The Toys That Are Big Sellers During the Pandemic

Kids have obviously been staying at home more during the pandemic. 

And this means they've had more "playtime."

But what toys are they playing with?  

Now before we jump into the toys, I want to remind you of something.  You may be asking, "Why do I need to know what toys kids are playing with?" 

The reason we need to know what toys are popular right now is because we are missionaries to kids. 

When a missionary goes to another country, they seek to learn all they can about the people that live there and their culture.  What are their traditions?  What foods do they eat?  What kind of clothes do they wear?  What traditions and holidays do they celebrate?  

You and I are missionaries to kids.  Which, BTW is the greatest mission field in the world.  So it's important to learn all we can about what they like and don't like. 

Here's the challenge.  Take these toys that are hot sellers right now and bring them up in casual conversation with the kids you minister to.  It will put you on common ground and the kids will be impressed that you took the time to enter their world.  This will open their hearts to your message. 

So without further ado, here are some of the top selling toys during the pandemic.
