Top Toy Trends for the Holiday Season from zulily!




Tis’ the season for gifting little ones the toys they’ve been wanting all year long and, this year, it’s not just about play – the most popular toys this season promote learning and creativity!

zulily’s resident toy expert Kenji Yoshinari prepared for a list of trends to keep in mind as you scour the zulily Toy Shop for the perfect gifts that will both entertain and educate your child this season. Read Kenji’s tips here:



·         Use the Force to make sure you give the hottest toys! With the upcoming December 18 premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re sure Star Wars toys and apparel will be flying off the shelves this holiday season. Make sure to purchase early so you don’t miss out!
·         Look out for open-ended building toys. Giving kids the opportunity to let their imagination run wild and not be constrained by instruction manuals is the heart of this hot trend.
·         Switch from STEM to STEAM. Adding the ART component to STEM gives you more ways to introduce creativity and fun to your children’s world of educated play.
·         Customize Your Play! Make the play experience meet who your child is – from personalized rockers and ride-ons, to a doll that looks just like your child.
·         Retro, classic play remains a top trend. Brands and toys that bring back memories of days gone by are at the top of everyone’s list this season.



At online retailer zulily, shoppers have something new to discover each morning including toys, gifts, apparel & accessories, home décor and more. Be sure to check back often on zulily.com or their mobile app to get the best deals for the whole family this holiday season.

My Thoughts

Zulily is the perfect place to get holiday gifts for all the children in your life. They have an extensive collection of clothing and toys available at great everyday low prices that are often up to 50% off retail prices. Here are a few of the top picks on my list.


It's always fun to give your child a gift that you had yourself  when you were growing. This cute retro toy phone is the perfect gift for toddlers. My kids love it because they recognize it as a character from Toy Story 3.


Inspire children's imagination with these natural wood blocks. There are so many amazing things you can create with these, and you can use them over and over again. This set comes in a variety of pretty pastel colors.

This holiday season, Zulily has a huge selection of Stars Wars Merchandise. You can choose from realistic light sabers to stylish apparel. They even have a Darth Vadar toothbrush! 

Any little girl will swoon over this adorable doll play set. Create your own bedroom for your best friend. This is a classic toy that is a magical part of childhood. 

These are only a few examples of the amazing products available  from Zulily. To see all they have to offer this holiday season, be sure to visit their website or follow them via their social media.

I've been a member of the Zulily site for a long time. They have so many items to choose from on a daily basis there is no way you couldn't find something from the newborn to the cousin with the twin 10 yr old boys to your Uncle in his 40's to your grandmother! They have boots, coats & gloves, toys from yesteryear to today, vintage clothes & bathingsuits, to hair accessories! And when you give a friends name & they buy from Zulily you get 15% (or 10% I forget!) off your next order!
