While it’s always hard to fulfil all your kids’ Christmas wishes, some presents are more wanted than others.

While many regard the season as the best time of the year, it is so easy to disappoint a child by not fulfilling their wishes and getting them the Christmas present they so wanted. Like every year, some children’s toys are in higher demand this year, and if you’re unlucky you might miss out altogether.

For Christmas 2022, Barbie tops the list of the most in-demand children’s toys. In fact, according to data by Zendbox, the Barbie Dreamhouse is the most popular by a large margin.

The Barbie Dreamhouse has been searched for over 90,000 times in the last month alone, so if your kids have hinted that it’s on their list, it’s a good time to try and retrieve one before the shelves run empty. The popular doll takes a total of five spots on the top 30, with number two on the list being the Barbie Dream Camper.

Some toys never run out of fashion, and LEGO is once again one of the most in-demand toys for Christmas 2022. The LEGO Friends Horse Show Trailer, LEGO Technic Monster Jam Megalodon and the LEGO City Express Passenger Train are all high-demand toys that many kids can’t wait to unwrap from under the tree this year.

Gilson Pereira, Marketing Director at Zendbox, said: “With the countdown to Christmas just around the corner, you may be wondering what to get your little one. With ever-expanding ranges and new releases, it can be tricky to decide what toys your child will love the most this Christmas if they haven’t provided a list.

“Even when the kids have decided on what they’d like, the next step is sourcing the gifts, with the best-sellers each year often selling out due to high demand. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the top 30 most searched for toys within the past month so that you can check out what industry experts and parents are expecting to be a big hit this year – and also what has the potential to sell out.

“Online retailers themselves can use these findings to get ahead of the online giants and maximise sales. Around November 22nd is when parents appear to start searching for that perfect gift, so don’t leave it too late to secure the toy you have your eye on with plenty of time before others beat you to it!”
