What are the hot toys of 2021? Every year, certain toys are the “it” toys — you know, the ones that stores can’t seem to keep in stock.

We’re seeing some trends appear at the beginning of the 2021 holiday shopping season. Rather than get caught off guard and empty-handed, study this list and buy as soon as you’re able — to avoid overpaying late in the season.

There is already chatter about a toy shortage, so if you’ve been hearing of any of these hot items being mentioned, I would scoop them up as soon as you can!

Make sure to bookmark the KCL Toy Deals page, and we’ll keep you informed during the holidays.
