2019 Hottest Toys for the Holidays

RetailMeNot released a list of the hottest toys for the 2019 holiday season. In past years, they have predicted the Fingerlings, Hatchimals, and the NES Classic Edition to be some of the most popular toys.

With Toys R’ Us no longer an option for shopping, RetailMeNot shares that most consumers will be shopping at Amazon, Target, and Walmart. Here’s the list of the predicted hottest toys.



Rizmo is predicted to be the top toy of 2019. The plush creature from outer space evolves, sings and makes music in different genres. The more you play with Rizmo, the faster it magically grows! The toy comes in three colors and with seven games.

2Hatchimals Wow Llacorn


The latest in the Hatchimals family is Llalacorn, a llama-unicorn hybrid that can hatch and re-hatch over and over again. This creature grows up to 2 1/2 feet tall with more than 250 different reactions, sounds, motions and more.

3Skyrocket Blume Doll


Blume Dolls have been anticipated all year. They come in a flower pot, and when you add water, they sprout and grow. It’s a surprise as to which Blume Doll you’ll get, and spoiler alert: there are 22 to collect.

9Ninetendo Switch Lite


The new Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, cheaper alternative to the Nintendo Switch, making it ideal for travel and taking with you. The key differences—aside from size— are your television and the games available to play. The standard Switch is a hybrid console that can work as a handheld machine or with a dock that allows you to play games on your TV. The Switch Lite, however, is mobile-only and doesn’t connect to a larger screen. It also doesn’t have removable controllers on its side. The Lite is made to play with handheld games, and will only work with Nintendo Switch games that support handheld mode. The system comes in three colors: yellow, turquoise and gray.
