Whether toy novelties or classics: outdoor toys were a toy trend in 2023 and will clearly also be one of the toy trends in 2024. The versatile toys create lots of play opportunities and invite your child to enjoy enriching outdoor experiences.
Kids in particular, who are normally difficult to entice out of the house, get moving with trendy outdoor toys.

As mentioned at the beginning, role-playing toys are still very much in vogue. No wonder: they allow your child to slip into different roles, take on new perspectives and let off steam creatively. This results in a huge amount of fun with lots of possibilities.

For example, your child can set sail with the RC fire boat and try out what it feels like to be a brave firefighter fighting dangerous fires. They can take on the role of a police officer in action with the  Police SUV or adopt the perspective of a construction worker at the wheel of a  Volvo dump truck. Anything they can think up is possible! The varied role-playing games encourage your child's imagination and allow them to explore their own personality with all its sides and facets.

The world of new toys - What else will be hot next year?

In the world of toys, new toys and tried-and-tested toys come together. Both components shape current trends among children, with new toys often being inspired by traditional toys. Two developments can be observed in the 2023 toy trends. On the one hand, cool toys with modern technologies will be very popular, while on the other, a return to classic toys cannot be denied. These two developments are also likely to influence children's toy innovations in 2024.

Toy novelties: Apps and games in the toy world

A good example of the meeting of new approaches and the tried and tested is the integration of modern technologies into traditional toys. For example, remote-controlled vehicles are being given new, interactive functions, making them even more popular toys. The result is new toys that combine the advantages of classic and modern toys. The aforementioned Dickie Toys musical vehicles demonstrate how this balancing act works.

In general, children are also increasingly engaging with age-appropriate apps. A clear toy trend is also evident here: applications that offer a learning effect as well as entertainment are particularly popular .

The return of the toy classics

The antithesis to the innovative, technology-driven toy novelties are toy classics. Some of these return in a familiar style, while others are equipped with new elements and are just as appealing to children today as they were back then. The new editions of the great classics create a connection between players of different generations and show that the wheel does not necessarily have to be reinvented for maximum fun.

Puzzle games

Toys that effectively encourage development have earned a firm place among the toy trends. Accordingly, puzzles, building blocks and the like are also among the new toy products for 2024. After all, these children's toys are known for their playful promotion of spatial thinking and fine motor skills.

Toys for playing together

In addition, products that appeal to children's social skills will dominate the toy trends of 2024. This primarily refers to new children's toys that your child can play with together with others. This is because playing together - for example with the Dickie Toys  Stack and Store Transporter - goes hand in hand with interpersonal interaction and trains social skills. Unlike when playing alone, children have to talk to each other when they play together. They have to listen to the wishes and concerns of their fellow players, learn to communicate their own needs and sometimes find a compromise. These are all valuable experiences that will help your child to become more confident in interpersonal relationships.

Creative toys (e.g. painting and craft sets)

Space for creativity and relaxation is worth its weight in gold in these fast-moving times. This is clearly underlined by the toy trends. It is not without reason that many parents and children consciously choose creativity toys, such as painting and craft sets. The products that you can purchase from Schipper in outstanding quality offer space for artistic ideas and at the same time train your child's fine motor skills.

Educational toys

It is hardly surprising that educational toys fit perfectly into the 2024 toy trends. After all, these cool toys are characterized by the fact that they convey learning content and promote important skills. Combining learning and play is rightly always in vogue , and this is of course also possible with toy cars from Dickie Toys. Using realistically designed vehicles, such as the  VW Tiguan Police, you can explain to your child how motorized means of transport work and which components each vehicle needs to drive. You can also use several cars to familiarize your child with the most important traffic rules and teach them how to behave safely on the road.

Musical instruments for children

Your child's musical development is also not neglected with the 2024 toy novelties. Musical instruments suitable for children encourage them to engage with music and train their fine motor skills and ability to concentrate. Making music together also creates a sense of belonging and conveys an understanding of good teamwork.

Wooden toys - Environmentally friendly materials

As sustainability and environmental protection play a major role nowadays, wooden toys are also among the toy trends. These classics stimulate motor skills, promote creativity and also impress with their pleasant feel and connection to nature.
