Wondering what toys kids will love this year? The top toys of 2023 lists are starting to roll in, so you'll know just what kids are wanting for Christmas. As a mother myself, I know that choosing the most joy-inducing Christmas gifts for our kids isn’t always easy, so every shortcut is welcome. Which is why I've put together this definitive list of all the Top Toys for the festive season for this year.

“Knowing what to buy a child, even your own, is a minefield,” says HELLO! Online Commerce Partnerships Editor and busy mum Carla Challis. “There's so much choice that I often find myself stumped, and become overwhelmed with by it all. Or, I end up buying something similar to what my kid has rather than something a little different.

"To save time (and my sanity) I always look to a top toys list for inspiration - I don't have time to be researching what's hot this year in the toy world but these lists save us busy parents time. And for that, it's priceless."

With even more challenges like shortages and delivery issues these days, early online shopping is the way to go to get ahead of the Christmas rush. And we're making toy shopping even more simple for you by giving you ALL the key trending toy lists from retailers and brands for 2023.

How are the Top Toys for 2023 chosen?

Retailers like Amazon, John Lewis and Macy's, and toy brands like Mattel and Hasbro thankfully make it easy with their annual Top Toys for Christmas lists, revealing the toys that boys and girls are most asking Santa for each year.

Our Top Toys 2023 list includes the expert recommendations from the world's most famous toy companies and retailers. Of course, we also use our expertise here at HELLO! to highlight certain toys from the various Top Toys lists based on both what parents here at HELLO! are shopping and what our readers have flocked to in the past, with priority given to the toys recognised as trending for this year.

Many of the toys on the list are popular globally, so where possible I've included pricing for both the UK and US.

Top toys for Christmas 2023: What's HOT

This year has been quite a landmark time for films with toy tie-ins, including The Little Mermaid, with Halle Bailey as Ariel, and the Margot Robbie-starring Barbie movie. It's no surprise that kids and grown-ups alike have been flocking to the shops on- and offline to make sure they have the newest toys for their collections.

The Barbie Dream House is the most fun fantasy accommodation you could imagine, and with the Barbie film, there was even a real-life Air BnB version – John Legend and Chrissy Teigen and their family were even among the guests who tried it out for themselves! For 2023, there's a brand new toy version of the Dream House - and it even include the pink slide that Barbie herself Margot Robbie said was her favourite feature!

The Little Mermaid Ariel doll was a top-seller for HELLO! readers when the film was released, and if your little one doesn't have theirs yet, now's the time to shop to be sure they'll have one under the tree.

What are the top toy brands & retailers for Christmas 2023?

As of August 2023, new Top Toys lists have been unveiled as we speak, for example John Lewis's all-new edit. We're expecting new lists from trusted retailers like Amazon, Hamleys, Selfridges, Macy's and more - so I'll be updating our edit throughout the shopping season. Be sure to bookmark and keep checking back!

And in case you want to see what's been popular in the past, we've also included last year's hits. So in this round-up of both new season toys AND the most popular toys from the past year, you'll find red hot buys for LOL Surprise, Paw Patrol, Playmobil, Star Wars, Barbie and LEGO. 

You'll also find teaching toys about everything from the environment to emotions and interactive pets, too – plus cutting-edge STEM gifts for the science-loving kid in your life and family classic games like Monopoly and Uno.

So... let's get Christmas shopping!

Mattel's Top Toys 2023

Mattel is one of the hottest toy brands on the planet right now - and its list of trending favourites includes some of the most sought after characters, from Barbie to Monster High and Pokemon and Hot Wheels, which is set to get a big screen adaptation following in the success of the Barbie movie.
