If you’re already itching to do some holiday shopping, Amazon has you covered.
The online retail giant announced its annual “Toys We Love List” is “longer than ever before” for the 2021 holiday season.
Amazon’s announcement comes just as many leading toy companies have stated a global shipping crisis and labor shortages in the toy market could affect the holiday shopping season. With Black Friday only two months away, toy companies like Hasbro, Mattel and MGA Entertainment are warning parents to get holiday shopping done early.
Amazon did not say what led the following toys to make the cut, but here’s a compiled list of some of the company’s picks, separated by category.
