The Walmart Toy List for 2023 is officially here!
Every year ahead of Black Friday sales, retailers like Walmart create a list of the top toys to purchase for the holiday season. In 2023, Walmart dropped their toy list on Aug. 22, featuring a total of 55 must-have toys to buy for kids of all ages. I’m talking about toys from Nerf, CoComelon, Lego, Barbie, and so much more.
Walmart’s top toys are broken out into five major categories:
- Top Toys Under $25
- Blockbuster Hits
- Hang Up & Hang Out
- ’90s Nostalgia Toys
- S.T.E.A.M Toys
Walmart also added over 1,000 new toys to their inventory this year and more than 500 of them are Walmart exclusives. And the best part? You don’t need to pay full price for Walmart’s top toys. We’ll show you how to save up to 40% with sale prices throughout the holiday season. Plus, you’ll find even bigger discounts during Walmart Black Friday.
Walmart has 55 toys on their 2023 toy list, and nearly half are under $25.

Unlike the semi-annual Walmart Toy Clearance, when deals are only available in stores, you can shop Walmart’s Top Toy List online at Walmart.com, too.
The top toys are even available for Walmart pickup, whether you choose to grab them curbside or at the in-store pickup location. You can also buy toys via Walmart delivery and get them as soon as the same day, or opt for express or two-day delivery.
Don’t forget — you’ll have to spend at least $35 online to get Walmart free shipping, but Walmart Plus members get free two-day shipping with no purchase minimums. However, Walmart pickup options are free no matter what.
