Welcome to the Spring & Summer Toy Guide!

The Toy Insider’s Spring & Summer Toy Guide features six categories of spring and summer toys, assisting gift-givers in selecting the best and hottest toys for the outdoor and travel season! Our team of experts tests thousands of toys currently on the market in order to help you sort through the toy aisles before you even hit the store. Whether your kids are running around in the yard or taking a trip to Grandma’s, we’ve got you covered!

We’ve created a list that is jam-packed with play value and includes something for kids of all ages and interests. We’re here to help out in the search for toys that provide active and engaging play that lasts for hours and helps kids shut down their devices and enjoy the great outdoors.

Our six categories—Outdoor, Water, Travel Toys & Games, Physical/Active Toys, Nature & Educational Toys, and Entertainment Toys—offer a variety of products for both boys and girls of all ages!

Now in its 11th year, The Toy Insider is made up of a panel of industry experts that review thousands of products throughout the year. As parents first and toy experts second, the team reviews each product to evaluate product features and overall value, narrowing their selections to the best of the best.
