5 Hot Toys We’re Loving Right Now for Christmas ’19

It's time to start honing in on toys since the holiday madness is around the bend. These are five hot toys (O.K., six) that just may get your kids off of their duffs, er, devices, for a second!

It's no secret that toys have to compete with tech today, so get ready for some terrific play items in our ongoing holiday preview. Kids need plenty of playtime — just schedule it for them if they're hooked to a device. Oh, and the photo above? It's the Blume Dolls, naturally. Each doll comes within a flower … kids sprinkle water on top to make them grow. When the pot opens, it becomes a cute play set with surprise accessories. Purchase here.
