Target Picks Hot Holiday Toys


Target has unveiled its pick of this year’s top holiday toys with a new, expanded top gifts list and a host of online and in-home resources for parents.

For the first time, electronics, video games and sporting goods join toys on Target’s list of items that kids will be coveting this year.

The list of this year’s items is featured on the Target website, and the retailer’s annual kids’ gift catalog will arrive in homes and on in early November.

“Before parents can start shopping for holiday gifts, they need to solve the puzzle of what their kids want most, which often extends beyond the toy aisles,” says Scott Nygaard, senior vice president, merchandising, hard lines, Target. “Target offers guests tools to build their lists, including a dedicated online portal, our annual kids’ gifts catalog and the Kids’ Gift Detective, who brings some lighthearted fun to list building.”
