Toy Shopping? Get a Jump on the Next Trendy Toys Kids Will Be Begging For



You never imagined yourself spending hours of your adult life tracking down a doll with a name that looks like a texting autocorrect error. But you don't really know yourself until a tiny, innocent child you adore without limit announces with a calm sincerity that that's what she wants to find under the Christmas tree, do you? Are you going to be her first disappointment? Of course not. And that's how it happens.

How cool would you be, though, if you got ahead of the next trend (and saved yourself a desperate search)? 

MGA Entertainment created L.O.L. Surprise. It also created Little Tikes. So it clearly knows what the kids want. And the company just announced some new toys. Here are a few of those.

  • NA! NA! NA! Surprise 


    This new line of dolls -- Na! Na! Na! Surprise 2-in-1 Pom Fashion Dolls -- comes with the sort of big hair, bold fashion choices, extreme eye-size-to-head ratio, and skilled accessorizing that -- presumably -- made the L.O.L. Surprise dolls such a hit. They have cute names, too: Minna Moody, DJ Cuddles, Britney Sparkles, Sarah Snuggles, Aubrey Heart, and Roxie Foxy. Complete with a thrilling unboxing experience that makes giving these as gifts a blast.

  • My First Mighty Blasters


    These age-appropriate toys shoot soft and safe Power Pods for hours of fun. They were created for the small hands and nascent motor control of the 3- to 5-year-old set.

    You are a brave and generous adult if you choose to arm a child with these. But there is certain to be much laughter. And it's only a squishy ball.

    The Boom Blaster ($14.99) has three power pods. The Dual Blaster ($24.99) can launch two pods at once. And the Mighty Bow ($19.99) turns into a crossbow.

  • Little Baby Bum Wigglin' Wheels on the Bus


    Meet Buster the Bus ($15.99). He's a star of children's TV. Kids cuddle him and he plays the "Wheels on the Bus" song. Squeeze him and he wiggles. Kids who are learning to crawl will get up and go after him.

    There are lots more toys in this cute line for babies and toddlers: Little Baby Bum Twinkle the Star Plush toy ($14.99) for cuddling, Little Baby Bum Wheels on the Bus Climber ($129.99), Little Baby Bum Wheels on the Bus Scoot & Push Ride ($39.99), and more.
