PARENTS released this year's list of Best Toys, recognizing the 45 top new playthings for every child in 2020. Selected by the editors following a months-long research process complete with kid-testing, the list of winners is available now on Parents.com/BestToys and in the December issue of PARENTS magazine, available November 6.
"In 2020, families found themselves sheltering at home with limited childcare, and so PARENTS set out to find them new toys to keep their kids engaged, entertained and playing independently—without screens! Our vetted list of nearly 50 toys promises to make the winter months of social distancing more fun for everyone," says Julia Edelstein, PARENTS magazine Editor-in-Chief. "And, we're thrilled to debut this list just in time for the holiday season to help make shopping for gifts a little easier."
PARENTS editors consulted with experts and had 60 families across the country test toys from a pool of more than 500 new products to determine the 45 winners. With options for kids of all ages, the toys on this year's list are screen-free, sustain interest, please parents and cost no more than $100.
