Collectible action figures have been around for decades but licensed dolls get more popular every year. If you’re looking for Harry Potter gifts, you can’t go wrong with these Harry and Hermione dolls. Now remember when we mentioned Toy Story 4? Well we can’t forget about Bo Peep, can we? She’s back in “action doll” form, which basically just means “action figure”. With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coming out soon, Star Wars toys like these Star Wars Black Series Rey and BB-8 figures and this adorable Porg plush make great stocking stuffers. (More on plushes later!) And finally, X-Men fans would love to receive these Marvel Legends collectible action figures!

We’re in the middle of a board game renaissance right now, which means that board games make great gifts for adults and kids! We carry all kinds of board games at Fun.com. First off, there are licensed and themed versions of all your favorite classic board games. One example is Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit, which is the perfect gift for anyone who likes Harry Potter and games. The same with Avengers Monopoly, except substitute “Harry Potter” with “Avengers” and…well, we think you get the idea. Funko’s new Funkoverse titles also make giftable pop culture tie-in games! Now if you need the best board games for adults, you’re probably looking for something with a little more challenge. You might want to pick up the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, which is like a cross between role-playing games and strategy board games, but as a card game! The Zombicide series is also one of the more popular cooperative board games out there.

Craft kits and STEM are the hottest new thing in toys. First let’s talk about STEM toys! As you may be aware, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These toys are educational, but they teach important lessons about science through play instead of books! Our STEM toys range from programmable robots to engineering projects to chemistry-based candy makers. Craft kits are also incredibly popular right now. They’re all about hands-on fun, teaching about art, slime, building, more slime, glitter, and how not to get glue all over the place! And, you know, slime.

Sometimes you just want a toy that you can squeeze and throw around or maybe even talk to. That’s where plushes and other animal toys come in. Animal plushes were initially made for kids, of course, but some of these are so adorable that adults love them, too. They’re really the perfect gift for anyone who loves something cute! You’ll find plenty of licensed plushes based on trending franchises, like the Minecraft llama plush or the Fortnite llama Pillow Buddy. (Llamas are also popular!) Some animal toys are interactive, like the Lil’ Critters Hippo from VTech or Hedwig from Harry Potter. These toys are great to talk to, but don’t be surprised if they talk back! Okay fine, they probably won’t “talk” back to you, but they can respond to cries, calls, and claps!
