Popular Christmas gifts in 2018

Popular Christmas gifts in 2018

Joshua Biser, Co-editor

With each passing year, new products are released, with varying degrees of success.  The lucky few, however,  rise to immense popularity, sometimes for years to come.  When something becomes so successful, it is often a very popular Christmas gift, and can often be very hard to find the closer it gets to Christmas.

 

Hatchimals

One of the most must have toys of the year was also one of the hottest toys of 2017.  The idea of them is to, well, hatch an egg, and take care of whatever animal is inside of it.  The toy has been insanely popular in the past year, and will likely be a popular toy this Christmas

 

Playstation 4

With many popular releases for the Playstation 4, such as Spiderman,  Red Dead Redemption 2, and God of War, it’s not surprising that the console is in popular demand for those who don’t already own it.  This doesn’t include other incredibly successful titles that the console already had to it’s name,  such as Grand Theft Auto V and Destiny.

 

Harry Potter Hogwarts Grand Hall LEGO Kit

Both Harry Potter and LEGO  have been incredibly successful. So, naturally, putting the two together creates a must have product.  This massive lego set is one of Amazon’s top holiday toys this season, and will likely be a popular gift this christmas

 

Nintendo Switch

Another console that, while not having released this year, still commands a lot of attention due to releases that happened earlier this month, this includes Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let’s Go: Pikachu and Eevee.  Not to mention the games released last year, one of which won game of the year in 2017, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
