Google searches are generally a pretty decent barometer of what is popular and this year, everyone’s favorite digital conglomerate is using their search data to predict toy popularity as we enter the holiday shopping season.
Google tracked activity across their Google Shopping platform recently and used the data to predict the 10 toys users are most interested in this holiday season. Somewhat surprising to me is how similar this list is to what it would’ve been when I was a child. American Girl, My Little Pony, LEGO, Barbie, Nerf- quite the blast from the past. Not quite sure who I would buy a Ouija Board for as a present, but hey, whatever.
Here is a quick little infographic Google whipped up to show off their top trending toy results. Enjoy!
