Whether you need presents to wrap and place under the tree, swap at a gift exchange, or even to give yourself, we’ll show you what’s hot right now. We’re experts at suggesting and selling fun gifts—we are FUN.com, after all—so listen up because we’ve got some great new toys and games to talk about!
Action Figures and Collectibles for Your Collection
If you’re shopping for a kid who loves action figures, then you’ve come to the right place. With movies like Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel breaking all the box office records, everyone’s looking for Avengers action figures. Toy Story action figures are also hot right now thanks to the return of Woody and Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 4. You’ll also find plenty of awesome retro action figures, like Pennywise from 1990’s It, Jason action figures from all of the classic Friday the 13th films, and even Johnny from Karate Kid. We should also mention that adult kids also love these figures because they’re collectibles!

She’s back in “action doll” form, which basically just means “action figure”.

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.

One example is Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit, which is the perfect gift for anyone who likes Harry Potter and 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.
STEM Toys and Craft Kits Make Great Gifts
|Ozobot Evo Coding Robot||Lego Gadgets Activity Kit||Space Shuttle Play Set||NASA Apollo Lunar Module Model Kit|
|Nickelodeon Galactic Slime||Glitter Face Mask Activity Kit||Candy Science STEM Kit||Leapfrog Shapes & Sharing Picnic Basket|
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.
Lego Sets of All Kinds!
We’re proud to say that you can now buy Lego gifts at Fun.com! We carry their most popular lines, from the licensed sets to Lego Creator, Lego Duplo, Lego Classic, and more. We even carry Lego apparel! Some of the best Lego sets you’ll find at Fun.com include the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon and the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express. (As you can probably tell from reading this article, Harry Potter merchandise is also in right now!) These Lego sets include everything you need to build a fun playset plus Lego minifigures for hours of play. Lego toys have never not been popular, which makes these great gifts for kids and collectors!
You'll Love These Adorable Animal Plushes
|Squishmallow Humphrey the Hamster Plush||Wild Fox Pillow Pets||Pill Bug Plush||VTech Lil' Critters Hippo|
|Harry Potter Interactive Hedwig||Minecraft Llama Plush||Totoro Backpack||Fortnite Llama Pillow Buddy|
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!
Amazing Vehicles and Remote-Control Toys
Remote-control vehicles are another trending category of gifts this time of year. And they’re not just monster trucks and racing cars anymore! Sure, you can still find them, but you can also buy r/c drone helicopters and r/c toys for girls. Train sets like the Lionel Hogwarts Express and Thoms & Friends trains are also fun for kids and adults alike! The Mega Bloks John Deere and Cat dump trucks make great rugged gifts for kids who break everything you put in front of them. On the other end of the toy spectrum are detailed collectible vehicles. The Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters and Sheriff Hopper’s 1980 Blazer from Stranger Things are two of our faves!
