Here are the 45 hottest holiday toys of 2022 on kids’ wishlists
With nearly 1,000 Christmas wish letters submitted, here are the 45 most requested items kids are obsessing over this holiday season. Now is the best time to get the best deals in town if you plan on shopping this weekend.
Always wanted to help Christmas Wish and didn’t know how?
It’s been a very difficult year for many of our neighbors, and that’s why we want to help bring the Christmas spirit into their homes. There are so many ways to help out with the Christmas Wish mission. We have nearly 1,000 wish letters in the system (11/2/2022), so we have a good idea of the hottest toys. If you’re shopping during Black Friday, keep an eye out for sales on the items kids want the most this holiday season.
Below are the best toys that have been requested so far. Because we know what we’ve bought throughout the year, I’ve added a note to let you know which items we’re missing and need the most. Last year we gave away over 30,000 toys, hundreds of winter coats, gloves/mittens and hundreds of diapers to put it all into perspective.
NEARLY 1,000 CHRISTMAS LETTERS RECEIVED TO DATE
Before we get to the hottest toys, this year’s letter trend is alarming. 70% of letter submissions ask for clothing. 25% ask for simple things like socks and underwear. Many simply ask for personal hygiene products. In my seven years as director of Christmas Wish, this is the most requests I have seen. We provide new winter coats to any child who needs them, but only provide clothing if we have it on hand. We focus more on toys for the kids and a Christmas meal for the family. If you can donate socks, underwear or pajamas, that would be greatly appreciated.
