Tiny but mighty. That just about sums up the collectibles toy category, which year after year proves its dominance. The mini must-haves rank high on kids’ wish lists, and often feature hundreds to collect. Lucky for parents, these small, sought-after toys are often affordable, so as kids scour high and low to complete their collection with every blind bag, rare, ultra rare, and limited edition item in the collection, it will have minimal damage on their wallets.
Some of these teeny, tiny toys are already flying off shelves, and hold a coveted spot on The Toy Insider’s Hot 20 holiday toy list, which is featured in our annual Holiday Gift Guide. Fingerlings, from WowWee, are adorable baby monkeys that wrap around kids’ fingers and interact with them to let kids know how they feel. Additionally, kids everywhere want to get their hands on MGA Entertainment’s L.O.L. Surprise Tots, a miniature collectible toy line that feature seven layers of surprises to unwrap.
There’s plenty more where that came from. Check out a few other collectibles that are taking the toy aisles by storm!
