picks range from the top-of-the-range 12V Jeep Gladiator Children’s Ride On ($369.00) to more budget-friendly buys such as the VTech Hover Pup ($24.97) and Kinetic Sand Sandisfactory ($19.94).    

 Kids can experience the Top-Rated by Kids toys, and more, from the comfort of home, via the Walmart Wonder Lab, an online destination powered by eko where kids can virtually unbox, test and play with hundreds of toys from the store’s toy aisles.
