There are two types of people in the world: those who love surprises and those who avoid them at all costs. But with surprise toys becoming the most popular gifts to unwrap, no one really minds receiving these adorable surprises for the holidays — or any fun occasion.
Surprise toys aren’t necessarily a new concept, but they continue to be a BIG thing. The family-friendly YouTube show, Ryan’s World, is likely the catalyst for kicking off the unboxing trend, racking up billions upon billions of views — and millions of fans. The vlog, created by Ryan’s parents in 2015, highlights Ryan and his siblings unboxing and reviewing toys.
And now, almost every toy brand has some kind of surprise toy in their lineup; whether it’s Barbie’s changing hair color, a dino in an egg, or a puppy that poops.
These are the newest batch of surprise toys with top-rated reviews to shop now:
